I have never seen it. Not sure if TCM's ever aired it.

They aired it once, as I recorded it from that broadcast. It was discussed quite a bit on the boards at the time. I like the movie a lot, but many people don't, as it's very ugly.

As for "cruise", how about this one?

One of DAYS' best storylines. John Aniston talked about it in his recent interview with the Television Academy.

Thanks for letting me know about LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR, which I obviously missed on TCM!

My favorite part of CARS is when the neon comes on and all the cars cruise down the new road and Mater says "Miss Sally, may I have this cruise?" If you have been to Cars Land in Disneyland's neighboring park California Adventure, you've seen how cool it is in real life

Spoiler Alert

Looking for Mr. Goodbar is unusual because the main character dies. It is ugly because of the way she dies: all shown on screen, and all from her perspective, if I recall correctly. Not sure I would recommend it -- it is intense. But I'm also glad that I saw it because I had heard so much about it.

Harrison's Flowers (2001), starring Andie MacDowell and Adrien Brody. Another film that is not easy to watch but it's really good. I saw it in the theater when it was released in the United States.

Not a movie, per se, but an episode of Frontline: The Trial of Ratko Mladic. I think it aired for the first time this past week. I've only seen snippets; it's another tough one to watch.

Thanks Marianne. I hadn't heard of it.

She was worth it !

Sorry its a bit blurry. I had to shrink the file.

This site lists some of the salaries for 1937.

http://stuffnobodycaresabout.com/2014/08/30/salaries-hollywood-1937/

Peter Lorre deserved a lot more. 

Jean Arthur and Warner Baxter did very well. Though I guess it depends on how many films they made during the year. Gary Cooper's salary doesn't surprise me. Helen Gahagan made no films in 1937, so she must have been earning money from radio or stage work.

Here's a less blurry image of Ginger:

 Talk about the Good Neighbor Policy.....

Darryl F Zanuck paid Carmen Miranda the highest salary--male or female-- in Hollywood during World War II.
