    Star centennial birthdays

    The Mel Torme version would be fine; he wrote the music and co-wrote the lyrics. PS: and Nat is my #1 person I would like to be stuck with on a desert island (as a musical partner that is).

    Starring Madeline Kahn

    While TCM has always focused on the films that were part of the old, so called, Ted Turner library of films which were mainly from Warner Bros., MGM and RKO. But as you note TCM also shows films from other studios; just not as many. As for AT&T already having an impact on TCM's programming and what they would lease; way to early to say that is happening.
  3. I assume MM is saying the students were wrong to blame Clinton. E.g. this statement by one of the students "The 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there" is illogical, unreasonable and comes from someone that is misguided (at best).

    Racism in Trump's America

    Jeanine is a moron. Oh, and I didn't know liberals were running Fox News.

    Actor Richard Erdman 1925-2019)

    Erdman was great in many films like The San Francisco Story, Stalag 17, The Blue Gardenia and even in a musical Anything Goes. He had an easy charm.

    M A G A >> WINNING!

    Hopefully Trump supporters will do all they can to defeat these 12 GOP Senators in the next GOP primary for their seat. That just increases the odds the Dem candidate wins in the general election. (just like the misguided AOC promised to do to Dems she feels are not progressive enough).

    Please tell me why, since you appear to know.

    M A G A >> WINNING!

    Uh, god is a religious belief \ concert. And yea, you've caught on why these morons are trying to pass this bill: they trust that a so called 'god' will protect students from being shot at school. I would find this funny if it wasn't so pathetic and sad. Anyhow, as an atheist if I lived in the state I wouldn't sue to prevent this nonsense (even though I believe it is a violation of church and state).

    Only fools insecure in their faith would have the desire to push forward such a silly bill.
  10. I don't agree at all since whether an illegal immigrant is deported or NOT applies to all illegal immigrants regardless of race. Like I said illegal immigrants shouldn't be allowed to own cars (or rent apartments or open bank accounts etc....), PERIOD. To imply those that support strong immigration enforcement are racist is asinine. The bigot here is you.
  11. I'm a CA liberal and not a member of the GOP or a Trump supporter but I don't agree with this policy. Undocumented individuals shouldn't be allowed to get a licence for a car since they shouldn't be able to own a car in the USA. While we need immigration reform that should grant amnesty to a select group of the undocumented (say 20% like Dreamers, etc...), the rest need to self deport. The way to make them self deport is to deny any and all services to them.

    Concurrent or consecutive? If concurrent he didn't get any additional time. Thanks

    Leave Him To Heaven-- the presidential hate of drumpf aka trump

    If you're point about 'Vice is a spook' is that a President or Presidential candidate having sex outside of marriage shouldn't be a big deal, I agree with that. Using personal funds to cover-up such behavior is also much-ado-about-nothing IMO.
  14. My wife's boss is from Iran (he is an American citizen), and being a conservative he has attended those fund raising events for every GOP President; those were you pay 10K or so and you get a picture with the President. He has around 3 pictures with GWB, but GWB wouldn't be lying if he said he didn't know him. BUT, in this case, I don't believe Trump; Trump like Kraft used the spa's 'services' and so he likely knows her from way back!

    Women respond to misogyny and sexual predators with power

    About time for what????? One bill will likely pass and be signed by the governor. The other; just an empty political stunt by those lacking power.
  16. I'm surprise anyone would buy this silly BS; Omar was right that Obama's policy stances towards Israel were not much different than Trump. E.g. Obama did nothing with regards to the numerous U.N. policy violations Israel committed with regards to illegal settlements. Omar just made this statement because she was told to by Pelosi and other leading Dems, to put the focus back on Trump instead of historical failed Dem leadership with regards to supporting all things Israel.

    Leave Him To Heaven-- the presidential hate of drumpf aka trump

    Are you nuts???? What does what Trump said (which was also crazy), have to do with white male privilege. Your obsession to classify everything around you related to Trump as racist or white male privilege is a joke. There is of course a lot about Trump to criticize but your efforts make you look like a clown.

    I Just Watched...

    Funny but I couldn't recall who Scott Marlowe was, but I just watched an episode of Gunsmoke and who was one of the main guess stars; Scott Marlowe. The other was William Tallman. It was a well done but sad episode where Tallman is a killer that was released from prison, bonds with the young punk Scott, but finds out there is no way back home.

    After The Thin Man - questions and SPOILERS

    I believe I understood; to me it has little to do with screenwriting skills; i.e. that the screenwriter was inexperienced or didn't know how to write a scene that didn't use movie cliches. Instead the director \ producer told the screenwriter to write the screen with movies cliches because that is what they wanted because they assume that is what audiences wanted. As you note we have seen this thousands of time; that says to me it has nothing to do with screenwriters and their 'skills' but instead what the suits, directors and producers wished to provide. PS: the same two screenwriters were used on both The Thin Man and After TTM, expect that After added someone else; That would be author Hammett. So if screenwriting skills went down, Hammett is to blame (ha ha).

    After The Thin Man - questions and SPOILERS

    To me it is about logic; you want a logical screenplay that handles this situation in a way that is realistic. As Gerald said, the director \ producer wanted an ending with gun play, with juice, with the killer showing over-the-top emotions etc... because this is a more thrilling ending. As for your comparison to the first Thin Man; In many ways that ending is unrealistic and illogical: MacCauley was a lawyer. It is unrealistic to believe a lawyer would pull out a gun. Instead he would have just waited to be arrested. (but again, that would have been boring). Note that in After TTM, David was full of anger and emotion. He hated Selma with a deep passion; so when cornered it is realistic for a man with such feelings to go off and try to kill the gal that done-him-wrong.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Dennis Rodman had a better chance of using his 'force of personality' on Kim, than Trump did. (and some people are questioning mentioning Trump under the narcissist blowhard thread?????).

    Pelosi: 'Not worth it' to impeach Trump

    All of those people were fools due to having TDS. They didn't get scammed by the Dem party establishment (who have never been for impeachment since they knew it wasn't practical and would likely lead to loses in Congress like the failed Clinton impeachment did to the GOP), but instead were just confused and misguided due to their illness.

    Jane Powell as SOTM June 2019

    The Bette Davis film Marked Women is one of the best examples of how Hollywood would try to sanitize what was actually going on with so called hostesses, expect in this 1937 film (the one Jack gave to Bette after they ended their spat and she went to England), they don't try very hard to hide what is going on. There are many visuals that provide clues; e.g. a lot of street walking, especially the closing scene.
