Larry, I must say that Jessie must have been something else. Wish that I have met her.
Did you know that she was only 8 years older than Cary Grant when she played his mother in "North by Northwest"?

Dickson, it's good to see you back on the thread again. You are right about Jeffrey Hunter.

Had the pleasure of talking with Ricardo (and a true gentleman he was; my wife still melts each time his name is mentioned or she sees him in an old movie - darn that Latin, hard act to follow). He told me something quite interesting. Despite all the movies and TV appearances he made since the 1940s, he never felt financially secure in his career until FANTASY ISLAND. He also admitted that he was paid more for one of his Chrysler Cordoba commercials than what he earned weekly during his MGM contract days. Plus he had the added bonus of receiving a new car from Chrysler. Who says appearing in television commercials doesn't pay?

Could Ouida perhaps be planning a party for the pooches?

Basil looks a tad unsure.
