  1. Just a quick grammar question: Is the plural of film noir--films noir (like sisters-in-law) or film noirs (like most plurals just add an "s" to the end)? My take is the first--films noir. When you Google it you get both. But even the Film Noir Foundation and other "experts" have used "film noirs" in their writing or have avoided the choice altogether by phrases such as "films that are noir" or just plain "noirs". What do you know about this? What do you use? And can you source your choice so we know if it's a verified use or just your own personal one? Thanks in advance. Do
  2. Sorry the link was edited out by the powers that be. But you can find the full movie at YouTube for free.
  3. Thanks. AS for your request, I wish I knew as well. I think TCM would do us all a service if they could put the name of the singer/soundtrack info on the promos; and let us know who is responsible for the creative visuals we see each month. They could run it on the bottom of the screen like the TCM "bug" I think it's called. MTV and other channels do it. We have questions about the promos every month and it just seems like it would be good info to have.

  5. Can anyone name the song and the singer of this bluesy tune that is the soundtrack for the June promo this year? I really would love to find this song and the name of the female singer; if you can help??? Pls do. Thanks.
  6. Can anyone tell me what the song/who's the singer for the April 2018 TCM promo? It's obviously a woman and it has a folky, pop vibe? Thanks in advance.
  7. what is the music used in the TCM March 2018 programming promo? Something about "shining or shine for me tonight.." couldn't get all the words but loved it and would like to find the song title and artist. Thanks for the help
  8. The Turning Point Next: story adapted from Philip K. Dick
  9. This is a favorite book of mine; only saw the movie once. would love to see it again. Hope TCM could show it sometime soon. Theroux is from Massachusetts and went to UMass/Amherst so I am particularly aware of him. I think he still lives part-time on Cape Cod.
  10. Just one more coz this is fun: If you're a woman and want to be considered sexy/desirable just take off your glasses and pull the scrunchie from your ponytail.
  11. )If a character walks into a room and carries on a conversation without waiting for a response you know that the person they are talking to is either the bad guy lying in wait or is lying dead on the floor in the kitchen. When a giant bomb explodes in a rain of fire, if you are near it you will not look back, but keep walking and will not be hurt or knocked down by the shock wave or suffer hearing damage. (Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg hysterically satirize this filmmaking rule in "The Other Guys").
  12. "The Last Wave" (1977) one of director Peter Weir's best but lesser known films. According to a TCM article, it was poorly distributed in US because, altho United Artists put up half the money, they passed on distributing it. It was finally shown by a distributor known for martial arts movies and re-titled "Black Rain". It was relegated to art house movie theaters and was called "a throw-back to the B-movies of the 30s and 40s and the dialogue is vintage RKO and Universal," by Pauline Kael of The New Yorker, "but it's hokum without the fun of hokum." She really hated it. (Although that review

  16. Bedtime for Bonzo (1951) Next: working girl (take that whichever way you want...)
  17. "I Feel Pretty" sung by Natalie Wood in "West Side Story" but she not qualified for that role musically. (Was dubbed by Marni Nixon) The part of Maria was originally played on Broadway by Carol Lawrence. Next: a famous instrumental song to which lyrics were added later. Who wrote the lyrics and who sung the song once the lyrics were added.
  18. 3.) Because of Clark Gable's inability to take off his undershirt and keep up the witty dialogue during shooting, he appeared in the undressing scene sans undershirt, making it a fashion trend among men and causing plummeting undershirt sales. Legend has it that some undershirt manufacturers tried to sue Columbia as a result.
