  • Steve Lensman on Robert Young MoviesJeezus nearly 100 films on the chart! And I've only seen 4, embarrassing. :) When I was young I only knew Robert Young as Marcus Welby MD, later I found out he was a popular actor in Hollywood's heyday. I don't think I've seen Secret of the Incas, maybe when I was a kid but I can't remember it. It's supposed to have been the inspiration for the Indiana Jones series. I have seen Northwest Passage the chart topper on the page. Good work as always Bruce. Plenty of movie stats here. Vote Up!
  • BOB on Howard Keel MoviesBRUCE POSTSCRIPT TO MY HOWARD KEEL COMMENTS: DAN-LIKE LINKS TO YOUR MENTION OF EDWARD JAMES OLMOS- (1) Edward was in several 2011 episodes of the hit TV series Dexter in which Ed played a religious fanatic whose disciple was Colin Hanks the lookalike son of your idol. (2) You may already know that in a current post production sequel to the 1982 Blade Runner Edward reprises his role of Gaff and the star is again another of your idols Harrison Ford along with Clooney protege Ryan Gosling
  • BOB on Howard Keel MoviesBRUCE 1 I agree that a $2 billion gross for such a short top star period is impressive but again whilst Howard definitely made a considerable contribution to his movies we are faced with the quandary as to how much of a stand-alone box office attraction he actually was when one considers the following points: (1) He was in 11 major musicals/romantic comedies/fantasies on the screen and in 10 of these he played second fiddle to his female co-stars some of whom were big box office attractions in their own right and he was ALWAYS billed below every one of...
  • Laurent on Howard Keel MoviesHi Bruce, Glad you like it. Thanks for your kind words about it.
  • Cogerson on AboutGood stuff Laurent....thanks for sharing
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Bob 1. Good point about Keel arriving at the end of the musical peak....but I think a 2 billion gross decade shows he got to surf many musical waves. 2. I had no idea the old guy on Dallas had been a major movie star when I was watching Dallas when I was a kid. 3. I get Howard Keel mixed up with Harve Presnell and Howard Duff. Maybe one day I will get them right in my head...lol. 4. I can safely say that I am not a figment of your imagination.....yes my comments have slowed...but I have...
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Steve 1. Tally counts....Lupino 11, you 10, Flora 6, me and Laurent at 2. My lack of enjoying musicals has hurt my tally count here. 2. As for A.I. doing these pages....gotta admit...the last few weeks have been pretty crazy. From major sickness in my house (bronchitis to WoC getting pneumonia) to Bryan and his family visiting....my spare time has been greatly reduced. Still I have managed to write 8 new pages in 25 days....that is almost a new page every 3 days....plus 1 new You Tube video. 3. Your Keel video got me thinking I should do a...
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Pierre.....glad we were able to give Mr. Keel a moment in the sun. Thanks for the nice words about the website. :)
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Dan 1. Thanks for the lists of information on Howard Keel. 2. I rarely watch movies on television.....must of my movies I watch are on DVD.....so I have never picked up Seven Brides for Seven Brothers to watch.....but like many of these UMR subjects...I tend to watch their movies after writing a page on them....I am sure that is a movie that I will be seeing soon. 3. You are right about it being surprising that Cameron Diaz and Howard Keel appeared in the same movie....that movie looks like it was a straight to home entertainment movie. 4. Not...
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Lupino....I agree with Pierre's comment...glad you had a good vacation and glad you to see a new comment from you. My oldest son and his family (my daughter-in-law and two grandkids) arrived from Alaska for a surprise Father's Day present...they have been here for two weeks now....and we have pretty much been having one really long family vacation. Lots of golf and amusement parks these last 13 days.....it has been a blast...but UMR has had to take a back seat for sure.
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Lupino.....11 is the leader in the club house. Tally counts so far....you 11, Flora 6 and me and Laurent at 2. I am not a huge musical fan so that is my reasoning for not having a better tally count. I figured when Steve did his recent Keel video...maybe it was time to release the stats I had on this actor. You are correct it was pretty over for him by the end of the 1950s.....but he became famous for his role on Dallas. I had no idea he was a singer when I was a kid watching that...
