  1. Holy Do-over! Beatty and Dunaway to present Best Picture again?

    Kim Novak and Matthew McConaughey presented the award for Best Animated Feature to Frozen. There were some mean comments about her face looking frozen.

    Bette Davis meant the upbringing was wicked (evil), that it was wicked for parents or society to tell girls that they had to wait until marriage to have sex with someone they loved.

    Yes, wicked and stupid were the adjectives Bette Davis used for the upbringing that young women of her era were subjected to: being told that they had to wait until marriage to experience sex with someone they loved. She elaborates that there could be no marriage without sexual compatibility and that for two people to go into a marriage without knowing that was right between them was ridiculous.

    This still from the interview I mentioned in another thread. It's the interview where Bette Davis said how wicked and stupid it was for young women of her era to be brought up to wait until after marriage before having sex with someone they really loved. I agree that the entire interview is so fascinating.

    LawrenceA, I noticed that the last view movies you've posted about in this thread were from 1939. Is that just a coincidence?
  6. To Lorna

    I don't think it was Stephan55's post that caused the mods to shut down the thread. It was probably the photos. To the person who said that The Crying Game was not mentioned. Actually I did mention it.
  7. Cabaret

    On Monday February 12, TCM kicks off its prime time line-up of Best Director Oscar winners with Cabaret. In addition to Bob Fosse's Best Director win, the movie took home 7 more Oscars, including one for Liza Minnelli for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

    There is an American opera Peter Ibbetson. Deems Taylor is the composer.

    "Pardon me, are you Aaron Burr, sir?"
  10. Vintage Celebrity Scandals--How Would They Fare Today?

    Bette Davis during a interview with Dick Cavett in I think the 1970s talks about how wicked and stupid it was for young women of her era to be brought up to wait until after they were married to have sex with someone they really loved. While she was definitely in favor of marriage, she believed that there could be no marriage without sexual compatibility and that an enormous number of marriages ended in divorce because the couples went into them without knowing if the sexual connection was there.
  11. I Just Watched...

    I recently re-watched Walt Disney's The Sword in the Stone from 1963. Based on the T. H. White novel (which Disney first acquired the rights to in 1939) about the boyhood of England's legendary King Arthur, the animated fantasy features songs by the Sherman brothers. Yes, Arthur (or Wart as he's called) sounds very American, but this movie is a lot of fun. I especially love the owl Archimedes ("Who? Who? What? What?") and the magnificent, marvelous, mad, mad, mad, mad Madam Mim! My favorite part of the movie is the Wizard's Duel between Mim and Merlin, where Mim cheats, breaking her own rules.
  12. Cabaret

    Cabaret airs tonight (February 4) at 1:30 AM Eastern as part of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar. This year the 31 Days of Oscar movies are airing alphabetically so Cabaret is airing between Bullitt and Cabin In The Sky. The movie won 8 Academy Awards: Best Director (Bob Fosse) Best Actress in a Leading Role (Liza Minnelli) Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Joel Grey) Best Cinematography (Geoffrey Unsworth) Best Film Editing (David Bretherton) Best Original Song Score or Adaptation Score (Ralph Burns) Best Art Direction (Rolf Zehetbauer, Hans Jürgen Kiebach and Herbert Strabel) Best Sound (Robert Knudson and David Hildyard)
  13. TCM is changing ....

    It's Ball State University. There is no Ball University. Ugh! You've made this error before.
  14. Actress Debbie Reynolds (1932-2016)

    This is vey sad news. It seems that Debbie Reynolds' grief over the loss of her daughter was so intense, I saw Tammy and the Bachelor when it aired on TCM fairly recently. Such a wonderful movie! Maybe it's not the kind of movie that's going to change the world, but it made me very happy!
