  1. I do this all the time, especially after a movie I really like. Welcome, Miss J.
  2. Well, imo, even Bette Davis haters have to agree that she was born to play the role of Margo Channing, a self-absorbed diva, in All About Eve. Davis may have chewed some scenery in other roles, but in Eve she was terrific; she did exactly what the role called for.
  3. She's Bette Davis' daughter, and she wrote a nasty tell-all book about her. (Anyway, I'm joking, and welcome to the board.)
  4. I don't mean to pry, but your real name wouldn't happen to be B.D. Hyman, would it?
  5. My mother used to say, "I can't stand Bette Davis!" I never asked her why, but by the look on her face I could tell it was a serious issue with her, lol... It took me a while to get used to her (that is, Davis, and yes, sometimes even my mother), but now I like her.
  6. It made women all across America stop buying blonde wigs.
  7. Hey Jake - I don't mean to b.utt in on your great thread, but I found this fantastic color photo of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford taken in July 1962, just before filming "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?". I wanted to post it somewhere but I didn't want to create an entire thread around it. It also works because it follows that great color photo of Mitchum, too. Keep the pics coming!
  8. Beautifully said, CaveGirl. You rock!
  9. After I saw "The Lady Eve", my appreciation of classic films went from mere entertainment every so often to a hardcore hobby. Six years later, now loaded with books, DVDs, photos, movie posters, a bigger TV screen and a membership on a forum (my only venture into social media), here I am. (Okay, I didn't save anyone from desperate criminals, but it was still a life-changer of sorts...)
  10. It's the start of a poem. "There once was a girl from Nantucket..."
  11. I see Russian spam showing up now... Are these the people Donald Trump is asking to hack into computer systems to find Hillary Clinton's lost e-mails?
  12. One of my favorite soundtracks is from "The Graduate" (I'm a big Simon and Garfunkel fan). The Sounds of Silence or Scarborough Fair, especially, are the top two for me. Welcome!
  13. Lol. Doubtful! And hey, YOU never answered my original question!
  14. Wow, I didn't know Elvis was also in love with Sinatra! (I'm just joking.)
  15. And I know that Gary Cooper was supposed to have been catnip for the ladies, but I never got his appeal. (Yep, I know, another subjective exercise...)
  16. Of the men, Henry Fonda is third and Burt Lancaster didn't even make the list?? Yikes...
  17. Sort of relatedly, sometimes a thread doesn't even have a chance to get off the ground before it devolves into a floor show. I'm the last to point fingers, though, since I've been guilty of side-tracking a topic myself...
  18. Everyone wants to see a real train wreck, even the dead!
  19. On the other hand, Jake, thank you for your star photos thread and the animal threads you keep up. Bansi/mongo is another one with a 'specialty thread' and they are all great.
  20. Yep, speedy, questions like, "Which is your favorite character in 'Bringing Up Baby'?" or, "If such and such character didn’t get hit by a train, do you think he would have won the Nobel Peace Prize?" only hold my interest for so long. "Norman Bates - a real bad guy, or a sympathetic character who loved his mother too much?"
  21. I'm not a poster at imdb (or any other place, for that matter), but sometimes I look at the message boards of the old shows I like, that don't get talked about here. It's not the same. The discussions aren't very hardcore, and sometimes even the more thoughtful questions go unanswered.