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Laurent. Funny stuff about Howard who? I am not too aware of him either....and my tally count is tied with you. Glad you enjoyed this table of information. I have been enjoying reading your 1920 box office pages....good stuff for sure.
  • Dan on Robert Young MoviesReally churning them out there are we. Robert Young was never on the Oracle of Bacon Top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list. Even when the first list was compiled in 2000 Bob hadn't made a film in 46 years, giving it all up for Father Knows Best and Marcus Welby. There are only 5 people on the current list who worked with Bob and they have all passed on. 245 MICKEY ROONEY Death on the Diamond (1934) 245 MICKEY ROONEY West Point of the Air (1935) 247 CHARLTON HESTON Secret of the Incas (1954) 592 JOHN GIELGUD Secret...
  • Daniel on Walter Brennan MoviesMr. Brennan is surely a western movie icon Under rated and he stole the show in all his scenes. Just his voice is all ya need, I reckon.
  • Laurent on AboutHi everybody, Top 31 to 40 of the US box office 1922. http://www.boxofficestory.com/box-office-usa-1922-top-31-a-40-a130578006 Good reading.
  • BOB on Howard Keel MoviesSTEVE 1 Howard on the big screen has always reminded me of the character in the novel The Hired Hand who was “a day late and a dollar short” as I have felt that with his fine musical voice Howard Keel arrived at the wrong time in movies because soon after Howard debuted the musical which was his main stock in trade stated to decline as you and I have discussed before but luckily Dallas on TV later revived his acting career and as a spin-off I think that new generations discovered his voice. 2 I think that Bruce has...
  • Steve Lensman on Howard Keel MoviesWas this page uploaded by Bruce or artificial intelligence, enquiring minds need to know. Not that there's anything wrong with the page, it's just that sightings of the life form known as Bruce have been sporadic of late. [wink] A feeling of deja vu glancing at this page, I finished a video of Howard Keel not too long ago. I've seen 10 of the 26 films lsted on the page, favorites include The Day of the Triffids, The War Wagon, Seven Brides, Kismet, Kiss Me Kate, Show Boat and Calamity Jane. "Bless your beautiful hide, wherever you may be..." Good...
  • Steve Lensman on Norma Shearer MoviesHi Bob, thanks for the review, rating, billing info and comparison, it is appreciated. Happy you liked the posters and stills. This is one of those video projects where I knew I was going in blind. I haven't seen any of these films. The only one that really interests me is He Who Gets Slapped. Why? Because it's Lon Chaney, the man of a thousand faces. Norma Shearer wasn't beautiful and she was slightly cross-eyed but that didn't matter much, she was very popular, she drew the crowds. Looking at the posters she was top billed on every film except...
  • BOB on Norma Shearer Movies1 STEVE Norma of course made silent movies and her dominant talkies period was its first decade when female stars seemed to have greater clout than the males in Hollywood and up and coming Greats like Gable, Tracy and Grant usually took 2nd billing to the women. Historians claim that eventually finding that situation tiresome was one of the factors that induced Gable to insist upon a top billing clause in his contract when it came up for renewal after Gone with the Wind. Indeed it always seemed to me that from the 1940s onward the gender power balance in...
  • Lupino on Howard Keel MoviesBonsoir Pierre, yes, the holidays were great...VERY hot but lovely. Nice to hear from you again, too :)
  • pierre on Howard Keel MoviesHello Lupino Just glad to read you again I hope you vacation were good me it Will be in August See you and bye Pierre
  • pierre on Howard Keel MoviesHello Bruce, I Have Never Heard of him even I saw some films he was not the top. And that what I lové in your web site I am always learning. Have a good Time Pierre
  • Dan on Howard Keel MoviesYou've never seen Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, TCM seems to run it all the time. Howard was never on the Oracle of Bacon Top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list. These are the only people on the 2016 list who appeared with him. Arthur Tovey is gone but I was surprised at #247 who apparently had a cameo in a film I never heard of. 96 BURT REYNOLDS Armored Command (1961) 247 CAMERON DIAZ My Father's House (2002) 274 BRUCE DERN The War Wagon (1967) 478 JOHN SAXON The Big Fisherman (1959) 681 ANTHONY QUINN Ride, Vaquero! (1953)...
