COOPER&BURNETT posted a topic in Cooper & Burnett's Miami Vice ScrapbookThis is another Extremely, Extremely Rare item for you to see. This is so Rare...it's a One-Of-A-Kind! This is a Continuity Polaroid photo of MICHAEL TALBOTT on the set of MIAMI VICE, on the paperwork with the description of what he is wearing. The Polaroid is also a One-Of-A-Kind picture. In it, he's doing what he does best...goofing off for the camera! He looks like he's acting that he's passed out! Here is a moment in time on the set, with a soda in one hand, and the script in the other. PRICELESS! A continuity photo is taken of all the members of the cast on the day of filming, so that if they need to shoot a scene the next day, or a pick up shot later, they know what they wore, and how it visually looked. Not many of these escaped the production into private hands. There are a precious few out there, but each one is different, and Unique. No two are alike. This is a rare example, so you, the member here, can see for the very first time what this item looked like when MIAMI VICE was on TV. Each photo is unique. Most actors just stood there, and didn't even smile for the photo, as it is only taken as a reference of what they looked like that day on the set. Michael, of course, liked to ham it up, and have fun with it, which makes it all the more fun! On one side, and sometimes also under the taped-on Poloroid photo is a description as to what they wore. The Continuity Director worked closely with the Wardrobe Dept. This may have actually been taken by the Wardrobe Dept., as the Continuity Dept. had to keep an eye on every detail, such as props to make sure they are in the same place from shot to shot. The description, in many cases even stated the maker of the clothes that were worn. It also usually gives the name of the Character, the scene of which he is in wearing the clothes, and the set it was worn on. On the top right corner, under the actors name, is a number. That number incicates which episode the actor was filming at the time (titles change, but the episode production number won't). In this case, the number for the episode is 63519, indicating that this photo, and episode is from Season 4. THE COWS OF OCTOBER episode number is 63510, but if you count up to 63519, it's not DELIVER US FROM EVIL, as he didn't wear these clothes in that episode. It's not in perfect sequence of the MIAMI VICE episodes in exact order, as they didn't make 6,000 + episodes. With a number as high as 63519, it encompasses all Universal Productions, and this number is the one that fell on the production of this particular episode. Other episodes from Season 4 are close to this number, so it is from Season 4. I don't know exactly which one ...yet. I hope you have enjoyed this very rare look into the production of MIAMI VICE! Once again, it's a MiamiViceOnline Exclusive!
