Blind Items Revealed #2 - Old Hollywood

May 4, 2018

This permanent A list mostly movie actor who was a multiple Oscar nominee/winner also had his own production company back in the day. That in of itself was kind of unusual during the studio system. The actor made a movie about the gossip industry. A movie that you should watch if you haven't. Anyway, there was a messed up relationship on screen and the actor told the actress involved in that relationship on screen that they needed to consummate their relationship to make it even more real. The actress refused so the married actor raped her and told her the look on her face after is what he wanted for the entire movie. She barely worked again after the movie and was out of acting within a couple years.

Burt Lancaster/Hecht-Hill-Lancaster Productions/Sweet Smell Of Success

Who was the actress or did we cover that already in another post.

David Howes said...

I don't know why, but I always had the feeling that Burt Lancaster was gay -- not that there is anything wrong with that!

It looks like the actress may be Susan Harrison.

Susan Harrison (18-19 when filming) played the much younger sister of Burt's character who was possessive and ploted to break up her engagement.
SH acted a few more years...

Damn, I was hoping this wouldn't be it, because I love that movie so much. I've been quoting it for years: my left hand hasn't seen my right hand in over thirty years...

He also said Blacks shouldn't be allowed in the Actors Union, so there's that. Was definitely a POS.

PotPourri said...

Darver Conger's father was almost Burt Lancaster? ok.

Hortensia said...

Burt supposedly had a male lover that he visited frequently when the lover was in a nursing home.

Sorry to hear that about Burt. I used to dream about him, and he'd give me advice.

Persiaa said...

Lancaster, too? Damn, was any Old Hollywood male star not a rapist? Please tell me that William Powell was a gentleman.
