I just finished watching one of my other loves, Ewan McGregor, in "Beauty and the Beast," so now I have to watch him in one of my favorite movies--"Moulin Rouge!"

A few of my British serials. They don't air every day of the week, but on Fridays they all air. So I have more episodes to get through today.

I'm watching CREST OF THE WAVE starring Gene Kelly. It's on YouTube. Interesting to see him and fellow MGM contractee Jeff Richards in a Boulting brothers film made in England.

Just saw the short film "Bargain Madness" (1951)--Shopaholics aren't to be messed with when at a sale, then or now, LOL.

Tonight is an Astaire/Rogers double feature.  I just finished watching Swing Time and now I'm watching Shall We Dance.  I must say that I find the dance number for the title song to be a bit strange--what's with all the Ginger masks? Though I do like when Ginger herself is wearing a Ginger mask.

 

I generally find masks kind of creepy to begin with, unless they're hilarious like Jim Carrey's "Mask."  

 

There's another number in I Love Melvin with Debbie Reynolds where she dances with dancers wearing Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly masks.  That was also a bizarre number.

A cute film on YouTube called INNOCENTS IN PARIS. It's a British comedy about British people in you guessed it Paris. 

 

Great cast: Alastair Sim; Margaret Rutherford; Claire Bloom; Claude Dauphin; and Laurence Harvey.

I'm watching A Tree Grows in Brooklyn live on TCM, which never happens. I've been wanting to see this movie for awhile now.

I just finished the Howard Hawks film "To Have And Have Not" featuring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. As we all know, this was Ms. Bacall's screen debut, as well as the first film she made with future hubby Bogey. Over the course of the next 5 years, they shared top billing in 3 more movies, all made by Warner Bros.. This is a really terrific movie. I've probably seen it at least 6 times, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it every time. 

 

The story of the behind-the-scenes budding romance between the two leads has become the stuff of Hollywood legend. The chemistry between these two jumps right off the screen, so much so that director Howard Hawks, knowing a good thing when he saw it, took advantage of their onscreen charisma by increasing Ms. Bacall's role by quite a bit. Unfortunately, this cost the other female lead, Dolores Moran, valuable screen time, even though she and Hawks were having an affair of their own during filming.

 

There are so many great scenes in this film, the most famous being the one in which "Slim" (Lauren Bacall) delivers the line "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and ... blow ..." . Wow! What an all-time classic scene! I'm sure that line is up near the top of every Greatest Movie Quotes list going. And Bogey's reaction to that line is one of my favorite little Bogart moments. I also love the scene near the end of the film when Slim does her little shimmy move while the great Hoagy Carmichael ("Cricket") plays her out the door...with the hop-stepping "Eddie" (Walter Brennan) in tow. Absolutely wonderful. This movie is full of classic scenes.

 

Howard Hawks has probably directed more 5-star movies than other director in the history of Hollywood, and To Have And Have Not is one of the best of his best. I doubt if there is anyone in this forum who hasn't seen this terrific movie, but on the off chance that you haven't, you are in for a real treat.

I'm watching THE TWO MRS. CARROLLS. 

 

This picture is above average, not exactly perfect, but something I can watch over and over. 

 

I love the atmospheric touches-- especially the scenes with all the wind. And for some reason, I like Bogey better when he's a cad.

Peter Gunn season 3. On Amazon Prime.

 

I'm watching Peter Gunn again. I'm down to the last two episodes. Can't believe the show ended after only three seasons.
