  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
  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
  16. Hm, I'll have to look for this DVD set. I'd love, love, love to see the Bogie/Bacall interview. It is a shame about the quality, but I'm sure the interviews are interesting nonetheless.
  17. My favorite movie song (actually, my favorite song in general) is "Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz. It's such a beautiful song, and Judy Garland has such an amazing voice. I know all the lyrics by heart, and I recently learned how to play it on the piano. I don't think a day goes by when I don't sing it to myself! I also love "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca and "Getting to Know You" and "Shall We Dance?" from The King and I. I love all the music from that movie though, so it's hard to choose...I swear, I've been listening to my The King and I soundtrack every day for over a m
  18. Since Mr. Smith Goes to Washington counts, I'll have to go with that one as my favorite. I guess I love that movie because it's such an inspirational film. Jimmy Stewart was simply amazing. This was probably my favorite of all his movie roles. And of course, Jean Arthur was stunning as well. I just love her voice!
  19. #1: Favorite Holiday Film: I'm a huge fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas; that's definitely my favorite animated holiday film. I think my favorite live-action holiday film would be either It's a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street. Both those films just make me feel so good every time I see them. #2: Favorite Holiday Television Special: Like bobhopefan, I love the Charlie Brown Christmas Special. It has a good story. #3: Favorite Holiday Tradition: Decorating the Christmas tree has always been one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time. I remember when I was really l
  20. Cary Grant...what is there not to like about him? He could play any role thrown at him, and he was perfect no matter who he was playing, from a stressed-out paleontologist in Bringing Up Baby to a drunken sailor in Father Goose. I absolutely love every movie that he's in, but I must admit that I like him in his comedies better than his dramas. He really was hilarious! I think what I like best about him is his facial expressions. The look on his face in Arsenic and Old Lace when he first opens that window seat and sees a corpse is priceless!
  21. My favorite Bette Davis film is Jezebel. Bette played her part wonderfully; she was so perfect for that role! Henry Fonda was great in that movie too. I also love Jezebel because I'm a huge Antebellum/Civil War fanatic.
  22. Grace Kelly Message was edited by: Kodaprn
  23. My all time favorite musical is The King and I. The music in that film is simply wonderful (I even got the soundtrack for my birthday), and Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr were fantastic in their roles. My second favorite would have to be The Wizard of Oz. "Over the Rainbow" is my all-time favorite song, and Judy Garland is the greatest female vocalist who ever lived.
