Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Fred Astaire, John Houseman, and Melvyn Douglas
Talk about an ICONIC photo! These four men aren’t just legends, they’re four of the greatest actors of our (or any) time. This is from the wonderful 1981 film Ghost Story. It would mark the last theatrical feature film for Melvyn Douglas, Fred Astaire, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.. I am, and forever will be, amazed and thankful that these men were teamed for a film.
Melvyn Douglas and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. are two of the stars I “collect” – as in all of their films, articles, etc… but this particular film, oddly enough, is proving to be difficult for me to find! I’m accustomed (as an avid collector of my favorites) to struggling to find some older films, but this one is from 1981, it should be easy peasy.
IF you can ever get your hands on it, or find it on TV (also often difficult), be sure to watch it. It’s a darn good movie, wonderful plot… and the cast?? CAN’T BE BEAT!
