  3. WOW, apparantly nobody has either own pix, or views on this one I was certain too?
  4. However, I already wager when it comes to UNCLE OSCAR, A STAR IS BORN may only take home BEST O. SONG GOLD
  5. No matter how powe5rful *Curan's ROMA is & it certainly looks like it. I bet now it will not be remembered-(to quote *GEORGE STEVENS on his own masterpiece from 1951 A PLACE IN THE SUN) "We'll Know How Good This Picture Is In 20 Years" unquote & *Curan's absolutely perfecto 2013 GRAVITY fits that bill 100% & I';m not especially a sci-0fi fan either, except of course 2001!!!
  6. BUT BET THE FARM CLOSE WILL WALK DOWN-THE-AISLE AT THE DOBLY THEATRE & LIKELY HALL FOR SUPPORT
  7. & TROY_(his name from WINONA'S fun 1994 REALITY BITES) has actually been nommed 4 times to date overall, am I correct?
  8. NOTICE TO JAKEEM & THE REST! Are you positive STAN & OLLIE will get a January 2019 nation wide release & not be pushed off to dvd/cable???
  9. Hate to brag & of course the OSCARS are not over, but just from studying it's trailers over 2 or more months ROMA just bled OSCARS! But now, (I've yet to go & see it as yet, but hope to) GREEN BOOK may be THE DARK HORSE no pun intended pal
  10. (*-always an ACADEMY (AMPAS) AWARD winner) I posted this a couple months ago, then the site had a huge overall & it got deleted somehow??? The American Film Institute-(AFI)-(EST: 1967-) conducted another all-time great pol, though unlike most it was not televised or even given much credit this time out? (2008 poll) "AFI's Top 10 for 10"-(meaning in these genres listed below & several are missing?) AFI voted on the top ten greatest films in each given film genre) (ALERT AGAIN, I may get cut off before concluding again though???) ANIMATION: 1.
  11. History has it that all D.W. Griffith, *De Mille & others were further west & there was a massive rainstorm, so they went west instead
  12. Laemme was arguably thee very first true MOVIE MOGUL Paramount Pictures was established in 1909 & is still the oldest working DREAM FACTORY-(P.S. I was lucky enough on all 3 vacations to literally stay a stone's throw away from not only it, but the old RKO Radio) (NOTE: Now typically of whats left of an empire called HOLLYWOODLAND, they plan to now demolish that legendary RKO Globe???) However, Thomas (Alva) Edison-(l847-l931) started it all, but in Menlo, NJ
  13. NO MATTER WHAT, NO LITTLE GAL CAN REPLACE NATALIA IN THATPIVOTAL ROLE MY ACTUAL "ALRERNATE OSCAR" WINNERS FOR 1947 ARE> Best Film: Miracle on 34th street (Fox) Actor: *Edmund Gwenn in "Miracle on 34th Street" Actress: Deborah Kerr, "Black Narcissus" S. Actor: Richard Widmark, "Kiss of Death"-(barely over Ryan in "Crossfire") S. Actress: Marjorie Main, "The Egg and I" & BD: David Lean for "Great Expectations"
  14. what do you think of both the tv movie rehash & the ';94 remake with *Attenborugh?
  15. Good but majority of places always cited him as being bornin 1940 though?
  16. 100% but he though the was making a darn fool of himself when portraying Manuel Fedillo, especially after *Joan Crawford saw him on the then 200 acre lot of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer & quipped "Oh My God, It's Harpo Marx' unquote
  17. OBVIOUSLY YIUR A BIG *BING FAN, huh? What are your favs of his? & despite all the millions, upon millions of other songs since then his rendition-(1st used in the better 1942 picture (***) HOLIDAY IN (Paramount) & not what most think, not from the more $Box-0ffice$ friendly1954 film titled WHITE CHRISTMAS(**) That song is still thee single biggest selling record of all-time! AND I MUST ASK YOU THIS ONE, GIVEN *THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD: FRANCIS (Albert) SINATRA (l9l5-l998) IS Y CLOSE ALL-TIME RUNNER-UP HERO & IDOL, WHAT DO YOU THINKOF HIM???
  18. Knew it would be to easy But I must pose the question, did Montgomery deserve that 1937 nomination? Especially when the official contenders were> *Spencer Tracy in Captains Courageous=-(most pundits were easily forecasting previous winner *Muni for Zola to be the first to win 2nd consecutive Best Actor victories though &not *Spence the following year for Boys Town-(A RECORD IN THE CATEGORY LASTING 56yrs UNTIL TOM HANKS tied it in 1993 & 1994 respectively) Paul Muni in Life of Emile Zola(did win NY Film Critics award) Charles Boyer in Conquest Fredric March in A
  19. STILL KEEP JOING US TCM-ITES PLEASE!!! THANK YOU FOR PUTTING "THE LOVE OF MY LIFE" (since I was only 15 in 1980, full year before she went away) NATALIA NOKOLAEVNIA ZHAKHERENO-(Natalie Wood's) marvelous shot up there & in blazing color, only 8 at the time, she didn't steal it, but was 2nd best to *Oscar winner *Edmund Gwenn-(l875-l959) of in realty truly deserved to be in the Best actor race instead that year? It was aroiund this time Natalie was doing anoither quickjie production for *Zabnuck & Fox when a bridge broke & again as she later always said it "No Ma
  20. (TRIVIA TO NOT ONLY DARGO BUT ANY OTHERS & WITHOIUT LOOKING IT UP SPORTS FANS, PLEASE: What was R. Montgomery's only other nomination?)
  21. I recall The All-American Boy & is pretty good (**1/2) *Oscar winning Jon Voight (l938-) is current terrific on a terrific tv series on Showtime RAY DONOVAN. & I don't like many current tv shows myself. Besides COMING HOM$E his was utterly brilliant & almost unrecognizable in '85's great Adventure RUNAWAY TRAIN-(another nod) & that brings us back to HOLLYWOOD VS. BOXING to date he's snagged his 4th nomination for s. actor this time as Howard Cosell in 2001's ALI ($58m.) TO ALL KEEP'M COMIN & AS I PREVIOUSLY SAID, I ONLY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE ON BOXING/CIN
  22. ALRIGHT DARGO! another good in put, but is it a Fantasy or Fight Film? Like *Warren Beatty's wonderful-(to me since I was a kid) 1978 HEAVEN CAN WAIT is that a Fantasy or a Football flick? (NOTE: To all others in case you don't know yet & don't get confused 1943's Fantasy HEAVEN CAN WAIT w/*Don Ameche-(GEE, I only got to see his chair on my 8hrs on the 1984-(summer) COCOON set unfortunately, he & Brimley & Cronyn were shooting elsewhere that day GO-FIGURE! But I was still studying history of cinema & wasn't yet familiar with *Ameche & didn't know why all the elderly ladi
  23. By the way in My Own "ALTERNATE OSCAR CHOICES" I chose Donlevy in Beau Geste as Best Supporting Actor for that legendary cinematic year of 1939! His sole shot too. Official winner of course was the great, great character actor *Thomas Mitchell in Stagecoach, it didn't hurt that Mitchell was in (3) other heavyweight releases that pivotal year though My own favorite work by *T. Michell-(l892-l962) is in *Ford's superb 1940 Adventure LONG VOYAGE HOME (UA) though if you pay attention he has most screen time & not a 33yr old *DUKE WAYNE (TRIVIA: Eugene 0'Neil loved that adaptation more then any
