1971: Cannon fires at Preminger

Dec.27, 1971:

“I was horrified,” Dyan Cannon exploded after (finally) seeing the composite nude foto Otto Preminger full-screened her in “Such Good Friends.” Miss C. caught “Friends” with friends in the privacy of the Crest theater. She didn’t comment whether the picture flattered or insulted her figure, but did allow of the pic, as a whole, “It’s the first time I’ve been able to like myself in a film” She does not, by the way, plan any legal action vs. Preminger, saying “I only told him I don’t work in the nude,” when refusing to do nudie scenes. “Next time, I’ll specify in my contract to protect myself against something like this happening again.” On Christmas Day, she regained custody of daughter Jennifer from Cary Grant who did Disneyland with his daughter last week … “The Magnificent Seven Ride” will be made for under a million-$ and filmed entirely in Hollywood, interiors at Goldwyn, exteriors on the Universal backlot and the 20th ranch, says producer Walter Mirisch who set George McCowen, a TV alumnus to rein the latest “7” starring Lee Van Cleef. (Mirisch says today, “It is absolutely true — it was made for under a million-$.” And he continued the saga of the septet with a TV series which ran two years. Of course, nothing was ever able to equal the original (1960) “Magnificent Seven” (inspired by “Seven Samurai”). directed by John Sturges and starring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Eli Wallach, Horst Buchholz, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and Brad Dexter. Plus the magnificent theme by Elmer Bernstein.)
