The 26 Year Old Robert Mitchum
3 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is one of many that Mitchum was offered to pad out his career. As an actor, he needed to have work experience behind him in order to be hired. Therefore, his agent sent him for every role being offered, paying Mitchum between $75 per day and $100 per week. I think we can safely call this film padding.
