Re: Susan/Photo/Canyon Passage

" Canyon Passage shows her beauty to perfection especially with the richly coloured long hair."

Yes I completely agree. Many of those ' adventurers'/ westerns / historicals she made during the 50's in colour highlighted that strongly. ' Tap Roots'-
' David and Bathsheba'- ' Garden of Evil' - ' Untamed' all showcased the titian locks in their tumbling glory.

But I confess the two from the 50's era that I most clearly recall as stunning me senseless at the time by the brilliance of her long hair style were 'Demetrius and the Gladiators' and the ill-fated ' The Conqueror'. While that may well have been an appallingly bad movie by film quality standards and be dismissed by 'serious' critics as trashy ever since its debut on screens back in 1956, her hair was glorious.

( Had ' Rawhide' been made in colour I suspect that one may have joined the list as well!! )

Re: Susan/Photo/Canyon Passage

I completely agree with you Kerry. Susan's hair was so thick and rich that it would lend to any hair style but particularly the longer look, just glorious (I love the word glorious!) Such a shame that "Rawhide" wasn't in colour.
I actually love "The Conqueror" - music wise it is beautiful too and Susan was sensational in it. Of course, she was sensational in everything!
