  1. I remember reading the he was a huge fan of the Ann Sheridan film Come Next Spring.
  2. Both Kings Row and Peyton Place are great movies. I love to read Kings Row one day. I read Peyton Place years ago. I have seen certain episodes of the TV series but was young when it first ran. I also have watched the sequel Return To Peyton Place. I forget that Betty Field is in both films. Ann Sheridan was sensational in the film. Both ladies should have been nominated for an Academy Award. Makes you wonder if they ever remade these classics films today, would they still be allowed to use both novels candid plotlines. Politically incorrect today we are.

    I know some of these actresses made films in other eras, including the 30's, 40's and 50's and 60's but they still starred in some memorable film of the 70's. Bette Davis, Joan Blondell, Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, Ruth Gordon, Helen Hayes, Maureen Stapleton, Janet Leigh, Shelly Winters, Lee Remick, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Bennett, Barbara Harris, Janet Margolin, Carol Lynley, Myrna Loy, Sylvia Sidney, Lee Grant, Elsa Lanchester, Mildred Natwick and so many more.

    No it's not a Madeline Kahn thread, lol. But she rarely got bigger parts in the 80's and 90's but always stole she show. But she did star in some of the best comedy films of the 70's.

    Favorite Actresses of the 1970's

    I forgot such actresses like Liv Ullman, Valerie Perrine, Susan Sarandon, Veronica Cartwright, Bo Derek, Julie Andrews, Jenny Agutter, Linda Blair, Tatum O'Neal, Jodie Foster, Brooke Shields, Marguex Hemingway, Audrey Hepburn, Pam Grier, Diahann Carroll, Trish Van Devere, Sally Kellerman, Olivia Newton-John, Lily Tomlin, Jane Alexander and so many more.
  6. Cyndi Lauper has made 5 movies in her career so far. Vibes-1988, Life With Mikey-1993, The Opportunists-2000 and Here and There-2010. If you want to count The Goonies you can you only see her on TV singing the theme song. I heard she turned down roles like Little Shop or Horrors, Working Girl and Steel Magnolias. She so wanted to star in Sweeney Todd but didn't get the part. She would have been fabulous in that. She did win her emmy for acting on the classic sitcom Mad About You.
  7. Yes Madonna was the biggest female music star of the 80's and 90's, but to me she was so overly rated. She is a smart business woman and her label promoted her. There was much more better talented singers in the 80's Her biggest rival in the beginning was Cyndi Lauper. To this day some people say that Madonna blew Cyndi Lauper out of the water and it is so untrue. Cyndi is by far a much better singer and actress. Yes she hasn't had a hit song since 1989, but not because her music wasn't great. She fought all the time with her label to make her music and they would never promote her albums and tours. They didn't pay the radio stations or video stations to play her videos. She was actually blacklisted. The 2 were very similar in the early 80's. It was actually Cyndi who was the one to wear the underwear on the outside. I have been a fan of hers years before she releases "She's So Unusual " which by the way the Library of Congress just added the album to it's National Registry for preservation. Her career had been at a stand still for the last 2 decades commercial music success, but she is one award shy of an EGOT. She has won a Grammy, an Emmy and a Tony all she needs is an Oscar. Both were very essential role models for many female artists to follow. Madonna may be number 1 but Cyndi Lauper has a new cd coming in 2020 and I wish she could have her first number 1 album ever. But today both of these ladies will not get heavy rotation on the singles charts because today's kids don't want to hear women in the 40's, 50's and 60's singing pop songs and ballads. On a funny note Cyndi said she like to work with her on a remake of "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?". That would be great to see.

    should tcm consider airing TV fare?

    No TCM should only show films. They could make a sister channel called TCTV if they like. They have yet to show all those Paramount films before 1949.
  11. I saw him 2010 when he opened for Cyndi Lauper.
