    Hubert de Givenchy has died

    I'm sorry to hear of Hubert De Givenchy's passing. I like his fragrances and clothing line. Coco Chanel created the little black dress, but the dress that Givenchy designed for Audrey Heburn is one of the most iconic items of clothing in history.

    "Fred" Hitchcock?

    A short form of "Alfred" is Fred. Alfred Hitchcock probably didn't mind being called Fred. He had a thing for some of the female actresses in his movies.
  3. I was the creator and administrator of a Q&A site for years. It had a diverse group of over 80,000 members. I also experienced spambots and I found a way to block them from registering accounts on my site. I had to give up my site because I was busy with life and had a packed schedule. I noticed that a Korean spambot program has been hitting the TCM forums in full force. It's not easy for the administrator/moderator to keep an eye on all of the activities and deal with the relentless bots. It seems like this specific spambot is designed to send spam automatically in large quantities. The sign up/registration form on the TCM forums needs to be updated. It's easy for spambots to bypass the reCaptcha. It asks users to do simple math problems and answer simple questions. The administrator can set a verification code that users have to decipher in order to complete the registration.This will make it harder for bots to bypass the reCaptcha but easy to solve for a human. And try to implement characteristic verification questions. Another option is to enable the spam filter and monitor the newly registered members. If there's an account activation in the ACP, the administrator can manually approve new members when they join, and then keep spam accounts on pending or banned. Hopefully, TCM will update their spam filter.

    Petite Feet

    I'm 5'2, a size 2 in clothes and I'm 5.5 in shoes, but sometimes I wear a 6 in shoes. I usually wear 2 or 3 inches heels that makes me taller. If I go 4 inches in heels, it would be physically impossible for me to walk in them without falling. I'm 40-years-old, however people say I look like I'm in my late 20's. It might be because I'm petite, or it could be my family genes.

    They don't need to insult Trump. Trump is doing a good job making an **** of himself.

    NEW HOSTS DAVE KARGER AND ALICIA MALONE...

    Dave Karger is definitely qualified to be a host, but I find him a little boring. He's slowly starting grow on me. I don't know who Alicia Malone is. We need a female host, so I wish her well. Good luck to both of them.
  7. Robert Wagner can speak to investigators with his lawyer present. But he chose to remain silent. He will remain a person of interest in this case.
  8. I tried to post my reply, but my post didn't appear. Perhaps there was a temporary glitch. Now it's working, lol.
  9. The L.A.County Sheriff's Department reopened the case after Davern came forward with new information. They hooked him up the a polygraph and he passed with flying colors. Investigators believe that Natalie Wood's death is suspicious, and they want to question Robert Wagner. But Robert Wagner has declined to speak to them. He should come forward and speak to them if he has nothing to hide. Christopher Walken has spoken with investigators.
  10. We will never know what really happened to Natalie Wood. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning at the time. But now, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reopened the case, and the cause of death on her death certificate was changed to "drowning and other undetermined factors." The captain of the Splendour, Davern stated he had been coerced by Robert Wagner to keep quiet because he was his boss. Davern made a new statement that there had been tension between Wagner and Wood because of Walken. According to Davern, Robert Wagner snapped at Christopher Walken and Natalie Wood over their relationship. Davern took a polygraph test and passed. Robert Wagner is now a person of interest in Natalie Wood's death. However, the sheriff's department has not questioned him yet regarding the new claims. I think they should give Robert Wagner a polygraph test over his account of the incident. If he passes the polygraph test, they should close the case and let Natalie Wood rest in peace.
  11. Nobody knows exactly what happened. Many believe that Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood got into a fight the night of her death. It was reported by eyewitnesses that they were drunk before and after the dinner. And Robert Wagner spent an hour or so drinking scotch by himself. Robert Wagner also wrote in his memoir that after a night of drinking, he got in a heated argument with Christopher Walken over Natalie Wood's career. People become confrontational and hostile when drunk.

    I'm pretty sure he saw "Warlock."

    TCM Hosts

    I'm a fan of TCM. I hadn't yet been born when these movies came out, but I enjoy watching them. I think Robert Osborne was a wonderful host. I miss him. Ben mankiewicz is also an outstanding host. I was wondering why they let Tiffany Vazquez go. I heard that they didn't renew her contract. She looked a little nervous at first, however she started to strive. She even lost weight. I wish her all the best. There's a new guy hosting during the day on Saturdays.

    TCM Hosts

    I was being sarcastic. My dad is retired and living a peaceful life. He tries to get in a walk every day to stay healthy. The weather is still chilly here on the east coast, so he can't walk too long outside. He's looking forward to Spring and working on his garden. I go with him to get plants and flowers for the yard every Spring. He does spend time watching classic movies/westerns and reminisce about the good old days.
  15. Fox News and their co-hosts will defend Trump until hell freezes over.

    TCM Hosts

    My dad would be a great candidate for hosting classic western movies, lol. He loves watching western movies. I didn't know much about Clint Walker or Audie Murphy until I heard him talking about them. He told me when he was a young boy that he and his friends would go to the theater to watch western movies. He watches his westerns on the Starz Encore channel now. I'll let him know when there's a good western on TCM.

    Something for Haruo Nakajima

    Hauro Nakajima was a great Godzilla. This is a nice tribute. There are so many Godzilla movies. Godzilla's body has gotten bigger in the newer CGI movies. I think there's going to be a remake of Godzilla vs. King Kong in 2020. I enjoy a good Godzilla movie every now and then.

    TCM Hosts

    Doris Day has been out of the spotlight for so long. It doesn't seem like she's interested in appearing on TCM anytime soon. She spends much of her time helping animals.

    TCM Hosts

    Yes. Doris Day is still energetic and active. Good for her.

    I like the soundtracks from the Graduate, Saturday Night Fever, The last American Virgin, Purple Rain, and Singles.

    TCM Hosts

    I would like to see Christopher Plummer, Sidney Poitier and Margaret O' Brien guest host on TCM. She was in one of my favorite movies, Meet Me in St. Louis.

    TCM Hosts

    While most of them are now gone, there are some who are still alive and kicking, such as Christopher Plummer, Sidney Poitier, Vera Lynn, Carol Channing. It goes on and on. Kirk Douglas, Vera Lynn, Olivia de Havilland, and Eva Marie Saint might be the oldest surviving stars.

    TCM Hosts

    It would be nice to see some veteran actors/actresses from the golden age guest host on TCM.

    Pregnancy in classic movies

    Father's Little Dividend, a sequel to Father of the Bride revolves around pregnancy and having a baby. It was considered controversial for the 1950's.

    TCM Hosts

    Tiffany Vazquez looked really nervous and uncomfortable when she first started hosting TCM. But as time went by, she found herself. She became confident and spoke eloquently. She also lost weight and dressed nicer. It's too bad that some people didn't like her.
