    Just a few film recommendations:

    Ingrid Bergman in The Inn Of The Sixth Happiness

    Olivia DeHavilland in The Strawberry Blonde and The Irish In Us, two Cagney novies with TSB being the much better one.

    Deborah Kerr in Heaven Knows Mr. Allison and Tea And Sympathy.

    Great actressess and a very nice list!

      Apparently I need to look into these ladies career, and give a more accurate account of the films I have seen.

      I love “The Inn of Sixth Happiness”.
      I don’t think I have ever heard of “The Irish in Us”. Why is that?

      I enjoyed “Heaven Knows Mr. Allison”, but have not seen “Tea and Sympathy” (yet another Warner Archive)-they really should just send them all to me!

      Thanks for all the suggestions, and for reminding me of all those fortunate ladies in my Hall of Fame.


  2. John says:

    You probaly haven’t seen The Irish In Us because it is just a mediocre film. But I love DeHavilland and Cagney so I thought I would just mention it to you. The great character actress Mary Gordon (movie mother) plays Cagney’s mom in here but Cagney wasn’t actually too keen on having her because Gordon was not Irish but Scottish. We even see in one scene Cagney tell Gordon , “just a a wee bit of Scotch in ya.” It was his way of trying to sell Gordon’s Scotch brogue to the audience.

    I am sad to see Claudette Colbert or Greer Garson didn’t make your Hall of Fame of actresses.


    • Paul says:

      It sounds like a fun film, and something that I would enjoy. Perhaps I will find it one day.

      Colbert is dangerously close to finding herself on the list and Garson isn’t too far behind either. Perhaps next time there is a Lasso the Movies Hall of Fame vote, there will be some new inductees.


  3. John says:

    My favorite Colbert films include So Proudly We hail, Imitation Of Life and Tomorrow Is Forever. Tomorrow Is Forever will always be a special film to me which I never get tired of seeing. The heartfelt dialogue between Colbert’s character and Orson Welle’s character is just very moving.


    • Paul says:

      You’ve talked about “Tomorrow Is Forever” previously and it has been added to my “must see” list. Orson is always someone I enjoy anyway and I do need to seek out more Colbert films. It seems much of her filmography is either very popular (being the films we have all seen) or hard to find. I have seen most of her popular films, but need to dig deeper to get a better feel for her whole career.
