Hi - hmmm, well... what do I get to call you then? ;) CM, Cineman, or "Mr. Cineman27, sir!"? LOL!
My weekend was pretty nice, and so far the week's going well...
Speaking of the Wizard, a while back I rented the DVD of the early versions of it, including the 1925 silent with Oliver Hardy. It was very interesting, especially the documentary they included on L. Frank Baum... worth seeing I think just for that. If you haven't seen it, you might look out for it...
Hey Cineman! Glad to join your new group! I'm looking forward to you getting some good discussions going. I started one that I was hoping might get the ball going. I think there are many different things we can discuss about MGM. They made so many wonderful movies and had so many marvelous stars!
LM? Why you are quite forward, sir! (And you from the South, too, I see!) You can call me LadyM, and then after a couple of posts we'll see. LOL
The new year is definitely better than the end of the last one, that's for sure... hope it's going well for you, too...
Tracy/Hepburn were great (on and off screen)but, I prefer Bogart/Bacall. I think part of it is, while Tracy and Hepburn each had a lot of talent and personality, both Bogart and Bacall individually had that extra edge and charisma... and then putting them together? Perfect!

To view Elena and Her Men click here. In its time Elena and Her Men (1956) was something of a disaster for Jean Renoir, a succession of problems (contested rights, fevers, bad accents) for which he struggled to find solutions. It was a box office and critical dud, and ended any hope of Renoir returning to Hollywood. To read its […]
