HOLLYWOOD'S GOLDEN AGE
(Post 30 of 50)
And the Elisha Cook Jr. supporting player award goes to..Leo G. Carroll. A Hitchcock regular, Leo always seemed to pop up as an urbane professional in such films such as Rebecca, North by Northwest and as the head psychiatrist in Spellbound. An exception to this type of casting I saw recently was Carroll as the houseboy Joseph in Wuthering Heights.
Carroll later went on to play Cosmo Topper in the television series Topper and was the head of the spy agency in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. He also served as a verse in the song Science Fiction Double Feature from The Rocky Horror Picture Show...I know Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel when Tarantula took to the hills...
I know that if they used my dreams for analysis in Spellbound tehy would put me in a straightjacket and take the movie in an absurd, but also very interesting direction.ReplyDelete
My favorite scene is actually Carroll's scene above when he turns the gun on himself and we see it through his point of view.ReplyDelete
