John Ford's Greatest Film at 70 (plus <em>In Harm's Way</em> at 50)
Huffington Post - about 1 year
It was 70 years ago this holiday season that the film I think is legendary director John Ford's greatest -- greater even than The Grapes of Wrath or The Searchers -- was released to an American public just a few months removed from the largest war in world history. They Were Expendable is the largely true story of a gallant defeat that set the stage for the victory to come, the last stand of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet in attempting to defend the Philippines in the wake of Japan's devastating attack on Pearl Harbor. The film, which features a host of veterans of the war just past, including director Ford, a Navy captain, and star Robert Montgomery, a Navy commander, focuses on the cockleshell heroes of the PT (patrol torpedo) boats, those speedy plywood vessels which began the war as an untried curiosity and ended it as one of the most glamorous, and perilous, of assignments. As a certain future president found out the hard way. It is also 50 years since In Harm's Way, another Wor ...

  • TEENAGE
  • 1965
    Age 19
    Haworth dated television producer Aaron Spelling in the summer of 1965, when he was 42 and she was almost 20.
    More Details Hide Details Spelling reportedly told friends that he hoped that Haworth would be the next Mrs. Spelling, but Haworth's mother, Nancy, reportedly "scoffed" at the idea.
    In 1965, she appeared in an episode of The Rogues entitled "Mr. White's Christmas" as Timothea, and really loved working with David Niven and Charles Boyer.
    More Details Hide Details She appeared in one of the final episodes of the series Rawhide, "Duel at Daybreak", as Vicki Woodruff. Haworth first hurt her back in an accident on the set when she jumped from a runaway buggy and team of horses. She then caught pneumonia and was bedridden for two months after she had to stand waist-deep in a man-made pond for six hours doing retakes. She starred in the horror films It! (1966), The Haunted House of Horror (1969), Tower of Evil (1972), Home for the Holidays (1972), and The Mutations (1974). She only did It! for the money, hated her hair in the film, and hated the film altogether. Haworth liked working with Roddy McDowell, who brought her the poster for the film (on her opening night of Cabaret), and wrote "S-h" in front of the title.
  • 1964
    Age 18
    Their relationship as a couple ended on Valentine's Day 1964 when she discovered Sal was having an affair with Bobby Sherman.

  • 1960
    Age 14
    She and Mineo appeared on the front cover of the 12 December 1960 issue of LIFE, part of a photo essay by Gjon Mili.
    More Details Hide Details Under contract to Preminger (for five years), she also worked with him in The Cardinal (1963; as Lalage Menton), and In Harm's Way (1965) as Ensign Annalee Dorne, a Nurse Corps officer who, while engaged to Ensign Jeremiah Torrey (Brandon de Wilde), commits suicide after being raped by Captain Paul Eddington, Jr. (Kirk Douglas). Haworth liked working with De Wilde, Patricia Neal, and Douglas, but called John Wayne "the meanest, nastiest man with the worst attitude I ever worked with." Preminger insisted that she live in New York City to become Americanized, but he did not want her to live in Los Angeles for fear she would just be a 'starlet a-go-go'. She was approached to be the title character in Lolita (1962) with James Mason, but because Preminger held her contract, he vetoed the idea.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1953
    Age 7
    She took ballet lessons at the prestigious Sadler's Wells Ballet School to escape from an unhappy home when her parents separated in 1953.
    More Details Hide Details Later she attended the Corona Stage School. Her first film appearance was in the remake of The 39 Steps (1959), directed by Ralph Thomas, when she had a non-speaking part as a schoolgirl. Next she played another schoolgirl in The Brides of Dracula (1960), directed by Terence Fisher. Otto Preminger was looking for a new fresh face for the role of Karen, an ill-fated Jewish-Danish refugee girl in love with Dov Landau (Sal Mineo), for his film Exodus (1960). He travelled to Britain and Germany, with his fiance' Hope Bryce, looking for a girl for the role. After looking at hundreds of girls, Preminger spotted a photo of Haworth in a modelling magazine for the Corona Theatre School. Haworth only went to the three auditions to get out of school. She was only 15 years old when she appeared as Karen in her first acting role in a feature film. Haworth appeared in the 31 July 1960 issue of Parade magazine.
