OK folks it is really clear to me that Everybody here is much smarter than I am in things like cinamatography, and film history, and words like "noir"...I work on the much simplified basis of "like it" or "hate it". I'm one of those minion of folks who watch movies for pure entertainment...And Quietman is a hit on this level. It just makes me laugh. As a matter of fact, I think I'm gonna leave this board, and go watch the movie....Thanks for the Idea Mr. Baily and tell Zuzu hi for me. Q.R.
North by Northwest was his best film. I liked most of his films even Father Goose, which was fun. But the girls (And I mean any one under 35) at work look at me funny when they are giggling over Brad Pitt, and I say he ain't no Cary Grant...Yup Mr. Grant is my benchmark for a suave, good looking, talented actor, and the only one who ever halfway measured up was a little known fellow named Archie Leech.
