  1. Which classic actress would you like to bring home to meet your parents? The Big M! Pull yourselves together, family members, and have a seat! Which classic actress would you like to dance with? The Big M! Which classic actress would you like to see as a Playboy centerfold? The Big M! Which classic actress would you like to wake up in bed with? The Big M! Which classic actress would you like to yell and scream at on a bad day? When I'm upset with a lady, I never scream, I just let her read my body language and say everything is ok, just relax! Whic
  2. Great question and great feedback options! For me, over the years, I've found that Oscar winners are chosen by those who have far higher standards than I have in evaluating a movie, so I tend not to be interested in those movies that comply with those exceedingly high standards, many of which I could care less about - I rate movies only on one criteria::did it entertain me to the max! So, dear reader, see below the Oscar winners that satisfied that one criteria and the others I have categorized for other reasons. Enjoy! Entertained
  3. Regarding the child star I was looking for, I indicated in an earlier reply that Charles Herbert appeared to be a match, but I suspected he wasn't because he was clearly younger than the child I remember from the late 50's. I confirmed further by looking at The Fly on a DVD and saw Herbert and knew he was not the child, again, as I had suspected. To pursue the matter, I checked a child actors web site, movieclassicskids, and found a photo for the child star Richard Eyer and looked at his filmography to further confirm and I'm nearly 100% convinced he is the one I've
  4. The child must be the one I've been referring to, but the photos I've seen online do not exactly match the appearance of the kid I'm thinking of! He must be the one, though, because his filmography is lengthy and covers the time frame I remember having seen the child actor that I remember. His filmography cites Houseboat and The Long, Long Trailer, movies I saw, but I just can't recall seeing him in those movies. I will watch the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral to confirm that the one you cite and the one I remember are the same, since he was cast
  5. This is an outstanding thread - 49 pages of responses in less than a month! The photos in this thread are truly breathtaking and merit a publication in a book of classic movie stars - anyone willing to try and overcome the red tape in getting am approval from the web administrators? Back to the Big M. I just cited in another thread that Marilyn Monroe, if she were a thoroughbred and all the other dazzling, alluring female actresses were also thoroughbreds, Monroe would be Secretariat in the Belmont Stakes and all the other dazzling ladies would be the also-rans, length
  6. And!!!!! It's not in the top 1000 in another survey (Movies You Must see Before You Die), if you can believe that! So, critics can say what they want, but, I am master of all I survey and I regard it as the funniest movie of all time and my favorite movie of all time, so take that Roger Ebert, Tom Shales, Rex Reed, Gene Shalit, et al! I respect each and every critic and read their opinions religiously, but, as master of all I survey, if I walk into a movie they recommend and I'm not intrigued within the first 20 minutes, I'm out of there! By the same toke
  7. Mumy has the angelic look of a child, while the youngster I'm referring to always had the appearance of a devilish adult waiting to cause mischief in any scenario - Philip Alford in "To Kill A Mocking Bird" has the same villainous look of the child I'm referring to. Another child closely resembling the Hitchcock actor is Rupert Osborne, so angelic is not what we are looking for. Thanks for your reply, but the search will have to continue until a senior Hitchcock TV fan sits up and thinks for just a second and voila', we'll have our answer. By the way, I just searched fo
  8. What longevity for a forum post - 2 years and counting! Here is my reply to this very long-standing post. The only child movie stars who ever appealed to me were the Little Rascals, in the following order of preference: - Stymie - Spanky - Alfalfa (his straining to sing off-tune always left me in stitches!) - Buckwheat - Wheezer - Foghorn - Joe Cobb - Farina I even enjoyed the technicolor movie version that appeared long after the Little Rascals had complete
  9. Movie fans everywhere, here is your chance to shut me up about the alluring Monroe (see breathtaking photo posted by Garbomaniac below). Here is your challenge: Post a picture of a more alluring female movie star and I'll give you and that female movie star your props!!! I happen to know you can't do it because I've seen virtually every pretender to Monroe's title and she hasn't been unseated yet, at least not in these eyes. Let's see if you can top Monroe - 500 million guys can't be wrong! I rest my case about the most alluring fema
  10. My Wicked, Wicked Ways was one of the first autobiographies I've ever read about movie stars, mainly because I prefer well-written and thoroughly researched biographies, especially those that leave no stone unturned revealing a motion picture star's life - Gable was stingy, ladies, and he enjoyed womanizing to the utmost - all ladies had to be on their guard at all times, and Lombard knew all about what he was about, believe it! The autobiography all classic fans need to read is Memoirs of an Amnesiac, Oscar Levant's revealing story of his own life - it's a cla
  11. Very interesting thread, to say the least, so I want to add to earlier list with this post. Remember, I'm not that great on word for word, so editors can pounce as soon as this one is posted. "Round up the usual suspects" Raines in Casablanca. "She's got it! By Jove, I think she's got it!", Harrison to assemblage upon hearing Hepburn's "The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain" in My Fair Lady. "I'm alive! The cat is alive!" Taylor to Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. "Mr. Christian! Mr. Christian!" Laughton bellowing for a front-and-c
  12. Thanks for requesting a clarification, since a clarification is definitely needed. For glamour and comedic talent, Monroe is the Ferrari, but for acting and singing Day is - the latter's "Que Sera Sera" is an all-time classic! Day is a favorite and always has been, so I'm glad to give her her props in this update. Thanks again for asking and have a good one!
