  1. here's a recent slip up: why did tcm place this morning's movie 'the shiralee' under the genre of 'musical'? it was for this reason i did not bother to tune in; i'm glad i double checked.
  2. i love delon; the character he played in this flick was well done; but the walloping he administered to ann-margaret in one scene was rather over the top. i never condone the physical abuse of women.
  3. i watched this french prison break flick months ago; i thought it was excellent.
  4. ho-hum. it's gonna be another one of those nights (04/28). anyway, for tonight, i got on deck: killer that stalked new york, the (1950) mark of dimtrios, the (1944) missing guest, the (1938) sign of four: sherlock holmes' greatest case, the (1932)
  5. i know this flick was released in 1960, but i'm still surprised the word 'sex' (in the movie title) was allowed to slide with the film industry censors.
  6. i finally obtained a copy of this flick. it isn't the best print, but this beggar cannot be choosy. i won't even make an attempt to compare the two; i'm just gonna kick back and enjoy.
  7. i always thought these birthdays were posthumously honored. keep up the great work!
  8. i, too, saw this flick; i thought it was very good. however, i also believed donlevy was too old and too fat for his role.
  9. alright; i think you guys sold me with 'wild river'. i'll cop a copy of the dvd this weekend. and as for the incomparable ms. van fleet, she gives another unforgettable performance in 'gunfight at the o.k. corral'.
  10. i'm enjoying the 'alfred hitchcock presents' marathon me-tv is airing for halloween. some of the episodes are hit or miss; yet entertaining nonetheless.
  11. in 'tarzan and his mate' whenever jane did her 'jane call/yell' i thought i was gonna die. it's real awful.
  12. just a very short time ago, i wouldn't dare watch ANY montgomery clift movie. i read somewhere that he was homosexual; i guess it was this belief that repelled me. however, after seeing him in 'lonelyhearts' and 'from here to eternity', i'm beginning to warm up to the guy.
  13. oh crap. i just discovered that my local library has that dvd in it's collection. i didn't do cardio last night just so i could watch that flick. i can be a real dope sometimes.
  14. 'he knew women' (1930). it aired monday, 10/20. i could not wait until that fricking movie ended. i cherish flicks from the 1930's and all but, i should've known that sometimes when very old flicks are made and casted full of 'nobodies' they tend to reek to high heaven. this one certainly did. the plot was good; but the actors and acting were just awful. but especially irritating was that lowell sherman dood. his make-up job was so effeminate, it was nauseating.
  15. i saw coop in 'cloak and dagger' (directed by fritz lang); he was miscasted (coop kinda played a similar role [espionage-wise] in this flick as he would've in 'foreign correspondent'). and i think he would've been even moreso miscasted (in 1940) under hitch's direction.
  16. too bad; because i thought the ending was one of the best scenes in that great flick. howard da silva was outstanding as usual.
  17. i did not care too much for this guy either; in most of his roles, he primarily played a jerk (probably was much of a knob off-screen also). however, i will give him proppers for his character in 'mildred pierce'
  18. i only managed to skim the book, tb; if kristin does a companion copy, that would be great. as far as those actresses and actors who kristin should've included, i won't reveal them now; i'll gather up some of the best data and post them here.
  19. i finally obtained a copy of gilpatrick's book. kristin did a good job with compiling and writing it. nevertheless, she missed a few good ones. whether that was her intention or not, i believe she should have been a tad more selective with her choices. therefore, i shall myself compile mini biographies (within this thread) of those native wisconsin actresses and actors (whom i discovered in my researches) who merit the accolades and reverence of their respective fans.
  20. i'm gonna continue to name those actresses/actors who have not been mentioned.
  21. great snippet on morgan, tb! i do not care for the guy; i thought he was very smug and arrogant; imo, he even looks it. perhaps those were the type of roles he chose for himself. i searching for the cleanest library copy of gilpatrick's book; but thus far, they all look like folks were reading the book doing the number two in the bathroom (ick).
  22. i'd deem the 'branding' scene in 'the cheat' rather violent; well, at least 'extreme' violence towards women. a rather disturbing and shocking event even for a pre-code.
  23. i cannot believe i never researched this guy. i came across a few books to get me started: mccarthy and mccarthyism in wisconsin - michael o'brien blacklisted by history: the untold story of senator joe mccarthy - m. stanton evans shooting star: the brief arc of joe mccarthy - tom wicker
