  1. What is the earliest it has been posted? On the morning of the first day of a new month?
  2. Maybe Audrey has a link for the highest money earners in Hollywood? I bet John Wayne was THE wealthiest. He owned an island off the coast of Central America. Plus all the real estate he owned in Orange County, around his home in Newport.
  3. Patful comment Posted: Mar 28, 2010 11:02 AM reported for general abuse. Anyway-- back on topic, we have about four days until we see if the June schedule is posted. Is anyone going to make a point of being on the internet at midnight to see the ball drop and the new schedule ushered in?
  4. I'd like to see FLESH FEAST...seems kinda gruesome, but I'm curious as to how Veronica Lake photographed at the end of her career. And after reading the synopsis for the film, it does sound interesting.
  5. Most of Lake's work is with Paramount. FMC shows her film SLATTERY'S HURRICANE quite often. But she would be a great choice. Ann Sheridan is vastly underrated. She's good all the way up to THE OPPOSITE SEX.
  6. I heartily concur. It would be great if these silent comedies were shown on Saturday or Sunday morning, then more kids and new fans could get exposed to them. I think they will be showing one that Keaton did with Fatty Arbuckle...it's called LOVE (on April 18). They are also showing STEAMBOAT BILL JR. that evening.
  7. Thanks Holly for reminding me about the licensing agreements. A new thread was posted about fans' wishes to have Joel McCrea be a future Star of the Month. Maybe that won't happen in June, but hopefully sometime later this year. He definitely deserves a month-long tribute. I would also like to see a month devoted to Hedy Lamarr. Has that been done ?
  8. Incidentally, I have to say this, because it's like therapy for me (LOL), but we just know...we just absolutely know...that SOME LIKE IT HOT will be scheduled for June. So one little mystery is solved, one little piece of the puzzle can be put into place...because SOME LIKE IT HOT is the cornerstone in TCM's programming. Ha!
  9. I think that's a good way to spin it. But I would still like to have seen it in the original version. Probably I like OUR HOSPITALITY the best, and his daughter says it was her father's favorite.
  10. You're right Prince...it's like taking a stab in the dark. LOL They can't do the schedules a whole year in advance, because they are probably negotiating license agreements with Fox and Paramount on an on-going basis. However, the films they have in their library, like SOME LIKE IT HOT, well then can go ahead and pencil those in each month (and they do!).
  11. Patful's comment reported for harrassment.
  12. Supposedly, SHERLOCK JR. did not do well with test audiences (or critics) so he edited it down quite a bit. That's why it has only a 45-minute running time. I imagine the excised footage was destroyed, or there would've been a new restored version by now. TCM showed OUR HOSPITALITY not too long ago...it's another classic!
  13. *JOEL MCCREA* was one of THE most versatile American actors on screen. He had a long film career. In the beginning he was known for those great precodes he did, like BED OF ROSES: McCrea[/i]ConstanceBennettCommon+Law.jpg] And BIRD OF PARADISE. He made four films with Miriam Hopkins including BARBARY COAST and THESE THREE (she was his most frequent costar in the 30s). Plus he did an early horror film-- THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME. Don't forget his work in the suspense genre with Hitchcock in FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT. He was a favorite of Preston Sturges, having
  14. Tonight TCM is airing a double feature of Buster Keaton movies. Two films from 1924 have been selected: SHERLOCK, JR. and THE NAVIGATOR. The films show off Keaton's considerable talents as a comic (and were also directed by him). Both appear on the American Film Institute?s list ?100 Years?100 Laughs.? The first choice, SHERLOCK, JR., is about a projectionist who dreams that he becomes part of a mystery movie. Keaton plays a man in love with a beautiful girl (Kathryn McGuire), but complications occur when he is accused of stealing her father's watch. He then falls asleep at work
  15. Okay, great...you are definitely the go-to person in this area!
  16. Filed Under: *ANTI-SEMITISM AND THE HOLOCAUST* Today?s Picks: *GENTLEMAN?S AGREEMENT (1947)* & *THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK (1959)* In Gentleman's Agreement, a journalist (played by Gregory Peck) goes undercover as a Jew to research anti-semitism. The story is based on Laura Z. Hobson?s novel. Although the film was controversial during its time, it is highly regarded today. The classic film was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar in 1947. In 1959, George Stevens directed The Diary of Anne Frank, a movie that was based on a Pulitzer Prize winning play. The play was inspire
  17. UNDER CAPRICORN has Ingrid with Joe Cotten and Michael Wilding (one of Liz Taylor's husbands). It didn't do too well when it was released, because the scandal about Ingrid's pregnancy by Rossellini had just hit and she was blacklisted. Also, Ingrid had a falling out with Selznick (that's why she didn't make any more films with him and Hitchcock.) But the movie has gone on to become a cult classic and critics rate it very highly. The production values are superb in it, and it's in Technicolor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_Capricorn
  18. Thanks, that's a good link too. But I meant top films from the silent era up to '44.
  19. Now, my question is how can we find out what the top performers were from 1920 - 1944? I came across the figures for Marion Davies' films in a biography about her. Those were taken from Hearst's records at Cosmopolitan Pictures. But I would like to see how other films did during those years.
  20. The Box Office Report page is great and I just bookmarked it. (It covers 1945-1989 apparently.) I like Box-Office Mojo, but they don't have financial figures for a lot of the older films.
  21. Glad you enjoyed it. Hitchcock is the king of the process shot. LOL It is a very fascinating film. It makes you wish that Dali had worked in Hollywood more or at least collaborated with Hitch some more. Have you seen Ingrid in UNDER CAPRICORN? That's another very fascinating film..,her third and final with the great director. And of course, Peck does one more with Sir Alfred: THE PARADINE CASE (which was also done with Selznick and has an epic feel to it).
  22. THE DOLLY SISTERS is one you don't hear too much about...some of these musicals have become very forgotten by the masses. Recently, on the Stage Door thread, we were talking about SWANEE RIVER. These films need to be more widely available. How can they find new audiences if they don't get the chance...?
  23. The rating definitely does hurt them financially. That's obvious when you look at the earnings. But if filmmakers insist on making these kinds of films, then they have to decide that profit cannot be the motivation, and they are doing it strictly for the art. If it's truly art and not porn, then there should be no problem with this classification system. Classification is not censorship. When we buy cuts of meat, we don't complain that if it's harder to find a certain grade or quality, that it's censorship. We just know we need to go to some other market to find it.
  24. Are you baiting me? I don't have much time for this because I am going to a Robert Culp film festival, where they are going to be playing all his big blockbuster hits (it should take about ten minutes but I still have to be there in case the Entertainment Tonight cameras need a sound bite from me). I never said they owed us for something that hasn't happened. Don't twist what I'm saying. I said they owe us as consumers...continued quality product and good customer relations. Movies 24 hours a day and a website is not necessarily enough. Service can always be improved. And I never
