  1. Lou Gehrig (Pride of the Yankees) An Affair to Remember The Diary of Ann Frank A Night to Remember
  2. How about Lucille Ball? I love Lucy, but she went a bit far. I think Joan Crawford did too, more so than Bette.
  3. Yes, her accent seemed so natural. Loved her blonde hair too. That was a good film - I had seen it once a long while ago, so this was like watching it for the first time.
  4. Just watched "Tomorrow is Forever" on TCM last week with Natalie in it when was about 6 or 7, (before Miracle on 34th St.). She was so mature and talented even at that age!
  5. Those I can think of offhand in addition to some already named: Charlton Heston - Ben Hur Charlton Heston - The Ten Commandments Dustin Hoffman - The Graduate Jimmy Stewart - It's a Wonderful Life Liz Taylor - Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe Marlon Brando - A Streetcar Named Desire Marlon Brando - On the Waterfront Judy Garland - The Wizard of Oz Message was edited by: Birdgirl Message was edited by: Birdgirl
  6. I taped it but haven't seen it yet. I had my recorder set up until 10:00 pm and put on tmc and saw that Rake's wasn't over yet. So I started recording the rest but it will have a lapse of about 30 seconds. When I watch it, I'll let you know.
  7. I just watched it this week - saw it long ago and couldn't remember the details. Loved the way it ended! But going back to your question.... Bette Davis and Anne Baxter do seem right for the parts. I think when you see 2 good stars in a good movie they pretty much seal it and it's hard to imagine anyone else capturing their roles. But it would be interesting to come up with fantasy ideas of substitutes. Like maybe Joan Crawford or Barbara Stanwyck for Margo and Elizabeth Taylor or Joan Fontaine for Eve.
  8. Don't know if these count, but on Broadway I've seen: Melanie Griffith, John Ritter, Henry Winkler, Anthony Quinn, Carol Channing, Raul Julia, & Sarah Jessica Parker. (all I can think of for now) I also saw Kevin Bacon while walking on the street in NY and we sort of exchanged nods.
  9. I was looking at upcoming showings this week on TCM and noticed two that sounded interesting: "Babbitt" and "The Rake's Progress". I haven't seen either. Can anyone offer an opinion on these - are they worth watching?
  10. Thank you, Iz. BTW, I'm still a novice on this message board. I just now realized how to respond to a subsequent poster rather than the whole board (original post), so (everyone) please bear with me.
  11. Obviously, I didn't. I misunderstood the years in parentheses, I thought they meant newer versions of the film.
  12. I just tried looking up the rating for Psycho (1960) and it isn't even rated. The later versions were rated R. The only thing I would imagine the 1960 version would be rated R for (if it were rated), according to MPAA's criteria would be for the violence. I don't remember any nudity. In the shower scene, Janet Leigh wasn't fully exposed, just flashes of parts of her body and nothing you wouldn't see at the beach. Even if there was full nudity, it would've have to have been sexually orientated. The following gives a lot of info on the rating system: http://www.mpaa.org/FlmRat_Ratings.a
  13. In addtion to some already posted, Primal Fear had a great end twist!
  14. I'm not sure that Bette Davis was known for her beauty, although she was pretty when she was very young. I think she is admired beyond her looks for her acting. She owned the characters she portrayed and I couldn't imagine anyone else playing in those roles.
