TCR Celebrates National Classic Movie Day, May 16.



The Committee Room wishes you a Happy National Classic Movie Day! To celebrate classic movies, TCR is taking part in the Five Stars Blogathon, hosted by Classic Film and TV Cafe.

Five Stars Blogathon participants list five of their favorite classic-era stars and offer a brief explanation as to why these stars are favorites. In putting together its list, TCR chose to move past stardom's top, instantly recognizable folks (the level depicted in the illustration above) and give a nod to five less exalted but highly deserving performers. Perhaps reflecting their B list status, all of TCR's favorites may be best known more for their work on television than on the big screen.




The Committee Room's Five Favorites List (in alphabetical order)

Joan Bennett in The Reckless Moment (1949)
Joan Bennett  -- The more you live, the more you learn. The more Joan Bennett movies you see, the more you're struck by how consistently good she is. Bennett, a far better actress than her more glamorous sister Constance, did her best work in film noir where her no-nonsense, I don't care if you don't like me manner made her an unsettling presence. This vaguely scary quality also stood Bennett in good stead in the hokey Gothic horror soap opera Dark Shadows on TV in the 1960s. Recommended film: The Reckless Moment (1949), a great little film noir with Bennett as an ordinary suburban mom trying to protect her daughter from a murder rap.


James Garner -- Handsome leading men can have a sense of humor. Are you reading this Ryan Gosling? Alas, probably not. The genial Garner was a TV star who became a movie star (a pioneer traveler on this now well-trodden career path) then returned to TV which was probably his true home. Unlike the lunky and stiff Rock Hudson or the aging sophisticates Cary Grant and David Niven, Garner was a leading man you could actually believe Doris Day was married to. Recommended film: Grand Prix (1966), a beautifully filmed in Europe tale of Formula One drivers. Garner at his movie star apogee.


Carolyn Jones (left) with Natalie Wood in
Marjorie Morningstar (1958).
Carolyn Jones -- Remembered now pretty much only for her two year stint on TV's The Addams Family, Jones shined in a variety of secondary roles in a passel of feature films before she put on that long, black Morticia wig. Jones might have eventually found another niche but her death from cancer at age 53 sadly places her on the list of stars gone too soon. Recommended film: Marjorie Morningstar (1958), where Jones is a middle class Jewish girl working at a summer camp along side the title character played by Natalie Wood.



Angela Lansbury (right) with Katharine Hepburn
 in State of the Union (1948).
Angela Lansbury -- Lansbury could be beautiful or plain, classy or a floozy, young or old, British or American, sympathetic or a shrew. Whatever was required. Hollywood gave Lansbury a lot of work but never sufficient appreciation. Multiple Tonys and Emmys she has but not a single Oscar. Almost unbelievably, Lansbury is still working in her 90s. She has a role in Mary Poppins Returns, slated to open in 2018, seventy-four years after she made her screen debut in Gaslight (1944).  Recommended films: there are so many choices it's almost impossible to choose but State of the Union (1948) and The World of Henry Orient (1964).

Fred MacMurray -- Believe it or not, that toupee-wearing, aging actor who sleepwalked through his role as wisdom dispensing dad Steve Douglas on the 1960s sitcom My Three Sons was once among of Hollywood's most in-demand and highest paid leading men. Never a truly first rank star in his own right at the level of Clark Gable or Henry Fonda, MacMurray's specialty was playing opposite famous leading ladies but not stealing the show from them. MacMurray acquitted himself masterfully in numerous pictures with Carole Lombard, Claudette Colbert, and Barbara Stanwyck, among many others  Recommended films -- Alice Adams (1935) with Katharine Hepburn and Remember the Night (1940) with Stanwyck, and, of course, Double Indemnity (1944), also with the great Stanwyck, who, if this Five Stars list had focused on first rank stars would be on it.

Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works.

  2. Well, maybe old series can seem silly, they still are the best. I always want to rewatch at least few of them, but I have not time for it =( Maybe I could find someone to do my research paper and free a bit time to make an old movie marathon. But I don't sure if it's a good idea.

  20. Different games appeal to different people and each person is interested in the solution that is right for them. If you are looking for an amazing adventure in the company of other players, a RuneScape private server can do the trick. If you are looking for endless opportunities you can create, Minecraft servers have the answers you need for this.

  21. One of the most challenging parts about getting that amazing smile you see on the cover of magazines is finding the Tampa Orthodontist that can actually help you in this matter. That is because of the fact that there are different professionals out there that can make all sorts of promises and that might not have access to the most modern braces that can be found on the market. That is why it would be best to take the time to look for a specialist that can actually help you.

  30. Efficiency is one of the most important aspects you need to consider when you want to improve your home. If you turn your attention to the bedroom, roman shades are one of the solutions you can rely on for better rest. There are quite a few other options you have at hand for it and one of them comes from the installation of plantation shutters.

And if you are a perfectionist, then nothing other than custom closets will do for you.

  32. Most of us don’t think of the air conditioning systems in our homes and offices because we are used to these systems working fine. It is when we are in charge of maintaining the air quality inside our homes and offices that we tend to notice the quality of its functioning. For both home AC repair and commercial AC repair, it is never a good idea to experiment and tinker with these systems. To get the job done right, letting a professional technician handle the matter is the only solution.

  33. People have a lot of reasons why they spend time on the road. If you are interested in vehicle rental, you must pick the car that will suit you needs best. You must have a wide range of options to choose from so you can be sure your needs will be met. If you turn to the right service, they should offer van rental you can make the most of as well.

  34. The natural light that flows into a house is the one that will create a unique environment that you will appreciate. But what if there is too much light coming into your home? Roman shades can offer you the chance to control every ray of sunlight you can have. If you are looking for an easier impact, you can turn to plantation shutters for it instead.

  35. Especially when you are ready to change your career, one of the best ideas that you could have would be to attend a Trucking school in Sacramento. Don’t worry, this does not mean that you will be going to an actual school, but rather that you will be able to get your licence in as little time as a week and look for a new job. The interesting fact that you should know about the right Truck driving school in Sacramento is that they can help you start this career.

  39. Money is very important these days and you have to draw up budgets to keep track of your expenses. If you want to hire a caregiver, you have to find a CA live-in care agency to help you in the process. If you do not want to deal with a number of issues along the way, the MA live-in care agency has to put the cards on the table from the start.
