Yes, Debonairness is a Real Word

The fourth Bob movie showing on TCM this month is The Last of Mrs. Cheyney (1937), tomorrow  at 9:45 EDT/6:45 PDT a.m. T'is not the greatest movie, but you do get to watch three great pros do their thing.  There are just too few scenes with Bob and Bill Powell.  Would like to have seen a movie with just the two as main leads, all that debonairness on the same screen ... lordy.

TCM is showing seven Crawford vehicles on Friday, perhaps a belated birthday marathon.  Right after Cheney, they will be showing The Women (1939), featuring the slightly different trio of Joan, Norma Shearer and Roz Russell.  A great movie, of course, all those women with their claws at their sharpest.  And Roz stealing scenes like mad!

Ahhh......Bob & Bill, two of my three great loves! I would watch a film with both of them in it a million times! Two very different men but both had such class and a huge amount of talent and charm ( charm overload!).

And you are so right about Roz in "The Women". She walked away with a film that had so much female talent in it. A WONDERFUL film!!!!!!!
