  1. I hope they filmed the tribute so everyone else can watch it some day. They could show it on TCM or as an extra-special feature on a DVD. I also hope Robert Osborne tries very hard to get a long TCM interview with her.
  2. sounds like The Last Child (1971) co-starring Van Heflin
  3. decotodd, I'd very much like to hear ALL about the tribute next week. You are so lucky! I hope you have a good time & can report back.
  4. Luise Rainer wasn't a superstar but she did win two Oscars in the 1930s.
  5. I forgot about child/teen stars Deanna Durbin & Jane Withers. Both were very big in the 1930s and still around today. Olivia de Havilland is just about the only big star left from that era. I liked seeing her on the Errol Flynn biography and the GWTW interview. I wish she would record audio commentaries for some of her films. Being a Warner Bros. star, TCM owns most of her earlier films. I hope they ask her. Film historians are O.K., but I also enjoy hearing from someone who actually worked on the film I'm watching. I really enjoyed one of her last films, LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA, which they show on TCM but has never been released on VHS or DVD.
  6. Thank You, Path. Time flies, it really does! I still check in sometimes. I think you, feaito, and all the others are so amazing. And I loved all the old Hollywood stories by Larry who knew many stars years ago. I envy everyone who can go to the Olivia de Havilland tribute. I just hope they are smart enough to perserve it on tape. It really is an event to remember. I would go in a minute if possible. I think she is the last STAR from the 1930s, not counting child stars Shirley Temple & Mickey Rooney.
  7. Neil, Are you going to the Olivia de Havilland tribute on June 15? I read it sold out very quickly. It sounds like a wonderful once in a lifetime event. I hope they film it so other fans who can't go can watch it in the future. Did you ever interview her? Thanks.
  8. `Superman' star Christopher Reeve, an advocate for spinal cord research, has died at age 52 Associated Press BEDFORD, N.Y. - Christopher Reeve, the star of the "Superman" movies whose near-fatal riding accident nine years ago turned him into a worldwide advocate for spinal cord research, died Sunday of heart failure, his publicist said. He was 52. Reeve fell into a coma Saturday after going into cardiac arrest while at his New York home, his publicist, Wesley Combs told The Associated Press by phone from Washington, D.C., on Sunday night. Reeve was being treated at Northern Westchester Hospital for a pressure wound that he developed, a common complication for people living with paralysis. In the past week, the wound had become severely infected, resulting in a serious systemic infection.
  9. Veteran Hollywood reporter Nikki Finke has learned that actor Christopher Reeve is dead, according to sources close to the actor. He died suddenly Sunday. News of his death has not been reported publicly yet. Reeve was just mentioned Friday in the second live presidential debate by John Kerry.
  10. Hi bunderw170, I'm glad you liked THE WORLD CHANGES. I'm always happy to see Aline MacMahon. I taped it this time and will try to watch it again soon.
  11. I also like THE RAINS CAME. Another pretty good Loy film not on this month is BROADWAY BILL directed by Frank Capra. Last week Robert Osborne mentioned TCM was showing 6 of the 7 films that co-star Loy and Clark Gable. NIGHT FLIGHT (1933) is the only MGM Myrna Loy film TCM has never played. Besides her and Gable it also stars John Barrymore, Robert Montgomery, Lionel Barrymore, & Helen Hayes. I wonder what's the problem with it? I've seen a copy of it listed on ebay. There are also a number of her Warner Bros. films that have never been on TCM, including some silents. One thing unusual about her is that she was just about the only TOP star (named Queen of Hollywood & in the top 10 list) that hardly ever had the LEADING role in any of her films. Not always, but most of the time, she usually supported the leading man. Although extremely popular, she stopped working during most of World War II, only making one film. She had some big hits in the mid-to-late 1940s & early 50s: BEST YEARS; BACHELOR AND THE BOBBY-SOXER; MR. BLANDINGS; CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. But like other wonderful actresses of her era (Irene Dunne, Jean Arthur, Claudette Colbert) film roles dried up by the early-to-mid 1950s. She also re-married (to a diplomat), moved to (I think) Washington, D.C. and devoted herself to other matters. After her divorce in 1960 she worked mostly on stage. I remember seeing her on the episode of LOVE, SIDNEY (1982). It was her final acting credit. The entire episode revolved around her character (a famous actress) but she only appeared in the last segment of the show. For such a short scene it was funny and very touching. She was wonderful! I would LOVE to see it again. Amazingly, Myrna Loy was NEVER nominated for an Oscar.
  12. I loved the MYRNA LOY tribute narrated by Julianne Moore. The movie stars who voice the star tributes really seem to like the person they talk about. TCM made this one extra special (to me at least). I hope they show it many times. I was also hoping for some other rare in-between Myrna Loy film segments. I saw the WIFE VS. SECRETARY trailer but not much else. I've taped nearly everything between her Wednesday night films but they only show non-Loy segments/shorts. Since she is the STAR-OF-THE-MONTH I was hoping for some rare film shorts she appeared in. TCM has to have something rare, other than movie trailers. Something never played on TV before.
