  1. Is everyone a fan of Fred and Ginger? smoking?

    I am also a fan of Fred and Ginger, my favorite film of theirs (that I’ve seen) is “Swing Time.” As for the smoking, I don’t care. That was their choice at the time, and their smoking won’t make me smoke. I’ve never tried it and have no desire to try.
  2. What Are You Watching Now?

    Lol. Can’t do anything without this guy!
  3. What Are You Watching Now?

    Tonight, I’m doing a double feature of two films which are still timely today: “A Face in the Crowd” and “Network.” I’ve got a Cuba Libre in hand, a bird on my shoulder, beef stew cooking away in the crockpot and homemade rosemary bread proofing away in the oven. I’m settled in for the night!

  5. Who deserves next AFI Award?

    I think Robert Redford would be a very worthy recipient.
  6. April 2018 Schedule is Up

    I agree. In a film with many extreme personalities, Peter Finch and Faye Dunaway mainly, I thought Holden really stood out. He did an excellent job. I will also say that I didn't think that Beatrice Straight was so amazing in her small part that she deserved the Oscar. Great, now I may have to watch Network now. Lol. Maybe I'll make it a double feature with A Face in the Crowd.
  7. April 2018 Schedule is Up

    Elizabeth Taylor is SOTM for March.
  8. April 2018 Schedule is Up

    I never heard that from any official source, but I have also noticed that as well. I do like that they're featuring it twice as I personally would prefer to watch the 9pm Noir Alley slot, but that's 12am for the east coast, so perhaps some people would prefer the Sunday morning slot. For me, 7am is too early for a movie and definitely too early for noir!
  9. April 2018 Schedule is Up

    I was just looking at the March and April schedules, and it appears that The Essentials has disappeared from the schedule. Can anyone confirm if Noir Alley has replaced The Essentials as TCM's Saturday night series?
  10. What Are You Watching Now?

    I’m watching “He Ran All the Way” with John Garfield and Shelley Winters. This is another one of those movies with the leading character, in this case, Winters, being a 20-something (presumably) that has a sibling who is maybe 9 at best. The parents look like they could be her grandparents.
  11. The Breaking Point was a great film. Had I not heard prior, I wouldn’t have even known that it and To Have and Have Not w/ Bogie and Bacall were based on the same source material.
  12. Full Frontal Male Nudity is what I am assuming--the acronym seems to be safe. The full phrase seems forbidden on these boards, lol.
  13. April 2018 Schedule is Up

    Thank you for the thumbs up on Freaks! I'm looking forward to it. It seems like a great late Friday night movie. I also loathe Golden Boy and I'm a big fan of Barbara Stanwyck and William Holden but this film didn't work for me. And don't get me even started on Lee J. Cobb. I also have a strong disdain for him. He's okay in 12 Angry Men, but other than that, I've disliked his character in every other film of his I've seen. I think Tony Curtis would have been perfect for Golden Boy if the film had come along ten years later, or Curtis came along ten years earlier.
  14. PILLOW TALK - the horror, the horror!

    Wow for such a “sophisticated” crowd that laughs at the dated aspects of the film, they sure sound like they’ve been living under a rock!
  15. PILLOW TALK - the horror, the horror!

    I completely agree with you re: history. I cannot handle the people who have no interest in history. There are so many fascinating things to study and to learn about how decisions made hundreds of years ago have evolved into the present day's current events. I cannot even imagine being satisfied with only knowing about what is happening right now. Boring! re: the technology thing. That's completely ridiculous. Every thing is a technology. From the wheel to telegraph to smartphones, all technology. These "kids" are probably thinking of technology in terms of smart phones and computers.
