    For $200, she portrayed a debutante in England, yet all along she had a horrible problem w/anorexia. Or so said her husband, a big-name pop singer a la Paul Anka, all taking place in the '50s.

    "The Girl" (2012)

    I loved it. Joe, this was bound to happen. Tippi Hedren has her case, let's not deny her that. The actor who played Hitchcock, see you at the Emmys! But at the end of the day, Hitchcock is beyond caricature. HBO's movie was quite a ride.

    Constance Bennett Star of the Month

    Let's call 5pm Tuesdays in November Cocktail Hour, how's 'bout it? If I had bias satin, I'd wear it.
  4. I see Leslie Howard. In polo togs. Ok, now love polo. Did he play golf too?

    Kay Francis day What a delight!

    AndyM108: Boy, do I agree! Who knew that movie STRANDED? It was so good, Kay and George Brent, and it's going along, and we're watching all the interplay, and the subplot w/her new roommate, and then it dawns on you as you're watching: Hey, aren't they building the Golden Gate Bridge behind all the action? And you look at the release year, and then you're really into it! How about that for background? I happen to live in Northern California, so I guess I couldn't help notice the history going on in the background there, but it weally was a wery good movie. Kay sure stood her ground!
  6. How Come My Message doesn't come on right away, after I post it to the thread? Is there a certain time period in which posted responses will view? Thanks.

    Kay Francis day What a delight!

    I love our Miss Kay. What a treat, all day w/Kay. Yay! Well, here's the deal: no TROUBLE IN PARADISE, so I had to whip that out of my own taping and put that on during one of her slow ones; but it was ok. She looked best in Travis Banton at Paramount. Loved the one where George Brent is building the Golden Gate Bridge, and she has to stand up to him for her own career. Love you, Kay Francis!

    Phyllis Diller has died

    Do you mean of "If You're Going To San Francisco?" fame, that Scott McKenzie? Why are they all dying, didn't they stay 18 somewhere, 'way back when? Gosh, I think I'll always like best about Phyllis Diller, her go-go boots. What a look she took on, right? That's show biz.

    Little Women.... wonderful

    I completely agree w/you, Fred, and kudos your research! And how about that Douglas Montgomery? Remember last time you saw him was opposite Marion Davies in a really good comedy, whose title, of course, I've forgotten.

    Phyllis Diller has died

    You know, she was a copywriter at an ad agency in San Francisco (where I'm from) during the early '60s, and there she began her stand-up. I'll never forget one of her funniest lines, to me, which I saw her perform during that time period, on Mike Douglas or somewhere, when I was twelve, and it went, "You know, yesterday, I separated my whites, and put in my white sheets, and they came out bleached yellow. Bleached yellow." I howled; I guess I knew from laundering then, coming from a big family and all. She was amazing, when you think on it. The hair, the get-up, the schtick. Nothing, no one like it. Remember later in the '60s, the go-go short boots, the pop-art tent dress, always w/the cigarette holder? God love her, right?

    The Circle

    To Gagman, Well, thanks for the knowledge, and I'll try to buy those you mentioned. And, Movie Madness, looking forward to THE CIRCLE again in October. Love anything Talmadge; have so much info on those sisters and their, and Buster Keaton's, time in Lake Tahoe and Nevada, c.'20s.
  12. Can't agree -- Franklin Pangborn, always anticipated. Love him, and love when he shows up in movies as that character actor you can't live without.

    The Great Eric Blore: Favorite Scenes

    Don't you sometimes watch a Fred and Ginger, and just hope that this is one w/Eric Blore in it? And then, as you get to know their films, which I adore, you switch them on, and just hope he's in it, or else it's just their dancing? Does anyone know what I mean? He's hilarious! I remember him in THE GOOD FAIRY, w/Margaret Sullivan, where he's playing some minister of the Austrian cabinet, and he's at a restaurant *** nightclub, and he goes to Frank Morgan, "Would you look, I've just come down a whole flock of them, and here's a whole lot of them more!", referring, as an inebriate, to the stairway on one side of the dance floor to the stairway opposite. I think it's his emphasis on syllables, and you find yourself, next day, imitating him, just to get your choppers going!
  14. I just finished a bio on Joan Blondell, and loved every page. She acted onstage following most of her movies, c.1940, through the rest of her life. What a trouper, what a life.

    Leslie Howard as SOTM in July 2012

    Well, I sure hope everyone enjoyed TCM's LH month. I personally loved the night that began w/PYGMALION, where we got to see SMILIN' THROUGH, and the next two. He was genuine, and loved acting, feeding off the actors. His voice could rock you, and even tho' not 16 for ROMEO AND JULIET, did he deliver, or what? Love your spirit for LH; it was quite an enjoyable month of Tuesdays. No date could roust me.
