    Dramatic Stars in Comedies

    The underrated It's Love I'm After had three stars better known for their dramatic work--Bette Davis, Leslie Howard and Olivia de Havilland--doing quite nicely.

    Welcome to the Classic Cinema College

    Robert Donat, Professor of Education Renowned for his many years of teaching Latin at a boy's school, he credits his late wife for making him a better man; his work since has made him beloved to nearly every pupil at the school. He has dedicated his life to teaching and now regularly lectures on it here on campus. Peter O'Toole, Professor of English History, specializing in England's early monarchy and military involvement in WWI, particularly in the Middle East. One of Prof. O'Toole's most famous subjects is Henry II, having done two serious studies that met with great acclaim. He also is an expert on desert warfare. An enigmatic man, he is nonetheless apt to show up late at classes in a disorderly state.

    The Eyes Have It

    Katharine Hepburn expressed so much in Woman of the Year with those eyes. Charlie Chaplin could give aching looks to the girl he loved in almost any of his movies, especially in City Lights, and Peter O'Toole had such a haunting pair, used to great effect in Lawrence of Arabia.

    I like 'em both! Bette was the one who introduced me to Joan with TCM's Bette/Joan boxsets promo night last year, though Joan eventually came out on top, and still is today.

    Astaire & Rogers Collection Vol. 2 on 10/17

    Astaire and Rogers Ultimate Collector's Edition... yum. But it's too pricey for me, so I may get one or the other of the two collections instead. Message was edited by: BacallFan

    Fantasy Films

    Great topic, GarboManiac! The Uninvited is my favorite fantasy, if it's not creepy enough to be a horror movie, being a romantic sort of ghost story. From the Earth To the Moon--though it's closer to a costume sci-fi movie--is a slightly-guilty pleasure of a fantasy film for me. Loved Joseph Cotten and George Sanders, though.

    The Most Handsome Actors!

    My vote for the most handsome goes to Gregory Peck, runners-up are Cary Grant (of course) and Montgomery Clift, pre-auto accident.
  11. Great list, I'd watch to see their picks, excepting maybe Adam Sandler... though I think Bill Cosby's already been a guest programmer, but I wasn't around to see it.

    Underrated Actors

    Joseph Cotten and William Powell don't seem to get much mention, outside of Citizen Kane and The Thin Man. Dana Andrews is very good in everything I've seen him in, though there's not much attention paid of his work.

    Title of this movie?

    That's very likely the film Sorry, Wrong Number, made in 1948 with Barbara Stanwyck and Burt Lancaster.
  14. Try - it's got biographies, birth-death dates, and in the case of living stars, should tell you where they are. You might take a look at the filmography to see if they've been working recently, too. Web searches for particular stars are good ideas also. Message was edited by: BacallFan

    The Scapegoat has appeared at least twice on TCM during the past year, though I never caught it.
