Roman Holiday (1953)

 

Journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) falls in love with exotic Prince Arthur (Yul Brynner) during their adventure in Rome.

 

Come on everyone knows that it was Irving that had a crush on Joe Bradley.    Irving didn't give up $1,000 just so he didn't hurt some Princess's reputation.    :lol:

True, but having Gregory Peck with Yul Brynner would've been a more interesting combination.

But is Yul Brynner the male Audrey Hepburn - he is an exotic king not an adorable prince

I would love to see this film.

 

Would Jimmy end up with Chester Morris?

"Cleopatra" - 1934 - Cecil B. DeMille -

 

It's a comic-book retelling of the Cleopatra story - it is also one hell of a camp extravanganza.

A fun movie - the script at times does sound like a 1930's screwball comedy- Cleo's seduction of Mark Antony is spectacular production number with those panther women, the mermaids and the **** climax. Henry Wilcoxon was very hot too bad he doesn't have at least one shirtless scene.

In Disney's version of PETER PAN, Wendy realizes that Tinker Bell's jealousy is just physical attraction she is trying to avoid. After they bond together, Wendy demonstrates that same sex couples make as equally great parents as heterosexual ones as she maternally cares for The Lost Boys... even though they were never really lost since they always had each other.

 

Peter, in turn, realizes that Captain Hook's jealousy was also physical attraction and being, well, less "blessed" with just his hook. Peter gets him over his insecurities after realizing that Hook's kidnapping of Tiger Lilly was just his way of testing Peter's attraction to girls. After Tiger Lilly is returned to her father, the bromance can begin. Unfortunately Smee gets jealous and gets the fellow pirates, equally woman-less in their lives and all infatuated with both Hook and Peter, to rope the two to the main deck.
