  1. That's wonderful to hear about the restoration of the sound feature "Our Gang" shorts. I'm wondering about the silent ones. Several years ago a company called Laughsmith (or something like that) was going to restore all the silent Our Gang shorts and put them on DVD but something fell short and it never happened. Does anyone know if these shorts have ever been restored? Sometimes they are shown on TCM and most of them are in pretty bad condition.
  2. Actually, I believe "Lilac Time" was yanked twice from the schedule. I got so frustrated after the second yanking that I found a VHS copy on ebay and bought it.
  3. While going thru the August TCM schedule I noticed that they took "Steamship Round The Bend" (1935) off on Anne Shirley's day. I was looking forward to it as it was the last film Will Rogers made before his untimely death. It is also a rare Fox film. I knew it was too good to be true. Also, I noticed that they're showing "Mary Burns Fugitive" (1935) as a TCM premiere on Sylvia Sidney's day. That's not true. They aired it several months ago in the afternoon as I taped it.
  4. My favorite show of all time was "Bewitched" and my favorite characters in the series were Aunt Clara, Endora and the first Gladys Kravitz. I recently bought the boxed set of all 254 episodes. I never watched "Frasier" when it was in prime time but I began watching it on COZI-TV. I love the humor and the writing is fabulous. I think it's a lot funnier than the show it branched off from (Cheers).
  5. Poor James Dean died before "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Giant" were even released. "Giant" wasn't released until a year after his death.
  6. Lon Chaney Sr. made his only talkie, "The Unholy Three" which not only proved that he had a good speaking voice but he also did multiple voices in the film. Sadly he died a short time later. Lilyan Tashman was filming "Frankie and Johnny" in 1934 when she went to the hospital and died of cancer. This film wasn't released till 1936. Poor Ross Alexander just completed "Ready, Willing and Able" with Ruby Keeler when he committed suicide. At first Jack Warner wanted to refilm his scenes but it was deemed too expensive. They released the film and Ross was delegated to fifth in the film credits ev
  7. I remember that "Wild Girl" (1932) with Charles Farrell was on the TCM schedule many years ago. Then suddenly it was taken off with no explanation and I never saw it listed again. Add "Her Wedding Night" (1930) and "Kick In" (1931) both with Clara Bow to this list.
  8. I visited his grave several years ago. I remember reading that the dog on the tombstone represents the hunting dogs that he was involved in training. Many people think it represents "Pete" the dog from "Our Gang".
  9. That's Jackie Joseph. She was the former wife of Ken Berry. Besides "The Little Shop Of Horrors" I remember her from "The Doris Day Show".
  10. Does anyone know why the two William Haines MGM talkies ("A Tailor Made Man" and "New Adventures Of Get Rich Quick Wallingford" are never shown on TCM? Are they entangled in some legal disputes?
  11. Also " Escapade" (1935) with William Powell and Luise Rainer in her first American film. This MGM film is in legal limbo too.
  12. Jean Harlow. I remember watching a "Tonight Show" episode many years ago when Jimmy Stewart was a guest. He was telling Johnny Carson that of all the actresses he kissed in the movies the ultimate kiss was with Jean Harlow.
  13. Isn't that photo on the left the last photo ever taken of Sean? It's very haunting. Little did he know what lay ahead for him on this journey.
  14. There's Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh; Douglas Fairbanks Jr., son of Douglas Fairbanks Sr.; Freddie Prinze Jr., son of Freddie Prinze, Mary Frances Crosby (Who shot JR) daughter of Bing Crosby and Phillips Holmes, son of Taylor Holmes
  15. My personal favorite is "Dinner At Eight". I can watch it over and over again. I especially love Marie Dressler and Jean Harlow in their various scenes. They're still funny after repeated watchings and their lines aren't dated at all.
