“Birth of Legends” (A film by Paramount Pictures starring Richard Dean Anderson and John de Lancie, directed by Charles Correll 1995)
An agreement was reached in 1994 between Michael Greenberg and Paramount Pictures to produce a number of films which included “Birth of Legends”.
Written by Michael Pillar and Bill Dial, it starred Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver), in a story about the 1870's West,
where a boozing
(Richard Dean Anderson) assumed the identity of his books' hero, Nicodemus Legend.
It was directed by Charles Correll to be photographed in Tucson Arizona. In March of 1995. I had the pleasure to play a round of golf with Mr. Correll before
shooting started, and asked him if he was interested to have someone shoot with an 8x10 view camera on the set during the filming. He agreed, and the following
images were taken during the next two weeks. The locations were in Tucson, the Old Tucson sound stage, a site near Nogales, and in the town of Mescal, near
Benson Arizona. All images were taken with an 8x10 Wisner view camera, and printed in the platinum palladium photographic process.
