  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 was talking to my mother about a movie the other day that neither of us could remember the name of. Two girls move to New York and can only find a run down basement apartment to live in. There's a boxer that lives nearby, or in the same building. and one of them falls in love with them. She said that Ann Sheridan starred in it but i'm not sure. Can anyone help us out?!!
  3. Hello! I have loved classic films my whole life! (My initials are even MGM!) I would like to start a Backlot Chapter in Central New York! Please message me to let me know if you are interested! Thank you! MGM
  4. Hi everyone! I have been trying to figure out the name of this movie for almost two years now, it was AMAZING and for the life of me cannot figure it out! I have a few basic details but everytime i search i come up empty handed so I figured why not go to TCM. Well, here it goes! Basically the movie surrounds a young girl who moves to New York to become an actress . She meets a man on a balcony during a party and they have a conversation on what they do as a career, he's an artist. jumping ahead the girl ends up working as a secretary for a gentleman who lives in the building in which the party was held, same building she ends up living and ultimately dying. Her bosses house keeper ends up finding her hanging in (from what i remember) a closest or bedroom. The head detective of the scene states that the victim was pregnant and says that because she was found in the bosses apartment they must have had an affair and he murdered her. Throughout the movie this detective searches for clues surrounding the young womans death and finds out that she has worked many jobs under many different names (a bar a restaurant etc etc) he also finds out that she ran from a small town to avoid a marriage to a young man who (i think) was to become a lawyer. While the investigation is going on the neighbors that threw the party from the beginning (a stay at home husband/ french artist and his actress wife) are being questioned by the police. **if i can remember who the wife was, i may be able to figure out the movie name but this is where i draw a blank** The wife says that she heard screams and signs of a struggle. she said that sometimes their telephone lines get crossed because they are in the same building and shes heard the suspect speaking with the victim numerous times (i could be making this up but im trying to remember best i can) she says that she cant believe he would have done this. Well fast forward to the end- the actress wife actually finds out that her husband (the artist) is having an affair with the victim due to the crossing of the telephone lines and over hearing a conversation between the two. I HOPE AND PRAY SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME THE ANSWER THAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!! I REALLLLY LOVE THIS MOVIE AND AM SOOOO BEYOND UPSET THAT I CANNONT FIGURE OUT THE NAME OF IT LET ALONE WHO PLAYED IN IT!! Hopefull the details given is enough i can tell you this movie is in black & white and its more of a "dramady" (if thats even a word)
  5. Hello. I'm trying to identify a movie that I only saw the middle of on TCM at least 8 years ago. It's set either in NYC or some other large city, but I definitely got the NYC vibe from it. It follows a girl in her early 20's as she goes about her routine. It's not about big-city life, it's more about loneliness. There's very little dialogue, she lives in a tiny apartment with an old fashioned sky light that she uses a broom handle to open. The styling is very austere and stark. She wears very plain dresses in the style of 1950's house dresses with no pattern on the fabric and her hair is just straight and down. She ends up on a bridge, or on a wall, and is contemplating suicide. A blue-collar man stops her and refuses to leave her alone because he's concerned that she'll try to jump again. I guess they become friends. I didn't see the end. Can anybody help me id this movie, please? Thanks in advance to any viewers/posters out there!
