    I Just Watched...

    If you had seen Michael Moriarty in the stage play that established him, "Find Your Way Home", you would've felt that he was destined to be a movie star.

    On stage, it is quite effective.

    Laurence Harvey directed the film with a great deal of care and he did manage to pull together a very interesting cast.

    Jacques Demy created a masterpiece - Moreau and Mann are unforgettable.

    Such a fine actor, he was exceptional as the bandit in "The Outrage".

    Sorry, it was Universal-International, his first studio, which used him in several films.

    Discussing Elvis Presley...as an actor.

    His largely suppressed love affair with Nick Adams must've been a major ache in his life. Indeed, Adams, who wanted to make capital of the relationship, wrote a basically cleaned-up version of their relationship. When Adams supposedly committed suicide, just before threatening to tell the truth, it was largely surmised by Hollywood insiders that Adams had been murdered.

    Male Beauty In The Movies

    Throughout the years in the movies, there have been many, many examples of actors who became a major component in a film's success due to their youth, beauty and charm. And most of them have gone on to become genuine stars, too. It can be said of these actors that "The camera loved them." And they, in turn, responded without restraint to the camera. Whether they could act or not was never that important. Because what they brought to the camera - in terms of their over-all presence - was always an indelible ingredient of any film that they chose to inhabit. And, here is just one early example:

    "The Couch"

    So glad that you liked it, it's a fine film, Universal-International released in on the bottom half of a double bill, the main feature was a film that starred Dorothy Dandridge and James Mason. If they had treated it as the first-rate psychological study that is - and it had succeeded at the box office on that basis - it might've saved Grant Williams' career at Universal-International. Instead, they released him from his contract - and Warner Bros. signed him up for a time.
  23. Sometimes, when you are watching a movie, you are faced with a fact that you cannot really believe. Some of them are bad, some are outstandingly bad. But on Monday, I was faced with one that I really didn't want to believe. In the truly bad screen version of "On Your Toes", which had almost nothing to do with the famous Broadway musical hit, beginning actor, Edddie Albert, who could barely dance, was forced to dance opposite famed ballerina, Vera Zorina, in the muscial's famed ballet, "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue". It was so painful to watch. I felt sorry for Vera Zorina. I felt sorry for Eddie Albert. And I knew that, for me, I had inadvertently stumbled into REALLY BAD MOVIEMAKING. INSANE MOVIEMAKING. It could not get any lower. Has anybody here had a similar experience?

    Discussing Elvis Presley...as an actor.

    In his early films for Hal B. Wallis, he showed a lot of acting promise, but then MGM and the formulaic musicals took over.
