  • Cogerson on Laurel and Hardy MoviesHey Søren. I kept seeing their movies popping up on the Harrison Reports.....so about a year ago I started plugging in the numbers.....it took that look to finally put out a page on these comic legends. Greatly appreciate the kind words.
  • BOB on Laurel and Hardy MoviesCLOSING MEMO FROM BOB TO BRUCE TODAY 22 OCT 2017 You will see that in my 5.38 am post to Steve on 11 Dec last year I mentioned the 27 full-length movies that L & H had made and I am delighted to see that you have turned up box office figures for ALL 27. No movie stats buff could indeed ask for more. Even if we could get figures for their short features you would not really be comparing apples with apples if you tried to judge those flicks along side feature films especially as many of the shorts...
  • BOB on Laurel and Hardy MoviesDecember 11, 2016 at 8:54 am STEVE LENSMAN Thanks Bob, your review and observations always appreciated. Yeah I stuck to the movie comedies featuring both actors so The Fighting Kentuckian was out, sorry. There are fans who prefer their comedy shorts, The Music Box would have figured highly on that list, top 5 for sure, but it’s only 29mins long. I think the minimum running time for a ‘feature-length’ movie is around 50mins? Most of John Wayne’s B-westerns of the 1930s were less than an hour in length. I must have seen all the Laurel & Hardy comedies in my...
  • BOB on Laurel and Hardy MoviesBOB to STEVE December 11, 2016 at 5:38 am 1 I think many comedy actors can become repetitive because their type of talent can limit them from varying their roles and as Laurel and Hardy made 79 short films it was inevitable that those movies would perhaps seem more repetitive than others in the genre. 2 VIDEO COMMENTS (1) wisely you have stuck to their feature films and as there were 27 of those you have therefore covered the majority (2) when I saw that you had a top TWENTY I was half expecting to see a 21st and that...
  • BOB on Laurel and Hardy MoviesBRUCE/STEVE 1 We three had a series of exchanges when Steve produced his Laurel & Hardy video last year and I have taken the liberty of copying to this new page the main comments that we offered at the time. 2 It’s hard to believe that the exchanges and the video were just before Xmas 2016 and we are now fast approaching Xmas 2017. In fact thinking that the video and our comments were more recent I got very frustrated when it took me so long to find the posts concerned and had begun to wonder if one of my...
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Flora.....Tally count.....me at 21, Steve at 17 and you at 14. You are the third person to mention A Kiss Before Dying.....I will have to track that movie down and watch it. You could have copied your You Tube comment and pasted here.....Steve and I are just trying to make it easier on you....lol. I agree with you about With A Song In My Heart....it is a small part.....but an important part. Good comment....thanks for stopping by.
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Steve 1. Very cool that we did these pages/videos so close together. A Barbara Stanwyck conversation at work got me motivated to do this page. I am guessing the fact that Robert Wagner was in so many Jeffrey Hunter movies...that it got you thinking about doing a Wagner video. 2. I have 21 of the 46 movies. I have seen all of your favorites with the exception of Dragon: The Bruce Lee.....I would say Titanic, Midway and The Towering Inferno would make up my Top Three....with Harper just on the outside of a medal spot. 3. I agree The...
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Steve....Curse of the Pink Panther was the 4th worse in my rankings....losing out to Concorde 79, Play It To The Bone and Stopover Tokyo.
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesNo problem Steve....your video page crossed 1000 views the other day.....figure it helps out both of us.
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Bob....I think Steve got his video done before I got my page posted. So I guess Steve could claim I stole his idea....lol. Good review on Steve's video....which I just commented on myself.
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Bob....thanks for the correction notice. I guess that story has some Shakespearan themes that match lots of time lines.
  • Dan on Robert Wagner MoviesI somehow attached the 2000 people twice.
  • Dan on Robert Wagner MoviesIn 2016 Robert Wagner was # 271 on the Oracle of Bacon Top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list. Since then he has dropped to # 340. These are the people on the 2016 list he has appeared in a film with. 8 MALCOLM MACDOWELL The Player (1992) 10 MICHAEL CAINE Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) 17 TOM SIZEMORE Play It to the Bone (1999) 18 BRUCE WILLIS The Player (1992) 26 CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER Man in the Chair (2007) 37 SALLY KIRKLAND The Player (1992) 38 NICK NOLTE The Player (1992) 49 CLINT HOWARD Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)...

