Released Date: July 22, 1964
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Actors: Tippi Hedren, Sean Connery, Diane Baker, Martin Gabel, Louise Latham, and Bob Sweeney

     Alfred Hitchcock had always wanted Grace Kelly to do a great come back after becoming Princess of Monaco. This film was one of the movies he had wanted her come back movie to be. He believed that Tippi Hedren looked a lot like Grace Kelly, and even though he was rejected by Miss Hedren, he decided that she would be great for the part. Tippi Hendren made it known that during this movie is when her and Hitchcock ended their friendship, even though during The Birds he made it known to Tippi that he would ruin her movie career since she denied him, simply her. This is composer Bernard Hermann's last score for Hitchcock. Hermann always did an amazing job with Hitchcock.

     Marnie Edgar (Tippi Hedren) is a daughter. She does not know her father and had a difficult childhood. She, as an adult owns five different drivers license. Marnie jumps from job to job, she leaves a job because she ends her careers by pulling jobs. She steals money from her bosses and then switches jobs within the week. And ends up stealing money again. We follow her to Rutland's. A very well to do company. The big boss, Mark Rutland (Sean Connery) wants to help his new employer. He is aware of her problem and wants to save her from getting into big trouble. She could go to jail, but when he decides that marriage would be ideal for her, we see what her childhood brought to her adult in terms of fears. She is afraid of the color red, and is afraid of men. Mark Rutland saves Marnie from her fears and also her criminal ways.

     This is not one of Alfred Hitchcock's greater known movies, but I do enjoy it. The movie is based around horses too, which is a huge love of mine. I enjoy animals of all types. Alfred Hitchcock is simply, The Man. He knows how to keep his audience to their toes.

Hello People :) I have been out because of back surgery. I had two herniated/ruptured disks. The Doctor had to go in and take out the disks and put in cadaver bones and also fuse the disks together. They did the surgery in two parts and one through from the stomach and back. If you ever need surgery or anything, just remember that having a great outcome comes from a great mind set. Just think of a great outcome. And exercise is the most important thing to keep up. I went home three days after my second surgery because of exercise and thinking good thoughts. :) I will be back on soon to write more movies. Probably tomorrow or the next day, to be more exact. But I just wanted to let you guys know :) I have had a good recovery so far. But it will still take some time for me to get better. Sorry for the wait. I'll be back soon with great movies and actors and actresses.

The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer

The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer
Released Date: September 1, 1947
Director: Irving Reis
Actors: Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Shirley Temple, Rudy Vallee, Ray Collins, Harry Davenport, Johnny Sands, Don Beddoe, Veda Ann Borg, and Lillian Randolph

     Cary Grant had a very tough childhood. While he was growing up, his parents fought all the time. And it was usually about Grant, who's real name was Archibald Leach. They fought a lot about his piano playing. Mostly because it cost money to buy the piano, and then to take lessons was a new fight. Young Cary thought it was his fault, maybe his entire life, the reason his parents left him. But by the time he was nine years old, his father left the family, and started a whole new family. His mother stayed at home for a while, and then one day when Cary got home from school, she was not there. Family told him that she had moved away. Then shortly after, to keep him from finding out the real truth, they told him she had died. Upset, hurt and scared he asked his father if he could live with him and his new family. His father told him no. So Cary Grant then had to go on and work and provide for himself. At fourteen, he lied about his age, forged his dad's signature and joined a comedy group called Bob Pender's troupe. His mother was really in a mental institution. He saw his mother again when he was in his late twenties. But look at where he ended up, famous, handsome and rich. He ended up fine, but had a lot of trouble getting to happiness.

