  2. I went to my local Wal-Mart today and found a wonderful display of the most recent editions of some great musicals for sale ($16.87). So I purchased:

     

    Carousel

    The King & I

    South Pacific

    Guys and Dolls

    West Side Story

     

    I am so excited to finally pick up these sets. They are priced at much more on Amazon. They would make great Christmas gifts!

  3. In all of the special edition releases of classic Christmas films, I can't help but think of two that were left out completely.

     

    TCM runs Holiday Affair constantly, why hasn't this been released on dvd? It is a fantastic Christmas film, one that I watch over and over again.

     

    The other that comes to mind, is Remember the Night with Barbara Stanwyck & Fred MacMurray. Now I know that Remember the Night was released through Universal/Paramount and they are notorious for neglecting their collection, but come on! That is also a great Christmas movie.

     

    Has anyone heard any rumors as to why these haven't been released? Christmas after Christmas I keep waiting, but no luck.

     

    Are there any others that you wish were on dvd?

  4. I love the cover art. I just read Jerry Lewis' book and became even more interested in the duo. I have loved their movies ever since I was a child. My 6 year old daughter loves them too. My favorites are Scared Stiff, Living It Up and You're Never Too Young. I'm glad to see that the first one will be in Vol. 1. Hopefull the other two are soon to follow!

  5. I would love to have Sunday in New York and Any Wednesday on dvd. They both star Jane Fonda and were an introduction to more sexually involved films. What I like about these is that you know what is going on without them showing everything, making them great romantic comedies. I hope TCM will show them or some company will release them on dvd.

  6. I am curious as to when or if Esther Williams and Red Skelton's movies will be released on dvd? I think these would make great boxed sets. I know that Take Me Out to the Ball Game is already available and Three Little Words will soon be released. These are the films that I am speaking of:

     

    Esther WIlliams

    Dangerous When Wet

    Skirts Ahoy!

    Thrill of a Romance

    Jupiter's Darling

    Re-release of Million Dollar Mermaid

    Duchess of Idaho

    Texas Carnival (With Red Skelton)

    Easy To Love

    Neptune's Daughter (With Red Skelton)

    Fiesta

    Easy to Wed

    On an Island With You

    This Time For Keeps

    Red Skelton

     

    Merton of the Movies

    Yellow Cab Man

    Whistling in the Dark

    Whistling in Dixie

    Whistling in Brooklyn

    The Great Diamond Robbery

    A Southern Yankee

    Show-Off

    I Dood It

    Panama Hattie

    Lady Be Good

    Watch the Birdie

    DuBarry was a Lady

     

    These were all on vhs- most are out of print now- could that mean a dvd release could come?

  7. There have been actors that have died that weren't my favorites, but TCM aired a tribute, and was appropriate, because they did contribute to the movies of the eras they show on TCM.

     

    Even though Don Knotts movies were not the calibur of Casablanca, there are still many of his films that were very funny and show the talent that he had both as a comedian and an actor. I would love to see a tribute to Don Knotts. My suggestion is, if you don't like him or his movies, just don't watch that day :)

  8. There are lots of good movies listed here. Some of the best in my opinion are

     

    Any Alfred Hitchcock film- Rear Window is the best

    Any Abbott & Costello movie- Who Done It is on of the best (Has the Who's on 1st routine)

    The Shop Around the Corner

    The Very Thought of You (Good WWII movie)

    Since You Went Away (Also good WWII movie)

    On the Town

    Blackboard Jungle

    Laura

    A Letter to Three Wives

    Meet John Doe

    Sabrina

    Singing in the Rain

    The Women

    Philadelphia Story

    High Society (remake of the above- more musical)

  9. I was at my local Walmart today and they had a retro "Hollywood Classics" dvd display. It is from Paramount, and they have lots of classics on dvd for $5.96! I'm sure that price and selection may vary, but it's still a good deal and they are definitely classics that you don't find in very many stores. They had:

     

    The Delicate Delinquent- Jerry Lewis

    The Ladies Man- Jerry Lewis

    The Disorderly Orderly- Jerry Lewis

    The Family Jewels- Jerry Lewis

    Girls, Girls, Girls- Elvis Presley

    Paradise, Hawaiian Style- Elvis Presley

    Fun in Acapulco- Elvis Presley

    Easy Come, Easy Go- Elvis Presley

    The Country Girl- Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly

    The Out of Towners- Jack Lemmon

    The Naked Jungle- Charlton Heston

    Fancy Pants- Bob Hope

    Cassanova's Big Night- Bob Hope

    The Greatest Show On Earth- Betty Hutton

    All In a Night's Work- Dean Martin & Shirley MacLaine

     

    I was glad to add most of these titles to my collection today!

