  2. Are there not enough Noir films that prevents Noir Alley from being on every Sunday? I have grown accustomed to making it part of my Sunday at 10 am and there are sometimes weeks where it is not aired. Even if it can't be hosted every week can we at least watch a Noir film Sundays at 10am?
  3. I might have asked this question before. There was a movie made around 1958 where a young boy is turned into a werewolf because of nuclear testing. I only remember a scene of him sitting on the porch and a little while later he looks like a wolf boy.
  4. I love TCM but I also see the same movies repeated often.
  5. Thanks, I haven't been to that end of the board yet. This is a big place.
  6. Maybe if it was "Robot Monster" which is pretty bad and funny at the same time. Some of those cult movies such as "Eraserhead" are great films.
  7. I love Noir Alley and some of the sci fi films that I have seen on TCM. Would a "bad cinema" night work? Maybe just one film a week but not so horrible a film that no one would want to watch it. A film like Robot Monster, Beast With a Million Eyes, Billy the Kid Meets Dracula and some 50's and 60's weird films. Some of these films do show up occasionally on TCM but I consider Bad Cinema as an art in its own right. It has to be a bad film but not hideously awful. It would need to have some value as a cult film or so rare that we have heard about it but never seen it bef
  8. Shouldn't Noir Alley be aired in the dead of night? Sunday at 10 am seems like a time for family viewing. Now 10 pm is a different story.
  9. Yes I have cleared the cache. I am using a Mac. Slaytonf what is wrong with my wanting to resolve this problem with Chrome?
  10. As you can see the email section is grayed out and it will not accept the password either. I am here now in Firefox. If I am not good enough to help in the help section than maybe I should move on. I realize there have been updates but it only takes a few minutes to look in the help section. Maybe I sound angry but I think any of you would be frustrated receiving this pop-up every time you try to log in with Chrome.
  11. I am receiving this screen in Chrome for last week or so. I am about fed up with posting in technical issues.
  12. Thanks Lawrence A. It has been so frustrating that I figured if I was a "squeaky wheel" someone like you would respond. I appreciate that. There has to be some issue with a Mac and Chrome and maybe it could be the updated operating system from Apple. Never happened before the update.
  13. I am getting this message: This Community is Not Available Please contact the community owner for assistance. I haven't done anything bad to be blocked from the message boards. It could be my terrible sense of humor but people here wouldn't know about my bad puns. And Chrome does not work at all with TCM in general. Maybe because I have a Mac? I am getting an erroneous logon screen with grayed out fields in the Chrome browser. Maybe the problem here is that the site itself is very complex and there are many users who are accessing the site at the same time. I shoul
  14. Maybe if someone actually cared.
  15. I find it a little difficult to understand with the strong Austrian, German and Russian accents. Maybe this makes it slow for some people, it requires a lot of concentration. The Zither music really slows it down in my opinion. Maybe a Zither with an Orchestra would have given a fuller sound. Depending on where the copy is printed some copies are very grainy. I like the movie and have it on video and will still watch it on TCM.
  16. I found a copy of "I'd Rather Have The Blues" from Kiss Me Deadly on Youtube. It's great to hear the entire song crystal clear.
  17. Gee, thanks for the help. I have been a member here for many years and can't believe that there has not been one response. Am I the only one with these problems with Chrome???
  18. Was the Mid-Atlantic, Transatlantic accent used mainly in the early talking pictures? At some point in time it disappeared from most films but in the 30's it seemed that most actresses and a few actors acquired the accent. Were these people from the theater? When did the accent phase out?
  19. Did Lambert ever have a role where he was a normal person and not a sadistic killer? I have seen him in westerns too but always a shady character. He was not leading man material for sure, but I thought he was a decent actor. Some Noir villains are typecast forever, no matter how hard they try to escape.
  20. Lets see if I ever receive a response. I know others have had similar problems but mine is a very new problem.
  21. Two other actors I like are Steve Cochran and Stephen McNally. They seem to be cut out of the same mold as McGraw.
  22. I am now a dedicated Charles McGraw fan. Took me while. He always seemed older than his years due to that gravelly voice. A reviewer once said that any movie is enhanced if Charles McGraw appears in it. I believe that.
  23. I am unable to access the Watch TCM site because I receive the message "This is the first time you have logged on through a social network" my incorrect email address is grayed out and I cannot update it. I am stuck on this one screen. I even tried to disable any ad blockers that were enabled. Is this a new thing? I saw some problems in March of this year but this just started with me. I have never tried to log on TCM through any social network. What gives?
  24. I agree with a lot of what you are saying but for me I am going to watch these Noir movies on TCM or a movie channel. If I want it any more graphic I can purchase the video. A lot of things in the two movies being discussed may not be clear to most but I hove read both books also. To me Chandler can be a tough read because of his word usage and ancient expressions. Put a ribbon on it is one of the strangest to me. But is was so well written into the script that I can see Powell saying it. Chandler was older than all of my grandparents (my oldest grandfather being born in 1892). It's interestin
  25. Is it really any better that the restrictions were lifted and sex and four letter words were more acceptable in the mid 70's? What is unsaid but insinuated is what I prefer. Part of the reason I avoid network television is the total loss of values. No family shows and few sitcoms that are not overly concerned with sex. The Noir films said more by not saying anything. I didn't appreciate the racism in the book though and was glad it was not included in the 1944 film. Blacks were treated horrible in the cinema of the 30's and 40's.
