  1. *Boomerang* shows MGM cartoons at 8:00 pm Eastern/5:00 pm Pacific time. They show MGM cartoons from the 1930s to 1960s including the Happy Harmonies series of the 1930s. If you look at their online schedule, it gives the titles of the cartoons being shown that day. I'm not sure, but it seems they do not show cartoons from the Tom and Jerry series. The *Cartoon Network* shows original Warner Brothers Looney Tunes and MGM Tom and Jerry cartoons. The scheduled times can vary a bit, so it's best to check the online schedule each day.
  2. Thank you TCM! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes of Buck Rogers. As others have commented, the prints are beautiful. I've seen some of the Flash Gordon serial episodes, but I don't remember seeing Buck Rogers before. But now we need to wait a whole week to find out what happened to Buck, Buddy and Wilma at the end of *Tragedy on Saturn*. How could they possibly have survived?
  3. Maybe: Dead End (1937)--Sylvia Sidney, Joel McCrea, Humphrey Bogart and the "Dead End Kids."
  4. *Glory* (1956)--Margaret O'Brien *Glory* (1989)--Matthew Broderick
  5. Madame Anna Sebastian (Leopoldine Konstantin) and her son Alex Sebastian (Claude Rains) in *Notorious* (1946).
  6. *Heavens Above!* (1963) Scheduled for Thursday, January 6, 2011, 10:00 pm ET, 7:00 pm PT I just wanted to recommend this film. Peter Sellers is wonderful as a quiet vicar who practices what he preaches which leads to a great many problems for others. The film also has a great supporting British cast. It is a bit long, and for me at least, requires total concentration when watching it, but I find it to be a funny, and in its own way, a touching film.
  7. *Miracle on 34th Street* (1947) is scheduled to be shown on Thanksgiving Day at 2 pm (PST) on NBC. It is also scheduled to be shown on December 18 and 24 on WGN America; and on December 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, and 25 on AMC.
  8. In *Wings of Desire* (1987) the angels see the world in b&w. When one angel becomes a mortal, he sees the world in color. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I think about the first two-thirds of the film is in b&w and the last third is in color. There may be a few scenes in the beginning that the angels were not in, and those scenes are in color. *Spellbound* (1945) is a b&w film, but at the end there is a brief flash of the color red.
  9. *Happy Days'* Mr. Cunningham was the first character I saw Tom Bosley play. I like the first few years of *Murder She Wrote* when they had more stories set in Cabot Cove and Sheriff Tupper and Mrs. Fletcher solved crimes together. It was after I saw these shows that I saw him in *The World of Henry Orient*. It's fun seeing him married to Angela Lansbury whose character is nothing like Jessica Fletcher. I only saw *Love With the Proper Stranger* for the first time a few years ago. The scene where he has Natalie Wood over to dinner with his mom and sisters is very funny. Alas, he lost ou
  10. I know I saw it listed because I was also looking forward to seeing it again. Looking through the online schedules, it seems like it was near Sunday, November 21st because *Room For One More* is listed for that day and I remember thinking I hadn't seen that film for a long time either, but I may not be recalling accurately. I hope they reschedule *Family Honeymoon*, it's an amusing film.
  11. I like him as the tough bank robber who looking for a place to hide out, agrees to babysit the Kettle kids while Ma and Pa go to on a trip to New York City in *Ma and Pa Kettle Go To Town* (1950).

  13. *Lawyer J. Noble Daggett* (John Fiedler) in *True Grit* (1969). U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) was not fond of lawyers: "We had a good court going on here 'til them pettifogging lawyers moved in!"
  14.

  15. For another take on Eliza Doolittle, I recommend watching the 1938 film version of ?Pygmalion? with Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard. I prefer Wendy Hiller as Eliza Doolittle; I think she is more believable in the beginning of the film and the transformation has more impact. It may be because "My Fair Lady" is so stylized with the Cecil Beaton influence, but the 1938 film seems to have more heart.
  16. Our county fair opens next week. I?m entering oatmeal cookies and two photographs. I like to watch movies set at fairs and other fair-like events this time of the year. Here are some favorite titles: State Fair (1945)?I love the music score, the Technicolor and Jeanne Crain?s dresses. So Dear To My Heart (1946)?Sweet, gentle movie about a boy raising a lamb to show at the county fair. Beulah Bondi is wonderful as the wise grandmother. Ma and Pa Kettle At The Fair (1952)?This film has you rooting for Ma Kettle going up against her nemesis Bertie Hicks in the cooking contests. Po
