    Joan Crawford's French Banana Salad Recipe

    The recipe is actually swiped from a 1913 cookbook called "The Barton Cookbook" and is attributed to Mrs. A. P. Underwood. I wonder if some clever person in the MGM publicity department, when selecting this recipe on Joan's behalf, noticed the name of the woman who submitted the salad above this one decided Joan's should be called "French Banana Salad" to fancy it up.

    Bacall Was BORN For Penthouses!

    Personally, I think Bacall's penthouse in How to Marry a Millionaire trumps her digs in both Dark Passage and Young Man With a Horn. Her apartment in Designing Woman isn't too shabby either, if you like that sort of thing - particularly the coffee table that she always wanted but wouldn't marry Zachary Wilde to get. BTW - Dark Passage and Young Man With a Horn are indeed both from the same studio - both are Warner Brothers.

    The [b]Longer[/b] Road To Hollywood - 2011

    On Monday night I had the good fortune to see Angela Lansbury host an amazing tribute to Terrence McNally and the poor woman was (as she herself admitted) sick as a dog, but, being a trouper, she made the extraordinary effort to be there. Here's hoping she will have recovered enough to keep her engagement at the Manchurian screening on Saturday. If she is indeed able to be there, I hope everyone gives her an extra outpouring of appreciation for appearing when she's been under the weather. Also, I noticed that she has just been added to the Hollywood screenings, and will be there to present Gaslight. Lucky break for all of you west-coast folks.

    The [b]Longer[/b] Road To Hollywood - 2011

    I have my hot little tickets in my grubby little hands. Can't wait. Who else from these boards will be at the Manchurian screening in NYC? It might be nice to put some faces with message-board names at the screening.
  6. My mom, who would have been about 9 or 10 when she first saw The Wizard of Oz in 1939/40, once told me that she could never forget the sound of the "gasp" that came from the audience when the film changed from b/w to color. I'll bet for many children, that was the first time they had ever seen a color movie that wasn't a cartoon.

    Roles They Wish They HADN'T Rejected!

    Does this mean I shouldn't say aviatrix, executrix and Secretary of Statetrix anymore either?

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this Kyle. Manchurian Candidate is one of my all-time favorite movies, Angela Lansbury is my partner's favorite actress, and we live in NYC. This could not have worked out more perfectly for me, and I was thisclose to not even knowing about it until I saw your post. Thanks again.

    Kazoo movie???

    Thank you so much. I actually have that recorded from TCM from back when Kay Fwancis was Star of the Month, but never got around to watching it. My friend will be really pleased to not only know the title of the movie, but that I have it should she wish to see it again.

    Kazoo movie???

    Hey - Can anyone possibly help a friend of mine who just sent me this request? ... trying to remember the name of an old (black and white) movie about an ex con pianist/composer who returns home. His daughter ends up taking singing lessons from him and he starts a really cool kazoo band with the guys from the waterfront... sounds weird but I loved it a long time ago and can not remember the name or who was in it........ ring any bells ?
  12. I have the same general issue with 1965 that you have Tracey, but one of my all-time favorite movies is indeed from '65 - Julie Christie in Darling has always been a standout film for me.

    I need the name of a movie Please

    I think the movie you're thinking of is *FORBIDDEN* (1932) starring Barbara Stanwyck and Adolphe Menjou: "On a cruise to Cuba, Lulu Smith falls in love with Bob Grover. Back home, she breaks off the romance when he tells her he is married. Lulu has a baby, but doesn't tell Bob, who turns out to be a rising politician. She passes herself off as the baby's nanny. When Bob learns what is going on, he adopts the little girl, not telling his wife or anyone else where she came from. Lulu gets a job at a newspaper. Things get complicated when the editor gets the dirt on Grover, but also wants to marry Lulu." Read: [Hollywood Heyday|http://hollywoodheyday.blogspot.com/]
  15. Beth - I think COME BACK LITTLE SHEBA is a movie that you might like based on what you've mentioned so far. It's being broadcast on TCM on February 9th.
