    Our Members Tributes to Robert Osborne (1932-2017)

    Robert Osborne, one of a kind, a gentleman, a true professional, a class act, the accolades can go on and on, but in his case they are all fitting and true. I will miss his presentations and interviews but I know he is in a better place. He touched the lives and left behind fond memories to many, rest in peace Mr. O.

    Shepherd of the Hills

    I also have no idea if the book explained Carey's source of income but being an ex-con he was sure to have picked up some handy tips on robbery and burglary.

    National anthems in movies

    The film "Poltergeist" starts with the National Anthem.

    The Enchanted Cottage Question

    Fred, I'm heading out to Walmart to check out your theory.

    Does TCM count in the Nielsen ratings?

    I've been bombarded with phone calls for the past week or so by Nielsen but I've never responded to the phone and rarely will to an unsolicited call. Well they sent me a survey anyway, I hope they sent you $5.00 with the unsolicited survey like they did me, I'm going to buy bananas.

    Gleason's "Gigot" reminded me of the "Pool Soul" character he portrayed on TV but I'm glad I watched it and did enjoy the film. His dirty appearance was a bit much but then again he was a portraying a dimwitted janitor who lived in a dirty basement. The fact he composed the music for the film is evident to me although it was arranged and conducted by Michel Magne.

    Looking forward: January 2014 on TCM

    Tiki, your watch list for January includes "The Beginning Of The End" and the schedule reads "The Beginning Or The End", so just a heads up that there are two films with similar titles (except the "of"/"or").

    Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

    Maybe he didn't inhale, other than vast quantities of food.

    Is TCM now cutting off ending credits?

    For the record I have a copy of "Above Suspicion" that I recorded off TCM on June 1, 2011. It had no end credits but the cast of about 13 was listed at the begining of the film along with the names of the characters they portrayed. I doubt TCM would edit a film in any way.

    Jonathan Winters, dead at 87

    His appearances on Dean Martins show were always a treat, a funny man and gifted entertainer. R.I.P Mr. Winters------Semper Fi.

    "Down to the Sea in Ships": A Whale of A Film!

    This is the first time I watched this film and think Barrymore was just great in it, one of his best in my opinion. I also like the fact that someone coundn't watch it because of "whale cruelty".

    Knights of the round table

    I don't know the premier theater but if it's any help IMDB shows the release date in Hollywood on December 22, 1953.

    You Tube has a lot of Academy Award moments if you want to search/pick & choose.
  17. I have a recording from a TCM showing that I believe was on Feb. 2, 2009 that runs several minutes over three hours and has a full "Intermission" "Entr'acte", unlike the 20 second "Intermission" on the film shown this week. The start of the film is also preceeded by "MGM/UA" "United Artists" logos and not the roaring lion MGM logo of the print recently shown. It would be nice if TCM would show the most complete and sharpest version of a film, especially one shown as often as this one, or not show it at all.

    You forgot the bigee, Hanoi Jane.

    Love Child

    David Jannsen always reminded me of Clark Gable, especially the ears, and of course Gable and Loretta Young did have a love child, Judy Lewis.

    Loving Una Merkel Day!!

    Una usually is fun to watch but "Sweethearts Of The U.S.A". was such a stinker even she couldn't make it watchable. She must have needed a quick buck for something or other to ever sign on to that project.
  21. Not a big deal? Obviously those at TCM must be of the same mindset or they would rerun a good copy of the film, the sooner the better. When I record a film I'd like it to be as glitch free as possible.
  22. Well not only in Canada, the sound cut out at about 14min.& 29 sec. to 16min.& 19 sec. in the central New York Time Warner Cable broadcast. I hope someone at TCM checks the copy they showed, they should get a refund or credit for an inferior product.

    Jane Fonda

    I believe she will always be remembered by the vast majority as the "Hanoi Bombshell".

    Call of the Wild???

    So Buck and Gable both went after...........oh well, I better stop there.
