  1. Please don't screw up a good thing!! laurelnhardy? Where have you been?
  2. You're right, of course, but good luck getting more than one person to agree with you, NylonLisa.
  3. Ummm... I thought we're not supposed to get into politics on here? Has that rule gone away? Yup. You can talk about anything and anybody you want now here. Fascinating, ain't it? Leo, if you're still out there, come back and talk about anything you want. *ANYthing!*
  4. Hey leo, here's a riddle for you: when are political posts allowed on a board that used to pride itself on not allowing political posts?
  5. What does this have to do with movies? Is politics fair game here now?
  6. Hey Vision6800, did you catch Drive A Crooked Road today? As someone on IMDb said, Rooney was without his usual annoying mannerisms. He was actually quite good. The movie wasn't bad, but the best part was the house, 24742 Malibu Rd, Malibu, CA 90265, catch it here: http://tinyurl.com/lfuov92 It hasn't changed a bit! As unassuming as it is, because it's on the beach it's worth $5.5 million. Guess they didn't have stalkers in 1954, they used the real address in the movie.
  7. Vision6800, if you want a break from the ongoing drek on TCM, catch the classically classic movies today, Friday. It's like the good old days, when TCM was great. Enjoy!
  8. Seriously? This was reason for murder and suicide (cool way to go out, though)? *Half-caste* is an archaic term for category of people of mixed race or ethnicity.
  9. When are the invisible page numbers going to be returned to black, so they can be, oh I don't know, *visible?* And what happened to 'preview'?
  10. Wasn't Jeremy Brett lovely in My Fair Lady, an otherwise forgettable movie? But a Rex Harrison day without The Ghost and Mrs. Muir? Puhleeze.
  11. Murder! is certainly interesting. From the inter-cut closeups of bread and cheese and chicken, it looks like Hitch was using the film for supermarket advertising. Judging also by the closeup of the woman putting on her undies at the beginning, it looks like Hitch had unhealthy proclivities very early in his career. No wonder this movie isn't more in rotation. Ah well, he got better.
  12. First, mark, you're right. The new changes are from hunger. I guess they ran out of black ink when it came to the page numbers. If you hover reallllllllllllllllly slowly, you may find page 2 and 3, etc. Oh, and the middle blip before the movie starts - where did it go? The new one? It stinks. On Glenda, right-e-o on all the choices. I am curious that some of these weren't on Saturday with Ben when I thought he showed each and every GF movie, unless I was out doing chores. Looks like Sans and I are the only ones without a DVR. A glued to the set day, like back in the day when TCM wa
  13. *One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.....* Did you know this, from wikipedia? "One" is a song written by Harry Nilsson and made famous by Three Dog Night whose cover in 1969 reached number 5 on the Billboard chart. The song is known for its opening line "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do." It appeared initially on Aerial Ballet, Nilsson's third album. Nilsson wrote the song after calling someone and getting a busy signal. He stayed on the line listening to the "beep, beep, beep, beep..." tone, writing the song. The busy signal became the opening notes of t
  14. The only problem I saw with Hattie's day was the amount of time she had on screen. All told, it probably amounted, in *all* those movies, to 60 minutes, if that much. She outshone so many of the 'stars' in many of the movies, many of which were unwatchable. On Louise, outside of the lovely and beautiful Cary Grant in Mr. Blandings, her line 'if you ain't eatin' Wham, you ain't eatin' ham!' is the best part of the movie.
  15. More photos: http://dailynightly.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/08/10/19950301-long-lost-orson-welles-film-found-in-italy?lite Arlene Francis, Joseph Cotten? Very interesting. Was it Wells who came up with "You doesn't hasta call me Johnson!" No, it was Bill Saluga.
  16. Was part of that trilogy her film about being killed by an African totem figure, the image of which still resides in my mind's eye? She died way too young.
  17. Having seen my first Silent tonight, Wait, what??? Take it from me, and I no longer can tolerate silents, you HAVE to watch ALL of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd's silent pictures! You have to!!! I envy you, seeing them for the first time. They are magnificent.
  18. I don't know what it was, Fred, but I caught a second of him leaning on something (a log?) in one of the pictures (not a silly costume picture) with a woman and you could literally have plucked him out and put him in one of the current romance pictures without missing a beat. I don't impress easily, but I was astonished. Well, I have to thank TCM for this day of silents, even though I didn't watch it. I never paid any attention to Ramon, even though my mother always talked about him (she liked Rudolph too but I dislike him and she LOVED Tyrone Power and I don't like him either and don't g
  19. How nice. The AHA tries its best today to make sure animals aren't killed for no reason, but as has been demonstrated with the television show Luck, they aren't always successful. The go-around the evil media folk utilize today is to film (movies and television) outside of the U.S., since the AHA is powerless to prevent animal cruelty in other countries. Isn't it charming when those with the biggest brain think they can slaughter animals at will and wipe out species just because they can?
  20. gagman66, you can't put any weight into what I say about silents, since I freely admit I am *heavily* biased against them. I happen to loathe Charlie Chaplin, which most here would say is heresy. But remember, we each have our own opinions. I used to *love* watching Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton, brilliant men both, but recent changes in brain chemistry don't allow me to even watch them. Therefore, I never get to hear the scores anymore. I'm sure most are quite nice. P.S. I understand about Leo, I was just joking.
  21. And his killers got off with a slap of the wrist. Did little jail time. I'm sorry to hear that. Sometimes the world doesn't punish those it should. I kept surfing back and forth, and was blown away by what a good actor he was, and how very modern in his good looks. It's too bad he didn't act in anything I like, e.g., a crime film noir, like Victor Mature, who did some STINK-O costume dramas but thrilled me in his film noirs. I would have liked to have gotten to know him in film. Like Dothery, I hope here is another place for him that is affording him peace.
  22. Interesting, must have something to do with the NEW and not IMPROVED colors. I've only noticed the spam in the early hours, never at this time of day.
  23. You hit the nail on the head, Dargo: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/6301-Quebec-Dr-Los-Angeles-CA-90068/20807072_zpid/ h3. Zestimate: $1,471,737 Not always accurate, but usually close. Not sure when Tootsie bought it - or was she just the interior designer? - but the last buyer was in 1996. * *Last Sold:** Aug 1996 for $585,000
