  1. most of Marilyn's movies are owned by Fox, which rarely leases their films to TCM since they have a competing channel, so it's not really TCM's fault.
  2. Good point, Mongo. How much did TCM have to pay to air Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? and I think TCM played All About Eve a few years ago, or maybe Im just imagining things.
  3. Has TCM ever aired a tribute to character actors? I would like to see Thelma Ritter profiled if she hasn't been already. Her work in All About Eve, Rear Window, Pillow Talk, and How the West Was Won is fantastic. She was nominated for six supporting Oscars before her death in 1969 and lost all of them. Her record is beat by Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole and tied with Deborah Kerr.
  4. I agree! I'm not a fan of westerns, but there are a few like Unforgiven, The Searchers, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that make me rethink my taste. Thank you TCM for airing Unforgiven. A true classic in every sense of the word.
  5. Just a reminder of what's coming to DVD today: The Bad Seed (1956) with Nancy Kelly (her oscar nominated role) Bette Davis and Karl Malden in Dead Ringer (1964) Tod Browning's Freaks (1932) and a Double Feature of Village of the Damned (1960) and Childred of the Damned (1963)
  6. It's kind of strange that recently, many Hollywood stars have passed away during the summer months. Lemmon, Matthau, Hepburn, Peck, Brando, and now Fay Wray.
  7. I was watching AMC today (I know, I know) and I was wondering if pan and scan movies are cheaper for the network. With widescreen DVDs usually outselling full frame DVDs, the public should be used to seeing letterboxed movies. So is pan and scan being cheaper why AMC runs cropped movies? And if it is TV for movie people. Shouldn't the movie people know the benefit of letterboxing?
  8. From the Digital Bits .com -- Disney has announced a 2-disc Mary Poppins: 40th Anniversary Special Edition for release on 12/14 (SRP $29.99). The film will be presented in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen. Extras will include the never-before-heard deleted song Chimpanzoo, a 50-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, new interviews, an interactive game, a new animated short based on an original P.L. Travers story, and the first ever reunion of Dick Van Dyke, Julie Andrews and co-composer Richard Sherman (the trio also provides audio commentary for the film). and go here to see what the artwork for the new Gone with the Wind DVD looks like: http://thedigitalbits.com/articles/miscgfx/covers4/gonewiththewindsedvd.jpg
  9. From Yahoo -- Frankly, my dear, I do give a damn. Mark November 9th on your calendar and load up on the tissues, because Warner Home Video will unleash no less than a four- disc mega-set of one of the all-time classics of the cinema, Gone with the Wind. Go ahead and laugh at the outdated morality, silly theatrics and overt racism, but here is a film that still ranks as one of the ten-best of all time the world over. Digitally restored via Warner's "Ultra- Resolution" hi-def technology, the film's original three-strip Technicolor negatives were digitally separated, realigned frame-by- frame, painstakingly restored and are, according the press blurbs, "miraculous." The four-hour film will be spread across two full dual-layer discs and presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and remixed in Dolby Digital 5.1 (but no need to worry, the original mono audio tracks are also included). And you want extras? How about a new full length, screen-specific audio commentary with film historian Rudy Behlmer, new narrated introductions by Christopher Plummer, two 60-minute apiece documentaries on Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh, the "Melanie Remembers: Olivia de Havilland Recalls Gone With the Wind" 45 minute documentary (featuring a brand-new interview), and the 1989 documentary "The Making of a Legend: Gone With the Wind," plus additional behind-the-scenes footage, extensive still galleries, trailers and, for a limited time, a 22-page collectible booklet that replicates the materials sent out with the limited 1939 and 1941 Roadshow engagements. Retail for the set will be $39.95.
  10. classicsfan, Sunrise is an amazing movie; you should see it as soon as possible. Along with The Gold Rush, it is my favorite silent.
  11. Is it true? On the Waterfront in Letterbox? The DVD version is in full frame and the only format TCM has played this film in before is full frame. I didn't even know it was widescreen. Why would the DVD be full frame?
  12. repetitive been wondering for weeks now why everyone doesn't just ignore leo. it's already obvious that his comments are dull and excessive and he only posts to annoy everyone.
  13. I know that a lot of Goldwyn movies are released by HBO video, which is owned by Time Warner the owner of TCM!
  14. It's not really a little-known gem, but it is the most underrated Hitchcock flick, Rope from 1948. It is probably my favorite movie by Hitch.
  15. I really liked this movie. The good thing about Woody Allen is his films aren't very long. The Purple Rose of Cairo is short and funny.
