  1. I believe it's SOMEONE TO REMEMBER from 1943, starring Mabel Paige as the old lady and directed by Robert Siodmak (of all people!)
  2. Just caught up with this one myself. I think it's perhaps to easy to take a lot of pot shots at Joan Crawford from our point of view today, being perhaps overly familiar with the whole "Mommie Dearest" thing. Given what the part was, I think her performance was quite good, understated even, given her occasional propensity for scenery chewing in these types of films. I agree with the whole Southern gothic sub-thread running through here as noted by Bronxgirl and others. I think one reason the cast didn't get out of the house more was because the house actually was almost another chara
  3. Since I was a kid, it just isn't Halloween without at least some of the Universal classics. In no particular order, my choices would include, but would not necessarily be limited to: 1. THE MUMMY'S TOMB 2. THE MUMMY'S GHOST 3. THE MUMMY'S CURSE 4. SON OF DRACULA 5. FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN 6-8 THE ORIGINAL FRANKENSTEIN "TRILOGY" with Karloff 9. THE NIGHT MONSTER 10. HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN 11. HOUSE OF DRACULA 12. THE RAVEN (1935) 13. BLACK FRIDAY Non-Universals: 1. THE WALKING DEAD (1936) 2. THE SEVENTH VICTIM 3. ISLE OF THE DEAD 4. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATC
  4. I believe the song is actually called "Hocus Pocus." Miss Lake sings it in a nightclub sequence in THIS GUN FOR HIRE. Enjoying this thread, Miss G!
  5. Although I've not seen it in some time, as I recall Hurd Hatfield gets in his share of catty lines as well! It's a good mystery thriller I'm sure you'll enjoy. And by the way, the book (by Charlotte Armstrong) isn't bad either.
  6. Another possibility is 1978's SHALIMAR starring Rex Harrison as the castle's owner who watches the various theft attempts by way of his video security system and John Saxon as one of the potential thieves. To my knowledge, it was not in 3-D, however the rest of your description fits what happens in this film pretty well It was released on video as DEADLY THIEF, so if you're looking for a copy, you may be able to find it on Amazon or e-Bay or a similar site.
  7. Dick Elliott. He also was Mayor Pike on THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW's first two seasons.
  8. It could be 1972's MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS, with Vanessa Redgrave & Glenda Jackson.
  9. It might be 1961's THE SEVEN WOMEN FROM HELL with Patricia Owens & Cesar Romero.
  10. I think this is why these two categories are often lumped together when considering these genres. Often one will contain elements of the other. For instance, FRANKENSTEIN, while a work of science fiction, contains horrific elements. In a like manner, a film like I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF contains science fiction elements but should still really (IMO) be classified as "horror." Then you have films that are "straight" horror (containing no science fiction elements), such as THE WOLF MAN, or which are "straight" science fiction (containing no horror), such as THINGS TO COME (1936). S
  11. I thought it was "Sandpipers of Iwo Jima" Or maybe "She Wore a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker" Or even possibly "Quailfighters."
  12. You're thikning of SINGING IN THE RAIN with Gene Kelly & Debbie Reynolds.
  13. Yes, I've seen it. It's from 1948 and is a pretty enjoyable sea yarn. Gail Russell's character is in many ways the catalyst for much of what happens in the picture. Since you haven't seen it, I don't want to say much more. But I do recommend it.
  14. Oops, left off NEVER SO FEW and TOWARD THE UNKNOWN
  15. Well, depending on the mood I'm in, some movies I have watched multiple times (and have gotten the same response from my kids) are: WHITE CHRISTMAS IN HARM'S WAY MR. PEABODY & THE MERMAID COBRA WOMAN ANY BASIL RATHBONE SHERLOCK HOLMES MOVIE LAURA THE BIG SLEEP DARK PASSAGE THE WINDS OF WAR & WAR & REMEMBRANCE ANY UNIVERSAL HORROR OR SCI-FI CLASSIC THE GUNS OF NAVARONE NOW VOYAGER KELLY'S HEROES WHERE EAGLES DARE THE DIRTY DOZEN Question 2: Possibly.
  16. And, for something a little bit different for Cochran, I always liked him in "Come Next Spring" with Ann Sheridan.
  17. Sounds like COUNTER-ATTACK (1945) with Paul Muni.
  18. Yes, she was good in that. About the only thing she couldn't do was sing, as in MAN WITH A CLOAK (1951).

    I sent you a "Private Message." Please check your in box.
  20. Believe you're thinking of "Room For One More" (aka "The Easy Way") (1952) with Cary Grant & Betsy Drake.
  21. ow about a "Frogs" - "Thing With Two Heads" double-feature?
  22. Well, this is pretty ironic, considering one of the Duke's best (& best known) films is "The Quiet Man!"
  23. Yes, Ray is one nasty devil in "Alias Nick Beal." AND George Macready is cast somewhat against type as a minister! Taped it at least ten years ago off a local PBS station (of all things!)
