  1. George Raft made a movie with Carole Lombard where they dance a latin dance. I believe it was called Bolero. I think it's lost, becauseTCM has never showed it. But I've seen a still from it.
  2. I agree with you about Robert Taylor. The only good ones he made were Camille, Waterloo Bridge, and Ivenhoe. Not mainly due to him. You've got Garbo, Vivien Leigh, and George Sanders. Come to think of it. Has George Sanders ever been star of the month? He was always good.
  3. I'll be glad when March is over. Tuesday nights have been dull this month. I just don't have the patience to watch his films. I'll watch foreign films from Italy and France. Liked the one from Italy last Sunday night. Especially because it had some dark humor in it.
  4. I disagree with Thomas Mitchell. He always played an Irishman, but he was born in New Jersey. Just like Walter Brennan playing the same type character. How did he win three Oscars? Edited by: msbisonnet on Mar 22, 2010 7:20 PM
  5. Add William Demarest. Great in Preston Sturges films. Especially Miracle of Morgans Creek (for which he should have been nominated), and The Lady Eve.
  6. That was a good joke. How about Eric Blore. I loved him in the Astaire/Rogers films.
  7. Astor was prettier than Bebe Daniels. Daniels was no spring chicken either. Remember, Daniels was in some Harold Lloyd silents. Astor was a better actress. The fact that Astor was in her 30s is OK. The character is supposed to have a history. Edited by: msbisonnet on Mar 20, 2010 11:18 PM
  8. I messed up. This was meant as a reply to the Ruby Keeler thread.
  9. Cagney may have beern a buck dancer, but he showed he could add to it. That's why I enjoy his dacing in Yankee Doodle Dandy. I guess Ruby just did common buck dancing with no frills.
  10. You'll be disappointed with Satin Met A Lady. It doesn't follow the book at all.
  11. Buck Dancing: Didn't she know how to tap dance? Who else at the time did buck dancing? It seems that style had become out of fashion. When she auditioned for WB, I can't see how she made it, with her weak voice and bad acting. I still think Al Jolson had something to do with it.
  12. Number one, she was a lousy actress. Her dancing style was very stiff. You ever notice she always has her arms up. She didn't know what to do with them, otherwise. She wouldn't have worked later on with Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly. Did Al Jolson have anything to do her early-thirties roles? He had helped make WB a success through The Jazz Singer. I think her pairing with Dick Powell was awful. What saved him was he switched to dramatic roles in the 40's.
  13. Look for Barrymore in The 20th Century. He's great as Oscar Jaffe. However, sometimes he acted too much with his eyes. Leftover from his silent days.
  14. The only one I can think of that they had was Claude Rains. There are a lot more that were great enough to be stars of the month. For example: Eve Arden, Hatty McDaniel, Frank Morgon, Edward Arnold, and the adorable Donald Meek.
  15. I don't think Warren William is as good as William Powell. However, there is a connection. William had a pet wire fox terrier.
