  1. casablancalover, thought you might enjoy this. There are no visuals, but just enjoy the music. This singer is undeservedly obscure. I think he's great. http://mobistar.fr.netlog.com/go/explore/videos/videoid=fr-4022370 It's on a weird French site, so you might have to wait a few seconds before the song starts.It's worth it, though.

  2. Hopkins is usually over-the-top these days, but it wasn't always so. Back in the 70s, he played an important part in a British television series production of War and Peace. He played Count Bezuhov (spelling's probably wrong) and he was very quiet and kind of gentle and understated. Nobody has as yet mentioned any female stars. I think the lovely Loretta Young's performance in Rachel and the Stranger is fairly understated. She's got William Holden and Robert Mitchum around her, and she just quietly takes it all in stride.
  3. Ooooh, *Psycho* ! Got to be one of the best, any genre, ever. So many memorable scenes; what about Anthony Perkins, at the very end, sitting in his jail cell with a blanket wrapped around his shoulders, smiling to him / her self that he wouldn't even "hurt a fly". I like Gus van Sant, but why did he ever bother remaking this? Some things are perfect as they are.
  4. The Blue Gardenia (but they're both good) How Green was My Valley or Green for DAnger ?
  5. People often like to discuss the beauty of classic movie actresses on these messageboards. While you could easily make a case that they are all beautiful, surely Ingrid Begman is one of the loveliest.
  6. Robert Taylor was in Johnny Eager with Van Heflin
  7. You said it, Valentine. (you're good at summing up an idea in a few words -like when you said melodrama was syrupy, noir was visceral.)
  8. Did you see that post (aargh -I can't remember offhand which thread it was -General Discussion, maybe??) where they announce a film noir celebration with Dashiell Hammett's heirs in attendance. "15 Noir Oscars" I believe it was called. Come to think of it, I bet you already announced it. In fact, come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if you had something to do with organizing it or something.It sounds right up your street. It would be fun to attend.
  9. Ann Sheridan was in They Drive by Night directed by Raoul Walsh
  10. Gene Tierney, hands down Paul Muni or Paul Henreid ?
  11. casablancalover, I just want you to know that I read your blog on The Fountainhead and I think I can say that we both agree - despite its good actors and high production values, it's rubbish.
  12. Wow! That's some line-up. What a treat for noir lovers. I've seen them all except for Body and Soul and A Double Life. That program includes some of my very favourite movies (including all genres, not just film noir) of all time. I wish I could be there!
  13. Robert Altman (tough decision...I really like Robert Aldrich, too) Barbara Stanwyck or Barbara Bel Geddes ?
  14. Ingrid Bergman, Ingrid Bergman. Who doesn't love this lady? My three favourites: Notorious, Casablanca, Gaslight, Spellbound (well, maybe four favourites). Hope people enjoy this. Quircky little song about *Ingrid Bergman* : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfIPdRNV7cg
  15. I wonder if they were all eating too many sardines. I do vaguely remember either our man Ben Mankiewicz or Mr. Osborne himself mentioning the torrid affair between Cooper and Neal during the shooting of The Fountainhead . It does kind of show on the screen, bestowing the film with the only compelling scenes in it. It's not so much what Cooper and Neal do, it's more about the steam floating off the screen in their scenes together. Coop, how could you? Mr. Integrity. I suppose everybody knows that Patricia Neal was married (although after the Cooper affair) to children's writer Roa
  16. Lost Horizon (sorry about before, I was literally not on the same page)
  17. Beyonce would be good. She's about the right age, she's gorgeous, and she can sing. Has anyone seen her in that movie about Chess Records that came out a couple of years or so ago? Adrien Brody was in it too. If you're a fan of that kind of music and that period in American cultural history (and I am), it was pretty interesting. ...Beyonce played Etta James. So she could probably hold her own as Lena Horne. Edited by: misswonderly on May 10, 2010 10:49 PM
  18. I don't know if you're still there, movieman1957 and metryroad, but if so, you may enjoy this. Brahms Alto Rhapsody, heavenly music. A favourite of my father's, who died three years ago. I picked a very old version; the singer is Kathleen Ferrier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHx6GHK7zEU
  19. any sun records fans out there? Dig *this* : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9qRbhh_ZWQ&feature=related
  20. Ha! How the Grinch Stole Christmas. John Ford or John Houston?
