  1. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > What an original idea -I bet you're the only one doing the challenge who's got that in their program ! I believe I will be only one with this in my schedule because all others who often enter seem to have more sense. I know a person must be a little unhinged to even try to make a schedule but they are not this crazy.

  3. > {quote:title=wouldbestar wrote:}{quote} > Hope you and your mother had an enjoyable time together. We are fortunate we are both in good health. Mother has a new boyfriend. He is Jewish so she is learning to cook Kosher. I am glad they no longer weigh you before boarding airplane. I am sure I gained a great deal. I did miss movies while there but only when I was tired from trying to keep up with her and wanted quiet moment to relax. I hope you also had enjoyable time with your mother.
  4. > {quote:title=casablancalover wrote:}{quote} > I LOVE THIS! Thank you for your kind words. I wanted to see if it was possible to make it fit a whole day. It was bloody-mindedness which carried me through because so many versions almost but not quite fit. I have read that TCM sometimes uses ideas from Programming Challenges. I do not think they will steal this one.
  5. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > Frog's legs just remind me too much of high school science class. Bleeauh! That reminds me of kind-hearted student who could not bring herself to dissect frog in biology class so she edged over to the side of the room and cracked open the window and let her frog jump through to freedom. It was done with good intentions but might have been nicer if biology lab had not been on the third floor.
  6. > {quote:title=LonesomePolecat wrote:}{quote} > But I didn't understand -- where was your fashion challenge? Thank you for your kind words. My fashion theme was Wednesday evening. *Queen for a Day* Royal Robes are the Highest Fashion I often have an impression that a Queen walking down an aisle is much like a model on a runway but for a Queen there is no competition because none can come close to her grace and refinement. She also has the best seamstresses in the kingdom so that helps. Theme of 'day' was by accident. I could not think of anything at all. Capuchin told
  7. I was able to fit a 20th Century Vole movie into my TCM Programming Challenge #17 entry. Monday October 10 Some Days it is Just One Thing After Another All Day Long 20th Century Vole Special Presentation: *Judge Hardy's Children Of Paradise For Three Little Pirates Of The Prairie Thunder in the City Without Men Of The Fighting Lady Of Vengeance of the Zombies On Broadway Ladies They Talk About Face of a Fugitive in the Sky Murder on a Honeymoon* (M-Mmm-Good) All Star Cast. Directors: Seitz, Carne, et al. 20th Century Vole, 1439 mins. http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?thre
  8. I would think dating a vampire would be good experience for a girl. It is greatly romantic and he is not interested in anything physical below the neck.
  9. SansFins' Challenge Schedule Program Notes *Beauty And The Beast* (1946) I had never heard of Josette Day before TCM showed this movie. She is captivating. *Knight Without Armour* (1937) A wonderful Marlene Dietrich movie. Some Days it is Just One Thing After Another All Day Long In Hot Topics forum is a thread for people to put together unrelated movie titles and create fanciful descriptions of resulting movie. It is great fun to read. I can not think of witty descriptions but with database I can string together many titles. I like this string because it ends with *Murder on a Ho

  11. I love Claude Rains in *The Unsuspected* (1947). He is so deliciously evil. I wish there was a movie in which he wins at the end. I am sure I would melt if I saw him gloating in all his magnificent malevolence.
  12. Thank you misswonderly but I felt it was inappropriate when I went back and read it again. This is discussion of movies and so reality can be considered off-topic. I am sure many people have seen truly horrible things and they do not need to be reminded of them when talking of escapist entertainment. I asked Capuchin what was most effective horror movie for him. He said *Anita Liberty* (1997). He said it sends chills up his spine every time he thinks of a woman on stage saying of her ex-boyfriend: "I am dedicating my life to publicly humiliating him." It seems you do not need scary s
  13. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > SansFin, I think nobody knows what to say after that last sentence in your post. I am sorry it was inappropriate. I have changed it to a statement less graphic. I said it only because when I must think of something of true horror I close my eyes and those images are there. They said we should not try to repress those memories. They said we should treat them as matter-of-fact things. That is all I was doing here. I am very sorry if it upset anyone.
