  3. Well, Bronxgirl, I don't mind his voice at all. To me, it's much, much less annoying than say, Ned Sparks or Andy Devine (I've got nothing against these guys, by the way)! As Dargo mentioned earlier, Craig was in "The Strip" which starred Mickey Rooney. Craig also played with Rooney in "The Human Comedy", which was made in 1943 and featured a good supporting cast all the way around. Craig was in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes" with Edward G. Robinson, Agnes Moorehead, Margaret O'Brien, Frances Gifford, and Butch Jenkins. He was also the male lead in "Lost Angel" with Margaret O'Brien,

  4. Last night I watched CARMEN JONES '54 on TCM. I'm a Dandridge/Bizet/Preminger fan so figured this would be good. I was turned off by the vocal dubbing and offended by the racist pronunciations & grammar used. (exactly like Charlie Chan movies) I wasn't for Carmen nor the charactor played by handsome Harry Belefonte, just didn't like them. Very sorry for my personal reaction, maybe others would like this film. It was visually beautiful, well photographed. I absolutely LOVED Saul Bass' opening credits of a red flame over the outline of a rose-simple, elegant, wonderful!

  5. This is SO ridiculous. Have they lost their minds??? Will picture nominations be cancelled if they dont follow the rules after the votes come in? Or will pictures be declared ineligible before voting begins? Sorry, you can't vote for this film! The Academy has become a laughingstock. It's no wonder few people watch the show anymore.

  6. The red/right-wing aka "Deplorable" states lead the country in all the wrong statistics. One of the stats, which is a measure of living conditions worldwide, is the infant mortality rate. The ten states with the worst rates are "conservative" states. They drag America's ranking down, worldwide. If the liberal "blue" states, who have the best quality of life ranking in every regard, didn't exist, America would rank among Chad and Somalia. Life expectancy by state is another of many measures by which that quality of life is measured. The five states with the best rates (people living longes

  9. You people supporting Trump and his policies, and claiming to be Christians, are stepping on everything Jesus Christ taught. You care not about the welfare of your fellow humans, just like Trump. You are not Christians anymore, but Trumpians! A religion of Hate!!

  10. DNA ancestry testing is fine and dandy. Yet that only gives you a 99.9% chance that you're related to Mickey Rooney. But there's one sure fire 100% way of knowing. Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night shouting, "Hey, kids, let's put on a show!"? If so, BINGO! You've got the blood of the Mickster in you!

  11. I realize I'm a few days late, but I watched Danger Signal last night. I think this is a movie that I started watching the last time it was on, because the beginning seemed familiar. Then, I must have fallen asleep or something, because the remaining 3/4 of the film was new to me. Anyway. 1) Zachary Scott. I can't decide if I think he's attractive or not. Sometimes he is, and sometimes he's goofy looking. With his eyes and long eyelashes, at times he reminded me of a big version of little Scotty Beckett (not what actual grown Scotty Beckett grew up to look like) with a mustache.

  16. This is the greatest film of all time, from the greatest director of all time, starring the greatest Swedish actor of all time, featuring the greatest special effects of all time, along with the greatest script of all time. Now the costumes needed just a bit of work, but why nitpick. Our story opens with Criswell (the greatest psychic of all time, sporting the greatest coiffure of all time) setting the stage for the spine-tingling story about to be played out before us. From there, we get tender scenes of Bela Lugosi, the greatest bloodsucker of all time, mourning at his dead wife’s funer

  17. It seems like just yesterday that she was hosting Masterpiece Theater, and maybe only a few days before, she was my girl crush. My sister and I used to play Avengers in the backyard. She was Steed (she always liked the guy roles), and I was Mrs. Peel. My dream was to grow up tall and slender so I could wear that catsuit and all those other mod clothes. No such luck -- I stopped growing at 5'2". She was a classy lady and a great actress. I think I enjoyed her most in Bleak House.

  18. The Oscars are going to PC themselves right into obsolescence. Its not their job to dictate how a movies should be made. That's the job of the viewing public. Their job is to simply vote on movies. They can't seem to get that right either. You can look at past Best Picture winners and see they were also very popular at the box office. Not anymore. Now its whatever looks artistic whomever they feel sorry for this year. They started with eliminating streaming movies and now this. They are more into saving their own old system than celebrating good movies. Just like so man

  19. Read where the GOPers are now blaming Lindsay Graham for Trump confessing all to Bob Woodward. Yes, that Lindsay Graham. Theory is that Trump complained about Woodward not interviewing him for his 2018 book, so Lindsay told Trump to contact Woodward and get his side in this one. Of course, how did Lindsay know that Woodward was so much smarter than Trump and that Trump was dumb enough to think he could manipulate Woodward?

  20. Lou Costello and Marjorie Reynolds in THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES. In perhaps the most unusual film they made Abbott and Costello do not work as a team. Beginning in American Revolutionary War times Lou plays a tinker who, along with Marjorie Reynolds, is shot down by American troops, their bodies dumped into a well as they are unjustly branded traitors. The story then changes to modern times (1946) with Costello and Reynolds as ghosts still desiring, after all those years, to prove their innocence. There's an unexpected sweetness to this film and, although sentimental, that sentiment is, tha

  29. DONALD PLEASANCE was actually a really good actor (and a nice man), but damned if he was not an even BIGGER "HOE FO' THE DOUGH" than MICHAEL CAINE. I 100% believe that he would have done a snuff film if you paid him enough and didn't take out taxes.

  30. Interesting..... So what "iron clad" proof can you provide that it was LIBERALS that caused the wildfires? I thought( according to the right) that liberals were too busy wasting taxpayer's money on feeding hungry children of the poverty stricken , trying to provide safe, warm and adequate shelter for the homeless and proper clothing for other financially strapped citizens, you know, all the kind of "Christian" acts that the right( who claim moral superiority) refuse to do.

  36. What does liberalism mean? Liberalism, political doctrine that takes protecting and enhancing the freedom of the individual to be the central problem of politics. Liberals typically believe that government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others, but they also recognize that government itself can pose a threat to liberty.

  37. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I know Dargo is disdainful of James Craig, one of my favorite actors. And Miss Wonderley doesn't think Zachary Scott is swoon-worthy. He was awesome in "The Mask of Dimitrious", but like the ending of "Danger Signal", the last minute or so of the film left a bad taste in my mouth. I mean, in "The Mask of Dimitrious", Scott comes across as cold, calculating, and disturbingly efficient in getting good-hearted people to aid him in his dastardly schemes that benefit him, but destroys them! But at the end of the film, Scott gets pushed around by

  39. Yes, I agree. It was more soap opera than noir, until Emerson makes her decision. But I knew then that the code wouldn't let her go there (unless punished). The ending was so phony and tacked on. I also felt Mona Freeman's character was so nasty and a bit unbelievable in her character arc. And the mother was ok with her daughters (one very young) battling for the same man IN THE SAME HOUSE? I figured the book's ending DID go there and I was right (when Eddie did his wrap up).

  46. Considering pretty much everything I've always felt about Diana Rigg has already been said earlier in this thread, well okay, everything but the thought that I always wished she done much more big screen work once she left The Avengers series, I'll now just add that my favorite episode of that series, or at least the one that has always stuck in my mind since I watched it first-run on American television in March of 1966 (and at the very impressionable age of 14), was this one...
