  1. My favorite has always been *On Her Majesty's Secret Service* (1969) because Diana Rigg was in it. She has long been my hero.
  2. > {quote:title=markbeckuaf wrote:}{quote} > Speaking of that--who do you prefer in the role of The Falcon? Sanders, Conway or Calvert? If pressed I have to say I prefer Tom Conway but only because George Sanders played him exactly the same as he played The Saint and did not try to truly establish it as separate character. It is sad to say I have never seen any of the movies with John Calvert as The Falcon. I have read reviews of them and wish very much TCM could show them. I prefer Louis Hayward as The Saint because he carried the amoral air I find so wonderful. I always fe
  3. Thank you for information on foot problems of the era. That explains why I could find no noir film on "Droppedit's Shoe Loss Page": http://with1shoe.com/ "This site is devoted to women losing one of their footwear and getting stranded afterwards wearing only one shoe."
  4. *I Love a Mystery* (1945) *The Devil's Mask* (1946) *The Unknown* (1946) Jim Bannon as Jack Packard. As far as I know this is the complete series. I have only seen one so these are going to be watched with great interest. *The Saint In New York* (1938) - Louis Hayward *The Saint Strikes Back* (1939) - George Sanders *The Saint In London* (1939) - George Sanders *The Saint's Double Trouble* (1940) - George Sanders *The Saint Takes Over* (1940) - George Sanders *The Saint In Palm Springs* (1941) - George Sanders *The Saint's Vacation* (1941) - Hugh Sinclair *The Saint Meets the
  5. What must one think of movies with titles like *We're Not Dressing* (1934) or *Putting Pants on Philip* (1927)?
  6. Is *Picadilly Jim* the one where he is cartoonist and falls in love with girl whose family he parodies? I love it and have not seen it in years. I have wondered why TCM can not do a director of the month as well as star of the month. I hate to make big deal of it since TCM is already so wonderful.
  7. > {quote:title=redriver wrote:}{quote} > I lived in Chicago for thirty years. Wonderful city! You do have anonymity. Nobody cares who you are and what you do. I lived in a big city four years and never saw people who lived in apartments on either side of me. When living in a small town I was depositing my paycheck and the teller asked if I wanted to keep out more cash because the dress I had looked at in the window down the street the week before was now on sale. Capuchin likes to tell how he learned to not lock his car in Detroit because people would break out windows to get
  8. If you have a mind for that sort of thing: A Fly in the Pink (1971) Boobs in the Night (1943) The Bushwhackers (1925) Famous Boners (1942)
  9. Of course my mind is pure. Pure what I will not say.

  11. My favorite Communist was Hedy Lamarr as Theodore in *Comrade X* (1940). She is in danger because she is true Communist in Russia. Her father Felix Bressart/Vanya explains: "The communists have ideas. But they found out you can't run a government with everybody going around having ideas. So what is happening, the communists are being executed so that Communism should succeed." So true.
  12. > {quote:title=CineMaven wrote:}{quote} > Well WHAT are you two night owls doing up so late? I am not a night owl but I have been called a bat. It seems to me to be more appropriate for this thread. I really did like your review very much. I hope you can remind me when this movie is scheduled.
  13. > {quote:title=LoveFilmNoir wrote:}{quote} > What I would give to have access to TCM's entire broadcast history! I kind of wish they had broadcast dates of rare films on the film's info page. It is sad to say I do not have access to all TCM history. You can find many old schedules at: http://www.classicmovies.org/turner/turner0106.htm The site once listed schedules back to May 2005 but now it only lists schedules back to January 2006.
  14. > {quote:title=CineMaven wrote:}{quote} > She doesnt pay attention to the ominous music signifying a monster in the midst. Oh thank you loads for saying that Miss Maven! It made me wonder what background music would be appropriate for certain moments in my life. Now I have the theme from *The Twilight Zone* going through my head on an endless loop.
  15. According to my database *Ride the Pink Horse* (1947) last aired on TCM on May 9, 2005 and November 26, 2005. Some movies seem to have a six year cycle so perhaps it will air again soon.
