  1. >Caan has had a reputation for being blunt. And thus was probably why Coppola thought he'd be absolutely perfect as Sonny Corleone...and which he was, of course.

    >My attention wanders until Eleanor starts dancing (which there isnt enough of...) in her films. Well, I suppose that that's my point here. I don't think Eleanor ever projected enough "charisma"(for want of a better word) in scenes when she wasn't wearing her tap shoes...and regardless the quality or lack thereof of the dialogue she's given.

    Well, I don't know if it's a case of Ryan and Widmark choosing those roles or if it was more the idea of the "roles choosing them", Andy. 'Cause, while both were most assuredly great actors, neither of them possessed the "classic leading man looks" one would think would have been the prerequisite during their time for the romantic lead in films, as both had a rather "hard look" about 'em.

    I was talking more here of the comedies Ginger made sans Fred, Hibi.

    Why No Beatles Films on TCM?

    Sorry dark, but the only version of that song I like is the one Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake do when they're doin' their "The Barry Gibb Talk Show" skit on SNL!

    Yeah maybe, but it still seems to me that, say, Ginger Rogers for instance, could take the silliest of scripts and dialogue and still make them and her fun to watch.

    Before I did what clore did and changed the channel(to watch the fantastically done updated "Cosmos" series) I only caught a little of this movie last night and came into it just as Skelton and Powell tell Thurston Hall in the nightclub that they've wed and then the somewhat cleverly done physical comedy routine were Red attempts to get the accidentally drugged with sleeping pills Eleanor into bed so she can sleep. However, what I seemed to notice while watching those scenes is that while Eleanor may have been one of the great tap dancers in film, I don't think she was all that good an actress, as I felt her line-delivery and facial expressions were rather flat. And I recall noticing this in a few other of the films I've seen her in over the years, and when she's not kicking up her heels in them. And so, maybe this is the reason MGM always seemed to give her short-shrift. (...sorry all you Eleanor Powell fans out there, but that's how I see it)

    Any of you a TCM Fan Programmer?

    I've always had the following strict personal policy from which I've never(okay once or twice) deviated: "I would NEVER enter ANY contest which would accept ME as a contestant!" (...however, a hearty congrats to all those chosen...lookin' forward to seein' all those smilin' faces on my TV set!)
  9. Ya think THAT'S bad, do ya Andy?! Well, while searchin' the net about this whole casting thing for this flick, I ran across someone who claims even Jerry Lewis was at one time considered for the Higgins part! (...and supposedly with the working title set to be...wait for it..."HEY, My Fair LADY"!!!)

    >Now that was funny, Dargo. Well how do ya like THAT?! I'm FINALLY serious about somethin' around here, and the guy thinks THAT'S funny!!!
  11. Ya know noah, I'm startin' to get the impression that if you DO ever find the answer to your question about who the actor was that was so rude to Geneieve, you're gonna hunt him down and give him a piece of your mind!!! (...btw, that IS a great picture of your crush here!)

    Thanks, Joe! These little "cathartic moments" of mine DO help quite a bit. (...as that nice doctor who visits this end of the ward on weekends always tells me)

    ...and while listening to that new rising young star Robert Wagner attempting to play a medley of patriotic hits on his sousaphone, I would assume. (...yep, sorry Joe...I just had to get THAT off my chest too!)

    >yeah...and I was the one who inspired it. Well then MissW, consider yourself our new resident "Good Influence" for our resident "Bad Influence" around here...'cause I DO often wish finance would more often elaborate upon some of his astute and cleverly written observations and suppositions around here! (...though I suppose those Disco spin classes of his CAN be rather addicting and thus leaving little room in his busy schedule, huh!)
