  1. #1. A Christmas Story (1983). I just love that movie, because I remember what it was like when I was a kid and I really wanted something for Christmas and got it. #2. Charlie Brown Christmas for all the reason you mentioned, bobhopefan1940 #3. Every year my Mom and I watch classic Christmas movies, Christmas in Connecticut, Miracle on 34th Street. #4. Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" #5. When my Mom was in college her apartment got robbed and they stole all her Beatles LP's. So a couple of years ago I bought them all again for her (on CD as she doesn't have a turn table anymore, but I do...go figure). That was the best gift I ever gave.

    Favorite Female performers

    IMHO, Barbara Stanwyck was, and will always be, the greatest, most talented actress to ever grace the silver screen.

    I Swoon For...

    Rudolph Valentino. Oh gods was he sexy. **fans self** Ronald Colman. He had such a sexy voice. Harrison Ford. He just has that rugged look that I can't resist. Ewan McGregor. It's the accent. I'm a complete sucker for a Scottish accent (and Australian accents too.) **rolls eyes**

    How many times have you watched?

    1. Singin' in the Rain (1952) 2. The Empire Strikes Back (1980) 3. The Thin Man (1934) 4. Aliens (1986) 5. Lilo & Stitch (2002) All more times than I can count. I mean I used to watch The Empire Strikes Back everyday when I was in high school. And when I worked at Hollywood Video I used to play Lilo & Stitch every morning, when we opened.
  5. I too wish that TCM would re-establish their weekly themes, especially "Lone Star Cinema". It was nice to know for sure that at least one musical, one western, and one film noir would be playing every week.
  6. Madeleine Carroll starred in Hitchcock's The 39 Steps (1935) with Robert Donat. She was also in The General Died at Dawn (1936) with Gary Cooper and The Prisoner of Zenda (1937) with Ronald Colman. Click Here
  7. It's almost impossible to choose just one, there are so many different kinds of beauty. So here's a few of the ones I think are the most beautiful. Of the past: Kay Francis, Audrey Hepburn, Hedy Lamarr, Greta Garbo, Marion Davies, Gloria Swanson, Gene Tierney, Rita Hayworth, Norma Shearer, Barbara Stanwyck, Ann Harding, Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Jean Harlow, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and Ginger Rogers. Of the present: Nicole Kidman (who I think is the only star in Hollywood today that has any class), Julia Roberts, Kiera Knightley, Natalie Portman, Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Renee Zellweger, Jodie Foster, and Cher (even though she's not wholely an actress).

    The Best Film Youve Ever Seen

    Singin' in the Rain (1952), not only great as a musical (perhaps the greatest musical of all time), but also as a comedy.

    Red Sonja **blush**

    Your Favorite Mann - Stewart Film

    I think The Man From Laramie is my favorite.
  11. I would love to see Marion Davies (as many of her silent films are still intact) Norma Shearer (ditto) and Kay Francis as the SOTM.
  12. Tired of all these "greatest" movies ever made lists, us posters over on the Golden Age of Hollywood site decided to vote our own list. Here's the top ten: 10. All About Eve 9. Some Like it Hot 8. The Passion of Joan of Arc 7. Singin' in the Rain 6. Sunset Boulevard 5. The Maltese Falcon 4. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre 3. M 2. City Lights 1. North by Northwest

    Pre-Codes, If You Please

    All you fellow pre-code fans will be pleased to know that in December TCM will be showing (for the first time to my knowledge) Waterloo Bridge (1930) with Mae Clarke. Woo Hoo! Also Ann Vickers (1933), which I've never seen and have wanted to for a long time (I love Irene Dunne), and Mandalay (1934) in October, which the last time TCM showed it my cable went out.
