[Update: This is the filming of “The Domino Principle” in the mess hall at San Quentin in a photo stamped May 7, 1976. On the jump, Roderick Mann’s first-rate profile of “Domino” star Gene Hackman, in which he talks about taking some roles for the money and being disappointed that “The Conversation” failed. I suppose that in 1978 “The Conversation” did seem like a failure, but it’s a terrific movie.]

I apologize for the obvious seam in this oversized print but I wanted to run the full photo rather than only what my scanner can accommodate in one pass.

[Updated 7:07 a.m. A previous version of this post said the photo was stamped 1978. The stamp says 1976]
