Re: Walter Brennan Biographer Carl Rollyson Visits 11/7 & 11/8

Hi there Mr. Rollyson. Thanx for stopping by. The epitome of a character actor. Supporting the star, but creating a life of his own. Kindly, rum-punched, country corn-pone, cantankerous, confused...he could do it all. I have to admit my favorite role of his is as that mean ol' Pappy Clanton in “My D...

Re: Welcome to Writer Cari Beauchamp!

Hi there Cari. Welcome and thank you for giving the Oasis some of your very busy time. I have seen you speak at TCM's film festivals. You introduced "The Smiling Lieutenant" and "Calamity Jane" this year...and one year I saw you give a fascinating presentation of Frances Marion ...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

Jacqueline - thanxxx so much for those answers to my questions. You just turned a lightbulb on in my head...MERYL STREEP. Of course she would have had a difficult time back then if the studio hadn't thought to market their talent as versatile. Maybe Lon Chaney...but an Actress? "Mr Peabody...&q...

Re: Q & A with Jacqueline T. Lynch, Biographer of Ann Blyth

As the old saying goes: “There are none so blind as those who cannot see.” You have opened up my eyes a lot to two things: 1. Ann Blyth and 2. Writing a book. It wasn’t dawning on me really as I’d see your blog posts over on FB on this movie of Ann Blyth’s and that movie of Ann Blyth’s what an enorm...

Re: Al Doshna, author of Richard Anderson: At Last, on 6/6-6/7

Hello there Mr. Doshna, and thank you for extending your time to our "Oasis." With Mr. Anderson...did he have a preference for working in television or the movies? Is he from the era that looked down upon acting for tv and did it out of necessity or...is acting, acting? I've always enjoyed...

Re: All alone in this vast wilderness

I GOT THE CLARION CALL...AND I AM HERE. This Oasis was a place to go when things got extremely untenable over at TCM-City. Here was a place for discussion, wonderfully moderated, and I tell you, I've read things here ( and at TCM-City before it got so horrible ) that were worthy of scholars ; discus...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Tonight on TCM at 8:00pm ( EST) one of my favorite films. Just a good adult drama, well - acted. From 1959 the subject is not dated at all. If you've seen it once, you can see it again: http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt270/CineMaven/CINEMAVEN%20FEMALE%20ACTRESSES/ANATOMYofaMURDER_zps68ae2f4a.jpg
