  1. Yes, that was her in Men in White with Clark Gable and Myrna Loy...by the way, that movie is supposed to be on in a week or two I think. She was also in A Tale of Two Cities as Lucie.
  2. screwballflake ~ I agree with all of the titles you mentioned! Screwball comedies really need more representation on DVD, though there was just a set of them released (with the movies Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, Dinner at Eight, Libeled Lady, Stage Door, and To Be or Not to Be). I was happy to see Bringing Up Baby in the video store on DVD; that was a long wait! I am excited for the Thin Man series to come out as well! and to ayresorchids ~ I assume you're looking for the DVD version of History is Made at Night(I know this thread is about DVD's, but...) because it is availab
  3. The only autographed (it is on a picture too) I have comes from Joan Fontaine. I sent her a letter a few years ago, and, not expecting a reply, got one about 2 weeks later! I was surprised and happy of course. She sent a nice little note with the picture too. I thought that was nice of her.
  4. As for the nose question, I have also heard that Myrna Loy had the nose that the most people wanted in the 30's. I remember hearing that plastic surgeons got the most requests for her type of nose.
  5. That's the website! Thanks! I have about 1 and a half years to go, so I hope I can last that long!
  6. I recently took a foreign film class at my college, and learned to love foreign films. I am thankful that TCM shows them, and, next month, Ingrid Bergman is the Star of the Month and they are showing some of her films from Sweden! I can't wait for that! Really, though, they only usually show one foreign film a week, I believe at 2 am on Friday/Saturday. And that is at 2 AM too! I think they are just fine where they are, and maybe one or two more wouldn't hurt either.
  7. The younger generation should definitely know about these movies! I am younger myself - I'm in college - and I discovered old movies about 4 years ago - when I was about your age kelsea25. I have found a few others my age who like them, but not many at all. You definitely have to get used to them, but it is worth it!
  8. I agree with Peggy Cummins for Gun Crazy. She was great in that. I also like Gloria Grahame, especially in film noirs. Just the way she looked and her face suited her perfectly for dame roles.
  9. Thanks for this list of films! Between this and Ingrid Bergman in June, I will be watching a lot of films! You've said to say what films on your list we've seen, well, I've seen Clash by Night, Night of the Hunter, They Live by Night, In a Lonely Place, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, Double Indemnity, and Two O'Clock Courage. They were all good in their own respects. I loved the storyline of Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, and I intend to watch that again. Robert Mitchum gave a wonderful performance in Night of the Hunter; he was really scary and convincing. In a Lonely Place was great with Bogart and
  10. As edgdrv recently mentioned, I would love to see Eleanor Parker. I recently saw two of her movies - One for the Book with Ronald Reagan (one of my favorites) and The Naked Jungle. I really enjoy her movies; any movie she is in, I'd watch it. A lot of people forget about her, sadly, even though she made some great films. I also would love to see Marsha Hunt. Recently I watched her in Raw Deal and she was good. She was hit with that blacklist scandal I believe in the late 40's-50's (or it hurt her career in film at least), but she made a lot of films in the 30's and 40's. She published a wo
  11. I think they might...I have inquired about that a few times (I am in college) and for the Turner company, I have read that you have to be at least a junior in college to intern with them. This includes networks such as CNN and TBS. I forget the exact website with this information, but if you do a search, you should be able to find it. I have also written to TCM, but I still have not found much info on the subject. If you find anything, do share! Working at TCM is my dream job, and I want to try to intern there when I am old enough.
  12. For me, Citizen Kane and Casablanca don't hold my attention. I have tried Casablanca about three times (and I'll try again sometime) but I still can't get into the story.
  13. I can't wait for the Film Forum's Paramount Pre-Code festival! There are so many great movies that can not be found on tape or TV - I wish I could go everyday! I really can't wait to see The Story of Temple Drake, though. That is one of the most infamous pre-codes...it should be good.
  14. "A Foggy Day" is in the movie A Damsel in Distress, one of Fred Astaire's movies he made without Ginger Rogers.
