    The Fugitive Lovers (1934) Robert Montgomery lost film?

    Thank you, all who replied to my Robert Montgomery "Fugitive Lovers" post. I guess I will have to wait and hope to see it soon, maybe within the next 10 years, I don't know? Thanks Again all, you guys are the best!
  2. Please Help, I've seen most of the Robert Montgomery films shown on TCM, but have never seen MGM's 1934 Film "FUGITIVE LOVERS". Starring Robert Montgomery, and Madge Evans. Is this a lost film of Montgomery's? If it isn't lost, then why isn't in any film package that MGM has? Is it possible, that MGM lost the negative, or desinagrated over time? (or I've heard a rumor for years, that MGM lost a lot of their early film negatives in a fire, during the making of the Burning of Atlanta scene in "Gone With The Wind in 1938?) I was also, told that in that scene, from "Gone With The Wind" that yo u can (If you look closely) you can see another artifact from another film, even though RKO released this film, I was told the log wall that burn and came crashing down, was that wall used in 1933's "King Kong", I don't know what to believe? I know this I can't fathom, that RKO studio , would use MGM's backlot for their production, unless Mayer leased it out? Anyway, back to the question at hand, Please let me know about this Montgomery 1934 film, I really would like to know, if it is a lost MGM film, or if it isn't I wish TCM would show it, if it is in the MGM library, Please let me know what happened to thi s Robert Montgomery film. Thanks!

    NEW HOSTS DAVE KARGER AND ALICIA MALONE...

    I would like to know, what happened to Tiffany Vazquez also? She was a pleasant host for weekend afternoon hosts. i think she was 30 something, and I thought TCM was trying to meet a younger audience to introduce them to a wide range of classic film? It's hard to know in film what a newer audience would enjoy watching on a classic film channel, like TCM, whom ever the host maybe?

    Why TCM Runs The Same Films Over And Over?

    Thank You all for responding to my topic, "Films Run Over and Over On TCM. Now I know how they do programing at TCM. Again, Thanks!
  6. Thank you all for responding to my post, due to all of your insights, I now understand why TCM does what they do to make a quality film channel. Thank You, all again , an looking to post more interesting questions being a newbie.
  7. I love TCM, but I don't understand why if TCM claims to have the definative M.G.M/U.A. film library in the U.S. then why each month, do they show the same films over and over again, like "7 Brides for 7 Brothers" or " The Harvey Girls" or "Meet Me In St. Louis". Don't get me wrong I love these films as well, but can't this channel expand to other films in their supposet vast library? How about some of these titles for a start. "Dancing Lady"(1933) Clark Gable, Joan Crawford. "The Russians Are Coming!" (1966) Alan Arkin, Carl Reiner. Or " Riff Raff" (1935) Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy, and if you have the titles just to name a few, (and I could name more good titles) why do you choose to air them 3-4-5 am. in the morning usually? I don't understand also, why TCM draws for Columbia/Sony or Universal thats owns the rights to Paramount Pictures Library, and why Disney? Again, I love TCM, but maybe I should be their researcher, Because if they claim to have Every RKO, MGM, U.A. film, then they need to up their gameif the they want to be a true classic film channel and quit renting motion pictures from other motion picture archives, unless Mr. Turner told us years earlier he bought the greatest film Library ever, then sold it toTime/Warner, then where are these classic film that they claim to have, and will we ever see them? Or will this TCM become another AMC, I Hope Not
