Adam Sans Toupee? It Did Happen Once!

Postby Gillie » Thu Dec 29, 2011 2:55 am

If it's true that Pernell Roberts wanted to play Adam Cartwright without his toupee,
then it appears that he got his wish on at least one occasion.

Brrrrrrrr....I bet that water was COLD!

When he first falls in the river, Adam has his hat.

Then the hat floats away.

Adam sans toupee.

Still no hair in this side-view.

CUT! A quick replacement!

And by the time Adam emerges from behind the horse, he's back to normal.

It all happens in about 2 seconds, so if you are just watching the vid, you may not have noticed it.
The fuzziness of some of the caps is due to the movement in the scene...there is not a clear image to capture every fraction of a second. :sob

This is also the scene infamous for having a moving car in the background in one of the long shots of Adam in the river.
