    Scream of Fear (1961)

    Anybody catch this movie over the weekend? I just LOVE it, the ending is so perfect. One question though for anyone who's seen it, when they open up the freezer, WHAT is in it?

    That wouldn't have done any good, all Frankie needed was for her emotions and her mind to grow a bit to catch up with her body, and to make a friend.

    We can also forgive the fact that she doesn't look like a 12 year old because that's exactly the point. She's grown so much over the summer, that's why the man at the bar thought she was an adult and took her into the back room. Though the first time I saw it, I came into it after Frankie takes off her dress and is in the kitchen in her slip and at first I thought it was a boy dressed up as a girl, then I realized it was a girl and figured she might be 16.

    I once saw the Hallmark remake with that girl from Fly Away Home...she did the role absolutely no justice. I think they had it right the first time, Julie Harris was 27 playing a 12 year old and it worked because Frankie was in a sense an 'old' child, the way that she already seemed so burnt out on every aspect in her life.

    I love this movie, it's one of my favorites, I loved Julie Harris (R.I.P) in it as Frankie. I don't know why it's not a more popular film. What's ironic is as a teenager I could relate very much to Frankie even though I had a mother. Especially when Berenice told her 'You're too mean to live' and Frankie replied 'I KNOW IT!', yeah, definitely been there. How about everyone else? Anybody see this movie?

    Greed (1924) what happened?

    First time my mother and I saw this movie, it was the 4 hour version, and we had to watch it installments too so it took 4 nights to see the whole thing.
  7. I LOVE it, it's like a month long Silent Sunday. I've recorded more than I've actually seen so far, but we did see The Phantom Carriage, finally, and I saw Never Weaken the other night. I've also recorded to see later, The Wind, Greed, Way Down East, Metropolis, Intolerance, Safety Last, and some of the shorts like Canned Symphony. I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them right now.

    Silent Movies

    How about Buster Keaton, or "Fatty" Arbuckle?

    "If you can't enjoy Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd, I feel very sorry for you." Agreed! They're the best! Buster especially.

    Greed (1924) what happened?

    I recorded this movie today and it was only 2 hours instead of 4. I suppose this is the 'original' edited version without all the still photos, but why would TCM show that one instead?
  11. I recorded this movie yesterday and saw it last night, and again today. SO funny. Talking Buster is different from silent Buster but he is still hilarious. And he and Jimmy Durante seem to work well in movies together though I've noticed theirs is a distant kind of chemistry, which makes sense because in the ones I've seen, they always come in meeting each other at some point, they don't right away know each other like other comedy pairings. Anybody else see it? What'd you think of it?

    Kapo (1960)

    Did anybody catch this on the Sunday night import last night? I don't know how many years it's been since they last showed this movie, but I finally managed to get it recorded!
  13. Saw this again today. Doesn't matter HOW many times I see this movie or they show it on TV, it NEVER gets old, THIS is my favorite Frank Capra film, and one of my favorites of Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur and of course Lionel Barrymore as the lovable Grandpa Vanderhof, that every family should be blessed to have.

    A Question Posed From An Old Sitcom

    To reply to the original post, before Mae West I think EVERY single Hollywood movie starlet that the world loved was VERY flat chested, you look at them and they're beautiful but they do not look ANYTHING like most of the women you see today, they're not built alike at all. People say Mabel Normand had a big bosom to accompany her petite size which made her sexy but I don't see it.

    Godspell (1973)

    I LOVE this movie. Just would NOT be Easter without it, but I sure wish they could find a better time in the day to show it than 6 A.M. Anybody else like this movie?
