Hola, CinemAva -- Great list Frank.

 

Thank you for that.

 

If I could screen cap...I would include the dance between Louis Jourdan and Jennifer Jones from "MADAME BOVARY." That was simply an exquisite example of filmmaking...and when the windows broke....

 

Hmmmm... maybe I'll watch that next. I'll get to see Miss G in action.

 

Ciao, Madame Bovary -- I'm impressed!! I didn't even think of most of those...you have a better memory than I do.

 

:P

 

I especially like that you included Gilda, They Were Expendable and Waterloo Bridge (how did I forget that one?). They were all meaningful in some way, revealing character or feelings that the dancers were unaware of.

 

All of my dances were meaningful! Well, sort of. :D

 

Love the screencaps, too, thanks for taking the time to do those. They really add a lot.

 

Thank you.

 

Hey there, Movieman -- Heavens, I don't even know 50 directors. (And I call myself a movie fan,) I've only known about Richard Quine for a couple of weeks, consciously that is.

 

I got into films with an interest in directors more than anything else. I've got a long, long way to go.

 

I like "Jubal." Ford plays a nice guy caught up in circumstances of loyalty and walks a fine line in a love triangle and a man out to get him. Interesting story line. I heard someone say it is a loose Shakespeare of a play but I'm not smart enough not tell you which one.

 

You're the one who brought the film to my attention and it's on my DVD wish list. What you wrote about the film definitely interests me. Plus, I do like Glenn Ford, quite a bit.

I like pretty much all of those 1930s films.

 

Except the horror flicks.

 

Lots of Ford! Bet that's the only time that will happen. :P

 

Yes! I like Ford the best in the 30s.

 

And I see the two gangster films.

 

I need to watch some more gangster movies.

 

A lot of those titles would make my list, too.

 

And no Gone with the Wind! :P

They're okay, too. I like some of them.

Maybe *Little Caesar*.

That is what keeps your list from being great.

You were right! It's a highly memorable dance from a film.

Thank you for posting that. The dance was great.

 

It was a great call by you, Lively Gal.

 

I hope you're watching "Assault On A Queen."

 

Close. I'm recording it. I like Sinatra.

 

Virna Lisi is quite the incentive. "She walks well," it's said.

 

There's a list for you: "Who Walks Well?". Heck if I know.

 

Remember, this is a Miss G. recommendation.

 

Who? Madame Bovary? I just shut off my recorder! :P

Oh you know...you know.

 

"Who? Madame Bovary? I just shut off my recorder!" :P

 

Saaay, cut it back on. I'm not quite buying Frankie as diver dan...but I'm hooked to see where this is going.

I've always loved the way he moves. Like a big cat."

 

A-HA! Flixie...grown up!!! I see, now. (Oh, I'd add Denzel. He has a lovely stride!)

 

I really don't even know whose walk I like amongst women.

 

Might I presumptuously suggest Tippi Hedren in "MARNIE" and Kim Novak's in "VERTIGO" for starters? Actually she glides like a dream.

 

And let's not leave out Lana.

I like Grant's comedies overall more than the dramas. I agree with MissG's first four comedies but might put "The Philadelphia Story" at 5. "Operation Petticoat" might work its way into my Top 15.

 

Others include "Talk of The Town" and "Destination Tokyo."

 

Can't argue with anything on your list.

 

For the other side of Grant check out "The Howards of Virginia" and "The Pride and The Passion." Proof that not everything was a winner. Oh, throw "Night and Day" in there.
