newly discovered 1947 movie Ned Scott photographed for Columbia Studios

on Sunday, 23 October 2011. Posted in News

My research has just revealed a 1947 movie that Ned Scott photographed for Columbia Studios called "The Guilt of Janet Ames". The movie stars Rosalind Russell, Melvyn Douglas, Sid Caesar and Nina Foch. The film is directed by Henry Levin for Columbia. The general theme of this drama is that one cannot escape the vicissitudes of life despite all the good intentions and grand efforts of psychoanalysts and good friends. Life is just one step ahead at every turn. The psychological downside holds dangers such as long standing resentment which can alter one's perception of reality, especially one's own. My father saved one 11 x 14 oversize print from this film in his own collection--a portrait of Russell. My sister has the print in her collection. Up to this point in my research, no clue as to the origin of the print existed. Now I can marry the print with its film origin, a satisfying moment for me as researcher.
