Nobody is more excited by color snaps of actors working on legendary black-and-white films than myself. Unfortunately there are very few of them. I’ve posted choice color shots from Some Like It Hot and Dr. Strangelove. In early ’15 I found some cruddy-looking shots from the set of On The Waterfront, taken from the documentary Listen To Me, Marlon.
This morning Larry Karaszewski posted a few color images from the set of Peter Bogdanovich‘s Paper Moon (’73), which was shot in Kansas during the summer of ’72. The images came from Stephen Rebello, Larry reports. The only really good one is a magic-hour closeup of Tatum O’Neal.
Ryan O’Neal‘s precocious daughter was eight during filming; she’s currently two and 1/3 years away from the big six-oh.
In the matter of parent-child films Hollywood tends to cast actors who either (a) vaguely resemble each other at best, or (b) don’t resemble each other at all. In this respect Paper Moon was quite the rarity.
