    TCM and Other Sources for Classic Film

    "Titanic" with Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb is my favorite Titanic movie.

    I Just Watched...

    "Merrily We Live" - Norman Z. McLeod - 1938 - starring Constance Bennett, Brian Aherne, Alan Mowbray, Billie Burke, Clarence Kobl, Bonita Granville, Tom Brown - Genuinely funny wacky comedy about a wealthy family that contribute to the Depression by employing hobos as butlers - in this case, a well-known novelist (Aherne) is mistaken for a hobo and is offered employment as a butler - ready for the ensuing adventure, he does his best as the butler and winds up as a beloved family member - the rich daughter (Bennett) falls in love with him, too - so does the younger daughter (Granville) and one of the maids (Patsy Kelly) - in the end, Aherne stays within the family by winning over Bennett - the only one who remains immune to his charms is the son (Brown) - this one has an extremely lively pace and involves some wonderful slapstick - all of the actors jump into it with a lot of enthusiasm - when Aherne is presumed dead, but isn't dead and seems to return "as a ghost" - the film becomes wackily inspired - one of those films that deserve a much better reputation - how did it fall between the cracks? - Â

    Favorite Playwrights

    Of William Inge's three plays that are considered "Broadway failures" - "A Loss Of Roses", "Natural Affection" and "Where's Daddy?" - these three plays are worth reading - and much better than their "reputations" would suggest.

    And, as far as 3-D goes, what is more effective than "House of Wax" in 3-D?

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion. But, for me, a teenager - a boy or girl - should not be having sex before they are barely out of puberty. I'd make the legal age of consent - at least 18.
  8. Sophia Loren in "Marriage, Italian Style" - a great, memorable performance.
  9. Thelonius Bernard became a dentist. Yet, he lives on as one of the stars of one of the sweetest movies ever made.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    I've already answered your question. At the start of the affair, she was not technically "legal".

    Tom Thumb

    I can watch him again and again - he is such a unique talent.
  12. I was waiting for her "Sweet Bird of Youth" to arrive in New York. But, unfortunately, it only made it to Chicago.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    I am not disparaging his very real talent.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    Forgive me, but while I venerate Woody Allen as an artist, he is, as he gets older, the essence of creepiness.

    Woody Allen has been shelved

    When Ms. Engelhardt started their relationship, she was not "of legal age". Yes, she initiated it, but she was only 16. He knew that she was not "legal". But a dog is a dog is a dog. He is a very complicated - but very talented - man. Whenever I see one of his films, I am astonished by his unique sensibility.
