  1. Thanks for the August and September links Kyle. I can't find the links to advance the schedule anywhere on the website. I don't know if it's just my computer or what.
  2. Anita and June were sisters. This was slightly before my time and up in Canada we didn't get those great Country stars on TV but they will live on thanks to You Tube.
  3. Thanks for the link Fred. I'd forgotten how great old-time country was.
  4. What I love about old movies is finding a gem of a song that I've never heard of before. The latest is Jane Frazee singing " A Spot in Arizona". A beautiful song sung simply and have you ever seen someone look so lovely.
  5. My favourite film. I don't know how many times I've seen it but the last few minutes still choke me up everytime. Boyer was within a heartbeat of walking out on the love of his life. Who wouldn't want Irene Dunne! I love a happy ending. Then there's the wonderful scene with Maria Ouspenskaya as the grandmother. I always find it so heartwarming. I like movies that make you feel good.
  6. I can see it when you went to a show. It gave you time to settle in or take a break. When I burn these kinds of movies to a DVD I always pause the recording 'til they're over. I can't sit there in front of the TV waiting for the movie to start again.

    Hal Leroy

    I've seen most of Hal Leroy's shorts on TCM and always wondered why he never really made it in films.
  8. I like most of the ones mentioned. Not sure if anyone has mentioned it but I think Gene Raymond and Ann Sothern went well with each other. It looks like they had fun together.
  9. Esther Williams Being a champion swimmer got her into the movies. But she was so natural and comfortable in front of the camera you couldn't help but like her. Doris Day She was a great singer and also very natural. Her most appealing quality on screen was her eyes, they just shone and sparkled.
  10. It would also be nice to have a weekly timeslot for them on TCM.
  11. You're right. That was a stupid mistake. Hollywood Canteen is one of my favourites. It's always nice to see a picture with lots of stars doing small parts.
  12. Sorry about that. I should have remembered there was a movie by that name. It was supposed to be a fun thread about lovely ladies.
  13. This is probably more for us gents but every once in a while a movie comes along that hits on all cylinders. The lovely lady's makeup, her character and the love story combine to make you fall in love with her. I'm also a sucker for the songs. Two that come to mind are Joan Leslie in Stage Door Canteen and Anna Neagle in Irene. I made it a point to watch their other movies and while I like them they just don't hit the button like those two. The fun part of watching the old Classics is finding gems like that.
  14. CBC was the start of my interest in Classic Movies. Back in the late 80s-90s they showed a lot of the best Warner Bros movies from the 40s.
  15. infinite1: Thanks for posting the Cinema Retro interview with Robert Osborne. This is the Golden Age of TCM with Robert Osborne. It's going to be a sad day when he retires.
