Here is one thread I have to comment on since 1939 was the Golden Year. This really is just another list thread, and I can’t resist a list thread! Here are some of my favorites: Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz – because they are GWTW and TWOO Midnight – One of my favorite Colbert movies and...

You know, Anne stated over in the 25 Actors thread that she was glad these lists were of favorites and not the greatest causes some of hers weren't considered greats. Well, I too am glad, but most of my favorites are greats. In fact all of them are! I think I didn't list Eve Arden, Una Merkel, Helen...

Thank you, Judith! And, happy holidays to you, too. I will stick around for a while here. I stayed away because of a certain trouble maker over on TCM, but forgot all about this OASIS! After awhile, I did go back and visit every now and then, but so many others were gone, too! Then, as I was going t...

Thanks, buddy! I was on the floor when I read that line from Groucho! Of course I have heard it before, but that doesn't seem to lessen its effect.

One romantic couple that was left out was Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney. Their films Son of Fury and The Razor's Edge are fantastic! Some people believe they were the most beautiful coupe ever to be paired. Their chemistry on screen was undeniable, and their physical presence was breathtaking! The f...

That song she sang kept going through my head over and over after I saw the movie. I can't remember it now, but I can still see that sultry mouth forcing the tones out over those pouty lips! Wow! She was somethin'. Oh, yes, now it comes back to me. "Either It's Love or It Isn't" (there's no in betwe...

Oh, my gosh! I forgot about The Corsican Brothers! Yes, it is an excellent film and representation of Fairbanks, Jr.'s talent. Gee, I don't think anyone ever plays it. I saw it years ago, too. I guess I can try to buy it through Amazon. Now, Exile I don't know. Is that a swashbuckler, too? Anything ...

Dead Reckoning

Although I have heard many bash Scott's performance in this movie because her voice was dubbed and blah, blah, blah. I think it is one of the best Noir movies made. It is debatable that Mitchum's movies are better and Greer is hotter than Scott, but that is just a matter of taste. I have also read t...

Ah, feaito, that is just about the most perfect list I have seen! I really enjoy both Prisoner of Zendas as well. I have only seen Fairbank's. Sr. in The Thief of Bagdad, and I enjoyed it, but I much prefer his son, Fairbanks, Jr. His performance in Prisoner is stellar, and I really like his version...

Yes, Comrade X was a nice little film, but partly because of Eve Arden. I really didn't enjoy it much, although I have it. I never watch it. It didn't do much to stretch Hedy's range as an actress, and Clark was his usual bellowing self. She was not glamorous, and you are right, the ending was silly...

Well, I finally saw the movie, and I only have a couple of superficial reasons why I enjoyed it. I liked Zero's impersonation of Charles Boyer speaking to Hedy (only for its content), and then there was Lana Turner! Other than that, it could have been any film with any stars. It served up a lot of H...

Yes, I guess it does look old, but it is a great little documentary on the oil field junkies! But, if for nothing else, you are right, Hedy Lamarr is worth seeing (although her part stinks, she did get in the film)! At the time, it was big box office!
