Seriously, she was a sex goddess.

 

Has the musicalized version of "Miss Sadie Thompson" ever been released?

I'm not sure, Ray. I have to admit I like her "against type" as an icy blonde in THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI.

Concerning the Other Sources for Classic Films from any era.

 

For those with a high speed internet connection and a cable TV modem with WiFi, there's an extensive amount of Films &TV programs available on Internet Archives, Youtube, Dailymotion, etc., etc., stuff thats, you'd think, dropped off the face of the earth. 

 

Some in excellent HD presentations, that you don't have to watch on a computer screen.

 

You can watch on your TV (if you have modern flat screen TV most of these all have multiple ways of connecting, i.e., coaxial cable,  HDMI, Composite Video (RCA jack plug connections). If you buy a Chromecast ($30 roughly), and get the free app online, anything you bring up on a tab on your computer screen you can cast it to the TV. You can still work, search, etc., on other things while casting.

 

I've watched Highway Dragnet (1954), Carney (1980), Jailbait (1952), The Violent Years (1954), The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961) some old TV episodes of Darren McGavin's The Outsider,  the rare out of print experimental film The Savage Eye (1960). Even some Public Libraries have film archives for streaming. Anything you can think out you can look for on line. You'd be surprised what you can find.

 

It opens up a whole new realm of possibilities.

Thanks. The reason I don't include YouTube or DailyMotion on this thread is because I might mention a title and by the time someone reads my post and logs on to YT or DM, it could have been taken down due to a copyright violation. So I tend to stick with TCM, Hulu, FilmStruck and Amazon Prime. I don't subscribe to Netflix so I am not sure what their service currently offers.

 

The Internet Archives which you mentioned is an excellent source for titles in the public domain.

I HATE her hair in that movie.  That great, wavy long red hair - gone.  Shame on you, Orson Welles.

I didn't know she was in so many films and I haven't see any of the above ones.

 

The only films I have seen her in are Pride and Prejudice, Raw Deal and Smash-Up, the story of a Women.     (well also Easy Living the Jean Arthur film, but Marsha is cast a 'girl' and I don't remember her).

 

 Also she was in the business  a lot longer then I assumed,  getting her start at 18, in 1937 and very regular roles until 1960.

She appeared at a film festival in Los Angeles in early September 2016 at the age of 98 (almost 99). They screened the film she is most proud of making and did a q-and-a about it. It was Columbia's war drama NONE SHALL ESCAPE, which I'm hoping TCM airs at some point.

She was an MGM contract player for many years.

 

She's terrific in "Pride and Prejudice" and "Music For Millions".

Yea,  this is what I found out yesterday.     As much as I know about studio-era films there is always more to learn.   Looks like I may have another 'favorite' actress to add to my ever growing list!    :D

What,  no Arizona the Jean Arthur,  William Holden, Warren William film?     (yea, I know a Columbia Pictures film).     Mostly I'm joking here,  just wishing to post a reply to see if I can!  Glad to see the new format isn't hindering you since your post are always informative.
