  1. Eleanor Powell - Her smile lights up a room. Her dancing is absolute perfection and I find it exhilarating. I can't take my eyes off of her. A lot of her dances are on YouTube and I'd be embarrassed to admit how many times I've watched them, and I'll continue to do so. She's the greatest anti-depressant I've ever had. She's gorgeous, mesmerizing, and glorious.
  2. I know I shouldn't do this, but what the hell. In my view "Strict adherence to fundamentalist religious dogma (of all stripes) is the root of all evil on this planet". The human population would be carrying around a whole lot less shame, guilt, paranoia, superstition, stupidity, and hate if the world were freed from the chains of religion. I'm an atheist and damn proud of it. Let the diatribe begin. Bob C.
  3. I first became aware of Yma back in the late 70's when I went over to a friends house, smoked some killer weed, while he (a true music aficionado) put an LP of hers on the hi-fi. It was a transporting and transcendent evening listening to Yma and her unbelievably wide ranging voice while we sat there transfixed, eating popcorn and doing shots of Wild Turkey. What a great evening. I've been a fan of Yma's ever since. Bob C.
  4. I agree that the film is good, but this is a title that TCM ought to put under wraps for about a year as it seems to be scheduled every other month. I haven't watched it for a couple of years because I've just had my fill of it. Along with a few other TCM favorites which get repeated and repeated and repeated. We all know which ones they are. Bob C.
  5. I found the film mediocre at best, but Ellen Parker was absolutely radiant. What a stunningingly beautiful woman. It's too bad she didn't have a longer career. I'm going to put in a request for another showing so I can tape it. Yeah, I REALLY was blown away by her. Bob C.
  6. Kyle, Yes, I'll be around. Let it get messy. We can take it and dish it out with the best of them. The Aim of an Argument ... should not be victory, but progress. - Joseph Joubert (1754-1824) Bob C.
  7. Hey Ask, you remind me of a good George Carlin quote"Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!?. Hello Kyle in Hollywood. You are of course correct about the bankruptcy act. It's a bankers wet dream. I must admit this thread is a little more interesting than the usual "What's your favorite Katherine Hepburn movie?".BS, which is why I go on long sabbaticals from this forum. Bob C.
  8. All of you Bush (i.e: the village idiot) apologists please read carefully: Everything that is psoted by myself & the Celluloid kid regarding Bush's resume is 100% verifiable to anyone who cares to do some real time research. Of course I realize that you right wing wackos really don't bother with facts because it might interfere with your ludicrous dogma, so please feel free to turn your attention back to ' Faux news' and get even stupider than you already are. And boy, is that ever monumentally STUPID ! Bob C.
  9. George W. Bush's Resume Past work experience: Ran for congress and lost. Produced a Hollywood slasher B movie. Bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas, company went bankrupt shortly after he sold all his stock. Bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using tax-payer money. With father's help (name and money) was elected Governor of Texas. Accomplishments: Changed pollution laws for power and oil companies and made Texas the most polluted state in the Union. Replaced Los Angeles with Houston as the most smog-ri
  10. Laurel & Hardy are good for a few hours, but after that, it becomes repetitive and tiresome. 24 hours straight is MUCH too long. Personally I would just as soon TCM drop their "summer under the stars" programming. It too has become old and stale. While I'm on a roll, "The Essentials" can leave without a tear being shed by me. There are no more essential films to see. None. They've done them all. Now they just keep repeating themselves. If they were to introduce some foreign films into the essentials category I wouldn't be writing this. There's plenty of great foreign films that could be vi
  11. Without question for me it's 2001 A Space Odyssey. For the first time viewer, the final 20 minutes are a transcendent experience. Even with repeated viewing's (I'd be embarrassed to tell you how many times I've seen it) it still excites and startles the senses. A film I will never, ever grow tired of watching.
  12. Cyd Charisse is one of the most gorgeous creatures that's ever walked on the planet. For me, any argument ends there.
  13. I would really like to see TCM (or anyone for that matter) show Monte Hellman's early 70's classic Two Lane Blacktop. I don't know whatever became of that film. As good as Warren Oates was in Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, he was even better in this.
  14. The luminescent and extraordinarily charismatic Gong Li. For the uninitiated, watch Raise the Red Lantern and you will be transfixed by her hypnotic face. Isabelle Adjani (who I wish would make more english speaking films) is a distant second.
  15. I'd like to be a member of the Wild Bunch and die in a hail of balletic slow motion bullets.
