    Karloff vs. Lugosi

    Which "Master of Horror" do you prefer? Most agree that Boris Karloff is the more versatile actor, while Bela Lugosi suffered a limited career because of his typecasting as a vampire. Even so, the film versions of DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN (both 1931) were fundamental in bringing horror films...

    Tired Old Queen at the Movies

    Anyone else watch these videos from Steve Hayes on YouTube? I once watched them a lot, but I stopped for a really long time. I recently rediscovered them and I've been watching them a lot the past three or four days. Some of his videos are around 10 years old, but I still enjoy watching them...

    Sheree North: "Taking Over from Monroe"

    Sheree North was signed to 20th Century-Fox in 1954. The studio had hired her primarily as a threat to Marilyn Monroe, their biggest, but temperamental star and box office draw. After Monroe balked at starring in THE GIRL IN PINK TIGHTS, North was snatched up from the theatre and given a...

    The Bold and the Beautiful Stephanie & Sally

    Sometimes I like watching the YouTube videos out there concerning Stephanie Forrester and Sally Spectra. Their on-screen banter is priceless, and Sally has simply got to be one of the most flamboyant soap opera characters there's ever been. I just like their videos:

    BUtterfield 8 vs. Breakfast at Tiffany's

    There was a discussion going here (I forgot which one) where a member (I believe it was Snarky) that spoke about BUTTERFIELD 8 and BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, two of Tinseltown's upper-class hooker tales. BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S has a fairly big fandom these days, although primarily with...

    Classic European Film Stars

    I was thinking about some Old Hollywood-style European movie stars today. I don't think we've discussed the likes of Sophia Loren or Gina Lollobrigida here a lot, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to initiate this conversation and see where it leads us. Loren and Lollobrigida each found success in...

    Dame Angela Lansbury

    Okay I've been on this Angela Lansbury kick the past week or two. I've never really been a major fan of her work before now, but she's definitely growing on me at a rapid speed. Of course, I've always been quite aware of MURDER, SHE WROTE, and I love that show with a passion, but I've never been...

    Beyond Bad: The Ed Wood Thread

    Ed Wood was a filmmaker known for making some movies considered some of the worst films ever made. These movies include GLEN OR GLENDA (1953), BRIDE OF THE MONSTER (1955), and PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959). His movies drifted into oblivion before he was awarded the title of "Worst Director of...

    Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor

    I know there's a discussion going about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, but I'd say Miss Taylor is worthy of her own discussion, right? Elizabeth Taylor is one of the most iconic and famous film actresses in movie history. She was a contract for close to 20 years, spanning from 1942 to...

    Caproni's Thoughts on The Colbys

    I've got my set of THE COLBYS in and I watched the first episode yesterday. What better way to watch the series than to couple it with a thread full of opinions here? This won't be an episode-by-episode analysis, but more similar to the thread I've got stirring about ONE TREE HILL (that's been...

    The Mothers-in-Law

    This Desi Arnaz-produced television comedy starred Eve Arden and Kaye Ballard. It aired on NBC from 1967 to 1969, totaling two seasons and 56 half-hour episodes. It was hoped to be something of a spiritual successor to I LOVE LUCY. Placed on Sunday nights at 8:30 between WALT DISNEY'S...

    My Wife Doesn't Like Christmas Movies....

    .... so does anyone have any suggestions on what to share with her? I know this is a little early (we've got four months until Christmas Day), but I wanted to get a head start in picking your brains. On our commute to work this morning, my wife and I were discussing Christmas. My wife loves...

    Poisonous Tongue: The Sable Colby Fan Page

    Stephanie Beacham said Sable was "the best of the baddies" in an interview once. She also said that she knew who Sable was the minute she realized the writers were going to let her be "poisonous with my tongue". I've seen little of THE COLBYS, but what I have seen, I've quite enjoyed. Sable was...

    The Nanny

    So apparently the whole world (according to a social media meme) has decided to re-watch THE NANNY here recently. I've noticed that a lot of my friends online have decided to re-watch the series. I know there are three of the six seasons on Tubi for free streaming, but it probably won't be there...

    Marilyn Monroe's "It" Factor

    I can find any excuse whatsoever to talk about Marilyn Monroe. She single-handedly opened the door to my avid love of old movies and television. It all started from the one wallet-sized photo my brother had pasted on his closet door: the iconic picture of Marilyn in the skin-tight gold lame...
