    greta garbo

    why is it that TCM takes so long to show her films and when they do, they are at very bad hours. however, i see that on may 2nd they will be showing as an essential no less, Ninotchka and then Anna Christie which they nver show and they will also show Queen Christina which was way ahead of its time in content, watch the film and see what i mean, anyway thank you TCM for this nice treat, keep up the good work, incidentally i am sick of seeing Gaslight it is a good film but really every other week it is on.......and correct me if i am wrong but Bergman does not create much interest today, lots of young people do not even know who she is, but they know Garbo!

    Your 2014 Summer Under the Stars Suggestion List

    GARBO, GARBO, GARBO, GARBO AND MORE GARBO, FOR GOODNESS SAKES HOW CAN TCM CONSTANTLY PUSH HER ASIDE WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY CURRENT ITEMS IN HER NAME: I.E. PERFUMES, POSTERS, CLOTHING LINES AND EVEN SWEDISH MONEY SOON TO BE ISSUED.......SHE IS TRULY A MOVIE ICON COVERING BOTH SILENT AND TALKING PICS......NOT MANY ACTRESSES COULD BOAST SUCCESS OVER TO TALKIES AND SHE DID HER BEST WORK IN THE TALKING ERA! YOU CLAIM TO BE CLASSIC FILMS BUT HOW CAN YOU FORGET HER??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Sick and tired of Joan Crawford

    i am a fan of Ms. Joan although i have to say my favorite is Garbo and Joan loved her acting too and her beauty and Davis once said that Garbo was a witch before the camera, praising her acting skills, each of these ladies possess their own qualities, show some respect for them and in this case for Joan!
  5. come on TCM gives us a break - she has been overlooked for the last 9 years!

    The word Classic

    Pardon, my french, but does not the word classic identify something or someone who has endured the test of time? yes, there are some great films and stars of more modern times, but to be called classic they must endure the time test of longevity and love by the public, so when Turner named the movie channel, it is called Turner Classic Movies - remember the middle name and show us films that fit that description and deserve the respect that goes along with the word, keep showing us Garbo, Davis, Crawford, Bogart, Taylor - etc...you get the general idea???????

    Mourning the death of TCM as we know it...

    i agree with you what is with all the new films - yes there are some great things being done today and after the 50's but classic means classic and to become a classic of anything you must endure time - only that is accomplished with aging - so the older films are the only classics that have endured to this time - long live Garbo, Crawford Bogart Davis and all the classic ones!
  10. my list is: Camille Titanic - 1997 Pearl Harbor 2001 Grand Hotel Anna Karenina - 1935 The Godfather Parts 1 and 2 i could go on and on but you can see there are some great newer films too added: Casablanca Gone with the Wind Flesh and Devil - silent Dr. Zhivago let me leave this now - i really could go on and on!

    Don't care anymore what TCM does

    sorry, i love TCM but i am glad the story of film is ending, that was pure junk - we want to see classic American film- and some occasional imports, let them show Garbo's foreign films,-she was a beauty even before MGM- viv la TCM!

    NO OBSERVANCE OF VETERANS DAY, TCM?

    i have a right to saY THAT TCM did not observe veterans day - i know it was Monday and you should know that too - i am a loyal American and thinks that the Vets should have been honored by TCM - and yes i am sick of this foreign junk that is being shown - i am watching TCM less and lesser these days - thank goodness Crawford will be SOTM in January maybe TCM is returning to its senses!
