  1. Lucky you,2 of my favorites, beautywise,i have no interest in the current leading ladies not a question of age simply they do not 'dégage' as the 'old' leading ladies imo. As for your diner near CC she was filming up north and in Montreal with Lino Ventura in one of his last films,she came to the festival I think 5-6 years later for a movie she was in and directed by her boyfriend the movie got several prizes.I did not try to see her as i sweared to myself not to attend any Italian female movie star since Sophia Loren made or actually planned an appearance in a major big store and it got cancelled because of almost 'riot conditions'...My sister met Robert De Niro during the same filming you mention,she said he was a gentleman and respectful-my sister had incredible looks-and he did not play the usual casanova stuff,they shared a few drinks that's all.I did not had such a luck with a movie star,in the music business I have met rock stars galore,but in my days the 2 biz were not together very much.the closest I can remember is seeing Peter Boyle while I was going out from the Roxy in LA!!! The most striking woman or celebrity I have ever seen was Bianca Jagger in 1976 I was 20 years old,my summer job was working at the Olympics, Jagger showed up with his wife in tow -he had a pass but no tickets- I kept my cool as I knew he was in town the day before via the paper a big sports fan ,the Stones were my favorite band I took my Rolling Stones very seriously travelling to shows etc I took care of him for a whole week,Bianca is from Nicaragua was previously involved with Michael Caine at 19 she was 30 then.Believe me her beauty was incredible !Jagger was a classy guy,lots of fun ,I remember at the end of the 1st day-we had all a ridiculous outfit- he looked and found me to thank me for the seats and he came back everyday ...with a different woman and they were not from Montreal all very nice and well dressed !,He even showed up with Ahmet Ertegun the very important boss at Atlantic, since I knew who he was we had a great conversation..As for Bianca,the marriage then was on a ventilator but he never got a better woman intellectually and physically. About Cartouche I will have to look at it again because Belmondo did a jaw dropping thing in the film he was fighting 2 guys from behind I think ! I have never seen anything like this-you would expect this in a cartoon, anyway,great film,sorry it is a bit long...all the best keep on posting
  2. CARTOUCHE 1962 by Phillipe De Broca with Jean Paul Belmondo Jean Rochefort a breathtaking Claudia Cardinale and an excellent cast.Set in 18th century France, another exciting collaboration with Belmondo & De Broca,excellent snappy dialogie,great sets,great camera work,Belmondo is doing all the stunts...the best action adventure film since.....Robin Hood ! 8.5 /10
  3. As you probably know Yessongs is a triple live compendium by Yes issued in 1973,Starship Trooper was on The Yes Album issued in early 71-recorded in 1970 the Fragile Album was released in the late fall of 1971 or early winter 1972,both are great albums as is the follow up Close to the Edge,i saw Yes several times in the 70's they were always good.
  4. This was the unique time Kansas City was performed by The Beatles in America,never again... they played it in the UK in October-the month after-but I do not remember if it was a concert setting or a tv show, a tape of the concert you attended could be worth good money even in horrible quality !
  5. From the YESSONGS album and video. My favorite version of Starship Trooper. Only the end was included in the concert video. The youtubber created a whole video using other footage from the show and the real ending. Amazing instrumental finale at 6 minutes, aaah..greqt stuff
  6. YES at their peak Yessongs 1973 tour,5 amazing musicians their best line up.
  7. for theGayDivorcée wherever she is....!
  8. great obscure song recorded in 66,relesed in 68 as a b-side of days -I think-was on the 2lp set KINKS Kronikles a fab comp with some rare stuff actually it will be re-released I found out today on record store day in june,this a song that the guitar sound influenced the Ramones and as fan noted it is similar to Woman from Tokyo by Deep Purple issued in 73 ! the Kinks were a fantastic band.