  15. That segment of the line-up that you listed sounds great, I can't wait to see it all....by the way, do you have the link for that? I can never find these schedules this far in advance. Thanks.
  16. I never thought a topic like this would come up... I understand this 'phobia' - I actually had it a few years ago before I liked old movies (I am still a teenager, so...) When I was younger, I didn't like watching black and white movies. I am not sure what exactly it was, but I think it had something to do with the fact that by it being in black and white you knew it was old, and also the fact that the people on screen were dead. Even though that is not true at all, I think that had something to do with my weird fear of them. Anyway, I watched my first black and white on purpose: Suspicion, a
  17. This is such sad news, my condolences to her family and friends. She was one of my favorite actresses; if she was in a movie, I'd be compelled to watch. As Liz Imbrie in The Philadelphia Story, she made a large impression; her character helped make that movie as funny as it is. She was great in her roles in The Women, Another Thin Man, Susan and God, The Uninvited, and so many more. I saw her in Married Bachelor when it was on TCM a few months ago, and I was reminded of her wonderful talent. The wit, beauty, and gentility she brought to her characters was what made them so great. John, she was
  18. The Philadelphia Story - those three together, I mean, WOW. The Women - had a great female cast. Grand Hotel - a lot of early 30s talent right there. Stage Door - another great one with a great female cast. And then there are movies like Hollywood Canteen, Thank Your Lucky Stars, and Stage Door Canteen made during the war with lots of cameos, can't forget those ones!
  19. I recently became interested in westerns...I love John Wayne, he is amazing. I also like the early 30's westerns; they are just fun to watch. I don't know a lot about the subject though.
  20. My first Cary Grant movie was Suspicion, and that one does hold a special place because it was the first old movie I ever saw (intentionally that is). However, this is a hard question for me to answer. I love him in comedies, hands down. Bringing Up Baby and Holiday are favorites (I love him with Katharine Hepburn). I also like him, however, in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House and The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (both with Myrna Loy). As mentioned here as well, Arsenic and Old Lace is simply hilarious. This is hard indeed! I would have to go with Bringing Up Baby, though, I think I could
  21. Hmmmm....this is a cool question; it makes me think about my answer. I would take Montgomery Clift's face, Robert Montgomery's charm, Cary Grant's zany personality in his comedies(those last two are mixed), John Wayne's tough guy attitude, and probably Guy Madison's body. That would be very interesting to see!
  22. Hi and welcome to the boards! I'm interested in the same thing as you (haha, no wonder, considering the website we are on!) I like Myrna Loy too, and I also like Greer Garson, Maureen O'Hara, Joan Fontaine, Deborah Kerr, Barbara Stanwyck, and many more. For men, I love Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Robert Montgomery, John Wayne, Walter Pidgeon, and that list goes on as well! I hope you enjoy exploring these boards - it is a lot of fun!
  23. The Women, as someone mentioned. The Picture of Dorian Gray also has some, but that is only of the actual picture of Dorian Gray (which makes it scarier when you see the movie!) The original Phantom of the Opera was I believe, as someone said, done in some color, I'm not sure how much. Of course, The Wizard of Oz, the obvious one, although I think so many people forget it because it is so famous. If you are going for recent ones too, I was thinking of Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo - this was made in the mid 80s, but it takes place during the 1930s in a town where a woman goes to the m
  24. Three on a Match - I had wanted to see that for the longest time and I finally got to about a year ago...great film! As to the original question....I'm in college now and don't get TCM (very sad) so I don't get to see a lot at all, but I think they show mostly good stuff. I get a little worried when I see newer films (like 80s,90s) on the schedule in prime time, but....they are still going strong, to me at least.
  25. Jamaica Inn is one of my favorites, and to me, it does not feel like a real Hitchcock film. I have never read the book, so I do not know if it follows the book closely. I just liked the performances in the film, especially Charles Laughton. I didn't think I would like it because it is more like a pirate / adventure film, but I enjoyed it. That's about all I can say about it, hope you like it.
