  1. I'm cheating a bit here, this is from a stage musical instead. A US/Russian chess rivalry. with Murray Head playing "The American". One Night in Bangkok actually was a big hit in the US. Number 3 on the singles chart.
  2. The Time for Love is Any Time, from Cactus Flower Moonraker, from Moonraker all of the songs from Welcome to LA Be Kind to My Mistakes, from Castaway Love Hates, from Tuff Turf Play it Again, from the Tamarind Seed We’ve Never Danced, from Made in Heaven I could go on all day
  3. It seems odd that none of your best directors directed any of your best films
  4. Yes. It’s the transformation of CBS All Access, and it will feature Paramount films, presumably old and new, along with CBS Viacom offerings and other tidbits.
  5. I wonder if they will be harder to obtain once Paramount plus is launched next week.
  6. I really wish TCM would show The Lost Man from 1969.
  7. I think it probably has to do with the Will and Grace tribute to Lucy. Messing was spot on perfect. She might not be first choice to play Lucille Ball, but she’s a perfect Lucy Ricardo.
  8. Actually, it was remade in 2018 with Anna Faris, but the genders were switched, so that sort of proves your point.
  9. Sounds exactly like the twilight zone episode called it’s a good life, with Billy Mumy. It was remade in the movie with Kathleen Quinlan. Only caveat, in both cases it was a young boy, but the situation sounds exactly the same.
  10. It’s available on Blu Ray. Great quality. Great film. Tour de force by Ms. Rigg. I bet she had fun doing it.
  11. Confirmed. The late 80s vhs does indeed reveal a bit of male genitalia when the nude actor greets Jacy at the pool party. More half than full frontal, but the camera definitely ranges a few inches lower than the dvd.
  12. I completely disagree. I watch TCM specifically to see films from the 60 s and 70s, and I’m thrilled with their selections. From my standpoint, though, they show way too much from the 40s and earlier. To each his own.
  13. Interesting that TCM blew up the image the other night when the guy got out so we didn't see below his waist, but not the girl. We'll assume that's because it was still in prime time... But so much for the uncut part of "uncut and commercial free" (and, yeah, that can be a double entendre). I didn’t see it in its original run, so I’m not sure if your memory is correct, but the official dvd release is cropped the same as what TCM showed, so I don’t think you can blame them for censorship. They just showed what’s currently available.
  14. Chariots of Fire was a much bigger upset. No one saw that one coming. Most prognosticators thought 1917 would win, but most of them also said that Parasite could be a spoiler. And it was.
  15. If you’re a fan of Nicholas Clay sans clothing, there’s quite a difference.
  16. FYI, the version of The Night Digger shown last night appears to have been the longer version from the DVD , rather than the truncated version previously shown by TCM
  17. I just watched the TCM preview of upcoming Christmas movies that follows Career Girls, and Christmas in Connecticut was definitely included.
  18. My provider is Comcast, and I use TiVo to record and then offload movies to a hard drive. Plex then indexes them and let’s me stream them at will. There’s a Plex app for TiVo, Appletv, Roku and more. So far the pop ups have been not that annoying now that I know where they’re coming from. I don’t know whether an upgrade to the paid Plex subscription might make them go away.
  19. I dvr a lot of movies off of TCM and store them on a hard drive. Plex is an app that lets me stream them to my tv.
  20. Through the process of elimination, I have determined that the culprit is in fact Plex, and not TCM. So my apologies to AT&T. I don’t pay Plex anything, so I guess I can’t get too upset. It hasn’t happened very often so far.
  21. Yes, I do. It’s similar to the TCM logo when it pops up, but a good bit bigger. I’ve only watched about 10 minutes of the movie so far, so it happened in that interval. I was streaming a recording I made the other night using Plex, so it’s possible they inserted it, although I use Plex a lot and have never seen that before. I’ll continue to investigate.
  22. I just noticed a pop up ad for STARZ and the season premiere of Outlander during Radio Days. Thank you, but no thank you, AT&T.
  23. The Haunting (The original one, of course), The Innocents, Night of Dark Shadows, Don’t Look Now, The Hunger, and The Tenant
