  1. I was not thinking about all the solid arguments some of you folks posted to justify the "obvious" suggestions I was complaining about. I, therefore, stand corrected. One of my problems is that I always assume anybody who watches TCM knows as much as I do about its habits, methods and particulars. Edited by: CapMatifou on Dec 6, 2010 12:03 AM
  2. I see your point, but I am assuming that, like myself, people who are regular watchers of TCM and have been for years would by now know which movies TCM features on a regular basis and, therefore, the reason to suggest these movies is pointless since it is a question of time before TCM will schedule them again. I guess my real concern is that by refraining to suggest regular TCM movies, the list of suggestions would get a lot shorter and thus be easier to follow.
  3. I was having a great time checking the hundreds of suggestions viewers are posting for scheduling a movie on TCM. One thing I noticed is that many of these titles people are suggesting are in fact regular movies TCM features in their monthly schedules. One example is *"Key Largo"*. This movie is scheduled on TCM at least once every three months (if not more often). In my opinion, people should only suggest movies TCM has never shown or movies that have not been shown for many years, such as the one I suggested yesterday: *"The War Lord"* (1965), with Charlton Heston. In doing so, it would greatly reduce the list of suggested movies and keep the list much shorter and display only movies that TCM has never shown or, again, has not shown for a number of years. In other words, what is the point of suggesting a movie that you know very well will be shown on TCM sooner or later, such as *"Casablanca"*, *"Citizen Kane"* or *"Double Indemnity"* ?

  7. I agree completely: "The Magnificent Seven" and "Once Upon a Time..." are not in the same league as Liberty Valance CapMatifou
  8. Thanks again, Gerb, for your feedback and suggestions. I actually like what you said about liking any western that was made before 1970 (big or small). There is something about them, one can't quite put a finger on it. All these westerns have something called "un je ne sais quoi" that makes them special. One just can't go wrong with these old westerns. The funny thing is that they are 'old', but they are timeless and universal. That is why they are classics, I guess. I will look for "Virginia City" when it comes on TCM. Incidentally, I forgot to mention that I really like "The Wildd Bunch" (Sam Peckinpah) and, speaking of which, I also like one he made with Jason Robards Jr. called "The Ballad Of Cable Hogue". I am a big fan of Sam Peckinpah. CapMatifou
  9. I forgot "The Magnificent Seven" CapMatifou
  10. Red River, yes, but about "The Man who Shot Liberty Valence", Gunfight at the OK Corral" and "Once Upon a Time in the West"? CapMatifou
  11. Oh, sorry! I forgot (where was my head?): "The Big Country" (Gregory Peck, Burl Ives, Charlton Heston, etc.) also one of my all-time favourite westerns. Timeless and universal, like all great westerns, incidentally. CapMatifou
  12. Of your favourite four, I only know two of them: "High Noon" (an all-time classic by any standard) and "Once Upon a Time in the West" (Henry Fonda, Charles Bronson, Jason Robards Jr.), which I like very much too. A must-have in any western lover's collection. However, let us not forget "The Magnificent Seven" (in my humble opinion anyway) and "Gunfight at the OK Corral". Thanks for your feedback, CapMatifou
  13. As a matter of fact, another very good movie with Richard Todd is "Chase a Crooked Shadow" (film noir, 1957). By the way, one of my all-time favourite western is "The Man who Shot Liberty Valance", directed by John Ford. I would be curious to know which one is your favourite. CapMatifou
  14. Hi Gerb, I knew somebody would eventually find that title for me. Thank you very much indeed. "The Hellions". Of course, I saw that movie dubbed in French when I was little and I am sure it did not have that title, but from the description of the movie on IMDb, it is definitely the one. Once again, thank you very much for refreshing my memory. Now I am going to see if I can get my hands on this movie at my favourite video store. Wish me luck... PS. We could suggest it on TCM.