  9. I,am surprised no reporters are telling Pence that 1600000 tests done with 337000 positives is a 20% score ! this is a huge percentage imo. How many positives cases are possible ? 20 million ? How many deaths? On Saturday I could not believe my ears Trump was saying that he 'cherish the Constitution', everybody knows he has never read otherwise he would know the difference in executive and legislative power.He is so malicious he had to take a shot at governor Pritzker(Illinois) saying 'he could not do the job',he is always trying to put down Andrew Cuomo by saying NY turned an offer to buy 'thousands & thousands of ventilators before' the amount yesterday was 16000.Something was published about it it was not the truth.Trump is so jealous of Cuomo-who behaves like a President but heTrump cannot jab him too much , Cuomo is liked and Cuomo deserves it. I'm fed up in hearing 1917 instead of 1918,can the idiots writing the base of his speech-probably 8 lines -rest is adlibs- they can write 1918 in bold letters using a sharpie.Yesterday he was repeating what he had said 10 minutes earlier like if it was 'fresh news'. How he acted with the AP & CNN reporters is really outrageous... this is a dictatorship. Can anybody do anything ? Pushing drugs like an info-mercial is fishy & totally irresponsible, I better stop,I'am Canadian but what is happening in the USA since November 2016 is so awful ...at every level.If the number of deaths is less than 100000 Trump & Pence will tap each other on the back,and campaign on this amazing,fantastic,tremendous,incredible,extraordinary success for re-election.Sorry it is so long-did not expect it to be but I had to write it I guess..
  10. I have all the bios on Errol including his 2 novels,the first printing of Wicked Ways is worth looking for as he had to withdraw passages in it about Jack Warner and others for the next editions.I have read on Olivia and her sister as well. Errol was a gentleman,he never kiss and tell-unlike Cooper- but Michael Caine in his bio book revealed more about the De Havilland- Flynn : it was more serious than everybody said,including Olivia who denied it.She told him a detail I cannot elaborate here,but after she could not tested for the Virgin Queen part that went to Bette Davisis the way I can explain it..I see no reason for Caine to lie and it did not help to sell more books as it was not reported at all at the time.
  11. I always read Max Boot,another excellent column.
  12. Madame la Princesse vous etes toujours intéressante et drole !
  13. Un Mauvais Fils 1980 aka the Bad Son by the excellent Claude Sautet with Patrick Dewaere Brigitte Fossey Yves Robert.After 5 years in a USA jail, a son returns home and must face the hostility of his father.Very good drama 8/10
  14. i think John Mills was honored 5-6 years ago, not certain,Jack Hawkins would be good,but no Ben Hur please ! Veronica Lake would be nice but long shot,she was mostly with Paramount and many of her movies never made on dvd
  15. I MARRIED A WITCH 1942 René Clair,it played 10 days ago on TCM,I had seen it many many years ago so it was new! Funny story! i like Veronica Lake a lot,i think she was talented,i like her voice too.Susan Hayward in an early role is excellent as the abrasive fiancée of Fredric March. March was 46 when the movie was made .In my opinion he looked too old for the part and was odious with Lake on the set.She lived in Montreal in the 60's,7 years ago I was identifying a lady on the phone when I asked her her mother's name she said Veronica Lake.It is not reported she had a child in the 50's or 60's but it is possible.I believed the lady -she was surprised when I told her I was very familiar but I digress,it is an excellent film by René Clair with very good special effects for the period. 8/10
  16. She was a beautiful woman but she had many mental problems,I'am trying to see all of her movies
  17. I did.I was going to post about it,for the ones not informed about it check your tv listing.s The disease originated from Kansas thorugh the military .An excellent document.Very familiar indeed...
  18. All the best Lawrence, you are important on this board,do more reviews please..
  19. So true, actually the way Trump insist talking about the missing n95 masks in NYC reminds me of the Missing Strawberries Case in The Caine Mutiny. Capt Queeg had a nemesis,but Trump gets away with everything...
  20. Yes they were but earlier than 2012. part of the Columbia deal I would say circa 2006-2009
  21. STORM IN A TEACUP 1937 by Victor Saville.Good comedy set in Scotland with Rex Harrison Vivien Leigh & a good supporting cast including Arthur Wontner-who made 4 or 5 movies as Sherlock Holmes-a good one-before Rathbone-story involves a reporter, a dog & an ambitious politician, I do not know if this film was ever shown on TCM. 7/10
  22. Wow Jennifer on my Mind on April 3rd, an early De Niro impossible to find
  23. i had all their records including some rare ones on the French label Skydog,the first 3 are the best ones imo.
  24. I kept silent about this,but it is annoying me also,many months ago i read somewhere she was taking lessons to lose her accent.. obviously it is not working...
