   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  "With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent."

Can you name the fairly recent film and the lead actor?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Just because I loved this film and I think Tom Hanks may never have turned in a better performance. The trailer for "Big".

   StormCnter  Oh, I would believe it, Gram, because I have never seen "Casablanca" or "Titanic". I tried to find a link to the full movie of "Big", but it's apparently not available for free. You should see it. Tom Hanks really does make us think he's just a boy on that man's body.

   BirdsNest  You are right Storm, it is one of his best-ever roles. The movie made us smile. Gram you really need to see it.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  Have you ever gotten midway into a book and found missing pages? I was at page 88 in "His Bloody Project", a finalist for the Booker Man prize and a book that has gotten rave reviews, when I realized the next 20 pages were missing. I spent 24.99 for that novel at Barnes & Noble and I was furious. My first email to B&N got a form response about their 14-day return policy. I had purchased the book along with 14 others at the end of December. However, my second email to B&N's customer service got a promise to send another copy of the book and a return label. So, I was satisfied. BTW, I also wrote to the publisher to tell them about their disappointing messup.

   StormCnter  Update: The publisher emailed the missing pages, said it was aware of a problem in the "third printing", apologized, and is sending me a replacement book.

   Gram77  This is Pidgeon and Garson and a huge guess for the movie.....Mrs. Miniver???

   StormCnter  Bingo for Gram! The rest of us can put our cards away. "Mrs. Miniver" was the Best Picture of 1942.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  One of my L-Dotter correspondents and I have been having some fun recasting big films. The conversation started when we agreed other actresses would have fit the Scarlett O'Hara role better than Vivien Leigh. My big miscasting complaint about "Gone With the Wind" was 45 year old Leslie Howard playing early-twenties Ashley Wilkes. Others who tested for the role included Randolph Scott, Franchot Tone and Vincent Price. Tone was also a little too old (34 ), but I think he might have been perfect. Anyone else have an opinion about this film or miscasting in any other big movie?

   MeiDei  Well, I liked LH in GWTW, he had a kind face & I was a kid when I saw it years later ; ) As for miscasting - Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia!

   StormCnter  I read an article not long ago about how the casting crew at GWTW wanted a man who offered a sharp contrast with "burly" Clark Gable.

   Gram77  I think I remember that the hunt for Scarlet was given to a quite a few actresses before Vivien Leigh was chosen.

   StormCnter  Paulette Goddard was supposed to get the part, but obviously didn't. You might enjoy this 9 minute video of the various screen tests.

   BirdsNest  I thought LH was a bit bland and way boring. Kind of like todays parakeet male.

   GO3  Going to a newer movie, I thought the Spiderman series starting in 2002 was miscast with both leads. Tobey McGuire as Spiderman and Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane were bad choices IMO. I guess you had to have been a fan of the comic, but to me they were boring and dense.

   StormCnter  Worst casting runner-up goes to Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves". Sheesh!

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  We did this a year or so ago and Wall visitors enjoyed it. Do you have an event associated with a movie in your life? A film that triggers a memory?

Any mention of "Giant" brings a remembrance of how much my Texas rancher grandmother hated the author's book and then the movie that resulted. When I have watched "Giant" again over the years, my enjoyment is influenced by my grandmother's prejudice.

"The Searchers", which was part of a quiz farther down the page, opened a twin drive-in in Fort Worth. I saw it with a buddy who'd been (and still is ) my best male friend. We were 15. That big drive-in is now long gone, but the memory of opening night persists.
