i'm currently trying to locate primary sources pertaining to the production of anthony mann's winchester '73 (1950). the film was produced by universal and notable credits are as follows: anthony mann (director), aaron rosenberg (producer), borden chase (script), william daniels (photography) - as for cast, james stewart, dan duryea, rock hudson, stephen mcnally, shelley winters, millard mitchell, tony curtis, jay c. flippen, john mcintire. lang was originally slated to direct and worked through much of the preproduction. so far i have had little luck. if anyone has any information on archival collections that could be helpful, it would be much appreciated. i have already looked into the holdings at the academy - also, the universal holdings at usc. however, if there is, eg., an anthony mann collection kicking around, or a james stewart one - i'd be glad to find out.
