  1. I am new to this forum but I had to put in my opinion on Fred. Astaire and Gene. Kelly.


    I am no fan of either. Kelly, because I don't feel he has any real talent and for some reason his voice grates my nerves and. Astaire because I have always felt he stole his dancing form from Mr. Bojangles. The only credit I ever saw him give Bojangles was that "tribute" he did in blackface! An insult within a compliment.


    To those that may not know this, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson invented the Stair Dance in the 1920s. .In fact there were many talented black-tap dancers who, dressed as redcaps, had to tap on top of suitcases, danced with brooms in street-cleaning scenes, and even tapped their way up and down streets in the rain while entertaining their audiences in Harlem. In my opinion, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly williingly or unwillingly stole their art form.

  2. Does anyone happen to know the title of the song in the middle of the movie 'The Naked Kiss'? The song is sung by a child asking his mother questions that , in turn, the mother answers.


    The song has a hauntingly beautiful melody and I would love to find the lyrics to it but I don't know the title.


    Can anyone help?

  3. I love this movie. It is one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen. The only Romance movie I rate above it is "An Affair to Remember"


    However, I do have one question. Did they or didn't they?


    From the research I have done on this film, consenus say 'No, they didn't'. Which, to some, adds to the romance. I , for one, don't believe that Laura and Dr. Alec Harvey spent that one day (the only day they had together) standing on that bridge staring out at the snow.


    I say "They did".

  4. First time I had even heard of The Mortal Storm was also the first time I had ever seen it. Both happened when TCM showed it this week. However, The Mortal Storm and The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse seem like the same movie. Mortal Storm is a 1941 release (I believe) and the Four Hourseman first appeared in 1921 with another remake in 1961/62.


    So is The Mortal Storm a remake of The Four Horsemen?

  5. Has to be "Red Headed Woman". This one is indeed a classic. This woman really works what she has! I love the power women had before the code. I would have love to see the movies Bettie Davis or Joan Crawford could have done if the code never happened.


    Anyways, "Red Headed Woman" is so entertaining. It makes me laugh at the gall of Jean Harlow's character."... With marital infidelity; lots of implicit sex, violence, sadism (when Bill finally slaps Lil out of frustration, she says "Hit me again! I like it!"); and plenty of bare female flesh, this is thoroughly adult fare..."


    Oh and brw, I am a woman and I truly enjoy this one!
