    LEAST & MOST FAVORITE of the week...

    I liked the movie The Fallen Idol, that came on last week. I think a week or so before I really enjoyed the movie Caught, with James Mason and Barbare Bel Geddes.

    Street Angel (1928) on Thursday, TCM Premier!

    I'm traveling and the past 2 hotels I've been in have not had TCM! Very disappointing, I'd like to see this! I guess it could be worse, at least I am somewhere warm

    "The Brothers Warner" - a TCM premiere! (March 8th)

    I have this coming from Netflix this week, I'm sure I will wind up buying it so thanks on the tips about the sets.

    The Third Man and Carol Reed

    This movie is showing at the AFI silver theatre near DC starting the weekend of March 27, they are showing most of Welles movies and some documentaries as well. I love this movie, because I think Orson and Joseph Cotten are great, plus I really enjoy Carol Reed's films that I have seen as well.
  5. Very cool! NY is just a little too far for a last minute trip but that would be so cool to see on the big screen with an orchestra.

    The vigorous director - the films of Victor Fleming

    I'm going to try and catch some of the Good Earth when I get home, actually the rest of the day's lineup in fact. Tha film fest in Manhattan sounds pretty cool, I haven't seen some of Fleming's earlier films and would like to.

    *CANDIDS* 2

    I just found this thread and am enjoying all the pictures! I am reading the Victor Fleming bio and just got past the section where he was involved with Clara Bow. Great pictures, I'll have to check back more often.

    Filmmaker Biographies

    I'm reading the Victor Fleming bio now and really enjoying it. I'm interested to know if anyone has read the Paul Bern biography that I've seen for sale on Amazon, I can't remember the author's name. I am always looking for a new bio to read. I also enjoyed The Parade's Gone By, The Lion of Hollywood, On Sunset Boulevard, and so many other, I love reading bio's, particularly of directors/producers etc because they give such a great glimpse of the whole process behind the films and I like to know what was going on behind the scenes of the films I really enjoy.

    Ace in the Hole

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find this Billy Wilder film? I am doing a big project on Wilder for my film class and really would like to use this film. Also, if anyone wants to recommend a book(other than the Ed Sikov bio which I have) I am looking to supplement my info on themes, symbols, and filmmaking techniques Billy used and was known for and need some good info to cite in my paper. Thanks for your help!

    Ace in the Hole

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I must've missed it in the Now Playing guide but will definitely be taping it. I have watched the Billy Wilder Speaks documentary, I wish it had been longer though, just as I really started getting into it, it was over.

    Actors/actresses you just can't stand

    I have a hard time watching a lot of modern actors/actresses but I can't think of any classic actors offhand that I can't watch except Richard Beymer in West Side Story. I love the cinematography and the musical numbers but whenever he comes onto the screen it is like nails on the chalkboard. As far as Brando goes, since he seems to be a popular subject, I do like a lot of his earlier roles, but I can't watch Apocalypse....but I think I just don't really like that movie, other than the music and some of the uses of color.

    Favorite Snack

    Ooh....I love PB and Banana, especially on whole grain or wheat bagels or english muffins. I'm a sucker for ice cream.....I'm pregnant and craving it, but not with pickles

    TCM or TCR

    TCM definitely doesn't repeat as much as other channels, I don't mind a repeat if it's a movie I like. I think I'd be happy though if they never repeated most of the movies that have been on since friday.

    DC area pre-code film fans

    If you are close to MD/DC, during the next month the AFI theater in Silver Spring is doing a tribute to Barbara Stanwyck. Next weekend they are showing Night Nurse, Baby Face, and The Bitter Tea of General Yen. Rare opportunities to see these films on the big screen!

    The Least Sexy!

    Interesting thread! I personally don't find Jimmy Stewart to be sexy at all! Funny to see people feel that way about Jean Harlow. I do think for her photos and films she often had on too much makeup, but she had such a beautiful body. I have a hard time with some modern day actors and actresses, I do not think Angelie Jolie or Jessica Simpson(to name just a few) are sexy at all, but I am a woman so maybe I just don't understand. To me they both look like they are straight off of Jerry Springer! I also don't get the Tom Cruise thing at all. Most the women I know think I'm crazy when I say that but he doesn't do a thing for me.

    Post-1960 films

    I find this thread to be very interesting. I, like many of you prefer films made prior to the 60's. I do like a lot of films from the following decades, but have a great dislike for most of what has been made in the past 5 to 10 years. My BF'; however, does not like classic films and thinks I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like most "new" movies. Nice to see so many others who have a similar viewpoint. I absolutely can't stand vomiting or graphic violence in movies so it's so hard to figure out what it is "safe" to go see in the theaters anymore. I don't mind some post 60's movies on TCM but I'm always suprised when they throw in movies from the 1990's especially.

    By Whose Hand? - Another Great Pre-Coder!

    Thanks for the info! I have not seen that movie but I do like pre code films so thanks for the suggestion, it definitely sounds like a good way to spend a winter evening.

    TCM Remembers

    I always enjoy seeing these every year, though they sometimes make me a bit teary eyed. Thanks for the link to some of the "Remembers" from years past.

    "Remember Last Night"?

    I saw White Banners for the first time last night? Anyone else watch? I thought it was pretty good, though the teenage girls voice was a bit annoying at times. I did enjoy the story though. Also watched Jezebel for the first time in a long while. It's okay, but I do feel like it would've benefited from a longer running time. I felt like I wanted more out of it.

    favorite pre-code film

    I don't have one fave but I do really like Red Dust, Babyface, RedheadedWoman and many others. There are many I haven't seen and would like to. I have the Sin in Soft Focus book, which has a lot of interesting info and pics from the Pre-Code era.

    The 1st Silent You Ever Saw (were you instantly hooked?)

    I remember seeing a version of Greed on TCM a few years back that had stills inserted into it that seemed to run a little longer, can't remember if it was 3 or 4 hrs, it's been a while. I'm trying to remember my first silent, I think it was either a Mary Pickford movie or "It". I wouldn't say I was instantly hooked, more like fascinated. I started reading more about silent films and watching when I could, but I only own a handful. I do enjoy them, but I also have to be in the mood because like foreign films, I need to be able to devote 100% of my attention.

    Any Gary Cooper Fans?

    I love Gary Cooper! I have a soft spot for Love in the Afternoon because it was my introduction to Gary Cooper(Audrey Hepburn was really my introduction into the world of classic films) Interesting what I'm reading here about Meet John Doe.....I had never really thought about the ending that way.

    What is your favorite comedy film's??

    There are so many great classic comedies but Bringing up Baby is one that always makes me laugh, no matter how many times I've seen it.

    Hollywood silent film series

    I have an aging copy of this wonderful series about Silent Films called Hollywood, A Celebration of the American silent film. Unfortunately a former roommate mistakenly taped over a few of the episodes(my copy was not the original). Does anyone know where I might find it? I know I'm probably dreaming, right?Everytime I watch an episode I think of the few episodes that were taped over and wish I still had them. Anyone else love this series as much as I do?

    Unashamed to ask TCM to copy AMC lead

    I remember going to the revivals a few years ago and always wanted to go more often. I've noticed AFI in Silver Spring showing some classic films, I'm looking forward to checking it out. I wanted to see Nosferatu there in October(with orchestra) and my plans fell through but it looks like they show some interesting films from time to time.