  13. All are great, but how can you omit Monroe from a gams list? Please don't me started up in here!!!
  14. I'm always surprised at how others can remember word for word movie or other quotations, so, for those who have that ability, you'll have a field day with my responses to this inquiry. Here goes, and remember, your corrections are eagerly awaited, since I know I will not be exactly on the money for many of the following: "Funny. You think I'm funny!" Pesci in Good Fellas. "You talkin' to me!" DeNiro in Taxi Driver. "That was my first mistake..." Wallach in The Magnificent Seven. "I know you are, but what am I" Herman in Pee-Wee's Big Adv
  15. My top ten: 1. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World 2. Richard Pryor Live on Sunset Strip 3. Raising Arizona * 4. Ruthless People * 5. Tom Jones 6. Blazing Saddles 7. The Wrong Box * 8. Murder by Death * 9. You Can't Take it With You 10. I Love You to Death * Hope you enjoyed each one, and, if you missed any, you have missed a laugh riot, especially if you like black comedies (cited above with a * )! Enjoy!
  16. Read Oscar Levant's autobiography and his sequel to it and you will be enthralled by his cynicism - he was actually a very cynical person like those he portrayed in his movies! His autobiography is a best seller and should be required reading for all fans of classic movies and classic actors! Anyone else having read the autobiography might second my recommendation so that no one misses who Oscar Levant was - he was even greater than his movie performances and press clippings would have you believe - I couldn't put the book down once I started to read it and the sequel was
  17. Interesting question! Genres I absolutely love, in order of preference: - Comedies, excepting romantic comedies - Biographies of famous historical figures or celebrities - Documentary overviews of lives of famous sports figures or entertainers - Documentaries of famous events, natural phenomenon, or latest technologies - Musical variety shows, especially of the vaudeville variety (That's Entertainment, Hollywood Canteen, Ziegfield Follies, etc.) - Murder mysteries, especially of the film noi
  18. Thanks for the genre alert. I'll check those the next time post about specific genres. Have a good one!
  19. I agree with Pulp Fiction and I would add the following: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Fargo Blood Simple Raising Arizona Thanks, Coen brothers for the last 3!
  20. Marilyn Monroe! After catching my breathe, I'd try to ask her a question, but I think I would be left speechless! Then she would leave, saying Joe D. was the same way - poor fellow!!!!
  21. When I was much younger, I was told I was a spitting image of Lee Marvin, dipped in chocolate! Now that I am older, I have lost those craggy looks, and am now told by one and all that I very much resemble and behave like a jovial James Earl Jones on one of his worst hair days - oh, how I long for the Lee Marvin days! I personally feel I now look much more like a tan Wallace Beery in Pancho Villa - that's me all over, personality and all!!! No brag, just fact!!! Have a good one!!!
  22. Your Top Ten Favorite "B" Western Cowboys? Here are my ten favorites: 1. The Lone Ranger 2. The Durango Kid 3. Whip Wilson 4. Hopalong Cassidy 5. Wild Bill Elliot 6. Red Ryder 7 The Cisco Kid 8. Buck Jones 9. Tom Keane 10. Tim McCoy Surprise! Surprise! Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Lash Larue did not make my list! Is any one of them in your top ten? Lists are so ea
  23. Interesting question! For my list, I will cite the actor and the movie only, since, in most cases, I do not recall the name of the character portrayed by the actor. For listing uniformity's sake then, even though I know, for example, that George C. Scott portrayed Patton in Patton and Wallace Beery portrayed Pancho Villa in Pancho Villa and Humphrey Bogart portrayed Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny, I will still just list the actor's name and the movie - kindly understand as well that I just do not memorize character names, so I do apologize for that.
  24. A 2002 post gets a reply in 2006 - what staying power!!! I could list my favorite standups, but you want movie comics, so here goes: (By the way, if I don't cite a particular film or character, it means the comic or character actor is funny to me in any comedy or light-hearted movie.) Richard Pryor (my all-time favorite funny man in any genre!) W. C. Fields Jerry Lewis Wallace Beery Laurel and Hardy Bob Hope Robin Williams Groucho Marx Peter Sellers (Pink Panther roles only) Marie Dressler
