  1. Body Double is her film i liked the most as she was part of the film and not a star yet. Unfortunately i can't really say i like her childish voice, never liked it,she inherited it from her mother Tippi Hedren ,it sounds a little like her,I watched Night Moves last week and the print was corrected,i watched it on tv many years ago and you could see a big boom microphone following every word the 2 actors were saying ,i remember it was in a small room in the movie, Griffith was having an affair with Warren Beatty while she was in the movie or just before, she was 15 or 16!!
  2. The Southerner . He displayed his range,Zachary Scott gave a great performance,beautiful film.
  3. Yikes ! not first run thank god ,Iwatched it on tv many years ago,terrible and entirely filmed in Montreal in January before climate changes.So it was very cold.
  4. Gable knew about Judy Lewis for sure but a son was important for him and Gable did not need to rape any woman. He was the Brad Pitt of his era. Women were throwing themselves at him,he prefered waitresses and secretaries by the way. He had an on-off sexual relationship with Crawford for about 10 years,no he did not need to rape Loretta Young.. About Mitchum I do not know the $50 thing Eddie was talking about but i have read in a few books when Loretta Young was explaining the 'rates' for the fines in the jar Mitchum yelled to her 'how much do you charge for a F$$$$ ?! I guess Eddie censor

  7. The really rotten movies started with Kissin' Cousins in 1964. King Creole,Flaming Star,Follow that dream(-i have seen it as very young kidin 62 or63 at a matinée) were the ones i think were standing out,Loving You has a good cast with Lizabeth Scott. In a way Lennon was right :Elvis died in the army...

  10. Check the PBS stations in your area several of them are showing the new remastered version, it is like 20 hours total but worth every minute of it,a classic as great as The Civil War.
  11. The owner Charles Comiskey was a very mean and greedy man,the White Sox were the Black Sox before the scandal.Comiskey decided to charge the players for the cleaning of their uniforms,the players decided to play with a dirty uniforms for a long time earning the knickname Black Sox , Comiskey finally conceded but screwed the players by charging them back the fees and deducting from their earnings bonus of the World Series of 1917.Severalplayers did not asked for their bribe money in advance, i have seen the film many years ago.Y ou should watch the Baseball documentary by Ken Burns.

  15. Bette Davis suffered so much in her early days,no wonder she dished dirt on everybody when she was on top. At Universal Pictures, she was dismissed , for lack of sex appeal. “I can’t imagine any guy giving her a tumble,” pronounced Carl (“Junior”) Laemmle, 23-year-old Hollywood producer. MichaelCurtiz said she was sexless..-when producer Darryl F. Zanuck urged Michael Curtiz to cast Bette Davis as Madge Norwood, the director responded, "Are you kidding?
