  1. Yep, I agree....Rooney and Garland were a one-of-a-kind team that will never be repeated...and, like you, until I got older and really started watching a lot of the old movies, I had no idea how good Rooney could be. I saw him in THE HUMAN COMEDY and was really amazed by his talent..nice that he's still around
  2. very interesting thread.....I've always agreed with the critic Pauline Kael who said that Anne Baxter hardly seemed like she could be a threat to Bette Davis...they just weren't in the same leauge...the problem is what young actress COULD have been talented enough to take Broadway by storm the way Eve does?....also, did you know that Clifton Webb was the original choice for Addison DeWitt? ...and I love the idea of Marilyn playing that last wonderful scene, but I would not have wanted to lose her as Miss Casswell.....even then she showed impeccable comic timing.
  3. I just don't get it...what the heck does a person's politics have to do with loving MOVIES?????...As a movie lover, I am interested in every and anybody's choices ..Can we have ONE single thread that doesn't disintegrate into personality bashing or political argument? Maybe TCM should just have the same old people on every month, month after month, showing the same old movies over and over again, because , God knows, we don't want to offend anyone...I think it's refreshing to see some of the movies these guests pick..they may sure not be movies I'D pick, but that's the WHOLE idea..
  4. I have always loved this movie as well. It proves once again what an amazingly "modern" actress Garland was. I remember reading the James Agee review of this film in his book, AGEE ON FILM.. He also loved it and recognized what a joyful talent Judy Garland was at this stage in her career and life.
  5. There were many years when I think the "wrong" film won for Best Picture ( "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain"; "Ordinary People" over "Raging Bull" !; come to mind); but as far as really BAD movies winning the Oscar, I'd have to go with GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, DANCES WITH WOLVES, or THE STING
  6. THE GODFATHER and THE GODFATHER II , I think, are two of the greatest of all American movies ever made. III is a decent movie, but not even close to being in the same class as the first two. Just my opinion, of course.
  7. don't forget Angela Lansbury in "The Manchurian Candidate"
  8. I'm just glad somebody mentioned THE CLOCK on the threads. Now that is an under-rated movie. And , I can't believe somebody totally agrees with me about Judy Garland , the actress. She really is a very modern actress. As for over/under rated stars, this always is so subjective. I have never seen the appeal of Spencer Tracy. As for old stars, Norma Shearer is a joke.
  9. William Holden stars in one of my all-time favorites: SUNSET BOULEVARD.. He is fantastic in this movie: funny, sexy, dramatic. And also, BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI...another great movie with another great Holden performance.....Trivia : did you know that the author J.D. Salinger named his character from CATCHER IN THE RYE Holden Caulfied because he saw a movie marquee with the names William HOLDEN and Joan CAULFIELD. Always thought that was an interesting tidbit.
  10. NOW,VOYAGER ALL ABLUT EVE DARK VICTORY JEZEBEL MARKED WOMAN
  11. Hitchcock : REAR WINDOW PSYCHO NORTH BY NORTHWEST Scorcese : TAXI DRIVER MEAN STREETS Hawks: HIS GIRL FRIDAY Coppolla: THE GODFATHER II THE GODFATHER Huston: THE MALTESE FALCON Wyler: THE HEIRESS WUTHERING HEIGHTS
  12. Veronica Lake ........I remember my dad talkin about her when I was a kid...then I saw some movies.SULLIVANS TRAVELS, SO PROUDLY WE HAIL...God, was she beautiful...and an actress.....the scene in the cafe with Joel McRea in SULLIVANS TRAVELS...beautiful....yeah, what a tragic story, I guess....sad endings didn't start with this generation in Hollywood..
  13. I remember watching ALL ABOUT EVE for the first time when I was about 15 or so...If I didn't know I was gay before that I sure knew then LOL....Margo Channing is a star ...she has been a star all her life....Birdie....bloodhounds snappin' at her rear end....Miss Casswell...the Copacobana school of the Arts.....Bill's 32...he looks 32....he looked 32 ten years ago and he'll look 32 ten years from now....your guests would like to know when the viewing will begin....MAX...well, I can't yell Butler, somebody's name might be Butler....it still resonates with that 15 year old kid inside me.....nyc..
  14. Paul Newman, Montgomery Clift , and my favorite, Rod Taylor......I'd have been willing to be attacked by all those damn birds if he came to my rescue
  15. would still be nice if TCM continued to add these little 'extras' though...
