  1. I'm watching the tail end of The Conspirator. Elizabeth Taylor, still a teenager, was mature enough to play a young wife, but it's hard to believe Robert Taylor was just 38 years old when he filmed this. He lookes 10 years older. I think he aged even worse than Errol Flynn. At least Flynn's had a lifestyle not long-life friendly, and I don't think he looked quite this old at 38. Anybody else notice this? BLU
  2. Could it be the made for TV feature Right of Way, featuring another pair of screen legends: Bette Davis and James Stewart?

    looking for movie title

    It does sound like that storyline, but I don't remember anyone saying, "Lucky for me..."?
  4. I'm late to the party... I wish Barbara Stanwyck had won for Stella Dallas in 1937, although I do believe Luise Rainer was very good in The Good Earh (won't mention her in The Great Ziegfield). I wish Joan Fontaine had won for Rebecca in 1940. She was so perfectly vulnerable in that part. I never thought Ginger Rogers was all that in Kitty Foyle. I believe Fontaine's Oscar for Suspicion was a consolation that robbed Bette Davis in The Little Foxes. I'm okay with Grace Kelly in The Country GIrl (ducking to avoid being hit with whatever you're throwing). A Star Is Born struck me as a train wreck, all cut to pieces. I believe that if ever there should have been a tie, it would be 1950, for Gloria and Bette. Judy Holliday snuck in because voters were torn, in my opinion. I adore Shirley Booth's performance in Come Back, Little Sheba. It breaks my heart. I thought Deborah Kerr was more deserving in From Here To Eternity (1953) than Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. I would have liked to have seen Cicely Tyson win for Sounder (1972) over Liza Minnelli in Cabaret. BLU

    Farewell Jennifer Jones

    I wish they'd show Sister Carrie. Would love to see that one again; it's been years.

  9. There is a cast listed for the remake of The Women on the IMDB site. My question is this . . . does anyone know what the setting for the new film will be? Women don't really go to Reno for six weeks anymore to get divorces. And Jada Pinkett Smith is playing the Paulette Goddard role, the one who takes over Rosalind Russell's husband. Interracial marriage wouldn't work if it was set 60 years ago, so I'm completely lost! Bette Midler in the part of the Countess (I think) will probably be a hoot. Rue McClanahan of the Golden Girls did it beautifully in a revival that PBS televised a few years back (that was true to the raciness of the original play). BLU
  10. I've heard it said several times, including on Marlon Brando's biography on this site, that his second and third wives played the same role in the 1935 and 1962 versions of Mutiny on the Bounty, Movita Castaneda playing the love interest of Clark Gable and Tarita Teriipia playing opposite Brando in the remake. This is incorrect. I saw the film this morning, and Movita played opposite Franchot Tone in the original. The actress who played opposite Gable was clearly not Movita (who was much prettier, in my opinion) and, according to the IMDB, passed away in the 1980s (Movita is still alive and is about to turn 90). I hate misinformation and wish this myth would be placed to rest! BLU

    initials game

    That is correct! I figured Eli Wallach would be the clue, and that Marsha Mason's initials would be the most misleading. Your turn. BLU

    initials game

    Here's a clue: The movie is from the early 1970s. One of the stars only made this one film. Hope this helps! BLU

    The Essentials...

    While I would not expect Debbie Reynolds to use profane language publicly, I wouldn't classify her as an old ****, either. She's got a rather wicked sense of humor. Did anybody see her Bette Davis imitation on the Biography channel's segment on Betty Grable? It was kind of cruel (included the uneven mouth Bette had after a stroke), but she had the voice down pat and it was hilarious. I couldn't help laughing. I'm sure Debbie didn't mean to be mean. BLU
