Here’s a still from Raoul Walsh’s The Sheriff Of Fractured Jaw (1958), starring Kenneth More and Jayne Mansfield. It’s one I haven’t seen — and really want to.
Fractured Jaw came to mind after watching More in the true classic A Night To Remember (also 1958). Tucker McGuire is also in both films. A Night To Remember is a picture that really holds up — and doesn’t lose its impact — no matter how many times you’ve seen it.
What’s more, with its attention to detail and commitment to authenticity, it’s a fitting tribute to the 1,500 souls lost on the Titanic 100 years ago tonight. Watching it this evening was a powerful experience.
