The Siren

Oh Lance.

Rod Taylor used to tell a story about filming a scene for John Ford for Young Cassidy, before Ford got too ill to work. If I recall, it was a scene at the grave of O'Casey's mother. Taylor finished and Ford came over, kicked him, and said, "You son-of-a-bitch Aussie. You made me cry. THAT'S A WRAP!"

You ... so-and-so. Many, many thanks.

LOL! I usually use the same technique - just google "self styled siren" followed by some film title/actor name/director whenever I want to find out what the Siren or her friends have to say about said film/person. That puts me on the right track.

El Jefe

We are most of us pretty constantly in Triple-S's debt.

Nice graf on what you do like about Laughton, Lance; actually those observations are why I probably like him a bit more deeply than you do -- and why I'll guess you're still a fan of "Advise and Consent" on film even if Drury's later novels left you understandably cold.

ben

was Excellent . thaks .

Beel

I have one word for you, my boy, and that word is "The Big Clock." Well, yes, it's really three words.

Lance

Siren, does that mean the next time we all get together you're going to kick me or start crying or both?

El Jefe, you've got it. In Advise and Consent all the things I'm a fan of when it comes to Laughton are going on.

Beel, The Big Clock just went into the Netflix queue.

Kit Stolz

Funny, I like Laughton, but although I dimly remember the dark, grimy look of this movie, I completely forgot he starred in it. He seems like a natural villain for Hitchcock, but maybe he was just a little too hot (in McLuhan's terms) for Hitch's cool style.
