  1. I agree with speedracer5 re: "guilty pleasures." Anyway... Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Total fluff -- and I like it that way!
  2. "You two girls have everything. You're tall and short and slim and stout and blonde and brunette. And that's just the kind of a girl I crave." -- Groucho, Animal Crackers
  3. I was thinking it might be something like that. I just discovered this morning that after she died, he wrote a song about her, appropriately called Nan. That might have something to do with it too.
  4. Someone told me that Frankie Laine and Nan Grey recorded a song together. Does anyone have any information about that? The title would be helpful! Thanks.
  5. Anyone know if there's an "official" video of Danger on the Air? I'd like to upgrade my public domain copy. Thanks.
  6. Michael Pate and Joseph Campanella. Elisha Cook Jr. and Walter Burke. Vic Perrin and Henry Gibson.
  7. Not a big fan of foreign films, but I LOVE La Règle du Jeu.
  8. I don't know if Welles ever explained it, but I've always thought that the screaming was, if not coming from Susan's psyche, at least a fascinating use of sound that enhances the frightening mood.
  9. I love Groucho's dancing! There's a move I've seen him do more than once (Chico did it too in one of the movies), where he sort of "patted himself down" -- see attached stills from You Bet Your Life, or even better, watch it here: https://youtu.be/U1xiUmzmuRg?t=1079 I was wondering if this is a "real" dance move, or if it was his own invention. For that matter, what about the rest of the dance? Is it all his invention, or was it an actual dance? Thanks in advance!
  10. I've directed some short films and videos, but never understood exactly what a director did (! -- I don't have any formal training) until I had this revelation a few years ago: the director's job is to make sure that everything in the movie is understandable to a viewer coming to it who has no knowledge of what it's about. I've seen a number of movies that had plot points that didn't make sense, or a character's motivation didn't make sense, or something that needed to be seen wasn't visible in the picture, or an actor voiced his lines unintelligibly -- things like that. To me it seems that
  11. I figured it was something like that. I searched "oomph girls" to see if there was a (very) similar photo. There wasn't one, but the ones you put up here are in the ballpark! Thanks.
  12. In the movie "DuBarry Was a Lady, " when Virginia O'Brien does her Salome number, she twice mentions "oomph girls," and when she does, she strikes a particular pose (see screenshot). I'm wondering what the significance of that pose is. Thanks.
  13. I don't have the answer to this mystery, but I would like to offer hope that your memories of it aren't mass hypnosis: I read a sci-fi/horror story in 1968 that really captured my imagination. I searched for it on and off over the years, and last year found mention of it in a chat room. Other people have been looking for it too! It's similar to Ray Bradbury's Fever Dream -- in fact, it may well have been inspired by it, but it's definitely NOT Fever Dream. Anyway, through a series of odd twists and turns, I now have a scan of the story from the magazine in which it was published. My point
