  1. That sounds like *In the Good Old Summertime* from 1949 (which is based on *The Shop Around the Corner* (1940) but with a different setting and timeframe).
  2. These first two clues, Eve, remind me of a movie I haven't seen in a long time -- *The Greener Hills* (1939). That wouldn't be your movie, would it?
  3. The legendary *John Ford* directed *The Searchers* (1956), the screenplay for which was adapted from the novel by *Alan Le May*
  4. *Robinson*, Elaine -- Katharine Ross in The Graduate (1967)
  5. how about this one... "You handle Handel like nobody handles Handel. And your Delius - delirious! "
  6. a line by 'Gerry' Jeffers (Claudette Colbert) in Preston Sturges' *The Palm Beach Story* (1942)
  7. *Denholm Elliott* was an Oscar-nominee (Best Actor in a Supporting Role) at the 59th Annual Academy Awards (1987), which was the final Oscar appearance of *Bette Davis*

  9. Missouri-born *Virginia Mayo* was a member of the St. Louis Municipal Opera when an MGM talent scout discovered her. Samuel Goldwyn signed her to a contract, but David O. Selznick thought her screen test showed little potential. Nevertheless, Goldwyn gave her a small part in 1943's *Jack London*, also with actress *Louise Beavers*.
  10. Yes, Lew Ayres is so good in *Holiday*, as is E.E. Horton -- a funny, delightful film with an underlying 'moral' to the story... good work -- your thread, ladyeve
  11. Are these pics from *Strategic Air Command* ?
  12. Here's a new one from an old movie I had never seen until I happened onto it quite by accident a few years ago. It's now one of my favorites... "Well, well, let's ring bells! Let's send up skyrockets! . . . Well, let's turn on all the lights in the house."
  13. hmmm...could it be *The Lady Eve* ? spoken by Jean Harrington (Miss Barbara Stanwyck)
  14. Okay, that's from *What's New Pussycat* (1965) ! How about this one? _Tag #3_: "It's what goes on when the lights go off!" (1959)
  15. That's right, cmv! The "gal" was the character Katrin Holstrum, played by the lovely Loretta Young. your turn for Tag #2...
  16. I made at least two to three films each year - a total of 30 over the course of twelve years. I also appeared in several leading television programs and was nominated for an Emmy.in a part written by Paddy Chayefsky. You are right, I was nominated for six Oscars, none of which I won. I was tied with Deborah Kerr for this dubious honor, she with Best Actress nominations, and I for Best Supporting Actress. Shortly after a performance on Jerry Lewis? television program, just 9 days before Valentine?s Day (my birthday) 1969, I suffered a fatal heart attack. I was just 66 years old. *I am Th
  17. I started my career doing high school plays and summer stock, and then trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. However, I interrupted my career to raise my children, and then I began doing radio. It was not until I was 42 that I took my first film role -- an uncredited bit part. I did make an impression, but my second role also was uncredited. However, the next year I earned an Oscar nomination.
  18. That was a good selection, Eve. Gena Rowlands is one of my favorite actresses -- I think she gets better with age (wonderful in The Notebook opposite James Garner and in Hope Floats as Sandra Bullock's mother). okay, let's see who 'visits' us next...
  19. here's a hint... This movie had a second tagline. Tag #1 (alternate): *A Gal with Cultivating Ways* (1947)
