Juanita Moore, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the 1959 Douglas Sirk film Imitation of Life, died Wednesday at her home in Los Angeles, Varietyreports. She was 99.
Her first day at the mission house, Father John (Ricardo Montalban) and Sister Cluny (Agnes Moorehead) leading the usual songs, Mother Prioress (Greer Garson) attending, Sister Ann (Debbie Reynolds) wows all with a song about her guitar, in MGM's The Singing Nun, 1966.
Scooting into (not very) seedy Gent, Belgium, Debbie Reynolds as the highly fictionalized version of the real Sister Jeanine Deckers, meets Sister Cluny (Agnes Moorehead), the Mother Prioress (Greer Garson) and old friend Sister Mary (Juanita Moore), early in MGM's The Singing Nun, 1966.
Memorable opening, Edward Dmytryk directing, titles by Saul Bass, music by Elmer Bernstein, from Walk On The Wild Side, 1962, from the Nelson Algren novel, starring Laurence Harvey, Capucine, Jane Fonda and Barabara Stanwyck.

If you had a chance to meet yourself as an 8-year-old child, would that kid be happy with who you turned out to be? In Russ Duritz's case, the answer is a resounding "no!" In Walt Disney Pictures' live-action comedy, "Disney's The Kid," Bruce Willis stars as Russ Duritz, a successful image consultant whose life is suddenly turned upsdie down when he magically meets Rusty, Russ himself as an 8-year-old kid. Rusty is a sweet, but slightly geeky, awkard little kid who painfully reminds Russ of everything he hated about himself when he was a child - a pudgy, little cry-baby who was the daily victim of the school bullies - an image Russ has worked hard to overcome and consciously forget. Ironically, the kid is also unhappy with who his 40-year-old self has turned out to be. He is not at all impressed by his attractive physique, wealth or seemingly important accomplishments. He can't undertand the concept of Russ' job as an image consultant, or why he has forgotten about their dreams of becoming a pilot. All he knows is that he grows up to be a 40-year-old loser - an adult without a wife or even a dog!
A man's life is upended when he meets a 9-year-old version of himself.
