BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK Movie Coloring Contest, 1955
A newspaper Movie Coloring Contest from February 1955. The movie "Bad Day At Black Rock" was directed by John Sturges and starred Spencer Tracy, Robert Ryan, Anne Francis, Dean Jagger, Walter Brennan, John Ericson, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin. From Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide, "Powerhouse cast in yarn of one-armed man (Tracy) uncovering skeleton in Western town's closet. Borgnine memorable as slimy heavy. Millard Kaufman expertly adapted Howard Breslin's story 'Bad Time At Hondo.' Excellent use of Cinemascope." I have never seen this movie but it sure does have a great cast of actors. Anne Francis is another one of my mom's favorite actresses.
