    Warren Beatty: The Tough Guys

    Have you look at the trading card. He's sillouetted with a white collar and a brown gun. That's Actor Warren Beatty. We just saw Vivian Leigh in The Roman Spring Of Mrs' Stone. In all of 42 films, Beatty is one of the tough guys. Mobster, Romantic Lover, a Kid who saw a girl and Criminal King of all human vegas casino. A regular Bugsy Malone is TCM's Summer Under The Stars' Actor and a Tough Guy to follow him. Are you gonna tell us about Beatty? Here are a list of films. The Founainhead an oscarworthy, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Breaking Point,Operation Pacific, Bright Leaf, Three Secrets, Raton Pass, Diplomatic Courier, Washington Story, Something For The Birds, Your Woman, Stranger From Venus, A Face in A Crowd and Breakfast At Tiffany's. She had 3 strokes at 39, 3 walks and of course back on the set with oscars and emmys. Her name is Patricia Neal. And she died last night at a hospital at aged 84. An end of an era for an actress. That's why we're adding another Summer Under The Stars icon to say, we missed her dearly. That is why Summer Under The Stars remembers Patricia Neal on her passing. More Please.

    A Note about Ginny Sims

    The Film 'Brodaway Rhythym' made her the most singable star in the world. Although, George Murphy was axed from MGM musical he went on to other Movie project for RKO. For Ginny Sims was the last straw and Ginny Sims axed from MGM after just one film. She was back to Kay Kyser and to make more song before her depature from radio and records. Now Ginny Sims alone before Warner Bros ever do Night and Day. That was all she can make for Night and Day with Cary Grant and Alexis Smith. Now Ginny Sims left the studio and her recordings That could be sad. Edited by: tcmfanatic1 on Apr 21, 2010 9:26 PM

When their family got to the floor they heard the collapse when he suffered a heart attack and yesterday, the news was on and After a good night sleep we woke up monday morning when Robin Meade told about the death sunday march 17th of Peter Graves long gone too soon at 83. The one we saw was the 1951 film Stalag 17th. So what's the set aside of the loss of James Arness' son, the Mission: Impossible man. Goodbye Mr. Phelps and Goodbye, Mr. Graves. We also heard on thursday as I woke the next day, the friday passing of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone star Fess Parker. Actor, Singer, Congressman and Wine Owner. He has died in california of natural causes. His 23 films for morning and afternoon with you and nighttime with robert osborne and his tv series lasted most of his 84 years.
