I noticed that as I was scouring the Internet Movie Database for movies to add to my Blockbuster.com queue I eschewed films starring Kirk Douglas, Glenn Ford, Burt Lancaster, and Robert Mitchum. Perhaps it’s because I tend to dislike the melodramatic, unrealistic movies of the late 1940s and 1950s, which was when Douglas, Ford, Lancaster, and Mitchum became stars. But even their later films don’t appeal to me. I’ll have to give it some more thought. Stay tuned for a P.S.
