  1. Hello! Would it be possible for you to answer my questionnaire on Women in Film Noir? It is important for my survey for my dissertation. Here is the link to the questionnaire. https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_5BlMQW5yZhFJZwF My professor coordinator is also a television producer and he wants me to write a book on this subject of film noir, as soon as I get my Master's Degree in a few months. I need as many respondents as possible. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. And please give the link also to other people you might know and who have seen films noirs. You will get to know the results as soon as the survey comes to an end. And what is important - your identity is kept anonymous, and filling out the questionnaire won't take you more than 15 minutes. Thank you very much!

    RAMBLES Part II

    Well, I bought an extraordinary copy from England, where the film is sold on DVD. It was released this year, in February. Check it on amazon.co.uk. The version I have is 79 minutes long (2 minutes longer than the official one, because it has 2 extra-sequences). It comes from the Rohauer Collection. The quality of the picture and sound is great. I found yesterday on imdb.com two excerpts from the script of the film, from scenes which no longer exist in the actual version. The first one comes from Madeleine's monologue by the end of the film, when she is arrested, and the second one comes from a romantic scene between her and the Baron, with kiss and all... I don't know if we could ever find these deleted scenes... Madeleine Goddard: [Locked in her stateroom on board ship] A spy... a life I never wanted. And now it's over. Finished and done. So sleepy... Baron Karl Von Marwitz: So our pretty little dressmaker is a spy! What will people say, an officer of the Kaiser like me and a woman like you, Madeline? Madeleine Goddard: [smiling] They'll say, the poor girl couldn't help herself. Baron Karl Von Marwitz: [serious] One false move could mean death for both of us. But death is nothing to what I feel for you. [They kiss]

    RAMBLES Part II

    And here is a bonus: a splendid, perfect close-up of Vivien (I think here she is more beautiful than in any other film). The embrace... As far as I know, Vivien is the only co-star that Conrad ever really kissed on screen, in the talkies, at least. He never really kissed his leading ladies (I suppose he didn't like it). But here, it looks like he wanted to give Vivien a little kiss. Edited by: Monik on Sep 9, 2010 2:56 AM

    RAMBLES Part II

    Connie and Viv - one of my favourite couples! Did anyone notice that this romantic scene from the photo doesn't exist anymore in the film?
  7. And here are some photos from my favourite scene. This is the only movie of Conrad Veidt (and I've seen quite a lot of them) in which he is really kissing his co-star. Of course, she is Vivien Leigh. It would be nice to find the complete version of this interesting movie, which is longer than 76 minutes. There is a version of 90 minutes, which was broadcast on TV at the beginning of the 90's.
  8. Here are some other very nice photos of the two great actors together. Edited by: Monik on Jun 26, 2010 11:55 AM

  10. I would like to devote a special thread to one of my favourite Vivien Leigh movies, Dark Journey (1937), in which she co-stars with the one and only Conrad Veidt.

    A tribute to Yul Brynner

    MissGoddess, I would like to know your opinion-Is the album Yul Brynner photographer a good one? I want to buy it and I want to know for sure if it has some interesting photos. Are there any photos of Yul and Deborah together, or of Yul alone?

    A tribute to Yul Brynner

    I would like to know something: Is it worth buying the album "Yul Brynner photographer"? Does it contain interesting photos? I would like to know if there are any nice portraits of Yul and Deborah together or photos of Yul.

    The Journey (1959)

    I consider these 3 pictures as parts of the same deleted scene. Look at the way he is holding her-the Major is very passional. The other 2 pictures are reproductions of the photos from the same set. If you want to watch the entire film, you could find it on youtube.

    A tribute to Deborah Kerr

    Today it would have been Deborah's 87th birthday, so I made this in her memory.
