I know the photo is labeled as Vincente Minnelli, but it is NOT Vincente Minnelli - it's not his jaw line, not his smile, not his eyes, not his brow, not his nose, not his head - he never had the elfin look like the pictured man does and Minnelli definitely did not have a cleft chin!


Also, Minnelli was not the director at the outset of the filming of The Clock. He replaced Fred Zinnemann after shooting had started.

It most certainly is!

Cowboy star Hoot Gibson dating actress June Gale (later to be

Mrs. Oscar Levant)



In 1933, Gibson, an avid pilot, entered the National Air Races. His plane crashed, and he was seriously injured, which kept him hospitalized and off the movie screen for several months.

(Ms. Gale is at his side).

Maven - you've been holding out on us. That is such a great memory to add to your guest programmer experience with mongo and the others. They will last your lifetime. As with those attending the Festival and sharing their fun, I am once again living vicariously through you and other TCM fans.

He was a gracious gentleman. After you get things all squared away...I WANT YOU OUTTA THE HOUSE and writing of YOUR cinematic adventures!!!


The Maven has spoken!


Mongo... Heaven knows where Ruby was. I sort of think they were estranged; professional jealousies and "other" kind of jealousies too, from what I've read.


Dorothy Dandridge was stunning looking. Hey wait a minute...you're the Candid Man. Let's

have a nice dreamy color photo of Dandridge in all her glory. Saaaay something from "Is-

land in the Sun" or in spectacular red as "Carmen Jones."


Whaddya say???
