   MeiDei  2007 film

"Hudson Milbank is convinced that he's going insane. But he's just met the perfect girl and struggles to be his most charming self. Meanwhile, he frantically seeks a cure for his anxieties and goes through a string of therapists who turn out to be crazier than him."

   StormCnter  He was a comedian, composer, songwriter, author and trombonist, educated in high school, then a trombonist with the Columbia Symphony (1931-1936 ). He was a member of the Bob Hope radio program, and appeared in many films. Not all of the Hope show gags worked, however: during one Christmas broadcast, he played an obnoxious Santa. The gag ended with Bob shooting Santa Claus just moments before the end of the show. Telegrams and letters flooded the network from parents who didn't see the humor, and Lever Brothers even considered ending Pepsodent's association with Old Ski Nose, but the furor died down when this actor appeared in his regular role the next week.
Who was he?

Yesterday at 09:07 EST .

   StormCnter  A Best Actress Oscar for her role in "The Rose Tattoo". I saw it and wasn't swept away, but it was certainly the movie and the role of the year.
Yesterday at 11:22 EST .

   MeiDei  2016 film
The biographical drama of Scribner editor, Max Perkins, his working & personal relationship with Thomas Wolfe as well as brief glimpses of his business and social life with writers Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Loaded cast.

   Saturday at 09:45 EST .

   Richdet  Caught maybe the last half of this on cable last winter. I think I was wrapping Christmas gifts, one eye on the tv. Put the tv on to get my mind off my task. And here this was. Had no idea this movie existed; I guess it snuck out when my back was turned. Don't know the title. Colin Firth is on the left as Perkins. Jude Law is Wolfe. Nicole Kidman (who is in everything now ) and Laura Linney are also in it.
Saturday at 16:41 EST .

   MeiDei  All correct so far. The movie is "Genius" Guy Pearce was Fitzgerald; he and the two gals were familiar but unrecognizable to me, I was too caught up in the drama I guess or too sleepy to care. : ) This was an unheard of film to me also, but I like Firth & Law so I stuck with it.
On the whole I found it well done.
Saturday at 17:37 EST .

   StormCnter  Final line of what fllm?
"Right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce and I got egg noodles and ketchup. I'm an average nobody. I get to live the rest of my life like a schnook."
Saturday at 07:19 EST .

   MeiDei  I haven't a clue, but I'll go out on a limb with this:
sounds like something Joe Pesci or Danny DeVito would say.
Saturday at 12:12 EST .

   StormCnter  One of those was in the film, yes.
Saturday at 15:36 EST .

   StormCnter  Goodfellas
Yesterday at 09:30 EST .

   StormCnter  A man with an asthmatic voice telephones bank clerk Kelly Sherwood at home and coerces her into helping him steal a large sum from her bank.
   Saturday at 07:17 EST .

   StormCnter  The guy in the photo surprised me. His face is pretty familiar from television, but I couldn't recognize him here.
Saturday at 15:40 EST .

   Richdet  Movie title is "Experiment in Terror," very effective suspense movie. Lee Remick plays the woman in peril, Glenn Ford the hero. Bad guy played by Ross Martin -- couple years later he started his long run as sidekick on "Wide Wide West." Saw this in a drive-in -- the title lured us in.
Saturday at 16:36 EST .

   Richdet  That's Ross Martin in the picture. He finds many ways to menace Lee Remick, and invade her security, this disguise being one. Couple years later she starred in "Wait Until Dark" on Broadway, and scored a big hit with that too. Very effective as the Damsel in Distress.
Saturday at 16:53 EST .

   MeiDei  I saw Lee in WUD, excellent performance by her and Harry Guardino (he managed to get the audience to gasp ).
Saturday at 17:41 EST .

   StormCnter  Rich penetrates the disguise and names Ross Martin and the film. I haven't seen it, but it sounds as if it's one I would like. .
