  1. He also puts in a heck of a performance as a creepy guy obsessed with the tall blonde in "Wicked Woman."
  2. I kinda avoided it for years and then watched it a year or so ago and found it engaging, in part, as time travel to early 1970s NYC. My comments on it here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1376#post-2675823 Plus, I got to learn that Klute was not Jane Fonda's character name - only had that wrong in my head for forty-plus years.
  3. I don't think this was mentioned before (I apologize if it was) , but Hitch offered the lead in "Marnie" to Grace Kelly - she was going to come out of "retirement" to do it - but then decided against it and the role went to Tippi Hedren.
  4. "Summer and Smoke." Good call. As with all Tennessee Williams plays, it ain't easy going, but it does hit on some real and deep human emotions. My comments on it here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1352#post-2587891
  5. Three Secrets from 1950 with Eleanor Parker, Patricia Neal, Ruth Roman and Edmon Ryan Despite sharing the lead with two other women, Three Secrets is Patricia Neal's movie. It's a B-picture melodrama, but she gives it grit and gravitas with an outstanding performance. A plane crashes on a remote mountain top. A military spotter plane takes pictures revealing that a five-year-old boy is the sole survivor. The challenge is how to rescue him before he succumbs. A famous mountain climber is brought in to lead a team up the 12,000 foot peak, while a media frenz
  6. I'm tucking this silly question in here as it didn't seem worth its own thread. I went to the TCM homepage this morning and saw this picture: Before my question, I'll note, Ingrid Bergman is a beautiful woman, period, full stop. That said, does it look like they photoshopped her face in the above pic to make it look thinner and more angular? That's it; that's my question.
  7. You're right - those would be really good remakes with the added freedom today affords them. But they'd have to be period films as, otherwise, there's almost no conflict in "The Children's Hours," and the same for "The Letter," as the career and life-wreaking fallout from an affair just doesn't really exist today like in did then.
  8. Agreed - at least by 1960, they could have them be "implied" lesbians (even if they did it cryptically) like the original play and versus the 1936 one. I haven't seen "The Law and the Lady," but will now keep an eye out for it. Herbert Marshal did a similar thing in two versions of "The Letter," as he was the man having the affair in the 1929 version and the man being cuckold in the 1940 version. Also, it's really interesting to see Jeanne Eagles' take on the lead role versus Betty Davis'.
  9. I couldn't agree more. I've done that on my own for these two films as it's fun to see how the same story is interpreted differently by different directors, actors and eras. No surprise, but "Red Dust" and "Mogambo" are another good pair as are the '33 and '41 versions of "When Ladies Meet." There are, of course, several other similar pairs, but these are ones I've done the back-to-back viewing thing with. Oh, just thought of another obvious one, "The Philadelphia Story" and "High Society."
  10. This and its remake, "The Children's Hour," are outstanding movies, even if the '36 one, in particular, had to be tone down for the norms of the day.
  11. Her Highness and the Bellboy from 1945 with Hedy Lamarr, Robert Walker and June Allyson Her Highness and the Bellboy is a silly little fairytale of a movie. The plot, which has been recycled since they've been making movies, is about a princess, Hedy Lamarr, from some unnamed European country, who wants to marry a "commoner" for love, as opposed to marrying, as was expected of her, some boring royal guy for the good of her country. Lamarr, trying to escape the pressure to make the "right" marriage, takes a trip to New York City in search of the man, a "common
  12. It's a fun soap opera with an incredible cast. My comments on it here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1400#post-2721142
  13. Great call. That was one outstanding performance as the wife from hell tucked inside a fantastic movie. My comments on the movie here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1398#post-2716961
  14. "Suspicion" is another Hitchcock movie that is so beautifully filmed, you can watch it on mute in the background (as I do all day as I WFH) and really enjoy it.
  15. I saw this movie for the first time about six months ago (comments here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-was-the-last-movie-you-watched.20830/page-1449#post-2826765) and had similar thoughts in the sense that, yes, it has excesses and flaws, but still a heck of an impressive movie driven by Keaton's and a few others' incredible performances.
