Elaine Stewart had some interesting credits including three films
that are way overdue for a DVD release.
“The Tattered Dress” A little seen but highly regarded thriller from
“The Rise & Fall Of Legs Diamond” What is this doing on the missing
“Most Dangerous Man Alive” Allan Dwans final film and a rare foray
(for him) into sci-fi.
Elaine Stewart was also excellent in the Victor Mature Western
“Escort West” produced by John Waynes production company.
This one is available on DVD.
Your comment pointed out what fabulous directors she worked with: Arnold, Boetticher and Dwan. Wow. Then there’s Minnelli and Richard Brooks.
When I thinned out my laserdisc collection, I’m so glad I hung onto Legs Diamond. That seems like a perfect candidate for Warner Archive.
I wonder if there is a rights issue over Legs Diamond;I am sure it
would have surfaced by now from the Archive.
How about a “special edition” with the addition of the Boetticher
directed “Maverick” episodes.
