  1. > {quote:title=LonesomePolecat wrote:}{quote} > One movie I loved that no one else remembers is RESCUE DAWN with Christian Bale and Steve Zahn. It's a POW film about Vietnam------man, those WWII POWs had it EASY compared to them! I think that's certainly a great war movie, and I really admire Werner Herzog as a director all the more because of it. I don't think it did very well in the U.S., and it's a shame because I think it really deserved to find a wider audience. And of course it does show Christian Bale's remarkable range as an actor.
  2. I can't imagine what a thrill it must be to watch a special anniversary screening of *Gone with the Wind*. Perhaps with a bit of luck I can be there for the 75th anniversary.
  3. > {quote:title=drednm wrote:}{quote} > I don't think Ruggles has been released on DVD in this country... I bought a lousy quality DVD out of Hong Kong or Singapore a few years ago.... amazon doesn't have it, but movies unlimited seems to have it, if you click on the little "price tag" on the schedule.

  5. > {quote:title=TikiSoo wrote:}{quote} > I absolutely LOVE the attention to detail of sets in Capra's films. The first time I ever saw It's A Wonderful Life on the big screen I was AMAZED at all the detail you miss on TV. The pin up girl picture on a post in the bank that WE see, but hidden from customers. The framed South American butterflies in the Bailey parent home, that turn up in George's home later. > When George kicks his model bridge, you see publicity 8x10s of the actors playing his relatives taped to his work area wall. > I'm not sure I'd ever have known about those details if you hadn't mentioned them Tiki. While I'd love the chance to watch it on the big screen, I'm not sure it will ever happen. But I'll definitely keep an eye out for those when I watch it on video, just in case. > I just bought Meet John Doe on DVD and I'm sure once I watch it leisurely I'll find treasures like that in the newsroom. I believe this is the one that is available on many PD versions, I hope the one you got is a reasonably good print with good image/sound.
  6. Thanks for the offer, dred! Let me check my stash of recorded movies just to make sure that I don't have this one already. There is a small chance I may have recorded it the last time it was shown on TCM, but I can't be sure until I check.
  7. This movie sounds like a wonderful way to kick off the "Funny Ladies" week. And I see that it's a Paramount movie, hopefully another sign that TCM continues to work on getting movies from the Universal/Paramount library added to the schedule.
  8. Hi Shunderson I'm a pretty big fan of the original *3:10 to Yuma* and I hope to watch it again soon. Both of the stars were fantastic. I've not seen *Cowboy* yet, but looking at the cast list, it seems like a Western I would definitely want to see. I'm adding it to my Netflix queue.
  9. That's too bad, if they don't release it even through Warner Archives. I guess I'll be sure and record it off TCM when they show it again.
  10. Chris, I recently started a thread on miscegenation in movies, in the General Discussion section. Just thought I'd mention it, if you want to comment a bit more on that element as it is shown in this movie. Oh, and just thinking about it in the context of Westerns reminded me of the one where Robert Taylor played a Native-American.
  11. Oh, those are good ones Jake. I also just remembered *Show Boat* and *The Letter*.

Now that's something that the public must not be exposed to. Yes, Heaven forbid!
  13. I'd never thought of that. Interesting point, Fred. I also found this blog entry that includes more details about exactly what has been cut in the censored version: http://blog.gnumatt.org/archives/2007/7/8/the_propatriarchy_censorship_of_the/
  14. Hi Stephen. It's been a long while since I've watched the uncensored *Baby Face*, but I have a vague memory of the Nietzsche part being presented in the movie to sort of accompany a point about female empowerment, in order to dominate men. Since you've just seen you'll probably remember it much better. Maybe that is what scared the censors? I don't think his being German would have had much to do with it, but I could be wrong.
  15. That's a neat find, Joe! I'm curious about the "compression noise". How can you tell you're seeing something with compression noise? What does it look like?
