Re: WARREN HYMER 110

Happy birthday, Warren!

Shiksa, thanks for the birthday tribute to Warren Hymer! My favorites are One Way Passage and Little Miss Marker, but he made every film he was in better.

Re: Q & A with James Bigwood about Alan Napier's Autobiography

Thank you so much for your visit here, Mr. Bigwood. This has been one of my favorite discussions here at the SSO! I am eagerly looking forward to reading your book and checking out more Alan Napier roles. I've always been aware of him as a classic film actor, but had no idea how big a career he actu...

Re: Q & A with James Bigwood about Alan Napier's Autobiography

I've just watched a ripping good episode of FOUR STAR PLAYHOUSE with Alan and David Niven, not to mention Rhys Williams and a few other Brits. Was Napier a part of the British ex-pats "club" in Hollywood, mainly socializing among themselves? I'm pretty sure Aherne was, and Nigel Bruce and ...

Re: Q & A with James Bigwood about Alan Napier's Autobiography

Moira, I am definitely getting the book! Mr. Bigwood, you mentioned earlier that Napier felt he was not a complete person before he met his wife. Can you elaborate on his early years, and also on how he met his wife? I think a few other actors have started their careers in order to overcome speech i...

Re: Q & A with James Bigwood about Alan Napier's Autobiography

Thank you for those splendid replies, Mr. Bigwood! And for the lovely picture, PT. I can definitely see how DuMaurier's acting style influenced Alan's own light, very natural and understated acting. From what I've read about Napier's contemporaries - Gielgud, Richardson, and Olivier - they all came ...

Re: Q & A with James Bigwood about Alan Napier's Autobiography

Thank you for joining us here at the SSO, Mr. Bigwood. I'd also like to thank you for helping us all get to.know Alan Napier. I think.he had a marvelous sense of gracious humor. My first question has to do with THE UNINVITED. It seems to be a favorite for most people, and in the clip posted, a favor...

Re: Vote for Your Favorite Movie Quotes for the Banner

I hope this is the right place for a suggestion for the banner quote!

I just heard this in Mystery of the Wax Museum(1933), Glenda Farrell speaking:

"I'd rather die shaking cocktails and bankers than expire in a pan of dirty dishwater."

Re: CARY GRANT

It was fun watching Cary before he was Cary, but mostly I like him from Topper forward...with a couple of exceptions. I would love to see some of Cary's other 1930's films, the ones we never see anymore. Now imagine you are an actor, and you have this string of hits in a row: 1937 Topper 1937 The To...

Both of you wrote so eloquently! It was perfection, Maven.

I'm mostly looking forward to next week's lineup and the showings on the 22nd-23rd. All Cary, all the time! :D

Re: The November 2014 Schedule for TCM

Wow! That was terrific, Joel! Really thoughtful and the encapsulations of the different time periods were spot on. I would agree with you. I think that the slasher films of the 80's had some kind of weakly moralistic structure, but didn't delve into the philosophical territory that the great horror ...

giggle. Friday the 13th part ?&@! I know you are right! I was thinking they would be all slasher-ey (sheepish grin). I'll definitely give it a try. If the mise en scene is the way you've described these in the past, I should be good. Hey, lately my daughter has gotten all gorey on me, watching T...

Re: The November 2014 Schedule for TCM

kingrat, I look forward to your reviews! Yes, I think Melville is a great director, judging from the couple of secondary movies I've seen so far. I'll check out Le Flic and Bob Le Flambeur. I think this is the start of a love affair between me and J. P. :D :D

ziggy, I didn't watch Les Enfants Terribles , first of all because I didn't know that the listing for The Strange Ones WAS the famous movie...and secondly because I needed a breather after the emotional ride of La Silence de la Mer . I have Les Enfants recorded, so I will try to watch it soon. I'm S...

OMG! That's hilarious, Moira! Did I imagine a sequence (a la The Women) where Mischa is actually portrayed as an afghan hound? Maybe an old Warner Bros. cartoon? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I was hoping there were some Jean Pierre Melville fans over here! I had to come over and find someone to talk to a...

Re: October Schedule 2014

Wow! You are making me almost glad I missed the Road to Burma movie. I've never been fond of Barry Nelson. I think I mentioned before that I saw him in a play in the late seventies or early eighties. I swear his hair made an entrance before he did. The sight of that....gulp....frightening hennaed mo...
