  1. What film are you referencing? I ask because others are discussing Blood of Dracula, the film for this Saturday, which was released in 1957 and the above photo is dated 1974. Also I don't see a link between Blood of Dracula and Nicholson-Arkoff.
  2. Where the teeth actually his, or did the costume department use artificial teeth to achieve a more realistic hobo?
  3. This is why I just use; Chester Morris serial. I enjoy this serial, especially the first film, since it also stars Rochelle Hudson.
  4. What I've been doing is re-starting my weekly or bi-weekly jam sessions. I really missed these. While I didn't play with other musicians (since March of 2020), I did practice a lot and work on things I had put off for years. We also shared what tunes we were working on. So even though we hadn't played together for over 15 months we were more connected, musically than we were before; This is important to me because I get so much joy connecting musically with others.
  5. I had to look up the storyline for this film and hobo-hype fits to a T. Marvin and Carradine in competition for hobo of the year.
  6. For an actor I define a good biography as one that most covers their career; the films they were in, what they might have said about the directors and other actors they worked with, and in Gloria case, how she developed her hard-but-vulnerable-no-nonsense screen persona, which we see starting in 1947 in Crossfire and Song of the Thin Man. But I assume any biography about Gloria would focus mainly on her off-screen "antics" (mainly the relationship and marriages with Nicholas Ray and his son, Tony). I'm really not that interested in that angle (for any actor,. musician, artis
  7. There was no way he was going to win in the 2022 Ohio GOP Primary in his district.
  8. Islands in The Stream is a Paramount film released in 1977 and thus, TCM would have to go-out-of-their way to lease film. (such a film isn't part of the Ted Turner library of films that is now owned by TCM's parent Time-Warner).
  9. I forgot about that. June was added to the cast of the T.V. show.
  10. Like I said we will just have to agree-to-disagree. For one I don't really know what a "leftist" is; I.e. it is too broad of a term and, like a lot of labels, tends to be used by people to scapegoat and marginalize segments of the population. But hey, I see you're doing the same with MAGA. I would rather discuss actual topics instead of broad categorizations; Conservatives are like this, or liberals are like that, Dems believe this, GOPers that, etc... I find discussing actual topics is a better way for me to find common ground with people; i.e. these broad cat
  11. BS. Climate change can be addressed and there are many changes that could be made to reduce potential future harm but with gun violence in the USA with the sheer amount of guns already out there: Sorry, I just don't see where more gun-control laws (like the ones CA already has) will make much of a difference. But hey, if you know of some, I'm open to them (expect CA already has the strongest gun laws in the nations so it would not apply to my state anyhow). One has to be open enough to understand little beyond the government taking guns away and outlawing the sales of bullet
  12. Well I guess it all depends on how defines "product"; as you have seen some TCM viewers believe the social commentary is part of the TCM "product" (i.e.to them it is not only the movies shown). While I find that POV silly, it could impact viewership. E.g. if a guy with orange hair was to advise his followers not to watch TCM because TCM hates white people based on their social commentary, that could be something that would impact TCM's bottom line. (just like if famous African-Americans like Oprah said to boycott TCM because they are showing films like GWTW or
  13. Well we can disagree that progressive have made a faith of science. Again, if they did they wouldn't have such an anti-science stance on issues like gender identity. But I do wish to note that I don't believe that there are any inherent behavioral differences between the genders other than those related to biology; E.g. child birth, breast feeding etc... How one dresses, what their hobbies are, their hair style, etc.. are gender neutral in my world. Also what gender someone has sex with doesn't concern me at all. I.e. there are no inherent masculine or feminin
  14. If gun training wouldn't have much of an impact why should state legislators push such measures. Wouldn't doing so be lacking common-sense? Hey, I'm not a gun owner and I live in CA which has the strongest gun laws in the nation, so I'm not opposed to them. But if such measures don't reduce gun violence enough to make them worthwhile I don't see what is gained by others states pushing such measures. (so to me the debate is if there are measures that can make enough of an impact).
  15. Well since wind appears to be a theme:
  16. While I agree with the first sentence, the second sentences appears to imply that there would be a lot less gun violence in the USA if gun training was mandatory. Is that what you meant to imply? I don't think that would help much since the main issue is just too many guns in too many homes. E.g. if I'm a criminal and I need a gun all I have to do is break into 5 or so homes before I find one (depending on the state). In Britain or Japan etc... I might have to break into 150 homes before I found a gun.
  17. Of course I knew the photo wasn't taken on a train. I was just making a joke since the other poster mentioned that Hell Bound featured a feet fetish and trains. Also, who cares about trains when there is a photo of a Playmate of the Year. Even Casey Jones wouldn't go there.
  18. In these times, large corporations do care about the potential harm a small number of customers can do using social media. It would be foolish not to have a strategy to try to minimize that potential harm.
  19. TCM uses "classic" as just a marketing term it has no actual meaning with regards to the qualify of the film. E.g. how many 30s "programmers" are high qualify films? Few IMO. The studios made these to be released one time as the "B" picture. Hey, I love many of those films warts and all because I'm a fan of the actors and directors of that era, but they are not high qualify films and they were never meant to be.
  20. There is a term for them and that is the term that should be used and not transgender. AND it does matter how rare they are since the term transgender is being used for the 99.9% that were not born-that-way (having characteristics of both genders) and the entire social justice movement is about those with psychological issues and not those born with birth defects. Clearly those with said birth defects may need medical treatment, especially when they hit puberty. A just society should do all it can to assist them (just like the blind etc...). But those with psychological issue
  21. Great to see Sydney Greenstreet as SOTM. Also happy to see TCM is showing THAT WAY WITH WOMEN (1947) with Dane Clark and Martha Vickers. This was a film Warners had Vickers star in after her splash as Carmen in The Big Sleep. Silly film but fun with Greenstreet playing Vickers' father. Vickers has a lot of nice outfits (daddy is rich), and she wears them well:
  22. I gave the same reply I always do: as long as 80% or so of the films TCM shows are American Studio-Era films (pre-1969), I'm fine with the brand. What we are seeing is the same-old-same-old; TCM shows a couple of post-2000 films and oh, my,, oh my,,,, all is lost!
  23. June Blair was Playboy's Playmate of the Month, the same year Hell Bound came out (1957). Here is a photo where she is paying a lot of attention to her feet. Don't know if the photo was taken on a train or not.
  24. Next people will be saying that TCM didn't show post-2000 films back in 1998!
  25. Delon was a very handsome and dashing actor. Just saw him a few days ago in The Sicilian Clan. The film also stars Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura. I only saw the last half and the ending and how Delon makes-outs, didn't surprise me.
