  1. A few months ago, TCM showed a new short film starring Sophia Loren. It was about a woman whose lover is breaking up with her via a phone call. It was directed by her own son! I believe it was called THE CONVERSATION. Do any of you know if this movie is on DVD? I would really like to purchase it. Thanks in advance.
  2. What's your favorite film era? In other words, what period do you most enjoy watching films that were made during? Mine is the 1960's. The old Hayes Office was gone, and filmmakers were being more daring and experimental in their movies.
  3. It is a brilliant film, and in some ways beyond its time. How much involvement to Frank Zappa have with it?
  4. I've got this film on video. A very strange, very surreal movie, a real favorite! My copy has an avant garde soundtrack recorded in the late 60's that goes perfectly with it.
  5. How extensive is TCM's archives? And are there certain films they don't have access to?
  6. I agree. It's one of my favorite sci fi films.
  7. One thing I'll say in defense of modern movies: They didn't have the Hayes Office hanging over them.
  8. WILD BOYS ON THE ROAD. A depression-era film about a group of teenaged boys (and one girl) who become hobos.
  9. Have any of you seen silent films of more recent years? SILENT MOVIE by Mel Brooks is the most obvious example. And it's a great celebration of the silent slapstick genre. Personally, I think it would have been better if it was in black and white. Then there's David Lynch's masterpiece ERASERHEAD. It does have dialog, but only a little bit. Kubrick's BARRY LYNDON is mostly silent. I've never seen it, yet. The surreal Canadian filmmaker Guy Madden has made a few silent movies.
  10. Well, thanks for the info. It does sound pretty complicated!
  11. I've got an idea: What if there was a cable network devoted entirely to foreign (made outside the US) movies? Perhaps TCM would be involved in setting it up. The films would be shown complete, unedited, without commercials, and subtitled. Perhaps films there were never imported to the US would be shown for the first time, too.
  12. A few years ago, TCM devoted an entire day to short films, both new and classic. Do any of you know if they'll be doing that again, anytime soon? I really enjoyed that.
  13. I'm surprised this movie doesn't have the cult status ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has! After all, they're both from the same period.
