  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. Sorry, I guess they just did that last night...drat so far no more shorts....
  6. After the Norman Jewison interview last night, they ran the RKO short, One Live Ghost, with Leon Errol and Lucille Ball....that interview will be over very soon, so if you want to catch it (ASSUMING they run the same ones) They ran Catch-As Catch-Can after one of the interviews too (I'll update when I am not recording , which I am doing right now) EDIT, it was the Liza Minnelli interview, this short ran after, but.... that was an !:15 minute block, but tonight, it's only an hour long block, not enough time
  7. 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....)
  8. 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
  9. Many thanks!!! I have wondered for years who that was...I assumed it was later Sidney Bechet....
  10. I remember watching Agatha Christie's Marple: The Murder at the Vicarage (2004) (Had to look up his credits to figure out what show it was) and thinking...man, that actor looks familiar, but who is he? My late Mother was watching too, and usually was pretty good with putting names with faces, she didn't know either. Got such a kick when I saw the credits and saw Herbert Lom's name! He hadn't acted in a decade at that point, And I too thought he had passed on by then... I saw the movie below last year....awesome title that really had nothing to do with the film's subject matter. Felt like the f
  11. Staircase ran off and on on FMC for years....don't expect much. In fact, shockingly bad performances by both Burton and Rex Harrison....they play it like a tv comedy sketch from the 70's ...for 96 minutes....reviewers either love it or hate it on imbd.... go ahead, watch if you want to
  12. Funny, I never confuse Warner Baxter with anyone...he always seemed more serious than most actors of the 30s and 40's , and always looked a bit sick, I wonder if he didn't wear make-up in most of his films? there are 10 Crime Doctor films (I only have 9, so I assume TCM didn't run 1 of them?) TCM has at some point films such as, The Squaw Man, King of Burlesque(or FOX did ) Vogues of 1938, Wife, Husband and Friend, Earthbound, Adam Had Four Sons, State Penitentiary(his last film) and the others already mentioned above.I know this, cuz I copied them off on tcm and fox through the years ..
  13. kinda-sorta..... times are confusing, IMHO http://www.tcm.com/schedule/index.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-12-05

What I'm saying is that anybody in any particular race or ethnic group can speak for that race or ethnic group from their Viewpoint. However, people who are NOT in that race or that ethnic group have NO right to speak for that race or ethnic group. As if they know more about that race or ethnic group, than the people who are actually in that race or ethnic group know about themselves. In America everyone has freedom of speech. jamesjazzguitar ziggye
  15. Frank Oz, the voice of Yoda and Miss Piggy, had quite a run of making very funny films(then the muse left him it seems) making Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, What About Bob?, then HouseSitter, in a span of 4 years....
