  1. If at least, TCM could dedicate an entire day showing her films I'd be happy with it. A documentary would be so much welcome as well. Ms. Sheridan is certainly one of my favourite Actors, Who could argue that she is so gorgeous as well? Some time ago, TCM chose Dennis Morgan as the star of the month, and you bet I was so thrilled about it. Never I thought he would have gotten the attention he deserves. Hopefully Ms. Sheridan will get the best treatment TCM can offer on her honour. I do look forward to it!
  2. Ms. Sullavan has always been a favourite of mine. Hopefully she can get 'The Star of the month' treatment, or at least a day devoted to her. And someone nice enough to make a documentary about her. I have seen poor copies of "Little Man, What Now?" and "So Red The Rose" even though I know they have been shown at festivals from pristine 35 millimeter prints. These should be available to the public on video. The one I would also like to see is, 'The Moon's Our Home." To my knowledge is has not been shown on TCM.
  3. Can't we concentrate on the topic at hand? These childish political statements should not belong here. About the film, I actually like it, usually I pop the dvd once in a while on a cold or rainy night and just immerse myself in the dramatic situations of the crew. The midget seems to be the only stable one of the whole lot. Edited by: josephherndz on Oct 23, 2013 5:09 PM
  4. I certainly agree with you Fred, but the one who comes to mind is Basil Rathbone. In Anna Karenina, he literally sucked out the life out of Greta Garbo's karakter,(as he is shouting to her) you can tell she is walking to her doom as she is banished from their home on the way out. He could have repeated his performance brilliantly in this film. Then again, almost any film by Josef Von Sternberg, is always welcome.
  5. The reason I enjoy watching this film is because of Edward Arnold & Peter Lorre, Actors I love very much from the Classic Cinema era. But the Films I prefer, and watch more often are the 1969 (Prestupleniye I Nakazaniye) by Lev Kulidzhanov with Georgi Taratorkin & Innokenty Smoktunovsky. The Mexican Film from 1951 (Crimen Y Castigo) by Fernando Fuentes with Roberto Ca?edo and Carlos L?pez Moctezuma. These are the versions I prefer, but, glad there are various filmed options to choose from.
  6. Personally, I love "old" films, and TCM is the only channel I tune to watch the classics. Silent films are the ones I love the most, and TCM is always there for me. Pre-code films, Handsome leading Men, Gorgeous Leading Ladies...heck, I could go on and on about why I love TCM forever. New films? there are countless channels to choose from.
  7. Welcome to the TCM Boards. The first time I watched Glory was in the mid-nineties, if I am not mistaken. My memory is kind of fuzzy, but I think it was a tribute to Margaret O'Brien. I taped the film and several other ones with her in them. By the way the film was a beautiful letterboxed print. Just keep checking the schedule for a future showing.
  8. I believe Joel add libbed the line just to annoy everyone here and turn us against Robert Osborne.
  9. mNot a regular poster on the forums, but the desire to contribute becomes less & less on my part because of these kind of (insane) threads. In the vast Universe of movie channels... TCM, is the one I love the most, and I do find some of the posters' demands to cater to their "needs" being downright rude and condescending. TCM is the only channel which plays the movies, we lovers of classic films would like to see. I cannot believe there are some malcontents complaining about their programming schedule. I am not one to voice my opinion on negativity, but this time, I felt c
  10. Being a fan of Robert Montgomery and to some extent to James Cagney, whilst VHS was the dominant format, I bought a colourised version of "They Were Expendable" I watched it a few times, love the film, not a fan of colourised movies, but I do not get on my soap box if anyone prefers them that way. Now upgraded to dvd, I enjoy it more in its original black & white format, as originally intended. So, this one is out there somewhere colourised as well.
