    Ranking 67 Burt Reynolds Movie Best To Worst

    I have done yearly reviews from 1930 to 1977 & 1979 (yes 1978 is the next one)...but the very first yearly report was 1946. 1946 is the greatest year in movie history when looking at average admissions per week. It is the peak...almost 96 million people a week saw movies in North America....it has all been down here since then. So...being first has helped it get some views. But Best Years of our Lives did not hurt it at all.

    Hey Top Billed...our Burt page has been a Top 25 page for years....we have 5,000 pages. I blame the power of Burt for this...lol. My mom is devasted...she has been a huge Burt fan ....plus they were born in the same year.
  7. Attended my wife's Uncle Gus’ funeral this weekend. At one point during the weekend we were looking through some of his old pictures. We found the following picture from Auburn’s Tiger Theater. The following picture looks like it was taken between 1945 and 1950. Back then, the studios sent out their actors to promote films….sometimes they ended up at the 715 seat Tiger theater. Her granddad is in the middle….it is possible….that the people on the left and right might be actors. So the question is….can anybody identify either person? I feel I disappointed the family when I could not identify the lady by the microphone…any help would be greatly appreciated…..if only to redeem myself in my family’s eyes. https://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/2018/07/july-23rd-need-classic-movie-help-in-possibly-identifying-an-actress/

    Another photo that is not a mystery....the Tiger Theater Marque in either late 1941 or early 1942. Spencer Tracy's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was in town.

    Hey MovieCollectorOH and Zea .....the two pictures side by side look like a good match.

    Need some Classic Movie Experts to Identify An Actress

    Hey Zea....these pictures where in box in a closet.....there was no rhyme or reason to how they were in the box....so there could be years between the two photos. I like your Holmes dedications on the hairdos and the different suites and dresses. Marion Hutton seems like a good suggestion....as I have looking at old photos of her too. Been trying to find which actress went with the ship in the Green Dolphin photo. The Auburn Historical Society might be a good place to check out. The next time we are in Auburn....I might have to go to the library and see what kinds of files they have on the old newspaper coverage in the 1940s. Your efforts and thoughts are appreciated.

    Hey Lawrence A. I think you are right....been looking at photos of Linda Christian from that time frame and it really looks like her. Plus I could see the studio sending her to Auburn instead of the bigger stars like Lana Turner, Van Heflin and Donna Reed. So I think it is safe to say that this mystery photo has been solved.

    Hey Scsu1975. Excellent job finding this photo. I have to assume the ship made a trip to Auburn....and "docked" right outside the theater. Thank you for finding this photo. Kudos to Movie Collector for figuring it out.

    Hey Sepiatone.....good thoughts.....the guy in the middle is my wife's grandfather.....he was the manager of the Tiger Theater from 1932 to 1959. So your guess of "And those guys behind her possibly just a couple of local officials of some kind" is 100% correct at least with the guy in the middle.

    Need some Classic Movie Experts to Identify An Actress

    Hey MovieCollectorOH that is a great guess…..Green Dolphin Street came out in 1947…and that is the range we are thinking that the movie came out. Now I can look at the IMDb cast for that movie.

    Hey Wayne…..well….“marcelled pompadour effect.” is an awesome bit of trivia. My father-in-law went down the same path …only he went with style of the suits to come up with the range of 1946 to 1952. Thanks for the help.

    Need some Classic Movie Experts to Identify An Actress

    All of the guesses and suggestions are greatly appreciated. My father-in-law, who is still around....but was between 10 and 20 at the time of the photos has no idea at all.....they presented the question to me...."the family's movie expert".....and I had a big ZERO. So all of these comments are very helpful. This picture has no mystery....just love all the bikes in front of the theater.

    Finally figured out how to add the photos.

    The lady in this photo is also a mystery. The previous photo was on the stage in front of the screen....this one looks like it might have been outside the theater. Sadly the back of the photo has absolutely nothing on it. No date, no names no nothing....you would have thought they would have left a note so 70 years later we would know...lol.

    Thank you CaveGirl and NickandNora34. Sadly everybody that could answer if it was singer or actress is long gone. My wife's grandfather passed away in 1959....he had a massive heart attack while working at the theater....so Auburn's Tiger theater is literally where he died. Marion Hutton and Helen Forrest seem like better guesses than Mary Martin....if only because Martin might have been too big of a star to be sent to Auburn.

    Not quite....but thanks for the guess.

    Our Tab Hunter Movie Tribute Page - RIP

    From one of my favorite books....Consumer Reports - Rating The Movie Stars by Joel Hirschhorn Tab Hunter was always underrated. He was too pretty and over-publicized to get much respect. For the most part he had impossible roles, but had impossible roles, but did surprisingly well in the better ones. Best Tab Hunter Performances – from Rating The Movie Stars 4 Star Ratings Gunman’s Walk (1958) 3 Star Ratings Track of the Cat (1954) Battle Cry (1955) The Sea Chase (1955) Damn Yankees (1958) They Came To Cordura (1959) The Pleasure of His Company (1961) The Fickle Finger of Fate (1967) The Life And Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972) Polyester (1981)

    Hey Princess of Tap….good points about Hunter in Damn Yankees…..I read that he really did not enjoy making that movie…as the director was only interested in doing the stage play line by line. His pop career is pretty impressive. I will have to check out that ice skating. Good feedback.

    Track of the Cat might be Mitchum's most beautiful movie ever made.....the locations are amazing! Downer of an ending damper some people's thoughts about the movie....but I loved it.
