Hey TB, how about if we add *Wonder Boys* (2000) to the Michael Douglas list here?

 

Haven't watched it since its theatrical release, but I remember really liking that quirky little film about Academia.

THE WONDER BOYS is definitely one of his better more recent films.

 

Going by the list I provided, I would say that COMA is my favorite of his from the 70s. I thought he and Genevieve Bujold had fabulous chemistry together.

I'd also like to see those on TCM.

I just watched Polly Ann Young in the 1932 Universal mystery short THE CIRCUS SHOW-UP. She's a trapeze artist who falls to her death - accident or was it murder? (Well, it wasn't no accident!) And co-starring is sister Sally Blane...one of the suspects. Who's guilty?

And I'm sure you KNOW who was their more famous real-life sister!

Of the sisters, I would say Polly Ann most resembles Loretta. However, Polly Ann had a shorter film career than Loretta or Sally. There was a half-sister named Georgiana who married Ricardo Montalban.

 

All four ladies appear on camera together in Fox's THE STORY OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL (1939).

And *Time Bandits*, and *The French Lieutenant's Woman*, and many more. Glad you didn't list *Titanic* ;)

 

TCM is giving us *Morgan*, a classic from the 60s. Watch for a scene in the end, where Morgan is tending a flower garden. They use a simple cinematographic trick to make the scene very powerful.

Thanks for mentioning that. The second full-length feature is an MGM release, so it should show up on TCM. The first feature was a Universal picture.

THE STORY OF ESTHER COSTELLO (1957) with Joan Crawford & Rosanno Brazzi

 

I saw this movie on TCM sometime last year (I think it was played as part of the "Summer Under the Stars" day for Joan Crawford, although I could be mistaken about that). The film had some darkly disturbing drama in it, especially for its time, and a rather bleak ending, but Heather Sears gives an excellent--I might even say Oscar-worthy--performance as the title character. Too bad Heather didn't do more than just a handful of movies ...

Thanks Mr. B. As you probably noted, I did mention Heather Sears earlier in the thread. I included two of her other films plus the one you listed.

Absolutely...Estelle was delightful, and a real hoot to watch. She steals every scene she has in Murder By Death:

 

Peter Falk: "The dirty old broad is giving my palm the finger!"

 

Estelle: (giggles)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Elsa Lanchester: "I smells gas!"

 

Estelle: "Well, I can't help it. I'm old."

 

Elsa: "No, not that kind. The kind that kills!"

 

Estelle: "Well, sometimes my gas..."

MURDER BY DEATH has many great lines of dialogue. Neil Simon at his best, and the cast really goes to town with it.
