    Archaic Expressions in Films

    Do you take bicarbonate of soda for your lumbago or your rheumatism? Or is it a tonic for a hotfoot or, perhaps, for a Mickey Finn? Other words/phrases you don't hear much anymore: Lookit instead of look (Ray Bolger's farmhand character in The Wizard of Oz says, "Now, lookit, Dorothy . . ." early in the film.) Chum instead of friend or pal (Seems like Dana Andrews calls other guys "chum" in The Best Years of Our Lives.) C-Note instead of hundred dollar bill Mouthpiece instead of criminal lawyer
  2. Love reformed her and corrupted him. Remember the Night (1940).

    Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    You know who nobody (and I mean NOBODY --- not TCM, CBS Sunday Morning, nor even the Emmy telecast) remembered in their In Memoriam tributes? ROBERT MANDAN (star of TV's "Soap" and "Three's A Crowd"), Feb. 2, 1932--April 29, 2018.

    TCM Remembers 2018

    You know who nobody (and I mean NOBODY --- not TCM, CBS Sunday Morning, nor even the Emmy telecast) remembered in their In Memoriam tributes? ROBERT MANDAN (star of TV's "Soap" and "Three's A Crowd"), Feb. 2, 1932--April 29, 2018.

    Finanal Jeopardy - "Water"

    She's a white Southerner. Role models in modern-day America need to be more like Bruce Jenner, Rose McGowan, or any actor/singer who speaks out against the current President. I don't like the current President either, but just speaking out against him on a late night talk show wouldn't make me a good role model.
  7. Sigh Another induction without Harry Nilsson or Gerry Rafferty.

    Judy Garland, Ideally

    Judy should have replaced Shaye Cohan in Jack and the Beanstalk (1952).

    Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

    BingFan wrote: "My guess is that the scene in question was in one of the remakes of Miracle on 34th Street: the TV versions that were done in 1955, 1959, and 1973, or the theatrical version from 1994." Agree. The scene is probably from one of these other versions.

  13. I really admire what you're doing, rtemilynguyen. There are so many forgotten personalities from old Hollywood. I know what it's like to feel the need to "champion the cause" of an intriguing, talented performer who deserves to be remembered. You're doing a great job. That's what I like about the TCM Message Boards. Where else can you go today and throw out a name like Dwight Frye or James Gleason or Vera-Ellen and right away, everyone knows who you're talking about?
