    Maybe you're thinking of NORTHWEST PASSAGE...?

    Which stars from the past would make it/fail today?

    I think Pierce Brosnan could do mystery comedies, like the type Powell did. I think Brosnan could also do roles that Basil Rathbone did, like Sherlock Holmes for instance. In fact, if we were to reverse the question and ask which stars from today would've made it in the past, I would put Pierce Brosnan at the top of the list. I think his style would've worked very well in the 30s and 40s.

    I don't think Astaire would make it today. He's not enough of a hunk. I think Gene Kelly would do fine today, because he worked in several genres and became a noted director.

    No, I think I'll pass. Not in the mood to share those thoughts with disrespectful posters who will attempt to trash what I write anyways. As I said, we're done with this.

    The Best Films of 1960-50th Anniversary

    I was waiting for this thread. Don't let us down...remember we need one for 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.

    I think I am going to exit this thread, because I cannot see any new ground being covered in it. Maybe I'll come back and post a few more times later if it takes on a new life...but I'm kind of done with it. I do know which films I have banned in my own home, and that is what counts. There are also films I have destroyed and thrown into the fire.

    Actors who only worked together twice

    During the *Margaret O'Brien* tribute yesterday, I noticed she appeared with several actors twice: with George Murphy in TENTH AVENUE ANGEL and BIG CITY with Butch Jenkins in OUR VINES HAVE TENDER GRAPES and BIG CITY with Danny Thomas in THE UNFINISHED DANCE and BIG CITY with Lionel Barrymore in DR. GILLESPIE'S CRIMINAL CASE and THREE WISE FOOLS with Marjorie Main in MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS and BAD BASCOMB and with June Allyson in MUSIC FOR MILLIONS and LITTLE WOMEN.

    Leave Her to Heaven

    Thanks for the explanation...I did not know that. However, I hardly consider Tierney's character to be on the same level as Queen Gertrude. She commits equally heinous deeds but we are missing the incest dimension.

    Reread that post to me. You will see that if you had deleted the last paragraph, it would've been completely fine. But you felt the need to get personal at the end and try to tell me what to do. That was unnecessary as far as I'm concerned.

    Unless it's just their shared Irish heritage. I love both of them. And I wish Rosie's film career hadn't tanked. I'm hoping she makes a comeback...she's an excellent character actress.

    I was fine with your post all the way till the final paragraph. I feel the last paragraph was unnecessary. You do not need to scold or browbeat a fellow poster that way. If you want there to be civil discussions related to the topic, then you need to stop dictating terms yourself. Now, as for the first part of your post...I am glad that you see how I am trying to get people to think. There definitely are no absolutes when it comes to freedoms in the United States. In many ways, it is not a free country. And the sooner people see that and see how it is reflected on film, the better IMO.

    You did not receive a reply from me because I don't trust you. And I do not have to acquiesce to your request if I choose not to do so. For you to infer anything else means that you are once again baiting and trying to stir up trouble. I would ask that you stop it. Somehow this thread did not get locked, and I would like to think there can still be civil, thoughtful discussion here. But there won't be if you keep throwing fuel on the fire.

    You did not come into this thread with your A-game. And now you have been benched.
