    I just saw S.O.B.

    I would suggest a made-for-TV movie called "Finnegan Begin Again" (1985). Preston stars in a sweet love story with Sylvia Sidney as his wife and Mary Tyler Moore as his girlfriend. Very enjoyable!
  2. I am with Hibi; the thought Clark Gable, Fred Astaire and Reginald Gardner were discussing Walt Whitman at a Hollywood party? Wow!

    Big Heads

    I remember reading once that the make-up men in Hollywood unanimously said the toughest job was making up Edward G. Robinson. In a contemporary context, I would think it would be James Remar (The Cotton Club).

    "In the Spotlight"

    Mongo, I just wanted to thank you for such a great thread! My schedule doesn't permit much time for following the posts here but yours is one I always look for. And the artwork is fantastic! Thanks again and please keep up the great work!
  5. While I am not a big fan of horror movies I was delighted to see jahrfive mention The Woman in Black. I saw it about ten years ago and was absolutely riveted. It would be my pick for a modern horror film even though it was a movie for TV. But my first choice isn't one that would be considered a traditional horror movie; it is Night of the Hunter with Robert Mitchum and Lillian Gish. I watched it by myself at home one dark and stormy evening and it scared the pants off me! Seeing Shelley Winters in the water sends chills up and down my spine, not to mention Bob walking outside the house with Gish and the kids inside. I thought it was great and could never figure out why Laughton never directed again. Any thoughts?

    Larry, please continue your postings from Russia. I for one look forward with eager anticipation to your recollections. And now to find you have first-hand knowledge of my two favourite subjects - classic movies and Tsarist Russia - well, it just doesn't get any better than that! Enjoy your trip and please continue with your always entertaining and informative posts!

    ***ASK MONGO***

    Good morning mongo, I would like to ask a further question in response to your reply to GWTW booklover concerning Rebecca Welles; you refer to her half-siblings Princess Yasmin, Christopher and Beatrice. I know about Yasmin and Beatrice but who is Christopher? Is he a son of Orson Welles? And whatever became of him? Also, whatever became of Beatrice? Thanks in advance for your reply. I just love to read your always interesting and informative posts.

    English Movies

    I would really love to see The Shooting Party with James Mason, Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Gordon Jackson, Robert Hardy and many more very talented English actors. It is one of those kind of movies the English do so well, rather like an earlier and better Gosford Park. Anybody know if it is out on DVD or when it might be?

    Movie Kisses

    My favourite is always Notorious with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman when they are kissing and nuzzling while he answers the phone. WOW!

    The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

    I'm dating myself but I saw this movie when it came out at a matinee in Westwood, Ca. and I remember being profoundly moved at the performances by Arkin and McCann. And the way the movie ends made me realize that movies really reflect the way things are in real life; they don't always have a happy ending. I have seen this movie many times since and it never fails to have an effect on me. Definitely worth watching.

    Your favorite W.C. Fields movie?

    I'm with cagney69 and michaeldouglas: it has to be 'It's A Gift'. The scene in the store with "Mr. Muckle, honey!" is absolutely one of the funniest I have ever seen.
  15. I would love to see two of Spencer Tracy's classics- 'Man's Castle' with Loretta Young and 'The Power and the Glory' with Colleen Moore, both from 1933. I am guessing the Fox has these so its possible they may never be on TCM. Does anyone know?
