    Thanks for the photo of Nestor. He speaks Spanish, and for many years he played Hispanic roles. A very good looking and reliable actor too.Now I am sorry that I didn`t watch LOST when ABC had the show on their network.

    I would like to read Barbara`s biography STEEL TRUE 2015 by Victoria Wilson sometime this year. The author was very imformative when being interviewed on the Noir CitySF website.

    For my favorite actress, I would like to add Barbara caught between Robert Ryan and Paul Douglas in CLASH BY NIGHT 1952. I love the dialogue in this film, and Barbara`s tough and tender side. This film noir has always been a favorite of mine.

    Since THE BATES MOTEL began on A&E four years, I haven`t missed a episode. Vera Farmiga is a actress that I really like. Films that I have seen her in are THE DEPARTED, UP IN THE AIR, THE CONJURING Part !, and THE JUDGE. Freddie has the stare of Norman Bates, which helped him get the part. Norma and Norman are excellent as mother and son. I will be crushed if Norma is dead in the last episode. Norma`s son Dylan has always impressed me. He can tough and gentle with conviction. Since nobody has mentioned his name, Sherrif Alex Romero was heartbreaking in the last scene. Nestor Carbonell who plays Alex was in the cast of LOST which I never watched. Carlton Cruse one of the creates of THE BATES MOTEL was also involved with LOST. I am happy that the show will return for a fifth season, but Norma will definitely be missed if she doesn`t awaken next Monday. Vera will be on the screen in THE CONJURING 2 in late June.

    I enjoyed Albert`s performances in TWO FOR THE ROAD 1967, SHOOT THE MOON 1982,ANNIE 1982, and ERIN BROCKOVICH 2000.
  6. PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES

    I agree with you. PLEASE DON`T EAT THE DAISIES 1960 is a very enjoyable film. Doris always worked well with children, and it shows in this film. Her pairing with David Niven, excellent costars, and Doris`s wardrobe pleased me plenty.
  7. Actor William Schallert (1922-2016)

    William can now join Patty and Jean in heaven. Patty had such a difficult home life with her managers John and Ethel Ross. I am sure that she was happier with her TV parents. In the past few weeks I reread Patty`s autobiography CALL ME ANNA 1987. Patty will always be missed by myself.

    The photo of Pat and Gary seems to have been taken during the making of THE FOUNTAINHEAD 1949. Later in life Pat became friends with Gary`s daughter Maria. She apologized for her three year affair with Gary, but I have always thought that he was the love of her life.Roald Dahl, Pat`s husband, wasn`t the easiest person to live with. He never got over the death of their first child Olivia from measles.
  9. BETTE

    For all the TCM fans who watched ALL ABOUT EVE 1950 last night, there is no question that George Sanders playing Addison DeWit with his sharp tongue and poison pen should be chosen as a TCM SOTM.Bette did win the New York Film critics award for her performance of Margo Channing. Maybe Gary Merrill was the love of Bette`s life, at least for almost a decade. They fell in love while making ALL ABOUT EVE, and I always thought that Gary was a decent actor.
  10. I Just Watched...

    I checked on YOU TUBE, and HOUSE OF STRANGERS is available.DEATH OF A SALESMAN 1951 is also on the channel.
  11. I Just Watched...

    While I was rewatching the excellent ALL ABOUT EVE 1950, another connection between Bette Davis and Anne Baxter came to mind. Beginning in September 1983 I started to watch the TV series HOTEL starring James Brolin. Bette was in the pilot episode, but she became ill being replaced by Anne Baxter as the hotel owner Victoria Cabot. The series ended in May 1988, and unfortunately Anne passed away before the series ended. HOTEL was similar to THE LOVE BOAT with different guest stars every week, and I never missed a episode.
  12. Robert Ryan Rules

    Thank you for sharing that you have read THE LIVES OF ROBERT RYAN.The author was very knowledgable when I watched his interview on YOU TUBE.
  13. I Just Watched...

    No, I haven't` seen HOUSE OF STRANGERS. I wonder if the film is available on YOU TUBE?
  14. Robert Ryan Rules

    Actress Madeline Stowe did a fine hosting job filling in for Robert, but I was hoping that author J.R. Jones would be included. A year ago his biography of Robert entitled THE LIVES OF ROBERT RYAN 2015 was released. He was interviewed on Eddie Muellers web site on You Tube Noir City SF. Mr Jones was very interesting and imformative. He graduated from the same high school in Chicago as Robert Ryan had.

    Thank goodness that Lauren received a honorary Academy Award. and she made the top twenty five best actress list from AFI before her passing.
