  1. Oooooops!!! That's right. Must've been half asleep...
  2. The Letter 1929 w/Jeanne Engels which was remade as Dark Victory is finally available as an official release by the Warner Archives!!! [www.wbshop.com|http://www.wbshop.com]
  3. This must be too good to be true!! Arguably, the greatest Pre-Code of all time, The Story of Temple Drake is scheduled on TCM on 9/14 @8pm est.
  4. Heads Up!!! TCM is saluting Hal Roach every Wednesday in January: Highlights are 33 Silent Our Gangs, all 6 Harry Langdon Roach shorts, 13 Charley Chase shorts half of which have yet to air, all 40 Laurel & Hardy sound shorts along with most of their features, 6 Taxi Boys shorts, most of which I believe have yet to air and much, much more!!! Thank you TCM!!! This is truly a holiday gift from heaven!!!

    Thelma Todd Day

    Thelma Todd Day was great!!! Thank you TCM. Dollar Dizzy and Hi C's were nice surprises. My only suggestion would have been that instead of showing the Joe E Brown features, Horse Feathers, Monkey Business and Bohemian Girl (Thelma only had a quick cameo) because they've aired some many times lately, would have been to show more shorts like Love Fever with the Boyfriends, a Harry Langdon or two, the other 3 Chase shorts and more Pitts/Kelly. But all in all this was a real gift from TCM!!!
  6. No Problem. Here's The schedule: 30 Monday 6:00 AM Broadminded (1931) A rejected suitor leaves town and gets mixed up in an international chase. Cast: Joe E. Brown, Ona Munson, Bela Lugosi.

  7. Finally!!!! An entire day on Thelma Todd! Shorts with Charley Chase (Dollar Dizzy, Hi C's, Pip From Pittsburg and more!), Zasu Pitts and Patsy Kelly. Features. Everything! Clear out the DVR! All I can say is, "It's about time!". Love you TCM!! Edited by: TODDFAN on May 25, 2010 9:10 AM
  8. The TV movie on Thelma Todd starring Loni Anderson was a travesity. Don't waste your time or money. It was based on a book that didn't have one word of truth in it.
  9. On closer examination, these won't be out until summer and fall. On well. I've waited this long.....
  10. It doesn't look as if they're available to order yet, but I'll keep checking. Thanks.
  11. They look great, but are these German sets with another region code and how would you go about ordering them?
  12. Apparently, it must have been my cable company. This is the 3rd time I've missed my chance on this film. Can't win.
  13. Just great!! God knows when and if this'll air again......
  14. Did anyone else notice a black out signal about 18 minutes in on today's showing of Between Two Worlds? I've been waiting for this film to air again because I missed it last time and I get a several minute blackout!!!
  15. Finally watched Vol 1 and while I'm thrilled to finally have these films, the only true noir was Two of a Kind and did enjoy that one. I would definitely recommend Vol 2 over Vol 1 hands down. Hopefully more of these volumes will follow, especially if they're with Cleo Moore!
  16. Just got through Volume 2. A word of warning: You can't access Women's Prison unless you click on scene one of the scene selections. Anyways, to me, Night Editor was the best of the volume followed by One Girl's Confession (great Cleo Moore film noir!). Over-Exposed, while not really a film noir was great to have as it is an intriguing drama and Women's Prison is well...a women's prison picture. Loved it and thrilled to have this as a commercial release! Will watch Volume 1 tonight. Edited by: TODDFAN on Feb 10, 2010 3:44 PM
  17. Yes, those eco-friendly dvd cases feel as if they'll fall apart any minute....Anyways, I should be done watching the rest in a day or so.
  18. Just received the 2 volumes. The transfers were great. The only minor complaint is the studios seem to be using more shoddy dvd cases than ever before. Just finished watching Night Editor. Beautiful transfer. Love Janis Carter! Wish there were more film noirs with her. I have a few but still looking for I Love Trouble, The Mark of the Whistler and The Woman on Pier 13.
  19. Here's another film that I was wondering if TCM ever aired: The Monster and the Girl (1941) w/Ellen Drew, Robert Paige, Onslow Stevens and Paul Lukas. It's amazing that this film got away with it's white slavery and prostitution theme!! All this and a killer gorilla to boot!

  20. Thanks so much to everyone for all the great responses. Hopefully this gem will air again soon. For now, all I have is a VHS copy to hold me. And, yes, the drum solo is great as is Ella Raines. Alan Curtis (remember Buck Privates?) was someone to root for. Also, I believe the scene in the club with the cuban dancer was an inspiration to Jim Carrey when he did "The Mask" !
  21. Can anyone tell me if TCM has ever run Phantom Lady w/Ella Raines, Franchot Tone and Alan Curtis? I don't seem to recall if it has because it is a great noir!
  22. Thanks. Several people have contacted me and it doesn't seem as if this films aired within the last 5 years-at least! Luckily since then, I have been helped out in regards to these films. Hopefully though, TCM will air these on a new tribute to her.
  23. I was wondering. Have any of Kay Francis' great early Paramounts been shown on TCM like 24 Hours, Behind the Make-up, Let's Go Native, etc. I'm a big fan of hers and am desperately trying to collect all her films. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  24. Thanks ziggyelman. Got it!
  25. Thanks Moodri. Much appreciated!