  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Bob. 1. Glad you and Joel see the young Wagner the same way. I tell ya.....one day you will be buying his book....maybe I will send you my duct taped copy for Christmas....lol. 2. I have not seen A Kiss Before Dying...but reading what he does to poor Joanne is very much against type....I will have to check that one out. 3. Interesting about Spencer and Wagner. I have seen both of their movies...with Broken Lance being the better of the two....can say I bought them being brothers in The Mountain. 4. I got a kick out of the...
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Joel....always good to see your views seeing the light of day.
  • test on The Frogmen (1951)I have to express thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of dilemma. As a result of surfing around throughout the world wide web and coming across principles which are not helpful, I assumed my life was done. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you've sorted out through your good review is a serious case, as well as ones which might have badly affected my entire career if I had not come across your blog post. Your primary expertise and kindness in touching almost everything was tremendous. I am not sure what...

  • Flora Breen Robison on Laurel and Hardy MoviesI have seen 4 Laurel and Hardy films: Sons of the Desert Way Out WEst Babes in Toyland Bonnie Scotland
  • Lupino on Laurel and Hardy MoviesI can't stand Abbott and Costello, but I have always enjoyed the antics of Laurel and Hardy- or "Dick und Doof/Thick and Thin" as they are known in Germany. Through the years, I must have seen all of their movies, but they were often not shown in their entirety on telly. Also, I have seen tons of their shorts, friday late afternoon was a must see for me and my friends when I was around 6 :) Probably the only Laurel and Hardy movie I'm not familiar with is their swansong Utopia, but judging from its final place on the...
  • Lupino on Helen Mirren MoviesI have liked Helen Mirren for such a long time that I really was shocked to see that I've only seen 16 movies from the chart above. But, as Bob already pointed out, she had a very active TV career going, and I have followed her series Prime Suspect through all those years, ending up buying the DVD Box and rewatching it all again. My favorite movie performance must be her AA winning The Queen, but I also love Woman in Gold, The Hundred-Foot Journey, Hitchcock, RED, Gosford Park and Calendar Girls. Not surprised to read that she's not harbouring...
  • Cogerson on Veronica Lake MoviesFixed. Thanks for pointing this out!
  • Søren on Laurel and Hardy MoviesNice, Bruce. I Know that most of the grosses are from The Harrison Reports but these guys absolutely deserves an UMR-page. Brilliant!!
  • Cogerson on October 22nd – Newest Page – Laurel and Hardy MoviesComment box is now activate....thanks for letting me know it was not there.
  • Anonymous on October 22nd – Newest Page – Laurel and Hardy MoviesWould love to comment on your new page, but you do not have a comment box on the page.
  • Søren on Veronica Lake MoviesHi Bruce The Veronica Lake page shows the movies of 2017...
  • Cogerson on 3 or More AFI Legends in a MovieHey Dan.....true Gene only directs...but 3 AFI legends got together to make this movie. I will respond to your Mirren comment in the morning....long day today. Headed to bed.
  • Cogerson on 3 or More AFI Legends in a MovieHey Dan....yep the 25 AFI actors and 25 AFI Actress Legends.
  • Dan on 3 or More AFI Legends in a MovieGene Kelly directed The Cheyenne Social Club, I don't think he appeared in it.
  • Dan on 3 or More AFI Legends in a MovieThese are for the top 25 in each category?
  • Dan on Helen Mirren MoviesHelen was # 145 on the 2016 Oracle of Bacon top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list and she's now up to 102.

