  1. Not only is the schedule a mess, this whole site just took a giant leap backwards. Maybe I just gave up after 15 minutes, but I can't seem to find that awesome feature of being able to print next month's schedule all at once. I can't find a place to suggest a movie. I used to be able to search for a movie and not only get the synopsis and great info, I could see if it was scheduled in the near future. Try finding Where Were You When the Lights Went Out and it will take you three or four tries to actually get to the page. TCM - if you've contracted out the new web design, fire the contractor, get your money back, and please revert to the old familiar WORKING site you had the last time I was here. I am seriously considering dropping my cable provider and going with an antenna. The only thing holding me back is the fact I'd miss TCM. If I can't see what's playing, maybe I won't miss it at all.
  2. Thank you both for the history lesson. Interesting, comparing the service to the internet, and the ease of getting the music noticed. I guess there aren't many new ideas, just new technology to make things easy.
  3. Ok. I thought I'd seen it all, but that music service that Doris Day worked at in the beginning of the movie is unique. Sort of a live juke box. Did a machine/service like that actually exist in 1949? What was it called, and why did it exist? Wouldn't a real juke box be far more cost effective? It's quite cool, but I just don't see it as possible on a large scale. Rob
  4. Well, believe it or not, I saw this movie last night. I mentioned it to my brother-in-law, who just happens to be a Scout Master. He had the movie on VHS. Every scene was so familiar to me, and it certainly was a pleasant 90 minutes watching it. I'm 99% sure this is the movie I was thinking of, but I think there's still a short film out there that has the same theme, only much funnier (at least to a 10 year old in 1964). Thanks you again for your help. I love this message board.
  5. This one cracks me up every time. Laurel and Hardy in Way Out West. Stan and Ollie are trying to retrieve the deed to a mine that was stolen by con artists Sharon Lynn and James Finlayson. Stan and Sharon get locked in the bedroom where he hides the deed in his shirt. She tickles him unmercifully until he gives it up. His laugh is so infectious, and goes on long after the tickling ends. Now I need to see that movie again. Right now!
  6. Gasp! I have a great feeling about this. I googled some pictures of the movie and everything looked so right to me. It surprised me that it was a feature film, because I know we saw it at the same showing as PT109. Two movies, four cartoons and an Laurel and Hardy short for 15 cents. I found a place on the web that has a vhs copy available. I just have to order it. I know it will be a slight disappointment, because I'm sure the movie hasn't aged well, but it will be great viewing it, and I'm sure a flood of memories will ensue. I thank you musicalnovelty, for your quick response. I think you've solved a mystery that's been eating at me for over 40 years. I'm brand new to TCM (we just started getting it on cable a few months ago), but I had heard so many good comments about it, I let out a whoop when I found it it was coming my way. This message board is just the icing on the cake. I truly hope I can help someone as you've helped me. Thanks again.
  7. I recall seeing a movie in the early 60s (but probably made in the 40s or early 50s) that had a storyline similar to the Cary Grant film in my subject line. I've seen the Grant film recently, and that ain't it. There was a scout troupe and one of the scouts was a very gravelly voiced boy, age 10 or less. A friend thinks it may have been "Joy Scouts" starring the Little Rascals, but I don't recall those films have too many grownups in them. This film has been on my radar for decades. I remember the entire audience (over 500 kids) howling in the aisles all through the short movie. I appreciate any help you may provide.
