  1. Becky Sharp 1935 directed by Rouben Mamoulian With Miriam Hopkins Frances Dee Nigel Bruce Billie Burke Cedric Hardwicke Alan Mowbray.Made by Pioneer Pictures distributed by RKO.Set in early 1800's England during the Napoleonic wars good comedy drama main feature are the beautiful pastels as it is the first film made in 3 strip Technicolor. Frances Dee in Technicolor is quite something but Alan Mowbray as a romantic interest is quite unusual i have seen him in many films but not in this type of role..anyway I have never seen this film on TCM and it was not featured on her Star of
  2. Carnival Story was a premiere several months ago. So you are right!
  3. A thread should be done on Hemingway the Ken Burns documentary was very good as usual.I was a bit disappointed that it all ended with a bang....more info on the family or on his exes would have been interesting.His son Gregory got operated to become a woman in 1995 and everything got complicated. Mary Welsh was the best looking wife of the 4 imo.She had a firm trim body all her life,i find her very attractive and sexy.Hemingway should have considered himself very lucky to have such a quality woman as a wife.He was too drunk most of the time to appreciate her i guess..Hemingway pursued Slim Kei

  6. The Long Dark Hall 1951 directed by Reginald Beck & Anthony Bushell. with Rex Harrison Lilli Palmer Anthony Dawson .Screenplay by Nunnally Johnson,.A crime drama developped by Universal for Eddie Robinson then it was sold to a UK producer.An ok movie but what is quite surprising is the subject : an unfaithful husband is the last person to have seen his murdered mistress.On the heels of Carole Landis's suicide....in 1948.Palmer was married to Rex in real life she also went to the funeral with Harrison.Just before Harrison had made only 1 film Unfaithfully Yours with Preston Sturges and it

  12. I do not know if they will be elected . Here are my choices: Carole King as a composer writer Kate Bush would be a long shot:she never toured and had a relative success in the USA but she is a worthwhile artist.Todd Rundgren is a good composer and a very good producer,since 1968.Iron Maiden should be inducted,formed in 1976,recording since 1980.Extremely influential band (Metallica among many others) they still have incredible success worldwide i.e. selling out soccer stadiums until the pandemic hit the world. Steve Harris the bass player and founding member is a very big influence on
