    Noir Alley

    How can there be a 31 days of Oscar in February when there is only 28 or 29 days in the month?

    What is this all about?

    I use Chrome and I have a Mac and I think it could be part of my issue.

    Carnival of Souls

    I don't know what happened while I was watching this film but I found it extremely unsettling. Something strange happened though, I found myself falling for Candace Hilligoss a few minutes into the film. She sort of reminded me of Ruta Lee, who was recently on a Perry Mason episode. These independent films seem very real to me. Then I realized that the actress would be in her 80's today. There was so much realism that you can overlook the mediocre acting. Even though it was dated, in a way it could have been filmed last week. I knew an independent director here in Maryland back in the 70's. Maybe the fact that the dialog was delivered in a natural way without any flourish gave the film a real look. I was only 11 when it was made and it was a real treat to see the old cars and the abandoned Carnival. The creepy organ music added to the uneasy feeling.

    Noir Alley

    Glad I tuned in and found out that Noir Alley is taking the entire month of February off. Like I said earlier it's only two hours a week for crying out loud. I can sleep late on Sundays for a month.

    Noir Alley

    Thanks. I have been so busy (I'm a musician among other activities) that I missed any announcement. Since I have a band rehearsal this evening I will have to schedule a DVR recording for tonight. Thanks for letting me know. I guess it's obvious that Noir is my favorite genre.

    Noir Alley

    Here I am complaining again about the omission of Noir Alley today. Isn't this but a two hour spot and why must it disappear whenever there is a holiday weekend or special event? Can't TCM show a Noir film in the usual spot even if Eddie Muller is on vacation or it is a holiday weekend? It's only a two hour spot once a week (well, two with the midnight showing). I can't be the only one that feels this way. This is the last time I will formally complain about this. Please forgive me.

    Wow this guy really doesn't like TCM anymore!

    I don't know if this was covered. Why is there no daytime host? Isn't it a matter of them filming the intro's ahead of time? I like the personal touch of a host. I do agree with a lot of what the original poster was saying. Robert Osborne was the heart and soul of TCM and the new much younger hosts appear to be just going through the motions. I like the idea of bringing an older actor back to host occasionally. There must be actors in their 70's and early 80's that would be up to the task. It shouldn't be a task really, it should be fun.

    So now I am having problems accessing the board in Firefox and I still have problems with Chrome. I know when I'm not wanted. Alas, woe is me!

    Not enough Noir?

    Are there not enough Noir films that prevents Noir Alley from being on every Sunday? I have grown accustomed to making it part of my Sunday at 10 am and there are sometimes weeks where it is not aired. Even if it can't be hosted every week can we at least watch a Noir film Sundays at 10am?

    Really bad but classic movies.

    I might have asked this question before. There was a movie made around 1958 where a young boy is turned into a werewolf because of nuclear testing. I only remember a scene of him sitting on the porch and a little while later he looks like a wolf boy.

    I love TCM but I also see the same movies repeated often.

    Thanks, I haven't been to that end of the board yet. This is a big place.

    Maybe if it was "Robot Monster" which is pretty bad and funny at the same time. Some of those cult movies such as "Eraserhead" are great films.
