  1. Ali MacGraw was in *Goodbye, Columbus* with Richard Benjamin
  2. *Private Lives of a Bengal Lancer* Next: big
  3. Sorry, I didn't notice my name. Thanks for pointing it out to me Lavender. I'll gladly take a turn. A very beautiful and vain woman with many beaux marries a wealthy man to pay the debt her brothrer owes him. She give him the air, has a daughter and sends her away too. The years pass and her looks fade from age and disease. In the end both daughter and husband return, and she finally learns that true beauty comes from within.
  4. Clark Gable in *It Happened One Night* is one more Sorry, guess I should scroll down before I jump in. *It Happened One Night* was already mentioned. I give up. They just don't give Oscars for comedies! Edited by: FilmAficionado on Feb 23, 2011 11:15 AM
  5. In 1965 I appeared in my first film and had a starring role. I was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for that film in 1966. At the time I was the youngest nominee ever in that category. I lost to Julie Christie. Over the next few years I was in a few more films and did some TV. But I will always be remembered for my first role. Unfortunately, I became mentally ill and soon was unable to work. Finally, in 1985 I moved to Pittsburgh near my family so they could look after me. I lived within walking distance of a mental hospital where I kept appointments. I was also near Carnegie Me
  6. Jane Wyman was in *The Lost Weekend* with Ray Milland
  7. cmvgor seems to be the expert in this genre. For the most part I don't care for westerns, but there are a few: *Destry Rides Again*, *Johnny Guitar*, et al. Where are you cmvgor? Why haven't you replied, bud?
  8. It was sung by Dick haymes and Vivian Blain. Next song: "No more doubt of fear, I've found my way." Name song, movie and singer.
  9. Rogers and Hamersteins's "It's a Grand Night for Singing," in *State Fair* last night. There was an earlier version. BTW, Jeanne Crain was my mother's favorite actress, they were the same age and she wished she looked like her. I really do think they looked alike in 1945!
  10. Jane Wyman was in *Johnny Belinda* with Charles Bickford
  11. JohnnyG, I've never seen *The Good Son*, I must be a lot older than you. But I have seen *Tomorrow, the World* a few times. A war orphan who is turned around from his brainwashing by loving Americans. Same as the Greek youth in *Woman of the Year*. That's different from a psychopath, without a conscience, who is incapable in knowing right from wrong. That is Rhoda in *The Bad Seed*, and in *In Cold Blood* just shown on TCM. (Hmmm, Bobby Blake... does reality imitate reality?)
  12. I too have seen *The Bad Seed* many times and I never tire of it. At least one line is a camp classic:"*YOU BETTER GIVE ME THOSE SHOES!!!*". Yes, it looks like a play. I can always tell a play made into a movie within the first five minutes, even if I didn't know it before. But thank God so many wonderful plays have been made into movies for others to enjoy. Most of us weren't even born before the original stage versions (e.g.*The Women*, *The Little Foxes*, *A Streetcar Named Desire* ). And even if we were alive and old enough to appreciate classic plays, many of us can't always make it
  13. Answer: Longfellow Deeds hometown in *Mr. Deeds goes to Town*. Clue: Shangri-La Next? Edited by: FilmAficionado on Feb 21, 2011 1:08 PM
  14. Answer: The country in *The Rains Came* Clue: Mandrake Falls
  15. The clue must be a fictitious place, the answer is the movie it was in. The fictitious place can be a town, country or a homestead. I thought of it last night while watching a TCM movie. If the clue were either "Peckerwood" or "Upson Downs" the answer would be *Auntie Mame*. (Beekman Place wouldn't qualify because it's real). After reading the clue, post the name of the film. For "extra credit" you may also include an actor and/or character names associated with the place, but that's not required. Then, if you like, post another clue for the nest person to answer. For example: if the clue
  16. Wow! What great info.! More than I expected, really a short biography. Thank you all! I'm now going to watch *Auntie Mame*. A lot of great quotes from that flick! Perhaps tomorrow we can discuss the movie and Rosiland Russell (or maybe even Peggy Cass )
  17. That's a really tough one! It's *Miller's Crossing* and the only reason I know that is I have the video. Someone gave it to me or I bought in a thrift store for $1! I'll follow with a really easy one. Closing line: "Don't ask for the moon when we have the stars."
  18. Judy Holiday is on TCM tonight in *Born Yesterday*. I am not well-versed in post 1950 films. I know she beat Bette Davis for *All About Eve* and Gloria Swanson for *Sunset Boulevard* as Best Actress in 1950. In her first starring role! While I was a little surpried at that, I really liked her and am a fan. Miss Holiday only made a few films in a short period of time. I believe her first was *Adam's Rib* in a supporting role. Then *Born Yesterday*, *The Marrying Kind*, then *It Should Happen to You* (just shown on TCM), then *PFFFT* (I didn't care for that much). The final one and my favori
  19. *Trouble in Paradise* Herbert Marshall Bette Davis Teresa Wright
