  1. I'm 22 and I am convinced that I was born at the wrong time. I watch TCM so much that if every other channel went off the air, I'd hardly even notice. I drive my friends crazy and they always tell me that I should have been born back in the earlier part of the 20th Century. (In fact, just the other day my professor had asked the class if anyone had seen All About Eve. Of course, I was the only one to raise my hand...and mind you, this is a THEATRE MAJORS class!!) Just goes to show how limited we classic movie lovers are!! Some of my fave actors include: Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Crawford, Be
  2. In no particular order... Citizen Kane Sunset Boulevard House on Haunted Hill (Vincent Price) A Star is Born Mildred Pierce Shindler's List All About Eve Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte Now, Voyager Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
  3. Oh my goodness, I have been away from these boards for far too long--long enough to re-register again!! I am currently in my last year at Bridgewater State and I have a show coming up--Theatre on the Edge--which will be performed this weekend. It is a collection of ten one-act plays and I have been very busy in rehearsals and such. So, hello again, dahlings, I've missed you all. See you on the boards!!
  4. What is the parody that Carol does? I still haven't seen that one. I stil have to see the GWTW one and the Mildred Pierce spoofs.
  5. Oh, I am!! Thanks so much for asking, Mr. Demille!!
  6. Anyone here in love with Sunset Boulevard?? I am!! And consider this my grand entrance back onto the boards! I've missed my fellow TCMers!! (Today is my 22nd birthday!!!)
  7. When I was reading a book on Lucille Ball and flipping through the photo section of backstage pics the book had of I Love Lucy, I discovered that my uncle looks exactly like--actually, the SPLITTING IMAGE of Robert (Bob) Asher!!! I shared it with him and my aunt and my family and everyone agreed. I thought that was cool and very weird when I came across it. I also was in a play just a few months ago with a girl whose eyes looked exactly like Joan Crawford's. I told her and of course I added, "It's a good thing!" and she appreciated the compliment. My step-father looks like the Sprint g
  8. Donald O'Connor never fails to make me chuckle in his "Make Em Laugh" scene in Singin in the Rain. Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn together in Bringing Up Baby, especially the "I just turned GAY all of a sudden!!" Judy Garland has her moments, too. Especially poking fun by singing "Vhen I Looooock at You..." in Presenting Lily Mars. The Marx Bros: "Any closer and I'd be behind you!" and "No, no. That was a typo. 'passed out', not 'passed away'. Well, here I am! Where's my lovely wife?" ~~~ But to put it as a more general post: Lucille Ball, Donald O'Connor, Red Skelton, J
  9. Twinktab-- I don't think it could have been put more bluntly or truthfully. In fact, just last night a friend and I were on the road and she was asking me if I had seen "such-n-such" a film and "such-n-such another film" and I began to explain basically what you just stated now in this thread. Then I concluded my rant to her with, "Look, if it isn't in black and white, I don't watch it." And I think I made my point to her.
  10. I am so very glad someone else is noticing, too! ~~~ In my opinion, today's stars are losing theirlooks along with theirsanity. I also think that they just simply "Don't Give a Damn" anymore about anything--what movies boost their careers, family ties, etc. etc. It is really, to put it bluntly, quite sad. That's why I thank TCM for still showing actors who still"Give a Damn."
  11. True, but you made a good point so I thank you.
  12. Again...I am flattered. ~~~ The most recent role I was in was an ensemble part in Big Love. Actually, the roles of all the women (very heavy women-based show)were as equally important as the leads, another thing I learned through my training here at school. The play is based a Greek Tragedy in which these 50 sisters (there were really only 15 of us for the stage) have arranged marriages to their cousins (it gets worse) and the group of women that I was in, hated men and wanted, for the most part nothing to do with them. The other two groups of women characteristic of being "prissy", "spoiled
  13. Well, I must say I am very much appreciative of your asking these questions to lil ole me. Anyway, I believe, though I would have to get back to you on this, Method Acting consists of actually living the part and not only acting, but feeling the character as well. I'm sure you've heard of Stanislavski's work on Acting in general and I think he had a lot to do with Method Actors. I've read a decent amount of autobiographies on actors such as Judy Garland, June Allyson, Robert Walker, and Joan Crawford to get a sort of "feel" for what acting was like for them, but in al honesty, this is jus
  14. Well that puts a new spin on things.... Why and who decided that that would be a good choice for a TCM "intro"?
  15. Thanks, T. As a theatre major, it seems like such a ridiclous question to ask, but I just wanted to be sure. All I know is while reading Faye Dunaway's book and she commented on her work in Chinatown. According to the "My sister!! My daughter!!" scene, Faye had wanted Jack Nicholson to really slap her in order for her facial reactions to work. I was recently in a play called Big Love and we actors did tons and tons of fight choreography. Which, on the stage or camera, would be awesome to rehearse if choreographed, but painfully sore if it were real. And the fighting we choregraphed w
