Frank G - If I get your drift, you don't care for Tyrone Power? Try *Blood and Sand* 1941, with beautiful Linda Darnell and Rita Hayworth, and beautiful Tyrone and Anthony Quinn. I haven't seen it in a very long time, but there's lots besides Tyrone Power to look at. It is a Fox film, though.

 

If I read you incorrectly re: Tyrone Power, watch it anyway someday.

*Try Blood and Sand 1941, with beautiful Linda Darnell and Rita Hayworth, and beautiful Tyrone and Anthony Quinn.*

 

I've never seen this version. I do love the 1922 version with the beautiful Rudolph Valentino, however. ;)

 

Grimey, I was thinking of you the other day-I finally watched *Cat People* and *Curse of the Cat People* that I had DVR'd ages ago. You're a big Val Lewton fan, aren't you? Or did I just make that up in my brain? Anyway, I loved them.

OMG, there is a Rudolph Valentino version, too? I must add that to my queue or search for it somewhere, can't get enough of Valentino! :x

 

Thank you so much for mentioning it, Minya; the TCM forums rock! :D

Hola, Missy G -- Oh brother. Who?

 

George Raft and Robert Cummings! But I will say that Harry Carey is in the pic, too. :P

 

How's the sand, Rio? -- Grimey, I was thinking of you the other day

 

Ohhhhhhh, rrrreally?

 

I finally watched Cat People and Curse of the Cat People that I had DVR'd ages ago.

 

D'oh!

 

You're a big Val Lewton fan, aren't you?

 

Yes! Very much so!

 

Or did I just make that up in my brain?

 

Your mind is starting to work some. It's great to see you making progress. :P

 

Anyway, I loved them.

 

Awesome! Do you want to talk about 'em? I'm always game to talk Lewton. There are others

on this board who also love Cat People and The Curse of the Cat People, most

notably, Bronxie and JackFavell.

 

How do, Cinemafan? -- What a lovely surprise this is.

 

If I get your drift, you don't care for Tyrone Power?

 

No, that's not my drift. Here's my drift: I have two Tyrone Power box sets and I have 22 of

his movies on DVD but the reason I have bought each of these are the ladies who starred opposite of him, primarily Gene Tierney, Linda Darnell, and Maureen O'Hara. Those three

gals are amongst my favorite actresses. So anyone who saw my DVD collection would

think I'm a big Power fan when I'm basically indifferent to him. The Power film and performance

that I like most so far is Nightmare Alley, which is one film I didn't buy for his co-starring

lass.

 

Try Blood and Sand 1941, with beautiful Linda Darnell and Rita Hayworth, and beautiful

Tyrone and Anthony Quinn. I haven't seen it in a very long time, but there's lots besides

Tyrone Power to look at. It is a Fox film, though.

Thank you very much for that recommendation. It's hard to top the Linda-Rita

combination. The only duo I can think of that I like better would be Grace and Ava

Gardner in Mogambo. I also like Ava and Deborah Kerr in The Night of the Iguana

and Rita and Deborah in Separate Tables. Rita and Kim Novak in Pal Joey

interests me. I also like Gene and Jeanne in Leave Her to Heaven. Let's see, maybe

Gloria and Maureen in A Woman's Secret and Gloria and Lana in

The Bad and Beautiful and Linda and Maureen in Buffalo Bill.

Hmmmmmmm... I think you may have a thread here.

Cinemaven adds: May I add Harlow and Loy in "Wife vs. Secretary" and "Libeled Lady" to your "Same-Sex-Dynamic-Duos-But-Not-In-THAT-Way" thread of yours. Would Jane Greer and Rhonda Fleming count in "Out of the Past" or do the babes have to square off opposite each other. You've given me food for thought Frankie me boy!

Hola, Jacqueline! -- Lamby is upset with you!

 

She can't be! She was named in my favorite duo! Love that "angry" pic of her, though. I need

to make her angry more often. :)

 

You like Nightmare Alley? Interesting. For a gal who doesn't watch film noir, you've seen

some film noir.

 

No Frank sandwich here? Katy is too much for you?

 

Yes! I'm a eunuch. :D

 

Ciao, CineBabe! -- Cinemaven adds: May I add Harlow and Loy in "Wife vs. Secretary" and "Libeled Lady" to your "Same-Sex-Dynamic-Duos-But-Not-In-THAT-Way" thread of yours.

 

Harlow? Meh. I'll go with Myrna and Gloria in The Song of the Thin Man.

 

Would Jane Greer and Rhonda Fleming count in "Out of the Past" or do the babes have to square off opposite each other.

 

They count. Although I think it would be more interesting if the two performers have bigger

roles. Ingrid and Lana in Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!

 

You've given me food for thought Frankie me boy!

 

Blame Cinemafan. She's the mad genius. She should start that thread.

I watched High Noon again when it aired the other night and each time I see

Katy's performance I find it more and more enthralling and too darn short. I would

LOVE to have seen a movie with Gary and Katy only as lovers.

 

I _do_ love Grace, I've always been a huge admirer of hers, but her character just

doesn't click with Cooper as well as "Helen" in my opinion.

I think that would have been too much for my poor heart to handle. :)

Wouldn't it though?! The tension between them, since their temperaments are so

opposite, would make for some fascinating clashes.

I'm the same way about Katy. Every time I watch *High Noon*, which is a lot, I like her more and more (and Grace less and less). I think she and Gary would have made a good team; it's a shame that didn't happen.

 

When the Austin Film Society screened *HN* last year here as part of a tribute to Mexican actresses in Hollywood the guy introducing the film had interviewed Katy pretty extensively and he explained that she and Grace didn't get along too well. Katy was a pretty established actress in Mexico and this was Grace's first film and Grace was getting most of the camera time during their scenes together and Katy spoke up and complained so they changed it. Katy also said she could tell Grace was nervous around her b/c she had a strong presence and knew more what she was doing and Katy kinda got a kick out of that.

Love Katy Jurado! :x

 

*Katy was a pretty established actress in Mexico and this was Grace's first film and Grace was getting most of the camera time during their scenes together and Katy spoke up and complained so they changed it.*

 

I think it's safe to say KJ was much more than a "pretty established actress" in Mexico at the time, she had almost certainly reached star status, second only to Dolores del Rio.

She's going to roast you for that. I think November may be the month coopsgirl

catches up on all those DVDs that have been piling up. :)

Perfect! I'm glad they're showing a couple of really rare, early bit part films that I've

never seen.
