  1. 52 - I really think it's Wallace Beery 59 - Charles Boyer - definitely! 61 - George Raft, I think 66 - Gotta be Tallulah! 77 - Henny Youngman, I bet - seated next to Fanny Brice, which would make sense Thanks for posting this - really fun!
  2. Who was the presenter? And exactly what was the comment and in what context? I doubt he said, "3:10 is a gay movie." And that was the beginning and end of the discussion. It happens to be one of my favorite movies, as well as the Elmore Leonard story it's based on, so I'd really like to know what was said - maybe it is a gay movie, and maybe I just need a new way of looking at it! Any further information would really be appreciated.
  3. Do you know you have committed one of the great heresies of movie fan-dom?! I think the French really love this film and, therefore, if you're a TRUE connoisseur of film, you think it's an artistic masterpiece, full of symbols, subtlety, etc., etc. etc. I am not kidding here. I watched it of course, expecting more, and thought it pretty amateurish. But then, I laugh out loud at "Johnny Guitar" (and at the character named "The Dancin' Kid" - oh, please, you're killing me!!) and the French consider that a Western masterpiece. As a fan of Westerns, I just find it embarrassing.
  4. I would be willing to bet there's no substantive significance. Certain shades of lavender are very flattering to most complexions, and also were widely used in the Technicolor process. (Also used in stage productions.) I think it's likely that actors/make up artists/costume designers liked it because of its effect on complexions on film. But that's just my opinion.
  5. Yes, yes, yes!! "Easy Money" from 1948 is exactly it! Now I will never forget it - and I can't believe that I didn't remember Dennis Price is in one of the other segments. How in the world did you think of this - did you remember it, or do you have such outstanding search ability? I am awe-struck. Thank you a million (pounds, of course!).
  6. I need this name so I can sleep! Pretty sure from the mid to late 1940s. Could be Gene Krupa, not sure, but a drummer, with only his drumsticks, is playing percussion in what seems to be the basement of an industrial building. LOTS of different pipes and surfaces to use. My recollection is that it really *IS* an industrial basement! He drums on all different types of pipes, getting many kinds of different sounds, actually very musical. He kind of jumps from place to place to get the different sounds. Would love the name of the movie and the name of the drummer. Thanks!
  7. An anthology film, probably in the 1940s. I think all the segments were about people winning money or the lottery. Also, I think this one is British. (I could be wrong - it's just that I don't recall any of the actors, and I usually would in a movie like this if it were Hollywood.) The segment I particularly remember is about the double bass player in a symphony orchestra who is frustrated at always being placed at the back. The orchestra goes bankrupt, the bass player wins his money, and, of course, there are significant humorous changes to the orchestra. Please help if you can! Be
  8. The subject or the style or the music - each one deserved the attention it got! Please, MORE, MORE, MORE!! And include the historian and interviews by R. Osborne - the best college class you could ever take! Thanks to TCM for always surprising us and giving us something new to look forward to.
