  1. It sounds a lot like Sundown, with Bruce Cabot as the calm officer and Gene Tierney, Joseph Calleia and Harry Carey, Sr. as the civilians.
  2. Ellen Drew had a terrific smile! As for my other favorites... Actors Joel McCrea Dana Andrews Donald O'Connor Fred Astaire Red Skelton Jimmy Stewart Actresses Frances Dee Celeste Holm Laraine Day Dorothy Lamour Louise Beavers Marjorie Reynolds
  3. The only thing I can think of to do is write c/o his publisher. - Susan
  4. Easter Parade - 1948, starring Judy, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller and Peter Lawford. I just watched this one last night! - Susan
  5. The "mushroom" idea is really a good one (that's how I started!), but just in case you would like something on paper, try Hollywood Picks the Classics by Afton Fraser. It's really a wonderful book, and will give you plenty of places to start. - Susan
  6. Dear ellejenkins3, My goodness, you modeled the dress? What an opportunity! If my guess is correct, you are referring to a gown that never made it onto the big screen. Designed by Helen Rose (as you stated), it was to have been worn by Judy Garland in Royal Wedding. Before filming began Judy was replaced by Jane Powell and the dress was put into storage. In her book Just Make Them Beautiful, Helen Rose described it as "... a very sophisticated costume... and Judy was delighted when she saw it. The bodice was of black jersey with a turtle neck and long sleeves, completely covered w
  7. Could anyone tell be about June Moon, please? I am an avid fan of Frances Dee, and run a website in tribute to her. This film is high on my "to see" list, but unfortunately I can't make it to the Film Forum. I would love to hear second-hand accounts from those fortunate enough to attend. Thanks! - Susan
  8. Oh, thank you so much to everyone who has posted on this thread! I think I will give Ladd's Great Gatsby a try. - Susan
  9. I'll Be Seeing You -- oh, it's a lovely movie! Starring are Ginger Rogers as the "woman with a past", and Joseph Cotten as the shell-shocked aviator. Shirley Temple and Spring Byington give wonderful supporting performances. I always cry with this one. It was released on DVD last year, thank goodness.
  10. The Great Gatsby -- I'm afraid I've never read the book, nor have I seen any of the film adaptations, but I'm very curious to learn about the 1949 version starring Alan Ladd. Can anyone tell me about it? Thanks! - Susan
  11. Deborah, Thank you so much for writing about Rich Man's Folly -- it sounds wonderful! May I use your summary and comments on my website? Hoping your day is lovely! - Susan
  12. I like the quote that has been posted at Moviediva.com: "Giants like these (Independence Day, Godzilla, Pearl Harbor, the 2nd and 3rd Matrix movies) continue to stalk through the multiplexes, shaking gold from the heavens with their thunderous, THX Certified footsteps; but inside their high-definition, digitized craniums their tiny brains are dead." --Louis Menand on the state of the cinema blockbuster in the February 7, 2005 New Yorker.
  13. Is there any chance of The Blue Dahlia being released on DVD as well? And Saigon? Wouldn't it be lovely if someone would release a Ladd & Lake box set...
  14. Frances Dee and Joel McCrea Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire Myrna Loy and William Powell
  15. Oh, Deborah, thank you so much for these stories! What was the I Love Lucy connection? I know Frances was mentioned in "The Fashion Show" and was always curious if there were more to the story. - Susan
