    The Whisperers (1967)

    I watched this film today, and I was rivited! This was the first time I'd seen it, but I'd definitely like to see this one again. I felt such empathy for Edith Evan's character it was incredible. I could definitely see why she was nominated for her role. I also thought the photography was top notch. It must have been incredibly difficult to work on site in those old Victorian buildings.

    I watched this film today, and I was *rivited*! This was the first time I'd seen it, but I'd definitely like to see this one again.

  3. I thought it was great to see Burt Lancaster as a boxer! With his co-ordination from his acrobat training, you'd think he would have been a natural for such a role! This movie had a great cast - so many of the actors fit their parts perfectly.

    Too Many Trailers Lately?

    You're right about Alec - he certainly seems to "do his homework" about the production end of the classics! He's come out with some comments this season that have really surprised me at the depth of his knowledge of many of the directors and, even more so, cinematographers from the "golden age" of movies. You bring up a good point about the cartoons! The last time I saw a cartoon on TCM was earlier this year, when they had a night devoted to animation.

    ?The Phenix City Story? Friday PM 9/25

    I found this to be a terrific film, I'd love to see it again very soon. One thing I was thinking while watching it was that if it was actually filmed there, did the filmmakers have to deal with local hostility while making the film?

    Too Many Trailers Lately?

    You're speaking of "The Essentials", shown on Saturday nights. I enjoy their comments, Alec Baldwin has proved to have a much better knowledge of the whole subject of movies and movie making than I initially thought he would!
  8. Is it me, or is anyone else getting sick of the repetitious showing of trailers for upcoming movies that's been going on lately? It seems as though TCM has stopped showing "shorts" in between movies in lieu of trailers, the same interviews over and over, and merchandising commercials. Yes, we're spoiled, we've avoided commercials for years, and it's their right, but I miss seeing good old "One Reel Wonders" and the like! Yesterday I think I saw the trailer for "Ben Hur" over 10 times! And the same for the interview with Claude Rains' annoying daughter. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like this - so what do you think?

    Unedited version of Zulu

    I've got a copy of ZULU on DVD that has the scene you describe. If I remember correctly, I got it through Amazon a few years ago after extensive searching. It was put out by an outfit called "Belle & Blade Studios", with an address given as 124 Penn Avenue, Dover, N.J. 07801. There's a phone number, 973-328-8488, but no web site listed. It's not the "world's greatest print" - it is widescreen. Just yer basic stereo, no Dolby or other sound enhancement. It wasn't cheap when I bought it, but at that point I was just so happy to find a copy of this movie that price wasn't an issue! This is one of my favorite war "epics". The battle scenes really give you a lesson in how the British Empire was won - the discipline and the 3-rank firing system were mercilessly effective!

    The Maisie Parade

    Interesting observation, MGMMayer, and as I'm watching them today I'm finding it to be very true! The only consistancy seems to be Ann Southern and the "Maisie" character. I've never seen any of these films before, and I'm enjoying them a lot more than I thought I would!

    3 movies I FINALLY seen!!

    I made a special point last weekend to get up early enough to finally watch "Red Dust", which I'd never seen. What a pair Gable and Harlow made in this film! Enjoyed it tremendously, now I'm going to have to buy it!
  12. I also went to Black Rock School in Thomaston CT as a little girl. You've got to be kidding, Kim! I was born + raised in Thomaston, Ct. - I also went to Black Rock School! Small world....... BTW - I enjoyed your "fanatic" bit on TCM, it looked like you really had fun doing it.

    TCM ".com" logo has got to go

    I'm the same kind of user as molo14! I check the listings almost daily, and frequently look up movies in the db. I also check out these forums from time to time, but have never posted until today! I really do appreciate the site, and will make more of an "effort" to log in in the future!
