Re: Sue Sue's TCM Film Festival Tidbit Travel Blog

Thanks for the book plug, Sue Sue, and thanks for the TCM Film Fest reportage. I love following along in my armchair travels, and I really appreciate how the classic film blogger community shares their experiences.

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I enjoyed reading your comment on "Berkeley Square" versus "I'll Never Forget You", Fossy. There is one really cute moment in "Berkeley Square" which I love -- when Leslie Howard notices his 18th century pony tail for the first time, and keeps trying to shift around qui...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Thanks, Moira. I've really been more of a lurker here than a contributor, and have enjoyed reading the discussions in the other topics and threads. If I get a chance to be more vocal in future, I will. But as you see, interesting questions and comments evoke long responses from me. If you put a stea...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Why do suppose that Blyth was not a part of any of the That's Entertainment movies? Singing and acting with three musical talents--Bing Crosby in Top o' the Morning, Mario Lanza in The Great Caruso and Howard Keel in Rose Marie and Kismet must have pretty daunting. Did Ann make a conscious effort t...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Sorry, TopBilled, I forgot to answer your question on whether I plan to write anymore film star biographies. The short answer to that is no. I have a lot of other irons in the fire as regards writing projects, and I'm eager to get back to them. That said, I could see myself writing another film star...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Thanks for the quick answer. I realize that a few members have seen Ann B. in person at the TCM Festival, but wondered if you or any people you talked to for the book had seen her perform on the stage? ( I always thought she would have been an ideal Magnolia in Show Boat and would have been quite t...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

I think the La Jolla Playhouse, founded by Mel Ferrer, Gregory Peck, and Dorothy McGuire, deserves a book in itself, particularly about those years under their watch. Thanks for your questions, TopBilled. ANN BLYTH: ACTRESS. SINGER. STAR. can be purchased either eBook or paperback from Amazon, (http...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Wow, I didn't know Thunder on the Hill was on YouTube. Better watch it quick, folks, before they take it down. Interestingly, Ann had two dramatic stage roles 25 years apart that I discussed together in a chapter that goes on to explore her icon status in the 1950s and what happened to it. The first...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

CineMaven, good point about Lon Chaney. The Man of a Thousand Faces, that was his thing. Nobody else had that kind of freedom. He was magnificent, and the studios used his creativity to leverage his appeal to the public. They should have done that with others. Moira, I know Sirk, who directed Thunde...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

By the way, CineMaven, another thing about her portray in Mr. Peabody -- the way she looks and looks at him in absolute wonder, the way her eyes roam over his face. He is a fascinating creature to her, this middle-aged man. We can understand why he would look at her in wonder, but her fascination an...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

"....I have three quick questions for you if you have time to answer: ( 1 . ) Though you didn't have Ms. Blyth's participation, would you send her a copy of your book? ( 2 . ) Do you think it hurts or helps an actress to be versatile? Does the viewing public have a handle on who she is by not b...
