  1. I've been an avid watcher of TCM since the beginning. The recent change to show more modern era films and questionable content has pretty much ended my interest in TCM. What happened to Joan Crawford and Jean Harlow films? Clark Gable or Randolph Scott? Alec Guinness anyone? How about more silent films? Nope, films from 2006 are a better choice. Ugh. The constant showing of the Blackface mini - over and over and over. I get it, white people put black makeup on and did caricature of black people. I"m sorry they did that to you! Women make movies.

I absolutely DREAD Saturday night movie viewing now. I groan when I turn on TCM and go, “WAIT! It’s Saturday! That means two (usually) newer boring films that aren’t ‘classic’. Oh well, it’ll be 11:00 soon an
  5. RIP Dear, dear Robert Osborne. Condolences to his friends and family. What a loss. I can't type any more or I'll start crying again.. Martha Clark Buda, TX
  6. I haven't posted anything yet. Is a bit confusing choosing where to post for daily discussion. Think I'll just post in most replied thread at top...after first viewing the clip.
