The Strange One [End as a Man]

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1957. Vintage photograph of Carroll Baker, Jack Garfein, Paul Richards, and Ben Gazzara on the set of the 1957 film. With mimeo snipe, holograph annotations in pencil, and a press agency stamp on the verso.

Based on the 1947 novel and stage play by Calder Willingham, "End As a Man," and with much of the same cast as the stage production. Set at a southern military college, Jocko de Paris (Ben Gazzara) is a sadistic cadet leader, well known to be violent and power-hungry. In a particularly malicious act of hazing he sets up the expulsion of the son of the school's headmaster and subsequently manipulates his social circle into silence until they can no longer take it.

Shot on location in Florida.

10 x 8 inches (25 x 20 cm). Near Fine.