  • Lupino on Howard Keel MoviesHello! I've seen 11 of the above listed films, and my favs are Show Boat, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers and Deep in my Heart. On a smaller scale, I enjoyed Day of the Triffids, Callaway went Thataway and Calamity Jane as well as Annie get your Gun. Needless to say, I've seen Mr. Keel on numerous episodes of Dallas, too ;) He had a fine voice, and if musicals hadn't lost their mass appeal by the mid-50's, I think Mr. Keel would have remained a much in demand actor for much longer. As it was, his career was virtually...
  • pierre on AboutHello again Laurent I go on the page of Dietrich and I was very interrested because it gives informations that I did not know even I know for le studio des ursulines and the german version of the BLUE ANGEL. In Europe we speak with Number of spectators in US they speak about money and I think it is much better. And in the site of Bruce it is all the receipt and in yours it is the rental so it is ok for me.. I dont know that SHangai EXpress was réissued in1973 in USA , I know for...
  • pierre on AboutHello Laurent, Thank you so much for the information because I Have so much work in that days that I Have no Time to go and to see what happened on these sites. Just read the comments that s all Have a good day Bye Pierre
  • Laurent on AboutHello Pierre, A Marlene Dietrich page has been published on Box office story, with some datas for the french box office, but also for UK, Italy and worldwide. Good reading.
  • Laurent on Howard Keel MoviesHello Bruce, Howard who ? That's what a Frenchman would call you when you hear the name of Howard Keel. It has never been known. Yet some of his films have been small successes in France, such as War Wagon, Ride Vaquero (the only two movies I've seen on the list), Annie Get Your Gun. I did not know he had played in Dallas, interesting. Thank you for this new table.
  • Cogerson on Howard Keel MoviesHey Flora....thanks for checking out our Howard Keel page. My tally is very very small.....only 2....Calamity Jane and the War Wagon. So your total has me beat times over. I do however want to see Kiss Me Kate and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. Thanks for the tally and the comment...both are greatly appreciated.
  • Flora Breen Robison on Howard Keel MoviesThanks for doing a page on Howard Keel. I have seen 12 of his movies. The highest ranking movie I've seen is number 1: Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. The highest ranking film I have not seen is Deep in My Heart. The lowest ranking film I have seen is Callaway Went Thataway. My favourite Howard Keel films are: Seven Brides For Seven Brothers Calamity Jane Kiss Me Kate Show Boat Annie Get Your Gun
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey SteinHOF....thanks for stopping by and commenting.....glad you like that Keitel got some attention....I need to go back and add him to the our 1970s and 1980s pages.....I now have over 50 of his movies in my database completely researched....he will probably be getting a UMR page soon. Sad that Gene Hackman only worked a few more years after this decade....he retired while he was still near the top. Yep some of the legends make an appearance here....I was glad to be able to include them....as well as Brando. Good feedback.
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Steve 1. Yep you won the grand prize....I shipped it to you yesterday....let me know when it arrives and what you think about it....direct from the Cogerson archives...lol. 2. I thought you would enjoy Heston's final hurrah.....granted he had successfully turned into a supporting character in this decade....but box office glory is box office glory in my mind. 3. You are 100% correct....I left out JCVD....but I have now included him in the table....looking at box office....JCVD comes in 124th place...right behind Patrick Swayze and right before Ted Danson. 4. JCVD was a busy man.....making 15 movies that got...
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Helakoski....glad this page is one in which you are more aware of. I am planning on doing at least one more decade page...with a possible 2010 - 2017 one too. I think Tom Hanks owned this decade for sure. Harrison Ford in the 1980s and Hanks in the 1990s. Thanks for the nice compliment about this page.
