"The Magnifican Seven" series
Pencil on paper; 10"x8"

Heralded as one of the all-time great Westerns ever filmed, the production of "The Magnificent Seven" took place in Tepotzlan, a little village outside of Cuernevaca, Mexico, and the Churubusco Studios in Mexico City during February and March of 1960.

Yul Brynner topped a solid group of young talented actors, many of whom went on to become big stars later in their careers. Director John Sturges included Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, James Coburn, Brad Dexter and newcomer Horst Bucholtz, augmented by seasoned performers Eli Wallach and Vladimir Sokoloff. Accomplished actors from Mexican films completed a history-making cast.

Considered by his peers as one of the top production executives in the Industry, Allen K. Wood supervised the production and brought his wife, artist Lorraine Dell Wood, down to the Cuernevaca estate housing the stars and executives. Fortunately, she was able to sketch some of the actors on the set, between scenes. Six of these sketched portraits are presented here.
