  1. I believe the hosting duties are being handled by film critic David Edelstein. He filled in for a week during RO's hiatus two years ago and many members here enjoyed his presence and presentations.
  2. MissWonderly, You will see in the display posted below the reason I choose to be very selective about how I participate in these Forums. Why draw undue attention to myself when some are looking for a reason to be rude and insulting. I don't even have to put a target on my back. Apparently It is already there with multiple arrows in it! It seems Mr. DeWitless would like it if I disappeared forever. He would like all the apologists to go away so that he can let his caustic commentary go by unnchallenged. JohnnyGeetar thought the same thing. I am not watching every movie shown on
  3. From what I am reading here, there seems to be a lot of exagerration, rumor and falsehoods being written about the contents of the Deen deposition. http://tv.yahoo.com/news/deen-says-she-used-slur-doesnt-tolerate-hate-201623708.html --------------------------------- According to a transcript of the deposition, filed Monday in U.S. District Court, an attorney for Jackson asked Deen if she has ever used the N-word. "Yes, of course," Deen replied, though she added: "It's been a very long time." Asked to give an example, Deen recalled the time she worked as a bank teller in s
  4. First, _all_ the introductions were going to reference the theme. In last night's case, that's _four_ intros about Mamie Van Doren. I can't say that she was being slighted if the outros focused on a different topic from the particular film that was just shown. Makes sense to me to speak about other co-stars, etc. instead of returning to the "star" with the four intros for the night. Second, don't forget that there is a BIG website here and TCM typically provides a very good selection of articles, etc. for most high profile week-night events -- like last night's. http://www.tcm.com/
  5. *"In his second decade, too often sounded to me as if he was trying to imitate Bugs Bunny."* - clore I take it you've seen *The Earl Of Chicago* then. I am kinda glad Cummings was cast in *Saboteur*. It gave me a reason to think of him as a genuine movie star. And the film, along with *Foreign Correspondent*, are pretty indestructible pieces of war propaganda. I wonder if Young could have pulled off *Suspicion* ? .
  6. Re: *The Sea Wolf* "Jack London's novel THE SEA WOLF has inspired at least nine film versions with the first one, produced in 1913, remaining the most faithful to the book. Other renditions include the 1920 version with Noah Beery in the Wolf Larsen role, a 1926 version starring Ralph Ince, a 1930 remake featuring Milton Sills, a version entitled *Barricade* (1950) with Raymond Massey, Wolf Larsen (1958), a pet project of actor Sterling Hayden which starred Barry Sullivan, *Larsen: Wolf of the Seven Seas* (1975), an Italian production with Chuck Connors in the title role, and a made-for-TV
  7. *" hasn't the charisma of a Flynn, Bogart, Gable or Power, but he is engaging."* - clore Funny. For awhile now I was thinking of posting a thread discussing the thought I had that Robert Young, Robert Cummings and Robert Montgomery were pretty much interchangeable -- with Montgomery probably benefitting from the length of time he was at MGM. Maybe Young couldn't have been a convincing Joe Pendleton, but I do think that any of the three could have been substituted for the others in most of their films.
  8. Nope. AIn't gonna do it. I will not let you put the onus on an OP or other members to come in and reorient a (new) thread after some have effectively written graffiti all over it. Most children stopped writing their name in fresh cement by age 13.
  9. *"Sometimes with o'brienmundy the course never gets started (I know that feeling) Not every thread comes alive, that's pretty common here."* - Hibi That's true. But 'obreinmundy's' "Schoolgirl Crushes" post was "crushed" in just TWO MINUTES after being posted.
  10. *"The balance between those who want to continue the original conversation and those who want to have fun usually gets lost quickly."* - lzcutter And sometimes the conversation can't even get started. http://forums.tcm.com/thread.jspa?threadID=169781&tstart=0 My sympathies to 'obrienmundy.'
  11. There's lots of Burns and Allen on YouTube -- including the wonderful Vitaphone short "Lambchops". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPhmNhO7dRw&list=PL2E35D5ECCDD6A931
  12. What a thoughtful surprise! Of all the reasons to make the day notable, I think my birthday falls far below both Father's Day and "Bloomsday" on the "red-letter" scale. Still, it was very special to be celebrated in this way. Thanks to you all! Kyle
  13. While the term "****" may have contributed to the edit of the line, I can also believe that the line was abridged simply because it dated the film to the few months after Pearl Harbor. By the middle of the war or the end of the war, the "sneak = ****" meme was probably replaced with different descriptions or comparisons. Or ones that may have been much more timely. And if the edit was done towards the end of the war -- or afterwards, it may have been done to end any lingering anti-Japanese sentiment being directed toward Japanese Americans more than out of the term being offensive.
