Next to Ingrid Bergman, Simone Signoret, Jeanne Moreau, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Fanny Ardant & Catherine Deneuve Lady Deborah is a BIG fave.

I've never seen that picture of Deborah, before, she looks radiant and bright eyed. Almost like

she knows a secret she's not going to tell. Great find, Metsie!

I just noticed it's from the same photo shoot as one posted by Monik. She looks forced in the color version but in this one it looks as if the cameraman was trying to make her laugh.

I love that photo of DK. She looks like the cat who just swallowed the mouse.

 

For some strange reason, the TCM schedule said that Deborah Kerr was in *Adam and Evelyne* - but I checked my recording and it is in fact Jean Simmons. Don't know how Deborah's name made its way to the TCM.com schedule.

I can't buy Johnson as Bendrix in *End of the Affair* (not his fault, I just think he's horribly miscast) but Kerr is glorious as Sarah. She plays a woman in spiritual crisis very well, in both this and *Black Narcissus*. I think she's able to exude a kind of serene, otherworldly calm, even in the midst of the most dire situations.

*Black Narcissus* was definitely one of her best performances, imho.

We really should thank Powell & Pressburger for "discovering" Kerr. Here she is in a still from *The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp*:

Deborah Kerr in "The Sundowners" was a plain strong frontierswoman out there in the Aussie country. There was this scene in the tent with her and Robert Mitchum...

 

I'm just happy to have seen her get her honorary Academy Award. That was a great moment!

Absolutely!

 

I will have to see *Sundowners*. There's lots of Deborah Kerr movies out there that I have yet to discover; *Black Narcissus* was the first one that really made me sit up and take notice.

I haven't watched *The Sundowners* since college, so I don't remember a lot about it, except that I enjoyed watching it. I'll try and watch it again this year.

 

I also want to re-visit *The King and I*, but I'm kinda hoping that they'll release it on blu-ray soon, so maybe I'll wait on that one.
