  2. I've admired Isabelle Huppert for a very long time, I never really thought about that resemblance before, but I do believe you're right (aside from Isabelle not being a blonde, of course). However from what I know of her filmography, she has done more drama than comedy.

He and Harry Carey, Jr. with a lot of help from Ward Bond carry the movie. It is a small Ford western but it is first rate. > > I always try to help keep all of you happy. A gentleman's good intentions are always appreciated, I'm sure. There are a lot of great things to be said about "Wagon Master", even if it is a "small" Ford western, because a "small" Ford is still larger than the biggest of some other directors' efforts. I think

About two years ago I took my children to see "To Kill A Mockingbird." > I would hope they were able to show 70mm prints for all or most of those movies. They look absolutely amazing in 70mm. Especially "Lawrence".
  5. > {quote:title=CharlieT wrote:}{quote} > I'm surprised no one's mentioned this one yet: > > Henry Fonda in *The Lady Eve* and in *Once Upon A Time In The West*. That's a good one, Charlie. Fonda was really an amazing villain in that Leone movie. I believe people at the time thought he'd been cast against type. No matter, he did an amazing job.

  7. That is one GORGEOUS theater, you are very lucky to live near it.
  8. Well, Frank, then maybe we do agree on something. Of course, I would like to think that you'd also not be the kind to jump to any conclusions and consider any person "guilty" if you've never even heard both sides of the story. I'm sure you wouldn't think it's a black-and-white thing, either.
  9. Well, patful, I think it's a bit more complicated than that, but I totally respect what you are saying. > {quote:title=lzcutter wrote:}{quote} > The incident that I spoke about in that earlier thread is back in the message archives for anyone that wants to dig it out. Be advised, that you'll likely be surprised when you discover who the poster was that got dragged into the middle of town. It's not who you think and for the record, he still posts here on a regular basis. I'd actually like to learn more about that particular incident, although without a bit more detail, I probab
  10. Lynn, Sorry, but the only post from TCMWebAdmin in that regard that I could find in the old threads was the one where he/she said, in response to a post by Dewey1960, "The boards are not the proper venue for expressing your grievances". I believe TCMWebAdmin also requested at that time (April 2007) that people express their concerns via PMs.
  11. > {quote:title=FrankGrimes wrote:}{quote} > I respect your decision to abstain from voting at this time. Thank you for taking part. And I would very much hope that you paid real tribute to the democratic traditions of this great country of ours, where even criminal suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty, and where even the people convicted of something have a chance to appeal and overturn a conviction if it is brought to the attention of the authorities that they have been convicted based on false testimony or if people testifying against them lied to the authorities,

  13. I don't know the answer to that. Maybe I just don't have an answer yet. I think it was you (and please, correct me if I'm wrong) that once said in some movie-related discussion that you didn't believe in seeing things in black-and-white terms, that you frequently saw shades of gray. Well, to me the question that you pose is not something that is black-and-white, I see many shades that I don't believe you have even considered. And I think you make a mockery of real democracy when you start something with even the vaguest pretense that an online forum is run as a democracy. Because as Ly
  14. Well, Frank, frankly (no pun intended), I suppose the best way to answer the question would be to say "I don't know if I know all the facts". Like I said, I don't know if any individual(s) have received a ban of any duration or if they have been unbanned after a specific amount of time. And I don't honestly think TCM would tell me, if I asked. Let's take a look at the example I gave earlier, MrHoneywell. Some people assume he was banned, and have said as much in the forums. While I don't presume to know something that TCM has not, to the best of my knowledge, publicly announced, I coul

  19. I remember when this forum old-timer jokingly mentioned that there were only FOUR real people in the forums. Well, if nothing else, at least the appearances on TCM of the Fan Programmers should put that silly notion to rest, for good. Dougie, I really enjoyed all of the ones that the Fan Programmers introduced last night. They were good movies. Hope you enjoyed some of them, too.

No, Lynn, it was not me who described the content of these PMs that some people have been sending out asking uninvolved parties to ignore certain posters. To point out that someone has described the content of PMs received is not, I believe, inflammatory in any way. Do you believe it is inflammatory? Look, the bottom line is pretty simple, I think: there's some pretty str
  25. movieman, It was not a perceived campaign. Someone posted to describe the PMs that some have been sending out. And I do hope TCMWebAdmin will look into that, as well. Using the PM system to conduct smear campaigns should not be allowed, imho.
