  1. It might be qa goofy idea, but I thought it could be fun. It came to mind because in one city the name of someone who came up short in a mayoral race was named John Crawford, which started me thinking what if, in her day, Joan Crawford had run for mayor? I would suggest that her campaign motto would be to clean the town up and rid it of wire hangers to boot!

    So . . . Scotty Bowers?

    I admit that that documentary last year was a bit of a sore topic with me. If it was made up mainly of lies, then it was just a garish attempt to try to do a "tell-all" that might make Hollywood Babalon blush and spread some salacious stories that perhaps the people it was said about never would have gotten into. If it was the truth, then you have the fact that these.... goings-on.... to use a mild term, were supposed to be done in secrecy and never get out to the press, where it would destroy these peoples lives.So, if it was the truth, what they wanted to keep secret would be exposed to everyone posthumously, at a point where they couldn't say anything.....
  4. Everybody has some. And instead of doing another thread like the one involving films you dislike/hate that everybody seemingly loves, it seemed appropriate to tackle the other side of the aisle. Feel free to choose some from any era.

    Movie Blunders

    In 1982's Annie, the characters go see Camille at Radio City. The film's set in 1933, per a line of dialogue late in the film. Camille wasn't released until 1936.

    Upcoming Releases

    Another film due at some point in 2020, is a film very closely tied to one of the posters on this website....... Some other titles confirmed for Blu (and or DVD) for next year are:
  8. I remember that scene well. Such a scream. Renee Taylor was the date in that scene.

    Movies That It Sometimes Feels That Only You Alone Like?

    I've seen it. Remember being terribly disturbed by the nightmare sequence at the end (where Einstein imagines the destruction that would be caused by an atomic bomb if it hit the very room where he was). It's kind of high profile still.... The Criterion Collection gave it a luxury DVD version some years back
  10. Justice for Ida Lupino! Truly though as somnebody born in February and as a big fan of Miss Lupino I agree.
  11. February is still going to be Oscar month on TCM. It's just that for most of us diehard viewers, we will have seen most of the titles airing by now.....

    Marie Antoinette

    The Norma version does have an exceptional performance from Robert Morley as Louis XVI (his debut), and Norma's performance is good especially in the latter sequences when she's in prison. I don't remember too much about the Kirsten Dunst version. Did win an Oscar for the costumes though.

    Had another one today: The Wiz. It won me over the longer it went.

    "Movie" v "Film".

    I often use the phrase movie myself, it's what I've said since I was little and I'm used to saying it. Film, I've used that as well, but that feels more formal really, and in some ways, at least in my eyes, you need to be a bit informal when watching movies. I feel the best way to enjoy them is to just see what happens and proceed with an air of curiosity to see if the film engages your emotions or not.

    Murder, She Wrote Appreciation Thread

    There's been a lot of talk about the classic mystery series around here recently, so why not a whole thread about it Afterall, ASngela Lansbury started out in Hollywood's golden age, and many of the show's guest stars had ties to either classic Hollywood or TV. So how about it? Let's pay tribute to the series.

    If TCM did a month-long series of films about sex...

    Well if there was a way to bring fictional characters in the real world, i think i thought of the perfect host for A TCM Spotlight on this: After all, her initials spell out BED (Blanche Elizabeth Devereaux) and her home phone number is 555-3279 (EASY)

    Murder, She Wrote Appreciation Thread

    Just had to remark that one of the episodes that Hallmark aired last night has one of the most memorable villain arrests in the series. In "Portrait of Death", Jessica reveals that the killer is an escaped murderer from death row. Said killer then goes to try to kill Jessica, but is stopped as the police come right in. When they started the read the rights, the killer barks: "Forget It! I Know the Drill!"

    Martin Scorsese says Marvel movies are 'not cinema'

    Oh they are movies.... mind you I haven't seen too many superhero films though.... Superman from 1978 is still by far the best of the ones I've seen (Wonder Woman, two Batman films, Black panther). As for the Marvel films, I only saw Black Panther, and I just couldn't fully get into it. It had its striking moments, but it was a bit flat for me, and I kept waiting for something big for Angela Bassett to do. If it came to 2018 blockbusters, I preferred the non-superhero Ready Player One, which made me feel as giddy as a schoolboy.....

    Diahann Carroll Has Died

    She was exceptional in her Oscar noimnated performance in Claudine, and she also shone in two underrated titles Paris Blues and Eve's Bayou (which was added to the Library of Congress's film preservation list just this past year)

    If TCM did a month-long series of films about sex...

    BTW. Kind of approriate at the moment with this that the top three threads say "Hot! Hot! Hot!" Now to complete the picture all that's needed is some Pointer Sisters music.

    Glenda Jackson Returns

    Seems to have really tickled the Commenters at YouTube given the comment box below..... well that and a lot of people wanting to kill the Richard Benjamin and Frank Langella characters (who, if Youtube had a similar thread, seem to be near-unanimous top choices for the pitchfork treatment)

    January 2020 Schedule is Up! Patricia Neal SOTM

    If TCM did a month-long series of films about sex...

    Absolutely. Personal ranking of the nominees: Bergman, Clayburgh, Fonda, Burstyn, Page. i would have liked a Liv Ullmann nomination for that film as well. Geraldine Chaplin was riveting in Remember My Name. Fonda was just as good in Comes a horseman. And that year was strong for good female comic performances: Goldie Hawn in Foul Play, Jacqueline Bisset in Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe, Glenda Jackson in House Calls

    If TCM did a month-long series of films about sex...

    TCM certainly shows plenty of pre-codes which were suggestive, but from today's vantage point were not very explicit. But, most films from the late 60s onward that do feature such more risque scenes are usually shown late at night with only the rare exception like Hair or Reflections of a Golden Eye, both of which have played in afternoons past. Given that 8 PM films on the East Coast are at 5 PM on the West, it might prove a bit inopportune, because, though unlikely, the FCC might argue that young children might somehow be "exposed" (heh) to inappropriate material and thus veto an idea. TCM rarely has full nights of TV-MA material.

    January 2020 Schedule is Up! Patricia Neal SOTM

    I'll go out on a limb and say Night porter stays on due to it being a Criterion title. Filmstruck might not have lasted, but ever since it was founded and even after it closed, TCM and Criterion have been as thick as thieves in the TCM Imports slots.
