  1. I'm a big fan of the Hammer fans, as well. But I'm not really an authority. Yes, Curse of the Werewolf is my favorite also. I'm 59 and I remember seeing it in the movies on it's original release, I think 59' or 60'. Oliver Reed was over the top in the role of Leon. I remember my friends arguing with me, because they would have liked to see more of the the werewolf , then just the final scenes,but I thought that touch was great. I don't remember the actress who played his doomed mother, but I remember, even as a young boy, I had dreams about her for a while. Also you mentioned Curse of Franken
  2. It sounds like a 1956 British movie starring Dean Jagger. British Army radiation drills at a remote Scottish base attract a subterranean, radioactive entity of unknown nature that vanishes, leaving two severely radiation-burned soldiers... and a "bottomless" crack in the earth. Others who meet the thing in the night suffer likewise, and with increasing severity; it seems to be able to "absorb" radiation from any source, growing bigger and bigger. What is it?? How do you destroy a thing that "feeds" on energy? IMDB Sorry,, I forgot to type in the title....."X, THE UNKNOWN"....must have the pl
  3. I own a VHS copy of the colorized version ofYankee Doodle. It was released in the mid to late eighties. And I remember TNT or TBS broadcasting the classics , one a week around the same time. The first colorized showings of King Kong, Gunga Din, The Thing, March of the Wooden Soldiers, Both versions of the Christmas Carol (which by the way I own them all, purchased , not recorded)and many more. The colorization process never really bothered me and some of them were done ok. And it was nice to see them in color,,or what they might have looked like iin color. I prefer the original process and
  4. Jimmy Durante, kicking the bucket ,,,what a classic!!! I loved it. great pick!!
  5. I agree Anne, I think Leonard Nimoy did a great job in"The Wrath of Khan" and Shatner's farewell speech was just as moving. Great Stuff.
  6. James Cagney in Angels with Dirty Faces Sam Jaffe in Gunga Din Shelly Winters in The Posiden Adventure James Arness in The Thing Imitation of Life (Both versions) John Wayne in The Alamo Steven Boyd in Ben Hur Richard Burton & Jean Simmons in The Robe and one of my all time favorites... Merle Oberon in Wuthering Heights
  7. It's funny you should mention the scissors scene. That is the 10 minute segment they show at Universal. I guess it's the only 3D worthy scene of the movie. The rest, although a classic, is not 3D material.
  8. Just a side note, not too important concerning the tread subject, but "Dial M" was originally filmed in 3D , but not released in 3D. By the time in was ready for release 3D films were losing their appeal, so Hitchcock decided to release it in standard format. I visited the "Hitchcock Exhibit" at Universial Studios in Florida and they show a 10 minute excerpt in the originally 3D format. It was very impressive,,,but I don't know about the whole movie. Still a great flick. One of my favorite Hitchcock's.
  9. I did not watch it on Christmas, and , yes those scenes, should have been in the movie in tact. I own the DVD and I know you are correct in remembering them, and would be upset to know that TCM was cutting scenes. Especially the scene with Dudley magically lighting the tree.
  10. Yes, I received mine about 2 weeks ago
  11. Thanks, coffedan, for expressing just what "Star in the Night" means to all of us, and what Christmas is all about. Some of us forget whose birthday it really is.
  12. I believe the movie you're thinking of is "Hondo" Wayne had a mutt that followed him around through out the movie. By the way this was the only movie Starring John Wayne filmed in "3-D". "Oh my poor eyes!!"
