  3. Your Choice For 1961 Best Supporting Actor Oscar

    To sewhiute2000, have you ever seen the real "Minnesotta Fats" playing pool? Welp, "The Great 0ne: Jackie Gleason's" take on it was a 180. Calm, cool & as a book says massively deceptive in that role. & unlike *Paul it's true did his own shots. (NOTE: For Ralph Kramden fans a stunningly bad (*1/2 at best) from '68 he made was "Skidoo" Even having Groucho as a little angel or something running awround him in it! & he truly deserved a 2nd s. actor shot for the still rarely heard of 1986 "Nothing In Common" ($16m.) (***1/2) opposite *Tom Hanks. Plus, among our fav TCM-ITE ladies *Eva Marie Saint, now 94 also on hand. Garry Marshall helmed that nice but sad comedy-drama WATCH FOR IT! (P.S. Who remembers pool championships being on ABC Sports "Wide World of Sports" mostly in the 1970's? & Willie Mosconi would always defeat Fats too!
  4. Your Choice For 1961 Best Supporting Actor Oscar

    AGREED 100% Clift was more than brilliant in "Nuremberg" however, how much was his true self vs that torn character? I've heard messages on the phone between him & his brother the next yr & Monty was more then excited that he would not only earn what woulda' been his 5th shot, but even "Walk Down-the-Aisle" for *Huston;s very strong (***1/2) bio "Freud" Neither happened though In retrospect nowadays it's amazing "THE MISFITS" even got finished to begin with, what with MM being incredibally late each and every day Many insist *"The King" tried to kill time waiting for her by playing rough house with those Horses-(he also was so happy about doping this pic he went from 237 to 195lbs & FAST! & of course both he, Clift & *Huston got loaded much of the time, having then nada to do with Marilyn though this time out. She hated this role though & Arthur Miller-(l9l5-2005) for scripting her such a role as another misfit. It was just after, I think they divorced & DiMaggio was her true hero in the end. Eli Wallach seemed to just stay the coarse though.(TRIVCIAL this utterly depressing, yet powerful film was a first on many accounts for *Clark. His biggest salary at over $750.000 & he truly thought he would win Best actor again, but was robbed of a 4th nomination though woulda' been (posthumously) of course. & Marilyn always admired him since being a little girl & when she had more than an awful childhood, she'd like to dream & pretend he was her real father! His untimely death also destroyed her, not only her,but the media claimed she killed *"The King of Hollywood" by him having to wait ever so long until she finally arrived on the set daily. I never believed this, *Gable lived a hard life & knew it. & along with certain sections of MGM's 1957's "Raintree County" (M-G-M) (***) was the 2st time vewers can easily see Monty's face disfigured from that '56 car accident in Bel-Air Malti says on either it's indoor sequences or outdoor one's, you can see how the filmmakers desperately tried to hide 1 profile. His very last was the flat/mediocre (**) 1966 "The Defector" (P.S. YOU BE THE JUDGE HERE THE OFFICIAL BEST ACTOR OSCAR NOIMINEES FOR 19861 & DID *GABLE BELONG? *Maximlian Schell in "Judgment at Nuremberg" (won), Spencer Tracy in "Nuremberg"-& unlike *Schell, was it's anchor though, Charles Boyer in "Fanny" Paul Newman in :"The Hustler" & Stuart Whitman, "The Mark" & remember also that yr was *Cagney's stunningly comedic work in "0ne, Two, Three")

    Kyle Griffin‏Verified account @kylegriffin1 The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has dropped a lawsuit against a lender that was allegedly charging interest rates up to 950%. The case had taken CFPB staffers years to establish—but Mick Mulvaney instructed staffers to drop the suit, NPR reports. https://www.npr.org/2018/02/12/584980698/trump-administration-to-defang-consumer-protection-watchdog

