No, but I will when I get a chance. Always liked his movies.
Awww that was my favourite bit too Denise...
Watching 'Double Indemnity' starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck.
This is followed by 'The Big Sleep' with my favorite team, Bogart and Bacall.
You gotta love TCM, got my afternoon planned now...
Ah, the 40's...When men wore 'real' hats, used matches to light those non-filter cigarettes.
Women wore glove going out and ALWAYS a tasteful hat.
You dialed someone on the phone.
Hotels had 'Detectives', and Ex-Cops became 'Private Eyes'.
For entertainment, you listened to the radio or went to the movies.
Wish I had lived during that time.
Now back to the movies...
I did live in those times, and it was great. Except for the war years.
Cape Fear, with Mitchum and Peck. Superb!
Just finished 'Ace in the Hole', a film starring Kirk Douglas and directed by one of my favorites, Billy Wilder.
The film is over 50 years old, but still speaks to what the press can do if left to their own devices.
Douglas is at his best as a reporter who will stop at nothing to keep a story going.
Strong cast, great writing. A treasure from the age of 'story is everything'.
How right you are @Tim Burr
Found it on the web, and 'cast' it from my tablet to the big tv in the living room.
Not as good as seeing it on the 'Big Screen' at a movie house,
but the new multiplexs aren't much better than what you can do at home.
I have never really enjoyed black and white movies, even though that is all that we used to have to watch when I was growing up, at least for the most part. However, I do have one movie that is a favorite B/W movie, and it is a war movie, which I don't even like either.
Nevertheless, the story of Audie Murphy (that was portrayed by Audie himself) in the movie " To Hell and Back" has always been one of those unforgettable movies .
My Dad used to laugh as I cried buckets watching Audie, he died so many times in the movies
Dad would say its only tomato sauce
He was a movie addict, so when I was with him, that's where we would be at the cinema, no TV of course
Audie Murphy was my hero movie star here when I was a girl, @Patsy Faye , and I am pretty sure that I didn't miss any of those great westerns that he starred in. My favorite was the one where he and Jimmy Stewart (also one of my. Favorites) played brothers, with Jimmy Stewart being the lawman and Audie Murphy being the outlaw.
This was probably one of those you cried at the end (just like I did) because he ends up dying in his brother's arms.
It was called "Night Passage".
Until they made the movie about his life in the military, I had no idea that he had served our country in the war, and was the most decorated hero of World War II.
Oh yes I knew - me Dad knew all about the American stars
Audie was a favourite for me as a girl, then I discovered Jimmy Stewart and Gregory Peck
