  1. No, Clue #7 - services requiring payment in advance
  2. No, no, and no Clue #2 - a comely sister
  3. To Kill a Mockingbird? Message was edited by: path40a
  4. More info: Robert Duvall has replaced Doris Day on August 6th. Twenty of the actors/actresses have never been saluted before (during Summer Under the Stars), and there will be 26 TCM premieres throughout the month.
  5. Lots of pre-codes plus: Private Screenings: Child Stars (2006) Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) Skyscraper Souls (1932) Anatomy Of A Murder (1959) A couple of Shirley Temple films and a Saturday serial - Superman (Chapters 1- 5) (1948) - thanks MattHelm!
  6. A few notable (not often shown or relatively unknown) films on this coming weekend's schedule worth pointing out: Friday, Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945) & Kind Lady (1951) Sunday (early Monday) - Cops (1922) - one of Buster Keaton's best
  7. I think it'd be great if we could create our own polls, right on these boards within one of our posts. I've been to other websites where that's possible and it's kind of fun too.
  8. On-line, by August tab, the schedule shows Robert Duvall (beginning with Second Hand Lions) as the Star of that day On-line, by next month (e.g. August) link, shows a Marlon Brando schedule for that day August Now Playing Guide, which I just received, shows Doris Day for that day Which is correct?
  9. Buddy pictures are fairly common; you could count dozens of Westerns and war movies among them. I too think it's interesting what's been done with it otherwise. For instance, some uncommon ways in which this theme has been employed include: gangster films like The Roaring Twenties (1939); musicals like Anchors Aweigh (1945), On the Town (1949), and It's Always Fair Weather (1955); of course, the recent TCM showing of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) (and you'd have to toss in The Sting (1973) too); and more recently in movies like Back to the Future (1985), Planes, Trains, & Aut
  10. Best bet this week is the TCM Essential, Foreign Correspondent (1940)! http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=84062&tstart=0
  11. For those who haven't seen them, let me recommend two of this Thursday's shorts - The Hard Guy (1930) starring Spencer Tracy (who exhibits his edge, early in his career) and Pete Smith's Movie Pests (1944), which was nominated for an Academy Award.
  12. It's from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. For a list of all the film clips included in this Chuck Workman short, see: http://www.classicfilmguide.com/index.php?s=100years which was compiled by members of these TCM boards.
  13. Well, George Brent served a purpose, as did Herbert Marshall, Walter Pidgeon, etc.. These leading men played opposite some of Warner Bros.'s and MGM's most powerful leading ladies, the women were the stars. Their roles were secondary by design. No, not character actors, but somewhat emasculated leading men. Not every leading man could be a virile as James Cagney, Gary Cooper, or Clark Gable (just ask James Craig;-) Message was edited by: path40a
  14. I haven't seen that many Hedy Lamarr films myself. In fact, I haven't seen My Favorite Spy (1951) despite the fact that it airs on TCM somewhat frequently ... and I've not seen Samson and Delilah (1949) either, not that it's a comedy;-) It's been a long time since I saw Her Highness and the Bellboy (1945) and I don't think I could recommend it either. But there are parts of The Heavenly Body (1944) worth seeing and Tortilla Flat (1942) is a lot of fun. H.M. Pulham, Esq. (1941), not a comedy either is worth seeing, like Ziegfeld Girl (1941) is. Come Live with Me (1941) is one of her bes
  15. Sounds just like A Stolen Life (1946) with Bette Davis playing the twins and Glenn Ford as the man she marries. It was on TCM June 1st, Bette Davis was Star of the Month in May, but her films bled over into June from May 31st. http://www.classicfilmguide.com/index.php?s=other_reviews&item=107
  16. Are you being facetious, Jack? Hedy was in a whole bunch of comedies, though she usually played 'the straight' for William Powell, Clark Gable, James Stewart or others. Obviously, she's no comedienne.
  17. The second film sounds vaguely like Gaslight (1944) with Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, which will next be on TCM August 29th. Check the TCM Movie Database for a picture and movie clip: http://tcmdb.com/title/title.jsp?stid=166
  18. No, I haven't seen Tokyo Drifter (1966), I was just making note of the fact that it was a TCM premiere ... thanks for the warning;-)
