    Sorry, Snarfie, didn't get to your post 'till just now. Nicely sized -- but I want one 6 feet high, with my head put in place of Joan's. Yes, you can delete whichever you need to. Thanks again for all of the pics of my hunk boyfriend.

    Gremlin seeks DVDR advice

    Thank you, talkietime, your explanations are quite clear and helpful. The Panasonic DMR-ES35VS is the one I will be getting. A thing I never realized -- DVDs of shows are waaaay expensive! The X-Files is, well, out there! Thanks again.

    Tully Marshall? My Tully Marshall, whom I first cottoned to in Ball Of Fire?? How funny that you recognize him, jdb1. And welcome back! Still more funny -- all of the birthdays are of the 'type' that I like, a la Warren William or Basil Rathbone, tall, thin, Roman nose -- Arliss, Von Sydow and Marshall all.

    Gremlin seeks DVDR advice

    Birdy, sounds like you too are a neophyte. talkietime, can I assume that 'chasing playback' means that the Panasonic DMR-ES35V can --play DVDs, in addition to --record to DVDs from television, and --convert to DVDs from already taped VHS tapes. CNET did not give the ES35V as good a rating as the ES30V, but the ES30V is nowhere to be found. I can't find it in the writeup, but can VHS tapes also be played via this machine? Thank you.
  6. I can understand that, patful. Similar to the way Laurel and Hardy creep me out (Chaplin is completely off the radar) with their hair prickling dim-wittedness and ickiness with women. Eww.
  7. Absolutely agree about Lizabeth Scott. She is one of my film noir heroes, and I thank her most profusely for her body of work.

    FRED ASTAIRE ? OR GENE KELLY ?

    Wow, I apologize. Still doesn't sound like Fred, whom I assumed had the personality of a coat hanger. But there you go.

    "In the Spotlight"

    That was the one, thanks mongo! I remember a tall blonde coming into the asylum where Lou went by mistake, with a man ahead of her and telling Lou: --he's a pump, pump him; he's a pump, pump him. Lou: all right, I'll pump him. And the guy spits water into his face. They did the Niagara Falls sketch there too. Darn, I love vaudeville. Yes, Costello included a few folks from his movies in his television show. And who knows, they might have been in radio with him too.

    FRED ASTAIRE ? OR GENE KELLY ?

    Yup, I mentioned them a long time ago somewhere on this site. Not sure if acrobatic tap is what they did, but whatever it was, it was amazing. I was always a big fan of Hines, Hines and Dad as a yout, and loved the dancing step where the dancer leaned forward, all the while dancing like mad. Amazing men.

    Have trouble sleeping? Watch "Elephant Walk"

    I bet all kinds of elephants were harmed during the making of this film.

    And it gets worse: Breaking News >> Rat Poison Found in Tainted Pet Food http://www.foxnews.com/ So, where does a pet owner go to protest?

    How about having a "Made for tv movie day"

    Sigh, it's like talking in a vacuum. Yes, filmlover, isn't it just sometimes? There would be less meat left in this thread than a victim of the shark in Jaws. Excellent line, but those of us who hate post 1959 movies have been beaten down by those who respond to each and every posted comment and have finally convinced those of us with a brain to give up. Finally, you are quite correct. Even though I agreed that the Karen Black teevee movie was good, there is just one comment to this person: ---what part of Turner CLASSIC Movies don't you understand? There is enough crap on TCM without submerging oneself into the sewer of teevee movies. If this were to begin, can AMC be far behind? Also, you've had two requests to explain your comment. "Surely, with the limited topics TCM is facing..." but you haven't answered that yet. Yes, putzegirl5 (again, interesting name) please answer the question.

    How about having a "Made for tv movie day"

    Wow, I remember that one, thomasterryjr! That was the one where the little creature with the spear -- a stolen pagan idol of some kind? -- came to life and went after Karen, she of the spooky eyes, and killed her? Creeped me out big time. That and the episode of the Night Gallery, with my beloved Rod Serling, that starred Joan Crawford, who bought the eyes from a poor person in order to see for a night -- and that night happened to be when a blackout occurred! Waaay cool. By the way, putzegirl5 (interesting name), what did you mean by: Surely, with the limited topics TCM is facing.... ? Here? On its teevee channel? I'm curious.

    ROBERT MONTGOMERY ? OR DICK POWELL ?

    Funny, isn't it mrsl? I wonder why that is? True on Elizabeth too. Meanwhile, I just love Betty White!!! I know, apples and oranges, but I can't think of a comparable female in teevee at that time whom I really liked. Wait, I just did -- Sylvia Schnauzer!

    DICK POWELL ? OR GEORGE MURPHY ?

    Yes, the plastic ink cartridges were the latest and greatest! They replaced having to fill the pen. Still, I remember the HUGE ink blots on my papers. Ugh. I Like Ike was the man when my mother brought me home and said: someday, this little baby is going to be a real noodge on a movie message board!

    DICK POWELL ? OR GEORGE MURPHY ?

    So old that I know how to use an ink well. How cool, Dimitrios! I was there when BIC pens were invented, and had used fountain pens...ick...for all of grammar school. But how was an ink well used? Can you share?

    ROBERT MONTGOMERY ? OR DICK POWELL ?

    Hmmm, tough one. Again, I'd have to go with Dick Powell -- Robert could creep me out at times. Due to his panache with the evil role I can't name right now, I'd be afraid of waking up to him holding a knife to my throat. Oh, and old enough to know better, young enough not to care.

    DICK POWELL ? OR GEORGE MURPHY ?

    Dick Powell -- and older than dirt. George Murphy? Is he the furniture polish guy in the commercials who made furniture?

    FRED ASTAIRE ? OR GENE KELLY ?

    Fred. Although I didn't like him physically, his dancing transcended the bonds of mortal man. Gene was cuter, but was more earthy.

    Analog Television Sets Outlawed

    Maybe by that time I'll be able to afford a digital tv! Hmmm, Hibi, now I'm even more confused. Are 'they' coming out with teevees with HD built in or digital built in?

    What do you watch other than TCM?

    Bronxgirl48, I grew up in New Rochelle, which is a now a shadow of its former self, and moved to White Plains. Went to college in da Bronx, Lehman to be precise, and then Queens College, and only worked in New Yahk. I know, wasn't her apartment and wardrobe incredible. First apartment and she had a doorman! Ah, now I know the films you mean, like Sandy Dennis and Jack Lemmon in The Out Of Towners.

    Analog Television Sets Outlawed

    Hibi, I don't even have a cable box on my tv. I get the cable from...well, the cable. Since I don't plan to buy a digital box to accede to the government's collusion with mass media (free up the airwaves, yeah and Oswald acted alone), guess I'd better restock my library of books and apportion out my taped TCM movies.
