  1. Mongo, You sure looked well dressed sitting next to Rovert Osbourne. Two handsome men discussing classic movies. What more could a gal ask for. Great job
  2. Hi Mongo, A belated thank you for remembering Doris Day on her birthday. My computer was acting up, and I didn`t see the pic until today. Your Candids thread is enjoyed by everybody. Congratulations on being chosen as a TCM guest programmer. I will be watching all week.
  3. Hi Miss Goddess, Thank you for the beautiful photos of Loretta. I was a little disappointed that Loretta and Tyronne Power were not included as a movie couple in Robert Osborne`s new book. Ty is matched with Gene Tierney. I own the Tyronne Power romantic idol collection, and I loved the chemistry between Ty and Loretta in "Cafe Metoprole" and "Love Is News".
  4. Hi Film Fatale, Yes, "Niagara" is a Fox film. Marilyn Monroe garnered most of the attention when the film was released, but Joseph Cotten gives a fine performance as her neurotic husband Location filming was done in Niagara Falls, NY. and Ont. in the summer of 1952.
  5. The January 2009 schedule looks great especially the Private Screening with Ernest Borgnine and Jack Lemmon as SOTM. My only quibble is I wish that instead of a few of Jack`s lesser comedies, Day`s Of Wine And Rose`s, "Missing", and Glengarry Glen Ross could have been shown instead. I noticed that Joseph Cotten`s fine performance in Niagara will be shown in January instead of December when he is SOTM.
  6. Hi Theresa, The first movie that I watched was "Love Is News" The disc for that movie included a feature on Loretta and Tyronne. It was very enlightning to hear how well matched they were, and Loretta and Tyronne dated for a year. "Suez" changed everything. "Love Is News" was Tyronne`s first starring role, and Loretta was a stinker to him. She wanted to get back at him, and she sure did! The movie is classified as a screwball comedy. Does your Grandpa watch the older movies too with you and Grandma? I enjoy reading your stories so much. My choice at Applebee`s was riblets and chicken fingers.
  7. Hey Theresa, Thanks for the birthday message. My daughter bought me a chocolate birthday cake, and we had dinner at Applebee`s. My son gave me a new dvd vcr combo player. Today my daughter gift to me arrived from Amazon. You know that the first movie that I will be watching from the Tyronne Power dvd set is Cafe Metropole, followed by Love Is News and Second Honeymoon. We never can watch too many Loretta movies.
  8. Hey Theresa, Cafe Metrople was a lucky guess for me. It is the movie from the set that I most want to see. Loretta wore a wedding gown in "The Stranger" with Orson Welles. "The Farmer`s Daughter" was shown last night, and I watched the movie again. My two favorite scenes are Joseph Cotten showing off while ice skating while Loretta laughs, and the swedish massage. I hit the big 60 today September 12th.
  9. Hi Miss Goddess, Peek a boo Loretta and still lovely. I have seen many photos of Loretta, but this pic is a first. Thanks for sharing with her fans.
  10. Today is the one year anniversary of the passing of one of my favorite actresses, Jane Wyman. Today I watched a few clips on You Tube of Jane singing two songs from "Night And Day". She had a nice singing voice which we were able to hear in "Here Come`s The Groom" and "Just For You". Every year I keep hoping that "The Blue Veil" will be shown or the TV series Falcon Crest will be released on dvd. A new biography of Jane`s second husband Ronald Reagan has just been released. It deals with Mr. Reagan`s Hollywood career, and I have read a review. Jane is not always shown as a perfect wife, but sh
  11. Hi Theresa, I asked my daughter to buy me the Tyronne Power romantic dvd gift set for my birthday. Since I haven`t received my present yet, my guess is "Cafe Metropole". Loretta will always remain my true classic beauty from the 1930`s and 1940`s. Tonight TCM is showing "The Farmer`s Daughter at 12:45 am.
  12. Hi Laffite and Theresa, Now you do the same thing to me? I am not an expert on Loretta`s early 1930`s movies, but I do remember her wearing a fur coat in "Midnight Mary". The photo with Norman Foster stumped me. I do know a few facts about Norman. His first wife was Claudette Colbert, and they never shared the same home during their brief marriage. Claudette continued to live with her mother. Norman`s second marriage was to Sally Blane Loretta`s sister. He later became a director, and made one of my favorite Loretta movies "Rachel And The Stranger".
