  1. It is TCM's policy to always show unedited and uncut versions of all movies, unless for some reason they can't get the uncut version (which I think is _very_ rare). Art for Art's Sake
  2. > {quote:title=hlywdkjk wrote:}{quote} > I do feel for audience members home during the daytime when nothing on TCM is appealing to them. The "alternatives" on other channels in the morning and afternoon are pretty...sad. (Just how many "People's Court" type programs are there? I am amazed at the proliferation of these oddities.) Isn't that what time-shifting was invented for? Art for art's sake
  3. I didn't really begin to realize how incredibly gifted and multifaceted Gloria Graham was until many years after having watched "It's a Wonderful Life", but at least it was thanks to that movie that she first made an impression on me. I'm still discovering many of her wonderful performances and look forward to all the ones I haven't seen yet. Art for art's sake
  4. I can think of many interesting possibilities. Comparing Wilder and Lubitsch, Ford and Hawks, Lang and N. Ray, etc. etc. How closely might we be following the films to be shown in June? Art for art's sake
  5. I hope I didn't come across as a "cheerleader" or an "apologist" myself. Just to be clear, I think that fans should speak their mind, just as long as it's done politely, because TCM programmers really should (and seem to) listen to constructive criticism. By the same token, I wouldn't support anyone who was simply bashing TCM and the programmers or making unrealistic demands (and I don't mean to suggest anyone in this thread has done that). Art for art's sake
  6. I agree with you. Part of the problem is that out of hundreds of channels available in the U.S. and Canada, there is still only ONE that is dedicated 100% to classic movies, and to showing them uncut and uncensored. And there is just no way one single channel can please all the people all the time. TCM seems to be trying some interesting things this year, partly because of the anniversary, and I'm sure they will continue to be open to suggestions. Viewers should remember that TCM doesn't have unlimited resources. Art for art's sake
  7. I might have been a bit over 12. I barely even remember. I don't even think that movie would be considered inappropriate for teenagers by today's standards (unless there's something I don't remember, lol).
  8. Chip, I had never heard of Passover Coke before, but it sounds like something I would like to try. I generally try to avoid HFCS whenever possible, but in this day and age, it's not an easy thing to do. P.S. tried to find out how to tell the caps apart and found this photo online: (The one with the yellow cap is Passover Coke, I believe). And now, back to *The Taking of TCM Trolley 123* Message was edited by: ArsGratiaArtis
  9. I think mine might have been "Le Magnifique" with Jean-Paul Belmondo. And yes, it was with "parental guidance" - my mom was crazy about Belmondo.
