  1. Perfect answer! Thanks. Sadly, it's another teevee gets a rest day. One that could have been devoted to George Sanders.
  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, now I understand. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
  3. Nelson and Jeanette can't act. Some thought they could sing - hence the TCM reviews, no doubt - but I thought they stunk. BTW, you can't trust TCM reviews, they are usually rapturous about everything.
  4. Wonderful information ...... and pictures. You've put a lot of work into this topic, TB. [..]
  5. Agree. In addition, there were so many stinko actors, an outstanding one like George could have easily been substituted.
  6. Wouldn't that be great. Too bad TCM doesn't pay any attention here - perhaps you can mention it on TCM Facebook or Twitter. Wait, never mind......
  7. Stick around. You ain't seen nuthin' yet.
  8. Nooooooooooooooo, wherever did you get that idea? Good observation and spot on, Gordon.
  9. Sam Elliott. I don't know if he knows movies (but that doesn't seem to be a prerequisite, judging from the choices), but he'd be oh so purty to look at. My suggestion: Eddie Muller. He is very learned and would light up the boards.
  10. Yes also to Silver Linings Playbook, blech. The Notebook made me gag.
  11. Ooopsie, almost off the page, TB. Gotta keep at it, I-N-C and all that jazz. I respect your opinion, TB. Are George Brent and Walter Pidgeon good actors? I know the other actors I hate - Wayne and O'Brien, e.g. - are very, very, very bad actors, but people seem to like Brent and Pidgeon. Do you? I had to turn off three perfectly good Virginia Bruce movies today, all in a row, because these skin-crawling hacks were front and center. I guess they made MGM gobs of money because the audiences in those days weren't any too sophisticated. If you say they are good, could you opine, br
  12. Good question. Besides Love Story, the most disgustingly nauseating 'romantic' movie in history, one of the films that I love to hate is I Married A Doctor. Even though Pat O'Brien, no stretch, given his other roles, is a misogynist and a narcissist and a chauvinist, his little wifey still rides off into the sunset with him, bowing and scraping and obeying. Man, I hate that movie.
  13. Thanks, TB. Today is going to be one of those 'I can't move until the PR break' schedules! Like the good old days. Few and far between. Excellent actor, Bruce was. I bet she didn't get the respect she deserved. Just another head in the herd. and not another platform to discuss what they're airing. Well......................
  14. No. But my teevee is getting a rest since TCM isn't classically classic all the time anymore. Tierney was lovely, Mitchum (sorry, you lovely man) was ignorable in his Westerns, Fairbanks Jr. was fun, and Mae Clarke was okay in some. All the rest, for the most part, make my teeth itch. And some whom I expected to like were disappointing, i.e., Ralph hitting Clarke, Dietrich, always a bore, ruining Stage Fright for me. I'm looking forward to Virigina Bruce. Too bad the lovely Warren William wasn't included (heck, if they can disgust me with John Wayne), and of COURSE, why couldn't a
  15. Fascinating. I guess American moviegoers in 1948 were REALLY ready to move on. 'Isn't It Romantic' and many double entendres played out against a backdrop of a bombed, burnt out Berlin in A Foreign Affair. What war. What loss of life. What concentration camps. Wow. What an insulting movie. I never did like Dietrich, but I am disappointed in Arthur.
  16. And RO and Ben M. don't have their own agendas. Please. By the way, you're really missing something.
  17. Did you know TCM is now on Facebook and Twitter?
  18. Why thank you, Andy. Never knew about that one. An even bigger SHAME ON YOU to TCM, they could have done the same with Ben M. Heck, even I would have even put up with RO, if that was her choice.
  19. She didn't get much respect in Parole Girl either. Again, eating a grapefruit (bet they were cheap back then) but this time slapped upside the head by Ralph Bellamy. Ralph Bellamy! I guess there was no feminism in 1933.
  20. Lizabeth Scott was an outstanding actor, better than most in her era. It's an outrageous shame that TCM didn't interview her when she was alive.
  21. Why do you think they're overlooked? By whom are they overlooked? Not by those with a brain who love classically classic movies. We know they're both wonderful. And catch them every chance we get.
  22. Holy mackerel, Auntie Em AND Uncle Henry. Ah, the good ole days of classically classic films at TCM.
  23. He was excellent. The entire series was excellent. I'm sad not to have seen Impact again, but the choices, on the whole, were very well chosen.
