  1. I have a question - in looking at the tribute the picture for Carlo Ponti looks like Ralph Richardson. Did anyone else notice?
  2. I would love for any channel to show this film. I saw it years ago on AMC. I was surprised on how funny it was. I gained a whole new view of Ann Sheridan. She was great.
  3. I would just like to second your appreciation of this great channel. You know from time to time I read a lot of griping about what the channel does or does not show. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, compared to all the other channels on cable, TCM is far, far superior. Everything is beautifully and creatively done. I look forward to more stars of the month, themes and festivals. Keep up the great work!!
  4. I would also love to see some time devoted to Mr. Roeg's films. I recall in the 70's and 80's when I went to the movies much much more than I do now, I looked forward to the release of a new Roeg film. Don't Look Now, Walkabout, Insignifiance, Castaway.... they are little works of art by a man who had a very particular way of filming and editing his pieces.
  5. One of my favorite dance scenes and one of the best was Eleanor Powell dancing to Fascinating Rythm in Lady Be Good. It is truly an amazing piece of film. Most of the scene is one long take. You can see a slightly abbreviated version in That's Entertainment Part III with a split screen that shows how the scene was filmed. It is fascinating!
  6. Everytime I see Penelope I remember my sisters taking me to the Warner Theatre in downtown L.A. to see it when it first came out. I was 7 years old. I still think the film is fun and my sister's still remember the wedding dress Natalie wore. Unfortunately, the Warner Theatre no longer exists (It was turned in a jewelry mart) but the fond memories do.
  7. I would add: Shirley Booth in Come Back Little Sheba Susan Hayward in I'll Cry Tomorrow Agnes Moorehead in The Magnificent Ambersons
  8. I would also love to see Ressurection again. This is a great film with a tremendous performance by Ellen Burstyn. I would also like to see The Night Digger with Patricia Neal. It has one of Bernard Herrmann's more unique scores using only strings and harmonica.
  9. You can't get better than Cyd Charisse dancing to "Baby You Knock Me Out" in It's Always Fair Weather and Eleanor Powell tapping through "Fascinating Rythmn" in Lady Be Good.
  10. I had never heard of I Know Where I'm Going. Earlier this year I noticed that Netflix had it so I rented it. What a delightful movie. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
  11. In my opinion, Torn Curtain is probably Hitchcock's worst film. Newman and Andrews were cast because of their huge popularity at the time but they have no chemistry whatsoever. Hitchcock chose not to film on location and therefore the film has a very fake look to it. I believe they used a grey filter to give East Germany a drab look but it just makes the film look bad. The screen play has holes galore. The scene where Newman and the farm woman kill the German agent makes absolutely no sense. Hitchcock fired Bernard Herrmann over this film when Herrmann delivered a score not to his liking
  12. I believe Mr. Guilaroff was referring to Joan Crawford and her performance in Mildred Pierce.
  13. Eleanor Parker was in a movie that I have not seen in years. It was made in 1969 and was called "Eye of the Cat". It co-starred Michael Sarrazin. It was a thriller set in San Francisco. Ms. Parker played his aunt who was an invalid. There is an incredible set piece where she is hurling uncontrollably in her wheelchair down a steep street. I believe it is a Univeral film. Does anyone remember it?
