    Most of the review says : "she's plain, so she doesn't deserve to be a leading nominee" ... I'm not agree with this.

    The Farmer's Daughter was a big commercial success and Loretta was the soul of the movie ! I really love her in it, even her swedish accent. I have always loved the scene she explains how mony things she can do ("... And I make glögg" is one of my favorite line ever ).
    I don't know ... sometimes, little movie has something special.

    I like all the 1947 nominees, except McGuire, who has an awful role and is not even confortable in it (and she is an amazing actress). Roz is powerful but very theatrical, Crawford and Hayward give one of their best performances (and I love them too ... in fact, Crawford, Hayward and Young in my top 10 actresses of the Golden Ages ... and Roz is probably 11th ! ). I think Crawford was really terrific in the 50 and most of her movies in the 50 are among the best melodramas ever (I mean Autumn Leaves ? ).

    PS : I think the Bullock comparaison is very appropriate;

    If "plain" is a euphemism for "evil incarnate", I'm totally on board w/ Schickel...

    She's... Bette Davis wishes she had had her talent.

    Thank you for so much

    It's a pity though that she has a small repertoire, as we can't enjoy her talents in more things (I'm yet to see some films of her though )

    Dunne or Arthur could have been a good comparaison (especially Dunne who had exactly the same repertoire).

    Well duh! But I like to highlight the fact that many actresses have been as good or better than the most famous ones, and that fame or a long career depend on many factors besides talent. Gloria Grahame or Margaret Sullavan are examples of actresses who saw their careers end too soon for a number of reasons, and who, because of that and a couple other factors, don't have the prestige a Bette Davis or a Kate Hepburn have, but who are as talented or more as those two were.

    Thank you for so much

    For Ash Wednesday. One of my all time guilty pleasure faves. And since it's Valentine's Day, we'll do it in French.

    Speaking of ESSENTIAL.

    Had to stop everything this morning to watch "Caged"



    This is required ACTRESSING viewing. Frances McDormand has nothing on these gals. Too bad Agnes Moorhead or Hope Emerson weren't running things in Ebbing, Missouri. They would have never put up with Mildred's behavior. Eleanor Powell is remarkable. It's campy and it's dated( women without men go WILD) and the performances are first rate.

    Ladies, never surrender your kitty in a joint like this.

    Eleanor and Agnes together. Can't wait for my 1950 marathon.

    How can you wait? Even in this campfest, Moorhead shines. Damn, she was good. No, she was great! One of the greatest EVAH!

    Oh, Caged is just fabulous. Parker starts out a bit iffy and she misleads you into thinking it's going to be a certain type of performance, but by midway (and especially the last act), she completely turns the role on its head and gives one of the most no-holds-barred actressing performances of the '50s.

    And yes, Moorehead is far better than the nominated Hope Emerson... but like, how can you disparage that nomination when it's so gloriously one-note and menacing?

    Lol, Emerson. Kind of reminds me of Katherine Bowman's Steak house waitress in "Hell or High Water". One note but deliciously so!

    I WILL NOT w/ this badmouthing of Emerson.
    We probably would not have had Divine, w/out Hope Emerson's amazeballs work in Caged. The scene where she flaunts her date is one of the all time classics of great screen actressing. Check yourselves, FOOLS...!

    Hope Emerson was a fine actress. Too many regard her naturalistic performance in a heated melodrama as just being who she was. For those, I encourage them to see her work as a circus strong woman a few years earlier hilariously hoisting a reticent Spencer Tracy in the air and holding him there by his nether regions in Adam’s Rib.
    Aisle be seeing you in all the old familiar places
