    A Night to Remember and tcm forgets

    Hi, NipkowDisc. Just a guess --- TCM has probably aired ANTR in honor of Titanic's April anniversary at some time in the past (2012 was the 100th anniversary, so possibly then?), but they probably can't arrange to do this every year.

    Obscure films with well-known stars

    No, I missed it. I'm hoping "Welcome, Stranger" (1947) will pop up on YouTube someday. It also stars Bing and Barry Fitzgerald.

    Obscure films with well-known stars

    From 1949:

    Actor Richard Erdman 1925-2019)

    I knew him mainly as 'Hoffy' from Stalag 17, and despite Erdman's opinion that he was "the only guy in the picture who wasn't funny," I think he delivers the film's funniest line. 'Sgt. Schultz' enters the P.O.W.s' barracks and asks, "Did I interrupt something, gentlemen?" to which 'Hoffy' responds, "Yeah, Schultz, we were just passing out guns." R.I.P., Mr. Erdman.

    Actor Luke Perry (1966-2019)

    Luke Perry's final film will be released posthumously this summer. Quentin Tarantino's much anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters on July 26. The film is set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969 and features two fictional characters, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who interact with real life Hollywood stars from that era (Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen, Dreama Walker as Connie Stevens, Mike Moh as Bruce Lee, Rumer Willis as Joanna Pettet, and Rachel Redleaf as Mama Cass Elliott). The film is set against the backdrop of the Manson Family murders, which claimed the lives of Tate, her infant son, and four others at her home on Cielo Dr. in Benedict Canyon in the early morning hours of Aug. 9, 1969. I am unable to figure out if Luke Perry portrays a fictional character named Scott Lancer or if he's portraying real life actor Wayne Maunder, who starred as a character named Scott Lancer on the late '60s TV western Lancer (CBS, 1968-1970). Either way, I'm guessing that Tarantino is either a fan of Maunder (who passed away in Nov. 2018) or of the show Lancer, or both.

    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
  9. Love reformed her and corrupted him. Remember the Night (1940).

    Movies that won't be shown on TCM

    Beau James (1957) and The Five Pennies (1959) --- 2 great Paramount biopics from the late Fifties which TCM. for some reason, won't air.

    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.

    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.
  14. Sigh Another induction without Harry Nilsson or Gerry Rafferty.
