  1. The 1940 version of Swiss Family Robinson is available to watch on Disney +, along with the remake.
  2. I have that Cocktail Mix Vol 2. cd! I love it. I loved the lounge music trend of the 1990's. I have the Ultra-Lounge cd series as well, but I just listen to them on Spotify now.

  4. I read a LOT, mainly fiction and biographies/memoirs, most of the non-fiction that I read is either theatre or film related or self-help kinda stuff. The last couple of years have been very stressful with the some personal matters, and because of that, I find that I have been gravitating towards lighter choices in my reading, and re-reading some childhood favorites, like Trixie Belden mysteries (anybody else remember those?). The last few things I read that were film related were Joan Blondell's novel, Center Door Fancy (thinly disguised autobiography about her childhood as the daughter o
  5. > {quote:title=movieman1957 wrote:}{quote} > How old does anyone think Wright was playing? I'm guessing somewhere around 16. If that is the case that makes her relationship with Dave a little odd. I thought him to be mid 20s. Hope you all don't mind my jumping in here--Chris, I played Alexandra many years ago in a theatre production. The script states that she is 17 years old. BTW, the character of Alexandra's boyfriend was created for the film. There is no such character in the play, not even a reference to any sort of boyfriend for Alexandra. I always thought that Regina lik
  6. *CineMaven,* *On a happier note, is Ray's Pizza still there on about 14ths St and Seventh Avenue? I know there are more than one Ray's, but this was one of the definitive. Long lines around the corner (but well worth the wait), by the slice with gobs of cheese, and delicious. They used to be so busy they would would just throw the money against the glass. Cash register? No time for that, too many ravenous pizzafiles. It's been awhile since I had a slice---say, 25 years. :groan:* lafitte, my hubby and I ate at the Ray's Pizza in Greenwich Village 2 years ago when we were in NYC on vacat
  7. Yes, I completely agree, NZ--MacDonald and Chevalier are sizzling together in *The Merry Widow*. I also liked Nelson Eddy and Rise Stevens in *The Chocolate Soldier*. I guess that she was more of an opera star and that's why she didn't make more films? Either way, I found her to be lovely in voice and appearance. I wonder why MacDonald didn't make this film with Eddy? I watched several of the MacDonald-Eddy films when they were first released on VHS, but I really can't remember which ones that I saw! I have *New Moon* recorded on dvd from TCM-I'll have to check that one out. San
  8. I watched 2 Jeanette MacDonald films last night. I had recorded them off of TCM in 2006. The first film, BITTERSWEET, stars MacDonald as a well-to-do young woman who marries her voice teacher, played by Eddy. He is a budding composer and they move to his hometown of Vienna, Austria. The screenplay was based on a play by Noel Coward. According to Robert Osborne, Coward didn't like the screen adaptation, but the film did very well at the box office. The most interesting thing about BITTERSWEET was the appearance of George Sanders as an Austrian military man who puts the moves on Jeanette! H
  9. AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is FINALLY getting the special edition treatment! Hooray! Sandy K
  10. STELLA MARIS was one of the first Silent Sunday Nights films that I watched when I first got TCM. It's such a haunting and beautiful film. It really opened my eyes to the fact that Mary Pickford was actually quite a good actress. I wish they would show it again. Sandy K
  11. At my local Wal-Mart the other day, there were several dvds on sale for only 5 bucks! I picked up a copy of Roman Holiday. They also had Pillow Talk, A New Kind of Love, The Best Years of Our Lives. Plus some others that I can't remember... I also bought Fried Green Tomatoes there for only $7.50. Sandy K
  12. I liked the Mr. Bean tv series--very funny! But the feature film was terribly UN-funny. I don't think that I laughed once. Sandy K
  13. I didn't really like The Broadway Melody when I first saw it on VHS years ago. I found it to be very creaky and slow in parts. The only thing that I really liked was the performance of Bessie Love as Hank--she was so spunky and her acting was natural. I thought that Anita Page especially was not very believable in her acting. However, after I joined these boards a few years ago, some posters were discussing the film and the merits of Page, in particular. So, I took a second look the next time it was on TCM. I found that I could appreciate the film's place in the history of film musicals,
  14. Fantastic! I am especially grateful for a good transfer (hopefully) of Royal Wedding. Sandy K
