A vendor has listed a lot of about 500 transparencies that were owned by a “Hollywood filmmaker.” A bit of research indicates that these probably belonged to Jack Greenhalgh, a prolific cinematographer who worked on such low-budget pictures as “Hollywood Barndance” and the immortal “Robot Monster.”
Of particular interest is two images — not shown in the EBay listing — that the vendor says show Elizabeth Short as an extra in a film that is in all probability “Adventure Island” with Rory Calhoun and Rhonda Fleming, which was filmed on Santa Catalina Island in September 1946 and released in 1947. In all my years of research, I have never heard anything about Elizabeth Short ever setting foot in front of a movie camera, although she was in Los Angeles at the time.
