  1. Did anyone see the other day Laurel & Hardy's films in other languages? What are your impressions?
  2. I'd love to see "Souls at Sea" (1937). It might be available soon on demand like the 1938 "*Spawn of the North*" which I purchased recently. I watched recently France in "*The Silver Cord*" (1933) and I was completely impressed by her powerful performance as Eric Linden's fianc?e. In fact the three women featured in this film: Frances, Ms. Dunne and most of all, Laura Hope Crews as the very nasty, manipulative and domineering mum of McCrea and Linden and who has the showiest role of all, pretty much carry the whole picture.
  3. I agree with you April, having not seen Miss Dunne's version, the 1941 film version of Back Street is superior than the 1961 glossy remake.
  4. > {quote:title=MissGoddess wrote:}{quote} > Hola, Feo! > > I agree about book to movie adaptations, at least so long as it isn't a story I'm really, really partial to. You know what other James story this one reminds me of? "The Turn of the Screw" and I thought its screen version in Deborah Kerr's The Innocents was just as well done as The Lost Moment. Both have a similar, haunting attraction and I feel they captured the essence, at least, of the stories. And both feel more effective in black-in-white. > > Martin Gabel---his name was so familiar and then you say he
  5. I wrote this mini-opinion on "The Lost Moment", last year when I watched it; It may contain **mild spoilers**: But the film which made this weekend worthwhile was one I recorded off Cinecanal Classics: "The Lost Moment" (1947), an eerie, gothic atmospheric, mysterious film based upon a Henry James novel titled "The Aspern Papers". I have not read James' novel but the film is truly enthralling and absorbing, with an intriguing plot and very good performances. It is the kind of film that captures my attention completely making me forget the world. It is set in Venice where an A
  6. > {quote:title=MissGoddess wrote:}{quote} > > I have a bunch of DVDs I'm working through, and one of them I just have to quickly mention because I never even heard of it until a kind gentleman sent me a copy. It's called THE LOST MOMENT (1947) and it's based on Henry James' "The Aspern Papers", a story I'd read long ago but never realized it had been filmed, at least not this early. Susan Hayward stars and in spite of my occasional annoyance with Robert Cummings in other films, he was good here. > > At first I was curious how Susan would be in a period setting, I never
  7. I respect your opinion coopsgirl. You don't come off harsh at all just honest. I can't stand much of Brando. My wife, like you loathes Leslie Howard. Everyone's entitled to his/her own tastes

  9. Re. Brook's Hairdo I agree. You have a point there. I think I also have "*Diary of a Lost Girl*" somewhere. I gotta watch that one.
  10. > {quote:title=coopsgirl wrote:}{quote} > Neil Hamilton made a good supporting actor but not a leading one. He was a pretty good actor, but I could never see him as irreplaceable or anything like that. > > The one that really befuddles me is Wendell Corey. How he ever got a single role much less a 21 year career is beyond me. I havent seen him do a good job yet and unfortunately hes in quite a few movies with people I like. He had absolutely no charisma and very little acting ability. > > Some people are pretty good actors and can carve out a nice career for themselv
  11. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > > > Feaito- I am so glad you are over here! Don't forget, Hedy was also a scientist and inventor with a strong mathematical mind. Poor thing. Trapped in Hollywood, forced to wear beautiful dresses and have her hair and makeup done, while starring opposite Clark Gable, John Garfield and Victor Mature..... > > Message was edited by: JackFavell Thanks Wendy. I read Lamarr's "Ecstasy and Me" and I enjoyed it. She was indeed a clever, skilled woman! Have you seen her in Experiment Perilous? _Good_ film!

Interestingly, her stated favorite actress was Margaret Sullavan, who actually to my mind LOOKS like Louise! (it's the mouth and eyes) > > Message was edited by: Bronxgirl48 Thanks Bronxgirl, I love Louise Brooks. My younger brother who also likes Classic Cinema, fell in love with her after seeing her photograph. Recently I watched Pabst's "Pandora's Box" and I was blown away by her performance, naturaln

I love hearing how much you admire all of these lovely and very talented actresses from the Golden Age. You must have a hard time keeping up with all of the stuff that is available on the TCM feed for the U.S. and Canada, I think the last
  14. Wow!! I?m amazed with all the clever insight, elaborate opinions and in-depth-analysis I?ve read on this thread. I feel honored to be exchanging ideas with all of you ladies and gentlemen. Theresa, as for favorite actresses, crushes, most appealing females?..mmmm?.I must admit that for years I have stated everywhere that Hedy Lamarr was the most alluring, ravishing, sexy, sensuous beauty of them all?..sooo perfect?..Lamarrvellous! Who can top Hedy when she enters the stage in the Ziegfeld number in ?Ziegfeld Girl? (1941). Too beautiful to be true; too classy: too perfect; green eyes and bl
