  1. I too had not heard that Chaplain was on record as saying he would not have made the film if he'd known about the camps. I noticed references to the camps in the film when I first saw it in its entirely on TCM over a decade ago and wondered how the US and its allies could claim as late as 1944 that they were NOT aware. Also noticed references to such camps in Lubitsch's To Be Or Not To Be, which came out in 1942, shortly after Carol Lombard's untimely death in a plane crash, and almost three years before the war ended. Again, I asked myself why all the denials by the US and allies about the

  7. I had the pleasure of seeing Hal at the Virginia Film Festival back in, I think, 2015. There was a documentary -- American Odyssey: 60 Years of Mark Twain Tonight -- being shown about him after his performance the previous evening in Mark Twin Tonight. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-laff-hal-holbrook-american-odyssey-20140614-story.html One of the scenes in the documentary showed him doing stretching and calisthenics so he could stay in shape for the Mark Twain role.

  13. I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn at the Mid Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Maryland a few years back. She was charming. One thing I remember is our discussion about her co-star, Alan Hale, Jr. , and the fact that he had appeared in a few film noirs - usually as the heavy, of course., She thought I was confusing Alan Jr with his father, Alan Sr., who of course is a regular on the movies shown on TCM.
