Who would you rather meet?


Recommended Posts

For the previous one, it would be a tie, because I like both Irene Dunne and Norma Shearer.  I'm not a big fan of either George Raft or George Brent, but I would have to say I'd rather meet George Raft, just to ask him why he's turned down so many movie roles.

Barbara Stanwyck was one of my first favorite movie stars and certainly will always be one of the greatest actresses of Classic Hollywood of that age and of any age. My two favorite Barbara Stanwyck movies are:

"Meet John Doe" and

"Double Indemnity".

What versatility!

Just to get this game going -

I can't quite decide.  I never really thought so much of meeting any bandleaders, except for Harry James (I'd get to meet his wife, Betty Grable).

Next: which of Peter's fellow "Rat Pack" members would you like to meet, Sammy Davis Jr. or Joey Bishop? 

No contest here, Sam The Tap Dancing Man!

Although I always thought Joey Bishop was rather cute.

I'd go with Sly, because I'd like to ask him about his real training methods he went through for the "Rocky" movies.

Which silent film actress would you rather meet?

 

Lillian Gish...

american-actress-lillian-diana-gish-orig

 

...or Mary Pickford?

 

the-canadian-born-american-actress-mary-

I always admired Lillian as an actress, but my mother constantly told me about how great Mary Pickford was and that she was the original Pollyanna that everyone copied.

So I guess I would have liked to have gone to Pickfair and talked with her about how she created the American movie industry and United Artists.

Next: And the other two movie star founders of Hollywood--

Mary's husband Douglas Fairbanks and the Little Tramp Charlie Chaplin--

Who would you pick?

I would pick Charlie Chaplin since he was indeed one of the true icons of Hollywood's real "golden-age", plus I would like to meet his wife Paulette Goddard (only when he was married to her).  I would also like to ask him about where he came up with all of his clever ideas and tricks for his films.

I've been in love with Richard Widmark since I can remember, so I don't have any choice in the matter.

But wasn't Bob Mitchum something! 

Next:

It didn't matter if it was screwball or drama, these two very handsome men  could handle it. And they did just that co-starring with Claudette Colbert, Greta Garbo, Irene Dunne, Ginger Rogers, Paulette Goddard, and whomever else was lucky enough to play opposite them.

Who would you pick:

Ray Milland or Melvyn Douglas?

I'd say Melvyn Douglas.  In my opinion, I think he's much funnier than Ray Milland, plus I've always liked his strait-man mannerisms mixed with comedic timing.

Which of these talented young singers of the silver screen would you rather meet?

 

Judy Garland...

- Also, anyone is free to respond to the above choice between Alice Faye and Linda Darnell.

Judy Judy Judy--

And MGM thought so too. Cuz at one time they were both under contract but Metro had to let Deanna go. I've heard that she did quite well at Universal anyway. LOL

Next:

Two ladies who could handle  anything and anyone, one was your favorite:

Irene Dunne or Rosalind Russell?

It's a tie!  I like them both very much.  Irene is so sweet, gentle, and motherly and has such a lovely-sounding singing voice.  Rosalind is more tough, yet can be very feminine and butch at the same time.  Her thick, raspy voice is very attractive, as well.  She too is very versatile.

Rod Serling was like a hero to me when I was growing up.

"The Twilight Zone" was not just another scary science fiction show.

It was provocative thought promotion, which upended your narrow, acceptable beliefs.

Rod's work on television was more than a breath of fresh air--

It was an oasis of open-minded truth against an era of conformity.

Next up--

Which Elia Kazan  set would you like to visit and also meet the writer of the original work,  that the movie was based on:

*" East of Eden"/ John Steinbeck

* Splendor in the Grass "/William Inge

Or

* "A Streetcar Named Desire"/ Tennessee Williams ?

Great question but such a hard choice.   I think I'd choose Streetcar with Splendor a close second.  Streetcar has much of the original Broadway main cast and I suspect that Tennessee Williams would be a colorful character.   

Next:

Would you rather go back in time and attend a concert by:

Elvis Presley, The Beatles or Frank Sinatra all at the top of their game

Francis Albert Sinatra ( this was hard once i read the Beatles as a choice too but i'm currently more into Frank than the Beatles so yeah) 

 

 

next: would you rather see the rat pack as a whole live or one of them indivdually (your choice of who)?

Well I hate to brag, but I saw Sammy Davis Jr in one of his last concert performances in Kansas City.

But, I've got to say that my first choice would always be to have seen The Rat Pack at the Sands in Las Vegas when they were making "Ocean's 11".

They were all so very talented in their own individual ways, but what really is endearing is how much their warm personal friendships showed through in their performances.

Next:

If we could put you on the live set of a live classic sitcom performance and let you even do a cameo with the cast,

 What show would you pick? And why?

*I Love Lucy

* All in the Family

* The Beverly Hillbillies

*The Dick Van Dyke Show

* Seinfeld

you're so lucky you saw Sammy!! I was born 3 months before Dino died (95') so i never got a chance to see any of them. i also wish i could of gone to a rat pack peformance during the making of Ocean's 11. it would be nice to see all 5 of them live. 

 

for yours: I Love Lucy just because it just seems so much fun and i love that show (obviously lol) 

 

 

next: who would you rather meet Cary Grant or Clark Gable ?

Shutoo--

This is truly a toss-up.

Zasu was one of my mom's favorites.

But I was always crazy about

Aunt Betsey Trotwood--

So it's Edna May--all the way!

Next:

I love Vaudeville and old radio shows. And two of my favorites there were best friends too--

Jack Benny and George Burns.

So who would you pick?

The world's greatest violinist or the world's greatest singer?

Jack Benny, the pride of Waukegan, Illinois.   His radio shows are still funny.
