HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM


Recommended Posts

Always thought it was a shame she and Finney never did another film together, because as you said, he was one of the very few leading men she was teamed with that was really closer to her own age.

Interesting film. Need to see this again, it's been awhile since I saw it last.

I have no idea if it is any good, but "Shot in the Dark" (1941) is on today at 5:15PM and it hasn't been on TCM since 2003 according to MCOH's  database.

Wow, 104, and to think she's still alive and kicking!

She's the last living legend from the Golden Age studio era who is still among us.

I watched it and the other movies yesterday (recorded them).  A Shot in the Dark (1941) is not bad, not great either.  But entertaining little movie.  Apparently a remake of Torchy Blaine's Smart Blonde per Wiki.

Wow. One of the few people on the planet to be alive in both the 1918 pandemic and Covid.

For the final Ann Sheridan night, City for Conquest and Silver River are both worth visiting or re-visiting. I'll try to check out one or two of the others that I haven't seen.

Davis in one of my fav EVIL BETTE roles

(along w/"Little Foxes")...... :)

 

Yes, she was deliciously nasty in this one.

Bette had a talent of playing the most deliciously vicious women ever put on screen.

She's not the only one though, although she's probably the most high-profile Golden Age Centenarian left.  Don't forget about Marsha Hunt (102--next birthday is October 17th), whose first screen credit came in 1935.  Her last one was in a TV movie in 2008, according to IMDB.  Norman Loyd is presently 105 (next birthday is November 8th) and spent much of the 60's and 70's as a producer and associate producer.  His last screen credit was in 2015, and he was in an episode of 'Modern Family' in 2010.  His first big screen role came in 1939.

I love DRIVING MISS DAISY.

Been awhile since I saw THE SEVENTH CROSS, but if I recall I did like it. Have to watch it again.

It's a REALLY DARK movie, honestly, I almost think of it as a horror picture.
