  1. Jeeze, Sally Fields couldn't of looked better. I don't know how she does it but she still is one of the most beautiful women in the movie industry. It's like time stopped for her. She also has that beauty that outlives what most people would call beautiful when all they really mean is glamorous that's been done with smoke and mirrors and a whole lot of lipstick. The movies she picked were great as well and especially Friendly Persuasion is one of my favorites. It also is one of those movies that without profanity, sex or visual violence like on today's movies still beats most new movies I see
  2. I remember seeing Maximum Overdrive when I was pretty young when it had just came out as sort of drive In type material and even though I grew up with Sci Fi flicks like Them or The Creature From The Black Lagoon, etc, etc which definetly weren't no Best Years of Our Lives movie but we were kids and it was usually put on by like in our area in Michigan The Ghoul but Maximum Overdrive was only worthy of drive in's, and still is so what makes it a classic TCM? I frankly don't get the Stephen King phenomena but different strokes I guess aye, but considering Maximum Overdrive as a classic all I c
  3. I grew up in the 60's and 70's with what I still say are the greatest movies I've ever experienced and some of those were already 5 to 25 years old. Some of these movies were so cheesy they were great. There is something about a good old black and white war film or crime drama/film noir or science fiction movie and there's nothing like Technocolor, Kodachrome, Cinecolor, Eastmancolor, or etc, etc, or Cinemascope, Vistavision, etc, etc, which I don't understand why they don't make movies using these processes anymore because it was what gave way to the real movie experience and made that advent
  4. I was wondering if anyone remembers the interview that was done where Robert and I can't remember the other person's name or what he did in the movie business but they were talking about Montgomery Clift and i believe it was a couple other people sitting at a table in the studio delicatessen where he basically flipped out and was under the table eating a butter soaked steak like a dog? I was wondering if anyone remember who that was giving that story of that inccident and if there is anywhere I can view it again? What a tradgedy for any human being to suffer from anything like Montgomery Clift
  5. I'm like Quentin Tarrentino about this hard to catch great old war movie. I think it's a jem that maybe because of the not to well known actors in it and maybe their budget was small it gets passed over more than it should. It's got some of the best action I've ever seen in a war movie and I've seen almost everyone out there, has a great realistic story line/plot, and whatever this movie lacked in budget or high paid actors they sure made up in action, realism and acting. I couldn't tell you how many times I've suggested this movie with no luck, even to go as far as writing several times tryin
  6. What happened to that extensive library TCM? I only watch two channels and TCM is one of them but you putting on movies that are only a few years old of playing the heck out of the same movie when I have suggested a movie for the last 4 years and haven't seen it once but I know you got it cause I seen it on TCM. Come on you guys, get a new programmer or crack the whip. Last week there was a 2009 movie I thought was a porn. What are you guys thinking over there? We like classic movies which in definition at least to the masses means somewhat old as well. By the way that movie I've been waiting
  7. I was surprise this last week to find not only movies made within the last decade but as I turned my T.V. on to TCM as usual I got a shot of a couple doing it in full view. I normally don't complain of such things but on TCM, come on now. The movie first of all was made in 2009,CLASSIC? come on now your slippen TCM. Then to have nudity not in a way to project art or even in a artful manner it was plain two people getting it on, right on my favorite channel which I thought I'd never see a movie in my days as a classic made in the 2000's let alone a nothing better than a porn. I didn't see any p
  8. I have been suggesting a movie for 7 years now and don't know if they had ever played it and maybe I missed it or they hadn't yet played it. Maybe if we get enough votes so if they play our suggestion they will email us a week or so in advance. SO COME ON AND VOTE OR JUST CONTACT TCM AND SUGGEST THAT THEY EMAIL US WHEN THEY GO TO PLAY OUR MOVIES. WE ALSO APPRECIATE ALL THE GREAT OLD MOVIES THAT THEY RUN FOR US.

  9. What happened to the dialogue in this movie. The last couple months I have ran across it and it seems like they dubbed over and it now sounds very strange. What happened to the other versions with the original voice's. It's sounds like the actors but it sounds like they dubbed over it just recently....Does anyone know?
  10. I would like to expand on this even. PLAY MORE WAR MOVIES PERIOD. Movies like Paratroop Command that has a great plot and action and it's been years since I've seen it. Also if you go to wiki and put in world war two movies or any other war movies you get a pretty good list of what hasn't even been played on TCM that I've seen yet. I keep writing to their feedback about designating a time like once a month or even late nights which I believe has got to be more of a male audience during all hours of the night and early morning but yet they play movies which actually I am surprised that they wou
