Hi, Coop's Gal -- No love for Man of the West for Anthony Mann huh? Oh

well. ;)

 

I have LOTS of love for MANN of the West. You know that, Funny Girl.

 

Clash by Night as your least favorite Missy? You're breakin' my heart. Why

don't you list Only Angels Have Wings as your least favorite Jean film, too?

 

This one is for you:

 

Grace Kelly:

 

Favorite Film: Rear Window

Favorite Performance: To Catch a Thief (I adore Francie)

Underappreciated: Mogambo

Least Favorite Film: High Noon (Just kidding. Fourteen Hours is my least favorite, but I do like the film.)

I forgot to list a least fave for Jean! You're right about *Only Angels Have Wings*, so far it's my least fave.

 

*Clash by Night as your least favorite Missy? You're breakin' my heart.*

 

Sorry, I just didn't like that one. It was hard to even watch all the way through. Her husband was far too much of a pushover and it just didn't grab me.

 

*Grace Kelly:*

 

*Least Favorite Film: High Noon (Just kidding) *

 

If I was a fan of hers (and that's a big if) I would list that one as my least fave of hers b/c she just ain't very good in it.

A "big if"? Uh-huh.

 

In terms of performance, Grace is so-so in High Noon but it's still one of my favorite films of hers. I actually like her less in Dial 'M' for Murder. She's gorgeous in the film, though.
