Wow...such inspiring choices from all of you. I fear I might duplicate your lists so I won't try. Just want to mention to you ChiO that Gable & Colbert did "It Happened One Night." Gable & Lombard did "No Man of Her Own." Dogpaddle: "Eye of the Beholder" came and went so fast from the theatres...but I sure loved it; am a big Ashley Judd fan. Dr. Doolittle: Cary & Irene were a great great team. As for you FrankGrimes: are you really saying you can handle a killer tomato like Gloria Grahame? Whew! What a maaaaan!

Cinemaven: Glad to hear you like Ashley Judd. I do too. More than one writer has, in effect, called her the modern successor to Ida Lupino. I like the comparison. She's great playing strong, beleaguered women standing up - with guts and resourcefulness - to a hostile world . And, of course, she looks so good doing it. If you haven't seen "Normal Life"(1996) where she's teamed with Luke Perry, check it out. An amazing amazing performance - and fairly early in her career. "Eye of the Beholder"'s definitely one of my very favorite films of the last decade. So sad it wasn't a hit. You may or may not know that there's a terrific documentary about the making (and subsequent rocky career) of that film. It's called "Killing Priscilla" (director Stephan Elliott's had previously directed the super successful "Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert") - and it's well worth watching.

Hi there, how can I get my hand on the copy of the documentary? Do I have to go through Luke Perry just to get to the lovely Judd? Ugh! I don't think I would liken Ashley to Ida Lupino. Ida was really a tough tough babe. And there's something soft about Ashley Judd. (Think of Ida rat-a-tat-tatting her dialogue to Geroge Raft in "They Drive By Night" when she tells him "I commited murder to get you!" I don't know if I'd believe Ashley). But I am a fan. She did those films with Morgan Freeman, then her first movie (which took place in a resort town). I don't want to imdb. her. She doesn't get much play. Big fan.

Hey, Chicagowen -- Fascinating how one's obsessions du jour play out in the selections.

 

Obsessions? What obsessions? You can't be talking about me. Ohhh, crap. Not again.

I thought you'd mention John Alton. You also get some love from me for Musuraca and Bass.

 

Hawks and Grant & Kubrick and Hayden should have been on my list. I'm glad you mentioned them.

 

Director/Actress ("Marriage Probably Involving Substance & Psychological Abuse Beyond Our Imaginations" Category)

 

Nicholas Ray/Gloria Grahame

 

My poor, sweet Gloria. And I love Nick Ray, too. And she loved his son, too. My poor, sweet Gloria.

 

Hey, Girl with a Gorgeous Name -- I really liked these two selections of yours:

 

Joseph Cotten and Jennifer Jones- "Portrait Of Jennie"

 

Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney- "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir"

 

By the way, your tastes are very interesting. You're all over the map, especially for a demented girl. Quite appealing.

 

SuperSweetGreer -- Do you know that I have only seen one of the films on your list? How old are you again? I don't believe you. You're too impressive. What's the only film I have seen:

 

lauren bacall and bogie-"the big sleep"

 

I really need to see The Thin Man. I must watch some Myrna.

[CineMaven] -- *Gable & Colbert did "It Happened One Night." Gable & Lombard did "No Man of Her Own."*

 

How embarassing. And I'm always doing that -- Claudette vs. Carole; play relationship vs. real relationship. Oh, well. I get so confused in my old age.

Gloria? A killer tomato? No, no, no. She's a sweet little angel.

 

Look, she only wants to talk to me on the phone. Nothing more than that.

She's cute as a button at work. Don't look at the gloves, and no her eyes aren't saying a thing. Not at all. Not at all.

Why is she giving me that look, CineMaven? That one's new to me.

Something tells me I may like getting squashed by a killer tomato after all.
