Production Set Still: Talent Roundup Day

Cubby O'Brien gives full attention to another virtuoso, Steve Gadd, who was rehearsing his performance for Talent Roundup Day. Director Sid Miller, for whom the entrance of a still photographer onto the set had much the same effect as a silent dog-whistle on canines, made sure he got into the frame (see full photo at right).

The Full Picture

Set stills like this were made for the property department, and were not intended for release as publicity photos. Most set stills are devoid of cast and crew; the photographer was only concerned with capturing the appearence of the stage and the presence of people in the frame was a matter of indifference. Hence, when they do show up, as above, they are often out of focus and poorly lit.
