  2. Yes, that's the general idea. To further the chain... Henry Fonda (father of) Jane Fonda Message was edited by: edonline
  3. So, I had this idea for a game. Let's see how many movie stars / celebrities we can link together, without naming the same person twice. The rules are pretty simple. I start the link with the first person, how they are linked to the second and then the second person. The next poster uses the second person, adds another link and then a third name, and so on. Any celebrity can be named, living or dead, as long as they haven't been mentioned already. The link must be that the two people are connected in some way (costars, related by family or marriage, etc.) so that the two aren't just rand

Can't to see a fully realized version of "Metropolis"! http://film.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,,2288990,00.html Missing scenes from Fritz Lang's Metropolis turn up after 80 years Kate Connolly in Berlin Thursday July 3, 2008 guardian.co.uk The cinematic world was today celebrating the rediscovery of missing scenes from German director Fritz Lang's legendary silent film Metropolis - thought lost for 80 years, until they were found in the archive of a museum in Argentina. Key scenes cut from the science fiction picture - either because they were considered to be too brutal
  6. The article linked below which appeared in the (UK) Guardian is a good commentary about the passing of Hollywood's stars, especially following the death of Cyd Charisse.

She was 86. Charisse was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday after suffering an apparent heart attack, said her publicist, Gene Schwam. She appeared in dramatic films, but her fame came from the Technicolor musicals of the 1940s and 1950s. Classically tr

It appears that Paul Newman doesn't want to confirm or deny the cancer reports. http://www.reuters.com/article/entertainmentNews/idUSN1037414920080611?feedType=RSS&feedName=entertainmentNews Paul Newman responds cryptically to cancer reports Tue Jun 10, 2008 9:31pm EDT By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-winning actor Paul Newman, responding to a flurry of unconfirmed reports he is gravely ill with cancer, issued a terse, cryptic statement on Tuesday that shed little light on his actual condition. "Newman says he's doing nicely," his spokesman, Jeff Sanderson, s

The Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid actor, 83, has been suffering from ill health for many months and in May was forced to pull out of directing a production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men. Two U.S. publications quote friends of the actor saying the former chain-smoker has been diagnosed with lung cancer at the New York?s Sloan-Kettering Can
  10. Several scenes in "Big Night" (1996) with Tony Shaloub and Stanley Tucci, especially when they're preparing the feast for their expected guest, Louis Prima.
  11. At last, the perfect movie for Tom Cruise and Kat(i)e Holmes!
  12. "Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast." -- "King Kong"
  13. In my opinion, "Suddenly, Last Summer" isn't a very good introduction to Montgomery Clift. Although he's an excellent actor, the movie itself is just too over the top, bordering on ridiculousness, even for Tennessee Williams. If you want some really good Monty, I'd suggest the aforementioned "From Here To Eternity", "The Heiress" with Olivia de Havilland, "A Place In The Sun" with Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters, or "Red River" with John Wayne.
  14. Fritz Lang's "Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler" came out in 1922. The sequel "The Testament of Dr. Mabuse" came out in 1933. It's the earliest I know.

  16. No personal haunted Hollywood stories but I do remember these two: Jayne Mansfield owned a mansion which was nicknamed The Pink Palace since it was her favorite color and had many rooms painted and decorated in pink. Years after her death, the new homeowners tried to paint over one of the rooms but the pink color kept coming through even after several layers of paint. In George ("Superman") Reeves' home where he committed suicide (also rumored to be murder), people reported hearing a gunshot and then someone moaning. BTW, the "Three Men and A Baby" haunting is fake. The little bo
  17. I enjoyed this movie too and would like to see more. I also got a kick out of Robert Osborne's "whoo hoo!" At the end of the year, they should do a RO "Best Of" and include it.
  18. Joan Crawford watches one of her real earlier movies in "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" I forget the title though.
  19. http://film.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,,2266795,00.html Oscar-winning actor Paul Scofield dies Thursday March 20, 2008 guardian.co.uk The British actor Paul Scofield, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons, has died, aged 86. His agent said he died peacefully yesterday in hospital near his Sussex home after being diagnosed with leukaemia. Scofield was voted to have produced the finest ever performance as Shakespeare's King Lear by his contemporaries and was widely thought of as one of the best actors of his generation. He mad
  20. Add my vote to those who would like to see some newsreels featured on TCM, perhaps in between feature films or as a seperate program.
  21. Yes, I did mean "Sunset Blvd.", don't know where I got "Hollywood Blvd." from. While I did enjoy Bette in AOE, I think Gloria Swanson should have won.
  22. Watching "All About Eve" again, reminds me of the frequent discussions about the Academy Awards of 1951. Nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role were Judy Holliday ("Born Yesterday"), Anne Baxter and Bette Davis ("All About Eve"), Eleanor Parker ("Caged") and Gloria Swanson ("Hollywood Blvd.") with the award going to Judy Holliday. It seemed like a strange choice considering that Judy Holliday was nominated for a comedy, going up against four actresses in dramas, two of whom (Davis and Baxter) were nominated for the same motion picture. Furthermore, "All About Eve" won many major
  23. As part of the Essentials series, TCM recently showed a Laurel and Hardy double-feature with the short "The Music Box" and the longer length "Sons Of The Desert" and just these two films alone show what a great comedy team they were. I don't think any other comedy act comes close to how they performed their routines. The Three Stooges were too mean-spirited and frenetic, and with the changes to the original Stooges following Shemp (Curly Howard, Joe Besser, Curly Joe DeRita) showed that some members weren't irreplaceable. Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin weren't really a comedy act per se, with
  24. Definitely a movie for its time. In the 80s, the then Soviet Union was still a formidable enemy. Nuclear war still seemed possible. And computers were becoming more and more evident, with some people thinking that could control everything one day.
