"The Great Dan Patch" is such a good movie and is rarely shown anymore. And it's one of my favorite screen pairings - Gail Russell and Dennis O'Keefe.

Yes, every time TCM overplays Bette Davis and Cary Grant, people like Gail Russell and Dennis O'Keefe become more and more forgotten.

I love this thread. Don't you, Marsha? I like to study the meaning of names and their origins. So it's fun to see how names are used in titles of films.

I agree....I love this thread.  Just thinking of film titles with the same name being used gives your brain cells a real workout....and it's fun.
