Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1946. Vintage double weight reference photograph of director Tay Garnett discussing a scene with Lana Turner and an intent James Garfield on the set of the 1946 film. Mimeo snipe on verso.
Based on the 1934 novel by James M. Cain. Remade in 1981 in a grim, nihilistic adaptation by David Mamet (his screenwriting debut), directed by Bob Rafelson and starring Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange.
A high spot of film noir, as well as the careers of Turner and Garfield.
Set in Twin Oaks, California, and shot on location in Laguna Beach, Norwalk and Los Angeles, California.