  10. I am receiving e-mail after e-mail of TCM movie reminders for such movies as Berenstain Bears, and other movies that are not in the TCM library- plus the date is for April of 2003! What is going on? Why am I receiving these reminders? I've gotten about 5 or 6 nonsense reminders. It looks like someone has gotten a hold of your e-mail database and are making the e-mails look like they are from TCM.

  11. There is a tad bit of difference between TCM and Lifetime. TCM runs theatrical movies, not made for tv movies. I enjoy a certain amount of "made for tv" Christmas fluff, but only so much.

     

    About the Paramount and Universal library- how does TCM show the Universal pictures like "The Major and the Minor", "Double Indemnity" and others- is TCM renting all of those pictures? It just seemed like recently they were showing alot of Universal and Paramount pictures which made me assume that they were finally getting the rights to some good films. I'm surprised that Paramount can be so behind on their films. They have so many good ones, it's a shame that they don't get their act together and release some of these on dvd if they aren't going to show them on tv. They could make some money!

  12. Ever since I saw "Since You Went Away", Claudette Colbert has amazed me with her acting talent. I did enjoy Norma Shearer in "The Women", but Claudette handled her roles better. She could play as dramatic as the role in "Since You Went Away", or as comedic as "The Egg and I", but in all, Claudette was more believable and lovable, and that's what I like in an actor/actress.

  13. I was fairly disappointed with TCM's Christmas movies as well. They repeated many that they show throughout the year anyway ( i.e. The Shop Around the Corner, Meet Me In St. Louis and Little Women). Those are all great films, but at Christmas I like to see films that you don't see during the year. For example, I would love to see "The Christmas Wish" starring Jimmy Durante. I know that it's available on vhs and dvd, but I would still like to see it on TCM. I've also requested year after year for TCM to show the great Holiday film "Remember the Night" starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck (which is out of print at the moment) but they never show it. I believe that it is a Paramount film which AMC used to own, but I thought TCM was slowly accumulating most of AMC's Paramount and Universal library (I know they've been showing Abbott and Costello from the Universal library and Dean and Jerry from the Paramount). I wonder why these two great films can't and won't be shown at Christmas?

  14. Back when I was a child (in the 80's). Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window would often be aired on television. On the television version, there was an extra scene in which James Stewart has a dream about the conversation he and Grace Kelly just had about their futures. On the vhs and dvd version, this scene was not included. For years I tried to find out why this scene was on the tv version and not on the release version. I was told that I was "dreaming" and that the scene did not exist. I even spoke with Robert A Harris and James Katz who restored Rear Window as well as Steven Derosa, the author of the John Michael Hayes book, and none of them knew what I was talking about. Finally, the TCM movie database acknowledged this extra scene and answered my question as to why the scene was in the television version. Does anyone else remember the scene? I used to have it on tape, but has since been recorded over. It would still be there had I known that it was a rare scene! Thank you TCM for answering my question after all these years!

  15. For a man: definitely Red Skelton.Some of the films I would include are:

    Whistling in the Dark

    Whistling in Dixie

    Whistling in Brooklyn

    Texas Carnival

    The Fuller Brush Man

    Neptune's Daughter

    A Southern Yankee

    Three Little Words

    The Great Diamond Robbery

    Excuse My Dust

    Watch the Birdie

    The Yellow Cab Man

     

    For a woman: definitely June Allyson. Some of the films I would include are:

    The Opposite Sex

    Little Women

    Music for Millions

    the Reformer and the Redhead

    Woman's World

    Strategic Air Command

    The Glenn Miller Story

    Two Girls and a Sailor