  • BOB on Donna Reed MoviesSTEVE POSTSCRIPT 1 At first I thought that maybe John was our Ghost Writer but as you have pointed out he too seems to have gone AWOL. I doubt the validity of your suggestion that maybe my gentle ribbing has driven him away because he NEVER heeds anything that I have to say. 2 Anyway I have suddenly remembered that if you flick back through Flora’s past posts you will see that on one occasion when the Work Horse announced that he was going on holiday Flora asked him if she could substitute for him so she is now my...
  • BOB on Donna Reed MoviesSTEVE 1 I am sure that out there somewhere there is a viewer who is bitterly annoyed that his/her valuable and well though out comments have been ignored recently and who is tempted to say that whether or not the Work Horse is putting up the new pages such as the latest for Howard Keel the intelligence at work is anyhow "artificial"! 2 It actually struck me that maybe he had already delegated the site to someone knowledgeable like you, Flora or John and one of you was providing the latest material sort of like Ewan McGregor in The Ghost...
  • Steve Lensman on Donna Reed Movies:) Oh Brucie Brucie wherefore art thou Brucie. But who's putting these new pages up Bob, WoC? His children? Or maybe a special program that collects data on each actor on the request list and produces a new page at intervals? That must be it, it's all automated, the site is run by artificial intelligence, nooooooo! :)
  • BOB on Donna Reed MoviesSTEVE It is sad that WH seems to have lost interest in a wonderful site that he took years to build up. He obviously doesn’t believe in the saying that “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. When I am sad it sometimes mitigates the sadness for me if think of the situation in terms of a poetic simile and in the present instance it is comforting to remember the poem by Lady Carolina Nairne about the flight of Bonnie Prince Charlie*** [presumably from your distant English ancestors], Bonniey Brucie's now awa; Threatnin tis that to our sane, Mony...
  • Steve Lensman on Donna Reed MoviesHi Bob, thanks for the reviewing and rating my Donna Reed video, much appreciated. Glad you liked the pictorial presentation. I see you found Bruce's Donna Reed page, she wasn't on the UMR index page last time I looked. But I knew he had done a page on Donna. I wonder how many other names Bruce had forgotten to add to the index. Oh look there's the chief... no wait, false alarm. :) I think Bruce's interest in the site is waning Bob, sad sad sad, I wonder if he even reads our comments anymore. I've only seen a handful...
  • BOB on Donna Reed MoviesSTEVE: 1 I always regarded Donna Reed’s career as an uneven one in that she had plum roles in two of the most important movies of all time – It’s a Wonderful Life and From Here to Eternity – and yet spent a large part of her career in B movies such as the westerns Hangman’s Knot, 3 Hours to Kill, Gun Fury and They Rode West all of which are included in your selections. I can never recall her in the actual lead in any of her flicks and in the 1950s her movie career wound down but luckily...
  • SteinHOF on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sSo much information. Highlights for me? Harvey Keitel getting a mention. Love him as an actor. Very underrated. Gene Hackman almost getting a Top 10 spot. Just reinforces my thinking that he is one of the greatest actors ever. And seeing some all time greats getting on the list. Peck, Quinn, Heston and Mitchum really sticking out.
  • SteinHOF on June 22nd – Our First New You Tube Video in 9 MonthsSweeeeeeeet!!!!!!!!! I like the Goldblum back to back "Must Go Faster" clips. You should do more of these videos.
  • Steve Lensman on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey I recognise all these names, do I win a prize or something? ;) Hey Charlton Heston did very well on the big chart topping over 100 big names, I like that. It was Steven Seagal's best decade and aging action hero Chuck Heston effortlessly higher on the rung. You left out Jean-Claude Van Damme, he did pretty well in the 90s. Chuck Norris was fading fast and kung fu Bruce Lee has been dead for a quarter of a century. [sniff] And that's my assessment of the big stars of the 1990s, thank you and goodnight. Not enough? Okay...
