  1. 42nd Street is on Wednesday's schedule. It actually plays early Thursday morning, 1:30 AM. It's a great favorite of many. Good music. "You're Getting To Be A Habit With Me" for example. A good one to record!
  2. Pal Joey is on the horizon. Good actors, excellent music! "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" is one of my favorites! Can't wait to see this production again!
  3. Good News was certainly good news for a late-September musicfest. I love "Little Things Mean A Lot" and June Allyson has been my "girl next door" since I was young. Bravo for this typically fine performance!
  4. What a wonderful movie! Sitting alone in my living room in front of the television, I wanted at the end to stand and clap! Fabulous!

    What a Sunday night treat! The Mating Game! Wonderful roles played by entire cast. Brilliant performance by Paul Douglas as "Pops". Great Cole Porter song, "Ive Got You, Under My Skin". Quite a treat for those of the 'Class of '59'!
  6. The "Carioca" number was fantastic. Astire, as always, was brilliant. The wing-dancing show girls were a bit much, as was the "marriage bailout" at the end. My grades for this film were; Acting...A Music....B Storyline..D All-in-all, the performances of Del Rio, Raymond, Roulien, Rogers, and Astair plus the music of "Orchids in the Moonlight" and Carioca made this 1933 film enjoyable.
  7. Hi Rusty6 from Big D! Welcome to the tcm forums. I look forward to reading your thoughts about classic film. Lots of interesting stuff on here. It's good reading while you're not watching.
  8. Amen, Brad! Lana is at her most beautiful best in "The Postman Always Rings Twice"! If you saw it for the first time, just wait until you see it twice! Fantastic!
  9. Ah, patful, let's not miss it! It was on one morning over the Memorial Day holiday. Several brilliant performances in this classic! I feel that I was alive back after the turn of the century (19th to 20th...not the recent "turn"). Yes, "let us all be together" again when Merry Little Christmas is sung! 3:30 PM Eastern- July 4th, it's a date! Thanks for the remind!

    World War II Films

    Watched "Very Thought of You" today. Not so much a "war movie" but a movie about a time of war. Both Dennis Morgan and Elenor Parker were excellent, along with an outstanding support cast. Really like the title song, "The Very Thought of You." Enjoyed an afternoon of viewing!
  11. The threads about your favorite musical and/or your favorite music in a musical were all very interesting. They make me want to see them all again...soon! As you preview the upcoming TV schedule and make note of a favorite that will be playing soon, let us know in this thread. We don't want to miss it!!! One of my very favorites, and a favorite I am sure of most people, "My Fair Lady" is scheduled for 3:00 PM EDT on July 7th. I'll be at work at that hour, but my VCR will be humming with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison center-screen. Such favorites as "Wouldn't It Be Loverly", "With A Littl
  12. Welcome, tabbie! I'm new here, too, but not to the wonderful world of musicals! You and I share similar tastes. "It Has To Be Taught" convey's such a great lesson! I've seen South Pacific, oh maybe 70 times, and like many others, I supposed, even acted in it. It's my all-time choice, I suppose!
  13. Great post, Kinston. Reading your paragraph of tribute to the great Ms Garland has made me misty-eyed. Thank goodness we have her films to preserve her memory for the future. My two young grandsons, ages 6 and 4 have already fallen in love with "Dorothy". Yes, she certainly is close by even today...just Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Thanks for your post.
