George Sanders, Maureen O’Hara, and Tyrone Power in The Black Swan
The Black Swan (19420 was directed by Henry King and starred Tyrone Power, Maureen O’Hara, George Sanders, Thomas Mitchell, Laird Cregar, Anthony Quinn, and George Zucco.
What a cast!
- Thomas Mitchell, Stagecoach (1939)
- George Sanders, All About Eve (1950)
- Anthony Quinn, Viva Zapata! (1952) AND Lust for Life (1956)
In addition to these three well-deserved acknowledgments of greatness, I could personally list multiple films where the other cast members were deserving of nominations and wins. Suffice to say the cast was an embarrassment of riches!
The Black Swan Movie Poster
To help the WWII war effort, the actors tried hard to keep the number of takes as low as possible, to conserve film. Roughly 30 of the scenes were done in one take. That is pretty mind-boggling when you think about it -even with such an outstanding cast.
The Queen of Technicolor Looking as Beautiful as Ever
If you’ve never seen this wonderfully colorful and fun film, I hope you’ll check it out soon. Great distraction from the world around us which seems to have jumped the shark.