     Richard Newton (Cary Grant), is a handsome, smart and funny artist, who seems to get in all sorts of scrapes. He is literally the victim. And cannot seem to be at the right spot and the right time to save his life. Even in his own home. When Richard ends up in court over a fight at a bar, he is released due to the fact that everyone was involved. The judge that made the final call is Judge Turner (Myrna Loy), whom Newton finds attractive. Newton lets Judge Turner know that he is to give a lecture that morning at a high school. Judge Turner has a sister that is in high school, and she will be at the lecture. Judge Turner did not figure this out till later on. Susan Turner (Shirley Temple) is the Bobby-Soxer. She is a young lady, in high school, who has lots of boyfriends and a pretty busy life. She goes to the lecture with her "boyfriend" and ends up falling head over heels for Newton. When she ends up going to his house to be the next model for him, Newton ends up going to jail and put into court once again. This time, he is told that he has to date Miss Susan Turner for a while, till Susan is over him. This movie is very fun, funny and smart. I was very pleased with the whole movie. It is, in a word, cute. Shirley Temple is a young woman in this movie, and not the young little girl with curly hair that everyone remembers.

12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men
Released Year: 1957
Director: Sidney Lumet
Actors: Martin Balsam, John Fiedler, Lee J. Cobb, E.G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Edward Binns, Jack Warden, Henry Fonda, Joseph Sweeney, Ed Begley, George Voskovec, Robert Webber, and John Savoca

     Henry Fonda and James Stewart were best friends. They met at a young age, with the same life goals. To be an actor. They had the same interests with airplanes. And they even loved the same girl. James Stewart had been in love with his on and off costar, Margaret Sullavan. Henry Fonda ended up marrying her. But they remained friends till death.

     A young man, a boy, is accused of murder. His outcome, if found guilty is death. Now how would you handle a situation like that? You're asked to be a part of the jury. And there is this kid that is accused of murdering his dad, and if you say guilty, he would have to die? Juror number 8 (Henry Fonda) was not ready to say guilty. He wanted to talk about it first. But Juror number 3 (Lee J. Cobb) was ready to say guilty. Just because the evidence was clear. The cool thing about this movie is watching the entire case unfold. You don't see the actual trial, and you hear is what the 12 angry men sit and discuss for the entirety of the film. The whole movie is rather cool. And the fact that you can unravel evidence and make what seems so true and turn it into just a witnesses mistake, is so amazing. Not everyone on trial is guilty, but you can take a million pieces of evidence and make them out to be a horrible person. When in reality, they could have been at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

Cape Fear

Cape Fear
Released Date: April 12, 1962
Director: J. Lee Thompson
Actors: Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum, Polly Bergen, Lori Martin, Martin Balsam, Jack Kruschen, Telly Savalas, and Barrie Chase

     This movie has been remade, and as a matter of fact, the originals, Peck and Mitchum are in the remake. The movie did not do well at the box office, however, now it is very well known and shown on TCM a lot. This film has a lot of suspense and also is about something that most women are afraid of.

     Max Cady (Robert Mitchum) was arrested and put in jail a few years ago. For forcing himself on a woman. The man who went before the court to go against Cady, was Sam Bowden (Gregory Peck), who happens to be a lawyer. Now Cady is out of jail and has decided to go pay Bowden a visit. Now mind you, Cady has a record of unwanted force on a woman, and Bowden is a married man with a teenage daughter. Scary? Yes! Cady has no heart and is not afraid to get revenge. This movie put me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film, and even after. Even though this movie did not do well at first, it definitely has proven itself throughout time. 

Mrs. Miniver

Mrs. Miniver
Release Date: December 1, 1942
Director: William Wyler
Actors: Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Teresa Wright, Dame May Whitty, Reginald Owen, Henry Travers, Henry Wilcoxon, and Richard Ney

     This movie follows the Miniver family. They live in England during WWII. They go to church every sunday, try their best to survive against bombs and being caught under the light of search officers in the air. The eldest son of the family joins the Air Force, and also falls in love with a very rich woman's granddaughter. The rich woman is the winner every year for a rose competition.

