Re: Cover Girl

If your friends would be up to answering more questions, like how a modern girl can properly do her hair in 1940's fashion... There's a book out there... sometimes you can find it on EBay... it's from the 1940's and includes fully illustrated instructions on how to do the coiffures of that time. A ...

Re: Welcome to Steven Bingen, July 20th-22nd

Just want to thank you again for joining us. I'm really enjoying this thread! [If Mr. Sylvester has a Kickstarter campaign for the documentary, I hope you'll let me know. You can send me a private message, if it would be gauche to mention said campaign in this venue. It's probably gauche of me to br...

Re: Welcome to Steven Bingen, July 20th-22nd

You mentioned that in 1986 Bryan Goetzinger found the streetlight on which Gene Kelly perched at that iconic moment in Singin' in the Rain . Mr. Goetzinger was able to verify this lamppost as the authentic piece via Cedric Gibbons' inventory number. Producer George Lehr also mentioned Gibbons' catal...

Re: Welcome to Steven Bingen, July 20th-22nd

Two years ago I called lzcutter and excitedly shouted into the phone, "This is the best book ever!". I had ordered a copy for each of us, as was dazzled by its thorough content. Thank you, Mr. Bingen, for this wonderful view into the City of MGM. I'm fascinated with the ability of the studio's craft...

Re: TCM Summer Under the Stars 2012

Looks like a great month. Each year I hope they'll have a Joan Blondell Day on her birthday -- August 31. I now hold this hope for next year. Kingme, you'll have an additional Rita Hayworth when they screen Cover Girl on Gene Kelly's day. Mifune = very cool! Wish "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman" we...

Re: Luciano Pavorotti

In his prime, there is no doubt he was a great lyric tenor. I'm disheartened that most people seem to know him from his stadium concerts, and "Three Tenors" uber-events. As an opera fan, I was fortunate to see Pavarotti perform many times in operas as well as recitals. I met him on several occasions...

Wow! Peggy Cummins?! What movies of her's did they show? I'd love to see Night/Curse of the Demon on the big screen. Hey! I saw Glenn Taranto interviewed on TCM tonight. I remember meeting him last year (and have him to thank for my attaining the fantastic MGM Backlot book), and believe he's one of ...

Re: Sue Sue's TCM Film Festival Tidbit Travel Blog

Poor Michael York. What happened to him? He looks like he's had some really serious health problems. Good for him, that he came to the festival, even if he doesn't look too good....sign of real self confidence, isn't it? Michael York had to cancel scheduled appearances at film festivals in the last...

Yippee! Thank you for doing whatever it was that you did! My daily fix is restored. Thank you so much, Joe, for this entire thread. It was a dismal notion to think we could have lost it.

Hey! I say "davenport". Maybe I should change my member name to "Gramps"?

It's no wonder the Academy's Humanitarian Award is named after Jean Hersholt, if he can stand between these feisty dames and keep their battles at bay...
