  1. Really bad but classic movies.

    I love TCM but I also see the same movies repeated often.
  2. Really bad but classic movies.

    Thanks, I haven't been to that end of the board yet. This is a big place.
  3. Really bad but classic movies.

    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.
  4. I love Noir Alley and some of the sci fi films that I have seen on TCM. Would a "bad cinema" night work? Maybe just one film a week but not so horrible a film that no one would want to watch it. A film like Robot Monster, Beast With a Million Eyes, Billy the Kid Meets Dracula and some 50's and 60's weird films. Some of these films do show up occasionally on TCM but I consider Bad Cinema as an art in its own right. It has to be a bad film but not hideously awful. It would need to have some value as a cult film or so rare that we have heard about it but never seen it before.
  5. Noir Alley

    Shouldn't Noir Alley be aired in the dead of night? Sunday at 10 am seems like a time for family viewing. Now 10 pm is a different story.
  6. Since no one will help in the technical issues section.

    Yes I have cleared the cache. I am using a Mac. Slaytonf what is wrong with my wanting to resolve this problem with Chrome?
  7. Since no one will help in the technical issues section.

    As you can see the email section is grayed out and it will not accept the password either. I am here now in Firefox. If I am not good enough to help in the help section than maybe I should move on. I realize there have been updates but it only takes a few minutes to look in the help section. Maybe I sound angry but I think any of you would be frustrated receiving this pop-up every time you try to log in with Chrome.
  8. I am receiving this screen in Chrome for last week or so. I am about fed up with posting in technical issues.
  9. Upgrade issues-- please fix

    Thanks Lawrence A. It has been so frustrating that I figured if I was a "squeaky wheel" someone like you would respond. I appreciate that. There has to be some issue with a Mac and Chrome and maybe it could be the updated operating system from Apple. Never happened before the update.
  10. Upgrade issues-- please fix

    I am getting this message: This Community is Not Available Please contact the community owner for assistance. I haven't done anything bad to be blocked from the message boards. It could be my terrible sense of humor but people here wouldn't know about my bad puns. And Chrome does not work at all with TCM in general. Maybe because I have a Mac? I am getting an erroneous logon screen with grayed out fields in the Chrome browser. Maybe the problem here is that the site itself is very complex and there are many users who are accessing the site at the same time. I should try at 4 am to see if it is better.
  11. Watch TCM

    Maybe if someone actually cared.
  12. The Third Man (1949)

    I find it a little difficult to understand with the strong Austrian, German and Russian accents. Maybe this makes it slow for some people, it requires a lot of concentration. The Zither music really slows it down in my opinion. Maybe a Zither with an Orchestra would have given a fuller sound. Depending on where the copy is printed some copies are very grainy. I like the movie and have it on video and will still watch it on TCM.
  13. Music of Film Noir

    I found a copy of "I'd Rather Have The Blues" from Kiss Me Deadly on Youtube. It's great to hear the entire song crystal clear.
  14. TCM and Chrome

    Gee, thanks for the help. I have been a member here for many years and can't believe that there has not been one response. Am I the only one with these problems with Chrome???
  15. Mid-Atlantic accent

    Was the Mid-Atlantic, Transatlantic accent used mainly in the early talking pictures? At some point in time it disappeared from most films but in the 30's it seemed that most actresses and a few actors acquired the accent. Were these people from the theater? When did the accent phase out?
