  1. IMDb says that Laraine Day never smoked in her movies or in real life because of her Mormon faith. I've heard that Grace Kelly refused to smoke in her movies but for some reason she did in Rear Window. I wonder why.
  2. I've been to Worldmark in Indio, California lots of times and they have TCM on demand and TV. The rooms also have DVD players so you can play your own movies.
  3. Harrison Ford is an actor who points quite a lot in his movies as well and he and Glenn have the same surname. Well that's a weird coincidence.
  4. She did an amazing job in Rashomon. I love that shot of her just sitting in the forest with her white veil. It's very beautiful.
  5. Piper Laurie as Carrie's mother in Carrie (1976) definitely qualifies as a worst
  6. We'll never know Lillian's side of the story for obvious reasons but this sounds like what most likely happened. It's true that actors and actresses cannot afford to be very picky early on in their careers. Stardom is not achieved instaneously. Heck, Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone were both in pornos when they were first starting out.
  7. https://mb.ntd.com/trustees-vote-to-remove-actress-name-from-school-theater_325897.html The reason is because Lillian starred in The Birth of a Nation, the most racist film ever made and I don't blame them. I'm a black person myself and I personally like Lillian Gish especially for her performances in Broken Blossoms and Orphans of the Storm but I am aware and disappointed that she starred in that film. It's extremely sad that one of the most influential films is also the most racist.
  8. My family are frequent moviegoers and usually have a good time but every once in a while... I recently went to see the new Mission Impossible movie with my family and a woman brought a toddler who was making all kinds of noise throughout the viewing. I had already seen the movie with my father and knew there was one utterance of the f-word so I immediately got worried. A full-on fight broke out when my family went to see the newest Spiderman movie when apparently someone kept kicking another person's seat and they started arguing. My brother and father immediately jumped to break it
  9. I think it's safe to assume that TCM will include her in the next TCM Remembers tribute since they did for Prince and David Bowie who also didn't act primarily and the first Blues Brothers movie is regarded as a classic though I could be wrong.
  10. Spirited Away Next: former friends/allies/lovers turn against each other
  11. I actually saw this woman not too long ago in a documentary called Side by Side at my film class. She talked briefly about the famous cut in Lawrence of Arabia. Very sad.
  12. Peter Finch and Murray Head in Sunday Bloody Sunday. Unforgettable!
  13. That moment in the film noir Phantom Lady when Elisha Cook Jr. is playing the drums while Ella Raines watches.
  14. Wouldn't Stagecoach be so much better if Dallas (Claire Trevor) got together with Lucy (Louise Platt) instead of brutish John Wayne (John Wayne)? They actually had decent character development and seemed to learn from each other.
  15. Crap, then I guess Wikipedia lied to me. Glad to know somebody acknowledged her during her final days.
  16. Helen Chandler (February 1, 1906 - April 30, 1965) 52 years after her early death at fifty-nine, ardent horror fans remember Helen Chandler as the fragile beauty Mina Howard in the Universal horror film "Dracula" (1931) who is seduced by the famous vampire himself. Although Helen was not impressed by the role she is most famous for, it continues to be a reminder of the talented young woman she was during her short time on this earth. Originally born in Charleston, South Carolina, Helen Chandler rose up to become one of the most popular actresses in the Big Apple, and starred in
  17. I would have loved to see her in a Hitchcock film! I'm sure Hitch would find some way to make use of her athleticism.
  18. This Above All (1942) Aristocratic Prudence Cathaway (Joan Fontaine) shocks her family by coming out as bisexual and enlisting in the WAAFs. She then meets and becomes romantically involved with the depressed widow of a fallen soldier (Claire Trevor) who hates the war.
  19. Noooo!!!!! This is terrible! I loved her so much in Gun Crazy which has become one of my favorite film noirs and movies in general! I think she was one of the Top 10 best femme fetales in film! The studio totally failed her by not seeing her potential. RIP Peggy.
  20. Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon would also be excellent on a rainy day.
  21. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) next: a character is cleary a feminist
