You're welcome. I think the screenwriter for THE IRON PETTICOAT had previously worked on the script for COMRADE X, a Hedy Lamarr picture that borrowed heavily from NINOTCHKA. So obviously, NINOTCHKA was a very influential movie and its plot was recycled several times.

 

Ninotchka.....it's the movie gift that keeps on giving.  :D

 

I've never seen The Iron Petticoat, so I had no idea what it was about.  I've seen it on the TCM schedule before, though.  I don't know how I could have missed this one.  Katherine Hepburn and Bob Hope in the same movie?  Really??  I need to watch it just to see those two together.

Yes, make sure you catch it...because it probably will not be scheduled again for awhile.

I didn't realize Jack Carson had been from Canada.

Leslie Nielsen was also from Canada. And so is actress Susan Clark.

I will post the next category in the morning. Thanks for such a fun discussion!

 

I wrote myself a note as a reminder!

:)

 

You're welcome for the fun discussion.  I've enjoyed all the discussions that we've had on this thread.

I didn't know that ANY of these stars were from Canada!  (Well, except for Marie Dressler and Mary Pickford.)

I had forgotten about Pickford and about Glenn Ford.

As for more recent stars, I think Michael J. Fox is from Alberta.

Yvonne De Carlo

 

Adore her. She's someone TCM should create a primetime spotlight for...definitely deserves a tribute of some kind.

One shot returns to acting

JAMES CAGNEY in RAGTIME. He hadn't starred in a film for twenty years when he made his last one in 1981.

CLAUDETTE COLBERT in THE TWO MRS. GRENVILLES. It had been 26 years since she had been in a movie, when she came out of retirement for this one at the end of her career.

I love her, too.  I'm all for an Yvonne De Carlo tribute!  (I know TCM couldn't do this, but it would be great if they could show a few episodes of The Munsters along with the movies.)

Yes, I did.  I recorded it and watched it earlier today.  I didn't exactly enjoy the movie, but I'm still glad that I got a chance to see it.

George "Spanky" McFarland in The Aurora Encounter.  He hadn't been in a movie in 42 years.  The Aurora Encounter was actually his second-to-last chance.  He later appeared as himself on an episode of Cheers.

Thanks again for letting me know that it was going to be on.  Hearing Katharine Hepburn's ridiculous Russian accent was worth the price of admission.

I suppose there is a reason she never wanted to discuss this particular film. She regretted making it, for a variety of reasons.

Yes, what a huge movie and soundtrack that was! I think a second soundtrack was released, too.

There was.  I wore out my cassettes of both soundtracks.
