  1. Yeah, but finding them free to watch! Some posts here are a real tease! See what I mean?
  2. Uh, gays don't have a monopoly on enjoying male undercupping. Let's not get into a fight over it! It's one of MrTiki's & my favorite movies-we saw it as a complete comedy- almost every aspect of it was ridiculous- A kid on a treacherous dock? You don't go out towards him (you're heavier) you have him walk towards you, but some people panic. Only a RUBE puts a gun in a car's glove box. We couldn't stop laughing at that one. And yeah, Meeker is HOT! I made this photo into a refrigerator magnet -makes me laugh every time I see it
  3. Enough birthday candles on that cake? Looks like a forest fire. I agree. It just goes to show our society still considers this predatory behaviour as a typical topic for discussion. It's not unlike calling out long dead actors as "racist" in their private lives. Not much we can do about it now.
  4. There is no comparison watching a WB cartoon on 35mm projected by a carbon arc light and digital projected Blu-Ray. I think most theaters have installed the costly DVD conversion only to have been replaced by "streaming" movies. I much prefer seeing a beautiful film print, even with flaws, it always looks more "real".
  5. While performing some restoration work on a 1925 classic movie theater, I overheard the new owner saying exactly that, "I want to show a 3 Stooges short, then a WB Bugs Bunny cartoon then a classic feature film like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, just like going to the movies used to be like. I have a huge collection of Blue Ray disks-it'll be GREAT!"
  6. Another poster who does not understand broadcast "packaging" of films. Networks don't always have control of what they are licensed to broadcast by availability, cost & "bundled" packages offered by distributors.
  7. All those things humans wish for: life after death, mental telepathy, not being alone in the universe. Interesting picturing the alien hovering above a paralyzed person....not unlike a ghost or prey animal. Throughout my life, I've been plagued by "ghosts" mysteriously touching or speaking to me when there's no one there. It was terrifying until a neurologist linked these events with migraine headaches. Thankfully, they rarely happen anymore. The worst hallucination was seeing a silvery water splashing down on my head....
  8. Thanks-I saw this in the theater too & don't recall much of it, except liking it. All I can think of is Corky St Clair in WAITING FOR GUFFMAN suggesting a "Remains Of The Day" lunchbox, lol. Also THANKS to Lorna for your observations of NASHVILLE, a film I've always wanted to see but now won't be upset if I never do.
  9. Correct! Basil's blouse & hair make him look like a man in drag-oh the indignities!
  10. I have an early (ca 1970) plaster casting of the Black Bird used in the movie and it weighs over 25lbs, plenty heavy to break a toe. It's hard for me to believe a 50 lb film prop would be made or used on set. I lift 50 lb bags of feed all the time and can't imagine having to schlep that kind of weight and ACT without straining, losing my breath. Here's my photo:
  11. I gave a good friend of mine a gorgeous cheesecake photo of Angela Lansbury to gaze upon in his deathbed. Don't know what happened to it, but recall she was reclining in a gown with a leg showing. Lansbury was and continues to be an absolutely beauty-packed with brains & big talent.
  12. I just finished the documentary on Netflix FIVE CAME BACK, the 2017 documentary about the involvement of great Hollywood directors making oversea films chronicling WW2. It's shown in 3 parts: 1. The Mission Begins: this concerns the war department hiring Hollywood studio Directors to make propaganda films. It explains the Government's reasoning & the reactions of the Directors John Huston, William Wyler, Frank Capra, George Stevens & John Ford. Huston is assigned to chronicle everything that happens at the Midway Islands & Frank Capra assigned a "Why We Fight" series that expl
  13. Cool! She was really an amazing talent that I think went unnoticed & for granted until the GGs. I spotted her in an early film lampooned by MST3K, she looked about 18-20. Like Bettie White (and Dick Clark) Rue McClanhan NEVER AGED, she was always beautiful & a wonderfully talented charactor actress. I loved her as the "swinger" in an All In The Family episode - Edith naively answered a "lonely couple looking for friendship" ad in a magazine!
  14. Where did you find 63 UP? After waiting 7 years, I so much want to see it. It was only released here theatrically before the shutdown. I usually wait for my library to get new releases, but obviously libraries haven't been buying anything. I agree with your assessment about the repeated footage. The 7 year old "I'd like to work in a flower shop" always reminds me of Eliza Doolittle. That's why it's great to watch on DVD & just ff through those parts. Apted sure had a wide variety of projects. Rest In Peace, thank you for your work.
  15. Sorry to come to this late...but I came across this on YT and thought the comments were perfection: It made me want to see this movie! I always notice when older charactors wear fashions of their youth vs fashions of the day, often age inappropriate. And the color & detail of costuming (& hair/make up) are astoundingly good-no wonder it won the costuming Oscar. I was amazed at the scene "on top" of the pyramid, but I gave up after PlutoTV interrupted several times with the same commercial! I understand similar ilk MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS is a bit better.
  16. Not really, British "Til Death Do Us Part" was the original germ, but JOE influenced the Archie Bunker charactor. I just requested this from the library. I love Peter Boyle & want to see everything he's in. Let's hope I can stomach the violence/tawdry situations.
  17. Last night I watched 1935's THE GILDED LILY starring Claudette Colbert, Fred MacMurray & Ray Milland- obviously, a love triangle comedy. MacMurray & Colbert are normal working class friends who meet in the park every week & visit. Colbert happens upon a chance meeting with Milland, who is a British Nobleman "slumming" in America. Of course, she falls for him but circumstances lead to a misunderstanding before he sails home. The rest of the story is typical and is told pretty typically, nothing really outstanding. It's beautifully photographed with great costumes for C
  18. Yeah, it helps when you read further than the headline. This is what happens when hospitals are full.
  19. And Ron Howard...what a treasure! Fun to watch him grow up along with us! No one has mentioned Jackie "Butch" Jenkins who gave hilarious deadpan performances- Here's a pic of him as a grown man without his trademark freckles-
  20. Well, last night I watched the noir TOO LATE FOR TEARS '49 for the first time. Someone here had talked about it here & my library had a newly restored version-yay! This movie had me from the very beginning- a married couple is driving down the road when someone in another car tosses a sachel into the back seat of their convertible! They stop, look & the bag is full of MONEY! Realizing the mistake, another car chases them, but they lose him & drive home to discuss what to do. The husband is adamant they turn the money over to the police, but the wife gets a gleam in her e
  21. Welcome to the board...and we're GLAD to have you! People reading posts here appreciate your use of full sentences for better comprehension & engagement. Nothing is more frustrating than a newbie posting fragmented sentences with symbols assuming readers can understand their intention. It's what separates a newbie from a noobie.
  22. Was watching a live walking tour of NYC (oh how I miss the crowded streets & grand department stores) and was shocked to see a completely boarded up AMC multiplex theater.
  23. Thank you! I requested that as well as ROAD HOUSE from my library. I rely on opinions expressed in this thread. Especially ones that lead me to avoid stinkers, like JAGGED EDGE. When I was 14, my brother was 26 and our Mother was 46. He was a honeymoon baby & I am the "mistake".
  24. (Sic) I too just adore Dick Shawn....wish there were more examples of his talent captured on film for the ages.
