  4. The Warner Bros. fanfare is absent in the movies scored by Korngold. Example:
  5. The distaste for Criterion is interesting. I've only bought three titles from them (Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes on Blu-Ray and Ikiru on DVD) and found them all to be pricey but excellent. The print of Black Narcissus was far superior to what I've seen on TCM. All three are pretty well packed with documentaries and interview footage. Are these the exception?
  6. There needs to be a SOTM for Glenda Farrell
  7. They ARE showing It's Love I'm After. It will air at 9:30 ET on July 10.
  8. All of the movies listed for the 21st feature Ida Lupino
  9. Watched Merry Wives of Reno the other night. Funniest movie I've seen in a while.
  10. I'd rather see more black-and-white.
  11. Guess I'll play devil's advocate here. These are just some of the movies/roles I wouldn't want to have missed out on had these women been at other studios. Ida Lupino The Man I Love The Hard Way High Sierra They Drive By Night Pillow to Post Escape Me Never Devotion Ann Sheridan It All Came True The Man Who Came to Dinner Torrid Zone Kings Row Nora Prentiss They Drive By Night Angels With Dirty Faces Juke Girl Olivia de Havilland A Midsummer Night's Dream Captain Blood It's Love I'm After The Strawberry Blonde Devotion Any of her comedy roles Just to be cle

  13. I always thought they just sold whatever Movies Unlimited sells.
  14. Bogart actually was in a musical: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MueEXgwZjiw
  15. I should've worded that differently. You can certainly compare the popularity of movies from different eras, but that comparison should take into account other factors outside of box office receipts and inflation unless you're just trying to find out what movie sold the most tickets as a matter of trivia.
  16. You can really only make box office comparisons between movies of the same era. Diffrent economic climates, the popularity of television, home video options, etc. have changed viewing habits over the years.
  17. They need to make a new one that shows how you can only see two guys in the three-way standoff at the end of the pan-and-scan version of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY. Poor Tuco.

And while she hadn't specialized in comedies, she had some zingers in her dramas that she delivered with great timing . . . think THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT, TORRID ZONE, CITY FOR CONQUEST. She usually played tough, down-to-earth working class women. Here, she played an arrogant, pampered, totally self-absorbed actress. It's not as if it was inconceivable that she co
  19. The first examples that pop into my head are Henry Fonda in ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and Ann Sheridan in THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER, both great performances in my view.

If a white writer/producer decided to make such a film, the African American community would have labeled it racist, no matter the intent. You know that's the case, that's why it has never been done prior to the two above films. > > I don't agree at all. There was no such outcry that I know of, when Robert Downey Sr. made *Putney Swope*. Other examples off the top of my he

That there are no offensive films, only satires? You can whitewash away drek any way you choose, but you can't whitewash away the stink. These two films stink. Whether you like the films or not is your business, but the original poster accused C.S.A. of being a racist film when it is clearly ridiculing racism.
