  1. Yeah I'm really starting to like Leslie Howard's work too. I did see Petrified Forest but didn't get to finish it. I loved those scenes with Davis and Howard just talking before Bogart showed up. Thanks for the comments everybody. I was just wondering. By the way, how is the book, Of Human Bondage? Was there anything in it that didn't make it to the screen?
  2. Now they've cremated the rabbit without the breeder's permission. Oh dear... http://nypost.com/2017/04/30/breeder-says-united-cremated-giant-bunny-without-her-permission/
  3. I ask this because people don't give it much thought, at least to my knowledge, and I wonder why. It is the performance that made Bette Davis, one of the greastest actresses who ever lived, famous and it showed how downright fearless she was. I don't think any actress of that time would have did what she did in this film. But she's not the only one who makes this film great, in my opinion. Leslie Howard plays the struggling artist whose obsessive love for the cold and apathetic waitress Mildred threatens his career really well and creates a character that I can personally relate to. I think the reason why I love this film is not only the great performances but because of its gritty realism. I highly dislike angsty and dramatic films that end with an overtly happy ending so this one didn't disappoint (spoiler I guess). That's all I have to say about this movie for now. Just wondering here.
  4. I know what you mean. I look forward to reading your reviews on the Pierce Brosnan films. Those are the ones I grew up with so they hold a special place in my heart.
  5. Leave Her to Heaven Next: an actor/actress who later becomes famous appears as an extra
  6. I have to say that the music called Bond Lured to Pyramid in the soundtrack is some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard. Worst Bond film? Maybe, but not all of it is bad. (I know I'm late. Sorry!)
  7. An accident happens on an airplane yet again! This time a record breaking four feet long rabbit has died after take off. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/26/us/united-airlines-rabbit.html?_r=0
  8. Donald O'Connor Next: was considered for the role of James Bond
  9. Laurence Fishburne (he lied in order to get a role in Apocalypse Now) Next: a method actress
  10. Well, this sucks. I never even got the chance to get one of those and I'm disappointed. They looked like they'd be awesome.
  11. What about Anne Revere in National Velvet & The Song of Bernadette? She stood by her daughter in those films no matter what.
  12. Oops. I'm am so sorry! We answered at the same time.
  13. The Blue Gardenia (1953). Wow, what a great thriller. It kept me guessing. How it sets up the plot is almost like how a Hitchcock film would. It also has a dark sense of humor like Hitchcock's films do. I love a good mystery and this was a good one. And I'm really starting to like Anne Baxter who gives a really good performance. You care about her character which is important. BTW, isn't it wierd how this film and The Blue Dahlia (1946) are both named after fictional nightclubs named after blue flowers, involved a murder, and were released a year before and not too long after a very real murder called The BLACK Dahlia case occurred?
