  1. This is a very interesting topic...and there were several "event" movies that are probably lost to time because they were made for TV.. Here's one.."Love Among the Ruins"..a total delight..probably as good as anything in the theater at the time..it starred Olivier and Hepburn in their first pairing and was directed by Cuckor..I have a "store bought" video..but wish it was on DVD.. And how about these? "Seven in Darkness" "Dr. Cook's Garden" "The Over the Hill Gang"
  2. I've mentioned on this thread before that I have lunch with Dale Robertson about twice a week..I have enought stories on this particular picture to write a book
  3. I am in the entertainment media..have to see pretty much every picture that comes out..most of them an endurance test..but have finally landed on a gem.."The Astronaut Farmer." Truly one of those that they "don't make 'em like they used to.." It is a very 70s movie, with lots of character and a terrific "lump in your throat" script. It is not mean spirited or crude or sardonic. There are no bad words or burps or other bodily emissions Now, it's a very low budget picture..I think someone told me around $12-$13 million..so it might make its money back..but the people who belly ache all the time about there not being true family picture to see should storm the theater..
  4. I have watched "Clockwork Orange" in the past month and it is still a stunner..there hasn't been a picture released in many many years that can touch it
  5. I worked on a newspaper for a long time..so I always loved a Jack Webb picture called "-30-" that I haven't seen since about 1975.. Now I'm a PR flack..so, if course, it's "Sweet Smell of Success."
  6. I had the great privilege of having dinner with him in 2002..he was failing somewhat but a very articulate and gracious man..who allowed me to wear him out with questions..wanna hear a bit of trivia about him..he is married to a Hammerstein..as in Rodgers and..That was the ocassion that caused our interaction, the opening of the latest version of "Oklahoma!" on broadway
  7. Probably looked forward to this picture more than any other this year..I had read the book and the movie package of Soderburgh and Clooney made it look like a gem.. I watched an Oscar screener of the picture and it is a total, unequivocal dud. Warner's didn't even screen it for local media in this market. Major league disappointment.
  8. One of my all time favorites.."Green For Danger" is out this week on a Criterion DVD..I would LOVE to see "The Green Man" again..that is a jewel that the old USA network used to run all the time..wish that St. Trinian's was on DVD.. How about this great Alistair Cook picture.."The Ruling Class?"
  9. "Five Against the House" is an all time sleeper..without looking it up, I remember in it was a very young Alvy Moore..Mr. Kimball from "Green Acres" Is it Phil Karlson?
  10. It was a letterboxed version on Sundance. I dvr'd it and burned a DVD.
  11. I set up for last week's day of "Ealing" pictures and when I finally got a chance to look at them today there were several of the pictures that bled through the schedule.. Anybody else have that problem?
  12. Just the opposite..I think it's better than ever..there is certainly room on this channel for letterboxed prints of modern favorites and "lost pictures"..I was thrilled to see "Still of the Night" on the other night..and the next month's schedule finds others of that ilk.. You just keep on with what you're doing TCM!!!!!!
  13. He made a barely released picture with Jackie Gleason called "Mr. Billion" that I wish TCM would air
