  1. French actor Gaspard Ulliel dead in skiing accident at 37 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/19/entertainment/gaspard-ulliel-death-ski-accident-scli-intl/index.html
  2. 2 - With the twirling stars. 1936-1947 3:05 in the video below.
  3. I REFUSE to accept THE GODFATHER is 50 years old. THE GODFATHER is timeless!
  4. Dwayne Hickman, TV's girl-crazy 'Dobie Gillis' star and former CBS executive, dies at 87 https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/dwayne-hickman-tvs-girl-crazy-dobie-gillis-star-and-former-cbs-executive-dies-at-87/ar-AASB4Gz?li=BBnb7Kz They're dropping like flies!!!
  5. Every time I see something about the repetitious screenings I remember I've been watching TCM for close to 30 years. And likely have seen nearly all of the library titles by now. Every once in a while a rare title screens which actually surprises and delights me. The Big Punch (1948) was one such recent title. Likely never having been screened for at least the last 14 years. The major problem regarding the repetition of titles, seems to me, is that TCM never had a real viability plan to delve deeper into the vaults of FOX, UNIVERSAL and subsequently PARAMOUNT. Nor has TCM gone into
  6. I'm sure there are a lot of people at TCM who feel this site is, "SOOOOO last century"! Which is ironic since 99% of their content is also, "SOOOOO last century"!
  7. Same here but I'll will NEVER! Yes, I said NEVER go to Facebook or Twitter...
  8. Man, only a week in to the new year and we've already lost some really heavy hitters. Poitier will likely get the last spot for TCM Remembers 2022!
  9. I loved when he would drop in his impressions of actors and directors during a story.
  10. A great loss of an artist, raconteur and film historian. Paper Moon was a huge hit to this once 13 year old boy who loved anything about the 1930's. What a great treat to meet him many, many years later just long enough to tell him so.
  11. So Ben introduced the first Kay Francis movie. Without any mention from Ben, Karger introduced the next two. Karger's wrap-up on the third film of the evening was edited down at the end indicating a switch in programming was made. Which seems likely since it was early enough for the fourth film to have wrap-arounds but didn't. Not important, of course, but I found it kind of interesting as I'd never seen anything like this before.
  12. I return every day to TCM more from force of habit and a love for old movies than I do for brand loyalty anymore. Sadly I feel the TCM I came to know and love is gone forever. Kind of like original Coke. It says Coke but somehow it just doesn't taste the same. Things change. Times change. You grow up and move on. You miss those years of going to the beach every summer with your folks when you were a kid. The beach is still there but now you think about those times with nostalgia. Going there now can never recapture those earlier times. Other people are enjoying that same beach like
  13. Check my earlier post with the video included.
  14. A very lovely and fun loving lady with a beautiful spirit. Her late husband was the director E. W. Swackhamer.
  15. I couldn't agree more. I've said that's an awful lot of set for one person to stand in front of. It would be funny (to me anyway) if there were people sitting at that big table and he got up to introduce a movie and then sat back down with this guests. Or if Eddie Muller came by and took a book off the shelf and kept walking. The only other thing is we know they're not watching the movie the same time as us. They should stop suggesting they do or else have the movie playing in the background while all the guests are there! 😁
