Re: ROBERT OSBORNE INTERVIEWS DORIS DAY FOR HER 90TH BIRTHDAY!

None of these links seem to be working. Here's the link to the interview that I posted here in my tribute to Doris Day back in May. As I said before, I love that she talks a lot about her early life, growing up in Cincinnati:

Re: Classic Movie Research: The Basics

We need to add two more:

The Media History Digital Library
http://mediahistoryproject.org/collections/

and its search engine, Lantern
http://lantern.mediahist.org/

Probably the best source for film-related books and magazines on the Web.

Re: How Many Movies Does it Take Before An Actress Becomes A Sta

I know Audrey has a small but important part in THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, and she was also in some early TV shows. Her career really took off with ROMAN HOLIDAY, which not only made her a star, but earned her a Best Actress Oscar and a slew of other awards as well.

Re: How Many Movies Does it Take Before An Actress Becomes A Sta

Katharine Hepburn's ascent was rapid. She became a star in her first movie (A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT), was billed above the title in her second movie (CHRISTOPHER STRONG), and won the Best Actress Academy Award for her third movie (MORNING GLORY).

Yeah, everybody in our group said that. One added, "Him and his 10 IQ points."

To which I replied, "He probably lost the rest in a card game with Hugh Marlowe."

Re: Tyrone Power

I spy Ty as one of the theatre ushers - front row third from left. :) You're right Jezebel. Thank you so much for watching. :) That picture was taken c.1930 at the Paramount Theatre (corner of Gilbert and McMillan Avenues) in the Walnut Hills section of Cincinnati. Tyrone Power worked there when he...

Re: Doris Day...

Aw, thanks, Chris. I was getting so much Doris Day material on my home page, I thought I would put some of the best videos here. I see it's gotten over 1,100 views since I posted them. I'm glad to see that Doris Day still has a lot of fans today, more than 50 years after she made her last movie. She...

Re: Doris Day...

And to think I was just reading this thread last night . . . This morning, I got the news that Doris Day had died at the age of 97. What a long and lucky life! I had always liked her better as a singer, but she was quite a good actress too. She was so good in movies like STORM WARNING, LOVE ME OR LE...

Re: Pronunciation Guide

Not too long ago, I was listening to a classic movie podcast (not named to protect the guilty) where the name of Anita Loos was consistently mispronounced as "loose." Back in 1936, Ms. Loos wrote a poem for The Literary Digest in which she lamented that her name was mispronounced "loo...

Re: James Cagney's pre-code films

Thanks for your comments, everybody! I really wanted to make this a dialogue among Cagney fans instead of just me blathering on and on, and I'm glad you all came out! Moira, right now I'm taking a closer look at the films Kubec Glasmon and John Bright wrote for Cagney, and BLONDE CRAZY is one of the...

I just tracked down a tough one -- Katina Paxinou, Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943). From several sources, her name is pronounced ka-TEE-na pa-SEE-noo.

Why does Billy Wilder love the state of Ohio?

In the three months since Hillsdale College hosted a lecture series on the films of Billy Wilder , I've been rewatching a lot of his films -- and seeing some of them for the first time. As I've watched many of his later films, I've noticed that many of them mention the state of Ohio or Ohio location...

Re: James Cagney's pre-code films

Hey, thanks for chiming in, Chris! I've got two more posts that I'm working on now, and I hope to get those up soon. James Cagney made 17 films before the new MPPDA code became effective in 1934, so obviously I have a long way to go! But good news for pre-code Cagney fans -- all but two of those fil...

THE MILLIONAIRE (1931): "Fool the doctors and live forever!"

James Cagney in a pivotal role in THE MILLIONAIRE (his 4th film), immediately preceding his star turn in THE PUBLIC ENEMY. It's less than four minutes long, but he packs a wallop in that short length of time, and his performance really complements that of the star, the great British actor George Arl...
