  2. Because "The Searchers" gets shown *a lot.* It's nice when they highlight someone that the more obscure films are shown. And, by the way, posting in all caps is considered shouting.
  3. Mitchell Leisen is sometimes Lubitsch, and sometimes Preston Sturges. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0500552/

Doris Day thought so too. ;-)
  5. This was actually done, as a comedy series, FRACTURED FLICKERS, by Jay Ward (Rocky and Bullwinkle) and hosted by Hans Conreid in the early 60s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractured_Flickers As a kid, I LOVED this show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxxNu49NjCY
  6. > {quote:title=cujas wrote:}{quote} > *The Opposite Sex* is not a musical, just because the cowboy sings a couple of songs in a night club, that's just part of the plot. In order for it to be a musical, the stars--Allyson, Blondell, Collins etc. would have to sing and dance too. Well, there are two musical numbers Collins appears in and Allyson has a few songs? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049578/soundtrack
  7. But it pales in comparison with the same film given the MST3K treatment.

They should mind their own business and stay off my television. I dont go into their homes and do offensive or creep things. I'm just guessing, but I would bet there is an "off" switch on your TV. Perhaps you should use it when Cher makes an appearance. The ageism and anti-woman hostility on this thread is breathtaking.
  9. Tina in NOW, VOYAGER? http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title.jsp?stid=1922 Edited by: MaisieR on Nov 23, 2010 9:03 PM
  10. > {quote:title=Edgecliff wrote:}{quote} > New titles: > > 40 Carats (1973) > Eleanor, First Lady of the World (1982) > Everything's Ducky (1961) > Idol on Parade (1959) > Ladies in Retirement (1941) > Mark of the Gorilla (1950) > No Sex Please, We're British (1973) > Screaming Mimi (1958) > The Wrong Box (1966) > The Deadly Affair (1966) Couple of my favorites on that list. THE WRONG BOX is a marvelous comedy awash in mid-1960's style Victoriana, with a great cast ? Michael Caine, John Mills, Ralph Richardson, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Peter Sellers as a drunken doctor in a room full of cats has only two scenes, but hysterically funny ones. The whole film, though, is stolen by Wilfred Lawson as the oldest, dottiest butler ever. IDOL ON PARADE marks the first time Anthony Newley sang in a film, playing a pop singer drafted into the army. (His character, Jeep Jackson, specializes in rock-a-billy, which was especially popular in England at that time. Even the Beatles credit Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent as their influences.) Jackson's Irish drill sergent is played by William Bendix and his long-suffering CO is the wonderful Lionel Jeffries. The film's four songs were released on an EP and, much to the surprise of the producers, the ballad, "I've Waited So Long" went to #1 on the UK pop charts and overnight, Newley became a recording artist.
  11. > {quote:title=InFlynn wrote:}{quote} > I just watched a recording of "The Sundowners" that recently aired on TCM and think Robert Mitchum's Aussie accent was very good. Mitchum was very good with dialects ? his appearances in RYAN'S DAUGHTER, THE LIST OF ADRIAN MESSENGER and his flawless Boston accent in THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE are testament to that.
  12. You included Samantha Eggar in your list, but left out her co-star in DOCTOR DOLITTLE, Anthony Newley. He co-starred in season 4's, "It Runs In the Family," an episode that feels very much like the pilot for a spin-off. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0653532/ Edited by: MaisieR on Sep 10, 2010 12:36 PM
  13. There's been a long time very persistent rumor that Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie had sex on screen for Nick Roeg's DON'T LOOK NOW.
  14. > {quote:title=hawaiiansurf wrote:}{quote} > Yes the voice can really make an actor attractive. I agree with you about Robert Mitchum, his voice just is totally sexy. He sang the song "River of No Return" in the movie. > > I also have loved Ronald Coleman's voice forever! I can still hear him as Sidney Carton in "A Tale of Two Cities!" A little correction. The voice you hear singing the title song in RIVER OF NO RETURN is Tennessee Ernie Ford. Mitchum certainly did sing, and even released several albums, but that's not him singing in RIVER.
  15. And for a nice extra, THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME has a wonderful against-type performance by Robert Young.
