  1. Hi everyone, and I want to thank the administrators for allowing me to join the TCM message board😀. My interest in classic movies has been a part of me for many years. When I was a child, mom used to tell me stories about stars of the 30s, 40s, and 50s, and when I grew older, I would go to the library and bring home stacks of books on stars--Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Lana Turner, etc. Being invited to this message board would give me a chance to learn from those of you are experienced and to share my knowledge of a class of people who kept us viewers entertained for so many years.

  2. Nothing INSPIRES TERROR quite like EXTRA NEAT CURSIVE, huh? THE MUMMY (1933) I have this on DVD, but it's an issue of the OLD, CRAPPY print before UNIVERSAL went back and restored most of their major monster titles (i mean REALLY cleaned up the soundtracks of noise and cleared the picture up astoundingly well and repaired damaged frames digitally.) i was on a MUMMY FILM kick recently, and I popped the DVD (crappy print and all) in, but could not make it through. Wooden. Stale. Dusty. i caught the RESTORED VERSION on TCM this morning (nice surprise) and again, I will state

  4. Nip, IF you actually KNEW the history of elections in this country and DIDN'T believe all the BS coming out of your Fat Boy Donny's mouth's, THEN you WOULD know that EVERY general election's results HAVE not been and ARE not VERIFIED and OFFICIAL until on average a WEEK after the polls have closed on election night. Nope dude, IF you actually KNEW your stuff and hadn't drank from Fat Boy's Kool-Aid glass, then you'd KNOW that ALL election results by the end of election night are and have ALWAYS been merely UNofficial...PERIOD!

  5. Psycho is probably Hitchcock's most celebrated film, certainly his most famous, and it had a great influence, of course, on slasher films to come. Well crafted as it may be, though, it's a difficult film for me to really enjoy because of its darkness. Many of my favourite Hitchcocks are those done with a light touch, the last of them being North By Northwest. Being, essentially, a psychological study with the superficial trappings of a mystery, Vertigo is not a light hearted film and it puzzled many critics and viewers at the time of its release, failing to be the hit its director d

Notes: - The dates shown are based on a programming day starting at 6 am ET and running past midnight. - On Tuesdays, TCM is featuring the 'Women Make Film' series which has several premieres, so these are listed separately. - On Saturdays, TCM is premiering episodes of the Wild West Days serial along with selected cartoons, so these are listed separately. Nov 1 - Behind the Door (1919) Nov 1 - The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum (1975) Nov 1 - Coup de Grace (1976)

  13. Lady in White - worth seeing despite flaws Almost distractingly bad visual effects but a chilling story. Real life monsters can be much more horrifying than imaginary ones. Just so you know, the n-word is used and that part of the story is under-developed. I don’t know how else to say it without giving anything away. Edited to add: meant to mention that the for some reason the image of the windmill silhouetted against the sky by a cottage reminds me of Night of the Hunter.

  14. Is anyone else as in love with the villains in Hitchcock films as I am? Was it Hitch who once said that evil is at its most effective when it comes in an attractive package? Possibly it wasn't Hitch. It might have been Charles Laughton in reference to Night of the Hunter. Nevertheless, even if Sir Alfred didn't actually say it many of his films reflect it. There was chatty little Cockney assassin Edmund Gwenn in Foreign Correspondent, suave, sophisticated Herbert Marshall in the same film, as well as Otto Kruger in Saboteur. James Mason was admirably performing the same cultured

  18. Looks like this is turning into a Hitchcock thread. Which is just fine - who doesn't like Hitch? Many things to say about "Vertigo", but right now I'll settle for the music. This soundtrack by Hitchcock stalwart Bernard Herrmann has to be one of the most evocative, memorable themes in all filmdom. It has such a mysterious, yearning quality. It really captures the whole feeling of the film - which is, of course, mysterious and yearning.

  19. I watched a couple of scenes from MARA MARU, which was playing on TCM this morning. It's a programmer, clearly made after Warner Brothers had lost interest in Errol Flynn who was now in his declining years as a star. This is the closest that Flynn came to appearing in a film noir but the film has reams of dull talk in its slow first half as the plot about a treasure hunt starts to unfold. Still, Flynn, always an underrated actor, has a fine moment towards the end when he slaps his faithful Filipino assistant across the face after the latter refuses to return a jewelled cross to him

  26. I've watched quite a few films recently that I loved and some that I was lukewarm about, but I wanted to discuss one in particular... ::SPOILERS:: Detour (1945). I finally watched this noir with Tom Neal (as you may recall beat the crap out of Franchot Tone while the two men were embroiled in a love triangle with Barbara Payton; then later he was in jail for manslaughter) and as Lorna refers to her, ANN SAH-VAGE. Basically in a nutshell, Tom Neal plays a disillusioned pianist who decides to hitchhike across country to reunite with his girlfriend in Hollywood. His girlfriend has

  28. I'll assume you've seen The Sixth Sense? (Scariest sympathetic ghosts ever.) Otherwise, this is the point where some showoff recommends George C. Scott in The Changeling (1980), although it becomes considerably less scary once we hear the ghost.
