  1. I don't care for many people & as most know that read my jazz on these boards especially the on'es still living! But immediately took to Aussie JENNA MALONE myself, how about yu folks? I have what now also be my best friend & is from Australia SUSAN MORGAN & you likely guessed it, because I can't stop thinking among other things about a certain 5'4 & fr decades 114lb BLONDE SINER-(though she doesn't like her being called singer anymore PERFORMANCE ARTIST instead, which is more of what she is to start with well, SUSAN I s owner of just 1 in a massive myriad of FB sites on her MS. CICCONE, pronounced like the A. Indian tribe CICCONE Susan even sounds like Jenna, can't stand wth a passion Karger though, knew of him for yrs he wrote foe EW mag & was pc then & only got worse. Muller is cool & once in awhile correspond with him MY VTE: Get rid of Karger & make way for either LEONARD MALTIN or 2 time Oscar contender WINONA RYDER-(l97l-) SHE FILLED IN AN ENTIRE WEEK WHEN "OSBO" WASOUT ONCE & WAS A CH-HOST ON ANOTHER WEEK, PLUS LOVES HOLLYWOODS GLORIOUS GOLDEN AGE-(circa 1925 through to about 1960-63) SO, IN CLOSING WHO ELSE THINKS JENNA IS COOL, ATTRACTING, FILM KNOWLEDGABLE & THAT ACCENT DOESN'T HURT, DES IT? thanx

    You guys still ddn't say what you think of her, especially vs Dave Karker??? Recall on a TCM IN Between focusing on her & her love of films & she showed her walk in closet-(2 sides no less) & was jam packed with vds & dvd's? At first I said SURE, that a phony back set up for the commercial, later learned more about her & I;m a cynic, but think she knows her stuff, HOW ABOUT YU SMART GUYS OUT THERE AS WEL? & IF OU EVER DO, SEE IF YOU CSN JOT DOWN HER ALL-TUME FAVS PLEASE-(my files again) I know Ben's, shirt-list of Steve McQueen & Lee Marvin his favorite actors, especially Steve! For movies an ecelectic grouping ALL ABOUT EVE, WEST SIDE STORY, BEN-HUR (l959), OUT OF SIGHT (l998) & don't have time at present again-(musta posted them 10 or more times & always included his in my books, especially if he was the author, speaking of about > RBERT OSCORNE'S

    Hope and Glory

    As for Boorman's very good (3 & 1/2) HOPE & GLORY (***1/2) As I write to a detractor of the film, to it's credit it made the BP cut of Especially considering likes of the movie year we had *LAST EMPEROR-(went 9 for 9 & very strong, but who talks about it now?) my fav of '87 by far, well close wih the magnificent Kubtick Vietnam epic FULL METAL... But, THE UNTOUCABLES I loved so much I went back to it,, something rarely do thesedays. Broadcast News I also went back to mainly because of Holly Hunter, of whom I developed a crush on & during ,y 2nd viewing of that wonfderful film! Plus, Albert Brooks breaks me up BIG-TIME! ^ & as for the $B.O.$ behemoth FATAL ATTRACTION (strong ***) & 157m for me, but didn't really deserve a BP shot vs others left out that year, most notable JOHN HUSTON-(l906-87) swan sing to both his beloved IRELAND & CINEMA THE DEAD at just 83 minutes I still think it's sheer perfection, I;m prejudice as many know due to it being IRISH & most of it cast are already gone to drink. Irish opera star Frank Patterson in a beautifully sung musical sequence, died soon After at only 58. Star Donal McCann, alcoholism & more. Not Oscar winner Anjelica Huston though & many critics were upset she was snubbed & it only got 1 nod by HOLLYWOOD for screenolay? & BE CERTAIN IF UOU EVEN WATCH IT FOR IT'S INSTANT CLASSIC GRAND FINALE BY McCann LOOKING OVER THE NIGHTIME SNOW OF IRELABD@! Book was written by James Joyce Soif I were an ACADEMY member & they are so uptight about just joining too BP contenders woulda been: *THE UNTOUCHABLES-(winner) FULL METAL JACKET, BROADCAST NEWS, THE DEAD & *LAST EMPEROR, [;us we had the instant cult flick & jut abot excellen to RAISING ARIZONA & another reason my friend most, especially nowadsydys (AREN'T YOU ALL FED UP WITH TALKING TO A MILLENIAL ABOUT SOMETING & THEY IMMEDIATELY SAY O, THAT WAS BEFORE MY TIME) FOR THOSE THAT MAY NOT KNOW MILLENNIALS ARE THOSE BORN IN '85 to date

