    Robert Osborne's favorite films

    > {quote:title=finance wrote:}{quote}He mentioned that THE RAZOR'S EDGE was one of his 3 favorite films. What are the other two? I too am curious about them. His remarks about THE RAZOR'S EDGE seem to be in line since he has always gushed over Gene Tierney and said she is one of his favorite actresses. I think Natalie Wood is also but I don't know if any of her films are his favorites (LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER is mine). I also think he may be a Grable fan, for many months in 2011 her Fox musicals were in his Bob's Picks. SPRINGTIME IN THE ROCKIES was in there twice. Once while someone was filling in - but again, I don't know the exact film.

I've seen the movie before but this time, I was really struck by his looks.Amen, amen, amen. I'm struck by his everything. I may be the youngest person that has a shrine of him in my home. LOL

    Tyrone Power bisexual? Transgendered? Whoa, no wonder I rarely post here!

    Sun Also Rises

    This is one of my favorite movies ever. The dialogue is hilarious. Errol Flynn is a hoot - sad that he appears to be playing himself - but he is a hoot. A real gem of a performance comes from Eddie Albert. He really is that friend you can call up when you want to get into some trouble with while having fun. His scenes with Flynn were great. You can really see how much his character really grew to care for Flynn, especially after Gardner left. This film is full of subliminal and implied dialogue. I think the raciest thing really said is the word "impotent" early in the film. You really have to listen to understand as sometimes it seems like Gardner's character is speaking in dramatic circles. I read the book years ago for school and I have totally separated the book from the film (character ages etc) and really enjoy this film. Tyrone received top billing but the rest of the cast really made this film come together....and poor Mel Ferrer's character!!

    Tyrone's got rhe Power

    I agree. Saturday he gets a SUTS day. May 2014 he will be SOTM marking the 100 year anniversary of his birth and one of his daughters, or his son do a retrospective on his work. Fingers crossed.

    RIP Phyllis Thaxter (1921-2012)

    Rest in Peace Miss Thaxter! I just adored her in her many Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Hour roles as well as many other TV and film performances. Such a beautiful woman and a great actress. Her last role was in one of my favorite shows, a 1992 episode of Murder She Wrote and she looked great.

    SUTS actor/actress frequency lists

    Would love to see these folks get a day. Some should also be strongly considered for SOTM. Access to leasing their films aside: Betty Grable Victor Mature Edmond O'Brien Don Ameche Alice Faye Charles Coburn (worth saying again!) Dick Powell John Payne

    25 for TCM UNDERGROUND

    Fred, those other channels do not exactly cater to the classic movie fan. HBO and Cinemax may show ONE film a day, if you are lucky, in an early morning slot on only ONE of their channels. This morning the Stanwyck/Webb/Wagner "Titanic" was on Cinemax. However they are more into their original programming and new movies to cater to classic film fans. Maybe they will add a channel and compete with TCM, who knows. Also, to access many of their channels, one has to have an HD box (extra $$ a month on its own) As for the 1960s movies you saw during your 2 weeks of free Encore, can you name them?? - excluding the Hitchcock films they been airing all summer. I'm curious because I get all of these channels and I don't think your original statement is accurate.

    SHAME ON YOU TCM SHOWING CUT MOVIES

    Interesting thread. No complaints from me about TCM and editing until I see a catheter commercial in the middle of a showing of "Stage Door".

    Star of the Month November?

I'd say they'd deserve it first. > > > BTW Audrey Hepburn was in 31 films, not something like 12. Don't mess with Audrey. > Warren William is soooooo overdue to be SOTM. I also agree with Joan Blondell and George Sanders. I'd add Ty Power, Betty Grable, Edmond O'Brien, Richard Widmark and even Cesar Romero and Victor Mature to the list!!!

    One Million BC; Where it all started!

    > {quote:title=Arturo wrote:}{quote} > I think Victor Mature's acting talents were sorely underappreciated, including by himself. But he gave some strong performances over the years. Even more than for KISS OF DEATH, I think he deserved to be nominated for his Doc Holliday in MY DARLING CLEMENTINE. No disagreements here Arturo. I don't really care about the historical inaccuracies of the film, it is my favorite adaptation of Wyatt Earp and his Doc Holiday is my favorite portrayal of the character.

    One Million BC; Where it all started!

    Sepiatone, Not only do I appreciate your post but I appreciate Mama Sepiatone. Why? Because I LOVE VICTOR MATURE. Sure, he won zero Oscars, had zero nominations, is never mentioned in "best actor" conversation and is probably mostly forgotten outside of the 50s Biblical pics. But you know what? Thanks to TCM and Fox Movie Channel (or at least FMC of a few years ago), I discovered his films and fell in love. I don't care if the film is a stinker, if Mature is in it, I watch. He too should have received an Oscar nom for KISS OF DEATH - my opinion. Several of his films have aired on TCM. I believe he could and should be SOTM - after the great Ty Power of course - and he definitely deserves a SUTS tribute. I own every Victor Mature film I could get my hands on. (Same with Ty Power )

    Celeste Holm dies at 95

    RIP Celeste Holm. I can see TCM maybe putting together a few of her films some evening in the future. If not before SUTS, then in September. Her best film was CHICKEN EVERY SUNDAY. I can watch that movie over and over again. Such a gem.

    Resurrection of drive-ins

    I would start going to movies again if they came back!!! $15 in a cramped seat or $20 in a comfy seat, people talking out loud, smells of the random foods people sneak in as well as the crappy over priced movie food. I would love and welcome the drive in experience. I can see the negatives and the positives about the idea though.
