Re: The Q & A on Michael Curtiz with Alan K. Rode on Dec. 12th

One of my favorites of the religious epics of the 50s is THE EGYPTIAN which Curtiz helmed. It gets a bad rap, Brando walked out on it and Zanuck's squeeze Bella Darvi took a beating. I think she's fine as the ice-blooded femme fatale, it may be that she's limited but for me she fits the demands of t...

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

Thank you for your appearance here given all else going on. Not so much a question here as I'd need to know a bit more before being able to ask one. I do look forward to reading your book as I've wondered just how circumspect Mr. Cortez was about it all. I've often pointed to his career as an exampl...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

Clore - Very interesting details on Raft's career. I'm glad Sylvia had the opportunity to work with him and appreciate what he had to offer. I did get to see Sidney's episode on Naked City (1961). Ed Asner was also in this. I met Asner earlier this year and asked if he had any recollections about h...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

I hope Scott can address this one too, clore! Saw this episode of Naked City, "A Hole in the City" for the first time about 2 years ago. Sylvia was remarkable--I wonder how Robert Duvall and the actress liked working together? Have you seen "A Motherless Child" on Route 66 with ...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

TCM aired SOULS AT SEA in June 2015, so I made a DVD of it. I hadn't seen it since the 70s and it still moves me. I believe that it is out on Universal's Classic series. Another Raft and also from Henry Hathaway is SPAWN OF THE NORTH which has Raft top-billed over the rising Henry Fonda and the decl...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

“Miss Sidney scores her points quietly, efficiently. She is always in character. Mr. Raft is in and out of his ... one cannot dodge the impression she is patiently and ever so subtly teaching him how to act.” I believe their mutual affection/understanding of each other, helped Raft relax. Sidney so...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

No questions - not yet anyway, I just learned of this thread. Just a thank you for recognizing the Queen of the Depression-era melodrama. She was so good that even George Raft showed chemistry with her. ;) STREET SCENE is my favorite and she and Estelle Taylor are actually believable as mother and d...

Thank you Chris. I guess we October births are the result of cold January nights although I was almost two months premature and thus the result of a March mating.

Re: Welcome to Scott Eyman, Our Guest Author May 8-9

Thank you for stopping by Mr. Eyman, that's very nice of you. My question is more of a Lauren Bacall one than of John Wayne, but it concerns their second film together. Ever since I first saw the film back in 1976, I get an eerie feeling watching it. It's because Bacall is playing a woman who must d...

Re: Bad Movies You Love

My pleasure Moira. The film wasn't - I watched it a week or so ago. I prefer the earlier part of the career of Delmer Daves, but still I had to check this one out.
