  1. Every one of those outfits was a winner and Nancy wore them very well.
  2. Nancy: "Ben, you are my hero!" (he's now getting the worship spillover for RO from these aging stars) A fun evening! (guilty pleasure-wise!) I loved MOVIN' WITH NANCY. She looked fab in those groovy-yet-chic Jax fashions. My favorite was that short khaki trenchcoat paired with black boots. FOR THOSE WHO THINK YOUNG was pretty bizarre. I believe this was Nancy's first film and she unfortunately looked like an underfed chipmunk. I didn't "get" Woody Woodbury -- a 1960's version of Kay Kyser -- very weird. The pleasant surprise was THE LAST OF THE SECRET AGENTS,
  3. I'll tell you where I stand (and I'm not joking either) -- those three had subtle sex appeal and were underrated actors.
  4. Hepburn also made two films which I think might be called "noirish" -- KEEPER OF THE FLAME and UNDERCURRENT.
  5. Yes, the world can't have too many lovebirds.
  6. I was thinking the exact same thing!! So adorable!!
  7. When you think about it, are there any likeable characters in THE BIRDS? Stupid Annie Hayworth, interminably pining away for the love of wimpy Mitch who initiated the end of their relationship by not standing up to his cold, selfish, needy, controlling mother Lydia. Then there is blubbery sister Cathy, and last but not least, rich vacant ex-playgirl Melanie Daniels.
  8. "If you want to be me, be me, if you want to be you, be you...."
  9. My favorite scene in that movie. Very James Whale-ian even though I think Stuart Walker was the director.
  10. I always felt sorry for those two kids, having her as a mother, overreacting to everything, lol.
  11. One interpretation might be that Melanie takes to heart she truly is "the cause of it all" as the hysterical mother at the Tides Restaurant accuses her of being, so she goes up to the attic as a sort of "penance", knowing full well the birds might be congregating there.
  12. You're in for a treat. If that's the right word.
