Cuffs
Burchfield's Part 2
Sun Dec 11, 2016 11:12am

I purchased Filmfax magazine for Tom Birchfield's second installment on Lee's career. Very enjoyable, well written and loaded with information. I do agree with Mr. Burchfield that Lee could have immensely benefitted from some classical training as did Alan Rickman. Lee had the intelligence & concentration to spread his creative wings in more demanding roles. Too bad, but at least as Tom put it, Lee didn't die a poor man and lives on as a western legend. Thanks, DCG for the heads up.

        Merry Christmas and nice job. I wrote a long positive reply and my personal take on Lee's career but it won't post on this phone so screw it. Maybe I'll try it again later.

      I came to the conclusion that the level of stardom that Lee achieved was pretty much where he wanted it to be. Stanley Kramer once suggested he have his nose "fixed" so that he could get leading... more

        I've often wondered why Lee stayed in Italian westerns for so long. I read were he said he was having a good time. I doubt whether that would have been the situation in Hollywood. A place where... more

          Cuffs, have you ever seen the movie "The Oscar"? If not, you should. It depicts the underbelly of Hollywood in a very dark way as it follows the thoughts and actions of the film's protagonist. Some... more
