  1. I think that your insights are interesting. Deborah Kerr's primness, however, made her character even more believable. And think how well she pulled off the last scenes when she rejects Burt's character when he decides not to become an officer. Rita Hayworth may not have been so convincing. Your right about Joan Crawford. Thank God she was not cast for that role.

  2. Bits of dialogue from "Sweet Smell of Success" - great stuff. How about when JJ is standing in the street with Sydney and watching a drunk get thrown out of the bar next door. "I love this filthy town." Or when JJ says in the phone again to Sydney, "You're dead son, now go get yourself buried." Great stuff.

  3. I am sure that this will cause some groans, but I think that the best dramatic actor is Burt Lancaster. Yes, Burt Lancaster. I may be alone in this belief, but think about it, when did he ever make a false step? He was excellent in everything from "The Killers" to "Field of Dreams." My favorite Lancaster films are Sweet "Smell of Success" and "Elmer Gantry." Any other Lancaster fans out there?
