Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Angie Dickinson was possibly the hottest woman on the planet when she shot Rio Bravo with Howard Hawks, John Wayne, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson. And I don’t mean just in physical attractiveness, either. Her personality shows through in every frame and I can vouch for that now since I spent Saturday morning sitting down with her discussing this film.
She is still adorable, confident and spunky to an unbelievably awesome amount (for instance, at one point we talk about Point Blank and she says “oh, what a great film… until they fucked up the ending”). That’s what makes her character, Feathers, so great in Rio Bravo; what makes her able to stand up to John Wayne so well.
So, I have a few more Angie Dickinson shots from Rio Bravo and I figured I’d run one here and save the others for the actual interview, which should hit sometime this coming week.
Today’s pic is a work of art. Look at the depth of it, the way Wayne is blown out in the background, the intense look of concentration on Dickinson’s face as she speaks with Howard Hawks in the foreground. Hope you dig and make sure you click the image to embiggen to get the full effect!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic needs to be… corrected.
