"Accident" by Joseph Losey cannot be missed.

I've never seen it before. So glad TCM is finally airing it.

Tom Hanks really "morphed" into a major movie star.

I remember when he was starting out in the sitcom Bosom Buddies

Only those two movies. I think Tom Hanks and Sally Field would do so well guest hosting TCM together. Perhaps another movie together as well.

Just wanted to say thanks to rayban and sagebrush, who often let me know the thread is being read and appreciated. (Thanks to everyone else, too!)

"Agatha" with Vanessa Redgrave and Dustin Hoffman is such a dreadful film.

Yes, you commented about it in another thread. But it sounded like you had more problems with Hoffman's casting than with Redgrave or the production values.

I did, but the screenplay isn't terribly convincing, either.

Rosie O'Donnell was in both movies. I wasn't in the mood for Sleepless In Seattle, but did really enjoy A League Of Their Own. Guess it is easier for me to get in the mood for Geena Davis versus Meg Ryan.

That's right, Rosie O'Donnell had a movie career for about five minutes.

I am glad to see you including BritBox.

One day I will lower my cable television service so I can afford other services. They are having a sale. Also, if you pay annually, you get 12 months for the price of 10.

https://www.britbox.com/us/

BritBox mostly has television programs and miniseries that air on the BBC and ITV. But this summer they started adding the Agatha Christie movies.

If they continue to add more British feature films, then I will mention them on this thread.

He's an actor with a very singular presnce.

His acting in an early film,"Night Must Fall", is still very magnetic.
