Judith, I just purchased "Thoroughly Modern Millie", and have watched it several times (I'm quite a fan of this movie :lol: ) What part of the movie is Mae Clarke in?
Thanks!

to Moira and Ark:

Do you guys realize that you just defined the whole Silver Screen Oasis mission? A serious discussion of 2 movies from opposing viewpoints, done with tact, thoughtfulness, and grace.

BRAVO!

But I AM a knitwit :lol: Thanks, Chris, a couple of those sound vaguely familiar, I think I will rattle the brothers memory banks (if they aren't already "overdrawn" :lol: ) And keep watching...you're better than a movie guide, because you tell us how YOU feel about the movie under review. Thanks, N...

Hi Chris. Love your reviews, I've found some great films to watch because of them (and some to avoid, too!) When you mentioned the Dragon transmitting his voice thru "fan like devices" it triggered an old, old memory. I remember my 2 older brothers watching a serial on TV, when the "bad guy" did the...

When I was a child, (dinosaurs were just going over the hill) my elementary school showed Heidi , Five Little Peppers and How They Grew , and the Alistair Sim version of A Christmas Carol each year just before Christmas Vacation...NOT "Winter Break". The Sim version has always been my favorite, but ...

Mel, this really seems silly when I type it, but the Flying Monkeys in Wizard of Oz STILL scare the stuffing out of me. I honestly have to turn away or fast forward during the "Fly! Fly! Fly!" portion of the movie. :oops: :oops: And, I was DONE when Martin Balsam started up the stairs in Psycho . I ...

to the 2 Chris's..

Is it "Gunfighter" or "Sheriff", where Jack Elam's character explains his last job to James Garner: "I was the horse holder at Madame Orr's house"...

The first time I heard that, the audience exploded! Remember, this was pushing the line in 1969.

Thanks, Joe, for so much hard work. Your spotlights are the best, highlighting some great "characters" that otherwise would slip right past me.

Here's to the greatest character yet, and we're waiting for a spotlight to shine on.....MONGO JOE!!!!

TCM is showing "From Here to Eternity" and "Separate Tables" on Sunday in honor of Ms. Kerr. Wish they had chosen "The Sundowners" or "Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison" or my all time favorite of her movies, "Affair to Remember".

Moira, Can't think of one movie that she was in, that wasn't enhanced by the wonderful Sara Allgood . I remember the first time I saw this movie and how it affected me for years. John Garfield just breaks your heart, doesn't he? I just saw Isobel Elsom in a piece of fluff, "Seven Sweethearts" and sh...

The gorgeous Mr. Owen

Greenfingers is a great movie. The first time I saw him was in Gosford Park and thought he was terrific. Seems like there are a lot of not-so-hidden fires there...

I read an interview with Marsha Mae Jones, and she said she witnessed FIRST HAND Crawford's cruelty to her children. I will try to find Moira's post that has the link to the interview, and edit this message with it included.

It was probably rabbit (or skunk) or some such critter. I remember Jerry wore it every where for a week....but when it rained, and the hat got wet.....hooooboy! Thanks for reminding me of one of the funniest moments of my childhood! Now back to the game...I can't think them up, but I love to try! Na...
