  1. Of Human Bondage -Definitely her greatest performance, in my opinion. She was one of those characters that you hate but love at the same time and feel sorry for! Dark Victory -Such a sad and tragic story. To think that things like that happen often in real life as well. The Petrified Forest -All time favourite film but she was so sweet and wonderful and the character is just me! The Great Lie -She was just so different and entertaining to watch in this one and for some reason I adore it.
  2. Well actually my favourite version is the Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones version, nobody can sing it as wonderful as them. In my own humble opinion mind you:) ~Emily (okay let's just call me Eliza now;) ...)
  3. "I love that line. What is cointreau?" I'm not quite sure what cointreau is but, I'll look it up and let you know:) "You musn't ride alone at night." "I'll bet you say that to all the men you marry." Those two together were so wonderful!
  4. Oh wow! Thanks for that little information, I'll have to get that DVD and CD sometime! ~Emily aka Eliza
  5. I think my all time favourite song from a film is If I Loved You from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel in 1956. Here's my whole list though of absolute favourites! Night and Day- Fred Astaire in The Gay Divorcee People Will Say We're In Love- Gordon MacRae, Shirley Jones in Oklahoma! You Were Meant For Me- Gene Kelly in Singin' In The Rain The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing- Danny Kaye in White Christmas Main Street- Gene Kelly in On The Town Almost Like Being In Love- Gene Kelly in Brigadoon Waitin' For m'Dearie- Cyd Charisse in Brigadoon A Kiss In The Dark- Gordon MacRa
  6. Rodgers and Hammerstein are brilliant! I think my list would go like this... Carousel Oklahoma! State Fair The Sound of Music South Pacific The King and I Carousel is definitely my first favourite though, the music is most thrilling and enchanting! Though I do adore all of R&H's other work as well, such wonderful men. I fall apart for them like I fall apart for Gordon MacRae or Leslie Howard! ~Emily aka Eliza
  7. I think this is my all time favourite quote spoken by an actor/actress! "Leslie Howard was a darling flirt. He'd be caressing your eyes and have his hand on someone else's leg at the same time. He was adorable." --actress Joan Blondell. "The musicals had a good, happy feeling, saying that the world is a better place. They say it's not reality, but who cares? There's too much reality these days." --actress Shirley Jones "Let's see what happens when I pull the fire alarm....." --actress Shirley Jones (not certain if this was already posted) "People often become actresses because
  8. I think my all time favourite line might be from the film Pygmalion, "Where the devil are my slippers, Eliza?" It's not only one of my favourite lines, but also my favourite ending shot in a film! I'll just post the rest of my favourites that I can think of, below:) Carousel "Longin' to tell you, but afraid and shy. I let my golden chances pass me by." "I loved you Julie, know that I loved you." The Petrified Forest "Oh, I'm eternally right, but what good does it do me?" "Any woman's worth everything that any man has to give: anguish, ecstasy, faith, jealousy
