  1. I agree that TV today - you flip thru channel after channel and wonder how they stay on - is not the best. TCM can be the beacon - here it goes: Give me the classics: James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, The Duke, Screwball comedies, yeah even Charlie Chan mysteries, Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone. Mix it up, we all love Casablanca and Yankee Doodle Dandy, but show us something else like the Roarin' 20's (Cagney/Bogart), The early "Road" pictures with Hope & Crosby, Abbott & Costello. I remember a movie I saw on the Late Show one night called "The Next Voice You Hear" it truly s
  2. I remember when I was a kid watching the old Late Show on Channel 2 on Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday afternoons was either Abbott & Costello or Tarzan with Johnny Weissmuller. I also remember sitting with my entire family one night and watching the "Diary of Anne Frank" on our 13" black and white TV (I was about 10 years old) back in 1963.

  4. All About Eve, The Letter and The Virgin Queen. I agree with the person who posted that some of her early work has been pretty much ignored and I, for one, would love to see her early work (30's and 40's) possibly presented in a Bette Davis film festival. There is one in particular I saw on the public television station years ago, The Bride Came C.O.D., with Jimmy Cagney. It was a screwball romantic comedy - I got a kick out of watching 2 of the best dramatic actors going at it in a farce. It seemed to me that they were having great fun in the picture, there was good chemistry and perfect com
