There was no surgeon general's warning and no one thought they were harmful to one's health. No one? The tobacco companies had conducted their own studies and knew decades before the Surgeon General issued his report in 1964 that smoking was associated to bronchitis, emphysema and many forms of cancer; the companies' internal memos prove it. Of course the tobacco firms covered it up and, for decades, actually hired doctors to give testimonials in advertising that smoki

  4. That's Mandalay, which is Burma (not to be confused with Mandalay Bay, which is Las Vegas, as though anybody would), as opposed to Manderley, which is where Joan Fontaine's "I" dreamt she went back to last night.
  5. The problem with your theory is... ...that the "After" photo is of a markedly younger woman than the Before," though the photos were taken thirteen years apart. The earlier photo, in fact, looks more like Hedda Hopper, and it's far more likely it is she than Holm.
  6. Chaplin was the greater filmmaker, no doubt, able to realize more ambitious stories, but for pure, flat-out funniness, it was Keaton, hands-down.
  7. Even when it was the Dark Ages, do you think anybody ever woke up in the morning, slapped him or herself on the forehead, and exclaimed, "Hey! This is the Dark Ages!"? The year is irrelevant; everybody likes to think that the time in which they live isn't the Dark Ages, which is the point (and then everybody gets down to work proving their time is the Dark Ages[/i]: in 1852-65, it was proved via slavery, brutal European colonialism, slaughter of American Indians, the exploitation of the working classes in the Industrial Revolution; 1939-45, it was German expansionism, the Holocaust and th

  10. Mrs Iselin (Angela Lansbury) in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, truly the most chilling character ever committed to film. No one, and nothing, else even comes close.
  11. If Ford were to stick his head momentarily into a movie nowadays to say, "Hi," that would be a cameo; the struggling wanna-be actor that Ford was in 1966, did bits, as in bit parts. Back then he was a millimeter away from going back to carpentry full-time, never to be heard from again unless it was to order a new saw or hammer or a load of two-by-fours.
