Another small part in the 1953 film, All I Desire. The movie is set at the turn of the century. Long divorced from her husband Henry Murdoch (Richard Carlson), itinerant actress Naomi Murdoch (Barbara Stanwyck) returns to her hometown to watch her daughter perform in a high school play. Naomi decides to turn over a new leaf and devote herself to the daughter she's never known. This she finds next to impossible, thanks to ugly small-town gossip attending her return.|
Also starring Lyle Bettger, Lori Nelson, Maureen O'Sullivan and Richard Long, who would star years later as Barbara Stanwyck's son Jarrod on the tv series, Big Valley.
|In Seven Angry Men, Raymond Massey stars as controversial 19th-century abolitionist John Brown, a role he’d previously essayed in 1940’s Santa Fe Trail. Without glossing over Brown’s murderous fanaticism and cold-bloodedness, the film manages to invoke a degree of sympathy for the man, whose intentions were honorable even if his methods were not. After cutting a bloody swath through Kansas, Brown, his sons and followers hole up in a warehouse at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia, where he meets his own personal Waterloo at the hands of federal troops. The romantic subplot is handled by Jeffrey Hunter, cast as Brown’s son Owen, and Debra Paget as Owen’s sweetheart Elizabeth. James Edwards offers another strong characterization as an articulate freed slave who follows John Brown to his doom. Guy plays Salmon in this 1955 film.|
|Another small role in 1955 as Lieutenant Benton in The Last Frontier. The film stars Victor Mature as a fur trapper who tries to stop "The Butcher" from sending his troops on a suicide raid against hostile Indians. In March 1955, cast and crew traveled to Mexico where the slopes of Mexico's Mt. Popocatepetl substituted for the 1860's American frontier. Completed in May as The Last Frontier, the film opened in December 1955 using Savage Wilderness as its title. This film also stars Guy Madison, Robert Preston, Anne Bancroft and James Whitmore.|
|In 1956, at the height of his TV fame, flamboyant pianist Liberacé starred in this lavish Warner Brothers production, Sincerely Yours. The film casts "Mr. Showmanship" as famed concert pianist Anthony Warrin, who at the height of his popularity, is stricken with deafness. While medical science works on a cure, he must find other ventures. He learns to lip read and, using high-powered binoculars, eavesdrops on people's conversations in Central Park. When he finds people in need, he intercedes with help. Meanwhile, his fiancée is falling in love with another man, his secretary quits, and his doctors give him new hope. Guy plays Dick Cosgrove. Other stars include William Demarest, Joanne Dru, Dorothy Malone and Lori Nelson.|
|Guy played a police officer in the 1957 cult film I Was A Teenage Werewolf starring Michael Landon and Yvonne Lime. An interesting mixture of juvenile delinquency and horror monster. It was only a few years later that Michael and Guy would be working together on Bonanza.|
|The above photo was taken on the set of I Was A Teenage Werewolf. The photo does have Guy in it. That's Michael Landon in full make up. Kenny Miller, who played the bongo-playing Vic in the movie, autographed this photo for me.|
