  • Joel Hirschhorn on Robert Wagner MoviesRobert Wagner looked a little too perfect in his youth, gleaming teeth, wide ingratiating grin. The years melted off some of this rich-boy glitter, and he matured into a capable actor. No 4 star performances in my book....but 9 3 star performances 1952 Stars and Stripes Forever 1954 Prince Valiant 1956 A Kiss Before Dying 1957 The True Story of Jesse James 1958 The Hunters 1962 The War Lover 1962 The Condemned of Altona 1964 The Pink Panther 1969 Winning
  • Bobby on Site IndexThis site has definitely continued to become better and better as time goes on. Love the dynamic update! Would you be willing to chat over email? I'd like to talk about using your site as a major source for some research I'm doing with top box office movies over the decades.
  • BOB on Request HotlineTHANKS BRUCE - will patiently keep an eye out for "Big Grey" as his pal Rory Calhoun nicknamed him. 2 By the way did you know that Universal initially had Jeff in mind for the Operation Petticoat that ultimately went to Archie Leach? 3 I think the ultimate decision was the right one as Operation Petticoat has a Cogerson adjusted domestic gross of around $385 million - in fact Cary's highest grossing film in the Cogerson charts - and although he did do some light comedy [Toy Tiger 1956] Jeff never had that kind of pulling power at the box...
  • BOB on Helen Mirren MoviesBRUCE 1 I’ve just seen Steve’s response to your new Dame Helen Mirren page [there go those Brits again giving themselves fancy titles!] but looking down Steve’s own catalogue I couldn’t spot a Mirren video so that if indeed he has not done one you have for once stolen a march on him in profiling an important Brit thespian. 2 Among Helen’s earlier work my favourite is the 1979 Caligula with Malcolm McDowell in the title role and in which the “naughty” young Mirren [to use a Lensman expression] showed us all how physically appealing she was. She had an...
  • Cogerson on Request HotlineHey Bob....I will move Mr. Chandler up the list....so he will join Swank, Wagner, Butler (Gerard) and Laurel & Hardy in the mixing bowl. Seems there always 5 pages in different stages of completion. Hoping I will finally be able to give Stan and Ollie their moment in the UMR sun next. Thanks for the Captain Pike suggestion.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Bob. I will admit when I first saw Anonymous' comment...that I was unsure about how and if I should respond. Lupino's comment saved us....lol. Trump is a lightening rod...there does not seem to be a middle ground. Glad your daughter liked the way we responded to it. Only on a few ocassions have we deleted a comment....and those were due to inappropriate language versus how dumb or how bad are page or rankings are. Thankfully the comments are back to movie talk and how bad the UMR score failed on our new Mirren page....that is so much more fun...
  • Cogerson on Helen Mirren MoviesHey Steve 1. Thanks for the Mirren feedback. 2. I have seen 33 Mirren movies....which (a) tops your 19 and (b) shocks me....did not know I was a Helen fan boy. 3. I am right there with you....it is disturbing that two voice roles and an extended cameo make up the Top 3 UMR movies....but I have never claimed our ranking system was perfect....lol. 4. I like most of your favorites....with Excalibur, Red, Eye in the Sky and the Madness of King George being my favorites. 5. Have not seen 2010 in years....maybe it is time to re-visit that one....
  • BOB on Request HotlineHI BRUCE 1 There are horses for courses as the saying goes and in the 1950s just as I favoured the likes of Peck, Duke, Mumbles and Laddie in the higher budget flicks there was a stable “stock company” players who specialized in programmers –ie B movies/and or part of a double bill – and whose films I ardently followed back in those days. Examples are Audie Murphy, Rory Calhoun, Dale Robertson, John Payne and Rock and Tony before they made the really Big Time. 2 Probably my two favourite 2nd tier stars were though Dana Andrews and Jeff Chandler...
  • Steve Lensman on Helen Mirren MoviesHelen Mirren... she was a naughty actress back in the day... and she still is naughty decades later! Hilarious as Jason Statham's mum in Fast and the Furious 8. I've seen 19 of the 31 films listed here. Favorites include the two Reds, Excalibur, Caligula (I watch it for the acting talent....), National Treasure 2, Furious 8, Prince of Egypt and 2010 aka '10 past 8' (as me and my mates used to call it). The Queen and Trumbo are worth a looksy. I'm looking forward to 'Trumpo' in a few years time (if WWIII doesn't break out) might be...
  • BOB on Donald Trump MoviesHI BRUCE 1 My own wider family is split down the middle about their affections for The Donald with for example two of my brothers adoring him and my son and daughter detesting him. It's a rather unpleasant subject and I'm sure that apart from any further comments on Mr Trump's actual movie "career" you will want it dropped. 3 However my daughter who as I say is no Trump lover disagrees with censorship and she asked me to say that she felt you handled matters in a very balanced way whereas others in your position might have been provoked...
