Many years ago, I was working at a hotel, and had a terrible shift, just everything that could go wrong went wrong, by the time I left to go home, it was pouring rain, like a monsoon. I got home drenched & chilled to the bone, the messages on my answering machine were from my...

Probably one of the most natural actors to ever hit the silver screen.Tracy defined acting by his great quote, "less is more." Please don't get trapped into judging Tracy by his movies with Kate Hepburn. He was a finer actor in other films. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner is the...

just because the acting was a bit more dramatic then the acting of today. Every now and then I really see what he means. ☺️
Still there is something really beautiful about the way they were filmed and the talent that actors and actresses were expected to have. Today, if an...
(1940) with Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan. It's the movie of which "You've Got Mail" with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan was a remake. I was surprised to find that it takes place in Budapest, as I always assumed it took place in New York.
Claudette Colbert is probably my favorite actress. Everybody raves about It Happened One Night but it was just an okay film to me. The real Colbert masterpiece for me is Tomorrow Is Forever, never seen such heartfelt dialogue in one movie. Imitation Of Life is also a good one...
rarely matches a critics view of a classic.
People rarely mention movies that are extraordinary. For me. There are far more classics in the movies of the 20's and 30's than there were during the 40's and 50's.
Thus. Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel and...
but mostly during the golden era.
Ah.... Claudette Colbert so beautiful, a gal any guy would love to marry. So sexy too in Cleopatra and The Sign Of The Cross.
Rita Hayworth very sexy, the song and dance routine in Gilda was priceless.
Grace Kelly so regal and beautiful, one...
I have too many favorites but here goes...instead of by genre, I can list by the studios. Warner Brothers was the best...James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces or White Heat; Joan Blondell in the wonderful Gold Digger movies directed by the brilliant Busby Berkeley, Eddie G...
Hepburn(my all time favorite) from 1940. For the billion time. I absolutely love this film, her ascent, the clothes, the acting in general, the quotes..everything is perfect.
My favorite quote: "You'll never be a first class woman or a first class human being if never learn to...
I love those British "B" movies they made in the late 60's, early 70's. (stuff like "Eye of the Devil" with Sharon Tate and Deborah Kerr. The Pit and the Pendulum with Vincent Price. The Shuttered Room with Carol Lindley and Gig Young). There was usually a castle involved...
As a little girl, my grandmother was one of my favorite people to spend time with. And one of her favorite things in the whole world was a good movie. I remember spending the night with her on weekends. The two of us would shoo Grandpa out of the den, get a cozy blanket, and pop...
