So instead of doing 1 actor or actress for our February Featured Player we are focusing on screen teams. We have already put movies with these famous duos on sale, but does anyone have any additions they would like to see?

Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
Errol Flynn & Olivia de Havilland
Katharine Hepburn & Cary Grant
William Powell & Myrna Loy
Jeannette MacDonald & Nelson Eddy
Judy Garland & Mickey Rooney
Bing Crosby & Bob Hope
Bogart & Bacall
Laurel & Hardy
Spencer Tracy & Katharine Hepburn
Greer Garson & Walter Pidgeon
John Wayne & Maureen O’Hara
Abbott & Costello
Martin & Lewis
Doris Day & Rock Hudson
Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton
Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau

Charles Farrell and Janet Gaynor

 

and even though they only appeared in 3 movies together

many people think of

Wallace Beery and Marie Dressler as a team

Clark Gable and Joan Crawford

Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler

Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi

Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello

What I found amusing in this list, Midnight, is that I don't think Karloff and Lugosi were ever considered a "sreen team"!  In fact, MY understanding is, that they really didn't care too much for each other.

 

In the movie ED WOOD, actor Martin Landau, as Bela Lugosi, refers to Boris Karloff, in one scene, as---"That LYMIE C**KSUCKER!", which "urban legend" claims he actually said that about Karloff at some point!

 

I was surprised( or just didn't notice) anyone didn't mention HOPE&CROSBY

 

I would sometimes joke that VIRGINIA MAYO and STEVE COCHRAN were a "screen team", as they DID make a few appearances together!

 

BOGEY/BACALL

 

LEMMON/MATTHAU

     Actually "Sepiatone" I had a book from the early 1970's written by Leonard Maltin on movies and in the book were two pages of photos of what he called "screen teams". And Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi were pictured among the other screen teams (such as Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler).

    So if you disagree take it up with Leonard Maltin. LOL. After all, isn't he the last word on everything to do with the movies?

Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts

Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly

Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride

Donald O'Connor and Francis the Talking Mule

 

And here's a really old, old screen team:

John Bunny and Flora Finch (anyone ever heard of them)?

 

By the way, screen teams didn't always get along great with each other. Just because they were

"screen teams" didn't make them best friends. Many times they were placed together for box

office appeal. Case in point: Boris and Bela. Bela was jealous as Boris was the more

popular star. On the "small screen" look at Vivian Vance and William Frawley. They HATED

one another yet they were a screen team from 1951 till 1960. That takes some damn good

acting.

I was thinking about Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts too, last night I found a few of their Hal Roach shorts that can be found on Youtube.  Also TCM has aired their short "The Soilers" in-between features in recent times.

So did Lucy and Desi, for much of the run.  That show kept them together in the same room longer than they would have been otherwise.

This thread is a clever way for the original poster to advertise films being sold on (edited out), a competitor of Shop TCM.

I am leaving this thread up but have edited out all the references to a competing site that sells movies.  Please refrain from promoting other (competing) sites on these forums.

     Jean and Clark, Ruby and Dick were already mentioned previously. However, no one has mentioned Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers, Greta Garbo and John Gilbert.
