  1. I hear you, Markfp2. It's not that I made a conscious decision not to watch anything later than 1949. It's just that there's something about the movies made up until then that are very appealing to me. I think it's all about the glamour and innocence of the movies then. I agree that there were some very good films made later than 1949, but I always seem drawn to the earlier ones.
  2. I actually forgot to mention Errol when I listed my opinion of sexiest men in movies. What an oversight on my part!! Of course he was a wonderful actor as well. I also bought the signature collection when it came out. Although not in the collection, I would have to say that Objective Burma would have to be my favorite movie of his. Next would have to be They died with their boots on. Over the summer I read his autobiography, My wicked wicked ways. That has to be the funniest book I have ever read. True or not, it is exceptionally entertaining!
  3. I have to second MattHelm. Scrooge from Brooklyn??? I can't see it. How about Michael Caine as Scrooge?
  4. I so agree with Wayne. The 1951 version of A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim is the best version ever made. It is a little darker than the version playing on TCM this month and definitely brings home the message of redemption so much better. Somebody please help me. I know a Christmas Story is a classic, but I don't get it. I don't find it funny at all (except the Chinese restaurant scene). I could do without this "classic" for the rest of my Christmas's Also on my top 5 are White Christmas, The Bishop's Wife, It's a Wonderful Life and the animated Santa Claus is coming to town.
  5. There are so many handsome male actors today. My favorites are Kevin Costner (still!), John Cusack and Jude Law. But none of them can come close to the stunningly gorgeous Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper or Cary Grant. These men light up the screen like nobody's business. As far as the females: Catherine Zeta Jones is so beautiful but she can't act. The closest to beauty and talent today would have to be Kate Winslet. Again,there is no comparison to the beauty and acting ability of Norma Shearer, Myrna Loy, Claudette Colbert or Greer Garson. Of course that's only my opinion.
  6. Does any one know of a way to see a movie schedule by the year it was released? I only seem to enjoy movies made up to 1949. I guess this is what was referred to as "the Golden Age".
  7. YOU ALL SEEM SO KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT CLASSIC MOVIES. I AM JUST DICOVERING THEM. AS A THIRTY-SOMETHING THAT'S FED UP WITH WHAT'S OFFERED TODAY, I NOW KEEP MY TV SET TO TCM. SO MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME. DURING CRIME WAVE WEEK A MOVIE WAS SHOWN THAT I BELIEVE WAS THE ORIGINAL MOVIE THAT WAS REMADE AS THE MALTESE FALCON. ALTHOUGH I LOVE HUMPHREY BOGART, I ACTUALLY THINK THIS MOVIE WAS BETTER. MORE OF THE STORY WAS EXPLAINED. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE AND LET ME KNOW WHY IMPORTANT PARTS WERE CUT OUT IN THE H.B. VERSION? BE PATIENT WITH ME, I'M LEARNING.
  8. TCMprogrammer - Is that all for A & C this year?
  9. No, unfortunatly that's not it. The Bagel Street Routine was Lou looking for the Susquahanna(sp?)Hat Company. Which was in fact extremely funny. It had to be in one of their movies like Who Done It? But I don't think it was that one.
  10. Wow Classics, I thought I had seen them all. I don't remember seeing that scene in any of their movies. I DO, however, remember a routine that Lou does where he says "Slowly, I turn", but I'm not sure where that is from either. Hopefully someone else has a better memory than me. BTW, it is great to know that there are others who enjoy Bud and Lou as much as I do. Thanks TCM fans. I also love the Bowery Boys and though I have seen them from time to time on TCM, I'd love to see more.
  11. I am so glad that TCM ran the movies of Abbott and Costello last night! I grew up watching them on Sunday mornings and became a huge fan. I have almost all of their movies and watch them over and over again. Hurray TCM! I hope there are many others out there who feel the same as I do and I hope to see more of them on TCM in the future.
