Crop And Save
Prince of Arcadia (1933)
The 19 Year Old Ida Lupino
Ida Lupino made her screen debut in this film having not pursued her education beyond school. She did not show any promise at this early stage in her career and looked very much like a poor woman's version of Bette Davis: bland and horizontal.
Yul Brynner and Roald Dahl
The 34 year old Roald Dahl was enlisted to bring to the screen his short story, 'A Dip in the Pool', in this series which was directed by Yul Brynner before he shot to fame as an actor in 'The King and I'. The short story has a natural home in the episodic serial like this.
Mother Machree (1928)
The 21 Year Old John Wayne
This film was originally credited as John Wayne's debut film, but obviously he appeared in films two years before this as an uncredited extra. He showed early promise in these silent films with his height, his smile, and just the way how he embodied the American west.
Girls Demand Excitement (1931)
The 24 Year Old John Wayne
I think most of these early films that Wayne appeared in was akin to work experience in order to penetrate a profession. Although there may not be any real story in this film, there's a lot that you can learn about how to be a gentleman and treat women just by watching JW.
The 22 Year Old John Wayne
There was definitely something to be said about the young John Wayne. Whatever you may think about 19th century American history, he embodies the recreation (and reinvention) of the American west on screen. No matter how far removed the myth is from reality, he made entertaining viewing in almost all of his films.
Art Trouble (1934)
James Stewart's Screen Debut
The 26 year old James Stewart made his uncredited screen debut in this film having previously graduated from university and exploited the stage circuit. He was obviously an intelligent man with a distinctively American voice which kind of carved him out as an all-American hero.
Tomorrow's Drivers (1954)
The 46 Year Old James Stewart
There's something about James Stewart's voice that's unmistakable. It's a small town American voice, and reflects small town American values. He is the chosen representative of the all-American sympathizers, and because he's interesting to watch and listen, he's endeared himself to a universal audience.
Appointment with a Shadow (1957)
'Vertigo' and 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'
Having achieved success in writing the episode, 'Together', in the 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' series on the 12th January 1958, and then contributing to the 'Vertigo' script, Alec Coppel continued to sustain himself in this film which only had research value rather than entertainment.
The 45 Year Old Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl never ceases to surprise me. Not only does he write short stories and adapt them for installments in 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents', he also wrote the screenplay for 'You Only Live Twice'. What a talented bloke. Obviously, all the energy that he applied to 'Man from the South' in Colliers magazine back in 1948 was brought to this television screenplay.
The 38 Year Old Stirling Silliphant
Like Evan Hunter, Stirling Silliphant ploughed his trade by writing novels, having them adapted for the screen, and writing episodes of 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'. His first adaptation was at the age of 37, so he spent a few years living life before he achieved success.
