    I believe it's just a "what if" speculative musing on Noel's part. Bacall was a staunch liberal and surrounded by members of the LGBT community in Hollywood and New York her entire life. There's never been anything to suggest she would have that reaction to Rock Hudson or any other gay man or...

    Well, we really have no idea. I don't think we can say for certain what he saw and didn't see, can we? They finished filming a full year before he died and held it for a domestic release at Christmas 1956, eleven months later. That doesn't necessarily mean that no one involved got to see and...

    Well, I think I've either found the SOURCE of the story OR, possibly, someone else who heard the same story and chose to repeat it on imdb. In the trivia section on the movie they list this: Now I realize this certainly isn't a definitive answer, but at least I know I'm not completely nuts...

    If I'm remembering correctly, I believe that he told her the script was trash and she shouldn't do it. I don't think he was reacting to the finished movie, though shooting was completed about a year before its release so who knows? Again, I have no confidence in my memory in regards to this (I...

    Someone may correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember reading (or hearting) somewhere that that was Bogart's opinion of the movie and his influence may have rubbed off on her when she looked back on it.

    Lol. Well, it wouldn't be so bad if not for the unusual way I organize my discs. I organize them chronologically by release date on my bookshelf, starting on the left and working my way right. The shelf is deep enough to fit two rows on each so I continue in the front row and also work left...

    In fairness, though, one doesn't have to be a "Criterion fanboy" to say "I'm going to keep an open mind and upgrade IF it's an improvement." You may have bought the French disc 18 months ago but it was released in 2016, the new disc may or may not be a better transfer. I'm tempted to upgrade...

    You were the FIRST person I thought of! I really like the French release but I'm totally going to upgrade (providing this one's better, which is likely!)
