  1. I ordeded the book by Bob Thomas about Joan Crawford after seeing Joan Crawford The Ultimate Movie Star. In it I learned that Ann Blyth suffered a broken spine/ and on wikipedia it says a back injury. I am curious as to what happened to cause such a young women to have such an injury happen to her back. Does anyone out there know? On wikipedia it says she could not capitilaze on her nomination for the best supporting actress Oscar due to the injury and its true in her filmography she makes Pierce and then the next movie is in 1947. I for one did not know that Ann was nominated for the best sup
  2. You lucky dog! Please enjoy yourselves and remember you must have a good time for you and for me. I will take this time to relate a conversation between myself amd my oldest son. I was telling my parents about the TCM cruise(while we were on vacation this past June in Myrtle Beach) and telling how I wished I could go. My son pops off and says why Mom you'll be the youngest person there....I'm 41. Then I wondered who would be on the cruise( this was before who was going was known to me or possibly announced) so my son thinking of the only older star he could think of Kirk Douglas. ( He was impr
  3. I am shocked, shocked that the powers that be at TCM let a spoiler through and not tell/warn that it is there. When I first joined this website the telling of or spoiling plot lines was a criminal offense. Of course from time to time the Now Playing guide gets the details wrong about a movie or even the announcer between the movies gets things wrongs but not very often.
  4. sfpcc1 I saw your post while hunting for any possible post about Joan Crawford on her day SUTS. I haven't seen The Deer Hunter on TCM. I have seen it ordered it from netflix. I think this movie is a wonderful movie with a lousy title and a putting off trailer or clips. I gave it a chance after reading about it in a book about the Oscars. This man was quoted as not wanting or caring about working class or poor people but he was crying at the end of The Deer Hunter so I gave it a shot. The hunting and the war and the Russian Roulette is a small part of this movie but necessary a necessary plot p
  5. This movie came out ( I'm guessing) between 1985 and 1995. I thought Alex Winter was in it but when I went to the imdb website none of his movie titles seeemed to match my memory. The reason I thought that Winter was in this movie was one of the characters looked like the blond headed and curly hair lead in the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures not K. Reeves but the other guy who is Alex Winter. This movie that I am wondering about is about 2 teenagers in deep trouble with the law, they are arrested and tried. I think that the 2 are involved in a murder? What little I remember is one o
  6. DougieB-Robert Wagner wrote in his autobiography that he suggested Judy Garland for the Momma Rosa role to one of the Warner boys who chewed him out for mentioning it and would not consider it at all. I agree totally with you about Valley of the Dolls she dodged a bullet there but maybe, maybe if she had done it her life would have taken a different spin than the one it was on. Sort of like Elvis Presley if he had starred with Barbara Streisand in A Star is Born... it could have led to other roles better projects for the both of them.I LOVE Barbara Hutton in Annie Get Your Gun but I would have
  7. See I was going to post Warren Beaty and Annette Benning no chemistry on screen but definitely off screen which is opposite of your original post. Bruce Willis and Cybil Sheppard comes to mind but that is TV.....have to think about this one.....
  8. Psycho is a horror flick with humor. I appreciate the work Hitch put into this and all his movies. Now I have to tell you my kids watch the modern day slasher flicks and suspense flicks and the movies with magic, special effects and gross scenes BUT they will NOT watch Psycho again after we watched it on VHS one time. No way, no how it was to much for them and they are 19 and 20 now and we watched it about 2 to 3 years ago.
  9. I like this movie though it to me is a guilty pleasure. There are some moments that are so fake, so unlikely, to predictable, but I like it anyway. One thing that stood out to me is the singing of Portier or not him anyway and not even close to the speaking voice of the actor. Then the shaking of Gable's hand when he draws a pistol and holds it on someone in one scene( which I'm not complaining about-it just caught my eye) this time I noticed when the wind kicks up and Manty can't close her windows and Hamish comes in to save her. Yavonne De carlo (Manty) is knocked to the floor trying to clos
  10. I for one for lack of a better of way of putting it look forward to TCMs short tribute to a fallen star. I wonder when I can catch it. I also wonder which day they will give to the star and which films they will show. Then I wonder sometimes well that one again or yeah that one I'm glad to see it again. Also when I see that someone has died I wonder if they did a tribute to them like I just recently learned that Betty Garrett died. I wonder if they did a tribute for her? If they didn't then I wonder why? Because TCM has started out doing this? I think it is a fine tradition. Sorry about you fe
  11. Thank you guys for the info. I just loved it. I can still hear the scenes Preston does. He has lines with William Holden...Preston says to Holden's character-Marry me and Holden's says "I would only cheat on you" and Preston says "it's not cheating if you don't tell anyone'. Robert Preston to me just looked like he was enjoying himself, having a grand old time with his role.
  12. Because I gave my 2 cents in another forum it brings to mind something Sophia Loren wrote in her book about Marilyn Monroe. She wished that Marilyn had found her "Carlo Ponti" a father figure to guide her and help her but she didn't. Furthermore, I myself wonder how Marilyn would have been if she had had a child of her own. I like to think she would have found substance, happiness and life.
  13. I have 10 on my list but I put it on after I read Dudley Moore's autobiography. Maybe I'll move it up when I add Victor/Victoria. Rosanna Arquette was listed on the Netflix envelope but I didn't realize how small the role was and almost didn't recognized her till she spoke. I like how the girls William Holden picks up changes his radio station when he gets out of the car. I wondered if they would but seeing it done just tickled me. However, I did like the music that Holden was listening to Sinatra and big band music. Plus, I thought was Richard Mulligan going to just stumble throughout that mo
  14. Speaking of roles or different roles how about Debbie Reynolds as Grace's mom on Will and Grace? I know, I know, that shows is so off the air but I only discovered it when it started airing on Lifetime some years back.
