  1. The movie looks like a good candidate for a direct-to-video release, but I have no direct knowledge of that one way or the other.
  2. > {quote:title=rubob wrote:}{quote} > Why is this movie so hard to have in the U.S. Hope TCM can have the power to show it on his network. You're right about how rare this movie is. I taped it once off A & E about 10 or 15 years ago, & I'm glad I did because I've never seen it played anywhere since. Since TCM is arranging to show some Paramount releases, you might try suggesting it to the powers that be here.

I also barley remembering seeing the Impeachment Hearing for Nixon, as they played them all day . Both seasons of THE RAT PATROL have been released on DVD. I've recently been watching some of season 1, having not seen it since it was originally on. It's a pretty good action/adventure type show, and as enj

HahHahHahHah!" And then, once he found them: "OOOOO, you wascawy wabbits! I'll get you!" You can keep Stu and Rory (and even DeForest & Paul). This calls for a real hero!
  5. Hi, Martin: As Sandy mentioned before, it's probably not good for you to post your phone number on a public forum like this. You might want to go back and edit it out. Glad you like the oldies. To me, they're the best! Nightwalker
  6. You're quite welcome. Glad I could help.

I like the Alien movies, too. #2 is my favorite. I like all the Planet of the Apes movies. When I can do it, I like to watch all 5 right in a row! I like the series Lost in Space, too. I also like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Land of the Giants and The Time Tunnel. They were made by the same man at abo
  8. Hi. This movie was released on VHS a few years back, so you can probably find some copies on Amazon or e-Bay. It also turns up on Encore's Westerns channel from time to time.
  9. The film you're thinking of is Goke - Body Snatcher From Hell from 1968. It's been shown on TCM, so you can tell your husband you weren't dreaming!
  10. But then, it really wouldn't have been Ben-Hur, would it?
  11. One that I'd like to have is Larry Talbot's cane in THE WOLF MAN.
  12. He wears a diving suit during the fight in REAP THE WILD WIND.
  13. X the Unknown (1956) is a British sci-fi film from 1956 starring Dean Jagger, among others. It features a radioactive blob-like creature which attacks a small village in the Scottish highlands. As other posters on this thread have indicated, it's pretty good, and definitely worth a look should the opportunity arise.
  14. The film (THE PURPLE HEART) also shows up occasionally on the Cinemax "family" of channels, if you have them.
  15. Wayne fought a squid (or an octopus) in REAP THE WILD WIND (1942) and also WAKE OF THE RED WITCH (1948).
  16. Agree, Topographic. The issues addressed in the film's more serious moments are always with us. The decisions made by the young ladies of the cast will have ramifications throughout the rest of their lives, especially (but not only) those made by Yvette Mimieux. When my daughters were of age, I watched this with them, after which we had an earnest discussion about these types of choices and allowing people to use them, etc. I think the movie made it easier (on both sides) to address these subjects.
  17. THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES, because of Fred Derry's (Dana Andrews) pre-war occupation as a soda jerk. next word: Test tube.
  18. It could be ARMORED COMMAND from 1961, with Howard Keel & Tina Louise.
  19. I see your point, CS, but I don't think that Webb/Lydecker's obsession with Laura was sexual in any way. Remember, in his mind, he created her and made her what she became: a successful, stylish, confident career woman. In this sense, Webb/Lydecker had the same function as Pygmalion (or Henry Higgins, if you like). His "obsession" stems from the fact that she is, in a sense, his creation. I think this is brought out rather well by Webb's line near the film's end when Laura chooses Mark MacPherson over him: "I hope you'll never regret what promises to be a disgustingly earthy relationshi
  20. The picture was a Columbia release. It played on TNT years ago. Recently (in the past year), it's been on Encore Westerns.
  21. Yes, Mike, he did. I've read interviews with him in which he said so. He also enjoyed going to various fan shows, meeting and chatting with fans, signing autographs, etc.
  22. Hey, Bronxie. Just caught up with this thread and the news about your mother. I join with everyone in wishing her a speedy and complete recovery (and yes, I'll take a blanket!)
