  1. Wish TCM could think out side the box more. Cagney day is showing lots of his pre-codes-which capture Jimmy at his most dynamic-but still not Angels With Dirty Faces or Ceiling Zero. It frustrates the hell out of me as I'm sure it does others like me. Or not seeing Mitchum in Mister Moses, a film I saw back in the 80's on local cable but seems to have been lost in the cracks of underrated gems. Another gripe are the show times. Nice to see Two For the Seesaw or Where's Poppa? on Segal's day but must they be shown in the wee hours? Anyway, glad to see Ty Power and The Black Rose [has it ever b
  2. I get my beloved TCM on youtube since last summer. At times (too many to count) there is a warning stating this is movie is not streamable. Huh? Don't get it and it makes me extremely frustrated, Any clues?
  3. Ask Any Girl a 1959 comedy with David Niven and Shirley MacLaine hasn't seen the light of day in many a moon, either
  4. Why fix it if it isn't broken? New website sucks. Enuf said.
  5. Good call on Mr. Moses. Haven't seen that since the early 80's on an LA independent station; would love to see again. Also some kinda lost gems, IMO, that are not widely broadcast, TMK: Pursued {good call by someone on earlier post}should be available to TCM, curious it's never turned up, that I know. There is a trifecta he made in the mid-50's right after his freedom from RKO, they are : Man With A Gun, Bandido, and Foreign Intrigue, all made for UA, all indies and hard to come by, though I believe TCM has shown them all at one time or other. Fire Down Below should get more air play, too.
  6. I think you can include Ceiling Zero to this list, too.
  7. I owned a video store from 1993-2002. I managed one from 1985-1992. Unfortunately when I finally got my own store the boom of the 1980's had past and stores were soon to be dwindling. Blockbuster hurt the mom and pop stores like mine but so-even more-did Netflix. I do miss them days [actually mostly nights] when the weekends meant business was good and if it rained business was better. Some "new releases' were big deals back in the day. I still remember when Back to the Future hit the stores. And Jurassic Park. Talking about movies all the time with my customers. Recommending something like Th
  8. Good question., that obviously no one has an answer to. They're both Warner Brothers titles and TCM is owned by that corporation. And to buy it on Amazon is $40!!
  9. A great filmmaker has been blacklisted. Make no mistake, this is not a Harvey Weinstein or Bill Cosby situation. No formal charges have been presented. This is a "he said, she said" thing. Amazon won't show his latest film either. It's a shame.
  10. Moving beyond the relationship angle, I loved the first hour of this movie. It reminded me of a lost Twilight Zone episode that was suddenly discovered. The strange, quiet, stillness of the Big Apple, or any metropolis - with some location work to give it an extra quality of realism - in end-of-the-world scenarios always fascinates me.
  11. I always have a rotation of books when I read. Currently they are The Brothers Mankiewicz, Contender: The Story of Marlon Brando, and The Big Picture. Good books all [ at least so far; I haven't yet finished any of them.]
  12. would have loved to see Burton tackle the part of Marlowe, just to see how it turned out. He too would have been a bit too old to play Marlowe, though he was about ten years younger than Mitchum QuoteBurton could have been Marlowe in The Big Sleep re-do that was transplanted to Great Britain. It couldn't have been worse than the one they did make. .
  13. I've seen it many, many times through the years. First time was during it's theatrical run in 1975. I like this and the Dick Powell version, as they both bring different qualities to each movie. I always read about Mitchum being ten to fifteen years to old play Marlowe. He may have been too old age-wise, but the part fit him like a glove. I guess we can wonder how perfect this movie would have been if Mitchum was 47 or 42 or thereabouts, versus the 57 years he was in 1975. It was--and still is--Mitchum's association with noir , his attitude, his aura, his persona, that sold it.
