"SUDDENLY" WITH FRANK SINATRA AND STERLING HAYDEN MADE IN EARLY 1950s. LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL OLD CARS. MAIN PLOT IS THE ASSASSINATION OF THE PRESIDENT AS HE STOPS IN A SMALL TOWN. SUB-PLOT IS ANTI-GUN YOUNG MOM WHO BECOEMS PRO-GUN. WON'T SEE THAT OUT OF HOLLYWOOD TODAY.

FAVORITE OLDIE

mentioned have I ever seen. I was in military schools overseas from the mid 50s until mid 1961 and we didn't have movies or TV or any of that over there. I didn't see my first John Wayne movie until maybe 4 or 5 years ago. And none of the movies mentioned on here have I ever seen.

Damn Gary, you're bringing a tear to my eye

FINE Grace Kelly was. We were watching "Rear Window", another good movie, and it had the kids on the edge of their seats! Princess Grace steps into the room with a long silky nightgown on (all the way to the floor) and asks "How is this". My eyeballs bounced off the TV. It would have been less provocative had she been buck naked, as it was so elegantly shrouded, it was even more so.

I am fortunate my kids all watch the old classics. Sinatra was cool before McQueen. Many others too. Really great stuff from an era we will never see again.

Exactly.

. . . in the imdb article, there was a radio production of this story in December of 1952. I remember listening to it, and was really excited by the story.

It wasn't until many years later that I actually saw the movie. It is, most certainly, a classic . . . as it would have to be starring Bogie and Kate.
