  1. THE TITLE READS "I AM TIRED OF THE RACIST SHOWS' ..... IT DOES NOT SAY STOP!!!!! SHOWING THEM NOR HAVE I ..... NOR DOES IT IMPLY TCM HAS OR IS DOING SOMETHING WRONG BY SHOWING ANY MOVIE. YET HOW MANY PEOPLE TURNED THIS INTO SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT SAID OR IMPLIED? I AM NOT GOING TO ASSUME ANY THING ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT WHAT WAS WRITTEN . PERHAPS WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SAID WAS ' I AM TIRED OF RACIST SHOWS WITH BLACK FACE AS HUMOR, JMO (OR JUST MY OPINION) AGAIN, THE TITLE DOES NOT SAY A WORD ABOUT OTHERS.IT IS ODD HOW IT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED, RATHER LIKE CHILDREN AND THAT LEAVE
  2. LOL This is entertainment , you just care what I think to much..... go on with your life ; as I have said watch and enjoy what you want, it is only a reflection of who you are, who you are and what you believe means absolutely nothing to me. I am the only person who has not attacked another,or tried to provoke another. I have been nothing but cordial and explained a question directed at me.
  3. lol I do not know, I know out west here, the Hispanic people do not like to see a sitting hombre taking a nap , it is called 'being lazy' so I am told....... Now back to blackface, as some other people I have a mixture of friends and yes, you guessed, some are Black, Mexican, Causation and so on (the list could go on forever) I happened to mention I was watching a Judy Garland Marathon type and a friend looked at me and said "I hope it is not that blackface Judy Garland dancing" in which I replied No I am not watching it, now she had no problem that it was on but she could not believe he
  4. My last thought for now is joe? I could not agree more and as I said I do cringe for a moment, but I will not stop watching something like State Fair Does that make me a bad person? I do not know, I do know I have to draw the line someplace. That's me. I am not directing this next paragraph to anyone in particular. I do notice that the longer studios let Blackface exist , that being a society that was still segregated and laughed at such a thing, does not make it right then but especially now. Judy Garland owes many many people of color the money that goes to her family. TCM has an obliga
  5. As the original poster, I do not have a clue as to what you are speaking about? All my post, as there are very few; are about Musicals and thanking TCM for showing more Musicals than years before, the many additions that have been made in the last five years , is so positive. Yes I am happy that war movies are not being shown all day, that is the one problem I had with this channel many years ago, we have Springbreak now, Birthdays, and as most people know Labor Day is for men and women who work albeit any job, and Memorial Day of course the day we honor those who fought.....The celebrations j
  6. As a Native American, the only thing you can do at the 'red 'paint' is laugh, maybe I am wrong but really? It looks so silly. I am not going to bother to reply to each , let me say, I did choose not to watch "Babes" or all Hands on Deck, all Hands on Deck is just a terrible movie to me, terrible acting and slapstick at it's worst.However, that is my opinion......and I did choose not to watch 'Babes" too much Rooney, and as I said I just do not care for him, especially if he is in the lead. I did not mean to bring out such 'mean-ness' and it sounds like I did. Maybe it was the way I wrot
  7. First we had 'All Hands on Deck' ...... with Buddy Hackett entertaining everyone with his Native American (screenplay) get up. During Judy Garlands Tribute we had to watch Babes in Arms with its "honoring" of black-face..... when was black-face something we should enjoy or worse yet HONOR? She did many movies to pick this one out with the overacting Mickey Rooney was to me a mistake. And yes, I do believe Rooney was and will always be one of the worst actors of all time; not because of Babes; but because he over-acted, it is a wonder his head did not shake off at times, worse yet he has
  8. In 2009 people asked for Vera-Ellen to be Star of the Month, was she I do not remember seeing this happen, I am not sure. I do know that she was a wonderful underrated dancer, actress. She was hardly given a line or two to speak, yet in White Christmas her dancing and acting blew me away.To always be used as a prop must be sad. This is a good time for me to say or mention some trivia.... June Allyson and Judy Garland were both favorites of mine. June Allyson was also somewhat underrated. But when I found out that both were first choices for Royal Wedding I had to sit down, how could either do
  9. I was looking ahead on the calender and noticed that July 1 st is a day filled with a range of musicals. I looked at all the ( mostly early morning ) treats. I am in pacific time but not a big problem.Anyway I was caught in thought and finally realized that Most Beautiful Musical Moments to me cannot be defined , actually it was a broad range of years that the Musical was here, yes it changed but it never left. It spanned a good twenty years or a bit more, to me they all represent beauty because in song you always bring sadness or joy , love or harm from it. It tells its own story within
  10. I come again to thank those who are saying Happy Birthday to all the Legends .Sunday is Judy Garlands Day ; what a feast for myself, although I have most of the movies it is so refreshing to hear the host , usually Robert Osborne tell us more trivia or remind us of what has been forgotten. I absolutely loved a comment or 'no comment' he made as on my TV Guide it said "State Fair" with Pat Boone was to be on, instead it was a Navy comedy? I am embarrassed to have forgotten the name It had many unbelievable things going on but the one that stood out was Buddy Hackett acting in all sincerity
  11. OKLAHOMA! of course and just about every song in the show, those voices!! And keeping it simple and sweet.......Silvermoon
  12. I guess no one agrees but I care not, so happy not to watch the same shows over and over again; > {quote:title=pamala wrote:}{quote}:x And I will stand by that or this statement , It seemed that everytime I went to TCM a war movie was on, John Wayne .....or Bora Bora Bora. And so on... I did complain a few years ago and I am glad I did, I am not taking any credit for anything but I am so glad to see TCM so very "rounded" out! > > Now we have Spring Break!! I had not seen any of those movies in years, Judy Garland Musicals , Betty Garrett , Doris Day just singing away, Anchors Awe

Doris Day what a great tribute and I have to say the changes that are being made have kept my TV on TCM... The Birth
