This photo was taken on the Ghostbusters movie set, back in 1984. The life-sized Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was built by Bill Bryan using miniatures and optical compositing. The suit had two layers—the inner layer was fireproof and the outer layer was flammable. “Ghostbusters” was the first installment in the original series.
The science fiction comedy follows three eccentric New York City parapsychologists who started their own business investigating and catching ghosts after being terminated from Columbia University. Dubbed one of the most successful comedy movies back in the 80s, the film featured Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson. With a US$30 million budget, it grossed around US$240 million throughout the US and over US$50 million in the international market.
Paul Newman on the Set of "The Young Philadelphians"
This photo of Paul Newman was taken sometime in 1959 during his shooting of the drama film, "The Young Philadelphians." The award-winning actor also worked as a director, producer, and racecar driver. He won an Oscar for his thrilling performance in "The Color of Money," a BAFTA award, and an Emmy award, among many others.
Newman also starred in "The Hustler," "Harper," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," and "The Verdict." If you’re a big fan of Disney-Pixar's "Cars," Newman was the voice behind Doc Hudson in the first installment of the film. He died of lung cancer when he was 83 years old.
Paul Newman, Katherine Ross, and Robert Redford
Here’s a classic shot of one of the greatest films ever made in the history of Hollywood. Taken on the set of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," back in 1969, Paul Newman, Katherine Ross, and Robert Redford posed with poker faces.
The American Western movie was helmed by George Roy Hill and is based on the story of Wild West outlaws, Robert LeRoy Parker and his partner Harry Longabaugh. Aside from reaching its box-office mark of over $100 million (astounding considering it was made in the 60s), the film was chosen for the US National Film Registry for its historical significance. Moreover, it received an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
Brigitte Bardot On A Smoke Break
Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot is one of the most famous sex symbols of the 1950s. The French actress and artist is also an animal rights activist. Truly a fashion icon, Bardot’s hairstyle, makeup, and fashion sense continue to inspire a lot of women across the globe. In her younger years, she dreamt of becoming a ballerina. She earned international acting recognition in 1957 for her provocative role in the controversial drama, "And God Created Woman."
Brigitte Bardot retired from acting in 1973 with 47 films and 60 songs under her belt. Bardot had numerous relationships with prominent men including French director Robert Vadim, musician Gilbert Becaud, and German millionaire playboy Gunter Sachs.
Siblings, Shirley MacLaine And Warren Beatty
If you’re a fan of Warren Beatty, you must know for a fact that he has a biological sister; and that said sister is none other than Shirley MacLaine. MacLaine started her acting career ahead of Beatty and he didn’t want to gain popularity as Shirley’s brother.
When asked why Beatty was so interested in filmmaking over acting, MacLaine said “That's why he's more comfortable behind the camera, he's in the total-control aspect. He has to have control over everything.” Beatty won an Academy Award for Best Director for "Reds" and earned nominations for Best Actor, Best Picture, and Best Screenplay. Wow, such a talented guy here!
