  1. Thanks TopBilled - The film was WENT THE DAY WELL? (1942) directed by Cavalcanti and starring among others Leslie Banks. My wrap-arounds are not currently posted anywhere that I am aware of. WENT THE DAY WELL? is definitely a fun watch. I'm quite proud of the fact that screening was the TCM Premiere. The whole event was one of the happiest moments of my life. WTDW? has aired at least once since I helped introduce it. Robert Osborne intro'd it solo that time. That'll give you a general idea when it was last on.
  2. I don't ask much but as a devout long time TCM viewer and a former Guest Programmer I feel emboldened to say... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT'S HOLY PLEASE REVERT TO THE OLD FORMAT!!!! I have found NOTHING redeemable with this new change.
  3. My first memories of Conchata Ferrell was in the short lived 1975 sit-com HOT L BALTIMORE. Always funny, always welcomed in my home. I was glad I had the chance to tell her when I attended a taping of 2 and a HALF MEN. We certainly could use more like her in the world.
  4. At the end of the day you're another day older And that's all you can say for the life of the poor It's a struggle, it's a war And there's nothing that anyone's giving One more day standing about, what is it for? One day less to be living
  5. So far I find it terribly unwieldy. Doesn't look like they have any shorts listed. I liked it when it was more at a glance style for the day. Please adjust the size since only one movie listing can be seen at a time. Who was clamoring for an update? Who at TCM thought this format was a good idea and for what purpose?
  6. I don't know about rods and cones but reading all that made my eyes roll back into my head. I then fell into a colorless pit where I could see everything quite clearly.
  7. October is just around the corner. I saw the new promo TCM is running for horror movies being shown next month. I got to thinking... Maybe I'm just old fashioned. Does anyone else agree with me that horror movies are scarier in black and white? I still have a penchant for the original Universal Horror movies of the 1930's. I grew up on them in the late 60's and early 70's. When I was a kid it seemed House On Haunted Hill played endlessly on the Channel 9 Million Dollar movie out of NYC. It never failed to scare the bejesus out of me. I never got into the Hammer Horror films m
  8. It's so hard to say A & C MEET FRANKENSTEIN is my second favorite because it's so close by the thinnest of margins.
  9. My favorite of all the Abbott and Costello movies.
  10. Looks like Dorothy wasn't the only time traveler Uncle Henry and Auntie Em made a habit of helping! Charley Grapewin and Clara Blandick help an anesthetized Lee Tracy to Turn Back the Clock (1933)
  11. Got my Now Playing Guide this morning and was teased with TCM Slumberground on YouTube! Sounds verrrrry interesting!
  12. I was thinking of the great chemistry between Clark Gable and Hattie McDaniel as well as Joseph Cotton and Ethel Barrymore. I find it fascinating seeing that spark between actors who seemingly should have no real dynamic connection. It makes me wish they had made more pictures together. Do you agree with my assessment for the above named actors? Are there paired actors about whom you feel the same? I'm not talking about stars like William Powell and Myrna Loy but unusual pairings.
  13. Between shorts and features surely Leon Errol must be the KING OF RKO!
  14. Ray - You are NOT ALONE! I actually had a small bit in an episode of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION. I was hoping Paul Guilfoyle was going to be in my scene so I could talk to him about his famous relative. I quickly found I was not in a scene with him but I knew he was working that day as I saw his name on the call sheet. When my scene was over I sought him out to tell him how much I enjoyed his father, or grandfather... I wasn't sure which. When I saw his trailer door was open I knocked and he came forward. I apologized for bothering him. Told him I'd likely not have this ch
  15. Wish TCM would air WINTERSET.😊
  16. Not sure if this matters to your list but Wheeler and Woolsey made SO THIS IS AFRICA at Columbia. Their only feature outside of RKO.
  17. "There's nothing deader than a dead actor." - DeForest Kelley (Personally I think that phrase predates Kelley but couldn't find an earlier reference.)
  18. "The First Degree," a 1923 Midwestern murder mystery silent film that was thought to be lost forever, was recently discovered in a basement in Peoria, Illinois. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/long-lost-silent-film-from-1920s-discovered-in-illinois-basement/vi-BB18BWyA
  19. MEET DANNY WILSON (1951) starring Winters and Frank Sinatra would have been a nice get. Alas not this go round.
  20. At the moment this is the only night that really intrigues me. Hopefully there will be some long lost films making their TCM premieres. Lost films are my favorite part of TCM programming.
  21. Funny thing is when I saw it the other day I wasn't entirely sure I had that one in my collection. Had to check my records to be sure. Jessie Ralph was added about the same time as Mildred Natwick.
  22. Newish... She was in the group just prior to this one. As I look back it was around this time last year. Hard to believe it's already been a year.
  23. "I close the iron door behind me!"
