  1. whoopigldbrgfan, Please excuse my audacity. I took the liberty of posting your query in another movie forum. A participant thereon believes that the gent depicted in your first image (http://home.earthlink.net/~rlkeller60/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/manno1.jpg) is silent movie actor and director King Baggott (http://www.classicimages.com/1997/november97/baggot.html). I think that his guess is right. Check out a picture of Baggott (http://silentgents.com/Directors/BaggotKing.jpg'>http://silentgents.com/Directors/BaggotKing.jpg'>http://silentgents.com/Directors/BaggotKing.jp
  2. Silent movie fans anywhere near San Francisco next weekend will want to hie themselves to The Castro theatre. The palatial, 81-year-old landmark will be presenting its eighth annual silent film festival. The following classics will be shown: * The Disney "Alice" adventures * Carmen (directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starring the ill-fated Wallace Reid) * Tepeyac and Aniversario de la Muerte de la Suegra de Enhart (Anniversary of the Death of Enhart?s Mother-In-Law) - two silent Mexican movies * The Crowd (this classic, directed by King Vidor, was recently broadcast on TCM) *
  3. This should be discussed in the Science-Fiction forum, but since we're on the subject . . . Well, I saw Terminator 3 and was thoroughly unimpressed. Fifteen minutes into the story I was bored. However, I was momentarily revived during the quite impressive, but utterly gratuitous car chase scene. If this is science-fiction, then woe betide the state of the genre. Not that Terminator 3 is a bad movie. But it sure ain't no T2! The ending of Terminator 3 sets up yet another sequel. But unlike Arnold's relentless, rejuvenating cyborg, I won't be back.
  4. Don't forget The Whistler series that starred Richard Dix and which featured several entries that were directed by William Castle. I've seen only two Whistler thrillers, and I immensely enjoyed them. I wish Columbia (or whoever owns the rights to them) would release them on video and DVD . . . not to mention to television.
  5. "Bleeding heart liberal"? Front and center, and damned proud to be one too! As for branding conservatives "right-wing militarists," hey, I calls 'em as I sees 'em. Regarding the "Control Voice," Man, how about that John Ashcroft? Talk about control. Like I was saying to one of my fellow bleeding heart . . . Oh, you were referring to The Outer Limits! My mistake . . . The Zanti Misfits is in my Top Ten Faves of The Outer Limits episodes. There was another OL episode that featured one of the Misfits, but I cannot remember the name of it. Other First Season Favorites The A
  6. Slappy, Not only have I seen The Terminator, I own it and also Terminator 2. I also was fortunate enough to actually watch a segment of The Terminator being filmed in North Hollywood when I lived there. If I correctly recall, writer Harlan Ellison filed a lawsuit (and won) against the filmmakers of The Terminator because he thought that they purloined their story idea from his Soldier episode on the original The Outer Limits. However, in The Terminator, the treatment of the story was quite different from Ellison's approach. To me, the casting of Arnold Schwarzenegger, an action-adv
  7. I consider the following movies horror-science-fiction hybrids: * Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (probably all versions and variations) * Frankenstein (1931, but almost any movie involving Frankenstein, the doctor or the monster) * Island of Lost Souls. Ditto Island of Dr. Moreau. * The Invisible Man (1933) * The Vampire (1957, starring John Beal) * The Werewolf (1956, starring Steven Ritch) To me, The Terminator movies are more a blend of the science-fiction and action-adventure genres, a trend that I, quite frankly, do not applaud. I'm not much of a fan of macho action-adventure flicks
  8. I'm with rtcarter47 on this one. Right on, rt! I just wasted thirty preciously sacred minutes of my life searching for the way to participate in the TCM DVD vote. After jumping through several hoops to finally find the answer in this TCM forum (a "joy" that required me to submit personal info to Screen Name Service - yeah, right, like I'm going to give SNS my real address), I'm more than a tad incensed to learn that only members of AOL (hawk ptooey!) can participate in the TCM DVD vote. In the memorable words of Joe E. Brown: Awwwww, snail frookie!
