Robert Hardy RIP

Just heard the sad news the actor Robert Hardy died at 91. He was probably best know for playing the vet Siegfried Farnon in the classic TV show All Creatures Great And Small, though arguably his greatest performance came in Churchill The Wilderness Years, where he played an aging Winston Churchill ...

Re: What recent films have you seen?

Spoiler Tommy's Honour A smashing film about the famous 19th Century Scottish father/son golfers Old Tom and young Tommy Morris. It was film on location in St. Andrews in Fife (Chariots of Fire shot on location there, but that was supposed to pass for Kent), where the two Tommy's actually lived. You...

Re: Silverado . . . AGAIN

After leaving the door open for Scott Glenn to romance the farm widow, it might have been good idea for Kevin Kline's character to romance Linda Hunt. It might have been ground breaking, but would it have been so unreasonable

Re: All About Ava Gardner with Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski on 7/29 & 7/30

Hi Kendra and Anthony, nice to have you here. I was wondering if Ava sang, though I presume she did with her own vocals in other films like the Hucksters. I thought it was a disgrace that her voice was dubbed in Showboat, considering she did such a great job with the recordings. One of the highlight...

Re: CENTENNIAL

There were some great moments, one was Blue Leaf left to die by her tribe in the freezing cold, because her husband was dead and I assume because she was passed child bearing age. Yet she was still young enough to do something with her life. There were a lot of 2nd marraiges. Clay Basket-Pasquinel a...

John Ford's British movie. The TV version

If fans of John Ford's Gideon's Day are interested, the 1964 series Gideon's Way with John Gregson is on you tube. It was made by the same production team as The Saint. I haven't been around for a while, though I sometimes post on SSO FB page. Here's the catchy theme tune to Gideon's Way with captio...

His films with Wayne include McLintock, The Undefeated, The Hellfighters, Chisum and Cahill United States M...

Re: Richard Attenbourgh R.I.P

I really liked him in Dunkirk, where I think he stole the film from both John Mills and Bernard Lee.

Dorothy Malone

it struck me that after the death of Lauren Bacall, one of Humphrey Bogart's flirtations from The Big Sleep is still alive, namely Dorothy Malone. The same age as Lauren Bacall when Dorothy had a small, but memorable role in TBS where as a prim looking dark haired employee in a book shop, she let do...

Re: Judi Dench-Philomena-Jane Russell Controversy

Anne I just watched a Scottish made doc about an American woman from Portland, Carol King-Eckersley, called My Lost Son. It's strongly linked to the Philomena Story. Single girl Carol gave up her son for adoption in the 60s, but decided to try and trace him a couple of yrs ago, only to discover he h...

Lauren Bacall, both a classical/modern star.RIP

Lauren Bacall has died aged 89. At lot of actresses IMO get better and more attractive as they get older, but Lauren at 19 captured a magical look in her first 3 films with Humphrey Bogart, To Have And Have Not, The Big Sleep and Dark Passage. In they're 4rth film together,Key Largo the look IMO had...

Connery a year before Bond in On The Fiddle

I didn't really watch On The Fiddle when it was on UK tv the other day but was interested to discover Sean Connery was 2nd billed to Alfred Lynch (Dirk Bogarde's side kick in The Password Is Courage)in the very same movie. Connery came over as simple, whimpy, stooge to con man Alfred Lynch, who inli...
