"The Best Years Of Our Lives" from 1946 with Frederick March and Myrna Loy - an absolutley fantastic look at the adjustments that many WWII veterens had to make after returning home from the war.

I like that movie! Talk about a good one that for some reason is never on! For me, not sure exactly why, it's the Elizabeth Ashley character that stands out!

I think [and that sometime gets me into trouble] that HHH bought up the rights to that movie and the Hughes Company wont release it.....

Smile An old one

When I was 7, I saw part - maybe about 5 or 10 minutes of this movie - it was called Back Street with Susan Hayward. My mother came into the room, told me I should not watch such filth and turned it off and made me go to my room.

I would love to see the whole movie. I never saw it again but thought about it.

Poor Bette! My mother used to call me into the room and pat the sofa next to her. She was a huge movie fan. Plus Back Street had John Gavin whom we were both in love with.

Love Susan Hayward~

If you are an Al Pacino fan:

Panic in Needle Park. 70's film re burgeoning drug culture...he was as astonishing in that role as he is now. His first film in a lead part...

My mom never reacted much - very formal. I'm glad to hear you say something about the movie. I always wondered about it - my mom's reaction made me remember it more than anything.

I'll have to look up John Gavin. Susan Hayward had a home in Fort Lauderdale so whenever she made the news here, there was a write up

I'll look you up when I'm in Newport Beach in September

Anybody like musicals? Not usually my thing; I like music and I like movies, but it's not milk chocolate and peanut butter, is it? They should be kept separate. But a couple that I really dig are..

The Joker is Wild, Frank Sinatra.. life story of Joe E. Lewis

Pal Joey, Frank again, based on the B'dway play that starred Gene Kelly

Here's a taste of both..

"I'll surprise the lady.."


YouTube - ‪Frank Sinatra & Rita Hayworth - The lady is a tramp (Pal Joey)‬‏
