Re: *CANDIDS*

That HAS to be GARBO! It couldn't be anyone else!

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Oh, Fernando, I haven't seen The Glass Slipper in so long. I have it on VHS. I should watch it again since you brought it up. Nobody talks about that film, and I think it is great! Richard Chamberlain is one of those forgotten stars who could do so much and bring so much to any film in which he part...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

The Swan was on today. It is such a beautiful movie. I kept thinking about Grace and how easily she played the part of a princess. She probably made it seem so easy after she married Rainer. After all, most of life is ACTING! I loved all of the cast. Louis Jordan was so young and handsome; he and Gr...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

Ha! Birdy, that is a funny story. I pictured the whole thing as I read it. And, I know about not minding! It is a life's work. I suppose it is very much like raising children. I should say raising, as my mother would say, "Chickens are raised, children are reared!" Anyway, poor baby needs ...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

Now that I am in the new house, the puppies are having a terrible time. I didn't know anything about Chihuahuas when I got them. They are so nervous! Scared of everything. I am on a corner of a main thorough fare, and the trucks, motorcycles, and noisy cars freak them out so badly they won't go pee ...

Re: The Domestic CAT: Feline at its finest!

Well, I have moved into my new house. I move so often (about every four to five years) I guess I have ants in my pants. Anyway, the cats have moved now four times since I've had them. The first move I kept them in the garage for about a week to get acclimated. The next time was about four days. Then...

Re: Actors you watch, no matter what the film is about

I agree; there really are too many to mention. I have commented on this thread before, but I just had to make a list. It is so inspriring! But, many on my list have already been mentioned, so I'll just add these. But, here goes my list: Greta Garbo Tyrone Power Hedy Lamarr Errol Flynn Jean Harlow Bu...

Re: *CANDIDS*

Oh, how I miss restaurants like that! I was only a boy, but I remember my parents taking me out to places similar. I suppose every town had its classy restaurants. Here in Stockton, California there were Otto's, Murphy's, Risso's, and Albert's. They were all dark with leather booths. The waiters wer...

Re: I'm moving but I'm going to be offline for ages!!!

Oh, Alison, what will I do without your comments. You and I talk so much, and there will be no one to talk about Garbo with! Well, shoot! I guess I'll just have to get over it and look forward to your return. I too, just bought a new house, but unfortunately, or fortunately, all of my phone service ...

Re: *CANDIDS*

I am crazy for Isabel Jewel! In Bombshell she played the "loose" girlfriend of Jean's no-good brother. At one point during the chaos, she says, " Hey, I'm gettin' sober; how 'bout you?" Oh, she was also in Go West Young Man with Mae and Gary Cooper (giving all of those great impe...

Re: GARBO!

I am sure she did know. From all I have read, she had her minions buy up all the newspapers and magazines that even mentioned her each day so she could read what everyone was saying. I expect her insecurity needed the strokes: although, it didn't seem to comfort her enough to extend her hand to the ...

Re: GARBO!

Over on the TCM Boards there was a discussion on Garbo. Someone brought up the fact the Garbo's face was geometrically perfect, and that it had actually been measured. I was aware of that fact, and so I researched it and came up with these photos. To my knowledge, no other star had been so scrutiniz...

Gosh, I love these Cecil Beaton shots casually thrown in here and there. They are so refreshing, and I am always taken aback!

Re: Prescription drug victims

Well, I have become a terrible fatalist as I have lived my life seeing life and death. I believe you go when you are supposed to go. Some people take prescription drugs all their life and nothing goes wrong (like my mother who was a pill junkie of the worst kind who finally died at the age of 87); s...
