*Intended for Another*

 

David Selznick had originally purchased DARK VICTORY with Greta Garbo in mind. Garbo didn't want to do it, so he sold it to Warners who used it for Bette. Around this time, Margaret Sullavan stepped in at MGM to do THE SHOPWORN ANGEL which would have starred the late Jean Harlow.

*Violence on Screen*

 

How much trouble could The Three Stooges cause as wedding singers in TURN BACK THE CLOCK...? Their kind, gentle nature is also on display in ROCKIN' IN THE ROCKIES.

How about JACK LEMMON as a ranting, disturbed man in *Luv* , and as a ranting disturbed man in *Prisoner of Second Avenue* ?

I just watched PRISONER OF SECOND AVENUE recently. Good flick. I like the pairing of Lemmon with Bancroft.

In "Second Avenue", I was tickled to see Lemmon chase down and tackle a pre-"Rocky" Sylvester Stallone!

*Stanley Donen tells us to beware of the man in red socks.*

 

Bedazzled (1967): Peter Cook, saddled with incompetent help, turns Dudley Moore into a fly on the wall. On TCM today, for Stanley Donen’s birthday, and again April 29 and May 11.

 

Damn Yankees (1958): Ray Walston, handy with fire, turns Joe Boyd into Tab Hunter and wreaks havoc on the American League pennant race. When Old Joe exercised his escape clause, it appears that he took the broadcast rights with him.

Yes, Stallone before he was Stallone.

*Films Adapted for Stage*

 

The smash hit 42ND STREET makes it to Broadway almost fifty years later, and 9 TO 5 takes about thirty years before it becomes a stage musical.

*Alice Faye & John Payne*

 

Faye's favorite costar was Payne. They made quite a few motion pictures together, including THE GREAT AMERICAN BROADCAST and HELLO, FRISCO, HELLO.

*Fred MacMurray Directed by Mitchell Leisen*

 

Fred's off to a great start with Carole Lombard in Leisen's classic HANDS ACROSS THE TABLE. And Fred does a wonderful job with Barbara Stanwyck in the director's big hit REMEMBER THE NIGHT.

*Monte Carlo*

 

Gamblers take a chance at love along the Riviera. First, it's Jeanette MacDonald in Ernst Lubitsch's MONTE CARLO, then it's Marlene Dietrich with Vittorio de Sica in THE MONTE CARLO STORY.

*Elizabeth Taylor & Montgomery Clift*

 

The magic begins with A PLACE IN THE SUN. They had been scheduled to do REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE, which would've been very interesting.

*Good Charlotte*

 

The murder of a beloved is the theme in both pictures, though HUSH...HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE is a far cry from CHARLOTTE'S WEB.
