    MARION DAVIES for STAR OF THE MONTH

    MARION DAVIES also starred on radio shows. Here she is with Joel McCrea for a July 1936 broadcast of "The Brat." McCrea had been an extra in Davies' comedy THE FAIR CO-ED (1927) and co-starred in the abandoned Davies production of THE FIVE O'CLOCK GIRL (1929).

    Awards season 2018-2019

    How they'll do BEST FILM: " But they did disclose a few tidbits about what to expect from the broadcast. Brief presentations of the eight best picture nominees, for instance, will be “sprinkled” throughout the show, Weiss said. (Last year, the best picture presentations were condensed into a single four-minute montage that aired just before that category was awarded.) Eight people from outside the world of entertainment will give the presentations, speaking about what the films mean to them; Williams will give the one for “A Star Is Born.” SOUNDS HIDEOUS

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    This thread serves no purpose. The film has been shelved by Amazon for over a year. The only news is that Woody is now bringing suit against Amazon.

    Albert Finney (1935-2019)

    Another great star gone. It's often mis-reported that Albert Finney won an Oscar for Tom Jones, but he never won, although he was nominated 5 times between 1964 and 2001.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    One unfounded allegation from decades ago. Hysterically deranged Farrow apparently brainwashed this feeb into making the allegation. Other kids in the house witnessed this and have stated so. Yet Farrow and her toxic brood have hammered on this for decades without an ounce of proof. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, not one actress he's ever worked with has come forward with any tales of abuse or sexual harassment. Just the usual "I'll never work with him again" blather as they fall in line, despite having had no bad experiences with Allen themselves.

    S.T. Patrick’s Day Spotlight

    My project of The Bride's Play (1922) starring MARION DAVIES is still scheduled for Patty Day. Here is Thea Talbot (left) giving Marion Davies some tidbits about her boyfriend.
  11. Why do they even have to be LIVE? Does that really add anything to the mix? Does a LIVE presentation attract more viewers? I doubt it. Most viewers probably think everything they watch on TV is LIVE. They missed a huge opportunity with Bette Midler in HELLO, DOLLY! Here they had a major star in a well-known musical and it wasn't taped (except by amateurs in the audience) for broadcast or for posterity. Likewise, they missed the same chance with Glenda Jackson in THREE TALL WOMEN. Two Tony-winning performances lost to the ages. Granted, Jackson is probably not a household name anymore, but there's still a large segment of viewers who would have watched.
  12. If families want to see light-hearted entertainment they can always watch some more cartoons. I'm tired of nearly all the movies and TV shows aimed at 10-year-olds. It's time for adults to take back the theaters and home screens.
  13. Swift also had a supporting role in A PASSAGE TO INDIA (1985), though most of his work was on stage and TV.

    Black Face in Mary Poppins

    You hear the use of "Hottentot" in a lot in old British films. It was used as a generic term for any African and sometimes for people from India.
