  1. I am watching most of them. I believe I caught ALL of the early and early-middle Hitchcock, except for Jamaica Inn (accidentally deleted it from my DVR, oops!). As for late-middle and late Hitchcock, I skipped The Birds, and even though almost everyone on the planet Earth likes Vertigo, it is not one of my favorites in terms of actual plot, despite its wonderful score and colorful cinematography, and I may skip it as well, though right now I have it on my DVR. I might skip Frenzy, too, because it sounds less like a thriller and more like a slasher. But I made a point of catching the rest of th
  2. My DVR malfunctioned the other night, and I missed the beginning of TCM's broadcast of Psycho, which means I missed the interview with the director of the documentary about Psycho! So now I am wondering if there is any way I can watch the interview. I am so disappointed as I have watched every Hitchcock movie which has aired this month (with the exception of The Birds and Jamaica Inn), but my DVR just picked the best film of all to malfunction during! Please does someone have a link to the interview somewhere? (And please don't suggest I join TCM Backlot. I do not care to spend $87 t
  3. I notice that Comcast viewers got to see One Man's Journey on demand, but it was not available to Time Warner Cable customers. And furthermore, most of the time, only ONE or TWO movies are available at a time. If there are a half-dozen available on a given day, they disappear one-by-one and are not replaced, until there are none left; sometimes for days there will be nothing. it's happening again, in fact. We were blitzed with all that Weimar cinema, and then suddenly they all disappeared, and nothing replaced them. What is going on? Something new should be added each time something is taken a

  5. This is what has been happening at Time Warner Cable since the week before Easter. It is really inexcusable. I guess they are too busy selling wine and cruise tickets to care if their customers can receive their primary product, movies.
  6. Well, I wish that Time-Warner Cable would stop up and work with TCM's vendor. We have been missing movies for a couple of days, and today there is only one movie availble, Treasure Island. I tried calling Time-Warner, and they said they have no control over TCM's VOD. This is really inexcusable, and I blame TCM, not Time-Warner. I think I will stop watching TCM since they refuse to deliver their product to me.
  7. Regarding Strange Cargo (1940) which aired at 1:15am EDT tonight. The studio initially released this film and got a "Condemned" rating. Then they made some minor changes, released it, and it was reduced to "unobjectionable for adults". I would be curious to know whether the version airing is the original "condemned" version or the modified version. Does anyone know?
  8. Well, now TCM has finally updated it's OnDemand offerings to Time-Warner Cable. I am grateful. But only to a limited extent. For now it has gone back to the old way of doing things. For the last 2-3 weeks, it was keeping up with Comcas, showing the same offerings and actually including the intros by Ben Mankiewicz & Robert Osborne. But now it's back to showing only half the offerings. Ace Drummond and Buck Rogers are there, but where are Phantom, Batman, Dick Tracy? They are appearing on Comcast. "Baby, the Rain Must Fall" is ther, but where is "Cincinnati Kid"? It's appearing on Comca
  9. So, right after I posted this, TCM OnDemand stopped updated on my Time-Warner Cable service. Then this morning, it completely disappeared. What is this, retaliation? Time-Warner claims that TCM is not giving them updates. Is that true? Please send the updates to Time-Warner. If this is not what has happened, will someone please tell me what is going on?
  10. Once again, TCM On Demand for Time-Warner Cable customers is showing how terrible it is. We haven't had anything new added in the last several days, but a whole bunch of things were removed at once yesterday. We are down to exactly three selections. One was removed whilst I was in the middle of watching it, so I'm extremely displeased. But please, it's not just quantity, but also quality and variety. I notice for Comcast you've made available "The Apartment" and "THe Magnificent Seven", but these have appeared on TCM and/or TCM On Demand A LOT lately. How about putting up some of the dayti
  11. It's nice that I get TCM on Demand via Time-Warner Cable, but I have two complants/requests: (1) The introductions by Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz are not included (although I notice for "Caesar and Cleopatra" it was, perhaps by mistake?). Please include these! They add a lot of value to the viewing! (2) I notice a member listing the TCM on Demand choices for Comcast. It seems that Comcast gets more selections than Time-Warner Cable does, which is very odd since didn't Time-Warner buy out Turner a decade ago?
