  1. Looking for Mr. Goodbar is my favorite movie of all time. I’ve followed its media distribution closely, and have searched for dvds all over the world. Trust me. It has never had an authorized DVD release in any region. Only vhs and laser disc. I’m really thrilled to see it streaming on Watch TCM.
  2. The holy grail for me would be a copy of the network tv version. Heavily edited, of course, but it added in a couple of interesting scenes that aren’t in the theatrical version. I’d like to see them again.
  3. Not only has it not had a region one release, it hasn’t had a region anything release since the laser disc era. At least not an authorized one.
  4. I’ve confirmed that all those songs that have supposedly prevented this from streaming thus far are all intact. I wonder what’s changed. Hopefully a Criterion release isn’t far behind.
  5. I’m fairly certain that this is a first. The times that Goodbar has been shown in the past, it has not shown up on the streaming platform. I wonder if this could auger well for a potential DVD or Blu-ray release? I certainly hope so. Seems that if they can work out streaming rights with respect to all that music, then they can work out the other digital media issues as well. Although, I haven’t actually watched it on the streaming service. I’m assuming that that music that has apparently been the issue hasn’t been stripped out!
  6. It is literally over 20 years old, and those channels have no interest in a dinosaur like that. So, thank you TCM. Keep showing more of those old movies. Maybe just not so many with Renee Zellweger.
  7. It doesn't have "absolutely nothing to do with either theatrical movies or TCM itself." There were two movies-- House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows, and they're both frequently shown on TCM. Yes, the discussion of the show may be tangential to the movies, but it does have something to do with them.
  8. I went to a Dark Shadows convention about 10 years ago, and was too frightened to speak to her. She is still very scary and very beautiful.
  9. I must mount a defense for Night of Dark Shadows. I finally read the full screenplay, and I have to say that I think the cuts and editing actually improved the movie. It’s very atmospheric, the actors are quite good, and the reordering of scenes gives it a dreamlike quality. The fact that characters refer to occurrences that the audience hasn’t seen also amps up the mystery. In response to one commenter who ridiculed the quantity of scenes that involve Angelique beckoning, let me just say that I find nothing more frightening than Lara Parker, as Angelique, beckoning. She is one scary, even
  10. St. Elsewhere should have won best drama multiple times instead of zilch.
  11. As I recall, the word was that they wanted her to come back after the pregnancy, but she wanted changes in the character, to be more complex and less naive and goody, goody. The producers wanted the same old Vicki, so it never happened.
