When it came out the studio didn't sell it. But the critics grabbed onto it. Neither Randy or I had ever gotten such criticism. We were surprised, though we knew it wasn't a regular shoot-'em-up. I really enjoyed Ride the High Country
(1962). Both Randy and I were washed-up actors playing washed-up lawmen.
A big sight gag in Sullivan's Travels
(1941) was the juxtaposition of the big McCrea with his leading lady, Veronica Lake
, who apparently was 16 inches shorter. For some shots of the film, however, Lake had to stand on a box so their heads could be seen in the same shot.
