  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Well, Lori Ann, were you able to watch the movie again? Do you still have questions?
  4. 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.
  5. Under the picture of the movie, there are buttons for various topics relating to the movie. Click on SYNOPSIS for an expanded plot description.
  6. 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.
  7. Thank you for confirming my speculation! So the fiber in fiberglass can be either glass fibers (or cloth), or polyester.
  8. The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) prompted me to think about this. I don't generally like romance movies. I find them more formulaic even than horror movies. There are some I like. But look at 'em: Random Harvest (1942). One Way Passage (1932). Love Affair (1932). Hide-Out (1934). In the first, an amnesiac war residue is rescued by a showgirl from vagueness, who he marries, and on a business trip gets knocked out of amnesia, and forgetting his amnesiac life, and wife, assumes his original position as a patrician captain of industry and then member of Parliament, and who's per
  9. Isn't fibreglass a resin impregnated fabric? Can't you resin-impregnate polyester?
  10. IMDB is very good for music credits, but not always. I don't know if the information is ever incorrect, but it is sometimes incomplete. A famous instance from Informaton Please! is from Sleuth (1972). Someone was looking for the singer on the tune "Anything Goes," which had no credit in the IMDB soundtracks section.
  11. Aside from the leads, there's: Leonard Nimoy: Dub Taylor: Fess Parker: Owlin Howland: Willis Bouchey: Harry Wilson:
  12. A Place of One's Own (1945). James Mason, Margaret Lockwood: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037179/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_125
  13. I could offer you my take, but maybe it would be best to see the movie again first.
  14. I hear authorities in prisons are using the threat of forcing convicts to watch the entire work as a means of enforcing order. Prisoner advocates are suing, claiming it as cruel and unusual.
  15. Looks like you're stuck in a hell loop of your own.
  16. IMDB doesn't list any movies they both appeared in. Miss Fleming did guest on his TV show, McMillan and Wife: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0645125/?ref_=adv_li_tt
  17. The month schedules are still 3 hours off!
  18. and Jack Cardiff knew how to take her picture. I don't dwell on actresses' beauty--often. I pay attention to, well, their acting. But sometimes I'm knocked over and hopelessly in love, and all I want to do is look at them and adore them. I'm like that with Maureen O'Sullivan, and Constance Bennett, and--oh well. . . .
  19. Thanks, Dargo, for the info. Wonder why it hadn't occurred to me to lookit up miself. Now if I can only get someone to wash my car for me. . . . Now it occurs to me to wonder why I haven't seen any but this movie with the FN logo zooming at me. What other movies I wonder have it?
