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.
