  1. Tonight I was asking myself how actors and actresses from my hometown have won an Oscar. Between 1942-2019 there were 50 winners in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories over that 77 year period. The first actor born from NY to win a Best Actor Oscar was my favorite actor, James Cagney. He was born on the Lower Eastside of New York. He won for “ Yankee Doodle Dandy in 1942. That same year the Best Supporting Actress Oscar went to Teresa Wright for “ Mrs. Miniver.” She was born in Harlem, N.Y. Let me also mention that Mickey Rooney received an honorary child Oscar in 1938. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. The first actress to win the Best Actress Oscar was Judy Holliday for 1950’s “Born Yesterday”. She was born in New York, New York . The first Best Supporting Actor Oscar awarded to an actor from New York was presented to Edmond O’Brien in 1954 for “The Barefoot Contessa.” He was born in NewYork, NY. From 1942-1958, a dozen actors and actresses from the New York area won Oscars. Six between 1942-1948. Six from 1950-1958. From 1960-1968 - 9 actors and actresses from New York won Oscars. From 1971-1978- 10 actors and actresses born in New York won Oscars. From 1974-1978 an actor or actress born in New York won the Oscar, extraordinary. In 1978, 3 of the 4 acting Oscars went to New York born actors. From 1980-1989- 4 actors and actresses from New York won Oscars. From 1990-1996-8 actors and actresses from New York won Oscars. From 2001-2010- 7 actors and actresses from New York won Oscars. This was an enlightening task.
  2. I adore this movie. Adapted from a story by Hans Christian Anderson. In addition to the lead actress (Vicki) dying at the end, I do believe Mr. Lematov passes away as well. The last shot of him in the theater it appears he has a massive heart attack.
  3. I would love to see the other version of The Thief of Bagdad with Steve Reeves (Mr. America). I don't think they showed this one for years. I would like to see Man of a Thousand Faces, with James Cagney, I don't think they played "The King and I" either or it's been decades.

  6. I'm a big fan of Cagney and enjoyed his performance in Man of A Thousand Faces, Love Me or Leave Me, Footlight Parade, West Point Story, Blood on the Sun, and 13 Rue Madeleine. An of course all those mentioned previously. Let's not forget his brief role in Ragtime, one of his last films before his death.
  7. I had a crush on William Holden, Tyrone Power and Laurence Olivier. William Holden in Love is a Many Splendored Thing Tyrone Power in The Razor's Edge Laurence Oliver in Pride and Prejudice and Rebecca.
  8. Yes, it's a shame especially since it appears that Fox Movie Channel is owned by Disney. Perhaps they are focused more on their Disney Plus channel to work towards programming on Fox.
  9. When TCM doesn't show films I want to see I go to the Fox Movie Network, no commercials. They have not bought up all the Fox Studios films so if you are a fan of early Tyrone Power films, Betty Grable, and others, Fox Movie Network is a good choice. I also watch the Movies channel. They show commercials but have a collection close to what TCM shows. They offer a lot of film noir. There's also Cinemoi. They show Stars of the Silver Screen, which I thoroughly enjoy. They have short commercial breaks.
  10. My guilty pleasures include: Butterfield 8 Year of the Dragon with Mickey Rourke A Prayer for the Dying also with Mickey Rourke
  11. Shearer when they come to take her son from her in Marie Antoinette and when Tyrone Power comes to see her. When Shelly Winters dies in The Poseidon Adventure. The end of The Sound of Music when the family is climbing the mountains to escape.
  12. White Heat. I will always be a big Cagney fan because of that performance.
  13. Thank you and I agree, Steve Reeves is the only Hercules. I recently requested TCM play The thief of Bagdad with Steve Reeves. I know they play the Sabu version more but his is fun too. He had the best body,
  14. Tyrone Power still makes me stop and stare when I watch his character enter the party in the beginning of The Razor’Edge. I liked his performance in Nightmare Alley, In Old Chicago, The Rains Came and Abandon Ship which was heart wrenching. Love Marie Antoinette and liked him in Mississippi Gambler. Blood and Sand is not one of my favorites.
