    Laurence Olivier was a good looking man when he was young and for that matter he was even good looking as an older man.. They don't make em like that anymore.

    Classic.


    Always liked Wallace Ford.He's my kind of guy.Straight-talking and to the point.
    Somewhat gruff and crusty but then that's what a Grandpa is supposed to be portrayed as.
    I never saw a Wallace Ford movie where he looked young.I think in his early 30's he looked like
    maybe an old father type.
    One Ford movie I'd recommend is : - A Patch of Blue - {1965}
    Ford had a very rough childhood.It shows in his character.Thereby explaining his character
    somewhat in " a Patch ".

    Never Liked Cooper until I read a very distinguished Film Critic make the point that
    there were basically only 2 actors in movies that were perfect for the camera.
    That just were automatic when it came time for any shoot.As far as profile and
    overall camera presence.One was Gary Cooper and other was Marilyn Monroe.
    It got me to thinking.I never viewed another Cooper role in the same light.
    I think I might have been too easily swayed by big talking actors,Cooper,like
    Steve McQueen aren't big talkers.I still like those big talkers,however.
    Nothing better than a Wallace Beery or a Marie Dressler.
    On that note one of my alltime favorite movies is ... :
    - Dinner at Eight - I adored the entire cast.

    The very crotch of the Tri-State area. Where Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia slap together. There used to be four great old movie palaces in town, not there are only two screens in the entire county!

    Scene that changed my life: Nice!

    Thinking about that I'd have to say Sidney Portier slapping the old school racist in right in the greenhouse in In the Heat of the Night.


    Best moral? Delivered by Spencer Tracy in Inherit the Wind

    The line that still chokes me up? "To my big brother George! The richest man in town!" It's a Wonderful Life

    Favorite film (my 'go to' if nothing else tickles my fancy: Lawrence of Arabia or The Godfather

    Favorite director? Frank Capra or, if feeling pretentious, Stanley Kubrick. But I'm a sucker for Hal Ashby, Robert Altman, William Wyler and John Ford.

    Favorite actor? James Stewart

    I've never considered best credits, but Saul Bass did a great job on North by Northwest.

    Best comedy? Modern: The Big Lebowski classic Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House.

    In my opinion, the 50s and 60s were the golden age of film...
    Sweet schadenfreude...

    Classic.

    How about the sceen when the freaks crawl through the under brush and 'transform' the haughty (*)(*)(*)(*)(*) into the "Duck Woman"?! If I could have watched Tod Browning direct his actors and camera men, it would have been facinating!
