and misspelling her NAME...
(I swear I tried 6 times and it never looked right
cause I suck at spelling).....
only to have TA DA, AyaK know all about her and post it
correctly here for all to enjoy. YEAH, my bad; lazy, that is (hehe).
<<<"ahhh, you can't get away with this on this board, Dalton
--- you know better!
First, I think you're talking about Gloria GRAHAME.">>>......
and you are off to the races. And you do it so much better!!!
AyaK...read my other "Worse Ten" thread on OT esp..."I don't work here...."
Seriously...MOVIES are a ladies family tradition with me. My
Grandmothers were movie nuts. I said I was taught to sit still and be quiet for two hours by age 3....more by movies than church!! Once, truth, my GrandMa made all of us leave the
theatre during "Elmer Gentry" (Burt Lancaster/Shirley Jones)
because SHE thought God might strike the building w/a thunderbolt. I can't remember how old I was before I ever
saw the END of Elmer Gentry. LOL.
I looked @Faye D.
as a replacement Gloria Grahame...sigh; very disappointed.
And while you explained many of her "great" roles...Dalton
realllly loved Gloria as the tuftalking, scheming bad girl
who trusted no one....she did it better than "Lana", imo.
Comments....the J. Stewart role you mentioned....shhh, that
same Outer Mask/Inner Demons is the first impression my mind
formed of our resident bigshoes (only younger) shhh...
And....OMG...YES! I thought *I* had personally discovered
the next Richard Widmark when Lee Marvin threw the hot coffee
in her face. Oh Wow...I went around telling everybody about
And to Minstrel....I was narrowly refering to B Movies which
fit the "Film Noir" catagory. Many great actors did or were
contractually forced to do "B Movies". Some of Robert Mitchem's best work was just before he hit it big. And many B Movies were interesting because of the former "A" actors who were reduced
to doing parts in them, etc. etc.
Ooops, we've done gone and turned this thread on tilt.
