  1. Yeah, the sound level was so low I was not sure but what some of the original dialogue was left in--the Wayne was very Wayne-like but sounded about ten years too young! As if Wayne was 15 instead of about 25.
  2. In fact, in "Foney Fables" referred to in the OP the house in Tom Thumb is likely wattle and daub, the branches they are trying to grow on the trees would be the wattle. Daub is mud. You save 20 or 30 years by harvesting thin branches but leaving the tree.
  3. Trail of the Lonesome Pine from 1936, but shot in color, has a father & daughter (Sylvia Sydney) who live alone but in an isolated feuding Appalachian setting, Fred MacMurray comes to build a railroad.
  4. Offhand I say the audio clip sounds like typical movie serial music. In fact it reminds me of the theme from the second Batman serial, "Batman and Robin" from 1949. But when I check it does not sound identical. Maybe someone more musical than I could check.
  5. Harvesting branches (pollarding) but leaving the trunks or even entire small trees but leaving the stumps (coppicing) to grow again is traditional forestry. Often practiced in period England. Certain trees react to these practices better than others. Clever of the film makers.
  6. Ya got it! Thanks to you & others for correct answer & proof.
  7. Well, I find a lot of women actors of the period similar to each other but thought it could be Lombard. That looks like C Grant's cleft chin above. There's some leather & brasswork there. They appeared together in The Eagle and the Hawk 1933, and Lombards hair was cut that way in that picture. I looked for lobbies and stills from the film and did not find that pose, but I say prove me wrong.
  8. Yes, I'm sure it's Garson, but in a quick glance on Friday I thought it looked iffy, then on Saturday couldn't find it again. Thanks to all the help I got the location, but spent a long time (on dial-up) looking at it over and over on Saturday after logging out. The blue hair woman has a wider jaw than Stanwyck so I'm sure I haven't caught TCM in an error. Someday I'd like to figure out what role that blue hair pic is from. Maybe I'll find out on the 14th! I did do some googling of stills but no joy yet. Maybe when I get back to my DSL hookup, on Monday. Cheers.
  9. Thanks to you as well. Here's the deal I mentioned. On day 14 is Peter Lorre centerstage. At right is a woman I take to be Stanwyck with black dress, bright blue hair. Hit day 15 and Garson is centerstage, all grey-blue--different picture, and Rita Hayworth is at right, all violet. Hit day 16 and Hayworth is center, same violet picture. Woman on left is back in black dress blue hair again. Meanwhile, before and after Stanwyvck's day she is offstage in a creamy looking flapper getup but on her day is in a business suit. So I'm right or I'm wrong. Checking further (dialup is so slow).
  10. That second link was it! Thanks so much. No way I was going to find it on my own. You have really made my day.
  11. Just read through the thread and am thinking of changing my order. I was going to say: An interocitor (but already assembled--I'm all thumbs) but I think maybe I'd be happy with a set of resort/casual clothes from Mr. Hulot's Holiday or maybe Playtime. I can't recall, saw them so long ago. There was a jaunty little soft hat like a sailor's hat but folded just so.
  12. Yesterday I saw a charming feature Summer Under The Stars based. A little carnival show stage with the 31 stars available to appear on the stage in sequence or on demand. The preceding star was visible leaving, the next star about to emerge on the other side. In fact I thought I spotted an "error" in it, re: Barbara Stanwyck. Anyway, today on another computer I can't find it and I can't access the history of the first computer. Can anyone explain how to find it, please? I wanted to show it to The Wife.
  13. Thanks for the links. I did not do a lengthy appraisal of the schedules you linked, but rather looked at one week's worth of programming. Then I imagined what I would actually watch. Two movies in full per weekday tops, maybe double that on weekends. I would have seen just as much stuff in 1998 as I would in 2007. Some of it stuff I've seen a lot, some of it stuff I had never seen. All of it stuff I want to see. Only two bases for concern or complaint I think are: 1) If you you do nothing but watch TCM 24 hours a day, you will now see more recent stuff, and might thus be disappointed more. 2) If there is some category you want specifically (stuff not now on DVD, stuff from a particular studio or a particular body of films that get bought/sold/licensed as a group) and TCM isn't programming them nowadays you might be disappointed more. So, I'm not yet disappointed.
  14. How lately is "lately"? I've been watching TCM for about 3 years now and can't say I've seen a troubling amount of recent films (say, 1965 and more recent) in what I might consider lately. There are 24 hours in a day, after all. On the other hand, they continually bring out stuff that I've not seen before from the silent days up to 1965, and which perhaps they have not shown or only shown some time ago. But I could gladly depend on other services for the later stuff if they'd stick to pre-1960 (but I'd like them to feel free to show To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Incident, and so on). Do you have some data? Are all their old schedules available?
  15. Ah, Film Fatale, you are right. My error. I still want to see it--very late Will Rogers. As for "unseen Ford," I'll advance The Plough and the Stars to paramount status. I saw The Informer in the last year or so and was impressed, had imagined I would be bored but the sheer storytelling of Ford captured me. EDITED IN: Clearly my brain was searching for Dr. Bull, as you mention and link to. That's got to be the third Ford/Rogers film I was sure I hadn't seen, but without your correction I would have been on the alert for the wrong thing. Thanks.
