Pic of the Day: “Naked Gun” revisited

Today’s pic is another from Naked Gun (1956), the enjoyable B-Western directed by Eddie Dew, former B-Western player himself. Timothy’s mustachioed henchman Hartman is enjoying a drink and a laugh with his bartender pal Wilson (William “Bill” Phillips).

Naked Gun

Phillips did scads of character bit parts in films in the 1940s and ’50s. Strangely enough, he was also the director of the San Diego Museum of Man in the late ’50s. His appearance in Naked Gun was one of his last; he passed away in 1957.
