My God do I love this movie, was Dennis Morgan a stud, or what???

I have to stop at Blockbuster to see if they have it, NOW!

Sorry I'll always prefer...

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Yes, well, Dennis was much hotter looking than Jimmy!

What was that movie with Dennis and the mermaid? Or am I mixing up my old classic films?



edit: Well, I'm convinced I am mixing up my favorite oldie movies. I do remember Dennis clearly in "That's Entertainment" though. Remember the scene of the old, ENORMOUS, MGM soundstage with the tiered 'wedding cake' style set turning as layer upon layer of showgirls and singing boys were revealed? Finally you saw the tenor singing "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody" - and it was Dennis Morgan. That scene originally appeared in "The Great Zigfield".

Whenever someone asks me to recommend a classic Christmas film, I immediately skip over "It's a Wonderful Life" and tell them to watch these first:

Christmas in Connecticut (Stanwyck/Jones)
Remember the Night (Stanwyck/MacMurray)

Barbara is at her best in both of these holiday movies and I am still awaiting the release of the latter to DVD!

This is my favorite Christmas movie of all time.

I watch it with the family every year.

I love Christmas in Connecticut and I really adore Barbara Stanwyck. My favorite Stanwyck is "Annie Oakley" which my AndyHardy just sent to me on DVD. What about "The Lady Eve"?

I love William Powell - so that's probably it, Glebby. (In fact, I love William Powell much more than Dennis Morgan. For some reason I've never been attracted to men who were prettier than me.)

Elphaba...I hope you fall in love with Remember the Night as I did when I first saw it.

The storyline is typical "that would never happen" but the journey through Stanwyck's acting in this movie makes it worthwhile. A wonderful holiday film that deserves much more exposure.
