    Swithin, Thank You. Years ago MoMa had a screening of The Blue Veil during a retrospective, but other than that and it being on youtube ( I don't think it's still there and the copy was awful) the film is nowhere to be found) My mailbox is full, I'll clear out some messages Swithin wrote Les Tremayne was in Dream Wife with Eduard Franz

    Although not exactly a true spin-off, the actress appeared on a hit tv show playing the character she played in her series before the series I'm asking about began.

    Tyrone Power

    Here is a quote from TCM's page about the Court Jester > Basil Rathbone had studied fencing for many years and was considered one of the best in Hollywood. However, he was 64 years old when the film was shot and had to be doubled in some scenes by the famed fencing coach, Ralph Faulkner, who spoke highly of Kaye, calling him "a brilliant person, both mentally and physically." One scene called for Kaye to fence with Rathbone while pouring a glass of wine and drinking it, which was very difficult. Rathbone was simply unable to keep up the speed and so shots of Faulkner were edited in. > Basil Rathbone wrote about the experience in his autobiography, saying that he was shocked that after only a few weeks of training, "Danny Kaye could completely outfight me! Even granting the difference in our ages, Danny's reflexes were incredibly fast, and nothing had to be shown or explained to him a second time. I was talking to him once about this, and he told me (in effect) that his mind worked like a camera that took perfect pictures, and that he had a very keen sense of mime that could immediately translate the still picture into physical movement. Hear or see anything just once and he could imitate it without the slightest effort." _____________________________________________________________________ Rathbone certainly did praise Kaye's ability Sgt. so what's so terrible? Obviously Rathbone said it and meant it.

    Tyrone Power

    Why are you questioning a statement that Rathbone made about Power? Maybe he made the statement because that's what he (Rathbone believed) and nothing more than that. Oh well, maybe you and this Sgt. have the ability to go back in time and read Rathbone's mind LOL. Tom, you and I have been friends for a long time and other than this disagreement we have always agreed 100%, this time however, sorry buddy, I have to disagree with your thinking

    Tyrone Power

    If that comment about a vague recollection was aimed at my post I think it was basically confirmed by Tom writing " Power being a superior fencer to Flynn" said by Rathbone. As Tom stated Rathbone's motives in making that statement is a theory, nothing more. Since none of us were there, we can only go by the statement Rathbone made about Power's fencing ability and not speculate. One the one hand you object to paraphrasing a statement, but you're OK with theories as to why someone said such and such?

    Tyrone Power

    Tom, I think we've been around this block before. Aside from the dueling, Tyrone I think had a bigger range as an actor. Watch his performance in Nightmare Alley, he was superb. Nothing you say can change my mind about Power and I'm sure the same is true about how you feel about Errol. I doubt that was the reason Basil made the statement about Power and Flynn's dueling abilities. Basil was well respected and known to be a great at fencing.While it's true Tyrone was very well liked by fellow actors and Errol's reputation was not the best, Tyrone could stand on his acting abilities without his fine reputation of being a nice guy being a factor. Don't get me wrong, I think Errol was talented and very handsome and fun to watch but my heart belongs to Tyrone. Alice Faye said when Tyrone kissed her, she thought she died and went to heaven. I think I'd feel the same

    A few years back, Eddie Muller use to post here occassionally. A rude poster always had negative things to say about him, maybe that's why he hasn't returned.

    Tyrone Power

    The Razor's Edge is on my list as one of my 10 favorite films. Abandon Ship was a great film and Tyrone was wonderful in it. You need to see Nightmare Alley, it's one of his finest performances and Witness For the Prosecution ain't bad either LOL. If you want to see Tyrone in another fine performance, only this time with humor, watch the Mark of Zorro. He was a master swordsman. Basil Rathbone known to be the best swordsman in Hollywood, raved about Tyrone's ability with a sword.The Long Grey Line is another teriffic performance. He convincingly goes from a young man, to an elderly man. The Eddy Duchin Story also shows us how great and dedicated Tyrone was to his craft. He learned to play the piano for that film. Although he was dubbed, all the finger movements are his and that's no small feat, considering the quickness of hand needed to play Eddy Duchin's music. I love Tyrone Power, always have, he was a gorgeous, talented actor and always a pleasure to watch.

    For awhile, immediately following this film winning a bunch of Oscars, the studio had phone calls answered using the film's title placed in the studios name (the studio's name was kept, the film's title was injected into it) Film and the Studio ??
