This is my favourite Laurel and Hardy feature-length film. Their dancing to the hillbillies singing and the 'Trail of the Lonesome Pine' are good musical sequences. Their 'Trail of the Lonesome Pine' soundtrack recording from the film made it to the top of the UK music charts nearly forty years after the movie was released.

I think this is 5/10 too. Burt Lancaster gets all the good lines. But it's not a film that I would want to see again.

I rated this 6/10 recently on IMDb after seeing four Martin and Lewis 1950s comedies. The musical interludes in 'Pardners' are nice.

I agree that Jerry Lewis is a marmite actor. I can just about cope with his screen indulgences.

To each his own, for me with Shue it was that crazy eyed bitch look, but yes I do agree that Gershon would have been just as hot, check her out in This World, Then The Fireworks if you haven't seen it.  Afro

I still need to check that one out, thanks for the reminder!

Your list of classic actors whom you dislike is a lot longer than mine, for sure.

I used to find Vincent Price very annoying, but I like him better now.

As for Joel McCrea, I like him and I think he was very sexy!


Sorry, but Joel McRea's sexiness (or lack thereof) doesn't matter to me  Wink Reminds me of when a girl (not just any girl, but the first girl I ever kissed, who permanently scarred me) told me I HAD TO watch BAD BOYS, how great it was. Finally, finally, after a loong time, I saw it, and then complained to her that it was awful, and she didn't argue; she just said, "Any movie in which you get to see Will Smith in underwear is a good movie."  Angry Thanks a lot, I wish she had told me a long time ago that THAT was the reason she said it was a "great" movie. Would have saved 2 hours of my life!  Wink (Then again, if I hadn't met her I'd probably have saved 5 Years of my life. But I digress .....)

I'm not making excuses.

But it's important to differentiate, when i say I can't stand her and someone else is wondering how I can be impugning her acting abilities, I'm not.

Some actors can also grow on you. I used to dislike Butt Lancaster very much but now I find him tolerable - him being in a movie doesn't ruin it for me. I still find Joseph Cotten and Joel McRea difficult to watch. Can't stand Farley Granger. Oh, and did I mention SHELLEY WINTERS?  Grin

Spoiler alert for "Army of Shadows"

---

Yes, Melville exploded the myth and romance of the Resistance, and used a gangster-movie style. Still, I think there should have been one scene at the beginning where they show the Resistance on offense. Show why the Nazis are arresting these people. The entire movie is nothing but defense - the only people who die are informers, and one Nazi who Ventura kills as he is escaping arrest.

p.s. I do not believe there is any way that Signoret would have been a snitch. She'd have said nothing, meaning her daughter would have been taken to the whorehouse. The group puts her out of her misery - thereby probably saving her daughter; once Signoret is dead, the Nazis will probably leave her daughter alone.

GBU goes South Africa. Entertaining variation on Leone's movie, it suffers from cheap production values and ineptitude of actors but it has some good scenes and it's worth a visit. 6/10

However...
Meh... She tries, I'll give her that much. But I felt like whoever cast Shue and Gershon thought it would be 'edgy' to switch them around. That single lick Gershon gives Harrelson after he's released from prison? THAT was hot, to me Shue never got anywhere near that level during the entire movie... I really wish they were cast the other way round.

To each his own, for me with Shue it was that crazy eyed bitch look, but yes I do agree that Gershon would have been just as hot, check her out in This World, Then The Fireworks if you haven't seen it.  Afro

Broken City (2013) Dir. by Allen Hughes starring Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, noir-ish story of an ex cop who is hired by NYC Mayor to spy on his cheating wife, though it's actually about a more convoluted scenario than that. Some nice cinematography of the city but story has some plot problems. 6/10
