Re: Welcome Joseph Egan for a Q & A on Mary Astor 1-21 & 1-22

Hi Joe; Steve Hayes again. I was wondering if there was talk in 1941 about nominating her as Best Actress for "The Maltese Falcon' as well as Supporting Actress for "The Great Lie?" The following year they nominated Teresa Wright in two catagories. In "A Life On Film" she sa...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Mrs O- I don't think that married actress/director collaborations work, primarily because, Hollywood being what it is, everyone "fools" around too much with everyone else. This seldom leads to a stable atmosphere on the set or at home for that matter. DeToth and Litvak were both notor...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Sue Sue; I think most of the Tennessee Williams plays have been pretty good when they were adapted to the screen, although because many of them had homosexual undertones, they had to try get around that as best they could, often with varying degress of results. "Glass Menagerie" is no...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Sue Sue; I love listening to compilations. Years ago Charles Gerhardt and the National Philharmonic Orchestra with the help of producer George Korngold (Eric's son) recorded a series of themes and incidental music of most of the great composers of classic scores. They have all been lovingly re-...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Mrs. O- Since I only listen to soundtracks, I'm delighted you asked which composers I like/love/listen to? Bernard Herrmann, anything and everything I can get my hands on. Besides his legendary work for Hitchcock, I love his scores at Fox and RKO in the '40's & '50's; "The Man In The G...

Oh Sue, Sue, Nasty Oscar snubs. First and foremost, Tony Perkins in 'Psycho" and Robert Walker for "Stangers On A Train". Not even a nomination!!! Many more from Hitchcock movies; Thelma Ritter in "Rear Window", Madame Leopoldine Konstantin from "Notorious", Patric...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear, Darlin' Mrs. O- HOORAY!!! Lets do talk about sex. Who is and who's not sexy in the movies. One of the things that's always interested me is that it's a topic that everyone happily differs on. For me, it's never been a case of who is or isn't sexy, but rather, who could I imagine actually havin...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Mrs. O - I love the 50's sci/fi films because they didn't have CGI and had to use their imaginations to get things across. It was the era of legendary stop action animation artist Ray Harryhausen and his efforts in the genre; "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms", "It Came From Beneath...

Dear Sue Sue; Who is better and what isn't better for being photographed by Jack Cardiff? What that man did with Technicolor is astounding, especially his three with Michael Powell and Emeric Pressberger. "Black Narcissus is mesmerizing. Every shot is a painting. I can never get over how stagge...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear Sue Sue; You asked me what movies affected me when I first saw them on the big screen? I moved to New York on Labor Day of 1976. I was walking around my neighborhood, turned a corner and there was The Thalia theatre with a double bill of "Laura" and "All About Eve"! I stayed...

Re: The Q & A with Steve Hayes, Tired Old Queen of the Movies 10-22 10-23

Dear PT; "Magnificent Obsession" is too sappy and preachy for me. Like Lana Turner's story in "Imitation Of Life". It's boring, I don't buy it for a minute and I don't care. That doesn't mean I have to. Nor does it mean it's not well acted or directed, I just don't believe it. Th...
