  1. He was a titan of the industry and deserves to be mentioned, though my expertise in Broadway songwriting is quite limited, and I'm probably not the greatest authority on him or his work. I did recently read most of the new Mike Nichols biography by Mark Harris, and Sondheim is mentioned a number of times as a close acquaintance of Nichols. I forget now if Nichols ever directed any shows with Sondheim numbers on Broadway, but Shirley MacLaine sings Sondheim's "I'm Still Here" in Postcards from the Edge.
  2. Read TxFilmFan's post on p. 1. Four HItchcock films have directly been affected - Rebecca, Spellbound, Notorious and The Paradine Case. I think more detailed reasons for their disappearance appeared on a previous thread that discussed this topic. They all used to air routinely on TCM, but I don't think any of them have aired in four years.
  3. That was my first thought, but sounds like this is a different movie.
  4. Yeah, my heart goes out to all three leads for the unhappiness they're experiencing. I don't really root for one over the other. It's one of those movies, and I'm sure this has been a thread topic before, that I watch and somehow get wrapped up in the fantasy that the ending will be different this time.
  5. It's top-heavy with its stars, but I've always thought of it as an ensemble film, at least the idea I have of one in my head without ever having looked up a definition, in that its scenes and speaking parts are distributed liberally all around, admittedly sometimes more than others. But very ensemble-y for its first half or or two-thirds.
  6. Primetime January 2 It's movies with "green" in the title, though MGM's The Green Years is absent. How Green Was My Valley (Maureen O'Hara, Walter Pidgeon) (20th Century Fox, 1941) The Corn is Green (Bette Davis, John Dall) (Warner Bros., 1945) Silent Sunday Nights The Three Musketeers (Douglas Fairbanks, Nigel de Brulier) (United Artists, 1921) TCM Imports A couple of French documentaries A Letter from Siberia (George Roquies) (Dist. in the US by New Yorker Films, 1970) My Journey through French Cinema (Bertrand Tavernier, Francois Truffaut) (Dist. in the US by Cohen Media Grou
  7. Daytime January 2 after the ... um ... repeat performance of Noir Alley, I'm not sure what the theme is. They all have romances in them, some more than others. But it could just be a random Sunday. Romeo and Juliet (Norma Shearer, Leslie Howard) (MGM, 1937) The More the Merrier (Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea) (Columbia, 1943) Light in the Piazza (Olivia DeHavilland, Yvette Mimieux) (MGM, 1962) My Favorite Year (Peter O'Toole, Mark Lin-Baker) (MGM, 1982)
  8. Primetime December 1 I don't know what the theme is, because only one movie airing is made known to us. I hope this isn't going to be like December, where the schedule had dozens of gaps. I still don't think I know 20 or 30% of the movies that are airing in December. Anyway, what we have is: Penny Serenade (Cary Grant, Irene Dunne) (Columbia, 1941) Noir Alley Repeat Performance (Louis Hayward, Joan Leslie) (Eagle-Lion, 1947) This is definitely a repeat performance, as I distinctly remember watching the memorable opening sequence of this film on Noir Alley in my parents' hou
  9. This thread gives me a welcome respite from the rest of General Discussions where a lot of poisonous language is being used. Let me just say you can't posit yourself as a champion of universal truths that are being suppressed by a pseudointellectual elite when your rhetoric consists entirely of sneering, scoffing, scornful derision, insulting, belittling and besmirching of everyone who has a different opinion than you. Thought that went on only in Off-Topic Chit-Chat, but here it is. I'm going to get away from there for a while. January 1 must be a Saturday. It's Saturday matinee in the
  10. Those books were quite popular during my childhood in the '70s, when it seemed like every big movie release, from Benji to The Shaggy DA to Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, had a hastily written book to attempt to capitalize on it. I read them all. Some of them I never even saw the movie. After seeing Star Wars, I literally read the novelization around three dozen times. I'd finish the last sentence, turn back to Page One and start again. It was credited to George Lucas, whom one of my friends guffawed once we were adults was a truly terrible writer based on this one book, but was actually ghost
  11. I either haven't seen it or forgotten too much about it to even guess at an anser. Confederate money was already pretty worthless soon after the war, according to that documentary known as Gone With the Wind! So I'm surprised chracters were using it in a movie set in the '30s.
  12. True, but he's also the guy who bombed Laos and Cambodia and sent troops into Cambodia.
  13. I don't know what to tell you other than you can turn on your TV two or three minutes after the posted starting time and miss the host introductions altogether. And then turn off your TV again as soon as the movie you wanted to watch is over.
