  1. I usually watch classic films alone, since I don't know anyone who enjoys them as much as I do. Sometimes, like I did last night, I'll watch a movie after everyone has gone to bed since I have the T.V. to myself (yes, I'm also the only one in the family who stays up late). But when there is a movie on earlier that I want to watch, I usually have to go watch it in the another room so the rest of my family can watch something else. Which kind of stinks, because I prefer the big T.V., but whatever. By the way, jdb1, I completely agree with you. I'm 16, and from what I know, probably only a handful of kids my age could tell me the name of a movie from the 1940s. All they seem to want to watch is The O.C., House, etc. etc. They really have no clue what they're missing.
  2. I didn't know she had a miscarriage either. Actually, that's kind of creepy that she lost the baby by falling down the stairs. It reminds me of when she fell down the stairs in Gone with the Wind. Perhaps that scene was an omen?
  3. Also found a great Marilyn Monroe picture:
  4. I'm not a huge Brando fan (yet), but I figured I'd join in the fun:
  5. Enough though I've only ever seen her in Gone with the Wind (one of the greatest films ever made!), Vivien Leigh is one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, actresses. From the moment I first saw Gone with the Wind, her beauty and spirit immediately captured my attention, and still does. To me, she is the most beautiful actress of all time. I also really wish TCM would show more of her films, particularly Waterloo Bridge and A Streetcar Named Desire, so that I can see her in some other roles. That would be great if TCM could devote a day (or even a month) to her.
  6. I wish TCM would show Holiday Inn since I haven't seen it and would really like to, but since they aren't, I guess I'll just have to rent or buy the DVD.
  7. Actors Humphrey Bogart: Casablanca Jimmy Stewart: It's a Wonderful Life Cary Grant: This is a tough one...probably Bringing Up Baby or Notorious Edward G. Robinson: Key Largo James Cagney: Angels with Dirty Faces Errol Flynn: Captain Blood Actresses Vivien Leigh: Gone with the Wind Lauren Bacall: Key Largo or To Have and Have Not Katharine Hepburn: Bringing Up Baby or The African Queen Barbara Stanwyck: Double Indemnity Jean Arthur: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  8. I remember when I first saw June Allyson in Little Women her voice drove me insane. It was one of the main reasons why I didn't really like that film.
  9. Lauren Bacall, hands down, is my favorite! I also love Grace Kelly, Jean Arthur, Barbara Stanwyck, and lots of other great actresses that I'll think of later.
  10. I thought Claire Trevor was amazing in Key Largo. She definitely deserved the Oscar she got for that role.
  11. I think my favorite Christmas musical is probably White Christmas. Vera Ellen is one of the most amazing dancers I've ever seen, and I thoroughly enjoyed every scene she was in. I actually haven't seen Holiday Inn, but it sounds excellent from what everyone is saying. I wish TCM would show it (so far I've only seen it shown on nasty AMC).
  12. Barbara Stanwyck in 1938's Always Goodbye
  13. A lovely photo of Vivien Leigh I stumbled upon whilst browsing:
  14. Mmmm, I love Jimmy Stewart! He's right near the top of my list of favorite actors. I enjoy every single film he is in, and whenever I watch a movie with him in it that I haven't seen yet, I know it's going to be good. My favorite movie of his is It's a Wonderful Life, closely followed by Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Rear Window. He really was such an amazing actor, and his performances were some of the best ever to grace the silver screen.
  15. I have been absolutely loving these serials! I decided to watch them when TCM started showing them because I am such a huge fan of The Adventures of Superman with George Reeves (I swear, it's my favorite show). Anyway, I incredibly enjoy the corniness and silliness of these serials, from the "This looks like a job for SUPERMAN" line to the anticipation of seeing what Lois's next hat will look like. But aside from that, I think the casting and the storylines are superb. I am currently eagerly awaiting next Saturday's serial: Was Superman really dissolved into atoms? Will Lois go careening off the cliff? Who knows!
