1385,  1389 and 1390 I know I haven't seen as of yet.

Not so sure about 1381, 1383 and 1384.

1387 and especially 1388 are my favorites in here.  I also like 1382 really well.

I had difficulty finding the right photo for 1385, because the child actor had also been in the TV show based on the movie shortly afterward. And I wanted to make sure I used a photo that was from the movie, not the TV show.

1381 is Grand Illusion. No.

1382 is They Drive by Night. Yes.

1384 is Kansas City Confidential? Yes, if it is.

1385 is Flipper. No.

1386 is The Group? Yes, if it is.

1387 is The Missouri Breaks. No.

1388 is Poltergeist. Yes.

1389 is Three Kings. Yes.

1390 is Avatar. Yes.

I've seen at least four, maybe as many as six if my guesses are correct.

Only saw Avatar on TV (part).  Have seen The Group numerous times (never read the book) and I think it is interesting how you point out Jessica Walter.  I like her and also think Shirley Knight was so beautiful when she was younger.

Don't think I've anything but clips from Grand Illusion or Three Kings.

Not sure about 1383.

Have seen all the rest.

I have seen all but 1396 and 1400.

1399 is deliciously offbeat and quite watchable.

1392 is a lot of fun to see over and over again. 1395 is helped by yet another great performance by Sidney Poitier. I also like 1393 quite well.

The rest I am indifferent to.

I agree that 1392 is a ton of fun. It is currently on Amazon Prime. She seemed to enjoy doing a swashbuckler.

1393 is my favorite Yvonne De Carlo western. She brings out a sexiness in Joel McCrea that not even his wife Frances Dee could do on screen. I've often wondered if they had an affair. They did another film together, and the chemistry between them is again in evidence.

She turned down THE HELEN MORGAN STORY (which went to Ann Blyth) in order to do BAND OF ANGELS. I think she's very good in it.

1397 was filmed after the television series ended. I guess the idea was to do a series of movies with those characters but only one was made. However, she did reprise the role of Lily Munster once more for a TV movie in the early 80s.

I haven't seen 1399 and it looks interesting.

I don't think I can even participate in this one. I've seen very few DeCarlo movies. Usually, I don't "cheat" and go to imdb, but I did want to learn which of our films I'd actually seen, and outside of The Ten Commandments, the list is very short. Looks like she had a long stint as a bit player early in her career and had some walk-ons in some pretty famous movies, but I don't think you included any of those. Anyway, it's entirely possible I haven't seen any of these movies. I'll have to wait for them to be identified. I didn't even know there was a Munsters movie. 1400 is probably Oscar, but I never saw it.

Thanks for your participation each day. 

Do you have Amazon Prime? Some of her films can be streamed on Amazon. And later on, I will post a list of the ones currently available on Amazon.

Yes, I do.

Great! You're correct in saying she started as a bit player. She was originally signed to Paramount in the early 40s. But every time they groomed her for a supporting role or even a lead role, they'd pull the rug out from under her and give the part to Dorothy Lamour. So she became frustrated and left Paramount. 

She signed with Universal in 1945. They immediately cast her in a lead role, and Yvonne became an "overnight star" in her first picture at Universal. The studio kept her quite busy for the next seven years, casting her in an assortment of westerns, swashbucklers and musical romances. 

Screen Shot 2018-06-02 at 3.11.15 PM.jpg

What helped her was the fact she could sing, she was an expert horsewoman and did her own riding and stunts. Plus she had such exotic looks that she was ideal for more melodramatic soap opera type roles.

She started to freelance in the 50s and did some highly regarded British films, plus films at RKO, Warner Brothers and Republic, along with more assignments back at Universal. When Cecil B. DeMille cast her in THE TEN COMMANDMENTS she finally got a juicy part at Paramount.

In the 60s, she worked for Paramount quite a bit...usually in westerns. During a temporary lull in her movie career, she did The Munsters (for the money, because her husband was severely injured and they had medical bills). The Munsters brought her a whole new generation of fans. But unlike the rest of the cast of that show, she was not typecast. Probably because she went back to making westerns at Paramount. 

In the 1970s she was taking parts in a variety of projects and she continued to stay busy up through the early 1990s. She appeared in movies for well over 50 years.

She published her autobiography in 1987.

1410 is really the only one I recognize from this bunch, the rest I can't really name, I too will have to wait for the cheat sheet.

I have a feeling I have seen a couple of them, but can't place them at the moment.

1410 was okay but not a patch on the original film.

1401 could be Wonder Man or The Secret Life of Walter Mitty or It's a Great Feeling. I've seen all three.

1402 Give the prominence of the door, I'm going to guess Secret Beyond the Door. It's much-praised, but I haven't seen it.

1403 is The Reckless Moment. Yes.

1404 is Les Girls? I've seen it, if it is.

1405 is Period of Adjustment. Yes.

1406 is Alfie. No.

1408 is Brighton Beach Memoirs. No.

1409 is The Client. No.

1410 is The Silence of the Lambs. Yes.

Okay, I feel a lot better about my guessing ability after going 0-for-10 with the Yvonne DeCarlo movies! 1407 is the only one I have no idea. As for actually seeing them, I've seen at least three. Maybe more, depending on a couple of my guesses.

Good guesses! 1403 is an Ann Sheridan movie. 1410 is the sequel for LAMBS.

Okay, I was wrong on Woman on the Run and Hannibal. I should have recognized Julianne Moore. I've never seen any of the former, and while I saw big chunks of the latter during the days I had dozens of movie channels, I've never seen the whole thing from beginning to end. Looks like I've only seen three of these.
