who are your favorite screen pairings

Recommended Posts

Fred MacMurray & Claudette Colbert

John Wayne & Maureen O'Hara

Johnny Weissmuller & Maureen O'Sullivan

Roy Rogers & Dale Evans

William Powell & Myrna Loy

Errol Flynn & Olivia DeHavilland

 

I think Cary Grant and Gary Cooper both seemed to fit well with most of their co-stars.

 

I agree with metsfan about James Garner & Sally Fields in Murphy's Romance. They had real chemistry with each other in that movie.

 

And to intentionally plagiarize some humor from FrankGrimes: Eleanor Powell & me.

Thanx, Frank. :)

Carole Lombard and Cary Grant in "In Name Only"

 

This is probably the best romantic pairing that either of the two were in together. Until I saw this movie I thought Carole Lombard was a typecast to the screwy socialite airy blond. I have seen many other great pairings with Cary Grant but don't think I have seen any of Carole Lombard's that were on par to this movie.

I love *In Name Only* and definitely agree they made a good pair in the one. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened to them and I'm glad it had a happy ending.

Yes I'm starting to lean towards the romance dramas as being my favorite type of movie from back then. Kay Francis was very good in the role of the bad wife. I had thought in the beginning of the movie that she did love him and that it was all just in his head but then she gave that look on the boat to her girlfriend that confirmed that he was infact right about her. This was a highly polished masterpeice of a movie in my opinion. They don't come much better than this one and would be on the same level for me as Ronald Coleman and Greer Garson in Random Harvest.

Joan Crawford & Clark Gable!

 

Joan co-starred in 8 films W./Clark: Dance, Fools, Dance ('31), Laughing Sinners ('31), Possessed ('31), Dancing Lady ('33), Chained ('34), Forsaking All Others ('34), Love on the Run ('36), and Strange Cargo ('40).

 

Also:

 

Jane Russell & Robert Mitchum "His Kind of Woman" & "Macao"!

Betty Field and Robert Cummings in King's Row. Yet another movie that had me racing to my Public Library! The scene in the darkened house, lit only by a storm's lightining--magnificent! I agree with another poster's pairing of Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea, but those two seemed to be hot with just about everyone they worked with.

 

Jean Arthur and Jimmy Stewart, or Jon Lund, or Ronald Coleman, or Bob Cummings, or Gary Cooper, etc.

 

Joel McCrea and Claudette Colbert, or Veronica Lake, or Laraine Day, or Merle Oberon, or Barbara Stanwyck, or etc.

 

We could go on and on about these universal pairings too.

I'll be recording Posssessed and Love on the Run on March 18th when TCM shows those movies, but so far I have only seen two movies with Joan Crawford and Clark Gable and they are Dancing Lady and Strange Cargo. Strange Cargo was a very good movie for both Gable and Crawford and I think one of Crawford's personal favorites. I may have to pick up the Joan Crawford Vol 2 box set just to get Strange Cargo on dvd and hopefully in restored condition as I don't think the movies will be sold separately much like they weren't for the Katarine Hepburn box set of which I picked up for the Cary Grant and Spencer Tracy movies.

Penny Serenade (1941) is also a favorite romantic tearjerker that stars Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. This is another favorite pairing as I also enjoyed them in My Favorite Wife and The Awful Truth although those two were romantic comedies.

Would have to be Lana Turner and John Garfield in Postman, etc. Also Montgomery Cliff and Elizabeth Taylor in Places in the Sun. Both pairings made the screen sizzle.
