Showdown at Prairie Butte

Almost two dozen desperate gunslingers were arrayed on the outskirts of town, armed with sixguns, rifles, scatterguns and a bloodthirsty desire to kill!

I found some amazingly crisp movie images here:



PS. By the way, photos exactly like these keep tempting me to paint all my "old movie theme" minis in B&W and all manner of GRAYS (yep, nuthin but grayscale). One day I might build up the nerve to actually do it.

Wow, great find, Dan!

So Dan, what you are saying is that you long to game in 50 shades of Gray? grin

All kidding aside, that would be a really interesting project. It would be a harder challenge to paint than painting in full color because the tonality would be gray with very few pure whites or blacks. I think you would have to be a really, really good painter to pull it off.

I started a topic on "Indiana Jones and Rick O'Connell"

And I haven't even began to make list of the main evil mummies yet…

But Boris Karloff looks great in black and white…perhaps only a small red light hidden behind the chest…but not enough to take away from the grey…to give it a sin city look…

Those are all excellent – almost look like HD quality.

Of course, those shots are for lobby cards, publicity, etc, and are NOT screen captures or cells from the film itself.

High quality Hollywood photography at its best prior to the 1960's or so is generally better than anything done today. It wasn't "news" photography, it was top professional work done under perfect conditions of lighting, setting, etc.

These are great, I could wish there were more to see?

Any hope of that, CC?

That is a great find. Too bad none of us will ever see the movies the way the original audiences did,unless we make it to one of the Silver Nitrate festivals. It's reported to be a revelatory experience.

Someone back in the 70's did a gray scale light box diorama of Rick's Cafe, I believe in 54mm. I can't find it on line. Anybody here see it? I think it was in one of the MFCA shows. I'd like to see a pic.

TVAG,check Dan's link. There's lots,including posters:


The only other Karloff movie is "Bride", and Lugosi is limited to "Dracula". So nothing (so far),from "The Black Cat", my second favorite Universal,after Mummy.


Doesn't seem to be a listing by genre,though. That would be helpful. You could search through Horror,or Film Noir, for instance. Everything seems to be by actor name.

Still, I think I'm going to be spending a bit of time on this site.

Thanks for pointing out the link! I thought it led elsewhere…

And thanks for Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake!

Gawd, they just don't make 'em like her anymore….

If you go to Movie Summaries you can find things by movie instead of actor.

Hey,thanks, Boy Wundyr! I thought it was just "movie summaries",so I didn't click on that. Shows what happens when you assume. . .

Ooh--Cat People!


I can see I'll be spending even more time there.

Gawd,they just don't make'em like her anymore

You got that right:
