  1. I did catch some of the films last night. *Spellbound* was on a little late for me, so I watched my DVD of it instead. And as for the 48 posts (I guess this makes 49) I really just like reading the massage boards. I normally comment when I have something to say or feel like I have something to add. I enjoy classic films, but I wouldn't say I'm very knowledgeable about them (well,for my age I'm knowledgeable, but not as a whole). Plus, I'm the type of person who likes to know what their talking about before I go tell everyone else. After reading all this stuff, Hitchcock is a topic I feel knowl
  2. For my paper, my professor wants us to have a good number of sources, so what I mentioned is a culmination of ideas from various books. Here are the names of most of the relevant ones: _Hitchcock?s Romantic Irony_ _Hitchcock?s Motifs_ _Hitchcock?s Films_ _The Art of Hitchcock: Fifty Years of His Motion Pictures_ _Hitchcock?s America_ My paper is mainly focusing on *North by Northwest* and *Spellbound*. My professor wanted us to pose three questions to base our paper around. Mine are: 1.How do Hitchcock?s films North by Northwest and Spellbound use adventure and mystery as a
  3. I'm writing a paper about some of Hitchcock's films, and I must say all the information I've found about his films has been very interesting. The concept of how the quest is not really a quest, it is just the means to an end, and the MacGuffin is an object that helps the plot proceed.... These are just some of the many thing I have read. There is an entire book about all the motifs he uses in his films; it's all very interesting. I thought it may be interesting to discuss his films from more of an analytical view. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts.
  4. I personally don't consider Pillow Talk a musical. I love the movie. I think it is adorable, but looking at other films of the time that were musicals, I feel like Pillow Talk is not one. Just my opinion though.

    YENTL (1983)

    I asked earlier if anyone knew when this DVD was coming out, so now I'm back to answer my own question. It comes out Feb. 3rd 2009. One version is a special edition 2 disc set with tons of bonus features, including commentary and deleted scenes. There is more information about the actual contents at various internet sites. If you're interested, check it out.
  6. Deafen Flechrj... Is it Jeff Chandler? I'm not sure because there are 3 E's in the scrambled name, but this was as close as I could get. Let me know if I'm correct, if so I'll post another.
  7. The 31st Kennedy Center Honors aired last night. The honorees were Morgan Freeman, Twyla Tharp, George Jones, Barbra Streisand, Pete Townsend, and Roger Daltrey. Does anyone have any opinions, thoughts, or comments about the night? Please post them!
  8. I recieved a few DVD's, but I would say the only classic I got was *Spellbound*. The other 2 were *The Owl and the Pussycat* and *Mamma Mia!*, but I was happy with all 3, yea for movies
  9. THEM REAL MEN = Ethel Merman Next: CELL KEY RAG
  10. Can you unscramble the name of this famous classic actor/actress? Find the name and then post the next one! Have fun! PUN BUY RED HARE
  11. I saw somewhere that Notorious is coming out on DVD Oct. 14th. Does anyone know if this is true? It is such a great movie; I've been hoping it would be released on DVD.
  12. I really enjoy reading all the posts in this thread. To be honest, when I'm bored, I often just get a piece of paper and list movies from A to Z (just like this thread ). It can be become very fun and challenging if you pick categories such as only comedies or movies with certain actors. Anyway, thanks for the wonderful thread!

  14. Every time AFI releases these lists, I'm always left with mixed feelings. This year, I felt they didn't select the 10 best genres. They left out big ones such as Musicals, War Movies, basic Comedy, Drama, Horror, etc... This is their list, incase you didn't get to see it yet. Personally, I was disappointed in the romantic comedies list mainly because it's one of my favorite genres. I felt they left out very good romantic comedies such as Bringing Up Baby, Pillow Talk, What's Up, Doc?, The Shop Around the Corner, Father Goose... I know all of these can't be on the list, but I feel that some are
  15. The Philadelphia Story Love Story or Toy Story
  16. The Great Gatsby The Great Escape OR Escape from Alcatraz
  17. Thanks tobitz for letting me take your turn (and FYI I'm a she, not a he. Sorry, that's one of those things that really bothers me). So the next one is Leslie Caron to Sidney Poitier. Originally, I wanted to see if someone could find it with 5 connections, but feel free to do whatever.
  18. I don't know if this has been done before, sorry if it has. Basically, all you have to do is connect two people in the number of steps stated. For example: Doris Day to Katherine Hepburn in *2*. Doris Day was in That Touch of Mink with Cary Grant. Cary Grant was in Bringing Up Baby with Katherine Hepburn. There probably is more than one way to do each of these. If you connect all the dots, you get to start another one. It should be fun and easy! Leslie Caron to Sidney Poitier in *5*.
  19. All the King's Men The Prince and the Pauper or The Prince of Tides?
  20. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory New Word: Autonomy
