Other nominations went to Susan Flannery (as Kirk Douglas' lawyer girlfriend), to Joseph Biroc for his photography, and to Phill Norman for his graphics and opening titles. Of interest: Jean Peters returned to films here after spending nearly twenty years in retirement -- most of them as Mrs. Howard Hughes.
