  1. While Maureen is very good in The Fallen Sparrow...this is Garfield's movie all the way! He plays the haunted and paronoid person to the hilt!!
  2. John Garfield is one of the best actors ever! He deserve's SOTM status every 17 years, that's how long its been!! His life story is truly a rags to rich's event. Grew up in poverty as a kid in NYC only to make it "big" in Hollywood. He represents the American dream, a chance to get to first base! I have numerous books and all his movies on DVD. There is no bigger fan of John Garfield! I am looking forward to February and watching his movies again. I never tire watching Garfield's movies!
  3. Why is TCM only playing 6 movies that of John Garfield on March 4th what woudl have been his 100th birthday? Why is he always a forgotten actor? Why is he not given Prime Time exposure on his birthday. Danny Kaye was given a tribute a few seeks back..an all day salute. Thsi is very disapointing to say the least. Garfield fans should be up in arms. Robert Osbourne says he is a huge Garfield, yet does nothing to show a double feature on this great actor in prime time. Interview some guests and relive the life and times of the great John Garfield. So what does TCM do, they play 6 movies starting
  4. Excellent Warners WW2 movie!!! John Garfield plays real life Hero Al Schmidt, who is blinded at Guadacanal. Wverything thing about this film is just great, from the direction to the music and acting. Eleanor Parker, Dane Clark, Rosemary Decamp are all wonderful. The Philadlphia locations, and the battle scene where Garfield and his mates are hold up with a machine gun is also very authentic. But its Garfield who does a masterful job in this movie. Just another great John Garfield performance!! And he also actually visitied the Schmidts to study the habits of a blind person to make his perfoman
  5. Not only do I like noir films but I love westerns. There is a B western from 1952 called Apache War Smoke...its a remake of a movie called Apache Trail...I seen this movie as a kid and havent seen it since. The 52 movie stars Gilbert Roland...Robert Horton and a cast of many great character actors...does TCM show this movie...and do they even have it in their vault? Any suggestions on how I can get my hands on a DVD if there is one on DVD?
  6. As I pointed out in an earlier post I really enjoy Susan Hayward's acting...so I thought of some other actresses that I think John Garfield would have made a great team if they had acted together in a movie. Besides Hayward, how about Virginia Mayo, Rhonda Fleming, Ruth Roman, Barbara Stanwyck, Jean Simmons, Gene Tierney...just to name a few. I owuld have liked to seen Garfield with some of these and a whole host of other fine actresses!!
  7. Tom H...As I have stated before I love John Garfields acting sicne I was a boy when I seen The Fallen Sparrow...and other movies followed into the 1960s...I didnt know about the HUAC problem...I only cared about watching his films...but as I got older and found out what actually happened to him I even now have a profound respect and admiration for him. I was watching Castle on the Hudson in about 1972...and pat O'brien was being interviewed by a Canadian journalist...and asked Pat how it was to work with Garfield...he said he was a consualte professional...always had an edge to
  8. Thank you Will...oh and yes film noir is my favorite...some of the other stars I admire in film noir movies...Robert Ryan...Virginia Grey...Edmund O'brien...Lawrence Tierney...Alan Ladd...and oh so may more...not only do I love John Garfield...I love classic movies and its stars...love Cagney...Bogie...Robinsosn...March...Muni...Davis....Hepburn...love them all...but Garfield tops the list for me...I can talk all day about classic movies...and I will debate anyone and defend classic movies compared to modern actors and actresses of today...no comparison as far as I am concerned!!
  9. First let me say I have been a John Garfield fan for almost 50 years...thats right 50 years!!! I have the 1974 larry Swindell bio on his live as well as the 2003 Robert Nott book. I know John Garfield's life in and out. I have dozens of gooks and photos concerning him. My kids and my grandkids know who John Garfield is. They watch his movies and enjoy them. If there is a bigger if that is a word bigger John Garfield fan then me I would love to meet him or her. I can tell you all his movies in chronological order, and his co-stars and who directed the films. I could put together a quiz g
  10. I dont really care what anyone thinks about John Garfield's acting style...only what I think...as I said we are entitled to our opinions...and I was so happy today to view all the Garfield films...and the John Garfield biography...what a great talent he was...no one like and there will never ever be another John Garfield!!!!
  11. Funny thing how we all have different opinions...Robert Osbourne has said many times how John Garfield looked like he wasnt acting, for he makes it look so easy...of course I totally disagree with you on your opinion about Garfields actiing...but then that is why we have opinions....a stage trained actor, in m opinion a terrific naturalistic actor to the hilt!!
  12. Hey Top...I guess some people are confused...but as you watch John Garfields acting...really watch him you know he is so natural as an actor...makes it look easy...again I never tire from watching him act in the movies...so happy TCM dedicated today toplay his films...now its even time for more recognition!!
  13. I like this movie...not one of my favorites...but as always Garfield is great in it...I dont recal Laird Cregar to be in this movie.
  14. Please I must add to Lori's wonderful sentiments about my favorite movie actor John garfield. Lori is so correct when she states that some of us have our favorites when it comes to actors and actresses...I love Susan Hayward, she is my favorite actress...but my love for Garfield goes further...when I first seen him as a young boy in The Fallen Sparrow...it struck a nerve in me...I loved everything about the movie, the plot, the sets, the music, but i especially loved Garfields tormented, chip on your shoulder performance. Since I seen that movie oh so many years ago I started reading ma
