Trivia: Here's another case of a highly decorated cinematographer working on a low-budget movie at the end of his career...this time EDWARD CRONJAGER (1904-1960) was behind the camera for these films prior to 1959's THE GIRL IN LOVERS LANE, nominated for an Oscar for each of them: 1931-Cimarron; 1941-Sun Valley Serenade; 1942-The Pied Piper; 1942-To the Shores of Tripoli; 1943-Heaven Can Wait; 1944-Home in Indiana; and 1953-Beneath the 12 Mile Reef.

Born in 1916 and blind in one eye from a childhood fight (or maybe he was running while carrying a scissors), character actor JACK ELAM usually played villains because of his looks in films like: 1950-One Way Street (his first film); 1952-Rancho Notorious; 1955-Artists and Models; 1957-Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (starring Kirk Douglas); 1968-Once Upon a Time in the West; 1969-Support Your Local Sheriff (with James Garner); 1970-Rio Lobo; 1973-Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid; 1976-Creature From Black Lake; 1979-The Sacketts (TV mini-series with Tom Selleck); 1980-Cannonball Run (and its sequel); 1982-Jinxed (with Bette Midler); and 1991-The Giant of Thunder Mountain. Besides his many television guest appearances, he also had roles on six TV series: 1962's The Dakotas; 1963's Temple Houston; 1977's The Texas Wheelers (with Mark Hamill); 1979's Struck by Lightning (as the Frankenstein monster); 1985's Detective in the House; and 1987's Easy Street (with Loni Anderson). In 1993, Elam was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame for his many roles in Westerns.
