    HARRISON FORD OR JOHN WAYNE???

    Dwayne TheRock Johnson is by far highest pd far today, but not of all-time
  3. Irony of ironies, she was to make her broadway debut in Anna Karenina when she went away You can still see the adds & posters for it
  4. THANK YOU However there is absolutely nothing you or anyone can tell me about NATALIE! She was a product if the studio-system all the way
  5. know what your saying, but he still worked the boards first and even played *Tracy's Killer Mars in The Last Mile
  6. Look at majority of modern stars & they had no broadway experience, but almost all did in these days *Tracy & *Hepburn, *Olivier-(best on stage), *Bogie, *Gable, *Cagney, *Brando, etc except for Garbo & a handful of others, they played the boards as they called them first Overall they learned their craft first before HOLLYWOOD
  7. This will likely be a tv movie, not certain yet & only saw it yesterday but the terrific Irish actor Brendan Gleeson may play the president Donald Trump soon. He's a lot bigger than Trump, but I could see it, look at *Crowe as Roger Ailes & Gleeson has been in many films Gangs of New York, the General, In Bruge-(misspelled) & a lot more
  8. Don't remember who it was, I think a female & she posed a superb topic months ago about THE MUSIC BOX being the most perfect movie ever made! Are you out there whom ever write that?
  9. Always wanted to see The Little Tramp in an entire movie in a theater & you picked his two greatest!
  10. She had such class at certain times & pivotal times, when he almost died in '59 at their home (9191 St. Ives Drive in B. hills) wanted to see it, but it's really covered in foliage, her idea she made a pt of living though before the police, meds & media & most if all is wife Louise arrived. She pulled identical thing at his June 1967 funeral at Glendale's, Forest lawn-(all the way at the very top, near *Walt Disney & Errol Flynn) She said she followed the funeral procession -(both *SINATRA *FORD & *JIMMY STEWART WERE AS PALLBEARERS BY THE WAY) until the got to it famous gates & drove off her own way I always strongly felt though she visited up there privately (NOTE: Look for a tremendous docu mostly on him, but she narrates entre special & rom The Thalberg Bldg & all over M-G-M before it was ripped down, this was (1986) THE SPENCER TRACY LEGACY (PBS) but on youtube)
  11. He really hated returning to the stage & that was the final time *Brando also yrs later said same thing, but for different reasons, he said it was boring
  12. That was it Iron Petticoat what bizarre casting, in all books & interviews she never mentioned it Besides *Tracy, she also idolized Garbo-(a friend of the 2) & *Gary Cooper
  13. TopBilled, you on the $$$ about the casting, matter of fact *Gable & Lana did a kinda Western together in **** Tonk (***) What are your top three of *Tracy & his *Kate's-(as he later called her?)
