  1. I remember seeing STANDING ROOM ONLY on TCM once.
  2. The job is no longer accepting applications.
  3. It's been on YouTube for years. It's weird that YouTube yanks some movies, but ignores other ones.
  4. I've been trying to watch as many musicals as I can for this course, so maybe I wasn't in the right mood or frame of mind to watch Two Girls and a Sailor. I watched the two back-to-back and they kind of blended together. I'll watch Two Girls by itself when it comes on TCM again.
  5. I've been trying to watch as many musicals as possible, some I have never seen before, or others I haven't watched in a long time. I watched Two Sisters in Boston (meh), Two Girls and a Sailor (couldn't wait for that film to be over), and That Midnight Kiss (Lanza and Grayson have great voices) today. Watching my favorite, Singin' in the Rain right now.
  6. I want to talk about the Every Sunday short with Judy Garland and Deanna Durbin. In the lecture notes, Dr. Ament asked why was Deanna Durbin let go from MGM? The question was answered in Jeanine Basinger's book The Star Machine which has a section on Durbin's stardom. She states that Garland already had a seven-year contract with the studio and Durbin was killing time before she started a film biopic of opera singer Madame Ernestine Schumann-Heink; Durbin would have played her as a child. Durbin had only been signed to a six-month contract. Sadly, Schumann-Heink became ill and died. The studio had no work for Deanna and when the six months was up, she was dropped. Fortunately, MGM casting director Rufus LeMaire, who selected Durbin for the biopic, made a deal to come to Universal, and his new contract had a clause that allowed him to bring over any exceptional talent he discovered. He took Durbin. Has anyone seen the opening credits to Three Smart Girls? I couldn't find a good video, so here's the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gj8XM23Fzk I found the movie on YouTube. Watch the beginning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZF2jiKPEKps
  7. YES!!! There's a KY chapter thread, but I was the last reply. I don't care if it's KY or Louisville, I want in!
  8. The ending to Female. Ruth Chatterton's character doesn't give up running her business.
  9. I watch TCM on the WATCH TCM app or the DIRECT TV app (I use a relative's password for access) and I have FilmStruck.
  10. Yes! Right now I am in Owensboro, KY but looking to move to Louisville soon.
  11. Thank you Mr. Edwards for this course. I have learned a lot about film noir!
  12. Music and scenes of violence go hand in hand. The louder the music, the worse the violence. Hume Cronyn surprised me in this role.
  13. Discuss how this film depicts and utilizes this "unnamed city." Additionally, why do you think the film is entitled "The Asphalt Jungle?" I think the film is called The Asphalt Jungle because a city can seem like a jungle. How do you find your way? Do you get side tracked on the side streets? Will you ever be able to get out?
