  1. too bad UniversalCrapHead. You are going to get more "complaining and whining" as long as TCM keeps on degrading each month. It's a free country. I can say what i want.
  2. you should of titled this thread : films that TCM has yet to show(and likely never will) :^0 Edited by: TCMfan23 on Sep 23, 2012 3:09 PM
  3. The same old same old this year. Less Hammer and even less Universal stuff. No Bride of Frankenstein ??! It's a crime to show Frankenstein and skip to Son of Frankenstein ! no Nosferatu / no Cabinet of Caligari / no Hunchback of Notre Dame with Chaney / and no Dracula with Lugosi. WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY SHOWING ON SILENT SUNDAYS ? Is TCM being denied access to studio vaults? that's what it looks like here. It's like TCM shelves their films for a year and they collect what the studios left them. I see they're going to show the butchered version of Phantom of the Opera for the 1 m
  4. Too many boring stuff on. It's either that or the same old same old. I'm watching other channels (re-runs of Happy Days and The Waltons) or DVDs. 'Lolita' again ? BLAH ! i can't stand James Mason and his obsessive personality.
  5. because it came out in '62. It came out during the 'classic hollywood' era. The last few years before the fall of the code.
  6. check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03ji0-rHBEw
  7. It's a wonderful day today. John Garfield from morning to night. And the sexy Lauren Bacall tonight. So glad TCM is showing 'East of the River' again. My DVR goofed 6 months back. I enjoyed 'Flowing Gold'. First time I seen it. Great movie. If Garfield is in it, you know it's going to be good. If Pat O'brien is in it, it only makes it even better. John Garfield was a heck of an actor. To bad there will be no one like him ever again. He was a one of a kind like the rest of the Golden Age stars.
  8. For years , people have said the 1950s was the 'happy days'. Today , people are saying the 1980s were the 'good 'ol days'. What do you all think ? don't say 2012. from what i'm seeing on the news everyday , it looks like the end of the world is coming. riots / violence / unrest , war, murder , global warming , recession , loss of jobs , etc, etc Too many problems today. was yesterday better than today ?

  9. 2 years ago , I purchased '50 horror classics' from mill creek. The best 20 bucks I spent in my life. I enjoyed all 50 movies. I didn't mind the print quality of most movies. The only one I disliked was the print of 'metropolis'. It look awful. Unwatchable. I don't expect a lot (quality) when it comes to public domain material. It doesn't bother me if the movie shows it's age. Edited by: TCMfan23 on Sep 14, 2012 11:14 PM
  10. I've noticed they're monthly cataogs are getting thinner. They stopped printing pictures in their catalogs that come out every month or 2. I guess to save paper. It must cost a lot to print catalogs and people throw them away. It doesn't matter to me if DVD-r's are used . What is so bad ? I've purchased DVD's from alpha for years. It's the only DVDs I buy. They're silent selection hs grown a lot the past couple years.
  11. TCM's messed up scheduling isn't helping.
  12. FOR ME : it's either Alpha Video or Mill Creek Entertainment. 50 movies for 20 bucks is a good deal.
  13. i'm sick and tired of stuff going wrong. Last week , I sucessfully recorded the movies. Two more pain in the butt weeks to go. TCM's crazy thursday scheduling leaves me to figure out when each shorts ends and begins. Why don't they just say sennett shorts 1916-17 ? why list each short in the schedule ? it messes people up. Next week , I'll probably run out of tape. The week after that , my DVR will either freeze or the power might go out. Who knows. Something bad always has to happen. I have a lot of bad luck. An 8 hour cassette is the only solution. OK , I'll ask again : WHERE
  14. where can I buy last night's Mack Sennett shorts on DVD ? Where can I watch "thirst 1917". My DVR goofed just before the ending. I'm **** off. I hoped nothing would go wrong tonight , but it did. Something always has to go wrong when I record tv programs. My DVR either goofs up and something else happens. WHAT SHOULD OF DID : spend $12 on a 3 pack of 8 hour videos at walgreens and record in my parents' room instead of my room (where I have a DVR). No need to switch videos and no worries about the DVR screwing up. It's been a hard day for me. I hoped for no problems. Right now ,
  15. 3D is nothing new. 3D was around in the 1950s. It's a trend that has come and gone. It was only an idea. What if The Birds was in 3D ? that's all. YOU PEOPLE TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY. All you guys want to do is start fights. I'm sick of you kind of people. It's like this even on YouTube and other internet boards. You can't freakin' talk to people without some kind of disagreement and exchanging insults. Let's not talk about me. Talk about 'The Birds'. If you think it's a bad idea, just say so. No need to turn this thread into another flame war.m I hate modern films. I h
  16. I SEEN A 1995 MOVIE IN THE DECEMBER SCHEDULE ! X-( Too new to be shown on TCM. I also see quite a few 80s movies in in December. TCM Underground is showing 'Night of the Creeps', which is a old favorite. It belongs on the movie channel. Not on TCM. TCM , why do you feel the need to sneak later movies in your monthly schedules ? This channel is suppose to be 100 % classic film (old hollywood). The number of later films (post 1970) is growing graudually on TCM. You all might not notice or care, but I do.
  17. joyrider , TCM is fine how it is now. TCM has no big library. They're only allowed few films from few major studios. It's not TCM's fault they show the same material every two months. Edited by: TCMfan23 on Sep 8, 2012 2:57 PM
  18. BLAH ! i don't care about the whistler and jungle jim. give me bowery boys any saturday.
  19. I agree with you all. More 'what a character' segments.
  20. I enjoyed it. It's one of my favorites TCM shows every once in a while. I like it more than Streetcar Named Desire. I also liked watching East of Eden with James Dean. James Dean is my favorite actor. A few years ago , I seen Rebel without a cause on the big screen at a old movie theatre in town. It was a good experience. No one talked on their phones. Everyone watched the movie. And enjoyed it without texting on their phones and being rude. People of all ages where there watching the movie. Outside the theater , they had a old car show. It was great. After the movie , me and my olde
  21. interesting pictures. thanks for posting them.
  22. TCM needs re-run Bowery Boys and East Side Kids stuff. How about the 'G-men' serial for saturday mornings. I love what TCM is doing tonoight for Underground. Legend of hell house (crap house) and house on haunted hill. I love the original house on haunted hill with vincent price. i grew up watching that movie. it's a favorite of mine. i also like night ofthe living dead , dementia 13 , carnival of souls and little shop of horrors. All of those cheap good 'ol drive-in classics. I like TCM underground when they stick to the old drive-in material. You all know what i'm talking about. I
  23. everything went well. it took a little work. that's all. i cancelled my dvr recordings and used the vcr in case the other vcr ran out of tape. next week , i don't want to even think about it. tcm goofs up their schedule every once in a while when they run marathons. things can get messy when movies run 12 minutes long and no commercial break. i don't really believe it's TCM's fault for the goof up , it's DirecTV's fault. They should've said "mack sennett films part 1 , part2 , etc instead of the title of each short in the guide. i enjoyed 'tillie's punctured romance'. it's a be
  24. Some of the shorts are starting 10 minutes late and 10 minutes early. I hope TCM fixes this problem before 11pm. My 6 hour video tape will run out at 11pm. I have to switch tapes. I'm hoping to record all of 'Tillie's punctured romance'. I should of got myself an 8 hour cassette. My DVR has failed to record the shorts because of the schedule problem. I added 10 minutes extra recording time to each short following "mabel's wedding" or whatever that short is called. X-( Edited by: TCMfan23 on Sep 6, 2012 11:45 PM