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Bob.....lots of interesting things in this comment. (1) Theaters are still open here on Xmas....and they are very busy....even if the movie is not too stellar. (2) Love the Martin and Lewis quote. (3) You can recall top billing.....really?.....is that something you keep track off?.....lol. (4) Knowing the double bills is pretty impressive...sometimes I have a hard time keeping track of the movies I watch this week....when I am putting them into Letterboxd....much less trying to remember movies I saw together years and years ago. Impressive skills you have. Good stuff.
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Dan....I need to include Wolf Warrior 2 into my 2017 movie page.....it has made about 3 million here and as you say over 800 million in China. There seems to be some debate on the accuracy of their box office reporting....but apparently Wolf Warrior 2 has struck a chord over there. That is pretty cool that you have access to those movies at the College Point Multiplex...those movies do not play in theaters in my area....I generally watch them when they work their way to my local library. Hearing your movie watching details...makes me wish I would have kept...
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Dan.....good information on those film fanatics....the year I watched 1,418 movies....I watched almost 4 movies a day for the entire year.....I look back on that list and barely remember many of the movies....I look back at that year and wonder (1) What was I thinking? and (2) How did WoC survive that year?....lol. I know what you mean about the constantly changing personnel at theaters. It is cool that the theater in New Jersey celebrated the 1000 movies watched....that is spending lots of money and time at a movie theater.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Bob......I agree by the 1960s, Hope's brand of humor had passed. He was still beloved...but time passed him by....some of his 1960s movies are brutal to watch. As for Anonymous....I think Lupino pegged him correctly....a troll....that dropped that the comment on his first and last visit to the page Good stuff on Missouri Breaks, Brando and Robert Taylor.
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumSteve's Jeffrey Hunter video has been added to the page as well as we have added his Ann Sheridan video to our Sheridan page...good videos...Mr. Lensman.
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHey Steve....well once again...you have beaten me to the punch.....been getting requests for a Jeffrey Hunter page for awhile.....but you got his video done before my page....kudos to you. I also enjoyed that you gave Hunter a Pike shout out. Surprised The Last Hurrah scored so highly.....that is one forgotten Spencer Tracy/John Ford movie. Good stuff.
  • Cogerson on William Schaefer Warner Brothers LedgersThanks Taylor.....hard to believe but that was over a year ago. Glad you enjoyed the re-telling of that little adventure of mine.
  • Cogerson on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageThank you Nicholas Kenneth Skoblenick.....your kind words are greatly appreciated
  • Cogerson on Ronald Colman MoviesHey Anonymous....thanks for sharing your Top 6.....they did pretty well in our ranking system. Lost Horizon.....2nd place Tale of Two Cities...9th place Random Harvest.....1st place If I Were King....11th place A Double Life....13th place White Sister....8th place
  • Anonymous on Ronald Colman MoviesMy top five: Lost Horizon Tale of Two Cities Random Harvest If I Were King A Double Life White Sister
  • Nicholas Kenneth Skoblenick on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageInteresting site
  • Cogerson on October 19th – Useless George C. Scott trivia on his 90th birthdayCan you tell I recently re-watched Taps?
  • Taylor on William Schaefer Warner Brothers LedgersThis is an awesome breakdown. Love the history, the adventure, the obstacles and the photos that helped tell the story.
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHi Bob, thanks for the review, rating, info, trivia and quote, it is appreciated. Glad you liked the pictorial presentation. I knew Jeffrey Hunter mostly as the blonde blue-eyed Jesus in King of Kings and as Captain Christopher Pike in the original series of Star Trek. His character was played by Bruce Greenwood in the rebooted Trek movies. Two of his films scored 10 out of 10 from my sources - The Longest Day and The Searchers, and two scored 9 - The Last Hurrah and King of Kings. The Searchers was no.1 at IMDB with a score of 8,...
  • BOB on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHI DAN 1 As a film buff I always like the wealth of detail that you provide in your posts and have no trouble complimenting you on it. I have a reasonable memory myself and can remember things like both halves of many double bills throughout the 1950s [for example Holden's 1953 Stalag 17 was on the same one as Ronnie Reagan's Tropic Zone and Joan Crawford's 1955 Female on the Beach was twinned with a sci-fi flick This Island Earth starring Howard Hughes' one time mistress Faith Domergue who ended up trying to run him in her sports car....
  • Dan on Top 1000 UMR MoviesActually further away from 23000 then I thought. Current total is 22,342 with a Chinese picture Never Say Die the last one seen. Don't laugh it's been #1 in China the last 3 weeks and has made over 200 million in China (from Boxoffice Mojo). Saw it at the College Point Multiplex in Queens near Chinatown, Flushing. They will have sometimes 3 Chinese language pictures playing there at a time with the rest of the regular movies. Ever hear of Wolf Warrior 2, over 800 million in China this year, the most money made in 1 territory outside the 2015...
