  1. > {quote:title=Hoosier205 wrote:}{quote} Perhaps, if they are watching on a 32" Sanyo like you. You have no idea what type of tv I have or the quality of it....which, incidentally, is top-notch.
  2. Regardless of whether you think it's the right thing to do or not, some people simply don't care to own a video collection of everything they may or may not want to watch once in awhile, and prefer to watch when it comes on tv because it's more of a special treat to them.
  3. > {quote:title=Hoosier205 wrote:}{quote} ...why bother? Just buy them on Blu-ray for a much better experience. Because not everyone can afford to buy everything on Blu-ray...or simply don't want to own every movie, so they watch them on tv.
  4. > {quote:title=chandler5710 wrote:}{quote}I've forgotten how to post photos on this site, sorry. Humiliating. The links are fine because most of those photos are too big and would scroll off the side.
  5. What's funny about that scene is right before Groucho's line is the shot of the old hag singing...followed by his line, and the reaction of that guy in the box next to him. She deserves what he says. :^0
  6. > {quote:title=TopBilled wrote:}{quote}In WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?, one of them is dubbed with the other's voice during a telephone scene. I think it is Bette who is pretending to be Joan, and it is obvious that she could not do an accurate impersonation, so they just dubbed her with Joan's actual voice. It is indeed...Jane answers the phone which is a call for Blanche, so she does an "imitation" of Blanche's voice. I never knew that was Joan's voice they dubbed over Bette's.

Coincidentally...I just found this gif animation of that bit (the picture posted was incorrect for the moment). :^0 "BOOGIE, BOOGIE, BOOGIE!!"
  8. Regardless of the voice actor's delivery, performance and etc., to me it's the audio quality of the voice....it doesn't sound like it was recorded on-set with the other actors...and THAT'S what I find offsetting about it and what makes it noticeable.

Uh, yes...that's the title of the album I mentioned in my previous reply. I just couldn't remember the title when I posted the comment. :0
  11. The difference with HOMICIDAL is not that the looped voice itself is bad, but the mixing of the sound is...it simply sounds like a dubbed-over voice.
  12. I agree...these problems do seem to be taking an incredibly long time to fix...but... http://forums.tcm.com/category.jspa?categoryID=71
  13. *Greystoke* - Glenn Close dubbed Andie McDowell's voice for the entire film because Andie couldn't do a correct British accent. *The Legend of The Lone Ranger* - Klinton Spilsbury was so bad as the Lone Ranger, his entire voice was dubbed by James Keach. *Spartacus* - For the restored bath scene with Laurence Olivier and Tony Curtis, Olivier's voice was redubbed by Anthony Hopkins. *Bedknobs and Broomsticks* - For the restoraion of the film with additional restored scenes, David Tomlinson's and Tessie O'Shea's voices were redubbed by other actors...and not very convincingly, eith
  14. Paul Frees in The War of The Worlds. As the voice of the Talking Rings in The Time Machine.
  15. > {quote:title=Sepiatone wrote:}{quote} > That would mean it sucks even MORE! I don't understand the point you're driving at...it's common knowledge (as far back as the days of Famous Monsters magazine) that those two films WERE censored at the time of their original releases.
  16. > {quote:title=Sepiatone wrote:}{quote} > No, we never WILL know, so why bother making it up? Hibi wasn't "making it up" or "making up" anything...she was simply giving her own opinion/supposition on the subject. She's not the only one who has held that belief over the years regarding Marilyn's untimely death. "Making up" suggests that one is fabricating "facts" and trying to pass them off as the truth...Hibi was merely giving her own opinion.
  17. > {quote:title=Sepiatone wrote:}{quote} > It bugged me as a kid that TV stations would chop out several scenes in those old horror classics for our "protection". Such as Karloff's monster in *Frankenstein* tossing the little girl in the water, and *King Kong* stomping on that Skull Island native. > > At least they did in MY neck of the woods. > You're quite wrong about that...those scenes were censored when those films were originally released in the 30's...they never got restored to the films until almost 50 years later. They were never seen on television until then. T
  18. > {quote:title=TopBilled wrote:}{quote} > Also, does anyone ever credit the woman who was Janet Leigh's stand-in for the PSYCHO shower scene? Miss Leigh did not stand in the tub under the water the whole time Hitchcock was shooting that. Neither was Anthony Perkins involved in that scene...Perkins stated (humorously, I might add) on some tv special which I have on video somewhere that it "was his stand-in" whom he mentions by name, and "he can take the rap for that scene from now on". It's the double wearing mother's dress and wig who stabs Leigh in the shower.
  19. > {quote:title=ValeskaSuratt wrote:}{quote}Frees' voice recordings from as far back as 1956 are still heard on Disneyland rides and old Disney TV shows. Most memorably, he is the voice of the "ghost host" narrator who leads visitors through The Haunted Mansion attraction. He also did countless voiceovers for god-only-knows how many movie trailers...the one I know the best is The Abominable Dr. Phibes ("Probably the most terrifying motion picture you will ever see!"), and on that film's soundtrack album (which is more of a "music inspired by" thing), he sings several songs, a couple of whi

  21. > {quote:title=PrinceSaliano wrote:}{quote} Bumping this up. In case you didn't know, you don't have to make a new post or re-quote yourself to bump a thread. All you need to do is to perform some type of slight edit on your last reply...just change one little thing...and that bumps the thread back up. No matter where your reply is in the thread, it bumps it. Just FYI...

It looks like he's wearing a striped shirt....compare to the Supe shot someone posted. The dark stripe at the top of the shirt goes all the way across....it doesn't look like his cape. Kirk Alyn, but not as Superman.
  23. > {quote:title=ginnyfan wrote:}{quote}He also used to be principal pops conductor for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and, most importantly to me, was accompanist to Groucho Marx during his early 1970s concert tour. I have that album, An Evening With Groucho, and it's really funny when Groucho makes a comment at the beginning "You play just like Marvin Hamlisch...OH! You ARE Marvin Hamlisch!"
  24. They are also great examples...unlike musicals, as I've cited below, wherein the music is a plot device in a completely different manner...where the music IS as much a part of the plot and story as any other element. In AMADEUS, the music itself is almost a character too.
