  1. The handsome actor, Stephen Boyd suffered the fate of so many great and underrated actors of the Golden Age. After triumphing in a blcokbuster film. Including the classic, Oscar winning, Biblical epic, Ben hur. Boyd should have won an Oscar for his riveting performance as the merciless Masala. He never achieved another memorable performance as expressed in Ben Hur but was quite an impressive actor in others, Including Bravados, Woman Obsessed, Jumbo, The Man Who Never Was, Fantastic Voyage, Island in the Sun and Ghengis Khan. Would very much like to see a TCM film tribute devoted in his h
  2. John Hall. Remember him from the classic film, The Hurricane.
  3. I am requesting a Summer Under the Stars tribute to handsome actor, Richard Egan.
  4. The Oscars are done. As are most televised awards show. Politics have ruined these once genuine and viewable awards show. Which have become nothing but left wing propaganda platforms. This year's Oscars will begin a whole new criteria centered upon identity politics and so few areas rewarding true artistic merit. I stopped watching years ago. Sadly this event will also die a slow painful death!
  5. This was a beautiful remake of the classic story in technicolor of the disfigured musician. Who haunted the French Opera and its lead soprano. Strring Claude Rains and phenomenal alto Nelson Eddy.
  6. Please devote a tribute to handsome actor Stephen Boyd. Wonderful and dashing actor who starred in The Robe, The Fall of The Roman Empire, Island In The Sun, The Bible and Voyage to Fantastic Voyage. Were just some of this talented but sadly underrated actor's memorable fims.
  7. Oh thanks. Still would love to see a star of the month in his honor.
  8. Would love to see the films on this handsome and underrated actor.
  9. A continuing TCM look at the silver screens', legendary red-head starlets. A month long film battle amongst the most notable red-heads; Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball, Greer Garson, Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Moira Shearer, Mitzi Gaynor, Shirley McLaine, Susan Hayward, Maureen O'Hara, Deborah kerr, Judy Garland, Debra Paget, Arlene Dahl, Janet Gaynor, Clara Bow, Rhonda Fleming, Elsa Lanchester, Ann Margret.
  10. I would love to see a month long salute to some of the most legendary and beautiful brunettes of the golden age. All throughout history, brunettes were always deemed as "The Vixen", or relegated to take a backseat to their f lesser talented, but often times overrated "Blonde" constituents. Let's see a TCM battle, of some of the silver screen's most notable brunettes, Elizabeth Taylor, Hedy Lamarr, Vivien Leigh, Ava Gardner, Rosalind Russell, Kay Francis, Joan Crawford, Merle Oberon, Loretta Young, Mryna Loy, Dorothy Lamour, Linda Darnell, Ann Dvorak, Audrey Hepburn, Norma Shearer,
  11. I'm through venting, and complaining about this latest theme, within the the Race In Hollywood series. I shared my views with others, and attested that this particular theme, centering on Arab stereotypes in Hollywood films, was purely political, and not thought out well, as earlier ethnic groups. Maybe I would continue to stick around, and watch the rest of the series, if I felt that there was something that I wasn't familiar with, as far as Arab culture is concerned. But what exactly is the viewer suppose to walk away with? That what, Arabs along with other ethnic groups, were unf
  12. I wont be tuning into anymore of the films for this series on Arab images in film. I guess i'll be tagged as "closed-minded". The stereotyping of any group in classic films were simply reinforced to no doubt, demean the entire race of people. However, I still feel that TCM made a complete misstep in chosing to highlight Arabs in classic films. Unlike Blacks, and possibly Native-Americans, Arabs were not a specifically targeted as some kind of "threat" during this era. These films were a product of the era, and Dr. Shaheen is glossing over the present dangers in which Islam poses on
  13. I have to be honest with you, I was a little puzzled as to why TCM chose to highlight Arabs in American films, this entire month. It seemed as though, that this was yet another politically-correct attempt, to somehow, "soften" the image of Arabs (muslims) in the minds of most Americans, since 911. I was not particularly fond of many of the film selections as well. I could fully understand the difficulty, that many individuals, from various ethnic groups feel, when watching their race, preferably, in a classic films, being grossly stereotyped. However, the entire Arab culture i
  14. Hello, is somebody asleep at the wheel? What happened to the classic Popeye short, which Dr. Jack inluded after the film? Robert Osborne announced that this classic 17min short was going to air, right after the film, however, a commercial announcement for the July schedule, appeared immediately. I remembered this 1937, colored short, "Popeye Meets Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", and it was quite befitting of Dr. Jack, to suggest it, while directing our attention Arab stereotypes, in classic films.
