  1. Thanks TopBilled. Why doesn't TCM date their articles? They cannot be used as a guide otherwise, leading to confusion, as now. In addition, couldn't Burt Lancaster be again Star of the Month? I guess that I am pushing my luck!
  2. I've read that Joan Crawford's last film, "Trog" (1970), is also very bad but not as bad as Bette Davis' last film, WICKED STEPMOTHER (1989). Even though I have not seen it myself, according to the opinions written in Amazon by people who bought the DVD and other viewers, it seems to be indeed quite bad. However, as a fan of Bette Davis, I 'd like to see it. It is said to be bad mainly because, for reasons not entirely known, Bette Davis quit filming half-way into the making of the film and that caused the script to have to be edited and rewritten, which distorted the initial story. I am afrai
  3. Yes, the Production Co. is "Universal." There will be a tribute to Burt Lancaster in November (hopefully it will be November 2015!), according to this article http://www.tcm.com/t...-the-Month.html. If you look at the footnote, "The Midnight Man" (1974) will not be part of the films that will be shown in November, neither it will be shown on any other scheduled date as per TCM search engine. So the best would beto suggest the film. I just suggested it myself. You should do too and then there will be more chances that it will shown sometime in the futue.http://http://www.tcm.com/suggest-a-mo
  4. I just found out that "The Swimmer" will air on TCM in November as part of the tribute to Burt Lancaster as star of the month. Burt Lancaster's birthday is on November 2nd. There is an asterisc at the end of the article showing on this link that indicates that all the bolded films will show in November. The article does not show a date, though -- I hope that it will be this November 2015! http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article/770437|0/Burt-Lancaster-Star-of-the-Month.html
  5. Thanks very much, slaytonf, for the post. I just googled the story. I´ll print it and read it. It´s only 10 pages long. http://www.loa.org/images/pdf/Cheever_Swimmer.pdf I think it´s better to read the story and then see the film. I hope that TCM shows the film by the end of the year and that I don´t miss it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Stories_of_John_Cheever
  6. Thanks so much TopBilled for this informative reply. I requested ¨Wicked Stepmother¨ to be shown on TCM earlier today and I hope that it will be shown at some point in the near future. All fans of Bette Davis should see this film with the always good commentaries by Robert Osborne. I happen to have read Davis´ ¨This ´n That¨ memoirs and I infer from it and some other online readings, that the story of this comedy is a mockery of Davis towards her daughter´s ill intentions of wanting her mother to be portrayed in a film as she (her daughter) depicts her in her (daughter´s) unkind and undeservin
  7. Thanks very much Top Billed. I´m Irma Monserrrat, either way is fine. Apologies for the confusion.
  8. Sdio, you will have to do some good research to find it. Here is a start: --The Top 100 Alien Invasion Films of All Time - Flickchart http://www.flickchart.com/Charts.aspx?genre=Alien+Invasion+Films&perpage=100 -- 50 Best SciFi Films featuring alien life forms http://www.imdb.com/list/ls000030012/ --Sci Fi Movies of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s http://www.imdb.com/list/ls053753438/ , -- The Best of MOSTLY 1950s and 1960s classic Horror and Sci-Fi movies http://www.imdb.com/list/ls003791925/ -- --List of science fiction films of the 1960s: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o
  9. Has Wicked Stepmother, 1989, ever shown on TCM? No, it has ever shown on TCM. I was just told on another thread. It was Bette Davis´ last film and the year that she died from her battle against breast cancer. She dropped out from the part. She didn´t like the script and she didn´t give a good performance but who expected more when she was dying. As a fan of Davis, I´d like to see it.
  10. Further to my previous reply, Claudette Colbert , Deborah Kerr, Steve McQueen, Charles Laughton and Judy Holliday, are also among my preferred actors.
  11. Thank you so much for letting me know, Top Billed! And what a precise reply knowing that it has played seven times on TCM. I hope that TCM shows it again on November of this year, which is Burt Lancaster's birthday month (Nov. 2nd). You must also know if TCM ever shown "Wicked Stepmother," Bette Davis' last film, which she dropped out before it ended. I share with you my preference for "It Happened one Night" , " Rebecca" , Black Narcisus. I haven't seen I'd Clim bthe Highest Mountain, The Shop Around the Corner and some of your other favorites in their entirety, such as Citizen
  12. I've requested The Swimmer to show on TCM today. I don't think that it's part of TCM film library, I know it´s possible for TCM to get rent/buy the licenseas they did with other great films that had not initially shown on TCM such as "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." It´s said that Burt Lancaster is pitch-perfect in the lead and that it's based on a masterpiece 'short' story that I am intrigue to see it in the screen. Some prefer the film to the short story, others love the story. If you'd like to see the film, it will help that you request it.
  13. I apologize Neil for not having replied earlier. Your message came when I was still at work, where I usually have no time to respond to. Then Friday I went to the movies (boy, I did not enjoy ?Babel,? quite a depressing movie). Last night I watched the Golden Globes repeat in Bravo. Yes, I did see the homage to Warren Beatty. I?ve seen a thread saying he gave a long message which was rather disjointed? Yes, it was long and he kind of meandered through the speech, which did not seem to have been prepared. Did you watch? Anyway, as for the precious and long sought ?My Cousin Rachel,? yes, of co
  14. Tks. You should read the message I posted about AMC commercials under My Favorites thread titled the same. That message answers all the points you raised here.
