  1. Hello. There is a movie that I saw on TCM a while ago and all I can remember is that one of the main characters is a girl who lives in an apartment with the apartment marquee lights right outside her window. And her electricity is shut off or she needs another outlet so she tries to plug her hot plate into the marquee light. Ring any bells??
  2. Now, Voyager has a beautiful score, it changes moods as Charlotte Vale does. Also, almost any score from Hitchcock films. He know exactly how to use the music for setting the mood. I especially like Shadow of a Doubt.
  3. Does anyone know if there are internships available at Turner Classic Movies? I have tried to contact them, but I have not got any feedback. Just wondering if anyone knows.
  4. I am in the same boat! I write down every movie that I've heard or read about. Sometimes if I start watching a movie and don't finish it, I write it down too. I have a little book that has a hundred pages and at least half of them are filled with movies to see! I try to buy the ones I know are good, and then the others I get from Netflix or watch on TCM. After I buy or watch one then I cross it off. Eventually, I will watch them all... I hope. =) It makes me happy knowing that there will always be another movie to watch.
  5. Right after I posted this thread I went to my English class and my prof. walked by and asked my what I was reading and I showed her, it was a biography of Barbara Stanwyck, and she says "Oh, was she an actress?" I just looked at her dumbfounded. She's gotta be at least 47 and she doesn't know who Barbara Stanwyck was! That was really sad. Maybe she should read it.
  6. The one that I thought strayed from the truth was Mickey Rooney's autobiography "Life is Too Short." He went as far as to claim that Walt Disney had named Mickey Mouse after him! Also, when I look for books about Hollywood I pay close attention to who wrote it and what their bibliography looks like. If the author has worked for another credible source (i.e. newspaper, magazine, other companies) then most likely thier facts will be true. Amazon.com usually has good reviews written by people who have already read the books too, so that is another way to be sure the book is a good one.
  7. . Some of my favorites are Me by Katharine Hepburn, Doris Day: Her Own Story by A.E. Hotchner ( she dictated it), 'Tis Herself by Maureen O'Hara, My Story by Ginger Rogers, By Myself and Then Some by Lauren Bacall, etc... One of the most amusing ones I've read was Life is Too Short by Mickey Rooney. I'm pretty positive that not all of it was true ( He claimed that Walt Disney named Mickey the Mouse after him) however it was entertaining. How about all of my fellow movie lovers? Do you read these kinds of books?
  8. I find it fascinating to read autobiographies or biographies of classic movie stars. It really helps to get to know the actor/actress/director/ etc. Autobiographies are especially intresting, I think, because you can hear the story straight from the source.

  9. I think that 80s movie can be shown but I draw the line at 90s and 2000s. This is Turner Classic Movies. Films from a mere twenty years ago should not be thought of as classic as good as they might be.
  10. I usually go if I think the movie has some real substance. So movies are popping up that are just plain junk with untalented actors, bad scripts, etc. that I don't feel like wasting my time unless I'm positive it could be good. Usually the movies that come out during award season are the ones I go to see.
  11. I would want to stay in one of the Judy Garland/ Mickey Rooney movies. You could be in a show put on by the neighborhood kids and then head to the soda fountain after. A perfect day, in my opinion.
  12. I'm think that Joan Crawford was in it and I think her name was Louise.
  13. There was a movie where this woman was in a house and she kept hearing someone call her and she couldn't figure out where it was coming from. It was actually coming from speakers in the walls and someone was deliberately doing it. Thank you!
