  • Thanks for a month of Melvyn Douglas!

    As a movie buff, I was very familiar with Melvyn Douglas movies of the 1960's and 70's. ( I am still scared when I watch GHOST STORY and THE CHANGELING.) But, thanks to TCM, I now know Melvyn Douglas of the 30's and 40's. It is my opinion that he is one of the greatest (and under-recognized) actors in Hollywood. His performances as a romantic leading man equal those of Cary Grant and William Powell (also my favorites) and neither one of them went on to make movies as they aged into their 80s and win Academy Awards! Please keep showing his films so others can discover this acting treasure!

  • What a stunner!

    Beautiful, charming and oh! So suave. Certainly drool-worthy. Watch everything I can, and had no idea he'd worked up until his passing; discovered him only since watching TCM! Lovely fellow that you feel you could admire just as well in real life, like a very dear friend. Was happy to find he was the grandfather of Ileana Douglas; I'm a fan of her comedic work, some of his enormous talent has rubbed off.

    Great to see Melvin Douglas in "Americanization of Emiy". I always was watching James Garner and Julie Andrews. I have enjoyed all of Melvin's earlier films and he had class.

    Melvyn Douglas was probably the smoothest, most charming actor during the Golden Age of Hollywood. He was brilliant in both drama and comedy, and complimented his leading ladies so well. He never tries too hard to grab the attention of the audience, and yet I usually remember and enjoy his performance over those of the women who were supposed to be the stars of the films! He doesn't get the recognition he deserves for the fine films he made, even though he won two Academy Awards, but I hope that as time passes (and more of his films are shown on TCM)people will realize the remarkable legacy he has left behind.

    Melvyn Douglas is so natural on screen, watching him is like a visit with a friend, you feel like you are in on the joke with him. He is a wonderful actor and will win you over quickly. I watch everything I can find with him in it and have found some real treasures. I am a huge fan, he is easy to fall for-

  • Theadora Goes Wild (with Melvyn)!

    Never was I really a fan of screwball, romantic comedy until I saw "Theadora Goes Wild" starring Melvyn Douglas and Irene Dunne. The plot is simple enough, sweet enough, but to my surprise this very young man Melvyn Douglas stole every scene he was in. The name kept bothering me where did I know this charming man from? Finally it hit me: Ghost Story, Hud, The Changeling, all done as a senior actor. Not only did this man's career span decades, he had something interesting going for his performances at all stages of his career. In "Theadora..." he is very funny, charming, singing, sweetly blackmailing, and generally flirting his way throughout as a scandalous book cover artist all while harboring a secret of his own.... Watch for the crazy dueling, singing scene. As well one of my favorite scenes: when he puts his head on Dunne's lap and asks her to feed him berries. The naturalness of the scene, and the amusing back and forth dialogue is a treat. Douglas has this oddly endearing way of speaking where his voice seems slightly gruff, almost older than his years, but will suddenly do a higher pitched sound that makes me giggle every time. Though not the typical leading man, I think that is what recommends Douglas most, he is a an ordinary American man who you just can't forget....
