    Edna May Oliver Appreciation Thread

    Edna appeared in many films. One that I would love to see is "Let's Get Married" (1926) where Edna plays an intoxicated hymn-book buyer starring alongside Richard Dix. NY Times critics raved: "Edna May Oliver gives a decidedly capable performance in a relatively unimportant part. One only regrets that she is not beheld in more sequences of this effort."
  2. She may not have been beautiful, but she made up for it by her excellent acting and hilarious tongue-in-cheek humor. My favorite performance of hers is as in "David Copperfield" (1935), where as Aunt Betsy she played the strong-willed but caring aunt of the main character played by Freddie Bartholomew, and dominates her scenes in the film. Trivia: although many of her films 'sport' her with a British accent, she was actually born Edna May Nutter, November 2, 1883 in Malden, MA.

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    I have watched that one. With all respects, I have seen all I care to see of W&W - I'll pass and watch a timeless Marx Brothers or Three Stooges comedy.

    Favorite Performers By Decade

    1920's = Lon Chaney and Lillian Gish (I agree with you) 1930's = James Cagney and Joan Blondell 1940's = Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck 1950's = James Stewart & Marilyn Monroe 1960's = Paul Newman & Elizabeth Taylor 1970's = Al Pacino & Meryl Streep 1980's = Michael J. Fox & Sigourney Weaver 1990's = Tom Hanks & Julia Roberts/Meg Ryan (tie) 2000's = no opinion

    IS GARBO ALL-TIME GREATEST?

    I am not a fan, but I believe that Garbo, today, would be an icon to the Gender Neutral community.

    Jokes about the movies

    Where does Superman park? On Lois Lane. Why did the Jedi cross the road? To get to the Dark Side. Did you see the movie about the hot dog? It was an Oscar weiner.

    Intriguing Low Life Characters

    Travis Bickle from "Taxi Driver" (1976) One truly disturbed low-life M*****F*****!

    Hedy Lamarr

    I would add Maureen O'Hara to that list. Her appearance as a sensual, beautiful and intoxicating Esmeralda opposite Charles Laughton (in the main role) has got to be the apex of Hollywood's glamour. Especially, the scene in the tower after Quasimodo has rescued her, she realizes the 'monster' is actually a human being.

    Overrated talents ?

    You're velcome. But Jane Russell untalented? Try telling that to Howard Hughes! 😈 😊

    Overrated talents ?

    Precisely - I don't dislike her, but I do not seek out films to watch her 'acting'.

    Overrated talents ?

    Grace Kelly Hollywood's most sophisticated ice queen. Slept her way to the top, but because of her subsequent royal title her scandals were largely covered up and forgotten. But becoming a princess was no small feat for Kelly, as her family had to fork up a $2 million dowry!

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    I don't see the resemblance with Spence at all, but thanks for your attempt at civility. BTW it would have been more effective writing had you emphasized WASTED: "Anyone who's ever wasted their time watching Fox news might have." Prolly won't be chatting with you again. Ta ta...

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    If you don't mind - I'd like to keep Politics out of my posts. This is the General Discussions Board, and my post is completely appropriate... yours is OT and not. I would much rather you lambast me re my opinion re W&W. I would have made the same comparison had someone looked like CNN's Don 'Easy Squeezy' Lemon. 😊

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    First off let me say that I have seen most of Wheeler and Woolsey's films... count me as NOT A FAN. 👎 I believe that their attempts at humor were always so forced and scripted that they were just UNFUNNY. And to add to their detriment, their supporting cast usually had no interesting, talented, or attractive characters. Lines that were supposed to be funny MAY have been funny in 1937, but their material has been done so often and better by comedy teams like the Three Stooges, the Marx Brothers, or even Abbott & Costello, that they are just tired old routines to me. BTW: has anyone else noticed the resemblance of Bert Wheeler and... Brian Kilmeade of Fox News?
  15. Although I highly doubt TCM will run it, I would really like to see the sequel: 😛
