I saw THE MORTAL STORM some time ago and thought it was very good. Margaret Sullavan & James Stewart are wonderful. I read in a Stewart biography that in real life he was in love with Sullavan for many years. I remember seeing Robert Stack in an interview (maybe on TCM) talking about the making of the film and an unpleasant German official who visited the set. Margaret Sullavan was also great in BACK STREET (1941).
The new host might turn out to be O.K., but I really enjoy Robert Osborne. I'd also like to see the old AMC hosts Bob Dorian, Nick Clooney, and that other soft-spoken old guy. I wish TCM would hire them, maybe for the daytime and late-night. I sometimes just watch the introductions because I've seen the film so many times. I'd also like to see Osborne co-host his introductions with celebrities or their children, grandchildren.
