    I've seen Sanders in Confessions of a Nazi Spy and Ivanhoe(right off the top of my head). I don't recall Conway but I must've seen him. I'll ck out his filmography.

      Don't mistake him for Tim Conway.

      Or maybe do.

          I looked at some of his filmography and don't really recall seeing any of the 'Tom' movies. Was it him playing Dorf?

            It was on TCM. They're running Summer Under The Stars and it was Ronald Colman's turn on Tues(24 hrs, 6am-6am).

              Again, everything else fits the bill of southerners screwing the minority, but we're talking about thousands, not millions.
              I wonder if that includes the rights to the story as well...of which he said he got nothing.

              I remember a few years back hearing he hated the film because it made him look stupid and in need of saving. I never realized how bad he was mischaracterized and the story was inflated though.

                So he was let into the elite catholic school because he was stupid and unathletic? Gee I wonder who thinks that...

                  If you have ever seen the Falcon movies, Tom took over for George as the new Falcon when he was killed (I assume Sanders was killed off because of studio politics). TBH George Sanders is a much better actor -- his role in All About Eve is lovely, the second-best in the best-acted movie in history after Baxter -- but they both have incredible voices. Tom also did a ton of radio which is where I fell for him. My personal favorite role of his was in the Val Lewton movie I Walked with a Zombie, which is the only zombie movie that can hold a candle to Night of the Living Dead, albeit as a very distant second.

                  These were extraordinarily classy actors who do not inhabit our moribund, commercial, meatball universe. The last was I suppose Price, though he vamped most of the time (not that I minded, as he has such wonderful comic timing).

                  • Last night, I watched Queen of the Damned with Aaliyah (right before she died). It was awful, but in a good way. It tried to be creepy, but it ended up being hilarious.

                    I also watched The Craft (1996) with Fairuza Balk and Neve Campbell. Mmm, Neve Campbell. It was creepy, the effects were practical, and the way it ended left me wanting more. Also, Fairuza Balk in this film is still *transition goals.*

                      I've never watched any of the Falcon movies. You mentioned IWWAZ and I had to pause for a second but it was White Zombie I've seen. It's funny, every time I see V Price or even his name I think of Basil Rathbone.

                        The Falcon radio show was far better, IMO. They dumbed the character down for movies.

                        In 1941, RKO Radio Pictures launched a Falcon movie series, but that was based on a different character (Gay Lawrence) by a different author (Michael Arlen). Only the popularity of the film series prompted the radio series; the film and radio series were otherwise unrelated. The radio series was based on the Drexel Drake character. No explanation for the nickname was ever mentioned in any of the dramatizations.
                        Well, that sure explains it!!!

                          White Zombie is a great movie, too.
