I never liked her, or any of her reviews. The best thing I can say about her was that she was better than that idiot Bosley Crowther.

Wayne was actually a very good actor. The Hippies made fun of him due to his macho patriotism.

The Quiet Man (1952) is one of my favorite of Wayne's. It's a great appealing comedy with a...

I've always been partial to his performance as Harry Caul in The Conversation (1974). But that's no doubt influenced by the fact that the movie itself is one of the great films.

Very nice noir photography from a 1952 Argentine film. I haven't seen it, or for that matter any Argentine noir at all. I suppose I resist due to the subtitles.

But if you saw it on TCM it's...

My favorite is Pillow Talk, which I've probably watched a...
