Guy Kibbee was the most amazing actor. A while ago I recorded "Design for Scandal" on the DVR and have been watching it now and then, especially the courtroom scene where the most ridiculous stuff is going on with Walter Pidgeon and Roz Russell and Lee Bowman. His dialogue is wryly funny but he delivers it as though it were the most natural thing in the world.


Pidgeon says he's not a lawyer but wants to represent himself.


"We'll help you; we'll help you," says Kibbee.


Then later when the uproar is at its highest, he asks the court reporter, "Are you getting this down?"


The reporter says no, and Kibbee (as the judge), says, "Well, take it down; you're not doing anything else, are you?"


Great scene. I don't know another actor who could have done it as well. I miss him.

"Three Mae Wests all in a row in the persons of RAF pilots Eric Bostock and Kenneth Baird and the screen star herself. The two British fliers are wearing ?Mae Wests,? lifebelts so named because of their buxom resemblance to the star, and they were caught in this maewestish pose at Columbia studios as they read the actress into membership in the ?Mae West? club." August, 1943

MAE BUSCH (1891 - 1946)

Mae's Hollywood career lasted 30 years; she worked with many of the leading directors, actors and actresses of the time. After a long illness she died in 1946, aged 54. She was cremated and her ashes remained in a cardboard box at the Motion Picture Country Home Hospital for over 20 years until a proper internment and plaque was provided. Sad.

I agree Midge, especially that photo of Sabu! By the way, I know the men probably haven't noticed but Mamie Van Doren looks like she has devil eyes in that picture of her, the eyes are all black! ]:)
