Red Line 7000

Marianna Hill and James Caan in Red Line 7000 (1965).  James went on to co-star in Howard Hawks’ next film, the superior El Dorado (1966).  Marianna didn’t make much of an impression with her big break for Howard Hawks, but she was able to squeeze out a career that began in 1960 and ran through something called  Chief Zabu in 2016 and a total of 84 acting credits.

Gail Hire made a poor impression in Red Line 7000 (1965), her big break with Howard Hawks.  Her only other acting credit was as Miss Bacon in two episodes of Batman (1966)

John Robert Crawford made no impression in Red Line 7000 (1965), his big break with Howard Hawks.  It was his only film appearance.

Laura Devon and John Robert Crawford in an original publicity still for Red Line 7000 (1965).  Of Howard Hawks’ three female discoveries in the film, Laura came off the best, with good looks and sex appeal.  She had 26 acting credits from 1960 to 1967, five in films, with the rest on tv.

Howard Hawks directing Charlene Holt in a publicity still for Red Line 7000 (1965), the second of three films she made with Hawks, after Mans Favorite Sport (as Rock Hudon’s girlfriend), and before El Dorado.  Despite all the work with Hawks, her career didn’t amount to much otherwise.

Howard Hawks with Gail Hire on the set of Red Line 7000 (1965).  Hawks was not pleased with Gail’s diva behavior on set.  Once she was cast by Hawks, she believed she was already a superstar.

John Robert Crawford and Laura Devon are two of the fresh faces in Red Line 7000 (1965).  Howard Hawks’ knack for undiscovered talent largely failed him while casting Red Line, although James Caan went on to a major Hollywood career, and a second, superior Hawks film, El Dorado.
