  1. I believe that Film Noir movies have becom my favorite classic film category. TCM shows a lot of them, which leads me to this question: Why does TCM's "Now Playing" guide refuse to use a symbol to signify a Film Noir movie? For Instance: If they're showing ANY other movie in the back it has symbols to easily know what type of movie each one is. "A" - Adventure "C" - Comedy CR- Crime "D" - Documentary "M" - Musical SM - Suspense/Mystery And so on. I've written and rewritten to the Now Playing Guide Dept. to please ad a "FN" to those Film Noir movies. Presently unless you re
  2. Were we bot told way back in July that Robert Osborne was taking a extended period of time off but that he would be back by the end of Aug. Well now we're into Sept. and never is there any word whtsoever when he will be back. It was strange how aqll this even begin. No announcement, no warning just BOOM - one night there was Robert Wagner hosting and saying Robert is yaking some time off. But no one is talking of when he is ever coming back. I have finally reached the decision that he may not be coming back and it's all very, very suspicious. This will probably be blocked because I
  3. I plead stupidity who in the living heck IS Tippi Hedren???
  4. I seldom have a disagreement with anything concerning "TCM" . However I have often wondered why the movie "Fountainhead" starring Gary Cooper and Patrica Neal has never been shown as a Essential. Then I see this coming Saturday The Essential movie is "Cat People" a B movie and while I have a certain place in my heart for "B" movies. To say this movie is one of the Essentials and obviously "the great movie "Fountainhead" is not. Well I'll keep it nice, but someone had better do some rethinking on their selection process for Essential movies! Maurice Covert
  5. I don't know about you but this bunch of Guest Programmers appearing in recent days (TCM Employees) are picking crap. Last night this gal picked a film called "The Projectionist". It was not only a hard movie to follow it was also extremely dumb. Now tonight they have some foreign Movie on and excuse me but isn't enjoying a movie being able to watch the movie with sight and sound you understand? If I have to read the words at the bottom of the movie of each and every word spoken not only annoying but difficult to follow the movie at all. Might as well read a good book with pictures. I vot
  6. I love and I do mean I love "TCM". However, and having said that I wished they would include other information on both (or in my case-either) their website where they list and provide description for each movie or at least in "Now Playing Guide" that I subscribe too. First the movie I'm referring to on this occasion is "GIANT" with the following cast: Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean and Rock Hudson Directed by: George Stevens The additional info I refer too, are those movies shown on TCM which are 3 hrs. or longer (sometimes even shorter) often include "Overture", "Intermission" and "
  7. *The name of the movie is, "We're No Angels" made in 1955* *It is one of the very best Classic's of all time and all the stars who play in it are the very ones TCM loves to show - It is a Christmas comedy picture starring **Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov, Aldo Ray, Joan Bennett, Basil Rathbone, and Leo G. Carroll*. It was directed by Michael Curtiz, who had directed Bogart in Casablanca, when both were under contract to Warner Brothers. It is one of the rare comedies that Bogart made. Paramount filmed the production at its Hollywood studios in VistaVision and Technicolor.* 3 convicts escape
  8. I have never seen this movie ever shown on any T.V. station and have been looking for it for over forty years. I find this absolutely amazing if for no other reason than it's tremendous Historical value. It was Howard Hughes masterpiece. His first movie that he spent 4 million of his own money on. If for no other reason it needs to be shown because of it's historical importance and isn't this what TCM is all about?
  9. There was a time "TCM" would schedule this movie almost every month so I know it's in their film vault. However they seem to have just forgotten about it and no longer even schedule,. It's one Of Bogie's very best and Bette Davis is super as usual. Please bring it back. It's one of our favorites. TCM Fan Club Chapter Clearwater Florida Maurice Covert Chairman
  10. As much as I truly love TCM, I will never understand why it is that they just refuse to show one of the truly great comedy movies of all time. It's not only hilarious, it also includes some of the great stars of all time. Try this on for size: John Barrymore, John Howard, Virginia Bruce, Charles Ruggles Margaret Hamilton and many more. The only thing and I really do mean the ONLY thing wrong with this witty hilarious movie is it's title. "The Invisible Woman". The title would implicate it's one of those cheap old horror movies. When it's anything but. I guess they came up with this title beca
  11. Now I'm really beginning to get ticked off. All I hear is that this extremely funny classical movie from 1979 that starred many of the great comics of that era "Scavenger Hunt" that starred Roddy McDowall, Richard Benjamin, Cloris Leachman, Scatman Crothers, Tony Randall James Coco with many other cameo appearances like Californians present Governor and so many others. Is a movie that magically disappeared. It's all bull crap for you can find it everywhere on the Net but yet none of the networks show it. It was made by Fox studios which in the past has loan many films to TCM yet you'll never
  12. Scavenger Hunt Simply put this 1979 classic was one of the greats as a comic - fast-pace adventure and simply a hilarious Movie - either TCM and your staff are unable to get the rights to show it - or you're just missing the boat entirely! Ever heard of "Roddy McDowall, Richard Benjamin, Cloris Leachman, Scatman Crothers, Tony Randall James Coco? No none of the above made just a cameo appearance THEY ALL stared in this movie. If you somehow never saw this movie then I have no idea where you've been. To the majority who have but maybe like myself haven't seen it in many years and would love

  15. Where you wrote: "It continues to impress me that movies once had comparatively little technology, yet they were so much better than today's offering.". You're saying exactly what I say to anyone when any kind of topic comes up that includes movies. Hummm, now that I think about it, I often mention this even when the subject matter has nothing to do with movies. But when you say: "had comparatively little technology, yet they were so much better than today's offering.".- When you think about it why would anyone - let me rephrase that, HOW could anyone judge a film based upon technolog
