  1. I don't think anyone mentioned hard-drinking Victor McLaglen in The Informer (1935). He had such a powerful presence, yet I could not help feeling sorry for the poor soul.
  2. I also liked Cher's choice of channels and thought her comments were very well said.
  3. Somehow I've always associated these movies with India and the city of Bombay. So I thought that Bollywood was like the word Hollywood, except that it was derived from Bombay. *goes back to lurking*
  4. A few older-star shockers come to mind.... Joan Crawford in Strait-Jacket and Bette Davis in both Hush...Hush Sweet Charlotte and The Nanny. Seems like they would come totally unglued at the drop of a pin.
  5. As a kid growing up in the '60's, I can remember buying a candy called Pom-Poms (they were like Milk Duds) and a Coke. Fond memories and good times 40 years ago.
  6. Battle Circus (1953) was listed as scheduled before the movie you mention.
  7. 50's sci-fi and horror rate high atop my list of "guilty pleasures". Here are a fraction of the films I enjoy: Quatermass 2 (1957) Robot Monster (1953) Invaders From Mars (1953) Fiend Without a Face (1957) It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958) The Hideous Sun Demon (1959) First Man Into space (1958) Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957) The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1958) The She Creature (1957) The Man From Planet X (1951) It Conquered the World (1956) Kronos (1957)
  8. I never saw his name credited either here, very near Buffalo, NY where the movie was made. This is what IMDb had to say: As mentioned in Leonard Maltin's biographical piece on Mr. McGavin, he was indeed "curiously" uncredited in "The Natural." During the filming of the movie, Robert Redford was so pleased with Mr. McGavin's portrayal of his character that they began to expand the role. However, after a certain point, union rules dictated that the actor's contract needed to be renegotiated for salary and billing. After haggling on salary, and holding up production of the movie because o
  9. You're welcome! The movie title was easy to come up with after ladymirabelle provided all the details. She deserves all the credit on this one.

And I have to agree that these movies just don't capture my attention like they did when I was a kid. I used to watch the Friday night "Late,Late Show", and was totally mesmerized by films like It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) and Kronos (1957). In those days, for me, it never got much better than that.
  11. Once I saw the words The Outer Limits, I just had to jump in. I was also 8 years old when this series premiered in 1963. Since, I have only found Doctor Who to be as riveting. The episode that featured one of the Zanti Misfits was The Mutant. It had crawled onto one of the colonists who was hiding in a dark cave. What a Misfit was doing in a cave on the remote world Annex One is anyone's guess. Along with the other fine episodes already mentioned, The Man Who Was Never Born and The Bellero Shield, both with Martin Landau, were also well done. This show had the creepiest ali
  12. There was a movie with these players about salvagers in Florida called Reap the Wild Wind (1942).
  13. The actor that I thought was very adept at running a household (and since I feel like Mr. Belvedere around here anyway), was Clifton Webb.
  14. I sure learned a few things about these films thanks to the quality content of the replies. I'd like to make mention of another first-rate film called Them (1954). The fact that our own atomic tests in the desert produced a giant species of ant was a great premise. This film's success spawned many imitations like Tarantula (1955), The Deadly Mantis (1957), The Black Scorpion (1959), and The Beginning of the End (1957). However, Them remains a cut above the rest.
