  1. Well, I could have missed it of course, but I thought since That's My Boy, a 1932 film from Columbia was making it's TCM premiere (Ben didn't say it was a premiere, but it has to be, right?) I thought I would see one fairly long thread on the film I sure hope it's a sign of more early Columbia pics finally showing up on TCM, after many years of no new titles. Picture is sharp, but...I noticed it seemed to distort, as the camera panned . Was wondering if it was just me (I don't have a HD TV) or if anyone else noticed this. too tired to watch the whole movie, but 30 minutes in, seems
  2. but bubba ain't no racist! https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/bill-clinton-told-ted-kennedy-obama-coffee-years-game-change-article-1.197492 Joe Biden, worked just great with fellow Democrat senators who were racists... https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/19/politics/joe-biden-senate-segregationists-civility/index.html
  3. I'd be surprised if any democrat wasn't pro-pedophile sound stupid? Yep, just as stupid as your comment above. You know nothing as to why anyone would support him,(who needs jobs?) but attacking every one of his supporters just means, Trump wins in 2020. Guess that's what you want.... I love how a non-Reagan fan (I don't like him, saw him in Bedtime for Bonzo only!) felt compelled to post this...for what purpose? This is beyond idiotic, but hey...I MUST tell everyone this!!!! most of the actors you see in movies from the 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50s would be called racist
  4. I agree! I really enjoy his intros, and the long "outros" if that's a word. You really feel his love of film , his passion when he talks about them. While Robert Osborne was a bit more low key, you were so keenly aware of his sheer love of films, big and small.
  5. Well, they ran the Pitts and Todd short Catch-As Catch-Can (Bad sound for a couple of minutes) during one of the Robert Osborne Interviews(forget which one) several other shorts , have no idea if they are running the same shorts after the same interviews today (just seeing this today after copying the different interviews....)
  6. Exactly. He was clearly a private man.....and you could tell a thoroughly decent man. His love of film was infectious. He made me want watch more classics. I have recorded hundreds if not thousands of films off of TCM, and when I put one on, I am always sorry to see he isn't doing an intro to a film. So weird , my Dad mentioned him just last night, and I looked Robert up and saw nothing new. I still was hoping he would return..... TCM survives of course, but it just won't see the same without him.... Perhaps TCM, as a tribute, could run an hour of just his intros...I'd watch an hour a wee
  7. Gee, I thought it was a pretty decent duet, very natural... I read that after Columbo died , his family kept the info from his elderly mother for the rest of her life. Just said that he was on the road, touring overseas......
  8. On her credits page, it says Chorine (uncredited) for Broadway Thru a Keyhole. Amazing that whatever tiny role she had in this film, she was the lead actress opposite Edmund Lowe in Let's Fall in Love (It's been on TCM a few times) the very same year!
  9. Just saw that myself Musicalnovelty...has TCM ever run any of the Boy Friends shorts before, that you know of????

I am a big fan of Child star Virginia and so have just about all her child films. I also have several very rare original scene stills from OUTSIDE THESE WALLS. > Well, the good news is that it's a Columbia film, so there's a chance they may show it at some point on TCM. Probably like many rare Columbia films, it will air at 7 AM!
  12. > {quote:title=ginnyfan wrote:}{quote} > Musical:I don't know where the short was available. The guy on youtube recorded it handheld and we know he got it somewhere. Some of the Virginia clips on youtube appear to have been posted by Warner as promotional material for DVDs. I find the short fascinating because even though she's only the foil for Withers' bit she seems to be having a good time. It's also, to my knowledge, the last time the public ever sees Virginia on film. After this it's only her stage act and three weeks on Broadway in November. > ....People have to go th

Was it an extra on a DVD of some Warner Bros. movie? Does anyone know? Some digging on the web took me to Amazon, it's on the DVD San Antonio!

  14. Racketbuster, some interesting titles there! I have *Search For Beauty*....really amazing! Even some male butts are briefly seen(I closed my eyes and thankfully it was over! ) Toby Wing does a very sexy dance in her teddy on top of a table, Ida Lupino is a very young blonde(but doesn't show much) and some gals in the locker room are wearing similarly scanty outfits...also on the expensive set is *Murder at the Vanities* which I read somewhere(So it has to be true!) was the last film released before the code was really enforced...and it's about sexy a pre code as is out there. Not just the o

I want it too, but $39.99 for half a season??? 15 more shows for pt 2, will it cost basically $80 to get the first season?(save some sale) If so, they will no doubt say sales don't warrant putting out future seasons.
