Obscure films with well-known stars

77 posts in this topic

Though it's not totally obscure, I think THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY would fit this category. Linda Hunt did win an Oscar for her performance along side Sigourney Weaver and Mel Gibson. However, many people have never heard of the film. It's in my top ten as I've mentioned before on this site.

I just watched Lana Turner in A LIFE OF HER OWN (1950).

Not a perfect presentation of her, but darned good, and VERY 1950!

Fun things included the price for a proper apartment in Manhattan, $3,000 yearly.(What would it be now? $5,000 rental---per month?)

Of course, an affair with a married man (Ray Milland) is doomed under the "Code", but the movie teaches some great life-lessons and Lana is a darned good actress in anything.

 

Yes, I think this is one of Lana's better performances. I wish the film were better known. Not the usual product that MGM put out at the time. (The times were a-changing with Dore Schary at the helm)..
