  1. All you should have to do is copy the address of the video in the top bar of the browser window and paste it in the text of the post. It will automatically show up as a link that you see in other posts.
  2. Great cover by a great performer. Can't remember what movie it was in. . . .
  3. Not to distract people from their favored pursuits. . . The Aftermath 1982. Steve Barkett, Lynne Marguiles. An astronaut battles mutant cannibals after returning from space to find earth ravaged by nuclear and biological war. 2001. Keira Knightley, Ned Wills. Post World War II, a British colonel and his wife are assigned to live in Hamburg during the post-war reconstruction, but tensions arise with the German who previously owned the house. Oh, gosh. I just realized they're both post-war movies. Damn.
  4. Atlantic City 1944. Louis Armstrong, Paul Whiteman, Dorothy Dandrige, Belle Baker. Vaudeville acts are re-created in the story of how Atlantic City became a famous resort. 1980. Burt Lancaster, Susan Sarandon. In a corrupt city, a small-time gangster and the estranged wife of a pot dealer find themselves thrown together in an escapade of love, money, drugs and danger.
  5. Guess it destroyed the whole idea of the movie, then.
  6. Two where a wounded rogue is taken in by credulous family. Romance ensues. Hide-Out (1934). Robert Montgomery, Maureen O'Sullivan. A gangster's playboy flunky flees the Big City after being shot by police and finds refuge in a rural farmer's house. His pretty teacher daughter nurses him. Romance ensues. Distinguished only by the banter between the two principles, the rest of the movie is inoffensive, even the presence of a young Mickey Rooney. Angel and the Badman (1947). John Wayne, Gail Russell. A wounded rustler and all-purpose badman falls in with a Quaker family. Their
  7. Nice, but what movie was it in?
  8. Select the type you want to change the size of. On the top line of the box you type posts, at the right, there is a "Size" button. Click, and a drop down menu showing type sizes will appear. Choose your size. Other options on the line include bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, and color.
  9. Red Herring Alert I know. But if someone has the character to correct their spelling mistake, I feel they are entitled to the information to follow through on their effort.
  10. You can edit the title to correct the spelling.
  11. Duffy (1968). James Coburn, Susannah York, James Mason, James Fox, John Alderton. Stefane, lady friend and brother hatch a plan to rob their rich father of several million pounds being transported on his yacht in the Med. They travel from London to Tangiers to recruit Duffy, a weathered smuggler and con-artist. Lots of fun. Lots of things to like, including Mr. Coburn at his coolest, Miss York at her slinkiest and sylphiest, the wildest house ever in a movie, super score by Ernie Freeman, and a killer song sung by Lou Rawls: Don't know why it's not a standard.
  12. The point being that even with the same source, the two movies still couldn't be more different. Besides, if I can't violate the theme of my own thread, what's the use of starting one?
  13. Casino Royale 1967. Peter Sellers, David Niven, Ursula Andress, Deborah Kerr, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, and--oh, others. James Bond saves the world--but not himself. 2006. Daniel Craig, Eva Green. James Bond saves the world--but not Vesper.
  14. Two good ones. The first with Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Joan Blondell. The second with William Boyd and Ginger Rogers. Sporting Blood (1931). Madge Evans, Clark Gable. The saga of thoroughbred Tommy Boy, born in a rain puddle, and his various owners as he evolves into a a champion stakes horse.
  15. Certainty 2011. Robert Arensen, Jo Armeniox. In the big city a loving young couple Deb and Dom planning to get ready to marry seek guidance from the Catholic Church, which only brings out the true life problems they may encounter with each other and their friends. 2013. Dean Mauro, Lou Fossessca. Ralph Edwards has been offered a second chance by crime boss Mr. Luchino, a game of chess to wipe out his debt. What he doesn't know, and what he could never imagine is how much is really at stake. Benefit of the Doubt 1984. Paul Antony-Barber, Hetty Baynes. An inexper
  16. It's been shown a couple of times, though not recently. A movie with a similar invasion theme, combining both humor, intrigue, suspense and action is I See a Dark Stranger (1946), starring Deborah Kerr and Trevor Howard.
  17. Just too cute! You can catch one in: Where the Boys Are (1960) Performance (1970) Le Petite Soldat (1963) Le Fille Coupé en Deux (2007)--Yikes! The Collector (1965) Coogan's Run (1995)
  18. This is usually the result of where you get your tv signal from. Past reports of aspect ratio discrepancies on one source have not been duplicated on others. It is an effect of how the settings you have for your TV source interact with the movie as it comes from TCM.
  19. NIghtmare 1942. Diana Barrymore, Brian Donlevy. An ex-gambler helps a beautiful widow, and becomes involved with a murder, secret agents, and saboteurs. 2005. Nicole Roderick, Jonatha Bates. A director is forced to make a movie chronicling the horrific murders he believes he is committing.
  20. Clash By Night 1962. Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan. A woman embittered by failed affairs returns home for a new start, but only finds more of the same. 1964. Terrence Longdon, Jennifer Jayne.
