  1. Another slightly less obvious choice, if we're thinking about performers best known for their work in the horror genre, would be Fay Wray Among her most notable entries in the genre: King Kong ('33), The Most Dangerous Game ('32), Mystery of the Wax Museum ('33), The Vampire Bat ('33), and Doctor X ('32).
  2. To echo briefly what Miss Wonderly posted earlier this evening, I find it annoying not only when more obscure films like tonight's Rene Clair tribute are not shown in Canada. For me, it's just as annoying when we Canadians don't get to enjoy mainstream fair like RANDOM HARVEST, which aired last night during Gene Wilder's guest programmer stint, or TO BE OR NOT TO BE ('42) and FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT, both of which are airing as Essentials this year. These are all among the films that TCM's Canadian viewers do not get to enjoy. Why do Canadians not get to see Gene Kelly's BRIGADOON, when
  3. Personally, I think this is a great schedule -- a little something for everyone, and a little something for everyone to complain about as well.
  4. I doubt they'll give Eva Marie Saint a SOTM tribute, just because she hasn't made too many movies, so the TCM programmers would likely be hard-pressed to create a month-long tribute to her. At any rate, we'll likely find out in the next week or so who the September SOTM will be.
  5. Here is the vast majority of the 2014 Summer Under the Stars schedule: August 2 -- Peter Sellers August 3 -- Walter Pidgeon August 4 -- Judy Garland August 5 -- Barbara Stanwyck August 6 -- Paul Muni August 7 -- James Stewart August 8 -- Jeanne Moreau August 9 -- William Powell August 10 -- Carole Lombard August 11 -- Marlon Brando August 12 -- Alexis Smith August 13 -- Cary Grant August 14 -- Charlie Chaplin August 15 -- Faye Dunaway August 16 -- Herbert Marshall August 17 -- John Hodiak August 18 -- Claudette Colbert August 19 -- Paul Newman August 20 -
  6. James Cagney was certainly well-known for the turbulent relationship he had with Warner Bros. throughout his time at the studio. Cagney was one of the first actors to beat a major Hollywood studio in a contract dispute.
  7. One of my favorite Claudette Colbert performances is in the 1939 comedy Midnight, with John Barrymore and Don Ameche. All three leads are absolutely delightful, and I've always felt that the film is not nearly as well-known as it should be.
  8. Am I correct in assuming you're referring to Claudette Colbert?
  9. Actor Bob Hoskins, best known for his roles in The Long Good Friday (1980), Mona Lisa (1986), and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), has died of pneumonia at the age of 71. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-27224995
  10. I've always felt that the ending of the film version of Double Indemnity is far superior to the ending of the James M. Cain novel.
  11. Another highlight is the day of George Sanders films on July 3
  12. Here's the link: http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html?tz=EST&sdate=2014-07-01 A few highlights: Star of the Month: Maureen O'Hara Friday Night Spotlight: The 100th Anniversary of World War I Guest Programmer: William Friedkin (Director of The French Connection (1971))
  13. For all those here who are not boycotting Woody Allen films, you can catch Woody's 1973 film *Sleeper* tomorrow night at 9:45PM EST on TCM.
  14. It's going to be a repeat of the same interview, for viewers who didn't catch the first airing.
  15. This is an unfair comparison. Running backs in football all do essentially the same thing. But each great movie director is an artist, and therefore, in some respect, utterly unique. Who is to say whether Woody Allen is one of the top five movie directors ever? Many people (myself included) would be inclined to argue that Woody Allen is definitely among the greatest movie directors of all time. But many others could just as easily argue the opposite. And as with all things in art, these sorts of lists (i.e. top five movie directors) are totally subjective. On the same list you might
