  1. 1. Clark Gable with Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis in a "Wife Vs. Secretary" kind of movie. 2. 3 Stars: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd. 1 Film. Together in a hilarious silent comedy. 3. Fred Astaire with Judy Garland in MORE musicals!
  2. No. No. No. No. No. **WEEPS** http://moviepilot.com/#movies/45691-a-star-is-born/containers/374894-a-star-is-born-has-beyonce-found-her-leading-man?utm_campaign=a-star-is-born-casting&utm_source=fb-stream-post&utm_medium=fb-stream-post
  3. To Kill a Mockingbird Limelight The Crowd The Graduate Yep, satisfied with those.
  4. But, TCM has been slacking with announcements lately. It's a major morale killer to not know a lot of things. There has been no special panels or special screenings announced, and the guest list is skimpy compared to last years. Please, TCM, let us know SOME things! Please.... ~A Loyal fan
  5. "OK, fess up. There are TV movies you really like." Yesh, I know, and yes, I intentionally spelled yes wrong. But, "Yesh" sounds funnier. Anyways, I do love *The Late Shift* (1996). It's one of my guilty pleasures. I can't help it, Kathy Bates gets me every time with that Line: Jay: "I CANT BELIEVE YOU MADE ME LIE TO JOHNNY CARSON!" Helen: "Big Effin' deal! So go to %$^#* Confession!" Hilarious. Plus, I love Dave Letterman, so naturally I like any movie that makes Jay Leno look like a spineless rat. ~The Howling Mad Cinephile PS: The Movie is about Jay Leno and David Letterman's battle to replace Johnny Carson when he retired after 30 years of hosting The "Tonight" Show. It's a real hoot, but the book is the best. I was fortunate enough to talk with the author, NY Times reporter Bill Carter, heck of a guy. Edited by: charliechaplin101 on Dec 29, 2011 2:32 PM
  6. No. Honestly, It would be great if the old ones were available. I'd love to see David Letterman's notoriously bad "Uma....Oprah" monolauge. I don't see much reason in watching them anymore. I watched the emmy's to see if TCM would win for "Moguls and Movie Stars". These awards shows have become a huge kiss butt ceremony for overpair clowns. Back in the early days, it was a thing of prestige. That's a thing that has totally gone out the window in today's film industry.
  7. It seems we've lost a numbering system, so I'll just throw this in: -Apparently, if you're wearing just pajamas, you're pretty much naked. Unless you put a bath robe on, then its okay. -Milk with sandwiches is always the way. -"Are You on the Level?" is the most popular phrase of the 30's and 40's. -The audio in classic films was terrible, except for when the two main characters kiss for the first time. -"Ten Thirty O'Clock" at night was the appropriate time for a DINNER party. -The movie posters were always over dramaticized Case in Point: Poster: Notice how Buff Bogie is, and look at Hepburn's hair. Now, look at this: And this: ~CC101
  8. I just posted a blog on my autogrpahs a couple hours ago, here they all are: http://fan.tcm.com/_The-Autographs/blog/5270575/66470.html
  9. Anything, huh? Well.....the only real question I have is: What is the appeal of Jay Leno? The man is terrible. Yes, David Letterman may have cheated on his wife like crazy, he may have extremely weird hair, and he may have a secret bedroom he calls the "Bunker" but he must be doing something right, because I think he's so much funnier then Jay, and I happen to know a couple Million people who agree with me. Also: Eddie Murphy: Stop taking yourself so seriously, your a comedian, nothing more. You are not a great actor, you are not comedy's leading icon, you are simply Eddie Murphy, you make people laugh. That's it. This is a great thread you've started.
  10. Interesting that this has hit the message boards. Just a couple weeks ago, I posted a blog about the same thing on The Classic Film Union: http://fan.tcm.com/_The-Movies-I-Lost-Sleep-Over/blog/5188304/66470.html Check it out. And to answer your question, Hollywood is a machine. A money making Machine nowadays. They bang them out like hot cakes out there. It's disgusting to see what America has come to.
  11. >misswonderly wrote: >Sometimes I think we're all a bunch of nerds on this website. Not that there's anything wrong with that. This is a test to see if that whole thing works. Why am I doing this? Cuz...Im a nerd.
  12. "A girl tried to make contact with you and you played it that way?" Yes. Well, I am in fact a Heterosexual Female, FYI.
  13. Ha! Although I've never been called a nerd, I've heard much worse. I am a High School Student who cannot stand the likes of The Jersey Shore Cast, and don't see the appeal in Michael Bay films. I once was in an art class with a girl who I thought was a mutual outcast. Boy was I wrong. You see, kids are mean. This particular girl liked Twilight, Vampires, Action Novels and Japanese Anime. I am a Chaplin fan, hence my screenname. I was once reading a book about Chaplin in some down time in art class. Emersed in my readings I hear a voice penetrating my concentration. I was tapped on the shoulder. I turned around to see this girl, she began telling me that I envy everything Hollywood is and I am a jerk for liking Classic Films and saying that I don't care for her favorite actress, Angelina Jolie. What a joke. I said "That's all dandy and good, but you must understand that a part of our humanity is acceptance. I don't tell you you're a jerk for liking Angelina Jolie. By the way, I do NOT envy modern Hollywood, I pity it. It will never have a Golden Age again. You think I want to be a drug addicted, overpaid, greedy, anorexic actress starring in movies like 'The Hangover'? Go away, please, I'm reading." She never talked to me again. Then I'm told that's why I have a limited amount of friends. Well, If a friend is someone who puts you down constantly and you're not allowed to stick up for yourself..... Call me a nerd. Sorry, I got a bit passionate with this one.
  14. It's been done before, but it's always great fun to do, so here it goes. 3 Actors or Actresses you would (Dead Or Alive) Love to Date. My 3: Clark Gable (For Obvious Reasons) William Holden (Again, Obvious Reasons) And..... Peter O'Toole (A younger Pete.)
  15. 1. Everyone drank milk with a sandwich. Always. 2. Awesome phrases like "Are You On The Level?" 3. If you had just pajamas on, you Absoulutely had to put a robe on, or else it was like you were naked I drink Milk with sandwiches and often use the phrase "Are you on the level" because it was so commonly used back then
