  1. Drat. Danny Elfman is already taken. Kudos LawrenceA. But I can add: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Social Network 2010 Academy Award and Golden Globe Winner Gone Girl 2011 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 2014 Patriots Day 2016
  2. I wouldn't subject myself to Finian's Rainbow and wasn't particularly interested in the other primetime fare. But I did watch RETURN TO GLENNASCAUL. A nice, tidy Irish ghost story made even better with the presence of Orson Welles and very Wellesian direction and cinematography. Hey! I'm not a newbie anymore but a full-fledged member now! ?
  3. I love nothing better than a samurai movie but seriously ... slow. btw hard to choose but my favorite samurai movie is RAN "Like Kurasawa, I make mad films, okay, I don't make films But if I did they'd have a Samurai" - BareNaked Ladies
  4. Can't wait to see Black Panther, still playing in IMAX here, but alas I am currently under the weather. I love a good SciFi/Fantasy genre on the big screen. Marvel makes great films. DC not so much but Wonder Woman was very good
  5. TikiSoo. Thank you for all your recent replies here. On this page alone I received a great history lesson and backstories on some of my favorite dancers. I discovered Eleanor Powell much later than the other royalty of tap from the 30s and 40s and immediately wondered why I hadn't really heard that much about her before. I think I first saw her when I watched THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT on our beloved TCM. Maybe because she wasn't as strong an actor as many of the other dancers and don't think I ever heard her sing but wow! That dancing! So I went after her films like a heat seeking missile. As
  6. If only I were as cool and classy as Ms. Lupino ... but I do identify with her and find her an inspiration
  7. One of my top 5 cowboy movies (ahem, pardon me) Westerns is "Red River". Montgomery Clift is so slight and understated compared to big, blustering John Wayne but steals every scene he is in. This movie had to be filmed outdoors just to make room for all that immense, quiet charisma. And (pardon me, again) he exudes sexiness from every pore. His natural acting style must have been quite a revelation in 1948.
  8. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 77. Hoping now he Knows Everything instead of just the Theory.
  9. Thanks for posting this radio play. Perfect to while away a half hour during one of my bouts of insomnia. "The Black Cat", brought to you by Camel cigarettes. Slogan: "I'd walk a mile for a Camel. If it weren't for this dratted COPD". The only cigarette that goes in my holder. Except those funny ones. https://poestories.com/read/blackcat I love Peter Lorre too. But I'm sure we're part of a vast majority. He was so excellently creepy in Stranger on the Third Floor. He grabbed every scene he was in by the throat and wouldn't let go.
  10. I'm glad Noir Alley is now on Saturday nights. I felt funny sipping a single malt on Sunday at 7 in the morning. I love Ben but Eddie needs to host this. After all he is our Czar of Noir and Saturday late night should be his natural habitat. btw my first post