  16. To hear of any great man's passing saddens me and I have sympathy with all here who will miss him. As I did not know him as personal friend I have not lost him. He will forever be with me as he has always been: as The Great Leslie in *The Great Race* (1965), as Josephine in *Some Like it Hot* (1959), as George in *Goodbye Charlie* (1964) and many other roles dear to my heart. No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any mann
  17. > {quote:title=Fedya wrote:}{quote} > If *Crime Unlimited* was the one I remember, it was a really nifty little police drama. It was nice crime drama made on obviously little budget. I am sure I have seen same sets in other movies. Plot reminded me much of *Calling Bulldog Drummond* (1951). I believed I recognized lead actress and when I looked her up I found she was Lilli Palmer who was so great as Anna in Anastasia (1956) and as ex-wife Kate in *The Pleasure of his Comapny* (1961). I tagged this to watch again some day.
  18. > {quote:title=JackFavell wrote:}{quote} > I was never much for Lucy either, I didn't like the humor of embarrassment. But as I've gotten older, I really appreciate the number of quality shows she did - all to make people laugh. Her humor and "getting into trouble": have grown on me, and now I really like her. The first episode I saw of I Love Lucy was of chocolates on conveyor belt. I laughed so hard my side ached. Next episode I saw she was advertising tonic. It was glorious and I thought I was in heaven to have found this show. Feeling quickly died as I saw most episodes found h

Thank you for your kind words but it has been great pleasure to do it. > Sometimes with comedy it just has to strike you in the right way - there is no right or wrong about what you like. I never liked the Bob Hope comedies much, but I really love *The Long Long Trailer* with Lucy which is almost the same level of silliness. Go figure. I am very happy you say there is no right or wrong. I love the early Bob Hope comedies but I do not care for Lucille Ball in her comedy roles. I will
  20. I knew Barbara Stanwyck only from movies such as: *Double Indemnity* (1944), *Jeopardy* (1953) and *The Two Mrs. Carrolls* (1947). To see her in *The Lady Eve* (1941) was surprising but her role was still strong and intelligent. I was not prepared for her to be such delightful ditz in *The Mad Miss Manton* (1938). It may be shock of seeing her in such a role that endeared movie to me. I do not have same reaction to *Christmas in Connecticut* (1945). I felt that movie very uneven. In my watching I have also found strong love/tolerate reaction to comedies. I know Bing Crosby and Bob Hope 'Ro
  21. > {quote:title=MissGoddess wrote:}{quote} > Do you have a few that have impressed you so much they are now among your favorites? I mean just two or three really outstanding ones? You are going to think me terribly shallow but my new favorites are almost all comedies. I never watched very much of them before this. All my friends and family and I mostly watched serious movies with only an occasional comedy. We did not consider comedies important. I did not know what I was missing. If I had to pick three of which I had never heard but now love: *I Love You Again* (1940) *Munc
  22. > {quote:title=LoveFilmNoir wrote:}{quote} > Incredible. Have you been rating the films or even making a brief synopsis of each as you go? Would seem like an interesting little archive. I am thinking of doing this with my own DVD collection. Sadly I did not realize scope of what I was doing and made no records. I believed I would remember good films because I usually have a very good memory for such things. It was not until I was more than one month into it that I realized I was not sure which movies I had seen when looking at brief descriptions. I believe it was in June that I thou
  23. > {quote:title=MyFavoriteFilms wrote:}{quote} > I hoped that if I posted it in advance I could get some non-competitive feedback. After reading your reply, I don't feel too encouraged. I always try to keep my mind open because I very much like it when I am pleasantly surprised. I am looking forward to seeing your schedule.
  24. > {quote:title=MyFavoriteFilms wrote:}{quote} > I just made a schedule. I think I will post it in this thread later today. I am very sorry for not understanding but I must ask: "Why are you doing such a thing?" If you truly believe you are good at making schedules why do you not wait for Challenge? You may surprise me but your description sounds to me to be more appropriate to film school list than what is appealing to viewing audience. To build schedule by date means putting best movies at times when few can watch. That is very academic. It is not how real world programm
