1940s film about a woman bringing up her family in New York, trying really hard to make both ends meet.
One of those emotional dramas, which was remade later into a TV series.

Good to see you here raja. that is a baffler. I will have a wild stab. Mildred Pierce. Joan Crawford. more clues please. Other quiz..English actor post.


No, not Mildred Pierce.

A clue for my question.

It was one of the earliest directorial ventures of a director, who won 2 Oscars for Best Director, and nominated as Best Director for 3 others.

Ok, another hint. Turkey-born director.

One is a 1940s film, the other a 1950s classic.

Ok, the film is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" directed by Elia Kazan.
Probably best known as director of "On The Waterfront" (1954).

I am currently watching it. Reminds me a little of the Hitchcock Hour episode An Unlocked Window. Both with plenty of intrique and a few chills.

Yes she was. Only because she was such a professional and a perfectionist. Drove studio heads, producers & directors nuts. Evidently she started this decades long spat between her and Crawford.. over a man.

Pelham was 1974. But that was basicly a train hi jacking for ransom. Remade in 2012 with Denzil Washington and John Travolta.
International? What sort of hint? I need more Mick.

It was easy for a sci fi nut like you Mick. I did not realise it was that popular. I often get this confused with Farscape which also had a long running tv series..a joint Australian/American production made in Aus. I am going to have a look at Stargate later this week. Like both Kurt Russell and James Spader.

I tried to put up another post after this one but the post wouldn't load. There' were plans in place to re-film Stargate as a trilogy but have fallen through. The TV series has a huge fan base with 3 different series over 17 seasons. Talking of Farscape both Cluadia Black and Ben Browder were in the last 2 seasons of the 1st Stargate series as well as 2 TV movies.
Oh and one other thing.

My sentiments as well over the passing (suicide?) of Erin Moran.
Mick I messaged you that I was unable to access my messages.. and for you to email me instead.

I will try another. War is another genre you like?

I tried watching that for a 2nd time the other day, just can't get into it, not a big Brad Pit fan at the best of times, although didn't mind him in Fury.
