Recommended Posts

Oh, I've seen Stella Dallas. Boy, I just didn't recognize the actresses. So, I've seen five.

Here are some photos of Agnes Moorehead that show the transformation she underwent to play centenarian Juliana Bordereau in THE LOST MOMENT (1947):

Screen Shot 2020-07-11 at 12.22.47 PM

This film was made at Universal, and the make-up team there was already quite skilled at creating fiendish characters for the studio's horror flicks.

She had to wear a rubber mask.

Other "old age" pieces were applied.

Here's a shot of Agnes Moorehead from a scene with Susan Hayward in the movie. As you can see, she is completely made up as the 105 year old woman she's portraying in the story.

1253 is the best of the bunch IMO.  1251 and 1254 are well worth watching too.

1252, well I avoid anything with Bob Hope in it nowadays.

1257 everyone seems to love and while it's not the worst film I've seen it's not the best either.

Haven't seen 1260.

1252 plays like a sitcom. And while Bob Hope's shtick wears thin at times, Paulette Goddard's charm makes up for it. It may be the best of the three Paramount comedies they made together.

1255 features the underrated Richard Conte. A strong noir from the folks at Columbia and a key early role for James Darren. Benefits from Phil Karlson's direction.

1256 is one of Frank Sinatra's least aired films. But it features solid work from the entire cast. Even if it's a stretch that Lee J. Cobb is playing his father. And Sinatra is miscast as a Jewish man. I still recommend it for the performances and overall production values.

I agree that people seem to like 1257. Sort of a "cult" film. It led to a short-lived TV series.

1258 is my favorite in this group. I love Peter Greenaway's sophisticated dark humor. The three leading ladies are fabulous and they do very well with the cheeky material. In the story, we have three desperate housewives (grandmother, daughter and granddaughter) who decide to kill off their deadbeat husbands.

I am a big fan of Richard Conte (Oceans Eleven - the original and, I think, The Blue Dahlia).

I have seen Night Must Fall (think that is the film)

Gentleman's Agreement

Breaking Away

I think I know 1256 but don't remember film's name

I think the last one is Disney's version of Moses - never saw (only Moses movie I saw was The Ten Commandments)

I recognize Annette Bening (I think) in one film.  Some of the other films (like the one with Robert Wagner) seem familiar.

Yes, Annette Bening is pictured with Katharine Hepburn.

I think the Richard Conte film you had in mind is THE BLUE GARDENIA (1953).

I was without power for a while after there was a tornado nearby during the night I'm hearing from neighbors. I slept through it. So, I've missed out on the guessing game today. I think I would only have been able to identify 1253, 1256, 1257, 1259 and 1260.

I've seen Gentleman's AgreementBreaking AwayLove Affair and The Prince of Egypt, so four.

I've only seen it once, and I thought it was pretty good. I know it's a cult favorite and much beloved in certain circles.

Cool. The reason I asked is because I was wondering why you like it, or why people in general like it, since others don't.

It seems to be a movie that sort of divides audiences. Those who are enamored and those who are not really affected.

I know a couple of people who are really into cycling who think it's the greatest movie ever made. It's like me, my love for baseball and Bull Durham, I guess. That's a movie I could watch a hundred times (and probably have) and love it every time. If ever I was a TCM Guest Programmer, I would ask if I could schedule it. But my non-baseball watching friends are typically very nonplussed by it. Although I had a gay friend in college who couldn't have cared less about sports, but he loved Susan Sarandon's performance, so maybe there's something in it for everybody.

Bull Durham (recently watched it and Field of Dreams) is a pretty good baseball film.  Prefer Angels in the Outfield and the one with Ray Milland (forget name), The Natural, and I haven't seen Damn Yankees in years.  I liked Sarandon's performance in Bull Durham (and Tim Robbins).

I did see Come Blow Your Horn plus White Feather (not sure of the Richard Conte Film).

Don't remember Love Affair or if I saw it.

Joan Plowright - had to follow Vivian Leigh as Mrs. Olivier, and made a great Jewish Mother in Avalon (wish they would show it again).  I think she is also in a Kevin Kline and Tracy Ullman called something like I Love My Death (pizza and River Phoenix as a hit man (I think)!

I'm afraid I am in the camp of those who didn't love BULL DURHAM as much as the majority seems to (not the least of which is because of my disdain of Kevin Costner).

I will say that Susan Sarandon was probably the best thing about the film. So I will give it that much.

I don't think TCM's aired 1181 since Crawford was Star of the Month a few years ago. They don't show her silent films nearly enough. 

1183 is way too long. At least a half hour should have been cut from it. Katina Paxinou, not pictured, is the best thing in it. Plus it's fun to see Kirk Douglas at that early stage of his movie career.

I'm not really a fan of 1184, which probably explains why it took so long for me to include it on these daily lists. LOL

Like you I don't exactly care for Whoopi Goldberg, but I do enjoy watching SISTER ACT. Kathy Najimy and Maggie Smith are in it, so that helps!

thanx for some came running

Think I've seen just about all of them except 1262. My personal favorites are 1261 and 1270.

1264 is a pretty good film, though I never got into the 'Brat Pack' fad. Also liked 1268.

Never cared for 1266 though it did have an interesting premise.

1261 is Cheyenne Social Club. Yes.

1262 is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Yes.

1263 is The Cotton Club. No.

1264 is The Breakfast Club. Yes.

1266 is First Wives Club. No.

1267 is Fight Club. Yes.

1269 is Dallas Buyers' Club. No.

1270 is Book Club. Yes.

I can't identify 1265 or 1268, though they both look familiar.

So, at least five.

Dallas Buyers' Club No (but should watch.

Don't know 1265, but have seen all the rest (Kevin Kline is something like The Emperor's Club)?

Don't know if okay to post, but also saw The Joy Luck Club (read the book - like Amy Tan) and Club Paradise (Robin Williams and Peter O'Toole - pretty stupid).
