    Internal Battles in Classic Film

    The first character that popped into my head while reading your post was Fred Dobbs and greed that overwhelmed his mind. (That's Fred Dobbs the character - not the esteemed TCM poster).

    The Post an Interesting Pic thread

    Is that Ronald Reagan in the underwear ad in Life magazine?

  4. This was very likely a tv-movie from the early '70's and I remember very little of it. A poor Southern black family moves to a new community, possibly to a big city or a west coast town. I think it was a modern-day setting (late sixties-early seventies) because I remember a station wagon. The only detail I remember was the youngest son always needed his siblings to get him down from the top bunk bed where he slept. At the end of the movie, he wakes up on Christmas morning and, much to his delight, there is a ladder mounted to the bunk beds and he happily gets down by himself. Not much to go on. Any ideas?

    (Really) early suggestions for SUTS 2013?

    Does TCM have access to Universal pics? If so, they cannot continue to ignore Abbott & Costello. They've done Groucho and they've done Laurel & Hardy, it's time for Bud and Lou. For my money, they're the best comedy team of all time. Lou: I'm not gonna marry a pretty girl, I'm gonna marry a homely girl. Bud: Why's that, Lou? Lou: Well, a pretty girl's liable to run away. Bud: Well, a homely girl is just as apt to run away. Lou: Yeah, but who cares?
  6. I'd have them air "North by Northwest" 4 times in a row. That'd get this board humming.....

    101 Things I Learned From Watching TCM...

    If you're the "good guy", you only need to throw one punch. The "bad guy" will be knocked out cold.

    Lookalikes?

    I'm still unable to post pics but as a young Twilight Zone fan, I thought Gig Young and Richard Long were the same person.

    That's Fred? I thought for sure it was Walter Matthau.
  10. Thanks for your suggestions. There's a few on there I haven't seen. Any more?
  11. In the past year, I've come to the realization that I absolutely love movies from the '70s that were filmed on the streets of New York City. They are usually gritty dramas such as: The French Connection The Seven-Ups Marathon Man Taxi Driver These are just off the top of my head. I don't know what it is about these movies but I can watch them over and over. It might be the clothes or the cars or the signage on the streets and buildings. Or all of the above. Maybe you can list some of your faves so I can look for ones I may not have seen. Thanks, UC

    TVMovie/Miniseries Trivia

    Thanks Flash. This emotional movie is considered by many (including me) to be the best TV movie ever made. An interior scene in this movie (the co-stars home) was filmed in the same set used by a long-running TV series. In fact, I'd guess about 75% of this series scenes were shot in this set. Name the movie. Name the TV show.

    CBC Movie Gone (For Now)

    I live in Niagara Falls, New York and we've always received CBC and CTV (We used to get Global and CHCH out of Hamilton as well). CBC is probably the prime reason that I've been a Maple Leaf fan since the early 70's. However, the picture quality on that channel has always been sub-par. The other Canadian channels we receive(d) are fine. Any ideas why this is?
