    Yes, I would correct him with something like: You know, TMC is The Movie Channel and TCM is Turner Classic Movies.

    Many critics didn't like Burr's performance in APITS with Leonard Maltin calling his "scenes as fiery D.A. downright absurb."

    If Eddie is reading this, here's a request. Please have TCM show 1949's Impact with Brian Donlevy, Ella Raines, Charles Coburn, Helen Walker and Anna May Wong. Sidebar: In this film noir, Donlevy's home was in the Brocklebank Apartments at 1000 Mason Street in San Francisco, mostly famous as the building where Kim Novak's character, Madeleine, lived in Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958).

    Nobody! This year's show was just fine and much shorter (3 hours 18 minutes) without a host.

    Who watched the entire Oscars?

    Show was 3 hours 18 minutes instead of the usual 4+ hours. Maybe not having a host shortened it?

    Who watched the entire Oscars?

    I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Best one I've seen in years. So not having a host, a few surprises (including one big shock) and a shorter show (3 hours 18 minutes as opposed to the usual 4 + hours) proved to be improvements.
  7. Gee, the Oscars this year turned out pretty darned good without a host and with some Academy surprises. I, for one, really enjoyed it!

    Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

    Lana Turner was originally cast as rape victim Laura Manion and had, in fact, filmed several scenes before she and Otto Preminger had a falling-out over how she should play the role. She asked to be excused opening the door for Lee Remick.

    New Poll: Favorite Male Screen Star

    Interesting that your image is of William Holden, yet he's 16th on your list. Holden tops my list, mainly for Sunset Blvd. But also for Born Yesterday, Stalag 17 (your image), Picnic, The Country Girl, Sabrina, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Bridges at Toko Ri, Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing and for two movies not from the 1950s: Network and The Wild Bunch.

    Washington Post's Best Dance Scenes in Movies

    Betty Grable and Dan Dailey danced up a storm in the 4 musicals they made together. Surprised not one number was included. Btw, the writer does realize that, despite shaking her shoulders seductively, there was a reason Marilyn was photographed from the waist up through most of the "Diamonds" dance number in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: She couldn't dance!

    Tyrone Power

    I recently watched him in 1941's A Yank in the RAF with Betty Grable and John Sutton and really enjoyed it. A gem of a forgotten film.
  13. I also didn't receive my October Now Playing email. Nor did I receive the Oct 15th reissue. However, a friend did forward his, but still....

    The Man-Child Persona in Movies

    Very funny, Dargo. You made me LOL.

    Golden age: Roll call

    "Wet she's a star, dry she ain't" refers to Eleanor Holm, star of Billy Roses's Aquacade, not to Esther Williams. In 1938, Rose divorced Fanny Brice and in 1939 he married Holm.
