EDMUND, JONATHAN, ANGIE, CHARMAINE, PAT, RICKY, LEON. FRONT ROW: OLYMPIA, FOSTER
IT WAS 1975 AND YOURS TRULY (A VERY VERY VERY YOUNG MISTER DE WITT) WAS IN LOVE WITH "THE SYLVERS" AND WHEN THEY APPEARED ON "AMERICAN BANDSTAND" PERFORMING "BOOGIE FEVER" I ONLY HAD LUSTFUL THOUGHTS!!! I LOVED IT ALL...THE HAIR!, METALLIC PRINT KIMONO TOPS W/OBI SASH, SILVER SLACKS, CHOKERS, KNICKERS, GLITTER SOCKS...AND THAT'S JUST THE BOYS! EDMUND SINGING LEAD WITH THAT CUTE "GAP TOOTH" SMILE ( WHICH HE HAD CORRECTED WITH THE MONEY FROM THIS SINGLE ) WAS SOOOOO SEXY AND LITTLE FOSTER...JUST ADORABLE!
SORRY TO SAY EDMUND SYLVERS PASSED IN 2004 FROM LUNG CANCER.
AND WHAT EVER HAPPEN TO LITTLE BROTHER FOSTER YOU ASK?

AS A CREATIVE PERSON MR. DE WITT LOVES TO PULL THE CURTAIN BACK AND GET INSIDE THE PROCESS..."A STAR IS BORN" GEROGE CUKOR MASTERPIECE AND MISS JUDY GARLAND TOUR DE FORCE PERFORMANCE...A PRODUCTION 3YRS IN THE MAKING, RIDDLED WITH PROBLEMS...JUDY'S FRAGILE MENTAL STATE, HER HUSBAND SID LUFT'S VERY HANDS ON PRODUCING TECHNIQUES, MR. CUKOR'S NEED FOR PERFECTION, AND THE STUDIO'S INTERFERENCE ( WARNER BROS. CUT 30MIN FROM THE ORIGINAL 181MIN CUKOR VERSION!). IN THIS CLIP THE MOVIES SHOW-STOPPER "THE MAN THAT GOT A WAY" WAS FILMED 3 DIFFERENT WAYS OVER THE COURSE OF 5 MONTHS UNTIL MR. CUKOR WAS PLEASED.
HERE ARE ALL THREE TAKES OF JUDY GARLAND SINGING "THE MAN THAT GOT AWAY" FROM "A STAR IS BORN."
THE TOP IMAGE IS THE FIRST TAKE, FILMED ON OCTOBER 21ST, 1953, FEATURING JUDY IN A PINK BLOUSE. THE CAMERAMAN COULD NOT GIVE CUKOR WHAT HE WANTED: "LOW LIGHT LEVELS, THE IMPRESSIONISTIC FEELING OF THE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, GARLAND MOVING IN AND OUT OF POOLS OF LIGHT," SO HE WAS FIRED.
CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE COSTUME AND SET AND THE NUMBER WAS RE-FILMED ON OCTOBER 29TH (THE MIDDLE IMAGE).
GENE ALLEN: "THE FIRST TIME IT LOOKED AS IF WE HAD PAINTED A SET TO LOOK LIKE A BAR. SO TO GIVE IT A SLIGHTLY IMPRESSIONISTIC LOOK I...PUT A SCRIM BETWEEN THE MUSICIANS AND THE BACK BAR. IF YOU LOOK VERY CAREFULLY AT THAT SCENE YOU CAN SEE THE SCRIM NAILED DOWN ON THE FLOOR..." (LOOK FOR TOM NOONAN'S SHADOW ON THE SCRIM!)
EARL BELLAMY: "WHEN JUDY SANG TO PLAYBACK, YOU COULDN'T HEAR ANYTHING...SHE WANTED ME TO START AT FULL BLAST AND THEN SHE TOPPED IT...YOU COULD HEAR JUDY CLEAR AS A BELL, AND SHE SANG RIGHT WITH IT..."
GARLAND DID 27 TAKES OF THE NUMBER OVER THREE DAYS, BOTH PARTIAL AND COMPLETE. BUT "CUKOR HAD HER DOING BITS OF BUSINESS BEFORE THE SONG, AND ALL OF THAT ACTION DIDN'T REALLY FIT THE SONG - IT WAS JUST TOO BUSY. AND SHE DIDN'T LOOK GOOD - HER COSTUME WAS WRINKLED, IT DIDN'T FIT RIGHT." AND THE COLOR WAS WRONG: TOO BROWN.
IT WAS FILMED FOR A THIRD TIME IN FEBRUARY OF 1954, WITH NEW HAIRSTYLE AND COSTUME AND A NEW SET USING REDS AND BLUES (THE BOTTOM IMAGE).
NOW MR. DE WITT HAS NO PROBLEM WITH A DO OVER, HOWEVER, HE PREFERS THE FIRST TAKE... IT'S MORE OF A RAW PREFORMANCE...SORRY GEORGE...THANKS "MARKNYC5" ON YOUTUBE FOR BACKSTORY INFO AND THIS GREAT CLIP!

IN RESPONSE TO POSTING THIS CLIP THE FOLLOWING EMAIL WAS SENT TO BLOGGER "KENNETH IN THE 212" :
I read your story about the closeted actor who raped a former boyfriend. All of the names listed were wrong, it was actually Will Smith. You and Page 6 were wrong about some of the other details as well. The former boyfriend did report Will to the Lost Hills Sherrifs Department. The payoff was done to keep him from pressing charges. The charges were indeed dropped. The former boyfriend also needed surgery because his anus had a small split called a fisure after the incident.
To set the record straight, it wasn't rape, it was more of rough play that the two played on many occasions. It got out of hand and Will didn't stop. He's not a rapist but he and his wife both live a life filled with lies. They don't have sex with each other or in thier home. They live in Hidden Hills but they have a seperate home in nearby Agoura Hills just for sex with others. If this world were more accepting of gay people, I think Will and Jada would be living happy, honest lives with other people. On a final note, I was one of Will's boyfriends for a while. I think we all get a max of 4 months and then he moves on.
DO YOU BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE? HUMMMM?
