PHOTOS OF THE DAY: MAN ON FIRE
I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the forgotten Bing film MAN ON FIRE(1957). The film was Bing's second of two films he made at MGM (HIGH SOCIETY was the first in 1956). The dramatic film about how a divorce is pulling a child's life apart was not well received, but I still enjoy the movie. The cast also included great supporting work from Inger Stevens and E.G.
