  1. I would nominate "Tom Boy" by Bettie Serveert. This turned up in the 1994 film, "Amateur".
  2. Anthony Mann directed "The Man From Laramie". Excellent movie, though.
  3. MAN ABOUT TOWN (1939) It looks like a fun musical comedy with an interesting cast, and a screenplay by Morrie Ryskind.
  4. "Plan 9 From Outer Space" is the gift that keeps on giving for stupid lines. My favorite line from that epic is "Inspector Clay is dead! Murdered! AND SOMEBODY'S RESPONSIBLE!"
  5. I was pleasantly surprised to see "The Battle Of The Century" get chosen. There are Laurel & Hardy films I would pick over this one, but can understand why this was chosen given how popular pie fights were in slapstick comedy and the one in this film is on an epic level (plus it's more clever than most).
  6. Funny you should mention this. Not too long ago, I was reviewing my VHS tapes to see if there were any movies that I had not seen or anything that I wanted to see again before disconnecting my VHS player. I caught a few of these TCM on-air announcements and was thinking that I wish they didn't stop doing them.
  7. Well, would you believe the Maxwell Smart reference was intentional? As for movies remade from TV shows, the only one I can think of from a TV comedy that I liked was MAVERICK (if that counts as a comedy). There were a few from TV dramas that I liked: THE FUGITIVE, THE UNTOUCHABLES. a few of the STAR TREK movies, parts of TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE.
  8. It's been a long time since I've seen THE VANISHING remake, but I seem to recall it had a very different ending than the original. Nevertheless, I agree with your opinion of it.
  9. Well, would you believe David Soul of STARSKY AND HUTCH fame? He played Rick in the short lived TV version from 1983.
  10. He was more of a character actor and wasn't in any Hollywood movies from the 30's, but Nehemiah Persoff is 100 years old and will hopefully celebrate his 101st birthday in August.
  11. What film roles did Gene Hackman turn down?
  12. Scooby Doo Meets Laurel and Hardy Season 1, Episode 10
  13. I get what you're saying, but for PLANET OF THE APES (l968), Heston's over the top acting works perfectly. This was not the right movie for the nuanced performance that Peck would have given. Although, I admit that Douglas would have been good here too because he could gnash his teeth with the best of them.
  14. True Coleman fans would have also collected his acting debut in the short film, KEEP GOING (2013). I vaguely remember the trade papers at the time hailing Coleman as the comeback kid. Unfortunately, he didn't take the title of the film to heart, but fans are still awaiting his next film project.
