  1. I never though about the teeth situation, but I may have to investigate.


    I enjoyed Mr. Widmark's hard-driving RR man in How The West Was Won,

    and his characters in Don't Bother to Knock, and his first breakout

    role in Kiss of Death .


    Some other favorites were Cold, Sassy Tree and Madigan.


    Plus most folks where I live enjoyed his Bowie role in The Alamo.

  2. I do see the Anne Hathaway/Allyn Anne McClerie resemblance.


    Johnm, I know that you're not a big Howard fan, but I hope you enjoyed CJ.


    Maybe if Doris had been Annie, there might not have been a Calamity Jane.

    Also, maybe Judy didn't feel right for Annie from the start. Any info, anyone?


    But I feel Annie Get Your Gun was a great Betty Hutton showcase, and

    her interview with Robert Osborne has always been a favorite of mine

    since it aired.


    But CJ had so many of the great character actors from the period: Dick Wesson,

    Paul Harvey, Chubby Johnson, Forrest Taylor..


    Miss Day has cited Calamity Jane as one of her personal favorites.

    She also lowered her register after seeing the dailies when she was

    costumed in buckskins and realized that her speaking voice was too

    soft and feminine.

  3. One of my faves.


    I even love the outside "Harry" number.

    Doris Day was a phenomena in this. Her bar set on the "WIndy City"

    was great.


    One of my all-time faves was Howard Keel singing to Katie's portrait-

    "My Love is Higher Than a Hawk" I used to sing this to my son

    as a lullaby before he went to see the sandman...


    The man who played Francis Fryer, his name escapes me,

    was so entertaining...but he came to a tragic end.


    "Lost My Heart in the Black Hills" is an easy sing-a-long.


    I wish Robert Osborne had interviewed Doris about the making of this movie.

    It completely showcases all her acting, singing, and dancing talents.


    The gal who played Katie I believe went on to act in The Thorn Birds,

    and was Mrs. Luebner on the Tony Randall show. She also played

    the crazy woman in Jeremiah Johnson. (Allyn Anne McClerie? sp?)

  4. "Someday.." is so evocative of 20's pieces. Lovely, hopeful, yet peaceful

    cadences...thanks for the link.

    I saw Hay Fever with Judy Dench this summer in the UK.


    DL is much like SOB in the first sequence of the movie within

    a movie sequence - Julie alone on a stage with props,

    then in the more updated SOB MWAM scenario, it sort of

    parallels V/V in the second, more risque and avante garde.


    Does that make any sense? :)

  5. The latest book on Ava was entitled Ava Gardner : Love is Nothing,

    and came out in April of '06. I wrote a review of it that is still on Amazon.com

    (I think) with lots of other great comments from all kinds of folks.


    A very slick read - historical compilation, funny, poignant
