I'm glad you asked me that, lol. This afternoon SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER was on Retroplex. I always have to watch it when it plays.

Little did I know that Mom was seeing it then as well, although she told me she was only able to catch the middle. So here she goes: "So what happens at the end? I saw it once and I remember something about eating. Didn't Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor get men for Sebastian? Couldn't he get them for himself?"

 

Mom, Mom, Mom....

****!!!! Ah, yes, LADY IN CEMENT, that's the one! I guess Lainie didn't wear those boots after all. Don't you just love the pride she takes in her voluptuous, big-mama figure? You go, girl!

 

(my favorite Kazan film is MY FAVORITE YEAR, where she's a Jewish mother living in Brooklyn with her second husband, a Filipino wrestler, lol. She tries to impress Peter O'Toole when he comes over, "Welcome to my humble chapeau". Son Mark-Linn Baker: "Three years at the Sorbonne and she still can't get it right")

:D And that figure is no trick with mirrors.

Hahahahah!! She sounds like the prototype for the mother on "The Nanny".

Now that would be Oscar worthy acting. I've never seen it.

Bronxie, when you make your next tryst here, tell me...how's Mom doing and does she go to any modern movies? Jennifer Garner got a new one out ("The Invention of Lying") that I heard was pretty good.

Hiya Jackaaay,

 

I am a big Jennifer Garner fan.

 

I am a big Bronxgirl's Mom fan.

 

And I just picked that film outta the hat in terms of modern movies.

I'm a pretty big fan of Jennifer Garner myself. Just last week or so I watched her latest film to hit the video shelves, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past; with a title like that, I guess it's pretty much self-explanatory. The movie isn't all that great, but JG is. And, for what it's worth, Michael Douglas has a few fun scenes.

 

Oddly enough I watched it with my mom. She thought it was very funny. :D

Wait, it gets worse -- now I'm thinking of good old Murray Hamilton in romantic terms, "thanks" to William Csstle's underwhelming 13 FRIGHTENED GIRLS. (an afternoon at my local supermarket is more frightening)

 

At our condo complex clubhouse, they run modern films once a week, but honestly it doesn't interest me. However, Mom tries to go every Wednesday, although through the sieve of her mind the plots all get mixed up as she describes them to me. I don't know if she's familiar with Jennifer Garner. I don't think I've ever seen one of her films.

I am still waiting for Jennifer's breakout movie role. She was so great in her TV show, that I wish she would do better movies.

In all fairness, Jennifer has been in some good movies, but either she wasn't the star, or the movie didn't do very well.

 

She did a good supporting job in Juno, which was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. And she was very good in The Kingdom, which unfortunately suffered from the same fate at the box office as a lot of other movies about the war in the Middle East.
