   GO3  For Mei: I ran across this 2009 broadcast covering the death of Richard Todd. It gives a brief history of the man and his military service. It's a short, but emotional tribute.

   MeiDei  Thank you for that!

   StormCnter  She's the daughter of a very big star father and a fairly big star mother. Who is she?

   MeiDei  Who (actor and/or character ) said it - in what 1992 movie

“You’re just jealous ’cause I’m a genuine freak and you have to wear a mask”.

   StormCnter  One actor shaved his head for this film and kept it shaved for the rest of his life. It was another major actor's final film. The actor playing the lead role said the hardest part about playing (this person ) was the expectations people had of him to remain in character at all times. He could not smoke between takes, have a drink after work, or be affectionate with his wife on the set. The young woman who played the major female role became pregnant during filming. The director worked around this by shooting her from the chest up as much as possible, making her later scenes markedly unlike the earlier ones. The cinematographer suffered a heart attack, collapsed and died on the set. Three of the major actors went on to play the James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in later films.
What was this movie?

   GO3  I'd say the one who kept his head shaved was Telly Savalas. The other two would be Donald Pleasance and Charles Gray. No idea what the movie is.

   GO3  In some circles, she's known as the Queen of Film Noir. She's of Slovakian descent and started off as the understudy to Tallulah Bankhead on Broadway. She was also a model for the Walter Thornton Agency. Thanks to producer Hal Wallis, she eventually signed with Paramount, but was loaned out to other studios as well. Her third film with Humphrey Bogart established her as the typical femme fatale in the genre. Later she campaigned for Ronald Reagan three times in his political career.

Personal quote on film noir: "The films that I had seen growing up were always, 'Boy meets girl, boy ends up marrying girl, and together, they go off into the sunset' - and suddenly in the 1940s, psychology was taking a grasp on society in America. That's when 'they' got into these psychological, emotional things that people feel. That was the feeling of film noir. ... It was a new realm, something very exciting, because you were coming closer and closer to reality."
