I'm not talking about the "joking" threads, but about interesting
  2. Don't put it past me. (none of us is getting any younger.)
  3. all right: below are three rounds of the first annual FRAU-OFF between Claudette Colbert and Mary Astor to see quien es mas matronly. fellow posters: scroll down a few to view the models and cast your votes.
  7. > {quote:title=finance wrote:}{quote}Now that the Sprockster is on hiatus, we DO need someone to step up. Yes, but I don't think *I'm* that person. I don't know the original aspect ratio of everything ever released by heart; hell, I don't even know what "aspect ratio" even is, and for the longest time, I thought it was Cashiers du Cinema . I thought there was one "G" in Gregg Toland and I thought Mary Astor died in 1964. And I STILL get Van Heflin and Van Johnson mixed up. No, I am not man enough to step in to the vacancy left by Herr Sprocket. Is anyone?

  10. One also gets the impression that Mary wouldn't give half a rat'sass whether you found her sexy or not- which of course is one of the reasons so many of us love Bette Davis as well.
  11. ...and it's always a little head-scratching when TCM is showing a film as part of a salute to someone, and then in the in and/or outroes the host proceeds to talk extenseively about some other facet of the film (costar, director, studio etc.) rather than *the reason they're ostensiblly showing the thing in the first place.* It's like: why bother?
  12. I really like Mary Astor for a lot of reasons: first and foremost: she was a great actress whose primary concern no matter what the film seems to be *not* "do I look good?" or "how I can steal this scene?" or "are they lighting me right?" *but: "what is the truest representation of the character I can put out there and how do I make it inn-teresting?"* Even in film where her role is not that good ( A Kiss Before Dying ) or at the stage of her career when no one was going to mistake her for Ava Gardner ( Little Women, Act of Violence, The Maltese Falcon, The Great Lie and- if I may- an obs
  13. (gas on the fire here:) I am 99.9% positive that Osborne gave *the exact same info* about Lewis Stone in Scaramouche the last time it aired in prime time, which was possibly (?) when it was featured during Stewart Granger's (rather inexplicable selection as) SOTM. I didn't watch it this time around, but *I distinctly remember* Lewis Stone and his presence in both versions of the story was the sole focus in the outro the one time I did sit thru Scaramouche. (which was enough for me) Edited by: AddisonDeWitless on Jun 18, 2013 11:39 AM Edited by: AddisonDeWitless on Jun
