  1. Not a review just my observation after multiple viewings.
  2. This is a great film that Dick Powell was made to star in. It takes a few viewings to get past Marlowe's sarcasm. I don't think any of Powell's lines didn't have that sarcastic edge. After reading the book several times I can hear Chandler in the dialog. Who else would pen the line "put a ribbon on it'? Took a while to get past what seems like an archaic speech pattern. So this movie only gets better with repeated viewings. Anne Shirley is about as cute as a young lady can be. Everything just works and it is a typical convoluted Chandler plot. I almost have to take notes to keep track
  3. Singing in the Rain (1952) Gene Kelly age 40 and Debby Reynolds age 20, in a romance. I'll be Seeing You (1944) Tom Tully age 36 Spring Byington age 58, husband and wife. Susan Slept Here (1954) Dick Powell age 50 Debby Reynolds age 22, housemates with more to come. I think it's funny that in real life our families and peers would be all over us for getting in a relationship with such a huge age difference. In Hollywood we might as well forget the age of the actors and just enjoy the film. Any other examples you can think of?
  4. Why did Fields wear a hat with no top? There must be some reason. So his head wouldn't sweat under the studio lights? Because he couldn't afford a complete hat? Because it was easier to put on and take off? Beats me.
  5. There was a teacher at my Junior High who looked almost exactly like Victor Mature. His name was Mr Criticos but we called him Mr Crookedtoes. Just felt like sharing that moment in history from 1962.
  6. She appears after 4 seconds when Jim and Elaine are at the piano. Marjorie Main look alike. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtuIol9aYnw
  7. Sorry, I have been searching for the lady's picture but can't find it. She goes back to the late 1970's and early 1980's. I think she appeared on the episode of Taxi when Jim takes Elaine to a society dinner and finds out he had taken piano lessons.
  8. Yes, Barney Martin. Not the Barney from the Twilight Zone with the third eye.
  9. Did the lady who appeared on the "Hungry Boy" or "Hungry Jack" commercials resemble Marjorie Main? This woman would occasionally appear on a television show, usually as a society matron. There was a 70's comedian who appeared in many commercials who reminded me of Lou Costello. I think his first name was Barney and he was not Italian. I can't post pictures here from my pc at work and accessing the forum at home is nearly impossible. Maybe someone can dig up the pictures for me. Thank you.
