   StormCnter  His 1959 autobiography, "My Wicked Wicked Ways," was originally to be called "In Like Me." Based on that clue, who is he?

   MeiDei  Vanessa Redgrave as Elizabeth I - not sure about the movie but I think her daughter Joely Richardson was also in it.
5 hours ago .


   StormCnter  Yes she is and yes, Joely is in it, too. the film is "Anonymous". Mei is awarded one of the Virgin Queen's lacy handkerchiefs, rumored to be one Essex kissed and returned to her.

   StormCnter  2000 film. I found this on a "Most Overrated" list. Have you seen it?

   MeiDei  She's Sandra Bullock I think.

   Gram77  There was one funny thing in this movie and that was when they got together and did their impression of a soap opera. Otherwise a complete waste of time for all those actors.

   StormCnter  There are still some unanswered quizzes, so I'll be back in a bit to see if we need more. I hope everyone's day is going well. Here in my area, the rain is holding off for a little while, thank goodness. But, I understand it will be back later today.

   StormCnter  1980 film: The Jarretts are an upper-middle-class family in suburban Chicago trying to return to normal life after the death of one teenage son and the attempted suicide of their surviving son, Conrad. Conrad has recently returned home from a four-month stay in a psychiatric hospital. He feels alienated from his friends and family and begins seeing a psychiatrist, Dr. Berger. Berger learns that Conrad was involved in a sailing accident in which his older brother, Buck, whom everyone idolized, died. Conrad now deals with post-traumatic stress disorder and survivor's guilt.

   Gram77  Moore and Hutton. Not shown, Sutherland and Hiisch. Movie is Ordinary People. Excellent movie and I think an Oscar went to someone but can't be sure.

   StormCnter  Timothy Hutton was the youngest actor to win a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for this role. He was 20. Gram knew her stuff. That cardigan on Mary Tyler Moore's shoulders appears to be cashmere, Gram. Let's pluck it right off so you can have it for chilly Florida evenings.

   StormCnter  David Lobosco has written a series of books and articles and maintains a show-businessy website. I found this on his list of "Most Overrated Actresses". What do you think?
"I know having Audrey Hepborn on an overrated list is going to get me in trouble with movie fans everywhere. What was her appeal? I did not think she was beautiful - not to be rude, but she was kind of ugly. She made a lot of interesting movies ,and Hepburn has risen to such ultra stardom, but I do not understand why. She won an Oscar for "Roman Holliday" in 1953, and I do not think the movie role warranted an Oscar. I guess some people like the waif type beauty that Audrey Hepburn had, but her looks did not last, and I do not think her acting ability warranted legendary status either."

   Gram77  I'm not sure I totally agree, however, what you say is certainly something to consider. Personally I like opinions. What a dull world it would be it everybody just said "okay, whatever you say".

   StormCnter  Rich usually has very different opinions on some of these "overrated" or "worst" lists. As you said, Gram, we're all entitled to our opinion. I'm trying to remember a film that Audrey Hepburn impressed me in (bad grammar, I know ). "Wait Until Dark", maybe?
7 hours ago .


   MeiDei  Well I disagree with him, I thought her beautiful & charming - even in her elder years. She carried herself well & I loved her fashion style - something I carry with me today. It's a man's opinion and aside from acting abilities he's probably into the more endowed actresses i.e., Russell, Loren, Andress : ) In other words, she's not one of the plastic people.
