  1. This is a one in a million long shot, but last night did anybody tape Ben's outro to the Led Zeppelin movie The Song Remains The Same? I saw the intro, but the cable went out and it deprived me of seeing the outro. Ive seen the movie before, but wanted so much to hear the closing remarks. Ideally, I'd like to get a copy, which I'd be happy to handsomely compensate for. But even if only someone could possibly remember what he said and give me a brief synopsis of what he talked about, I would be very grateful. 🙏 Thanks so very kindly in advance.
  2. Thanks loads. I'd like to read that other thread too. I will try to find it.
  3. I was hoping that someone could help me. I was a longtime subscriber to the TCM Now Playing magazine, and I subscribed to the new email version last May. But I never received it. And from what I understand, this new email version started last month in August, maybe even July? I subscribed to it again a couple of days ago, but I still have received nothing. This is very frustrating. Can somebody tell me what month the new Now Playing email started? Also, is there any way to get back issues? Would someone forward me a copy of theirs?
  4. I agree with you, Tom. My suggestion to you and to everybody else that would like to see my Barrymore's Star of the Month suggestion come to fruition is to contact Charlie at TCM and let him know how you feel. I can’t give you his private email address, but you could contact him at the main email address of tcm@turner.com and put it to the attention of Charlie Tabesh.
  5. Tom, Charlie Tabesh told me today that they are currently discussing potential stars-of-the-month for 2013 and that my Barrymores suggestion is under consideration. He reiterated that it's definitely a great idea and that even if they didn't do it in 2013, that they will definitely do it at some point.
  6. I posted a question, but in the "General Discussions" category by mistake. Here's a link to it in case anybody didn't see it: http://forums.tcm.com/thread.jspa?threadID=164157&tstart=0
  7. If anybody has a DVR and can go back to 1pm (EDT) today, I was just curious what the little joke was that Ben Mankiewicz told at the beginning of his first movie intro today. I turned the TV on just at the end of the joke. It never fails.
  8. Inspired by his tremendous work ethic, I reminded Robert of something the great stage and screen actress Helen Hayes was famous for saying: "If you rest, you rust."
  9. Finance: My response was a collective one, as there were a total of three more guesses after your Tracy Lords guess: Molly Haskell (by AndyM108), Cari Beauchamp (by Clore) and Drew Barrymore (by both MGMMayer and Yanceycravat). Yancey: Those are six very good reasons to backup the guess that both you and MGMMayer made of Drew Barrymore. As for whether you two guys are actually right or not, all I can say for certain is that time will certainly tell. Hibi: Robert told me that when he goes to Atlanta to tape wrap-arounds and do other production work, he's there for a month at
  10. Dear TCM Friends, In order to keep my promise to Robert Osborne not to divulge it, I will neither confirm nor deny any of the guesses made here of his next co-host for the upcoming 2012 season of The Essentials. Thanks so very much in advance for understanding. *;-)*
  11. While I am not at liberty to divulge the person's name, I'm sure Robert wouldn't mind me divulging just the gender of his new co-host for the upcoming 2012 season of The Essentials (which he begins filming here in New York later this month). It is a *woman* -- and a very exciting one at that!
  12. You're very welcome MovieGal. It was a great pleasure to speak with Robert Osborne the other day and just to let you know, he will actually begin working again in two weeks when he will begin filming the wrap-arounds for the 2012 season of The Essentials. The filming will be done here in New York and after three years with Alec Baldwin, Robert will have a new co-host which I would love to be able to share here, but since it has not been officially announced yet, Robert asked me not to divulge who it is yet. And thanks for the congrats on the Barrymore's Star of the Month suggestion; it loo
  13. Without divulging the details of how it came about, I spoke to Robert Osborne earlier today and he is doing quite well, sounding great and thoroughly enjoying his vacation. I just wanted to mention that one of the things that I asked him is if he will continue doing the full wrap-arounds (intros and outros) for the films when he returns to TCM later this fall, and he assured me that he absolutely will! The 'intros only' format that TCM is currently practicing with the guest hosts is only temporary until he returns. So no worries; we will get Robert back *100%* when he returns! Oh, and Robert t

  15. Thanks again, lzcutter; I'll send Renee a message to find out what that save option is all about.
  16. Robertlcne, The role of Clara (Marty's girlfriend) in the film Marty (1955) was indeed played by Gene Kelly's wife, actress Betsy Blair. Welcome to the TCM message board!
  17. Thanks lzcutter! By the way, do you know what the "save" option is all about in the area where it shows what threads you are watching?
  18. Excellent Kyle, and thanks. I was able to go back and re-save the TCM monthly schedules from July. Apparently, TCM keeps the three prior months available for viewing. Oh, and I have another question for you or anybody who can answer it. Does TCM delete old threads on the board at a certain point or are they always available for viewing? If they do eventually delete them, can I archive them or save them somehow? Thanks so much in advance! **Update: I just noticed the "save" option in the area where it shows what threads you are watching. Is that how you can permanently save threads
  19. Thanks Kyle! By the way, where did you get that link for last month's September schedule? The reason I ask is because every month I copy-paste the TCM monthly schedule and save it as a word file on my computer (I do this because the TCM Now Playing guide doesn't show shorts). But here's my problem: the September monthly schedule that I saved from the TCM website on September 5th *does* *not* list many of the shorts that are shown in the September monthly schedule that you provided a link for. This leads me to believe that TCM is constantly updating the monthly schedule throughout t
  20. Thanks for your help, Bette. What was the short at 8:36am? It didn't show on your post. *?????* (1934) 8:36am Towed in a Hole (1932) 10:15am Jammin' the Blues (1944) 3:00pm Governor C.C. Young Hails Greater Talkie Season (1928) 6:20pm
  21. Swithinn: The main thrust of my post was not to get into a debate about silent films vs. talkies, but rather to make the point that the Barrymore's full potential as great actors could not be realized in the silent era because of the exclusion of sound. As TomJH said so aptly in his post, the Barrymore's were 'handcuffed" in the silents. That was a marvelous way of putting it, because they absolutely were. But notwithstanding, that doesn't in any way diminish the fine work they did in silent films, it's just that the silent films limited the full potential they could deliver as great actor
  22. In my earlier post where I gave my outline of how I would program the Barrymore's Star of the Month festival, if you notice, I said for the evening hours. For the late night, early morning and daytime hours, there's plenty of time to air some of the Barrymore's silent films. But none of these silent features should ever displace their classic talking pictures in the prime time evening hours. And the reason is simple: one of the things that made the fabulous Barrymores great *screen* actors is that they were also great *stage* actors -- all three. And while they were as great in silent films as
  23. Musicalnovelty: Yes, I too hope Charlie includes Night Flight in the festival. TomJH: If I can suggest just one Ethel Barrymore film for you to see, The Spiral Staircase (1945), I think you will change your mind about her. He performance was stunning -- classic Ethel Barrymore, and it's one of the four performances that she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She actually won the award the year before for another great film, None but the Lonely Heart (1944). As for Jack Barrymore's film, The Show of Shows (1929), I can certainly mention that to Charlie
  24. To All: My previous message that I had filed got butchered after I posted it; probably because I copy-pasted a large animated gif file as well as Charlie Tabesh's message directly from the email that I received from him today. It took me almost half an hour, but I finally got it fixed. The only thing that I wasn't able to do was include the 'Happy Day' animated gif that I had originally pasted at the top of my message. But to keep in the glorious spirit of the good news of my previous post, I am including it here! Capuchin: That listing that you mentioned in your post isn't list
