  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 shipping to P.O. BOXES and no expedited shipping on this item. Thanks!"
  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. Thanks for the info. That forum is a must for me. Although, come to think of it, I might've saved some cash without it.
  5. I'll just stick with my first choices, male and female: Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. *sigh* Be still my heart. The most luminously-sad (or sadly-luminous) pair of eyes to grace the silver screen, Sylvia Sidney: Sidney[/i]2.jpg] Yeah, I know - I need Universal to play nice. And I enthusiastically second Gagman's request of Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? - if not for Jacqueline Bisset, then for Robert Morley. He's positively delicious in it!
  6. While it's certainly not as hard to come by as The Cossaks, I was also really looking forward to Rene Clair's And Then There Were None on the evening of the 9th. I certainly don't begrudge Ms. Temple her tribute day, but I do hope this film can also find its way back to the schedule. Hope some powers-that-be are reading your well-reasoned suggestion, Tom.
  7. 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.
  8. Not a whole lot for me. I'm not a June Allyson hater, but I can't claim to be greatly excited by her selection. Would've liked to have seen *The Shrike* included, as it's apparently quite the change-of-pace and has therefore piqued my curiosity. Maybe someday. Oh well - what did catch my eye: *The Mating Season* (1951) - May 11 - Adorably blue-collar Thelma Ritter, mind-numbingly-stunning Gene Tierney, yummy John Lund, bitchy Miriam Hopkins (what can I say - I like her) in an all-in-all terrific Mitchell Leisen comedy *Hobson's Choice* (1954) - May 13 - I'm an admitted sucker when it comes to Charles Laughton, and John Mills and Brenda de Banzie are excellent as helmed by David Lean *Princess Tam Tam* (1935) - May 31 - A rare celluloid glimpse of Josephine Baker - is there a banana skirt among the wardrobe, by the way? And of course, I'm always open to recommendations . . .
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. The first film I think of is The Woman in Question, also featuring a young Dirk Bogarde, and showcasing Ms. Kent as several variations of the titular character: You can see the credits here, and, if you're so inclined, sign up for a free week of Hulu Plus to view the movie:
  15. From an "Ellen" to an "Ella" - Raines, to be precise. She's delightful in Preston Sturges's Hail the Conquering Hero opposite Eddie Bracken. You can also catch her in Robert Siodmak's Phantom Lady, which includes a *wild* scene with Elisha Cook, Jr.'s sleazy drummer. And I agree - lovely eyes . . .
