Re: *CANDIDS*

Yes, Mongo! Those gals are soooo burnin' up the screen! I especially like Miriam Hopkins; now, there's an unsung heroine!

I also like the dates! But, I think Jane and Farley were just friends!

Re: The Power of Glamour

Glad you liked the pictures of Ava.

And, of course you caught that those pictures of Garbo were of her first and last film: The Torrent and Two-Faced Woman!
Funny thing, she has the same mirror. I wonder if it belonged to her, or did they just make hundreds of those between 1925 and 1942?

Re: CARY GRANT

I can't remember when we crossed over from fantasy to reality. I guess it was sometime during the Nineties. Most all of us grew up with fantasy as entertainment, but people today love reality, or supposed reality. They swallow it with a ladle. It used to be that the stars were protected, and you did...

Re: EYEBROWS

Well, I am all for painted women. I have never been into the "natural look." Both my wives were painted women. If we all looked natural, we would probably be close to hideous. That is why they created all of these over the top looks. Of course, even back in Louis XV's day, they used charcoal to make...

Re: GARBO!

Allison, I have started reading the Mark Vieira book, again. Of course I never tire of reading about her, but I understand the plodding. I usually just read as much as I can and then stick a bookmark in until I can get back. The Swenson book is GREAT, but I prefer the Barry Paris. Anyway, I love all...

Here are some pics of Ava with short hair, and you are right; she is something else! http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l315/garbomaniac/ava50sglamourshot.jpg http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l315/garbomaniac/ava7a.jpg http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l315/garbomaniac/127522_large.jpg I am sure Ric...

Well, since we are breaking away from the book, and how! I never thought I would say it, but Agnes is phenomenal! So, thanks PT for opening up the floor! And, now for some REAL glamour shots! http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l315/garbomaniac/74091--10136122-.jpg Gene Tierney http://i99.photobucket....

Re: Credit

I'm sure glad I had a credit card today! I was at a stop light and hit my "Low Fuel" button. I had one mile left. I was in the left hand turn lane, and there was a gas station on the right! So, I waited for my opportunity and did a cross over that turned everyone's head! I reached in my pocket, and ...

Re: CARY GRANT

Hey, Allison, I just discovered this great thread on Cary! He is one of my top four: Cary Grant, Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, and Burt Lancaster. I have been reading all of the observations, and there are a couple on which I would like to comment. First, on his sexuality, I have no doubt many of the s...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Allison, I have Susan Lenox on VHS, so it should be available.

And, by the way, I started on Thursday night and went into the following Wednesday, so I did go past the weekend. I just couldn't stop! Ha!

Re: WILLIAM WELLMAN

Isn't that funny how a role can pigeonhole you for the rest of your career? It is the same with me for Mary Nash. As a kid I saw her in Heidi. She was so wicked it took me years of watching her in sympathetic roles to realize she was just acting. And, Judith, I feel the same way. That's why when it'...
