    It's coming down to the wire for Younger (112 votes) vs Older (107 votes) James Stewart!

    ...my question though is, where's the break? My mind makes the break at WWII- older James Stewart begins with It's a Wonderful Life? Or maybe 1954 Rear Window? 
    The images I used are from Mr Smith Goes to Washington and Rear Window. Stewart is that rare person who hardly had any "down time" in the midst of an amazing career!
    True! His career was one of few mis-steps & major accomplishments! Later half more gritty, especially his Westerns!

    Summary: Bruce appears to use the HA dating structure of 'pre' and 'post'. He needs to be specific...alternatively you can just flip a coin.

    Yes, I am #$*^%*! bored.

    Great data, Dave!

    Actually, I briefly considered going with "pre-war" and "post-war" instead of "older" and "younger", but didn't want to be accused of being a copycat!

    Nice list, David! Lotta typing there...   ;)

    I've read several places that when Stewart returned from WWII-he returned changed-he was looking for more challenging/serious/dramatic roles-very much reflected in the more hardened nature of some of his characters. He no longer played in musicals or comedy's-a few in the 60s though. 

    Although this could have just been how film themes were changing. Noir coming into popularity post WWII...

    Down to the wire on this Face/Off with James Stewart against himself ("younger" vs "older") and as expected it is super close. Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/faceoff_archives.php to cast your vote (which could be the deciding one)!

    Incidentally, I am NOT exaggerating that your vote could be the deciding one. The last Face/Off, with an equally fine actor, Spencer Tracy, ended with an exact tie!

    I went to more modern actors this past week, and in almost all cases the younger ones trounced the older ones.

    I can't do "actresses", because the younger one would ALWAYS destroy the older one, so do any of you here have suggestions of actors I have not done yet that had long enough distinguished careers to make them worth doing?  If so, post them, because otherwise I will move on to another topic on Monday!

    Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Connelly are two modern female actors that I'd like to see a face off young and old. Definitely old for me.

    True enough, Matt. Come up with 8 more like these, and I can do a week of them!

    The current one (closing in a few hours) is right now an exact tie!

    Do you prefer the super-young Rocky Horror Picture Show Susan Sarandon, or the mature Thelma and Louise one?

    Make your choice known!

    I can't think of any other movie other than Rocky Horror that she was in that appeals to more
    David
  • BruceBruce Member, Captain Movie Poster Posts: 800 ✭✭✭ Daybiller

    I had two ideas that you guys could help on, if you are willing and able:

    1) Real life businesses featured in movie titles:

    like Breakfast at Tiffany's or Lloyd's of London

    2) historical places featured in movie titles

    such as Hunchback of Notre Dame

    Got any help? Thanks!

    I am going to do some weeks of the following:

    "Country names in movie titles"
    "City names in movie titles"
    "State names in movie titles"

    Any help appreciated. Don't all post at once!

    Lawrence messaged me privately on the "businesses" and "historical place names" and we are using many of those suggestions this week and next week, and I thank him very much.

    I can well understand that the rest of you either don't care or are too busy. But there was no harm in trying!

    You could do movies with the letters "EMP" in them...  

    You could do an entire bracket on ugliest Australian Posters...  

    Did you ever do one on say 3SH vs. 1SH...
