"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

His performance in "Hobson's Choice" is one of "cinema's miracles".

 

They're all so great in HOBSON'S CHOICE. One of David Lean's very best.

Yea Mildred Pierce is his most famous film due to Crawford winning an Oscar.    Scott was in many fine films and I wish TCM would have shown at least 4 films instead of just 2:

 

He made an impression in his first film The Mask of Dimitrios even with this film revolving mostly around the Lorre \ Greenstreet team. 

 

The Unfaithful - the semi remake of The Letter.

 

Shadow on the Wall -  Minor role for him but Ann Sothern has a unique role.

 

Born to be Bad -  Showcase for Joan Fontaine but Scott is good at playing the confused 'who do I love' man.

 

Lighting Strikes Twice -  must see for Ruth Roman fans with a minor role for Scott.

 

One film I haven't seen is Appointment in Honduras but I would like too with a cast of Ann Sheridan,  Glenn Ford and Scott.

 

Another good one is LET'S MAKE IT LEGAL, done on loan to Fox, where he plays Claudette Colbert's new suitor despite her ex-husband's objections. And I also like the noir classic RUTHLESS he did at Eagle-Lion. 

 

APPOINTMENT IN HONDURAS has some good action sequences, but his role is under-developed because it's a Glenn Ford picture.

I would agree. It probably is. Though Warners used him often as a cad in various melodramas and film noir.

Exceptional actor, he should always be seen in "Zorba The Greek" and "Nijinsky".

 

Alan Bates is someone who should definitely receive an all-day Summer Under the Stars tribute. So many good performances in the films he made.
