    The Sizzling Jane Russell

    This is the TV special I'm talking about. It's from the DINAH show in 1979. Jane appears, as does Debbie Reynolds, Jean Peters, Jane Powell, and Diahann Carroll.

    The Sizzling Jane Russell

    I know she held Bible studies that were attended by many well-known names during the '50s and '60s. She tried to introduce several of her co-stars to the Lord, but most of them rejected her. It's puzzling that that WACO hasn't shown up on Grit TV, which is a channel my father watches a lot. My...

    The Lana Turner Thread

    Wyman easily eclipses Turner in the scenes they share.

    It's a Living on Tubi

    I just found this relatively recent picture of Ann Jillian will browsing the web. She's still an attractive woman, but I wonder why she hasn't done any acting in over twenty years? IMDb lists her most recent credit as an episode of WALKER, TEXAS RANGER from 2000 called "Winds of Change" in which...

    Ranking ALL Knots Landing seasons

    I think KNOTS was at its peak from seasons four to six. I liked to tail end of the third season, especially all the drama and anticipation surrounding the Val/Gary/Abby love triangle. The episode where Val finds Gary and Abby together and she leaves the cul-de-sac in that red dress is KNOTS at...

    Marilyn Monroe and the Actors Studio

    Photos from a photo session during Monroe's acting training days at the Actors Studio. One speculates that such a photo session was assembled to introduce Marilyn as a more serious, character-driven actress post-method acting training.

    Marilyn Monroe and the Actors Studio

    It's ironic just how desperate 20th Century-Fox was to keep Marilyn on their rooster. One commentator said that Monroe was Fox's "biggest commodity since Shirley Temple", although I'd liable to say that Betty Grable was more than a mere stepping stone between Temple in the '30s and Monroe in the...

    Marilyn Monroe: The Early Days

    LET'S MAKE IT LEGAL is by no means stellar, but it's good on that 'Marilyn movie' basis. It's definitely not among the best of Claudette Colbert or Zachary Scott, or even Barbara Bates for that matter. They've all done better elsewhere. I've seen nothing else of Macdonald Carey and I've never...

    The Western Thread

    For a clichéd response, I'd say one of my favorite Westerns is McLINTOCK!, the 1963 Western comedy rendition of Shakespeare's THE TAMING OF THE SHREW. It stars John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in their fourth of five film pairings. The film also features Yvonne DeCarlo and Patrick Wayne. McLINTOCK...

    King of the Hill

    Okay so some fan made their own displays of what a Blu-ray release of KING OF THE HILL could possibly look like. I thought they looked pretty good. They fit with the spirit of the show too.

    Marilyn Monroe: The Early Days

    Let's liven this thread up a little, shall we? I've always had a fondness for LET'S MAKE IT LEGAL, the 1951 B-movie comedy starring Claudette Colbert, Macdonald Carey, and Zachary Scott. It features newcomers Barbara Bates and Robert Wagner in smaller, supporting roles. Marilyn as a small role...

    The Lana Turner Thread

    "It's a load of bull." Lana denying any animosity between her and Jane Wyman.

    The Western Thread

    Westerns have been around since the birth of cinema. They have been one of the most popular forms of entertainment for over a century. Westerns cluttered the film and television landscape for 25-plus years. Like with all types of movies, I usually like Westerns depending on who is in them...

    The Sizzling Jane Russell

    Wasn't Jane Russell in another of these types of interviews about Old Hollywood 'class' and 'glamour'? I think Jane Powell was apart of the group discussion as well. I think that was also apart of the Dinah Shore talk show.

    The Sizzling Jane Russell

    @Crimson did you watch WACO with Jane Russell and Howard Keel yet?

    Marilyn Monroe: Highlight Edition

    That's precisely what happened I'm sure. Zanuck was a jerk and he always wanted to put Marilyn 'in her place', that's why he brought in Sheree North and Jayne Mansfield to 'threaten' her. SHOW BUSINESS is a high-profile dud. Marilyn's performance is the only thing that elevates it, and like...

    Marilyn Monroe: Highlight Edition

    As much as I enjoy MOVE OVER, DARLING -- the re-branded version of SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE with Doris Day -- I still long for the world where Marilyn didn't pass and finished the film. She was beautiful in the footage we have of it. She looked considerably younger than her 35-36 years, with her...

    Marilyn Monroe: Highlight Edition

    I remember being so annoyed when I first watched IRVING BERLIN'S THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS for the first time. You're nearly 30 minutes into the movie before Marilyn shows up, but yet she receives third billing below Ethel Merman and Donald O'Connor, but yet over Dan Dailey and...

    Marilyn Monroe: Highlight Edition

    I've always had a fondness for how Marilyn looked during production of SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE in 1962. She had lost about 20 pounds or better -- therefore reaching the lowest weight of her adult life -- for the role. In the makeup tests and what footage was shot of this film, she looks...

    Marilyn Monroe: Highlight Edition

    I think BUS STOP is a good movie, especially since it is atypical of Monroe's other vehicles. Like THE MISFITS, it is a more straight piece, despite its few musical numbers and comedic moments. I believe it proved Monroe a stronger actress than she had been dismissed as not being. The film...
