  1. Wow that's sad. Those stars were expected to stay so thin, and that was the day of women using smoking as a diet aid, "Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet."
  2. Yeah, sorry. I guess I've taken skimming to a new level and only read the first half of sentences now. Heaven help us if they do make a new one with one of the Ryans.
  3. Grace Kelly -- Rear Window Natalie Wood -- Splendor in the Grass Elizabeth Taylor -- A Place in the Sun Gene Tierney -- Laura Audrey Hepburn -- My Fair Lady Deborah Kerr -- The King and I Lana Turner and Donna Reed -- Green Dolphin Street Sophia and Raquel are great ladies but a little too earthy and fleshy for my taste, but I'm a woman and prefer the ones who are elegant and slender in clothes, rather than the ones who are most sexy out of them. {Am I the only one who noticed Sophia looks like she swallowed a cantaloupe in that bikini picture?}
  4. The one who made my skin crawl (maybe that's a different thread) was Marsha Gaye Harden, who seemed to be egging on all the violence and confusion while flirting with Sean Penn's character and baby talking through the whole film.
  5. "It's Love I'm After" is featured in one of my favorite Youtube bits. So I had to watch it and I really like it, too. Leslie Howard
  6. I love Wendell Corey in A Holiday Affair because his lack of sex appeal is a running joke through out the movie. Janet Leigh has been dating him for years when she meets Robert Mitchum after which Wendell no longer has any chance at all, even her in-laws and her little boy are rooting for Mitchum. Wendell's character accepts all this disrespect with so much good nature and humor I'd fallen for him by the time it was over. His most charming role.
  7. The mini-series version with Kate Winslet has all that plus what seemed like 25 sex scenes of Kate and whoever played Zachary Scott's part, and yes, Veda reached astounding new levels of evil. I thought the new version was interesting and I loved the meticulous period detail, but it didn't have the wonderful stylish film noir snap of the Crawford version. Anyone else see the Winslet version?
  8. I like all the movies taken from Cain's novels. I first read, "The Postman Always Rings Twice," condensed in my family's "Saturday Evening Post" -- or was it "Life", I'm not sure. Anyway, it was quite educational for a ten year old girl.
  9. We enjoyed it. Narrator while Nick and Debra were dancing, "Nobody thought to tell them that they weren't any good." We've found that line useful so many times.
  10. The thing that bothers me after my 20th viewing is Barton Keyes talking about the woman he loved and almost married -- until he found out she dyed her hair and had a mentally ill person in the family. Jerk.
  11. Never underestimate the power of a really hot ankle bracelet.
  12. I never get tired of it. The plot moves along at a quick rom-com pace that builds nicely. Doris's clothes are the period's perfection. The set decorations are a treat in themselves. The housekeeper is a hoot. The scene in the diner where Doris is sobbing and everyone thinks her friend, played by Tony Randall, is the cad who upset her -- absolutely hilarious. The part where telephone-Rock Hudson tries to convince her that Texas-Rock Hudson is gay -- is hilarious in a dozen different ways. You can see how much all the leads love and enjoy working with each other.
  13. Kim Novak must really be suffering for her art, sitting on her heels like that.
  14. There's a great scene in "A New Leaf," where Walter Matthau is talking to his blind date, who is a bit too forward. She is going on about freedom and starts to take her bikini top off when he screams, "Don't let them out!" Ma Kettle was usually braless, why haven't you guys posted her picture?
