I just love how the crew has to contort themselves for the filming of "Five Star Final"

Thank you, CineMaven. It's a movie that I also enjoy. It seems that Edward G. Robinson can do no wrong especially in "Double Indemnity".

Know what I mean?

I believe that the young man on his knees in the corner of the Five Star Final picture is that dynamic bundle of talent, director Mervyn Leroy, whose films during the early years of the Depression at Warner Brothers are among the best that studio produced--including this great movie about the newspaper game, which, inexplicably is not commercially available on dvd, but happily is being aired on TCM on Mar 2nd, 2009 at 12:30PM ET. If you haven't seen Five Star Final, do yourself a favor and catch this one. It has great acting and, as CineMaven mentioned, is still all too relevant a story.

I loved the photos of Susan Kohner's family over three generations too. I'm always struck by her outstanding and intelligent work in some movies. Without her solid, believable presence in some of the more dramatically outlandish movies made during brief acting career, they might have been, well, drivel. Btw, her sons, who are very successful film producers, are also the children of the late menswear designer John Weitz, a dashing figure whether serving his adopted country, the U.S., as a spy during WWII, as an industrial and clothes designer, or as a novelist. From reports from a family member who knew him in the rag trade, he was also a nice guy in a rough business.

 

As always, thanks for maintaining this thread.

 

The photo of Juanita Moore and Susan Kohner together was especially interesting. Wish that Robert Osborne could interview both ladies. It would be particularly illuminating to hear more of Juanita Moore's reflections on her long, groundbreaking career.

Thanks Moira for shedding some light on the image and pointing out the talented Mervyn Leroy.

I will be watching for "Five Star Final" in March.

 

It would be great if Robert Osborne snagged Juanita Moore and Susan Kohner for an interview.

And also Ann Blyth and Joan Leslie.

What on earth is George O'Brien covered up with? That can't be a fig leaf, and it's way more distracting than what it's covering. Isn't George O'Brien in the Silent Sundays opening? I hope that opening stays around.

Cinemafan, that is George O'Brien in the Silent Sundays opening. He was also a physique model at Fox in the 1920s (hence the image).

Mongo: "Thank you, CineMaven. It's a movie that I also enjoy. It seems that Edward G. Robinson can do no wrong especially in "Double Indemnity". Know what I mean?"

 

"Closer than that, Walter."

 

I know EXACTLY what you mean, Mongo. On that same note...Tony Curtis was expected and had to cancel. I think folks would have been over-the-moon if Marsha Hunt made an appearance with Robert O.

 

Love the photos of Susan Kohner and Juanita Moore. Thank you again for all the lovely pictures of the stars you supply your thread.

It's my pleasure CineMaven. I happen to be watching "Imitation of Life" now on TCM with Juanita Moore and Susan Kohner (both Oscar nominees for the movie).

And yes, Marsha Hunt would have been ideal.

Mongo - this is my very favorite thread - thank you so much for all these wonderful photos. I love the Marlon Brando photos you posted.....and Burt Lancaster too.

 

I'm sure you must have posted a photo somewhere in the thread of Vic Morrow - but I couldn't find it. I also like Glenn Ford and William Holden - and I'd love to see a photo of Richard Widmark if you can find one.

 

Thank you again for such an extraordinary thread of movie photos - great job!

Thank you, Movielover. I've posted images of Glenn Ford, William Holden and Richard Widmark on past pages, with more to come.

Candid images of Vic Morrow are hard to come by but I found a few which be be posted soon.
