   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Here's a three minute plus clip from "When the Daltons Rode"

   StormCnter  The clip is followed by the full movie if anyone is interested.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1940 film. There should be several familiar names among this lineup. Since the photo does not list the names and I can only identify four of them. See if you can pin names to the faces in the photo. Here is the major cast:
Randolph Scott as Tod Jackson
Kay Francis as Julie King
Brian Donlevy as Grat Dalton
George Bancroft as Caleb Winters
Broderick Crawford as Bob Dalton
Stuart Erwin as Ben Dalton
Andy Devine as Ozark Jones
Frank Albertson as Emmett Dalton
Mary Gordon as Ma Dalton
Harvey Stephens as Rigby

   MeiDei  Going with what I think I know from l to r: 2nd Andy Devine, Randolph Scott, Kay Francis, Broderick Crawford. Absolutely no idea of fellow far right. Guessing the fellow far left is Brian Donlevy based on his willow's peak. No title.

   Richdet  OK, I can definitely rule out Brian Donlevy -- I know his face well; he is not in this picture. George Bancroft (star of one of my favorite silents, "Sunrise" ) seems to me to have more of a big rugged look, and would be well along in middle age by 1940, so I am ruling him out too.

I am about 96.7 percent certain the man on the left is Stu Erwin. And pretty sure, but not as sure, that the man on the right is Frank Albertson.

As for the movie title, that I don't have even a hunch about.
About an hour ago .

   StormCnter  Oh, y'all are good! As I said, the photo didn't include names. I tend to agree the man on the left is a slimmer Stu Erwin and I'm not familiar with Frank Albertson, so I'll bow to Rich's opinion.

The title is 1940's "When the Daltons Rode". I'll post a clip if one is available

"Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale... if somebody told you I was just your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world... somebody lied."

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  On a movie set, who are these people? The guy at the right is the cinematographer and is unnamed in the photo.

   Gram77  Wow, how young is Brando in this picture?

   MeiDei  Is that Anna Magnani in black & John Q something in back??
3 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Yes, she is Magnini, but the guy in back is not an actor but is the director of the movie. Well-known, as is the skinny blonde next to Magnini.

   Richdet  Brando (who would have been in his mid-30s ), Joanne Woodward, Magnani, and (behind her ) Sidney Lumet the director. The movie would be "The Fugitive Kind," from a Tennessee Williams play titled "Orpheus Descending." Vanessa Redgrave played the Magnani role in a remake (using the original play's title ), shown recently on TCM.

Brando and Magnani had associations with earlier works by Williams, so this would be a reunion of sorts. Lumet was a very prolific director, behind numerous films featured on this Wall. He also was much married. Lena Horne was his mother-in-law for a time. And Gloria Vanderbilt was one of his wives.

The cinematographer I am not sure about.

   StormCnter  A joint effort by Gram, Mei and Rich. Well answered.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Hedda Hopper touted her as one of the brightest of the upcoming young stars in Hollywood, she broke off her romance with Anthony Quinn for the guy in this photo. She suffered an injury to one leg during a filming and later was diagnosed with tumors in the leg. When she broke the leg in a kitchen fall and was hospitalized, doctors couldn't remove the tumors, so amputated her leg. She wore her new prosthetic leg at her wedding She died of cancer six months after her 21st birthday. At one fanpage devoted to her, it is stated her new husband was emotionally devastated when her last whispered word was "Tony". Who are these young actors?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  It happened in May, 1946, at the home of Tyrone Power. Party guests included Gene Tierney and her then-husband Oleg Cassini, Caesar Romero, Rex Harrison and his then-wife Lili Palmer. Also in attendance was an emerging star and his wife. During a game of charades, the young woman opened a basement door and fell 20 feet. She died of her injuries, leaving behind her husband and two sons, ages 3 and 6 months.

The "emerging star" became a huge star over his long film career and is a frequent subject of quizzes on this Wall. Who was he?

   Richdet  David Niven.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Ok, this quiz is "name the couple". The excerpt is from Radar.
"Aging exes (? and ? ) reunited at a mysterious German clinic with ties to a controversial doctor specializing in “fountain of youth” cures — including stem cell therapy!

In a bombshell exclusive, Radar caught the couple making a hush-hush visit to the ultra-private ACQUA Klinik in Leipzig — and (his ) wife was nowhere in sight!...Sources believe the stars are seeking the fountain of youth (he's 67, she's 59 ) — either through stem cell treatments unavailable in America or Dr. Bader’s “miracle” ointment to stimulate the body’s self-healing powers.

   StormCnter  Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.
