    "A ditty written by Bing Crosby and Arthur Freed to the tune of "The Bowery" about director Raoul Walsh and the filming of Going Hollywood (1933). MGM management didn't particularly appreciate it."



    "In this exclusive outtake from Bing Crosby Rediscovered, hear never-before-released audio of Bing Crosby singing the lyrics he penned to roast Hollywood director Raoul Walsh. The filming of "Going Hollywood," starring Crosby and Marian Davies, had its obstacles. When Bing poked fun at the director and film, Louis Mayer at MGM Studios banned Walsh and Bing from future MGM productions."

    I just found out that Colorado Territory (1949) is a remake of High Sierra (1941), of sorts.

    "Historically speaking, High Sierra is more important for its crystallization of the Humphrey Bogart persona: mulish, bitter, doomed. His good-bad guy Roy Earle was originally slated to be played by both Paul Muni and George Raft, until their queasiness with the script paved Bogart’s way to stardom. And so, it receives a fine DVD transfer and continuous play on TV and at repertory theaters. Colorado Territory has no such claim to history, except as a superior piece of genre filmmaking, so it receives a beat-up, fuzzy transfer in the Warner Archive. So it goes."

    I Died a Thousand Times is a 1955 American CinemaScope Warnercolor film noir crime film directed by Stuart Heisler.

    The drama features Jack Palance as paroled bank robber Roy Earle, with Shelley Winters, Lee Marvin, Earl Holliman, Perry Lopez, Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez, and Lon Chaney, Jr.[1]

    I Died a Thousand Times is a scene-by-scene remake of High Sierra (1941), which was based upon a novel by W.R. Burnett and starred Humphrey Bogart as Earle. The same story had also been transformed into a Western, Colorado Territory (1949), with Joel McCrea.

    I especially enjoy seeing photos of the actual filming of all these old movies. So much more complicated than one could imagine.

    Filming of a scene from The Bowery (spoiler?)

    Jackie Cooper is sitting in the box above the wagon wheels. He is the only one looking at the camera. Raoul Walsh is sitting directly behind him and missed it. :oops:

    Those big square white things are called "bounce boards." They bounce sunlight at places the sun can't reach naturally. "Chasing the sun" is a term that refers to the constant adjustments to the grip equipment needed to compensate for the sun’s movement. Reflectors, diffusion and overheads all need to be moved, which takes time and manpower.

    Brother George has a small part as John L. Sullivan. He looks :cool: with a moustache.
