  1. Posted 15 July 2014 - 11:23 PM I hate to bring up a potentially sore subject ;-) but are some of our faves doing a lot of time over at that other place, the Oasis. I don't fault them, I love them wherever they are, but how about a hello once in a while. :-) The new software might be a factor as well. I think we lost a few overall in TCM Land here due to that. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Reaching out to any of my Ramblers out there. Been hanging in the dark with some lethal femmes fatales. I find the change in this Board's interface just too
  2. Hi Ramblers! Lupino. How do you want her? She can be soft or hard; gentle or volcanic. She can break your heart...or tear it out. TCM will make it Ida Lupino day today with eight films featuring her acting and directing. You can have her any way you want her. Or you can take what Ida gives you. Whichever way...Ida, I idolize ya.
  3. Grimesy - ( :-) ) Good to see you are increasing your vocabulary on classic films by leaps and bounds. I see westerns, comedies, dramas, noir and a silent, on your latest list. You've got a myriad of types as well. Looks to be an enjoyable journey for you this diving into classic films and kibbitzing with folks on-line. You learn something from every film ( and ev'ry film fan ) whether it's a hit or a miss and we learn from you. This Message Board is about to undergo some big changes. Who knows what the heck will be on the other side of this all, but I just wanted to send you my regards here
  4. You're so right Miss G., how could I forget. Looks like this Message Board will be undergoing a dramatic change. If all is not lost, I'll see all you ramblers over on the other side of The Change. If not, you know where to find me.
  5. "Your mention of TV detectives in that time frame made me wonder why they didn't burn themselves out like the westerns did. There sure were a lot of them." Good question. Could it be because the detective story took place in current times? And do you remember all the DOCTOR shows? ( "Ben Casey" "Dr. Kildare" "The Nurses" "Medical Center" etc..... )
  6. I know I know I know. You all think I'm nuts, cuckoo, crazy for loving my Sammykins. Well someone else thinks he's kind of cool too: http://ladailymirror.com/2014/03/24/mary-mallory-hollywood-heights-samuel-s-hinds-pasadena-playhouse-founder-movie-actor/
  7. Hi there Miss G.: I don't know how I've missed this one all these years, it just never seemed to cross my radar. Next time, hopefully, it will air when I can watch start-to-finish. I hope you get to see the movie in its entirety; it's so wonderfully 60's. Now, you may not like it.....but I think it's worth getting under your cinematic belt. Jack Favell and I enjoyed it, and Moira...whew! She just tore it apart in that clever hilarious way she writes which you can check out here: http://silverscreenoasis.com/oasis3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4884&p=147048#p147048 I hope you see it
  8. King Rat writes: Hi, Maven! Looking forward to seeing you again at the festival. Thanks for recommending Her Sister's Secret so strongly. That's probably the one I'll go for. Hi there Brother Rat. I hope to see you at the festival as well, sans buttered popcorn. ( Lesson learned. ) "Her Sister's Secret" might be considered a "woman's film" but I enjoyed it very much and I hope you do too if that's your final choice. SueSue Applegate writes: Cinemaven, I love your photos! Tell us where you were and who you were with! I was at Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater a few months ago
  9. KING RAT writes: Three of the films which had interested me the most--*Sorcerer,* The Pawnbroker, and *Her Sister's Secret*--are, naturally, being shown at the same time. Hi there Brother Rat. I jumped for joy when I saw "Her Sister's Secret" on the schedule. I'd recently met the author of the Edgar G. Ulmer book and Ulmer's daughter up at Lincoln Center during the retrospective of Ulmer's work, and finally saw "Her Sister's Secret" streamed from Amazon. I enjoyed it so much, I watched it three times. I know our tastes are different, but I would strongly recommend that one for you.
  10. The conversations I read and have read here at this thread, often make me interested in seeing films I might not ever consider watching; a testimony to the good-natured ribbing...and great writing. ( That's how I wound up seeing "The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg." )
  11. Holy mackeral! - The movie airs Thursday afternoon. Oooh boy.
  12. I've never seen "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" but if I may interrupt for just one hot second, I have to say your comment here Miss G.: "I can see how young girls would be crazy for her, though. She massages their dreams while in reality she's only massaging her ego and protecting herself from the truth about her life. She can get away with fooling herself because she's in a small pond and dealing with impressionable young people...but put her in the big city shark tank and she'd lose a lot of that ego....and her illusions," ...is really quite a profound observation on a movie charact
  13. MISS GODDESS wrote: Drat I wish I'd received your reminder sooner...I was unconscious until about 1 in the afternoon on Sunday (didn't get to sleep until 6 am). I have never seen this movie and I think it sounds like great fun from your description. I don't think I've ever seen Franciscus in a movie..." - 10/17/2011 So I'm here to give you a Guilty Pleasure Alert for "YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE." Thursday - March 13th: 4:30 PM - YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE (1964) A novelist exercises a powerful spell over every woman he meets. Dir:?Delmer Daves. Cast:? James Franciscus, Suzanne Pleshette, Genevi?ve Pag
  14. BORZAGE ALERT! BORZAGE ALERT! Tuesday - March 11th 10:30 AM - LIVING ON VELVET ( 1935 ) - A guilt-ridden pilot finds a new outlook on life when he falls for a society girl. Dir:?Frank Borzage. Cast:? Kay Francis, Warren William, George Brent. BW-76 mins. I'm not sure where this fits in the lexicon of Borzage's work, but I'll find out Tuesday morning. I did see this once a long loooooong time ago and remember the "meet cute" scene with Francis and Brent at a swanky dinner party. But I'll go in there this time with a very new appreciation of Frank Borzage.
  15. THE MIGHTY ROMAN The dark and lovely RUTH ROMAN is featured today on TCM. Her name might not always be on the tip of our tongue, but there's no arguing Roman gives consistently good performances. Most times she's a strong tough dame...and I wouldn't have her any other way. 6:00 AM - ALWAYS LEAVE THEM LAUGHING (1949) - A vaudeville clown neglects his family while fighting for stardom. Dir:?Roy Del Ruth Cast:? Milton Berle , Virginia Mayo , Ruth Roman. BW-116 mins. 8:00 AM - THE WINDOW (1949) - A boy who always lies witnesses a murder but can't get anyone but the killer to beli
