  1. Wow, this is great, nice photo! I don't know many of the people in the photo but #1 looks like James Garner in Maverick. #3 looks like Robert Mitchum, #7 looks like Glenn Ford, #23 is Jay Silverheels and #25 is the Lone Range, was his name Clayton Moore? Is #10 Jack Palance? I'm really not good at this...but I know Chuck Connors, James Arness and a few others must be in there, but don't know which one they are.

  2. Just read that Vic Morrow would have been 85 years old today. Can't believe that. He was a great actor. I still watch re-runs of Combat television show. Do you have any favorite movies or tv appearances that Vic Morrow made?

  3. My list would be -

     

    William Holden

    Richard Basehart

    Ralph Meeker

    James Cagney

    Edward G. Robinson

    Marlon Brando

    James Dean (they can have a 1/2 day of his films and documentary)

    Paul Newman

    Vincent Price

    Vivien Leigh

    Laurence Olivier

    Vic Morrow - don't recall them ever giving him a SUTS day

    Bette Davis

    Dana Andrews

    Lee J. Cobb

    Gregory Peck

    Jeanne Crain

    Frank Sinatra

    Burt Lancaster

    Richard Widmark

    Steve McQueen

    Martin Balsam

    Clark Gable

    Lucille Ball

    John Garfield

    Glenn Ford

  4. The TCM Remembers is always very touching and poignant, but I think they select the worst songs and singers I ever heard - this year is no exception. I had to put my tv on mute. I'd prefer complete silence to honor those who passed away. If they have to select a song, how about something people heard of - like "Memories" sung by Elvis or "The Way We Were"....they can even just play the music to these songs without the words.....

  5. Yes very good post. Just a question on East of Eden. Why was Aron so upset over finding out his mother was actually alive? I understand she didn't have an upstanding profession, but why would that bother Aron so much and cause him to go off the deep end? Also, when Cal asks Aron if he has a minute so he could show him something (he wanted to bring him to see his mother), did Aron actually go on top of the train to get there, as Cal had done on previous occassions? Did Aron actually climb on top of the train with that suit on?

  6. Would you call James Dean an icon, a legend or neither?

     

    I find it amazing that he is so revered after making only 3 films (albeit, terrific films), and having such a short career....and 58 years after we lost him, he is still so popular.

     

    I think East of Eden is my favorite James Dean film. What a terrific actor - such a shame that we will never know what could have been and how he would have evolved as he got older by taking more complex, varied roles. He was a good actor and very handsome as well.

  7. I agree with Allsaints. Marlon Brando was MAGNIFICENT in Streetcar Named Desire. One of the greatest performances ever - and to me, it was highway robbery that he didn't win Best Actor for his performance, especially when all 3 other co-stars won for that film and Brando made the entire film. I don't think Lancaster could have come close to playing Stanley Kowalski the way Brando did. Plus, Brando was so stunningly good looking and sexy - there was nobody like him - not now, not ever.

     

    By the way, I don't think Brando cared that much about his On The Waterfront Oscar...I think he was still hot after not winning for Streetcar and he ultimately used that Oscar as a doorstop and then wound up losing it all together. I think I read that somewhere.
