  1. Oh and they're just lovely darling!
  2. Oh ArmandDuval you have done something here! I love your thread!
  3. Hedy Lamarr being a card shark with Bob Hope and with William Powell Message was edited by: Nikkymo
  4. I've read the Autobiographies of Ginger Rogers, Ava Gardner and I'm more than half-way finished with Maureen O'Hara's. I was already a huge fan of all of these ladies and appreciate them even more so since reading their hand-penned life stories. I'd recommend all three. My next one is Lana Turner's. I didn't finish Bring on the Empty Horses but what I did read was very entertaining. If David Niven hadn't succeeded in acting and I was his career guidance counselor, I'd have suggested writing full time.
  5. I thought I'd revive this thread since Judy is one of my new faves! I saw her in the original Born Yesterday and loved her!! I had seen the remake first years ago and loved it so I was worried I wouldn't like the original. If I see an original or a remake I usually tend to like the one I saw first the most. But I love them both! I love the pitch of Judy's voice, very unexpected! I just recently saw her in Bells are Ringing and I so enjoyed her in it! She was truly under-rated!

  7. Oh you're very welcome GingerRogersFan! My Grandma did have really great taste in movies and so did Great-Grandma! They are without a doubt the reason I love the classics! My Mom is has excellent taste and still recommends some to me but she says I'm passing her now because I watch so many! Ginger is one of the my few fave stars that if she's in a movie you can put money on it I'm going to, love it in most cases, or at the very least like it, a lot! Yes and you must see Monkey Business!
  8. Welcome GingerRogersFan! I'm a huge GR fan and have been since my Grandma recommended that I check her out! I love her in any and everything she does! Pure Magic! Bachelor Mother is one of my recent faves, love her speaking her version of Swedish! I saw Vivacious Lady for the first time earlier this year and have watched it countless times! I love the girlfight scene on the patio!

  10. I use a lot from Calamity Jane w/ Doris Day, Feel it but don't try it, Just in case anymore actresses roll in from Chicagee and She ain't so good lookin, that ain't all she ain't! A lot of Bob Hope, lean to left aim to the right from The Paleface. This one my whole family knows.... I saw something nasty in the woodshed. Someone always replies... Yeah, but did it see you, Baby!! The Un-Classic film it's from is Cold Comfort Farm! Most people regarded it as a sleeper when it first came out but me and my gang love it!
  11. I just went back to the first page of this thread and saw some photos of Ann Miller. Now I've always thought she was very pretty but to me she never looked better than in those first few photos. A little further down from her is a picture of John Gavin, one of the most handsome men to ever draw breath! Love the pics ForeverGarland!!

Hedy is uber feminine and the embodiment of glamour!
  13. MissG : this is one of my all-time favorite Hedy pics! I love the blue background and brown touches, it really makes it pop!
  14. One of my all-time favorite Ginger movies is going to be on this month, if you haven't seen it yet it's a must!! It's called Vivacious Lady and it will be on @ 2pm on Friday the 12th right after Carefree @ 12:30!!
  15. Hiya MissG, As much as I love Clark Gable, to me it was definitely Ava's picture! I was totally rooting for her throughout. Grace is lovely but I admit I always root for the Brunette's, could be I'm a bit biased!! Come to think of it the majority of my fave beauties have dark hair...Hedy, Ava, Kathryn, Elizabeth, Jane.....
  16. Yes I do have a favorite Ava film!! Now I haven't seen them all but so far it's Mogambo!! I've loved her in Show Boat since I was little, so much so that her character made the whole movie melancholy for me. I adore the most recent B&W photo you posted!
  17. Hi there Miss G! I was just wondering if you've read Ava's autobiography yet? I'm about half way through it and I LOVE HER!! I was a fan before but now I'm just over the moon. She was a wonderful person and I love that she was always herself and satisfied with being just that. There are too many things to list that I've discovered about her that have secured her a spot among my favorite ladies of the golden era. Her book is written as though she's talking to an old friend and that's exactly how I feel reading it. To top it all off as stunning as she was she wasn't at all affected by it an

She had a great voice. Love listening to her in "STAGE DOOR." Good call Nikky. *Cinemaven* : Thank you!! I just call em like I hear em! You know I was just thinking, I need to get a Ginger Rogers set of the LUX old time radion shows that I got of Hedy's. Ginger has such animation in her voice I can just put her movies on while I'm doing other things and just hearing her is entertainment! I
  19. This a lovely photo! It looks as if it could've been taken recently. Love it!!
  20. Hi there FlowerJan!! Welcome to the boards!! My name is Nikky and I'm a huge Hedy,Ginger,Doris,Ava.....The list goes on and on! I'm on a Hedy kick right now though. I hope to see you around the boards alot!
  21. I didn't mean to offend anyone. I have never bought a bootleg of a movie before this, myself. I just know how it feels to want to see something and can't. I would never have bought the last one if it was available any other way. I know some/many may disagree with me but I don't feel as bad buying a movie that is not available at all, now I would never buy a copy of a film that has an official release. For example, a movie that has just been released to the theaters. It's one thing to be impatient or want to see something cheaply, it's somewhat different to want to see something that may not b
  22. First let me say that I don't condone pirating! Ok that being said... I don't condone it except in times of desperation! As we all know there are movies that are currently unavailable to purchase on dvd, some are not even available at all. I found (while browsing for Hedy stuff) a website called ioffer.com, some of you may have already heard of it. There are lots of classic movies there that are not available for purchase and I have seen quite a few for only $5, the average price is about $8. I ordered my first one a couple of weeks ago and the quality is great, I have no complaints with the s
  23. I love Ginger's speaking voice! I would've loved for her to have done the voice for a Disney character!
  24. I just wanted to get a consensus on how everyone felt about the reviving of old threads? I find my self browsing through some of the older threads while waiting for new posts in my usual haunts. I want to reply but I don't want to flood the boards with old threads sending the new ones back if everyone would rather Let Sleeping Dogs Lie. I think it's a good way to get things stirred up expecially when there's a lull in the threads you post most often in, which seems to be rampant in my favorites. Well everyone, weigh in with your opinions.
  25. It's funny you should mention that HamRadio!! I just saw that clip not too long ago. It was in the special features of a dvd i rented. I can't remember which it was though.
