Classic Film : Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

7/10

If you want a more realistic husband/wife hell, check out "The Cat" with Jean Gabin. It's natural, and not so hysterical.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

Looks like TCM has a good line up today!
Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?
After that, you say On The Waterfront…
I almost wish I had cable. I do have WAOVW? in my library… I may watch that later.
As for The Cat, I haven't seen that one. Sounds interesting. Which year? I tried looking it up, but there are so many under that title.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

Yeah, I almost wish I hadn't seen them yet! (I try, but I don't like re-watching movies anymore).

Here is the IMDB link
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066906/


It's a great movie, I promise this. I think it blows WAOVW out of the water.

Who wants realism? Liz and Dick's drunken brawl is hilarious.

Have you ever seen a sexier boozier MILF?

This movie is more realistic and more importantly, much better - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066906/

But I haven't seen a sexier boozier MILF… She made some off-beat movies like "Secret Ceremony" and one from the early 70s with a see-through outfit that was really sexy.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I love Elizabeth Taylor. She's easily my favorite actress.

Here's cuts from both films:



"Le Chat" is very atmospheric. But then again it's French.

She's not MY favorite actress, but she definitely has presence. A year ago or so, I watched a handful of her (unconventional) movies.

I think the most talented actress is Gena Rowlands.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I loved Gena Rowlands in "Gloria". Yeah.

Maybe it's because I'm queer but Elizabeth Taylor is not only a great actress, she has that overwhelming persona. She makes the character interesting regardless of the role.

I can't for the hell of me think of the name of the film, but it had Elizabeth Taylor and Carolyn Jones. And Jones played some strange beatnik chick.

I like Vivien Leigh and Lana Turner

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

"Imitation of Life" was a great Lana Turner film.



Meh I forgot Sandra Dee was in it. Lol.

In "Gloria", she's more of a tough cookie. That movie was actually made to sell, no one took it, so Cassavetes ended up making it. The little boy was annoying.

I love her performance in "A Woman Under the Influence" and for me, it's the best performance I've seen in a movie.


Elizabeth Taylor definitely had persona. She had "it". I think a lot of it is the face.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I liked the "Gloria" role because she was tough, a former gangster's moll.

Taylor is beautiful but she does a perfect "bitch" as well.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

She does, and so did "Gloria". Rowlands never attracted me sexually, but there was something about Liz, especially her eyes.

Susan Hayward, too. She was pretty, too. Not that glamorous kinda shit. I don't think I know the names of the prettiest actresses I've seen. Many were in foreign movies from Europe and some weren't the leading ladies.

Anna Magnani was another one. She had the entire package. And she was tougher than all the aforementioned.

One of the first films to use the F word as well.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I actually read about it, I never saw the film

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I hope one day they redo some of these classics. I don't want an overhaul of the script, just the acting. The scripts were always great, it's just that in those days they hadn't really recognized that stage and screen require different acting techniques.

Re: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - 1pm on TCM

I just read Mike Nichols biography. Virginia Woolf is in my Top 10! Then he did The Graduate. After that it was all downhill for him.
