  1. I'm so glad you mentioned "Love Me Tonight." I love that film, also. I love your choices, by the way!
  2. I know what you mean, Jack. In all fairness, MY top 25 were my immediate emotional response , even though I know in my heart of hearts, many of my choices shouldn't make the 25 best FILMS. But what the hell!
  3. Thanks for thinking of this! I'd love to participate!!!
  4. I'm really looking forward to Mr. Cavett's interview with Mel Brooks this evening. I always thought his show was incredible. I've been wondering. I haven't heard a great deal of him since his show went off the air. Does anyone know what he's been doing?? I'd love to find out !!
  5. Here's my strange but extremely personal list. I trasure all these musicals. In no particular order-it's just too difficult! Yolanda and the Thief The Harvey Girls Calamity Jane Singin' in the Rain A Star is Born-Garland The Wizard of Oz The Belle of New York The Pirate The Music Man Oklahoma! Carousel The King and I Meet Me in St. Louis It's Always Fair Weather Silk Stockings Gigi Mr. Imperium Summer Stock Girl Crazy The Band Wagon Ziegfeld Follies Broadway Melody of 1940 The Pajama Game Damn Yankees Romance on the High Seas Thanks for reading this list! I love all these films for various reasons !!
  6. TCM's always had wonderful, truly imaginative graphics. But, yes, I don't care what anyone says, they just made better movies then-great stars, scripts, design , direction. All because of thre much maligned moguls who loved movies and the old studio system !! Let's hear it for TCM !!!
  7. One correction-I just double-checked. " The King and I " IS on the list.Thanks to Buddha!!
  8. Any thoughts on this? The list came out today. Many wonderful choices, but..."Grease" and " Moulon Rouge?"?? I believe the R & H musicals were ignored as was one of my personal favorites"The Pirate." Any thoughts? Check the list of 25 at CNN.
  9. My favorite Fords are " The Blackboard Jungle" and " The Big Heat." I couldn't pick one! I also think Gloria Grahame is sensational in " The Big Heat."

    "Lost Horizon" is pretty terrible in a wonderfully bad way. I have it on laserdisc where there is even MORE of it to love . Liv Ullmann who is usually wonderful-one of my favorites, in fact, looks like a deer-or doe , rather, caught in the headlights.
  11. I'd love to see Arthur Miller's " A View from the Bridge." I believe Sidney Lumet directed it. Great cast. Raf Vallone, Morris Carnovsky, Carol Lawrence and Maureen Stapleton. May be a rights issue. Anyone know?
  12. Hi Jack. Thanks for this information. I recently watched "Night and the City" and thought Mr. Richmond was very good.He had a really nice quality.
  13. I love Susan Kohner's work. Several years ago, I heard her speak on a panel which also included Claire Trevor and Susan Strasberg. It was held at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York. It was a wonderful panel moderated by John Springer. I asked Ms. Kohner what it was like working on " Imitation..." and she said the hardest part was the scene with Troy Donahue where he viciously beats her. According to Kohner, the director Douglas Sirk made her repeat the scene over and over. Many takes. She said he went overboard and thought Sirk was rather sadistic.
  14. Heckart was incredible. By the way, there's an absolutely wonderful book out by one of her sons, Luke Yankee. If you love Heckart, you'll love this book!
  15. Jack, I totally agree with you. Garbo should have gotten the Oscar for " Camille." No question. Sometimes you just wonder what in God's name they were thinking. Or maybe that was the problem. They weren't .
  16. Susu-I'm so glad you like Tom Drake. I always thought he was a wonderful actor with an incredible warmth. He's definitely missed. He should have had a bigger career.
  17. If ever there was an Oscar worthy performance, it was Jan's in "Ace in the Hole." Absolutely sensational!
  18. You're exactly right about Binoche!! I just had the wonderful Bujold's face in mind. Not that I don't like Binoche. Thought she was super in Chocolat.
  19. Sheldon

    Camelot (1967)

    You are so right!!!! I saw Andrews do it originally. I JUST missed Burton who had just flown to Rome...!!!
  20. Garland gave one of the all-time GREAT performances in "Star..." The proof's in the pudding. Try sitting through " The Country Girl" today. It's not bad-but very static. I love Kelly as a great beauty and film star , but this was like put-on-some glasses and a sweater and give me an Oscar. Kelly also won the NYfilm critics' awad that year-I guess for Dial, Rear and Country. Jean Hagan and Thelma Ritter DEFINITELY deserved Oscars as did Lansbury for Manchurian. And Lauren Bacall should have won instead of Genvieve Bujold. And Jodie Foster for Taxi Driver instead of Beatrice Straight. What were they thinking? But I guess every so often they get it right!!-like Geraldine Page in " A Trip to Bountiful."
  21. Both recent books on the wonderful Kay are excellent. She's one of my favorites!
  22. Totally agree with just about everything!! I recently watched the underrated "Yolanda and the Thief " again on laser.I also have a really soft spot for " Star!" and my all-time favorite "The Pirate." I also love "The Belle of New York." I adore Astaire and Vera Ellen.
  23. You're right, but I believe there was a separate DVD of numbers --basically like the laser I have. I believe I'd read somewhere that this particular number wasn't on it.
