  1. My Neighbor Totoro Next: on set drama hampered filming
  2. 10. The movie won more Oscars in one evening than any other Disney movie. Next: A Clockwork Orange
  3. Dan Ackroyd. He seems like an interesting guy. Next: Which film director would you rather get in to a heated argument with? Francis Ford Coppola or Stanley Kubrick?
  4. Mine is Veda Pierce from Mildred Pierce because her relationship with her mother reminds me of my rekationship with my mother. I can be downright cruel to her at times but at the same time I need her more than anything. If I lost her, I don't know what I'd do. That's why Mildred Pierce is such an impressive film because it's a true representation of how far a parent would go to protect thier child even if they are spoiled brats.
  5. I don't think she was a terrible actress though. Her acting abilities were decent at best but her range was very limited. Did she ever star in a movie where she wasn't a pampered rich girl?
  6. 2. Audrey Hepburn won the Academy Award for her performance in Roman Holiday.
  7. Romeo & Juliet (1968) I think it counts because Balthazar mistakenly thought Juliet was actually dead and Friar Lawrence's letter never gets to Romeo. Next: the author of the book the movie was based on HATED it
  8. I'm dying to watch this movie! Its looks and sounds so good. I hope TCM will show it soon.
  9. Right now they are: 1. Vivien Leigh 2. Greta Garbo 3. Clara Bow (I wish TCM would show more of her movies)
  10. Now, Voyager Next: a group of strangers have to work together to achieve a common goal
  11. Maria Falconetti (remembered only for her role as Joan of Arc in The Passion of Joan of Arc) Next: never studied acting
  12. Clara Bow and Lillian Gish are my favorites. I watched "It" on Youtube and I've loved her ever since. She was a natural. My favorite Gish films so far are Broken Blossoms, Orphans of the Storm, and The Night of the Hunter. I really want to see the movie she did with Bette Davis during her later years. I also like Lupe Velez, Alla Nazimova, and Leatrice Joy.
  13. Do you have an opinion about a movie/actor/director/etc. that isn't often shared by the majority of people? If so, share that opinion here. The purpose of this thread is not to criticize others but to start interesting discussions about cinema. My unpopular opinion is that Elizabeth Taylor is a very overrated actress. It's not that I don't like her as a person but as an actress I think she is very wooden. I haven't seen Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? or Butterfield 8 but I did see her in Reflections of a Golden Eye and bits and pieces of her in other films. Her Southern accent was TERRIBL
  14. Yeah, there's that movie. The title alone is a good enough reason to watch it on a rainy day. Thanks for sharing.
  15. It's raining cats and dogs outside. You're at home alone. What do you do? Watch movies, of course! Key Largo (1948) and 12 Angry Men (1957) are probably among the best to watch on this occasion because they both give you that sense of isolation and the rain would make great background noise. Other movies I think would be good are Citizen Kane (1941), Psycho (1960), The Letter (1940), and Waterloo Bridge (1940).
