Few directors or producers will take a chance on an unknown. Production time is so valuable that they are inclined to play safe and pick camera veterans for even minor roles. Retakes are very costly. While making "The Iron Cage, Mr. Wilder noted that Cesar Romero's stand-in, Phil Harron, had an engaging personality. Work- ng as an extra, between his stand-in chores, Phil carried himself with the calm assurance and poise of an old trouper. Upon completion of "The Iron Cage," Wilder went into a huddle with production chief. Bill Stevens, and when they started their next picture, 'The Vicious Cirle," young Harron was included n the cast. Phil plays a doctor n the new picture. It's only a minor role, but he handles it very well. * * • A break like this in invaluable to a newcomer. When casting directors ask wnat he has done betor«N i he.carv ) refer them to a, nrhiehthe wu« ,includo0. serves', a* a showcase^ When other directors are con* sidering him for a part, they can run the picture in tne studio projection room and see a sample of his wares. Young people with talent should pray lor more uireciors like Wm. Wilder! * * • Having been a stand-in gives Phil Harron a distinct advantage over the average movie aspirant. Standing-in, he has learned to move in his own invisible path of lighting without obstructing the light paths of other players, iie'll know how to keep from throwing shadows on other players. He has learned to come to the toe markings on stage floors without looking for them. These marks designate focal lengths. Being "lit" for his star he has, become familiar with lighting and position procedure. All these things have become' mechanical actions to him. Unlike thi n.'W player he can concentrate entirely on his acting. He'll come to his positions without worrying about hitting the right mark for camera focus and lighting. Remembering his lines of dialogue and manner of delivery will be his only new experience. He'll do the rest automatically. Remember that name, Phil Harron. You may see a lot of the youngster in the next few years. * * * On the next stage to where the Wilder company is shooting, Don Stewart, the special eifects man is having his troubles. Don is spraying oil, and a secret combination of chemicals, on an electric hot plate. Object: Creation ol a nice thick London fog. It must not be so heavy' as to obscure the players from the cameras, yet it has to be thick enough to simulate the real thing.