  9. Johnny Rocco vs. Cody Jarrett....

    May have written this pt before, just in case when on the Warner Bros. VIP tour-=(it's just a fancy handle & your not treated as any VIP though) However, my 1 trip to the Burbank Studio-(again, finest tour left in all of Tinsel-Town) but it helps if you are a classic cinema fan. My pal Ron, now 57 is not very much into that era so did not love it as much as this fan did. (TRIVIA: Original Warners used to be located in mid Hollywood, now for yrs KTLA TV. Many classics were still filmed at that fmr locale though, including "P. Enemy" Then they moved up to Burbank where the vast majority of studios are located.) & as I've noted many times it's museum is to me woirth price of admission. back then it was different though (November 1999) in which it's focus was memorabilia, costumes-NATALIE'S clothes from "Rebel..." "Great Race" "Gypsy" were on display, among many other jazz in this museum Even had miniature submarine & more from her "GR"BUT, now when I look it up it's about 85 to 90% "DK" cars & memorabilia? Among items most stood out was a very, very elderly guard that worked there since the 1930;'s & there are great monitors everywhere in this place, showing footage of *"Casablanca" "Public Enemy" "M. Falcon" "Treasure Sierra Madre" "Key Largo" "Splendor in the Grass" & many more & I told my pal *Cagney himself in most interviews said they used actual bullets during the earliest days. Welp, this old guard butted in & said they used "Scribbs" instead. But before the museum 2nd floor, another somewhat older gent said he knew Edward G. & others & kibda' liked him, see besides Edward G., really being a milqtoast he was also widely known as being rather snobby. I had to keep up with fans opn our tour cart, but wanted to ask if he ever met NATALIE, *CAGNEY & maybe even *BOGFEY-(though he died many yrs prior) They did have *"Casablana's" legendary piano though. Much other things were under glass, of course "The Falcon" like Dorothy's Ruby Slippers turns up all over the world though? FOMNASL NOTE: Kida sadly there was a huge rm in museum dedicated to TV's David Wolper, not 1 sole even went inside) Like Debbie Reynolds literally nagged scum Kirk Kirkorian about saving all 200 acres of M-G-M & typically,. he was nmo moviefan & said NO to her, she did purchase lots from his Metro-Goldwyn-Matyer auction in 1969/71 Trying to tell this....MGM could be another "Disneyland" Sadly, after taking her auction things to her Vegas show it & she BOMBED though THANK YOU

  13. Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Richard W. Painter‏ @RWPUSA So is her solution a law saying that “insane monsters” cannot buy assault weapons, but everybody else can? And how does her “insane monster” test work? Idiocy. Perhaps the MAGA hat is a giveaway, but there are at least some people with MAGA hats who aren’t both insane and a monster. Right?

  22. Pregnancy in classic movies

    Your post makes me think of The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, in which Betty Hutton seems to have a night consisting mostly of dancing with soldiers, and one of them says something about getting married, and she screams the word "MARRIED!!??", and it echoes like a hundred times, and then poof! she's pregnant. It was apparently very important to the filmmakers and perhaps the censors that no sex in this film took place outside of marriage. Like any **** soldier on his final night of leave was going to waste valuable minutes or hours getting married to a girl he never intends to see again .... Edit: Oops, should have known that word wouldn't be allowed. Okay, think "thorny" and take away the "t".

    Beau Willimon‏Verified account @BeauWillimon We need commitments from ALL politicians, at every level, to #refuseNRAmoney. Those who continue to take @NRA money need to be voted out of office. The @NRA has one goal - to increase gun sale profits. The 2nd amendment stuff is just a smokescreen for powerful corporate special interests. The @NRA’s influence comes down to money. Impure and simple. We need show that their money is toxic. That’s how we remove their influence in government and move towaed sensible gun reform.
  27. One of a Kind Movies

    I saw 9 in the theater. I don't want to give away plot details, but for an animated film, which presumably largely draws in a crowd of kids, it has an incredibly dark premise, especially if you're a human being (which I think applies to most of us)! I think The Matrix was pretty unique in the way it opens up with one perception of what reality is and then slowly lets us know what reality really is, then establishes the rules for how things work in the Matrix through the eyes of Neo. The movie also plays with our expectations in fun ways - when Neo accepts his destiny, suddenly the dark forces that have been menacing him the whole movie aren't so menacing anymore. And it's surely the most influential film in the last 20 years regarding the depiction of fight scenes in movies. I mean, my God, virtually every action movie made since The Matrix uses that fast-then-slow-then-fast-again dynamic in its fight scenes.
