I am so. excited. to be bringing you today’s pics. Thanks to my new Facebook pal Juan Ibáñez Mateos, from beautiful Barcelona, Spain, we are presenting some candid photographs of young Timothy that I can pretty much guarantee you have never seen before. They were taken at an unknown venue by an unknown photographer sometime in the mid-1950s. It looks like there is some kind of song-and-dance talent competition going on. The Johnny Otis Band is going to town in the background. And Mr. Timothy Carey is owning the room.
The fellow who gave these pics to Juan was apparently unaware that Tim was even in them. They have a marvelous LIFE magazine quality. In the James Dean article from Movie Stars Parade magazine, Tim tells Dean that he spent a lot of time at the 5-4 Ballroom in Los Angeles. I’m willing to bet that these pics were taken there. And, of course, we’ve all got to wonder – did Tim win the competition? Eternal thanks to the unknown photographer, the friend who passed these on to Juan, and Juan himself. I am just blown away by this unexpected glimpse into the life and times of young Tim. I’ve been walking around with a goofy grin on my face since yesterday. It’s showing no signs of going away anytime soon. I hope you love these pics as much as I do.
Inspired by the awesome folks at the Fans of Timothy Carey group on Facebook, today’s pic takes another look at The Outfit (1973), directed by John Flynn (Rolling Thunder ). I am particularly digging everyone’s color-coordinated outfits here.
PATHS OF GLORY: ANATOMY OF A FILM is a documentary that examines Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 cinematic masterpiece, Paths of Glory. The project was conceived to study the modern art form of cinema with the same level of concentration often given to literature, music, painting and sculpture. The primary objective is to deepen audience understanding and appreciation for the craft and art of filmmaking by combining the subjects of production, technique and aesthetics with historical perspective. The result is a detailed and enjoyable analysis of a film of indisputable quality. It is a work-in-progress, awaiting the inclusion of final production elements and editorial completion.
