    29 year old Frank Overton in the McGraw-Hill sex education film Human Reproduction (1947).

    Overton would later establish himself as a quietly authoritative character actor.

    Doug McClure does a cameo on McCloud. Notice how Dennis Weaver's hat makes him look taller and helps him dominate the scene visually (despite Doug's scene-stealing shirt), even though he and McClure were probably around the same height.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned earlier in the thread, but this is
    the most remarkable site for behind the scenes film shots regarding
    matte paintings, etc throughout the history of film. You WILL end up
    spending hours there......

    When I first saw this pic for a half-second I thought it was Martin Scorcese at the piano. Then I looked at the people standing around him and I was like WTF...

    I always enjoy the behind the scenes photo of the old Japanese Godzilla movies....

    I wonder if Godzilla was injured during filming or got drunk?

    Jamie Farr and William Christopher as hippies in With Six You Get Eggroll

    (credit to bekayne)

    With Six You Get Eggroll has another curious sitcom connection. It marked the only feature film appearance of the prolific Allan Melvin, Corporal Henshaw on Sgt Bilko; Sergeant Hacker on Gomer Pyle, USMC; Alice’s boyfriend Sam the Butcher on The Brady Bunch; Barney Hefner on All in the Family; and guest star on virtually every other sitcom ever made.

    Right after I graduated and moved, they filmed Jumanji with Robin Williams in Keene, NH. You can see my apartment building in this scene, the red brick building between the two church steeples.
