  1. Just logged in to relay my condolences. Somehow, I thought he was just retired and taking it easy. Very sad.
  2. She passed this morning. It never sounded good, with her having to be revived and being without oxygen for many minutes. Rest in Peace. She made the bulk of her films in the '70s and '80's which are probably now considered "classic" by most people (but not golden age of course). I wonder if they'll do an emergency edit of TCM Remembers to include her? It would be nice. 2016 seems like a bad year for celebrity deaths.
  3. I'll be frank. I haven't posted to these forums in over a year and at best I've been a spotty vistor. Years ago I had this same issue with the boards and I contacted technical support who told me they understood the isse. A bit later an option was added to allow members the option of viewing the board in the "tradtional" order i.e. oldest to newest. I log in now after everything has been "updated" and reset or whatever and this option is gone. I don't get it. Plus the layout of the boards are very busy but that's another topic. I'm kind of disappointed and suprised quite frankly, who
  4. It's uncanny -- todays star is listed on the TCM home screen is Ava Gardner but the photo show is of Hedy Lamarr. On the summer under the stars website todays star is listed as Hedy. So who is it? Somebody (webmaster?) really dropped the ball.
  5. The guitar/musical accompaniment is making this film virtually unwatchable. I don't remember this soundtrack on this film when I watched it before. What happened? Who's idea was this?
  6. Thank you Arturo for your posts. I don't know very much about Linda Darnell's career, and always wondered why she wasn't a bigger star in bigger films. Your informative posts have been very illuminating.
  7. Nice to read your post Markus. Was wondering where you were once I'd read that she'd passed. I remembered you as a Durbin expert. I agree that there were Judy fans that disparaged Deanna. I belonged to several online forums/clubs devoted to Judy and I don't remember reading more than a few posts/comments about Deanna that didn't contain some negativity. I've learned that a small subset of Judy Garland fans are a truly odd lot and I think these "fans" were insecure about how sucessful Deanna's career and her live were compared to Judy's. If one was to be honest, Deanna pretty much had her
  8. Did they photo shop the photos they show of the stars? They had to. No one could look that perfect. The photos are simply stunning. All of them. Nary a bump or blemish on any of them. I know that these are glamour shots so they're set up to look their best but wow, some of those images are otherworldy. Just gorgeous.
  9. I think cinema isn't as good as it used to be for economic reasons. Mostly kids go to the movies now so the filmakers have to cater to them. The stories and acting are bad but the technology is breathtaking. And television has fallen off a cliff so to speak, but that's a money thing too. There are hundreds of channels available so the viewers are much more fragmented. Before cable you only had 3 channels to watch new shows, and the networks had the revenue to invest in quality shows because they were going to get advertising money based on the amount of viewers. Reality shows are dirt ch
  10. I am also glad it's on a weekend. I am really disappointed in the lineup. They could have done *so* much better. No "A Date With Judy", only one of her films from the 1960's and nothing from the 70's on. This selection is *extremely* uninspired. Father of the Bride *and* Fathers little dividend? They knew she was very sick so they had time to plan.
  11. Meh. I just browsed the schedule for July and there are only a few films that interest me plus Gregory Peck isn't a favorite (a good and decent person though). It's just as well, since it's July and I'll be out trying to enjoy the all too brief summer. I'm sure I'll make up for it in August for Summer under the Stars.
  12. I do hope they get access to Universals library. They have a lot of great films that I've never seen. The Deanna Durbin films, the teenage musicals starring Donald O'connor and the great horror films. Does anyone have any info as to whether or not TCM will be negotiating with Universal for broadcast rights?
  13. They have an option on this website, that allows you to request a film be shown. It doesn't guarantee that it will be shown but I'm sure they read the requests. They also have tcmprogrammer that reads these forums and I'm sure he see's the request. I don't like everything that is being shown on TCM and when there is a film that I don't care for I either turn the channel or do something other than watch TV. I think TCM is doing a fine job considering the limitations they have to work within.
  14. I think it's so great that she's SOM and that they're showing so many films of her's that I've never seen (mostly early ones though). Has anyone here ever seen "They Knew What They Wanted", co-staring Charles Laughten? It is one of her later films and I've never seen it. I was hoping that it could be shown in October.
