Containing Multitudes Since 2004
You're a dead man Harry Fabian, a dead man.
Ugh! Tierney has all the charm of a stainless steel pole. Never one to project warmth or cordiality here she manages to generate sympathy for Widmark. No mean feat.
Oh, I don't know, Gene worked up a little warmth in "Leave Her To Heaven" and… wait, no she didn't. Hmmm, well, she *smiled* in a few "The Mating Season" scenes—does that count?Quite the dish, but yes, a little chilly.Read her ghosted autobiography so I understand she didn't have the easiest life, but still…
Introduced my 14-year-old son to Richard Widmark by way of "Kiss Of Death." He ate it up. Edge of his seat, literally. What a terrific rush it was, watching him taking in the movie for the first time. Tommy Udo definitely made an impression."OMG!! He actually pushed her down the stairs! An old lady!!"[sweet!]
One was the incomparable Udo, the other wore sunglasses in a rowboat - and just as chilling.
Great! Now I'm waiting for a Ladd/Lake picture. :)...and it's been more than a year since Widmark (and Dassin) died. Damn.
Here's a little dip in the Lake to tide you over...
Thanks! I love this woman... It's sad what she went through after her career flopped.
