    TCM FILM FEST 2019

    I read it as "thanks for posting my PICTURE" meaning Kingrat was the photographer, but if I misunderstood, you HAVE to point out which teeny blob is you. I'm going to guess the guy on the right with gray hair & beard - behind the gal in the red dress, between Maltin & the smiling Gavin McLoud lookalike. I love how the guy in the gray & black skull shirt just HAD to emote....and completely block two people's faces. If THAT'S you, Kingrat...you are a rat!

    A 20th Century Fox Retrospective Scrapbook: 1943

    Heehee, since Libitsch is now verboten. (good old Otto) Don't know why they'd show the horse laying down (sick, dead?) in the My Friend Flicka poster-would scare me from seeing the movie. Great job CI. I love seeing the variety of one studio's output for one year-IMPRESSIVE.

    Question About Fan Introductions

    It's so easy...anyone can do it! TCM once had a contest calling for the "ultimate fan". Why not send TCM a video of yourself & your classic film insights?
  4. I rarely post a link in a thread, but since that's the majority of content anyway, here goes. I watched this video clip several times because it so succinctly illustrates the idiocy of our leader-in a funny, yet sad way. It's sad because it's Trump's own speech & not edited: Funny, I never noticed until watching that, Trump wears huge oversize ties. Haha, apparently a regular size tie is dwarfed by his giant gut.

    new taste treat discovered

    Man, some people will eat ANYTHING. Oreos are fattening enough, I can't imagine compounding it with a brownie. Packaged. With preservatives. I only eat Oreos when celebrating some major accomplishment-and then ration my intake. Guess that's why some of us are fit & trim and others just melt into blobs.
  6. Dontcha know all the historical hatred that has been fueled in the name of religion? I WILL tell you, as someone who works in the public realm, I have seen a huge difference in people's behaviour since 2016. After 9-11, people actually seemed kinder to each other in public, helping each other in stores or on elevators. Not EVERYONE of course, I just witnessed a trend of small kindness' daily. A distinct downturn seemed to begin around 3 to 4 years ago, when I noticed people (most often well-to-do white people) become unduly angry & demanding of others. I now see tantrums/outbursts from people on a regular basis, often focused towards "service" employees. It seems the common denominator is a prevalence of upper middle class white people feeling "I deserve more than you". They are violently lashing out in frustration, with little respect for others. For example: a person standing up in a restaurant, yelling at a waitress about the food or threatening a cashier to honor an expired coupon or they'll give them a bad internet review! And have you noticed who WORKS in tough menial labor jobs? Almost every "service" job around including housekeeping, cashier, personal care, laborer....are all held by Immigrants. The Immigrants GLADLY come to work every day picking fruit, cleaning bathrooms or unpacking freight*. It's even tough getting teens to work over summer UNLESS THEY CAN SIT ON THEIR PHONE during their shift. We have become a nation of spoiled brats. *all jobs I have done

    I Love This Geico Ad

    Only us old people know this from experience insuring our cars for years. Has anyone noticed what companies have big money for constant advertising? Insurance and big Pharma. What does that tell you?
  8. I hope you're not referring to me- I looked through my archive of Now Playing and found all my earliest ones had been discarded. I thought it was a complete set, but unfortunately recall cutting photos out of pre 2000 copies (sorry)

    I Just Watched...

    Wow that's an impressive & strong cast! I like how it sounds like the accused received inhumane punishment over such a small offense; stealing $5 from a Post Office. His previous offense -murdering another human being- is mentioned like a footnote! Could his attempted escape contributed to his declining accommodation in prison? Sounds like the guy doesn't know how to behave in public OR in prison. That said, the prison system is heavily regulated to provide clean, decent accommodations. Even those in solitary must receive an hour rec time & shower time every day and some inmates refuse the opportunity.

    Fun movie-related gifs

    I keep both the Judy laughing & 3 Stooges dancing bookmarked to use as comments on this message board. Personal opinion-I don't care much for the gifs that have captions at the bottom-seems best when the action speaks for itself.

    Archaic Expressions in Films

    Haha I still use the term "chump change"....every week when I receive my paycheck. And the term "shiv" is used regularly in prison.

    Fosse/Verdon series

    Great observation! I've heard some buzz and people saying, "I knew who Fosse was, but never heard of Gwen Verdon" Oy. Let's hope this "Classic Hollywood/Broadway Untold Story" theme becomes a trend and possibly ignites interest in those who "never heard of" these great artists.

    I Just Watched...

    Wow, unusual comments for you Lawrence-seems like you keep interest through almost anything. I'll seek this one out to see if I agree with "many people" or yourself.