  • Dan on Top 1000 UMR MoviesA few years back there was a film about film fanatics, maybe 7 people who saw up to 7 a day in NYC. The Post reviewed it and I wrote their film critic Jamie Bernard at the time that I had seen whatever at the moment maybe 18,000 or so and she wrote like "That's a lot'. Some theater in New Jersey saluted 2 brothers who had seen 1000 movies in their local theater and it made all the papers. I've seen over 1000 in my neighborhood theater and the only people that know are my wife, my database and...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI STEVE 1 Jeffrey Hunter was one of Fox’s stable of young contract players in the early 1950s along with the likes of Robert Wagner, Debra Paget and Fox’s own 50s sex queen MM. Jeff actually made his screen debut in the 1950 Julius Caesar but film historians have commented that that particular version is nowadays most remembered for having the young Chuck as Mark Antony. Like Jeff Chandler Hunter sadly died prematurely of an accident and both were the same age at the time of death, 42. 2 My picks of the generally excellent posters are Red Skies of...
  • BOB on Donald Trump MoviesHI BRUCE: 1 Yes Critic's Choice was at the tail end of his movie career when he probably should have taken Mr Mumbles' advice and spent more time with his grandchildren rather than make movies like that one. Indeed some film historians reckon by the tome of the 1957 Beau James Hope's heyday on the big screen was effectively over. I liked Beau James though about controversial New York mayor Mayor Jimmy Walker and his affair with showgirl Betty Compton [Vera Miles of Psycho]. One of Hope's rare dramatic roles. 2 If you are right about your Anonymous pal he...
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Bob....I have actually seen Critic's Choice.....after the success of Facts of Life....Ball and Hope returned in this one.....which was not nearly successful. Seems I remember some trivia that this was one of the few times Hope acted drunk on screen....and that Hope hated doing that scene. I will be sure to avoid reviewing WoC's play....I will Hugh Grant it.....like his character does in Florence Foster Jenkins.....lol.
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumI thought I had seen Appaloosa fairly recently....but a quick check on my Letterboxd.com account...and I see I have not seen it in the last 3 plus years. Still I remember liking it more than Missouri Break.....and right there with One Eyed Jacks. Seems I have only watched and reviewed 6 Brando movies since 2014.....I can only imagine how shocked you are when your realize I am only averaging 2 Brando movies a year....lol.
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Lens Steveman....you are right....granted it sounds like Bob does not do need that suggestion....but if you do the Edited Comment....I could easily delete the comment with the error.....and your comment would be the way you want it to read.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesLike your comment In The Shadows....I was thinking the same thing yesterday when I saw it get on the Trending List....and I wake up this morning to see it in first place. I think Anonymous got the exact opposite result of what he or she was striving for. Glad you agree that the page should not be taken down.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Steve....I agree 100%. Lupino's comment is outstanding. When I first read the initial comment....I thought......"Oh man....did I put something bad in this page"....but after reading it and re-reading it......there is nothing I see....it is just stating he appeared in movies before becoming President. Based on Anonymous viewpoint.....all copies of Two Weeks Notice, Home Alone 2 and Ghosts Can't Do It would need to be removed from all places they have those movies are available for viewing, buying or streaming. Sad that useless leaders are not just here in the USA....in my opinion our political system has become too lucrative...
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesThanks SteinHOF.
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI BRUCE Mr Brando didn’t make many westerns but I agree with you that Appaloosa/Southwest to Sonora [its UK title] was a half-decent western, though with the bushy beard that ole Godpop sported for some of the Saxon movie the mumbling one looked less like John Wayne and more like serial western sidekick George Gabby Hayes. .
  • BOB on Donald Trump MoviesHI BRUCE 1 Bob Hope’s 1963 Critic’s Choice was a skit on SELF-censorship and in that one Bob plays a vitriolic Joel-type critic whose wife Lucy Ball writes a play and, lacking confidence and fearful of his reaction, pleads with him not to review it. 2 However he is a stubborn Bruce Cogerson type who insists that he must be impartial and it is his job to review her play. Accordingly he ploughs ahead and of course crucifies the play, so you can imagine the fireworks that subsequently flew 3 However more than half a century after watching that movie...
  • Cogerson on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesHey SteinHOF....good to hear from you....it has been awhile. The new search box is almost invisible....hopefully regular readers will find that hidden treasure.
  • Cogerson on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesThank you Taylor....it is greatly appreciated.
  • Cogerson on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesHey In The Shadows....I miss it too.....but there are so many other great new things here....I think I will quickly forget about that box. Thanks for the nice words for me and WoC.
