Scenes from SUDAN (1945)

With the recent release of SUDAN on Blu-ray, watching the movie again reminded me of how many matte paintings there are in it. It's replete with these wonderful scenes. Even incidental scenes have them. At IMDb, no one is credited for them. But according to another website, the matte painting supervisor was Russell Lawson and John DeCuir was also an artist. Both Lawson and DeCuir are not credited at IMDb.

John DeCuir went on to become a production designer on a lot of major films such as Cleopatra and The Big Fisherman.

Years ago they didn't have long credits of movies like today. Watch a movie on TCM and see the short credits!
