  1. Hello All, Sunday evening, TCM ran 5 silent shorts of "the boys"; some which I hadn't seen since I was a kid in Newark, New Jersey, in the early 1950's. The one entitled "Big Business", where Stan and Ollie try their hands at selling Christmas tress in L.A. was unique in one way. During the ensuing fracas with Jimmy Finlayson, Stan calls to Ollie, but [if you can read lips!] you'll notice that Stan's lips are saying "BABE". This was a nickname which followed Ollie his whole life. I had never seen [or heard] Ollie's "other name" used in any of their movies before! Does anyo
  2. Has anyone seen the adapted animation? It was no where to be found in Southern California, that I was able to discover. If you have seen it, in what way did it impress you? Will it be available on DVD soon? Joaquin
  3. Hello All, I'm watching the above movie as I type this; it so reminds me of a similar film, "I'll Be Seeing You", with Ginger Rogers and Joseph Cotton. I've just checked and the latter film will be on TCM, December 18th and then again on the 25th. If you haven't see either in a while, they are, each in their own way, worth their weight in anything you care to call "precious". Why are there so few films of this genre made in our own time? Wishing you and all those you hold dear a most thankful and joyous Thanksgiving holiday! Joaquin
  4. This is a very good thread! This was my experience with DISH today... I went right through "customer service", when "Cris" told me that there was nothing that he could do to help me. Spoke with the Philippine "accounts director" to voice displeasure with the "ongoing negotiations" with Turner. After 10 minutes on the phone, I believe this is going to take a lot longer to reach an agreement than anyone ever thought. I spoke with a neighbor who told me that she went to "customer service" and got a $40 credit on her bill, to "compensate" her for the inconvenience and the absence of the qu
  5. Yes, there are many great dramatic, foreigh films. How about "foreign films" made in Europe [and elsewhere] for American audiences? Like "The Third Man" with Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton and Trevor Howard? Anyway, for comedy, Audrey Tautou's "Amelie" does it for me...great flick! Cheers!
  6. Staring 8:00 P.M. Eastern time, TCM is going to run several films including The Jazz Singer [Al Jolson/Danny Thomas versions] "Hester Street", "Avalon" and "Street Scene". A more recent and most enjoyable film that should have been added---but was omitted---is the Amy Irving classic "Crossing Delancy". If you haven't seen it and are from Manhattan or the metropolitan area, it's not to be missed! Even of you're not, see it, see it; go already! The 1950's were a great epoch to be a kid...
  7. I've submitted a question about the origional "The Thing from Another World" [1951] to several other lists and have not received a definitive answer that I am comfortable with. Perhaps you can assist me? For those of you who have this movie on DVD ot tape and can view these two parts I am talking about... About 6 minutes into the movie, the B&W "contrast" changes dramatically when Captain Hendry reports to General Fogherty's office. Fogherty tells Henry he's going to the North Pole because of a wire sent by Dr. Carrington, about an unusual airplane that has just crashed in the vicini
  8. Someone mentioned John "Zacherle". Is he still around? Whem ny family lived in Newark, Zacherle used to be on Channel 13 on Saturday nights. Always made me laugh, looking down on the floor and conversing with his wife[?], always saying "Yes, my dear..." Here in the San Diego/L.A. area, there used to be a show that was on very early in the morning, maybe one or two A.M. On L.A.'s Channel 5, the show was called "Movies Until Dawn" Probably back in the early 1980's. Anyway, they used to show many of the old 50's sci-fi movies like TMMonsters. I recall seeing "Kronos" too. I had a VHS tape
  9. If you're speaking of the latest effort of 2014, to canonize Godzilla, I'm sorry but I must disagree...and strongly. There was faaaar too much of David Strathairn and farrrr too little of the giant lizard. BTW, I grew up in Newark until 1972 and saw all of the 1950's sci-fi movies at the West End Theatre on 16th Avenue and 18th Street. Someday we'll talk about them, if you have the time. Joaquin
  10. Why didn't TCM show that marvelous interview with Jimmy Garner, from 2001, this past week? I would have gladly traded one of his movies and substituted it for that wonderful interview! Whatdya hear, whatdya say, Mr. Osborne?! Joaquin in San Diego
  11. Hello All, Just a note to remind you that this one-of-a-kind movie is going to be shown, once again on August 28th at 2:30 P.M. Eastern. Just thought you'd like to know... Thank you TCM! Alain
  12. My wife and I have just seen "Public Enemy" with Johnny Depp. In it was a great shoot out at the hotel in Wisconsin. I was trying to recall some of my favorite movies with some really great shoot-'em-ups"! Here are my favorites, so far, as they come into my mind... Probably the best shoot-out that I have ever seen and which is my favorite is the one in "Open Range", with Kevin Cosner and Robert Duvall and Annette Bening. It lasts for about 6 minutes and it really is a great scene. The next one that comes to mind is the scene from the Dirty Harry series entitled, "Magnum Force".
  13. Chiller Theater, of course! I was a devote' of that show I can tell ya. I remember seeing "I Married A Monster From Outer Space", "Attack of the 50' Woman" and many others on that show. As a matter of fact, I believe that they used clips from both movies on the Chiller Theater intro. Thanks for bring that show back to my mind again! Alain
  14. Does anyone remember this classic from 1953? I was born in Newark, New Jersey in the late 1940's. I used to go to the movies [The West End Theatre] to see movies like this. The last time I saw it on tv was back in the early 1960's. Channel 11, WPIX in Manhattan used to have a horror/sci-fi program that was on around 5 or 6 P.M. on every Saturday The only thing I can recall about the movie was towards the end. They are trying to kill the "thing" and a metal ladder gets magnetically stuck to a chamber wall where they were working. I remember the end, but I won't spoil it for you by p
  15. How about Jean Hagen and Patricia Neal? Don't know how to post the photos, sorry! Alain
