Trivia: This DRIVE-IN DIRT author is forever confusing actor RICHARD CARLSON (1912-1977) with the amazing look-alike actor Hugh Marlowe (see L01-WORLD WITHOUT END). Were they related? Separated at birth? Carlson's flicks include: 1938-The Young in Heart; 1940-The Ghost Breakers; 1941-The Little Foxes (with Bette Davis); 1953-The Magnetic Monster; 1953-It Came From Outer Space; 1954-Riders to the Stars (also directed); 1954-Creature from the Black Lagoon; and 1968-The Power.

Hungarian ERNEST LASZLO (1905-1984) was one of Hollywood's most decorated cinematographers, having received eight Academy Award nominations for: 1960's Inherit the Wind (starring Spencer Tracy); 1960's Judgment at Nuremberg (again with Tracy); 1963's It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (again with Tracy); 1966's Fantastic Voyage (with Stephen Boyd and Raquel Welch); 1968's Star!; 1969's Airport; 1976's Logan's Run (with Michael York); and winning the Oscar for 1965's Ship of Fools (starring Vivien Leigh). Note that he did TORMENTED and 906-THE SPACE CHILDREN (1958) before all these films. Other films in which Laszlo used his camera skills are: 1944-Two Years Before the Mast; 1947-Road to Rio (with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby); 1952-The Star (with Bette Davis); 1953-Stalag 17 (with William Holden and Peter Graves); and 1966-Star! (with Julie Andrews).
