  1. I've drifted away from these message boards for most of the last 4 or 5 years, but with the sad news of Robert Osborne's passing, I just want to express my condolences. I've continued watching movies on TCM, but I have missed RO's appearances over the past couple years. His intros always made movie watching more interesting and entertaining by adding some background info. He was good at what he did and I will really miss that. RIP Mr. Osborne.
  2. The original Trigger was the most beautiful horse I have ever seen. There were 4 palominos that Roy used to play Trigger in his movies. Trigger, Trigger Jr. and 2 others whose names escape me now. None of them were related to Trigger. Trigger Jr. was used as Trigger's stand-in more often than the others. Nice to see this topic raised.
  3. The Legend Of Tarzan, to be released July 1st, starring Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie, will be a Tarzan movie quite unlike any made in the past. Directed by David Yates of the Harry Potter films. Trailer link below: http://www.star2.com/entertainment/movies/movie-news/2016/04/05/sneak-peek-the-legend-of-tarzan/
  4. This is sad news. My musical tastes mostly remain in an era before the Eagles, but i really like the Eagles. A lot. That surprises my kids, but Lordy! What's not to like? They were great! R.I.P. Glen Frey.
  5. The lost footage from 1936's Tarzan Escapes with Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan. After a preview showing, it was deemed too scary for young audiences, so they re-shot most of the film. I understand that the finished, released product only barely resembles the original film.
  6. Fred MacMurray is one of my favorites. I especially like those movies he made with Claudet Colbert. Apparently No Time For Love, The Egg And I, and Family Honeymoon (3 of my favorites), didn't make it this time around. When I was a kid buying comic books, I always thought that Captain Marvel resembled Fred MacMurray. Much later in life, I learned that his image was, indeed, used to render the Captain Marvel character in the comic books. This was inspired by the dream sequence in No Time For Love with FM and Claudet Colbert. Pretty cool! Perhaps the rarest of the MacMurray/Colb
  7. Oh, one more thing. Your point about R&R singer/songwiters writing music that expresses their POV. In my day, we didn't give a hoot about a musician's POV. We just liked the sound and the beat of their music and the way they performed it. So appreciating a singer's POV in his songs is an alien concept to me. bOb39
  8. JJG, you have high standards indeed. But the masses loved this guy. He was not just a popular R&R act. He was a phenomenon. He stood above all others in his day. The title "King" is fitting. But odd as it may sound, like Elvis, I too, don't like the title. And I never use it to describe him. I just say he's the best. Chuck Berry could certainly be a candidate for such a title. For reasons you give, and I would add that his singing voice was great, too. But while he stood tall among the R&R/Pop acts of his era, Elvis was in the clouds. Yes, early Elvis was much bet
  9. There are some pretty diverse opinions of Elvis on this thread. As a fan, I tend to agree with much that has been said. Even to some degree, the unflattering comments. But one thing I gotta take issue with is JamesJazzGuitar's opinion that to be called King of anything, one should have written some songs. Elvis was the best at what he did. He made music that millions love. His image fit what a "King of Rock and Roll" should look like. He sold more records than anybody else. His movies made money - lots of it. (I agree that about half of them , and most of the movie songs, were not
  10. The first Jeff Chandler movie I can recall seeing was 1951's Iron Man. He played a boxer who went up against Rock Hudson. Actually, I think he was a coal miner who turned to boxing for some reason. Anyway, I'd like to see this one again.
  11. 3 years ago, my cousin was in a local Main St shop in the town where he lived and when someone walked in behind him, he turned around and there stood Clint Walker. My cousin recognized him right away and they struck up a conversation. My cousin told me that Walker is truly a nice guy. He told me, "Bob, Clint may be 85, but he looks healthy and he's still a big guy."
  12. But, he won't try to clear his name or say anything to help his case because .... (I dunno), he's too proud?
