Pic of the Day: “Alaska Seas” revisited

I apologize for not posting last week! Not sure what happened. Guess I needed a little break. In any case, March is coming in like a lion with another look at Alaska Seas (1954), the maritime adventure directed by Jerry Hopper. Boat repairman Wycoff ponders how to get the $920.60 owed him by rogue fisherman Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan).

I was inspired to make Seas our Pic of the Day after coming across this epically hilarious promotional still from the film on eBay. One is inclined to wonder why Timothy was not included in this fabulous shot of Brian Keith, Jan Sterling and Ryan hamming it up for the camera.

Pic of the Day: “Alaska Seas” revisited

Today’s pic revisits Jerry Hopper‘s maritime adventure Alaska Seas (1954). Marine repairman Wycoff is in pursuit of rascally rogue Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan), who owes him a pile of money ($920.60, to be exact). Nicky Jackson (Jan Sterling), girlfriend of fisherman Jim Kimmerly (Brian Keith), has just advised him as to Kelly’s whereabouts.

This nifty little film is available on Netflix Streaming, as well as on non-commercial DVD at Loving the Classics, so check it out!

I also wanted to let you all know that the blog will be going on hiatus for the rest of the week. We’ll be back on September 30, my wedding anniversary and the anniversary of the death of James Dean. So stay tuned!
