  1. I never noticed it before, but you're right; Chase and McKimson do resemble each other. I love McKimson's films, especially from 1948 to 1954. Some of the best Bugs Bunny cartoons from this era were McKimson's --- Hot Cross Bunny, A Lad in His Lamp (both 1948); Rebel Rabbit, The Windblown Hare, The Greyhounded Hare (all 1949); What's Up, Doc?, Hillbilly Hare, Bushy Hare (all 1950); French Rarebit, Hare We Go, Big Top Bunny (all 1951); Oily Hare and Rabbit's Kin (both 1952). Plus, he gave us Foghorn Leghorn, the Tasmanian Devil, Hippety Hopper, and Pete Puma! I love Chuck Jones's take o
  2. No, not her. Another actress, Erin O'Brien-Moore (1902-1979), was in Destination Moon (1950).

  5. Three Cult of the Cobra cast members are still with us: William Reynolds, age 89, who plays Pete, the cobra woman's final victim; Kathleen Hughes, age 92, who plays the love interest of both Paul & Tom; Myrna Hansen, age 86, who plays party girl Marian.
  6. Josie Lloyd, Norman's daughter who passed away just last year, is familiar to classic TV fans from her 4 appearances on The Andy Griffith Show --- twice as Mayor Pike's daughter Juanita/Josephine and twice as Lydia Crosswaithe, the worst blind date in Mayberry.
  7. In the scene where the Kanes take dozens of their guests on a "picnic" to the Everglades, Kane and wife Susan are arguing inside their tent. Their argument turns violent, and after Kane slaps Susan, we hear a woman screaming, presumably from outside the tent. And the jazz band has stopped playing. Did Welles ever explain these screams? Are they supposed to be psychological screams coming from inside Susan's thoughts?
  8. . . . and then there was one. Jacques d'Amboise's passing leaves Russ Tamblyn as the last surviving Pontipee brother from MGM's Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954), although four of the "brides" are still with us --- Jane Powell, Julie Newmar (Newmeyer), Ruta Lee (Kilmonis), and Nancy Kilgas.
  9. Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) starts off with two very atmospheric murders by lycanthrope Larry Talbot. We also get the greatest man-to-wolf transformation scene ever filmed by Universal (inside the Cardiff hospital). Lon Chaney, Jr.'s performance early in the film is very engrossing, but by the time he meets up with Bela Lugosi's Frankenstein monster, the film begins to fizzle. He meets Dr. Frankenstein's granddaughter, is pursued by an English doctor, and sits through a lavish (for Universal) musical production number, blah, blah, blah. Not until the very end, when the 2 monster
  10. Actor James Hampton has died at age 84. He appeared in films as diverse as The Longest Yard (1974), W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings (1975), Hawmps! (1976), Disney's The Cat From Outer Space (1978), The China Syndrome (1979), Teen Wolf (1985), Pump Up the Volume (1990), and Sling Blade (1996). He also starred in TV's F Troop (1965-1967).

  11. Curly Howard died at age 48 of a stroke/brain hemorrhage in 1952. He is believed to have suffered the first of several strokes in late 1944/early 1945, while he was still a member of The Three Stooges. In his last films, his deteriorating health is sadly evident onscreen, as his performances became more and more sluggish. He suffered a debilitating stroke on the set of 1947's Half-Wits Holiday and was forced to retire from the group. He spent the last years of his life in and out of hospitals and nursing homes. He didn't live long enough to see the Stooges' resurgence in popularity in
  12. So, I'm guessing a 75th anniversary tribute to The Jolson Story is out of the question.
  13. Road to Rio 1947 Beau James 1957 The Five Pennies 1959
  14. One of the stars of The Shadow of the Cat passed away just a couple of months ago. Barbara Shelley died in London at age 88 on Jan. 3, 2021.
