    Misleading Titles

    A few years ago there was a movie called A Haunting In Connecticut 2 Ghosts Of Georgia. Obviously, producers failed geography class.
  2. Gish being one of my idols, I reached out to the Dean of this University and offered to purchase the memorabilia they have of the Gish sisters. The Dean informed me that although the name is being removed off the theater the entire contents of the theater devoted to the Gish sisters will remain on display. The trouble with journalism today is you only hear what they want you to hear.
  3. How about someone like Donald Sutherland instead?
  4. Anytime you let the misguided and often amateur opinions of a paying public dictate how your website runs there will always be a problem. Case in point, the very overrated film The Shawshank Redemption is the number one movie on IMDB. I wouldn’t put Shawshank in the top 250 movies let alone number one. How many of these people who voted for that have ever seen a foreign film, silent film or for that matter a black and white film?
  5. Spence, I don’t care what these people do in their private life as I am judging them by their work on screen. If this was the case I wouldn’t be one of the biggest William Haines and Ramon Novarro fans out there. My problem with Woody is he just isn’t funny in my opinion. He literally bring Catskills old Jewish Jackie Vernon humor to his motion pictures. At a time in the 60’s when Lenny Bruce was pushing the envelope of comedy Woody was perfecting his lame Jewish nerd comedy which quite frankly I never got until Jerry Seinfeld perfected it in the 80’s.

    R.I.P. Rudy Behlmer (1926-2019)

    I appreciated his commentary on DVD extras but if you wanted the absolute bare minimum commentary talk he was the guy for it. I always wanted Rudy to bring something fresh to his commentary especially for the Warner Brothers classics but he never did. I still memorialize him as being someone that made me actually want to listen to DVD commentary.

    Does anyone remember Mongo on these forums?

    Mongo was a great guy, I go back with him to when the TCM boards first started. I can still find my my original username on like page 1040 of the message board archive and cherish the great talk we all had back than about classic movies. Incidentally, does anybody from back in the day remember the user leobertucelli? He was a real character.
  8. Count me in as also not being a fan of the films she picks for essentials. I think we have a case of an individual who has the memories of seeing these films in a setting of say a liberal arts class and cherishing those memories of the class more than the films themselves. Let’s face it some of these films are real junk. Just my theory, considering her political views in her personal life.

    Classic World War 2 movies - chronologically

    Objective Burma, I believe deals with 1943. Definitely one of WW2 best war movies.

    R.I.P. Ric Ocasek

    The last thing I wanna do is be a jerk but what does this man have to do with classic movies? I think this board has become a race to see who can post a celebrity death fastest. I’m not sure I would go on a Classic Rock message board and post that Gerard Depardieu died (by the way he is still alive).

    TCM names new host for Silent Sundays

    The new Silent Sunday montage opening has been changed and leaves a lot to be desired. Why can’t they go back to the original one they had years ago that was poetry. I wasn’t a big fan of the most recent one that has been around for a few years but it was better than this new one. Also, the new host needs to loosen up a bit and relax while doing the intros. It seemed like she was a deer caught in the headlights but I suppose time and practice will fix that hopefully.

    Who is the Best Director of All-Time?

    Yep, located in the first state Delaware. Also, to answer your post my vote goes to D.W. Griffith, despite my user name devoted to King Vidor who I believe is runner up. Griffith just innovated everything and it’s a real shame that people only think of him for The Birth Of A Nation and think he is some type of racist. My vote for international director goes to Jean Renoir, who directed films as beautifully as his father painted portraits.
