I'm not sure if the book is available in the UK, but there's a whole section on Rosemary Clooney in a book called "The Star Machine" by Jeanine Basinger. She's under the section entitled, "Malfunctions" (which makes her sound like a robot!). It basically asks the same question th...

Thank you so much for your insights and answer to my post, Mr. Arkadin! It's always good to get the opinion of someone who's more familiar with the film than I am. And even the info about the POW camps. I'm really unfamiliar with war history. I never paid attention in my history classes in high scho...

Mr. Arkadin, I mentioned on the other board how much I wanted to see this movie. I watched it the other night and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It really exceeded my expectations. I'm showing my age here, but the most I knew about George Segal was "Just Shoot Me" (Horrible show),...

Yes! Two more people that have seen this movie. I wound up accidentally finding it one night on the Encore Love Stories channel and I loved it as well. It really is Patrick McGoohan's movie though. The whole movie relies on how evil he can be and he does a great job being totally despicable in so ma...

Thanks, Miss G! The funny thing is that when I first saw "The Long Goodbye", I had no idea who Robert Altman was. I was very, very new to classics. I only watched it because it was a Chandler/Marlowe movie. However, now that I've seen a few more, I have to agree that I'm not too hot on his...

I do like "Champion", but now that I've seen the other boxing movie of that year, I prefer "The Set-Up". However, "Champion" is one of those good movies to watch if you like seeing the rise and fall of someone--which I do. I never thought I'd be a person who would enjoy...

Thanks, Moria! And that poster is great. Towering over the city like that, she looks like she's ready to go on a smallpox spreading rampage! Evelyn Keyes at her worst looked better than I do when I'm feeling great. Her hair was always perfect and sure, she looked a bit pale at times, but there was n...

I could never get into "The Long Goodbye", mainly because it deviated so much from the novel. I'm not too much of a stickler for how much the movie is faithful to the book, but the ending drove me nuts. I first read "The Long Goodbye" when I was 15--and then moved on to every oth...

I just got around to watching this the other night (it was fairly short and I was tired - a perfect match). I actually enjoyed it. It was a decent way to spend 80 minutes, although during movies like this, my mother and I tend to amuse ourselves by screaming things at the television. Like when Evely...

I taped this a few months back - I think February, mainly because of Edward Everett Horton. I love anything he does, even when he's in movies that aren't of the best quality. Eric Blore was another draw as well. And I agree with Chris, I liked it, but I wouldn't call it a rave. I'd recommend it only...

I actually prefer "Vertigo" to "Rear Window" mainly because I like Kim Novak more than Grace Kelly (please don't stone me) - but they're two completely different movies, so I guess you can't compare. But I thought "Vertigo" was more beautifully shot and the final scene,...

I wound up getting my Now Playing guide Friday, but since I have to complain about *something*, I do NOT enjoy the little sticky circle tabs they used to keep it closed. Grumble, grumble. It always seems like I'm in the last round of people who get them. I'm very excited about the December schedule,...

All of those Andy Hardy films are MGM, aren't they? So it's not like Columbia didn't come thru with the goods or anything like has happened a couple of times this year. From what I gathered from the Programmer on the TCM board, they don't own the MGM films and even those have to be leased. There's ...

John, I envy your ability to bake from memory! Do you mean like cakes, cookies - that sort of thing? I once made a regular vanilla cake and it was so dry. I used a substitute of corn starch and flour for cake flour (from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook). Never again! I did make a mocha cake on...
