    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    He's behind Cruz in the polls so he needs every nickel. It's a tight race and who knows what voter suppression tactics Republicans are plotting.

    Hate mail from neighbor Stephen King?

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    This is an old Republican chestnut that keeps getting trotted out from time to time. Anybody who still believes it is an idiot.

    How about 3 rounds of beers?
  5. Maybe but technically she was correct about her ancestry. Please remember back in the day if a person had "one drop" of Negro blood they were considered Black. Now it would be nice if Trump coughed up the million bucks he promised to the charity of her choice (which he denies making but it's on tape) and both of them shut up about it.

    Ileana Douglas is Melvyn Douglas' Granddaughter?!!?

    I'm not sure what you mean by the way Carol and Illeana were lit but I'll check it out next time. Yes to the first part of your post. I am in total agreement. Way too much about Carol and her TV show and her lousy performance in THE FRONT PAGE. To the guest stars: it's not totally all about you. Keep your ego in check for a few moments and please focus on the movies being presented and who made them and why you like them.

    Eddie said Joan and Steve Cochran may have had a dressing room dalliance maybe to make Vincent Sherman jealous. Shame on Joan if she didn't - Steve was HOT! On a superficial note I like the longer hair on Joan, too. I don't know what it was about post-war hairdos around 1950 but a lot of actresses cut their longish locks around that time. On another superficial note, I liked Joan in her swimsuit and cover-up and I definitely liked Steve in his swimwear. I looked up the actress who played David Brian's wife. Edith Evanson also played the housekeeper in ROPE. Serena Royle as Joan's "guide" Patricia Longworth was an interesting role. Was there more going on there? I could see her showing Joan the ropes on how to be a society dame but then she never leaves. Kent Smith was a nice looking guy and decent actor and quite good in this role (he is in CAT PEOPLE, too), as everybody was (great casting). He sort of reminds me of Bruce Bennett - a serviceable, dependable actor. I liked David Brian. I remember him from INTRUDER IN THE DUST. Quite the contrast. Joan ran the gamut in THE DAMNED DON'T CRY. There's the struggling housewife/mother Joan, then Joan working and "modeling" to try to get ahead and then Joan going full-blown with the rich lifestyle and the men. I liked it.

    He ain't exactly June Allyson or Edward Arnold, but to each his own. (Sorry; I couldn't resist.) ?

    Have you ever seen this show? No one kicks this guy out of bed. ?

    I've never seen THE DAMNED DON'T CRY and so I'm looking forward to maximum Joan Crawford and Eddie's comments.

    I LOVE Melvyn in NINOTCHKA. He's perfect and it's one of my favorite Melvyn Douglas performances. He was so good in comedies in his younger years and dramas later on. Irene and Greta were lucky ladies.

    I was surprised Carol Burnett didn't know that Carole Lombard and William Powell used to be married. She's such a fan of old movies and she said she was named after Carole Lombard; I thought that was something she would know but seemed genuinely surprised when Illeana mentioned it before MY MAN GODFREY. As for Illeana's grandfather the great Melvyn Douglas, I love him in THEODORA GOES WILD. He had the funniest lines. Of course, Irene Dunne was great. I've seen THEODORA a couple of times but it had been awhile. I think it's a wonderful, delightful movie.

    And Nixon called her "The Pink Lady."

    From what I read she had surgeries which resulted in nerves being cut around her upper lip. I also read that she did put tissue inside her upper lip and co-stars could tell during kissing scenes. She was very self conscious about her looks. It's sad that she felt this way.

    I think the paralysis of her upper lip she had from plastic surgery probably affected the way she spoke.