    About a week ago I attempted-(but again this computer stopped me almost through this decade at no 4 or so I mostly compiled-(again lifted from my files) the top ten best films of each decade starting with the l980s & not only cited my top 10, but AFI;s top ten that year In short just how many great 4 star releases there are now vs then-I rated 10 new releases ****-stars for '82, now maybe one per year?) Thir state of the art & FREE from my 26 year old knowining buddy (HENRY) currently suffering from prostate CANCER! Gave me this newest computer, speakers the works & even hookedall up FREE as well, but as it gets warmer the more difficulty I seem to hsve? So, hope you true cinrphiles find it ok if & when I can list thse tip ten by decade again soon??? SO< PLEASE KEEP WORKING MCHINE I DON'T HAVE MUCH FOLKS & TO YOU, LEASE BEAR WITH ME WHEN I;M TRYING TO EITHER POST SOMETHING OR REPUU???

    Despite being shut out of those ACADEMY AWARDS-(as was his brilliant DELIVERANCE) it's still very good, though no match for the unniominated UNTOUCABLES, FULL METAL JACKET, THE DEAD & a few others that Osca

    OK Hibi, though it's far from legendary filmmaker Capra's finest hrs It's still grand filmmaking & as Maltin points out it it's ending is UNFORGETTABLE! (TRIVIA: Did you know the shot those scenes early on in an Ice Box?)
  16. I may have posed this question yrs ago, not certain, just in case ^ of course tastes change & of course again new motion pictures come out, so here goes again & to all my fellow TCMITES I post quite a number of items I truly thought would be interesting for you folks & much of the time nada even a response, let along your pix of some? 1st of I first got this one from one of my oldest movie books simply titled FILM FACTS out of NYC & all test-(out of print unfortunately now THOUGH A TIP FOR OLD BOOKS, FOR ME MOST WANTED ARE THE CITADEL FILMS OF SERIES I already own about 6 to 7 but must get & the advertised it in the back of one FILMS OF: NATALIE WOOD & MY VERY FIRST HERO & IDOL AGES 9 to 15 THE KING OF MOVIE COOL: STEVE McQUEEN & ANOTHER ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE HOPEFULLY SOME DAY ALSO ADVERTISED: FILMS OF JOHN FORD. TRY & THEY ARE STILL THERE I THINK IN PA HARVEST BOOKS don't right now to give you there # it's own the website & not FB though, matter of fact I've actually called them a couple times) I'll star the ball rolling my top 5 candidates for the all-time greatest performances of the silver-screen are>-(*always denotes an ACADEMY AWAERD (AMPAS) winner) ACTORS: It's just me I had my own rule like the OSCARS & only 1 nominee in each category, feel free to subject as many as you like though)> 1st place 0rson Welles in Citizen Kane (l94l-RKO radio)-(I know it's old, but everything in it is a revelation & still is For the record Orson lost to *Gary Cooper in Sergeant York) 2nd Spencer Tracy in Inherit the Wind (l960-UA)=(NOTE: VERY TIGHT VOTEBETWEEN HIM HERE VS HIS EPIC WORK ALL BY HIMSELF IN 19589 WB's THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA) 3rd Charles Chaplin in City Lights (l931) (UA)=(Barely over him in the equally perfecto 1936 Modern Times) 4 th *Robert De Niro in Raging Bull (l980)-(VERY CLOSE BETWEEN CHARLIE ABOVE & HIM THOUGH?) & 5th nominee Laurence 0livier in Richard III (l956)-(next time compare this to his role in his only acting statute 1948's Hamlet, which in My Alt OSCARS files, I voted for him in Hamlet-(disgustingly though defeated one of the all-time greats in The treasure of the Sierra Madre for BP Gold?)?) (TRIVIA: & fact, for those like myself that saved their old & SUPER PREMIERE mags the once conducted a survey on the single greatest performance-(by anyone) in history & the winner was: Peter 0'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia (l962-columbia)-(but los tto Peck (Atticus Finch) in To Kill a Mockingbird) AND; THE LADIES: 1st lace for & close between her & runner-up: *Meryl Streep in Sophie's Choice (l982)-(EASY PREDICTION: She'll never hit this high note again) & runner-up *Vivien Leigh in A Streetcar Named Desire (l95l WB's)=(all not are positive this role unhinged poor Vivien's mind trouble's. Jessica Tandy plated in on stage vs Brando) 3rd Greta Garbo in Camille (l937 M-G-M-(many historians cite this 1 as