Pic of the Day: “Bayou” revisited

Today’s pic is another from Bayou (1957), directed by Harold Daniels and filmed on location in the swamps of Louisiana. Ulysses is preparing to do battle with Martin (Peter Graves) for the hand of Marie (Lita Milan), who doesn’t want him but that makes no never-mind to Ulysses. “I can have any girl in the bayou I want, and I want her,” he declares. “And what I want, I take! And no dirty Yankee from swell country is gonna stop me!”

Tim looks like a matinee idol from the 1920s in this shot. My goodness, I think I’m getting the vapors… *fans self* The short bearded fellow behind him is the great Jonathan Haze, one of Roger Corman‘s favorite featured players and the star of The Little Shop of Horrors (1960). “FEED ME, SEYMOUR!”
