  1. Funny, I always associated Kevin McCarthy with Arthur Kennedy. I always thought that they could have been brothers they reminded me so much of each other.

    Question about Age Restrictions

    That does help me. I'm aware schedules are bound to change and that there might be a few other certain events she might not be able to attend, I was just concerned that we might get there and suddenly find our festival experience very limited due to her being a minor. But again, this has helped. Thank you very much for getting back to me! -Sharon
  3. Hi, I'm hoping to attend the 2014 TCM Film Festival, it would be first time. All along I've been planning on attending with my 17-year-old niece. I understand that you must be at least 18 years of age in order to buy your pass, that's not what I'm confused about. After reviewing some of the 'terms & conditions' I see that there are certain things and events where she might not be allowed admittance, but it doesn't tell me what all of those things and events are. It specifies on a couple things, but then only tells me that there may be other events and such that might refuse her admittance because of her age. My question is, I need to know everything that she'll be refused admittance to. Because if she's refused admittance, then A) I'll feel badly that she'll be left out, she won't be getting her money's worth, and C) I'll have to be left out on the events myself because, as the 24-year-old guardian, I must stay with her at all times. I'm not complaining, I simply need some clarification on this. So if anyone knows the answers to my questions, please let me know. Thank you! -Sharon

    Actors/Actresses Who IRRITATE You!

    -Erroll Flynn!!!!!! - What dope ever said he could act?? It's not just that though...geez, it's everthing about him. I just can't stand him. -Rosiland Russell - Why? She just annoys the crap out of me. I don't think she's funny in the least. -George Raft - Holy crap...how did he get into acting?? I think the only movie I like him in is *Some Like it Hot*. He's so dull...he just stands there with the same look on his face in everything. It's like he doesn't put a single ounce of effort into his acting or lines.

    ?Murder, He Says?, Oct. 14

    I LOVE this movie, and luckily I actually own it on VHS. This was probably one of my favorite movies growing up, we used to watch our 'taped off TV' version of it over and over again. It never got old. Eventually, our ancient and weary copy of the film disappeared...quite a devastation. About a year or so ago I found an actual VHS copy the movie on Amazon, there were only a few copies, and they were very expensive...but I bought anyway. :-) It's just as good as it was when I was kid! ...This contains one of the most hilarious scenes in all of the movies I have ever seen, in my opinion anyway...I won't give it away though, for the sake of those who haven't seen it yet. Watch it if you can!!
  7. Umm, yeeaahh...I officially want to see this movie *immediately*. Thank you for posting these pics!!

    Vic Morrow Discussion

    I'm a very big fan of Vic Morrow and I too wish TCM had played a couple of his films on his b-day. It's sad how underrated he is as an actor. It's really too bad. It's also too bad he never won an Emmy for his performance in *Combat!*. Incredible. He was phenomenal in that show. It's my favorite TV show actually. Anyway, happy belated birthday to Vic; I'll always be a big fan.
  12. I'd like to see Robert Duvall win Oscar in the near future. I know he's already won for *Tender Mercies* (1983-?), but he also should have won for *The Apostle* (1997-?). His performance in *The Apostle* is fabulous! I think he was so cheated out of an Oscar for that movie and should win for something else in the future to make up for it. He deserves it.

    First movie you can remember seeing in a theater

    Okay, I'm only 19, so I'm young. Lol. My earliest movie-in-the-theaters memory is *Toy Story* (1995). Today, it's still my favorite Pixar animated film.
  14. You're absolutely right, CelluloidKid, Julia Ormond definitely could not act, so it's a good thing I don't watch the movie just for her.... I never thought about *Laura*...that could probably be a 'possible' remake, but yeah...a 'safe' one to remake that is.
  15. I pretty much agree with CelluloidKid that, remakes today are no good, or at least MOST are no good. Honestly, the only remakes that I like that pop into my head at this moment are *You've Got Mail* (remake of The Shop Around the Corner and In the Good Ol' Summertime) and *Sabrina*. Personally, I like the remake of *Sabrina* (1995; Harry Ford & Julie Ormond) better then the original...weird...because that doesn't ever happen. Anyhow! Besides the few that I do like, I'm still not the biggest fan of remakes, especially if the original was a Best Picture winner. The only movies that cames to mind right now that I would actually like seeing remade, is *Love in the Afternoon* (1957; Gary Cooper & Audrey Hepburn) and *Ship of Fools*. Only, it would have to be remade during the same time period as the original (Ship of Fools would have to be anyway), and not all trashed up.

    Murder He Says

    Oh my goodness, I remember watching this ALL the time when I was a kid. We had this old "taped off TV" copy of it...I suppose we eventually watched it until it ate itself up or something, because we don't have it anymore. I swear...it's absolutely hysterical! I would totally recommend this to anybody, it's that funny. No, it's not on DVD. But you can buy it on VHS, not that anyone really wants to have it on VHS, but honestly, it's better then not having it at all, because it's a great movie to own.

    Blackboard Jungle Discussion

    I saw *Blackboard Jungle* for the first time a few months ago, and today I watched the last few minutes of it. I loved it and thought it was great. I've always been a fan of Glenn Ford, so I pretty much like him no matter what character he plays, but his performance in this film is definitely one of his best I think. But probably one of my favorite things about the movie is Vic Morrow. My word! He's so great, so convincing. Very 'underrated' actor in my opinion. It's so funny to watch him in that part, and then you go and watch him in television's *Combat!* ('62-'67) for which he plays such a good guy. Lol. Anyway, *Blackboard Jungle* is a great movie with a great story, definitely a must-see for the classic movie fan.
  20. Oh geez, definitely *The Birds* and *The Trouble with Harry*. I kind of wanted to kill myself during "The Trouble with Harry* to quite honest. I thought it was so stupid. Anyway, those are the only two I list right now, because there's still a lot that I haven't seen.

    The More The Merrier

    I _LOVE_ this movie!! It's my all-time favorite of Jean Arthur's. She and Joel McCrae are fantastic together, and I agree about the love scene, wow!...So good! And Charles Coburn! Oh my word, he's hysterical. This movie is definitely a must-see, so I really hope you get to see the entire film soon, *olemusicalfan*.

    The Saddest Movie You Ever Watched

    No particular order. -My Foolish Heart -The Diary of Anne Frank -Marie Antoinette ('38) -The Elephant Man I can't think of a whole lot of movies that have really got to me. I kind of takes a lot for a movie to make me cry and for me to consider it a "sad movie."
