    Has anyone read any of the biographies about Jeanettea? I see a few and am wondering if anyone can recommend the best one and why. Also, I have most of her early films for Lubitsch, is there a boxed set out there anywhere for her films with Nelson Eddy?



  2. I like the Aristocats, though it is not my Disney favorite. I do like the music and even have some framed lithographs from the movie that I found some years back. Not my favorite era for Disney movies, but it still is fun, especially Everybody Wants to be a Cat! I remember having that song on a 45 record when I was a kid.


    I loved the Emperor's New Groove....I think that movie is so underrated, totally hilarious! And the first Lilo and Stitch will always hold a special place with me.


    I really love all of the early Disney movies and I like a lot of the music from Disney movies over the years. WE've been listening to a lot of the Sherman Bros Songbook in our house lately and my 4 year old has become an Annette fan.

  3. I'm not too bothered by the heatwave, though it was a bit humid today. I have zero tolerance for cold. I live in MD now but we are moving to Florida, and part of the reason we chose Florida is because of my inability to tolerate the cold. Of course, I wasn't outside that much today either except while at the pool so I'm sure if I was working outside in 100 degree heat I'd feel differently.

  4. This movie sounds really appealing to me. Does it contain any graphic violence, vomit, etc? I have a hard time watching these things, especially on the big screen. I have mixed feeling about Woody Allen's movies, some of them I really like, others I can't get into at all. I absolutely love The Purple Rose of Cairo, that is probably my favorite.


    I have a lot of answers to this question. Like many have said, it is an escape to a different time. I do not like graphic violence, vomit, etc., and I know that these things will not be shown in classic films, but that is probably more an answer to "why I don't watch a lot of current cinema" instead of "why I watch classic films. There is something that just speaks to me in many of these films, a kind of magic that is only understood by other people who enjoy classic films. I'm a sucker for an old fashioned hollywood romance, since my "romances" have never been anything like that. I love to watch the classics and really consider what was going on in the world when the movie was being made, to get a better picture of why the public did(or didn't ) respond to the movie.



  6. I started watching this movie Thursday morning but had to leave for work about 20 minutes in. I unfortunatley, do not have DVR. Does anyone know where I can find it? I want to see the rest of it, but haven't had much luck locating it so far.

  7. I think with Bogey it was definitely presence and power. I don't find him to be that attractive, but there is something sexy about him. I don't tend to be attracted to men with conventional good looks and when I hear peers and coworkers talking about the hot guy on whatever show they are watching, I usually don't agree. But i don't like clean-cut and conventional. A few people have mentioned William Powell and although I really like him as an actor, he doesn't do it for me looks-wise. I do agree about Joel McRea, he was good looking, as was Bill Holden. But I also am attracted to more offbeat looks, for instance, I really like Sam Shepard, especially in Days of Heaven. Although they were not actors, I also think Irving Thalberg and Victor Fleming were both really attractive.

  8. It's not hard for me to pick my life's worst son had leukemia and died when he was 2. I'd say the day he died was the worst day, but it may actually be the day I finally accepted that he was going to die and had given up hoping for a miracle, which was 2 days prior.

    I recall Mother's Day being pretty difficult the year after he died. I have a daughter who is 3 and Mother's Day has been a much happier occasion in the years since she has been born.

  9. I was quite surprised by the lineup, especially considering that the Moguls and Movie Stars came on at 7. Not the type of lineup I expected to follow it. I actually do enjoy documentaries, but I agree that these choices just didn't seem TCM fare.

  10. I actually really like Chevalier, and I have a very soft spot for his pre-code movies(Lubitsch and Love me Tonight particularly) and I did like him in some of his later films as well. I am a musical fan though, so I could see why his style would not suit everyone.

  11. I used to listen to Massive Attack(and Tricky) a lot in the 90's. I'm in an ELO mood today.
