  1. Except of Muslims, blacks, women in positions of power, immigrants in general, anyone seeking an abortion and Democrats, you mean.

  2. I had a house full of people today for a birthday party. TCM was on in the background and her GOD-AWFUL pants brought the party to a screeching halt. The party girl -her 80th- exclaimed "What is she wearing!" and all heads turned and you could hear a pin drop. We haven't seen a worse pair of double knit slacks since Hillary ran.

  6. I contracted Shingles in the eye a few years ago and over an extended time of treatment had multiple injections in the eyeball. It didn't hurt at the time because of anesthesia but it's not to pleasant to know what was going on. It just numbed the eye, I was not put out. I had to ply myself with ibuprofen before the numbness wore off because it was not so painful but mighty uncomfortable. I also had two eye operations where I could see whatever they use going into my eye and they stirred around and my eye seemed like soup. Again they don't put you out for that. Each operation took an hour and

  7. Wine is a great thing to sell. Drink the wine, watch the movies. Worse case the movies seem better or you fall asleep. Considering someone over there thought astrology was a fantastic idea for a theme, be glad they don't sell knitting needles and yarn.

  8. Tuesday, Aug. 03, 11:30 AM - Kiss Me Stupid. Star of the show is Dean Martin's Dual-Ghia. He actually owned one as did other Rat Pack members. According to Wikipedia this is his in the movie. I believe Peter Lawford also owned one which he used for the opening credits of his The Thin Man TV series. Or maybe he borrowed it. Based on a Dodge, but body crafted in Italy by Ghia. I actually saw one of these at a car show several years ago. It was one of many nice cars owned by the owner of several automobile dealerships. At 11:15 PM you can see Jimmy Stewart in his De Soto Firedome i

  9. There was no evidence of that whatsoever. It is all in MyPillow Guy's head. I recall you joking about how Hillary Clinton supporters cried after she lost and ridiculing them for being sore losers. The 2020 election was 9 months ago! Your guy lost to an 80 year-old who campaigned from his basement and it wasn't even close. Stop whining like a little baby about it.

  10. Please repeat after me, MM: Biden won the election. Trump lost it. There, that wasn't so difficult to say, was it? Okay, maybe it was a little tough for you the first time but keep repeating those words to yourself until one day you finally come to believe them. And then, guess what, you'll finally be in the world of reality. Next up will be a real toughie for you, though, but I hope you can say it; The Democrats are NOT responsible for every evil known to mankind. I admit it might take a while before you really believe this one.

  11. I just returned from a shopping trip and I wore a mask from the time I walked out my front door until the time I had all my grocery bags in the house (I live alone). I have comorbidity and am expecting a need for a booster shot.

  12. The discussion is not over requiring state approved ID, but how the regulations are used to suppress the vote. It is difficult for many to obtain a "state approved ID," much more so than registering to vote in many cases. As I noted, the source I cited states that all states require some form of "ID." NO state just lets you walk in and say I am so and so and then vote. There are methods to cast provisional votes, but then you have to come back or go to a central office with the necessary documentation. In S.C. you have to have photo ID to vote which can be a state ID card or driv

  13. Indeed Hedy was a favorite of the Hollywood photographers like George Hurrell ,Clarence Bull etc .I collect vintage original photos of Hedy Lamarr for many years, She was the most beautiful woman on the the first 50 years of the silver screen IMO and please no arguing from a Ava Gardner fan !

  14. This from Rolling Stone : [click on the underlined word] "A recent Associated Press analysis of government data found that 98.9 percent of Covid-related hospitalizations are among the unvaccinated. Same goes for 99.2 percent of Covid-related deaths."

  15. Well I liked it. So I salute all the disgruntled with a super gulp size Bronx cheer. From Eddie's pre bumper I mistakenly assumed it was the brother that was the real shrink. THAT would have worked a little better with the look alike angle. Twins rather than some random doppelgänger. Whatever though. I like Joan Bennet, she gets extra credit for The Woman in the Window, which is excellent. And Hollow Triumph gets points for the Fotomat screw-up. Nice touch!

  16. Gotta say here Okay laffite! WHEN did I give you any permission to "borrow" my "Sigmund Freud" shtick from that "(I can't stand) Alicia Malone" thread that ANOTHER newbie recently posted their dislike of another of TCM's hosts, HUH?! (...what...do I have to now COPYRIGHT ever damn thing I post around here or somethin'???!!!)

  17. In my area, the news is a bit different. Although the week of July 22-29 saw an increase of new cases by 82%, the "vast majority" of those were of the un-vaccinated. Similarity it is the same with new hospitalizations for Covid. San Diego is sticking with State guidelines that masks are not required indoors if vaccinated. I wear a mask indoors everywhere except at home. The only indoor venue I frequent is a food store.

Okay sure, maybe not THAT, but I DO think Ben can be rather witty sometimes and DOES occasionally offer up a little tidbit of info about some old movie that even I (someone who has SO damn much knowledge about classic movies tucked into the deep recesses of this brain of mine that my wife will sometimes tell others that her husband "has a mind full of useless information") didn't know! Take for instance, the very DAY that I started to warm

  19. By influence, I mean influencing the content of the scripts she presents, and likely the selection of silent films she presents. The reason I include her as having more influence in this arena over Malone, Karger or Mankiewicz is that she's a recognized expert in her field, academically. The others got into the game either because of their other media exposure, or intense personal interest in film that led them up the ladder to their present positions. I'm not questioning their credentials in the least, as TCM hired them because of their backgrounds. It lends more credibility to the e

  20. "............ This was what Giuliani, Sondland, and Mulvaney had been up to. This was the president’s purpose in placing a hold on the funds to Ukraine. He meant to use lifting the hold as an inducement for Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden. His real purpose in making this call had nothing to do with repairing Ukraine policy. He was extorting Ukraine to damage a political challenger at home and boost his own political fortunes....... “If what I just heard becomes public,” I told my brother, “the president will be impeached.”........ ......Nobody else was going to say anything abo

  21. My little fuzzy regularly needs blood drawn. He sees it as an opportunity. Typical: Him: I hope it is okay if I am a little nervous. Nurse: Do you hate needles? Him: It is not that. I have learned that it is usually not a good thing when a beautiful woman comes at me with a sharp object. I found it a little amusing when he received his first shot of vaccine because it was done by a male and he had no line appropriate for the event.

