  1. While smoking in classic films was quite common (as it was in the general public) I'm still surprised when I sometimes the character smoking in bed (alone.) Davis and Celeste Holm do it in All About Eve and Stanwyck in Sorry, Wrong Number. Even back then, that just seems too dangerously wrong.
  2. But that may be exactly what Renee was going for.

    BLUE DENIM

    I love this thread. It gets my vote as one of the best, should anyone be keeping score. And really, doesn't everything, somehow, relate back to Brandon and Carol?

    It says SURF NAZIS MUST DIE. Why, I don't know, but Stacy just stares at it. Now you know if it is ever a Jeopardy answer.

    Trivia Question: (Don't look it up!) When Stacy is in that dugout and looking up at the ceiling what graffiti does she see?

    Sort of like "I knew Dorothy Parker. Jennifer, you're no Dorothy Parker?"

    Entertainment Weekly, after Miami Blues and Last Exit to Brooklyn dubs JJL "The Meryl Streep of Bimbos."

    It was a TV movie called Best Little Girl in the World (1981), I remember seeing it at the time.

    From what I understand Parker did sound like that; I assume that Jennifer had some source recordings to draw on. Your description sounds apt, sort of a Locust Valley Lockjaw Drunk Drawl.

    I LIKE TO HAVE A MARTINI TWO AT THE VERY MOST AFTER THREE I'M UNDER THE TABLE AFTER FOUR I'M UNDER THE HOST

    I love Dorothy Parker....I love Jennifer Jason Leigh (Hey, spell her DAMN NAME CORRECTLY!) and I love the film, Mrs. Parker. Admittedly, Jennifer's accent becomes incomprehensible at some point, but that's because of the drink. The film has Lili Taylor as Edna Ferber, so it's worth it just for that.

    If interested, to round out the films of Shannon Doherty I highly recommend Girls Just Want to Have Fun (1985), which starred a very young Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt.

    I saw Electric Dreams when it opened and LOVE it. The one that was going to catapult Virginia Madsen into super-stardom. They should release it without the Culture Club songs, so long as it has Moroder's Electric Dreams, The Duel and Helen Terry's Now You're Mine, one of the greatest, unheralded songs from the 1980s.

    I have one of those combo machines but watching anything on VHS now is unbearable, the quality is so hideous. I had a huge tape collection but now am almost finished throwing the last ones into the trash. Maybe I tossed some valuable gems away, but I'll never look at them again.
  15. I did a rather quick survey of Carol Lynley's obituaries and news headlines about her passing and I'd say 95% of them were in the form of "Star of Poseidon Adventure....", "Poseidon Adventure Actress Carol Lynley.....".....one hit movie ends up defining your life. There was "Carol Lynley, doomed ship's singer in Poseidon Adventure...." One headline did add Blue Denim and one added Bunny Lake along with Poseidon. Oh, and there was "Poseidon Adventure Actress and Former Girlfriend of David Frost Has Died....."
