Set photos from Sunday in New York (1963) and Made in Paris (1966)

May 22, 2020

A couple weeks ago I purchased two photos from the set of Sunday in New York on ebay. Thanks to the expertise of my friend & Rod Taylor historian Diane, who runs The Complete Rod Taylor Site, I'm able to share that the cast was celebrating Rod Taylor's marriage in the photo above! He's holding a giant card signed by the cast and crew with a caricature of Rod and wedding bells. Diane also shared with me that the man next to Rod is his friend and stand-in Marco Lopez! In the photo below, you can see Robert Culp and Jane Fonda on the couch, with Rod Taylor's back to the camera.

But our story doesn't end here! After I purchased these Sunday in New York photos, the ebay seller reached out to me to ask if I could help identify actors in some photos that he had in his collection. He e-mailed me four small photos, one of which was a contact sheet. Squinting at my screen I exclaimed, "It can't be!" The contact sheet appeared to contain 12 photos from the set of Made in Paris (1966) starring Chad Everett. What serendipity!! I consulted my fellow Chad Everett enthusiast on twitter, Jackie, to see if she agreed with my assessment and together we pieced together some clues. I have an 8x10 still of Chad Everett in the same outfit, leaning against a Pan Am airplane in a promotional photo for Made in Paris. Jackie realized that the photo number on my still was part of the same sequence used on the contact sheet. I was sold!

I finally opened up the package today and was able to see for the first time, up close, that we were indeed correct! Here are 12 photos from what appears to be a deleted scene from Made in Paris, with Richard Crenna!

As always, you can click on all of these photos to see them larger :)

Original transparencies from Sunday in New York (1963)

May 07, 2020

I recently acquired two original transparencies from Sunday in New York (1963) and I'm so excited to share them with you! I photographed them on my lightbox and then imported them into Photoshop to adjust the tones and clean up a few dust and scratch marks. I think my favorite thing about these photos is how you can see the tape on the floor for Robert Culp's mark in the first photo!
