  1. Your Three Favorite Actresses of All Time

    1. Jean Arthur 2. Olivia de Havilland 3. Myrna Loy
  2. Veronica Lake Fans

    One of her favorite movies for me is "Sullivan's Travels". I love the chemistry between her and Joel McCrea.
  3. Off Topic: Favorite Music?

    80's, and big band
  4. Errol Flynn Westerns

    YES! I LOVED the Adventures of Robin Hood as well. The scene where he climbs up the side of the tower she is in and comes in the window....after they talk she says goodbye to him at the window...they kiss......It is one of my all time favorite movie scenes. She looks soo pretty with her hair in a long braid and he is soooo handsome..the look on his face....ahhhhhhh. Another film they did together that I love is...Captain Blood. I just got done watching Dodge City and before the film started the host was saying Errol used to mess up the scenes with Olivia on purpose, so the director would say...CUT... and he would have to kiss her all over again LOL...I thought that was cute.
  5. Errol Flynn Westerns

    Dodge City is my favorite of all Flynn's westerns. The cast is fantastic. The chemistry between Errol and Olivia is magical.
  6. Question for the men.....

    Then that person( who is irritated) never TRULY loved the other to begin with. As I stated earlier, to love someone is to take the bad with the good. If these traits irritated this person from the get go, then it should have been discussed and dealt with at that time...not YEARS later. Problem is... some people seem to think the grass is always greener someplace else..or with someone else. As you stated, they become bored and want to look elsewhere so now all of a sudden decide to bring up these annoyances.
  7. Question for the men.....

    "I realize that, as a man, I'm essentially clueless about most things, but it completely bewilders me to find that something I've done for ten years is suddenly despicable." The "something I have done for 10 years suddenly despicable"...I think, a lot of the times, has more to do with the other person's feelings about or insights about themselves, rather than about you. You just happen to be the target who is getting the brunt of feelings and emotions the other person hasn't discovered a way to deal with yet. Like you stated...if you had these habits or traits for 10 years, how could they all of a sudden be sooo terrible and cause such problems..if they haven't up till now?? Doesn't make any sense. Maybe one explanation for this is... often times when two people meet they get so caught up in the romantic aspect that they often look through the prism of their OWN need at one another. So they might ignore certain characteristics they don't particularly care for and make that person( hoping to transform) that person into the ideal individual they want them to be. This is , as you stated disaster waiting to happen, because sooner or later a situation will arise and all this "make believe" will turn into a reality many aren't going to be willing, or able , to face. One of my favorite quotes about love is from from Ginger Rogers .." When two people love each other, they don't look at each other, they look in the same direction." To me, love is not a feeling, it is about commitment( weathering the many storms that are sure to come). Feelings can change, and it is wise to not put much faith in them.

  8. Question for the men.....

    I like your choices. Another character that comes to mind, in regards to your description of what attracts you to a woman, would be Kitty Foyle...brilliantly portrayed by Ginger Rogers. I find what you said, "willing to overlook my faults", interesting as I think too often times in relationships today people have a tendency to look at the other person through rose-colored glasses. They arent willing to accept, and love, the bad along with the good. In my opinion, to love someone is to love who they are( the person they are..as a whole)..not what they can do FOR you, or their appearance..or anything else. "Willing to overlook my faults"....loving you in spite of them. Dawn
  9. Question for the men.....

    What female character from a movie most reflects the qualities you look for in a woman?
  10. Question for the ladies . . .

    "If you want I'll lasso the moon for you. Then you can swallow it..and all the moonbeams will shoot out your ears..." Jimmy Stewart to Donna Reed in "Its a Wonderful Life".
  11. RIO BRAVO, or EL DORADO???

    For me it is DEFINANTLY Rio Bravo!! The cast is simply marvelous and play off each other soo well..the chemistry was wonderful. The scene where they are all in the jailhouse and Dean and Stumpy and Colorado are singing is one of the best scenes in any movie! Dean, and Colorados voices....smooth as silk. But my favorite scene in the movie is the one where Stumpy " plain enough, old cripples aint wanted"....comes to the rescue...Dont ya just want to HUG him to death! lol. That movie had it all. Dawn
  12. Any Gary Cooper Fans?

    Gary Cooper is one of my favorite actors! High Noon and Meet John Doe are two of my favs. of his. I loved the message in Meet John Doe, it is a shame it is such an underated film. The very last scene ( Empire State Building) is one of my all time favorites in any movie. " If its worth dying for its worth living for"..LOVE that line. Dawn
  13. I love this little known/under appreciated film of John Waynes. I think it is soo different than what we are used to seeing John in. Great plot line and nicely acted by a good supporting cast! I love the part where he is looking to the sky to hopefully see the rescue plane and he says " We must be awful hard to see down here"...and he has such an emotion look and sound to his voice...just a brillant snippet of acting. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045919/
