For me always these two, Warren Stevens left, Barry Sullivan right:

:)

                     And I'm always getting these two mixed up. Whenever I see one of them,

                                         it takes me 10 minutes to figure it out.

No, actually dark, I think Fred might have been referring to Dane Clarke, who boasted a magnificent seven......inches!

 

(...that of course would be Dane Clarke the '70s porno star, NOT Dane Clark with the 1940's Warner Brothers contract)

 

;)

You really have no idea how many inches were boasted by the '40s WB star, do you?

When I was a dopey kid, years before becoming the sophisticate about movies that I am today, I used to confuse . . .

Well, according to the very first line in Dane's Wikipedia page which states the following...

 

Dane Clark (February 26, 1912 – September 11, 1998) was an American film actor who was known for playing, as he labeled himself, "Joe Average".

 

...I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess...oh...about 6 inches. ;)

Regarding the dimensions someone mentioned, this is simply relative. Any issues can be solved this way:

 

A small guy needs a small girl and a small girl needs a small guy.

 

A large guy needs a large girl, and a large girl needs a large guy.

 

The physical height of the partners is often irrelevant, as in this example:

Among the shocking revelations: first husband Mickey Rooney was such a womanizer that he cheated on Ava, then considered the most beautiful woman in the world, in their marital bed — while she was in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy.

 

“He went through the ladies like a hot knife through fudge,” she said, adding that her best friend Lana Turner — who’d slept with Rooney first — called him “Andy ****-On.”

Rod Cameron:

Don Megowan:

Excuse me here Doc, but while yes, Rod Cameron and Don Megowan DID resemble each other quite a bit, I'm PRETTY sure that the picture you posted as Megowan is actually just another picture of Cameron which somebody mislabeled as Megowan when they uploaded it into the Internet.

 

Here is a couple of pictures of Megowan....

...and notice if you will the difference in the ears between these two actors, and of which Cameron's earlobes being larger and more pronounced than Megowan's somewhat lack of same.

I think that one's a shot from 'The Werewolf' (1956). Excellent - and seemingly lost, considering how rarely seen or even mentioned it is - movie with a terrific werewolf.

Hmmmm...I don't think I've ever seen that one, dark, however you appear to agree with one Richard Brandt of Colorado Springs' assessment of this film and who's following review appears in the IMDb webpage for it....

Ever since Lon Chaney played Lawrence Talbot, werewolves have been depicted as pawns of a cruel destiny, doomed to a bad end, and this Fifties twist on the theme is no exception. That sense of our poor protagonist as a helpless victim of forces beyond his control is what sticks with me from this movie: The burden of guilt falls squarely on the shoulders of the sinister government scientists who devise this atomic-age curse, and their victim's innocence provides no redemption for him. Not sure how much of this was intentional on the part of the writers and director (Fred F. Sears, not far from helming the unfortunate shipwreck of "The Giant Claw"), but I find it superior to the rank and file of Fifties-era drive-in horror films.

You're probably right. I actually suspected that, but it was labeled Megowan so I went with it.

 

They still look a heckuva lot alike though. But the resemblance is fluid -- not quite so pronounced when Megowan is doing his "stupid" look (Don seems to have a somewhat wider range of expression than the rather grimfaced Rod).

It's a good one alright. I'm not surprised you haven't seen it - hasn't been on the tube (that I've been able to find) since 1964.

 

Considering the quality of the transformation scenes - excellent, dark, slobber-dripping human to animal, much scarier than Lon Chaney Jr.'s - how this one has been allowed to disappear is a mystery to me. And it's an intelligent werewolf movie to boot!

Maybe Swengoolie will find this little gem and show it one day...errr...night?

 

(...but then again of course, we'd have to put up with his lame jokes...which I might add are often even lamer than MINE are around here...well, okay...ALMOST as lame as mine, anyway!!!)
