WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO 2-Algona (Id.) Upper Des Moines 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, today! And, frankly, we enjoyed the experience! However, the "accident"' was only a well conceived and executed stunt performed by two old friends. Stuntman Bob Morgan, who is playing a difficult i-ole in "Death of a Scoundrel," 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 maslerpiece of liming topped an enjoyable day. We had dropped in at the Samuel Goldwyn Studio to visit another old friend, the amazing George Moscow. George has 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 "package" meet with his approval. Charles Potter When George Moscow has a sLzeablc fortune riding on a film Saturday Morning 10 o'clock * * * The uproarious story of the G.I. who took his pet lion along with him when he joined the army! "FEARLESS PAGAN" with JANET LEIGH CARIETON (CARPENTER NOW thru THURS. unit, you can safely bet the family jewels that it will chalk up a tremendous total at the till erf anybody's box-office. He sometimes takes over the business management of a picture* for a friend of exceptional creative ability, relieving him of the multiple executive problems nl production. Which is exactly what was occupying the Moscow talents when we visited "Death of a Scoundrel." Raymond Loveall Producer-director Charles Marlin was concentrating his full bag of creative tricks on bringing in a fine picture, free of the hampering cares of production routine. With an excellent, responsive cast of versatile artists, Martin was molding their characterizations into a harmonious blend of entertaining screen-fare. And what performances lie was getting! To start with, his cast contained George Sanders. Yvonne cle.Carlo. Zsa Zsa Gabor, Nancy Gates, George Brent, Co- Icon Gray, Lisa Ferraday, Victor Jury, Tom Conway. Bob Morgan aad CeHa Lovsky. There's a "one-take" east, if you ever saw- one! Paul Kisch •>*•"• • -• • £»£»:*X»I*>« FRESHEST NEV/ TECHNICOLOR COMEDY With camera - wizard James Wong Howe performing his mood-lighting magic, a good shooting script, George Moscow to pilot production through any rough shoals and a 20th Century- Fox release for his picture, what more could a capable creative director ask? You'll 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 timmy ana 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 assigri'nients, 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 blisters, tirly scars and seared skin. From this film, Carlie went to one of the Frank Ferrin tele- films whcrfe he created the makeup, of an ancient Hindu monkey- vendor. -With surgical liquid- plastic, a.nd many other items of nakeup 'that Carlie declines to •eveal, he turned a young player nto a pouchy-eyed, pock-marked Dariah, wrinkled by .countless vears and marked by the ravages if disease. Garlic Taylor mentions this character with a slight •hivw as he says; "After reading a cer'nin point, In this makeup job, I'd begin to dread touching .it, myself!" How realistic •an you gel!
