  1. The Magnificent Seven hardly fits the definition of a cult movie. It was a major studio blockbuster with a huge budget and lots of publicity. It is, however, unquestionably a classic.
  2. Having just seen "The High and the Mighty", also with Robert Stack, I thought his scenes in "Airplane!" must have been spoofing those from that film.
  3. Several on your list are shown fairly frequently (e.g. A Patch of Blue was on last week!); many of the others are not in TCM's library (meaning TCM would have to pay $$$ to show them). However, you have listed some terrific films that would be great to see on TCM (again).

Now the best news yet, for those who've yet to see it, it's going to be shown in January! Feaito, I'm still waiting to hear what you thought of it since I put it in the 21 questions triv
  6. Unfortunately, this is nothing new. There could be a whole topic here (maybe there already is one?) about sons and daughters who got a chance to work in Hollywood because of their famous fathers or mothers, yet exhibit no particular talent (at least, on screen;-) when given the chance. One that comes to mind immediately is Charlie Sheen, however I'd then have to admit that Martin Sheen is actually talented;-)
