  1. Maybe you're thinking of NORTHWEST PASSAGE...?
  2. I think Pierce Brosnan could do mystery comedies, like the type Powell did. I think Brosnan could also do roles that Basil Rathbone did, like Sherlock Holmes for instance. In fact, if we were to reverse the question and ask which stars from today would've made it in the past, I would put Pierce Brosnan at the top of the list. I think his style would've worked very well in the 30s and 40s.
  3. I don't think Astaire would make it today. He's not enough of a hunk. I think Gene Kelly would do fine today, because he worked in several genres and became a noted director.
  4. _Some more from '60:_ CAN-CAN NEVER ON SUNDAY THE BELLBOY PEPE FROM THE TERRACE THE UNFORGIVEN THE STORY OF RUTH TOO HOT TO HANDLE SONG WITHOUT END LA DOLCE VITA BELLS ARE RINGING FLAMING STAR THE ENTERTAINER HELLER IN PINK TIGHTS POLLYANNA HOUSE OF USHER THE LOST WORLD

  6. No, I think I'll pass. Not in the mood to share those thoughts with disrespectful posters who will attempt to trash what I write anyways. As I said, we're done with this.
  7. I was waiting for this thread. Don't let us down...remember we need one for 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010.
  8. I think I am going to exit this thread, because I cannot see any new ground being covered in it. Maybe I'll come back and post a few more times later if it takes on a new life...but I'm kind of done with it. I do know which films I have banned in my own home, and that is what counts. There are also films I have destroyed and thrown into the fire.
  9. During the *Margaret O'Brien* tribute yesterday, I noticed she appeared with several actors twice: with George Murphy in TENTH AVENUE ANGEL and BIG CITY with Butch Jenkins in OUR VINES HAVE TENDER GRAPES and BIG CITY with Danny Thomas in THE UNFINISHED DANCE and BIG CITY with Lionel Barrymore in DR. GILLESPIE'S CRIMINAL CASE and THREE WISE FOOLS with Marjorie Main in MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS and BAD BASCOMB and with June Allyson in MUSIC FOR MILLIONS and LITTLE WOMEN.
  10. Thanks for the explanation...I did not know that. However, I hardly consider Tierney's character to be on the same level as Queen Gertrude. She commits equally heinous deeds but we are missing the incest dimension.
  11. Reread that post to me. You will see that if you had deleted the last paragraph, it would've been completely fine. But you felt the need to get personal at the end and try to tell me what to do. That was unnecessary as far as I'm concerned.
  12. Unless it's just their shared Irish heritage. I love both of them. And I wish Rosie's film career hadn't tanked. I'm hoping she makes a comeback...she's an excellent character actress.
  13. I was fine with your post all the way till the final paragraph. I feel the last paragraph was unnecessary. You do not need to scold or browbeat a fellow poster that way. If you want there to be civil discussions related to the topic, then you need to stop dictating terms yourself. Now, as for the first part of your post...I am glad that you see how I am trying to get people to think. There definitely are no absolutes when it comes to freedoms in the United States. In many ways, it is not a free country. And the sooner people see that and see how it is reflected on film, the better IM
  14. You did not receive a reply from me because I don't trust you. And I do not have to acquiesce to your request if I choose not to do so. For you to infer anything else means that you are once again baiting and trying to stir up trouble. I would ask that you stop it. Somehow this thread did not get locked, and I would like to think there can still be civil, thoughtful discussion here. But there won't be if you keep throwing fuel on the fire.
  15. You did not come into this thread with your A-game. And now you have been benched.
  16. You know, you have to realize that the constitution is not always upheld. Shocking isn't it. There were plenty of times when your parents nipped your freedom of speech in the bud and overruled you. I am sure you have had things banned from your life. We all have. But if you want to keep making a federal case about it, go ahead. Getting all legalistic about it is not going to change the fact that the so-called rights of some groups are superseded by the control of a more dominant group.
  17. No Jonas. I have already indicated that I would not fall into that trap and I won't. You can keep arguing with me about it, but the answer is no. I won't do that.
  18. I don't need respect for defending a viewpoint solo. And even when others agree, I don't need their help or support in a thread. I am not here to form a posse. But I do need respect as someone who says the sky is purple, even if everyone else says it's blue...because we should all be allowed to express our own interpretations of something. If that scares someone else or threatens their way of thinking, then deal. What distresses me the most in this thread is the lack of tolerance. And then we have those who act like clowns and just mock or laugh at others. That is adding disresp
  19. I think you do need to read an entire thread or else run the risk of sounding like an ignoramus. You have made several mistakes and have had to apologize. If you had been clear about what was posted in the thread and by whom, it is likely you could've avoided those errors.
  20. He did. I haven't seen it yet. I recorded it off TCM during Greg Peck's month and it's one of those I haven't gotten around to viewing. But have you seen DAY OF THE OUTLAW? That is one of my favorite westerns from the late 50s. Great cast: Robert Ryan, Tina Louise and David Nelson with Burl. It's filmed on location...no interiors doubling as exteriors. And the script is sharp: there's a scene where the men aim to rape the women but don't quite get away with it...and the sequence with the multiple murders in it is just fantastic to watch.
  21. Rosie O'Donnell and John Goodman doing TUGBOAT ANNIE would be a smash hit. And actually, Rosie O'Donnell could remake some of Patsy Kelly's movies...Rosie reminds me a lot of Patsy Kelly.
  22. Sounds like a good idea for a business with a considerable market desiring those films, but a poorly executed job.
  23. I think Burl Ives is a great example. In some films, he is given no musical scenes and is a solid dramatic actor. I think he's amazing in CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, and even better as a ruthless killer in DAY OF THE OUTLAW. Then, we have him return to form in Disney's SUMMER MAGIC singing about the 'Ugly Bug Ball.' He really should have a day for SUTS.
  24. Another problem is the way people read one or two posts, think they have a handle on the discussion (when they don't) and then proceed to chime in. The whole thread needs to be looked at first, then one can see what's been covered and how the conversation has evolved.
  25. This tells me that you have not kept abreast of all the posts and how both sides have been debated in this thread. You also do not know why banning, burning and censoring was even considered an option for some kinds of films.