  • Steve Lensman on Robert Mitchum Movies:) Haven't seen John in a while either, was it something you said Bob? Or is the UMR going thru the summer doldrums? [wink] I was looking at the AFI list Bruce posted on this page, the Top 25 Actors, the only actor I haven't done a video on from there is Sidney Poitier, who along with Kirk Douglas is still with us. Poitier should be on my next batch of actors after I've completed this latest round of classic Hollywood actresses.
  • BOB on Robert Mitchum MoviesSTEVE 1 I didn’t know Build my Gallows High was the original title for Out of the Past and thought it was the other way round but I find both alternatives very thought provoking. Anyway just to be sure maybe we’d better check with John in the matter. Remember how he chastised us when he thought we’d got Dick Powell’s Murder my Sweet and Farewell my Lovely the wrong way round! I think he kept after us on that one to almost the extent that he did over Crawford/Loy or the billing issue. 2 The Work Horse has gone AWOL...
  • Steve Lensman on Robert Mitchum MoviesThanks Bob, appreciate the review, rating, comment, info, trivia and comparison. Glad you enjoyed the video. I thought naughty Jane deserved some attention from us film buffs. And she was a memorable femme fatale in one of Hollywood's great film noirs - Out of the Past (UK title Build My Gallows High, which was the name of the original novel). According to IMDB "She quickly married crooner Rudy Vallee after fleeing a possessed Howard Hughes, who kept her virtually a prisoner during her first few months. An enraged Hughes pressured her and ruined the marriage. She returned to Hughes and...
  • bri on June 21st – Ranking 19 Chris Pratt Movies on His 38th Birthdayi love you chris pratt you are my hero
  • BOB on Robert Mitchum MoviesSTEVE My previous post is about your Jane Greer video and I've placed it on Mitchum's page as Jane does not yet have a Cogerson page.
  • BOB on Robert Mitchum Movies1 A film columnist once cynically observed that in Hollywood you couldn’t trust even your ‘friends’ and Jane Greer proved that this was a sweeping statement. Early in his film career Bob Mitchum had troubles with the Law so that it was apparently difficult for a time to encourage some actresses to co-star with him. However Jane who had worked with Mitch in Build my Gallows High [aka Out of the Past] stood by him and at a very crucial juncture agreed to be his leading lady in the film nor The Big Steal [1949]. For her loyalty in that...
  • Helakoski on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sLove this love this. I know all of these people. Glad to see Tom Hanks as the Top Dog of the decade. Wonderful page.
  • BOB on Pixar Movies vs DreamWorks Movies1 Though usually they are well made and earn piles of money I am not a big fan of computer-animated movies to which major stars lend just their voices and I thought it was very sad that Paul Newman who had a great physical screen presence and gave powerhouse performances in films like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler and The Verdict should perform his virtual swan song as the voice of a car in the 2006 Cars and I see that the producers have compounded the situation by dragging Paul’s voice out of the archives for the...
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Dan....actually Walter is in 126th spot...with Lemmon in 142nd.....the Walter Lemmon is the name assigned to the 6 Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau co-starring movies of the 1990s....at first I thought I should take it out....but for some reason I kinda of like them having an extra spot...lol. Good eye on spotting it.....that is one seriously long table. Thanks for the feedback.
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Bob 1. Thanks for checking out this latest decade page....I did a lot of research on this page....thus we have over 200 actors on the list. 2. Stallone did not have a stellar 1990s...the Rambo/Rocky franchises did not set the box office on fire like they did in the 1980s. 3. Demi Moore was very very successful when she and Bruce were married. 4. John Travolta's 21st placing is pretty impressive considering his career was pretty much dead in the water before 1994's Pulp Fiction....he was a serious box office force from 1994 to 1999. 5. Actually the inclusion...
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Mel Forever....thank you for the nice compliment.
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Eliska....yep Mr. Jackson was a very busy actor in the 1990s....his 40 plus movie output out did Mel by over 28 movies. Thanks for the feedback.
  • Cogerson on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sHey Terry804. I think you might be right...using the actual grosses would be interesting too. My entire database is set up to calculate the UMR score using the adjusted gross. As for SLJ....yep he was mainly a supporting actor for most of the decade....but his combined gross is very impressive. Thanks for stopping by.
