  1. They should just call it "Groovy Day", cos that's what it is!!! WOW!!!! First, man, I go away for a few days and return needing sunglasses on the one hand and magnifying glasses on the other! Woah to the dude!! Hope everyone has been grooving along to SUTS this year! I missed coming in to shout it out for some coolio 30's flix that were aired during Clark "The King" Gable's day and Bette Davis' day!!! I did groove to 'em or have 'em on the trusty DVR to groove to when I catch my breath. But...wow! This Thursday it's all about snap-crackle-poppin' Glenda Farrell, wise-crackin' d
  2. Oh my gosh...I'm SO sorry to hear of the passing of this wonderful person! I didn't notice this thread or hear anything about this earlier! And I haven't read the entire thread even yet, just shocked to hear of this. I always loved Kyle's posts, he will be missed SO much. Rest in peace, Kyle, my main man.
  3. JC, thank you for sharing your excitement for Ramon Novarro day on Thursday!!!! It's looking so awesome!! No worries on the multiple threads! The more the merrier when it comes to honoring Ramon and the opportunity to dig on silent and early talkie flicks!!!
  4. Whistlingypsy, thank you very much for that link!!! Cool!!! Fred, I agree, the 7th will be a pretty rad day!
  5. > {quote:title=twinkeee wrote:}{quote}There were many funny lines in this movie. One in particular that stood out was when Mary Bolan's husband hadn't shown up for a Dinner Party she was giving. Her excuse she was giving to the guests was that maybe he is "Possibly on the phone with the King or possibly with > " the MAYOR of Canada" ! > > tWINK > Twinkee, OMG, that was so hilarious! So many great "throwaway" lines like this one, you nearly miss them!! I was soooooooo howling with laughter and glee with this flick!!! Such a groovalicious joy!
  6. O-M-G!!! Fred, my man, you called it with this flick!!! I was totally digging on all Mary Boland's flix on Sunday, but this one, wow!!! I couldn't watch it on Sunday, so I fired it up from the DVR last night, after a super duper quadruple pooper crazy day at work, and man, it was the right tonic for what ailed me!!! I had seen it before, but for some reason it really resonated for me this time!! Sentimental in all the right places, but man, it literally had me rolling on the floor, doubled over with laughter in many, many spots!!! OMG! Everyone was awesome!! Charles Laughton was ac
  7. Up for silents and early talkies? Who isn't? You will be totally rockin' and rollin' this Thursday, Aug 8th when Ramon Novarro gets his turn in the SUTS spotlight!!! It's a pretty rad day and there isn't much to add to the schedule for the day, posted below! Lovin' a day filled with silents and early talkies and some early 30's flix!!! That's the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it!!! Thanks for the grooves, TCM!!! Dig it!!! h4. 8 Thursday h1. 6:00 AM h2. [Prisoner Of Zenda, The (1922)|http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/15405/Prisoner-Of-Zenda-The/] In this silent film, a vacationi
  8. Groovy SUTS Nuggets---Freddie Mac Day-Aug 7!!! Freddie Mac is being honored with his very own SUTS day this Wed, Aug 7, and there are some groovy nuggets during the day I simply must give a shout out to!!! Too bad none of his 1930s flix show up during the day...maybe something for TCM to work on for another time, eh? Those would have been totally rad to see, but as it is there are some coolio noir and comedy flix to check out!!! Starting at 6am, Freddie shows up with Jean Arthur and Melvyn Douglas in TOO MANY HUSBANDS (1940)!!! Then at 7:30am, gotta groove it to Marlene Dietrich and
  9. My man, Fred, thank you very much for the link to that article!!! Totally rad!
  10. This flick rocks!!!! A gem amidst a day filled with gems!!! Mary Boland is so cool!
  11. And now, Mary is mixing it up with none other than Laurel and Hardy in NOTHING BUT TROUBLE (1944)!!! So coolio!!! Groovy gems coming up next: DANGER--LOVE AT WORK (1937)!!! With Jack Haley and Ann Sothern!!! RUGGLES OF RED GAP (1935)!!! A hoot and a half with Charles Laughton and Charlie Ruggles!!! My man Fred started up a thread about this gem, it's awesomely funnilicious!!! Then a flick I've never seen before, the 1933 THREE CORNERED MOON!!! With Claudette Colbert and Richard Arlen!!!! And through it all, lovely Mary Boland is a tripalicious hoot!!!! Diggin' it
  12. Lavenderblue, thank you so much for chiming in!!! I agree with you about Herbert Marshall and May Robson in SOLITAIRE MAN!!! This flick totally rocks, IMO, and it hasn't even shifted into high gear (that happens when they get on the plane!!). Also features my main man, Lionel Atwill!!!! Woohooo!!! This is totally rock and roll!! And a joy delight!!
