Interesting. I knew Ford was very into his Irish heritage, but didn't realize he made anything like this. I'll have to watch the whole thing.

Great videos, especially the Barbara Stanwyck and the 2nd Notorious ones. The songs fit so well! And now that I have seen two tributes to Best Years of Our Lives, I guess I'll have to see it. Ive been avoiding it because I KNOW I'll cry...

 

Only complaint--I had found that Barbara video a while ago and was saving it for her birthday because it was so good! Oh well, that's not til July and it is excellent...maybe good enough to repeat?? Hmmm.

Oh you should definitely see Best Years of Our Lives (great film...and don't worry while it has sad moments I don't consider it a tragedy. Actually I find it very uplifting).

 

You know I am not very good with stars birthdays (I just know Cary Grant is in January) but by July we might have tons of pages so it won't hurt to repeat it I think. Or maybe someone will even post a new one by then. :)

In honor of Fredric March SOTM, I decided to include several versions of the transformation scene from classic Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in stead of a normal Horror Tribute:

 

1912 James Cruze

 

 

1920 Sheldon Lewis

 

 

1920 John Barrymore: (interesting sound track)

 

 

1931 Fredric March

 

 

Spencer Tracy 1941

 

 

Boris Karloff 1953 (Abbot and Costello Meet...)

Hammer Studios' take...Warning:gets a teeny bit graphic after the transformation:
