  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.
  15. Welcome MsGoddess! (do you really look line one? :-) ) It happens the same to me with movies that I have recorded and then I see them being aired on TV (with or without commercials) but I must say that it is not only because of the feeling I get when joining the audience watching outside my home but also because I turn the TV to have as a companion while I prepare dinner/have it.
  16. I was about going to bed while listening to the music from Gladiator?s soundtrack in my yahoo music yuke box! That ?Honor him? and ?Now we are free? songs captivate me. I can die listening to them. Oh yes! HD means hard drive! And HiFi Hi Definition. How couldn?t I tell? Thanks for the clarification! My next purchase will be a HiFi flat screen TV. Enjoy LPs work later. Feel envious about you watching Ray Milland while I?ll at be at work. From the movies TCM will be showing today I?ve only seen The Lost Weekend. The latter is a ***** film, everyone should see it!, it is without doubt t
  17. Hi Bill, I see you?re a night owl like me. I?m fallig asleep on my PC, though. First of all, I wanted to tell you that yesterday The Innocents played on AMC at 3am and two imdb members posted they were watching it. One of them said that he-she owned the DVD but he-she still enjoyed watching the movie on TV! His comment made me laugh because I remembered how fussy the TCM audience is refusing to watch a movie with commecials even knowing the movie is great and not having ever seen it. Younger audiences (it seemed to me this poster was young) are more practical, less demanding and less fuss
  18. To all readers: 1. I looked up the FMC programming and the movie is not showing in January neither it showed in December. Who knows how long it?d take to show again. I want to see this movie now once and for all now. I?ll record the AMC showing. 2. This message and the one below are some general technical comments about recording My Cousin Rachel?s on a DVD recorder with a hard drive to edit the commercials from AMC. I think the information can be useful for anyone who might be considering buying a DVD recorder and needs to learn how to use it. Bill makes some comments that might be use
  19. Thanks Bill. I think your previous message (from the technical issues) is clearer than the one you just sent so I am copying it below. By the way, what did you mean by ?it takes about an extra 15 or 20?? What does it take that extra time? I still haven?t open the box of my new hard drive DVD recorder! Happy New Year to everyone. Irma Posted: 12/27/2006 11:06 EST in response to: IrmaMSQ Thanks for the "heads-up." At least I can use the hard-drive to edit the commercials before trying to watch it - and hope they don't cut or time-compress it all to you-know-what! Just like th
  20. Please mark your calendars of the airing of the subject movie. This is a movie that you won?t be able to see in TCM because they don?t have it in their libraries so this is a chance of your life you will have to see this film in AMC.
  21. ?Brat?, hah, hah, I like the way you pictured Freddie Bartholomew before he transmormed into an honorable and noble child. He was very popular in his time as a child actor but I haven?t seen him in any other movie than Captain Courageous. Nice poster of young actress Ana Torrent with her sister when The Spirit of the Beehive was released in 1973: http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=351 Picture clips of Ana Torrent in another classic ?Cr?a Cuervos?(Raise Raven) 1976, nominated for a Golden Globe & other 6 wins & 2 nominations.

  22. Following below is feedback posted by AMC to FAQ. Why did AMC add commercials? By adding advertising to our schedule, AMC generates additional revenue that enables us to provide a broader range of movies and original programming to our viewers. AMC carries among the fewest commercials per hour of any basic cable channel. Does AMC edit movies for content? Yes. Like most advertiser-supported networks, AMC edits programming for certain "objectionable" content, including nudity and offensive language. As a national network available on basic cable, AMC adheres to stan
  23. Which one? :-) My Cousin Rachel or The Spirit of the Beehive? By the way, if you like My Cousin Rachel, now or after you?ve seen it, you may vote for it to be released on DVD on the TCM page. Nice poster of Ana Torrent & sister when The Spirit of the Beehive was released in 1973: http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=351 Picture? clips of Ana Torrent in another classic ?Cr?a Cuervos?(Raise Raven) 1976, nominated for a Golden Globe & other 6 wins & 2 nominations.

  24. I just would like to step in to suggest a marvelous performance by Ana Torrent?s seven-yrs-old character in the award winning Spanish movie, ?The Spirit of the Beehive?, 1973, which premiered on TCM this past summer. I also loved the child actor?s performance of Freddie Bartholomew in 1937 award winning classic, ?Captain Courageous?. What a delight of a movie. I was highly moved and captivated by the above excellent child actors? performances -- to say the least, the make both movies to be magnificent. Message was edited by: IrmaMSQ
