    Our Members Tributes to Robert Osborne (1932-2017)

    What a wonderful idea. I'm sure TCM knows how devoted Robert's fans are. I never thought I could love someone whom I've never met. I feel as though my best friend is gone. We've spent a lot of time together over the years. I love his interviews, especially the one with Robert Mitchum ,when he decided to clam up. Robert took it with his usual aplomb. I'm sorry I never met him or went to the festivals. I'd always say, "Next year."

    Who do you share a birthday with?

    Angelina Jolie, if you can believe that. It proves that astrology is silly.

    Movie title.Need help

    Thanks, for the memory jog. I love this film.
  4. You have to give her credit--she had a long career, despite the fact that she could not sing and she had trouble with her "r's." I love _Blue Angel_, regardless.
  5. I am confusing two of my favorite films. One is THE DEVIL AT FOUR O'CLOCK, in which three desperate men, including Sinatra, end up helping Spencer Tracey rescue children from a threatening volcano. I remember another film in which a plane has crashed on a mountain top, and this time the rotters want to hike to the plane, believing they are are no survivors, and steal what they can. I cannot recall the title or one single actor, I'm sorry to say. Any help out there?
  6. Watching THE DEVIL AT FOUR O'CLOCK today reminded me of another film in which a plane crashes on a mountain and some men (Robert Wagner?) decide to go the crash site and rummage through the possessions of the dead and take anything of worth. It's a great film, and one of my favorites, but I've gone blank on the title . Many thanks.

    Ralph Meeker

    A day of Ralph Meeker films and no PATHS OF GLORY or KISS ME DEADLY. How disappointing.

    MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW

    You are right. I watched it again. I forgot about the "second honeymoon" they shared in the city and how lovely the hotel staff, even the band, was to them. The ending is amibiguous, so in my film, they are reunited. I think Leon Ames will have a change of heart. I thank you all for your responses. Happy New Year to my TCM friends!

    MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW

    I cannot bear to watch this film. It has to be one of the most heart wrenching films I've ever seen. The sweet elderly couple are sacrificed for bridge night? When it is scheduled, I run to my private collection. Any one else?

    Love Me Tonight? Essential? For Real?

    I'm with you on this.

    Not Politically correct

    I cringe when I see Joan Crawford in black face, or any white actor (Al Jolson). But I understand that those films depict a different time, and what was accepted then is not accepted now. How many times have I heard "free, white, and twenty-one" in my favorite films? How about grown, black men being called 'boy." We can look back and see how far we've come. Language, like technology and fashion, for instance, is in a constant state of flux.

    Tippi Hedren as guest host

    I cannot watch FRENZY. The rape/murder scene makes me physically ill. How could a director like Hitchcock make such a film? Take a look at DARK SIDE OF GENIUS, by Donald Spoto. Hitchcock on the decline when he made that "film." I think he phoned it in.

    Can't find a movie title

    It may be BETWEEN TWO WORLDS,which is one of my favorite John Garfield films. Cast includes Edmund Gwenn, Eleanor Parker, Paul Henreid. Set during World War II.
  14. I can usually find a film by going to IMDB (internet movie database) Website and looking at the filmography. good luck.

    Looking for a Title

    Wow, I have a vague memory, but I cannot remember the film. If it comes to me, I'll be sure to get back to you. The mine-sweeping scene jars a memory, for sure. good luck.
