  1. Oh, yes. Now I remember. Greta Garbo.
  2. Marcello Mastroianni. If you got the hint from my OP, I discounted animated characters. Thanks for the alliteration with different spelling! Now I wonder if there are names that start with the same spelling, but are pronounced differently. Un-literation?
  3. Bring a little lightness into every day. Had no idea there were so many. I was thinking of a companion thread for the ends of names, but I could not think of the corresponding term. I don't think it's rhyme because it's only the last sound. I wonder if there's an alliterative name that's spelled differently.
  4. Jennifer Jones. Parker Posey. um. . . . Betty Boop. no. . .dang.
  5. No, I'm not mistaken. I'm referring to the TV production with as good a cast as the movie: Claudette Colbert, Lauren Bacall, Noël Coward, and Mildred Natwick. Trimmed for TV, it's fifteen minutes shorter than even the movie (wonder how long the stage play was). It doesn't lose anything, it's snappier, more direct. They all have their timing down, and deliver their lines without fault--not an easy thing in this play. There's a lot to say and it must all be light and airy as a--well, you know. But though Miss Bacall is really nifty, floaty, vain, scheming, and, um, blithe, the scene steal
  6. I assume so when the poster is a first timer, voices the same wrong criticism of TCM, and doesn't show up again after the first post.
  7. Last Sunday was still 31 days o' Oscar. Sorry, my bad. It was Satyaji Ray's 100th bday eclipsing for one night the usual programming. Was that wrong?
  8. Another one shot wonder. It's got to be really the same person repeatedly creating identities to create a false impression.
  9. Isn't that the scenario for about a third of Hallmark movies?
  10. They are all worth seeing. You can see both Metropolis (1927, even the fully to-date restored version) and The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) on various internet sources like Internet Archive, YouTube, and dailymotion. Metropolis is one of the great monuments of moviemaking. Some parts will seem dated to the point of silliness, but ultimately it is a powerful statement about humanity and compassion. It set the pattern for all dystopic visions of society. The Passion. . . has one of the supreme performances on screen. Excruciating to watch--in a good way. To Be or Not To Be (1942)
  11. You needn't be so modest. I rate an actress' beauty by my internal response (a personal scale, I know). Miss Grahame equals or exceeds any of the standard beauties.
  12. I guess I'm not saying anything that's a surprise. I was prompted to post, however, by watching a recording I made of a movie from Fox movie channel, a recording when Fox movie channel was part of the DirectTV package I have (Funny, HBO, which I have almost no interest in, is included, but Fox, which I do, is not). Anyway, the movie, The Man Who Never Was (1956), an above average wartime thriller based in London, has her in a small but intense roll as a woman involved with a flier. You can probably tell what happens. Her story intertwines with the main plot, and offers her some moments tha
  13. You could try sending a PM to the TCMModerator1: https://forums.tcm.com/messenger/compose/?to=41337
