  1. I loved that guy. He was Merv’s foil after Arthur Treacher quit being on the show. The last time I saw him in anything was when he played the bandleader in the Bette Midler/James Caan movie For The Boys.
  2. Bob Dorian was the father of Jennifer Dorian who is an executive Vice President at TCM.
  3. I went on the TCM cruise in October and Ben said there was going to be a different host for the next season of The Essentials. Since the programming has been around for about 15 years, for about the first 14 seasons the films were pretty mainstream and often repetitive. I see nothing wrong with Ava & Ben branching out a little.
  4. Danny Aiello was included and he just died a couple of days ago. TCM is usually pretty good at this memorial thing.
  5. It’s weird because our local comedy club had announced Witherspoon coming to do a show about 3 days before he passed away. He & Dave were close plus I think they came up in the clubs about the same time.
  6. You’re new around here. There used to be an ongoing thread here about Osborne’s mistakes. Probably the only reason it’s not prominent is due to his death.
  7. I think it must be the 40th anniversary of The Blues Brothers. Which makes me feel ancient.
  8. Thanks Jakeem. I wasn’t sure if she had remarried after divorcing Frank. The article I read didn’t have any information about any other marriage. It’s good to have correct information.
  9. Ben and his brother Josh lost their mother at age 94. It was posted on the Dateline Facebook page. She seemed to be as formidable as their dad. My significant other said she was on the TCM cruise last month but I didn’t see her.
  10. I am no where near this age group, but I do think a lot of these suggestions are good. i just want to add Mutiny on the Bounty from 1935. Great cast and lots of action. Some of it can be edgy but I think kids can handle it.
  11. My late sister and I loved Paint Your Wagon and it’s panned by everyone I know who’s seen it. I find the non-singers charming. I still get a kick out of watching it. I also quite fond of Camelot with Richard Harris & Vanessa Redgrave.
  12. He hosted The Essentials the first year.
  13. This dinner is a fund raiser and the honoree needs to be willing to participate. That might be why some people are honored while others are not.
  14. Back in the early days of cable (probably late 70’s early 80’s, TBS was showing old movies & tv shows. In fact, every Monday they showed the roadshow musicals from the 50’s and early 60’s, even having call in voting for some of them. When TNT went on the air, Sunday evening was dedicated to showing international films. So Turner had some of these ideas before AMC went on the air. Robert told the story that he was contacted for a job with AMC but Turner hired the people he talked to and they in turn told him to not accept the AMC job since Turner was starting their own 24 hour channel. AMC, when they were classic films showed a 12 hour block that was then repeated. Ted Turner has Lewy body dementia so he doesn’t have Alzheimer’s. I saw a story about him on CBS Sunday Morning and his condition seems more akin to Parkinson’s.
