    The Misfits

    The Misfits is a 1961 American drama film written by Arthur Miller, directed by John Huston, and starring Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Thelma Ritter, and Eli Wallach. It was the final film appearance for both Gable and Monroe. The movie was not a commercial success at the time of its release but garnered critical respect for its script and performances.

    Plot

    The Misfits takes place in Reno, Nevada, and depicts the chance meeting and friendship of a depressed divorcée, Roslyn Tabor (Monroe), and Gay Langland (Gable), an aging ex-cowboy prone to gambling, who survives by rounding up and catching mustangs. These had once been sold as horses for children, but now the only market is selling them to slaughterhouses for the manufacture of dog food. Wallach plays Guido, Langland's pilot partner, and Clift plays Perce Howland, a drifter rodeo rider.

    Gable's last film. And of course, the great Montgomery Clift, Brando's friend and rival. Seriously, he could have been better than Brando if he had not died too young. Keep it going, Ragavendhra sir (can't wait for you to go to 1962 where one secret agent made his big screen appearance).

    Pocketful of Miracles



    Brief Synopsis

    In 1930 New York, shortly after debt-ridden nightclub owner Rudy Martin dies, his daughter Elizabeth, whom he called "Queenie," shows up to hand the deed to his club to kindhearted bootlegger Dave the Dude. Attracted to Queenie, the Dude decides to help her turn the club into a popular speakeasy, and two years later she has paid off all of her father's debts. Everything is going right for the Dude, who thinks that his luck comes from his daily purchase of an apple from "Apple Annie," a disheveled old apple vendor who leads the Broadway panhandlers. He is about to make a deal with Chicago gangster Steve Darcey, and Queenie has agreed to marry him. Just as the Dude is about to close his deal with Darcey, however, his boys are unable to find Annie. Panicky that he won't have the luck he needs for pulling off the Darcey deal, the Dude learns where Annie is from a group of panhandlers who visit his apartment. They tell him that Annie has been supporting a daughter who has been living in a Spanish convent for years and that all of the extra money she has squeezed from them has gone to the girl. In an elaborate deception, Annie has been sending and receiving letters from the girl, named Louise, at the swank Marberry Hotel. When the hotel employee who had been Annie's contact was fired for apparently "stealing" one of the letters, Annie went boldly in and retreived it herself, only to discover that it announced Louise's imminent marriage and arrival in New York with her fianceé and his father, a Spanish count. When the Dude visits Annie, accompanied by Queenie, who has decided to leave the Dude and marry someone else if he closes the Darcey deal, she drunkenly confirms what has happened. Although he is sympathetic, he leaves with his apple, but after the panhandlers offer their meagre savings to finance a real stay for Annie at the Marberry and Queenie goads him into rethinking the matter, the Dude agrees to help. Using a rich friend's appartment at the Marberry, and with the aid of the kindly butler Hutching, the Dude installs Annie as a tenant. With Queenie's help, and that of several hairdressers, makeup artisits and clothiers, Annie is transformed into her elegant society alter ego, Mrs. E Worthington Manville. To complete the picture, Judge Henry Blake, a silver-throated pool hustler, is brought in to play her husband. When the boat arrives that night, the transformed Annie greets Louise, her fiancé Carlos and his father, Count Romero. Reporters on the dock are suspicious when they see the Dude and his gang there and try to get a story, but the Dude's boys Junior and Joy Boy arrange to have the reporters taken away. For the next several days, while the boys try to keep Darcey occupied, Annie and Louise's reunion proceeds joyfully, while the Dude gets swept up in the fairy tale. Despite Joy Boy's constant nagging that Darcey will tire of waiting for a final meeting and turn violent, the Dude cools his heals. Meanwhile, newspaper stories about the missing reporters have surfaced, and the entire city is up-in-arms. From the beat cops to the chief of police, the mayor and even the governor, everyone is being criticized in the press for inaction. As the day of Louise and the Romero's departure approaches, the marriage seems a certainty until Count Romero insists on meeting some of Mrs. Worthington's society freinds. Realizing that the marriage will not go through without some kind of reception, the Dude and Judge Blake tutor his gang on gentlemanly repartee and manners, while Queenie teaches her chours girl freinds how to hehave like "ladies." After intensive coaching, the group seems ready for their debut as society substitutes at the planned reception, but just as they are about to leave Queenie's club, some panhandlers let the Dude know that the police, suspicious that the Dude is involved in the reporters' kidnapping, have surrounded them. As Annie waits in despair and the Count becomes increasingly suspicious because no one has come to the reception, the Dude is questioned by the police commisioner. Unable to explain the situation to the commissioner's satisfaction, the Dude then admits that he has the reporters and promises to kill them unless he is taken to the mayor. While the Dude is being taken to the mayor, who also is having a reception that night, Annie decides that she has no choice but to tell the count the truth. Just as she is about to reveal everything, however, the Dude arrives, accompanied by the mayor, the governor and all of the society guests from the mayor's New Year's Eve reception. As each person greets Annie, they pretend to know her well, which greatly impresses the count. After the reception, limousines drive everyone to the dock to see Louise and the Romeros off. With the reporters safe and no real crimes committed, state and city officials, as well as newspaper editors, decide that no one need ever know the truth. As Annie lovingly waves goodbye to Louise, the Dude tells Queenie that he is going to move to Maryland with her and forget about Darcey, and after the boat pulls away, Annie orders her panhandling friends to get back to work.

