  1. Sounds like Drums in the Deep South (1951) with James Craig and Barbara Payton.
  2. Yeah, I waited a long time to purchase these, but it's the only way you can get some of the movies; although Kino Lorber is slowly making some of them available on Blu-ray. What's crazy is the Universal Westerns sets have all been on bonafide pressed discs, not burned. The Douglas Sirk set is MOD. I just wish the manufacturers would own their mistakes and respond!
  3. I haven't seen the clip you're talking about, but it definitely sounds like Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. (not Jr.) to me. I can envision him with his hands on his hips, raring his head back laughing heartily from any one of his swashbucklers of the early-to-mid '20s (e.g., The Mark of Zorro, The Three Musketeers, Robin Hood, The Thief of Baghdad...take your pick). If you want, you can pull him up on IMDb, and go through each one of those movies. There's lots of still pictures associated with each to browse. Happy hunting!
  4. Can anyone please tell me if TCM offers an exchange program for defective discs from their Vault Collections? It's become monotonous and tiring having to continually order replacements from the vendor only to receive more defective sets. I've already gone through four sets of the Western Horizons: Universal Westerns of the 1950s, and every single time, the Backlash and Saskatchewan discs come in covered in white splotches that cause the movies to freeze during playback. Last night, I was watching The Tarnished Angels from my Douglas Sirk set, and it totally skipped the last 12 minutes of t
  5. Robert Osborne was my hero. No one in the world inspired my love of movies quite like he did, with his folksy, knowledgeable, all-encompassing passion and love for films. I’m now an uber-fan of all things old (not always classic) Hollywood, from the glossiest, all-star, big budget, Technicolor extravaganzas of MGM to the shoddiest, no-talent, shoestring budget, Poverty Row oaters made by Victor Adamson, and, in large part, I have Mr. Osborne to thank for that. I first discovered him around 1994, when my mom got satellite TV; and I got to enjoy and learn from him for more than 20 years! Whe
  6. Jattok, I'm sorry you had issues with your viewing. I guess my eyes aren't keen enough to notice the brightness issues. Twelve of us from church went to see this, and it was AWESOME on the big screen! Thanks TCM! Please do this more often.
  7. Thanks, Tall Paul. We finally bought the tickets in bulk at the next closest theater because our church community group didn't want to miss getting the same time/location. As for the other poster who asked "who cares?", if it was directed to me: I DO; otherwise, I wouldn't have posted it.
  8. Fossil Creek and Ridgmar are our alternate locations we'd go to, but Hulen Movie Tavern is just a couple blocks from where we are so were hoping to go there - if it is really going to be showing the movie, that is.
  9. I want to purchase tickets at a local theater to see Casablanca on March 21st, but the theater people don't know anything about it and it's not listed on their website. The link for the event lists the theater (Hulen Movie Tavern in Fort Worth), but Fandango doesn't. How do I go about verifying if this theater really is showing this movie? I'm not getting any cooperation from the theater folks either by phone or in person. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  10. There are a few good movies from the 50s that treat Indians right without the cussing...but like the others said, only a few. I'll have to think on that one today, but I know I have a few laying around. In the meantime, just go to Wal-Mart and buy a few of the cheap $1 DVDs of THE LONE RANGER. Though subjected to the villains' bigotry sometimes, Tonto is never portrayed in a demeaning light by the writers.
  11. I can only recall seeing two shorts with chimps or some other kind of monkeys in the lead role. The first is Chuck Jones' rare step into live action called ORANGE BLOSSOMS FOR VIOLET from 1952. Look it up on IMDb for a synopsis. It's also available on Volume 2 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection. The other short (which I believe is one of the ones you're looking for) was called DANGEROUS DAPPER DAN and had the monkeys riding around on dogs back in the Old West. It's one of a series of shorts called Monkeyshines from Columbia in 1931. They're in the same vein as the Dogville Comedy s
  12. We started a small discussion about this last year: http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?messageID=7844747
  13. That would be AMBUSH from 1949. It plays every so often on TCM, so good luck.

    Well, shucks. I'm sorry that didn't pan out. Chuck's helped me on a few pointers as well, but he seems to stay buried in his work. Part of his house even flooded last year. Good luck on your hunt.
  15. Not at all...the original GODZILLA is an ominous film of death and destruction and man's fight against an enemy he helped create. This is accentuated by composer Akira Ifukube's score and the numerous gruesome death scenes scattered throughout the film. Also, the life's of the main characters are very tragic, with a love triangle at the root of it all. MOTHRA, on the other hand, is an upbeat story not designed to convey a warning message like GODZILLA. The plot's interludes are filled with comedic outtakes, and the film has a "happy ending." The score is light-hearted, and the title mo
