That's funny, I think she and the guy who plays her son are the funniest parts of the movie. I think they're both hilarious. To each his own, as they say :-)

    The New Julie Andrews Thread

Films are a current medium. > They are as current as when they are being watched. > Don't you have an opinion of your own? No, sorry, she seems to be incapable of forming her own opinions about anything that is not validated somehow by one of her all mighty critics. It's really sad, actually, that she doesn't feel free to use her own mind.

  4. I don't think spinoffs are such a great idea. MTV and VH1 have done it, but I don't see TCM doing it. I think they show an excellent variety of movies as it is.

Well, they really kind of do that as it is, to a certain extent. There's lots of times they show 2 or movies in a row featuring a certain actor. Last month they devoted almost a whole Saturday to John Wayne films.

    Favorite Modern Movies

    I'd have to say Brokeback Mountain, Match Point and Pulp Fiction off the top of my head are a few of the best modern movies.

    My dream format for TCM

    Sorry, I'm not crazy about that idea at all. Every once in a while devoting a day to a single actor is one thing, but every day is way too much. Like others have said, if you don't care for a particular actor, you're just out of luck for that day. Better IMO to leave things as it is, having a variety of movies on all day.

    Your fave way to watch

  11. > Good News...I'm just so in love with June Allyson and > the Varsity Drag number is one of the best. OMG, I love that movie too! It's so charming in every way. It makes me smile just to think about it :-)

    Marilyn Monroe

    > Just because she played a dumb blonde doesn't > mean she was one. To clarify, I really wasn't trying to say she was dumb, I was just saying that was the reputation she had. I don't know why I never knew she was in All About Eve, that makes me even more interested in seeing it :-) More motivation to get back on my feet :-)

    Marilyn Monroe

    This may be a silly question. But that won't stop me :-) I'm doing a Word Search book right now and one of the puzzles is Marilyn Monroe. And one of the clues is All About Eve. I've never seen it, but I've never heard of her being in it. Could this be true? Another clue is "intelligence" which also had me scratching my head. She may not have as dumb as she came off but I didn't think she was ever known for her intelligence. Comments, anyone?

    I have a confession to make

    One of my guilty pleasures(that's kind of the theme of this thread?) is definitely There's Something About Mary. Not one redeeming quality except that it's hilarious! :-)
