One Film Star I could watch all day. I have only seen him in one film I didn't like
The great CHARLES BRONSON. He made some great films in my opinion.

What a star this guy was, a monster of a man with a great character. He made so many films, when I was growing up he seemed to be on the telly all the time.

Of the old ones, I liked James Cagney, he was very versatile.

What about the Duke, horrible man but a great actor. I hated musicals even though I would like some of the songs in the films. I couldn't stand the way they just suddenly broke out into song during a conversation.

I'm a fan of old black & white films, not the B movies because some of them were absolute rubbish. Though I could sit and watch some of the classics for ages.

John Wayne is there Phil, let's hear about more of the old names, there were enough of them.

without going to much in the past as im not a film buff - the posts did remind me that as a young child growing up in Gem street I used to walk up towards moor street there was a cinema that just ran cartoons, and the first real musical I saw was seven brides for seven brothers which i saw at the end of our street at the Gaiety

thanks for the memory jog

i was a fan of robert mitchum, cant remember any films he was in tho, cowboys i think. as children we used to go to saturday cinema club, the serial film would always leave on a cliff hanger. happy days.
