  1. RIP Glenn Some of my favorite performances by him are Blackboard Jungle, 3:10 to Yuma, Midway, but my fave is Gilda. He and Rita were awesome in that classic, and in tribute to them both I present for you all some nice pics of them. Click on the links to see the pics: Johnny and Gilda(Glenn and Rita-1946) I would have the same look as Glenn if I was holding Rita that close too! http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda5.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda1.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda4.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda6.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda7.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gilda8.jpg "Put the blame on Mame, boys"......

  3. Gene Tierney tops the list for me. Others would be Linda Darnell, Hedy Lamarr
  4. Love all 3 of these beauties. Just picked up some more Noir films with Gene and Linda. Just watched Fallen Angel with Linda, Alice Faye and Dana Andrews, pretty cool flick! I will say it again, Gene Tierney was the most beautiful woman of classic Hollywood, hands down. I think she beats even Hedy Lamarr in beauty.
  5. Ahh.... Myrna Myrna Myrna.... Probably my favorite actress of all time, hands down. I will watch any movie with her in it, just love her!
  6. Well, there were so many beauties, but I'd have to say in terms of pure beauty, probably no one could top Gene Tierney in that department. I'd have to say that Hedy Lamarr and Gene Tierney were the most beautiful women to ever appear on screen.
  7. lzcutter, Thanks again for all the info, I appreciate it!
  8. How about Olivia de Havilland? I think she turned 90 last year.
  9. Fascinating stuff for sure, thanks for your insight. Yeah, I do realize that a lot of the old films may not have survived the years well, and obviously some did not survive at all. It's a shame too, but thankfully quite a few did survive, and in some instances, like you mentioned, they were able to restore cut footage. I know restoration is expensive too. I love the book by Mark Viera called Sin In Soft Focus, got a used copy off of Amazon, so many great pre-codes and a great book for info. Can anyone here explain a bit more of the current legalities right now as far as film libraries? I'm guessing Paramount owns their pre-codes and did they also buy Columbia's or Universals? I'd like to know more about that kind of stuff, I'm guessing TCM does not have the rights to show certain movies, just wondering what they don't have access too. Looks like the MGM, Warner Bros and RKO stuff is ok obviously. Would appreciate more info on this subject if someone knows, thanks! I certainly wouldn't mind donating money to have old movies preserved and restored, as long as I know all my money is actually going towards that, and there are no shall we say, detours!
  10. Getting in late on his thread. Well, the only thing I can say is, I understand some movies from th 70's 80's and 90's may be considered classics by some, which is fine. But to be honest, the point that most of those movies can be seen easily on other channels is a good one, and personally I would rather see TCM adding more true classic movies to their library for us to see, rather than showing the more modern stuff. There are still some good movies out there TCM probably hasn't shown or hasn't shown in a long time, some interesting pre-codes they may not have shown either. I guess the 2 studios' movies they can't get the rights to are Paramount and Columbia? or is it Universal? Not sure, maybe you folks can help me out with all the legal stuff . It would be nice to see if TCM can add more vintage classics to their library, if possible, and show those rather than the more modern stuff is my point. That's just my opinion, and my interest in movies is pretty much only the 30's-early 60's, though occasionaly I will watch a smaller or sleeper hit Hollywood puts out today. Diane Lane makes good movies, and I've always liked her.
  11. Hi, thanks for the replies. yes, I am storing them in optimal conditions, I have a friend who has been a collector for years and has built quite a collection. He gave me tips and advice on proper storage. As well as storage, the climate control of the room is important, such as keeping humidity at the proper level. But I've been lucky so far, the major pieces I have are in super condition, these were obviously well cared for, which is not always the case. You have to be careful what you get, and research the item thoroughly too, before acquiring.
  12. Hi all, haven't posted in awhile, good to be back! Very quickly, my dad(who just turned 80 this past October) was in the Navy from 43'-45', based in San Diego before shipping out and being wounded from a japanese attack on his ship and spending 6 months in the Naval Hospital there. Before that happened, he used to go to Hollywood a lot when he had leave, and spent many a time at the Hollywood Canteen and other places. At the Canteen he met Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck(got to dance with her!) Anne Shirley(danced with her too), and Jimmy Durante, John Garfield and a few others. He also met Veronica Lake and Virginia Mayo during studio tours given to servicemen. Watch the movie Pride Of The Marines with John Garfield, and you'll see a sailor come out onto a balcony on crutches, that's my dad! They were filming at the Naval Hospital at the time, he got into the scene by acident in the background. Anyways, he got me interested in classic Hollywood movies years ago and I never looked back, my favorites are from the 30'-50's. I started collecting old Hollywood wardrobe and other stuff from classic movies in the past year and just added a few new pieces, which you can see below by clicking on the links. Brief description and then the links, hope you'll enjoy! First up we have Gloria Swanson's "Sunset Blvd." Evening Gown. You can see it in the scene when she comes into Joe's room while he is asleep and finds the script he has been working on with Betty. ``Oh. Joe..Joe..where were you..?'' This gown is in great condition. http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/swansongown.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/swanson1.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/swanson2.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/swanson-tag.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/sunset.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/sunset2.jpg Next up we have a costume worn by actress Jean Simmons in the 1960 classic, Elmer Gantry, co-starring Burt Lancaster. She wears this costume in over half the movie, in various scenes, and the screen captures show it great. This is a wonderful movie if anyone gets a chance, watch it, it's out on DVD now too. Burt Lancaster earned his only Oscar as the wide-smiling, glad-handing, soul-saving charlatan title character in "Elmer Gantry," a salesman who turns his gift for preaching into a career at the pulpit. Joining was Jean Simmons as his evangelist love interest, Sharon Falconer, this gown is in superb condition. http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/simmonsrobe.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/simmons.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/simmons2.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/simmons-tag.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry2.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry3.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry4.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry5.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry6.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry7.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/gantry8.jpg Next up we have a period piece worn by actress Nancy Coleman in the 1946 film Devotion, in her role as Anne Bronte. This movie co-starred Ida Lupino as Emily Bronte and Olivia de Havilland as Charlotte Bronte, and also starred Sydney Greenstreet. http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/coleman.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/coleman-tag.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/coleman-tag2.jpg Last we have the costume worn by actress Anne Shirley in the 1940 drama "Vigil in the Night", co-starring Carole Lombard. http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/shirley.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~macca67/shirley-tag.jpg
  13. Being a guy, I would say my heart goes to Myrna Loy, and Jean Harlow. 2 of my faves of all time!
  14. I'd like to see that one too, never seen it actually. Another great Colbert one I can recommend is Torch Singer, from the early 30's. Great movie and performance by her, I have it on tape.
  15. I liked her as an actress, I have several of her pre-code movies on video, and also The Women on DVD. Really liked her also in the Barrets Of Wimpole Street. I never found her to be very attractive though, just not my type.
