Re: Ben Johnson

As soon as you wrote that Bill Elliott made furniture, I thought of George Montgomery! He also painted and sculpted. A very talented man. http://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/seating/windsor-chairs/high-backed-windsor-chairs-actor-george-montgomery/id-f_382970/ Two pics from Chisum today. http://i742.p...

Re: Ben Johnson

Interesting! Also a little known fact. When Boyd Magers of Western Clippings magazine reviewed my book (Fall Girl: My Life as a Western Stunt Double) he said he had never heard that Bill Elliott made furniture. I assured him that he was every bit as good as George Montgomery in his wood work and fin...

Re: Ben Johnson

I love all the Ben Johnson news. I knew him briefly. Super nice guy. But am confused. I just read on another thread that Ben said Wild Bill Elliott was not much of a rider! I leased Bill's ranch for a time and he was there almost all the time with his furniture making and he also kept several stalls...

I think that is terrible. If they can't get something like that straight
how can you believe a word that comes out of their mouth.

Re: *CANDIDS*

Back to Raquel Welsh - WHERE DOES THE TIME GO . . . ? Years ago my jockey husband was beating his chest impressing a group of young riders by telling them that he rode for Betty Grable. One said: "who's Betty Grable?" I told this to Patrick Curtis who was the producer of the Golden Boot Awards and h...

Re: Most Beautiful Woman

At the risk of repeating myself over and over: In all my working years in the golden era I have never seen anyone with the startling beauty of Linda Darnel. This beauty was not captured on paper or on film . . . but in person I would find myself just amazed at her beauty. Never ever have I seen anyt...

Re: Shirley Temple RIP

What makes me just want to boil is the fact that I have not heard one word about her death on the TV News.
Not a single word. Good Grief. She was a major icon for goodness sake.

Sterling, thanks for your input regarding this matter and welcome aboard. More on Barbara Lawrence. On IMDB they say that , "After dating for only a couple of weeks, she eloped at age 18 in January of 1947 with a young contract actor named John Fontaine, aka Jeffrey Stone." This would make her 19 i...

Re: Best and Worst Lines in Movie History

One more I liked. In Letter to Three Wives -
Linda Darnell is dressed to go out with the rich guy. Thelma Ritter says, "something to her about needing some beads . . "
Linda replies: what I got don't need beads!
It was just perfect.