  • Dan on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sThe return of Walter Lemmon at #156, can't recall anything he's been in. I know it's not Jack Lemmon because he's 142, maybe Walter Matthau perhaps.
  • BOB on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990s1 The top 15 Box Office table contains almost all of the 1990s great stars whom I expected to be there such as Cruise, Hanks, Arnie, Willis, Jim Carrey, Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts. I was slightly surprised that Harrison at No 17 in the main table did not make the 15 cut and I was SHOCKED at Sly’s low placing at No 76. Also I had thought Travolta would be higher The ex Mrs Willis does well at No 20, indeed being the 3rd highest ranked female in the entire main table. She and her other half could be...
  • mel forever on Mel Gibson Moviesyou should share this link too
  • mel forever on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990snicely done
  • Eliška G on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sBut Samuel like Jackson made a lot more movies say compare to Mel. That's why he is at the top.
  • Terry804 on Top Box Office Stars of the 1990sVery detailed information. My only issue would be that the movies are in adjusted box office! think actual gross would have been more interesting. Samuel L. Jackson seems to be out of place in the top position. Fun read!
  • BOB on Site IndexSTEVE 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.
  • Steve Lensman on Site IndexHi 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 recieved 10 out of 10 from my sources...
  • BOB on Site Index1 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 2 The excellence of the posters and...
  • Cogerson on Top Movie Stars of the 1980sHey Trina...all 4 were added to the table....only Ally Sheedy was able to crack the Top 100. Thanks for the suggestions.
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesHey Chris your comment has me thinking I should start watching House of Cards right away. His return to the big screen has to be better than last year's Nine Lives....now that was a bad movie. Though it did entertain my 8 and 10 year olds. I think Glengary Glen Ross is one of Stacey's favorites as well....he got to work with two of his acting heroes in that one...Al Pacino and Jack Lemmon. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the comment.
  • Trina Parkerson on Top Movie Stars of the 1980sRob Lowe, Andie McDowell and Ally Sheedy? I see some St. Elmo's Fire stars but not these or Andrew McCarthy.
  • Chris on Kevin Spacey MoviesHi He must be one of the best actors of his generation. His list of films in the 90's, LA Confidential, Usual Suspects, Seven, American Beauty and one of my favourites, Glengarry Glenross. Just a superb villain. But anything he has achieved on the big screen or the theatre has been truly surpassed by his role of Francis Underwood in House of Cards. It makes West Wing look like a Sunday School outing, and it is done so well that you wonder where the truth end and fantasy begins. I've watched him on T.V. do great impersonations of Katharine Hepburn...
  • Cogerson on June 19th – 1980s Top Box Office Star Page Updated – 60 More Stars AddedHey SteinHOF 1. I have Nolte's career 100% researched for the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. So I do not have much to do to be done with his page. 2. Other actors/actresses that are almost 100% done....George Segal, Julie Christie, Jessica Lange and so many others. 3. You are right about Jeff Goldblum...I have his 1990s done....I just forgot to do his 1980s .....I will fix that in a little bit. 4. Glad you like the update.
  • Cogerson on Ewan McGregor MoviesHey Bob. 1. Thanks for the feedback on Mr. McGregor. 2. Shallow Grave helped get McGregor and director Danny Boyle on the map. So far they have made 20 years together. 3. I liked him in the Star Wars movies....just a shame that the Lucas plots and dialogue were so bad. 4. McGregor is fun to watch during interviews....he seems to be the type of star that says what is on his mind...which I respect. Good stuff.
  • Cogerson on Ewan McGregor MoviesThank you Elaissa...glad you liked it..and thanks for stopping by.
  • Cogerson on Ewan McGregor MoviesHey Steve. Yep a Scotsman gets a page. I have seen 35 of his movies. I have seen all of your favorites. My favorites would be Black Hawk Down, A Life Less Ordinary, Moulin Rouge and Big Fish. I have seen Shallow Grave but have not seen either Trainspotting movies. I did not like any of his Star Wars movies...with Attack of the Clones being my least favorite McGregor movie ever. Thanks for the feedback.