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Bob....good to know we have finally found that perfect person....and to think you have been here all along....lol.
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Steve....the last one was a Top 500 UMR page....so this one is twice as big as that page. I figured you would like Ben-Hur on top of the mountain. That is 23,000 movies for Dan....and me closing in on 20,000. Are there other hobbies besides watching movies? I did not think so....lol.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Pierre....love this part of your comment...."a site which share one thing Love of Cinema, love of box office movies with Stars, Directors, majors or minors companies".....very well said. Greatly appreciate you sharing those thoughts. Paramount drives me crazy when researching their movies....but I admit....they have lots of great movies. Good feedback.
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHey Steve....just added your Saxon video to your page here. Plus I viewed and commented on your channel. I feel your pain of the error.....one of the few videos we have is on Susan Hayward....one of the pictures I used was Paulette Goddard and not Hayward.....it has been wrong for three years now....and probably will remain wrong for years to come. So no extra boost for Enter The Dragon? Thinking....thinking....I guess I will have to go with that.....lol. Good stuff.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Bob. 1. Great comment....you and Lupino phrased things so well. 2. I am beginning to think Anonymous was a one time commenter who had no plans to ever re-visit this site. 3. Generally we try and keep this site focused on movies....and keep a G rating.....so when I first read his comment....I went back and re-read the page to see what was so offensive. I guess Trump is such a lightening rod......it was only a matter of time before somebody complained at this page. 4. Love the quotes from A Man For All Seasons......thanks for providing another excellent view....
  • Cogerson on Ann Sheridan MoviesHey Steve. 1. I think if you look at the comment page....I am back and commenting. Got more spare time since finishing the remodel. 1A. About a week ago....I tracked down your Ford comments and responded back to them. 2. Actually working on lots of movie pages....Helen Mirren, Laurel & Hardy...just ot mention a few. 3. Wow....I actually have your tally beaten....did not see that coming granted....ok....it is 8 to 7...but it is still a victory. 4. The Angel movies caused some serious issues when putting together this page......your Angel movies made me laugh. 5. Kings Row is worth a...
  • Cogerson on Ann Sheridan MoviesHey Bob....like Steve commented....good suggestion in moving these comments here. #4 is no longer valid. It only took a less than 4 months....lol.
  • Cogerson on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesHey Mark....On all the yearly reports (at least I hope) every movie has the actual gross (estimation of course). I checked a few of the years...and they all had the information. That is 1936 through 1952, 1959 and 1976. Granted some of the "actor" or "actress" pages lost that column....but that was only a handful. I of course am willing to share specific performers if you want....just leave a comment....and I will share what I have. With mobile devices making up almost 45% of my traffic...I have had to reduce the number of columns we list...as we generally have more...
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHey Bob....good breakdown on John Saxon. I just re-watched him in Enter The Dragon. 198 IMDb credits and counting....he has been steadily for almost 65 years. I thought Appaloosa was a decent western....one of the Brando movies I liked from that period of time. I did not realize he got a Golden Globe for the role. Charlie's movies were modest hits.....what made them profitable were the smaller budgets. I really think Jason Statham is the new Charles Bronson. Glad to help push Steve's videos...and have a place to talk about them. Off to his video page right now...to comment and...
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Lupino...your comment got a great response. Almost makes up for Anonymous' comment. :)
  • Lupino on Donald Trump MoviesThanks to all of you for the kind words. I do love this page and the friendly, polite way we talk to each other even if we disagree on a subject. Enough said to feed the troll 👀
  • mark on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesWhy did you do away with the box-office tallies from the year-of-release? I have been using many of your figures on my blog Movies Ala Mark (moviesalamark.com) and juxtapose them when I feel warranted with Wiki and other sources. It does on occasion throw me when I see variances as wide as Victor Mature's "Zarak", which you post as #76 and Wiki's list puts it at #15. ??? (I do love your site)
  • BOB on Donald Trump MoviesANONYMOUS 1 We don't get involved in politics on this site and I will just say that regardless of politics I personally find Mr Trump's STYLE offensive - and the same goes for some people of the opposite political persuasion to him - and I can appreciate that certain people and demographics would not find him as amusing as Steve Lensman finds him. 2 However this site is very clearly not organised by "racial bigots" and I think it was unfair of you to pose the question that you did. Indeed I would argue that the site has almost a...
  • Pierre on Donald Trump MoviesBonsoir lupino, Great comment about this site, it is exactly what I think, a site which share one thing Love of Cinema, love of box office movies with Stars, Directors, majors or minors companies, personnaly I love Paramount but for world international box office it is very far from the best but I love the logo and its history so.... Anyway very good post....as usual! See you Pierre
  • BOB on Top 1000 UMR MoviesSTEVE: How does that benefit me? - I don't Make mistakes!
