  1. With all the Norma Shearer fans here, I wonder if anyone knows why The Trial of Mary Dugan (MGM, 1929) has never been shown on TCM? Is it a case where the rights are tied up? Apparently it was a play. There is also a 1940 version (MGM) with Laraine Day that has never been shown.
  2. I agree with Alix. As long as these silents do exist, why doesn't TCM show them without the scores or use some of those Vitaphone scores from the films with synchronized sound? I'd love to see more Joan Crawford silents!
  3. Sabrina, How to Steal a Million has played on the Fox Movie Channel from time to time without commercials and in the original Panavision ratio. Check their website for the schedule.
  4. I agree that the FMC only shows a few good films a month when they could show many more--such as pre-1935 Fox films that exist. FMC will show a film several times in a month. However, they are pretty good about showing their Cinemascope films in their original ratio. FYI Spencer: I've seen Up the River on FMC; however, the print wasn't very good--it was scratchy and some frames must have been missing as it jumped around quite a bit. Considering Spencer Tracy made a number of films at Fox, FMC has only shown Up the River, Dante's Inferno and Me and My Gal.
  5. I taped YRR from TCM a couple of years ago and it was in letterbox. Usually TCM shows letterbox versions of movies if they were filmed that way, although Don't Give Up the Ship with Jerry Lewis was not shown in letterbox. Perhaps they're mixing their tapes up?
  6. I agree that TCM is a wonderful channel. They show films that you would never see on any other network. However, they do show certain films over and over--Casablanca, On The Waterfront, Maltese Falcon, etc. A previous poster mentioned Golden Dawn. My cable provider has had TCM since 1995 and I didn't see it until a couple of years ago. They have yet to show The Singing Fool with Al Jolson; I last saw it on TNT around 1990. I also love the precodes and wish they would show more of the films that are not availble on DVD such as Paramount and Universal films of the 1930's.
  7. Desiree will be shown on the Fox Movie Channel on Sunday, July 10 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
