   MeiDei  Can you name this film star?
   10 minutes ago .

   StormCnter  1984 film: High school sophomore Samantha "Sam" Baker struggles to get through the day on her birthday, which her entire family has forgotten about because her older sister, Ginny, is getting married the next day. She is also plagued by infatuation with a popular and attractive senior, Jake Ryan. At school she fares no better when she finds out that a completed "sex quiz," which she tried to surreptitiously slip to her friend, never reached her friend and, unbeknownst to either of them, was picked up by Jake. Sam panics because the quiz contains sensitive information such as she is a virgin and saving herself for Jake.

   MeiDei  MM & Arthur Miller the playwriter
2 hours ago .

   StormCnter  Yup. You win a link to this People article about Arthur's VERY intimate love letter to Marilyn.
About an hour ago .

   MeiDei  I thought DiMaggio's letter was more loving with his concern for her vs. Miller's lusty one. You'd think someone would have buried the most intimate of these with her rather than for public exposure.

   Susannah  And ultimately, Miller ended up desperate to get away from her.

   MeiDei  My friend's husband is a long-time big fan of this lady. British actress once romantically linked to Ralph Finnes. She has enjoyed a 50-plus year career, spanning seven decades in movies, television and the theater. Her most famous roles are as Lady Macbeth in Roman Polanski's version of Macbeth ('71 ), in which she had a notorious nude sleepwalking scene, and as Kyle MacLachlan's (Paul Atreides ) mother in Frank Herbert's Dune ('84 ). A highly respected performer, in 1979, she won the British Academy Television Award for Best Actress, playing Lily Langtry in the miniseries Lillie ('78 ). She appeared with James Warwick as husband and wife sleuths Tommy and Tuppence Beresford in the television series Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime ('83 ). She also appeared as Jacqueline Kennedy in the television movie Onassis: The Richest Man in the World ('88 ).

   MeiDei  Hope gets the glory for this one. She has two projects this year one is complete & one still in production. I was saddened to see her breakup with Ralph Finnes - the pictures of them together showed pure delight with each other. This too, is a nice photo of her, so keeping with the theme - you get a photo shoot to duplicate the above.

   MeiDei  1995 film (comedy )
The US economy is in a rut, and so is the president's approval rating. What we need is a good war, but the Russians aren't interested. Hey -- how about that big polite country to the north? Niagara Falls Sheriff Bud B. Boomer takes this all a bit too seriously, though.

   StormCnter  Well, I can recognize Rhea Perlman and John Candy, but beyond those names, I have no idea.

   MeiDei  Another familiar face:
Though primarily remembered as a singer, she made more than 20 films. Her widely regarded beauty and poise (she was a pin-up girl prized by GIs during World War II ) contrasted strongly with her pedestrian appearance and streetwise acting technique (much parodied by impersonators ). One of her strongest performances came in Man of the West ('58 ), starring Gary Cooper, in which her character, the film's only woman, is abused and humiliated by an outlaw gang.
Many appearances & starring roles on long running TV series also.

   StormCnter  Julie London, I think. I found a lovely photo of Gogi Grant a few days ago but couldn't find her in any film, so had to abandon her to the wayward wind. Miss Julie is a pro in the movies, however.

   MeiDei  A very lovely photo of her.... your reward is a photo session to duplicate the above glamor shot.
I forgot she was married to Jack Webb before tying the knot with Bobby Troup.

   MeiDei  1990 film
George Faure is a Frenchman who has been offered a job in the U.S. But in order to get the job he must obtain a work permit - green card, and the easiest way is to marry an American. Bronte Parrish is a New Yorker who is a keen horticulturist and just found the perfect flat with its own greenhouse. Unfortunately the flat is for married couples only. A marriage of convenience seems the ideal solution to both problems. To convince the immigration officers they are married for love, they must move in with each other. As the mismatched couple attempt to cope with life together, they start to fall in love.

   StormCnter  Good Monday morning to all. March 2 is Texas Independence Day, so Texans tend to hang the Texas flag in commemoration. March 6 is the day the Alamo fell, so the flags either remain up or are rehoisted on that day. Mine won't come down until the day after April 21, which is San Jacinto Day...Sam Houston's victory over El Presidente Santa Ana.
Come in and "sit a spell". The coffee is hot and fresh.

   MeiDei  Hope the ice is gone in your area. It was a balmy 27 during the day [yesterday] here while the sun was shining & before the never-ending snow fell.

Happy Texas Independence Day to you, nice tradition!

   StormCnter  Thank you, Mei. Yes, the ice is mostly gone, still pockets of snow in the shade, temperature about 34 today. I have a dental appointment, so will miss morning action here.

   StormCnter  Well, never mind about the dentist. They have leaking pipes because of the freeze and my appointment was cancelled. That's two cancellations in a row for the appointment. It's an omen!
