    Hello, has anyone seen this film? I can only assume it's awful. I read that as the film was in production, the script continually changed creating issues between Katharine Hepburn and Bob Hope because she discovered it was turning into more of a BOB HOPE comedy with his usual shtick (that wasn't what she signed up for). Anyone, can anyone identify the man on the far right on this still? thanks.
  2. Hello, I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me ID these photos: #1 and#2 I believe are two different silent actresses? #3 and #4 are photos of a film set, director JACK CUMMINGS? and #5, I do not recognize this actor. anyone know? THANKS!

    identify these stars? a film set??

    an update regarding the SET DESIGN photographs, #3 and 4. It has been suggested that these photographs are actually from Hollywood Cavalcade (1939); that film **WAS** directed by Irving Cummings and, "Common Clay" was the title of a fictitious film-within-a-film. SO, is anyone here familiar with the film HOLLYWOOD CAVALCADE? Does TCM show it? THANKS!

    identify these stars? a film set??

    hello, thanks for the responses. I think you are right about the set designs being COMMON CLAY. I saw the directors name (JACK CUMMINGS) on one of the slate boards, but apparently he is not associated with this film. thanks again!
  5. Hello, I recently picked up a nice piece of British sheet music with a YOUNG Judy Garland from the film LISTEN DARLING. THe song is TEN PINS IN THE SKY.... this is what she sings in the film, and this is also what Judy sings on the Decca 78RPM. SO, take a look at the British sheet music.... the song is entitled "NINE pins in the sky"! I don't get it! I asked a British friend of mine if the bowl with nine pins in stead of ten, but they don't do that! any thoughts??!?

    early 1930s Paramount

    some interesting PARAMOUNT FILMS stills from very early 1930s. nice stuff. take a look, thanks! #1 film is SEA LEGS, with Jack Oakie on far left. Is that Lillian Roth on the far right? Who's the other woman #2 I believe that's Corinne Griffith on right, who is the man? #3 Barton MacLane (from Treasure of Sierra Madre) and Margaret Lindsay? #4 SKYSCRAPER SOULS 1932 Maureen O Sullivan, Gregory Ratoff in the middle? #5 JOE E Brown and Ona Munson? #6 Sin of Madelon Claudet, Charles WInninger on far right, is that Helen Hayes standing??, others? #7 ALison Skipworth on right, lady in middle looks like the annoying woman on the DENNIS THE MENACE series, but it isn't. ideas? #8 here we have Jack Oakie again, great photo. put I cannot identify the film because the number onthe lower left is confusing (no entries). ideas? #9 Child star? #10 film is Vanity Fair, but we don't have the stars here. ideas? #11 Jackie Cooper, film is SOOKY. whos the guy on the right
  9. About 15 years ago, the Lincoln Center film Society had a salute to Stanley Donen. all this films were shown. ANd, Mr. Donen actually came down to the theater and talked a little bit before a few of the screenings. I remember the evening of FUNNY FACE. A beautiful print was screened; Mr. Donen talked a little about working with Fred Astaire and AUdrey Hepburn. And there were celebrities (Phyllis Newman) in the audience as well. The night they screened MOVIE MOVIE was especially nice. The curator of the project told us that Mr. Donen agreed to appear, talk to the audience, if he promised to screen MOVIE, MOVIE. Afterward, Mr. Donen told the curator that it was a "lousy print" to which the curator responded that there were 'no prints' of the film anywhere. They got the print for the screening from a university library. It was very very good. Since it was apparently such an important film to Mr. Donen, I am hoping that TCM includes MOVIE MOVIE in their tribute. I am also delighted to read that it has finally been restored and is available on BLU-RAY. Another film of Mr. DOnen's which is 'perfect' is CHARADE. RIP Stanley Donen!

