    That's her! Joan propped herself up in her 'sick bed', called for her makeup artist and hair stylist..and accepted the award like a trooper! That's a wrap! thanks for playing! and in the final words of Robert Redford in The Candidate: "What do we do now?" 🤔

    Hitchcock Mania

    My first thought was John Williams..had to check on the Tony Award...turns out he won it for Dial M for Murder, and he repeated the role in the '54 film. He was also in To Catch a Thief, and The Paradine Case He was in 10 episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents..the one that stands out in my mind is "Back for Christmas"..he buries his wife in the basement, but a 'gift' from her exposes his crime.

    I Just Watched...

    The Art of Love (1965)--Dick Van Dyke stars as a failed artist living in France with fellow American, writer James Garner. Van Dyke uses all his money to buy a ticket home to the chagrin of Garner (it's Van Dyke's gorgeous wealthy fiance', Angie Dickinson, that has bankrolled their French venture). The two get drunk, and Van Dyke says if he was dead, his paintings would sell, so Garner pens a suicide note for him. It's all in jest--until Van Dyke jumps into a river to save another suicide 'victim', Elke Sommer. Everyone thinks Van Dyke is dead, and his art sells like crepes, so when he returns home, the two roomies decide he should remain dead. Van Dyke hides out at the club, (although it really looks like a bordello) of Madame Coco (Ethel Merman)..and who should be working there as a maid? Of course it's Sommer. Things get complicated when Dickinson shows up, not knowing Van Dyke is 'dead', and Garner takes advantage of the situation. The first hour is quite slow..Van Dyke's character is always disagreeable, Garner oozes con man vibes, and Sommer's naive' schtick grows tiresome. The pace picks up at the end, when Garner is charged with Van Dyke's murder (set up by a vengeful Van Dyke) and heads to the guillotine. Dickinson and Carl Reiner (as the incompetent lawyer) are pretty much wasted, Merman gets a few over-the-top moments she's known for, but all in all it's a pretty average 60's comedy. You can watch it here: maybe you'll like it more than I did...

    Final Lines By Oscar Winning Characters

    This is her last line..then she goes to the stage and sings Fonda is talking to Katharine Hepburn about a pair of ducks in the water 9. Sally Field in Norma Rae..Field's first Oscar..it wasn't until her second that she thought people really 'liked her'.. only 12 is left..she's speaking to another actress who got an Oscar nom for the role..3 actresses got nom's for this pic. She has another 'final scene' with an actor, but doesn't speak. This actress was in films almost 20 years before she got this, her first, Oscar nom...after this she got 2 more, but no wins.

    some hints: 5. "Just the two of them now, the babies have all grown up and moved to Los Angeles, or somewhere." spoken by a man who received his first Oscar for the role...to an actress who also won for this film 7. "Bye Nick" an actress..her only win in the acting category 9. "I was gonna buy you a tie clip or some shavin' lotion or something, but I didn't know what you'd like." an actress, this was her first of two Oscar wins as lead actress..the other was five years later 12. "Honey, I'm sorry--I did the best I could." actress..her third nomination, first win...she didn't come to the ceremony to receive the award (but was camera ready at home..)

    100% on all the answers! Here's what's left...I'll give some clues if no one guesses 5. "Just the two of them now, the babies have all grown up and moved to Los Angeles, or somewhere." 7. "Bye Nick" 8. "The way we're swimmin', old girl!" 9. "I was gonna buy you a tie clip or some shavin' lotion or something, but I didn't know what you'd like." 12. "Honey, I'm sorry--I did the best I could."

    I Just Watched...

    Well, I couldn't resist that... So, I just finished watching it...you're right of course, it's bad...but probably not much worse than the other 'JD' films of the 50's. Marlowe is overdoing the James Dean 'angst' thing, and a lot of these 'teenage boys' have some awfully deep facial lines to be so young. Obviously, the writer didn't do their homework, or they would've sent the gang over to that Pat's Pig BBQ place for the munchies. 😎 Evidently, this was released on a double bill with Dragstrip Riot (with Fay Wray and Connie Stevens!..)

    Thanks for the quiz, Det. Jim McLeod! I thought of a few more, if anyone wants to take a stab at them... 1. "Ma, I love him awful" 2. "Never mind that, you're rusting my guitar!" 3. "Thank you Arthur, thank you for my children" 4. "I ain't gonna call her anymore--I'll fix your eggs." 5. "Just the two of them now, the babies have all grown up and moved to Los Angeles, or somewhere." 6. "Oh don't worry we'll make it, it's a clear case of predestination--look it up" 7. "Bye Nick" 8. "The way we're swimmin', old girl!" 9. "I was gonna buy you a tie clip or some shavin' lotion or something, but I didn't know what you'd like." 10. "I love you Norm--two more months." 11. "Children? I had thousands of them, thousands of them and all boys." 12. "Honey, I'm sorry--I did the best I could."
