Not if you also saw KING KONG VS. GODZILLA and somehow conflated the two in your mind, as it does contain a scene with Kong being towed behind a ship on a raft.
  2. That's THE TENDER TRAP, 1955, co-starring Celeste Holm and David Wayne.

  4. Marian McCargo: You went out there to talk. Why did you have to shoot the man? The Duke: The conversation kinda dried up, ma'am. THE UNDEFEATED, 1969.
  5. It could be MUTINY IN OUTER SPACE, 1965, a black-and-white-movie.
  6. INVADERS FROM MARS, 1953. It's out on DVD, so you should be able to find a copy at Amazon or e-bay
  7. > {quote:title=RaevenHawk wrote:}{quote} > Then later, the hero sneaks out and escapes. He runs into a relief column - all dead. He and a small British detachment load the bodies in wagons in a sitting position and march to the fort with pipes playing. As the column enters the fort a boy asks an old man "what is wrong with the soldiers?" and the old man replies, "they're dead son." And that's it. "Drums Along the Mohawk" comes to mind but I'm pretty sure that isn't it. I figure that this group should have some of the best movie trivists. Thx in advance. This is from UNCONQUE

  9. Although he's not drunk at the time (or at least, he doesn't appear to be), William Powell as Nick Charles does a pretty good one with booze in THE THIN MAN (1934) in response to Nora's question while their apartment is being searched by the police: "What's that man doing in my drawers?"

  10. ...not to mention (but I will anyway) the 1949 musical comedy SPIT-TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME, featuring the haunting ballad "Spittin' On the Dock of the Bay."
  11. The first British film was 1960's SPITTOONS OF GLORY, which was just on TCM recently.
  12. You might also try IN OLD CALIFORNIA, 1942, in which Duke plays a pharmacist.
  13. Fred, if you happen to know a specific manufacturer (LG, Panasonic, etc.) you're looking for, you may be able to go their website(s) and research what you want there, and after you come up with a specific model number they'll often be able to tell you what stores in your area have one in stock. If it's a big chain such as Best Buy, the store's website should also be able to tell you which stores in your area (if any) have the device. I did this several months ago when I was looking for a new LG DVD/VCR.
  14. > {quote:title=finance wrote:}{quote} > Comparing the Young character to the Tierney character is like comparing someone who shoplifts a candy bar to Charles Manson. You might want to check out the detailed synopsis here: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title.jsp?stid=2177 and reconsider that comparison. I agree that Tierney's character is the worse of the two, but Young is hardly a "candy bar shoplifter."
  15. > {quote:title=cujas wrote:}{quote} > I was wondering is there a counterpart for men--like malicious males. Or are only women capable of this crime? There are examples of this in film noir. Two of them are Lawrence Tierney in BORN TO KILL and Robert Young(!) in THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME.
  16. This sounds as if it could be 1952's Kansas City Confidential, with John Payne. It's good, even if it's not what you're looking for.
  17. They also co-starred in 1939's INVISIBLE STRIPES, a Warner Brothers gangster melodrama (which also featured George Raft).
  18. You are probably thinking of 1961's *SHADOW OF THE CAT*, in which greedy relatives murder an old woman whose cat takes exception to this. Several attempts to kill the cat, who knows what happened to her mistress, result in the deaths of the guilty parties. It's not really a comedy, black or otherwise, but the cat is really too cute and cuddly to be very menacing. However, if you can get past that, it's a decent little film.

  20. You may be thinking of the 1960 version of THE LOST WORLD.
  21. It could be PANIC IN YEAR ZERO!, 1962, with Ray Milland. That movie has been asked about a lot here recently. Fred, if you haven't already, you may wish to add this one to your list of most-asked-about movies! And welcome to the boards, jb.
  22. Yes, I do remember that series. I thought it was a shame that it only lasted part of one season. I thought Robert Goulet was pretty good as the American journalist who pretended to go over to the Nazis in the days before the US entered the war. I have the movie I DEAL IN DANGER, which was a feature strung together from some episodes of [/b]BLUE LIGHT[/b].
