As a kid, "Never a Dull Moment" and "My Favorite Wife" were my favorite movies for her and for the screwball genre.

But as an adult, I've got to say that my other two favorite Irene Dunne movies were made at Columbia--

" Theodora Goes Wild " and "Penny Serenade".

Looking at that list reminds you that she's one of the most versatile actresses of the classic era-- especially when you include her musicals.

Yes. Truly a versatile performer. All those Oscar nominations were well-earned.

Later, when we do a thread "At Columbia" we'll mention her screwball films for that studio.

I think she was a bit better served at RKO, since it's the studio that sort of discovered her and they seemed interested in helping her grow as a lead actress. She didn't come in doing bit parts or even supporting roles. They used her as a lead performer right out of the gate.

I really love CONSOLATION MARRIAGE...it's such an underrated little precode gem. Pat O'Brien makes an unlikely leading man for her, but somehow it just works beautifully.

I just got the DVD's for "The Falcon" movie series and had a chance to see Barbara Hale in both of those movies listed above.

I shouldn't have been surprised, but in 1944 she had everything that she would always have.

 She displayed the complete actress: accomplished and self-assured.

Yes, it's easy to see how she was able to go from bit parts to starring roles in such a short time. It sort of annoys me when people think of her as Della Street. She was so much more.

Wow, Robert Ryan seems to take the crown when it comes to number of films at RKO! When you get to Ginger Rogers, TopBilled, I'm sure we will see she leaves him in the dust!

Yes, I think Robert Ryan, Irene Dunne, Richard Dix, Anne Shirley and Ginger Rogers are the RKO champs.

I will post Ginger's RKO total in a little while.
