  1. If only you were there Lorna to rescue Ted. Let's face it Nancy was using her whip more than Indiana Jones.
  2. It's a good thing we have Geraldine Chaplin to care about.
  3. Can anybody tell me why Laura's mother tried to commit suicide? Didn't she push Laura into Rod's arms?
  4. If only every commie had a Melvyn Douglas to make them laugh.
  5. Here's another question, did Alec Guiness really have to play a teenager?
  6. If only the Sandman didn't visit 97.3% of the population when Zhivago plays.
  7. Peter O'Toole as Laura is thinking: how am I going to win best actress when Rod Steiger is stealing my thunder?
  8. Here's a theory, Julie Christie and Peter O'Toole look like they could be siblings (In my opinion). What if O'Toole told Lean he wouldn't play Zhivago, but he would play Laura. Add a wig and make everyone else where lifts in their shoes and the world would never know.
  9. Speaking of anachronisms, anyone else notice the hair? Then again beehives might have been all the rage during the revolution.
  10. I think it's safe to say that the most agree that the music, backgrounds, and cinematography are brilliant. It just seems that the characters and plot ruin the movie. I agree that the characters running around are hard to like, but come to think of it most of Lean's characters are very flawed. Do you think people dislike Zhivago's characters more than Lean's others? If so why?
  11. I think that one reason Zhivago is not as well liked as other Lean pictures is that the movie seems to come off smug. It just seems to have an overblown feel to it, almost as if you should like it because it is a David Lean picture. But to me the only characters that were cared for were Tonya and Pasha (even though he was a commie). To bad they didn't end up together. I still think Pasha could have lived if he had ran away, he must have been in shape from all that lonely long distance running. As someone said there is nothing wrong with loving Zhivago, after all I watch That Hagen Girl fo
  12. A good point made was there was no chemistry between Shariff and Christie. The movie is billed as an epic love story, spanning years and frostbite. Why? Why do Zhivgo and Laura like each other more importantly, why do we like them? Although I must say the music is magical.
  13. What's odd to me is that in an interview with the main cast, they all agreed that many people had told them how great Dr. Zhivago was. They said the film had impacted their lives, all two of them.
  14. It seems to me that when people bring up their least favorite movie Dr. Zhivago always comes up. So I figured we should Discover why we dislike it so much. Please tell me I'm not alone in wishing David Lean had stuck to warm places.
  15. I don't care who you are, anyone who sits through and enjoys Dr. Zhivago needs to pull a Tonya and leave the country.
  16. You are lucky EugeniaH, Theodora Goes Wild and His Girl Friday would be very good films to see on the big screen. Thinking more about what I asked you guys, I'd have to say that there are some films that I think have to be put on the big screen. I was thinking about Lawrence of Arabia and Ben-Hur. The epics would feel different I think compared to a movie house rather than an ipad.
  17. Hello all, I know that TCM presents classic films in large theaters across the country, but what films would you love to see in an actual theater? I was recently thinking about what it would be like to watch the Big Country or Libeled Lady on the big screen, as when you're in a movie theater all of your attention is focused on the movie. Also do you think watching a movie in a theater effects the movie in your opinion?
  18. 1. Dana Andrews 2. Gene Tierney 3. Robert Walker 4. Gail Russell 5. Basil Rathbone 6. Greer Garson 7. Joel Mcrea 8. Jean Simmons 9. Superman 10. Ruth Hussey 11. Tyrone Power 12. Jennifer Jones 13. CharLton Heston 14. Angela Lansbury 15. Albert Finney 16. Frances Farmer 17. Linda Darnell 18. Ronald Coleman 19. Sean Connery 20. Joan Fontaine 21. James Bond 22. William Powell 23. Ann Southern 24. Sandra Dee 25. Randolph Scott 26. Irene Dunne 27. Gail Patrick 28. Peter Falk 29. Leslie Neilson 30. John Saxon 31. Bobby Darin
  19. I'm with you Tikisoo, I dom't like raunchy movies, which is why I became more interested in classic films. I am surprised no one has mentioned Rebel without a Cause. (If someone has I apologize). Most people say it just captures pure teen angst and is so true. But to those people I say meh. It's good but it's a lot more dramatic then high school with more good looking people.
  20. Isn't American Graffiti just one of those very honest movies? I think it really captures the feeling of wanting to get out of high school, but at the same time wanting to stay. The characters are very real and the end of the movie is very realistic in showing that not all of the boys got a happy ending. I've never seen the sequal, is it worth it?
  21. Hello all, in another post people were talking about how great Gidget was. This got me thinking that even though most teenage movies are horrible there are some that are quite good. Are there any "teen" movies that you think are outstanding, have a good story, or are just plain entertaining? Were there any movies you watched as a teenager that you thought were accurate? I'm just curious as I was not around when the teen movies of the fifties and sixties came out. Although I must say that to me American Graffiti and The Reluctant Debutante are the best teen movies. You have one that just
  22. This might not be relevant, but Gracie Allen said that she was tired of actors not taking the time to do simple things on screen and that it was obvious. So she made sure that whatever little task she did she actually did it. If you watch the Burns and Allen show you will see her actually cooking for instance.
  23. For me it is not a live movie but an animated one, Disney's Cinderella. It is all magical but the scene of the couple dancing is beautiful.
  24. DANA ANDREWS! DANA ANDREWS! He is so underrated when compared to his contmporaries. ROBERT WALKER! In my opinion one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood. JUDITH ANDERSON, from the suffering matriarch to the creepy housekeeper she could do it all.
  25. ThAt Hagen Girl. Yes nothing really does what you think but there are worse ways to spend your time.
