Noticed Randy hadn’t ridden through this blog in a while, so here’s Phyllis Kirk on Thunder Over The Plains (1953) and its director Andre de Toth.
Phyllis Kirk: “Now, Andre de Toth was just a remarkable guy… I admired him and liked him very much. He was really a remarkable director, and a director who was much more appreciated in Europe than he was here. In France and in England, and maybe even in Italy, he was considered a very imaginative, fine talent… He was a director — and man — who knew what he wanted, and saw to it that he got it. I adored him, he was a wonderful guy and I like him very much.”
Phyllis Kirk: “The picture was the usual not-very-complicated Western. Andre lifted it a little bit above the normal. It wasn’t a great film. In fact, if I hadn’t been under contract, I wouldn’t have done it!”
