    Dance, you dirty rats !

    I agree. The similarities between a tyrannical male dance director in the 30's and a heartless mobster leader are uncanny... I don't know about Sly and 42nd Street-seems like it could go one way or the other. I really would like to see the musical craze pop up again. Family entertainment is very essential these days with all of the garbage out there. Anyone hear any word on the possibility about a remake of "Guys and Dolls" with Nicole Kidman?

    Funniest Romantic Comedies

    I love anything with Judy Holliday: "You Should be so lucky" was a riot. Doris Day and Rock Hudson/Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn movies were the best. Also, "How to Steal a Million" was just hilarious. Audrey always did well in the romantic comedy bit I think. Also loved "Monkey Business" with Ginger Rogers and Cary Grant. They were always cute together.

    WORST MUSICALS EVER

    "The Dolly Sisters" was pretty awful, just annoying. "The Golden Girl" with Mitzi Gaynor just wasn't going anywhere...and though some people find it appealing in a child-like way, the musical "Lilli" with Leslie Caron and Mel Ferrer just weirded me out. ps I agree with Patful-"The Young Girls of Rochefort" was a dive, and Gene Kelly is my favorite. "Grease Two" "The Blue Bird" were very dull. However, for some strange reason, I kind of like Xanadu; there were some really bizarre parts, I'll admit, but I bet if they were to re-make it today, or make a broadway show of it, the story has potential. Someone just seemed to cut corners, that's all.

    Cyd Charisse

    Though there have been threads about her, I'd like to hear new or revised input on one of the greatest dancers in America...Cyd Charisse. Being a dancer myself, I always screen "dance" type movies and study the dancers, moves, rythms, choreography, etc. I've admired Ms. Charisse since I was 14 at which time I wrote her a letter and was stunned and starstruck when I received a response. She really was one of the most adroit and graceful dancers I've ever seen. Did you know that style of dance that seems to be her "own" (where she never really stops moving) comes from her first husbancd, Nico Charisse's technique? Just a little trivia. God blessed her with the gift of dance and she certainly made the most of it. While, of course, Gene Kelly is my absolute favorite dancing partner for anyone, I'd say Cyd looked and danced better with Fred Astaire; she just seemed to tall and high brow for our blue collar Gene. Your input?

    TCM's New Osborne - Mankiewicz Odd Couple Promo

    Though I prefer Osbourne to Mankiewicz, I'd like to see a woman hosting during the daytime.

    Favorite Actors/Actresses

    Haven't been on in a while... I love James Dean, James Stewart, Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, and especially Gene Kelly! William Holden, Cary Grant, Lawrence Olivier, Van Johnson are great as well. As far as actresses go, Audrey Hepburn will always be my favorite. If I could look like anyone, I've always said it would be her. Natalie Wood, Vivien Leigh, Ingrid Bergman, and Kate Hepburn are other favorites.