    The Parent Trap



    The Parent Trap is a 1961 Walt Disney film.[1][2] It stars Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith in a story about teenage twins and their divorced parents. The screenplay by the film's director David Swift was based upon the book Lottie and Lisa (Das Doppelte Lottchen) by Erich Kästner. Kastner derived his version from a Deanna Durbin film Three Smart Girls. The Parent Trap was nominated for two Academy Awards, was broadcast on television, saw three television sequels, was remade in 1998 with Lindsay Lohan, and has been released to VHS and DVD. The original film was Mills' second of six films for Disney.

    Plot

    dentical twins Susan Evers and Sharon McKendrick (Hayley Mills) meet at summer camp, unaware they are sisters. Their identical appearance initially creates rivalry, and they continually pull pranks on one other. Eventually, their mischief ruins the camp dance. As punishment, they must live together in an isolated cabin for the remaining summer. After both admit they come from broken homes, they soon realize they are twin sisters and that their parents, Mitch and Maggie (Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara), divorced shortly after their birth, with each parent having custody of one of them. The twins, each eager to meet the parent they never knew, switch places. While Susan is in Boston masquerading as Sharon, Sharon goes to California pretending to be Susan.
    Sharon telephones Susan in Boston with news that their father is planning to marry a gold-digger, and their mother needs to be rushed to California to prevent the union. In Boston, Susan tells her mother the truth about the switched identities and the two fly there.
    With all four in California, the twins set about (with mild approval from their mother) sabotaging their father's marriage plans. Mitch's money-hungry, and much-younger, fiance, Vicki Robinson (Joanna Barnes), receives rude, mischievous treatment from the girls and some veiled cattiness from Maggie. One evening, the girls recreate their parents' first date at an Italian restaurant with a gypsy violinist. The former spouses are gradually drawn together, though they quickly begin bickering over minor things and Vicki.
    To delay Maggie's return to Boston with Sharon, the twins dress and talk alike so their parents are unable to tell them apart. They will reveal who is who only after everyone goes on the annual family camping trip. Mitch and Maggie reluctantly agree, but when Vicki objects to the plan, Maggie tricks her into taking her place. The girls effect the coup de grace: Vicki spends her time swatting mosquitoes and being awakened in terror by two bear cubs licking the honey the twins put on her feet. Exasperated, Vicki angrily slaps one of the girls, and Mitch ends the relationship. Mitch and Maggie rekindle their love, and the two remarry in the final scene with the twins in the wedding party.

