Hells Island 1955

This is a film I do not know at all but came across this poster for it today. Hells Island 2     It is filmed in VistaVision – and stars John Payne and Mary Murphy. Mary Murphy and John Payne having fun on the set of Hells Island Above: John Payne and Mary Murphy having fun on the set of Hells Island 1955. I didn’t know anything about Mary Murphy but looking her up it seems that she was in quite a lot of films but none of them well remembered but she was a very attractive actress so would certainly have caught the Directors and Producers Eyes at the time I would think. She was briefly married in 1956 to Dale Robertson – in fact she was married to him from June 1956 to September 1956 – so even by Hollywood standards this was brief.  However they remained friends – they had met when they both appeared in the film Sitting Bull in 1954

    Mary Murphy was also in a really good war movie BEACHHEAD 1954 with Tony Curtis and Frank Lovejoy. BILL

      Bill, Thanks for this information and again this is a film I am not too familiar with and such a comment as yours will push me into getting the film and watching it. I remember that we corresponded a few years ago on The Secret of Treasure Mountain.
      As regards Mary Murphy, she seems to have done very well in films without quite making top star status but her career looks to have been a very interesting and eventful one. Thanks again, Neil
