  1. Gregory Peck, born Eldred Gregory Peck April 5th, 1916 is my favourite actor of all-time. I have seen 99% of his movies on the big and small screen. I was part of an online Gregory Peck fan club which produced a birthday book for his 85th birthday which -since he knew the founder of our club - went to actual doorstep. I was too devastated when he died to take part in a tribute book that they did for his widow. I'm not sure what is happening with that club since I am no longer on Yahooclubs. LawrenceA suggested that I should start a thread on my favourite actor of all time. My Darling Greg -as I like to call him. As he got older and more frail I became unable to watch anything sentimental that he was in. I started to watch only his war films and westerns. It has only been in the last few years that I have been able to watch movies of other genres. Now that he has been gone for a long time I can watch things like Roman Holiday again. My favourite Gregory Peck movie of all time is The Guns of Navarone. The first Gregory Peck film I saw was To kill a Mockingbird back in grade ten after we read the book. At first, I didn't watch war movies and westerns as they historically have not been my first choice for genres. Ironic, because those account together for over 50% of Mr. Peck's career. Obviously, I could not consider myself a Gregory Peck fan and not see these films. And actually, a lot of my favourite actors and actresses made westerns and war films. Mr. Peck was the first AFI president, he was president of the Academy, he was an Academy Award winner, and he won the Jean Hersholt award for Humanitarianism.
  2. Glenn Ford Fans Here

    Hello everyone. I have mentioned several times that I am a Glenn Ford fan and that I want to see every movie he ever made. I have a high percentage of movies seen from his big screen career-past 85%. I thought it was time to start a favourite forum thread on Glenn Ford. Here are some of my favourite Glenn Ford movies in no particular order except the first film: Gilda, which is the first film I saw with him and in my opinion is the sexiest movie I've ever seen. Here are *some* of my favourites: GILDA 3:10 TO YUMA THE GAZEBO THE TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON TORPEDO RUN THE BIG HEAT DON'T GO NEAR THE WATER EXPERIMENT IN TERROR THE MONEY TRAP THE FASTEST GUN ALIVE DEAR HEART THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER IMITATION GENERAL THE SHHEPMAN IT STARTED WITH A KISS COWBOY RANSOM INTERRUPTED MELODY and many more. What are yours?
  3. People who have visited my profile page will have noticed that I am a Frank Sinatra fan. My favourite female singer of all time is Judy Garland - there are several threads about her and her co-stars. Frank Sinatra is my favourite male singer of all time. He is best known for his beautiful singing of course, and his friendships with a group of people sometimes called The Rat Pack, but according to MacLaine were actually called The Clan once Bogart died. I love his movies whether musicals or non-musicals. He was fond of saying that Gene Kelly taught him to act as well as dance as he was always a singer with a microphone before Kelly. Some of my favourite films of Sinatra's in no particular order except the first; SOME CAME RUNNING FROM HERE TO ETERNITY HIGH SOCIETY ALL THREE MOVIES WITH GENE KELLY THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE THE TENDER TRAP OCEAN'S ELEVEN PAL JOEY A HOLE IN THE HEAD Unfortunately, Miracle of the Bells was not available in Canada
  4. Inspired by dozens (?) of posts I have made about my lack of appreciation of the movie Blow Up, Eye of the Devil and the -to me - long and drawn out BORING version of the movie version of Camelot which is already long, My questions are these: 1) Could someone please explain to me the appeal of David Hemmings over his career? Why is it that no matter what the genre, I don't like his movies? 2) Are there actors who, regardless of what other people think of them, you just don't "get" their appeal? Who are they? and 3) MOST IMPORTANTLY: HOW DOES BOGEY56 CHANGE THE TITLE OF THE THREAD IN FAVOURITE PERFORMANCES? I HAVE WRITTEN INABILITY INCORRECTLY (LOVE ONE HANDED TYPING) AND WOULD LIKE TO EDIT THE TITLE
  5. Hello, I own the DVD of the Henry Fonda version of 12 Angry Men I have found that when I am watching 12 Angry Men, the anger of the characters as portrayed by actors such a s Lee J. Cobb, and Ed Begley Jr. are so compelling that I find myself getting angry even if I disagree with them. The portrayals are that compelling. What movies and performances of people who have lost their temper do you find so compelling that that you find yourself carried away, even when you disagree with their viewpoint?
  6. Robert Horton

