  1. Hi all. As you might recall from my earlier post that I am a new Vic Morrow fan. I was captivated by the absolutely phenominal job he did (in my opinion) as Artie West in Blackboard Jungle. So I've started watching other performances (I've ordered Men at War and Glass House but they haven't arrived yet) that have come on TCM. So far I've watched Cimarron (it was fun seeing he and Glenn Ford together again) and the Bad News Bears. From what I've seen and the research I've done it seems that Vic mainly played bit parts. Yes, he has a catalog of work to his name but other than Combat and maybe on
  2. Thanks for posting the photos of Victor! I am a new fan and am currently checking out movies he was in. He was a real cutie in the 50's and 60's but I must agree, he didn't age well from what I've seen. I watched Blackboard Jungle again the other night and it seems like each time I watch it I notice something new. For example, did anyone else notice that during the scene were they were watching Jack and the Beanstalk Vic's character was sitting at his desk fiddling around with the knife he pulls on Glen's character just a few scenes away? Was that put in on purpose? I mean why wouldn't the tea
  3. Is Blackboard Jungle available in color? I don't mind black and white but it would be nice to see it in color.
  4. One more note...I'm looking into buying a few of the films suggested and when I type in "Vic Morrow" undoubtedly "The Twilight Zone" appears. Of course this is heart gushing considering the facts but part of me thinks I should buy it because he gave his life for it...if that makes sense...anyone seen it? What are your thoughts? How were they able to finish the movie since he died making it? Was that the last scene or something?
  5. Thank you for the movie suggestions, I will definately be checking out more of Vic's work. He caught my eye for sure...such talent! I'm wondering if Jennifer Jason Leigh chose to change her name, in part at least, because Vic wasn't really a part of her life. This is speculation of course but speaking from personal experience with my own dad, when parents divorce, a lot of times the fathers tend to drift away from their children. I'm not saying that's the case here but I do wonder. I too chose to drop my dad's last name a few years after my folks divorced because my dad wasn't a real part
  6. Thanks for the replies and the welcome. I am a movie fan so I'm glad I found this site. As for Jennifer Jason Leigh....I've seen a lot of her films. I knew of her before Vic morrow since she was more in my time than he was. Yes, she has talent and is a good actress. She's not one of my favorites though and some scenes in a few of her movies are rather...unneccessary I guess is the word. Maybe I'm old fashioned. I wonder what Vic would think. I know he'd be proud overall but still. I find it ironic she was trying to escape the "Vic Morrow's kid" label when anyone looking at her would know insta
  7. Hi all. I am new to the forums. My recent research on Vic Morrow brought me here. I am in my early thirties and am a teacher. My mom requested that I watch "Blackboard Jungle" since it depicts many of the issues I face. I was captivated by Vic Morrow. As I watched it though I kept saying to myself, "I know that face from somewhere" and then it hit me...Jennifer Jason Leigh! There is no denying she is his daughter for they look so much alike! After researching Vic Morrow I'm questioning why he and Jennifer were estranged. Does anyone know? I can't believe he only left her $100 bucks...seem
