Heroes / Angu / 1964
“I walked out of class one day and I never went back.”
In no special order:
My First Western Star is
Burton Stephen Lancaster
But he’d definitely be near the top.
As a kid in the 1930s New York, Burt learned to Act
in local theatre productions in also studied Circus Arts –
eventually becoming a Circus Acrobat and Trapeze Artist.
He seemed ‘custom made’ to be a Action Film Star.
But it also helps to have a ton of Charisma/Star Power.
Burt’s first Action Film:
The Flame and the Arrow / 1950
Yes … well … not an auspicious beginning to be sure …
(Burt’s swordfighting skills need a bit of work too.)
But his second Action Film
The Crimson Pirate / 1952
opened the flood gates to Stardom.
Heave Ho and up she rises!
Can you identify this kind of ship for me
that was used in The Crimson Pirate ?
