    James Dean Discussion

    James Dean would have been 83 years old today. Was watching East of Eden again and marvel at how exceptional he was in that film. I think he had great acting ability and wonder what types of roles he could have played as he grew older. Unfortunately, we'll never know. I think he had a lot of talent and really could have become one of the greatest. Wonder what he would have looked like at 83 years old. Amazing to think that almost 60 years after his passing, he is still remembered as a legend and icon. What are your thoughts of this actor?

    A Discussion of William Holden

    So thrilled to see the thread resurrected. Thank you! William Holden was one of my favorite actors. As Tom alluded to, I didn't much care for William Holden's very early work - he seemed like a "cute boy", but nothing special and the movies weren't that interesting and he seemed a bit stiff. I was blown away when I saw him in "Sunset Boulevard". He should have won an Oscar for Best Actor for that film. A wonderful film and performance by William Holden. Also, he looked stunningly handsome in that film. One of the best looking actors I've ever seen. After Sunset Boulevard, he had many films that were top notch. I thought Stalag 17 was a tremendous film and he was exceptional in that movie. William Holden was just a terrific actor, and very sexy and handsome. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

    James Dean

    Bumping this thread...I am reading a bio called Little Boy Lost on James Dean - it's one of the best bios I've read. I know there are lots of bios on James Dean...any other good ones on him I can read?

    are you sure that photo of Randolph Scott is his wife walking next to him? I thought it was his mother or a stranger walking next to him. Look how far apart they are...like they don't even know each other. I liked Randolph Scott and thought he was a good actor and very handsome too. Edited by: movielover11 on Jan 23, 2014 9:30 PM

    Which Actors SCARE You The Most?

    The guy in the photo doesn't scare me, but the lady does. Is that Barbara Stanwyck? Also put Barbra Streisand on my scary list too. Don't know how James Brolin can wake up next to her without having nightmares.

    Which Actors SCARE You The Most?

    LOL....no, I wasn't scared of Bob Denver or Stan Laurel. I liked Bob Denver's songs like Rocky Mountain Hight and Annie's Song and Take Me Home Country Road. I don't know S.Z. Sakall though. To tell ya the truth, Ingrid Bergman kinda scared me.

    Which Actors SCARE You The Most?

    LOL Tom - I guess I do. James Mason was a guy who looked nasty to me - very frightening - couldn't stand him.

    Speaking of Gloria Swanson, I should have put her on the top of my list for who scares me most.

    The Underrated Fifties

    Haven't read through the thread, but don't think the 50's would be underrated for film work. Anyway, I love some 1950's films...such as: On the Waterfront From Here to Eternity 12 Angry Men Streetcar Named Desire East of Eden Blackboard Jungle Sunset Boulevard

    Boy, Gene Kelly Was A Real Jerk!!

    I thought Gene Kelly was a great dancer and made some excellent films. Why would anyone really care what he was like off the screen?

    James Dean

    I thought although, Julie Harris was 29 when the film was made, she looked older than that - about 40. Julie Harris was a good actress and nice person, but I thought she was totally miscast in this role. Jo Van Fleet was very good in her role and James Dean gave a very good performance, but the rest of the cast didn't really impress me. Raymond Massey seemed too stiff and rehearsed as the father. I think of the three films Dean made, East of Eden was his best.

    I think the photo was from a movie called The Chase - Marlon and Jocelyn were in the film. Didn't realize how much they looked alike.
