Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1962. Vintage studio still photograph taken on the set of the 1962 film noir, showing actress Lori Martin holding Robert Mitchum's son James on her lap, while Mitchum looks on in the background, with director J. Lee Martin to the left. Annotations in holograph pencil on the verso, identifying subjects.
Based on John D. Macdonald's 1957 novel "The Executioners." One of the last great films from the classic American noir cycle, with Mitchum starring as an unrepentant thug, and Gregory Peck playing essentially against type as a protagonist who has to abandon his civility in order to protect his family.
