Let's All Go To The Movies - The Empty Canvas

Occasionally the search for old photographs finds your LOST GALLERY curator in the darkest corner of a junk shop, elbow deep in a hat-box of ephemera. It's rare, but occasionally we see a familiar face ...

Horst Buckholtz. He appeared in over 80 movies including "The Magnificent Seven" with Brynner, Bronson and McQueen. Here he is in a rather obscure 1963 movie named "The Empty Canvas" with Catherine Spaak. Bette Davis was also in the movie playing the part of Buckholtz' mother.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. I always liked him. Wonderful in Tiger Bay with a very young Hayley Mills. And I'm trying to remember the Coca Cola one with Jimmy Cagney. What was that title?

    1. Thanks Tattered and Lost. Handsome lad, isn't he? The Cagney move was "One, Two, Three" and it was a favorite of mine too. I thought it was an unusual role for Cagney.

  2. That was it. I couldn't remember the title. Yes, an odd Cagney film. A gruff corporate man. Not what we expected.

    1. Thanks. I have not seen it in years. I used to have my own tape of it. It's a popular belief that Cagney played gangsters mostly, but he didn't. He played many comedic roles and even a musical or two.
