Fwd: Re: Ty's Posture (was Popularity of dinosaurs in the 1920s/30s?)

I have a few photographs...the primary one, given to me by Marcel
Delgado before his death, has the back part of the tail cropped,
taking a ruler one can see that the back was horizontal. Delgado
told me it
was a "roadrunner from hell", but that OBie was frustrated it
over. Finally, he abandoned the idea, as when he positioned the
on its back during filming of the test-reel, steel rods had to
be used to
hold the tyrannosaur puppet up. Delgado told me that OBie wanted
to redo the
test reel fight sequence (the only part of the test reel to survive,
unchanged into the final print) with the repostured theropod,
but RKO had
already gutted the budget of the film, and there was no time.
