Thanks for the tip, Laffite. I will most definitely be looking for Joyce Reynolds. According to my schedule, *Janie* is on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 8:30 am.

Hey there, Greer's girl!

 

I did like Mr. Buddwing, surprisingly. Those kind of amnesia/mind game type movies don't always appeal to me, but James Garner really did a good job making you feel his anxiety and confusion. I also really liked Jean Simmons, which is unusual for me. She played someone so against what she usually plays, right down to the blond hair! I thought she was very good. I thought the movie was really well done, and not too confusing to follow, for that type of film. I actually think one of those stills I posted of Suzanne might be Katherine Ross, but I simply couldn't tell, and I couldn't remember the scenes in the movie well enough to decide. I liked it anyway, and Katherine is a brunette too, so I guess it's OK.

 

One thing, though. I missed the very end! Of all the movies to not find out what happened..... I hope they show it again soon, so I can see it all the way through! I really need to know how everything turned out......

Lovely pictures of Miss Paget, thank you, Jackie. I don't know why she was always being cast

as a Native American or "exotic" type, lol, her looks to me are very European.

 

I like her best as a dark brunette.

I was wondering that, myself. As I was going through those pics, I was thinking she looks closer to Arlene Dahl or maybe Dana Wynter than a native American or a tropical siren. Thanks for those gorgeous photos! I am glad you had some that were less B-movie..... :)

She (Debra P) was prettier in motion pictures than still photos I think.

 

In honor of you-know-what, here are some pix of Joanne Dru:

hey sweet wendy!

actually i agree with you. im not usually a Jean Simmons fan, but i liked her in Buddwing. i loved seeing Angela Lansbury as a supporting character. she did an awesome job as that crazy, kinda drunk looking girl from the past. heehee! she can do anything! i just love her! i do have to say, this isnt my favorite James Garner movie, but he makes it believable and makes your heart feel for him and his lost state of mind.

 

One thing, though. I missed the very end! Of all the movies to not find out what happened..... I hope they show it again soon, so I can see it all the way through! I really need to know how everything turned out......

 

i hope you get to watch the rest of the movie! TCM needs to show it again. its a rather interesting ending. i liked it.

Hey there, my little chickadee!

 

I do like to see Angela Lansbury as a supporting player in almost everything. My husband was watching her in something, I can't remember .... maybe The Harvey Girls? He asked me "who is that?" (he only says that when he thinks someone is pretty) and I said Angela Lansbury and he says no "that pretty one, the blond." adn I said, "yeah, that's Angela Lansbury." Well, I thought he was going to have a heart attack, since he only really knows her from Murder, She Wrote. I think it was the idea of thinking Jessica Fletcher was pretty that got him....

Then I bet you're prettier. :)

 

One of my favorite Hitchcock leading ladies

was the very non-blonde, Margaret Lockwood,

who will be starring with James Mason in the

upcoming TCM movie, THE WICKED LADY (Thursday,

Sept. 17 at 8:00 pm EST). I've never seen

this movie but I've heard it's good; I'm intrigued

by the premise.

 

Some candid photos of Margaret at home

and on various sets, plus some stills from

The Wicked Lady with James Mason and

Michael Rennie:
