  1. I am telling you where its at. If you want to go then go. you say I'm gone then you don't leave. I said everything on this thread without the input of anybody. Now if you have something interesting you want to share then start your own thread. I guarantee I will not post on it in order to derail it. TCM is an old movie channel. but instead of allieviating boredom by increasing their stock of films, the committee has decided in your best interests to repeat the same movies for 15 years. its a tragedy because we are stuck with one channel. Of course everybody is frustrated by this acti
  2. I told you once DO NOT QUOTE ME unless you agree with me. But your inner immature jerk just can't stop.
  3. You just are a poor judge of good and bad movies. What you need to do is spend 50 years watching movies. By doing that you'll acquire the education necessary. If I say something it is not a theory. Its a fact. If TCM does not show a movie then they did not show a movie. its not a theory. THE RAVEN is his best pic. Did TCM show it? If not Why not? Don't go away mad. just go away.
  4. ARSON SQUAD the movie is a textbook on how the racket operates. High quality expensive goods are removed and replaced by cheap old stuff. Then the fire is set up by wiring the incendiary onto the phone line. Then the culprits merely call the number and the fire is lit. My best guess is the scarcity of the film is due to the studios not wanting people to get ideas & learn how from the film. RIFIFI taught criminals how to disable alarms by spraying foam into the mechanism. Sure. An arson investigator knows every way the crime is done. The movie is worth seeing and is 70 years o
  5. Glad you asked that. TCM can show any PRC picture it wants. WB has gigantic clout - they can show ANY movie ever made if they choose. I don't know if TCM has shown THE RAVEN. But I have not seen it on TCM. Its funny that Landers and Ulmer both made great Karloff / Lugosi pix and both ended up at PRC. Its can almost be considered a punishment being sent down.
  6. Restoration corruption 101 Metropolis - Tower of Babel sequence. it is preachy semi religious. But a point was trying to be made that by creating Metropolis the powers lost touch with the workers & communication was lost. At the end on screen amidst the destruction of the Tower it says: GROSS IST DIE ______ UND JHR SCHOPFER (a word was above the screen ceiling) UND GROSS IST DER MENSCH This is the english language version of complete Metropolis. Why is this in German? Here is a translation of the words from the Australian version in english. GREAT IS THE
  7. Those titles were made by Landers. But they suck. That is the block of films TCM committee used to avoid the accusation of blacklisting the man. I saw them & it was boresville. There are movies and there are Movies. Why did he have so many good pictures at PRC? Because he was free from big studio interference.
  8. Fritz Lang - was forced to leave germany to remain alive. He ended up here. He was asked to make a movie. He took a long time to decide. MGM happened. He made FURY. it was hated by mayer. Well that is a great start! Metropolis & Dr. Mabuse pt. 1 were restored - However I have problems with missing footage in both. When you restore a movie the No. 1 priority is to replace the images as the author intended. You cannot begin making judgments. Once you do that you slide down the slope into a garbage dumpster. Metropolis was filmed in two versions. German negative & Export n
  9. you got one old movie channel in the entire country. Controlled by a committee which by their actions resemble a Central Committee of the Communist Party. All information must go thru it in order to be placed in the minds of tv viewers IN USA. I do not accept this situation. I pay $100 a month to get tcm. I cannot allow my money to be used in this way. Its shameful. Its exactly what we accused other countries and condemned them for. We became the monster we hated. If you can't lick em join em.
  10. another Pabst classic DIARY OF A LOST GIRL since kino is selling all these jew hater movies then the academy should shut them down ala khj ch. 9, right? TCM has not shown it to my knowledge. A funny thing happened - true story - I tried to get the book thru university inter library loan. As my wife was an employee. She brought the application to the dept. & I was watching. The woman in charge got very angry at my wife. I went up there & said "what is the problem?" the woman in charge started backpedaling fast. started to want to disappear. she took the application an
  11. KAMARADSCHAFT - an attempt to show how trapped miners can be saved by the combined efforts of germany & France. the print tcm chose (Or rather committee approved) was so bad imagewise and had footage that was not in the film and the framing was so bad. Everything you could do to ruin it was done. This story formed the basis for the Harry M. Popkin film THE WELL which has not been cleared by the committee for consumption by you good people. In THE WELL there is race hatred going wild in a town when a girl is discovered trapped in a well. The town puts aside its squabble long eno
  12. CRIME INC. had to do with studios short changing unons while paying punk money to mafia operatives. its a fact. they were caught and jailed for extortion. AMONG THE LIVING a great movie not shown by TCM albert dekker as a psycho with an evil twin. sorta like mr. hyde with a bad side. "lift your skirt a little higher..... yeah a little higher .... ok now come over here.... if you do the right thing you can have the part........"
  13. the committee does not exist according to our dear overlords. you know that and I know that but does the committee know that? Stroheim's next picture THE DEVIL'S PASSKEY was destroyed. deliberately burnt. One of the most sought after films. Did not cost 1,000,000$.................. TCM has never shown Blind Husbands to my knowledge. WHY? Because baby Peggy was more important.
  14. Avalanche mine is in english lobby cards comes in a set of 8 and a pressbook the cover of the pressbook is 11 x 17 I can have it blown up to poster size but as yet I haven't done so.
