So there’s a new Disney streaming service, which I’ll want in addition to Netflix, and Prime, and Hulu, and Vudu, and CBS All Access, and HBO Now, and…

eesh

 

If only a company combined all these services—bundled them, if you will—to save me some hassle/money.

:rolleyes:

I am not in favor of bundling. I like the freedom of being able to pick and choose (add and drop) what I want on my own terms. I don't want a middleman company trying to profit with packages that include platforms I don't want but have to pay for to get what I really want. No, that's why I left cable.

Yeah, his early stuff was dire.

He survived the blacklist too (he was grey-listed). After Warners dropped him, he seemed to keep bouncing back.

He was very appealing. So was his son.

Yes, I think there was a not-so-submerged bisexual quality about both of them...and in Hollywood that helps keep a career going.

The son should have had a stronger film career. I remember him from an arc on Falcon Crest and he played a deranged character. He was very memorable.

I will always remember Edward Albert from "Butterflies Are Free", the film which should have made him a movie star.

Yes, he started off with a bang (though I wish Keir Dullea had done the film version for that one).

Shirley Temple did have a second career in Hollywood - late teens, early twenties, I presume.

Yes. She was under contract with David Selznick in the 40s, after she left Fox. Her last movie was in 1949, when her contract with Selznick ended. But she did a TV series in the 50s. So her career on screen continued for awhile.

I really enjoyed Shirley's acting in her teenage and young adult years, more so than her childhood roles.

She was fantastic in THE BACHELOR AND THE BOBBYSOXER and SINCE YOU WENT AWAY, and in I'LL BE SEEING YOU, she showed great emotional range in the scene where she apologizes to Ginger Rogers for inadvertently informing Joseph Cotton of the fact that Rogers is serving a prison sentence.

A KISS FOR CORLISS is fun, too.

I like THAT HAGEN GIRL. It had a troubled production history but performed well at the box office. Something about it works for me. It really conveys the small-town attitudes of the post-war era. And I think it's photographed very well. Plus it's interesting to see her working with Ronald Reagan and with Lois Maxwell (who would become Miss Moneypenny in the Bond franchise).
