Quick Chuckle

I enjoy the opening scene of The Major and The Minor when Ginger, Rogers, as Susan Applegate, enters Robert Benchley's apartment as a trained representative of the Revigora Hair Restorer company. Before he gets the shampoo, Benchley invites her to slip out of those "wet" things into a dry ...

Doris and Storm Warning

In Doris' bio, written with A.E. Hotchner, she discusses how her father had been a rascist in her formative years with him, and how he had been so intolerant of anyone whose race had been different from his own. When Doris returned triumphantly to Cincinnati for a premiere, she recalls how her fathe...

Review

Great review, Chris. I enjoyed how you tied in the history of its creation as well.

Que Pasa?

Dear Ben,
Please clue me in. Woody Allen has a project in Spanish? Or Spain?

What's the scoop?

Brighton Rock

I don't even know if it is available in the US. I watched a burned DVD of it in the UK. If it is for sale, it may be only available in the UK, and the need for a multi-region DVD player would be required. Thanks to Kyle and pktrekgirl for my lovely avatar and it's accompanying Ginger script and pink...

books...

I haven't actually read The Count of Monte Cristo before, so I'm doing it now. Also, Doris Day by A.E. Hotchner, plus two textbooks, one I'm teaching and one I'm learning about. Has anyone read the Uncle John's bathroom reader about Hollywood? Most of the stories I was familiar with on some level, b...

You Tube

If you You Tube, check out Angela Johnson at the Nail Salon. I fell off my pedestal with that one!

Hi, Mr. Arkadin. Just read the noir thread at TCM and realized I didn't respond to your Brigton Rock query. Hermione Baddeley was also very good in that film. I actually got to walk on that pier last summer where part of the movie was filmed and heard all about it's history. Richard Attenborough rev...

Bob

Dear Anne,
I can't remember if I've ever asked you this, but did you read that Bob Mitchum book that came out in 2002? There was a story in there about Loretta.

Obsession...

What I'd like to know is who isn't obsessed with Gary Cooper! My favorite
Gary films are Saratoga Trunk and For Whom The Bells Toll.

My favorite screwball comedies, though, are My Man Godfrey , Bringing Up Baby, and Adam's Rib.

Farewell, Amanda......

It's Doris...

Yes, I agree with sugarpuss. The Thrill of It All and Move Over, Darling are both enjoyable. Polly Bergen is in Move Over, Darling , and she's a total hoot in this one. If you are a Bergen fan, this is a must for her lighter touch. Thelma plays her no-nonsense advice-dispensing self in one of her la...
