    Who is the woman in The Women

    Phyllis Povah (July 21, 1893 ? August 7, 1975) was an American actress, who made numerous appearances on stage and a few films. Povah made her Broadway theatre debut in Mr. Pim Passes By in 1921 and acted in minor roles in several productions over the next two decades. She achieved a notable success in a featured role in the stage production of The Women, and the play ran for 18 months, from 1936 until 1938. When a film version was planned, Povah and Marjorie Main were the only members of the cast who were chosen to reprise their roles in the film which was released in 1939. (The film was directed by George Cukor). The film was a success, but Povah continued to work steadily in theatre, and appeared in the film Let's Face It (1943) with Bob Hope and Betty Hutton. Dear Ruth, in which Povah starred with John Dall and Virginia Gilmore played on Broadway from 1944 until 1946, and provided her with a substantial role and her biggest success during the 1940s. She made two films in 1952, The Marrying Kind with Judy Holliday and Aldo Ray, and Pat and Mike with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, both directed by George Cukor. Her final Broadway role was in Anniversary Waltz with MacDonald Carey and Kitty Carlisle in 1954 and 1955. The film version, retitled Happy Anniversary (1959) and costarring David Niven and Mitzi Gaynor, was her final film. She died from a heart attack in New York City.

    Good Story For Movie?

    I always thought this Sports Illustrated article would make a great movie. It's about a black coach hired to coach Amish kids and his battle with cancer. http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1021912/index.htm

    Is there a sight like IMDB for music? Look up an album to see who played on it etc. It seems everyone here has so much knowledge.

    Movie Title Needed

    In "Come Live with Me" I forgot to mention the way Stewart and Lamarr meet. Stewart is in diner waiting for a stool to open up to do the last dime/hot water ketchup thing. Lamarr is there too (I can't remember why - fleeing a nice guy immigration agent?). The two get into the tussle over a newly open stool at the counter. Stewart placed his dime on the counter as they are arguing and the waiter takes it thinking it's a tip from the guy who just left the stool. This illustrates to Lamarr that this guy is down and out thus setting up the arrangement.

    Come Live With Me: James Stewart and Hedy Lamar Illegal immigrant and showgirl Johnny Jones (Lamar) is due to be deported from the USA, her only hope is to get married, but her rich publisher boyfriend Barton Kendrick (Ian Hunter) is already married! She meets down-on-his-luck author, Bill Smith (Stewart), and proposes a marriage of convenience in order to remain in the country. Kendrick (through Jones) offers pay for Smith's room and expenses (Smith will only accept payment to the penny and nothing more) so he can have the freedom to write. Smith write about his arrangement in a story and sends it to publisher Kendrick (not knowing he's money behind Jones. Kendericks wife (Verree Teasdale) gets hold of the manuscript first and loves it.
