  1. I'm fairly certain this was aired on TCM, as that's the only movie channel I had at the time. Yes, it may have been in TCM's first year or two also. I recorded it (before DVRs), on VHS tape, which i can't play now--(I tossed my old vhs player & the tape). Not sure why it's not on TCMs data base or "moviecollectorh's database"but again, I find discrepancies in TCMs data base and am not a fan of any of their search engines.
  2. Rest in Peace Kirk Douglas. You were certainly one of the "greats" of Hollywood. I have tried and tried to get a message to him via twitter --to anyone who may have access to him as he was the last surviving actor from the movie "In Harm's Way;" in which I deduced there's a or a few missing scenes. Even the transcripts available have that portion blacked out. I figured he could say whether or not this part of the story line hit the editors floor. At about 20 minutes in, the ship he & John Wayne are officers, it's awkward in that there's no reason given for a guard posted at or near Douglas
  3. Love that Brute (1950) Paul Douglas... TCM used to play this often... endearing romcom gangster movie. The Barbarian & the Geisha, John Wayne. The 1970s version of "Black Christmas" Wake of the Red Witch (J. Wayne)..... The Big Country (1958) EPIC film. "Them!" should be played every month. More Gregory Peck (and not the typical stuff, i.e., The Yearling over & over again. How about Horatio Hornblower and many other Peck movies that weren't necessarily commercial hits, but better movies than has been offered lately). I know TCM doesn't play T.V.
  4. It appears to me that the space allowed to post the "on demand" movies is limited, so that they older movies are falling off even though they've not expired... the search engine works sometimes to bring the movie up to hit "play" but we all know the search on the WatchTCM is nearly useless. I can see from all these comments TCM really doesn't care to listen to complaints. Anyone notice the movie "The Sea Hawk" 1940 version is the ? 1924 version? They've got the titles correct (playing old & remakes together this month), but the movie downloaded for us to view is inaccurate; i.e., they've d
  5. Not one single movie (now) is loading from TCM's On Demand list. This happened at Thanksgiving time too. Every movie shared after 12/19 is not loading or playing. I've tweeted to both TCM & DirecTV trying to get someone's attention; to no avail. People pay upgraded fees/charges on their cable/satellite services just to get TCM and it's ridiculous that TCM ignores this major problem. In November (and even before that), when tweeting to TCM, they at least responded saying "they're working on it" but this time, no responses at all. (Oh, and if someone responds saying it's my computer or inter
  6. Just had to share.... I just won, at an online auction, the tie #5, Gregory Peck wore in the epic movie "How the West Was Won" (1962). It's the one he wore in his last scene where he proposes to Debbie Reynolds. How awesome is that? I'm so flipping happy and excited. It's truly awesome. Does anyone know what something like this is worth? I appreciate any replies. Robin H.
  7. Okay...at 'script fly' the screen play can be obtained for $22.00 and it notes: IN HARM'S WAY [miss pps 134,196|http://forums.tcm.com/] (1965)....hmmm?? missing pages 134 and or through 196? I don't have a spare $22 bucks to found out though... :-) Wendell Mayes died in 1992...Impressive list of screenplays though; Sprit of St. Louis The Enemy Below The Poseiden Adventure North to Alaska Bank Shot Death Wish (1974-original) The Hunters (R. Mitchum) Anatomy of a Murder Von Ryan's Express Advise & Consent The Stalking Moon
  8. I think this is a historic movie mystery. I need to find out how to get a message to Bob O. or Manchiewicz... I believe that the original screenplay will show some kind of scenes where K. Douglas is in some kind of altercation with another crew member... (specific problem?) The statement Torrey makes to Eddington, then Eddington to Torrey on the bridge...after coming in with his rain slicker on, regarding having cut his problems/troubles down to size, to me, indicates there is a specific problem ... the talk earlier that morning isn't enough in my mind to connect to the later scene.
  9. Thanks for your help but no... the identification of his wife and then the brawl are all after Torrey's ship returns to port. The beginning of the movie, leading up to and during the Pearl Harbor attack is where I believe there are some scenes that might indicate K. Douglas having some fight or something with someone who is taunting him about his trashy wife aboard the ship. Eddington doesn't know at that point about her being at an officer's party with an Air Force officer or skinny dipping or even getting killed in the car crash yet. Wish I had a copy of the original screenplay or i
  10. Thanks for your help... I still believe though there is more to it than a metaphore or symbolic. The storm (assuming it was a storm) had nothing to do with anyting in the film. It's pretty specific that Douglas/Eddington was off "doing" something. I think he was confronting someone else on the ship who was or had been antagonizing him about his trashy wife. I believe that there was a confrontation the night before on the ship, thus the sentry at the Captain's door... If those or that scene was cut out, then the other would also have to come out... the stimulus before Eddington comes into
  11. Thanks for your time and attention. You basically covered all the things I did and still I believe there are scenes cut. You did confirm that my copy is the same as yours. Here's my thoughts. Since Capt. Torrey has woke up and awaiting someone (he calls the name "Larry") to come to attention, as in eating breakfast and conferring with at the beginning of their duty day (someone being K. Douglas/Eddington?), Torry goes to his cabin's door, opens it and sees that there is a sentry posted outside his door. Torry says "Oh, then it'll be bacon and eggs for me." Torrey then discards his s
  12. Thanks for replying. I was thinking the older actress in The Big Heat but now that you mention it, I've probably seen the Brando actress name and didn't associate with younger blonds in other movies. Thanks very much.
  13. Thanks for replying SansFin I appreciate the comments and I considered the fact that it was probably battery operated but like I said originally, it just bothered me...hahahaha :-) Btw: That movie entertains the heck out of me no matter how many times I watch it. The Uninvited is still one of the best "ghost" movies made. I can see where many ideas for "Poltergeist" came from. Regards, Robin
  14. thanks Mr. Dobbs. Hope you have wonderful vacations! :-)
