    1949-one opinion

    I'll chime in late on the De Havilland conversation. One of the great things about the Golden Age is that the versatility of the actors, I think, allows fans who don't like a specific performance, to very likely enjoy another one from the same actor/actress. The key is to watch many performances. An example for me is Eleanor Parker, who played so many different types of characters. However - and TopBilled can speak on this far better than me - the studio system could hinder an individual by continuing to place them in the same type of role they had success.

    NickAndNora34's Disney Movie Journey

    NickandNora34: Terrific idea. I love anything done chronologically. I'm currently watching movies released in 1957 (having gone through 37-56). I had trouble finding some Disney live-action movies from early 50s. Got fortunate that a local library still had a VHS copy of Song of the South. Currently watching the 55-56 Disney serial The Adventures of Spin and Marty.

    1948 - one opinion

    TopBilled: You are right about Key Largo and the supporters thought of more than the leads. I read an interview from Bacall once that she didn't like the film because she didn't consider it a Bogart/Bacall movie. I understand what she's saying, but it's my favorite movie of the ones they made together.

    1948 - one opinion

    Bethluvsfilms: I'm right with you on your individual picks. 1) Olivia 2) Huston deserved the win; and agree Robinson should have been nominated 3) And Trevor But I chose Clifton Webb because I think he made what would have been a bad movie watchable.

    1947 movies

    TopBilled: I didn't know that about Craig. Which ones? He's nothing like Gable (I guess no one really is), but I liked him a lot at times, especially The Human Comedy.
