  1. > I'm ashamed to say that there's something cathartic > about Mildred Pierce's slap across her evil daughter > Vida's face. Absolutely the double slap in Mildred Pierce from Joan to Ann and also vice versa when Ann slaps Joan on the stairs and the latter loses her balance and almost falls.
  2. Eartha Kitt had the muscular body many women dream of today.
  3. Ok, but what about all the young actors and actresses that really CAN act and would shine in some of the old roles like Natalie Portman, Emmy Rossum, Keira Knightley, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johannsen, Orlando Bloom, Joaquin Phoenix to name a few?
  4. My dad gave me a bio of Marilyn Monroe and I could have cared less. With nothing else to read one summer, I plucked it off the shelf and read it. I became obsessed with the blonde bombshell and rented all her movies. In my obsession with MM, I became obsessed with that era and began renting '50s films. Then I discovered TCM and watched only '50s films that aired but I kept hearing about this miraculous actress named Greta Garbo. One summer, they dedicated one night of the week to the Divine One and I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I began with her silents and when I heard he
  5. Jack Lemmon in Some Like it Hot! That's a bit obvious though.
  6. I said it in a post three years 4 years ago and I'll say it again: James Cagney -- sexiest dancer (See Shanghai Lil number).
  7. Mol, can you describe the photo? I might be able to help you out if I know what you're looking for. I work at a print and frame gallery and have access to wholesalers of movie posters and photos. Let me know.
  8. Hey guys, thanks for the welcome back. Quit my job (where I used to sit around and do nothing but chat on these boards--needless to say it was a mundane existence apart from the fun I used to have with you guys). Went back to school for a second degree and now I have a job that I love but it doesn't leave me much time for posting messages. Anyway, it's good to be back. I really miss the whole classic movie scene. I haven't had much time for watching or reading about the movies I love, but I'm starting to get back into it. As for Norma, LOVE her in The Divorcee. She plays such a wide arr
  9. Hi everyone. I'm new here ... well not really. I was a big time poster a couple of years back under the name lolmsted. I recognize some of the names like coffeedan and mongo. Anyway, it's good to be back. Kelsie, that line is from Free Soul with Clark Gable. Norma was nominated for an Oscar for that role. I love that line too. I don't think she is underrated, just somewhat forgotten by the masses.
  10. The movie was great...it was interesting observe the differences between American and French cultures and attitudes towards eachother. Mr. Merchant was an extremely charming man. He truly appreciates filmmaking and is very proud of his work--as well he should be. He's funny, intelligent, and very sincere. The evening was quite enjoyable. P.S. I did not ask about the Bollywood festival !
  11. Speaking of France, tonight I'm off to see the new film Le Divorce. Not quite sure what to expect, but the real treat is that Ishmail Merchant will be here for a question and answer period after the film. Seeing as how he has produced some of my favorite films, I'm too excited for words. Maybe I should ask what was up with his commentary during the Bollywood Festival?!
  12. venerados, I, too could go on forever on my fave French films, but I'll keep it to a minimum. Being a Truffaut fan, I have to list: 1. Jules et Jim (1962) 2. Vivement Dimanche (1983--I believe his last film and a great tribute to Hitchcock) 3. 400 Blows (1959) some others are: Umbrellas of Cherbourgh (1964), Going Places (1974) and countless other current films from France!
  13. Yep, feaito, you're right. Sometimes my fingers can't type as fast as my thoughts come.
  14. 1. Greta Garbo 2. Ava Gardner 3. Vivien Leigh 4. Monica Bellucci (current Italian actress) 5. Dolores del Rio Needless to say, I like dark beauties.
  15. nedlato, I completely agree that Fiennes' and Thomas' characters were pretty loathsome. I always viewed The English Patient as two separate movies--one with the the despicable Fiennes and Thomas characters and one with the beautiful, angelic Juliette Binoche and a reformed Ralph Fiennes. Needless to say, the latter is a better "movie".
