  1. Well, great choices. little wifey! I think I might have recommended Yankee Doodle Dandy.... what did I do that for? He'll probably chew it up and spit it out....
  2. GAD! How many musicals did you WATCH? and how did you survive? My favorites from your list in order are: Yankee Doodle Dandy - it's got everything. I love the comedy, the patriotism is spot on, and the lighting is terrific for the musical stage numbers. Cagney so deserved the Oscar. A terrific movie. Best of so many kinds. Woman Wanted - I love the butler, I love Maureen, I love Joel. I love eveyrthing about this one. I like the lightness of it. Ruggles of Red Gap (one of the BEST character actor movies EVER) Another very patriotic film, disguised as a comedy. Even though it's got C
  3. Oh, you've hit on some of my very favorite performances! I love Guinness, and especially the Ealing comedies - probably BECAUSE they have so much ridiculous villainy in them! Perfect. The Ladykillers and The Man in the White Suit are my favorites, but Kind Hearts and Coronets is way up there, and then Lavender Hill Mob comes in right after that. As far as ambiguous, I think you hit on the right word... in The Apartment for instance, there are some terribly unpleasant characters = Mr. Dobisch and Mr. Eichelberger are bad enough... but then Sheldrake takes the cake... and all in a button dow
  4. Oh! Those are great! Darn this website. When I come on, sometimes the top two replies don't post right away... so I didn't see this back and forth before. I love Denver just a little better than Annie Laurie Starr, but it's close! love your choices for me! I was thinking Wagon Master. I also know her love of Ben Johnson and Joseph Calleia. I'd love to see Sabu. He's one of my favorites thanks to Jackie. Oh man, this is making me feel guilt for the ones I am cutting. Do you think anyone would get upset if I came back as 12 different screen names? Yeah, probably not a good idea.
  5. Yeah, Amy got me too. I'm glad to know that I CAN use all of them eventually. Right now for me, it's between Amy and Irena. I have an animated gif of Stymie sitting on a turntable going round and round, but that would drive everyone nuts. It makes me laugh when I look at it though.
  6. I am sorry that you did not find this more entertaining. It does not have great emotional depth but it is in this way similar to other movies of its ilk. I believe that the same could be said of: The Sword in the Stone (1963), The AristoCats (1970) and Lady and the Tramp (1955). I feel that casting Terry-Thomas as: Sir Hiss was a stroke of genius. It is nearly type-casting as he does snake-in-the-grass roles so very well. He was strikingly similar characters in: Those Daring Young Men in Their Jaunty Jalopies (1969).and Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965). I remem
  7. Should we all contribute and make suggestions for Jackie's avatar or are you preferring to go "incognito", Miss Favell? I can't decide if I like the self-satisfied Jack or the mock-confiding Jack or the quizzical, supercilious Jack. Right now it's a toss up between self-satisfied and mock-confiding. I have the same problem with Stymie. One of these two. This one is just perfect! Great choice, Sansfin.I'm very close to picking it.... This one though, just grabbed my heart. Frank? Any suggestions before I decide?
  8. Should we all contribute and make suggestions for Jackie's avatar or are you preferring to go "incognito", Miss Favell? ??? I didn't even realize I could do an avatar over here! It's so nice to hear from you too, Big Kahuna Island Girl Lady of the Tropics! I can't possibly have Alan Marshal for my avatar... though I remember liking White Cliffs of Dover as a kid, Marshal is just too bland for me. I'm thinking George would be much more appropriate, or perhaps my other favorite rascal, STYMIE.
  9. I'll give it a whack, sure. I always have a hard time picking your faves, because in my head, I always pick MY faves instead. It's more what I WANT to be your favorites than a rational judgment of what you might like best. But I do TRY to get over that, and work out what things you like and how you might react to different movies. 1. Finding Nemo 2. UP 3. Little Miss Sunshine 4. The Grand Budapest Hotel 5. Good Will Hunting Now I have a problem. I kept trying to insert Beauty and the Beast on here. I think you'd like the Beast and that part of the story....but maybe it's too g
  10. Curse of the Were- Rabbit! Yeah! Love that one. And Ratatouille is good too. I was surprised at Monsters U - it was quite good, though not my favorite by any means. Alice and I still make whale noises like Dory in Finding Nemo... we laugh hard at that. You seem to be in Indie-land, which are the movies I like to see. Really liked Little Miss Sunshine (anything with Alan Arkin is OK in my book) despite the shock value of some of the film. Maybe because it's so politically incorrect. It really got me. Also really liked Life Aquatic and The Darjeeling Limited. The Grand Budapest Hotel was qui
  11. LOL! It's good to have passion after so long a time! And besides your eight year old sweetie might be ugly now or unspeakably bad.
