Contract Kid: William Reynolds on Douglas Sirk

CONTRACT KID: WILLIAM REYNOLDS ON DOUGLAS SIRK is twenty-three minutes of interesting first-hand comments on the Hollywood of the 50s. Shortly after his 1951 debut in William Wyler’s CARRIE, at Paramount, Reynolds became a “contract kid” at Universal, joining the throng of attractive young “stars of the future”. Reynolds never became a star, but was a familiar regular in many films of the period. Here the charming, dapper seventy-six year old actor who appeared in three of Douglas Sirk’s finest films (HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY GAL, THERE’S ALWAYS TOMORROW and ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS), compares working with Sirk, Wyler and Henry Hathaway, highlights the contribution of photographer Russell Metty, and shares his impressions of Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson and Barbara Stanwyck.
