    Hotties From Early TV

    I believe Roberts decided at the last moment to hang around for one more season so Williams was no longer needed. I don't think it had anything to do with Williams personally.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    not everyone at the end of a rope hangs...
  4. And does so without any of the hosts holding a shotgun across their laps.

    " The Green Pastures ", Sunday

    And then there's the "Going to Heaven on a Mule" finale of Wonder Bar.... I think the only time I saw it show up on TCM was when Richard Barrios selected it for the "Gay Images in Film" spotlight back in 2007.
  6. Agree TCM may shape-shift..and still remain TCM

    Movie Messiahs...and others....

    they dismiss Jeffrey hunter for some stupid reason, his blue eyes, but I'm sorry, his portrayal of jesus imo is the best. I like sydow too but he's a tad too stoic. jeffrey hunter's performance is strong and heartfelt.

    Hey, Canadians...

    Karla Homolka is/was an extremely notorious case in Canada. Apparently no Canadians wanted to be involved with the movie in any way.

    Which Peter Ustinov Films Do You Like?

    I like it too, much underappreciated. I love it when kaptah says to merite... "offer him more than she can."... just before she whacks him with her broom.
  10. Maybe there shouldn't be any need for hysteria, but it's certainly there. (Not on my part, for what it's worth.)
  11. I disagree. Look at the freakout over the AT&T/Time Warner merger, or when the Library of Congress/National Film Registry night ran My Fair Lady. Boy was there a lot of agitation here over that one.
  12. They own/have access to all those films in the Turner library. They would make no more money on these films if the films were put back into a vault. TCM will likely turn into a pay-to-stream service, and these films will remain available. And along with the films will be some of the wraparounds that TCM produced. Regarding HOT SPELL, this film will fall into the public domain and TCM will still not be interested in it. That's because it does not compare to NORTH BY NORTHWEST.

    LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT, the 1928 film novelization.

    All apologies for the odd format, and any spelling mistakes. I’m posting all these using my phone.

    Hey, Canadians...

    I enjoyed aspects of that, although it felt like a Lifetime Channel TV movie. What was the irritation about?

    LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT, the 1928 film novelization.

    also to add - The female characters in the novelization are quite strong- the Heroine in distress is portrayed in a particularly sympathetic light; the maid- who is an IRRITATING comic relief figure on MARK OF THE VAMPIRE- is a no-nonsense cockney who is given a name and a brief- but charming romantic subplot with the Butler. Adding delightfully to the mystery is the cockney accented (long before the revelation that all is not as it seems, Which expounds on the mystery and had me laughing out loud throughout) “Bat Girl”- As she is referred to in this version, and not “Luna”, Although she is described exactly like Carol Borland would later appear in MARK OF THE VAMPIRE and even has the remarkable indoor flying scene where the reader is told that she has no arms but giant bats wings SPOILER IN RE THE NOVELS ENDING This does not occur in the screenplay or finished film, But throughout the novel the action cuts back to two inspectors at Scotland yard discussing the Balfour case. They mention their best man is on it along with “Mooney and Looney”, his right hand men, From whom they are awaiting the signal to act. It turns out that “Mooney and Looney” are policewomen who are undercover as the maid (Mooney) and the Bat Girl ( “Looney” being a play on “Luna.”)

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Sam Stein‏Verified accoun @samstein Sam Stein Retweeted Donald J. Trump Trump was called to testify and refused, sending written answers instead. Now he says that Mueller never asked anyone to testify. Up is down.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account@realDonaldTrump Isn’t it amazing that the people who were closest to me, by far, and knew the Campaign better than anyone, were never even called to testify before Mueller. The reason is that the 18 Angry Democrats knew they would all say ‘NO COLLUSION’ and only very good things! 3:31 PM - 22 Apr 2019

    Hey, Canadians...

    I think I've mentioned Karla once before, to the great irritation of all the Canadian posters here.
  19. I want this to be the case I want TCM to be around a long, long time. I would dare say that CEO(s) and other corporate types are not artistically inclined.. And..if by chance they are artistically inclined...if money isn't on the bottom line.. Art goes out the window

    a new hate target for the left: Kate Smith

    Not new for me; I never felt she was very good.

    Sally Field

    That’s right. I remember when he came back to host the Guest Programmer series a few times before his death. I don’t think he did his normal time slot though. Only his normal time slot when he did the Guest Programmer series. He was a really wonderful man. Wasn’t he? I actually cried when he passed away and when I herd that he’d passed away and I still really miss him so much. We all do. Don’t we and he is still with us everyday and he will always be with us everyday. Forever. I think about him everyday when and as I watch TCM. We all think about him everyday when and as we watch TCM. Don’t we and we all really loved and really love him a whole lot didn’t we and don’t we?