all-timer by an actress. Not her finest feature like Queen Christina, *Grand Hotel or Ninotchka though) 4th Maria Falconetti in The Passion of Joan of Arc (l928 French) -(don't know what the deal with w/her * the film-(silent) was with the ACADEMY that year??? Who saw this? Because as I ve written a myriad of times in depth L.B. Mayer invented them to go against labor unions & pretty much controlled winners until the mid to late '30's, 36 always rumored it's most fixed yr between Mayer & Jack L. Warner & over the grave of Thalberg) In my books a few with question always say Falconetti still delivered all-time work as an actress Ans 5th choice for me *Katharine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter-(Now I like *Streisand & in Funny Girl, but they outrageously tied for the ACADEMY AWARD that year, WHAT?) All insist due to *TRACY leaving in June of '67 *KATE & without 2nd thought, drove herself into this magnificent production (TRIVIA: To date only other tie in acting is 1931-32 *Fredric March in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde & *Wallace Beery in The Champ but, under AMPAS rules of the day it was still a tie, despite *March being 1 vote ahead of *Wally) THANK YOU & AS ALWAYS WANT YOUR INPUT
  17. (PART #1) vote a little contest & poll on here a few yrs ago, but it was only Elvis VS. *Sinatra, now I want to also add *Bing Crosby This is a kind of poll/survey & analysis on whom you fellow TCM-ITES like the most of all (3) heavyweights? PLEASE CAST YOUR RESPECTED VOTE THOUGH? I think *"The Chairman" won in that other previous topic. My vote of couragous with my #2 idol *FS!-(only after *"The Great: Spencer Tracy") Francis (Albert) Sinatra-(19l8-l998) Hgt 5'8 & 1/2. Nationality: Sicilian. In Hoboken, New Jersey. & amazingly120lbs at one time 1945's short "House Live In" (RKO), 1953's Maggio in *"From Here to Eternity"-(Columbia & competitive victory), 1970/71 Jean Hersholt award & though he didn';t win it himself his songs won 3 times "Three Coins in the Fountain" 1957's "All the Way" &'59's "High Hopes" His only other shot at *"The Golden Boy" for acting was his pick ashis best "Man With the Golden Arm" (UA) Career film spam: 1943-84) Over 200 albums & 1,800 songs! *FS has (3) WOF-STARS-(most an individual gets is (Gene Autry holds that honor) But bombed onhis short-lived tv show late '50's. won 13 GRAMMYS. (TRIVIA: He even pd anonymously for Bela Lugosi's 1956 funeral & gotthe blacklisted Lee J. Cobb back into Vegas Then, being such a loyal friend of heavyweight boxing champion: Joe Louis, he pd for his open heart surgery but Louis suffered a stroke in the middle of it! He had a pad in B. Hills area, but always lovedPalm Springs by far the most & passed away at cedars sinaiMay 14th, l998 of a heart attack. WHICH FANS CAN STAY OVER FOR A RIDICULOUS $18.OO PER NIGHT??? He was laid to rest in Palm Srings at Desert Memorial, park near his mother & father Strangely a very humble grave?> They buried him with a pk of cigs, coins in his pocket & a red scarf. & now my top 4 "Essential *FS films: *"Some Came Running" (l958-MGM), "*From Here to Eternity" "Manchurian Candidate" (l962 version) & I love 1945's "Anchors Aweigh" Tinsel Townnever looked more gorgeous!!! (HOJNORABLE MENTION: 1954's powergouse"Suddenly" He played a genuine villkiajn here & superb at it & was robbewd of another nom.) & my top (4) songs of his: 1st place "It Was A Very Good Year" (l965)(lso my fav. number by any artist) 2 "In the Wee Small Hrs of the Morning"-(his highnote post Ava years & at his pinnacle at Capitol Records)-(l958) 3. "Summer Wind" 4. "One More for the Road"-(also mid 1950's, his ultimate music era) & 5th "All the Way"-(see above) (TRIVIA: His own favorite was "My Way") Alsoi though he didn't write it, but his version of "Angel Eyes" must easily be among the most depressing songs ever!) Also his worst was "Mama Will Bark" & his "Duets" as a mess, done when he was 80 & of course his legendary "Rat Pack"-(originally called that with *Bogey, Bacall, Debbie Reynolds, Judy & others, Ithink even *Niven? At first dubbed "Holmby Hills Rat pack" because *Bogart lived in that area, then of course they consisted of *FS, Dino, Sammy, Joey Bishop & the tragic Peter Lawford LOTS MORE, BUT PLEASE CHIME-IN THIS IS ONLY PART #1

