  1. What are you looking forward to watching? I want to know what interests everyone. That, I thought was the purpose of this forum: to discuss, compare, contrast, enlighten. No one has to agree. I read posts every day praising movies I would never watch. But to each his own. I respect everyone's choices. It took 25 minutes for you to belittle my choice. Perhaps you were feeling clever, but I thought your post was mean-spirited and I was offended. Does disagreeing with me in that way make you feel superior?

     

    This is the last I have to say on this subject. I just wanted to make myself clear. Gnug ist gnug!

  2. Does it get any more macabre and campy than this? Crawford AND Davis! It's as wicked as it gets, and much of it is downright kinky. Truly a classic. Who could ever forget "I've Written a Letter to Daddy"? Supposedly, in the scene where Davis kicks the crap out of Crawford she really did injure her. But with all of Crawford's incessant buzzing, I'd want to kick her too! The dead parakeet, followed by the rat, garnished and served to Blanche on a silver platter; Jane wielding a hammer at Elvira the housekeeper... too much!

     

    Victor Buono, another gay actor (Edwin Flagg) later played Davis' father in *Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte*. The girl next door who is watching Blanche Hudson's old movis on TV every day after school, is Davis' daughter B.D.

     

    Does anyone have more inside *Baby Jane* info to share? There should be a book about it, if there isn't already. I have a book called "All About 'All About Eve'" (ISBN 0-312-25268-4).

  3. "Mr. cold, dead hands" Clint Eastwood as Josey Wales.

     

    Not my cup of tea, but believe it or not I watched it! (Mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea? I think Doris Day or Betty White, also residents, would have been better. So they'd have more dog poop than spent shell casings in the streets :) )

  4. cmvgor, since a week's gone by and you haven't add one, do you mind if I do? If I'm out of line, let me know.

     

    It was a TV movie before it was remade for the big screen. Of the three main characters only one is the same in both versions. Hint: the theatre version won an Oscar for Best Original Song.
