    Yes, the character's name starts with "S".

    Handsome men who did not become movie stars

    I think that there are may be a few TCM posters who would **** a brick if they found out their boy Steve had a romance with James Dean. I can definitely see them in "Brokeback Mountain." Hurd Hatfield might have been directed to be sort of bland or "laid back" as you say in Dorian Gray. His face remains inexpressive, a blank canvas, so all those dark emotions appear on his portrait. His performance works in that film and George Sanders is perfect. I just love "Picture of Dorian Gray."

    I think it's worth it especially if you're into historical documentaries. It's good.

    Yes, our last living connection to the silent film era.

    Also, with the passing of Lassie Lou this past February, that leaves Baby Peggy as the only surviving silent movie star.

    Lassie Lou beat out her male competitors fair and square for the role. Interesting that a few of the characters were in blackface: Topsy, **** (rhymes with Rambo) and Quombo. The snowstorm ice floe sequence was pretty intense and reminiscent of WAY DOWN EAST. I felt bad for the dogs. Virginia Grey played Little Eva. A pretty decent film overall despite some racist bits but interesting piece of Hollywood history and some exciting scenes.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Another tidbit from Marina's emails with her Russian handler: remember when Trump was thinking about picking Romney for Secretary of State? Well, apparently the Russians didn't want him so they got their fake web sites going disparaging Romney and encouraging followers of the sites to let the Trump people know Romney was not a good choice. Lo and behold, Trump picks Rex Tillerson, whom Putin had given an award to for his oil deals with Exxon and Russia.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Marina Butina, the Russian babe arrested and denied bail, apparently had emailed her handler that she was none too happy having to sleep with her American target - I mean boyfriend. The unnamed idiot in the indictment (referred to as Person #1) is 56 year old Paul Erickson from South Dakota, a Republican power-broker wannabe. Marina is 29. No bail; she's a flight risk. If she reached the Russian embassy, or even got into one of that embassy's cars, it would be diplomatic immunity so no bail for Marina who will get to enjoy American hospitality in jail with three hots and a cot. Maybe her pals at the NRA will smuggle some weapons into jail and she can shoot her way out. As for Paul Erickson, he falls for a babe who, in reality, didn't care for him very much and I bet the Feds are looking at him, too. Stupid.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    NY Times is reporting that Trump was told on January 6, 2017, before the inauguration, that Putin was directly involved with Russian interference in our election. Numerous security people like FBI, CIA, NSA were there. They presented evidence like email correspondence. I bet one or more of these people talked to the Times after Trumps' Helsinki performance. They are striking back. They have had enough of Trump disparaging our intel people and embracing Putin. Now we know for certain Trump has been lying all this time, in case there were any doubts.

    Oops, Guess My Barbara Stanwyck Photo Was Deleted

    I don't think Harlow ever wore a bra.

    Oops, Guess My Barbara Stanwyck Photo Was Deleted

    I saw it and I thought it wasn't that racy; it was kind of artsy. She was just posing and not doing anything naughty. Anyway, I'm glad I got to see it before it was taken down and thank you for sharing. Barbara is my favorite actress.

    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    This grand daddy to the "A Star is Born" films is really good. Watch Constance Bennett nail her imitations of some of the stars of the day. Comedy and drama seamlessly blended.

    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    I've seen it and recommend it to fans of political history (like me 😊).

    Noir Alley

    TCM may not show much in the "grindhouse" genre (except some for Underground) but plenty of "pre-code" and "screwball". It's all film history along with musicals, horror, SF, war flicks, romances, historical dramas, comedies, etc.

    Eddie Muller's Humor

    Yes! Eddie and the whole Noir Alley series has been a great addition to TCM.
