    Any Love For Ann Margaret?

    Her name is Ann-Margret. Not Margaret. Her first and middle names. Ann-Margret Olsson, and married name, Ann-Margret Smith. I have been in her company on several occasions, and she is as beautiful a soul and she looks. Such a lovely woman, and the recent death of dear Roger, who was also a kind soul, makes me sad. BYE BYE BIRDIE is such a fun movie. The cast is superb, and Onna White's staging of every musical number is sheer perfection. I love the chemistry that she and Julie Andrews share in OUR SONS, and wished they had worked together, again.

    'Kong - Skull Island' (2017)

    This movie was fantastic, imo. I had no interest in it, whatsoever, but I loved it!

    Anthony Perkins

    He was also meant to star in Sondheim's COMPANY. In fact, the score was written for him.. He was originally interested in directing it, when it was just going to be a play. When the musical score was written he agreed to do the lead role of Bobby, but then changed his mind. When he walked away from it, they begged Dean Jones to do it, because they needed a name. The show was already being publicized with Perkins Jones did the out of town tryouts, and opened with the show, but left almost right after the opening. I was always so happy that I got to see the show in its first week. Not a fan of it, at all, but I loved Dean Jones in it. Tony Perkins made films in Europe, but continued to live,mostly, in New York. He spent 7 years in a relationship with a friend of mine. They split, both got married, both had children, and both stayed married until death ended their marriages. Perkins death and my friend's wife.

    Saboteur (1942)

    I place it as well as FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT in his top 10.

    Money from Home in 3D

    I'm a 3D addict, but am just seeing your post. Is there a link to where I would need to add my signature. I wouldn't even think of buying the film in 2D.

    PSYCHO (1959) - any John Gavin fans out there?

    When did John Gavin die?! Also, your last comment certainly proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    So THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST Upset You, ...

    What's revisionist about it?

    A POLL: Sinatra, Bing or Elvis???

    I'm pretty sure those "records" are only by more recent standards, rock era-onward. Bing is the biggest star, of all media, ever. He has had more chart hits than anyone, by far, in recorded history. As a movie star, only Clark Gable and John Wayne have sold more movie tickets. Not only that, you are going by the rock-era American charts. Elvis tops the UK charts, not The Beatles.

    So THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST Upset You, ...

    I can't (won't) watch a movie about child abuse. Movies, regardless of the genre, have to have some modicum of entertainment, for me. There is simply NOTHING entertaining about child abuse, no matter how well it is otherwise made. The subject matter is the only completely abhorrent film topic, to me.

    So THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST Upset You, ...

    Except, Christ's "passion" is what the film is about, not his life. Nothing about it was gratuitous. While I feel it does accurately represent what actually happened, it does become rather tedious, after a while. Exhausting, even. Of course, that was precisely Mr. Gibson's intent. I never, ever wanted to see it again.

    So THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST Upset You, ...

    Is that picture even from PASSION OF THE CHRIST? It doesn't seem to be. I didn't like it, because too much of the exact same thing is boring to me. I do like THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, though. CALIGULA is just a lousy movie. Nothing to like. So is I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, and even though it was such a big hit with the midnight crowd, PINK FLAMINGOS doesn't hold a candle to FEMALE TROUBLE, in the wit department. SALO, THE NIGHT PORTER AND EL TOPO have moments, but SUSPIRIA is better than all of them.
  13. Nothing about its narrative grabs me. It's a finely crafted film, to be sure, It just does nothing for me. I dislike Wells. I find everything about his performances, obvious, and fairly ponderous. Of course, I'm not implying others should love the film or him, just saying I don't. GONE WITH THE WIND still impresses, all these years later. Remarkable performances from most of the cast, and for my money, a cinematic masterpiece.

    Bing was, by far, the biggest movie star of the three. He is the only one to be Number 1 Box Office star, multiple years. In movies, I enjoy all three.
