  1. Doesn't TCM run this anymore? I haven't seen it in ages.

    Olivia De Havilland

    <> That's okay, I haven't seen this film in awhile either. Hopefully, TCM will air it again soon. 8^D

    the philladelphia story

    Didn't Katherine Hepburn own the screen rights for this film? If I remember, she played the role of Tracy Lord on broadway and in order to ensure her being the star of the original, she bought the rights to it. Now here comes my question... If she did indeed own the rights, then WHY did she allow it to be remade into a musical?

    <> The dress you speak about was worn at the end of the film when Catherine took revenge on Morris. Finally standing up for herself and becoming self reliant. The contrast in wardrobe indicates an acceptance of self. She had become comfortable in her skin and womanhood which, to me, is what the dress conveys.

    Cary Grant

    Great thread Kim! I have more Cary Grant films in my film library then any other actor. He has always been my favorite. If I had to pick one scene out of all of his films that has touched me the most it would be the scene from Penny Senerade when he is trying desperately to convince the judge to allow Trina to remain with him and his wife. It never fails to make me cry. It is played with such sincerity. I get goosebumps talking about it. I also love Bringing Up Baby, Holiday, The Awful Truth, People Will Talk, and Monkey Business, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House..I could go on and on. The only film of his, I am ashamed to say, that I haven't seen is Father Goose. My plan is to watch or record it the next time it is on TCM. If I had to pick just one film of his to watch over and over again it would have to be The Bishop's Wife. I never tire of this gem no matter what time of year it is.

    What films should TCM show

    <> I hear you Metropolisforever. As stated in another thread, I have been suggesting this film for quite some time. Since TCM has only been a part of my lineup for a little over a year and a half, I wasn't sure if the film had ever aired on the channel.

    <> I'm so glad! At least it is in the TCM library. Thanks for your response, you've made my heart light! 8^D

    Swing Fans

    <> Swing music is near and dear to my heart! Nothing chases the blues away faster then Sing, Sing, Sing by Benny Goodman and his orchestra. Or Duke Ellington's smooth Take the A Train. My all time favorite swing band is Glen Miller's. My wish would be to go back in time and hear his music first hand. I can see it now...Sitting in a canteen , the lights dimmed, the dance floor crowed, and Mr. Miller's orchestra playing Tuxedo Junction. It would be bliss.

    What films should TCM show

    It would be so nice if TCM would air HANDS ACROSS THE TABLE starring Carole Lombard. Can someone tell me if this film has ever aired on the channel? May I also add my vote for THE EGG AND I.

    Keep TCM an old movie channel and commercial free

    <> No, LoTek, you are not the only one. I haven't received the e-newsletter or e-schedule in a few months. According to my account these mailings are active so I have no idea what's going on with that. This is just another reason why I'm glad I subscribe to Now Playing. 8^D

    We should shake hands! For a year and a half, I have been suggesting Hands Across the Table starring Carole Lombard. No scheduled airing as of yet. 8^(

    I'd be lost without my Now Playing guide. Yes, it's true I can retrieve the program information online but having it come in the mail is almost like Christmas. Ok...maybe not like Christmas but I do enjoy sitting down in my comfy chair, highlighter in one hand and a cup of tea in the other, going through the selections for that month. My wish is that one day I will open the guide and find Hands Across the Table listed. (cough-cough) Are you listening TCM? 8^D

    Thanks for responding FredC. Your post was very informative. I wonder if Mr. Turner ever sits down and watches his "baby" now that it belongs to someone else.

    Can someone please tell me why Ted Turner sold TCM? If I remember correctly this channel was his baby and he always sang its praises. What happened to change all of that?

    Do You Still Go To the Movies?

    No. The reason being I don't feel that most of today's films are worth the money you must pay to see them. kimpunkrock- Last year our local library initiated Film Noir Friday Nights. My husband and I go every week and the place is always packed. It is wonderful to view these films the way they were intended to be seen. On the big screen, surrounded by an audience. The feedback adds to the experience, believe me. Have a great time!

    Thelma, I felt much as you did last year at this time when, after eight years of waiting, my cable company finally added TCM to their channel lineup. My joy turned to fear when I read their schedule for February 07. Films from the 90's? I couldn't believe it. Thanks to TCMprogrammer and all the great people on this board, my fears where put to rest. It's all part of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar. Come the first week in March they will go back to their classic fare. Have no fear, Turner Classic Movies will continue to be THE channel for classic films.
