Re: Dennis Morgan

Just to tie up these loose ends for Theodora: Both THE DESERT SONG (1943) and TWO GUYS FROM TEXAS are now available from the Warner Archive Collection! (The 1953 version of THE DESERT SONG is also available. Pre-production materials for the original 1929 version are not in the best of shape, but WAC...

Re: The Ultimate Western Cliche

I was watching a long string of westerns with Randolph Scott (cue chorus) recently, and I couldn't get over how many times a room was darkened by shooting out or knocking over a kerosene lamp. How did they do that so many times without the room catching fire?

Re: Pronunciation Guide

One of my favorite character actors is Tully Marshall, and I found out I've been mispronouncing his name all these years. His first name, that is. Like a lot of other people, I pronounced it TULL-lee. But when he introduced himself in THE SHOW OF SHOWS (1929), he pronounced his first name as TOO-lee...

Re: ROBERT OSBORNE INTERVIEWS DORIS DAY FOR HER 90TH BIRTHDAY!

None of these links seem to be working. Here's the link to the interview that I posted here in my tribute to Doris Day back in May. As I said before, I love that she talks a lot about her early life, growing up in Cincinnati:

Re: Classic Movie Research: The Basics

We need to add two more:

The Media History Digital Library
http://mediahistoryproject.org/collections/

and its search engine, Lantern
http://lantern.mediahist.org/

Probably the best source for film-related books and magazines on the Web.

Re: How Many Movies Does it Take Before An Actress Becomes A Sta

I know Audrey has a small but important part in THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, and she was also in some early TV shows. Her career really took off with ROMAN HOLIDAY, which not only made her a star, but earned her a Best Actress Oscar and a slew of other awards as well.

Re: How Many Movies Does it Take Before An Actress Becomes A Sta

Katharine Hepburn's ascent was rapid. She became a star in her first movie (A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT), was billed above the title in her second movie (CHRISTOPHER STRONG), and won the Best Actress Academy Award for her third movie (MORNING GLORY).

Yeah, everybody in our group said that. One added, "Him and his 10 IQ points."

And to think I was just reading this thread last night . . . This morning, I got the news that Doris Day had died at the age of 97. What a long and lucky life! I had always liked her better as a singer, but she was quite a good actress too. She was so good in movies like STORM WARNING, LOVE ME OR LE...

Not too long ago, I was listening to a classic movie podcast (not named to protect the guilty) where the name of Anita Loos was consistently mispronounced as "loose." Back in 1936, Ms. Loos wrote a poem for The Literary Digest in which she lamented that her name was mispronounced "loo...
