Re: Your favorite character actors

Milton Parsons is a very familiar face to me, and he has a prime bit, utilizing his spectral appearance, in the Dick Van Dyke Show episode "The Ghost of A. Chantz." http://www.hulu.com/watch/114057 He's a mental case in Fingers at the Window (1942) , a really good little murder mystery starring Lew ...

Like Dan Blocker always calling George Montgomery "Mr. Rock" on Cimarron City? Thanks, now I don't have to always call you "WesternGuy" :) (sounds vaguely rude to me, somehow.)

Re: Gone With or Without fanfare

Apparently Will Rogers Jr. told him "don't ever take a dramatic lesson. They will try to put your voice in a dinner jacket, and people like their hominy and grits in everyday clothes." To me, his acting seemed to increase in ease during his television shows, where he revealed a strong personality, c...

Re: We Bought a Zoo

. Mary-Kate: Your Disney production idea might have offered a suggestion or two to the writer of We Bought a Zoo, but this movie was basically a love story between a father and his motherless children and how to create a family atmosphere with only one parent available. The 'bad guy' was a pisant, ...

Re: Tyrone Power

OMG! At first, I thought you were kidding. That really is Burt Mustin? It sure is! The picture is from an online article for Widener Magazine. It seems that Burt Mustin was a 1903 alumnus of Pennsylvania Military College. There's a nice page for him (with more pictures!) here: http://digitalwolfgra...

Re: Tyrone Power

You prefer the Donald Meek type? I have to say, that gave me quite a chuckle. :lol: Perhaps I wouldn't go that far but I do like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin who can't be compared in looks to Tyrone Power. Buster Keaton I could never call handsome, but he has an interesting face. Lots of chara...

Re: We Bought a Zoo

Mrs. L., I haven't seen this particular film, but the basic premise of redeeming a derelict zoo reminds of "The Wacky Zoo of Morgan City", from Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. It's a very enjoyable two-parter, which has been shown on the Disney Channel but has yet to see a DVD release. Joe F...

Re: Your Ten Most Wanted?

Thanks for the youtube clip, I do have a recording from AnnHarding without subs. It's a big film from the 1930s in French cinema, it's surprising it hasn't been released to the wider world yet. You're welcome; and yes, that does seem peculiar... maybe it's meant as an incentive for more people to l...

Re: Tyrone Power

Fernando, speaking of Ty and Susan Hayward, have you seen RAWHIDE ? A terrific Western with a wonderfully suspenseful climax. Recommend it highly. Hi Stone, Have not seen that one; it's on my "Pending" List. I have wanted to see it ever since I heard for the first time the title tune sung by Franki...

I'm sorry to hear that it didn't help --- I can't understand why it won't work for you. :(

Maybe this tread over on the Help! forum can be of some use? http://silverscreenoasis.com/oasis3/vie ... =11&t=5873

Re: Tyrone Power

I also love his audio recording of Byron's poetry. Thank you for mentioning them Paula, I hadn't been aware of their existence, but they are excellent! Right now I'm listening to 'There Was a Sound of Revelry By Night . http://www.myspace.com/tyronepowermusic/music/albums/poems-by-lord-byron-110997...

Re: Your Ten Most Wanted?

thank you so much for looking, Mary-Kate! Oh, think nothing of it. :) And I realize now that it's also on Amazon as a download ($9.99, again) and on disc as a Reg.2 Import from Spain. I'm afraid $9.99 is a bit too steep for anything other than a real DVD. I'm definitely with you there! ($9.99 = ouc...
