"Vesper", the first link you posted, is an original. There are several live vids of us that others have uploaded (just do a search if you're interested), but there's not really a FIF page of our own because there's been no really great live footage, unfortunately, so far! Hopefully that can be remedied in future.

Wow.
I could cry that Goldie is in the Hall of Shame. She is so good at what she does. I watched Foul Play within the past month and enjoyed every minute of that film.

I would have kept up-voting her, but someone else came along that I needed to "protect" more than her. But I am bummed. She deserves better.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 25, 2012 6:52:32 PM PDT
I watched a double-bill of hers on cable last week. 'Private Benjamin' followed by 'Protocol'. And that wasn't enough, so later that night I watched 'Overboard' with the fam.

I love her effervescence. And her ability to move from serious to comical at the drop of a hat is second to none.

Goldie finding her way into the Hall of Shame is a...shame. The case to have at least one dud on the list grows strong when Goldie is getting banished. I submit we include ourselves in the Hall of Shame!

I haven't seen Protocal, but Private Benjamin and Overboard are both excellent. I have both of them on DVD, and they each get an airing annually.

Is the premature snuffing out of River Phoenix about drugs? I mean on this list, not real life. Is it an anti-drugs thing, in other words?

I don't understand it. I watched 'Dogfight' again today, and he truly was one of the great young actors of the '80s/90s. Maybe the best.
Is it that he doesn't have enough of a filmography?

I wonder if James Dean would be knocked off the list this fast....

+ RP - you can add Running on Empty and I Love You to Death next to Dogfight, JB...btw a number of roles he was to be cast for winded up going to DiCaprio (who did just fine with 'em for whats its worth), but yes he was quite a magnetic presence onscreen

River isn't a drugs things for me. I could care less that he was stupid enough to overdose. My reasons to down vote Phoenix would be: small filmography, I guess, the other folks on the list at this particular time, and the fact that even I can't down vote the Duke, even though he means nothing to me as an actor.

This particular grouping is a tough one.

I can't believe the River Phoenix rally is coming at the expense at Judy Garland of all people. Judy Garland is worth 10 River Phoenixs.

Jonathan says:
Mischief Girl, I respect that. And for a similar reason, I would rather downvote Judy Garland because she didn't make the most of the roles she was given from the late '40s onward, and not only because of her drug habit. I never saw her as that good an actress.
Good singer, check. But not the overall great performer she's reputed to be.

What ever it was Phoenix did in his private time, he didn't bring it with him to the film set. He was a completely committed and commendable actor. The same can't be said for Garland, who I never cared for much either way, to be brutally honest.
When she was good, she seemed too immature for her parts. When she started getting sloppy, she seemed well past her prime. Garland never found her groove in movies as far as I see it.
'The Pirate' (1948?) is about the time her career started getting ...weird.

So there's my rant against what C. J. Vasta said. Sorry to put it in response to *your* post, MG!
