Quote from: Bill on April 14, 2007, 12:23:07 PMThat first scene with Bogey with Charles Waldron (Gen. Sternwood) may just be his finest scene ever in my books. Man does he nail it!
Quote from: Don Giovanni on April 14, 2007, 06:04:23 AMWell I think that some of his really philosophical films (Persona) are quite pretentious. Not that that's a bad thing! We need a bit of pretentiousness every so often.
Quote from: SonicMan on April 14, 2007, 03:00:22 PMOK, guys - guess I'll 'chime in' on that movie - EXCELLENT! BTW, what do you feel he is 'thinking about' looking @ Bacall?

Quote from: SonicMan on April 14, 2007, 07:00:51 PMLady C - LOL - Are we on the same 'wavelength' w/ that question? BTW - I do love Key Largo w/ those two; plus, Edward G. Robinson was not bad as a BAD GUY!
Quote from: Lady Chatterley on April 14, 2007, 07:05:42 PM Clair Trevor was superb also!
Quote from: SonicMan on April 14, 2007, 07:16:18 PMOh yes, Claire Trevor was superb, and I believe was awarded the Oscar for 'Best Supporting Actress' in that role; but she was always great in many other performances - just an overall excellent movie -

Quote from: Bunny on April 14, 2007, 08:15:05 PMGood film, but I have to say I much prefer To Have and Have Not. Now that is a real movie in every sense of the word.Slim: You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow.
Quote from: Lady Chatterley on April 14, 2007, 07:19:28 PM She deserved the Oscar!
Quote from: Bill on April 14, 2007, 08:51:53 PMDefinitely a watershed moment in "Hollywood History" Bunny.....I just love it when we travel down memory Bogie and Bacall Lane here at GMG. However, out of the four* that they made together (To Have or Have Not; The Big Sleep;Dark Passage; and Key Largo) I would still put The Big Sleep down as my favorite of the four, followed closely by Key largo.*The also made an appearance together here:http://themave.com/Bacall/BB/FI/TwoGuys.htm
Quote from: Bunny on April 15, 2007, 07:12:36 AMBill, the most interesting thing for me about THAHN is that the chemistry between the two stars carried on to the film. We were resigned when Sam sent Mary Astor up the river, swooned over Bogart giving up Bergman, but here was his meeting with the "keeper," and the fireworks are still there for all to see. That chemistry is so strong that even 50 years later it makes you notice. They were great together in all of their films, but this one is the sizzler.
Quote from: Solitary Wanderer on April 14, 2007, 02:12:40 PMWatched this last night:It was very good but not great despite it various awards. It was predictable and a downer although it had its touching moments and moment of redemption at the end.
Quote from: Haffner on April 15, 2007, 05:57:15 AMEragonNo creativity, even less imagination. No character development whatsoever. Even the special effects are quickly tiresome.This, and "Silent Hill", are two of the worse movies I've ever seen, both were released within the past couple of years I believe.It seems that, unless Hollywood can remake something, there really aren't many good stories out there.
