  1. Did anyone mention Liam Dunn as the judge in What's Up, Doc? He's hilarious.
  2. I've noted this in most of the new films.... It's a MUD spectrum of grays and browns with all the real color desaturated. They might as well just film in B&W. I love B&W because of the crisp image but these mud films are just plain BORING to look at. If I want to see mud, I can wait til spring and look out a window.
  3. The website continues to plunge. Took a solid week into the new month to update the Silent Sunday page (a photo and links to the already existing film notes pages). Two of the films have three links each to the same page. How hard is it to change the photo and add links? The text on the page is mostly about Stewart and does not change from month to month. Last month, the link to one of the four films listed didn't even work!. Anyone with basic computer skills could do this maintenance. Just sayin' ...
  4. RIP Some of my all-time favorite films THE LAST PICTURE SHOW WHAT'S UP DOC PAPER MOON
  5. Love Kay Francis .... but why is she STOM again?
  6. Maintenance/Updates gets slower and slower..... Silent Sunday night page still not updated from December.
  7. Wonder if TCM will edit its "in memoriam" video to include this legend .... yes she made a few films
  8. The last of the GOLDEN GIRLS......
  9. That said, I was surprised not to have so much of a problem with Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance or J.K. Simmons as William Frawley. They captured the spirit of the originals. Even Javier Bardem at least captured the spirit of Desi Arnaz although he didn't look anything like him and apparently didn't even try. Kidman wore the Lucy drag but her plastic surgery made it impossible to emulate Lucille Ball's famous facial expressions (and didn't bother to try). She came across more like Joan Crawford or Bette Davis (and I love them both) in Lucy drag but playing the ****y versions of themselves
  10. Kidman is to Ball as Zellweger is to Garland. Two astonishingly bad impersonations in weak biopics, but don't be surprised if Kidman also wins an Oscar.
  11. also very good was Udo Kier's SWAN SONG as opposed to the Mahershala Ali SWAN SONG, which I thought sucked. and I liked LAST NIGHT IN SOHO because it was full of surprises.
  12. THE GREEN KNIGHT was very interesting as was THE LAST DUEL.....
  13. I'd have to go with THE POWER OF THE DOG
  14. I'm not sure Lucy comes off as being very likable. Yes she had to be tough to survive but so did a lot of other actresses. Yes we know Lucille Ball was not Lucy Ricardo, but I think the film paints her as a rather dark and obsessive woman. It's probably fairly true, but the average Lucy fan might be a tad shocked or disappointed.
  15. As I said, there are several swipes takes at Judy Holliday. Whether the swipes are based on Ball or Sorkin's dislike of her ..... who knows?
  16. MARION DAVIES in LITTLE OLD NEW YORK (1923) Silent Sunday Dec. 26.
  17. I was waiting to see if they repeated the claim (by Lucy herself in a book) that she had been in TILLIE THE TOILER with Marion Davies in 1927. Ball named Davies as a comedy inspiration (along with Carole Lombard). But they did not. The film vaguely mentions Ball's arrival in Hollywood as "ten years ago" and indeed Ball first hit the screens in 1933 as a chorus girl ... with bleached platinum hair.
  18. REMINDER Still on the Silent Sunday schedule for Dec. 26.
  19. Lana Turner would have been a DISASTER
