  1. I just watched (re-watched) Wolfen with Albert Finney. Not as good as the Whitley Streiber book, but still enjoyed it.
  2. Include Brook's High Anxiety with his nod to Hitchcock (and again, Madeline K. - died to soon).
  3. Shirley Mac in Mrs. Winterbourne - Cornell Woolrich is "spinning" in his grave. Judi Dench should have turned down Murder on the Orient Express - please not another debacle with K.B. as Hercule?
  4. It isn't politically correct to like Woody Allen these days but I still find Sleeper makes me laugh (and I like the soundtrack). Wasn't there an earlier Fright Night? Saw that one years ago as well as Edward Hermann camping it up in The Lost Boys (also Overboard - original with Goldie and Kurt).
  5. Actually, Lucille Ball had a talent for getting herself into Ricky's show. I absolutely love Jean Hagen in Singin in the Rain (she steals the show for me). If you think about TV shows, how would you like to be a patient of House? More TV: Eva Gabor understood Arnold Ziffel (sp? - the pig) better than she understood recipe directions. Nick and Nora were always smarter than the police. For singing, Candice Bergen in Murphy Brown and that movie she made with Burt Reynolds and Jill Clayburgh Jean Hagen also couldn't act as L.L. (that voice was too funny) Many actors couldn't carry a tune so someone dubbed for them (Marnie Nixon). Also, many weren't able to dance in musicals, especially during balletic numbers (watch Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson in Kiss Me Kate or Gordon Macrae and Shirley Jones in Oklahoma - James Mitchell and Bambi Lynn (?) did the balletic numbers). I don't think most of the Partridge Family could sing (ditto the Brady Bunch)
  6. I don't consider them guilty pleasures either. I just consider what is on TV that might amuse me (and my mother - who is not an easy person to live with). That is different from paying money to see a film. I like Robert Downey Jr. and I watched Due Date. I rewatched the second Bridget Jones (and started the first). I like Kevin Kline and watched him in In and Out (Tom Selleck and his right-hand guy in Blue Bloods both in it) and The Big Chill, Silverado and some film I can't remember that is similar to Dead Poet's Society. Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire and the original Jumanji. One film that I saw the end of again (and only watched on TV) is Keeping Up with the Steins. It is about a boy's Bar Mitzvah and having had a Bat Mitzvah and know that my parents kept it inexpensive and very hamisha or family, friends, etc. at our house (the night after - girls always got Friday night slots while boys got Saturdays). Gary Marshall stars as the boy's grandfather and Doris Roberts is his grandmother (with Daryl Hannah as his grandfather's new-age girlfriend and, I think, Jeremy Piven and Jamie Gertz as parents - plus Richard Benjamin as a Rabbi). Like Big, Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail (as well as the original Shop Around the Window). Also a sucker for Nick for Nora (or Norer -- to make it rhyme since my parents were from the Bronx).
  7. I wish they could have come up with a better July 4 Prime Time Schedule. Bye Bye Birdie is not a great movie (and, again, Chita Rivera wasn't allowed to reprise her role). I know it is based on Elvis being drafted and there are a couple of good songs (Put On a Happy Face), and, the Music Man (mom saw Robert Preston exhaust himself on Broadway) is a good film but it doesn't fit in with Independence Day. Hope everyone had a Happy and safe fourth (if you live in the U.S.).
  8. The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes (used to actually run as double feature - both Hitchcock)
  9. Quasimodo played by Charles Laughton in The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  10. Donna Reed in From Here to Eternity with Montgomery Clift
  11. If I were Edward G. Robinson, I would have passed on Soylent Green. While I think some of the movie is funny, Spencer Tracy could have turned down It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (maybe too many mads in there). However, I would rather watch that than his dreadful version of Jekyll and Hyde. Looking for other suggestions for top-notch actors/actresses. I'll give some of them a pass (like Jack Lemmon, Joseph Cotton, etc. on disaster movies).
  12. I can think of a lot of films. Great Opening (don't agree about ending): West Side Story Both: How to Marry a Millionaire A Letter to Three Wives Jagged Edge Rebecca The Sting, Slapshot, and Nobody's Fool I'm not sure about opening, but Murder on the Orient Express (with Albert Finney)
