Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Today we have a really great, gothic photo showing off the huge set of 1931’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde starring Frederic March.
I’m a big fan of BTS shots that show off big sets, especially when it’s Old Hollywood sets like this. In the 80 some years since this one came out stage equipment doesn’t look too much different (the cameras are no longer the size of a Mini Cooper, though), but a few notable filmmakers aside elaborate sets like the one on display here are becoming harder and harder to come by.
Thanks to Titan Books’ Tom Green for sending this one in! Click to enlargen.
That is just one of many awesome photos put out in the edition of the book Hollywood Movie Stills, which focuses on the art of onset still photography. You’ll see a few more images from the book pop up here over the next few weeks, but you can get the book yourself by clicking the below:
