  1. Lynn, Congratulations. I just took a second look at your schedule. I like you included one of my favorite movies (Torrid Zone) and highlighted one of my favorite performers (Ann Sheridan) and I should be getting one of your movie picks tomorrow from Netflix (Hangover Square). Also, I gave my mom my Tyrone Power dvd box set a couple of months ago. Last Sunday, I wanted to watch Blood and Sand, but I would have had to drive three hours to see the thing. I like Tyrone Power, but not six hours driving. So, I think tcmprogrammer should schedule some of the Fox items you programmed. Rusty
  2. Favorite Movies with a Great Soundtrack

    The Red House (1947). Spooky Mikl?s R?zsa score...sets the mood of this movie just right. The Killing Fields (1984). Mike Oldfield's score is unusual and remains stuck in my brain. The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) Bernard Herrmann's best score. The music Herrmann wrote for "Lucy Muir sees the house for the first time" scene is...ahem, genius. Rusty
  3. Hello, I would really like to see that Asta Nielsen "Hamlet" (1920?). So, I vote for Norma Desmond. Rusty
  4. Best Actor of the 20th Century

    Hello Matt, Long time no...hmm, like two ships passing in the night. Slow, slow boats. Tramp steamers. Leaky rust bucket...well, you get the idea. Break time's over. I must get back to thinking about who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong. I think its the same guy who put the dip in the dip dee dip dee dip. Later. Rusty
  5. Best Actor of the 20th Century

    Marlon Brando. When I heard Brando say , "man, you are too square"...I realized I+ was too square. That movie moment changed my life. Brando is good+. Rusty
  6. Kyle and Lynn, Thank you for the welcome. I know this is a little off topic, but I thought I would explain my lack of participation regarding TCM forums. I've been so busy practicing dorodango, I hardly have time to eat or relieve myself...forget about internet participation. I'm almost dorodango daffy. Dorodango is making shiny balls out of mud.

  7. Most Frightening Villain Of All, Ever

    If looks could kill...Jack Nicholson as "Jack Torrance" in The Shining (1980). I have a personal connection with Nicholson's Jack Torrance character. A few years ago, when my week always included "hangover Saturday" and one or more freshly scrubbed Jehovah Witness/LDS teens rang my doorbell at eight o'clock in the morning and I answered the door and I looked at who was on my doorstep and evil thoughts seized my concious...well, I'm sure that to those young folks, I must have looked just like Jack Torrance after his possession by the Overlook hotel's bad spirits. I know I looked something like Jack Torrance in The Shining because those young doorbell ringers would just throw their Watchtower or Book of Mormon at me and run away. Rusty
  8. Most Frightening Villain Of All, Ever

    Patty McCormack as "Rhoda Penmark" in The Bad Seed (1956). I watched The Bad Seed the last time TCM broadcast the thing. Patty McCormack's performance convinced me Patty person MUST be evil. However, I recently watched Patty McCormack play a telepathic teenager in the One Step Beyond episode..."Make Me Not A Witch" (1959). Patty McCormack was just as nice as could be and I decided Patty was just acting when she did the Rhoda role. Rusty
  9. Oh boy. I want TCM to broadcast that movie where the masked wrestler dons taloned gloves and fights a gang of evil disciplinarians..."Santo's Claws Conquers The Martinets". Rusty
  10. Johnny Got His Gun (1971)

    Hello, My brother was involved with the anti-war movement during the late 1960s, early 1970s. He had a library of anti-war books...including the paperback edition of Johnny Got His Gun. I picked the book up and read the story in one sitting. I was thirteen or fourteen years old. The story has haunted me ever since. I mean, the story has really stayed with me ever since...just writing about Johnny Got His Gun forcefully reminds me of the experience of reading the novel. Now, I have not watched the movie...Johnny Got His Gun (1971). I don't know how the first half of the book could work as a movie. I don't think I am providing any spoilers, but I'm talking about the part of the novel having the protagonist discover his physical condition. Anyway, I plan to record the TCM broadcast of Johnny Got His Gun and I will watch the movie when I am mentally prepared for the experience. Not a "while away a couple of hours" sort of story. Arkadin...thanks for the mention of the upcoming broadcast of Johnny Got His Gun on TCM. Rusty
  11. Quotes YOU Use.

    I wish I hung out with a literary crowd. I KNOW the subject of poetry would come up at some time and somebody would ask me, "Rusty...have you a favorite poem?" I would reply, "why YES...I DO have a favorite poem!" I would immediately recite "Pointy Birds"...a poem by Steve Martin as presented in his movie The Man With Two Brains. Ahem... O pointy birds, o pointy pointy, Anoint my head, anointy-nointy. Of course, after reciting "Pointy Birds"...I would have to find a new crowd. Rusty
  12. Hello. Lately, I've been watching a lot of Monogram Pictures Company pictures...Sidney Toler's Charlie Chans and the very good film...Dillinger (1945) and some other Monogram stuff. So, I'll vote for a heaping plate of Sheffield...MattHelm. Rusty
  13. What was the best prop in a movie? TIE BREAKER!

    Hello, The globetrotting gnome from Le Fabuleux Destin d'Am?lie Poulain (2001). The Sparks-Marx (Ned, Groucho) cigar. The "nose lifter upper" from You're Telling Me (1934). Rusty
  14. Hello, To all programming challenge participants...great job! I hope TCM programming department takes note of Filmlover's American Film Theater thing. I vote for Fredmill's schedule...Chester Morris! Of course! Rusty
  15. Totally OBSCURE Movies - Films that NOBODY Has Seen!

    Anybody remember this movie? The Little Prince And The Eight Headed Dragon (Wanpaku ?ji no orochi taiji...1963). This "nobody" remembers Japanese animated feature...after forty five years...and lots of intemperate living. Rusty
