From the film "Four Daughters" 1938

"http://www.youtube.c...bed/-3wxT1fFUFY"

This is John Garfield's film debut, and here you can witness a "star being born."

Once John Garfield's character "Mickey Borden" enters into the film, you can't take your eyes off him. He steals the movie, and shocks to audience with his beautiful portrayal of the lost and bitter young musician.

The eternal outsider always looking in.

The first film rebel was born! He paved the way for all the other "film" rebels.

Yes I agree with you, one of the most sexy scenes ever captured on film. And to think this was all done with their clothes on. In my opinion actors could act back then. Through out the film the chemistry between Garfield and Turner is "red hot." A thousand times better than the newer version with Nicholson and Lange. This of course is just my opinion.

One of the most sexy scenes ever. The minimal dialogue really makes the scenes. What is left unspoken is best left unspoken. Garfield is hooked even if he doesn't know it yet.

This is the famous lipstick scene from "The Postman Always Rings Twice" 1946, starring John Garfield & Lana Turner. It amazing, you can actually see his breath being taken away as he gets his full look at lovely Lana. Then when he makes her come to him to get the lipstick, it is very masculine & sexy. Her look back at him is priceless. It is as if she is saying, "So that the kind of game you want to play." All this is done with minimal dialgoue. Great sexy scene." {font:Arial}{color:black};) {font}

Hi Fred. I didn't realize this subject / or thread is so old. Any ways I agree with you that last scene from Fugitive From A Chain Gang is great. I read somewhere that it wasn't planned for the lights to go out when Paul Muni said the last words, "I steal" but that the director liked it so much he left the scene as it was filmed. Great movie, great scene (haunting) and one of Muni's great performances.

I hadn't thought of this movie in a while, but the mention of the title brings this clip back to me entirely. I love the expression on the tech's face at the 4:30 mark; it is the one shot that sells it for me.

I love the use of music in this.

Thanks, Mr6.

This one dovetails nicely with your selection, featuring the generation of schoolboys that followed.

Here is Glenn Ford, (as a teacher fortuitously named "Dadier") kicking butt and taking names, in The Blackboard Jungle.

It's fun to see the youthful Vic Morrow and Sidney Poitier playing smoking smirking punks, and Jameel Farah, later known as Jamie Farr, playing . . . what? a kid who seems a little . . . off.



It ends too soon, and anticlimactically. Frustrating if you're into it, but not many clips available on YT of this one.

I wonder if a teacher today, faced with a group like this, could deal with them this way without having to worry about a lawsuit.

Audrey and Albert had some great dialogue in that one. Excellent idea.

One of my sisters (an Audrey wannabe in her youth) tells me Albert reminds her of me in that one. I think she is remembering a time when we were driving one day, bickering about whatever (I think I didn't want to change the radio station). It had been raining earlier and I had my window down. A car passed us and splashed water on my face. She busted out laughing.

I turned the radio up.

That's a good looking film, CBL.

Here's a sequence from Monkey Business I enjoy. It starts too late here - I would have preferred it begin at that car lot where Cary recognizes Marilyn just by the sight of her legs.

I love watching MMs facial expressions here. Happiness, surprise, shock, disappointment. It's all there without a word.

In honor of David Lean and Jack Cardiff:

from Summertime (1955). Note her first tour on the Canals of Venice aboard the "Bus" One of the best blends of photography and music I have ever seen.

Yes, she enjoyed working in THE FIVE PENNIES and I think it shows in her performance, especially in the musical sequences and scenes with Danny Kaye.

She actually enjoyed her acting career and retired voluntarily at age 17 and had a happy and productive life.
