    what is everyone's favorite war film and why?

    I agree with you, Joe. However there's no denying that when people think of war movies, a lot will usually associate the genre with movies about WW1, WW2 or Vietnam. Maybe even Iraq and Afghanistan. That's just my impression, anyway.
  2. This is AWESOME news, I just had a friend e-mail me this link to a discussion at the Silver Screen Oasis: http://silverscreenoasis.com/oasis3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=3282 Congratulations to Dewey1960 for his fine work in programming this very appealing film noir festival! B-)

    Analysis of Hitchcock films

    Could you share the name of the book that you make reference to? I'm familiar with some Hitchcock bios, but not sure about the book you mention. There's a lot of recurring themes in Hitchcock's movies that I enjoy, although I suspect even those who don't enjoy all of his recurring themes can still enjoy the sheer suspense of his movies, especially those that are considered his best movies. And since there's quite a few Hitchcock movies coming up on TCM, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to come up with many examples of his themes, technique, etc. What I find most interesting (and sometimes a bit disturbing) are Hitchcock's conflicted views about women, as well as his recurrent suspicion and distrust towards pretty much all authority figures.

    Foreign Films

    > {quote:title=theladyeve wrote:}{quote} > I would personally love to see a month devoted to international cinema - Italian films - Fellini, Rossellini, Antonioni, Pasolini and others. And the French cinema - including The New Wave - Godard, Chabrol, Truffaut, Rohmer. And so much more - the Japanese classics, The Apu Trilogy...a sampling of the greatest films of from around the world. > I'm definitely there with you, ladyeve, although I'm afraid those of us who enjoy whatever foreign-language films TCM can program may be somewhat of a minority among all TCM viewers, but all things considered, TCM has done a pretty good job, as with the examples you just mentioned.

    The Good the Bad and the Ugly

    > {quote:title=weAponX wrote:}{quote} > One film that could do with a soundtrack rehash is "My Name is Nobody"- Not actually directed by Leone, but he influenced it. That's my favourite of all the Westerns related to some form of Pasta. According to imdb.com (and of course that may not be completely reliable) Leone did in fact direct that movie, but was not credited for some unexplained reason.

Awww but that's such a good impression!

    Gregory Peck

    Coming up on April 21st is a Gregory Peck movie I've never seen, "Behold a Pale Horse". I don't know much about it, but it also stars Anthony Quinn and Omar Sharif, and was directed by Fred Zinneman, whose movies tend to be quite above average. So I've a hunch it's going to be a good movie, or at least an intersting one.

    Movie Rambles

    > {quote:title=MissGoddess wrote:}{quote} > Awwww those dogs are simply adorable! :x Almost makes me want to learn to play the violin myself. The dogs might well be easier, though.
  11. > {quote:title=Ollie_T wrote:}{quote} > Gloria Grahame was always terrific as some teary innocent-appearing lass, then reveal those daggered eyes matched her sharp fangs, too. CM would do SO well in such a role. Heh, that's hilarious! I actually saw that promo with the fan programmers, but it would have _never_ occured to me to see her in that light! Interesting idea.

    Musicals that DESPERATELY need to be remade...

    > {quote:title=LonesomePolecat wrote:}{quote} > well, I liked the TV gypsy. ANd I completely agree--nothing can come close to the original strippers. But I'd much rather they remake it with the recent broadway cast. Did you watch it recently? (On Broadway, I mean).

That's a great poster, MG! Although I wonder if a reward of confederate money would be much incentive these days!
