Sir John Mills revisted

I hope folk don't mind me metioning John Mill's again. IMO while other British actors acheived more Internationally like Cary Grant, Charlie Chaplin and Ronald Colman, Mills was the most successful actor working in British films. I've also recently discovered he had a talent for Film Noir with movie...

Anne Sheridan, a Stanwyck like performance in Wagon Train

I've been watching a few Wagon Trains recently and was hugely impressed by Anne Sheridan in The Mavis Grant Story, where she played a role Barabara Stanwyck would have been good in. One of my hobby horses is moaning about the fact that many classical actresses of the 1930s were written off by the 50...

In the Columbo episode I mentioned there was footage shown from Walking My Baby Back Home, a musical she had made with Donald O'Conner. This was to show her character as she was 20-yrs before, a major star

37 Days and Britain's Great War

I don't know if in America, you'll be to aware it's a 100-yrs since war broke out in Europe in 1914. However,I imagine you''l have your doumentaries and drama's on the subject in 2017, when America entered the conflict. Over here was had a brilliant documumentary series Britain's Great War, written ...

Re: Documentary on George Brent and Arthur Shields

Moira I think of Arthur Shields as an actor who often potrayed spirtual leaders, both good and bad in many films. In Drums Of The Mohawk he would shame folk from the pulpit, but redeemed himself by killing one of his flock, to save him from torture from the Indian's He was the bigoted Deacon Mr. Par...

Janet Leigh

Having watched Janet Leigh in the The Manchurian Candidate for the first time I wondered if one could split her career into 2 parts. In the early part of her career it appeared to me, though you may disagree, she was very much the girl next door in films like Little Women and That Forsyte Woman . Sh...

Re: DEBORAH KERR....

Hi Red Spoiler Yess I do like The Chalk Garden, though I do think it's far fetched at times, but I won't spoil the plot for you, only to say the film left me hoping Deborah and John Mills might become romantically involved. It was nice to see Deborah playing a still young woman of the 1960s in contr...

Dinah Sheridan and Vivien Leigh a link

The 2 British actresses Vivien Leigh and Dinah Sheridan are linked in that both were romatically involved with John Merivale, in Dinah's case she married him and remained with him until his death. It's sad though, because John as well as being Vivien's boyfriend in her last years, since her divorce ...

Re: DEBORAH KERR....

Being a Scot myself, I believe that Deborah Kerr is the greatest actress Scotland ever produced. It's a pity that while she got the chance to play an Austrailian woman in The Sundowners, Deborah never got a chance to play to the best of my knowledge a character of Scottish origins (Funnily enough in...

Have you ever noticed that if a star of the so called classic movies lives long enough, their passing slips under the radar. I bet there are plenty people out there of never even heard of Shirley Temple, despite her considerable achievements

Shirley Temple RIP

The great all-round entertainer, mainly as a child Star and polititian Shirley Temple Black has died. She was a life long friend of another child star of the period Sybil Jason, who herself died not that long ago. I liked her in 2 of her early films. Firstly, Stowaway with Robert Young and Alice Fay...
