Who is your favorite male actor or actors from the golden days?
Who is it that makes you think he is a darn good actor?
What made you like him? Was it the good looks or the way he acted?
Tell us all about it!
I dont have one I have several. Bob Hope was a good funny guy. Then there is Fred Astaire With the dancing bit. Charlie Chaplin from the silents.
It's not easy for me to choose just one.
I guess all in all I would say Bob Hope is at the top of the list.
Cary Grant. He could put on the most chilling looks,and add so much drama to a scene, in movies such as Suspicion. He also had a flair for comedy, movies like Monkey Business, and My Favourite Wife and I was a Male Warbride were hilarious.
Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant were great in just about all their movies, along with Gregory Peck and Henry Fonda. Errol Flynn made the best swashbuckler and I adore the musicals with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.
Some people share the news that the oldest film they've seen is Grease. (Not to be confused with Ancient Greece!) And yesterday I read of a film being described as old, which is only a few *years* old. Maybe it's me -- *I'm* old... Golden age... I like a lot of the Bogart films: In a Lonely Place is a particular favourite.
Yes, great movie!! Elizabeth Taylor was a screen goddess as Maggie the Cat. If you liked that movie you should Try The Long Hot Summer with Paul Neuman and his wife Joanne Woodward,also stars Orson Wells and Angela Landsbury.
I've never seen Taylor better than as Maggie. If it didn't bag her an Oscar it should've done. Thanks for that rec, it's not one I knew of. Will keep an eye open. Paul Newman was magnificent in many films for decades thereafter, The Verdict, for example.
