    The Birthday Thread

    Happy 102nd birthday to lovely Marsha Hunt, born October 17th, 1917!

    Comcast moving TCM to Sports/Entertainment Package

    I went through this same argument a few years ago when TCM was moved to the Sports/Entertainment package in my area. I told them that if I was no longer going to have access to it, and didn't even receive any "replacement channels", shouldn't my bill go down in cost? They really didn't have an answer for that and I ended up with the upgraded package to get TCM again. I Agree!
  3. I found that funny, too. It's nice to see your posts again!

    Comcast moving TCM to Sports/Entertainment Package

    I'm sorry for all the folks this is happening to. A few years ago, I had to upgrade my cable just so I could continue to receive TCM, too. If I should have to upgrade again though, I may have to reconsider going without TCM out of necessity. This would leave me feeling very sad indeed.

    The four basic story schematics.

    MONSTER (2003)
  6. It aired on Imports a few years ago. Maggie Cheung is beyond beautiful in it, too!

    That's crazy how showing something as simple as poverty within the film caused riots. I guess the Irish Freedom Committee were a sensitive group of folks?

    OK, I can't seem to figure out the association between HIT THE DECK and Eves. Am I missing the obvious, or is it not part of the theme?

    This is a really good gimmick! I know many folks reading that bit of info might just think that the theater probably didn't have many men patrons that day, but it's worth noting that in 1919, not many women or children would be seen attending a "picture show" without their husbands.

    The film doesn't show in my area until October 10th.
  13. Shirley did smoke in real life. She tried to hide her habit because she didn't want to set a bad example. She actually died of Emphysema.
  14. I'd like to see the documentary about Rod Serling, so I might attend.

    This may make me sound like a geek, but I found the Short THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TUPPERWARE fascinating!
  16. How about just bringing the 1987 film back into theaters every now and again instead? I saw it at the Fathom Events showing for the 30th anniversary and it was a full theater on a Sunday afternoon.

    I think New Year's Eve would be a perfect day to commit to all musical films. You know we don't nearly get to see MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS enough in December (joking! 😉) They could mix in some we don't get on the channel very often, like Fred Astaire's THE SKY'S THE LIMIT, or some 20th Century musicals from Don Ameche, Betty Grable and Alice Faye. They could mix them in with the usual fare we see. Then, in prime time, how about showing the musical biopics such as TIL THE CLOUDS ROLL BY, RHAPSODY IN BLUE, WORDS AND MUSIC and DEEP IN MY HEART in lieu of the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT/DANCING compilation? Of course, I love musicals, so this sounds like a good idea to me...😄
  18. I had that same thought about SOPHIE'S CHOICE.
  19. I love the film, too! Especially the dance scene "It's The Girl" with Steve Martin, Robert Fitch and one of my favorite dancers, Tommy Rall.
  20. I had thought about this, as well, after seeing the film in a theatre. Don't have an answer, but here is an interesting YouTube of someone pondering the same question:

    This is your favorite version of GASLIGHT, if I remember correctly, TopBilled? I love both versions but this one doesn't air very often, so I'm always sure to catch it!

    Silent Sundays - 2019

    Yes- he was host of Silent Sunday Nights in 1995. I would so love for him to be host again!
  23. It's about time someone named an award in Ms. Pickford's honor! She was one of the first business-savvy women of the silver screen.

    This from Wikipedia: In 1939, Hersholt helped form the Motion Picture Relief Fund to support industry employees with medical care when they were down on their luck. The fund was used to create the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California, and it led to the creation in 1956 of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, an honorary Academy Award given to an "individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry".[7]

    I wish they would have put GREED in the primetime spot. One of Hersholt's best performances, too.
