Howdy Manco!!

Nicholas Ray was a big time director in Hollywood from 1949-1963. He directed such films as, Knock On Any Door, They Live By Night, The Flying Leathernecks, Johnny Guitar and 2 of his most famous, Rebel Without a Cause with James Dean and King Of Kings with Jeffrey Hunter. Like Sam Peckinpah, Ray was a hard drinker and drug user. When he collapsed on the set of 55 Days To Peking, his career was virtually over as far as Hollywood was concerned. After a 10 year hiatus, Ray attempted a comeback, but was never able to live up to his former work.

Verna Bloom began her career in film in 1967. In 1971 she was chosen to play Peter Fonda's wife in the western, The Hired Hand. She next appeared as the hotel owner's wife in High Plains Drifter and as Dean Wormer's wife in, Animal House. Although she continued acting through 2003, her last big role was in The Last Temptation Of Christ

Anjanette Comer first appeared on the hit t.v. series, My Three Sons, back in 1962. She continued to appear in many of the t.v. series popular at the time, like The Blue Knight, Gunsmoke, until 1966, when she was cast opposite Marlon Brando in The Appaloosa. Her next big role, was as the Mexican peasant girl in Guns For San Sabastian with Anthony Quinn. She has appeared in over 55 productions and is still active in film.
