Don't Marry: Between Takes, on Location

This postcard shows the film crew on location (Pogonip ?). James Tinling, pictured on the right, is the director. The man who is knitting is the cameraman, Joe August. The man in the center is unidentified. The Sentinel wrote:

"Scenes are being shot on and about the Golf Links and Bob Jones property. Work here is expected to require a week or ten days.

Director Jim Tinling, who is not a stranger to this city, having shot exteriors here for "Soft Living" with Madge Bellamy, last December, yesterday expressed gratification at finding it possible to return to this locality so soon again, for, as he puts it, "We find settings and atmosphere here to be ideal for picture work and the spirit of congeniality and cooperation is wonderful, making work here a pleasure.

Joe August, chief cameraman, who first came to this region with William S. Hart in the days gone by, has long been sold on the advantages and scenic benefits to be found here. Joe Keeley is in charge of second camera, while Jim Gordon is their assistant."
