  1. I recently emailed TCM to consider showing the Stanwyck film,"Remember The Night"....this is your quintessential "holiday" film that is ignored year after year. Fred MacMurray, Beulah Bondi, and Elizabeth Pattersen round out the cast. A homey holiday film.
  2. Those Universal-international films of the 50's definitely had similar AND the same music. Joseph Gershenson was music supervisor for most of Universal's films and so many of the same pieces of music were played over and over again. For example: The score announcing the creature in "Creature from the Black lagoon" played in other universal films such as "The Thing that Couldn't Die" (played every time the "head" was displayed). Universal was THE main studio for rehashing movie music from the early 30's and 40's. I guess it was to tie ALL universal films together as a "family".
  3. I have to correct MYSELF...in the film "I Married a Monster from Outer Space"...I had my Stanwyck films mixed up. The film that "I married" used music from was the Stanwyck film "No Man of Her Own"...both Paramout Pictures...DAMN I'm good!!!
  4. Either you are being naive or perplexingly defensive. Are you insinuating that we extreme movie buffs don't know what we are talking about? Just because YOU never realized that it happened frequently in the golden years doesn't mean it didn't happen. I offered you examples, why don't you check it out for yourself?...
  5. "If A Man Answers" with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin. Made about 1961 I think. Its a Universal picture...
  6. the TV movie was called "Maybe I'll Come Home In The Spring" and it definitely was starring Sally Field. The tv movie about a hippie who returns home after being away for a year also stars Eleanor Parker has her mother and Jackie Cooper as her father. The film hasn't been shown in years that I can see, but it is still relevant today. A dysfunctional family to boot!!
  7. I too, cannot even tolerate watching a single film on AMC with the commercial interruptions. I remember commercials initially started to interrupted ONCE in the middle of a film, then suddenly every 5 minutes or so. AMC also started getting films from the depths of the film pile. Films made by "Azalea pictures" like "Creatures of Destruction" and "Mars Needs Women"...I knew something was terribly wrong. Anyway, it is interesting to note that many cable channels continue to have AMC and they don't have TCM, so many lovers of the Golden years are missing out big time!!
  8. I have noticed some films also that have various "quips" here and there from other films. I think that often the film might need additional scoring for some reason or another OR the studio, to save money, might actually use "stock" music. Here is one example: In "A Place in the Sun" a quip of music was played for the post office scene with Montgomery Clift and Shelley Winters was actually from the 1946 film "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" with Barbara Stanwyck. Interesting to note that the score for "Place" was written by Franz Waxman who one an oscar for that score, and Miklos Rosza did th
  9. James (Jim)Mitchum I remember from "In Harm's Way" (a small part)...the last film listed that he was in is called "Fatal Mission" (1990)
  10. And now, for those who care: There was a very forgettable TV movie called "The Last Survivors" starring Martin Sheen and Anne Francis. Martin took over Tyrone Powers role. The only reason I remembered this film was because I am a fan of Anne Francis. (oh check out Anne's website!!)
