    Intermissions

    No, Ray, the intermissions in 1950's 3-D films were to give the projectionist the opportunity to change reels, since both projectors in the typical booth were required to show each reel -- of which there were two -- one for the red anaglyph, and one for the green.

    He's actually a pretentious Scottish fop.

    Macomber Affair

    Sorry to disappoint you, but "King Solomon's Mines" isn't widescreen, either. Technicolor, yes, but in 1950 everything was pretty much square.

    What movie is this?

    > {quote:title=fredbaetz wrote:}{quote}The story goes that Cagney was on suspension from Warner Bros. and was cast in a uncredited extra part in "Mutiny on the Bounty". It's suppose to be toward the beginning of the film, but like you, I've never been able to find him... The young David Niven's supposed to be in MUTINY, but I've never been able to find him, either.

    Ray Harryhausen Critters...

    Oh, yeah, she gets full marks for knowing the adverbal form of "snark."

    Ray Harryhausen Critters...

    I wrote "Ray Harryhausen had nothing to do with JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Zero connection." Apparently feeling equal measures of insecurity and pig-headedness, Dpompper called it "snarky." It's nothing of the sort, merely unequivocal. He then dug in his heels and continued to promulgate the same misinformation that no one interested in the truth should stand for. All he had to do is look up Ray Harryhausen's filmography, a task that takes all of thirty seconds. Instead he retreated into "snarky." As such, I think he received an appropriate response.

    Bernard Herrmann

    Rare original ending of Lost Horizon.....

    > {quote:title=ValentineXavier wrote:}{quote}Fred, German Mountain Films are actually a genre, once very popular in Germany. The wiki doesn't seem to have an entry for them, but there is a bit about them under a listing for a director: > > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Fanck > > I'm pretty sure I've seen that bit of Jane Wyman waving at the returning Colman. I haven't seen the restored version in years. Could it be in the restored version? It's Jane Wyatt, not Jane Wyman!

    Ann Sheridan is NOT in TREASURE......

    I don't know who the woman in the still photo is, nor do I care. I've seen a million photos taken on sets of films with actors who weren't in the film and just "wandered" in -- typically orchestrated by the studio's publicity department -- and posed with the movie's real stars for the benefit of the film's unit still photographer. If it is Sheridan, then she's there just for show. Sheridan is almost certainly in costume for her part in SILVER RIVER, in which she co-starred with Errol Flynn, that was shooting on the Warner Bros. lot at the same time as THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE. End of mystery and unsubstantiated rumors.

So, maybe Hermann had a thing for Harryhausen AND Jules Verne?! > > I love discovering new things about old favorites! > Ray Harryhausen had nothing to do with JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH.
