    Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    Joseph Campanella also did voiceover work on reruns of Life Is Worth Living. from Wikipedia: Syndication Reruns of Life Is Worth Living and The Fulton Sheen Program continued to circulate as late as the early 1990s on broadcast stations, and was later carried by EWTN, with new introductions by actor Joseph Campanella.

    Watch TCM and TCM on Demand

    Stephan55 and everyone: Sorry I've been away too long from the boards. Have been caught up with many things, including preparing to "cut the (cable) cord". Had to put aside issue of TCM on the computer/mobile device for other higher priority technical issues. It turns out, despite prior advice from numerous sources, that I've had serious issues obtaining digital TV signals over the air. I want to get my local stations + PBS (+ those channels that show retro shows). Am on another attempt to get that done. I hate the idea of having to pay (Sling at $25/month) to get stations that broadcast their digital signals for free. It also bothers me that I cannot get TCM on its own, like you can HBO (@ $15/mo). As far as I can tell, the only way to do that is to go through Sling + do TCM as an add-on, which would cost almost $400 per year!!! I don't have the budget for that. Does anyone know if there's an alternative/less expensive way to get TCM without going the cable route? When I originally believed I'd be easily able to get my digital signals (major networks, including PBS) for free with Mohu antennae, I'd decided that unless I got a windfall, I'd do Sling w/TCM for 2 months/year. Sling has no contract requirements and then I could see my favorite TCM broadcasts, "31 Days of Oscar." Again, sorry for my delayed response! Would love any input about this process.

    I particularly liked "Alfie" and "Educating Rita," with Michael Caine. May Mr. Gilbert, who led a long life, RIP.

    D O Stiers did a lot of voiceovers + narration on PBS documentaries. Had a good voice. May he RIP. Too many people seem to be dying "too soon."

    Forget Deborah Walley: seeing the Seeds singing that song is a real blast from the past! ;D

    Our Members Tributes to Robert Osborne (1932-2017)

    Am just catching up on the TCM message boards. My birthday is April 14th, and until 1994, only bad things commemorated it (Lincoln being shot; Titanic hitting iceberg; day before income tax deadline). Finally, I can now say that my birthday also coincides with something positive: TCM, introduced by Robert Osborne, debuting on the air! 😃

    This was NOT in the original "Columbo" series with Peter Falk.

    Million Dollar Movie in the NYC area introduced me to "Forbidden Planet," which I watched as many times as I could possibly catch it.

    During the tribute remembering his birthday (was it "Private Screenings" with Alec Baldwin?), he said he'd wished that his bobble head doll looked more like him. Still, I'd have loved to have one!

    In addition to Ben Mankiewicz's grandfather being co-writer on "Citizen Kane," his father was campaign press secretary to Robert F. Kennedy during his run at the Presidency. There were many luminaries who visited the Mankiewicz home. Ben most definitely has the pedigree + the intelligence to qualify him to host TCM (as opposed to someone like DB). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mankiewicz_family Ben Mankiewicz' father: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Mankiewicz

    Sadly, Frontier has never been able to get me to be able to use the TCM app despite me subscribing to TCM + have not found any great support from TCM either.

    Always on TV during the 60s as a guest in one series or another! Seems as if she led a long fruitful life. May Ms. Latham RIP.😿

    I remember seeing Tim O'Connor not too long ago on an old "Columbo" episode.
