  1. YES, Reed Hadley DID play Zorro in a 1939 Republic serial called 'Zorro's Fighting Legion'. I saw this on TV when a teenager - and the Conestogas were still running!!.
  2. Arturo, thank you for your appreciation of Ms. Darnell with Cregar. AND, for knowledge of the serialization of TMOZ, which probably WAS at Republic, which could do GOOD stuff. I am going to check into Reed Hadley's career and see if he might have played Zorro - the fox.
  3. HE IS the most dynamic presence in 'Casablanca' - bar none, and Conrad Veidt in Rick's bar with the caviar and the dossier on Blaine comes in a close second. Rains also dominates everything in the 1946 'Deception' as Davis' composer mentor and paramour, The wide gambit of emotions he brings forth is marvelous. All that great work, when he, Davis, and Henried all knew the Hays office would force them to put an ending on the film that was just ludicrous.
  4. I thought Rita's best moment in Shanghai was at the end - lying on the floor and finally grasping the moment of truth, when she yells out, 'Michael, I don't want to die.' As for Orson, I got a little tired of his Irish 'accent'. Favorite unanswered question from the dialogue is when Rita - referring to Everett's character - asks Welles' character, 'Would you like to know what he has on me? Arthur, why don't you tell him?' And, darn it, we don't find out what it is.
  5. It's hard to beat 'Out of the Past' and 'The Killers'. Also the one whose title escapes me right now with Dick Powell and Clair Trevor, where Moose Malloy wants Powell to find MY VELMA!
  6. MY favorite role for Ms. Darnell is in the something-like 1945 movie for Fox, Hangover Square, with Laird Cregar playing the psychotic composer and pianist, who is smitten with Darnell's character, who uses him shamelessly to write material for him and then denies him her 'charms'. Perhaps it will be among her films shown. Re TMOZ - does anyone know if that was ever a serial. If so, was Reed Hadley in the role? If not, what serial did Reed Hadley don a black costume very similar to that of Z? Appreciate any enlightenment here.
