    I Just Watched...

    I love this movie very much! I believe that Myrna Loy played a menacing oriental after this only in: The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932). She was perfect in both. I am glad that she stopped playing such roles before she began to parody herself. Ricardo Cortez and C. Henry Gordon are a joy to watch. It did sadden me that the scenes of Betty Furness as one of the women were cut. I had watched her on: I've Got a Secret and What's My Line? and had hoped to see what acting credentials led her to be a regular on such panel shows. It was only after missing her in this movie that I learned that her role and another role were cut. I do not know if those scenes were removed prior to the movie's release or were a part of its later reduction.

    Old King Arthur Movies

    I am surprised that no one has mentioned: Camelot (1967). Musicals are not to my taste but this movie is dear to my heart. It may be because the leads are not highly accomplished singers and so there is a bit of realism in their less-than-gosh-wow singing. How can one not love a movie which remains steadfast to its innermost truths: King Arthur: This is the season for gathering flowers. Lancelot Du Lac: Knights? Gathering flowers? King Arthur: Well, someone has to do it! I find the series: Merlin (2008-2012) to be a very interesting and entertaining take on the King Arthur legend. I appreciate irreverence and so to see King Arthur as a bit of a prat is quite refreshing.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I believe that is little different from what you might expect to see in any bar near an engineering college on cheap-pitcher night.

    It is my understanding that they are very welcoming and supportive of other immigrés. The government seems to have also a better attitude towards people from Ukraine than the United States does. That is why I stated that it would have been easier for me if I had chosen Canada.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I would not say that I would root for him in any particular manner but I do find that I sympathize with Godzilla. The same is true for the Creature from the Black Lagoon and any number of other innocents who come to be seen as villains through no fault of their own.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I believe that the important factor is that it is possible to identify with a character. I do not mean by this: "I understand fully this character's hopes and dreams because I also am a sex worker who became a nun who is now studying for a master's degree in Sino-Welsh Archaeological Motifs in Shakespearean Sonnets." It can be simply knowing a person of the character's type and having an appreciation for their thoughts and feelings and reactions if placed in such a situation. "Seeing things from another person's point of view" is a natural part of being human and so we can internalize to some degree the pressures the character is facing and the turmoil they cause.

    I realize fully that I may be taking a position which will be ridiculed but I will state openly that it would have been far easier for me to establish in Canada but I believe I made the correct move by selecting United States.

    Do You Watch TCM Underground Often?

    I have watched approx. thirty of those movies. I would guess that I watched about half of that number on TCM Underground. I remember something other than the title of eight of them.

    I put the fun in funeral. I put the laughter in manslaughter. I put the hot in psychotic.

    April 2019 Schedule is up

    I do hope that you watch: Jewel Robbery (1932) which airs that afternoon. William Powell and Kay Francis are quite wonderful together. To have Alan Mowbray is a great bonus. I am sure that you are aware that: Footsteps In The Dark (1941) which airs that evening stars that tall guy with the funny mustache. I quite love him in the role and wish that he had made more movies of that type.
