  1. Not bad for his first film. He was a film critic and thought he could do better. I think it is also his best film but there are a few I haven’t yet seen.
  2. I think this is one of the reasons some young people are put off by older films. Being B&W or silent is their first reason (or excuse), but the acting plays a role (pun intended). After Brando and the whole Actor’s Studio movement changed the craft, some older film acting looks almost campy in comparison.
  3. I think that is what they were doing. The Searchers has a long history as an example of racism in what is considered a great film. To show this film and provide extra context and information is the opposite of cancel culture. Information not opinion. If you don’t see the racism, that’s fine, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. What about the Mickey Rooney character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Do you see it there?
  4. Having black bars on 2 sides is common and expected as long as everything looks proportional. If you have black bars on all 4 sides then you should be able to fix that by pressing the FORMAT or SIZE button on your remote. Usually, you just keep pressing that button to cycle through all your options. The name of the button and the settings will vary but should be there.
  5. I’d start with this free course of video lectures. It’s been a while since I watched it, but it was very good. I’ve read many film studies textbooks and numerous documentary series I could recommend, but this is free and quite good. https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/literature/21l-011-the-film-experience-fall-2013/
  6. We will miss her here in her home town. Cloris would often come back to Iowa to help raise money on a local telethon. Great lady.
  7. Starting a week or so ago I started not being able to read the postings. I can see the titles but when I click on them, nothing is there. This is on an iPad using Safari. If I use Chrome, it works. I can’t be the only one can I?
  8. HBO Max has some classic content curated by TCM. It’s not as good as the full channel, but I doubt it will ever be offered as a standalone service https://www.hbomax.com/hub/classics-curated-by-tcm
  9. Awesome! I have been debating buying the blu-ray of this and am happy to see it on TCM along with the films. In this documentary, Mark does not do much if any of the narration so that should be good news for all those with a problem with his voice.
  10. I think all the TCM hosts are great. Alicia is the real deal and if you read her books or listen to her Podcasts I think anyone would agree. Robert will always be missed and will never be replaced but I think the team in place right now is terrific.
  11. So, does anyone ever respond to messages in these technical forums or is it just for show?
  12. I posted a message in the General Discussion forum and then remembered this forum existed. Safari used to work fine with the old forums but does not work well now. Most things need to be double-clicked and occasional preview windows show up with a single click. Chrome on IOS works as expected as far as I can tell from what little I tested.
  13. I wondered the same thing. Chrome on iPad behaves much better than Safari, but Safari used to work just fine here. As a programmer myself, I’m all too aware that writing web pages that work perfectly on all browsers can be a challenge but I thought the modern frameworks had solved most of those issues.
  14. Can the layout be tightened up a bit too? Lots of empty space and only 5 forums fit on a page now where there were probably a dozen before.
  15. Is anyone else having difficulty navigating the forums since the change? I always use my iPad and find that simply clicking a forum or a message isn’t enough and I have to click again. On messages, a single click will sometimes bring up a small preview screen of the message. I never had these issues before. I even had to double-click the Start New Topic button to post this. Is it just me?
