  1. I have two questions... Totally off the wall. This is a last resort, but I have to know -- Why does Bacall call Bogie "Steve" throughout To Have and Have Not when his name is Harry? Just a nickname? Maybe I missed something... I searched the forum first, but if anyone could redirect me to a previous thread that'd be fine. Question #2: Why, especially during early talkies, does the film speed increase when fights break out or horses are running? Or cars are speeding? I actually thought it was because the camerman was spinning the crank thingy (technical term, I know) faster during the e
  2. I saw the movie! :x :x :x You know, FA is quite small but has a very muscular physique! Loved all of his dances in the guardhouse, he was so adorable in his uniform... I don't get into Rita much but I enjoyed her in this one. Does anyone know what Fred's weight was while filming this one? I was wondering how he compared to Frank Sinatra, and who was smaller (Frank was SO tiny in the 40's!).
  3. Oh, boy! I'm definately going to record it, I cannot weight to see this one... I just officially went back to school this evening (and have just gotten home). But I get out within the next few weeks, for summer! Can't wait to give my thoughts on the film tomorrow... Danny
  4. Thanks so much for all the info on the film and the photos, how fantastic! :x I can't wait to see it tonight! I get to see FA's bare legs? Well, this really will be something I need to pay close attention to. I actually don't Hayworth that much, either, greer. I will be sure to try to give it a look tonight... Thanks for all the replies, hope everyone is well. I go back to school tonight Darn.
  5. I have on my schedule (sorry for any inconsistencies) that one of Fred's films are coming on tomorrow night, 11:30 PM: You'll Never Get Rich, 1941 I know nothing about it and was wondering if it had been mentioned here before (?).
  6. Yeah, I actually really love Mr. Astaire but thinking about him in that one particular scene is the thing nightmares are made of. This is the one instance where it really would not work switching the two!
  7. Must have posted in the wrong place... Pardon me! Message was edited by: bobhopefan1940
  8. I have to agree with all of you! The legs are sexy, everything about Gene is sexy... And I always thought him with Judy was just the best pairing. They seem to enjoy one another quite a bit. What about the scene in this where he wears the short costume? Yikes I've never seen such beautiful gams on a guy! This would certainly be an odd role for Fred Astaire :0 Anyone think he could pull it off?
  9. Thanks, 'Scope. Let's just resort it to a big misunderstanding!
  10. Hey fellas, I've never fought on these forums and I don't intend to now. So if you are going to go through the whole "troll" phenomenon, take it else where. I appreciate your opinions on the flick, and if you don't like it say so and then defend your opinion. Nothing wrong with that, but must we resort to name calling? I mean where does it get us? 'Scope and Spencer, you've always respected my threads and I have never had a problem from you. I hope the both of you will let it lie and keep to the intended subject matter. Thanks. bhf1940

I have no idea why people did not like this movie when it was first released, perhaps it was too clever? Too progressive? Gene Kelly was a bit psychotic looking, with the mustache and longer hair But I love it... lol. Non
  12. [nobr]Well, of the ones I have seen, Pilot #5 is probably my least favorite. I don't even know why that is, I love Van Johnson and adore Franchot Tone... [/nobr] [nobr][/nobr] [nobr]The Three Musketeers is not one of my favorites either, but I think it was because all of the other Musketeers I didn't care in the least for. It's worth a view just for Kelly's adorable smile at the end![/nobr] [nobr]The Devil Makes Three is definately worth a look, very good drama that I enjoyed quite a bit. A little hard to follow at times...[/nobr] [nobr][/nobr] Black Hand is worth a look! Very go
  13. Hi kat! Yes, there are so many great funny moments from The Pirate... I don't think it ever takes itself too seriously. One of my favorite funny moments is when Garland is pretending to not know Macoco is Serafin, and she starts talking badly about his acting. Kelly is so funny when he says he wished he had a review on him while patting himself down. Then, when he finally does get knocked out, she picks him up and says something a little positive about his acting, and he comes to life.
  14. > In general, Bob all the way. I'll help > bobhopefan1940 hijack the thread lol, Oh no - You don't know what you are saying! I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy... I could go on and on, but I'll save that for the "Night Must Fall" live journal :x Hey, anyone got any fave D. Powell movies I should check out? Just curious...
  15. I could so hi-jack this thread right now But I won't.
  16. I just saw Thrill Of A Romance and loved it, but I am kind of partial to Van I wrote a reply to PF, but it obviously didn't register... But I agreed totally with your oppinion on The Pirate. And have to say one of my favorite dance sequences was the last one just before Serafin was suppose to be executed. I think it is such a seductive dance. B-) As for Esther Williams, I love her! She was such a great team with Kelly in Take Me Out To The Ballgame!
  17. [nobr]I don't even need words to answer this question:[/nobr] [nobr][/nobr] [nobr]Um... I actually like Dick Powell. I'm not sure I could state a memorable opinion of him, though; since I have only seen a select few movies. I love Bobby M. :x I cannot think of someone I enjoy watching on screen more than Robert. He is absolutely the most adorable creature I have ever laid eyes on.[/nobr] [nobr]And stoney, the creepy role you are referring to I believe is his murderous Irish characterization in 1937's Night Must Fall (which I loved by the way). I saw The Divorcee for the first time
  18. Hi Anne! I would say you are in the majority with your oppinion on The Pirate... Most really think it is quite freaky (especially GK's style and appearance). Really, I have to be honest, I have stated it before but anything GK wears is alright with me. I just find him incredibly attractive. I think it is because all my life I grew up thinking male dancers were not masculine, then when I saw GK dance for the first time I thought it was the hottest thing I'd ever seen. I think GK did have a large ego, but I also think he wore tight clothing to appear more masculine in order to contradict ste
  19. Just wanted to thank coopsgirl (and all who contribute to this thread day in and day out) for those beautiful and stunning pics of Mr. Cooper!

Thanks so much. Hate I missed the intro but at least I know what I missed...
  21. Hey, 'scope: Did you catch what Robert Osbourne said at the beginning of The Pirate or are you watching? I missed the intro, curious if anything we discussed here had been mentioned (?).
  22. This is very troubling for me, because I have a great many dogs who eat food at a high rate. So by the time I caught wind of the recall, my dogs' had already eaten all the food... But luckily they are all doing well, I hope this is the last we hear of a recall! Boy, it seems eating even for the little animals is becoming a dangerous thing...
  23. > i had heard--or read somewhere-- that it was kelly's > solo that was considered to erotic and had to be > toned down and reshot. this is the first time i'm > hearing about a garland-kelly duet being cut from > this film!! Well, from what I understand the whole dance came about during the "Mac The Black" number, when Judy's character is under hypnosis. Judy and Gene were suppose to dance together there, performing "Voodoo," but then once that was thrown out it was replaced with "Mack the Black." If you watch it tonight, notice how Gene stays out of the number entirely.
