  1. As others have said, it's expected but still surprising nonetheless. Is it possible for TCM to replay some of Robert Osborne intros for some movies from time to time? R.I.P. Mr. Osborne.
  2. Definitely a Miss. I didn’t think Scarlett loved Ashley either. I saw her so call love and pursuit of Ashley as wanting something she couldn’t have. I imagine if she had won Ashley’s heart she would’ve grown bored with him or unfortunately cause his death as she did with one of her other husbands
  3. Lord of the Rings. I’ve tried twice to see the first movie, fully awake in the middle of the day. Knocked me out both times. I didn’t even try watching the other two movies thinking I will fall asleep on those and I get so much heat for that. LOL! It is probably a good movie. Maybe it deserves all the Oscars it won and was nominated for but it’s not for me.
  4. Thanks. That explains it. Kind of unfortunate given he has movies from the 80s and early 90s that could air on TCM for Gene Hackman's SOTM.
  5. I think that was my favorite scene. Scarlett drove me nuts. She’s too high maintenance for me to like. LOL! Before I saw GWTW, I was told it was an epic love story between Scarlett and Rhett with the Civil War as a backdrop. While I like the movie and found it very visually stunning, I didn’t see an epic love story. I did see what you don’t do to someone you supposedly love.
  6. Does TCM have rights to many Gene Hackman movies? This past Friday Gene Hackman’s night of movies ended at 2am and this Friday it will end at 3:45am unlike other SOTM I’ve viewed where their night ended at 6am or in cases like Cary Grant SOTM in December 2014 and July’s Olivia de Havilland ended late the next morning.
  7. Okay 2016, you can stop now. So sad Gene Wilder is gone but he’s no longer suffering. R.I.P. The first movie I saw of Gene Wilder was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I saw the movie with my Dad. He teased me a bit for crying at the end but I couldn’t help it. I was so happy for Charlie and he and his family were going to live a better life. Gene Wilder’s “You lose” rant is still one of the funniest rants I’ve seen. My Dad introduced me to Blazing Saddles and I was crying for a different reason. Lol. This year was the first time I saw Young Frankenstein. They really don’t m
  8. I’m watching The More the Merrier starring Jean Arthur and Charles Coburn. Charles Coburn is always fun to watch. I wonder has Charles Coburn been a SOTM or had a day in SUTS?
  9. Favorite Days: Edward G. Robinson, Bing Crosby, Jean Harlow, Anne Baxter, Esther Williams, Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Hedy Lamarr and Spencer Tracy. I’m looking forward to Boris Karloff and Jean Arthur days. I thought they would show Victor/Victoria on James Garner day but I guess TCM felt they showed that enough times this year already.
  10. I think it’s a disservice to not show these films. Surely people know movies of a certain time were racially offensive and sexist. If you’re watching TCM, you should expect to see those type of films I think with or without forewarning of a host. If local channels forewarn the audience saying the thoughts and opinions of the following program do not reflect the people of this station, why can’t TCM do the same for these controversial movies? For me, these controversial movies are a reflection of how things were in the time it was filmed. It can be sad and very cringe worthy but the positiv
  11. At least in Charade they actually acknowledged the age difference and had Audrey Hepburn's character be the pursuer. Father Goose -- Cary Grant 60, Leslie Caron 33 (27 years)
  12. I think that depends on the child and what you know they can handle. I remember being introduced to classic films through cartoons initially. I watched Disney animated films like Pinocchio, Dumbo, Cinderella and the Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and other animated shorts before watching live action Disney movies like The Shaggy Dog, The Absent Minded Professor and Swiss Family Robinson. Wizard of Oz and Thief of Bagdad starring Sabu are also good movies for kids. I think the bright colors would draw them in more than the story if they are very young. I wouldn’t make this the first movie but
  13. I just watched Million Dollar Mermaid. Annette Kellerman was a real pioneer for women’s swimwear and the swimming sport itself. I thought it was very fitting for Esther Williams to have a day especially with the Olympics going on. Too bad WWII prevented Esther Williams from competing and winning any Olympic medals. She was a superb swimmer and diver. I also saw Neptune’s Daughter. I laughed at the role reversal of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” performed by Betty Garrett and Red Skeleton. Very tongue in cheek. It was nice to see Mel Blanc on screen. I only know him from his voices on Looney Tu
  14. Could the animosity be because of the criticism BvS received and the reshoots of Suicide Squad after BvS? Thanks for the review. I've been debating if I should see it or wait until cable because I was disappointed in BvS but I might bite the bullet and see it on discount day at my local theater.
  15. No summaries. Gotcha. I know to remember when a movie was made when watching. If I didn't, I wouldn't be able to watch or enjoy a lot of classic movies. I laugh at how some things were which is what I did as I watched this movie. In fact, it's refreshing to see because of how much progress has been made in society.
