  1. Well, I missed the 'drama' (****. as in 'dramamine') but it was fun to be reminded of this old Twilight Zone' episode. "O, thats REAL good, Billy, its a REAL good thing you turned Joe into a Jack in the Box! Shivers! The mind of Rod Serling and the other writers on that show unbelievable imaginations!
  2. Girl, I'm going to have to start calling you, 'Queen of Thinking Up Cool Thread Topics"! wow. I once saw a private screening of a 1975 made-for- British TV biopic called, "The Naked Civil Servant", which starred John Hurt playing a person called Quentin Crisp. Londoner Crisp was one of the 'original out' homosexuals of the 30's & 40's who, though beaten mercilessly on countless occasions, basically refused to hide who and what he was, going about in public dressed as a woman, dressing and behaving and speaking as flamboyantly and effeminately in public, for the most part, just a
  3. Guys, Gina Trikonis is very findable on IMDb. She was born in 1939, but seems to have given up acting for Costume & Wardrobe, where she seems also to have done really well. I saw no credit for 'Cry Baby'. Kim McGuire is also there, but no DOB, altho her film and TV credits - acting - are listed, but nothing before the 90's, I don't think.
  4. For flannel shirt - *The Trouble With Harry* nw: still, racetrack
  5. For 'lobster trap', *Mystic Pizza* nw: racetrack She *THROWED* it?!! Ok, *Somebody* dropped a vase in shock or anger in *some* movie! I just *know* it! (winky emoticon)
  6. What an *incredible* idea for a thread!! Props to you, Gerogie, and btw, your name is one of my very fave films of all time!! ALSO, btw, I'll be over with lulu and the rest, we can ALL bring our wonderful stuff, put it in a huge pile in the center of the room and just go to town, amidst all our 'oohs' and 'ahs'!! We'll then have to model our outfits. Maybe we girls can try and think of three actors - pre 1980, lets say - who we'd like to be in the 'audience'. for that! I'll take Gregory Peck,Alan Bates and the pre-code Wallace Ford, who got the pleasure of seeing Harlow dance eroti
  7. ham, thats a good one. I thought the poster was just 'signing' his/her name, ' but 'ding' is as good a new word as any. I just don't understand *Ox Bow Incident*, for 'disco'. but maybe I missed that part of the film;) Also, I 'm surprised nobody has corrected me. It wasn't a vase, Fraulein Rottenmeier dropped. It was the beautiful snowstorm, which was, unless I am wrong yet again, Clara's gift to Heidi, to remind her of her Alpine home with the Grandfather..
  8. Of course, I don't know your taste in films, what genres & eras are your thing and all, but even if I were not a fan of early 70's suspense (my mom turned me onto these drama, being a huge fan of the early made-for-TV movies, which I understand, launched in the late 60's, early 70s that she loved to watch as a kid. That was back in the day where you had ONE big color family TV in the 'den', family, or living room, and everyone watched what DAD wanted to watch!) Maybe *Nightmare Honeymoon* was one of those, I can't recall if there was any TV-forbidden language. But as I say, even if
  9. Thank you, Helen, I know - when do we leave?! We'd better start packing - April is just around the corner! Thanks also for reminding me about that Oldman/Molina film about the relationship of Joe Orten and Kenneth Halliwell, 1986's *Prick Up Your Ears*. Both Oldman and Molina were wonderful in that, although I saw it so long ago, I don't remember much about it. BTW, Oldman is ANOTHER crazy- vesatile actor - did you ever see *Hannibal", I think it is - the one with Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore as Clarice Starling? Oldman plays one of the most disturbed serial killer characters ev
  10. Vase - Heidi (Doesn't Fraulein Rottenmeir drop one when she sees that Heidi has taught Clara to walk?) nw: gypsy wagon (I can think of 3 off the bat!)
  11. Yes, I saw Detour, and most of the 2 after that. Not as many as I would have liked, believe me! My best bet these days is if I wake up super early, and watch whats on at 4 and sometimes at 6am. Last night (rather, this morning!) I wanted badly to watch 'Nightmare Honeymoon' - not that the synopses were in affect until mid way through the film. I woke about 35 minutes into the film - but the action I had missed, while very important, was talked about almost exclusively - so I could tell the deal pretty much right away. It was a movie from 1973, and I only hope they plan to repeat it
  12. Mob burial - 99 and 44/100 Percent Dead!! nw: gas station
