Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I quite enjoy this BTS sub-genre of actors celebrating their birthdays on their sets. I ran a few a while back from Son of Frankenstein with Boris Karloff in full Monster gear had some cake with Basil Rathbone. Today we see Peter Ustinov’s birthday while shooting Spartacus.
Ustinov is flanked by Stanley Kubrick and Kirk Douglas. The reader who sent this in pointed out the image of Ustinov on the cake looks freakishly like the older Kubrick. Notice how Kubrick is looking at that prophecy made of icing… it’s almost as if he knows that’s his future.
Tomorrow’s pic is a repeat title, something I’ve covered a few times here, but it’s too good to pass up. A certain somebody is laughing. Talkback trend followers might figure out who is the focus of the photo…
