    Please suggest Books I might enjoy!

    Hi Eugenia! So glad you enjoyed Kobal's book. I was in London a few years back and met a man who actually knew John Kobal, who was Canadian. This man owned the only classic movie book shop I have ever seen. It was so incredibly cool. Another book I would like to recommend highly was purchased in London. The book is *Being and Becoming: Myrna Loy* by James Kostilibas-Davis. It was written in the late 1980s and came out around the time she received her Kennedy Center Honors tribute. A lovely read indeed!

    I highly recommend *People Wll Talk* by John Kobal. It is wonderful. Also, the Milton Berle bio is great...

    Brush With Fame

    When I was 13 (circa 1979), my family and I went to NYC for the day. As we strolled through the lobby of the Plaza Hotel, I saw Red Skelton! I knew who he was and he spoke to me and was very sweet. One of the true greats.... A real thrill I will always cherish. Also, I met Anne Francis in the early 2000s. Not the friendliest of people. However, I did get to have a short telephone conversation that same week with the wonderful Glenn Ford....

    *CANDIDS* 2

    Oscar wrote a beautiful, hauntingly romantic called song called "Blame It On My Youth" I would just to love read a book by one of Mr. Levant's daughters about life with him. He was a tortured, but witty and talented man. Thank you, Joe, for the great picture that we are not going to see anywhere else... Mary

    reused movie sets

    Did you ever notice that the facade of Mildred's Restaurant in *Mildred Pierce* and the facade of the Yale party in *Roughly Speaking* (both 1945 Warner Bros. with Jack Carson) are one and the same? Guess Jack Warner wanted to economize a bit....

    Home Before Dark

    You are so right about this movie! Simmons give such a poignant and touching performance. I had never seen this movie before and could not tear myself away from watching it. Absolutely riveting. And the scene at the dinner party breaks your heart....I loved at the end when she finally leaves and tells her husband and stepfamily to get out of her house. -- Mary Edited by: moviesrgr8 on Apr 12, 2011 8:15 AM

    Dear Heart Glen Ford and Geraldine Fitzgerald

    Geraldine Page was the leading lady in this film, not Geraldine Fitzgerald. Miss Fitzgerald would have been a bit long in the tooth by 1964 to play against Glenn Ford.

    Leonard Maltin preCode ratings good?

    Leonard only rates *The Shawshank Redemption* as 2 and 1.2 stars!!!