  • In The Shadows on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesI miss the search box but the update/upgrade/remodel looks nice. Like the Oscar links and the new scoring makes a lot more sense. You and WoC have done impressive work.
  • In The Shadows on Donald Trump MoviesHey Anonymous. I find it funny that your comment has made this Donald Trump page so popular. Not thinking this has had this much interest since it was a new page. Personally glad Mr. Cogerson is not taking it down. And I lean to the left.
  • Lens Steveman on Top 1000 UMR MoviesSo Bob, if we notice mistakes in our comments we could duplicate the entire thing again with corrections and post it ahead of the previous one with the word EDITED in the header, and if the corrected one has more mistakes we can post again with the words EDITED AGAIN PLEASE IGNORE THE TWO POSTS BELOW and if that one still has mistakes we can post again with[STOP IT STEVE!]
  • Steve Lensman on Donald Trump MoviesThat was a good post Lupino. The entire planet is going thru a phase where many countries have some of the most dangerous, most ineffective and most useless leaders imaginable in charge. Europe and the UK are no exception to this phenomenon. As for Trump, I have to admit I find him entertaining, but than I'm not American. :)
  • Taylor on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesRound of applause to you and your team.
  • SteinHOF on Donald Trump MoviesI do not like Trump at all. Probably going to go down as the worst President in history; but no way do I think you should pull this page. Like your comment Mr. Lupino. Job well done.
  • SteinHOF on October 17th – What’s New At UMR – Explaining All The ChangesThis awesome. Made your website even better. Love the changes. Thanks for letting me know that the second Movie box is the search box.
  • BOB on Top 1000 UMR MoviesSTEVE 1 I've lost count of the number of movies I've seen but let me assure you that anything WORTH seeing I've watched. It stands to sense though that I probably couldn't compete with Dan even if I could perfect my recollections as I still wouldn't be able to make all those comprehensive link-ups that he does. 2 They are great fun for any movie buff and when I'm working my way through them I have to take copious notes or I lose track of his many connections . It's a bit like trying to immediately get your head round...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube Forum1 HI STEVE. When I saw you had gone temporarily absent and conversely the Work Horse was once again sprinkling a few crumbs of comments to us my first thought was that you had taken over from him as the Scarlet Pimpernel. 2 On reflection though nicknaming him that is probably uncharitable considering the way W o C and her consort have been beavering strenuously in the background to complete the terrific revamp of this site. 3 We all benefit from that and whilst distance prevents us from buying them a drink to register our appreciation I have nevertheless raised...
  • Steve Lensman on Top 1000 UMR MoviesI was going to brag that I'd seen maybe 10,000 films until I saw your posts! I'm flabbergasted. 23,000 films? Thats more than Leonard Maltin has listed in those fat review books of his. What other hobbies do you have? ;) Ben-Hur no.1, wahey finally! Oh wait it's tied with 12 other films, oh well. :) I'm sure I've gone thru this whole list recently, how old is this page?
  • Steve Lensman on Ann Sheridan MoviesGood work moving those comments here Bob, I hope Bruce doesn't mind. Any recent sightings? Has the chief acknowledged some of the comments from adoring fans of this website? Were the replies automated? Does he have a special program set up thanking people who comment? Has he noticed that I post here sometimes too? Can we talk about Harrison Ford? [No!] ;) I've seen just 7 of Ann Sheridan's films, my favorites are Dodge City and Angels With Dirty Faces. Not sure if I've seen the various sequels - Angels Wash their Faces, Angels Wash Their Hair and Angels Need...
  • BOB on Ann Sheridan MoviesSTEVE/BRUCE 1 When Steve gave us his excellent Ann Sheridan page back in June I commented at length on her career and I have copied to THIS page the exchanges at the time between Steve and me because as you know I think the Lensman video and WH page ideally complement each other. 2 Besides (1) what Steve and I have to say is normally worth "syndicating" ! (2) my 2nd post to Steve contains one of my Myrna quips which will once more brighten up the day of regulars of this site (3) as Steve and I both chastised...
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumA bit late to the party - Hello Bob, thanks for checking out my John Saxon video, appreciate the review, rating, comment, trivia, info, observation and comparison. Pleased to see you liked the posters and stills. As you may know I was a huge Bruce Lee fan in my youth and my favorite of the few films he made before his untimely death was Enter the Dragon. I must have seen that at least a dozen times at the cinema. John Saxon was a charismatic presence in that film and didn't embarrass in the martial arts scenes (thanks to some...
  • BOB on Ann Sheridan MoviesSTEVE 1 Where is el capitan you ask. I understand he’s an admirer of method acting so it’s possible he’s working on an Invisible Man page! 2 Yes and Anne Baxter was the Oscar Girl and Myrna Loy was the Stand In Girl.
