    My sentiments exactly. Loved his voice too!

    Where’s Ben?

    Alicia Malone is Introducing TCM Imports now. Perhaps Ben is doing more outside TCM stuff like Backlot appearances. Or maybe the ATT Chief has a brother-in-law!

    TCM's Saturday Matinee

    Anyone else digging this newest segment of TCM? I haven't seen any posts (or maybe missed it). Here it is again for June and I couldn't be happier! Cartoons, Shorts and B Pictures. The only thing missing is the popcorn! I'm surprised they haven't brought more attention to it. I have to admit this type of programming is totally up my alley. To me this is the very heart of what TCM is all about. Bringing the past to life for those of us who missed it and want to experience it for ourselves! Thanks TCM!!! Keep them coming.
  4. Just kidding but how many of you half-believed it?
  5. Family lore says my Great-Grandmother, who was Swedish, once tried "blanching" her granddaughter, my Great-Aunt, with bleach because as half-Italian she was very dark! Italians were not looked on very favorably when they first arrived here. You might say they were the Mexicans of their day. Fortunately no one thought of putting a wall around Ellis Island or you might not be reading this right now!

    Lackluster TCM Classic Movie News

    I turn 60 in three weeks. I am no longer desirous of purchasing anything superficial for the rest of my life. In fact I'm desirous of selling all the crap I've accumulated the past 40 years!

    Lackluster TCM Classic Movie News

    You are not alone. I have noticed this as well. I guess what it seems like to me is another push for TCM related products. Now that Filmstruck is gone those bits have obviously vanished from the News segment but Watch TCM has replaced it. As I have said elsewhere, the TCM culture has changed over the last 25 years from simply being a channel for lovers of old classic films to one of abject consumerism. If I'm wrong then the person who has the most TCM stuff doesn't win!
  8. This emailing of the guide appears to be hit or miss. Thanks in advance! Yancey

    OK, I'm back(...and where I've been)

    Sepia - Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Please let us know what her favorite film was. I'd like to watch it in her honor and send you good thoughts. Best - Yancey
  16. Is the video not visible in my first post?
  17. I know, I know every year there's always a hue and cry over people missing from the year end TCM REMEMBERS. I was very saddened to see Connie Sawyer, once the oldest living actress and a TCM Guest programmer not included. Also the lovely Mary Carlisle was missing. I'm sure there will be others but I would have thought Connie would have made it, if for nothing else, for having been a programmer. Funny to say but she would have loved it.

    TCM Remembers 2018

    We posted the same thing about the same time. Hard to believe they missed Connie and Mary.
  19. I've been enjoying the new Christmas Promos for 2018. Anyone else catch this typo? I'm surprised I saw it. Looks like a mistake I'd make!
  20. You know how you love your family but you get frustrated because you can't understand why they do the things they do?

  25. Well, if that's the case! Thanks! I saw there was going to be a tribute to the late Mary Carlisle on Nov. 15th. (Though they misspelled her last name in the little ad.) Things like that I find interesting. If I didn't see that how would I know? Plus I like to save them so I have something to refer back to if need be.
