  1. 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.
  2. ON GOLDEN POND with Henry Fonda. THE SHOOTIST with John Wayne. His greatest performance.
  3. And let me also add Francis Lederer and Joan Bennett in PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS about a delightful custom in colonial times.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. And 2 Paramount silent classics: BEGGARS OF LIFE UNDERWORLD
  7. There are 3 films from Paramount that I would like to see on TCM : AMONG THE LIVING A MEDAL FOR BENNY SALTY O'ROURKE
  8. That's the problem with the alternate ending. It's funny.
  9. 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.
  10. It's not just her early films at Fox such as WILD GIRL (1932). There is Paramount's THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS (1934) and Columbia's SHE COULDN'T TAKE IT (1935).
  12. Saw it this morning on On Demand. Not as bad as the dealer print I had for years..
  13. I LOVE TROUBLE and WHISTLE AT EATON FALLS. I always wanted to see these films in better than the poor quality that dealers have had for years. It looks like I blew the opportunity. I hope they will show these films again in the next few months.
  14. The best of the 4 that I listed is A MEDAL FOR BENNY. A standout film with a great performance by J.Carrol Naish . Arturo de Cordova and Dorothy Lamour are also in the cast. John Steinbeck was involved in the production and that may be what is holding up its viewing these days. It was shown on cable years ago.
  16. I still haven't found a workable link to the monthly March schedule. Could someone kindly post it that doesn't flash in and out. Thanks.
  17. Shirley Temple was the last stamp issued in the LEGENDS OF HOLLYWOOD series. It took the place of the Elizabeth Taylor stamp which was announced many months earlier, but was dropped because someone involved in Elizabeth Taylor estate wasn't happy. That probably cost the USPS a lot of money and from that point to this very day there has never been another LEGENDS OF HOLLYWOOD. A shame because BURT LANCASTER, KIRK DOUGLAS, RITA HAYWORTH and many others deserve one.
  18. More octogenarians : Katharine Ross 80 Julie Christie 80 James Caan 80 Samantha Eggar 81 Terence Stamp 82 Tom Courtenay 83 Alan Alda 84 Donald Sutherland 85 Alan Arkin 86 Carol Burnett 87 Joel Grey 88
  19. A veteran performer of drama and comedy for more than 50 years....George Segal.
