Ethel Barrymore on TCM

RASPUTIN AND THE EMPRESS with John & Lionel Barrymore

NONE BUT THE LONELY HEART with Cary Grant

He as very strong in this very sad & heavy wartime drama, but always felt-(alt Oscars again) though he outright deserved Best Actor for his brilliant comedic role in Capra's ARSENIC AND OLD LACE-(that town sq is still intact at WB;s too) He was u for this instead   Billy Wilder was correct the Academy had a prejudice against out and out comedies, comedy dramas they loved

I agree...the Academy still has a bias against comedies, all these years later.

I did not watch the Oscars this year, but I was glad PARASITE was named Best Picture. I hope more foreign films take the prize in years to come. Our American films win awards in other countries. It's only fair that some of their efforts win awards in our country too!

Forgot, Cary did not want to star in ARSENIC.. & thought JACK BENNY better suited to the role

 

Ever been on the WB's VIP tour>   I was here in '99 & wanted to go again when last out there in 05

I haven't been on the "official" tour, but I have been on the WB lot in Burbank. A friend of mine worked there and I would go on to various sets with her. Mostly sets for WB television series.

I always thought Cary was perfect in ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, even though it wasn't his favorite performance.

Jack Benny would have been too subtle for the role. I think the part of Mortimer Brewster called for it being over-the-top, especially with the dark humor going on in the film.

In my view the snubbed Cary fir at least noms for THE AWFUL TRUTH\,m BRINGING UP BABY, HIS GIRL FRIDAY & ARSENIC & OLD LACE & I know who was officially nominated those yrs & who woulda had to be bumped

 

When ever someone asked him who's the best in the biz without pause he'd say MICKEY ROONEY

Afraid I'd have to disagree with Cary on that one. But to each their own.

ENEMY too  It was during the shoot out scene in the bdg wth the cops JIM said he'd had enough of it &left until they used scribbs  well, this guard insited CAGNEY was wrong &they alwas used scribbs  Museum had CAGNEY & BGART'S clthes BARALIE from THE GREAT RACE & TOBNS NRE, SUV ^ CARS FROM FREA RACE PIANO FRON CASABLANCA & YOU COUD PRESS SAY GUS OR HR VYRRIB ^ UR WIYKD SIW A CKUOetc *EXCUSETHE ERRORSm DARN WEBSITE DIESTHIS AT BIFGTm EATS THE WIRDS)  & if I try to correct my spelig uit vanishes>
