Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Lynn, Thanks so much for being a guest and writing such an interesting history of Las Vegas. I wondered if you've seen Las Vegas Nights from 1941? It shows Las Vegas as a much smaller town than most of us are accustomed to seeing. I think that your inclusion of live interviews was a great thing for ...

Re: Ricardo Cortez Q & A with Dan Van Neste on 8-26 & 8-27

Hi Dan, Thanks for being here and giving us insights into the life and career of Ricardo Cortez. You already addressed the question of Ricardo and Stanley working together but my my main question is: why did Stanley take on the Cortez name? We already know that Ricardo Cortez was a studio-given name...

First of all: Congratulations to both of you on your fantastic book! I already have three copies-one for me and two for gifts. Yikes, I may need more.

Re: Welcome to Christina Rice, Our Guest Author on 11/17 & 11/18

Christina, I'm so glad that you have written a book about this wonderful actress. I first took notice of her in The Strange Love of Molly Louvain . She had a kind of modern natural quality in many of her films. In your book, you spoke of her growing relationship with Leslie Fenton during this film b...

Blancanieves-modern silent

Has anyone seen Blancanieves? It's a modern (2012) Spanish film, silent, 1:33 format, based upon the Snow White and the Seven Dwarves story. It just came out on DVD. I really enjoyed it. It's quite artistic and set in teens and twenties southern Spain. Supposedly, it was in the works before The Arti...

Re: WELCOME TO THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS, ALEXA FOREMAN!

Alexa, If Knitwit45 doesn't have a beer in the fridge, where would you go for a cold one in Atlanta? But seriously: being a Georgia native must mean that you have some favorite films, set in your own home state. Other than G.W.T.W. is there a favorite? Thanks for being here this weekend and I hope t...

Re: WELCOME TO THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS, ALEXA FOREMAN!

Mrs O, That is a great scoop about Mother Dolores Hart being a co-host. Thanks for giving us the heads up! You mentioned that you spoke to Paul Newman on the phone, about an Elizabeth Taylor piece, sometime before he passed away. I guess that brings to mind the question of Joanne Woodward and what s...

Re: WELCOME TO THE SILVER SCREEN OASIS, ALEXA FOREMAN!

Alexa, thank you for posting all of these great stories and tidbits of information. We're eating it up. BTW, I am very excited about Mary Astor's SOTM in January. I've been asking the "TCM powers that be" for Astor's and Ronald Colman's inclusion in 2014. That's great news. I am also excit...

Steve, Thanks for being here to discuss the wonderful Mary Wickes. Although I grew up seeing and appreciating her in many films, I have a special memory of her. I went to high school in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the early 70s, one of my classes had a field trip to see "The Mystery Cycle&qu...

Re: Napoleon (1927), anyone?

Lynn, Thanks for posting your thoughts and reactions to Napoleon. As one who was sitting next to you, I, too, experienced so many of the same things. It was thrilling to be in one of the most gorgeous Art Deco movie palaces in the world: the Paramount Theatre. The film, albeit 5 1/2 hours long, neve...