  • BOB on Ann Sheridan MoviesSteve Lensman June 20, 2017 at 8:24 am Hi Bob, thanks for the review, rating and info, always appreciated. Glad you like the posters and stills. We’re back to the golden oldies after a hiatus following Roger Moore’s death last month. Ann Sheridan would be a good subject for Bruce’s movie emporium. Where is el capitan is he still MIA? Sheridan was the ‘oomph girl’ but I’ve read she didn’t like that nickname. Clara Bow was the ‘It Girl’, Dorothy Lamour ‘The Sarong Girl’, Lana Turner ‘The Sweater Girl’ and Jean Harlow ‘The Blonde Bombshell’. Only one Ann Sheridan movie...
  • BOB on Ann Sheridan MoviesBOB June 20, 2017 at 3:55 am 1 STEVE Ann Sheridan who started in movies in the 1930s probably had her heyday in the 40s when she shared star billing with many of the male Greats of the Classic Era – Grant, Cooper, Bogie, Raft, Flynn and Cagney as well as with Bette Davis. Certainly when I began watching films in the early 1950s Ann’s movies seemed to be mostly small scale affairs though I enjoyed a few of them – Steel Town, Just Around the Corner and especially the 1956 Come Next Spring. Sadly Ann’s career vanished after 1956...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI BRUCE 1 Saxon was always a very relaxing actor to watch although he never really made the big time. In Enter the Dragon I thought that John's "class" as an actor ideally complemented Bruce' Lee's high octave action stunts and they therefore made a very satisfying team. 2 Also IMDB lists an astonishing 198 credits for Saxon including a lot of TV work so I guess he has never starved and I think I'll now start dubbing HIM The Work Horse Also of course he was a childhood and lifelong friend of Mr Mumbles and not many can claim...
  • Cogerson on Hanging Out With Jim “Catfish” HunterHey Pierre....very cool that you have such memories of Wolfman. It is amazing that a man from Hertford reached you in France....truly amazing. Great story from your past....thanks for sharing.
  • Cogerson on Top 1000 UMR MoviesHey Dan. 1. 23,000 movies is pretty darn impressive. 2. I would guess my total is approaching 20,000.....but I only recently started keeping better track of my viewing habits. 3. I have reallly enjoyed Letterboxd.com....as it is an excellent way to store the movies I have watched...since 2014 I have seen...2,599 movies (plus I am about 20 movies behind when it comes to updated my account). https://letterboxd.com/Cogerson/ 4. In 2013 I watched 1,418 movies....so that is 4,000 movies since then. 5. I bet it is fun to go back and see all the Best and Worst movies......how many notebooks do...
  • Cogerson on Hanging Out With Jim “Catfish” HunterHey Anonymous....thanks for checking out my Catfish story......one of my favorite "non family" memories of my life.
  • Cogerson on My All-Time Favorite TV ShowsHey Anonymous.....very cool story about your encounter with Lee Majors. Back when I did watch The Big Valley....Lee Majors was one of the biggest stars on television....as he was the Six Million Dollar Man.....I would watch him in primetime....then hope....he had a bigger part in The Big Valley reruns....he rarely did.....maybe that is why I did not like it as much....lol. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on my old tv memories.
  • Cogerson on Ann Sheridan MoviesHey Lupino....I did not even notice you had written Come September instead of Come Next Spring.....I even wrote that I had not seen Come September...when in fact I have. As for the TCM book.....going by memory...I think Margret made it.....but Sylvia did not.....but I might be wrong. I should have written down the missing ones....I know Lena Horne was one of the missing ones....she seems to be a good one to do a UMR page on. We are still doing some tweaks to the database....but my heavy lifting is done....for awhile....time to get back to producing new pages and comments....
  • Cogerson on Ann Sheridan MoviesHey Chris....thanks for checking out our latest UMR page. I agree with you about The Man Who Came To Dinner. That is one of the Sheridan movies that I have seen....and she more than holds her against Bette Davis. Davis was at the peak of her career when they made that movie. I think Sheridan, like lots of other former studio thespians.....struggled when the 1950s arrived and the studio system made them free agents.....even the greats like Crawford and Davis struggled. Her television show sounds interesting....I am amazed that I had not even heard of that show before doing this...
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Lupino.....your comment to Anonymous is elegantly written....and greatly appreciated. WoC loved it as well.....as her comment to you on the Ann Sheridan page is about this one. WoC suggested I avoid Anonymous comment altogether. This Trump if anything is poking in jest at Trump. Once again....thanks for a great comment.
  • Cogerson on Donald Trump MoviesHey Anonymous...thanks for the visit to our website. Not sure how to respond to your comment. I will say.....not planning on deleting this page.....sorry if that means you will not be returning. We believe in diversity....and have no problem doing an UMR page on any movie subject no matter of race, sex, religion or any other description you can think of. Hope you have a wonderful day.