  • Cogerson on Ewan McGregor MoviesHey Dan. 1. So he has only starred with 2 of the Top 10.....but 21 of the Top 100. 2. I see a Black Hawk Down a few times on the list but I thought it was going to be more. 3. 32 Oscar winners is slightly below average for somebody that has 50 movies. Fun list as always to check out. Thanks for sharing them.
  • SteinHOF on June 19th – 1980s Top Box Office Star Page Updated – 60 More Stars AddedHope you feel better soon. Like the update. Lots of non UMR people on the table. Does that mean they will be having UMR pages in the near future? Of those performers I most like to see a Nick Norte, Michelle Pfeiffer and Dan Ayroyd page. I think you have an error with Jeff Goldblum. I know he made more than 4 movies in the 1980s.
  • Cogerson on June 19th – 1980s Top Box Office Star Page Updated – 60 More Stars AddedAll this work is the benefit of being confined to bed......but I am so ready to get up and go out in the 100 degree weather that is currently in my area.
  • Cogerson on June 19th – 1980s Top Box Office Star Page Updated – 60 More Stars Added1. Been working on a 1990s decade page over the last few days....and this has caused a few side effects. 2. Lots of stars in the 1990s required me to go back and update this 1980s page. End result? 63 stars added to this page. 3. When researching non UMR page stars I have been accidentally almost completing a stars entire movie career....which means I have about 50 UMR pages almost completely researched. 4. Since Friday I have finished the research on 1,543 movies. But what does that mean? Well I will tell you. Our database had 36,765 movies in...
  • Laurent on AboutHey Bruce and others, Here the top 21 to 30 of the US box office of 1922. http://www.boxofficestory.com/box-office-usa-1922-top-21-a-30-a130519700 Enjoy
  • Dan on Ewan McGregor MoviesRogue Trader was a pretty good picture of it's type, before the Big Short or Wolf of Wall Street or Margin Call. I believe Boiler Room preceded it.
  • Helakoski on June 18th – Happy Father’s Day & Remembering My Dad’s Favorite MoviesHappy Father's Day Cogerson and all the fathers out there.

  • BOB on Ewan McGregor Movies1 Like Steve I first saw Ewan McGregor in the 1995 Shallow Grave which I think was his 2nd movie though he had done work in a couple of TV mini series in 1993. Shallow Grave was a low budget British film which as illustrated in the above table didn’t do well at the US box office but was nevertheless a modest commercial success with an actual worldwide gross of $19.8 million against a tiny budget of 2.5 million again in actual dollars. 2 Ewan’s performance impressed me in that movie and I was therefore glad to see him develop...
  • Sharon Perry on Shirley Temple MoviesVery interesting article! For me, Shirley Temple is a one-of-a-kind child actress, never to be duplicated. Born in 43, I didn't see her movies until I was quite old.....No TV in our home yet. I have watched her movies over and over and after having 5 children, I have shown the movies to them. Very few people don't enjoy a sweet, happy-ever-after movie! I still watch the movies as I have collected them. I have also had a "movie day" every now and then and invited my children's friends over. Thank you for this article. It reminds me to begin...
  • Steve Lensman on Ewan McGregor MoviesYoung Obi-Wan Kenobi gets his UMR page. The first movie I saw him in was Shallow Grave, followed by Trainspotting. I've seen 21 of the 50 films on the list, favorites include The Island, Robots, Jack the Giant Slayer, Black Hawk Down and the much maligned Star Wars prequels. I haven't seen the new Beauty and the Beast or T2 Trainspotting yet. Good work Bruce, the Force is with you. Vote Up!
  • Elaissa on Ewan McGregor Movieswhat a cool database. thanks for putting it all together and sharing it
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesOscar winning co-stars. Caine and a few others reach 50 and above...but most like Spacey are between 30 and 46 Oscar co-stars.
