  1. I had never seen it before and I thought it was really good on several levels. I just thought they could have cut the extra 15 minutes out of that long tedious "date" they had. I didn't think it was that important for us to know that the Italian man had snap-snap- clap-snap that night. I would have liked a reunion at the end with Guy and his wonderful adopted family and a few more lines from Miiko Taka the star of "Sayonara." She was the reason I was watching.
  2. I did the same and then one day my VCR broke on the VHS side, tearing up several tapes before I gave up. Next, I tried to buy a new player/recorder and couldn't find one. The Magnovox itself was fairly new and the other side should be able to record on blank DVD's but we can't figure out how to do it. I spent one entire day determined to get it right and never could, neither could my brother or husband, both with computer science degrees. So. I don't have any of the DVR/Tivo whatever things so I can no longer record anything at all and have to actually stay up to 4 A.M to watch Joan Crawford movies IN REAL TIME, too.! I have figured out that most TVNetworks give you a week or so to watch their things online. I refuse to pay anything beyond what I pay for cable so no Hulu or Netflix etc. for me. I still consider myself very lucky to have TCM and got it specially added to my cable package through begging etc. The cable man was here today, so I've been thinking about this very subject. I get several hundred stations and watch six. He said that was true of most people. If I just got what I watched it would look like this: TCM - checking it out all the time ABC -- Dateline NBC -- This is Us NBC --The Bachelor, don't judge, it gives good snarky message board. CBS -- The News CBS -- Jeopardy CBS -- Survivor PBS -- Masterpiece Theatre and almost everything else on Sunday nights. AMC -- Better Call Saul TVLand --Andy Griffith I do surf sometimes but rarely stop anywhere until I'm back at TCM.
  3. I must see this! I love Zachary Scott and I can't wait to see Kristine be evil! She just fascinates me , so tall, so beautiful and that long, gorgeous hair.
  4. I like my villains to be so over the top they're funny, think Alan Rickman: "Cancel Christmas!" and yes I want to see them get there's in the end. Two of my favorite villains are together in "Too Late for Tears," Lizabeth Scott and Dan Duryea. They have some wonderful villain vs villain moments. I love watching small time thug Dan go from bullying who he thinks is a timid housewife into becoming terrified of her. He gets his comeuppance from her and then she has a fantastic ending where her own greed causes that spectacular fall off the balcony. My kind of villains!
  5. Yes, I did see that post, that's what made me think of him. I think he's pretty hunky, but he's not in my top ten. Now John Garfield....swoon. He has a way of looking at his co-stars like he's 100% into them. He and Lana in, "The Postman Always Rings Twice," define screen chemistry.
  6. My favorite handsome face is Robert Taylor's, but I have no idea how beef cakey he is in his trunks. I figure if Lana is all over him like that his body is probably alright. My sister-in-law thinks my husband looks like Daniel Craig. I don't see it myself, but it's made me keep an eye on her.
  7. That's the thing. As special as Marilyn was, she never had to stand the test of time. We didn't see her age or attempt movies outside her type cast role of sexy, young blonde. Another reason I nominate Liz is that she was cast in so many big block busters like "Cleopatra," and "Giant" even though she probably wasn't the greatest living actress at the time. Over and over she was cast primarily for her box office draw -- that's pure star power.
  8. Elizabeth Taylor didn't go into seclusion like Garbo or die young like Marilyn, but she graced the covers of magazines for decades with the public following her every marriage, divorce, and illness from her childhood to her death. She's not my favorite actress but she's the number one movie star in my mind.
  9. Watched that last night and really enjoyed it. Jean Arthur's voice makes her such a natural comedic actress. There were also some very nice speeches from Ronald Coleman about the importance of the rule of law in our country.
  10. Wow that's sad. Those stars were expected to stay so thin, and that was the day of women using smoking as a diet aid, "Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet."
  11. Yeah, sorry. I guess I've taken skimming to a new level and only read the first half of sentences now. Heaven help us if they do make a new one with one of the Ryans.
  12. Grace Kelly -- Rear Window Natalie Wood -- Splendor in the Grass Elizabeth Taylor -- A Place in the Sun Gene Tierney -- Laura Audrey Hepburn -- My Fair Lady Deborah Kerr -- The King and I Lana Turner and Donna Reed -- Green Dolphin Street Sophia and Raquel are great ladies but a little too earthy and fleshy for my taste, but I'm a woman and prefer the ones who are elegant and slender in clothes, rather than the ones who are most sexy out of them. {Am I the only one who noticed Sophia looks like she swallowed a cantaloupe in that bikini picture?}
  13. The one who made my skin crawl (maybe that's a different thread) was Marsha Gaye Harden, who seemed to be egging on all the violence and confusion while flirting with Sean Penn's character and baby talking through the whole film.
  14. "It's Love I'm After" is featured in one of my favorite Youtube bits. So I had to watch it and I really like it, too. Leslie Howard
