  1. Does Honolulu have volcanoes? Or are they on the other islands? Or were you referring to those Thunderbird movies? (I'm ashamed to say I've never seen any) Guess what -- I stumbled upon Hallmark this afternoon and what scene did it land on? One of the blandly handsome Canadian male leads looked like he was Redwood tapping!! I actually shouted at my t.v. screen "That's what Dougie was talking about!" The title is now out of my head but I think it did have something with "Your Heart" in it. There is an interracial romance and the bride is pleasantly plumpish. Plus a "flamboyant" c
  2. I enjoyed this bit of trivia from Sven: At this point in his life Milland was bald. It was so hot on location filming FROGS that Ray's toupee slid off the top of his head more than once.
  4. I was watching THE INNOCENTS this morning so a country estate in England is out of the question, lol. Don't want to run into Quint or Miss Jessel. (I'm very impressionable) I do fancy Ingrid's place in INDISCREET if Cary comes with it. I of course still harbor Cote D'Azur fantasies but have been thinking lately that a villa might be too much upkeep. However -- bringing up Cary Grant again -- I do love his hideaway in TO CATCH A THIEF. Also David Niven and Jean Seberg's vacation home in BONJOUR, TRISTESSE. I've got to be near the ocean.
  5. My other dream residences would be a mid-20th century modern home in Santa Monica or Malibu, plus a condo in Honolulu overlooking the beach in a very upscale area. I need understated luxury. Nothing ostentatious. I also desperately want Oliver and Alice Reed's charming and picturesque Sleepy Hollow abode from CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE.
  6. My dream of home ownership is a townhouse (in London) which would have the cozy elegance of apartment living. I'd employ a charwoman. Or have I been watching too many 1950's British movies....
  7. Dougie, do you know the title? I just might check it out, lol.
  8. It's a treat having you pop in here, my friend. Don't tell Miss W., but I've been seeing Bugs on the sly. All perfectly innocent. We drink carrot juice together at a local health food cafe. (gotta be in shape for this crazy New Year....)
  9. Best movie and performance, HUD, hands down for me.
  10. Thanks for this information. I am glad the cast was at least acknowledged in some way!
  11. Oh, dear, lol. Frugality is a virtue I guess in that particular world, allowing them to grind out an infinite number of movies for the fans. I suppose when the end of the world draws nigh, nothing will remain but cockroaches and The Hallmark Channel. Both have an enormous capacity for survival!
