Honest and Brave was Mr. Montgomery

TCM is showing Lady in the Lake (1947) on demand until March 31st.  Now I know everyone has seen this movie, but it's the intro and exit comments by TCM's Eddie Muller that I want to recommend to you.  They are quite interesting, some good tidbits not in your basic write-up on the movie.  The exit comments include some really nice words about Mr. Montgomery.  Made my day!

Photo Caption:  "On the first day of production, Montgomery holds an on-the-set conference with George Haight (right) the producer; Stan Fisher (second from right) who wrote the screenplay; and Dolph Zimmer, the assistant Director."

**Thanks to Debbie for finding and sharing the news about the comments.

This is actually one of the few Montgomery films I haven't seen yet. But I have it set to record on my DVR soon.

Brittaney! Sorry your comment was overlooked for so long. (2019 has not been the best of years for me!) And, yes, everyone should see Lady in the Lake at least once. You have to admire Mr. Montgomery for trying to do something different. He obviously put a lot of effort into it, a trademark of his when he was interested in a project. He deserves a hand for just finishing the movie, almost the way he wanted it done!
