  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. "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!

  3. 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 MacRae in Look For The Silver Lining

    Time On My Hands- Gordon MacRae, June Haver in Look For The Silver Lining

     

    And that's about it for my favourites, *sigh* wonderful melodies to your ears that's for sure!

  4. 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!:)

  5. 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 of something they dislike about themselves: They pretend they are someone else." --actress Bette Davis

     

    "To be a success and to be happy." --actor Gordon MacRae's ambition

     

     

    All done for now;)

  6. 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, love, hatred, life or death. Don't you see that's the whole excuse for our existence? It's what makes the whole thing possible and tolerable."

     

    "This is the end for which we twain are met."

     

     

    Romeo and Juliet

     

    "Parting is such sweet sarrow, that I shall say good night, till it be morrow."

     

     

    The Gay Divorcee

     

    Mimi: I don't care what you did as a boy.

    Guy: Well I did nothing as a girl so there goes my childhood!

     

    Mimi: Please don't ask me to stay.

    Guy: All right I wont. Don't go!

     

    "Chance is a fools name for fate!"

     

    "Can I offer you anything? Frosted chocolate? Cointreau? Benedictine? Marriage?"

     

    "Pining? Men don't pine. Girls pine. Men just... suffer."

     

    "You're wife is save with Tonetti, He prefers spaghetti "

     

     

    Okay, I'll be gone for now, I don't think I'll ever be able to get away from this thread though!:)
