Re: *CANDIDS*

Thanks for the Jean and Primo pic. I saved it this time. And, thanks for the Cecil Beaton shot of Hepburn. I read a lot about him in my Garbo bios. He was supposedly one of the great sought after photographers taking everyone's picture from Queen Elizabeth to American debutantes. I haven't really se...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Fernando, I haven't seen The Siver Chalice in a very long time, but I can never forget the sets, either. The ones for Jack Palance were out of this world, very angular. But, you're right. It didn't hold any other fascination for me. That is probably why I haven't seen it again. Last week, I took som...

Re: *CANDIDS*

Well, 6'2" is pretty tall, especially back then. But, by today's standard, it's not tall enough! Ha! I was always 5'11", and thought I was pretty tall, but I just went to the doctor's, and he measured me. I am now 5'10"! I'm shrinking! I guess a lot of the male stars back then were ta...

Re: *CANDIDS*

Great Garbo pics! I saved both of them.

Fabulous GINA!

Patriotic Paulette looks marvelous all wrapped up (with a bow)!

And, was Errol really that tall? They remind me of Harlow and Carnera.

Re: The Power of Glamour

That's true. Even if they weren't in films when they were young, they were pretending. Then, after stardom came their way, it all just seemed so natural. It seemed as if it would go on forever. It did for some, but not for others. That is why I am not so sad to see stars die young. It saves them fro...

Re: The Domestic CAT: Feline at its finest!

Ha! Now, that's funny! I had a parrot once for about three weeks. It got so everytime I'd leave the room he would squawk and squawk. I finally returned him to the pet shop. I felt bad, but I found out a young girl of ten had wanted it, so he was going to call her to see if she were still interested....

Re: To Dream of Dogs

Merci, Charlie and kw! And, funny thing, last year I rescused from a shelter two little dogs who had been dumped in a box on the side of the road. As it turns out, I picked the #1 breed, Chihuahua! Who'd a guessed? That is one breed I swore I'd never have, and now I have two. Be careful what you swe...

Re: GARBO!

Back in '36, '37, '38 there was always the "possibility" of filming in color. Nothing Sacred in '37, and Robin Hood in '38 were very costly. I have read that Marie Antoinette and Camille were considered, but in the end deemed too expensive, too bad. But, there were color photos taken. That...

Re: The Power of Glamour

I'm not so sure you are. There is a lot more expected of women as far as appearance. Unlike nature, man has made woman the peacock. I'm not sure when that happened. Maybe it was women who moved forward on that to attract men. Anyway, that is why so many gals go under the knife. And, if you are a STA...

Re: The Domestic CAT: Feline at its finest!

Well, of course. You have given him a wonderful home, and he has had a very happy life. I am sure he won't hold anything against you. I sure wouldn't; I'm all for euthenasia, but that's a different topic.

Re: The Domestic CAT: Feline at its finest!

Oh, my, Allison. I can't tell you what to do. I watched both of my little dogs die, three monts apart, going through the throws of death just like my wife. But, I told myself, "This is what death is." Most things that die go through this, what we call suffering, but I am positive that you ...

Re: Stars and other actors playing stars - does it ever work?

Well, as bad or good as Carol Baker was in Harlow, she skyrocketed me into the world of old movies. I was a sickly child: asthma, pneumonia, every child illness know to man, so I was aware of old movies. I used to watch TV in the Fifties and the only movies they had to play were from the Thirties an...

Judith, that is the funniest story! At least it will be ten years from now. I hope your hand gets better soon. But, I imagine he DOES love you! And, guys, since my wife died, I have no problem with death. If a cat or dog is sick and needs to be put out of its misery, then I do it without hesitation....

Re: Clark Gable

Social climber! Opportunist! Ingrate!

Well, wasn't everyone for the most part? If he hadn't, he would have never become The King, and the love story of Gable and Lombard would never have been told.
