    Roger Moore gone??? James Bond was such a big part of my childhood and to see one of the best Bonds ever go is a huge blow for me. Rest in peace, 007. I'm going to miss you.

  9. I ask this because people don't give it much thought, at least to my knowledge, and I wonder why. It is the performance that made Bette Davis, one of the greastest actresses who ever lived, famous and it showed how downright fearless she was. I don't think any actress of that time would have did what she did in this film. But she's not the only one who makes this film great, in my opinion. Leslie Howard plays the struggling artist whose obsessive love for the cold and apathetic waitress Mildred threatens his career really well and creates a character that I can personally relate to. I think the reason why I love this film is not only the great performances but because of its gritty realism. I highly dislike angsty and dramatic films that end with an overtly happy ending so this one didn't disappoint (spoiler I guess). That's all I have to say about this movie for now. Just wondering here.

  11. I fail at quoting. LOL. Sorry!!!!
  12. Yeah I'm really starting to like Leslie Howard's work too. I did see Petrified Forest but didn't get to finish it. I loved those scenes with Davis and Howard just talking before Bogart showed up. Thanks for the comments everybody. I was just wondering. By the way, how is the book, Of Human Bondage? Was there anything in it that didn't make it to the screen?

    I know what you mean. I look forward to reading your reviews on the Pierce Brosnan films. Those are the ones I grew up with so they hold a special place in my heart.

    I have to say that the music called Bond Lured to Pyramid in the soundtrack is some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard. Worst Bond film? Maybe, but not all of it is bad. (I know I'm late. Sorry!)

    TCM to discontinue print editions of Now Playing

    Well, this sucks. I never even got the chance to get one of those and I'm disappointed. They looked like they'd be awesome.
