You know what's odd about out Cliff to me? He was a better actor when he was young and unknown than after he became MONTGOMERY CLIFF. He's awesome in "The Search."

I didn't know he had been injured badly in a car wreck midway through his career, but you can tell his acting becomes stiff and unnatural after "Raintree County." It's a shame.

It's a strange thing- we have so many more Hollywood news and gossip channels than we ever did before, and yet Hollywood is far more boring than it was back in the studio system days.

I actually don't think she photographs well (or as well as possible) for stills, because in motion, she's just gorgeous. Still photos just don't do her justice. Both her turns in Hitchcock films (Rebecca and Suspicion) are among my favorites from Hitch, in large part because of her.
