    Is Steve McQueen "The King of Movie Cool?"

    I enjoy THE TOWERING INFERNO as well, and it's also been one of my mom's favorites as well.

    I Just Watched...

    Watched HUMORESQUE last night with John Garfield and Joan Crawford, and I have to say that Garfield was the best thing about the movie. Joan was fine as well, but I think it was really Garfield who shone through even the most soapy and overdramatic aspects of the film. Anyone else in his role, I probably wouldn't even bother writing about it. But he just demonstrates what a fine actor he was....and it once again enrages me when I think what could have been had he lived on and not had his career derailed.

    Highly Unlikely Pairings!

    Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd in LOOSE CANNONS....boy, was that movie ever a stinker though, quite tasteless. I actually can go for tasteless comedy but that movie took it to the extremes.

    What's up with all the crappy 80's films?!

    TCM mostly sticks with the classic era 30's to 50's movies and mid 60's films format, and so far hasn't shown any sign of going the way AMC (American Movie Classics) did. Nothing wrong with showing a little bit of 70's to 90's flicks in there to have more of a variety. As cigarjoe said, there have been classic films in every decade of filmmaking, but there have also been duds in every era as well.

    Rock and Roll Extravaganzas

    Having seen the reruns recently on METV, I have to say he's the funniest character on the show.

    Is Steve McQueen "The King of Movie Cool?"

    Anyway to bring back the topic of Steve, while he's not one of my favs, I will admit he did do a fine job as Papillion. Though I am hearing there are talks of a remake....something supposedly more faithful to the real story as it actually happened.

    Another Bad Statue

    I wonder if whoever did the statue was even aware that STAR TREK was a tv show long before a huge blockbuster film.
  10. Creepy film and very effective. I agree that this ranks as one of Jacques Tourneur's very best films. A rare occasion where I actually agree with Leonard Maltin. Wonders never cease.

    Is Steve McQueen "The King of Movie Cool?"

    I have heard the age old story that Wayne supposedly 'chickened out' of going to serve in World War II. But it's my understanding he was refused because of his age. You can disagree with his politics all you want (I must admit mine also differ from his in quite a few areas), but it doesn't make him a hypocrite.

    Is Steve McQueen "The King of Movie Cool?"

    That's your opinion. Mine is he could actually be a fantastic actor when he wanted to be.

    Claude Rains
  14. There's Dustin Hoffman as Tootsie. Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire (believe it or not though there are some people who are more sympathetic to Miranda, the ex played by Sally Field, even once he's exposed!). My personal favorites though HAVE to be Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in SOME LIKE IT HOT. Curtis reminds me of Eve Arden in drag, and of course he is deliberately channeling Cary Grant when he's pretending to be the millionaire.

    Is Steve McQueen "The King of Movie Cool?"

    As for Steve being the king of cool....I have to say there are MANY contenders way ahead of him on that one (Robert Mitchum and Humphrey Bogart come to mind).