  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHey Bob...So I am guessing Steve has given Mr. John Saxon some Top 10 You Tube love....will have to check that out. Good stuff on Saxon.
  • Cogerson on Grace Kelly MoviesHey Mark.....thanks somehow....I got the entire bottom three wrong.....but it is fixed now....thanks for the heads up.
  • WoC on Ann Sheridan MoviesYou are my new hero. Thank you. Very eloquent.
  • Pierre on Hanging Out With Jim “Catfish” HunterHello Bruce, I remember so well Wolfman Jack in American Graffity with a scen with Richard Dreyfus and ice cream which were without freeze and after one day in that movie place I was so angry that I could eat all the ice cream with Wolfman but .....he didn't ask me .... That sometimes the problem of movies.... And I think the photo of the page is from the film.... If I remember well his phrase was "have a Popsi...something but I am sur it was not ice cream... Good to see his photo Pierre
  • Dan on Top 1000 UMR MoviesI've seen nearly 23,000 films in my life not counting serials, made for TV movies or shorts all of which I've seen a number. You know I have lists connecting people and the last 24 years or so of the older films I see for the first time. Current pictures I log in notebooks and only put the highlights in monthly (like films I give 3 1/2 or 4 stars or in reverse 1/2 a star and 0's). That's easier to do end of the year lists but only for the past maybe 10 years. I've done 10 best and...
  • Anonymous on My All-Time Favorite TV Showsthanks for the response. I met Lee Majors when I was 10 years old. he was on the big valley and was friend to my grandfather who was lee's college football doctor and helped lee get voice lessons. lee needed to lower his vocal range for auditions. like you the big valley was not one of my favorites.
  • mark on Grace Kelly MoviesCaught a fluff--you have "Green Fire" co-stars off-base. Should be Stewart Granger and Paul Douglas.
  • Lupino on Ann Sheridan MoviesBoy, must I have been in my Gina Lollollollo modus, typing in Come September when Ann Sheridan starred in the forgotten, but really good Come Next Spring! The inevitable question to answer nr. 7: Are Margret and/or Sylvia included in that book? Really nice having the master of the house back on commenting comments ;)
  • Lupino on Donald Trump MoviesHello Anonymous, I am not happy with the current american leader either, but don't you think your reaction is a bit harsh? Why don't you take this site, as I do, as a "Fun Page"? Really, Trump has no place in the history of american movies, and Cogerson didn't even do a trivia section on him- more proof for his irrelevance in the movie world. Your choice of words, though, is totally out of the way we usually adress each other on this site. Just mentioning your president's name on your website is no indication at all for hidden racism....
  • Chris on Ann Sheridan MoviesHi I thought one of her best performances was in The Man Who Came To Dinner, although a supporting role, she really stood out. It's strange when her career really took off playing the lead in the late 40's, it seemed to end so abruptly by the early 50s. Again, Warner Brothers was overcrowded with female talent. The likes of Davis and Crawford would get first choice. Nevertheless she was a very talented star and it was sad that as her T.V. career was taking off, she tragically died.
  • Anonymous on Donald Trump MoviesI was liking this web sight before coming across this report which only promotes the racist bigot Trump. I will not return while this is still up. Don't be a racist too or are you a racist?
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube Forum1 STEVE Recently I watched Saxon in an episode of the TV series Quincy but my 3 main memories of him on the big screen are (1) suffering the indignity of Audie Murphy having to rescue him and carry him out of the desert and into town across the shoulders in the 1961 Posse from Hell (2) getting the better of Mr. Mumbles in a brutal arm-wrestling scene in the 1966 Southwest to Sonora [aka the Appaloosa]. Critics panned the movie but Saxon was perceived to have out-acted the Great Mumbler and John won a Golden Globe supporting actor nomination...
  • Cogerson on Top 100 Horror MoviesGlad you weather is getting better Lupino.....in the states we are preparing for winter.....so seeing sun might be a challenge for the next 4 months.
  • Cogerson on Ann Sheridan MoviesHey Lupino 1. Thanks for the feedback on our latest page. 2. Good to know that Pistols and Petticoats is nice memory for you and others.....not only had I not seen any episodes of that show....I had not even heard of it. 3. 18 is the highest total yet....beating Flora's tally of 16. 4. Good to see giving Joel a shout out......I like keeping the man's name alive here at UMR.com. 5. I have not seen Come September.....but I will keep an eye open for that movie. 6. Of your favorite Sheridan movies....I am right there with you about Angels...
  • Cogerson on October 13th – DONE! We now have a dynamic website!Hey WoC....it is going to take awhile to get used to it....but in the long run....it might end up being the best change we made.....thanks for adding in this requested addition....you are the bomb!
