Fun Facts from:


  1. I am a huge Eleanor Parker fan, so I've got my DVR already set for several of the movies TCM is showing that day. One is Of Human Bondage. I am assuming it's a remake of the Bette Davis/Leslie Howard movie? Any ideas on that?

    Also, my DVR is set for Once Upon a Honeymoon. My husband is a Ginger Rogers fanatic, and that is one of her movies we've never seen. We are both looking forward to watching it.

    Have a great day,

  2. Patti, I'm also really looking forward to TCM"s Eleanor Parker Tribute. This is the info. I found on the film:

    1. Of Human Bondage (1934 film), the first film adaptation of Maugham's book starring Leslie Howard and Bette Davis.

    2.Of Human Bondage (1946 film), a second American adaptation of Maugham's book starring Paul Henreid and Eleanor Parker.

    3.Of Human Bondage (1964 film), a British adaptation of Maugham's book starring Kim Novak and Laurence Harvey.

    Once Upon a Honeymoon, is going to be a wonderful little gem. I can't wait to see it.

  3. Patti, for some reason today I can not leave comments on others blogs.

    I have not seen the film, Dear Wife. I just joined Net Flix, so I will run over and watch it. Thanks for the wonderful review.
