    Even Gene Tierney who was often cast in roles because of her beauty, had an overbite. There are actresses who are not conventionally attractive, like Bette Davis, or Barbara Stanwyck that I think are very pretty. I've even thought Agnes Moorehead was pretty on occasion. Part of what makes them attractive to me is the personality they bring to the screen. Just like now, so many of the blonde starlets are so interchangeable. They don't bring anything to the screen except being pretty.

    Kay Francis wasn't a conventional beauty but I think she was beautiful. She had an intelligent face and eyes, that's what comes across on the screen, at least for me. There's more to a conventionally beautiful face to make an actress beautiful. Bette and Angela were beautiful, So far I haven't seen one post that would agree with the OP's opinion.

    Bette Davis was beautiful. Angela Lansbury is beautiful. Not everyone has to be a blue eyed, buxom blonde to be considered attractive.

    In France, Too Late for Tears is called La Tigresse, which I think is the best title of all for this film.

    "Walkabout" - Nicholas Roeg - 1971 - starring Jenny Agutter, Lucien John and David Gumpilil - uniquely crafted story about two children who are stranded in the Austrailian outback and the aborigine boy they encounter who is on a "walkabout" - the visual design of this film is thrilling - it's alive with every kind of creature - it's about survivial, I think - under the most horrific circumstances - who will live and who will die? - a truly haunting experience - (Lucien John is actually Nicholas Roeg's son, Luc Roeg.)

    Scott Dworkin‏Verified account@funder BREAKING: GOP consultant tells me Trump is “absolutely enraged” by the news coverage of his meeting with Pelosi and Schumer today. Trump apparently blames Pence for not speaking up. He thinks Pence “lost it for him.” And he wishes he never held the meeting, calling it a “set up.”

    Ironic this comes from the man who unwittingly helped Trump get elected: Comey calls on Americans to 'use every breath we have' to oust Trump in 2020 Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump's presidency with a "landslide" victory for his opponent in 2020. "All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City's Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election. "I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be," Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, "but they have to win. They have to win." https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/comey-calls-on-americans-to-use-every-breath-we-have-to-oust-trump-in-2020/ar-BBQJTvX?li=AAggFp5&ocid=mailsignout

    All those Power films you have recorded are worth viewing, Speedy. But since you're a Flynn fan you might be particularly interested in The Mark of Zorro to compare Power as a swashbuckler to Flynn. Not only does the film have a magnificent, fast paced duel with Basil Rathbone, but Ty is extraordinarily effective playing Don Diego, fop by day, and Zorro, masked avenger of the common folk by night. As you're watching you might also speculate how Errol would have fared in the same role. Could he have pulled off the fop scenes? We'll never know but Power certainly does, and he does so with a subtle humour that is most delightful.

    TOO LATE FOR TEARS (1949) WOW!!!!! I wasn't loving this movie first while, but then it really took off. Definitely has my new favorite Dan Duryea scene of all time. It was amazing. And definitely my new favorite Lizabeth Scott movie ever, not that ever really had one before. What a shame Scott didn't like the movie. I thought she was magnificent. She really seemed to be the Femme Fatale who genuinely could not help herself. Her struggle was great. Sometimes there was remorse and sometimes there wasn't. It was outstanding. I think my least favorite part was the end. I don't think it was bad. It just didn't quite give me the level of satisfaction I was looking for.

    John Oberlin‏ @OMGno2trump If Mueller can tie Trump to Manafort as a co-conspirator then a pardon won't save him. Any pardon for a co-conspirator would almost certainly be invalidated by a court. And Trump trying it could be evidence of obstruction of justice.

    "Gee, you just hit me with everything but the kitchen sink!" -"Well, don't wannna disappoint ya chum!" BAM! The preceding was was brought to you by the comic genius of Tex Avery, and courtesy one his now seemingly little remembered created characters Screwball "Screwy" Squirrel... (...always thought this little guy's antics were pretty funny, although I understand many never cared much for him...perhaps this led to his rather limited filmography)
