  1. Yeah, the teal push in the restoration was distracting. It is the only reason why I never purchased Kino's 2017 release. Color grading done at L'Immagine Ritrovata are hit or miss. It's a shame since their restoration work on black and white is excellent. I have not had a chance to view the new color grading done for this year's 4K release. I am still undecided on upgrading yet again.
  2. If they make us say Kickero, let's movie and riot!😋
  3. I liked these modern movies: Girl with a Pearl Earring about Johannes Vermeer Frida about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Films about art forgers: F For Fake How To Steal a Million
  4. Paramount is releasing A Place in the Sun on August 10th. Some new unconfirmed officially titles for Warner Archive in August. One Crazy Summer (08/10) Shadow of the Thin Man (08/17) In The Good Old Summertime (08/17)
  5. The real Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit after Capone and later committed suicide to avoid prison. He was going to be indicted for an extortion scheme targeting Paramount, MGM, RKO, 20th Century Fox and others. I always thought it a nice touch that Paramount got some measure of fictional revenge in the end. 😂
  6. I think it is possible that the actor in the scene is not Richard Burton, but those lines could have been dubbed by him. If I just focus on the voice, I am 100% sure it is Richard Burton's very distinctive voice. Here's a video:
  7. Definitely try to check out the 2019 documentary Image Makers: The Adventures of America's Pioneer Cinematographers that TCM showed. It focuses primarily on the early cinematographers and how influential they were.
  8. Clift is the inspiration for the lyrics of REM's Monty got a Raw Deal. Brando is mentioned along with James Dean in Madonna's Vogue along with tons of other film stars.
  9. First actor to come to mind is Klaus Kinski, a monstrous psychopath both on and off the screen. Karlheinz Bohm's character from Peeping Tom
  10. Actually, Three Daughters is an anthology of 3 approximately hour long films based on the short stories of Rabindranath Tagore. When it was released back in 1961, the subtitles for the middle film Monihara were not complete in time for international release and was dropped, so it is the lesser well known of the three films. An interesting side note is that all of the Tagore adaptations Satyajit Ray made into films have women as their central character. I definitely recommend Charulata for viewers unfamiliar with Ray's work. The other two short films being shown, The Coward (Kapurush)
  11. Here is the original seller. They have illustrations for All About Eve, Gone with the Wind and a few other movies
  12. Another site that I frequent started to require people to use images server over Secure HTTP about 2 years ago. Perhaps the TCM forum now requires this after the redesign. It is becoming more common since the major browser maker are tightening up security wherever possible now. When posting images just look for URLs that start with https:// instead of http://
  13. I was so upset by King Kong's exit when I was 5 years old, that whenever we watched it my father had to rewind the tape for me just so he'd be alive again.
  14. The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm has been restored and will be released sometime in 2021 probably by Warner Archive. I have heard that the film elements for Raintree County are in such poor condition that it requires a very extensive restoration and it would cost a lot of money.
  15. I am not surprised Warner ignored their catalog. They have their own massive catalog of films that never even made it to DVD. WAC has been releasing some great stuff the last 2 years. I am glad for the titles we are getting.
