Saying Goodbye to My Dad and CASABLANCA

“Where I’m going, you can’t follow.” Not the most famous line in Rick’s closing speech to Ilsa, but the one that stays with me. Casablanca was the last movie I ever saw with my Dad, who I followed everywhere. We were true kindred spirits, and there was no one I saw more movies with. Saturday mornings were …

Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant: An “Indiscreet” Friendship

“A kiss could last three seconds. We just kissed each other and talked, leaned away and kissed each other again. Then the telephone came between us, then we moved to the other side of the telephone.

I am told that when surface beauty is gone, the real woman emerges.” —Linda Darnell She never lived long enough for her beauty to fade. But a real woman—and a real actress—did emerge, and deserve to be …

Charles Boyer: A Birthday Celebration

Happy Birthday, Charles Boyer! I love you beyond all reason and sanity. This photo, taken during one of his many shifts at the Hollywood Canteen, really seems to capture him: warm, real, and totally un-movie-star-ish. Absent are the silly studio-mandated shoe lifts and toupee, which he never wore off camera—and you can see how hideously disappointed Claudette …
