  1. Sorry I haven't answered in such a long time. I haven't had time to even check the message boards in quite a while. As far as the emoticons, I can't really help you there. I don't use them very often myself, so I don't know much about them. Sorry.
  2. Ellie, you're not old, you're just well seasoned. Now then, about the emoticons . . . Go to Yahoo! home page and type in the word "emoticons" in the search line. On the results page, there should be a link that reads, "Learn how to make Yahoo! emoticons." Click on that and it will show what you need to type to get different characters. Enjoy! B-) This is one of my favorites. I call him "Too Cool to Drool"!!
  3. Can't think of a movie title, but this clue sounds like my life!!!
  4. gwtw, I guess 1973 (Gosh, that's the year I graduated from high school!!)
  5. Okay, I'm back. Couldn't get back sooner because my 4 month old granddaughter was here. She demands undivided attention. (And of course, she gets it!!) I figured the most logical way to progress is for the person guessing the correct year to post the next list. Other than that, I didn't have any specific rules in mind. As long as the progression makes sense and we can keep up with it. Oh, of course, path was right--1955!! BTW--The movie I was watching was Blood Alley. Just got it on DVD!
  6. Okay, I got this idea the other night as I was watching one of my favorite movies. I found that the movie was released the year I was born. Think you can identify the year of my birth by a list of some of the movies released that year? If you're interested, then give it a try!! The first to guess correctly can add a list of his/her own. Okay, in no particular order, here goes . . . Mister Roberts Blood Alley The Seven Year Itch Oklahoma East of Eden The Trouble with Harry Bad Day at Black Rock Marty To Catch a Thief The Rose Tattoo Not a bad year, movie-wise!! I listed 10 movies from my birth year, but any one else should feel free to list as few or as many as you'd like!
  7. I believe no self respecting "great actor" list could be complete without WALTER MATTHAU! He was such a CHARACTER! He could play comedy roles to perfection. But that wasn't the limit of his talents. Oh, I'm not good at calling film titles to mind, but he had several dramatic roles in which he excelled. He could play characters that you wanted as friends, or those that you loved to hate. I like the Grumpy Old Men movies, but I guess one of my favorite Matthau movies is "The Sunshine Boys," which he did with George Burns. Anyhow, in my humble opinion, no list of "great actors" would be complete if it did not include WALTER MATTHAU!!! Oh, BTW, I agree that Mickey Rooney is one of the greatest. After all, an actor's purpose is to be entertaining. And in whatever "vehicle" he acted, Mr. Rooney was entertaining!
  8. fuster, I like that description of yourself -- TCM junkie. If my husband were to hear that, he'd agree that's my affliction as well. When I'm home, I have the TV on and tuned to TCM. Even if I don't have time to sit and watch a movie, I have TCM tuned in so I can listen to it and catch glimpses. Most of the films are like old friends -- they're so familiar, I know what they're going to say before they say it, and I know I can always count on them to give me a lift when I need one!! Oh, and as the others have responded, the only time I have a problem with the picture is during bad weather when all of the satelite channels are messed up.
  9. Okay!!! kenwalk got it. Well, you both got it, but he beat you by a minute. This was fun!! Okay, I pass the torch . . .
  10. Okay, I'm going back a month or so. But in response to stoneyburke, I want to add -- AMEN!!! I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're exactly right. I don't think Robert Mitchum was the most handsome actor on the screen. But man, did he have PRESENCE!!! (Well, he did come close to most handsome in HEAVEN KNOWS, MR. ALLISON) Animal magnetism. . . Yes, I think that's it exactly!
  11. Nope. Thought I gave this one away with the 2nd clue. Clue #4 Doris Day
  12. Great movie, but not the one. Clue #3 Pawn shop
  13. "Lovely to Look At" was a remake of "Roberta" with Fred Astaire playing Huck. Also starred Irene Dunne, Randolph Scott and Ginger Rogers. )
  14. If no one objects, I'll try one. Clue #1 jazz trumpet
  15. How do you put the emoticons in your posts?
  16. Hey thomasterryjr, I have to admit I've never seen Chicago. I don't know how others feel about it, but I consider Grease a classic. And, I might add, I love it. Watch it all the time!! Even my husband likes that one. Last year, (or maybe it was year before last, I forget) my sister and I went to the BIG CITY (Little Rock, Arkansas--we live in a lovely rural community about 100 miles from there). Anyhow, we were there to see the stage version of Grease produced by Frankie Avalon. It was tons of fun!!! Obviously since it was a stage production, the story line was slightly different. But all of the songs from the film were included in this production. Of course, Frankie Avalon played Teen Angel, as he did in the movie. After the curtain calls, he came out and sang and talked to the audience. One of the best nights of entertainment we've enjoyed in a while. Oh, and just last month we went to see 42ND STREET, again, in Little Rock. Tap dancing Nirvana!! Anyway, to tie this in with the thread of this forum, I enjoyed these stage productions so much more because of having first seen them on film!! Now I can hardly wait to see the film verstion of 42ND STREET again!
  17. lolite, Great list . . . well, lists. I can't believe I forgot FUNNY GIRL! Thanks for the reminder. P.S. One of my favorite lines from that movie . . . "What are they gonna do? Shoot the shwans? These lovelies?" I love the way she said that!!!
  18. harvey, There is a device that is supposed to filter out profanity from any program which has closed captions. It's supposed to work on vhs, dvd or TV. I don't have one of the boxes, but I know people who do. I've heard them claim that it works. I typed "tv guardian" into Yahoo! search and several sites were listed. You might try that for more info on the devices. I believe you could probably purchase one at Walmart.
  19. Whew!! That was exhausting but interesting reading. I went back to the original post and could hardly believe this topic was started TODAY! Anyhow, just wanted to say that I agree with Lux0786. There are more than enough stations that show modern movies, with or without profanity and/or nudity. I'd like to see TCM stick to classics that aren't readily available anywhere else. Oh, and a suggestion to indianbear10. Have you tried one of the TV guardian boxes that filter out profanity? I don't believe the guardian boxes "dress" nude people, but at least it would spare you from being "ambushed" by profanity. Just a friendly suggestion. )
