    Well now you do have me very curious about this movie you mentioned, which happens to be a silent movie entitled The Lost World from back in (1925) I have just placed a suggestion to TCM to perhaps consider showing this movie sometime in the not to far future. I do hope this is a possibility because I would like to see it. Thanks for this title I would have never known otherwise. Now we will all have to simply wait and see what happens? ~Angel~
  2. SouthParkFan8000 This information is for you and for any one else in the mood to see another horror movie entitled "The Hills Have Eyes." Well I do have some great news to tip you off with today. It appears there will very soon be a new release of this movie entitled "The Hills Have Eyes." Many of you horror fans might already know there was a 2006 TV showing of this movie. Which was done quite well as far as horror movies go. Yes, it too had a far out, but still a bit believable story line. The extreme make up on these mutants was really done well, by the way! This latest number 2 movie, "The Hills Have Eyes II " is promising to be a continued story from where the last version left off. It should be arriving at your local movie theaters early in February 2007. So very soon now! Die hard fans should start checking for this one now. I know all other versions had lots of blood and violence, but some great make up artists I must add too! ~Angel~
  3. A big "THANK YOU" to everyone that has helped to add to this fabulous collection of photographs here in the Gallery of Characters! Keep them coming they are great!
  4. I can't honestly say which was my most favorite "Alien" character in the movies gone by at this time? I can say, the one of a kind movie called Plan 9 was indeed a low budget movie and grossed very little cash at the box office. But I find it a great horror movie to watch, because of its continuous mistakes and hilarious unfortunate events throughout the entire movie. It's a classic because it was so very BAD! I truthfully enjoy seeing it each time it makes a return to TV. I find myself laughing a lot and feeling very silly as I watch this strange, but FUN and comically entertaining film. ~Angel~
  5. This is an excellent idea folks! But this has to happen soon, since Roger Moore isn't getting any younger or healthier. He is a very impressive actor. ~Angel~

  7. Showing on January 14th - You have to check this one out! "I Want To Live!" Coming soon on TCM! Originally released in the year (1958) This story is based on a tue story. It is about a lady from a small town that decides to turn bad! Who later on has the price to pay...with a desperate fight to escape her sentence to the gas chamber. This is an extremely well acted and directed true story and I suggest if you have never seen this one to make it a point to do so. This film is well worth your time. The cast includes a dynamic performance by: Susan Hayward, Simon Oakland, Theodore Bikel and its Director: Robert Wise

    That was a wonderful response to the post I just placed Bill, thanks for that! If I recall correctly the best scene with this wind blown effect would be while King Kong was on top of the highest point of the Empire Stare Building. I would think that was a direct attempt to hypnotize us audiences. This movie is such a fun film to remember for us all, it seems! It's such a classic! Angelx

    That's a great notable statement! Yes, I also think the added touch of the wind blowing King Kong's fur was really an awesome effect. In its time this was a creative effort to make this creature more alive and real to the mesmerized viewing audiences. I can't say this is my favorite movie of all time, but it is by far my favorite version of this storyline and movie all time. The credits are due where they rest. About the 1977 film, it was an all time waste of time and money for both the movie makers and the audience that paid to see it. (Like myself!) I think many of us were there out of pure curiosity. (Myself included!) The 2005 version was a little better and it was an entertaining version of the original movie. However, still never to compare closely to the wonderful 1933 film version, which still wins first prize as the best version of beauty and the beast. ~Angel~

    I must say, I couldn't have said it better! The 1933 version of King Kong is without a question an absolute true CLASSIC! We can't help but to respect this original version of this movie. After all there was very little to work with in the way of creating those great special effects in those days. No computerization, which is commonly used in about every film today. Making a movie back then was a real challenge. This alone is reason enough to appreciate and admire the hard efforts behind making this type of movie and the presentation it delivered to the silver screen. The story line at that time was indeed a first of its kind and well expressed with its drama, perfect characters and star himself King Kong. As we watch this same movie today, we still can feel those mixed emotions about the beast and his love for this never known before beauty. The facts are simple, the 1933 version of King Kong will always win the first prize! This version can never be beat, because it was so unique in its time. Everyone enjoys this entertaining extraordinary movie. ~Angel~

  12. movielover11: Yes, I too agree films with Vic Morrow are always done well. He is one fine actor! I am hoping TCM will treat us all someday to a day of his films. That is a great idea thanks. ~Angel~
  13. Hi SWfan: Yes, Vic Morrow was indeed the star in this most unusual and made for TV movie entitled "The Night That Panicked America." He played the main role character of Hank Muldoon. Here are some more added details about the stars found in this film and its writers and director. I mentioned in a past post that this movie was made in the year 1973. I must add that there has been two versions on the exact year 1973 and 1975. So until this movie is located again...we can take our own pick? Thanks SWfan! I sure hope this helps you out my friend. Directed by Joseph Sargent Writing credits Howard Koch (play) Nicholas Meyer (also story) Plot Outline: True story: Orson Welles puts on a radio version of an H.G. Wells novel, and people who miss the beginning think Martians are invading the Earth. General Critic Rating: 6.8/10 out of (176 votes) Cast (in credits order) complete (awaiting verification) Vic Morrow .... Hank Muldoon Cliff De Young .... Stefan Grubowski Michael Constantine .... Jess Wingate Walter McGinn .... Paul Stewart Eileen Brennan .... Ann Muldoon Meredith Baxter .... Linda Davis Tom Bosley .... Norman Smith Will Geer .... Reverend Davis Paul Shenar .... Orson Welles John Ritter .... Walter Wingate
  14. dennis214: I did some quick searching and found the movie you were asking about! This movie that got into those fun details on how "War of the Worlds" was put together was made in the year 1973 and entitled "Night That Panicked America." I understand it has not been put on DVD or up for rental. It was featured only on TV. Maybe we can talk TCM to someday show this informative and interesting movie? This movie was indeed considered a true gem and well worth seeing. So we need to put in a serious request in the suggestion box, for TCM to please try to present this movie to all of us curious individuals. Thanks again for calling this very different movie to my attention. I had to get right on this one and see what I could find and SUCCESS! Movie Title: "Night That Panicked America" Runtime: 92 min / USA:120 min (including commercials) Country: USA Language: English Color: Color Available only: TV. ~Angelx~
  15. dennis214: Thanks for the note! Sorry, I don't have the answer to this one? But perhaps, someone that does know will read this and follow up with their post? It sounds like something I might have seen many years ago? It was mostly a movie about the making of the original radio show that was entitled "War of the Worlds" in all its detail. Interesting stuff! I hope this happens to ring a bell with someone out there that can help us out here with the exact title? I would like to see it myself. Hey, does anyone out there have any feedback about this one? Thanks for any information you can provide. Dennis I want to say thank you for giving us all another movie to research. Sorry that I couldn't help on this title. oxox ~Angel~
