  1. According to IMDB, it was Annette Warren, who also sang for Ava Gardner in 1951's SHOW BOAT. See here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0912723/
  2. I've seen it. I agree with you that it's one of the best "spy" type films of World War II, and all the more so because it was based on a true story. I think my favorite sequence (out of many memorable ones in the film) is the one regarding Holden's friendship with the Jewish businessman. In order to cement his reputation as a turncoat, Holden publicly insults the man, who tells him, "I know there is more to this than you are saying, and I will wait to see what it is." After the war, when Holden's role as a good guy is revealed, his friend tells him he knew Holden could never just sud

  4. Here are some interesting tidbits about IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, which as we all know has also been the subject of some difficulty over its PD status. This is from Wikipedia, but appears to be accurate: Ownership and copyright issues Ancillary rights Liberty Films was purchased by Paramount Pictures, and remained a subsidiary until 1951. In 1955, M. & A. Alexander purchased the movie. This included key rights to the original television syndication, the original nitrate film elements, the music score, and the film rights to the story on which the film is based, "The Greatest Gift".[33]
  5. Actually, this happens to character actor Don Beddoe in the 1946 Alan Ladd film O.S.S..
  6. > {quote:title=oldsalt61 wrote:}{quote} > The Doolittle Raid movie I remember is "30 Seconds Over Tokyo". You are correct about THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO being about the Doolittle raid, but ABOVE AND BEYOND features the scene the OP described in which the commander's wife mistakenly gets a scientist to fix her sink plumbing.
  7. A couple of other possibilies are COMMANDOS STRIKE AT DAWN, 1942 with Paul Muni or THE MOON IS DOWN, 1943 with Sir Cedric Hardwicke.
  8. It could be MOMENT TO MOMENT, 1965, with Jean Seberg as the wife, Sean Garrison as the young lover, and Arthur Hill as the husband (who's a diplomat, not the young man's superior officer).
  9. You are indeed. Released in 1950, the film starred David Brian, John Agar and Frank Lovejoy. It was released on VHS, so if you look around, you may be able to find a copy.
  10. He also displayed a nice flair for "comedy relief" in the old "Laredo" TV series.
  11. From your description, it sounds like it could be ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS, however, that film was released in 1964.
  12. Movie #1 sounds like FROM THE DEAD OF NIGHT, a 1989 TVM with Lindsay Wagner as a woman who has a near death experience and who is subsequently pursued by walking dead who want to drag her back to the other side.
  13. It could be THE CAPER OF THE GOLDEN BULLS, 1967, with Stephen Boyd and Yvette Mimieux. It's in color, though.
  14. Leave us not forget "The Queen of the Republic serials," Linda Stirling, who was quite fetching as THE TIGER WOMAN in 1944, as well as numerous other serials.
  15. Vera, perhaps the ultimate film noir femme fatale, as portrayed by Ann Savage in DETOUR, 1945.
  16. Possibly ADAM'S RIB, 1949, with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn as the married couple and David Wayne as the young man with a crush on the wife. He even writes her a song.
  17. ABOVE AND BEYOND, 1952, with Robert Taylor as Col. Paul Tibbetts, commander of the raid which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on 8-6-45, and Eleanor Parker as his wife Lucey.
  18. It could also be THE GIRL MOST LIKELY, 1958, with Jane Powell.
  19. THE DAY MARS INVADED EARTH, 1963, with Kent Taylor and Marie Windsor.
  20. And funnier, too. My favorite scene: Ford's phone call to Alfred Hitchcock for advice on how to bury a corpse without a shovel.
  21. IT STARTED WITH A KISS, 1959, with Glenn Ford & Debbie Reynolds.
  22. > {quote:title=lzcutter wrote:}{quote} > Cary Grant plays that type in *Holiday*, the version starring Katherine Hepburn, Grant and Lew Ayers. Agree. And how about Alec Guinness as artist Gulley Jimson in THE HORSE'S MOUTH?
  23. Katharine Hepburn also played (and quite well) this type of role in BRINGING UP BABY, too. And there's also James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd, who would recommend being pleasant over being smart, in HARVEY.
  24. > {quote:title=patful wrote:}{quote} > Another perfect vehicle for the usual nut-cases to make their appearances. Should be loads of fun by morning. Sorry, filmlover, this was a bad idea. I also notice that disagreement with a certain ideology/mindset often seems to result in name-calling rather than in a reasonable exchange of ideas.
  25. > {quote:title=mr6666 wrote:}{quote} > filmlover, just wanted to let you know I totally agree > (before our noses get slapped by the 1st amendment nazis) Funny you should say that, since the last time I looked, you couldn't even mention "Intelligent Design" in the public school classroom.
