    The Virgin Spring (1960)

    One of my favorites too. I rate it a sold 10.

    It's just for Oscar month, won't it be back in March? Plus it gives the guy (sorry, forgot his name) time to research and track down more films and me a chance to actually watch the ones taped to my DVR. Meantime read some of the stories and books the films were based on? Plus, if you look at the upcoming schedule there are film noirs throughout, just not at the times we're accustomed to and without the appropriate introductions and epilogues.
  3. Dear TCM, Thank you for airing these genius vintage films -- they are the history of the films we treaasure today. I wiish you would air them regularly. Late Friday nights, maybe? Sunday nights! Awful! I had to rearrange my entire DVR to fit them all in. But I'm sure they'll be worth it. Anything by a Fleischer brother is. Thanks, Arlene Herring, Brooklyn, NY

  5. I asked TCM to show it...
  6. Thank you! I found the title at IMDB yesterday, after scrolling through pages of 'Nazi' keyworded titles. But I didn't know the details about the editions, always wanted to. Discovered yesterday it was released on DVD as part of a Great WWII Movie DVD package, and I can Netflix it.
  7. I'm trying to find the title of a black and white movie about a village in Eastern Europe under attack by Nazi planes during WWII. Eventually they get occupied by Nazis. This movie had a Nazi performing medical experiments on the village children. It used to be aired on PBS stations in the 1970s and 1980s. The NY Times would always say it had been heavily edited. I think it was made in the 1930s or 1940s. I thought the title included the words night and stars but all keyword searches have come up empty. It is not the great Italian movie 'Night of the Shooting Stars'. Anyone out there remember? Thank you. -- Arlene Herring
  8. Well, guess what? IMDB says this movie was released on DVD in 1998! So -- TCM, please get hold of a copy and air it! Thank you, Arlene Herring ekelks@msn.com
  9. http://tcmdb.com/title/title.jsp?scarlettTitleId=69043 here's the link, I hope. David Lean directed. Noel Coward wrote the play, the screenplay too, I think...
  10. Check it out: search TCM for "Bithe Spirit," that gorgeous Noel Coward movie with Rex Harrison and other greats, and you'll be asked to add your vote to a petition to get the classic movie studios to transfer it from video to DVD format, or is it just to video? Either way, please do this: the funniest, most enchanting love/ghost story ever, and the color! I'll come back with a link.

    Lost movie The blue rose

    I also remember seeing a movie called 'The Blue Rose' when I was younger and it was NOT 'The Thief of Baghdad' -- similar, but definitely not a movie with John Justin. Lost is the right adjective for this one.
  12. I think that it was the 22nd you're remembering, and Sabotage Agent is probably the title, though Saboteur played right before that one. The whole day was full of WWI and WWII espionage movies: 22 Tuesday 6:00 AM Mata Hari (1931) Romantic biography of World War I's notorious lady spy. Greta Garbo, Ramon Novarro, Lionel Barrymore. D: George Fitzmaurice. BW 89m. CC 7:30 AM Stamboul Quest (1934) A notorious enemy spy falls for an American medical student during World War I. Myrna Loy, George Brent, Lionel Atwill. D: Sam Wood. BW 86m. CC 9:00 AM Espionage Agent (1939) American spies try to steal Nazi secrets from a moving train. Joel McCrea, Brenda Marshall, George Bancroft. D: Lloyd Bacon. BW 83m. CC 10:30 AM Above Suspicion (1943) A honeymooning couple are asked to spy on the Nazis in pre-war Europe. Fred MacMurray, Joan Crawford, Conrad Veidt. D: Richard Thorpe. BW 91m. CC DVS 12:00 PM Saboteur (1942) A young man accused of sabotage goes on the lam to prove his innocence. Robert Cummings, Priscilla Lane, Norman Lloyd. D: Alfred Hitchcock. BW 109m. CC 2:00 PM Sabotage Agent (1943) An undercover agent battles Nazis to save an aviation plant. Robert Donat, Anthony Eustrel, Valerie Hobson. D: Harold S. Bucquet. BW 111m. 4:00 PM Notorious (1946) A U.S. agent recruits a German expatriate to infiltrate a Nazi spy ring in Brazil. Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains. D: Alfred Hitchcock. BW 101m. CC 4:00 PM Watch On The Rhine (1943) Nazi agents pursue a German freedom-fighter and his family to Washington. Bette Davis, Paul Lukas, Lucile Watson. D: Herman Shumlin. BW 112m. CC On the 19th you may have seen Hitchcock's first version of The Man Who Knew Too Much (the black and white one). If I were you I'd now go hunt the title down at http://IMDB.com. Free if you're careful not to register for the extra stuff (for agents and actors, I guess). You should subscribe over the computer to the monthly schedule and save it so you won't go crazy -- how I had this info... So, hopefully, you'll figure out which title it was and ask TCM to remind you the next time it plays -- and let us know too?
