  1. In Live, Love, and Learn, Robert Montgomery plays a starving artist who meets wealthy Roz Russell when she crashes through one of his paintings. And then there's Paul Newman's modern artist in What a Way to Go.
  2. No issues here (DirecTV, NYS).
  3. Watch Tennessee Johnson and then read up on what really happened. Ditto They Died With Their Boots On.
  4. Imagine Jim McLain had been working for the Kefauver Committee instead. (Yes, I know Hawaii wasn't a state at the time and so wouldn't have been part of the committee's remit.) Would the film be any better or worse? When I watched the movie, I found it to be about as good as a sub-par episode of Hawaii Five-O; so, while not particularly good, nowhere near as bad as most reviews would have you believe. But then, almost every review says it's bad for having the gall to say mean things about commies.
  5. I'm assuming it ended with Jane having sex, so she was no longer a virgin?
  6. Some people prefer stable to the "woe is me" shtick.
  7. No; Bass Lake is the first location I think of when I think the California mountains and movies. I saw you mention Bridgeport, and I was curious how far it was from Bass Lake.
  8. No; they're sticking their fingers in their ears before the conversation starts:
  9. Just for kicks I looked it up, and apparently you're a good 3-1/2 hours away from Bass Lake. As for me, I could go down US-209 to get to Elisa [sic] Landi Drive, and then a few more miles to the Hurley Mountain Inn, where some of the scenes in Tootsie were filmed. I have no idea if the place survived the coronavirus shutdowns.
  10. I stated in another thread quite some time ago that I never found Wendell Corey to be a convincing romantic partner in any film where he's supposed to be one. As far as real life goes, I've never gotten why Bogart and Bacall are supposed to be the great Hollywood love story. For tragic you've got Gable and Lombard, and there are any number of very long-term romances out there.
  11. Not happy little trees?
  12. Have you seen the 1970's movie Juggernaut? A baggage check mishap is a key plot point there, too.
  13. She's not the Mayor-elect, since she hasn't won the general election.
  14. Have you really ever tried giving a cat a bath?
  15. I don't think anybody's mentioned Ingmar Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night yet.
  16. Gotta love military thinking and the idea that you can find bliss in Texas.
  17. It seems the problem most people have with the Hollywood Blacklist isn't that it existed, but that it was anti-communists doing the blacklisting Blacklist the "right" group of people and they'd be fine with it.
  18. Anita Loos wrote Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and followed it up with But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes. (Both were, of course, turned into movies in the 1950s.)
  19. I thought Broadway was sinking down the drain of "vintage musical act repackages their catalog into a musical".
  20. Not always: he also did Mrs. Parkington (who I always think should have had an affair with Mr. Skeffington).
  21. The computer lights in Desk Set are reused in the Dick Van Dyke segment of What a Way to Go!
  22. Back in the 1930s, every studio seemed to have a curvy staircase that got used in a rich family's house. I'm assuming each studio just used the same staircase over and over.
  23. Actually, the Gumm sisters appeared as far back as Bubbles in 1930: La Fiesta de Santa Barbara has really nice three-strip Technicolor, too. The picture of the guy singing alongside a horse in the TCM Extras intro is from La Fiesta de Santa Barbara, IIRC.
