    It's funny you mention Chevy looking like he lost his mind in Christmas Vacation when that film also stars Randy Quaid who's career has just nose dived.

    Speaking of randy haven't seen Dennis in a while.

    Obviously you haven't been watching the Umbrella Academy on Netflix ;) also recently started in an Irish zombie movie, whose name escapes me.

    *Shrug* you said "without a trace", as opposed to one of Netflix's most successful / highly rated TV shows :D Though I may be misreading your one liner :P

    I think on balance directors seem to disappear more definitively than actors. Maybe the latter can swallow their pride easier than directors, happily slum it for a while on lowgrade projects. Unlike directors such as Richard Kelly who really have disappeared without a trace since "The Box". It's not even like they go back to TV or whatnot.

    Netflix is only like €15 a month or something. I'd recommend it

    It started well, first episode or two looked like a gritty mafia crime show, then completely lost the plot and tanked.

    Dennis is a serious amateur golfer who played off scratch at one time. He plays a lot of pro-ams, most recently this past weekend in the AT&T at Pebble Beach. He is regularly quoted as being the best celebrity golfer, apparently he plays every day.

    I'm currently watching Call Her Savage (1932), one of the last films Clara Bow made in her short career. She had gotten married the previous year, and the next year she retired from movies at the ripe old age of 28. Bow had struggled with the introduction of sound in movies, though not as badly as e.g. Louise Brooks, and gotten tired of the Hollywood scene among other things.

    From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’.

    don't usually find women from that era attractive, but she's nice

    If we're really going back in time, surely the first dramatic disappearance from the big leagues was Fatty Arbuckle. A silent star on par with Buster Keaton (IIRC they were close friends in real life), and basically had his name dragged through mud with a media campaign insinuating he had a hand in the death of a guest at a party he attended. He was eventually proven completely innocent - with Keaton one of the few to publicly defend him - but by then he had become box office poison and a pariah. I think he had a resurgence in the 30s, but died a few years later before restoring his fame / name. Of the silent era stars Arbuckle remains kinda forgotten...

    Not really a Hollywood career but Ornella Muti from the 1980 cult classic Flash Gordon

    Kevin Costner, one of the biggest stars in the 1990s then small parts in the 2020s.

    Alan Brody, Oscar winner to movies with Lindsay Lohan with her boobs out.

    Renne Zellwegger, doesn't seem to have done much since the well publicised plastic surgery excess from a few years ago.
    Rene Zellweger?!

    The reigning Best Actress...like, literally the reigning Best Actress!

    Seriously?!

    It's because he couldn't recognize her anymore.

    The story I heard about Phoebe Cates was that she started a family with husband Kevin Kline, and they agreed to alternate acting and family duties, but every time she could have worked, she decided that family life was better.

    That's who I was thinking of when I read the thread title and also read something similar to what you said.

    When I was small I thought she was gorgeous.

    He is the lead actor in the TV series Yellowstone the last few years. (Costner)

    I recently saw Adrian Brody in a film where he is a robber trapped in a building being chased by a dog. Pretty crap.

    Richard Kelly is an odd one, I would say he had a contract of some sort after Donnie darko, I am guessing Southland tales did serious damage to his reputation....it is a mess in fairness

    Lots of box office bombs

    All of these films compared badly at the box office against others costing far less.

    Waterworld
    The Postman
    Wyatt Earp

    And a whole string of films that don't shine

    Kurt Russell's Tombstone came out a few months before Wyatt Earp, had a much smaller budget and a shorter runtime,Waterworld isn't a bad film but had bad publicity, The Postman on the other hand is by the numbers post-apocalyptic garbage with ten times the budget of this type of film

    She compared people being hated for their political view in the Us is like the persecutions of the Jews in Nazi Germany.
    Note: I am paraphrasing here

    She's being targetted for her conservativism.

    Her co workers have posted similar stuff and no consequences

    Costner considered making a movie about Michael Collins and visited West Cork. He passed on the project and made Wyatt Earp instead.
