One more for Feb. 28 - a Hollywood great:

Love Minnelli! His musicals, especially, but he also made a lot of compelling dramas in his later years, like Home from the Hill.

I think Liza looks very much like her father, but you can see Judy in her too, from certain angles - and there are many similar mannerisms, and of course, the voice. When I saw Liza at the Beacon Theater in NYC for her "comeback" a few years ago, I was sitting very far away from the stage, seeing her from afar emphasized her resemblance to her mother.

> Ah sorry I posted that question right after the Alf

> Kjellin photo. :)

 

Kjellin was a Swedish actor who did a great deal of American TV in the 60s and 70s. He played a wide variety of roles: immigrant farmers, suave European diplomats, doctors and scientists, and sometimes Nazi soldiers. He was in many Swedish movies, and a few American movies, where early in his career he was billed as Christopher Kent. He was in Kirk Douglas' "The Juggler," for one. I think he was in a few Ingmar Bergman movies as well.

 

I remember him very well from my childhood and liked him very much. (Then I saw Max von Sydow, and it was all over for me as far as hunky Swedes go.)

Hi jdb1 - I look at Liza from all angles - and only see her father - the eyes, eyebrows, nose....all look just like her father. I always thought Judy Garland was rather attractive - but never felt that way about her daughter.

jdb1, was Max hot or what? PBS used to play a great deal of Janus films a hundred years ago, and I used to love the Bergman films just for him. Oh yeah, and the artistic merit.

 

When I saw him as JHC, I almost plotzed.

 

Not so much now, he hasn't aged well. Hmmm, wonder how Warren would have held up. Anyone in the audience have one of those forensic aging gizmos? Or a wayback machine at the very least?

Ah, Dolores - that scene in "The Virgin Spring" -- Max taking that sauna in the altogether. As Homer Simpson says -- UUNNNHHHNNNCHNNNCHCHH.

 

Yes, he has gotten pretty leathery, but I still find him an attractive older man. I like 'em tall and rugged. His speaking voice is also very - you know . . . . .

 

It's interesting to speculate on Warren. Sometimes people's looks change a lot, but not necessarily for the worse. There are some actors who I think were better looking as they got older. I'll say he would have looked really good. Who's to say otherwise?

The three Blotto (1930) wives with Stan Laurel. Georgette Rhodes (left) appeared with him in the French version, Anita Garvin (center) was the one we know best --- she did the English language edition, and Linda Loredo (right) filled in for the Spanish role.

Love that Stan, Snarfie. I've seen the Spanish and German-language versions of a few of their films, and the boys acquitted themselves quite well, considering they were reciting their lines phonetically.
