  1. Interesting point of view that I had not really thought about. I felt that her aunt had a romanticized view of marriage and, perhaps because she was a somewhat younger widow,or because she and Morris had become social buddies, or perhaps because of the place in time in which the story took place and considering how timid her niece was, she felt that Morris was Catherine's only chance at happiness, whether he truly loved her or otherwise.
  2. Dorothy Malone (1925-2018)

    She was very good as Lon Chaney's first wife in Man Of A Thousand Faces. RIP.
  3. Happy Birthday to...

    Also, Happy Birthday today to Tippi Hedren!- 88
  4. Happy Birthday to...

    "A perfect game is rare. A no-hit game against the Yankees is even rarer."
  5. Hate, Detest, Despise and Abhor Movies

    I love it, too, so there are at least two of us!
  6. In my book, Up and Toy Story 3 are as good as any other films nominated in those years.
  7. Happy Birthday to...

    Also, Happy Birthday today to: James Earl Jones- 87 Jim Carrey- 56
  8. I actually like the larger number of nominated films. I don't have a specific reason as to why, but I just like it.
  9. The James Earl Jones Of His Time

    The first time I saw Ingram was as the giant genie in The Thief Of Baghdad. I loved his resounding voice. He was also wonderful in The Talk Of The Town in a lesser and subdued role.
  10. What films would you like featured on Silent Sundays?

    The Hands Of Orloc was played once, but I believe it was actually in the prime time spot. Maybe SUTS with the spotlight on Conrad Veidt, if I'm remembering correctly.
  11. Happy Birthday to...

    Also, Happy Birthday today to: Orlando Bloom- 41 Patrick Dempsey- 52
  12. Charles Boyer as SOTM January 2018

    I'm guilty of this as well. It will really bother me that I feel so differently about films or performances which many years ago I considered wonderful. I also do this with music, but I think most people do also, to varying extents.
  13. Great One-Liners

    "What's a..Yoot?" (How's that for a segue to a great one liner?)
  14. Charles Boyer is Gaslight. Ingrid should have used that knife while she had it in her hand!
  15. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    I really enjoy their films together. Rita just looked right for Fred. I believe she once said that the only films she was proud of were the the two she made with Fred. Fred, too, had many compliments for Rita in his autobiography.
  16. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    Darn it! I almost put four M's in there, but was sure that was wrong!
  17. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    She was great, wasn't she? They made a great team despite of their age differences, probably because they both gave their dancing a character and personality. My favorite of their duets is the routine they performed to the song "Night Train." Very funny ending! I loved her in IAMMMW, too. She was also good in Cape Fear.
  18. Who would you marry?

    When I was a kid, I wanted to marry Robert Donat. I was crushed when my mom told me he had been dead for nearly 20 years ( I was somewhat naive and didn't know the films I was watching were old.) Now, I would say Edward G. Robinson. He was kind, mild mannered, private, artistic, smart and went to great lengths for his country ( which many other actors did, as well.) By all accounts, he also seemed like a family man.
  19. Favorite film soundtracks or film songs

    I had never seen the Lana Turner version of Madame X until December when she was SOTM. I don't care for soap opera films, but the music was wonderful. The opening theme especially was lovely.
  20. Happy Birthday to...

    Also, Happy Birthday to the very funny Rowan Atkinson- 63
  21. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    I don't get any of those channels- I guess that would explain why I don't know of any that show those specials!
  22. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    I don't know of any channels that aire classic TV specials ( I'm not saying they don't exist, just that I don't know of any.) I mentioned those three people specifically because they are film legends. I think it would be fun to see their TV specials, especially if it was part of the SOTM salute. It was interesting to see the James Dean TV programs a few months back.
  23. It's nice to see GWTW and Snow White can still make the top 10 list after all of these years.
  24. a sure way for tcm to boost their ratings....

    I would love to see classic TV specials on TCM, such as Fred Astaire's four variety specials with Barrie Chase, or Mitzi Gaynor's specials, or Bing Crosby's specials, etc.
  25. Charles Boyer as SOTM January 2018

    Boyer was an actor I never really warmed up to and thought was a little one- dimentional. Then, when I saw his later films ( Fanny, Barefoot In The Park, The Madwoman Of Chaillot,etc.) I began to view him differently and when re-watching his films I previously didn't care for, started to like him. My favorite is a radio recording I have of him and Madeline Carrol performing The Ghost And Mrs. Muir.
