Howse about a pictorial history on FRANCO NERO, si’l vous plait.
What an education…and what amazing photographs!
THE CORPORATION, co-created by Mark Achbar and based on the best selling book by Joel Bakan, an emient law professor and legal theorist , is a most vital film for our time. The Corporation” The Pathological Pursuit of Power is a documenatary film featuring some of the top sociopolitical analysts and activists of our time, from Howard Zinn to Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore to Vandana Shiva. The film offers brilliant commentary on our world situation today, explaining in dramatic detail and on-the-spot dramatic and real footage, the horrible effects of the global corporate state that now supersedes the nation state in setting the economic agenda for the entire globe. It demonstrates the far reaching power of multinational corporations to rule the destinies of all of us Earthlings while keeping everyone a slave of the profit motive above all humane concerns. The film is available on Netflex and on DVD as well as on the internet through file sharing and has been seen my millions around the globe. It’s a must-see for anyone who wishes to understand the world order of our current planetary society.
Guys the mystery man for 9/20/2011 is none other than Preston Foster… “on the Waterfront”…
fellas, The Duke starred with Vera Ralston in the Fighting Kentuckians, a Republic comedy (co-starring Oliver Hardy) in 1949… was the “clause” after this and what happened?
sorry Mike, we don’t know what happened. but he’d made 2 pix with her and probably figured he’d payed his dues.
Joe, your “Gable & Lombard & Powell & Harlow” book is currently up for sale at eBay, so I took the opportunity to promote both the book and this site in my most recent entry: http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/478544.html. Continued success.
The production company for Marion Davies was,Cosmopolitan.
You are right. But Mike Sheridan answered the question first. Try again in the next “Hearst” quiz.
This may be too late to do any good, but could the film the woman was remembering seeing as a child be “The Uninvited” with Ruth Hussey and Ray Milland? (The plot she mentioned was about a girl who talked to a ghost and the house later burned down and fell into the sea). I just discovered your website through the blog roll at “Thrilling Days of Yesteryear.” It’s marvelous! It’s great fun to read–but plays heck with my productivity. Thank you both for the love and effort you put into your work
I love this blog! Please make Hedy Lamarr your Star of the Week one of these days- I absolutely adore her, and I’d get such a kick out of seeing her being appreciated for once!
Your website is very entertaining and I’ve enjoyed reading it. I’ve worked in the biz for quite a number of years and will look for some photos. I worked with Melville Shavelson, Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, Roseanne, etc., but my favorites of all are the classic movie stars. I’m an expert on the careers of Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. I knew Fred and Adele Astaire. Some of your contributors are people I used to know in NYC years ago, such as Lou Valentino. We used to go to screenings all over town with Bill Everson, Herb Graff and my good friend John Cocchi. Best wishes, Maureen
hello, what a great site. Lots of fun.
I looked up Tyrone Power and was thrilled that you mentioned the Hollywood Museum exhibit. I was invited to the opening, and it was amazing.
However, Power’s three children contributed very little to it.
The main contributors were Debbie Beno (my friend) and Maria Ciaccia. I believe she appears on both Power box sets in the special features. Debbie also collects on Carole Lombard and Alan Ladd, and costume sketches. She has many costumes from several movies, not necessarily of just those actors. Some are on display in a huge glass case in her home.
