    Home Before Dark

    Seems like forever since I've had the privilege of seeing this movie. Thank you TCM! I must admit tho I get the title mixed up with The Dark at the Top of the Stairs.

    Tonight on the I.D. (Investigation Discovery) channel at 10PM James Ellroy's program will include his take on Lana/Johnny affair and murder. Cheryl Crane will be interviewed. Sorry if this info has already been posted...

    Mongo, I'm so glad you brought up Kathy-O. Love that movie, it was intelligent and very well acted including Jan Sterling and Mary (sorry) "Fickett?" Please air it TCM!

    Thanks, as always, for the Hollywood polo pic. We occasionally would trek out to Pacific Palisades to Will Rogers' place and watch the polo games...for free. I wonder if you can still do that.

    Do You Know Me?

    Thanks... I was born in San Francisco in 1925. During WWII I served in the Navy and also managed to attend the Actor's Studio. After that I was good enough at acting to appear in several plays on Broadway. I also played small to medium supporting roles in the movies. Two of the films were blockbuster and even tho the parts were smallish, the roles were pivotal to the movie. Later on television discovered me and I was cast in a tv series that's still considered a classic. Who am I?

    No, I'm not Charles. Two hints: I'm a big guy and I played a judge on I Love Lucy.

    Do You Know Me? II: 1900 - 1970

    Thanks, Lana... I'm a character actor with a commanding voice and the body to go with it. I'm usually cast as an authority figure. I can look menacing if the role calls for it, or just the opposite, a kindly Pa or good guy cop. I'm delighted to say I've been in many classic movies of the 40's. Who am I?

    Could you be Sidney Poitier?

    Thanks Lana... I was typecast as a society snob which my background lent credence to. I hope I'm anything but. Born in Boston in 1934, my American ancestors go back to the 1600's. I had showy roles in two well-received block busters which put me on the map. I also did episodic tv. Now I write a column and have authored (and got published) some books of fiction. Who am I?
