  1. For anyone who lives close to New York City, the Film Forum will be showing about 40 films from the Paramount pre-code period. This festival takes place over the course of one month, from Friday, June 24 - Thursday, July 21. There are several little known films that will be shown, and also many hard to find ones, especially The Story of Temple Drake (which I mentioned elsewhere on this board). There are two features shown everyday, and some of the films are shown two days. For a schedule of the films, times, and other info, go to: www.filmforum.org. There are a lot of interesting looking (in p
  2. I thought she was pretty; I always liked her hair - that famous 'peek-a-boo' cut. I didn't think she was the best actress ever, but I didn't think she was the worst either. I found her to be wooden at time as well, but I did like her movies, especially I Married a Witch and Sullivan's Travels.
  3. bundie702 ~ I checked the schedule and James Garner is on Aug. 17. So Judy Garland still has one day like everyone else! I replied on this topic once, but I'm going to say it again: I can't wait for this year's Summer Under the Stars! It looks like a good lineup with some new faces getting full day salutes. I also have to say that I always love the website every August when it gets a 'makeover' for the month. I can't wait to see what it will look like this August!
  4. I thought it was pretty good, and, of course, there are some that I didn't think should have made it. By the time they were getting to the top 25 or so, I was wondering where one line was that didn't make the list (and I thought it definitely would have): "Daddy says 'Everytime a bell rings, an angel gets its wings'" from It's a Wonderful Life. I thought that really would have been on there.
  5. I'll give you my favorites... I like the one from An Affair to Remember: "Oh, it was nobody's fault but my own. I was looking up. It was the nearest thing to heaven. You were there." (although, I like "Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories" even better). I also like another one from Deborah Kerr from Tea and Sympathy: "Years from now, when you talk about this - and you will - be kind." I also like the one from The Thin Man: "I heard you were shot 5 times in the tabloids." / "They never got near my taboloids." Also, from In a Lonely Place: "I was born when she kissed me. I died w
  6. It is a very rare movie...but I am very happy to say that it will actually be screened soon (but not on the small screen)! The Film Forum in New York City is screening about 40 or so films in a series called "Paramount Before the Code." It goes from June 24-July 21. There are usually 2 films a day in a double feature. Some films are shown 2 days and others only one day. There are so many films listed there that are not on video or anywhere, and then there are films that are on tape. A lot of them, however, I have not heard of being widely available for the public. Anyway, The Story of Temple D
  7. For those of you that want to see History is Made at Night, you can buy it on amazon.com for about 18 (not including shipping and handling). I just checked and there were quite a few listed for about that price - they are from second hand dealers. That's not a bad price at all. I'm just writing this because if you want to see it, I suggest it; it's a great movie!
  8. It is funny how many people have seen this movie when it is very hard to find... I, too, have seen it, and I did enjoy it. Joan Fontaine was one of the first old movie actresses I saw (one of the very first old movies I watched was Suspicion) and she has been a favorite of mine ever since. Like others here, I liked Letter from an Unknown Woman a little better; that film, I believe, is really a gem. I did enjoy The Constant Nymph as well though; I thought that Charles Boyer and Joan Fontaine both gave very good performances. I thought that Joan Fontaine applied her nervous - frightened person
  9. erzbet ~ I've seen Zoo in Budapest, and if you get Fox Movie Channel, that's where it can be found; it's a Fox film. It was actually on a week or two ago...
  10. Gene Kelly, Vera Miles, Rags Ragland - August 23
  11. Thanks so much for the info edgdrv! The Innocents is most definitely one of my favorite movies! I am so excited! The first time I saw this movie, it really did frighten me a bit. I thought it was staged so well. Even though I've seen it so many times, I still have been waiting for it to come out on DVD for a while now. Thank you so much for the notice!
  12. I usually like Katharine Hepburn's movies better, but I think that Bette Davis had a little bit more range in her acting abilities than Hepburn. Katharine Hepburn always seemed to have a little bit of the same character in each of the roles she played - herself. Bette Davis, to me, seemed to be able to slip entirely into a character. I personally enjoy most of Hepburn's roles more because I like how she plays them, but I think Bette Davis was the better actress, and most definitely, biggest drama queen!
