   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  2002 film. This one sounds like a movie I would enjoy. Title? Actors?
   35 minutes ago .




   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  I ran across this screenshot when I was researching the guy. You will know him, but can you name the actress? She is better known for a popular television series and her name sounds like a girls' dormitory. Extra points for the film title.

   Richdet  Her name is Grayson Hall. Her face perhaps familiar to fans of "Dark Shadows," where she lurked for many seasons. Here we see her as the uptight schoolmistress shepherding a group of ladies through Mexico on a tour bus driven by none other than a not so uptight Richard Burton in "The Night of the Iguana," an adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play. GH was nominated for the best supporting actress Oscar for this.

I have mentioned some weeks ago that I saw a production of "Night of the Iguana" locally earlier this year. Elizabeth Ashley played the same schoolmistress role in that production, and very unlike the Grayson Hall interpretation, Ashley being much older and "broader" in how she did it.

   MeiDei  I'll go with Hope's pick, Maureen's jawline isn't 'pointy' as Joan's was.

   StormCnter  Ok, I'll put everyone's curiosity to bed. She is Rhonda Fleming.

   Richdet  Max Ophuls' "Letter from an Unknown Woman." with Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan. This movie apparently was ignored on its release in the late 40s, but over time it has come to be regarded as a classic, and many regard Fontaine's performance as her best. Nice coincidence to spot Joan's picture right after I have posted about sister Olivia.

   StormCnter  In my opinion, sister Joan was the more beautiful, but probably de Havilland was the better actress. There was a lot of talent packed into those siblings.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  I am rereading a book I enjoyed when it was published in 1995, "A Fine Balance", by Rohinton Mistry. I admit I bought it by mistake, not recognizing it from all those years ago. But, I love books about India, both fiction and non-fiction. This one is a jewel.

   StormCnter  Yep, she is Paris Hilton, useless celebrity in my own opinion. I'm not sure what she has ever accomplished beyond the porn tape and coy selfies.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  From a list of "Worst Movie Quotes". Can you guess the film and the speaker?
"Hey, yeah, uhm, I'm-I'm just calling to procure a hasty abortion. What? Can you just hold on for a second, I'm, I'm on my hamburger phone."

   MeiDei  I didn't see this movie but something about that line and topic makes me think of Juno.

   StormCnter  Good analysis, Mei. Yes, it's from "Juno"

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  She is the only black actor to win the "triple crown" of acting, and the only black woman to be nominated three times for an Oscar (winning once ). Do you know her?

   StephaniePlum  Angela Bassett?
Yesterday at 13:35 EST .


   StormCnter  Nice to see you, Stephanie. Good guess, but she is not Angela Bassett. This actress was featured in a movie we discussed a lot on the Wall a couple of years go. The film was based on a best-selling book.