(ELVIS) was next-(P.S. He's not only my mom's fav. singer ever, but all around star!) & must admit he's my runner0up all-time fav singer. & (BING (Harry Lillis) CROSBY) was 3rd So keep yout votes coming, but in the not so far distance future I'll do a lead in on both others By the way SINATRA'S fav singers were Tony Bennett, now age 93! & Nat "King" Cole )& AN IMPORTANT QUESTION TO YOU ALL CINEPHILES> Can the opposite sex still be either your A #1 idol, or among them??? PLEASE ASSIST

LIMELIGHT (1952) (***1/2) IS AMONG YOURS THAT STANDS OUT MOST TO ME, WE SPLIT ON CHARLIE'S THOUGH 4 STAR WORK HERE VS. OTHERS HE GAVE, BUT IT HAS SUCH & DISPICABLE HISTORY AS YOU KNOW COURTESY OF THE US GOVT & THE HUAC YOU IN THE FORUMS KNOW THE ENTIRE STORY YOP, BUT JUST FOR OTHERS IN CASE THEY DON;T YET ABOUT THEN THE ACADEMY (AMPAS) TREATEST HIM -(LIKE A COMMIE, WHICH CHARLIE PRETTY MUCH WAS, BUT IN THE '50'S IT WAS VERBOETEN. IN SHORT FOR OTHERS HE COMPOSED THE SCORE FOR> LIMELIGHT INCLUDING A SONG HE CREATED & IT WAS I'LL REMEMBER YOU ETERNALLY GOT YJOD IDY DRR [BEST SCENE: SCENE WITH BOTH CHARLIE & BUSTER KEATON IN THE DRESSING RM & THEN IT KICKS IT UP A NOTCH W/THESE 2 GIANTS ON STAGE TOGETHER DOING THEIR THING!) ANYWAY. HIS SCIRE WAS 0FFICIALLY UP FOR AN OSCAR, BUT THE ACADEMY PULLED IT FROM COMPETITION-(HIGH NOON WON THAT RACE INSTEAD & I MUST AGREE EASILY AMONG THE TEN BEST IN HOLLYWOOD HISTOTY) SO WHEN HOLLYWOOD WELCOMED THE LITTLE TAMP HOME AROUND 1971 HIS 20YR OLD SCORE FINALLY WON NICE HUH, HE WAS 83 BY THEN! SP OFFICIALLY IS ONLY COMPETITIVE OSCAR VICTORIES WERE FOR IT? & WAS WWA4EDE (NON-COMPETITIVE - SPECIAL STATUETTES) FOR 1927-28'S VERY GOOD ( 3 & 1/2) THE CIRCUS-(IN MY ALTERNATE OSCARS I agree WITH IT'S AUTHOR DANNY PEARY SOMETIMES FROM IT & Charlie-(THEN STILL THE LITTLE TRAMP UNTIL MODERN TIMES ENDED & THAT WAS THE END OF THAT LEGENDARY CATEGORY IN '36m. REALITY IS HE DESERVED THAT VERY FRST BEST ACTOR ACADEMY AWARD AGAIN, L.B. MAYER RULED, ESPECIALLY VERY FIRST ONES JOERBRT & AGAIN IT TOOK HIS PEERS UNTILHE WAS 83 TO BE AWARDED LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT OSCAR IN 1972 CEREMONIES
