  1. The wonderful Wendy Hiller and the irascible Rex Harrison in Shaw's Major Barbara.
  2. Do you mean Stuart Damon (years on General Hospital) from Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella?
  3. Peter Ibbetson (and I know that's not spelled correctly).
  4. Joan Fontaine took over when Deborah Kerr left "Tea and Sympathy" on Broadway - was that a problem? (Deborah originated the role and got rave reviews - and later did the movie).
  5. Polly Parrish - Ginger in Bachelor Mother and Debbie in Bundle of Joy.
  6. I read your essay and enjoyed it very much. I also read a great deal more on the site - which I would never have known about if you had not put in in the Forum. Thanks a lot - I enjoyed many of the essays. But I kept thinking, "Who wrote this?" Who is the man in the picture in My Day at TCM - is that you? Who are the "we" you speak about? I think it would be interesting to hear about some of the greats who made their initial screen appearance in abysmal movies - movies which nobody has ever heard of or which disappeared from sight immediately. About the essay, The Blonde Bombshel
  7. Andrew Lloyd Webber used the line again in his musical version of Sunset Boulevard - the song is called The Lady's Paying and is sung by the salesclerks while trying to sell Joe a suit (vicuna) for New Year's eve.
  8. Yes, I liked Fool's Parade very much, but haven't seen it in years. But . . . the book by Davis Grubb is even better (he also wrote Night of the Hunter, made into an excellent black and white movie with Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lilian Gish - directed by Charles Laughton. Don't fall for the mess that Richard Chamberlin made for TV a few years ago). What's a malamutegirl?
  9. It's Kundun - directed by Martin Scorsese (written by Melissa Mathison, Harrison Ford's ex-wife). I loved it!
  10. i too saw the list - 2 actors, 2 singers and a dancer. what is the purpose of the kennedy center awards? is it just to honor performers? don't i remember tennessee williams being honored some years ago? and agnes de mille, choreographer? well, i suppose i can't quibble with their choices, but their must be a writer, composer, choreographer, musician - what have you - out there somewhere crying foul. i'd sure include julie harris and suzanne farrell, but the others? well, maybe. or maybe i don't know enough about who has previously been honored. is it that they have already honored
  11. I think you're right - she never played anyone other than herself (probably why she was box-office poison for so long). But she did try - particularly on stage, and I think she was much better as she got a little older. Some of her early movies are just unwatchable. Of course she was unconventional and self-absorbed; she could afford to be - she was born rich, married rich, and stayed rich. That makes it much easier to be demanding and outspoken.
  12. i know it's mongo - i must have been thinking of mondo cane. sorry.
