Dean Martin & Phil Harris have a tea party

March 25th, 2011 Comments off

Here is Dean Martin and Phil Harris having a tea party. The joke was that Dean and Phil were notorious drinkers (although they were not really heavy drinkers). They were two of the hardest workers in entertainment who liked to have a drink now and then. Phil Harris was, for many years, Jack Benny’s band leader and was married to actress/singer Alice Faye. Phil is probably best known today as the voice of the bear Baloo in Disney’s version of “Jungle Book”.

A Date With Judy – Elizabeth Taylor – 1948 [VIDEO]

March 25th, 2011 Comments off

“A Date with Judy” was Elizabeth Taylor’s first “adult” movie. It was filmed a year before her last adolescent movie (Little Women). This was one of those great MGM movies of late forties with lots of stars such as Robert Stack and Deanna Durbin along with others. This was the movie that got Elizabeth recognized. Joan Collins said the other night that when this movie came out every girl she knew wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor and every boy wanted to be with her.

Elizabeth Taylor, a beauty and a giant of the silver screen. I love every movie that she made. Yes, even Cleopatra, of which I never been able to sit through entire movie. My three favorite Liz Taylor movies are Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? , Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and this one from her early days, Little Woman where she played Amy.
