    @valentine I have over 400 DVD of stuff recorded off TCM but didn't want to put that on here for fear of getting them taken away AND I STILL CAN APPLY MYSELF TO EVERY ONE OF THE ONES LISTED SO FAR!!
  5. You know you are addicted to TCM if.... ....You look at movies and say "oh look it's in color" ....you feel a film is lacking unless Robert Osborne introduces it ....you try to get your husband to install a tv w/ cable above your bathtub ....when you turn on the tv it is automatically on TCM ....your 8 and 10 year old kids know who Bette Davis is ....your animais are named freddy, ginger, bogie and baby ....you can't sleep unless the tv is on ....you get up in the morning and check what is on for the day and THEN get your coffee ....you know the names of the films that roll behind the rating screen before a film comes on ....you notice something has been moved on the set ....your DVR is %90 full with TCM films ....your heart beats a little faster when you hear the "dum dum dum dum" of the rating screen ....you look at the clock and say oh it is 7pm, "lets see what Robert is doing" ....you really don't know what people are talking about when they talk about things on TV the night before ....your 2 year old watches "singing in the rain" everyday ....you think of Frank Sinatra's Oceans 11 as the "Real one" ....you call the people on TCM CFU "friends" ....your kids can name the classic movie stars depicted in "Looney Tunes" ....you would rather read an autobiography of a classic movie star than the NY Times bestseller ....people see an old movie and think of you ....you watched the "moguls and movie stars" series more than twice ....people think you only own 1 shirt the "TCM" shirt ....you know the difference between the Marx brothers ....you refer to sunday's as "silent sundays" and the kids think it means nap time ....you get up and TRY to dance with Fred Astaire ....you know Max Factor was a real person, not a cosmetic company ....you finish the crossword puzzle in the Now playing magazine a month in advance ....your LCD TV has burn marks from the Letterbox format on TCM and finally ....you are reading this and saying "I do that!!!"

    Ready for the APP!!

    I am so ready for them to release the festival app!! It will be much better than my 4 sheets of paper spread across the wall with pink highlighter and endless notes!! Any Idea when it may be released? I still have the one from last year will it just be an update of that one?

    To See or Not to See

    Ok, I've never seen Now, Voyager, it was on yesterday and is on my DVR. So should I watch it before I see it in the theater?
  9. I should be there, I am debating on taking the WB tour so if I don't I will be there with bells on!!
  10. For those of you who have been to both which would you choose? I don't think I will have the time to go to both. I haven't really found any good info on the Demille barn but saw that the Hollywood Museum in the old Max Factor building is offering a discount for pass holders. So what do you suggest?

    TCM Film Festival App

    Are they going to have a TCM FF app again like last year? Even though I didn't get to go I still downloaded the app so I could follow along. It was really neat.

    For us newbies...

    Ok those lucky ones of you who got to go to the film festival last year....answer please let us learn from you!! What is one thing that you did that you wouldn't do again? What one thing did you NOT do that you would do this time? ONE thing (not including movies) you must see? (can be hollywood landmark or a special presentation done by TCM) Would you spend all day in the theater or take breaks and not see a segment of movies? And Finally....One piece of advice to all the newbies...

    TCM Classic Film Festival - Who's going?

    For those of you who are worried about where the money goes and those of you who are interested in seeing the movies on the big screen I found a happy medium that is great for me because it is MUCH eaiser on the checkbook it is Robert Osborne's Classic Film Festival. You can get a pass to see 8 movies and have brunch with RO for $100 It is in Athens GA and it is non profit the funds go to the UGA journalism dept. See happy medium. They also have celebrity guest attending to introduce each movie as well as RO. You can check out the website at www.robertosbornefilmfestival.com

    King Solomons mines

    In the opening sequence of King Solomons Mines there are 2 elephants shot. It is a very real looking scene, Were there really elephants killed or were they very very trained elephants?
