Yes, you are correct. Very good! Douglas' first film was THE GREAT GABBO with Eric von Stroheim. He was in several classics, including NOW, VOYAGER, MURDER, MY SWEET and GILDA, as well as some B favorites such as the Charlie Chan opus DEAD MEN TELL, THE FALCON OUT WEST and TARZAN AND THE AMAZONS. Do...

Sure. I didn't go all the way back to see if anyone's done this one before, but I hope not. Do you know me? Although I wasn't born in the US, my family moved here when I was quite young. I'm not really known as a singer, but in my youth I sang in the chorus of the New York Metropolitan Opera Company...

Thanks.

It was the Hoppy reference that gave it away to me. I've taped most (if not all) of his movies off the Westerns channel in recent years. I haven't watched them all yet, but I have enjoyed the ones I've seen.

Yeah, I've seen Brennan in that. It's a Warner Brothers picture, so you probably saw it on TCM. I liked him, but I can't say I wanted to sit in his lap! Other pictures where he plays normal, regular guys (actually officers) in the service are SEA OF LOST SHIPS and WILD BLUE YONDER. And he was was re...

There's not much out there on her. Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia says that a combination of "bad luck and personal problems" led to her career decline, but he doesn't elaborate further. Possibly Mongo or Larry can add something.

It was one of Dunne's last movies. Her last theatrical film was actually the comedy IT GROWS ON TREES, which in the past has often been the subject of the "INFORMATION PLEASE" threads "over there." And yes, it is one of Alec Guinness' first pictures. I know I've seen it somewhere on some "movie chan...

Here are some. I'll probably think of others long after this thread sinks to the bottom: Lon Chaney Jr. is often held up today, even among horror fans, as an actor of extremely limited range, but as I've noted here before, if you check out his work in OF MICE AND MEN, HIGH NOON, THE DEFIANT ONES and...

Agree wholeheartedly with your comments, Dewey.

As to the flashback-within-a-flashback-within-a-flashback thing, THE LOCKET makes better use of it than, say, PASSAGE TO MARSEILLE, which rivals it in that sense.

We wish you well in your ongoing endeavors to see this film, Mrsl. For me, the film's most telling moment comes at the climax, when Lord Wotton realizes the full implications of his life's philosophy, in fact, sees it moldering at his feet, and breathes "God forgive me!" Truly a compelling commentar...

Mongo, I've enjoyed your very informative posts both here and "there".

I can always learn something new, even about an old favorite, and I appreciate your knowledge and willingness to share it with us.

Many happy returns of the day.
