Hi Brian, This is certainly an interesting clip. Which movie is this from?
Even though you did a really great job of finding a small clip for us, our attachment space has gone crazy from this one clip, so I'll have to take down the attachment after a week or two to free the space. I have made a small screen cap of the clip, and this can stay online of course.
Click the image above. If you want to post your own stills, in .JPG format, thats also great.
Sorry about that, Dan. I just saw the 1mb file upload limit and thought it would be ok at 700k.
The movie is "Dark Victory" Which was a TV movie re-make of an older Betty Davis movie. I'm fairly certain that she is smoking B&H 100's in this as that was a very popular all white 100 back in the 70's
Ha! Thanks for clearing up this mystery. We have 200MB free space and I dont want to start a charity to keep up the attachments, so I'll just filter the large offerings every so often. This will create dead links of course. If there is any way to host these online, in a similar way to tinyupload, ftp, mediafire, rapidshare, filehost, yes even dropbox - and link those - then everyone is happy. In the meantime, never let a good idea stand in the way of progress!!!
You would not beleive how many black and white movies I have seen over the past few years, and I'd say 85% of them had at least some smoking, perhaps a lightup, but something. Bette Davis is another hero of mine, and she is famous for smoking more than one together, on one famous occasion - 3 together. She lived forever and never quit. But the funny thing to this story is I only saw the original movie Dark Victory a few days ago. The original I'd say is an 8/10 movie, but I dont think its a smoke movie, perhaps 3/10 on that score. Its the tale of a woman with a brain tumour who falls for her doctor, only the doctor wont tell her she's dying. I tear jerker and a great movie. I dont tend to enjoy TV remakes as much, although like 12 Angry Men there are a few exceptions. Yes I do love old movies for the smoking, and in those days it was of course perfectly natural. I cant stand movies made after 2005/10 frankly, with thousands of classic Oscar winning performances waiting to be watched and relived. ..but I could talk old movies forever. I may check out this sequel for research purposes.
The best stuff never makes it onto DVD unless some pirate decides to advertise a general TV rip on a disc, and these are questionable value. Luckily, its all on Youtube. I downloaded it with FlashVideoDownloader for Firefox.
Can you give us a link to the downloader software? I've used "Freemake Video Downloader" in the past but their website is flagged by my anti-virus software and was probably the source of a persistent Trojan attack on my CPU in November.
