Gordon Westcott

  1. William Gargan, Four Frightened People, 1933.   Seeking an overly macho hero, director Cecil B DeMille scanned Westcott and Preston Foster before deciding on Gargan  – among four passengers nescaping by lifeboat from a coastal steamer riddled with bubonic plague and landing on a tropical isle full of jungle, wild animals. angry natives and… cholera! CB directed with tongue as firmly in cheek as Claudette Colbert held giant jungle leaves to hide her nudity during a signature CB bath. Al fresco, this once.
