    Is this a serious question?
  2. I would not expect her to consider her TCM experience comparable to her Netflix Series even if she considers the TCM job a "big thing".

    Who is the Best Director of All-Time?

    No valid opinion regarding "best", but personal favorite is John Huston.

    Valerie Harper 1939-2019

    Also very funny to me was Lou Grant's reaction to Phyllis' desire to discuss the issue with him. He corners Mary and says something like "Mary, Phyllis wants to talk to me about her brother, Ben-and Rhoda. I don't wanna." Of course I sort of identified with misanthropic ole Lou.
  5. Indeed, your memory of this interview is quite famous😉

    Valerie Harper 1939-2019

    I recall those episodes involving Rhoda and Phyllis' brother as being quite funny. Phyllis is concerned that Rhoda and her brother, Ben, will become an item, even to the point of cornering Lou Grant at one of Mary's deadly dull parties to discuss her concerns. As it turns out, Phyllis did not need to worry. Ben was gay.

    I Just Watched...

    The Grey Fox is a terrific movie.
  8. I assume that when a someone posts a tweet, the poster agrees with its content. Some of the most prolific contributors to the site seem to post nothing other than tweets or other links. My only issue with that is that mentioned by Fedya. I tend to avoid the off-topic forum because it is nothing but links to biased sites.
  9. I like some Woody Allen movies (maybe most), but what I have really enjoyed over the years are the short stories he contributed to the New Yorker. I found them hilarious. See eg https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1974/12/16/the-****-of-mensa (in case not obvious, the censored word is a term for a lady of the night)

    Danny Kaye

    Danny Kaye was certainly an amazing talent. I wish I could stand to watch his movies.

    MIDNIGHT COWBOY

    I vote for both.
  12. I do not think that will alter your appraisal of her "annoyingness".
  13. Bingo (probably). I suspect that the competition in the thread about whose parents were the most parsimonious with respect to buying a color TV did not loom large in the decision.

    The Doris Day Appreciation Thread

    (wonders when Noah80 will run out of Doris Day pictures)
  15. Yeah, he is one of the reasons I did not like the movie. How could that mouth-breather be anyone's "favorite" son? Then there is that ghastly line by Hepburn with the camera zooming in for emphasis "Every family has its ups and downs".

    has anyone watched cnn's the movies

    I liked Brothers McMullen and thought Legally Blonde was quite funny. I saw Monsters, Inc thanks solely to the presence of a granddaughter in the house at the time, but really enjoyed it to my surprise. I have not seen Daughters of the Dust, but can only imagine the "that is not an essential-stop preaching to me" posts that will follow its November showing.
  17. I doubt if Ulysses (1967) has ever been shown. It is an excellent movie.

    Need help finding the name of a movie

    Good luck on your search. I have spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out the name of the movie you seek, but there is simply not enough information to generate any meaningful results via google and I have never had any luck with that IMdb search tool. As for getting a direct message to Ben, I doubt he even reads this forum.
  19. Here is one I am surprised I remember. Have not seen it for a very long time. I am not sure if it has ever been shown on TCM, but I really liked it. The Crazy Quilt (1966)

    A United Artists Retrospective Scrapbook: 1945

    1. Spellbound 2. The Story of G.I. Joe I am not part of the target audience for any of the others (well, maybe The Southerner).

    Noir Alley

    Yes, I could have just said you exchanged the character's name for the actor's name, but (fie on me) I did not notice or recall that Robert Manners was the name of the character. I googled the name because I thought it might be a pseudonym for the Barrymore boy. I claim entitlement to a "senior moment". It is not likely to be my last.

    Noir Alley

    Robert Manners? I googled the name and only came up with a Royal Navy officer who died in 1782. However, agree that John Drew Barrymore was really hammy.

    BritBox's Christie Summer Cinema series

    Amazon Prime has a lot of movies, series, etc that are free. My subscription has nothing to do with waiting for an order to arrive. It has Britbox and Acorn stuff too if you want to sign up for a 7 day free trial.

    Films of 1969

    That film generated a lot of press coverage, including a "big" article in Time Magazine, featuring Hoffman and his co-star, Mia Farrow. I recall enjoying the movie when it was first released, but have no interest in seeing it again.
