  1. I know that Shirley Temple is usually reserved for Christmas time, but personall I wouldn't mind an all Thanksgiving Day tribute to one of my favorite little actresses. I also had a Marilyn Marathon in in mind. I'm a fan of all classic cinema, but on holidays I give great thanks to feel good movies like "How to Marry a Millionare," "The Prince and the Showgirl," and "There's No Business Like Show Business!" ----What about you?----
  2. I have to completely agree that "Haunting," is one of my all time favorite scary movies! I was just discussing this with a fellow student the other day, and I was both surprised and delighted that someone my age appreciated such as great and frightening classic!
  3. ...And the list goes on...those are some great choices! Carey Grant is a must! I think Rosanno Brazzi was fabulous looking as well!
  4. Many a time I use this forum to talk about the gorgeous male stars from early Hollywood. Hey, but where else would I have the opportunity to discuss such a wonderful topic?! Anyway, I'm definitely interested in who ranks at the top of your list! So here goes mine starting with Numero Uno: 1. Paul Newman 2. Carey Grant 3. Eroll Flynn 4. Louis Jourdan 5. James Dean ***And there are tons of others, but these are my top 5**
  5. This beautiful Italian actor was on a quick TCM movie blip that aired in between two other movies. I hadn't ever heard of him or even seen him until the other day. It was a trailer for a film he starred in with Jane Fonda. Has anyone more information about him, or any other movies?
  6. For the most part I consider myself to be pretty open minded when it comes to films, but I didn't take to well with this months tribute to Bollywood cinema. I have to agree with Spencer, but then again I have been so busy this month. Also, I just received the Fox Movie Channel, and while it isn't as great as TCM, it's nice to see some other faces; I just watched "How to Marry a Millionaire," and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." Grable and Bacall are greatly missed on TCM's lineup!
  7. There was Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, Lauren BcCall and Humphrey Bogart, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton... They were dynamic both on and off screen. Can any name your favorite Hollywood couples that fit those circumstances?
  8. Any of you out there enjoy Elia Kazan films? "Rebel Without a Cause," "Splendor in the Grass," are some of his most popular. I know that the plots are pretty much dominated by the whole "teen anxst" thing, but I dunno, I just really like them! I wish that TCM would show more of his films! What do you think?
  9. I completely agree with this post! I recently received the Fox Movie Channel, and I have to say that I'm happy to see more classic-film faces. Don't get me wrong, I love TCM, but sometimes I get a little tired of seeing Spencer Tracey. Stars like Betty Grable, Don Ameche and Carmen Miranda are in my favorite movies! And you can never see them on TCM. Good topic!
  10. Keeping up the "The Top Five Most..." list, I thought it would be interesting to see what five actors and actresses were thought to be the most intimidating in their films. For me, the actors that were consistently casted in these type of roles would have to be: Betty Davis, Marlon Brando, Joan Crawford, Orson Welles and Humphrey Bogart. Not so much as being fearsome; these actors just seemed to put everyone else's egos in check.
  11. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Little Princess, The Philadelphia Story, Razor's Edge and All About Eve
  12. Patty, you're walking around in my brain!!! I could not have said it better myself! The technicolor in some of Grable's musicals does remind me of candy colored ice cream sundaes! And just so I don't over do it with the exclamation points (too late), I wanted to say that "Moon Over Miami," is also one of my favorites! What can I say, I'm a sucker for those cornball classics!
  13. A question for all you classic movie buffs out there: Was Betty Grable under contract at Fox, therefore only in their films? I understand that some actors were obligated by contract to make movies under one company, and maybe that is why I only see her on the Fox Movie Channel. Other actors that you see on Fox but rarely on TCM, are Don Ameche and Carmen Miranda.
  14. Listen Oscar, why don't you get off your elitists soapbox for a second...This message board has a more open minded and tolerant audience than any other I ever been on. As for myself, I feel that TCM is so successful because they stick to what their audience is comfortable with. Every once in awhile they'll show a movie like "Metropolis;" not exactly mainstream, and I'm sure that viewers were intrigued by this foreign silent, even though it wasn't your average TCM film. That is why this network is great. We don't need a lecture from you about cultural awareness. It seems you are the one wh
  15. Uh yeah, I'm aware that there are adults among us born in the 80's. I myself was born in 1982. I agree, there are many things wrong with AMC, and I also would agree that 1970 isn't exactly yesterday. You have a good point; there are definitely some great films to come out of that era, but I guess for me personally, at least right now, "Classic" is more Art Deco than Disco.