    was i right about #1? is that Lillian Roth on the far right?
  11. Hello everyone, and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Here are some interesting photos, as alwsays thanks in advance for any help! 1. This one is interesting; the code on the bottom says DH-2. If this is from a film, the 'DH' could be DARK HORSE or DOUBLE HARNESS but I don't recognize anyone from the cast of those films that might be this young man. Ideas? 2. & 3. The number on the bottom of these two photos is 838, and that translates to A TALE OF TWO CITIES? is that correct? probably couple of the character actors in the film. 4. Actually, the back of tghis photo has an MGM stamp, and the young man is RAYMOND HACKETT. He married silent star BLANCHE SWEET 5. I recognize FAY HOLDEN, and the film is CRIME OF DR FORBES, but who is the man to the right of Ms. Holden? 6. Another HAROLD LLOYD film, but no identifiers. anyone know film name? 7. This one has an ID on the bottom right, MC which, according to my book, might be MELODY CRUISE from RKO? 8. this is BACK DOOR TO HEAVEN and the woman (i believe) is IRIS ADRIAN, the guy is ??? 9. I'm not sure on this one, code is 332 but it doesn't look like MGMs handwriting......

    more interesting movie photos..........

    hi all, I'm still trying to identify the young man in photo #1. It was suggested (by a film scholar) to me that the coding on the bottom indicates a character actor, 1932-1933, from RKO. Well, I went through every film made during that period at RKO, and I have only been able to come up with the name of 'oscar dutch hendrian'/ I am trying to find an early photo of him; the NC on the bottom of this photo corresponds with a warners title NARROW CORNER. But more importantly, he was in many RKO films in the 1932-1933 period. thanks!

    Wizard of Oz favorite character

    This is a tough question. I think I like Frank Morgan; he is so WONDERFUL as Professor Marvel, the Doorkeeper, the horseman!, the (right hand man?) guy who tells Dorothy and Friends to 'go away!' and then starts crying!, and wizard himself. I Know they had WC Fields in mind, but i think he would have been over the top. ALSO, I like the 'optimistic voices'.

    more interesting movie photos..........

    I have one more, i know the film: ITS LOVE I'M AFTER. However, its the dinner table scene and I recognize only Bonita Granville standing in the front. ANy chance those with their backs to the camera are either BETTE DAVIS or Olivia De Havilland??

    interesting candid? photo

    Hello all: I have an interesting newspaper photo circa 1946 (i think) with Jose Iturbi, Lucille Ball, Walter Pidgeon, JOhn Garfield and Red Skelton. Not sure why the three people in-between Jose Iturbi and Lucille Ball are. anyone know. I am guessing this must be a candid-publicity tour type of photo. Interesting, right??

    some great photographs

    Hi Everyone, some great and interesting photos here! This one is just a great shot of Maurice CHevalier and Claudette Colbert from SMILING LIEUTENANT. very young! from NEW YORK NIGHTS with Norma Talmadge. I'm afraid I don't know who the man is. Is that Norma Talmadge (never seen her films....) SADIE McKEE with Joan Crawford, Gene Raymond and Jean Dixon. Never saw this film. thoughts? also from SADIE McKEE; i'm guessing its a candid of Joan Crawford and the two gentlemen are producers, directors or crew from THAT GIRL FROM PARIS with Jack Oakie, Gene Raymond, Mischa Auer, Frank Jenks. NOt sure of the man on the far left. the woman is either Lily Pons or Lucille Ball...... My vote is Lucille Ball! HELLS ANGELS (1930) clearly JEan Harlow on the right, who is the guy? film is HIS WOMAN with Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert. I do not think that is Claudette Colbert on the far right? anyone know who she is, and who's the guy in the middle? thanks!

    hello again, I've been trying to identify the title for this photo; based on the 'circus' atmosphere, I thought it might be SIN OF HAROLD DIDDLEBOCK but Harold Lloyd looks so very young........ thoughts?

  22. Hello, Has anyone seen this film, HOUSEWIFE (1934) with Bette Davis, George Brent and Ann Dvorak? The photographs look interesting. I must say that I don't think I've ever seen a film with ANN DVORAK.... I did see THREE ON A MATCH many years ago, but she doesn't stand out in my mind. Can someone recommend a film with her thats good? I am guessing that HOUSEWIFE is probaby mediocre at best. Here are some stills from the film. I know that the first image shows ANN DVORAK. Who is the woman next to her? and the others? thanks!