The Children's Hour

The Children's Hour
Release Date: December 19, 1961

     Karen Wright (Audrey Hepburn), and Martha Dobie (Shirley MacLaine) met at the age of 17, while starting off in college. Now, as bright young women, they are lead teachers at a private school. The school is also a boarding house too. Karen becomes engaged during the first part of the movie, to the popular in town Dr. Joe Cardin (James Garner). Martha's aunt also works for the school and teaches elocution. They have a student, her name is Mary, and she is a conniving little liar. She is a bully in the school and is also over dramatic. After one of her outbreaks, Mary's friends over hear a conversation between Martha and her aunt. They turn what they hear into a wild story, that makes them lose all of their students, and a lot of other things too. This movie is very controversial for its time. But very well made. And you cannot go wrong with Audrey Hepburn.

Pat And Mike

Pat And Mike
Released Date: June 13, 1952
Director: George Cukor
Actors: Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Aldo Ray, William Ching, Sammy White, George Matthews, Gussie Moran, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Don Budge, Alice Marble, Frank Andrew Parker, Betty Hicks, and Beverly Hanson

     This entire movie is based on athletics. Katharine Hepburn grew up with an older brother that loved sports, and to play them as well. Her father was a huge sports fan too and made sure his children played and got their exercise in everyday. So when Miss Hepburn became pro - like good, she was rather happy. Not only to be great at sports but because it pleased her father as well. This movie shows us her sports ability and there was no stunt double for her.

     Katharine Hepburn was great at a lot of sports. Every type of sport she tried, she excelled. But the one sport she was told that she was good enough to go pro, was golf. This movie is about a ladies golf championship. Pat (Hepburn) plays the athlete, who will be trained by Mike (Tracy). She is pushed hard, and even though she does well at golf, for some reason, whenever her fiance is around, she flops. It is almost time for the championship, so now she decides to allow and hire Mike to help her train correctly. And because she is around Mike a lot, and also is being trained and not getting nervous around him when it comes to her favorite sport, she becomes attracted to him. And one other issue, her fiance would rather her become his wife and drop her favorite sport. 

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?
Released Date: October 31, 1962
Director: Robert Aldrich
Actors: Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Victor Buono, Wesley Addy, Julie Allred, Anne Barton, Marjorie Bennett, Maidie Norman, Anna Lee, Dave Willock, and Bert Feed

     Seriously, what in the world happened to Baby Jane? That is one question that will go down in history!!! And the movie was made long ago, you would think that the question would be answered by now. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford had an amazing relationship, full of hate and dislike for each other. Why is that? The name of the movie should have been "Whatever Happened between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford?" Could it have been jealousy? Could it have been a money issue? Maybe a man at one point? Or a job that one wanted. Who knows. But I do know one thing, Bette Davis said that the book written about Joan Crawford, by her daughter was a horrible thing. And that it was absolutely wrong. But then the same thing did happen to Bette Davis. Her daughter wrote a book also. One thing I can honestly say, is that I would never read those books. Out of respect for the women and the fact that the books were written during or before death of the two actors.

     Blanche Hudson (Joan Crawford) was living under the shadows of her child star sister, Baby Jane Hudson (Bette Davis). She watched as her sister got whatever she wanted, and saw as people everywhere bought dolls and every Baby Jane accessory out. Blanche said to her mother in the very beginning of the movie, that she would get her chance one day. Then many years later, Blanche got her stardom in the movies. She became better than Jane, and was more popular. Everyone asked who Baby Jane was, but knew exactly who Blanche was. The only issue was that Blanche was confined to a wheelchair. And Baby Jane, the jealous, alcoholic Baby Jane was, for the most part, taking care of her sister. The other percent of care was done by Elvira Stitt (Maidie Norman). It is also explained early on in the movie that there was a car accident, Jane was driving and Blanche ended up in a wheelchair. So does Blanche get her revenge? How crazy is Baby Jane? Watch as the most creepy film is revealed to you in minutes. And watch as an adult Bette Davis sings a song for a child, in a child like way. If that doesn't catch your attention, just watch to see some of Davis and Crawford's anger come alive in the movie. You won't be upset that you saw it.

