  1. To me, it looks liked two different people. The one from a few months ago and the one from the past week or so. They look like two different people. If they're the same person all I have to say is, "what a makeover". They do sound the same though. I think one had red hair and the other was a brunette. If they're the same, I'd like to see Ben M do a makeover like that to the point he looks like a totally different person.
  2. I'm talking about the one with the Australian accent. I know they previously had a female host with an Australian accent, but who is the new host? I've just noticed her lately. And what happened to the other one?
  3. What's happened to all the Golden age classics from the late 30s, 40s, and early 50s that TCM used to show? They were what TCM was known for. They've always shown more modern movies, but they were the exception and not the rule. Now they're the rule not the exception. Get it together, programmers. Your current schedules suck. Let's get back to what made TCM the great channel it used to be.
  4. Jean Arthur looked pretty hot in "The More the Merrier". Hot bod! And she was 43 at the time.
  5. Portrait of Jennie, Johnny O'Clock, The Big Sleep, Casablanca, The Enchanted Cottage, None But the Lonely Heart, Best Years of Our Lives, Rebecca, Out of the Past, How Green Was My Valley, Random Harvest.
  6. Here's the Michele Legrand theme from the 1970 version of "Wuthering Heights". Theme music starts at about 2:15.
  7. I really like his film score of the 1970 version of "Wuthering Heights" with Timothy Dalton. Also, the film scores of Max Steiner are outstanding.
  8. I was wondering why they didn't have more of the Private Screenings this past weekend instead of repeating the same 5 or so all weekend. There must have been a reason.
  9. I'm really loving the Private Screenings with Ernie Borgnine. I think I saw it when it was on a few years back, but Ernie is a great interview. What a character. And Ernie was 92 when he did this interview in 2009. Still sharp as a tack and full of energy. He died 3 years later at age 95.
  10. I was just listening to an interview with Robert and I knew he used to go to Atlanta for a week every month to shoot his spots. He said they would shoot 150 intros and exits during that time. That's a lot. But then he had the other 3 weeks to do his own thing. You could tell he loved his job.
  11. And I'm sure his old friend Olivia de Havilland is feeling very sad today.
  12. Whenever he introduced "The Best Years of Our Lives" he never failed to mention that many people(including Bette Davis) thought it was the best movie ever made. I got the feeling he may have thought so, too.
  13. I'm so sad about this. TCM will go on but to me Robert Osborne and TCM were interchangeable. He was TCM. It was obvious he wasn't the same Robert the past few years he was on air, but it was still comforting to know he was there to carry on. How he will be missed. When human decency seems to be now viewed as some kind of weakness these days, Robert always came across as true example of decency and class. And how badly we need that. Godspeed, Robert. You were truly one of a kind.
  14. From my reading, the protesters weren't causing the vandalism. It was anarchists from off campus. Anarchists don't have a left-right political philosophy. They just want to cause mayhem and burn things down. They tend to show up when other protest are happening and the regular protesters get lumped in with the anarchists. I've heard the Oakland area seems to have a lot of those types.
  15. You're either a hard core reactionary right-winger or you're so far to the left that you end up where the hard right and hard left meet. Ex. hard core Bernie dead enders, Glenn Greenwald-types, etc.
  16. The amount the national debt goes up during an administration can be due to a president's policies or from policies from previous administrations. Or a combination. In Obama's case, the increase was mostly legacy debt that he inherited. Mainly from the hapless and horrible "W", but we're still paying off Reagan's debt. He got W's off-budget wars, unpaid for tax cuts, unpaid Medicare prescription plan, and Bush's Great Recession. Don't blame Obama, blame the guy you most likely voted for twice.
  17. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-people-christopher-idUSKBN14L0OZ William Christopher, who played the unassuming U.S. Army chaplain, Father Mulcahy, struggling to bring spiritual comfort to an anarchic surgical unit during the Korean War on the long-running hit TV series "M*A*S*H," died on Saturday. He was 84. Christopher, who was diagnosed with cancer about 18 months ago, died in his bed at his home in Pasadena, California, according to his longtime New York-based agent, Robert Malcolm. The actor's wife of nearly 60 years, Barbara Christopher, was with him at the time, Malcolm said. Christopher landed his signature role of Father Francis Mulcahy on "M*A*S*H" after another actor played the part on the show's pilot episode. He went on to portray the soft-spoken priest assigned to the fictional 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital for the duration of the series, which ran from 1972 to 1983 on the CBS network and continued to air in syndication for decades after.
  18. Yes, TCM has gone a dramatic change in what it shows. Many more newer, non-studio era movies than shown before. I'd say mostly over the past year. The usual critics will try to shut you down and say it's no different than before. THEY'RE WRONG!
  19. The best film version I've seen is the 1987 movie with Joanne Woodward, John Malkovich, Karen Allen, and James Naughton. Excellent.
