  1. @1:21 - I agree with your assessment 2000. I can't think of anyone but Brent who the cartoon character reminds me more of. Slightly ungrammatical, but I think you get my drift.

  3. Dargo, I yield to your piscatory knowledge of the differences between trout and bass fishing. My recollection was (and it may not be accurate) that the Fred Clark character was carrying a creel and had a hat with flies stuck in it of the type used for trout. As the great Hitchcock said, however, "it's only a movie," so this scene likely could have been filed anywhere in CA, including Chatsworth (which, of course, is known today for another type of film being shot there -- ha ha 😁). The only reason I placed Cody's lair in the Sierra was because that appeared to be the scene of the train he
  4. I must have been misinformed by the dialogue in White Heat, where "The Trader" (Fred Clark), dressed as a fly fisherman, wanders into Cody's (Cagney's) lair in the Sierra mountains and says to Edmund O'Brien that he's there to catch "bass." O'Brien tells Cody that he thinks the man is an impostor because "this is trout country. There ain't no bass within a 100 miles of here !" From the name of the lake, guess that can't be the case !
  5. Yes, in fact most interiors would have been filmed at the studio in Hollywood. This is generally true of all films.
  6. I was gonna say - while there, beware of fly fishing hooks !!!! πŸ˜„
  7. I used to be a park ranger at the national park - Rocky Mountain National Park - in Estes, and was in the area when they filmed the movie. However, the hotel in the film was actually the Timberline Lodge, near Mount Hood in Oregon. The opening scenes of the film (title credits) -- where the car is winding up the mountain road -- are actually Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier National Park, Montana, not Colorado. But I think King used the Stanley as his template for the book. I wouldn't "worry" either ! πŸ˜„
  8. Thanks for the insightful comment. Ben Johnson apparently worked as a wrangler for the Chapman-Bernard ranch which, along with the Drummond and Mullendore, was among the biggest ranches in Osage County. He was assigned by the ranch to take horses to Hollywood where he was spotted by movie mogul Howard Hughes who was filming The Outlaw (1943) with Jane Russell, and the rest, as they say, is history. According to the book written by Grann, the official (FBI)version of the killings - known colloquially as the "Osage Reign of Terror" -- lasted from approximately 1920-1925, or about 5 years.
  9. Just got back from a 10 day jaunt that involved some movie connections - Happened to be on set in Pawhuska, Oklahoma for the filming of Killers of the Flower Moon, which will star Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, and is directed by Martin Scorsese (winner of the Robert Osborne Award). Didn't see any of the major stars while there, but did manage to catch filming of some of the B-roll of street scenes in the town: folks dressed in costume, Model T Ford automobiles, etc. The film is based on a book of the same title by David Grann, which covers a series of murders on the Osage Indian
  10. Always enjoyed Ned in the roles he played: "Deliverance," "Hopscotch," and who can forget his famous rant in "Network" - ?
  11. Yes, I remember Blakely from the mid-70s. She was pretty hot and there was a girl I knew in college who resembled her. Blakely also preferred some risque parts - as I remember she was in the tv drama mini-series Rich Man, Poor Man with Nick Nolte.

Basic Instinct defined the erotic thriller – and killed it https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/20210603-basic-instinct-defined-the-erotic-thriller-and-killed-it (Image credit: Alamy) By Nicholas Barber3rd June 2021 With a new restoration being released, Paul Verhoeven's film has kept the world talking for three decades. Its trick was to push a genre to its absurd limits, writes Nicholas Barber. A
  13. MacLeod seemed to have a thing for portraying sailors, even early on - In 1959 he starred along with Cary Grant and Tony Curtis in Operation Petticoat -
  14. Will always remember him in one of his early roles as Crosley, who manned the machine gun in Sand Pebbles, along with Steve McQueen. Quite a different - and heavier - role than what he played in future comedies like The Love Boat.
