  2. Jerry Mathers (Beaver) reacts to Ken Osmond's death - https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/leave-it-to-beaver-jerry-mathers-ken-osmond-reaction
  3. This footage was shot by George Stevens (or his crew) in the immediate aftermath of the German surrender ending the war in Europe. According to Mark Harris, author of Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War (which deals with the wartime work of directors John Ford, John Huston, William Wyler, Frank Capra and George Stevens), Stevens was recruited by Capra to be one of the official, US Government film crews allowed into the battle zones to document the war. Stevens himself appears in several frames of the short film (approximately 15 minutes), which captures the devastation of Berlin and other cities following allied bombing. Since it is in color, it has great immediacy and relateability that you just don't get with black and white. For more details about Stevens and the other directors, I highly recommend Mark's book.
  4. And for sheer claustrophobic enjoyment ... it's hard to beat Das Boot -
  5. Norman Lloyd and Olivia deHavilland: aged 106 and 104, respectively ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Lloyd https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivia_de_Havilland
  6. A short while ago I erroneously reported on Stevie Wonder's passing. As the late, great, writer Mark Twain once said: "News of my demise has been greatly exaggerated !!" I should have gone further and read the details, but in my haste to post I got it wrong. That'll teach me !!! Will certainly be more careful in the future. In the meantime, we can congratulate Stevie on reaching the milestone birthday of 70 !! HAPPY BIRTHDAY , STEVIE, and many happy returns !!!! Again my apologies to the TCM community !! Cinecrazy 😒
  7. The Making of Marathon Man -
  8. I got the chance to meet the beautiful Arlene Dahl on the TCM cruise in 2013, where they showed this movie - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052948/
  9. This movie will never make the "TCM Underground," but that doesn't stop a lot of the action taking place deep within the earth !
  10. Another fairly "enclosed" environment is found in the movie The Wreck of the Mary Deare, starring Gary Cooper and Charlton Heston. They're both trapped below decks on a ship that may sink at any moment, and must overcome both nature and their mutual antagonisms if they are to survive.
  11. She has an imdb page, albeit limited. But she was in a couple films even through she's of course mostly known for work on television. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0313575/
  12. Judging from the number of major stars that have passed away just during the first five months of this year, it is unfortunate that they will probably need a longer song version for 2020 !!
  13. Just found this little film gem -- Beware My Lovely -- on You Tube (can't guarantee it will be up for long). It stars Ida Lupino and Robert Ryan. It was by written by Mel Dinelli, who also wrote The Spiral Staircase, House by the River, and Cause for Alarm. It concerns a woman (Lupino) who invites a handyman (Ryan) over for an afternoon to do some chores, but soon discovers the handyman has some "chores" of his own in mind. As with Spiral Staircase, all the major action takes place inside the house - a very claustrophobic environment. No spoilers ! Full movie is available here - for as long as it's up !!!
