  1. I am deeply saddened to hear of Robert Osborne's death.  My sympathies go out to his family, friends, and everyone at Turner Classic Movies. 



    TCM has given me great solace over the past few years.  Not just because of the timeless films but because of Robert Osborne.  Tuning in each night was like visiting with an old friend who welcomed you with a hearty smile and warmed the room with his insurmountable knowledge of classic films.  What a time it was.



    Thank you, Robert.  You will be missed.

  2. " Thanks so much for responding, and not to slight Ms. Bittman in the least, but she is not the person I have in mind. I'll try to post a particular announcement by the woman I'm trying to place, so we're all on the same page."




    If you're referring to the female voice over for the Monthly Movie News it's Stephanie March. She played Alexandra Cabot on Law & Order.

  3. Eugina,



    It's a testiment to the actress's ability in order to pull off genuine friendship. I'm always wondering what each was thinking in certain scenes where they had to hug or console or laugh. I picture those comic strip bubble's over their heads with captions such as, "I'd like to sock you in the kisser!" Or, "You'd look good wearing that champagne!" lol








    How wonderful to know that you and Miss Davis are relatives! Your excitment comes through your post! I'm sure you are doing her proud with your loving thread devoted to her. I am very happy for you. 8^)








    Hope you had a nice weekend! Thanks for the information about the new releases. I purchased THE SISTER which I haven't seen in ages.









    Last night I watched OLD ACQUAINTANCE starring Miss Davis and Miriam Hopkins. Everytime I view this film I find it interesting that both actresses hated each other. I always chuckle at the scene when Davis wrings Hopkins neck! The delight she must have taken in that. lol




    You are very welcome! Bette Davis is one of my favorite actress's and this thread along with EugeniaH's Barbara Stanwyck thread are two of my "go to" threads in the forum. Keep up the good work because it's appreciated!









    Thank you for your review of the TCM Bette Davis Film Collection. On your recommendation I purchased it and can't wait until it arrives!









    <<And, MovieGal, thank you so much for saying that you love this thread. It made me feel so good, I love to hear that threads I make really enjoy people! :) And, as you probably have guessed, I own the Bette Davis TCM Greatest Classics Legend Collection. I am glad you want to buy it! I have also watched Dark Victory a myriad of times and have not listened to the commentary once. I didn't even know that it had commentary! So, it's your choice if you want to turn it on or off. In my next post, you will see all the posters of The Great Lie (which just happened to be shown this year on my birthday)...>>

  6. I absolutely LOVE this thread! Thank you BetteDavis19 for starting it.


    Has anyone purchased the TCM Classic Films Collection Bette Davis? I was considering it until I read a review that states the commentary during DARK VICTORY cannot be turned off.



    Please let me know if this is the case. Thanks.


    Wasn't it Bette Davis who requested the same camera man for most of her films because she thought he did an excellent job in highlighing her best features while filming a scene?






    Also, Carole Lombard had a scar on her face from an automobile accident that was hidden by camera angles and lighting.






    Loretta Young is another actress who preferred the left side of her face,



  8. This was an interesting fact about Ms. Colbert. I think most actresses of that time were particular about how they were shot. I remember Robert Osborne saying that Rosalind Russell always made sure that her head tilted up in each scene to give the illusion of having a chin.
