Here's another publicity pose for Mighty Joe Young (this was nothing like this in the movie itself). Interesting angle!

Book news!

Texas author and journalist Kathryn Jones is working on a biography of Ben Johnson, to be published as part of the University of Mississippi Press' "Hollywood Legends" series. Kathryn asks anyone who knew Ben and has anecdotes and memories to share to send her a private message via her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kathryn.jones. ... Vg&fref=nf

Toby Roan (who writes the great blog 50 Westerns from the '50s) is hard at work on his upcoming book A Million Feet of Film: The Making of One-Eyed Jacks, a production history of the film. I guess things are coming along -- he's unveiled cover art. The design is by Tomas Gardner, based on original pressbook art by Julius Kroll.
