    Really enjoy old sci-fi, mysteries, actually most everything.
  1. Carnival of Souls (1962): creepy

    Started to watch this early a.m. this morning but needed to get to sleep. Saving it for a dark, cold, stormy night to put me in the mood a good night to watch The Haunting too!
  2. Maids in Movies

    My Man Godfrey is one of the movies I put on a 30 min timer on the tv and darken the screen about 60% and fall asleep listening to. I usually last about 7 minutes when doing this however, sometimes I just keep hitting the 30 min button till i've heard the whole movie. Carole Lombard, what a great loss to movies and humanity, so young, so much potential.
  3. Recent Buys

    I've recently purchased several Classic Movie Collections which include: Universals Classic Monster's, Charlie Chan vol 1-5 (already had vol 6) which is over 35 CC movies, also,The Lathe of Heaven and The Ultimate Three Stooges Collection (I know, I know, now you know who I am, a Stooges fan). Anyone else recently purchase a favorite classic or two? My favorite of the above is The Lathe of Heaven as I saw this when it came out on Public TV when I lived near Chicago in the late 70's on WTTW. I also just purchased the book last week and read it in less than two days. OBJ Thanks for the link LawrenceA
  4. Just got it last week. It has five volumes of four to five dvd's in each volume. I think I paid $124.00 for it at Amazon with free shipping. If it was a lot less when you purchased it I'll be bummed, but not too bummed as I really like the set. I have a sixth volume from years ago that nearly completes the whole CC collection. I think I need just six more movies to complete it. Thanks for the link!

  6. The Invisible Man (1933)

    One of my faves too. Watched it last night, again. I noticed several little nuances that I hadn't in the past. Una O'Connor is hilarious. She really went off during this movie a lot more than when she meets Frankenstein's Monster, we only got to see a little bit of her "freak out" this movie she's over the top. Laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. I wish the movie was about 15 min. longer though. I recently purchased the Universal Studio "Classic Monters" collection on DVD which has 30 of THE most classic old sci-fi/horror movies, which is my favorite genre. I've been so pleased the last few days with the amount of my favorites they've been showing on TCM.
  7. LEAST & MOST FAVORITE of the week...

    I'm trying to be as polite as possible, are you a younger person or have you just found "classic movies" recently as some of your first time viewings seem like old some very old faves of mine. Do you like specific actors, genres, etc or just all around good movies? If you would like some reccomendations we're here to help and I have hundreds! Happy viewing!
  8. LEAST & MOST FAVORITE of the week...

    You haven't seen H.K.M.A. till now? I'm sure glad you did as it's one of the best Mitchum movies in which he doesn't play a bad (ngegative) guy but a real bad (positive) guy. The back and forth between he and Ms Kerr as a nun is extremely witty at times and very solemn at others. The other movie which people seldom watch is "the story of mankind" and was pleased that you watched that one too. I try to get my sons (late 20's) to watch some of the classics with me but as soon as they find out a movie is in black and white it's like a light switch go off. Happy viewing!
  9. LEAST & MOST FAVORITE of the week...

    i couldn't stand She, with U. Andress however, the She from 1935 with Randolph Scott, Nigel Bruce and Helen Mack is IMHO very good and has a feel of Lost Horizon to it. Produced by Merian C. Cooper, give this one a try. It took forever to get it out on dvd but it's one that we'll hopefully see on TCM instead of the Ursala Andress (sp) fiasco that TCM shows now.
  10. Ace Drummond/Eddie Rickenbacke

    I really enjoy the serials that TCM shows on Saturdays as they remind me of the old radio show's such as The Shadow, Sherlock Holmes, etc. I record the Saturday shows and then watch several back-to-back. I also record every Bowery Boys/East End Kids movies and my collection is up to around thirty so far. The recent ones are from the early '50's so I hope TCM starts over at the beginning with BB/ESK's movies from the 30's. I know they're kind of silly but it brings my mind back to a simpler time without all the sex/drugs/violence/special effects of today's fare. Also gives my daily dose of laughter is the best medicine. Would love to see a W.C. Fields marathon on TCM as those movies and shorts are few and far between. G
  11. Accidental Viewing

    This happened just today with the film The Last Wave starring Richard Chamberlain and Gulpilil. I'm not a big RC fan although a couple of his movies are quite good. The Last Wave, where has it been? I'm a big sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal movie fan (well everything) but I was quite please that I was able to record the entire film as it had already been on for 15 min or so and I hadn't seen the very beginning. Pleased, quite pleased.
  12. Back in the mid 60's to 70's when I was a youngster I think I watched them on WGN Chicago. It seemed like I watched them after school. My Dad thought they were stupid but my wife who's from Korea laughs her behind off, especially when Curly and Moe get into it. If she's down I can always cheer her up a little by watching a few minutes of the Stooges (along with my bad impressions of Curly).
  13. I know right! I have around 50 movies and tv shows recorded that aren't from tcm and just added five more today. The reason I recorded so many movies is that I had a dvd collection of around 300 movies and tv series that were stolen a couple years back when I spent a week in the hospital and for me a $50 external hard drive and time is a lot less expensive than trying to replace the dvds I had a great collection of 40's, 50's and 60's sci-fi/fantasy/horror/mystery collection. The collection took about ten years to build and most of that time I was employed and not disabled so it's taking me a lot of time and rationing other things to start up again. Hope that makes sense. Not that it applies to this thread my yellow lab Sunny (in photo) passed in Sep last year. She was the first dog that I ever raised from a puppy (have always adopted older dogs before). I never thought that I'd feel as bad and cry like a baby at 55 then I did when she died. Luckily we still have the two smaller dogs and the brown one, Nicole, is with me night and day and even watches tv with me. She actually knows when I say "elephant" or "lion" to look and react. She has several different reactions to different animals on tv. Very funny.
  14. Thanks so much. Had some seriously ill health over the last six months. I went weeks and weeks without even turning on the computer or tv. Feel so much better now.
