  1. IMDb says that Laraine Day never smoked in her movies or in real life because of her Mormon faith. I've heard that Grace Kelly refused to smoke in her movies but for some reason she did in Rear Window. I wonder why.

    Hotels that carry TCM - compiling a list

    I've been to Worldmark in Indio, California lots of times and they have TCM on demand and TV. The rooms also have DVD players so you can play your own movies.

    Glenn Ford - pointing?

    Harrison Ford is an actor who points quite a lot in his movies as well and he and Glenn have the same surname. Well that's a weird coincidence.

    R.I.P. Machiko Kyo (1924-2019)

    She did an amazing job in Rashomon. I love that shot of her just sitting in the forest with her white veil. It's very beautiful.

    Best and Worst Mothers On Film

    Piper Laurie as Carrie's mother in Carrie (1976) definitely qualifies as a worst
  6. We'll never know Lillian's side of the story for obvious reasons but this sounds like what most likely happened. It's true that actors and actresses cannot afford to be very picky early on in their careers. Stardom is not achieved instaneously. Heck, Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone were both in pornos when they were first starting out.
  7. The reason is because Lillian starred in The Birth of a Nation, the most racist film ever made and I don't blame them. I'm a black person myself and I personally like Lillian Gish especially for her performances in Broken Blossoms and Orphans of the Storm but I am aware and disappointed that she starred in that film. It's extremely sad that one of the most influential films is also the most racist.
  8. My family are frequent moviegoers and usually have a good time but every once in a while... I recently went to see the new Mission Impossible movie with my family and a woman brought a toddler who was making all kinds of noise throughout the viewing. I had already seen the movie with my father and knew there was one utterance of the f-word so I immediately got worried. A full-on fight broke out when my family went to see the newest Spiderman movie when apparently someone kept kicking another person's seat and they started arguing. My brother and father immediately jumped to break it up. The people just let themslves be escorted out afterwards. No one was hurt. Fortunately it was near the end of the movie. And there was this one time when my father and I were walking out of the theater when someone threw their drink over our heads in anger at someone else. My brother told me that once when he went to a movie theater the movie stopped playing for some reason and he had to leave without finishing it. He doesn't remember what movie it was. I've always loved going to the movies and even want to work at one someday but also I have begun to understand why some people prefer to watch movies in the comfort and familarity of their own homes.

    R.I.P. Aretha Franklin (1942-2018)

    I think it's safe to assume that TCM will include her in the next TCM Remembers tribute since they did for Prince and David Bowie who also didn't act primarily and the first Blues Brothers movie is regarded as a classic though I could be wrong.

    Oscar-winning editor Anne V. Coates has died

    I actually saw this woman not too long ago in a documentary called Side by Side at my film class. She talked briefly about the famous cut in Lawrence of Arabia. Very sad.

    Men Kissing Each Other

    Peter Finch and Murray Head in Sunday Bloody Sunday. Unforgettable!
  13. That moment in the film noir Phantom Lady when Elisha Cook Jr. is playing the drums while Ella Raines watches.

    Gay Love Story Casting Call...

    Wouldn't Stagecoach be so much better if Dallas (Claire Trevor) got together with Lucy (Louise Platt) instead of brutish John Wayne (John Wayne)? They actually had decent character development and seemed to learn from each other.
