  1. If you go to the movie's TCM Database page, you will see a subheading under the picture. One of them will be Articles & Reviews. It may not be as extensive as on the old pages, I can't say, but it's something. Here's an example from tonight's lineup: https://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/73717/duck-soup#articles-reviews
  2. No need. Happy to oblige. The Austin Healey makes surprisingly few appearances. If you remember Patrick McGoohan's TV series Danger Man (one of TV's answers to James Bond), you'll find a couple of appearances. And in Steve Martin's reprisal of Father of the Bride (1991). The MGA (twin cam used in Antiques Road Trip) also surprisingly shows up only in a handful of assorted European movies too obscure to mention individually. I give only the IMCDB page: https://www.imcdb.org/vehicles.php?make=MG&model=A+Twin+Cam&modelMatch=1&modelInclModel=on
  3. The Antiques Road Trip has started a new season. At least on YouTube. It shows the effect of the Corona Age. No longer do the two contesting antiques experts shake hands with shop proprietors on meeting them or concluding a sale. Everyone keeps a safe distance. Auctions are all on line or by phone, which is a drawback. You loose the ambience of a roomful of people and the antiques experts efforts to massage the crowd, a big part of the show's fun. Bidding for objects feels mechanical, despite the efforts of the contenders to pep it up following the auction on personal tablets. Lost als
  4. It refers to the person who violates Vincent Gowrie's grave. Supposedly it refers to Chick Mallison, who intrudes in the dust (the repository of the mortal remains), although as it turns out, he does not really, as Vincent's body is no longer in the grave. Crawford Gowrie, is the real violator, removing the body of the brother he murdered from his grave to hide his guilt.
  5. What's that bulge in your cheek? I know you don't chew tobacco. I know, it's your tongue.
  6. Just want to bring people's attention to the upcoming airing of Intruder in the Dust (1949). Thursday 10:45 pm. Pacific.
  7. Anyone have a favorite movie Fiat?
  8. I find if I reduce the size of the window, the pics drop out.

  10. Hey! don't crash out so quick! I'm always interested in what people get jazzed about in movies. They are an endless source of fascination, and other people's enthusiasm contributes to mine. I'll also turn you on to a valuable website. It's the Internet Movie Car Database, or IMCDB.org. It has for all but the most obscure movies, exhaustive identifications of all moving vehicles (except trains and planes, I think). That's what I rely on when I'm watching a movie and something rolls across the screen and I say: Hey! that's a nice car! Next time that happens to you, post it. I'd lik
  11. The Lady Vanishes (1938), with a super cast--Margaret Lockwood, Michael Redgrave, Dame May Witty, Paul Lukas--is one of Hitchcock's most entertaining movies. I highly recommend it. It starts out clunkily with an opening sequence that has attempts at humor that cross into the annoying, but once on the train, well, it moves forward at a fast clip. Vertigo (1958) is not at all a typical Hitchcock movie. In fact, it is an exact mirror of one. There is no McGuffin, no falsely accused protagonist. The movie is character driven, not plot driven. While character study plays a role in other
  12. Well, Lori Ann, were you able to watch the movie again? Do you still have questions?
  13. Below is a screenshot of the TCM database page for The Greatest Show on Earth (1952): You will see under the picture the various links to different parts of the database page for the movie. One of them is SYNOPSIS. Click on it and you will get an exhaustive description of the plot.
  14. Under the picture of the movie, there are buttons for various topics relating to the movie. Click on SYNOPSIS for an expanded plot description.
  15. In the upper right hand corner of the TCM.com homepage, there is a magnifying glass. Clicking on it will open a search bar. You can then type in the movie title, or the name of a person. It will present a menu of options to click on. Choose the one that is your movie, or person, and it will take you to the TCMdatabase page for it/them.
  16. Thank you for confirming my speculation! So the fiber in fiberglass can be either glass fibers (or cloth), or polyester.
