I love everything about the series, including Penny. I know that she was predictable, but she always made me laugh when she said, "Poor Jean!" :)

Yes, in fact they starred in one lousy film together in 1955 before they both soon left MGM, a musical about Hannibal called Jupiter's Darling.

Howard had one more musical, Kismet, and then...

I did mention it earlier in this thread, but for anyone who missed it, I stood up, shaking in my shoes and asked her if she ever wanted to be a director.

She thought for a minute, and then said,...

Me too, especially as I was there and plucked up the nerve to ask her a question.

I haven't seen the full interview since it was last shown in December 1972.

I never did understand how Taylor won an Oscar for playing herself in Virginia Woolf. All she needed was some padding and a wig, and then be her usual loud and vulgar self, which didn't exactly...

Looking at that scary pic of him I would bet on Angela outliving him

Considering that she is more than 20 years older she looks a hell of a lot healthier than he does. ;-)

Bette Davis repeated tomorrow, if anyone missed it the first time it is one of the best in the series. It is followed by Now Voyager, which after All About Eve is my favourite of all her films. :)

You may also have confused her with Hermione Baddeley, they appeared in at least two films together, No Room at the Inn, and Time Gentlemen Please.

RIP Dora Bryan

Sad to hear of the death of the multi talented Dora Bryan at the age of 91. She died in a Hove nursing home, her two sons were at her bedside.

So sad, another link to my childhood gone, she seemed to in just about every other film that I saw in the 1940's.

RIP Dora, and thanks for the happy memories.

I don't know any of these new names, and can't say that I want to. I am happily stuck in the 1940's, 50's and '60's, and have enough Classic films on tape and disc to last me for the rest of my life....
