    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 . . .

    Glenda Farrell as SOTM November 2018

    Not getting the sense that Dave Karger is exactly thrilled about Glenda Farrell being SOTM. Keeps saying things like: "Well, even after she left WB, she was still only getting SUPPORTING ROLES!" (Oh, for shame!) His lack of enthusiasm about her is really annoying. Ben or Alicia Malone would probably been better choices to host her segments it seems.
  6. Forgot about that one. Love it!
  7. Pretty much all of my favorites are here. How about you? https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/entertainment/best-movie-dance-scenes/?utm_term=.a8484d8431b3

    Glenda Farrell finally gets her due.

    Slight correction needed on this article: "Farrell is the only member of the acting profession whose grave is located in the cemetery of the United States Medical Academy." Should be: United States Military Academy.

    I am over the moon about Glenda Farrell as SOTM in November. Though I have seen 99% of what she has done, I'll be recording all month.

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    I think another problem with January/Kathryn Grayson is that it comes directly on the heels of Dick Powell as December SOTM. While Dick Powell did other genres there is an abundance of his early musicals in December (wishing ONE MORE TIME that Warren William had gotten the December SOTM nod!) and a shift in emphasis away from musicals would have seemed appropriate for January.

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    Hey, I worship Gershwin. But, Gershwin is about as far from Jeannette MacDonald & Kathryn Grayson "over the top" operatics as it gets. Now that I think of it, Porgy & Bess is probably the rare "opera" that I do enjoy, completely due to the Gershwin genius. No "Indian Love Call" in sight!

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    I agree that if she had done something other than musicals those of us who are not too thrilled about her January SOTM designation would be happier. The only non-musicals I can find in her filmography are Andy Hardy's Private Secretary (the MGM "try out" series for ingenues!) and The Vanishing Virginian.

    Not musicals, per se (though I admit it is not my favorite genre.) In my case, "operatic-style" musicals make me cringe. They just come off as too silly to me.

    I have nightmares thinking about a Kathryn Grayson/Jeannette MacDonald Film Festival with the two of them warbling away ad nauseum.

    I agree. Horrible choice!!! And they still can't designate George Sanders, Joan Bennett or Joan Blondell??????
