  1. Sorry to bump an old thread was looking for the September schedule but Saw this and had to reply. I say Hooray to the casting of Jodie Whitaker for No 13! And not only have I seen all the episodes you listed. I have also listened to most of the lost episodes on audio, big fan of Docto Who extended media specifically Big Finish, and have met many of the Classic Actors and Production team at Doctor Who conventions. And my favorite Doctor is Patrick Troughton. Basically my point is don't stereotype. Most of the actors of the Classic series have happily shown their support for a female
  2. I haven't Joined these boards in awhile. Do you have to put a code/catcha in to prove you aren't a robot. I am assuming you do. Also usually you have to verify the account through email. But again that is common practice for most boards.
  3. TCM probably does block them but more probably join each day. It's not an individual but a bot that can get around bans. They could try making it harder to join the forums though.
  4. I only watched one film on Janet Gaynor day: Lucky Star but I kept thinking of that film so I ended up * Finding Seventh Heaven on YouTube (maybe not the best quality but I was desperate to see it) * Imported Part 2 of the Borzage collection from the UK (This has Lucky Star which is my favorite but I plan to import the one with Street Angel & Seventh Heaven in the future) * Starting reading the bio on Gaynor & Farrell called Lucky Stars. * Have Moonrise a later Borzage film to watch on Amazon Prime. I guess Lucky Star just really inspired me.
  5. Hard to say what my favorite day has been. I can't watch everything so I've decided to focus on films I have never seen before which has made this a rewarding SUTS for me. So far I've seen Lucille Ball: The Dark Corner Edward G. Robinson- Red House & Our Vines have Tender Grapes Fay Wray: The Wedding March Montgomery Clift: The Search Jean Harlow: Bombshell Janet Gaynor: Lucky Star I would say my personal favorites out of these would be Our Vines Have Tender Grapes, Dark Corner, The Search, and Lucky Star. All have been great discoveries (and honestly I can't believe the Sea
  6. Reading through this thread I was shocked Sanders was never chosen. And he never had a SUTS day either? Well I hope TCM is inspired by this thread.
  7. I read two Agatha Christie books that are somewhat related to film. Both Mrs. Marple stories The first (and my favorite of the two) was *The Moving Finger* came out in 1943 the same year as the very similar French Film *Le Corbeau* came out. I am not sure which came first but it is interesting to see two stories from the same year on Poison Pens. The second was *The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side*. This one in my opinion is a lesser Agatha Christie story but it's relation to film is it is obvious Christie took her plot idea from the true life story of Gene Tierney.
  8. I read quite a few film related book this year but since it is the end of the year I doubt I will be reading anymore until 2011. 1) *The Cats in Our Lives: By James & Pamela Mason* Definitely a very different type of biography with James and his wife Pamela taking turns talking about their cats. The book is a bit out of date with the advice they give (like they don't recommend fixing female cats) but I think it gave me an interesting look on James Mason that a regular biography would not. James Mason also did all the illustrations. Here is a Sample The book is OOP but I was a
  9. Yeah I definitely agree when it comes to classic novels I definitely prefer miniseries to films. I also love the 1934 French version of Les Miserables. It's close to 5 hours directed by Raymond Bernard and is definitely a must see. I am sure I mentioned it before but it can never be mentioned too many times. And I didn't know that about Jennifer Ehle. Pride and Prejudice was the first and only thing I have seen of hers that I can remember. Of course at this point I have seen a lot from Colin Firth (looking forward to seeing his new films *The King's Speech* as well). But I agree that
  10. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > > I love those 19th century women writers, but for some reason I prefer my Victorian literature on paper, not celluloid. With a few exceptions, I've never really taken to the Brontes or Austen translated into film. But I kind of have a problem a lot of the time with books being converted into movies. I always like the stories better in my imagination. I know I'm in a small minority with this. > Have you ever seen the Pride and Prejudice Miniseries with Colin Firth. Personally I think it is one of the best literary adaptions.
  11. That is an interesting point you bring up about Hitchcock. I have not read most of the books his movies were based on but I did read 39 Steps. I loved the movie so I thought the book would be a fun read. I hated the book. It was missing all the humor and cleverness of Hitchcock's movie. So this is one case where the movie was definitely better than the book. I also always liked the movie ending of a Little Princess (both Shirley Temple and the 1995 version) compared to the book. Although my friend vehemently disagrees with me on that matter.
  12. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > I also loved The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. (The above-mentioned Phillip Pullman trilogy.) So much that when the film of The Golden Compass came out, I decided I did not want to see it, and purposely stayed away from it. And I like Daniel Craig. But sometimes I love a book so much, I don't want to see the movie of it. Anyone "get" that? I also refused to see the film because I heard a lot was changed from the book and it got poor reviews. While I love seeing my favorite books on screen I don't want t
  13. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > > What's also interesting is, how many people are reading several books at a time. I tend to read one, two at the most, before moving on. If I'm reading two, one would be fiction, the other non-fiction. Otherwise, I'm exploring (kn my imagination) too many different worlds, and I get confused when "worlds collide". I used to be a one book at a time person too but lately I've just become very impatient so while I am reading one book and I hear about another one that sounds really interesting I want to start that one too.
  14. I haven't seen it but I notice Rex Harrison is in it too. Do you recommend the film version?
  15. After discussions in that Hepburn/Thompson thread I decided to read another play by Shaw Major Barbara. I also have been reading Conversations with the Great Movie Makers of Hollywood's Golden Age which is just a bunch of interviews taken from various AFI sessions. I have seen bits and pieces of these interviews before but it is fascinating to read the whole thing. And this is the book I have been quoting on here occasionally. I also have Fahrenheit 451 on the way from the library & my friend let me borrow her copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so I should be starting those s
