  1. Wow, what an effort that was to type all that in, filmlover!
  2. I've haven't seen the book, but have seen a lot of movies which contain opera scenes like: The Great Lover (1931) Rose-Marie (1936) Maytime (1937) The Goldwyn Follies (1938) Bitter Sweet (1940) Rhapsody in Blue (1945) Wonder Man (1945) Interrupted Melody (1955) Rose-Marie (1936) is perhaps my favorite from among the Jeanette MacDonald films listed, and Rhapsody in Blue (1945) contains Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess". A movie I found both enjoyable and educational (wrt famous operas) was Interrupted Melody (1955) about Marjorie Lawrence (Eleanor Parker excels in this role). But my
  3. Thank you for your suggestion, allie, I had that one on my list too. Some highlights for the coming week (June 15-21) include Rashomon (1950) and the TCM premiere of Fanny and Alexander (1983), also being shown are Rules of the Game (1939) & Grand Illusion (1937), and The Thin Man (1934) is this weekend's TCM Essential, The Gold Rush (1925) is this Sunday's silent, Marion Davies's Show People (1928) will be shown as part of the Leading Ladies tribute, Gary Cooper's Man of the West (1958) will be one of the films shown as part of the salute to director Anthony Mann, and Jane Russell's b
  4. I just received my July Now Playing Guide and thought I'd add the following to this thread: TCM premieres include Wizard of Oz (1925), Faces (1968), A Woman Under the Influence (1974), Tom Jones (1963), Tokyo Drifter (1966), Mephisto (1982), & The Spirit of the Beehive (1973). Paul Newman movies will be featured on July 11th, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969); Dick Cavett is the Guest Programmer on July 24. And, coming in August per moira's note in another thread, a brand new Private Screenings with Angela Lansbury (and The Manchurian Candidate (1962))!
  5. And then read this thread: http://forums.turnerclassicmovies.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=77842&start=210#7781430 A sincere attempt by those who actually do care about the channel, so much so that they were willing to put forth the effort to understand and/or improve TCM's programming by putting together a single week's worth of classic movie scheduling (given all the restrictions) of their own. Their efforts were acknowledged (and used) by the person(s) who actually do this work for the channel.
  6. Please see "The End is Near" thread, 32 pages of (interesting?) reading started this past January by FredCDobbs: http://forums.turnerclassicmovies.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=76451&start=465#7774861 These types of threads are a regular 'feature' of these boards;-)
  7. You are Mr Right, take it away;-)
  8. Nope, neither answer is correct.
  9. Here's a link: http://forums.turnerclassicmovies.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?messageID=5012406
  10. I like the credit roll: http://forums.turnerclassicmovies.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?messageID=7766541 but also the one where a couple is trying to decide on what movie to watch at the Megaplex and there are all these clever names for the latest dreck (remakes etc.) that's in theaters these days;-)
  11. I think your tagline would need to be modified - ""Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's good." - unless your definition of classic is pretty broad. Actually, in perusing this list, perhaps "Bad Sci-Fi" would be more apt;-)
  12. I'm reading this, appropriately enough, right after this week's Darkness After Dawn feature has just aired, LOL! Great post, MattHelm. A work of art! Oh, and thanks for your vote;-)
  13. Y&I was just on TCM last Friday too, but I didn't watch or tape it to verify it either way. In any case, I'll offer up another question: One Plus One Equals One was the original title of what Hitchcock film?
  14. Whether you like DeMille's remake of his 1923 silent - The Ten Commandments (1956) - or not (and I do, though I'll admit I haven't seen it in years), I thought this parody was too funny (if a bit too sacrilegious for some, including some profanity at the end) not to share: BTW, if you're going to talk about bad Sean Connery movies, you have to include Outland (1981), which rots as opposed to rocks;-)
  15. It's called Something New (1920): http://www.classicfilmguide.com/index.php?s=pageA&item=109
  16. I didn't mean to offend, hope I didn't. As far as the answer to the question, I thought the answer might be related to all three films containing a scene within a mill, except that I think the Young and the Innocent sequence is actually just a barn.
  17. No need to check The Manxman (1929) (the director's last silent), Hitchcock didn't begin his cameos until Blackmail (1929) out of necessity (needed more background actors, so he put himself in the picture).
  18. I like the early 1930's 'tradition' of showing each of the main characters in short clips with their names as well; it's certainly helped me learn the names of some classic (and sometimes obscure) actors and actresses. It served the studios to introduce their (future) sound era 'stars' to the audiences, even if it was problematic to certain storylines (e.g. where those characters weren't introduced until late in the film, or even some whose roles were cut significantly during editing). I'm not sure when the habit of running most or all of the credits at the end (and few, if any, at the be
  19. cat, welcome back (after two years)!
  20. I will look forward to seeing your entry in the next challenge, movieman, and would love to have seen an entry from coffeedan (who'd said he'd been working on one), mongo, vallo, feaito, bollywood, and so many others who contribute their film knowledge to these boards. My vote (in this challenge) goes to MattHelm.
  21. Some highlights in this week's (June 8-14) schedule include an Alexis Smith birthday salute followed by a couple of TCM premieres "starring Diana Lynn" on Thursday, one feaito recently recommended Loretta Young's pre-code Midnight Mary (1937); a day early birthday salute for Judy Garland on Friday, this week's TCM Import is the hilarious Divorce, American Style (1961); this week's Sunday silent is Harold Lloyd's Speedy (1928); the second installment of Leading Ladies begins with Greta Garbo's great Camille (1936) next Monday night and continues through Tuesday night when the second tribute to

    Merrily We Live

    I agree, the film is hilarious (I actually like it better than a similar film, My Man Godfrey (1936)). Billie Burke had me in tears.
