On My Mind

     Marilyn Monroe's 1954 visit to Korea brightened a lot of servicemen's lives.  She and Joe DiMaggio were on their honeymoon when she got the call.  But did Marilyn say no?  Absolutely not!  She flew right over there and got to work, cheering up over 100,000.  Get a behind the scenes look at her visit.

Joyous Jean

     I'm sure I'm not the only one who was glued to my television yesterday for Jean Harlow's TCM Summer Under the Stars day.  As long time readers know, I'm generally not a fan of Summer Under the Stars.  I used to be, but just like with Oscar month, is tending to feature more and more recent material, 1970's stars, and the like.  When I think of the term "classic film star" I don't think Angie Dickinson, featured August 18th.  I understand she is well known, had a lot of roles, and is part of pop culture, but when I think 'classic' she's probably about the last person I would think of.  It's all about context.  Bette Davis or Angie Dickinson - which one is more of a 'classic film star'?  There's no comparison.  And yes, Summer Under the Stars features Bette Davis and Spencer Tracy for the umpteenth time.
