Photo of the Day

Nick Cravat and Burt Lancaster are ready for action in THE CRIMSON PIRATE

Amazingly sharp photo. Critics compared Lancaster to Fairbanks' swashbuckling antics with this action packed film. I wouldn't go as far as that as Fairbanks had the timeless Matinee Idol look Lancaster didn't have. They don't make films like this anymore.

That's a really FUN movie.

As a former circus acrobat, Burt could swash-a-buckle with the best of them.

Small, but wiry Nick Cravat was Burt's circus partner & loyal Burt used him in films, whenever he could.
