  1. Wonderful new group aiming to build a new audience for the old films: *http://tinyurl.com/dx5cr4u* *website: www.moviememories.net*
  2. Imagine, people doing something TopBilled doesn't approve of. Y'all must be just shaking.
  3. Stephan55, I really liked your post.
  4. Good luck since you're not interested in hearing from people who actually know anything truthful about him. He didn't have to resemble Jesse James to play him.
  5. Respectfully, sir, you are on the wrong thread for this. By the way, the poster who said she knew to whom I was referring when I talked about my friend being involved with Tyrone was 100% correct. She clearly has in-depth knowledge of Power and his family. I submit that you do not have any knowledge of this man, other than what he looked like and a couple of stupid fantasy books, to write about him and these issues. Those who know about THE PERSON, not the guy on the screen with the effeminate (!) gestures, disagree. You will get more support if you stop harping on Power. Excuse me as wel
  6. TopBilled, I think you have a legitimate point worth exploring. I do understand what you are saying about JESSE JAMES, but I can't see it with Power. I think he and Grable were great in Yank in the RAF. I believe you see things in him that I just can't and never have. Some of it is my own prejudice; I was very close to a woman who was deeply involved with him when he was first separated from Linda Christian.
  7. No matter Tyrone Power's fluid sexuality, he's never been sexually ambiguous to me nor to anyone else I know. That includes a woman I knew who was involved with him. You can look for homoeroticism and transgenderism under every rock and find it, but that doesn't mean it's there. I don't sit there analyzing every second for it. Ben Hur is another story. I've seen some '30s, '40s, '50s films where there were homoerotic elements that I'm sure went right over the heads of the audiences. Not in any Tyrone Power film except for Zorro where he deliberately played Don Diego as a fop. It was hil
  8. I wish I had the time to read this whole thread, but I don't. I will just say a couple of things. First of all, I adore The Razor's Edge. It's one of my favorite movies. When they had the tribute to Tyrone in 2008 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, they wanted to show his first "big" film, Lloyds of London, but a lot of people had requested The Razor's Edge for Saturday night, so they went with it. The theater was packed, and the film went over beautifully on the big screen. As far as showcasing Tyrone in a big production, yes, and it paid off, as this was Fox's biggest hit
  9. http://www.facebook.com/TyronePowerStamp2014 These are being sent to the USPS to support what an incredible stamp Tyrone Power would make! They have been designed by Cheryl Parker and are fantastic. If you can, please check "LIKE" on the left side of the page, and if possible, write to support his inclusion for 2014. There are some emails on the page to various people, like senators from Ohio, where he is from, the mayor of Cincinnati, and of course you can always drop a postcard to the USPS Committee itself. Really nice work and some spectacular results. Over 8,000 people
  10. *May 5, 1914 - November 15, 1958* "But it may be that the way of life that he has chosen for himself and the peculiar strength and sweetness of his character may have an ever-growing influence over his fellow men so that, long after his death perhaps, it may be realized that there lived in this age a very remarkable creature." ?

  11. I was just over on the Zero Sex Appeal thread, and I forgot to mention that Tyrone was extra-sexy in The Black Swan. When he stands there in those white pants and shirtless - forget it! And that black and red outfit - to die for. Someone on that thread said he wasn't sexy. Right. Hideous. The thing is, some of these young guys who appealed to the "kids" of the later '30s didn't always make movies that allowed them to be sexy. By '41, though, I guess they'd let Ty loose because to my mind, he was!
  12. Ty Power Jr. isn't a friend of mine, but he is a friend of someone I know, who is an avid memorabilia collector and expert on Ty's father. I don't know any details, but I think you'll be hearing more about Tyrone Power Jr. in the months to come.
  13. I always wanted to see Tyrone Power in Picture of Dorian Gray. I like Hurd Hatfield, but to me, he was very cold and it was believable that he was so evil. Yet everyone around him was saying, oh, he never could have done those things, and Donna Reed was so crazy about him - you really didn't know why. Power was so charming on screen, he could have made you believe he wasn't capable of such behavior, and then turn it off and be cruel.
  14. I just read a bad review of this book so I checked it out on Amazon and looked at the Table of Contents. Were they joking? Why is Peter O'Toole in there? The title is "The 50 Most Unforgettable Actors of the Studio Era. Peter O'Toole was NOT part of the studio era, and if you want to get really technical about it, neither were the silent film people. The studio era has a connotation to it that normally does not include the silents or people who didn't play a lead until 1960. I have to agree with the review I read. Leaving out Tyrone Power and Orson Welles and arbitrarily sticking othe