Hit The Ice

Hit The Ice
Released Date: June 2, 1943
Director: Charles Lamont
Actors: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Ginny Simms, Patric Knowles, Elyse Knox, Joe Sawyer, and Marc Lawrence

     I have written about Abbott and Costello in the past. And this one happened to be one of my favorites growing up. The classic routines done by the two masters of comedy. Now of course everyone would have a different say. But I consider them the best. I do love the 2000 Year Old Man (Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner) and also Seinfeld.

     This movie follows two men, Flash (Abbott) and Tubby (Costello) as they get into trouble and are forced to follow their old school friend along with a small gang. There is a wonderful comedy routine where Tubby is playing the piano for this girl he is interested in, Marcia (Ginny Simms) and Abbott is sitting behind the piano with a music recorder. And everytime Costello says "Alright", Abbott is to play or stop the recording. There is another scene were Abbott can't make up his mind if they should stay in town or go with their high school friend. Costello gets rather angry and says in a funny but upset voice "why don't you make up your mind?" 

North By Northwest

North By Northwest
Released Date: September 17, 1959
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Actors: Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Jessie Royce Landis, Leo G. Carroll, Josephine Hutchinson, Philip Ober, Edward Platt, and Martin Landau

     Everyone has been mistaken for someone else. That is a part of life. Whether it is that you look like someone, or maybe you just have one of those faces. But can you imagine being mistaken for someone that is not even real? Let me take that one step further, could you imagine being mistaken for someone that not only isn't real but will put your life in danger? This movie is amazing, Alfred Hitchcock directed it, so that would be enough said. But we can throw in the amazing Cary Grant and also James Mason. This movie also takes us to amazing places in America. Like the UN (United Nations) and Mt. Rushmore. This movie is also rather funny because Jessie Royce Landis plays Cary Grant's mother, and she is only seven years older than Mr. Grant.

     North By Northwest begins us following a man, Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant) from a building to a cab and then to lunch with some friends. When he realizes he needs to call his secretary for business, that is when everything goes haywire. Kaplin, Mr. George Kaplin is the name that is called and Thornhill makes the mistake of what looks like answering this call from a bell boy that works at the restaurant. Mr. Thornhill is shown where the telephones are, and then gets himself stuck between two men with guns. Now it is a race of the clock to make these men realize that he is NOT George Kaplin. And what makes that more difficult is that, again, Mr. Kaplin is not even real. And then men that capture him don't believe him. This movie really is a fun and exciting thriller and will keep you on your toes.

     I would naturally say that I love this movie because of the great Alfred Hitchcock and I am also a huge Cary Grant fan. But I would recommend this to anyone that loves fast, exciting movies. :)

It Happened One Night

It Happened One Night
Released Date: February 23, 1934
Director: Frank Capra
Actors: Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Jameson Thomas, Alan Hale, and Arthur Hoyt

     When all the actors that either ended up acting in the film, or just read the parts but ended up turning down the roles they were given. Why? Because they all thought the script was horrible. Some said that it was the worst script they had ever read. And the funny thing about that is, this movie was the first ever to win the Oscar "Grand Slam" which includes: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Screenplay. Eve, Claudette Colbert, who won Best Actress said it was the worst movie she had ever made. And even Clark Gable would turn in for work and say things like "let's just get this over with!"

     This movie follows a young lady, Ellie (Claudette Colbert), who is in love with a man that her father is not 100% happy with. She ends up telling her dad that there is nothing he can do about it, because they are in love. She ends up jumping off of her fathers yacht and swims to safety. The only thing about Ellie is that she is practically royalty and you would not think to look for her on a bus. A regular bus at that, that everyone uses every day. She runs into Peter Warne (Clark Gable), who teaches her to live on her own for a few days. But he not only teaches her life lessons, but he also teaches her love. This movie is truly one of a kind. And it is very funny that the actors did not have any faith that the movie would be successful.

     A lot of Frank Capra movies have a feel good atmosphere to them. Take this movie, It's A Wonderful Life, American Madness, Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, You Can't Take It With You, and Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. 


