   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  a 1938 American swashbuckler film directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley, featured a change in the lead actors before filming began. James Cagney was originally cast in the lead, but walked out on his contract with Warner Bros. Stunt men and bit players, padded with balsa wood on metal plates, were paid $150 per arrow for being shot by professional archer who played a minor role in the movie. A major romance developed between the two leads off camera. She moved on, he allegedly never recovered from his love for her.

   Richdet  Basil Rathbone was certainly a handsome bloke, wasn't he? He easily could have been a leading man instead of the villain he typically played, as he did here. I will hold my fire on identifying the movie and leading players so someone else can have the honor.

   Richdet  "Tommy" -- the Who's rock opera. "Pinball Wizard," etc. etc. Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, Jack Nicholson, Tina Turner. Ken Russell directed it. He was a name then too.

   Richdet  Oops. I see I am repeating info given in the clue regarding Ken Russell. No wonder I immediately knew who the director was! Have I just earned today's "Captain Obvious" badge?

   HopeandGlory  I'm going to borrow Gram's limb, since she obviously is still unable to post (we miss you Gram ) and say that it's John Ford.

   StormCnter  Hope has the answer. Yes, it's John Ford, fine director and subject of Mike's foremost authority. Did you know he directed more than 140 films?

I miss Gram, too. I haven't heard from her today, so I don't know the latest.

   MeiDei  Once I got the triple down reference away from a roll-top desk I'm guessing there is a movie titled The Bachelor and the Bobby Socker ??? Well I tried.

   StormCnter  You got the title and don't know if there's a movie to match? Well, there most certainly is and it contains some BIG names: Shnirley Temple, Cary Grant, Rudy Valee, Myrna Loy. It's nice to know you did triple roll down cuffs, too, Mei. Did you also have the required white loafers what had to be re-polished about every five minutes?

Mei gets a dog collar for the triple cuffs. Mine was red. You can have a green one.

   MeiDei  I had penny loafers, sometimes had dimes in them, saddle shoes and "dirty" white bucks. Graduated from "MaryJanes" : )

   StormCnter  One of my life's sorrows is that I couldn't wear saddle oxfords as a young teen. They didn't come in a narrow width and my mother would not allow a misfitting shoe. You were a lucky gal!!

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  A comedy western film that was directed by Frank Perry and released in 1975. The movie is referred to by critics as being "curiously off-center". Jack McKee and Cecil Colson are a couple of young, restless rustlers. Jack has turned his back on his wealthy family and his wife. Cecil is a Native American. Together, more out of boredom than anything else, they have begun rustling cattle, cutting them up with a chainsaw and paying bills with fresh meat in lieu of cash. A memorable scene is the two leads playing Pong in a bar.

   MeiDei  Then is that a young Jeff Bridges? Still thinking about the guy on the right. I think the only movie I saw in '75 was Serpico or the year before.

   StormCnter  You've got Jeff Bridges. The guy on the right might surprise you, but remember the movie is 40 years old. BTW, the movie isn't a keeper.

   Susannah  They sure made her up to look older. In the book, Ellen was 32 and Scarlett was 16.

   StormCnter  I know I've said this before, but I was very unhappy about the casting of Ellen. Barbara O'Neil was so different from what I had imagined. Irene Dunne would have been the right age. But I was unhappy about Leslie Howard (too old ), Alicia Rhett (India Wilkes ). But Gerald O'Hara and Scarlett's sisters were perfect, as was Aunt PittyPat and Melanie. I read that the name Melanie Wilkes was the first name Margaret Mitchell chose for her book and until she researched it, she was unsure whether she could use it.
