Photo of the Day

Errol Flynn and Gina Lollobrigida in CROSSED SWORDS (1954)

Cinematography by the brilliant Jack Cardiff. Unfortunately the film is only available in a murky, scratched, noisy copy. Flynn, as this photo shows, looks bored and tired. Gina is practically unrecognizable in more ways than one: though she spoke English her familiar voice has been dubbed over by a very common sounding voice actress. Not bad but not remarkable by any means. This is a type of film they'll never make today because even though the costumes are great the male characters all wear tights.
