  1. Thanks folks for your input. But I am only ever going to watch the FREE broadcast MOVIES! channel, or see films/tv-series which are on DVD. Just have to miss: "Hunters", Al!
  2. Thanks so much for your reply. Big losers are the directors, crew, and most importantly, the STARS of these "dissolving" features. Sorry, Al Pacino, we want to view your artistry in years, decades, to come (or even THIS year), but corporate profits come first, I guess. At least we have Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers-FOREVER!
  3. Help! I don't have a streaming service, and never will. But I hate to think that all the "streamed" series will be impossible to see! Most importantly, the controversial one making headlines right now, HUNTERS. Any experts know if they will, someday, be available to everyone in dvd format? thanks !!!
  4. If you love her, you will LOVE her "film noir" starring role in THE DARK CORNER (1946). Lucy is stunning in black and white, and just about steals the film from Mark Stevens, William Bendix and Clifton Webb. Fantastic costuming, too! Lots of info on Lucy in the commentary track on the dvd!
  5. THE BIG COMBO (1955) Brian is terrific in this "noir of all noirs" - unfortunately, he has a hearing aid and his crime boss, Richard Conte, turns it against him.
  6. Thanks so much for this LINK. Other cool theories about this movie are in the mystery novel MURDER ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD, by Stuart Kaminsky, one of his series of "Toby Peters" mysteries.
  7. This film is filled with "Disney" stars. It's also a trip into 1962, just before the world changed forever. Along with that, it's a laid-back and interesting family vacation to France (Paris and the Riviera). The times change, the world changes, people change, but strangely enough, Paris never changes. This film is silly---but it's also thoughtful.
  8. Not in a movie, but..... "Timeless" (tv-series, season 2) in just about their best episode-- "The Kennedy Curse" Young Jack Kennedy is kidnapped in the time machine (for his own safety, in 1934) and brought to the present. He escapes the "time machine" bunker and runs into the night, ending up at a brightly-lit, very modern 2018 gas station/fast food store.
  9. Many women are behind the scenes in Alfred Hitchcock's films---writing the source material, be it plays, novels, or short stories: THE LODGER (1926) Marie Adelaide Belloc Lowndes DANGEROUS VIRTUE (1926) Rudolf Besier and May Edginton DOWNHILL (1927) Ivor Novello and Constance Collier (who also stars in ROPE) MURDER! (1930) Clemence Dane and Helen Simpson YOUNG AND INNOCENT (1937) Josephine Tey THE LADY VANISHES (1938) Ethel Lina White JAMAICA INN (1939) Daphne DuMaurier REBECCA (1940) Daphne DuMaurier SUSPICION (1941) Frances Iles UNDER CAPRICO
  10. Thanks for your organized "noir" list! but I think: SHACK OUT ON 101 belongs to the "Commie" noir group, along with : I WAS A COMMUNIST FOR THE FBI (also with Frank Lovejoy), WALK EAST ON BEACON, and WALK A CROOKED MILE.
  11. Yes, it's today.I love him so much! 2 movies I could watch again and again: ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and ONE, TWO, THREE.
  12. JFK is one of my fave films of all time, even without the conspiracy theories we all love so much. But the 2-disc dvd version has the most horrific English subtitles I have ever seen---incorrect, without ANY of the profanity, and just plain STRANGE. This film has one of the best scripts ever---it is tragic that the subtitles can't re-create it.
  13. FDR: D-day Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.
