His Kind of Woman is a 1951 film noir starring Robert Mitchum as Dan Milner, Jane Russell as Lenore Brent & Vincent Price as Mark Cardigan.
Robert Mitchum, who referred to himself as ‘The Tall Dog’, called Jane Russell ‘Hard John’ because of her strict, straitlaced religious beliefs. When a male reporter questioned these in light of her image, she told the reporter, ‘Christians can have big breasts too.’ Whatever sexual chemistry Mitchum and Russell had onscreen, the two performers were never more than friends.
Vincent Price threw a party on the set celebrating his one-year anniversary working on His Kind of Woman. Mitchum had been patient for over a year, during the multiple rewrites and reshoots. However, he snapped on the penultimate day of shooting during a fight scene, and started fighting for real with the stunt men who were manhandling him. He destroyed the set and all the lighting and sound equipment on the stage, all the while cursing at everyone involved with the production.
