  1. I have tried to locate a copy of Just Across the Street, 1952, with John Lumd---but it seems to be a lost film. Has anyone seen it?
  2. Eleanor Parker--3 nominations-no wins! Alan Ladd, George O'Brien, Alain Delon---the list goes on.............
  3. This is GREAT news. I've been wanting to see Serie Noire for quite awhile. I'm a big fan of Patrick Dewaere. Do you know what company is releasing the film? I hope that they make a dvd version available also
  4. Gee, I feel kind of awful because I really enjoyed La Pointe Courte. Maybe it's because I'm a big fan of Philippe Noiret. Maybe it's because I enjoy and appreciate the director, Agnes Varda. Maybe it's because I liked some of Varda's other films. I'm at a loss ---but the fact remains, I really liked this film!
  5. I've seen several of these films but the two stand outs are: High Noon ( one of my all time favorite westerns) and Kansas City Confidential with a great performance by John Payne.
  6. L'auberge espagnole is one of my favorite films. Romain Duris and kelly Ruilly were really excellent together. It's very engaging and funny. I also saw Le Divorce-mainly because it was a Merchant-Ivory film. It was not up to par with some of their greater films ( A Room with a View and Howard's End), but I enjoyed it. I also saw Javier Barden in the Dancer Upstairs. Not bad at all. The only other film I saw was Down with Love on an airplane flight. I had a hard time keeping awake.
  7. I also might add, speaking of Working Girl, that i was rooting for Melanie Griffith to win Best Actress for her performance. Unfortunately, she lost the Oscar to Jodie Foster. Anyhow, I thought Melanie was outstanding.
  8. I've only seen 2 of these films. I saw Big with Tom Hanks when it first came out & I remember liking it very much. The other film, Working Girl , is one of my all time favorites. I thought the 3 leads, Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver had great chemistry together. Also, the music by Carly Simon was totally fantastic.
  9. My two favorites were Paris, Texas and Bachelor Party. Bachelor Party was a riot!
  10. I saw this film a couple months ago. It took me quite awhile to obtain a copy of it. The one they had on Youtube at the time did not have an English translation. Anyhow what a great film!The setting, the score the story. The actors were terrific--Jean-Louis Trintignant, Klaus Kinski and Frank Wolff. This film really got me interested in spaghetti westerns. A whole lot of new stars--Leonard Mann Franco Nero, Robert Woods , Giuliano Gemma, George Hilton and Gianni Garko to name a few.
  11. He will be missed! I totally enjoyed some his films-especially those in the 70s like The Mechanic, Buster and Billie, Baby Blue Marine and Big Wednesday.
  12. I know that there is no accounting for taste---but Marcello Mastroianni is one of my favorite actors. I had looked forwarded to his day of films for a long time and I give the TCM staff a thumbs up for selecting him for a day in Summer Under the Stars.
  13. Two of Paul Newman's films rank high on my list--The Hustler and Slap Shot.
  14. I just checked the # of films I've seen of Cary Grant--and I have seen 73 films. I counted Without Reservations in which he had an Uncredited part. I'm an avid collector and have spent a lot of time, energy, and money tracking down his films. The great thing is that they're all out there. He has been in so many of my favorite films.
  15. Fred MacMurray in Pardon My Past. Howard Keel in Calloway Went Thataway.
  16. I'm really looking forward to the evening of June 10th when 2 Jean-Paul Belmondo's films are playing. That Man from Rio and Up to His Ears. Definately worth a look! I'm also anxious to see some of Tom Keene's westerns on Saturday mornings in June.
  17. Eric Rohmer directed and wrote two of my favorite French films- My Night at Maud's and Clair's Knee.
  18. I agree with the top 5 films you chose- plus Raintree County and The Taming of the shrew are right up there. For pure fun though-not critical acclaim, but very watchable-I'd list Elephant Walk The V.I.P.s, and The Sandpiper. Taylor was very good in all 3.
  19. Pat O' Brien was a rather fine actor-great with the wisecracks and snappy comebacks. Generally he was not an actor who could carry a film unless he starred with someone like James Cagney. Yes he did indeed make a lot of films, but for the most part many were quickly forgotten. I think, above all else, he was Irish and that comes thru loud and clear. I most recently saw him in Secret Command with Chester Morris.
  20. In the 1956 movie, Moby Dick, Richard Basehart, as Ishmael, has to share a bed with Queequeg ( a cannibal) at an Inn the night before going to sea. It's a scene right out of the great novel and it's rather amusing.
  21. Tthe high point of the Oscars ( for me anyhow) was Sam Rockwell winning Best Supporting Actor. Years ago i saw him in a film called Box of Moonlight (1996). I thought he'd be a big star, but it took him a rather long time to finally get critical recognition ( Oscar nomination).
  22. I just saw this film today on DVD from the Criterion Collection. this was the 2nd film that Louis Malle and Jeanne Moreau made together ( the 1st being Elevator to the Gallows). Back in 1958, The Lovers was apparently quite a shocking film.It was regarded as diabolical and obscene. One of the big surprises ( to me anyhow) was an actor name Jean-Marc Bory-who played one of Moreau's lovers. I had seen him in one other film with Brigitte Bardot ( Love on a Pillow). One scene had the lovers drifting slowly down a stream in the moonlight. Check it out!
  23. I totally agree- even a full day of his films for Summer Under the Stars. Most likely, however, most of his films are not readily available. I know that I have had to go to great trouble to see some of his films ( like The Fixer and Providence).
  24. I just recently saw The Singer Not the Song and found it to be rather amusing. Apparently Dirk Bogarde and the director (Roy Baker- better known for A Night to Remember) were both under contract to The Rank Organization and had to do this film in order to fulfill their contracts. They both disliked the script. So Dirk played his bandit character as if he had fallen in love with the priest ( John Mills). His costume is like totally far out. The title is explained - Dirk love the singer (john Mills as the priest, but Not the song ( religion). A vey campy film!
