  1. Rhonda Fleming, the glamorous, flame-haired movie star who appeared in more than 40 pictures, died Wednesday at the age of 97. Her death at the Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, was confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter by her secretary Carla Sapon. She was a longtime supporter of Turner Classic Movies. The photo below was taken during an appearance at the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival. As the late Robert Osborne once observed: "Back in the 1940s and '50s, when Hollywood studios were pretty much run like factories, whenever a film needed a beautiful heroin

  3. I don't ask much but as a devout long time TCM viewer and a former Guest Programmer I feel emboldened to say... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT'S HOLY PLEASE REVERT TO THE OLD FORMAT!!!! I have found NOTHING redeemable with this new change.

  7. Dead Of Night (1945) TCM On Demand 10/10 An architect is invited to a country house and meets several strangers who he suddenly recalls from his nightmares. Each of the strangers has his or her own strange story to tell. An excellent anthology of supernatural stories, first time viewing for me and one of the few times I have given a 10/10 rating to something I have seen only once. Many of these have inspired Twilight Zone episodes and many Hammer film anthologies in the 1960s and 1970s. I was totally engrossed from the moment it started and I liked every single story, unusual since n

  8. Like others, I too registered for the #1 reason to tender my complaint about the new website. I've been watching Turner Classic Movies since its inception in April 1994, WAY before the Internet - back when we used to anxiously for the TV Guide to show up in the US mail. A little background - I'm 64 years old, retired after a lifetime in IT, so I am generally "unafraid" of new things - IF they are improvements! This website change is an EPIC fail - SO clearly redesigned simply "for the sake of change". It reminds me of when you go into your favorite grocery/sundry store and find all the ais

  9. I also enjoyed Destination: Murder, which I had never heard of. Great intro by Eddie Muller. I loved every wild twist of the plot. Hurd Hatfield is well cast as a guy with the line, "I don't like dames." So naturally a dame like Myrna Dell takes that as a challenge, and then . . . (but no spoilers). Nicely acted and directed. So much fun.

  10. Hi everyone, new here! I created an account just to complain about the new format. I hate everything about it! The old format was fine, and actually user-friendly, the new one is not. What I find most irksome (besides all of it) is that the times for the west coast are wrong. I emailed TCM about this, the response was to clear my cache. 😐 I'm actually watching less because of the changes. I can stream whatever I want, whenever I want, so why TCM thinks making their user experience less informative or enjoyable is a good move is beyond me. Idiots.

  12. Sad. Always enjoyed watching her performances.,Ms. Fleming was a great beauty and didn't look her age., She was much more than a great beauty and actress. She was involved in many charitrable causes. Ms. Fleming and her husband founded the Jeruslem Film Institute in Israel. She extablished the Women's Comprhensive Care of UCLA Medical Center. A Center for Women with cancer. Also involved in Alzheimers Research. and many more philanthropic causes. RIP Rhonda Fleming

  16. Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) is the only cast member of GILLIGAN ISLAND who received significant residuals for reruns of the show. Everyone else signed what was the standard television contract at that time, which gave an actor a flat per episode rate plus a residual payment for the first five repeats of the episode. Dawn Wells’s agent at the time (who was also her husband), however, negotiated an amended residual clause for her so she still gets paid for syndicated airings. I admit I’m a fan of Tina Louise and that Ginger Grant is my favorite GILLIGAN’S ISLAND character. In a college revue

  17. Many issues with the new TCM website/schedule. 1. When I view the daily schedule and plug in my time zone (PST) IT DOESN'T STAY THERE if I "get more information" from the site. It reverts to EST. 2. I contacted TCM about the lack of director on certain films and received a somewhat rude reply with screenshot of a film which had the director listed. THIS ISN'T TRUE FOR ALL FILMS. So again had to go to IMDB for info. Maybe the creators of this site should check IMDB for director info if they don't have it? 3. What happened to the email me feature? 4. Have the Imports di

  18. I watched HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, which I have reviewed before. I don't know what else to say except I wish they had found a way to spend a little more money on the technical side of this movie- A LOT of the sound and dialogue is ADR and FOLEY and the camera is unsteady in a few scenes, they also didn't take the time to set up lots of different shots- sort of trying to shoot it like a TV show in as full and unedited takes as possible with no switching between close-ups and wide shots. Also A WHOLE LOT OF "NIGHT" scenes and one scene in a POURING RAINSTORM were obviously filmed at HIGH

  19. No, the schedule is unreadable by everyone, IF ONLY it was a time zone issue! That would just require simple tabulation to know true broadcast time . My biggest beef is I cannot view next month's schedule unless I scroll through each day on the present week by week schedule. Why can't I view the entire month? In advance? And all that's presently listed is the TITLE. I don't know at a glance which version of Gaslight is posted based on the stars on the list. I have to click on the link to open it, an extra step surely added to "track" interest or popularity. Changes to websites is not

  23. One of my favorite plays-into-films. Bellamy is wonderful and Hume Cronyn is great. Greer Garson had a real hill to climb playing Eleanor. She was not known for "character" roles and I thought she really did fine work ( Anne Seymour played the role on Broadway). Franz Waxman's score is superb (and a bit Coplanesque). And I loved Ann Shoemaker as Franklin's mom. I think the play and subsequent screenplay are among the finest in literate treatments of both biographical and political themes. Like ADVISE AND CONSENT, CAMPOBELLO is a long film that does not seem long or protracted. As

  29. That's good that work is being done on the schedule. I figured that it would have to be fixed. You can't have a schedule that is showing the wrong movies at the wrong times. Too bad they weren't working on this new version behind the scenes and keep the old version up until the new version was working properly.

  34. From October 17-20, the Poli ran The Revenge of Tarzan, starring Gene Pollar as the swinger in the loincloth, and Karla Schramm as Jane Porter. The film’s release date is uncertain. The movie was originally released as The Return of Tarzan. A complete seven-reel copy is held in the British Film Institute. Plot: As Tarzan returns to France on an ocean liner, he meets the villainous Rokoff. Tarzan catches Rokoff cheating at cards. In Paris, Rokoff hooks up with another villain, Clayton, and they try to put Tarzan in a compromising situation with the Countess De Coude, who is married to the

  36. She had an interesting film career. She did especially well in noir, action adventures and westerns in the 1950s. TCM doesn't play the Paramount films she made that include: A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (1949) THE GREAT LOVER (1949) THE EAGLE AND THE HAWK (1950) THE LAST OUTPOST (1951) CROSSWINDS (1951) HONG KONG (1952) TROPIC ZONE (1953) PONY EXPRESS (1953) THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE (1953) JIVARO (1954) GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K.
