Pic of the Day: “Crime Wave” key set photo

Today’s pic is one of two key set photos from Andre De Toth‘s Crime Wave (1954) that I recently scored on eBay. Key set photos were often used by script supervisors to help with shot continuity; they were put into a binder for easy reference. Both of the photos feature Timothy menacing Phyllis Kirk. This is by far the creepiest one.

I will probably be posting sporadically for the next week. We are leaving later this morning for another trip to California, where Romeo Carey and I will hopefully be conducting some interviews. Exciting stuff! Watch this space!
