  1. CineMaven, Thanks so much. they really take me down memory lane. Here are two more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2aEyi-TWFo
  2. At the kind and insightful suggestion of another member (Izcutter), I am creating this post for those members who might remember either Million Dollar Movie or the Late Show. As a small child I was enamored of Million Dollar Movie and watched many classics over and over while they were shown all day and multiple days of the week. The two shows introduced me to King Kong, The Informer, Allegheny Uprising, The Picture of Dorian Grey, Mighty Joe Young, Casablanca and others. My father used to let me stay up with him and watch all the Late Shows til sunrise. I was fortunate to grow up in NJ
  3. Dear Izcutter, Thank you for this fine and caring response that allays my fears about TCM: We were afraid that TCM could go the way of Disney and AMC, to commercials. *Hawaiiansurf,* *As someone who has met the staff of TCM and as one who saw first hand at the TCM Film Festival the way the staff (from Robert O to the programming staff and everyone in-between) interacts and appreciates their viewers, I can tell you that they take their role and the channel very seriously.* *They are all aware that people tend to think that it is only a matter of time before the channel goes
  4. *"Perhaps the multiple posts are due to new posters in the learning curve."* *For various reasons in my history on this Message Board, I doubt that.* *But what's more important is you mentioned "Million Dollar Movie." I so totally remember "MDM." Didn't they used to repeat their movies during the week? I specifically remember seeing the Eddie Cantor story and Dobie Gillis and of all things: "The Giant Behomoth" on Channel 9. I haven't heard great things from posters here about Comcast. That's a real bummer. Even though the Fox Movie Channel is repetitive, they do show movies that TCM does
  5. *Sorry to read about your shock and disappointment. Hopefully TCM can make it up to its fans. There are others just as shocked and disappointed as you. Check them out in this thread. http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=155110&start=30&tstart=0 And if I haven't said it before, welcome to the TCM Message Boards* My husband and I are avid fans of classic movies. We mourned the transition of AMC to commercials. We have Comcast cable in NJ and for years could not receive TCM. Now we cannot subscribe to FOX Movie Chanel with Comcast. We were afraid that TCM
  6. Yes, my husband called out to me about it. Quite an interesting bit part.
  7. Yes this was noticed in the post below Ghandi as We Speak! My husband are holding our ribs over the other post on this topic!
  8. Thank you so much for your always valued insight! TCM is the last bastion of commercial free classics (one cannot really count FOX). I am sorry to see the glitch. This is why we still have people, since computers are imperfect. Thankfully, due to your post, this is appears to be an unfortunate anomaly in an otherwise perfect day of John Mills.
  9. I cannot believe that Turner has interrupted the movie for Ben to comment and now show TCM coming attractions. Is this the shape of things to come? Will they do this to The Last Emporer? Does this mean we will not have commercial free movies? IS TCM going the way of AMC and Disney? At least HBO showed Ghandi without commercials even for their own station. TCM did not interrupt Dr. Zhivago> Very suspicious! I am shocked and disappointed!

  10. Where is Charles Laughton in "Witness for the Prosecution" ? Edited by: hawaiiansurf on Aug 22, 2010 4:56 PM
  11. Robert Mitchum sang in this production as well as "Night of the Hunter" and "Rachael and the Stranger." It appears that there is a spit on whether he is the one singing "river" Please reference: http://www.digitallyobsessed.com/displaylegacy.php?ID=3459 I defer to the experts on this board. I thought I remembered my husband and I seeing Robert Mitchum credited for the title song. But memories are not perfect.

  12. I liked that movie also. Anthony Quin and Maureen O'Hara were great! Too bad John Candy did not live to make more movies. Ms. O'Hara has such a long career that she has survived many other great actors and actresses. It is fortunate that we have them still on movies shown on TCM!
  13. Yes the voice can really make an actor attractive. I agree with you about Robert Mitchum, his voice just is totally sexy. He sang the song "River of No Return" in the movie. I also have loved Ronald Coleman's voice forever! I can still hear him as Sidney Carton in "A Tale of Two Cities!"
  14. You are so fortunate to have actually met her. I have loved her movies since I was a child watching Million Dollar Movie and seeing her in Hunchback of Notre Dame, Jamaica Inn, Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation, The Quiet Man and others. For those of you who are fans I found a website endorsed by Ms. O"Hara with loads of photos and interesting items: http://www.moharamagazine.com/ And a Youtube Montage including Ms O'Hara singing during the Montage of her work. Very lovely and truly enjoyable. And this Youtube montage with Ms O'Hara singing I Only Have Eyes For You!!
