  1. The great director turns 106 today! Everybody make sure to leave their birthday wishes! =D
  2. and sarah1493, i'll definitely be checking out your blog. Am i blind or do you not have a section for leaving comments?
  3. I have a blog I recently started at the beginning of the summer. If you're looking for a read, I'd love to get some feedback from people. http://ben-hur1860.blogspot.com/ Suggestions are wanted, since I am new to the blogging and all. Thank you!
  4. Can you post them up on this thread by any chance?
  5. It's a really great love story. I really enjoyed it when I saw it for the first time over winter break. Minelli knows how to make a great film, and Judy Garland is extremely cute.
  6. Thanks so much for all the information. I'll get back to you whenever I get going!
  7. I'm excited about this thread Popcorn, so kudos to your great idea! I have to disagree. I wouldn't say that A night to Remember is far better than Titanic, I would just say that they are for different tastes. Personally, I love the stuff that is produced between Kate and Leo in that film. I'm a plain old sucker for the sappy stuff, and there isn't much of that aspect in the older film. Then again, after viewing the film the other night, it definately deserves a lot of credit since Cameron redid so many of the scenes. I never knew that he did that until I saw it! Also, I can't wait
  8. Does anyone know more about this actress? I was captivated by her today when I watched The Garment Jungle (1957) for the first time. She was great in the film, and she is also really beautiful. Any great films that she starts in?
  9. Dewey, where do you suggest would be the best place to start with reading Pulp novels? I've been dying to get into them for a while now. I also can't wait for *MiMi*, sounds like a wild ride!
  10. Agreed, I as well enjoyed watching this film, just finished it. Crawford does a great job as a detective secretly climbing his way up to the top of the racket. The way the film ended though, it was so ridiculously silly, I couldn't believe it when "The End" flew across the bottom of the screen! *Lt. Banks: Be careful.* *Johnny Damico: Yeah, sure. I'll carry real bullets in my gun.*
  11. I'm pretty surprised they didn't choose something other then Three Days of the Condor. Didn't they realize that they aired that film last night for Faye Dunaway night ? ?
  12. Just to respond, your information was very insightful and much appreciated. All I was trying to say is that it wasn't a film that was made with the intention of making the U.S. look bad. A lot of the time when films are "based on a true story", there tends to be certain aspects that are left out, such as the info that you brought up. I can understand that I guess, because it's hard to make a film and be able to explain every little thing that comes along with it. If that was something that was required, we would have a lot less films "based on a true story".
  13. Thanks to both of you! And thanks for the MovieMorlocks, I never even noticed that icon before! Now I got a whole new world of TCM. Can't complain there!
  14. Even though I personally found it intriguing to hear about the S.S. St. Louis for the first time and learn how the United States didn't accept the passengers as refugees, I would never go as far to say that it "blames America for what the Nazis were doing". That's ludicrous! I mean, the only time the U.S. are actually mentioned in the film, besides the Roosevelt statements, is when the U.S. Coast Guards send them that message saying they are trespassing and will not be allowed in the territory. I suggest re-evaluating the film, because unfortunately, I think you missed the entire message.
  15. Thought I'd remind every one that there are quite a few film-noirs being aired tomorrow 7:00 AM The Garment Jungle (1957) 8:30 AM Affair In Trinidad (1952) 12:00 PM The Mob (1951) 1:30 PM The Lineup (1958) Have fun!
