PHOTO OF THE DAY: HER TWELVE MEN

image

Oh,c’mon. Anyone who has ever sighed ( or cried) at the final scene of RANDOM HARVEST will remember  Greer Garson, with her arms round Ronald Colman, facing the camera and mouthing, “Smithy,Smithy.”
Whoever designed the above poster must have ran out of ideas and said, oh well, why not. No one will notice!

A stylised re-working of the original shot. There is no such frame in HER TWELVE MEN.

RANDON HARVEST Final scene

Greer is wearing a fur hat, but the expression is the same.

As for “…the most unusual picture of her career”.  I also say,c’mon.

I like it but it’s pretty routine . An ordinary day at the office for both Robert Ryan and Barry Sullivan.

  1. I discovered this movie on TCM a few years back. It is so meaningful and sweet – I instantly fell in love with all the sweet little boys. Thank you for sharing this wonderful movie!
