  1. Carol Burnett is a national treasure but is also in her 80’s. It’s just my opinion but to be a little generous I think she should get a little slack as far as participating in the discussion and having to remember everything about every star. It’s a coup just for Ileana to get her for this showcase. This is just an opinion.

    25th Anniversary Cruise Announced

    It’s on the TCM Cruise website. I booked on Monday.

    R.I.P. Janet

    Hibi I’m sorry about your loss. I remember the name but I guess I never interacted with her. I hope her family finds peace.
  4. I heard “Runaway” from 1978 today on the radio. One of Jefferson Starship’s lesser hits but still a great song. He had a memorable voice.

    December 2018 Schedule is up

    It’s really just a low rent Saturday Night Fever but the song “Last Dance” really is a pretty good song.

    To Those About to Die, We Salute You!

    What about Jimmy Durante in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. He literally kicks the bucket. Probably the only time I laughed during that movie.

    What Current Big Stars Will Be Forgotten?

    Spielberg? No he’s made too many touchstone films, whether you like it or not. I will say Francis Ford Coppola though, and he directed two of my top five favorite films. He’s just not that prolific. Actors? Maybe Goldie Hawn. She was everywhere in the 70’s & 80’s but just quit working. Kevin Costner was huge in the 80’s & 90’s but seems forgotten now (I know he still makes films but is low profile.)
  8. TCM has announced a new cruise October 22-27, 2019 from NYC to Bermuda on the Disney Magic. Preregistration starts today. I’m so going!

    Spotlight: The Black Experience in Film

    I loved Bird. I didn’t see it until a couple of years ago but Whitaker was fabulous. Easily one of Eastwood’s better efforts and criminally underrated.

    She’s is my absolute favorite. I might have to get that book.

    lust for life

    But Douglas could underplay it when necessary, like in Seven Days in May. His character requires discretion & calm and he does fantastically. Frankenheimer does a great job with the entire cast.
  12. As I stated in my previous post, I think she has probably been offered a Kennedy Center Honor or other national honors and has turned them down in the most polite way possible. I mean, I don’t know her or anything but an artist of her stature hasn’t been snubbed. I’m sure she has her reasons.

    Burt Reynolds (1936-2018)

    I saw him talking about his finances on some show. I wish I could remember but my faulty memory seems to recall that he made a lot of bad investments and bought a lot of things he regretted. Then, I guess he didn’t work for a while and maintenance of his properties/investments took a lot of his money. I think it was a few years ago when he was selling all of his assets except his home in Florida. Now that I think about it a little more, I may have read it instead of seeing an interview. I’ll try to find it. ETA: it’s an interview by Ned Zeman in Vanity Fair November 2015.
  14. I don’t know about Ullman & Von Sydow, but I’ll bet Doris Day has been offered all kinds of lifetime achievement awards from every organization imaginable but has been reluctant to appear in public for 30 plus years. And most of these organizations want the recipient to show up if they’re giving them an award.

    Spotlight: The Black Experience in Film

    That dance number is amazing. Last year I was obsessed with it and watched it at least once a week and then watched everything I could find on the Nicholas Brothers on the internet. Underrated and under utilized talents.
