  1. Anyone catch Mighty Joe Young the other day? One of my all-time faves. Everytime I watch it I am amazed by the cameo appearances of virtual unknowns (unknown, that is, at that time) who later went to much success in Hollywood at a later date. One such actor is Dwayne Hickman (played Dobie Gillis) who is supposedly one of the kids hounding Terry Moore for an autograph as she walks down the street. You only catch a glimpse of his face (he's the tall kid), but I'm pretty sure that's him. I don't believe he is listed among the movie credits, but I may be wrong. In any event, I always enjoy that
  2. Great observations on your part. I'm sure the next time we see Mighty Joe Young, we'll pick out other famous people who had minor roles.
  3. Yes, Irene Ryan looked almost the same as when she played Granny in the 1960's. Really surprised me when I realized who it was.
  4. Although it was aired about (3) weeks ago, it was a pleasant surprise to see Mighty Joe Young once again on TCM. Each time I see it, I discover another obscure actor/actress that I didn't realize had a minor role. Irene Ryan (Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies) had a bit part as a night-club patron when the Mr Joseph Young show debuted in Hollywood. Another actor (his name eludes me) who played, among other things, Homer Bedloe on Petticoat Junction in the late 60's, also had a brief appearance at the bar. Dwayne Hickman who starred as the "incurable Romantic" Dobie Gillis is reportedly in th
  5. One of my all-time favorite Horror Pictures is "The Bride of Frankenstein" with Boris Karloff, Colin Clive and Elsa Lanchester. Is it scheduled to be aired on TCM anytime soon? I looked but haven't seen it. I'm curious. Does anyone else find this picture fascinating? I think Boris Karloff was a very underrated actor. Bela Lugosi, Glenn Strange, et al played "The Monster" in other movies, but their performances pale in comparison to William Pratt's (aka: Boris Karloff) startling portrayal of the fiendish creation of Dr. Frankenstein's diabolical experiments. In my opinion, Karloff was born to
  6. I noticed on Saturday morning that "Mighty Joe Young" would be airing on TCM Sunday night at 10PM. What a welcome surprise on this 4th of July weekend. I hadn't seen it in years, but was anxious to re-connect with one of my favorite movies of all time. My favorite part is when Joe is transported via Moving Van (Western Moving Company) with Terry Moore and Ben Johnson trying desperately to secure his safe return to Africa, while Robert Armstrong (Max O'Hara) manages to foil the hapless police at every turn with his quick thinking and mad-cap antics. Joe is vindicated when he saves an imperiled
  7. I probably missed it earlier this year, but does anyone know when **Mighty Joe Young** starring Terry Moore will be on again? I haven't seen it in years, but it is one of my all time favorites. . Yes, I did see in the TCM Store that I can purchase the DVD. I'm not really into the DVD's/Blue Rays, etc. Would much prefer to see it when TCM airs it.
  8. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be sure to look out for it.
  9. I posted a thread the other day about the Bowery Boys and was pleasantly surprised to see that so many people had fond memories about their movies. Several respondents pointed out that they were also known as The Dead End Kids, as well. One of my all-time favorites was "Angels with Dirty Faces" with Jimmy Cagney (Rocky Sullivan), Humphrey Bogart (played a corrupt lawyer), Pat O'Brien (The Father) and of course, The Dead End Kids. I believe it was made in 1938. Truly a classic.
  10. Old TV set? I have a new Sony 42" flat screen with HD capabilities. Besides, the Bowery Boys movies were made in the 1940's and technology had really progressed since the early days of talkies. All the Bowery Boys movies I had seen previously on OTHER stations, in years past, were just fine. Picture quality was okay. ????
  11. Was just wondering if TCM has ever done a retropspective on the old Bowery Boys movies? If so, great! If not, I would like to suggest that they give it consideration sometime soon.
  12. I'm relatively new to TCM, but just wanted to say that the Football Movie Classics shown on Friday Jan. 30th were an absolute stroke of genius on TCM's part. I work at home and, for the most part, pride myself on keeping the TV off during regular business hours, as I know how counter-productive I can be with distractions (the one exception, of course, being when the Chicago Cubs have an afternoon game on WGN-TV). Must say I couldn't turn the movies off when I started watching them beginning early Friday morning. Loved "The Huddle"; the one with Pat O'Brien playing Frank Cavanaugh was inspiring
