Some Movie Notes

March 22, 2016

There are some notes I gathered while watching a couple of movies around the television dial/remote control yesterday.

In “Come Blow Your Horn,” a 1963 film, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bill are brothers with the last name Baker.

Many years later (1989), real life brothers Jeff and Beau Bridges starred in a film along with Michelle Pfeiffer as and called “The Fabulous Baker Boys.”

Also from 1936 in the film, “The Law is in Her Hands,” (starring Margaret Lindsay), a character/organized crime type is named Frank Gordon. (Lyle Talbot featured in a nice TCM segment this month plays “Gordon.”).

Years later, on the television show “The Untouchables,” actor Bruce GORDON appeared regularly as real life organized crime type, FRANK Nitti.

I remember Michelle Pfeiffer, pictured above, truly impressing legendary “Tonight Show” host, Johnny Carson in her first appearance on that show, I believe as another version of the film, “Grease” was being promoted.
