  1. I own "Querelle" and bought it years ago mostly not knowing what it was like but the director's cachet intriqued me. Have to admit that a bit of it was a little shocking, but all in all, it is a well made film and I was really impressed with Franco Nero's performance in such an offbeat role. Actually, the outside and humongous wooden poles on the wharf were the most frightening phallic symbols I'd ever seen.
  2. Agreed, Top Billed! A very lovely lady who was always appealing in her roles. I particularly remember Carol in an AHP episode about a lost statue and a convent. I think it also starred Clu Gulager and there's a name one doesn't hear of much now. Carol played a novice who gets involved in a world unknown to her, a bit like the young nun in Bunuel's "Viridiana". I recall seeing Carol discussing once that she was always being put on a diet, after her early child modeling years, to maintain a slim figure. She was quite beautiful and belongs in the group of ethereal blondes that also included Yvette Mimieux and Inger Stevens in my opinion. A bit lost, a bit sad, a bit mysterious...
  3. This is a difficult question to answer, Spence. I would agree that Falconetti's performance is one of the greatest in history but the background on the production and release of this film is so convoluted, it might preclude any totally correct answer. Firstly, if I recall correctly the AA probably would have entered this film, being that it was directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer but produced in France, only in possibly the Special Achievement category, due to the foreign implications, but that category is not even mentioned in the first year of selections. Secondly, though I have five books about the film, I have not yet discovered whether it was even entered into any such proceedings for awards, though it did receive some like the National Board of Review's in 1929. Plus due to the destruction of it in various fires in the late 1920's and its consequent reconstruction, with also cuts having been made by those in authority, left Dreyer possibly in a strange situation with no exact reproduction of his beginning work. It was originally released in Copenhagen in early 1928 and later in Paris that same year, but its progression at being seen worldwide is a bit confusing. I shall continue my research and see what I can find in my books on Dreyer. Falconetti also would probably not have been seen by the entire film community as popular as the mainstream film actresses being honored in Hollywood ceremonies, which could have proved to be problematic. I would definitely vote Renee Falconetti in over Pickford as of today, that's for sure!
  4. I always wished Sandy's beau in the film had been Tab Hunter instead of old boring Troy Donahue!
  5. If we are talking about wooden coat hangers and abortions, I hope no one brings up another clothing item, namely hatpins, and Frank Sinatra's mother who was supposedly known as Hatpin Dolly if I recall correctly, in her neighborhood where there were many wayward women in the same trouble as Carol Lynley. Loved the part of BD where Brandon's mommy wants to give him the book on you-know-what!
  6. That's too bad. He added some color to the proceedings.
  7. Thanks, Dargo! I kind of think men with big noses look better than those with small noses, like Paul Williams.
  8. He never even would have cleared the holster, would he, Shane, I mean, Sergeant Markoff? Pa's got things for you to do, and Mother wants you. I know she does, Sergeant Markoff! Come back! Come back, Sarge...please!!!
  9. Brian Donlevy as a tyrant in "Beau Geste". Wow! Watched all the films which I'd already seen but who cares, it was Brian Donlevy day. Wonder if he and Neil Hamilton were friends? I dig "The Glass Key" too, LHF!
  10. Wonderful documentary. While watching I felt like I was living in a Bergman film, like walking through the house of depression in "Cries and Whispers" which instead of death throes was relationship pain, or was in "Persona" with Ingmar's other females interacting with Liv, or even "Winter Light" where instead of a loss of faith, Liv was suffering from a loss of love perhaps for Ingmar. Very moving revelations about their relationship which one can see parodied perhaps in some of his films.
  11. I'll start: "The Great Man" from 1956. Jose Ferrer nails it and someone else, to the cross. Good show. Next?
  12. Hey, I've been incommunicado for a while, so what are you "keeping"??? If it is Michael Rennie, drop him off some time! Enjoying your posts, by the way.
  13. Spence, I think I would enjoy hearing Jenna Malone's choices more so thanks for the slight boo boo.
  14. If you dig that classic car, you might like the Fanimation Urbanjet Fan, which comes in Baby Blue, Sonic Silver and Spicy Red, not maybe GM colors but dig the resemblance to the famous car! https://www.enlightenmentmag.com/news/fanimation-urbanjet-line-with-festive-party
