This Week on N and CF.
Tuesday, we are going to wrap up the Jean Harlow(pictured above) tribute, with a movie review, pictures and movie clips.
Also.. I'm really looking forward to April Star of the month, Ray Milland, who screen career ran from 1929 to 1985, and he is best remembered for his Academy Award–winning portrayal of an alcoholic writer in The Lost Weekend (1945), the murder-plotting husband in Dial M for Murder (1954), and as Oliver Barrett III in the 1970 film, Love Story.
Happy Birthday: Jane Powell! ( April 1, 1929). Powell was signed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer while still in her teens. Once there, the studio utilized her vocal, dancing and acting talents, casting her in such musicals as Royal Wedding, with Fred Astaire, A Date with Judy, with friend Elizabeth Taylor, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, with Howard Keel. In the late 1950s, her film career slowed, only to be replaced with a busy theater and television career. Please click picture on side bar to read past reviews.
Happy Birthday: Debbie Reynolds! (April 1, 1932). Reynolds regularly appeared in movie musicals during the 1950s and had several hit records during the period. Her song "Aba Daba Honeymoon" (featured in the 1950 film Two Weeks with Love as a duet with Carleton Carpenter) was a top-three hit in 1951. Her most high-profile film role was in Singin' in the Rain (1952) as Kathy Selden. In Bundle of Joy (1956) she appeared with her then-husband, Eddie Fisher.