    Thanks RAGHAVENDRA for the 'Roman Holiday' coverage and also 'Come September'. "Come September" always reminds me of my days in IISc,Bangalore. I watched the movie with my classmates and liked it so much I wanted to watch it again. One of my classmates remembered that and opened his speech in our farewell party with the sentence, "Come September" Raj........... will be on a plane to the US and the airlines will charge him half fare (referring to my lean appearence) ! A couple of Septembers later I was on a plane to the US and he was on a plane to Canada!

    I hope you cover "From Here to Eternity" starring Montgomery Clift, Frank Sinatra , Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr, and "The Bridge on the River Kwai" with Alec Guinness !

    Dear Rajraj,
    It's interesting and nostalgic to read your memories on Come September. Yes, it has its impact on almost all seniors here. As I said earlier, irrespective of the nature, electrical/ sound contractors who provide sound service to the meetings, would positively play this music on their record player. For many days, I was not aware of the film but the music mesmerised me. One day I went to the place below the dias, where the sound contractor would have positioned his equipments and found the name of the film. From then on for almost all the songs I would approach them to find out the details.

    And the Paragon theatre which existed on Wallajah Road (where Arihant flats now exists), Chennai, used to play two albums for many years, until it was curtains down, one Good, Bad and Uglly and the other one, Come September. Besides these, there was another one, BABY ELEPHANT WALK.

    A nice trip to the past.

    And the films you mentioned would definitely would be covered here. I am trying to bring a chronological presentation and wherever possible include those that are beyond this time.

    Léon Morin, prêtre (French: Léon Morin, prêtre)



    Léon Morin, Priest (French: Léon Morin, prêtre),[1] is a 1961 film directed and scripted by Jean-Pierre Melville, and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Emmanuelle Riva. Belmondo was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actor. It is based on the 1952 Prix Goncourt-winning novel The Passionate Heart (French: Léon Morin, prêtre) by Béatrix Beck.

    Plot
    In a small French town during the Occupation, Barny (Riva)[2] is a young, wayward, sexually frustrated widow, living with her little girl. She is also a communist militant who long ago decided that the easiest way was the best. One day she enters a church, randomly chooses a priest (Belmondo)[3] to confess to and, while in confessional, attempts to provoke him by criticizing Catholicism. Instead of being affronted, the priest engages her in an intellectual discussion regarding religion. The priest is Leon Morin, young, handsome, smart and altruistic. He invites Barny to continue the conversation outside of confessional. She begins regularly seeing him and is impressed by his moral strength, while he makes it his mission to steer her onto the right path.

    RETURN TO PEYTON PLACE







    Brief Synopsis
    Young Allison MacKenzie, who is called to New York for the final editing of her first novel (a thinly disguised case history of the residents of her hometown of Peyton Place), falls in love with her publisher, Lewis Jackman, an older married man. When the novel is published, many townspeople are outraged, particularly Roberta Carter, a domineering and snobbish woman determined to wreck her son Ted's marriage to his Italian-born wife, Raffaella. Hounded by her lurid past, Selena Cross is unable to face her lover, ski instructor Lars Hedlom. Allison's mother, Connie, shocked by her daughter's exposé of the town's citizens, becomes enraged when her husband, school principal Mike Rossi, is fired because he refuses to remove the novel from the school library. Meanwhile, Roberta has finally succeeded in driving her daughter-in-law out of the house. Emotionally upset, Raffaella races to the ski slopes and nearly causes herself to have a miscarriage. Events come to a head when a town meeting is called to discuss Rossi's defense of the controversial novel. Allison and Lewis are present when Connie publicly stands by her daughter and denounces Roberta Carter as a hypocritical bigot. The crisis over, Mike is reinstated at the school, Selena is reunited with Lars, and Ted is reconciled with Raffaella when he finally stands up to his mother. A more mature and wiser Allison realizes that she could never find true happiness by destroying Lewis' marriage.
