"FilmFanatic, your bro is wising up. Dictator is one of my favorite CC films. He is fascinating to watch. When you know just how involved he was in film making you understand the movies even more than usual. Hopefully Anthony will school his fellow…"
"Watched Room at the Top and was not disappointed. Not sure if I really like Laurence Harvey but he was very good in this. He's not an actor I seek out but he was perfect for the role. Simone Signoret was beautiful and oh so very good. It…"
"Wow! Some pic that is! One thing that does stand out in this film is the color. Absolutely brilliant!
I just noticed on the TCM (US) site that March is going to spotlight British New Wave. I am excited. Among the titles are Room at the Top, Saturday…"
"Another movie I saw during the week was "Gervaise".
Emil Zola's book "La Assomoir" filled me with despair and
I could not read another of his books for many years. I
don't know what drew me to the movie - just wanted…"
"You know everytime "The Red Shoes' comes on TV,
which is a lot, I am always "stymied" from watching
it - either the timer doesn't go, (it is always on in the
wee small hours) or if I do tape it the tape goes
"Hi. Well for myself, I have no issue with your link. I'm not sure how the administrators feel so you may want to inquire with them. I'd love to check it out. "Exotic" or no Euro films are fun to watch."
"Thank you for your very nice comment! Actually there are so much more actors/actrices that I didn't even mention there.. Love to meet in your person someone who agrees on Don Ameche! Hope you'll have a wonderful day!!"
"Irene, thanks for joining my Int'l/Foreign Films thread. Sadly i don't get to go on line as often as I'd like so until I see my next classic Foreign film I might be a bit hard to find. But I do love your list of faves. Really,…"
"A few weeks ago I saw "Vacation From Marriage" with
Deborah Kerr and Robert Donat as a married couple
who were in a rut. He then enlisted in the Navy and she
went to the WRENS (it was during WW2) and they came
back completely different.…"
"Very cute canine!
I noticed that Messers Jordan and Skeffington were on today but didn't get the CR connection at the time. I think Adverse is the only one of those films I haven't seen.
Adore that photo with the white t shirt! He…"
"A few months ago I saw "Life for Ruth" (1962) with
the magnificent Patrick MacGoohan. It was a
really powerful film about a couple whose child
is injured in a boating accident while they are
debating whether to let her have a…"
Casablanca, Little Caesar, Public Enemy, Singin' in the Rain, A Man for All Seasons.
Who are your favorite stars?
Cagney, Robinson, Brando, Stanwyck, Loy, Wm Powell, Peter O'Toole. I also love the bottom tier stars like John Payne, Robert Young, Bob Cummings, Jack Carson, Robert Montgomery and my personal fave, Don Ameche! Not as big as say, Cary, Tracey, etc but actors who could carry a film and make you enjoy it even if the film isn't so hot. Charles Boyer fascinates me.
Who are your favorite directors?
Curtiz, Ford, Capra

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]
Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
