Sorry don’t get The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day done, dude.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Rio Bravo has been featured before, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to run this really nice pic of director Howard Hawks holding court with his three leading men: John Wayne, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson.
I dig everything about this picture; John Wayne’s intense respect, Dean Martin playing with his gun and Ricky Nelson… well, looking like he knows he doesn’t really belong among such company.
Enjoy the picture and click on Ricky Nelson’s awkward stance to make it bigger!
Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic hates this chickenshit detail!

...I'm the motherfucking shore patrol!! As for Rio Bravo, just watched the bluray. It still holds up. Hopefully no one remakes it unless they do it like Carpenter.

Never seen Rio Bravo before and had no idea this trio was in it! That's fucking awesome!! Great shot, and thanks for the education!

Then I realized, nope, "The Last Detail." Which will also be cool. Still... "You can secure that shit, Hudson!"

That was filmed in Old Tucson? If so I probably stood on that porch like 3 times. My family lives in Tucson about 30 mins from the studio lol!

Martin is banging all the broads on the set
Jan. 20, 2011, 2:09 p.m. CST
He had talent.

Like he's wearing some sort of Mila Jovovich, Resident Evil short-shorts with gun garters.

Need to show Jerry some love. The man did invent the Dailies after all.

I got a good Martin and Lewis pic. Will run with it in a couple of weeks, probably. Already have this week picked out and written so I don't miss an entry due to my Sundancing (the festival, not the Pagan ritual).
Jan. 20, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST
...and it just pissed me off again cuz I read where they are remaking some more Lewis Films. Though The Nutty Professor wasn't bad, and Lewis is supposed to be involved, still, more fuckin remakes!

Something to do with the lighting around his head I think.

It's like a photo of Stalin in reverse.

after The Searchers. Isn't it weird how many westerns back then would have these strange Music numbers (as in this film) or out of the blue comedy bits (liek in The Searchers) ? It always struck me as weird and interesting.... Added an entirely new layer to those films.

The light source creating the shadow against the wall is picture right, but the light source on Nelsons face is camera left.
Jan. 20, 2011, 6:20 p.m. CST
Yup, there is definitely something hinky with this shot....
Jan. 20, 2011, 6:42 p.m. CST
The shadows on the faces are all wrong. Right? Am I just crazy? It just looks really weird to me.
Jan. 20, 2011, 6:57 p.m. CST
Great cast. Great picture. Love it. It is right up there with The Searchers.
Jan. 20, 2011, 7:11 p.m. CST
remember, this is on set back in the day. they had to light things like CRAZY to get everything to show up properly. I think the double shadow effect is just due to the fact they probably had a big "sun" light up, and maybe the camera that took this had a flash that gave the left to right shadows on the faces. the shadows on the back wall are super defined, very focused light, maybe a spot, and the face shadows could be mostly ambient light plus a little. but more importantly, who the hell would fake this? it's an awful lot of trouble for, well....getting on BTTS on AICN? no offense to Quint or this column (which I love), but I think if people have talent for this type of stuff, they'll be spending their time making, like, fake X-Men posters to dupe...oh wait. ;o)

fuck all these old pictures. lets try to at least get some color or maybe actors that are still living onto this thing.

I'll paraphrase: "John Wayne crapped bigger'n you." Flame me all ya want, but it doesn't make that fact any less true.

Love Hawks big trousers too. Oh, and of course it goes without saying that the film is A FUCKING CLASSIC. Thanks Quint, kids today need to be reminded that some of this old stuff is gold stuff.
