Hi Mac:

Re: BD as " The Tramp ".

The film here was titled " Pocketful of Miracles "

The name of the Film is "Pocketful Of Miracles". Bette Davis plays "Annie" a local homeless alcoholic who sells big shiny red apples. A local gangster (Glenn Ford) buys one from her everyday believing it brings him luck. "Annies" daughter (Ann Margaret) lives in Spain and is about to marry the Ambassadors son, she writes to her mother saying they are coming to visit her. With the help of Glenn Ford they "clean" her up, find her a "husband" and the whole point of the charade is to make the visitors believe that "Annie" is a real well to do "lady". Bette Davis is brilliant as usual as the "tramp" and Glenn Ford shows his comedic side. A well entertaining film.

Its called "A Pocketful Of Dreams" starring Bette Davis. Glenn Ford is a local gangster who buys a red apple from Bette Davis everyday because he thinks it brings him luck. Bette Davis plays "Annie" a homeless alcoholic, but when she gets a letter from her daughter (played by Ann Margaret who is marrying the son of the Ambassador to Spain!) who lives in europe saying shes coming for a visit, she gets help from Glenn Ford who "cleans" her up, gets her a "husband" for the occasion and the whole charade is to make the visitors believe she is a well to do "Lady". I bought this DVD years ago, being a Bette Davis fan, it really is funny and sad, Bette Davis is as usual brilliant as the "tramp".

Quite right. Just a minor adjustment: sequel was Belles on their Toes (with an 'e')

Ingrid Bergman made En kvinnis ansikte in 1938. It was remade in 1941 with Joan Crawford as "A Woman's Face."

ive always wanted to find an old black and white romantic film i saw as a kid and made a deep impression on me. i always thought it was called "the last wave" (its not the aussie film of that name).all i remember was a man falling in love with a beautiful statue of a woman which comes to life. its a doomed love affair as a tsunami wave sweeps in and like atlantis drowns the whole city. does this ring a bell with anyone??

The film is a pockeful of miracles, only watched it the other day starring Bette Davis as Apple Annie and Ann Margaret plays her daughter. As mentioned a ganster buys an apple each day from Annie for luck. Apple Annie has a daughter who has been brought up in Europe and Apple Annie has been living a lie about her circumstances. The Ganster helps Annie to cover up her lies about her circumstances and helps her to diceive here daughter. Not to spoil it for you excellent movie 5 stars and well worth seeing. A great classic.

"Cheaper by the Dozen" with Clifton Webb & Myrna Loy?

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Apr 2011 11:51:31 BDT
It's "A Woman's Face" directed by George Cukor (circa 1940) with Joan Crawford, Conrad Veidt and Melvyn Douglas for MGM, based on a Swedish film something like "Kvinna's Ansiktet" with, I think, Ingrid Bergman in her pre-Hollywood days.

Actually I don't think it's "Cheaper by the Dozen" as Professor Gilbreth(Clifton Webb) doesn't die, or if he does it's at the end. In fact there is a sequel called "Belles on Their Toes" where the wife(Myrna Loy) carries on his work.

Hi Joyce:

Gets to you doesn't it ?
I clearly remember the final scene, where the husband is standing by the door, directing his " blind "
wife towrds the door, which he opens, and as the storm keeps crashing up, a flash of lightning shows
that the landing nd stairs down o bach etc below, has gone, and we see the huge rocks, raging sea and lightning flases.. and the3 musics swells up and is booming away as the wife gets nearer to the door..and then another lighning flas and she sees --no steps etc.

Great stuff at the time, so why can't I remember the title ?

Anyway, thanks for looking -- I"m going to need all the help I can with this one.

Have a great Noo Year --- did you see our Sydney New Years Eve Fireworks --- real beauty mate ...
