  1. I recall seeing once I think was a silent western starring monkeys, and there horses were dogs. Am I just imagining things or is this film real?
  2. I have always loved those Robert Benchley shorts and I am glad they finally came out on DVD. But if you want to see Robert Benchley at his driest best you check out the Disney pseudo doc The Reluctant Dragon pure genius!!!!!!
  3. Why I added forgotten to such a great film, I tried asking around and seemly no one had ever heard of this amazing Olympic theme movie. With tons of great sports action, amazing music and voiced by equally amazing talent. To bad according to Wikipedia it's only on DVD in Germany. In case you don't even know what I am talking about click on the link. http://www.johnbruinsma.nl/movie.html

    Bob Hope

    Okay so TCM plays a lot of Bob Hope films, but I can't recall anyone playing one of his films in a decade and that is Cancel My Reservation. I wonder what other films have not been seen in a very long time.

    Bob Newhart

    As you might of heard Bob Newhart is going to host a night of his favorite films. Which only reminded me of the fact Bob Newhart made very few films and I am surprised TCM is not playing Bob Newhart's most famous film the one he actually gets killed in 'Cold Turkey'. One which also no one has aired in years.
  6. Next to the classic cartoons I guess we can all agree that Pixar in addition to making just about the best animated films on the planet, can make a damn funny short as well. And I think it;s about time we all talk about what we love. Boundin' For the birds (makes me laugh every time I see it) Our friend the Rat (the greatest send up of all time)

    animal farm

    I have good news YES it's on DVD http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D72429&loc=title Next to Wizards, I think the original Animal Farm is just about the most dramatic piece of animation ever made. I have no clue why TCM does not air this great film classic.
  8. I am actually looking forward to this Disney documentary on the rebirth of Disney Animation http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1159961/ given where they were and now I would love to see how they did it.
  9. I want to openly thank TCM for playing one of my all time favorite films. There is something so wonderful about this delightful comedy, I wish it was on DVD.
  10. A quick reminder to anyone having IFC on there cable or satellite service starting this Sunday IFC does a whole week of Python, not only a multiple part documentary on the Pythons, a making of the series, and more python stuff than you can imagine. That's starting at 9/ 8 PM CT this Sunday Oct 18.
  11. I am a big fan of the film myself and I do have good news the film is on DVD and you can get it here http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D67071&loc=title
  12. I was planning on calling this Beany and Cecil Bob Clampett's lost classic. Which it truly is one DVD released nearly 9 years ago it got pulled, now fast forward until yesterday Vol. 2 finally came out by a different company. I know those cartoons are a bit corny and a bit over the top, but it is a shame no one has aired them in years. They are so good, much better than what most kids see on TV today.
  13. Roy Rogers singing Buttons and Bows in Son of Paleface while Bob Hope is hamming it up
  14. Talk about underrated shorts, (sorry for the pun) get the short end of the stick. I would love to see an entire day of shorts.
  15. Yet another reason to own the DVD, The Great Race is a great movie there are so many moments in this film that are so funny, I hate to see not getting the airplay it so richly deserves.
  16. For a few short years The Three Stooges worked at MGM with Ted Heely. I have The Lost Stooges tape that Turner Home Entertainment put out in 1990, on it I saw Beer and Pretzels which the official 3 Stooges site has no description of, only the title. And I also learned of a real lost work of the Stooges 'Around the world backwards', which was made about the same time as Plane Nuts. But for some reason was never released and since vanished without trace from the old MGM Library. The tape did have still from the production. My question is expect for Meet the Baron and the very funny Soup to Nuts
  17. I can't recall the original title and TCM has not played it in a very long time. But it was a Sherlock Holmes musical, still the strangest thing I ever seen.
  18. It maybe hard for some to believe but Jack Benny and Fred Allen did a film together, and why TCM does not air it is beyond me. It is the original version later Mel Brooks would do as the 12 Chairs. It's on DVD and it is very, very, very funny I promise it is fall on the floor funny. http://www.moviesunlimited.com/musite/product.asp?sku=D55904
  19. I know this is not the place for trivia, but have I got a juicy one on A trip to the moon. Did you know the film was actually stolen by Tom Edison and one other millionaire and given that title. The French studio that made the film had nothing to do with it's film coming to America. Worse yet they actually lost a lawsuit when they tried and failed to get the rights back to their own movie.
  20. I hope someone here can give me an answer about something that has bothered me since the VHS tape came out. The song Mimi sings, what is it? I am not a big fan of classical music, but I really love that song and want to know really bad what it is. I also want to pass along a bit of info I found out about this special, it will be on the 90s collection of Peanuts specials when it gets released to DVD.
  21. I forgot about Blackhawk films, a quick check and I found out they weren't in Chicago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackhawk_Films
  22. I came across this on on another forum, and I promise you this is without a doubt the weirdest cartoon you have ever seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_F_sUpMH18
  23. I am a BIG fan of classic radio, even though I was not born yet to hear them the first time around. I have actually grown to love many of the stars from that era. The hardest thing is finding the shows, and getting them for FREE. After all most of those series like Jack Benny are in the public domain. Here is a link pacifically to the Jack Benny Program http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=jack%20benny%20AND%20collection%3Aradioprograms But you should check out what other old time radio shows they have for download. I even found some Fred Allen shows.