  13. Calvin, you are totally knocking it out of the park with your reviews!!!! Wow!!! They are SO awesome!!! I also came across your reviews on selected titles on imdb a while back and thought, "Wow, I "know" her from TCM!!!"!!! Not only are your reviews out of control, but the flix you are reviewing are totally awesome too!!! Many rare ones there too!!!! Thank you very much for sharing your reviews with us here!!! Totally awesome!!
  14. Totally grooving hard to today's lineup featuring Mary Boland!!!! Especially right now, the pre-code flick, THE SOLITAIRE MAN from 1933, totally rocks the house!!! Hope others are digging it too!!
  15. Monthly grooves on hiatus for August, and I already mentioned Sun, Aug 4 in my last weekly of July, but man, I gotta give a shout out to TCM and to Mary Boland and her flix for her Summer Under The Stars spotlight, 24 hours of her flix!!! An example of a performer/contributor who is not that well known, and outside of hard core classic movie circles, probably not known at all. It's SO cool when TCM does this, and I have to give hard props to them for this day! The entire schedule is pasted below for your groovy consideration, but I want to particularly shout it out for some flix that will be
  16. Rock it!!! I totally grooved hard to this flick and that day as well!!! Glad to hear you also did!!
  17. Sans Fin, you are one of the most influential posters on the board! I totally dig hearing of the flix you are interested in and checking them out if I'm able to. I have to say that I love this forum in support of the channel on the dial I love the most!!! Clearly a lot of posters here are incredibly knowledgeable, and contribute this knowledge, insight and perspective, freely shared with all. There are well researched and informative posts throughout these boards, and always a joy and pleasure to read! I don't often have the time to comment, and definitely not the time to give it the
  18. BOOM! Wish I had the day off! This is one of those guilty pleasure type of days where I would close the drapes, turn off phones (I do this anyway on days off when watching TCM flix!!), and just totally lose myself in the grooviness of the flix on the telly!!! I've seen all these flix 500 zillion times, but it doesn't matter. Most are just pure groovaliciousness!!! Bogie baby. It's what it's all about.
  19. She's really something, isn't she??? Just watching her now in the 1937 version of MADAME X. For my money, this is the best of the versions, and it's largely because of Gladys!!! My main man Warren William is also in this one, and he's great too, of course---though his character seems like an off-beat hoot when you think of his pre-code wolf roots!!! Gladys George really shines in an understated way, as she typically does in her flix! Really dig her!!
  20. > {quote:title=tcmsnumberonefan wrote:}{quote}Please tell me that we'll hear from you on Glenda Farrell day. Oh yeah!!! you can make book on that!!! For my wise-crackin' love, Glenda Farrell, it's be there or be square!!
  21. Woah!!! This totally rox the house, gagman!! Thank you for the news!!!
  22. Wow, this was a gem I'd not seen before but thanks to my peeps at TCM I was able to totally groove hard to this character study with an edge! Everyone has baggage here, lots going on, starring Dan Duryea, Cornell Wilde (who also directed), Steven Hill, Jean Wallace, Dennis McCloud!!! Taut, somewhat claustrophobic, noir-ish/crime flick, but more of a character study than anything else! I'm totally stoked that I caught this flick!!! Anyone else dig it?
  23. Thanks for the awesome review, Tom!!! I totally dig on this flick!!
  24. TCM Flix To Groove Hard To!! Mon, July 29-Sun, Aug 4!!! Hope everyone enjoys the final days of July and is having a totally groovin' summer!! Enjoying TCM Flix and Summer days and nights! The final week of July kicks it off hard on Monday, July 29 at 6am with Greta Garbo her own bad self starring with Charles Boyer and Reginald Owen in CONQUEST (1937)!!! Then up at 1:30pm, it's Eddie G doing an outstanding turn in DR EHRLICH'S MAGIC BULLET (1940)!!! If you never thought Eddie G could do anything but gangsters, gotta check this one out! One of the finest actors ever shows it off
