  1. William Holden as SOTM April 2018

    TopBilled, thank you for this wonderful William Holden SOTM schedule. Holden is well deserved. (Those birthdays on one of my other posts were in the unlikely event he wasn't selected, but we can always refer back to it in May and June.) I'm waiting for my invitation from him.
  2. Life Imitates Art

    Montgomery Clift - Clift played tortured characters and was tortured himself. He was never the same after his car accident at Elizabeth Taylor's house. Marilyn Monroe once said he was the only one who was in worse shape than she was, and she was right. George Raft - Raft played tough guy gangsters and was even tougher to deal with in real life. Raft was very difficult to work with and was constantly suspended by Paramount for not doing the films they wanted him to do. Paramount eventually got fed up and released him from his contract early. My Worst Actor/Actress Collapses thread might help you (and whoever else responds to this thread). You'll find it here:
  3. Classic Films with a Gay Twist

    Lady Bird (2017) Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) is lesbian high school student who has romances with both Danielle (Selena Gomez) and Kayla (Joy-Anna Forsyth) during her senior year of high school.
  4. Articles and obituaries

    John Gavin Obituary From February 9th John Gavin, the movie heartthrob who starred in Imitation of Life, Psycho and Thoroughly Modern Millie, has died, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He was 86. Gavin, who served as President Ronald Reagan's ambassador to Mexico in the 1980s, died Friday morning, said Budd Burton Mossa, a rep for the actor's wife, actress Constance Towers. They married in 1974. Hailed as a second coming of Rock Hudson at Universal Pictures, Gavin played Lana Turner's love interest in Douglas Sirk's remake of Imitation of Life (1959); portrayed Sam Loomis, who as Janet Leigh's boyfriend helps solves the mystery of Norman Bates, in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960); and was the object of Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore's affections in George Roy Hill's Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967). The strapping 6-foot-4 Gavin also starred on two short-lived series in 1964 and '65: as the framed lawman on the ABC Western Destry and as a freighter captain on NBC's Convoy. In May 1981, Gavin — who spoke fluent Spanish and had been appearing in commercials South of the Border for Bacardi rum — quit a Broadway-bound revival of Can-Can to accept President Ronald Reagan's invitation to serve as Ambassador to Mexico. According to a 1983 article in People magazine, he presided over what was then America’s third-largest embassy, with 1,181 employees. He resigned from the post in June 1986. Gavin's film credits also included A Time to Love and a Time to Die (1958); A Breath of Scandal (1960); Back Street (1961); Tammy Tell Me True (1961), with Sandra Dee; The Madwoman of Chaillot (1969); and Pussycat, Pussycat, I Love You (1970).
  5. Classic Films with a Gay Twist

    Puzzle of a Downfall Child (1970) Louis Jeffrey Sands (James Darren) is a former model whose story is being filmed for a documentary. The topics include Louis' homosexuality, Louis leaving his ex-fiance, Mark (Roy Scheider), at the altar on their wedding day, his suicide attempt, and his second career as a musician.
  6. Handsome men who did not become movie stars

    Jonathan Brandis Tribute
  7. Star of the Month

    TopBilled, great list. I'm adding Donald O'Connor and Robert Vaughn to the list. Vaughn never got any sort of tribute after he passed away. (I was hoping for a SUTS tribute last year after the Oscars screwed up royally, but no such luck.) Donald O'Connor would be impossible to pass up with this amount of energy.
  8. Worst Film Of Classic Stars

    I haven't seen The Color of Money, but I can understand why the Academy gave him the Oscar.
  9. Worst Film Of Classic Stars

    Joseph Cotten - I'll Be Seeing You The movie was so ridiculous that there was no way they would keep their secrets for very long. I love Joseph Cotten, and he deserved so much better than this mess.
  10. Worst Film Of Classic Stars

    I actually thought the worst Paul Newman film I've seen was The Hustler. Even though I enjoyed his performance (and he's one I think is good no matter what movie you stick him in), the movie itself WAS. A. BORE. (Again, this is only going by what I've seen.)
  11. MIA Actors and Actresses

    This one isn't from Classic Hollywood, but it's a tragedy along the lines of Maggie McNamara. Jonathan Brandis was a teenage heartthrob who was best known for his role on SeaQuest DSV. After the series was cancelled, the roles were few and far between, and he suffered from depression. Brandis committed suicide on November 12th, 2003.
  12. Robert Mitchum Paul Newman Jack Lemmon Humphrey Bogart Lauren Bacall Ava Gardner Gregory Peck
  13. Farley Granger. No surprise here. Anyone who knows me knows Farley is #1 on my Who Cares/Strongly Dislike list. His voice is extremely annoying, and it gets on my nerves after awhile. He's basically the male version of Kristen Stewart; both were former teen stars who got juicy adult roles based on luck and not on talent.
  14. Classic Films with a Gay Twist

    Like Crazy (2011) Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and Marcus (Armie Hammer) attend college together in California and fall madly in love. Their love is tested when Marcus's father informs Marcus the whole family is moving to Mississippi due to his job.
  15. William Holden as SOTM April 2018
