    Actor Richard Erdman 1925-2019)

    He’s one of those people who seemed to be in everything when I was a kid. Sorry to hear about his passing.

    The Real Great Escape - 75th Anniversary

    That’s what I thought too. I didn’t remember being like 90 years old but I do feel like that age from time to time.

    Ben is hosting along with each of these men.

    25th Anniversary Cruise Announced

    I enjoy the cruises but I’m not about to spend $7000 + airfare to go to Alaska for the TCM cruise. Alaska cruises are typically port intensive and all about enjoying the scenery and nature. Honestly these types of cruises need to be more boring itineraries. If they don’t want to do cruises from the east coast of Florida then they could leave from Puerto Rico and do more Southern Caribbean routes.
  6. 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!

    New Poll: Favorite Male Screen Star

    That’s quite a list, but how could you possibly omit John Goodman?

    ken berry dead at 85

    Wasn’t Jackie one of the founding members of the First Wives Club? Ken has been out of the spotlight for a while so when he died this weekend, the first thing I thought was about that fact. I liked him well enough but I imagine when his star was rising he wasn’t the best husband.

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    Yes, that’s it. I found it fascinating that each actress was playing a part that the other would normally play. It’s like they got the script and switched the parts they were assigned to play. I’ve only seen it once but I remember that I didn’t mind it. I’m like you though. I’m a fan of Allyson but Grayson not so much.

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    Two Girls from Boston her singing is kept to a minimum even though it’s about a girl who is trying to get in with an opera company and her sister. She’s at least a little interesting in that one.

    Welcome back, Clare

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who dislikes those siblings in the wine club ad, at least the woman. The guy hardly says anything but I had begun to mute or change the channel when it came on.

    January 2019 Schedule Up!! SOTM Kathryn Grayson

    Man on a Tightrope shows up on FXM occasionally and it’s definitely a good movie albeit a product of the era of the Cold War part 1. Moore is the ingenue of the piece, but it has an interesting cast. It’s based on a true story. I recommend it.
  14. You may think you know about the Wagners but you just know a bunch of junk gossip you read on the internet. Like I said, it’s not anybody’s business what Robert Wagner and his family want regarding her gravesite.
  15. She’s his late wife and he (and I’m sure their daughters) wanted this. It’s not about you or anyone else.
  16. It worked for Tiffany Vazquez, even though she only kept the job for a little while. When they had the fan programmers the first time on the 10th anniversary, there were at least half of them from regular posters on these boards. But there was no contest; someone in the TCM HQ decided to choose a few people who posted here. None of those people are around here much anymore though.
  17. 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.
  20. 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.)

    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.
