    Absolutely. He had a marvelous, distinctive voice.

    Loved this guy. He was a great addition to any film he was in, despite the size of the part!

    TCM has a new owner

    TCM is already running commercials!! I laugh every time they say: "We are commercial-free." What about: "Join TCM BackLot." "Join TCM Wine Club." "Buy DVDS, books, etc." What is amusing is, if you have any old recording of TCM films from, say, 5 years ago, you realize the breaks between films were generally filled with film-related stuff, such as interviews, shorts, etc. Now the breaks are longer and they are selling TCM programs and products ad nauseum.

    Starring John Boles March 4

    He did another Shirley Temple film, The Littlest Rebel, in 1935 as well.
  7. Hey, I may be the only one but I am excited about TCM giving a small tip of the hat to John Boles. His acting style was "of its time" but he always put in a fine and believable performance. And, I recently found out that he was a fine singer, too.
  8. These are some of my favorite portrayals ever. (Bette Davis in Baby Jane excepted!)

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    OK. Clearly I was under-caffeinated when I posted! It has been corrected.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    Another "middle-aged man sleeping with a teenager" plot? Doesn't Woody have anything but art imitating life in his repertoire?

    OK, I'm back(...and where I've been)

    So very, very sorry to hear about the death of your wife. I can't even imagine how difficult that is. Hang in there. Lydecker

    Glenda Farrell as SOTM November 2018

    Nor is there anything "wrong" (or less laudable) in working consistently for decades and handing in stellar performances on a consistent basis. I'm going to check out his intros tonight and see if he is any more enthusiastic about Glenda. So far, he's really bugging me . . .
