  1. Many years ago, I was watching a film on TV with my dad. I was probably about eight years old and I don't remember the title but I do remember a bit about the story. There was a woman (a teacher i think) who took care of a lot of little children. At one point early in the film, one of the little boys was terribly frightened of a thunder storm and she consoled him. THen, years later, she went to her doctor and recognized him as being that little boy. and she said to him, 'are you Johnny' (I think his name was John) 'the little boy who was afraid of lightning?'. Then, he somehow got al
  2. Actually, the best version of this tale is the broadway show-version entitled SHE LOVES ME. The score is all original written by the men that wrote fiddler on the roof (although, she loves me is a bit better). I have heard that a film version was planned with Julie Andrews in the lead role (who was supposed to be in the male lead? any one know?) back in the 1960s. Unfortunately, Julie had a couple of films that didn't fare well by the late 1960s. Hollywood, being stupid as usual, forgot about the fact she won an oscar for Mary Poppins and then broke all records with Sound of Music, and the
  3. I saw this film for the first time about 28 years ago at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. They were having a six month festival of comedies on film screening every pertinent film comedy from the silent days right up through (then) present day films. I had seen a few of Garbo's films at that point (i was a teenager) but couldn't see her doing a comedic role. Boy, was I surprised! The film is sheer delight, co-written by genius Billy Wilder and directed by Ernst Lubitsch. I went home telling everyone the joke that Melvyn Douglas told her in an effort to get her to laugh.... here it is:
  4. when I see the phrase 'Romantic Comedy', there is one film that readily comes to mind-- 'THE STRAWBERRY BLONDE' with James Cagney, Olivia deHavilland, Rita Hayworth, ALan Hale and Jack Carson. It's always been one of my all-time favorites.... it's funny, poignant, serious, has a great ending. the script is terrific and it was written by the Epstein brothers (they also wrote CASABLANCA). Lots of great lines and great scenes.... I think my favorite is the scene when the foursome attempt to eat spaghetti. So, anyone else like this movie? Message was edited by: mooveeluvr
  5. Actually, I believe the official title of this episode is 'Lucy Cries Wolf'. In this episode, Lucy wants s to see if Ricky would come home in an emergency because she read in the paper where a husband didn't do that and the wife was harmed. Ricky says he would rush home but Lucy decides to test him. He sends Ethel and Fred over and she decides to hide so it looks like she all-of-a-sudden isn't there. She winds up hiding on the window ledge; Ricky comes home and starts to worry with Fred and Ethel when the phone rings. A neighbor asks if all is OK because Lucy is on the window ledge. THen,
  6. I think, for me, it would definitely be FOR ME AND MY GAL (1942). Lots of reasons. Firstly, I absolutely love Judy-- she was really something else. This film is different from most musicals of the period because the story line is good (don't get bored during the non-musical scenes), movie audiences met Gene Kelly for the first time (although, his role here is very similar to his PAL JOEY role on Broadway). But the one who steals the show is none other than Judy. Her acting ability was wonderful here and if that isn't enough, we have one show-stopping song after another-- Oh, You Beautiful
  7. TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE has always been my favorite (although, its hard to really pick just one) Bogart film. As wonderful as it is in every aspect, I believe it would not work as well if it weren't for Bogart and his brilliant portrayal of Fred C. Dobbs. I knew he didn't get an oscar for this performance (Laurence Olivier won that year I believe), but I was shocked a couple of years back to learn he wasn't even nominated for this film, nor did he win any of the other prestigious awards (golden globe, etc). I also see that he was given, in 1949, the 'Sour Apple' award for the 'Least C
