Conrad Veidt

I always found him immensely fascinating, even being the worst kind of villain. Every time I watch Casablanca which averages 3 times a year, I hold my breath to see if he shoots Bogie. To me, he's THAT believable. Did you read the post on the other site, about his contract stipulation? According to ...

This is such an interesting read from all of you. As I have been looking at your lists, I realize that many of your favorites are mine, too. I really hadn't put together a list in my mind, but seeing these names got an "Of course!" response. Most interesting to me are the directors. I had ...

Thanks for the list, John. I knew there was a reason I don't care for DePalma..."Scarface" was my first, last and only encounter with the man. I found it to be the most obscene movie I've ever had to sit thru (a first date, no less!) I'm not talking about the language, but the horrendous, ...

I agree with you, except for Brian DePalma. His name runs me off, rather than draw me in. Could you tell me some of his movies, I might be completely wrong. I just associate his name with gore and violence (not exactly this old gal's cup of tea)

thanks, John

Actors you watch, no matter what the film is about

"It would be interesting to name that handful of actors or directors whose name on a movie draws viewers as well as those whose stellar or supporting presence makes one pause, even when the film is less than wonderful". Moira said it best, but I will try to get this going. Are there any pa...

Sam Elliott

Geez, Moira, talk about a rush....I always wanted to see what was under that mustache :oops: :oops: :oops: I can't name a particular part of his that is a favorite. He's more (to me) like the stars of the past, when you didn't go to see a movie, you went to see a BETTE DAVIS tearjerker, or a JUDY GA...

Hi Moira! I am so glad you carried this thread over. It has always been my favorite, and I had missed it here. I continue to find wonderful threads at this site, just wish work would slow down so I could leisurely go thru all of them. Bosses just don't seem to understand my need for a daily "fi...

Re: No Idiots here

Your insights and comments are always well thought out and NEVER too long. (now, can I borrow 5 bucks???) Thanks for the kind words, C...

Hollis, I wish I was as eloquent as you are, but my feelings are the same. I just don't go over to The Other Site much anymore, because all the intelligent, informative posts are here.

Hi Jack! Yup, c'est moi! And by the way, just to show what a newbie I was before reading your posts, thanks for getting me started on watching the "extras" and directors commentaries on my DVD's. I had tried once, but was annoyed by not hearing the movie dialog....duh!!!!!! Now I first vie...

I was about 12 the first time I saw "Meet Me In St. Louis", on the '10:30 pm and 1:00 pm following day Movie of the Weekend'...and fell in love with Tom Drake, Judy Garlard, and young romance. As an adult, I still am totally charmed by the movie, but now I see it thru Mary Astor's eyes, ho...

I know this thread was meant as a joke, but how about his role as Steve in The Virginian? He was (to me) perfect as the shambling, devil take the hindmost, out for fun and an easy life cowboy.
