Personal Quote:

"Now the stars walk around in supermarkets dressed in blue jeans. It's depressing. I really think the fault lies with that "Method" school of acting in New York. They want to be real natural, you know, real folk. Well, God, every street corner you go around has real folks. You don't look for that in world stars. The entertainment business is a fantasy world. I don't think any female star should be seen doing the laundry. Hollywood was built on glamour, and they'd better get it back as soon as they can".


  1. I'm really excited that Ray Milland is the star of the month this month. He's one of my faves, and I'm looking forward to having a chance to see some of his movies that I've never seen before. I've already got my DVR set up for the next 2 weeks. I think he was fabulous in The Lost Weekend...definitely deserved his Oscar. I totally adore him in The Major and the Minor and Doctor Takes a Wife.

    Oh, I left you a comment on your Farley Granger post, but it never appeared like it went through...never got the page requiring the letter confirmation. That was a great tribute.

  2. And another cause that makes April fabolous.. ;")

  3. Patti, It is going to be a great month on TCM. My favorite Ray Milland genre, is in film Noirs. I hope to catch a few that I have not seen yet.

    I agree.. Irene. It is going to be great.
