    Do You Know Me?

    Yes and I was writing all that as you were writing it too. LOL And thank you for mentioning the work of the University of Kansas' and Kansas' own Pulitzer prize-winning playwright, William Inge. I know you appreciate his work because you've mentioned how much you enjoyed "Picnic", "Bus Stop" and "Splendor in the Grass" for which he won the Oscar for Best Screenplay. I shall return.

    A 20th Century Fox Retrospective Scrapbook: 1962

    I still think this is a good year. Lots of interesting titles. Quite a bit of diversity in terms of subject matter. Here's my Top 10: 1. HEMINGWAY'S ADVENTURES OF A YOUNG MAN. Zanuck liked doing adaptations of Hemingway works, and obviously his passion for such material was shared by other people at Fox. The cast is extraordinary. The sequence with Paul Newman is my favorite. And I think Jessica Tandy is very effective in her scenes. The cinematography is excellent. I love almost everything about this film. It's one I can watch over and over. 2. LISA. It's a beautifully made film with sincere performances by the leads. I was glad that Dolores Hart had a chance to introduce this film when she was a Guest Programmer on TCM a few years ago. 3. SATAN NEVER SLEEPS. Clifton Webb's movie swan song. He plays a frustrated priest to perfection. The film pushes the limits with regards to the production code. A murderous communist is forgiven by the church and turned into a loving family man. The whole thing is improbable but it contains truths about forgiveness and truths about how a church might bring about reform. Holden gives a poignant performance as a fellow priest. It's an uneven masterpiece, but I do like this film very much. 4. GIGOT. Jackie Gleason wants to be taken seriously as a lead in a movie, doing some comedy and drama (without dialogue). It's a unique film, directed by Gene Kelly of all people, and made in France. I think Gleason really believed in the character and that makes all the difference. 5. THE LONGEST DAY. I enjoyed it. But it's too long. And most of the roles seem like excuses to cram another big name into the cast. It needed to be simplified. 6. STATE FAIR. Pat Boone gives a winning performance in this remake. Ann-Margret is good too. Best thing is Alice Faye, returning to Fox after a 17 year strike against Zanuck. Boone convinced her to take the role and finally fulfill her contract (she had owed Fox one more movie ever since FALLEN ANGEL). 7. THE 300 SPARTANS. Richard Egan at his peak, in a larger than life historical epic with all the trimmings. Good supporting cast, capable direction by Rudolph Mate. 8. MADISON AVENUE. The third of four for Crain and Andrews. Eleanor Parker gives the best performance. 9. THE LION. Holden's work on this film caused him to develop an interest in wildlife preservation. 10. MR. HOBBS TAKES A VACATION. Good cast elevates material. But it could have been better.