  • Cogerson on Top 100 MusicalsHey Mark....I think originally I did not include A Hard Days Night.....but it's absence was picked up by lots of readers....so I went ahead and included it. It is not a standard musical.....but it was one of the first ever musical video movies ever made. But I agree with your comment.....it is a questionable inclusion for sure. Thanks for checking out our musical page.
  • Cogerson on October 15th – BladeRunner 2049 – UMR Links, Review and TrailerHey Marcus....good to know we are thinking alike when it comes to Blade Runner 2049. I will probably not see it in theaters again.....but it will be part of my movie collection when it reaches home entertainment. Thanks for the visit and the comment.
  • Lupino on Top 100 Horror MoviesBonsoir Pierre, yes, sometimes even the little french I know can be useful ;) I can imagine how hot it must have been in France, for even here in Germany, after days and days of rain, wind and cold temperatures, the summer has returned- and what a difference a blue sky can make!
  • Lupino on Ann Sheridan MoviesAnn Sheridan came to my attention when I was 8 or 9 years old and her TV series Pistols and Petticoats was shown on german TV in a late afternoon slot. To this day, I can still hum the title tune...although I have no other memory apart from the fact that I loved "Grandma". Yet, I have not seen as many Sheridan movies as I would have thought- 18 from the list. As it often is the case, I have a weak spot for the ones that didn't bring in the money in their day, for my absolute favorite "stand-alone"...

  1. I think in your blog the other day you recommended a French website compiled by one of your fans from France who comments here. You had it in place of someone who does youtube videos of say the top 25 movies of some star. Anyway the French site is quite interesting, like seeing figures on the French stars themselves and seeing that a number of U.S. films were released there years after being first released here. I think the site is called Box Office Story. Somewhere once I read that there is like 35 pictures a week released in Paris as opposed to how many in America.

  2. Wow that was quick! Thanks for considering my comment and updating the page. I guess this means the pages of the relevant co-stars of the updated films may need to be revised as well eventually, but…one step at a time 🙂 I see what you mean about the Hour of the Gun. So it did bombed badly at the box office. Not surprising given its lack of high dramatic moments, though it was a credible, revisionist Wyatt Earp story with strong performances from Garner and Jason Robards. A bit surprised at the low rating of Skin Game. I think it was one of Garner’s best films and it usually has very good ratings.

    1. Hey phil…..I think there were 3 or 4 pages that have the mistake of me being lazy….I think with fixing the Garner page…that I am down to only needing to fix the Gary Cooper page….and yes….I need to fix the co-stars that piled on to my laziness. One day…..this site will be dynamic…and whenever something changes….it will change it everywhere on the website automatically. With the site….getting so big….I have lost of control of that.

      As for Skin Game…..wow…..it’s reviews have really jumped up since I first did this page back in 2011….it made significant gains at IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes over the last 5 years. That is another “issue” with my website…..I pretty much never go back and look at the review % when I am done with a page (just do not have the time for that)….both IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes have a constantly changing rating…seems lots of people have backed your opinion of Skin Game……as I have adjusted that movie’s critic audience rating….granted….it did not move the needle too far…but enough to get it out of the less than average rating and into the better than average rating. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. One of the things you will find about this website….we have no problem…acknowledging that we screwed something up…..we seem to do it all the time…lol.

  3. Congratulations, your web site contains a wealth of information and an interesting way to rate movies. I have a number of comments/suggestions that I would like to send later. But for now, I was reviewing the box office information for a number of my favourite stars (Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, Steve McQueen, James Garner etc..) and found some possible inconsistencies in James Garner’s page. I noticed as compared to last year, adjusted box office figures have generally been revised upward by 30% or more and I assume this is because of using more a more current dollar value. However, in Garner’s page, a number of box office figures were increased by only about 5%. Based on a review of what has been done for other films across a number of stars, I estimated that The Americanization of Emily, 36 Hours, The Art of Love, Boys’ Night Out, Duel at Diablo and Support Your Local Sheriff may have been wrongly adjusted. Also, while I do not have access to the Variety numbers, I note that Wikipedia indicates BO rentals of $3.5M for the Wheelers Dealers and $2M for Hour of the Gun, which adjusted should result in about $80-100M for the former (instead of $45.7) and $30-40M ($14.4M) for the latter?

    1. Hey Phil
      1. Thanks for the nice words about out page.
      2. These two links will explain what is going on with the James Garner page. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/2016/12/december-26th-just-realized-made-another-mistake/ and http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/sorry-i-was-so-wrong/
      3. So you will see a different table when you return…as I am about to update it.
      4. This does not effect Hour Of The Gun…..the source used on Wiki….says it comes from a book and not Variety…so many of Garner’s movies increased but not that one…as I already had the gross of that movie a little over two million.
      5. Thanks for the headsup on my mistake on the Garner page.
