  1. Guy Hamilton's The Devil's Disciple is also coming from Kino on 11/24. A fave of mine.
  2. Today only at FoxConnect, the coupon code GRAPES will get you that giant 24 film-John Ford box set from a few years ago for $49.99: http://www.foxconnect.com/ford-at-fox-the-collection.html?utm_source=fc_eblast_20140501_ford&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=fc_eblast_20140501_ford The following disclaimer on the site made me laugh - "Note: This box set weighs more than 13 lbs and will be shipped in a fairly large box that could double as a second home! It will also take a little bit of extra time to get these huge sets packed up, so please be patient. There will be no shippin
  3. Hey, Just thought I'd mention that Forever Amber has been released as part of Fox's DVD-R line and is currently listed at $13.95 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Forever-Amber-Linda-Darnell/dp/B00JXVNVRG/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1398882685&sr=1-1&keywords=forever+amber So much for the Blu-ray edition I was hoping for . . .
  4. Here's the bio you're referring to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm9apa0_AL8 I did manage to record Chad Hanna this time, by the way. Thanks for the heads-up, Arturo.
  5. Here ya go . . . I adore David Raskin's score of this movie. Gives me goosebumps. This needs to make it to Blu-ray somehow, though I'm not optimistic. I missed your helpful heads-up, but will try to keep an eye out for Chad Hanna if turns up on FMC again. I really wish they'd get their online schedule back up.
  6. Amazon Deal of the Week - "The Marilyn Monroe Classic 9-Film Blu-ray Collection" for $39.99 *Bus Stop* *Niagara* *Gentlemen Prefer Blondes* *How to Marry a Millionaire* *River of No Return* *There's No Business Like Show Business* *The Seven Year Itch* *Some Like it Hot* *The Misfits* http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ref=pe_218170_111683280_pe_button/?ASIN=B00FC1ZC9Q
  7. Thanks for the photo and info on Madeleine Carroll's efforts on behalf of refugee children during WWII. France even awarded her the Legion d'Honneur I've always loved her. Sadly, I believe she lost her only sister in the London Blitz. Have you seen this great riff on the famous Grable pin-up shot?
  8. Mongo - Seems I'm always running a tad behind, but I just wanted to throw in my appreciation for your efforts around here, as well as best wishes/positive energy/good karma, etc. regarding your health. I just hope you get a fraction of the pleasure from this entertaining and informative thread that we humble followers do. And not to sound too Sarah Palin, but do you mind if I call you Joe? Lovely photo of the lovely Lee Remick, too. I've always thought she was exquisite. So good in Anatomy of a Murder.
  9. Filmlover - thank you so much for your continual updates. They're much appreciated. I'm so thrilled to see The Private Affairs of Bel Ami among the list of new Olive acquisitions. As in his other collaborations with writer-director Albert Lewin, George Sanders is in peak cad-form opposite such ladies as a stunning, baby Angela Lansbury, the always-captivating Ann Dvorak, gorgeous Frances Dee, typically-blonde Marie Wilson, etc. Also - Warren William's final screen appearance. Now I just have to be patient, right?
  10. Laura Hunt and Waldo Lydecker share a b-day? Who knew! Seriously though, was there ever a more exquisite creature than Gene Tierney?
  11. Dietrich was amazing, indeed. Thought you might enjoy this:
  12. I've always found it ironic that Louise Brooks and Veronica Lake share their birthday. It's iconic cinema coiffure day!
  13. >Thank you, Nora, for finally letting me see this now-classic AHP episode. So glad you enjoyed it. With the exception of I Love Lucy, I've never been into older TV series, so I only discovered AHP about a year or so ago. I really get a treat out of spotting the wide variety of familiar faces that pop up - usually older or younger than I'm accustomed to seeing someone. Mr. Lloyd directed quite a number of episodes and appeared as an actor occasionally, too. And Mongo - while it seems I'm always lagging a few days behind, I just want to say you selected a lovely shot of the equ
  14. Amazon Spotlight Deal of the Week - "Forever Marilyn" Blu-ray ($27.34) and "Rodgers & Hammerstein" DVD ($34.79) collections: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=pe_507280_44421670_pe_button/?rh=i%3Aaps&hidden-keywords=B0089J27VY%7CB000HT3PGU&ie=UTF8
  15. Belated thanks for informing me of Norman Lloyd's 99th birthday. He worked with many legendary figures, and I've always enjoyed his commentary and anecdotes in various featurettes and documentaries. The gentleman also holds the distinction of having directed the Alfred Hitchcock Presents gem, "Man from the South" starring Steve McQueen and Peter Lorre (talk about an odd couple ): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz7vMJBKCnc Lillian Gish reminds me so much of Una Merkel in that photo, by the way.
