  1. I have no idea what that means, but a film is a film, regardless of whether it is shown theatrically or not. The Glenn Close version of South Pacific is a film. They did tamper with it. That was one of its biggest problems. Glenn Close as star and executive producer was at the core of all its problems. As you say, Mary Martin's age wasn't a factor because it was on stage, not film; and, she exuded tons of energy. As for Peter Pan, when you're a woman playing a boy, age isn't really an issue.
  2. My suggestion would be to do another remake. This one has already been remade.
  3. I find Lawrence of Arabia impossible to sit through, even without the other two films. B O R I N G
  4. The American Film Institute is no more qualified to determine what is best, than anyone else. In fact, they really ought to be ashamed of themselves for lowering themselves to the level of pitting one film against another. That's not their mission, but with their endless obsession with publishing lists, you'd think it was.
  5. Such a great actress. I love her in most everything, especially The Snake Pit.
  6. I'm not sure what you mean by your comment, but Glenn Close did do a film version, not a stage version. Nellie Forbush is a naive, very young "cockeyed optimist". Someone in their 50s would have been around the block a few times. She was horribly miscast (she cast herself) in the role.
  7. Apparently, the same audacity that Glenn Close displayed, demanding to do a role in South Pacific she was 3 decades too old to play.
  8. Are you saying that they are your favorites in musicals?
  9. I've not been here very long, but I've found a plethora of these threads. They're all equally ridiculous. Apparently these people (if they are actually different people), know nothing about TCM. The station has shown this mix of mostly older and newer films, since it went on the air in 1994. Nothing different. Nothing new. Just more great titles than ever before.
  10. This is one of the worst films ever made, to me. Someone would have to pay me a great deal of money to ever sit through it again. :-)
  11. That was Estelle Sloane. Yes, she is superb! She was a regular dancer on The Colgate Comedy Hour.
  12. Peggy Ann Garner in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense Dean Stockwell in pretty much anything!
  13. I didn't say that anyone said he was an idiot. But, he would be one, if he didn't credit The Sound of Music with giving him a boost in his career.
