  1. During times in between movies to be shown there has been a compilation of segments from Oscar nominated films. One of the movie clips shows an earthquake where a pillar with the head of a god is seen. A battle is going on and it looks like this event happened during the time of the Roman empire or maybe after that. I think it is from the silent movie, Intolerance, but am not sure about this. Does anyone know which movie this scene if from? Please let me know as I would like to purchase it. Thank you.

    I Love Lucy

    The episode that you spoke of, "Lucy Takes a Trip to Havana", is not on the Volume 1 box set.
  3. I don't think that June Allyson was a prostitute because she worked as an actress in MGM studios and they would not allow a prostitute to become an actress. June Allyson has always come across to me as a joyful person who enjoyed singing and dancing parts in movies.
  4. The third one has Elvis Presley playing his guitar, but I don't know who the girl is. Message was edited by: Kinston
  5. The first one is Debbie Reynolds and William Holden. It's from a musical from the 1950's.
  6. The teacher in the movie, "Nicholas Nickleby"?
  7. This is another one: A boy fell into an icy river and was paralyzed and was kept in bed. Two birds come to his window that is open and sing to him, and then fly away. He looks over to a friend of his and says, "Spring?"
  8. Here's another one for you: "It was beauty that killed the beast."
  9. What movie does this quote come from: "My daddy is going away. But he will return some other day."
  10. Gary Cooper? He injured his abdomen to where it was hard for him to ride a horse.
  11. I disagree with what was said that Lucy didn't have what it took to be a top star in hollywood like Bob Hope, Irene Dunne, etc. It was because of her movie roles that she got the part of Lucy on the I Love Lucy show. She was a great comedianne. Recently, I saw her in a musical and she impressed me alot as she had a beautiful singing voice. Even though she was not "billed" as a top star, her acting stands out to me as very memorable.
  12. Lucy can sing- better in movies than in the I Love Lucy TV shows. She really had a beautiful voice, and she could dance too. She should have done more of this in the movies. On TCM it was said that Lucy was only given secondhand roles in movies, but she gave her all in what she did. I thoroughly agree, as her acting really shines, (and in my opinion, it stands out sometimes over other actors and actresses.) In the movie, "The Long, Long Trailer", Lucy and Ricky get into an argument over the directions she gave him. She says, "You want to make a right here left". I understand what she is saying
  13. A Farewell To Arms (1931) has romance during World War 1.
  14. I have one for you: Who said this, and in what movie? "Peace.Peace".
  15. What about Louise Beavers? She is someone that you don't hear of. She is one of my favorite Black actresses for her roles in 1934's Imitation of Life and 1942's Holiday Inn. Rochelle Hudson also comes to mind.
  16. Walter Matthau would be one at the top of my list. I don't like how he comes across on the screen and I don't like the sound of his voice and how he says his words. I don't know what the film directors and the producers saw in him to make him a star. They chose the wrong person, I think.
  17. Shirley Temple is a special actress, when she was a little girl. There's nothing about her that I don't like. A whole month of her films would be great! Warren William would be my second star . His romance scenes with Claudette Colbert in Imitation of Life and with Joan Blondell in Gold Diggers of 1933; his voice and the music in the background , (they don't make movies like these anymore). I feel tears coming to my eyes, so I better stop. To me, these are heartwarming scenes.
  18. For some time I watched another movie channel, but they showed the same movies over and over again, and some of them weren't fit to watch. Then I saw that Turner Classic Movies was added onto the cable in my area and I was so glad and thrilled about it being on. I have really enjoyed the movies that they show because alot of them I have never seen before. There are some movies from about 20 to 30 years ago that TCM shows that I don't like, but they are few and far between. I like that they show alot of MGM's movies. There were alot of real good actors and actresses that came from this studio.
  19. Probably why they are on so late is because it's dark outside and it's quiet indoors, ( the perfect ingredients to get people scared).
  20. I think the name of the song you are looking for is That's Entertainment.
  21. There is a movie that was made in the 40's that starred Tyrone Power and it was about the Pony Express. Amazon.com has this movie in the Westerns genre.
  22. Two movies that come to mind are Casablanca(1942), and A Star Is Born, with Judy Garland(1954). Some Elvis movies were done in nightclubs. The movie, With A Song In My Heart, with Susan Hayward, was done in a nightclub.
  23. On The Town, with Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra is one. Singin In The Rain may be another. The Bishop's Wife, with Loretta Young, Cary Grant and David Niven, (the scene where Cary and Loretta are skating on the ice in Grand Central Park. King Kong, (the 1933 version), may have been made in New York City). Imitation of Life, (1934), with Claudette Colbert, where she and a man who is in love with her is standing outside her home. The Brooklyn Bridge is seen in the background. West Side Story may have been made in New York City. The movie, The Pride of the Yankees, with Gary Cooper, may have bee
