  1. Hang in there, B Girl. Don't lose hope, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
  2. Lafitte, check your private messages because I just shared the link with you.
  3. I'd love to come aboard, mon Capitain! Maybe we can watch I, Jane Doe next! And thank you for the piped Max Steiner music, it goes so well with my flounces.
  4. Has anyone here seen I, Jane Doe? I think it would be a good watch for many here at TCM. Scott said it was on Martin Scorsese's favorite films list but I had never heard of it. A little Republic gem starring Vera "Hruba" Ralston and everybody's "other man", John Carroll. Ruth Hussey, reunited with John from The Philadelphia Story, has a strong role.
  5. I'm always happy to be here. I just need to be less sporadic, which should be no problem since I'm furloughed in Reality-land.
  6. I think we damsels need rescuing from pirates! But it would be fun to be captured by a classic movie loving pirate.
  7. Hee hee! A wolverine! Pat would love that, I think. He'd save you then chuck you under the chin and say, "It's alright, kid."
  8. I'd say Hathaway's softer side was indeed dormant for most of his career but he occasionally showed he was indeed a brilliant craftsman beyond shoot-em-ups and scaring John Wayne almost as much as Ford did. I love Dr Bull! It's my favorite Rogers film. And he gets to have a love affair! A somewhat clandestine one, at that. Not your usual Rogers vehicle. He shows quite a bit asperity at small town narrow mindedness.
  9. Pat O'Brien holds a strange attraction for me. He's such a big, barking teddy bear. I feel like if I were ever getting pushed around by someone Pat would be there in an instant to rescue me.
  10. Hi Lafitte, so you liked Peter Ibbetson? I'm happy. I read the book, too, I was so taken with the story. I love plots that involve lovers communicating in, er, unorthodox ways when the world won't let them be together. It constitutes a whole sub-genre for me. Telepathic, time traveling love stories. We know so little still about how the mind works and how it connects with other minds. I think artists understand it intuitively and hence make these beautiful works to express their ideas about it. What's most astonishing is one-eyed, roaring action director Henry Hathaway was at the helm. He defi
  11. Mon cher Lafitte, so glad you discovered St. Remy-de-Provence! It's a splendid spot to make home base while you explore it and the surrounding countryside (and it's close enough to the coast to enjoy Rivieran pleasures. I hope I can get there again someday. I once stayed in the Hotel Gounod (sp?), which was the home of the composer of the 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' theme music (Funeral March of the Marionettes--how apropos!) Hope all is well here in BronxieLand.
  12. Hi Dougie! I saw Martin Scorsese's voyage to Italy and most of the French one. Always, always informative and entrancing. Could talk film with him for hours, right? Gabin is like the French Spencer Tracy to me.
  13. By the way Bronxie, I found another "urchin". Well, clad in breeches and broadcloth, lol. The thing is, he is only about 6 years old yet he looks just like...OLIVER REED.
  14. Thank you all for the warm welcome back! I'm sticking to this thread for now but it feels good to see familiar monikers and read kind words. I'm moving down to Bronxie's part of the world which is what prompted me to reach out. Lafitte, merci beaucoup for the SWEEPING welcome. Sigh. I shall ever remain a "Gone Girl". And ha ha! In a Lonely Place. That was an EPIC discussion. Ah, brings back memories... And I'm all up for a discussion as I have time on my hands when I'm not packing. Bronxie, Purple Noon is probably Delon at his prime and the story is a good one. Personally,
  15. Hello all! Such a long time! Have any of you seen Purple Noon (Plein Soleil)? That's a gorgeous Riviera movie. Bronxie, you might like it because it's classy-sexy and kind of dark too (Delon's character). It was remade as The Talented Mr. Ripley. Miss G
  16. Hello strangers! Count me as a fan of The Barbarian. I think it's Myrna's most erotic film. It seems inspired from the thrilling silents made by Rudolph Valentino. Capra's Bitter Tea of General Yen and Garbo's Wild Orchids fall into this interesting romantic film type. A good film to watch --- It's even better in the dark. Don't let the "real" world intrude to really enjoy it.
  17. I'd probably have to say Alec, too! He's much to "by the book" which would pitch me out first thing!
  18. Well, the one thing both places do have in common is my mortal enemy: la cucaracha. GRANDE cucarachas. :o I'll take gators any day over them! I had to rescue two more geckos from King Paws today. Lots of lizards are now wiggling around with stumpy tails, lol.
  19. Is it me or were those guys wearing the same wigs and dresses Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon wore in Some Like it Hot? lol Jackie, I agree about Sullivan. I always hope he'll show a crack in his armor, but he almost never does. He seems to be a bit of a patsy in ASK NO QUESTIONS but I'm not believing that. He's too smart to be so naive. But what can he do against Arlene Dahl's wiles? Ahh...he finally wised up.
  20. I thought I was the only one who always liked LADY WITHOUT A PASSPORT. Along with THE BRIBE, HIS KIND OF WOMAN, and TOUCH OF EVIL, they make for good, atmospheric south-of-the-border noirs.
  21. You've definitely sold me on it, Ro! The bit parts and the love story sound right up my alley. Favorite boxing movies (in no particular order): Body and Soul Right Cross Cinderella Man The Set-Up The Champ Champion Golden Boy The Prizefighter and The Lady Somebody Up There Likes Me Requiem For A Heavyweight The Quiet Man (ha---one scene, anyway) The Harder They Fall 99 River Street I'm probably missing a few, there are so many. I've never seen Raging Bull. I'm just not into Bobby D except in the odd flick (The Last Tycoon, Analyze This). I even prefer Godfather I
  22. 99 River Street---that would be my favorite of the lot. It even has my swoony-eyed bad boy Brad Dexter in it! I just love John Payne in film noir and this is one of his best, along with Kansas City Confidential.
  23. Hi Molo, Tension - I think this falls under that 'men can be such idiots' category of movies. If I remember correctly, mild-mannered and mousey Richard Basehart finds himself going to extremes for a dame. Where Danger Lives - Is this another one of those movies where Robert Mitchum is playing a doctor who pays a house-call on the wrong woman? He never did fare too well in white. I think HH femme Faith Domergue is the leading lady this time. The Woman on Pier 13 - One of "I Married a Commie!" propaganda movies, but elevated by Robert Ryan's (I'd wear red for him!) presence. N
  24. Bon soir, Bronxette, How is your mother feeling now? Much, much better I hope. I have to find this episode! I hope YouTube/Hulu has "The Outer Limits". This and the one about the Bee-Girl sound fascinating. Speaking of bees, I remember also being traumatized by "The Killer Bees" TV movie---I didn't know who Gloria Swanson was but I kept asking my parents for weeks if there was an imminent bee-invasion. Sadly, the world is now suffering because there aren't enough bees out there. I think of you often when I see all the little geckos around my back garden. The boys of course
  25. I agree with Larry, your post was splendid, Ro. It may even make me watch Rocky the next time it comes on TV. I will have to surmount my long standing aversion to Stallone, but I'm sure it will be worth it.
