Buck Cantrell?

Could that be George Brent?

Favorite New Films

If you don't mind, I'll transfer my list from the TCM Board. I kept this updated over there, and referred to it often. I'd like to be able to do the same here: 1998 Central Station Elizabeth Gods and Monsters Living Out Loud Little Voice Opposite of Sex Out of Sight Velvet Goldmine 1999 All About My...

Fayned Lillian

I think it was Alice Faye dressed in a gay nineties type dress and hairdo. I think the dress was purple and she was wearing a hat. Looked like one of those ladies in the old Coke advertisements (what was that style called? grr? I used to know. I wanted my hair done that way for my wedding many year...

Heart Pirate?

Glad to hear your views on Now Voyager , Anne. Last fall I wrote in the TCM forum: I've always wanted to see Now Voyager from the viewpoint of Jerry's wife. Something tells me there's more to the story. I've always suspected he's had a series of wives that he blames while wooing the next victim on b...

Hanging with Patty?

Lynn, I'm also told that certain weekends the Castle is closed to the public, as the Hearst family convenes there and has movie nights! The screening room there is over-the-top, featuring two walls with leaning caryatids standing above the deluge of red velvet. It's on one of these nights that I'd l...

Merry Men

The Adventures of Robin Hood gets my vote or the best Errol Flynn, but perhaps I'm prejudiced: I was born and raised in the town where it was filmed. Throughout my childhood, I played in "Sherwood Forest" (née Bidwell Park), and would sit, enraptured, as locals told stories about the film...

Obsessions

Lynn said: My favorite Bernard Herrmann score is one of his last, Obession. It's even a good Brian DePalma film that owes more than a passing nod to Vertigo which is my third favorite Herrmann score. Wow Lynn, I've never heard the score to Obsession . Since DePalma's movie is an homage to Vertigo , ...

Operatunities

Sugarpuss said: My favorite scene has to be the unbroken and continuous "making of an opera singer" section. The first time I saw that section, I reversed it over and over, just because it's so seamless in it's backstage to performance transtition. The juxtaposition of the two perspectives...

Thank you Fernando! Yes, with this gang celebrating new beginnings with this fresh slate, I thought I'd begin anew with "Moraldo Rubini" (one of Fellini's characters in I Vitelloni ). I love this site and am glad to see you found your way here too. Everytime I see my newer edition of the K...

Is The Kissing Bandit on DVD? I didn't know it had been released yet. Maybe you got a videotape of it? Do tell.

Citizen Kane

Surely to think we can find one movie that is the "greatest" is specious, yes? How can one movie be the best? The field is thankfully too broad. On the TCM Board I was almost scared to declare my love for this movie -- as so many were virulently against it. But I think it's brilliant. I ha...

Queen Colbert

Moira beautifully stated: It takes place in the movie theatre as the military-oriented newsreel comes on when Mr. Mahoney the grocer (Lloyd Corrigan), has to leave the darkened hall. The camera lingers on the actor as he apologizes for asking people to move so that he can get out of his row. As he ...

Now Voyaging to Casablanca

I just found the scene in Now Voyager; it's when Jerry and "Camille" are in Rio de Janeiro. And now I can confirm, it's Adios. I'm very impressed, Hollis, that you remember this song was featured in both!

Farley Granger

A pal sent me this report on Monday night's Film Forum tribute to Farley Granger . It was written by Neil Genzlinger , and I'm assuming was featured in today's New York Times . Here are some excerpts : Mr. Granger may not have achieved the film idol fame of contemporaries like James Stewart and Mar...
