WHERE TO GO ^B I /SW^^R I M ^^i^^ 2-Alflona (la.) Upper Dei Moinet Tuesday, February 14, 1956 Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif.— We saw an old friend hit by a truck and dragged to a violent death, todny! And, frankly, we enjoyed the experience! However, the "accident" wns only n well conceived nnd executed stunt pel-formed by two old friends. Stuntrnan Bob Morgan, who is playing a difficult role in "Death of a Scoundrel," 1 did his own stunt work, as the "accident" victim. Carey Lofton, one of the best stunt drivers to ever hit Filmland, drove the truck. Alex McLean their mastetplece of liming lopped an enjoyable day. We had dropped in at the Snmuel Goldwyn Studio to visit another old friend, the amazing George Moscow. George hns produced any number of his own pictures. A man who has learned every phase of picture-production from shooting techniques to releasing procedure and from exhibition to the intricacies of film financing, George will even back an occasional picture 'when the story and unit, you can safely bet thd family jewels that it will chalk up a tremendous total at the .til! of anybody's box-office. Ho sometimes takes over the business management of a picture fot a friend of exceptional creative ability, relieving him of the multiple executive problems ol production. Which is exactly vvhnt wns occupying the Moscow talents when we visited "Death of a Scoundrel." Raymond Loveall Producer-director Charles Martin Was concentrating his full bag of creative tricks on bring- a fine picture, free of the hampering cares of production i-oulinc. With nn excellent, rcs- feonslve cast of versatile artists, Martin was molding their characterizations into a harmonious blend of entertaining screen-fare. And what performances he was getting!, XTo start with, his cast contained George Sanders, Yvonne tie Carlo, Zsa Zsa Gnbor, Naqdy Gates, George Brent, Coleen Gray, Lisa Ferraday, Victor Jury, Tom Conway, Bob Morgan and Ce!ia Lovsky. .There's a 'one-take" cast, if you ever saw one!

"FEARLESS PAGAN", with JANET LEIGH CARLETON CARPENtER NOW thru THURS. FRESHESf TECHNICOLOR COMEDY OMTHE With camera - wizard James Wong Howe performing h i s mood-lighting magic, a good shooting script, George Moscow to pilot production through any rouKh-«shpals and a 20th Century- Fox release for his picture, what more could a capable creative director ask? Youjl, never forget the scene where beautiful Yvonne de Carlo discovers the blood-spattered accident victim is her film husband. Bob Morgan. Bob is her real-life hubby, too! Perhaps a very real emotion was added to Yvonne's artistry as an acrtress. She had just seen Bob do a stunt that, to even the experienced eyes of stunt-men, was a truly terrifying feat, fraught with danger. A split-second of faulty timing aim there'd have been no necessity for makeupman Carlie Taylor to smear her hubby's face with prop blood! Who can say that, underlying Yvonne's histrionic terror, there wasn't a deeper fright still clutching at her heart? Carrell M. Erdman 'Carlie Taylor, makeupman for the "Death of a Scoundrel" troupe) has had his share of off-beat assignments, of late. In "The Day The World Ended," Paul Dubov was the horribly burned radiation victim. Day after day, Carlie had to reproduce the same intricate blister;;, tiny scars and seared skin. From ..this film, Garlic went to one of the Frank Ferrin tele- films where he created the makeup of an ancient Hindu jnonkey- vendor. With surgical liquid- plastic, and many other items of nakeup that Carlie declines to •eveal, he turned a young player 'nto a pouchy-eyed, pock-marked sariah, wrinkled by countless /ears and marked by the ravages if disease. Carlie Taylor mentions this character with a slight •hiver as )u- savs: "After reach- nil ;i ci'i-'.-iin point, in this makeup job. I'd hegin to dread touching i'. myself!" How realistic •an ynu .ucr! RJ'la Moreno, the girl Upstairs, and Tom Ewell, harassed husband of a WAF lieu tenant played by Sheree North, find affinity in this scene from "The Lieutenant Wore Skirls/' next Sunday'*^, attraction at the Algona ihea- er.
