  1. You probably can get away with it in Niagara because of the films location not because of the beautiful flesh tones. Other than that, I am against colorization because you are destroying the vision of the people responsible for creating the film in the first place.
  2. Another silent Paramount that was quite famous was UNDERWORLD . It also was out a few years ago in a box set with other films that made it more expensive to buy.
  3. As you may have noticed ,like my friend who replied to my last two posts, I like the word classic in Turner Classic Movies. The movies I have listed range from the silent era through the 40's. I hope TCM will never abandon our film heritage. Super hero films of today are best left to the serials of Saturday morning. That's fine. Thanks for listening (reading).
  4. I should have mentioned BEGGARS OF LIFE from 1928. A classic silent with Louise Brooks, Richard Arlen and Wallace Beery. Just to let anyone interested, it has been released on DVD a few years ago. By the way, AMONG THE LIVING is being released on Blu-Ray this month from Kino-Lorber.
  6. No way ! For a musical or a western I would accept color. For a domestic drama about soldiers returning from the war ,it is totally unnecessary. THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES IS TOTAL PERFECTION and one of the 10 greatest films ever made. Now if SHANE would have been made in black and white, I would say they made a horrible mistake. I think the powers that be in American cinema knew and know today what they are doing.
  7. ON GOLDEN POND with Henry Fonda. THE SHOOTIST with John Wayne. His greatest performance.
  8. And let me also add Francis Lederer and Joan Bennett in PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS about a delightful custom in colonial times.
  9. Yes, I know. I have them both, Not everybody can afford to be a collector and it would be nice for them to see these rare titles on TCM. While I am here posting, let me mention another marvelous little Paramount film that no one has mentioned yet. If you love dog stories, then THE BISCUIT EATER is for you.
  10. AMONG THE LIVING , I saw about 20 years ago at a theater that loved to show old films. SALTY O'ROURKE might have problems with the estate of Damon Runyon. A MEDAL FOR BENNY might have problems with the estate of John Steinbeck.
  11. And 2 Paramount silent classics: BEGGARS OF LIFE UNDERWORLD
  12. There are 3 films from Paramount that I would like to see on TCM : AMONG THE LIVING A MEDAL FOR BENNY SALTY O'ROURKE
  13. That's the problem with the alternate ending. It's funny.
  14. Would love to see her in an early very noticeable role she had in a very good second feature titled AMONG THE LIVING from Paramount in 1941.
