Pic of the Day: “Bayou” revisited

Our pic today takes another look at Ulysses, the “confused teenage gorilla” of Bayou (1957), directed by Harold Daniels on location in LaFitte, Louisiana. Here we see him giving his all during a kayak race with his hated rival, Martin Davis (Peter Graves).


Watching Timothy having a crazy good time in a little tiny boat is wonderful, but watching the fellows in the background is even more fun. They are clearly enjoying the spectacle of this nutty guy from Hollywood going off the rails.
