  1. Almost had me going there, Dargo, lol. I was (really!) breathless with anticipation until the second sentence. Just tell me how much the Whitestone Bridge is going for these days and I'll write you out a check.
  2. Mama Mia, Walter Slezak in 1925!! I always thought he was born looking like a middle-aged, overweight Viennese waiter. (along the lines of S. Z. Sakall -- hey, can anyone find a sexy photo of "Cuddles" in his Hungarian youth?) While I appreciate Dick Powell's hard-boiled, noir persona changeover in the mid-Forties, I have to say (small voice, lol) that I really enjoy him more in cute n' clever stuff like YOU NEVER CAN TELL and SUSAN SLEPT HERE.
  3. And TCM is running FLOWER DRUM SONG this Wednesday! As soon as James sat down at the piano and started playing that beautiful Japanese melody, I think that's when Victoria really began to "appreciate" him. God knows I would.
  4. James Shigeta....(sigh) Have had a crush on him ever since FLOWER DRUM SONG. You can keep Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, et. al. Give me some Jimmie!!! In my opinion, one of the handsomest men in all moviedom. Just finished watching THE CRIMSON KIMONO. Eh, not too impressed with this movie but re: my above sentence, who cares, lol??
  5. I know, right? No wonder I kept falling asleep! But guess what? I found out THE SECOND WOMAN was on YouTube. Curiosity (and an **** personality) had me watching to the bitter end. (I also armed myself beforehand with a large cup of strong coffee) They say patience is a virtue and this quality is definitely needed here. Story combines elements of REBECCA, with some GASLIGHT thrown in for good measure. The pleasant, soothing, vanilla flavor of Robert Young works well in certain roles -- I'm thinking of CLAUDIA in particular -- but here he's just uninvolvingly bland. Even a so-called twist ending doesn't help.
  6. I love salami..... But never mind about that. I was trying to get through something called THE SECOND WOMAN (never heard of it before) which unceremoniously popped up on one of my local public broadcasting channels here in Boca. It's the third airing this week and I've fallen asleep halfway through each time. I mean, Robert Young and Betsy Drake -- scintillating!
  7. lol, that does say it all. Wonder what their livers looked like.
  8. And speaking of actors who went to pot, Bruce Cabot looked a big ragged, and this was only 1945.
  9. I've always liked FALLEN ANGEL -- in fact, it's one of my favorite Preminger movies, but wish like hell all of Faye's scenes were kept intact. Hate Zanuck for that sabotage. (and I say this as a Linda Darnell fan. One of the screen's great beauties who could also act).
  10. He makes Mickey Rooney look like Tarzan.
  11. Or ham and eggs. In every movie made after 1930 but before 1950 it seems.
  12. I can't believe it's Percy Helton either, lol.
  13. Look what I discovered! (and just saw BLONDE ICE -- loved it!) http://www.openculture.com/free_film_noir_movies
