  1. I totally agree with you on Petticoat Fever, though it contains one of my favorite Bob lines.

     

     

    Teehee....one of my favorites comes when his fiancee brings up the subject of them rearing their children in the frozen tundra. He says something like "they'll be playing with seals." The look on his face just cracks me up.;)

  2. I hear you about Kino, Criterion and their hefty price tags. But for the most part, it's definitely money well spent. I'm sure if it weren't for Criterion, two of my favorite movies ('The Devil and Daniel Webster' and ' Haxan')' would have never seen the light of day on dvd. Not to mention the other wonderful titles in their catalog. They are definitely a cultural lifesaver.:)

     

    I'm still saving up my pennies to buy the Criterion edition of Brief Encounter and the Kino issue of Liliom.

     

    I simply adore Allen Jenkins. I think he's much like Lee Tracy ( who I adore as well) you either love him or hate him.

  3. Teehee....I rather love Lady in the Lake. Audrey Totter's theatrics are quite amusing, and I think Bob makes a decent Marlowe.... plus I love the Christmas backdrop.

     

    "i like your tan, that's very Christmasy"

     

     

    But I would LOVE to see Ride The Pink Horse released on dvd. It's such an amazing film noir, that's so often sadly overlooked.

  4. I love this quote from a review of the newest Jim film...

     

     

     

    but instead of the classical Hollywood stars who could so perfectly embody Wodehouse characters, 2004 offers the modern Sam Rockwell......

     

    I like Sam in some things, but of course, he's no Bob!;)

     

     

    And yes, it was lovely to see Montgomery and Benchley getting wasted together.:)

    I love Benchley to pieces, and am so happy to see that a collection of his brilliant shorts is due to be released soon.:)

    Ever Since Eve is a fun movie and one can never go wrong with a film that has Patsy Kelly, Frank McHugh and Allen Jenkins providing character support.:)

    I think the first film of Robert's I saw was Here Comes Mr.Jordan which TCM hardly ever shows.

  5. Have you read the book??? The film is really nothing like it, but it still manages to keep that fun Wodehouse feel.:) I too wish Bob could have done more in P.G.'s lovely universe.;) I was so surprised to learn that Wodehouse helped write the screenplay for The Man in Possession.

     

     

    I agree about Madge Evans....she seemed to be calling in her performance, but Frank Morgan was a treat ( as always) and Eric Blore was a hoot.:)
