I've had no luck locating a DVD or showing of Crane Wilbur's 1948 Canon City. Shot by John Alton....Any leads???

Try Eddie Brandt's Saturday Matinee video store in the San Fernando Valley. If they don't have it, no one does.

The writer/director of Canon City, Crane Wilbur had an amazingly prolific career - he acted on Broadway for years, appeared as the lead male in Perils of Pauline and dozens of films, then went on to write and direct dozens more features.

What will be harder to find I'd imagine are all the Argentine films of John Alton.

BORDER INCIDENT is possibly my favorite Alton film even though it's almost all day exteriors. (It's almost the same plot as T MEN, which everyone is still blown away by when they see it for the first time.) Outdoors, I love the way the director (Anthony Mann, of course) and Alton stage and block in such extreme depth. DEVIL'S DOORWAY is a western the the two men did a lot of outdoors work as well - it's one way to study other tendencies of this master cameraman.
