'The Ghost and Mrs. Muir' and 'Laura' - two of my favourite movies getting some Rewind love!

Another great (but *very* different) Gene role is 'Leave Her to Heaven'. I think she was Oscar nom'd for it.

Pop trivia: Agatha Christie based 'The Mirror Crack'd' on a real event in Gene Tierney's life.

I watched the biography of Gene Tierney they had on the Laura dvd Logan!!!

Is it based on her battle with metal disorders? or her daughter maybe? Gene had a tough life......such a great actress and beautiful......the biography is well worth watching!

Gene contracted measles attending a fund-raising event for war bonds while pregnant. Her daughter was born severely mentally handicapped and needed care for the rest of her life. Gene wanted nothing more than to be a mom and she was devastated and blamed herself.
Years later a woman approached her at a party and told her she'd been her favourite actress when she was younger, and that she'd snuck out of quarantine while infected with measles to come and see her at a signing, even managing to kiss her on the cheek.

You get the picture. Agatha Christie used that as the basis for the plot of The Mirror Crack'd.

Here's a trifecta of sci-fi/horror movies that I watched recently:

Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster (1964): I have Classic Media's 2007 DVD release with the Japanese and American versions. This is one of my favorites in the Godzilla series for the mix of monsters, human subplots, special effects, and music. The Japanese version, as usually is the case with kaiju eiga, is better than the English-dubbed equivalent. The original version has a smoother flow in terms of the plot and how the events play out. The scenes where Godzilla and Rodan first make their entrances are well constructed (having Godzilla rise from the ocean to destroy an ocean liner is apropos), as is Ghidorah's emerging from the meteorite. The climactic battle with Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan against Ghidorah is one of the most fun and exciting sequences in kaiju history.

Revenge of the Creature: A solid sequel to one of my favorite classic horror movies. I liked the plot of having the Creature brought into captivity at a marine park and escaping. I've always liked the kinds of horror/sci-fi movies where monsters from exotic, natural environments strike back at humanity in so-called modern civilization. John Agar and Lori Nelson make a good pairing as scientists. Although Nelson's character is not the same as Julie Adams's from the original movie, she does make a good substitute in the eye candy and acting departments. Look for Clint Eastwood in a brief role as a lab assistant goofing around with a lab rat. There's some gorgeous Florida scenery in Revenge of the Creature, too. It's available as part of the Creature from the Black Lagoon Legacy Collection from Universal (it's got the entire trilogy).

Horror of the Blood Monsters: Yikes, is this movie horrible! Say what you will about Ed Wood or Bert I. Gordon, but at least they put some effort into their movies. Al Adamson belongs in the same ranks as equally terrible directors like Ted V. Mikels, Nick Millard, and David L. Hewitt. How bad is Horror of the Blood Monsters? At least 40 minutes of it is taken from other movies (among them, One Million B.C., Unknown Island, and some Filipino movie called Tagani). There's a toy model used for a spaceship, Halloween-store vampire fangs, weird tinting, and John Carradine looking and acting miserable. There's absolutely no reason to watch this garbage unless you feel like punishing yourself. Image released this back in 2003, but don't even bother getting it, unless you need a coaster or want to practice skeet shooting.

It moved a little slow, really focused on the characters and their relationships, but I didn't find it boring, no.

Zach and Helen, Al Adamson makes Ed Wood look like Orson Welles. Many years ago, around 1984 or 85, I think, I went to a dusk-to-dawn show at a drive-in. Wouldn't you know it, but Blood Monsters was playing under yet another title that had been crudely spliced into the opening credits. That thing just wouldn't die! Have you seen any of Adamson's Westerns? They are like watching kids in the yard play cowboys and Indians. [Smile]

I just watched it, that was friggin' hysterical [Big Grin] How stupid was the woman? He tells her this story of being in prison cos he was a cat burglar and took tools with him to say he was the plumber if caught. Then immediately after she leaves him in the house and goes out with a friend, bahaha! That ending LOL

Gene was certainly nominated for an Oscar for her acting in "Leave Her to Heaven," Logan 5.

Helen S, it is gratifying to see that you appreciated "The Plumber."
