    Movie Magazine Memories

    Remember the old movie magazines from the 40s, 50s, and 60s? You know, the ones your mom, aunt, or grandma used to buy and collect and you'd find yourself enthralled with them? As young as I was I caught up in the drama of the love triangle of Debbie Reynolds, Eddie Fisher and Liz Taylor. The anguished heart break of Doris Day. The illnesses of Liz Taylor. The lavished home life of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh all in splendid splashy colorful pages. I don't know if the 70s,80s,and 90s were as fascinating to you younger folk who had People as your magazine of choice but Silver Screen and Photoplay opened up to our fantasies of Hollywood!

    George Sanders

    For some reason George C, Scott reminded me very much of George Sanders,

    Movies I watch again and again.

    I'll always stop to watch until the end of; Singing In The Rain, The Sound of Music, Citizen Kane, and Wizard of Oz.
  4. Back in the 60's and 70's there were two out standing documentaries on the history of Hollywood on commercial tv. One was Hollywood and the Stars with theme music by Elmer Bernstein and another whose name I forget but it too had theme music by Carl Davis called Up In Lights. Can TCM acquire these and show them? I think they were narrated by Joseph Cottton, Henry Fonda and Orson Welles.

    Mary Pickford Biopic

    I am surprised that no one has attempted to make a biographic film of Mary Pickford besides the number of documentary films that have been made. What young actress today would bring to life that pioneering actress of yesterday?

    Mary Pickford Biopic

    Bernadette Peters and Robert Preston appeared in the failed musical about Mack Sennet and Mable Norman back in the 70's called Mack and Mable.

    Mary Pickford Biopic

    Thanks for your kind and very informative reply Merry. I guess the right actress to portray her hasn't come on the scene yet. Yes, I'm hoping such a production arrives eventually.
  8. I was surprised how wonderful A Warm December starring Sidney Portier was. What an over looked gem . There is much about it that would make a fine musical. A team of enterprising young writers and composers should look into it.
  9. Kim Jung Un is a great fan. It is him no doubt.

    Rex Reed would be a great TCM Host

    I'd love to have Rex Reed on board at TCM. Perhaps he could team up with Alec Baldwin on The Essentials.

    Question of the Day: Ruby Keeler

    When they filmed "The Jolson Story" Ms. Keeler forbade them to use her real name. What a pity. It might have helped her in later years, but she "retired" to be a mother and golf pro until she came back with No No Nanette on Broadway.

    Barbara Stanwyck's son

    Barbara and Joan Crawford tried to fix up Christina with him but of course we know that idea didn't work.

    Note on An American in Paris

    The Broadway stage version was pale next to the original movie.

    Movies You Were Too Young to See But Saw

    I don't know how they didn't stop my parents from allowing my sister and I, then under 12. to see An Anatomy of Murder, then billed for "Adults Only" no one under 17 admitted but we did. I was able to follow the story perfectly with my eleven year old mind and yes I found it kind of raunchy.
  16. Unfortunately I felt the subject deserved better treatment. This documentary was very poorly done .

    Movies You Want to End Differently

    I would have wanted the Julie Andrew's film "Star" to have ended with her portraying Gertrude Lawrence doing a scene from The King and I and her subsequent illness and death, A little morbid but it would have been very touching at the end.

    The Roaring Twenties

    I enjoyed the Warner Brothers TV version which starred Dorothy Provine. They should revive it with new stars like Lady Gaga doing the Provine role We are entering the 20's again soon you know, so why not?
  21. Having seen the documentary I thought they could have done a better job. Such a fascinating woman deserved better. I thought it was boring.

    Allyn Ann McLerie (1926 – 2018)
