  1. How about Susan Hayward, or Barbara Stanwyck, or Lauren Bacall. So many strong actresses, these r just a few!! Loved Bette Davis last month. I just love TCM my favorite channel of all the hundreds I hv. I am not into this late Sunday silent night stuff though wish it was a weekday instead for that,  I'm only 63 so it was before my baby boomer time. John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Burt Lancaster, William Holden, and Good old Kirk Douglas I imagine they hv already done. Good old Blondell I remember from gunsmoke series lol.

  2. Wow if only wishes came true..my pic would b first my favorite John Wayne hands down...but close behind is sam elliott.. clint eastwood...Charles Bronson ..burt lancaster...kirk Douglas...james stewart and Gary cooper..oh the list could get long..if only I was born sooner in life ****.

    They all share a similar attraction...suave...smart...cool...quiet but a strong gentle strength...and so gentle protective & caring of their ladies. On screen and off my ideal men...strong handsome and honorable!!. Oh & when they talk could melt butter sam elliott especially & their mustaches. Yummy.

  3. I am new back on here 3 clues..hv no idea I thought that movie was already guessed by u..Boomtown. .If I u posted a new quiz I sure don't see it?? Musicals I do not know I only saw that clue #3..edited I saw the 2 other clues but I guess I am outta my league on this.I don't care for musicals so hv little knowledge of them sorry lol.

    I was hoping for easier fun quizzes this is to complicated for me..lol


  4. Actually I saw it at home on a bl/white tv in my bedroom lol..and i was so scared i covered my mirrors drew the drapes and hid under the covers all that night!  I never told mum and dad..they never wanted me watching the african queen but i hid under the diningroom table. Nothing scary about that movie. I think it was the exorcist that did a number on me at 19 yrs old was seeing and sensing things for wks afterwards.

    New quiz..princess.??

     


  5. True I remember the movie I don't like eatching those types of movies on blindness touches a nerve close to home but I wish she was alive today she would hv had alot of issues to fight for south of the border..i read she was actually a relative of Lizzie borden!


  6. Being so young perhaps she didn't think about it or hv the time but maybe I was reading where u got alot of your comments on an article I am reading sums up exactly everything u said word for word. Perhaps she is, gone, but not forgotten..hey I wonder if kirk Douglas is writing one on how to make it to 100 lol..my father made it to 96. Good clean living thank-you again. Oh I just read pilato did interviews with liz. Queen of the tv movies lol. ?

    Apparently "a case of rape" was one of the highest rated tv movies ever back then. I remember her powerful role in that. Still subjects of today too.


  7. Yup i am cdn and proud of it but i envy California's constant sunshine..and no snow..i thrive in the sunny summers here outdoors.. remember drive in movies? First movie I ever saw at one was gone with the wind wow. We usually get alot of sunshine here in Barrie (60 miles) north of Toronto but this last year has been pretty cloudy gloomy..may b after effects of all those nasty hurricanes and things we needlessly keep sticking in space. 

    Thankful for TCM takes me on a journey to mostly simpler & happy times. Easy rider lol. Wel if u exclude the wars..i do really like the war movies its good to know our history on both sides of the border and william holden and cliff robertson accomplished that in the devils brigade. I know about the depression but I think it's worse now at least I hv a much better understanding due to the docs. I watch and the movies that really tell the story on those to me periods..my favorite line

    "Based on a true story" lol

    Oh and I already get tons of stations in my Rogers cable Pkg but TCM.. AMC and Silver screen classics r my favorites over any new movie channels I get..go figure..when I was young and hip I wouldn't hv been caught watching an old movie now I hv a real appreciation for them..groovy! Lol

     


  8. I agree..I am cdn so the politics below the border I leave to people who know what they r talking about. We are a peaceful country and don't intice trouble. I Iiked Liz very much and I am about the age now we lost her then. Yes she was very maternal. As i said she opened the doors for woman in lead roles..lindsay wagner in the 70's was one..lucille ball in the 50's and up..oh the list then was endless.

    Look at actreses like "Michelle Yeoh the talented martial arts actress who was in a bond movie has a ton of movie achievements in her craft and does her own stunts. The quiet talent.

     Seems since u had a black president there are alot more colored movies on I hv never seen before too I notice.

     I heard about the decade channel but again sadly it's not available in Canada bummer would love it too.  I don't know why..heck I use to love Marcus welby M.D. Robert young and Chad Everett medical Centre.  What is ironic is alot of those illnesses back then on those shows are around today..go figure. Makes u wonder lol.


  9. Yes Bronson was another great. Elizabeth sadly cancer got her was really on a role literally..she was doing that new p.i. series show near the end but she did alot of diverse roles that touched on some important subjects..kind of the Michaela Quinn of the 60 -70's. I miss her along with so many. Even watching the Oscars now without burt...kirk..peck..Lucy..Diller it just isn't the same..I would love to see a flashback of the old Oscars I do look them up on utube...it's a whole different world now..I miss the 60's so much. They didn't swear on tv either...where has the respect gone..but ya Elizabeth was 1 woman that opened the door for the trail that followed wasn't she?
