|Bio and Links|
|Born in '42, four months after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. My parents had only been married for a year when the war broke out. My dad served with the Navy in the Pacific, aboard P.T. boats, in the Philippines, and my mom kept the home fires burning. I Grew up in the post war years of the 40's and 50's in a small southern town, and would not trade my childhood, or my wonderful parents for all the gold in Fort Knox. The best years of my life, and the best of any time to grow up in America. So, now that my life is drawing to a close, that my parents and their generation are gone, I place remembrances here for people I knew, and those I admired. Some of whom I loved. I think of Thornton Wilder's closing paragraphs of his famous novel, about death. "There is a land of the living, and a land of the dead, and the bridge between them is love, the only survivor and the only meaning." For my friends on this site, I hope your life has been as interesting as mine.|

|Paul Monaghan||Tom Bell.|
I did read your comments about Tom Bell, a very good actor, who started his career with depth of talent.
I thought the film..He Who Rides The Tiger, did show this.
Sadly, Tom declined a number of roles, which would have advanced his career.
|Never forgotten by Sweet Adeleide.||You said it.|
I just wanted to tell you that when I read your message to Ann Miller (the dancer) it's like you took the words right out of my mouth. I sppreciated your words about her. Good job!
I was dearly touched by your message left to Jennifer Jones, which so eloquently and passionately captured her life and her impression on a young romantic!My name is Tally Haugen, Im 53, and I think had I been born just a few years earlier, Id have loved to dance with you to a "Moonlight Serenade" or anything you wished! (Seriously enchanted by the dear words you left.)
I feel the same as you regarding that era of film. In my house right now i have incidentally, the portrait of another lovely lady, Carole Lombard, which hung over Clark Gable'd bed in Encino. , plus other items she owned.She helped me get thru 2 cancers and want to live, so One day I am sending her things "BACK HOME to INDIANA".. A posthumous THANK YOU! Fred AStaire too, my hero since I was raised on "The Late Show"..
Jennifer I appreciated more as I got older. I posess a pin she bought in 1947 during the filming of PORTRAIT OF JENNIE, (the gems twinkle like the Stars she and Eben saw that night!)
She and Mr Holden in LOVE IS A MANY SPELDORED THING?? The electricity and passion runs deeply all thru it..(Han Suyin was a strong lady , like her portrayer..)
ITs lovely u feel the legacies left by these people as u do..In this way what they left us will never be forgotten..

Bravo! Your commentary was somewhat concise, very insightful, and much appreciated by those of us who share your feelings about this legendary actress.
|Brian Gower from Wales||THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS|
Thank you for your kind response, and good to see you are of part Welsh origin. So as your ancestors in Wales used to say "Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda" (Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year).
All the best,
|Brian Gower from Wales||General Robert E Lee|
I was moved by your message of 2 November 2008 and thought it the best of the many hundreds I read. I also enjoyed reading your bio/profile and agree, as one born in 1948, that the movies of our childhood were really special. Kind regards, Brian Gower, South Wales, UK