  • BOB on Kevin Spacey MoviesHI BRUCE 1 Thanks for the feedback. If you get a chance please look in on my 15 June post to Steve about his Russell Crowe video on Russell's pwn Cogerson page. I would be interested in your take on Mr Mumbles sending the pugilistic Crowe a book about "gentle" men. 2 Also surprising me was Russell's claim that the Brando friend who delivered the poetry volume said that Bud regarded Crowe as his favourite actor and so wanted him to have the book. I read elsewhere that DeNiro was MB's favourite US actor and that TV performer Peter Bowles...
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesHey Mr. Steveman 1. Thanks for the comment. 2. I am not a big fan of Superman Returns either....it was a one and done movie for me....and I have no plans to re-watch it anytime soon. 3. Tally counts...me 34, you 20 and Phil 14....so your combined total ties me. 4. I have seen all of your favorite Spacey movies....with Usual Supects, Seven, LA Confidential joining Swimming With Sharks and The Ref making up my Top 5. With an * by Moon....which I love as well...Spacey does the voice in that one. 5. I liked Elvis & Nixon...but not as...
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesHey Phil....you are correct....a 90s decade page is one of the reasons I got a Spacey and McGregor page out so quickly. The 1990s are proving somewhat difficult....since I keep finding people that should be on the list...that do not have UMR pages. As for Spacey...I think you are right....the same thoughts on Hurt work with Spacey...though I would say Spacey has maintained a higher profile than Hurt has.....but they are both quality actors. 14 is good.....but way behind me (I do not get to pound my chest too often when it comes to these tally counts) as I have...
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesI know your pain of having terrible internet service when away on trips or vacations. Just think only 20 years ago internet service was not even remotely close to being an issue when thinking about traveling....ah the addiction of being connected...lol.
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesHey Bob 1. Sorry it took so long to respond to your Spacey comment…been a bit under the weather lately which has created some not so nice neck issues that make it hard to sit at a computer…the joys of getting older….but Bette Davis did say getting older was not for wimps. 2. Good comment on Spacey and the influence by Brando. 3. Too bad that Brando/Spacey scene did not make the final cut….if only it had then I could have included that movie on the Brando page….lol. 4. Yep his television career has been pretty impressive…..but I have completely...
  • Cogerson on Kevin Spacey MoviesHey Dan....good lists as always....I greatly appreciate the information. Surprised he has only worked with 3 of the Top 10. 43 Oscar winning co-stars is a pretty good total. Have you noticed not many if these stars reach 50? Good feedback.
  • Cogerson on Ewan McGregor MoviesThanks Dan.....I fixed that error....his correct birth year is now listed.
  • Steve Lensman on Hugh Jackman MoviesHi Bob, thanks for checking out my Wolverine video, much appreciated. Glad you liked some of the posters and stills. One third of the movies on my list were X-Men / Wolverine films. He has a short cameo in X-Men First Class and an uncredited action sequence in X-Men Apocalypse. I agree he is an excellent actor and I was surprised how effective he was in the musical Les Miserables, winning the Golden Globe and nabbing an Oscar nomination too. You're right Bruce and I not only have the same top 5 but in the same order too, I wonder...
  • BOB on Hugh Jackman MoviesSTEVE 1 Jackman is obviously most famous for the X Men/Wolverine movies but regretfully that franchise is not my cup of tea. However as he is an excellent actor he has thankfully done other things that I could enjoy such as the crime thrillers Deception and Swordfish though you do not rate those 2 over-highly. 2 Certainly also I can have no quibble with your X Men/Wolverine POSTERS all of which I thought were top notch and I also admired those for Van Helsing, The Fountain, Scoop, Pan, Chappie and especially Logan Very interesting were those from Van Helsing, Australia,...

  • BOB on AboutSTEVE 1 It's possible that John and Bruce starting arguments about Loy helped boost her views on the Cogerson site - I suppose it would have taken something out of the ordinary to do that. 2 Certainly I think that John was responsible for my Deanna exceeding 1K in views on your site as John labelled her the "forgotten" woman and I think your very discerning viewers were affronted and were determined to prove him wrong. Of course we mustn't forget that Deanna was lovely to look at and your site deals in posters and stills so that viewers would...

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
