  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://h

  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'
  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 s
  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 Vero
  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.
