Remember Me:  Lee Remick (1935 – 1991) –  “Uncommonly Gifted…”

2 August 2011 7:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When it comes to actresses, the movie business has always had an eye for beautiful faces.  Unfortunately, it has often only been an afterthought as to whether or not that beautiful face could do anything other than be beautiful.  Leaf through the archives of any of the movie glamour magazines from long ago and you’ll find them a cemetery of beautiful faces primped and hyped by the Hollywood PR machine to be The Next Great Thing.  Some never made it past a screen test, while others managed to survive a few screen roles, but through lack of talent, charisma, the right roles — whatever mysterious magic it is that causes a performer to click with an audience — soon disappeared, never to be heard of again.  It’s a long, looong casualty list of forgotten pretties like Merrilyn Grix,  Eleanor Counts, Kathy Marlowe, Myrna Dell, Sandra Giles, Jean Colleran, Sunnie O’Dea, »

Tab Hunter Turns 80: Ride The Wild Surf, Battle Cry on TCM

11 July 2011 7:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Tab Hunter turns 80 today. In his honor, Turner Classic Movies is showing five of his films. The first of the batch, Phil Karlson's Western Gunman's Walk, is on right now. Hunter and The Time Tunnel's James Darren play rancher Van Heflin's sons. Next is Ride the Wild Surf, starring Hunter and teen idol Fabian as a couple of dudes riding waves in Hawaii. Featuring some cool surfing footage and tons of corny dialogue, Ride the Wild Surf is a guilty pleasure. In his highly readable autobiography, Tab Hunter: Confidential, Hunter says his brother Walt — a former surfer — was his inspiration for the role. (Not that Hunter actually had to do any surfing.) He adds that director Don Taylor (Elizabeth Taylor's husband-to-be in Father of the Bride) had to step away for a week due to a death in the family, so Phil Karlson was brought in as a temporary replacement. »
