  1. *Laurence Olivier* was rumored to have been in a relationship with none other than *Danny Kaye*
  2. After watching *Poltergeist* earlier, and even though I had seen it many times before, I always wonder if Dominique Dunne's character, the oldest Freeling daughter, was supposed to have a larger role or were there any scenes of hers cut from the film. It seems like the character is extraneous, with the two younger children, especially Carol Ann, being the focus, and could easily have been easily removed from the movie while it still retained what was so great about it. I believe there's a few scenes which were edited out and am hoping that one day there will be full director's cut of the movi
  3. I generally don't like the Hollywood remake machine, but the few times I have seen *Cassandra Crossing*, I've thought the movie could be worth with a redo especially with the special effects and script, it would be MUCH better.

  5. Three of my favorites (there are so many, some which have already been mentioned) are: *One for the Angels*: Lew Bookman (Ed Wynn), a small time salesman, makes "a pitch for the angels" in order to save the life a young girl. *Nothing In The Dark*: An old woman holes herself away in her home, fearing Death is waiting outside. When a young policeman (Robert Redford) is wounded and dying outside her doorway, she is reluctant to help him. *The Invaders*: A flying saucer lands in the attic of the home of a poor, rural woman (Agnes Moorehead). Frightened, she eventually gains enough

  16. Currently showing on TCM as part of their Frank Sinatra day for Summer Under The Stars. As much as I love "The Philadelphia Story", and probably because of that, I can never find myself enjoying the musical version of the same story. A lot of the problem is the cast -- I like Frank Sinatra in many of his movie roles and I also like him as a singer but he seems wrong in this movie, as if his character is made to be too much out of his element. Even more out of place is Bing Crosby, who doesn't project the right amount of sophistication that Cary Grant did in the original and who has little c
  17. *Jerry Stiller* is the some-time costar of his son *Ben Stiller*
  18. http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/aug/28/laurel-hardy-slapstick A fine mess: the enduring appeal of Laurel and Hardy In the Great Depression, they bypassed the pathos of Charlie Chaplin and went straight for slapstick laughs every time.

The troupe's main attraction was a rising London-born music hall star called Charles Chaplin. Th
  19. Wasn't there a character by the name of Froggy who had a very raspy voice? That could not have been his real voice, could it? If not, how did they do the vocal trickery?

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday unveiled a 44-cent Honeymooners stamp picturing the TV icon and his co-star Art Carney.

  22. *Claude Rains* One of Claude Rains most memorable roles was that of Captain Renault in *Casablanca* which starred *Humphrey Bogart*
  23. Classic films are simply that, classics. But they are all of their own time and in this modern time, some things might seem very out-dated. In this thread, take an old movie and update it, either in the title or plot. Some examples: Then: *Dial M For Murder*; Now: *Text "M For Murder* Then: *Rear Window*; Now: *Rear Webcam*
  24. *Steve McQueen* was romantically involved with *Mamie van Doren* (among others)
