Ring of Everythingness
This 1961 publicity still of David Janssen and Joyce Taylor from the forest fire thriller Ring of Fire works on so many levels. I mean, there's the whole "starlets with No Pants" thing and the "Gun Love" subcategory business, the "Behind Ya" and "Uniformity" stuff, the WTF telephone pole pretending to be a tree and the sky backdrop to the studio floor, and the David Janssen-Fugitive tie-in. If she was smoking a cigarette and talking on the telephone, that would ring the bell on two more Starlet Showcase categories. If David Janssen was a girl, we'd have a Girl-Girl entry. And a red 1961 Pontiac convertible might help some. His shoes are all wrong for a forest ranger movie, but that of course is not the point. I found a few more stills from Ring of Fire. I've never seen it. The movie simply couldn't be as good as this publicity photo. But I guess we'll have to keep an eye out for more Joyce Taylor photos. Have a good weekend.
