  1. Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (2005) Sophie Scholl was executed by guillotine by the Third Reich for her Hitler resistance activities. She was found guilty of distributing leaflets at her college campus and for this she was beheaded along with several of the other brave young people of the "White Rose", an underground Nazi resistance movement. This is a dramatization of that event, it is a movie that will not leave you and will have you thinking about it for days after viewing. I highly recommend this film. I found myself drawn into this movie like few other movies will do. This is brilliant stuff. The tension becomes almost unbearable. The depiction of Freisler (The judge), which might seem over the top, but is quite consistent with accounts and actual film clips of the trial, maybe even understated. He was diabolical, tyrannical and very hot tempered. After reading many rave reviews from regular people, I ordered this 2005 movie over the Holidays from Netflix. It was sooooo good, I just had to purchas a copy Watch the Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjE020YHPkE

    My World Record for DVD Movies purchased

    I have over 600 DVD's in my library (ones purchased), and another 500 or so that I recorded onto DVD from our Direct TV broadcast. I don't even want to think about what I paid for those 600 DVDs, but I bet it wasn't nearly what I paid for all the VHS tapes I had before going to DVD. Except for just a few rare movies, I was able to sale all the VHS tapes, but at a fraction of what they cost me. The most expensive movie I had was on VHS - The Fighting Sullivans at $88. Three years later you could get it on DVD at about $24 which I bought to replace the VHS.
  5. Ever done this? At the beginning of the month you print the brand new schedule for three months out, and as you go over it, you get real excited because you spot a rare movie that has been on your want list for a long time. You highlight the movie, you circle the date on your calendar, - then someone at sometime goes in and removes the movie from the line-up. Who does that and why? This has happened twice to me in the last couple of months. The latest incident was Brewster?s Millions (1945) which was scheduled to show on October, 7th my Birthday. I was thinking what a wonderful Birthday Present, to be able to record a movies I have been wanting for so long. Dang, just Dang.
  6. Any one record Fast And Loose showing on 8/20/
  7. Did anyone record to DVD Ready Willing and Able shown on 2/22? I would be willing to purchace it as long as its public domain. I had the recorder all set to record its 3 am showing and left instructions with the wife to tune in TCM before she went to be and she forgot.

    2 stars turning 100 and the TV show they shared

    OK there were a couple of others. Great job in finding others. The ones I had in mind when asking the question were Burgess Meredith and Cesar Romero? And the 1960s TV Batman
  9. Can anyone name two male movie stars who would be turning 100 this year (if they were still alive) and what 1960's TV show did they share.
  10. Would love TCM to now show Three Smart Girls Grow Up. As far as how I feel about Deanna Durbin as a singer or for that matter any of the other song birds of the 1930's, 40's, and 50's these people that win todays Star Search that get so much attention and millions of viewers could not hold a candel to the like of Durbin, Garland, Dinah Shore, Rosemary Clooney, Vera Lynn and on and on. They had real talent.

    MIRANDA

    THANK YOU TCM I finally replaced my old grainy copy of MIRANDA purchased from a collector on E-Bay with a nice crisp sharp copy. Now if you could just show the sequel MAD ABOUT MEN I will have the complete set. Another great Mermaid movie never released to VHS or DVD is Mermaids of Tiburon. Grainy copies of this movie are also the only thing available.

    Restored Movie Prints Sharper Than Originals

    Strange that you mentioned the WIZARD OF OZ. I purchaced the DVD last year and over the Christmas holiday played it for the first time. I was wondering if I may have gotton a bad DVD or something. The color was vibrant but along edges where two colors met there was a fuzzy rainbow effect very noticible on my 55" big screen. It may not be noticable on a regular TV, but the big TV hides nothing.

    Looking for FLIGHT LIEUTENANT 1942

    Thanks, Robertsvideo was the first place I found a copy, but the quality was very poor. It served until I found a better copy on E-bay, but even it is in pretty poor shape. I was hoping maybe someone recorded it directly from a rare TV appearance.
  14. My DVD library at home is dvided up by genre, classic, horror, comedy, drama, etc. Sometimes I have a problem deciding where to place a movie made in the 60s or early 70s

    "Funny Face"

    This was my first time seeing this as well, and I ended erasing my just recorded copy of it, knowing I would probably not see it again. Musicals are not my favorite movie genre unless there is allot of great comedy thrown like in Du barry was a Lady, or Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Other than Audrey Hepburn being at her absolutely most beautiful, I thought the movie was rather dull.