  • Flora Breen Robison on Robert Wagner MoviesI have seen 14 Robert Wagner movies. My favourite Wagner films are: The Pink Panther The Halls of Montezuma Broken Lance A Kiss Before Dying The Towering Inferno I answered Steve's video on his Youtube page as I always do. I listed all the films I have seen in the video. One that was not included in the video because it was a bit part uncredited is With a Song in My Heart. I have also seen that one. He is not on screen long, but it was an important storyline.
  • BOB on Robert Wagner MoviesHI STEVE 1 Thanks for the feedback and the mystery "coming attractions".I look forward to them. 2 I liked Hart to Hart and MacMillan and Wife. Indeed both are nostalgic parts of my early years of marriage as I tended to be indoor more often than in my single days, and TV shows like those two and other such as Columbo were very easy to watch
  • Steve Lensman on Robert Wagner MoviesGood stuff Bruce and thanks again for the share.
  • Steve Lensman on Robert Wagner MoviesHi Bob, thanks for the review, rating, comment, infor and trivia, always appreciated. Glad you liked the visual presentation. Eventually Robert Wagner became more famous for his TV work than his movies, my parents were fans of It Takes a Thief and Hart to Hart (and on about the same level - McMillan and Wife). They weren't my cup of Earl Grey. It wasn't Star Trek. ;) Only one 10 out of 10 scoring Wagner film from my sources - The Longest Day, and three scoring 9 - Broken Lance, The Pink Panther and Harper. The lowest scorer on my...
  • Steve Lensman on Robert Wagner MoviesVideo and page only a few hours apart Bruce, first time ever. Synchronicity! :) I've seen 17 of the 46 films listed, favorites include - Midway, The Longest Day, Titanic, Broken Lance, The Pink Panther, Austin Powers (its been a while since I watched any of them), The Towering Inferno and Dragon The Bruce Lee Story. We agree on the number 1 - The Longest Day is no.1 on my video too. It doesn't seem quite right though does it? Wagner was only it for about 3 minutes out of 3 hours, but what else can we do, not include...
  • Cogerson on Robert Wagner MoviesHey Bob....very strange....gotta be the first time Steve and I have ever done that....just got through sharing his video on this page. All I can say is....Great minds thinking alike. Wagner made my radar screen this week at work....a friend was looking at our Stanwyck page and could not believe Wagner and Stanwyck were an item....later he was shaking his head in disbelief that we did not have a Wagner page too.....well now we do....plus Steve's excellent....it must be Robert Wagner Weekend...lol. I will comment more when the yard work is complete. WoC has stepped away from the computer this...
  • BOB on Robert Wagner MoviesHI STEVE 1 This is the first occasion that I can remember when you and WH simultaneously released a presentation on the same move star. WH of course was able to launch his page with a pontification from his Guru but whether that is a plus or minus depends on your viewpoint. I’m still going to keep you in the dark about my own! 2 In my post today to WH I highlighted A Kiss before Dying and I will always remember that Wagner vehicle as it showed that “pretty boy” Robert could handle a mature leading role if he...
  • BOB on Robert Wagner MoviesCORRECTION TO MY PREVIOUS POST House of Strangers was 1949 and not 1948. It was remade again after Tracy's Broken Lance as The Big Show [1961] starring Esther Williams and Cliff Robertson. Susan Hayward and Jean Peters respectively were the female leads in the Robinson/Tracy versions.
  • BOB on Robert Wagner MoviesHI Bruce: 1 I had to comment on this new page because (1) I have always liked Wagner (2) I find myself in unusual agreement with your Guru. I too didn’t think much of the very young Wagner but that changed when I saw him in the 1956 A Kiss before Dying in which he gave a chilling performance as a murderer. I will never forget the scene in that movie where Robert throws his girlfriend [the future Mrs Paul Newman] off a roof because she’s pregnant 2 I’ve said before that Spencer Tracy became Wagner’s mentor though initially on...
  • 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

  • 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 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.

  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.