  11. Just in case this has not been posted elsewhere. Amazon has the Garbo Collection For 19.99. http://www.amazon.com/Greta-Garbo-Signature-Collection-Christina/dp/B0009S4IJM/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1369601477&sr=1-1&keywords=gretagarbosignature+collection Edited by: josephherndz on May 26, 2013 3:50 PM
  12. Usually I don't post much on TCM, even though I visit the site everyday whilst drinking coffee. That said, I respect everyone's taste in films, but this sense of entitlement has to diminish, can't we just get along and enjoy watching what TCM shows on their channel? I love Silent films more than talkies, but I appreciate the variety and content the station provides. Also there are some malcontents as well among silent film fans who tend to belittle soundtracks and/or their composers on Silent films, and are very vocal and sometimes abusive in their opinions of them. Guess
  13. Yeah! Specially if the man in question is Joel McCrea....and for an added bonus throw in Tab Hunter no?
  14. As of today, that option is still not available. Perhaps the administrator can provide some information about it.
  15. Many thanks for the reply. I thought It was just my computer acting up. Will be checking back on it.
  16. Is anybody else having problems accessing the Trivia challenge? when I sign in, the countdown starts but, there is a black screen. This has been going on for more than a week.
  17. Two that came to mind. "The Story Of Mankind" and "Genghis Khan" I am sure I can think of more but, these two sure stand out with the cast in it.
  18. Excellent news all around, icing on the cake would have been the Spanish version from the Forties. I don't think is available with subtitles though. Raymond Bernard's is my favouite, I have to admit. Thank you TCM.
  19. Loving Classic films, I do not have any complaints about studios re-releasing previous titles. As it has been stated before, some folks do not have most of these movies in their Library. Hey gagman66, your key word about THE BIG PARADE was "apparently" can you be a little more specific about its release? Lamenting the DVD/BLU-RAY release of THE WIND, GREED and THE CROWD as well. I will cry for these films whilst watching them on VHS, and/or Laserdisc. Until then,(for these formats) popcorn and wine...a must.
  20. Well, filmlover, you have posted almost exactly my sentiments. I have seen and own copies of all the films shown so far, and was pleasantly surprised by the mixture of titles from Ms. Bergman. TCM has always been my favourite channel, and I am grateful for the variety of films shown, that otherwise would be gathering dust somewhere because no regular stations would touch. I have learned to appreciate what TCM offers, because I remember growing up reading about Classic films and seeing movie stills and posters of them, I could only dream about the day I could see as many as I could.
  21. In a perfect world, it would be nice to have Silent films scored by Carl Davis,(insert your favourite composer) but considering the amount of work involved...financial and/or legal issues that'd be a major obstacle. I am happy to have the released version by Image. The second copy I have is because I bought the Griffith box set from kino. Most of the time the scores are decent, but at any rate I welcome any Silent film released on video (heck!) even if it is mute. For anyone who has not seen "True Heart Susie". It would have been a nice choice for the Lillian Gish tribute. It is alway
  22. Thanks for the response gagman. The Criterion release is the one I have. I do have "The Love Of Jeanne Ney" agree it is an expectional film, and great cast it is especially Uno Henning. He is one of my favourite Actors. Also his role in " A Cottage On Dartmoor" is one of the best ones at the peak of silent films in my opinion.
  23. For many years I had the Louise Brooks documentary on VHS. When I bought the "Pandora's Box" DVD I got rid of it. I was dismayed to find out that is not complete. Does anyone know about this discrepancy?
  24. Indeed, Gabriel Figueroa is one of the best Directors of the Mexican cinema. a few months ago one of our local musems had a viewing of some of the films he photographed. I looked through my Mexican films on dvd, and found quite a list of them in my collection. Nazarin. Ansiedad. Flor Silvestre. Las Abandonadas. Bugambilia. Distinto Amanecer. La Perla. Historia De Un Gran Amor. Pueblerina. I have never seen a Mexican film on TCM. Do they get a broadcast with subtitles? None of the ones I own have subtitles though. And just found out John Gavin's is half Hispanic, learn s
  25. There are quite a few films made in the mid, late sixities worth watching. One of my favourites is "Pedro Páramo" with John Gavin and Pilar Pellicer. I had no idea Gavin is fluent in Spanish. I think Gaél Garcia-Bernal is at work on a remake, it makes me wonder how it will turn out. But I do agree, La Época de Oro del Cine Méxicano was already over by then. Dish Network offers two stations devoted to classic Mexican films, (De Pélicula and De Pélicula clasico) to me are the equivalent of TCM. No English subtitles though. X-(
