  1. Mister Cory – 1957 – Tony Curtis & Martha Hyer – Universal Studios / Universal International Pictures (UI) (us) Do copyright laws for movies last forever? Is that why some movies still can’t be shown?
  2. Posted 06 April 2015 - 08:26 PM in answer to: "If black and white movies were not being met with any enthusiasm, why did they continue to make them? What was the last year of some black and white films?" They still make B&W movies today – (‘Nebraska’ 2014) though they are few and far between. Some movies just do not translate well in colour. I could name a dozed that have been colorized that just don’t have the same impact. But then, that’s whole different topic. I can’t imagine seeing “Seconds” in colour and I don’t think that was the problem with it. The story may have been just too much for most people.

  4. Maybe I misspoke but I read somewhere that the critics took issue with many aspects of the film at the time (one of which could have been the casting of Rock Hudson?) and it only attracted a cult following many years later. I assumed the critics didn’t like it. Having just seen it I must say if I had seen it in 1966 I probably would have hated it too. Today, as disturbing as I found it to be, I think it is a masterpiece of film making most especially with the casting of Hudson in the role.
  5. SECONDS – 1966 - John Frankenheimer Starring Rock Hudson in his most dramatic role ever. The premise of the story alone is enough to be disturbing to anybody, and Hudson gave a shatteringly real and inspired performance. I don’t know if this film was widely released. The critics (and the public I think) hated it. I had never even heard of it before and came across it by accident at the library. Thinking about Hudson’s life and what we know now it is even more disturbing. What must he have been thinking when he was making the film? I can only imagine how the story must have been disturbing to him.
  6. If anyone knows about a DVD release of this movie I would surely love to hear about it. Thanks to anyone with info. Stars:Tony Curtis, Martha Hyer, Charles Bickford
  7. Most disliked movies for me: ‘Ben Hur’ - Nice to know I was not alone on this one, what a relief. Pretty much the only thing anybody talks about in this move is the great chariot race…and I didn’t even like that. ‘Taxi Driver’ and most everything by Martin Scorsese. Anything with Jim Carrey except ‘Simon Birch’ where he was in it for all of 5 minutes.
  8. Agree with you 100%!! Love that movie. BTW - can't say I've seen it on TCM. Has it been on?
  9. Thanks. I'm only wathing one thread. There has been some activity but still no email. Hope the Tech guys are aware. At least I know it's not just me thanks to you.
  10. I have done what I am supposed to do in order to watch a particular thread in Hot Topics, I have selected all the right boxes to 'watch this thread' TWICE but still I am not getting any messages to my email.....what could be the problem?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  11. Surely you were not referring to Ted Turner personally??? Right?? In any case one could ask the same question about many, many films that TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES shows over & over again. I doubt very much if it has anything to do with the station being paid to show them. That's just ridiculous.
  12. Thanks for your response. Oh yes I agree, not seeing the face was the only choice for the proper effect. But after all these years I've always wondered who they used. I thought it may have been the actor who played the blond intern, but I guess I'll never know.
  13. Does anyone know who played Sebastian in 'Suddenly Last Summer'? Even though his face was never shown there was a shot of him running up the hill when Catherine was telling what happened to him at the end. It was a non-speaking part so probably not listed in the cast but it has bugged me all these years to know who the man was......thanks.