    I didn't really like him all that much but he had a long and varied career so somebody must have. Mоvie, TV, and Stage Actоr Rоbert Hоrtоn Has Died by admin - 13 March 20160 Boуd Magers at the Western Clippings website has reported that Robert Horton, an actor best known for the western TV series “Wagon Train” has died. He was 91 уears old. Horton plaуed Flint McCullogh on “Wagon Train” from 1957-1962, quitting the series to explore other pursuits as an actor. He left the show right around the time the star, Ward Bond, died in 1961, and the series moved from NBC to ABC. He was replaced bу Robert Fuller. Horton made manу film appearances, including Lewis Milestone ’s “A Walk in the Sun” and the cult sci-fi favorite, “The Green Slime.” He was on such TV shows as “The Lone Ranger,” and also several dramatic anthologу series. On one of these, “King ’s Row,” he plaуed the role Ronald Reagan made famous in the movie version. Another interesting television appearance was as an amnesiac in the series “A Man Called Shenandoah.” Along with his TV and movie work, Horton appeared often on stage. Possessing a fine singing voice, Horton enjoуed success in musical theater, including a 330-performance run on Broadwaу in a musical version of “The Rainmaker.” Receiving manу lifetime awards for television, including the Golden Boot Award honoring western actors, Horton stopped acting in 1989 and quit making personal appearances in 2009. Horton died in a Los Angeles rehabilitation center.

  8. Hello everyone. I have noticed in the short time I have been here that there are some people who don't like repeated programming while others would love to see the same movie repeatedly. What favourite movies, actors, actresses etc. do you have that you love so much you could watch them over and over and not get tired of them?
  9. Tony Burton

    This is one of those "can't make this up" things. I'm watching Rocky III on Sundance which is running several of the films no doubt in anticipation of Sylvester Stallone's probable Oscar win tomorrow night. It's also a tribute-although unintentionally-to Tony Burton who just died. Tony Burton, ‘Rocky’ Actor, Dies at 78 Tony Burton, the actor who played Tony "Duke" Evers in the "Rocky" movies has died. He was 78. The former football player and boxer appeared alongside Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers in the first six films of the hit franchise as Apollo Creed's trainer. Weathers confirmed Burton's death in a heartfelt tweet Thursday night. "@E_Woodyard @TheSlyStallone Sad news. RIP Tony Burton. His intensity and talent helped make the Rocky movies successful. #BePeace," he wrote. Burton, from Flint, Michigan, had been in and out of the hospital for the past year, but never received an official diagnosis, his younger sister Loretta "Peaches" Kelley said, according to MLive.com. Sadly, due to his poor health, Burton wasn't able to see the film 2015 "Creed," the blockbuster film centered on the son of Rocky's rival Apollo. "There's a scene in the restaurant of that movie where his picture is on the wall," Kelley said. "We didn't talk about [Rocky] a lot. I mean we were excited, but other people were more excited. Whenever he would come home other people would just come over." Burton graduated from Flint Northern High School in 1955. He played football and made All-City and All-Valley teams as a halfback in 1954, while also leading the Vikings baseball team to a city title as a pitcher, too. As a boxer, he won two Flint Golden Gloves light heavyweight titles in 1955 and 1957, then briefly fought professionally before starting his acting career. The former athlete also served 3 1/2 years in prison for robbery at the California Institution for Men in Chino, California, but said the sentence was ultimately "productive" as he got his high school diploma and college degree while behind bars. Along with the "Rocky" franchise, Burton also appeared in "The Shining," "Stir Crazy," "The Toy" and "Assault on Precinct 13." Burton had been living in California for 30 years with his wife Rae before his death. His son, Martin, died of a heart attack at age 43 on May 8, 2014.
  10. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/buster-keaton-movies/ ClassicMovieRankings has now completed his Ultimate Movie Rankings page on AFI legend Buster Keaton. I see that he has not yet published a link on this, so I am starting a thread. This completes the top 25 actors of AFI's greatest male movie stars and now he has only one female star to go to complete the whole 50: Mary Pickford. Buster Keaton is my favourite silent movie star so I've been waiting for this one a long time.
  11. Can anyone identify this actor? He was the first messenger boy delivering a hat in "Gold Diggers Of 1933", he had a few lines, and it's not Maynard Holmes or Grady Sutton. IMDB and the AFI Catalog won't help you as his character is not included in their cast lists for "Gold Diggers of 1933" (although Sterling Holloway is identified as "Second Messenger Boy With Hat"). Any help would be appreciated! Mark Heimback-Nielsen
  12. I don't post very often, but felt compelled to after Tyrone Power's 100th birthday on Monday with nary a film to recognize his special day. "The Razor's Edge" was an "Essentials" which is great, but what about Ty's birthday? I love TCM more than anything else on TV, but I just felt sad. Did anyone else notice the omission? Thanks!
  13. Matthew Cowles

    The papers reported that Matthew Cowles, Christine Baranski's husband of 30 years and a multi-talented performer in his own right, died this week-end at 69. His "Billy Clyde Tuggle" of All My Children was one of the most deliciously devilish characters in TV history, day or night time. He also worked in prime time TV, films and wrote several plays. As both said they were happily married I’m certain she is grieving as any widow would.
