  1. How sad. I apologize to everyone for ever having started this post. It came from the heart, but , apparently it is, still, not a world (even on old movie lovers website) for this type of thread. Goodbye.
  2. i like the whole "should we be talking about this?" LOL really?????? this is 2011 right? OMG, yeah this is 2011 ..and Newt might be our next president>>>> ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....wake me in 2016
  3. just wondering if there are any other gay guys on board? we all KNOW about the the guys who c...ream over Maureen and, Lana and ...Hedy...and ...etc.....I'm a middle aged gay guy who remembers dreaming,,,"ah,,,dreaming...that's a polite word"....over guys like Tyrone Power and Montgomery Clift.....and Paul Newman.....ahhhhhhhhhhhh....sorry
  4. no, i haven't..... I remember reading somewhere that when Faulkner was asked about it, he said he couldn't figure out the script.LOL...love it
  5. the funniest, horniest, engaging movie of the 40s... yes ? no?
  6. I say the more skin the better. lol. seriously, what are we all.. 12?
  7. was watching "Ziegfeld Girl" the other night and the guys kept calling Lana Turner "red"...did she have red hair at that point? If so, then, she is my vote.
  8. I never really knew much about Lana Turner or followed her career much, but , lately I've watched a few of her old movies and I gotta say I really am impressed. It's clear why she was such a star and sex symbol. She was sizzling hot. Something else that I noticed is how YOUNG she looks. Only in her early, mid- 20's during most of the 1940's, she did have a pretty amazing success at a very early age. Now that my curiosity is piqued, I look forward to discovering more Lana.
  9. the first time I noticed this was about 20 years ago in the movie "The Grifters" . The Anjelica Huston character always said Los Angle-ees. So the idea of being common in the film noir genre in particular may be accurate.
  10. yep. watch them every year since I was a kid. I remember about 10 years ago or so the Academy put out a video containing Oscar's great moment or something like that. They said there would be more coming, but to the best of my knowledger no more ever came. It was a very cool, interesting video. And, yes, for the millionth time, I DO think Cher deserved her Oscar.
  11. Thanks for these great posts, TopBilled. I discovered the book "Agee on Film" years ago when I was a college student. It parallelled my discovering the criticism of Kael. Together, they helped forge my love of movies, both old and new. And, as a side note, James Agee authored one of my favorite books of all time, "A Death In The Family". This guy could write. There are passages in that book that , I swear, transform the English language.
  12. yes. I've been on FB for about 3 years and it's an easy, convenient way to keep in touch with friends and family, many of whom live half way across the country. But it is funny that so often the same people are always on and are always the ones making commnets....Hmmmm.....sounds like another site I go to a lot..LOL
  13. "It's A Wonderful Life" because I think James Stewart is amazing in it "White Christmas" because I never get tired of Rosemary Clooney in technicolor "The Gift of the Magi" segment of "O Henry's Full House" just because
  14. "It is not that the morals of persons connected with the moving pictures are necessarily lower than those of persons associated with music, painting or the theater; it is that, by the nature of the persons connected with moving pictures, the morals, whatever their feebleness, are inevitably and disgustingly vulgar. The rank and file of the movies come from the gutters - and it is impossible for the gutter to suffer a lapse in morals and be synchronously charming about it..." Horrible, ugly, immoral and designed to negatively affect our pure and wholesome society. Damn Hollywood!!
  15. LOL....re: trash channels like MSNBC......again..LOL......some people can NOT resist injecting politics into ANY and EVERY thread. I will resist all attempts to make a Fox "news" joke.
  16. Cary Grant on or off acid was still infinitely more intersting than most actors. I recently watched his acceptance speech at the Oscars (1970?) on youtube. What a class act. As for the acid, please. Judge not...etc.
  17. I have often felt the same way about silent movies. For the most part I just can't get into them. But, there are some notable exceptions. I can definitely take Buster Keaton in small doses and some parts of the Murnau films, "Battleship Potemkin" and most of all, "The Passion of Joan of Arc". I came across "Joan of Arc" by accident a few years ago and I was dumbstruck from the minute I started watching it. It may be the only time I ever became so engrossed in the movie, that I actually forgot I was watching a silent movie. I know I will never forget Falconetti's face .
  18. thanks for the response. I see that the forum search works just fine for what I wanted.
  19. We used to be able to look at or track our posts simply by clicking on our username (profile). But since the "update" I can't do that. Does anyone know of a way to find our posts? Sometimes I don't make it to the site for a couple of days and I can't remember what I posted. (insert getting old joke here.) Thanks for any help!
  20. several of these have already been mentioned, but these are my favorites: Tim Robbins with hands outstretched in "The Shawshank Redemption" Burt Lancaster visiting Deborah Kerr in "From Here To Eternity" Dorothy Malone seducing Bogart in "The Big Sleep" De Niro driving through the New York streets in "Taxi Driver" Hepburn, Peppard and Cat in "Breakfast At Tiffany's"
  21. I've always thought a good movie is a good movie regardless of when it was made. There is always a tendency to think of "the good old days" when it comes to just about anything from art, entertainment, sports, whatever. I love old movies from the 30's and 40's. Possibly because they are from long before "my time", they carry a certain interest and even mystique that a modern movie just can't have. But I do agree that it's not really a fair debate. Movie stars just aren't the same as they used to be. We're bombarded with information about their every move, and way too much about their private l
  22. Some New with some Old: Diane Lane and Priscilla Lane Illeana Douglas and Kirk Douglas Halle Berry and Wallace Berry Hugh Grant and Cary Grant Diane Keaton and Buster Keaton Kristen Stewart and Jimmy Stewart
  23. I've always been a big Joan Fontaine fan. Her early movies show her talent and her beauty. She is a master of displaying the timidity and genuine shyness of her characters. And, did I mention her beauty? She will be 94 on October 22 and lives in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. There was a brief interview with a photo, in the March, 2008, Vanity Fair magazine. You can read it online at VanityFair.com., or just google Joan Fontaine and look it up. (by the way, she still looked pretty darn good at 90)
  24. I was just glad to be able to see it finally. I thought Fontaine was wonderful. I'm actually surprised at the number of comments saying she was so obviously too old. I thought she pulled it off very well as a matter of fact. Her early scenes really do convey the energy and awkwarkness of adolescence. I thought she seemed very natural and not all "forced". I have never been a Charles Boyer fan, so I'm with those who would have preferred somebody else in the role, but, all in all, I thought it was an enjoyable movie.
  25. I just watched a brief clip of this movie on YouTube. Wow. I can't wait to see the whole thing. Joan Fontaine looks....enchanting.
