  1. I thought Cooper was a good co-host Thur night. I enjoyed his low key sense of humor when discussing NETWORK and HIS GIRL FRIDAY.

    Clips of your favorite scenes

    Robert Donat was born on this day, March 18th, in 1905. I wish he had made more films. He had such a musical voice. I love this recording he made of him reciting poems from T.S. Elliot's "Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats."
  3. Not that my opinion means anything, but I think Miss Zegler has a very nice Broadway-style voice. I know the role of Maria is generally played by an opera trained soprano, but who says it must be? Thinking back to the film version of KISMET, as an example, Delores Gray did a fantastic job in the role of Lalume. She was not an opera trained mezzo soprano and the role was written for a mezzo (like Joan Diener, who originated the role on Broadway) but performed the songs in her own style, and was wonderful! Joan Diener as Lalume: Delores Gray as Lalume:

    Noir Alley

    Interesting. I got HIGH SIERRA on this week's Noir Alley ( in Northern CA.)

    Painfully inappropriate casting.

    I actually like Stewart's singing in "Easy To Love." It's like Audrey Hepburn's version of "Moon River", heartfelt and with a good sense of phrasing. I know most folks disagree, though. Even Jimmy said in THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT "The song was so good, even my singing couldn't ruin it!"

    I hope Ms Kahn gets a SUTS nod one of these days.

    Star centennial birthdays

    Me too! Most of the photos of him had him looking like the one in your post. I chose the one I did because he looks so handsome in it with his rarely seen smile.

    "Hawaii" in the history of film

    Yeah, I found the film a little uncomfortable to watch (Thanks to Mr. Von Sydow for that; he was wonderful.) It didn't take long to come to the conclusion that Julie Andrews' character was, at heart, the true minister. I wonder how folks viewed this film when it was originally in theaters.
  11. I like your lanyard with all the pins on it. I collect pins, too, but sadly I don't have any which are film related! 😕

    TCM Imports has a new host

    I've heard her introduce herself as "Ah-leash-ah." Both pronunciations are pretty.

    unsung lowlife

    Yeah, Chester was a little too comical in his expressions for my taste in enforcers.

    Stars that deserve discussion

    I'd like to add a lady's name who is almost always synonymous with a man's name: Marge Champion. As I write this, she is 99 years old. She hardly ever gets mentioned unless it is along with her 2nd husband, the wonderful Gower Champion. But Marge has had an entire career outside of her partnership with her famous ex-husband. She has been an actress, choreographer, author and lecturer. In her mid 90's, she appeared in a documentary about the golden age of film.
