  1. These sound great. And the heck with the ratings! Besides, they didn't begin until Nov. 1, 1968. So any films released before then should be fine. Anyway, TCM can show skin between 10 P. M. and 6 A. M. Eastern time.
  2. William Schallert played the put-upon high school principal Mr. Pomfret in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis." That's where I first saw him.

    So insensitive.

    September 11th.

    I wonder if TCM has anything planned to commemorate the 10th. anniversary of 9/11? Perhaps a festival of films celebrating New York City through the years.

    Gunga Din: What's all the fuss about?

    miss wonderly: in the U. S., Memorial Day is the last Sunday in May, and a postal holiday the next day.

    User Ratings & Reviews

    What I was referring to is in a section at the bottom of a films first page. Can you help with that?
  7. In the user ratings and reviews for various movies, how is the information on "cinema history" compiled? What criteria is used/applied, and whose views are used? Thank you very much.
  8. Why can't the TV distributor of the film in question provide accurate running times? You'd think that they would know.

    Charlie Sheen to be new TCM Host

    Am I the only one to see that this is an April Fools joke?

    "Leonard Maltin Review"

    If the IMDb is correct, then Robert Osborne is 78, so if Peter Bogdanovich is 71, it still makes him Mr. Osborne's junior by 7 years. Although Leonard Maltin is certainly qualified to be the weeknight prime-time host, it would probably mean less exposure than he currently receives on "Entertainment Tonight," and a smaller paycheck as well, though I certainly don't know this to be a fact.
  11. I was referring only to the 8 "Man From U.N.C.L.E." films that were theatrically released (it was these that were shown in a daytime marathon that you referred to), not to episodes of the 1964-68 TV series. I saw some of the movies when they were first released, and enjoyed them all.
  12. I note that the three leads of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." each have their respective birthdays in consecutive months, and was wondering if TCM could please play, say, 2-3 of the "U.N.C.L.E." movies on each actors' birthday, showing all 8 in total. The actors and their birthdays are: David McCallum on Sept. 19th., Leo G. Carroll on Oct. 25th., and Robert Vaughn on Nov. 22nd. Of course, it'd be great if TCM could show them again before then, maybe as a weekly Saturday morning series.
  13. In looking at the schedule for today, I noticed that TCM didn't include the Leonard Maltin star rating for three films for which he provided such a rating, and was wondering why this happened. The films were "The Children's Hour," "The Last of Sheila," and "Splendor in the Grass."

    Actors/Actresses Who IRRITATE You!

    Actresses who irritate me: Doris Roberts and Julia Roberts (wonder if they're related?). And Jane Lynch (the commercials she does for Xfinity). Plus Cher. But the fewer mentions of her on this site the better.
  15. Most months I enter TCM's Book Sweepstakes, dutifully filling in the entry form as required. One thing I wonder about is this: if/when you're contacted by phone, do they speak to the winner or just leave a message? The reason I ask is that my phone isn't set up to receive messages, and I'd hate to think that I might've won, but didn't know because they gave up on me. (BTW: The best way to reach me is by e-mail and postal mail.) If anyone can answer definitively, I'd appreciate it.