After The Thin Man

After The Thin Man
Released Date: December 25, 1936
Director: W.S. Van Dyke
Actors: William Powell, Myrna Loy, James Stewart, Elissa Landi, Joseph Calleia, Jessie Ralph, Alan Marshal, and Teddy Hart

     Here is the second movie to the Thin Man Series. Again we follow the beloved Nick and Nora Charles. While a family member of Nora's goes missing, watch Nick help to find his wifes family member's body. Nick's secret to success is that he waits for someone to slip, and he has enough of the information to catch the killer at hand. And no worries, the movie still has the loved dog from the first Thin Man.

     William Powell and Myrna Loy were great friends during their career. Although they shared a romance/marriage in all of the thin man's and also a few other films, they never were romantically involved outside of work. But during this movie, William Powell was engaged to actress Jean Harlow, but when all three ended up going to the same hotel during filming, all the tabloids made the couple out to be Powell and Loy. To keep that rumor out of the papers and magazines, Jean Harlow decided to share a room with Myrna Loy. And they ended up becoming great friends. After the movie was made, Myrna Loy said that was the best decision made, because they had became great friends, and even acted like girls in a boarding house. Staying up late and talking, joking but also having serious conversations. 

Myrna Loy

Myrna Loy was born as Myrna Adele Williams, and born on August 2, 1905 in Radersburg, Montana. And passed away on December 14, 1993 in New York City, New York. She started her movie career right after the end of the silent era. Her profile was the most asked for, from women to their plastic surgeons in the 30s. She recieved the lifetime achievement award and was a favorite to many actors of early cinema. Which includes Jimmy Stewart, and also famous Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. She was outspoken in her dislike for Adolf Hitler and ended up being on his blacklist. She was a Democrat and feminist also. She spent time as an adviser for the National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing. She loved to Sculpt and Dance. She was famous for her roles in The Best Years of Our Lives, The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, The Thin Man Series,, Libeled Lady, The Great Ziegfeld and was also in the very first Cheaper by the Dozen. Her last movie was also the last movie for Henry Fonda. She was an amazing woman and had a wonderful career. She developed Breast Cancer and had to have two vasectomies because of it. Check out her movies and her wonderful acting career. : )

The Thin Man

The Thin Man
Released Date: May 25, 1934
Director: W.S. Van Dyke
Actors: William Powell, Myrna Loy, Maureen O'Sullivan, Nat Pendleton, Minna Gombell, Porter Hall, and Henry Wadsworth

     This movies said Genre is everything. Comedy, Crime, Drama, Mystery and Romance. This is the first Thin Man from the Thin Man series. And it brings alive one of America's favorite married couple, well on screen married couple. William Powell and Myrna Loy. If you don't believe me, ask your grandparents. The Thin Man series includes Powell and Loy, also later on the great James Stewart, a dog (terrier), and humor tagged with crime. The movies have a certain appeal to them and make them very fun to watch. I love the comedy and the fact that they are fast too. Kind of Punk Rock in movie making. Well old movie making.

     We follow the use to be detective Nick (William Powell) and his wife Nora (Myrna Loy) as they solve a crime, along with their dog, Asta (Skippy). They solve the crime because first off, Nora has never seen her husband in action, but that the case is involving an old friend. Watch too as Nick punches his wife in order to keep her from getting shot at. We also have the fun of watching them celebrate Christmas together, and Nick is given a gun which he shoots all of the balloons on their Christmas tree and then shoot their window out. The dog is also rather afraid during the film do to the gun shots. Check out this film and trust me, you'll be going back for more, and I mean the rest of the series.


Here Come The Co-Eds

Here Come The Co-Eds
Release Date: February 2, 1945
Director: Jean Yarbrough
Actors: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Peggy Ryan, Martha O'Driscoll, June Vincent, Bill Stern, Lon Chaney Jr., and Donald Cook

     Bud Abbott and Lou Costello go at it again!!! This was the headline to almost every single movie that they came out with next... And again and again. The team worked wonderfully together, and made Slap-Stick humor amazing. It was said that Bud Abbott got the most money out of the team, due to the fact that he was the serious, straight man of the duo. And we can all imagine how hard his job must have been. I cannot imagine working with Costello and NOT laugh during any skit.

