Rebecca And Laura

Spent a rainy evening watching two favorites.

Rebecca, directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

And Laura, directed by Otto Preminger.

Gotta Love Film Noir! And Alfred Hitchcock! Good choices.

TBS has been showing some '30s era movies of late starring Robert Taylor. I've always liked the old detective movies. Bogart, Cagny and all.

Laura is one of those movies where Vincent Price stops camping it up and shows off his acting chops, and they are prodigious. Another is "His Kind of Woman". Nice.

Yeah, Price could be a fine actor when he had the right part, but with that long face, high cheekbones and deep-set eyes he was typecast as the heavy, more often than not. In Laura, he does a great job with a Southern accent; not many can.

Both outstanding....the only thing worthwhile that useless Ted Turner has done is to put out the commercial free TCM-movie channel.
