  1. That's not the way it's perceived in the US and Canada, TCM's core audience. Show that film and in one month half the cable companies in North America will have dropped TCM. For good reason, IYAM. That's also its context.
  2. It's Nazi propaganda. Save it for film school or historians. TCM has probably decided that the limit is good ol' racist American films like Birth of a Nation, with pre-screen disclaimers, shown infrequently. Given what has gone on in the US over the past few years, TCM is not going to be in the mood to show downright Nazi propaganda films, even with a disclaimer. TCM now puts disclaimers and discussions ahead of films like Gone with the Wind.
  3. The creators of "The Fugitive" deny that they based their story on Sheppard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Sheppard
  4. Clarence Brooks as the Howard Unversity-educated Haitian physician Dr. Oliver Marchand in Arrowsmith (1931). He was in only two other movies; his day job was musician. I actually read the book before seeing the movie. I was half-expecting the movie either to eliminate the character, make the character white, or turn the serious character into a bad joke. I was pleasantly surprised that not only was the character in the film, but played right as it was originally written by Sinclair Lewis.
  5. The Fixer (1966). No one seems to know who owns the rights. Made by MGM - London, but they don't own the rights. The original Swiss Family Robinson (1940) with Freddie Bartholomew. When Disney made its remake, they bought the rights to the 1940 version to suppress it. Does anyone know if there are legal reasons why Freud (1962) with Montgomery Clift is not available anywhere?
  6. And of course, Adaptation: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268126/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_1
  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madeline_and_Marion_Fairbanks
  8. From the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers: "You're All Doomed!"
  9. I shouldn't take the bait, but as I have stated earlier in this thread, I am a liberal who supports Israel. And if you think that anti-Zionists in the USA are only found among the Democrats, you haven't been paying attention to the alt-right marches that have occurred over the past 3+ years.
  10. I grew up down the street from Klinghoffer's cousins. One was a childhood friend of mine. I have no sympathy for John Adams. The murder of an American Jew is used to bash Israel. Klinghoffer was not an Israeli. The terrorists - as well as John Adams - prove that being against the existence of the state of Israel is really because they can't stand the concept that not all Jews everywhere were murdered in the Holocaust. It is a very anti-Semitic work. Oh, and I am a liberal who can't stand Netanyahu or Likud. Just like I am an American who loves America but can't stand its ruling pa
  11. The Panic in Needle Park (1971) The Super Cops (1974) Marathon Man (1976)
  12. I have a family member who went to film school. Apparently, GI is used as the prime example of how NOT to write a TV script.