     The movie begins with Bud Abbott, playing Slats McCarthy and Lou Costello as Oliver Quackenbush. They work at dance escorts in the beginning of the film and end up working at an all girls school. Oliver finds love for a woman and basketball. And again, they have laugh out loud comedy skits that will make you fall out of your seat. But watch as Mr. Costello plays basketball (that's right, at the girls school), and also wrestles a huge man. Costello become an athlete when the school is in jeopardy of being shut down. This movie is a little bit of a musical too, which a lot of movies back then had musical numbers in them. So it is not like your regular musical. But the movie is a regular laugh, which you can find in any Abbott and Costello movies. My favorite things in the movie is the way Costello runs with a helmet on, how he tells a joke that every school boy knows, the way Abbott slaps Costello, and also the way Costello says "Positions Girls, Positions!"

Little Giant

Little Giant
Release Date: February 22, 1946
Director: William A. Seiter
Actors: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Brenda Joyce, Jacqueline deWit, George Cleveland, Elena Verdugo, and Mary Gordon

     Lou Costello had a son, a baby son, that died in 1943. The boy had been outside and drowned in the family pool. Grief stricken, and sadden by his loss, Costello had never had the best relationship with his wife after that. There is a book, that I have, and that you can buy online called "Lou's on First" and it is written by Costello's daughter Chris Costello. It explains the whole mess and what happened. But it sounded like Costello blamed his wife, but could not divorce since both were Catholic. Anyway, there is a scene in this film where Costello is thought to be a model and is asked to strip down. You can see a bracelet that has his son's named engraved in it. He had the bracelet welded on him so that it may never be removed.

     This laugh out loud comedy is one of my favorite Abbott and Costello movies. They have a lot of great hit movies, but this one is one of my favorites. The movie includes this amazing skit called "7 x 13 = 28" and when you watch it, you really do believe by the end of it that 7 x 13 is really 28. It makes you laugh and cry due to the amount of laughter you will have during this film. Abbott is great at throwing his partner Costello around. And you can tell they genuinely had a great time together. The movie is about a man Benny Miller (Lou Costello) that graduates with a BS degree, Bachelor of Sales. And moves to another part of his home state. He was from a small town in California and ends up in LA. He ends up at his uncles job by being a door to door salesman. When Benny ends up not selling any Vacuum Cleaners and ends up costing the team a lot of money, he is fired and ends up going to another town but with the same company. Where Benny sells a lot of Vacuum Cleaners in one day. 

Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde
Release Date: August 13, 1967
Director: Arthur Penn
Actors: Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Denver Pyle, and Gene Wilder

     Killers? Check! Robbers? Check! Car Theft? Check! True Story? Check! This movie is based on the real story of Bonnie and Clyde. The movie was done in color, and was a bloody mess. You can see the very car that was shot up (in real life) at The Crime and Punishment Museum in Washington, DC. Although this movie is based on something terrible and not at all sexy, Warren Beatty is easy on the eyes.

     If you have not heard the story of the real Bonnie (Faye Dunaway) and Clyde (Warren Beatty), here is what the movie is about. It starts off with pictures of the real people involved in the crime. Then we see Bonnie in her own home, she looks outside and then BAM, she sees Clyde. Who is handsome and charming. After he tells her that he was in jail, shows her his gun and robs a bank just to show her he knows how to use his gun, the movie sets off in a wild.... Run. Chase. And everything you would see in a crime movie. There was more to the gang than Bonnie and Clyde. You will also see Clyde's brother Buck (Gene Hackman), and also a young boy (16 years old to be exact) by the name of C.W. Moss (Michael J. Pollard). The movie is insanely fast, and educational as well. They get into so much trouble and have the entire USA looking for them. Naturally, they killed not only civilians but police officers as well.
