  1. How utterly tasteless is it of TCM to allow John Landis to select The Brain That Wouldn't Die? I tuned in mid-movie, and when it went off and I realized that **** Landis was co-hosting, I wanted to throw something at the screen. Vic Morrow and 7 year-old My-Ca Dinh Le were DECAPITATED by the helicopter blades in the Twilight Zone accident. Don't tell me I picked up on this but no one at TCM figured it out before air time.
  2. Oddly, since they changed the forum software, I've found that the "Search Forum" feature does actually work, but only sporadically. Sometimes I can search all forums, sometimes some forums can be searched but others can't, sometimes I can't find any old posts at all by clicking on the user name, etc. There seems to be no pattern to the malfunction. I've wondered if TCM is using multiple servers, some of which perhaps have the software glitch while others don't; then, depending whichever one receives your search request, you either get good results or nothing at all, like a "bad gateway" error.
  3. " 'I think it would be fun to run the motor pool!' BAH!" Glad you enjoyed the CITIZEN DUANE poster. Unfortunately, it looks like Duane's presidential campaign has gotten derailed. Seems his opponents had no trouble finding some dirt on him. (nyuk! nyuk! nyuk!) Now that Doberman's greasy hat has been knocked out of the ring, and South Carolina has said "no" to Stephen Colbert's candidacy, where can we turn for comic relief in the upcoming election? Oh well, at least we've still got the usual gang of idiots! I wish Mayor Quimby would jump into the race... Teddy: "Boy, you don't k
  4. Wow, impressive work, vallo! I made a few lame attempts at locating the requested info, but had no luck at all. You must have really put in some effort to find the answer. That's what's so cool about this board; by and large, there are a lot of really nice, helpful people who post here. Good job!
  5. Interesting observation about 1950s San Francisco. I had the same thought while watching D.O.A. recently. The street scenes make it look like a one-horse town, there's very little traffic by today's standards. But of course, compared to San Francisco, L.A. & even San Diego today, that lack of traffic would be a good thing.
  6. SUSAN "You're funny, Mister. You've got dirt on your face." DUANE "It's not dirt. It's motor oil." SUSAN "You want some hot water? I live right here. I could give you some... hot water... if you want to wash up." DUANE "WASH UP? What, are you tryin' to kill me?
  7. The bit that was later recycled for use in The Beverly Hillbillies was heard a few times fairly early in the movie, back when they were riding in cars and doing sunny activities that were a bit more pleasant than shooting people with sniper rifles. Once the movie turned darker, they never used that music again. Trust me, it was note for note the same as one of the themes from the TV show. I halfway expected Vince Edwards to kill his prey with a double-barrel shootin' iron! Omigod, there's Mr. Drysdale in THE LINEUP! What does it all mean? And yes, tonight's guest programmer is a stran
  8. Sorry, Papa, our original posts must have been traveling side by side through the internet pipe. Several of us have been having the exact same dicussion right next door in the "STAKEOUT ON DOPE STREET, MURDER BY CONTRACT, ETC." thread. No one had yet commented on the ginchy guitar music when I started my post, but you finished your post first by 2 minutes (and I like your title better). The HILLBILLIES producers picked the same music as MURDER by picking the same musician! We've determined the music for THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES was done by the same guy, Perry Botkin, Jr, who also did the theme
  9. Yep, and he recorded all of that sweet multi-track, multi-speed background guitar music for the first few seasons of The Beverly Hillbillies. Nanoo-nanoo, Uncle Jed!
  10. Hey, Cool Cats and Kittens! STAKEOUT ON DOPE STREET was clean outta sight! Seriously, I had no idea what I was in for on that one, or I would have set up the DVR. Now, if TCM would only play FIEND OF DOPE ISLAND the night would be complete (yeah, like that could ever happen). MURDER BY CONTRACT is on now, and Perry Botkin's soundtrack is knockin' me out with that crazy tune from THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES and some other guitar music that sounds like a beatnik version of the theme from THE THIRD MAN. Swing it, Daddy-O!
  11. Rita Hayworth. Twice as beautiful as Marilyn Monroe, and ten times more tragic. I get a lump in my throat whenever I see GILDA (at least, I think it's my throat...) After shooting KANE and dating RITA, can you imagine how much of a disappointement the rest of Orson Welles life must have been?
  12. The Whistler movies were some of the best of the crime series that have been shown lately. Very enjoyable to watch many of the same players in different roles from one movie to the next. I managed to watch most of the movies but unfortunately didn't set my DVR to record any of them, now I wish I had.

  15. tcwollard, Please check your private messages. I may have found an official VHS copy for you at a very reasonable price. Best regards, spazhoward