  13. Tomorrow (or later today) Friday, the 17th, at I believe 9:45 pm In a Lonely Place with Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame is on. It's a great film noir with fabulous performances from both Bogart and Grahame. To me, they are two of the greatest noir actors.
  14. I've always admired Chaplin for his type of comedy, but Bob Hope was just plain hilarious.
  15. Ah, The Seventh Seal. That's one Bergman film that I just can't seem to get into. I've seen it a few times now, analyzed it, and for some reason, it still doesn't appeal that much to me. I think I'm going to have to keep trying with that one... Blue was my second favorite of Kieslowski's "Three Colours" trilogy. I thought it was a good opener to the trilogy, but Red was my favorite, mostly because I loved the storyline and theme of that film. And the ending to Red - I simply loved it!
  16. Hard question... I'd have to go with (in no particular order) The Parent Trap ('61) I See a Dark Stranger ('46) One for the Book ('47) Bringing Up Baby ('38) The Thin Man ('34) I'm more of a comedy person, as you can tell....but barely making my list would be The Innocents, which is a 'horror' movie.
  17. Oh nickdimeo, you reminded me of The Rules of the Game! I have seen it once, but I feel I need to watch it again because I missed some things when I originally saw it, but I did like it a lot...Wild Strawberries is also an excellent film. I really love Ingmar Bergman. The first time I saw his films, I was not really a fan, but my professor for my International Film class is a Bergman scholar, so we watched many of his films and learned a lot about him. A second viewing made me enjoy his films more.
  18. Thanks deborahwakid11! That's great information. This sounds like one of those typical Hollywood stories, but also interesting. Thanks everyone for responding!
  19. I love Daphne du Maurier's works. I remember doing a research paper on her short story collection Don't Look Now. She was great with gothic romance and suspense as in Jaimaca Inn, Rebecca, and My Cousin Rachel. I really like the way she wrote. I think it really would be a good idea to honor the film adaptations of her works! (By the way, I don't mean to be rude or anything, but she didn't do Suspicion. That was written by Francis Iles, I believe, and called Before the Fact; I read it a while ago.)
  20. Sorry nickdimeo if I kind of stole your topic, but it got me thinking...what is everyone's favorite foreign (or international to be more correct) film? This topic is probably on here somewhere already, but I'm going to ask anyway. I really like Fellini's (Italy) and Bergman's (Sweden) films. My two favorites of those directors are Nights of Cabiria and Smiles of a Summer Night. I also really enjoyed a more recent one, by Kieslowski (from Poland), called Red. It is part of the three colors trilogy he made in French, Blue, White, and Red, representing the French flag. Red was the last one and I
  21. Cool topic! I find it even more interesting because I just became interested in foreign films from an international film class I took this year. I must say that I really like Guilietta Masina, who played in a few of Fellini's films (she was Fellini's wife). Loved her in Nights of Cabiria, one of my favorite films. I also like Harriet Andersson (not sure of spelling), Gunnar Bjornstrand (once again, not sure of spelling) and Bibi Andersson from Sweden. All three played in many of Ingmar Bergman's films, including Smiles of a Summer Night, another one of my favorites.
  22. Wow! I come back tonight and see a bunch of posts on my subject! Thanks everyone! Mongo, your information is amazing, where did you get all that from? For some reason, I find this to be an interesting topic. I wonder if Dion is still alive...
  23. Browsing through imdb.com today, I found something that surprised me. I always thought that Barbara Stanwyck had no children (she never had any children of her own, at least). But I was surprised to find out that she did adopt a son in 1932. Does anyone know anything about that? Even after seeing Stella Dallas, I could never picture her as a mother. Maybe it was all those hard-edged women she portrayed... If anyone has any info on this that would be great.
  24. moviejoe ~ close, but a year off...1986...not quite at that 20 yet! I was surprised too at the amount of younger people here, but that's great!
  25. Here are some from my year: Ferris Bueller's Day Off Aliens Platoon Stand by Me Hannah and her Sisters Top Gun