  23. None of us know for sure, but knowing the way corporations work, I'd wager the people you see on camera have very little input in the final say as to what goes on air. AT&T/WB/whoever won't take the risk. Rest assured that everything that you see has been blessed by higher-ups and lawyers. The on-air talent may suggest ideas in meetings and whatnot (perhaps even more so for Muller and Stewart), but by and large it's the unseen programmers who do the heavy lifting in that department.

  24. I like Alicia Malone. Some of the comments on this post about her seem harsh. I like the way she shares interesting information before/after films and she's a good host. Some of the other hosts are amazing especially Eddie Muller and Jacqueline Stewart but that doesn't mean Alicia Malone isn't good. Muller and Stewart have a wealth of knowledge and share great insights on classic movies. I've rented noir films that include commentaries by Eddie Muller that show his expertise and really enhance your appreciation of the film. Jacqueline Stewart knows the history of film and goes the extra

  25. What is the source of the above statement. Here again you are confusing different topics. These people were not removed for not having an ID - they were removed for other reasons the same as every state does periodically. Regardless, Trump lost because he was stupid for four years as president and did some really, really, really dumb things. In addition, his supporters compounded Trump's stupidities and together they OFFENDED THE MAJORITY OF VOTERS IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE AS WELL AS THE GENERAL VOTE. ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE AFTER MULTIPLE INVESTIGATIONS, RECOUNTS, AUDITS, ETC. AND MI

  26. Just like if TCM were to air SUPERMAN (1978) on a 'Marlon Brando' SUTS Day. I remember reading a Richard Burton quote from somewhere . . . wish I could remember where, but it went something like this: "I've done some of the most awful rubbish in order to have someplace to go in the morning". I've always enjoyed the 1978 suspense movie THE MEDUSA TOUCH. It's a lot of fun with Burton having telekinesis and going off the deep end. To kill!

  27. There are millions of illegal voters that have no ID, so to say they already require it is laughable. As long as the state democrats get the results they want, they will not require voter ID.

  29. Those are known as "Maxwell rolls", named for Perry Maxwell, a banker who became a golf course architect later in life. He redesigned part of Augusta National back in the 1930s, and some of those features still remain. He was from my hometown, and he designed his first course for the local country club.

  30. Exacrtly. That's what responsible, intelligent, thinking people are doing. Getting vaccinated, wearing a mask in public places and keeping a reasonable distance. They are paying attention to what's going on and taking the necessary precautions.

  31. Yes, I thought LaVar Burton was very good as guest host. There are still a few more guest hosts in the next few weeks so I'll hold off on an opinion on who I think should be host until they've all had their turn

  32. Wait around long enough on this board & you find something you have in common with EVERYONE! Exactly like TB, I "group" recordings, since many titles run near 60-90 minutes. Those plastic shoeboxes are the perfect size for storing DVDs and if you use double sided envelopes, they have top tabs with holes for putting in binders (like Sepia & Tom use) I store these envelopes "flap side up" & write in Sharpie what they are. Instead of alphabetizing, it's either by decade or by "star"-so for example there are 2 tabs of ANN SHERIDAN envelopes containing 4 disks, 2 movies e

  35. NoShear, Thank you for the clip from The Omega Man. I was trying to i.d. the make of the car that Robert Neville (Charlton Heston) was driving. According to YouTube commenters, it's a Pontiac Catalina. Those were the days . . . for stylish, distinctive looking American cars. Modern US cars are, by comparison, aesthetically dull and stylistically unappealing, as far as I'm concerned. My drive through downtown L.A., blasting John Lennon's and Yoko Ono's Woman is the N-word* of the World occurred about eleven years before I actually worked downtown -- for an accounting firm at

  37. I dig these far out poetry threads man. Poetry ran in Millicent's blood, along with an undiagnosed social disease. I believe her distinctive poetic voice is due in part to her upbringing. Born a child of the Depression, she grew up on the mean streets of Chickenhawk, Nebraska. At eight years of age she started handing out candy to strangers. Despite these hard luck beginnings she later graduated with a degree in Animal Husbandry from State U. Hard to believe a poet could emerge from this background, but talent will always come to the fore. Elouise lacked Millicent's p

  38. I don't think any host should be off-limits to criticize, but so far I haven't found Alicia to be any worse than the others as far as preachiness. I will say those blue stretch pants she's wearing today are not flattering, however.

  39. You mean Queen Mera? It's not like Warner/DC didn't THINK about it, during their still franchise-universe obsessed post-Justice League days of praying for spinoffs, but by that point, they were letting Jason Momoa's Aquaman sink or swim. (Yes, "Elektra syndrome" doesn't just apply to Marvel and the Black Widow movie after Iron Man 2.) Of course, that depends on whether Johnny Depp Pirates fans will let the studio make a movie with Amber Heard.

  46. MM listed Vermont twice because there's twice as many Democrats there, he figures. Trump won exactly one county in that state in the election, while Biden walked away with 66% of the overall vote. He's still ticked the state gave Biden three electoral votes.
