AD, I believe Lee Tracy was riding high until he became a naughty boy while filming "Viva Villa!" (1933) in Mexico, at which time MGM fired him from the film and terminated his contract.

He did work after the incident although mostly in B films.

His crowning moment came later in his life when he was nominated for an Academy Award.

Great job! You have to be pleased with your performance, and your hair looked good! lol

 

How typical is that of true movie lovers like you spending the whole day in the theater. I did the same thing, but got home when I was told! lol It was different back then for a kid at the movies, wasn't it? Shame.

 

Anyway, nice going! I look forward to your chat at the end. Oh, one question, did you and Robert really sit and watch the movie together? :-)

Mongo.....i enjoyed your comments about going to the movies as a kid.Back in 1961 when I was eleven I went to a saturday matinee showing of "Gone With The Wind" with a bunch of neighborhood kids.We were used to seeing Saturday matinee westerns and B movies so when the curtain came down for the intermission we thought the picture was over and so we got up and left.It was years before i figured out that the movie didn't end with Scarlett pulling up radishes in the garden.

Georgiegirl, thanks for the plaudits. I appreciate it. It certainly was an enjoyable experience

sitting opposite Robert Osborne. No, we did not watch the movie (none of us did).

 

Snerd, thank you. That is a funny story about "Gone With the Wind".

Mongo,

I really enjoyed "meeting" you when you presented Double Indemnity. You have good taste in your movies. I was wondering about Fred McMurray. He was so good in this film and I know he did not win the Academy Award for his role but do you know if he was even nominated. Also, since Fred did not win that year, who did? I'd like to know who the academy thought did a better job than Fred playing the hapless Walter to the coniving Phyliss! Anyway, I really did enjoy spending the evening with you and Robert Osborne.

Lulu, thank you and I'm glad that you enjoyed the movie. Unfortunately Fred MacMurray was

never nominated for an Academy Award. Bing Crosby won that year for "Going My Way",

Barbara Stanwyck was nominated but lost to Ingrid Bergman in "Gaslight"
