  1. 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.
  2. He's actually a pretentious Scottish fop.
  3. Sorry to disappoint you, but "King Solomon's Mines" isn't widescreen, either. Technicolor, yes, but in 1950 everything was pretty much square.
  4. > {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.

  7. Oh, yeah, she gets full marks for knowing the adverbal form of "snark."
  8. 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.

I haven't seen the restored version in years. Could it be in the restored version? It's Jane Wyatt, not Jane Wyman!

  12. 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 M

  16. > "The Producers--spoofy remake of New Faces of 1937." THE PRODUCERS is more directly derivative of THE FALCON IN HOLLYWOOD, in which George Sanders's detective character uncovers a scheme by a movie producer to oversell investments in his latest film -- just like in Mel's movie, only without the yuks. {quote:title=Sepiatone wrote:}{quote} There's a scene at the end of *Patton* in which a George C.

  22. Fox's back lot was actually sold off piecemeal, starting in the late 1950's; the past parcel didn't go until 1978. It later became an article of faith to blame CLEOPATRA 's runaway budget for the studio's selling off the real estate, but the deals had already been put in place before a penny was ever charged against CLEO 's production costs (which were still fairly modest as late as 1961).
  23. The claim makes no sense. An actor's total wealth derived from his or her screen work (as opposed to investments he or she may have made with those earnings) that doesn't include a standard percentage of the first-dollar box office grosses (and from films that consistently do big business at the box office) is the ONLY thing that will put him or her anywhere near the top of the list. Jackson's simply never been one of those actors to be offered that kind of deal on a consistent basis, irrespective of how often he works. He is, after all, a CHARACTER actor. No, the wealthiest actor on t