  13. Hey Theresa, It was easy to why Loretta and Spencer fell in love while making "Man`s Castle". The looks that they exchanged are clearly evident throughout the film. You have heard the story of Loretta breaking off the relationship with the married Spencer because the guilt and her religion meant too much. She sent Spencer a letter telling him why the affair must end, and simply signed me. Spencer never spoke about the letter to Loretta though their paths crossed thru the years. Many years later after her father`s death, Susie Tracy visited Loretta. She found the letter among her father`s pos
  14. Hi Theresa, No fair! I don`t have a chance to figure out the title of Loretta`s movie. Her leading man is facing towards her, and I cannot see his face. LOL
  15. It was my pleasure tonight to watch "Man`s Castle" for the first time. Loretta Young and Spencer Tracy`s love for each other showed thru their dire circumstances. Loretta was luminous as Trina, and she showed many layers of emotions. Moirafinna wrote a very interesting article on the career of the director of this film Frank Borzage on the MovieMorbloks site. She goes into about the making and the performances of "Man`s Castle". I have always wished that Loretta Young would be chosen as TCM`s SOTM. She left us with a wonderful selection of movies from four decades."Man`s Castle" would be a mo
  16. Hi FG and CK, Thanks for the lovely pics of Roz. She did not receive many posting when during her SOTM in July. I enjoyed every movie that I saw her in whether comedy or drama including Gypsy. Roz has fans on YouTube, and clips from " The Citadel have been recently added. Scenes from The Women, His Girl Friday, Never Wave At A Wac, Gypsy, and others are also posted. Take a look and enjoy.
  17. Hi Mongo, Thanks for your new thread "Candids". What a lovely wedding photo of Eleanor Powell and Glenn Ford. Hopefully by the end of the year, their son Peter will finish his biography on his dad.
  18. Hi Forever Garland, I enjoyed watching Rosiland Russell`s films so much, that she is on my favorites list on you tube. Now I can see Roz perform two numbers from the 1958 CBS broadcast of Wonderful Town. It is easy to see why Roz won the Tony award. Before the opening of Wonderful town in 1953, Roz made a guest appearance on the game show What`s My Line. Two musical clips from Gypsy one that was deleted from the final cut are posted. The USA TODAY wrote last Tuesday when Gypsy was shown that the casting of Roz was always controversial. The lady could act, and for many fans that was enough. It
  19. Tonight I will miss seeing the last night of Roz`s film. Thru the month of July I have watched this multi talanted actress perform equally well in comedies and dramas. When she felt her movie career was slipping, Roz returned to Broadway and and a smash hit with Wonderful Town. Three years later she had her biggest triumph with Auntie Mame, and tonight we will see her recreate her fabulous performance. Roz had many friends including Loretta Young and Frank Sinatra. She was a guest host on Lorett`s show when she became ill in the 1950`s. Frank Sinatra presented Roz with the Jean Hersholdt Human
  20. Verna Felton costarred with Spring Byington in the 1950`s CBS comedy "December Bride.". Harry Morgan played the nosy neighbor Pete.
  21. I beg to disagree, but Iiked Rosiland Russell`s performance in "Picnic".She ran the gamut of emotions, and I thought that she did a fine job. My favorite scene is when she shows her vulnerability and begs Howard to marry her. William Holden owed a last film on his contract to Columbia. He did not want to do the film, but even though he looked too old for the part, I have no complaints about his acting.
  22. Hi Mongo, What a lovely photo of Van and Frances with baby Vana. While making "Shane", Van and Alan Ladd became close friends. Van always believed that Alan was underrated as an actor, and Alan turned to him in times of trouble,
  23. Bobby Murcer the belovled Yankee outfielder and broadcaster died on Saturday. His favorite movie was "Pride Of The Yankees".
  24. Hi Mongo, Thanks for spotlighting Van Heflin. He deserved the Academy Award for "johnny Eager, and I enjoyed his perfomances in "The The Strange Loves Of Marta Ivers", "Act Of Violence", "East Side West Side", and especially " "Shane" " A Woman`s World" and "3:10 to Yuma". Do you know if the ugly supporting actor Oscar that Van and Teresa Wright received in 1943 were later replaced by the statuette. The juevenille Oscar that Judy Garland received for "The Wizard Of Oz" was better looking than the plaque.
  25. Hi Forever Garland, Thanks for the pics of Loretta. She was very lovely, and I am looking forward to the Tyronne dvd collection release this month. The set will include Ty and Loretta comedies.
