  1. I still have to watch Pandora. Heck, I still have to watch both Pandoras. Sigh. I take it the other Pandora would be *Pandora's Box*. It's a really great silent! I'll be you'll enjoy it even more than *Pandora and the Flying Dutchman* (although Ava is also very good in that one).
  2. > {quote:title=NatchuraLee wrote:}{quote} > Thanks for that great list. I know from Arthur Lyons' _Death on the Cheap_ that "Mysterious Intruder" (1946), "My Gun is Quick" (1957), "The Glass Alibi" ((1946), "The Hunted" (1948) and "I Wouldn't Be in Your Shoes" (1948) are all legitimate 'B's and should be added to the list. Looks like you could come up with a fairly good list of B noirs yourself, NatchuraLee!
  3. > {quote:title=randyishere wrote:}{quote} > I am so with you about Eleanor. She is gorgeous and has a great speaking voice! I really liked her in Naked Jungle, Interrupted Melody, Woman In White, and Of Human Bondage -1946. EP is still alive... I hope she is in good health. Would love to see her again before she moves on to cinema heaven. I believe she lives in Palm Springs, California. I'm with you too in regards to the beautiful Eleanor. It's too bad she's never done a Private Screenings for TCM.
  4. It is said that Jayne Mansfield spoke 5 languages and played the violin. What a talented woman! B-)
  5. Jayne Mansfield & Mickey Hartigay
  6. Thanks, but that photo doesn't seem to be working. Let's try another one:
  7. Thanks for the screencaps/photos and the reminder, I've been meaning to watch this one for the longest time.
  8. That John Ford westerns one sounds too good to pass, thanks for the reminder! B-)

I wonder if George Stevens might actually have intended to pay homage to Ford with that scene.
  12. > {quote:title=JoeBond wrote:}{quote} > Unfortunately, I missed out on the opportunity to see it in the theater but I wish I did because it would probably be a memorable experience. If you live near a theater that does revivals, you may still have a chance at some point, it's probably one of the most popular repertory titles they can book.
  13. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > Does anyone know the words to the opening theme? They really struck me this time. "To the end of the end of the fight we'll go...." > I believe you're referring to "The Bonnie Blue Flag", here are the lyrics: We are a band of brothers and native to the soil, Fighting for the property we gained by honest toil; And when our rights were threatened, the cry rose near and far, "Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!" Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a singl
  14. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > I love what everyone is saying here. Ethan has not finished his quest yet. He still has issues to work out for himself. I agree totally that his exile is self-imposed. He's seen too much and could never reconcile it with a relatively calm and happy life on the farm. He is a relic of an older time and way of life, and he simply does not fit any more. Beautifully said, I couldn't agree more. I may want to watch this again on AMC tonight B-)
  15. I believe that the Criterion Edition DVD of the Douglas Sirk version also includes the 30's version as an added bonus.
  16. > {quote:title=cinemafan wrote:}{quote} > I don't think anyone's mentioned "Damn Yankees". Not a lot of play on the field, but lots of locker room action. I think it's a very good musical. Gwen Vernon was just great in that. B-)
  17. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > They were very sweet pics. I wish I had a pair.... of pants like that. Come to think of it... so do I. But she really did have a very cute pair of rascals. I'm talking about her eyes, of course.
  18. > {quote:title=Fedya wrote:}{quote} > Jimmy Cagney's hair looks some shade of gray in most of those 30s gangster movies.. ;-) Did it really? Could it just have been the lighting?
  19. I actually bought the Sergio Leone boxset a while back, not long after it first came out. But I suppose it's just a matter of time till I upgrade to BD, it just depends on how long it takes them to re-release all of those westerns.
  20. Although I am more of a Ford fan, I like both of these westerns a lot.
  21. I would love to add THE BIG PARADE to my collection, I hope Warner's gets its act together and releases a DVD sometime this year. It's been so long!!
  22. I'd have to say, Gene Kelly and June Allyson. They always seemed to bright up the screen with their charm and cheerful smiles.
  23. Hello everyone, Would I be cheating a bit by saying THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY is my favorite war movie, although it also happens to be a western? Actually, I am saying it half-jokingly. The civil war element of the movie is never really given a lot of emphasis, in my opinion. Some of the best war movies that I've seen include ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, OH! WHAT A LOVELY WAR, PATTON, and Samuel Fuller's THE BIG RED ONE. But it'd be mighty hard to pick a single one of those.
