  1. Jake, you're posting a lot of great photos. Often I know who's in them, and what film (if it's from a film,) but often I don't. I suspect it's the same with other folks. They'd be a lot more interesting if you would post that info. Same goes for your other photo threads. Thanks.
  2. TikiSoo, while I agree that some Disney animation should be Essentials (Bambi, Fantasia, and Dumbo come to mind,) animation essentials can hardly be limited to Disney. There are many other great animated films and shorts.
  3. Wayne, thanks for compiling all that interesting info. Like HIH, I am a Fleischer fan, and did not know that about Bowsky.
  4. I just watched Two Smart People, and liked it a lot. Great cast, including Elisha Cook, Jr. It was listed as a comedy, but I don't see it. It was a noirish drama/romance.
  5. Yep, I've seen it, many times. TCM runs it pretty often. Lots of good twists, and Ella Raines is a favorite of mine.
  6. If by "troubled soul" a disturbed individual is meant, I'm sure there are some Basehart films where he doesn't play that type. One that comes to mind immediately is the 1976 film Rage. I haven't seen it in years, and wish TCM would show it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069158/reference
  7. That, I cannot agree to. Betty Boop's Snow-White is the best ever. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024578/reference
  8. Family of Man with "Don't Bogart that Joint, My Friend."
  9. My pick for Disney films would be the original Fantasia, and Dumbo. But, as Lynn says, most likely, Disney wouldn't let that happen. I would nominate Hoppity Goes to Town, and Watership Down. But there surely are more animated features deserving of being Essentials. If they would stretch it to go beyond features, a group of short toons from each of the major animation studios would be nice. I'd start with golden age cartoons. My first pick would be Fleischer Bros., including Betty Boop's Sno-White, and the other two BB toons using rotoscoped Cab Calloway. Then, some pre-1948 WB toons.
  10. A few from the 60s : It's Good News Week, by Hedgehoppers Anonymous Surfin' Bird by The Trashmen The Monster Mash, don't recall who did it Walkin' my Cat Named Dog by Norma Tanega Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire We Ain't Got Nuthin' Yet by The Blues Magoos Elusive Butterfly by Bobby Lind Last, but far from least, a local band that is a favorite of mine, Commander Cody, and His Lost Planet Airmen. They, too, had a national hit with Hot Rod Lincoln, from their first album. Their music seemed like it might take off, but, on their second album, they had a song from the 30s, Ever
  11. Some of my all-time favorite TV series, no particular order: Babylon 5 Perry Mason the original series Star Trek the original series That Was the Week That Was You Bet Your Life The Avengers The Westerner Twilight Zone Alfred Hitchcock Presents The Outer Limits the original series Monty Python Doctor Who Masterpiece Mystery The Prisoner Rocky and Bullwinkle Edited by: ValentineXavier on Mar 24, 2014 2:54 AM
