    Overrated talents ?

    Well, I couldn't think of another word that fit I'm talking about those who had the studio's full support and resources. And maybe shouldn't have. Elvis is a great example. Although he did sell well.

    Overrated talents ?

    The Paulette Goddard thread in "Your Favorites" got me thinking. We all can think of stars who should have been given more of a chance (better roles, more roles etc...), to be a bigger star. But, that's easy. My question is this: Who are actors/actresses who got lots of studio support and really didn't deserve it ? Or they didn't have the potential some studio head may have thought they did ? I see this a lot today, but, how about in the classic era ?

    Secret Agent/Spy Films

    I didn't care for them myself. Mission Impossible is supposed to be about a team working together. Cruise ruined all that.

    Favorite Performers By Decade

    My actual choice for 1950's was Hitchcock. But, that wasn't going to work. Then I didn't want to list actors in their lesser decades. I couldn't place Cary Grant anywhere and I'm a fan of his. It was a fun exercise though.

    It gave me an opportunity to look at filmographies by the decade. Some actors like Denzel, really had some hot streaks where they made some very interesting films.

    Secret Agent/Spy Films

    This is one genre that dear to me. I'll watch just about anything involving spies. Even the dreadful ones. I like this one for the simple fact its straight forward. Most of what happens actually could happen. No crazy explosions, car chases or being shot one hundred times and never being hit. I love it.

  12. The problem I have with Madonna is that, while she is quite successful in pop music and performances, she thought she could just slide over into acting without taking classes and working her way up from the bottom. And it shows, unfortunately. I wish she had taken the time to be a believable actress but, she is probably too arrogant for that. And frankly, its embarrassing for her.
