  1. I have little recollection of seeing (or not seeing for a terribly long time anyway): "The Petrified Forest", "They Made Me A Criminal", "Dead End", "City For Conquest" and "The Grapes of Wrath". Zea

    My bad & a big "Duh!" for not reading the entire topic line. With much thanks to starliteyes for the correction, I submit: Florence Fair was in "Man of Iron" with Dorothy Peterson.

  6. Good News: Finally TCM will air Holiday Inn Monday. Making it just under the holiday-wire. Bad News: It's on at 8:30am EST! Any late night/early morning NYE revelers best set their DVR to record it. Otherwise viewing it will be relegated to OnDemand on your hand-held devices or laptop screens. Why such a ridiculous programing time? And I'll wager this'll be a one-time only showing. Other holiday movies on TCM have been aired to death this past month or so. Is Holiday Inn such a pariah? Or is it because it's a one-time lend lease from another rights'-holding venue? Come on, TCM, even if some folks are up that early to watch it live, after an overabundance of NYE partying, they may not FEEL very much alive to enjoy it. Zea

    2017 In Memoriam programming

    I will miss Powers Boothe. Ever since I first saw him in the tv mini series about Rev. Jim Jones, I was mesmerized. Whether portraying a good guy (rarely) or bad, he exuded a certain kind of sexuality that evoked a little heat under the collar so to speak. That kind of on screen sexuality hasn't been seen or felt since Stuart Whitman. Woof! Zea

    Any Love For Ann Margaret?

    I know this topic is a bit old. Although I admit to not being a great fan of Ann Margaret, I think the best performance she ever gave was in "Carnal Knowledge". She played completely against type. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I enjoyed her so much in it. Scenes between her and Jack Nicholson were incredible. The one and only time I ever really was mesmerized by the depth of her portrayal in a film. I also commend her devotion to her husband & manager, Roger Smith, who struggled w/Parkinson's Disease and only recently passed this year. Zea

    Rhyming Clue

    Guess I may have made this a bit obscure. Giving it another shot. The movie was a comedy from the 40's. The "rhyming clue" was kind of a nursery rhyme that revealed a clue to a hidden treasure. The male lead was a major star; the female lead - not so much. Zea

    Rhyming Clue

    OK, this is a loaded one. But one that's probably a piece of cake for most members here. What was the rhyming clue in what movie with what male & female leads? Zea

    INABILITY TO WATCH ONLINE

    Appreciate your response and action. As of this a.m. I was FINALLY able to cue up an OnDemand movie. (BTW: The "Watch Live" films were, strangely, always viewable. Go figure.) My sense is since this issue has happened repeatedly in the past and ultimately, inexplicably resolved itself within a few days, it will happen again. Sadly, in light of this, cueing up any OnDemand films in the future will continue to provoke some anxiety. Was wondering if those others who responded to this thread are also able to view movies now?

    SO BAD IT'S GOOD

    DYK: Judy Garland was originally cast as Helen Lawson. Judy left due to personality conflicts. (AKA: Judy thought the role was crap & let everyone know it. Consequently, she was treated shabbily by production staff, et.al. motivating her to quit.) Just as well. Judy might have made Lawson more believable. Hayward hammed it up just enough to make it campy. Hayward did have a tendency to play every role in her later career as if it was "I Want To Live II". Zea

    SO BAD IT'S GOOD

    If this topic has already been discussed, forgive me. Just point me toward its previous incarnation and I'll delete this one. If not...then in light of the recent showings of so many Lana Turner schmaltzy movies, got to thinking about my all time favorite 'so bad it's good' films. I KNOW there are others in my HokeyHitList, but first and foremost in my mind is: "VALLEY OF THE DOLLS" Patty Duke is as pricelessly over the top as Barbara Parkins is ba-a-a-d. While my heart bled for the great Lee Grant having to be a part of all that hokem, I roared w/the thunderous approval of all the transvestite performer/impersonators out there for the great, 'wigged' Susan Hayward. A general, gigantic hoot all around, friends & I used to gather for annual "VOTD" parties and sync dialog & sing alongs w/Neely. Good times! Zea

    INABILITY TO WATCH ONLINE

    Having to watch classic movies, which to TCM, its viewers & me, are The Holy Grail of movies in general, on any small/tiny screen device is (IMO) sacrilegious. It simply doesn't do these treasures justice. Sure if there's absolutely no other way for someone to catch a movie they really want to see, then go for it. But if given the option, I'd much prefer to view these on demand movies on at least a 12" screen. Again, the fact that these problems are occurring across the board of internet providers, devices & browsers reaffirms to me that the problem lies w/TCM. They make such a big deal out of how much they 'owe' to the loyalty of their subscribers & viewers. Well......how about stop blaming everything & everyone else for the glitch and step up to the plate. If it's in TCM's ballpark, then they should take responsibility and fix the darn thing. Certainly stop sloughing off as if it doesn't matter. It does! Zea
