Ann Sheridan signs a poster of herself during a USO tour.
Always thought Lauren Bacall was unusual casting in this very good film.

Alan Ladd in APPOINTMENT WITH DANGER. (His character’s name is ‘Goddard’). Ladd plays a postal inspector.
He won’t be a deputy for long.
I thought this pic was from 3.10 to Yuma but good friend to the blog ,Walter confirmed it’s a still from “Cowboy.“
The entire cast of THE NAKED SPUR.

I really like Appointment With Danger with the unusual teaming of Alan Ladd and Phyllis Calvert! They work well together and Jan Sterling was a good contrast to Phyllis, as a gangsters moll. Phyllis thought highly of Alan and she and her husband socialized with the Ladd’s when Alan was filming in Britain.
Any idea what took Phyllis to America? Did she stay long, make any other films?
Appointment With Danger was the last of Phyllis’s three Hollywood films. J.Arthur Rank operated a lend lease system enabling British stars to go to the US. Phyllis had greatly admired Robert Siodmaks The Killers and was thrilled when she was told he would be directing her in Time Out Of Mind, from a best seller by Rachel Field. Unfortunately Siodmak hated the script and bowed out. Phyllis refused to work with another director and he reluctantly returned. The film was a disaster and an angry Universal planted negative stories about her in the press. Her other film was My Own True Love, a story of post war adjustment with Melvyn Douglas. She tested unsuccessfully for the role that Angela Lansbury played in Samson And Delilah and the Bing Crosby musical Riding High.
Thanks for all that interesting information – two films I don’t know at all.
Time Out Of Mind I on you tube but it’s very sluggish. Robert Hutton as a drunken composer must be one the 40s weakest leading men. Surprising to see Ella Raine’s playing second fiddle to Phyllis
Vienna, another good PHOTO MIX. I could look at pictures like these all day. I like the one of Walter Brennan, also, the side view of Lauren Bacall and Kenneth Moore. Aw, I like all of them.
APPOINTMENT WITH DANGER(filmed in 1949, released 1950) is, I think, a good movie. I first watched it on the WHBQ-TV Channel 13, Memphis, Tennessee DIALING FOR DOLLARS MOVIE during the 1970’s. I thought seeing Jack Webb and Harry Morgan as two thugs was quite different, especially being accustomed to seeing them as policemen on DRAGNET(1967-70).
If my memory serves me right, the above picture of Glenn Ford is from COWBOY(filmed in 1957, released 1958). In 3:10 TO YUMA(1957) Ford wore is usual weather-beaten open rode Stetson. That hat, like James Stewart’s hat, had character.
Thanks, Walter and you are probably right, that photo of Glenn is from COWBOY. My mistake. I’ll amend .
Interesting to think of Webb and Morgan playing bad guys. As you say, everyone would think of Dragnet.
