Containing Multitudes Since 2004
*snort* There goes my coffee all over my computer. Unknown, non-interfering, indeed! =)
Is the guy standing on the right William Cameron Menzies (the real genius behind GWTW)?
Yeah, what you want is a producer who isn't going to pester you to death with memos.
Isn't that George Cukor, kindly director and runner-up in several David O Selznick look-alike contests?
I believe that's the kindly, soon-to-be-replaced director peering over the camera. Although, since the movie is so obscure, I could be wrong.
The cast of characters, which is with the photo that I of course didn't bother to check since I just knew that was Selznick (slaps forehead), are - L to R 1. Clark Gable2. Eric Stacey, Assistant Director3. Walter Plunket, Costumes4. ??? unknown5. George Culkor, Director6. Lee Garmes, Camera7. ??? unknown 8. ??? unknown9. James Potevin, Chief Electrician10.??? unknown11. Vivien Leigh, center
Easy mistake to make. Selznick and Cukor bore a striking resemblance to one another in those days . . . besides, Selznick was ultimately on the set of that little Civil War picture many more days than George Cukor ever was.This has to be very early in the production, since I believe Lee Garmes was fired before Cukor.
This has to be early in the production. Everyone looks way too happy, even for a publicity still.
Mr. Gable certainly has their attention. Every single one of them is focused on him. Probably Clark, too.Not only that but their thoughts are written all over their faces. I see worship, enchantment, envy, anger, fear, disdain, contempt, and (of course) self-satisfied.
