  1. The only scene I believed and liked in *The Gift of Love*: Lauren Bacall whinnying like a horse and Evelyn Rudie responding in kind. Betty was fine, but oh, that schmaltz-greased script. Thank you so much for finding *Sentimental Journey* (1946), Miss G.
  2. Hi Anne- You should able to log on without any problem. I checked your connection to the SSO and all seems well. Please let me know if you have further issues. Thanks, Moira

Oh, yeah, Lynn, do I know Ikea!!? I am halfway between two Ikea places and have already purchased their Swedish modern bookcases 8 times (yeah, there are that many books, dvds and assorted tchotkes littering my world). I think it really may be time for one of my Spring purges. This Spring, I finally gave Goodwill my M.C. Hammer and Palazzo pants from the '80s (am I dating myself? But girl, they were r
  4. Wow, the clean and modern decor and architecture in this thread makes me wish I were clean and modern enough to live in such a place. I thought I was doing okay when I stopped having a home that looked like a dorm room, but you guys are amazingly well-versed in styles of interior decor. As long as I don't create a home that looks like something the legendary Collier brothers would think of as "homey" I figure I am still alright. Drawing on your vast knowledge of styles in home furnishing, do you have any suggestions about how to display lots of books without creating that cluttered look?
  5. Thanks to everyone who has posted their festival adventures, comments and pictures in this section of the boards. Those of us who could not be there can warm ourselves before the glow of your fresh memories! It's a joy to read.
  6. Jeez, Bronxie, Before I got glasses I once thought that I saw Samuel Beckett driving a bread delivery van, but you have me beat by a mile, finding Signoret and Demon Babes lurking amid the glue sticks and silk flowers in Michael's Store. I'm glad you're posting, though Bela's appeal also eludes me, I'm afraid. I did like seeing him in the silents despite my lack of insight into his intensity. How do you feel about Boris Karloff?
  7. See, Bronxgirl. I don't get Valentino. I don't get Ricardo Cortez. But I do get your yen for Yul ...Or is it just Pharaoh ants in your pants? :0 (Who said that?)
  8. Have you ever wished that you could step into a silent film like *Buster Keaton* did in Sherlock, Jr. (1924) and experience that other world? The upcoming guest at *The Silver Screen Oasis* in April will bring us as close to that wondrous experience as possible. In fact, retracing the steps of *Keaton, Chaplin* and *Lloyd* (and more) are on the horizon for discussion at the classic film discussion site the SSO later this month. The non-profit site is pleased to announce that film historian John Bengtson will be our Guest Author from Tuesday, April 24th through Saturday, April 28t
  9. The book does sound more interesting than the movie...but, Christy, an important question is--Did you see *Rod Taylor*?!

  12. > {quote:title=MissGoddess wrote}{quote} > > It's that face of hers....she has the worn, bitter looking face of a film noir femme. She always seems like it's a struggle for her to smile. This makes her automatically "deeper" to me in the sometimes lightweight roles. For instance, remember her in *The Mating Season* with Gene Tierney and John Lump I mean Lund? She plays Lumpy's ex-girlfriend and to me her whole presence in that movie lent a strangely dark and noirish slant that I kept expecting to go somewhere, lol. I have that problem with Jan Sterling too. I expect her to
  13. I like Baldwin much nore now that he has become a character actor, though I've never seen more of than five minutes of 30 Rock. I don't think he always parodies himself if the role calls for something more. In *The Cooler* (2003) he was great as a conflicted if weasely guy who'd been in casino management a little too long. Now that I discovered that movie was as long ago as 2003 I guess maybe the actor has decided to go for the steady paycheck if it calls for parody. If you ever have a chance to see Baldwin's first appearnce on Inside the Actor's Studio (yeah, I know) PLEASE watch it. It
  14. Hubba Hubba Alert: *Rod Taylor* near the top of his form is in *Hotel* (1967) on TCM tonight starting at 8pm EDT. At times it's a wee bit OTT, but it is saved by a great cast with Melvyn Douglas, Merle Oberon, Michael Rennie and Karl Malden, among others showing the back of the house efforts that keep a hotel humming...or not, since Kevin McCarthy is trying to take over. Somehow when Arthur Hailey wrote about earth bound organizations instead of airplanes, it didn't seem as dumb. But of course, maybe it's just because I get to see Mr. Taylor in this movie.
