StormCnter I stumbled across a sad and intriguing story while I was looking for something to post. Remember Paula Prentiss and her husband, Dick Benjamin? Anyone remember Paula's younger sister, Ann? She had a fairly successful film and television career but went haywire in some way and ended up in prison for terrorizing her family. She was convicted of making terrorist threats, assault with a firearm, battery, and solicitation to commit the murder of her brother-in-law Richard Benjamin and her father. She was sentenced to 19 years in jail for the crimes. She died in prison.

MeiDei For your viewing pleasure from the 1950's, the NYT review was snarky: Desert Legion 1953 Alan Ladd, Richard Conte, Arlene Dahl

StormCnter I wonder if Ladd had to stand on a box again for his scenes with Dahl. She was fairly tall.

Tulsa Searched and found this:Humphrey Bogart was 5'8" but he was concerned that audiences would notice that he was smaller than Ingrid Bergman, his co-star in Casablanca. In some scenes, Bergman was told to slouch down on a sofa – with Bogart sitting on extra cushions – to level up their heights.
The Forties film noir star Actor Alan Ladd (5'6" ), who was born on September 3, 1913, in Hot Springs, Arkansas, would sometimes stand on a box to appear taller than his female co-stars. Other tricks of the trade were to make actresses wear ballerina shoes in scenes next to short actors and tall leading ladies would sometimes stand in specially dug trenches to make them appear shorter on film. Studios would also build different sets and film short actors in the sets that made them appear taller – using shorter door frames for example.
