  1. This is a tough one. Rest peacefully, Ms. Temple.
  2. It's interesting to read that Clooney was inspired by The Great Escape and/or Kelly's Heroes. To me, it begs the question of whether he's ever seen "The Train." I have read where an actor or actress will not see an original film if they are remaking it. I wonder if directors feel the same way. Edited by: 47songs on Feb 10, 2014 7:06 PM
  3. "With the cunning of sabotage and the soot of the train yard, "The Train" makes a more superior and grittier film." Read more: http://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/movie-reviews/well-meaning-monuments-men-weighed-down-1.1674106#ixzz2sfbwGJ9U THAT'S what I wanted to read! Thank you for all the links! I'd recently read a review that said The Monuments Men was the first artistic revelation of this piece of history. I corrected the author by mentioning "The Train." Still, I'm anxious to see Monuments Men to compare them myself. Edited by: 47songs on Feb 7, 2014 3:48 PM
  4. A couple of months ago I read a news article about some recovered artwork, originally stolen in Europe by the Nazi's during WWII. Now, this film comes out and details one of the stories about some of the people responsible for recovering some of this artwork. Reading about both the article and some reviews of the film, has reminded me of a film I saw on TCM starring Burt Lancaster called, "The Train." Great movie. Interesting back story of changing directors because Burt wanted more action in the film rather than focusing on artistry because he needed more of a guarantee of a successful fi
  5. I've never really followed her music closely. I love the simplicity of I Will Always Love You.
  6. I remember it playing in the background with Dolly singing it in the Bodyguard, too. I'd never heard about Elvis being in line to sing it. The song must be a lot older than I ever realised.
  7. I'm not always up on movie trivia like I'm sure many here at TCM message boards are, but something I just noticed watching this movie that I hadn't noticed or heard about before: The Dolly Parton song, "I Will Always Love You," made famous by Whitney Houston plays in the background in a bar where Ellen is picked up by Harvey Keitel. First time I ever heard the song was in "The Bodyguard." Hearing it played in the background here is kind of a hoot!
  8. JAWS was the first film to ever make me leap out of my seat, along with every other person in the theater.
  9. Definitely "A Hard Day's Night," and "Help." And every song in each.
  10. Pretty impressive! If not very realistic. It was still suspenseful.
  11. Watching right now. And I have seen it! Just didn't remember the title. Getting old here! :-) And it is totally different. I remember the Laughton one seemed veddy British and didn't seem to have very sophisticated cameras. Edited by: 47songs on Jul 8, 2012 10:59 PM Okay, I just checked and it was released in 1931, so the cameras are definately understandable. Edited by: 47songs on Jul 8, 2012 11:03 PM
  12. Ah, yes! Okay, thanks. So, it's completely different than the Steel Trap? I just read a brief sinopsis and it reminded of the older film.
  13. I don't think I've seen this film. I'll watch it tonight out of curiosity and because Joseph Cotton is in it. Question: Is this a remake? I recall this past year seeing a film on TCM that starred Charles Laughton as a bank employee who embezzles a large amount of money and then, after fear sinks in, tries to figure out a way of returning it. Maureen O'Sullivan played his daughter. It was suspenseful but it seemed more of a character piece about a man with a guilty conscience. Cannot remember the name of it, but does anyone know the movie I'm referring to? Thanks, Donna
  14. Not sure if it would be your cup of tea, but if you get the chance, see it. No, it's not a great movie, but it has a certain charm about it. It was directed by Ida Lapino. A girlfriend of mine and I quote some of the lines in the movie that we just adore. She had a mug made for me as a gift and had some of those lines written on it. The two girls who know how to get into more trouble than any two girls in an all girl catholic school can, seem to always have a new "*scathingly brilliant idea!*" Just a lot of fun.
  15. It was on today, and I agree. It wasn't much of a song. This one was filmed during the 60's and it had that cheap almost campy kind of look about it. The best thing about the second movie was, I mean besides Roz Russell, that the character Marvel Ann, and the actress who played her was back in it. And also Mary Wickes.
  16. Okay, thanks! Yes, to me the first one was far superior.
  17. Wasn't her brother Doris Day's second husband? He was a musician and if I recall he was abusive to Doris. Sounds like he was troubled. I wonder if he and Virginia were close? My favorite appearance of Virginia's was in The Philidelphia Story.
  18. I've seen this movie several times on TCM. However, I don't consider it as likable as the original Trouble With Angels, which I never see on TCM. Is it me? Am I just missing it in the way of timing? I mean, I own the original in DVD form, so I can put it on anytime. But I like seeing my favorites played on the station knowing that others are watching it with me. So, is it me? Edited by: 47songs on Apr 22, 2012 3:26 PM
  19. Saw this last night after Night of the Hunter. What a thrill to hear her voice after all these years.
