Four For Friday - Old Hollywood

#1 - This Academy Award winning director who really was known more for theatre slept with most of the men and women in the movie for which he won. The movie itself won more than a handful of Oscars.

#2 - This foreign born a-hole of a director who is still alive has talked smack about this permanent A list actress for decades because she wouldn't sleep with him. There was also the time she kicked him in the balls. Twice.

#3 - This actor had hundreds of credits to his name and was A list at one point in his career. Before finally killing himself, he attempted suicide over a dozen times.

#4- This actress is really Old Hollywood and at one point was married to one of those last names that screams Old Hollywood. He wanted her life insurance money and killed her while they were out of the country. He was never charged.

MontanaMarriott said...

1. Mike Nichols

Kibble said...

#1 Kazan?

Kibble said...

Oooh, also a good guess.

cc said...

#1 Jerome Robbins -- West Side Story?

Angela6 said...

#4 John Pickford-Olive Thomas. #1 Vincent Minnelli?

Simon said...

3 sounds like George reeve. A list during superman

Simon said...

Or maybe Robert young for 3.

MontanaMarriott said...

I thought "The movie itself won more than a handful of Oscars." pertained to the answers in 2, 3, & 4. Arrrrrrgh Enty u r tooooo many things.

MontanaMarriott said...

Great guess on #4, I think you got it!

Snookiemonster said...

bean álainn rua said...

guidedog said...

+1

Kibble said...

+1 on #4

Kibble said...

The MADNESSs of CDAN ... There might as well be a site sign stating "Beware imprecision, overstatement and grammatical errors, all ye who enter here."

:P

Zilla1 said...

#1 Laurence Olivier (Oscar for Hamlet, which won 4 Oscars, but he also directed some movies)?

LauraOK said...

#3: David Carradine. He was A list at one point in his career, and had hundreds of credits. This doesn't say he committed suicide, it says "killed himself" so that doesn't rule out an accidental hanging...it only says he'd attempted suicide multiple times previously. Had a really dark side. Can't be Robin Williams, because he's forever A+.

Truther said...

Considering Jack Pickford gave all the money that he inherited after his wife's (Olive Thomas) death to Olive's mother, I don't think he murdered her for the money at all.

d brown said...

Don't know if 135 credits on IMDB counts as "hundreds" but I'll suggest George Sanders for 3.

Dear World, I am leaving you because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool - good luck.
Suicide note.
~~ George Sanders, British actor, d. April 25, 1972

Kno Won Uno said...

I agree.

Kno Won Uno said...

I adored him. A smoother, more elegant man has never been born.

jack said...

Katherine Hepburn as the balls kicker.

Big Al said...

2 is Polanksi,

Malibuborebee said...

+10,000

I pledge my undying devotion to Addison DeWitt.

And really, after two Gabors, who wouldn't be exhausted?

Majik8bong said...

3. Gig Young

Kno Won Uno said...

Georges Duroy for me. (The Private Affairs of Bel Ami)

Majik8bong said...

4. Katherine Walsh

Majik8bong said...

Might as well finsih my guesses....and round them all together cuz today, apparently, I can't just do it once and must post over and over needlessly....(happy friday....hic)
1. Orson Welles
2. Roman Polanski\
3. Gig Young
4. Katherine Walsh

That is all.

Squeege said...

Best goodbye ever :)

Malibuborebee said...

#4 is killing me. I've checked a dozen old Hollywood names and I can't find him.

Reveal this.

HH314 said...

Excellent guess. I thought of Addison Dewitt but couldn't remember the actors name

Kelly said...

#4 Natalie wood/Robert

Kibble said...

May I also add Jack Favell?

Bleu said...

Yeah George Sanders (who played Addison Dewitt) is who immediately came to mind for #3. These are Old Hollywood blinds

French girl said...

This blind is BS .Everyone in the crew hated her during the filming .Not just Polanski.She was awful with everyone

rdmtimp said...

3. Alan Ladd

rdmtimp said...

Nevermind - his was ruled an accidental overdose.

Malibuborebee said...

Ah. Can't fault you on taste, @Kno, and de Maupassant is hard to beat on source material.

HH314 said...

She was hateful and he wanted to sleep with her- these are not mutually exclusive you know. I read somewhere she doused him with her urine because he would not give bathroom breaks

Small Penis Porn said...

1. Orson Wells 2. Milos Forman and Louise Fletcher 3.George Reeves 4.Jack Pickford and Olive Thomas

H2O said...

I read that Holden was an accident. He was drunk, fell and hit his head.

Jess Sayin' said...

"And if you covered him with garbage
George Sanders would still have style"

—The Kinks, "Hollywood Boulevard"

LaBomba said...

the best guess of all

reliantrobin said...

And I would definitely rather deal with a diva than a disgusting child rapist/pedophile. That he's gotten away with it so far increases my loathing for him.

Lele said...