  14. > {quote:title=hlywdkjk wrote:}{quote} > I thought I was so smart using a mechanical pencil on grid paper when doing Challenge Schedules. Capuchin is very much the engineer and is most comfortable using computers to arrange things. It took less than ten minutes for him to teach me how to use CAD program to make schedules. You make a line which is as long in inches as movie is long in minutes and put text onto line. You make those into a 'block' so it moves together. Then you click on it and drag it where you want on grid. It is great for seeing how much time is left to fill in and
  15. Thank you very much for your kind words. I did not make choice to miss movies but I do not regret it. Capuchin found a clinic with new pain management program and said I must travel with him. At the airport I am thinking we are going to Atlanta or California but he takes me to gate for Zurich. He checked into the clinic and I stayed that night in rooms they have there for family. They did assessment and said he can have procedure. He said I would be bother if I stayed there the whole time so he gives me airplane ticket to send me to Odessa. It was just in time for me to be with my mother for h
  16. Please excuse me for posting a thing very much off-topic and perhaps disrupting thread but I will appreciate some advice. I have returned from being with my mother for a week. I did not know I was going until it was time to board the airplane and it has put me terribly behind on my watching movies so I can see all movies in my esso's collection before end of the year. There are also now nearly forty hours of movies on DVR from during my trip. I know he set it to record all Hammer films on Friday nights but there are also many others. I have looked and do not recognize any of the titles as
  17. I believe Capuchin made a very nice schedule. It is over-the-top with remakes but I know of great differences between versions I have seen and would very much like to see this on TCM sometimes for movies where I know of only one version. Thank you for making a great challenge Countess! I only have two days and one evening to do and then checking all of it before I can post mine.
  18. The only time a horror movie is effective on me is when there is great polarity. I need it to engage me deeply before the monster appears. It has to give me puzzle or create concern for character on non-horror matter so I am involved and identify with the characters before the shock and terror of unseen beast. *Psycho* (1960) did that for me by making me wonder if Norman Bates was going to steal her money or if she was going to fall in love with him. I was truly concerned whether Norman's mother would like her. I am perhaps only person in the world to have seen it without seeing shower sce
  19. Thank you for those kind words. I do hope you watch them again. They are all priceless. I often write such things but by the time I complete my thoughts and then groom and regroom it to make sure I did not any words out or make misppelings it is usually several days and everyone has lost interest and the thread has moved to third or fourth page. Sadly my analysis is obviously flawed. I believe *Tovarich* (1937) is one of the most romantic movies ever made. They were powerful people but they took no risk in love. They married with the blessing of the Czar and moment when they realized they
  20. It is hard for me to put into words the basics of a truly romantic movie. I do not mean only to write it in English but to state it clearly in any language. It is like experiencing the joy of a sunrise over a forest on a frosty morning and trying to explain the feeling in terms of atmospheric temperature gradients affecting observation of the electromagnetic spectrum between 400nm and 750nm in juxtaposition with the seasonal state of deciduous flora. I believe it is very important the two people do not need each other in the conventional sense. They are great and good people in their own r
  21. > {quote:title=finance wrote:}{quote} > a young podiatrist, who was complaining that he was never sure whether women wanted to go out with him for himself. "Let's face it, he said, I'm a good catch". Many might consider him a good catch. He had the prestige of the title, he surely made as much money as a real doctor and there was no danger of him being called out at three in the morning for an emergency corn-ectomy.
  22. > {quote:title=traceyk65 wrote:}{quote} > Sean Connery. Ooo ahh, He can do more with a lifted eyebrow than most guys can with their whole faces. If he lifted my eyebrow I would follow him anywhere.
  23. I believe boys always came only to see Mrs. Peel in cat-suit. Many of us fell in love with John Steed. Who could not? He was mature, sophisticated and had a playful side. Mrs. Peel being his equal was icing on the cake. We did not have access to American television. I think my parents did not have television set until about 1970. I doubt teachers would have thought Honey West acceptable teaching tool. We were learning English and all know Americans speak it well only in movies.
