Ahhhh! got’cha. I bet you thought I was going to talk about “Fifty Shades of Grey”? Not yet. Now…there’s a stream of consciousness to my thinking about movies. One movie reminds me of another and another and this star worked with that one in this movie which reminds me of that movie which was directed by this director who worked with that actor who…
You get the idea.
Am I alone in daisy-chaining movie-related things? Hopefully it wasn’t too too crazy my linking Alfred Hitchcock ( finally I give him top billing ) with John Ford as I did with my post above. I daisy-chained my way to thinking about directors. Yes, we all know those great on-screen classic teams like Garbo and Gilbert, Tracy and Hepburn, Fred and Ginger, Powell and Loy, Flynn and deHavilland, Bogie and Bacall…and the list goes on.
But my thoughts ran back to directors and the stars they collaborated with. Working in a studio was a big help in fostering those relationships. Who really had a partnership of creativity and success? How many could I come up with. Any 0NE of the movies these collaborations produced would be a dream to have under one’s belt. But these folks worked together several times to create classic gems. Can you name who I have here? If you think of any collaborative efforts I missed, let me know.
