  1. Maybe that's what I was thinking of...that cover. Also, ice cream just seems like something Prince would have sung about. Maybe not an entire song dedicated to it, but mentioned somewhere in the lyrics. Here's that cover. The ice cream cone eater is a bit hard to find, she's * leaning over that grey stone structure (whatever it is.) At least, it looks like she's gpt an ice cream cone. Hard to tell for sure, but seems to be, and it would fit right in with the artwork of that cover. * Edit: maybe I should say "he"...hard to tell, and doesn't really matter, given that
  2. Sepia, I'm so glad to realize there are other people who call a carbonated drink "pop" ! I've always called it pop; I figured "soda" was the American term, I always hear it called "soda" in American movies and tv shows. But then, Detroit is fairly close to where I live (SW Ontario), so I'm thinking it's more a regional thing than a national one. And yes, exactly, a "soda" is what you describe, ice cream with POP poured over it. Recently I've noticed Canadians use the American terms more and more, words and phrases that I remember as being specifically "Canadian" when I w
  3. LsDoorMat, thanks for such a considered response to my post. I just want to address some of your observations about Born to Kill. Your wondering "how did that get past the code" around some of those issues that come up in the film can partly be answered by the fact that film makers, (whether director or writer ) were fully aware of the code, and became adept at finding ways to get around it. They did this mostly by implying activities that were banned by the censors, rather than directly showing them. Promiscuity? who knows for sure? They could always argue that the couple are
  4. Vautrin, you know your music. Do you know if Prince did a song that mentioned ice cream? For some reason I think he did, even though a brief search did not find any such thing.
  5. Ah, yes, ice cream floats. I'm a purist, I would just go with root beer and vanilla ice cream. I'm sorry, SweetSue, everyone has the right to their own ice cream preferences, but I do not like cookie ice cream-- that is, ice cream with bits of cookie in it, or, even worse, cookie dough ! But I know those options are very popular with many people. Floats are pretty easy to make at home, which is nice. They're so old-fashioned, I suspect they're not always available at some of the newer, bigger, more corporate type ice cream outlets. Probably you could get one at an old-school "ice c
  6. I imagine Bette spent a lot more time smoking cigarettes than eating ice cream. ( for one thing, ice cream is messier and more awkward to use as a "bit of business".) Ice cream update: the other day my husband and I went on a drive to a beach area and got ice cream cones at one of those beach food stands ( I love them, they always make me feel like I'm in an Archie comic.) I ordered pistachio, a flavour I hadn't had in years. This was because I was reminded of it by a post here by lavenderblue, who mentioned that pistachio was one of her favourite flavours. My husband or
  7. It's maybe getting a bit late to still be discussing Possessed, but I did want to make 3 more comments about it. I'll try and be brief ( I know, I know....) 1) To be honest, I'm a bit miffed that no one here responded at all to my observation about one reason why Joan's character would be so obsessed with Van's. It's made as clear as was possible for a mainstream 1947 film that Louise (Joan) and David had been "intimate"; to put it bluntly, had had sex. Possibly over the entire summer. this would be a big deal for a "respectable" woman like Louise. She was a nurse (ie, relat
  8. Well, I'm assuming you are familiar with that expression (maybe not, one would have to be a certain age to remember this) : "Real men don't eat quiche." a term from the '70s, I believe.
  9. But then again, she said she likes Lawrence Tierney (albeit she also finds him scary), and he's a bit of a lantern jaw. At least, I always thought so. Oh, maybe not. It's just that he always looks to me as though his face is carved out of rock.
  10. John Hamm is certainly a handsome man. As for that other, er, attribute, I haven't heard. ( but I believe you if you've heard that rumour.) However, it is definitely implied about John Hamm's character Don Draper in "Mad Men".
  11. I take it you're speaking for George. Well, Hibs, we all know that regardless of how handsome (or not) George Brent may have been, the effect is entirely spoiled by his rear end.
  12. Apparently George S .Kaufman belonged to that club too. (I'm surprised that part of your post got past the OTTOCensor.)
  13. Wha....? !"Burt's not your cup of tea " ? ! ! Burt Lancaster has to be the single most handsome ( and attractive ) male actor in all of Hollywood moviedom. He's got it all; those wonderful bedroom eyes, perfect classic features yet not boring-looking, and charisma, screen presence, whatever you want to call it. All that, plus a great voice, very sexy. Oh, and a fine actor, too. Burt Lancaster is the Platonic ideal of male beauty.
  14. The Hard Way . Dennis Morgan is adorable. What a cutie.
