For Myrna Loy Day on Thursday: Stamboul Quest is one of the rare films where George Brent seems to have some sex appeal. He and Myrna make a surprisingly good couple.

Yes, if I do say so myself!

if any of you aRE looking for an utterly gorgeous but otherwise pretty bad movie, there is THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN on at 4:15 today.

also, while i've seen it a lot and i don't think it's as good as HOUSE OF WAX (1954), MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM (1933) is not a bad way to kill a little over an hour at 8:00 pm.

Yes, Marlene at her most beautiful and gorgeous gowns. But not a great film, though it was her favorite of all her films with von Sternberg.....great photography too.

The First Traveling Saleslady, at 6:00 AM.  Ginger Rogers plays the saleslady, trying to sell barbed wire in the old West.  Clint Eastwood gets romantically paired, not with Rogers, but with... Carol Channing.  :o

Channing also sings the song "A Corset Can Do a Lot for a Lady", and she already sounds 60, even though she was only about 35 at the time.

did you like it the first time you saw it?

I think I have amnesia about the first time, other than knowing I did see it. Did watch it last night and was a bit disappointed. Maybe I was expecting too much?

ah, KATE HEPBURN gets her 103rd SUTS day...

it's cool, i like her (raaally I do) and most everything on today is decent- only thing I'd recommend if you haven't seen it is WITHOUT LOVE (1945) on at 1:15 am- along with [the excellent] THE SEA OF GRASS and [the surprising] KEEPER OF THE FLAME- it's among the least known of the TRACY/HEPBURN pairings and I like it better than ADAM'S RIB or GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER?

(although, to be fair, I don't like either of those movies particularly. WITHOUT LOVE is all right tho, although it's a little long and somber for an ostensible comedy.)

image.png.9856f71fb4ed0565ac03b271e609bd96.pngFor AUDREY TOTTER day tho...

just about everything on tomorrow is pretty much worth catching- although in some cases, more for AUDREY (who is FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS in EVERYTHING I'VE SEEN HER IN) than anything else (TENSION and THE LADY IN THE LAKE spring to mind right off.)

at 10:00 pm, I might give THE HIGH WALL (1947) a second chance...it's directed by CURTIS BERNHARDT, who I respect, and it's got AUDREY AND HERBERT MARSHALL.

Unfortunately it also has ROBERT TAYLOR, and he just about (as I recall) ruins the film completely- WHICH IS A SHAME- because it's got a grand premise.

I like Katharine Hepburn, and have seen many of her movies.  Right now Buddy the bird and I are watching The Philadelphia Story which I've seen a billion times, but I still enjoy it.  I've seen it in the theater and own it on Criterion.  

I recorded Mary of Scotland (which I haven't seen).  I haven't seen Morning Glory and Little Women yet either, but I didn't record them because I believe they're part of the 4-movie TCM Katharine Hepburn set I own.  I'm also recording Without Love which I've seen, because it also co-stars Lucille Ball and I'd like to see it again. Finally, I also recorded The Madwoman of Chaillot because it sounded interesting.

Of the movies scheduled today, I recommend: The Philadelphia Story, Desk Set and Stage Door.  I also like Bringing Up Baby, even though it seems rather polarizing on these boards.

Audrey Totter's day looks fantastic.  I think I'm recording almost all of the noir films: Man in the Dark, The Sell-Out, The Set-Up, Tension, and High Wall.  I'm also recording Lady in the Lake even though I've seen it 2-3 times already.  With Dark Passage so fresh in my mind, I want to re-explore Lady in the Lake and the film's use of first person perspective.

(i don't know how it appears on some of your screens, but AUDREY'S PIC and MY AVATAR look like they're NOT SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER EVER AGAIN BECAUSE MY AVATAR BORROWED AUDREY'S SLIP AND ACTED LIKE SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT.)

If my avatar was next to Audrey's pic, it would look like Errol just said something really cheeky, which disgusted Audrey.  Errol would just stare at the camera unapologetically, as if he were thinking "some women have no sense of humor."
