  1. Any of these guys. What an unfunny show.
  2. Don Knotts- I've always thought he was a giant dork.
  3. Thanks, Larry. I bet that is it. I remember she was very adamant that it was called "Don't go in the Basement" or "Don't Look in the Basement" and was a Twilight Zone episode.
  4. Kliou the Tiger (1937) Henri de la Falaise, Vietnam - 7.5/ 10- This silent film is the first film of Vietnam (then Indochina) and also is considered the last American film of the silent era, both according to IMDB. It was made by Constance Bennett's husband Henri de la Falaise. The cast is entirely composed of native "Moi" Vietnamese speaking in their language with French officers speaking to each other at the introduction and end, setting up the story. Bhat is a goofy boy in love with Dhi though her father does not think much of him. After her father is grievously wounded by Kliou the tiger B
  5. Years ago, my mom described a "Twilight Zone" or "Outer Limits" episode she had seen but I could find nothing like what she described. It was definitely from a 1960s US B&W horror anthology show though. She said that in the episode, sounds were coming from a family's basement and the mom and son went to check it out but disappeared. The father then goes downstairs and comes back up with a horrified expression on his face. She said it never showed what became of the son and wife or what the sound was which is what interests me. She also insisted it was Twilight Zone or Outer Limits so it mu
  6. Dolores del Rio didn't make any films in Mexico. I think he meant TCM should have aired that day's movies in Mexico. Either that or he got her confused with Maria Felix?
  7. I agree she could be really annoying when it called for it. One of the weirdest internet posts I've ever seen was one sexualizing Shelley Winters in Lolita. 🤮
  8. I remember you saying you hated Rudolf Hrusinsky as well, though I would have to strongly disagree as I think he was great. Also welcome back, Larry.
  9. Gene Wilder. I don't like that weird smirking thing he does. It's as if he's intentionally trying to look nervous and quirky. Also I second Bob Hope. He's not funny.
  10. In fiction, hunchbacks are usually depicted as evil or creepy and worse than lepers, even though their plight is not through their own doing. A bit of an aside but I'm reading the Arabian Nights right now and it's a bit funny how in the story of Nur ed Din, it goes out of its way to describe the hunchback character as evil and malicious for marrying a pretty woman even though it was through no doing of his own anyway (it was the Sultan's). Quasimodo may be a bit creepy to the parisians below but he is probably one of the kinder depictions of hunchbacks in fiction.
  11. He's even wearing the Totenkopf hat and German uniform. Pottsylvania must have had its own Operation Paperclip.
  12. Any of the ones where they leave it open for a sequel (is the monster dead or not?)
  13. Not to restart this kerfuffle but TCM has actually shown Leni Riefenstahl's films and also the 1943 German Titanic before.
  14. Fearless Leader is actually based off of Otto Skorzeny, the SS chief. https://www.cracked.com/article_20747_6-bizarre-cameos-by-infamous-killers-in-kids-shows.html It's not just that Fearless Leader is a stock Nazi character -- he may even be a specific Nazi. The scar on the left side of his face was the trademark of Otto Skorzeny, one of the chiefs of the SS during World War II. And yes, Skorzeny survived the war and was still alive -- just hangin' around, doin' murderer stuff -- while Rocky & Bullwinkle was on the air. It's not unlikely that he watched the show. It is
  15. Notre Dame cathedral burned down last year. That is what he is mentioning.
  16. The 1923 Hunchback is considered one of the Universal Monsters. I guess it's considered horror just because he's an ugly guy who is seen as a bit malevolent and creepy at first. https://universalmonsters.fandom.com/wiki/Quasimodo I mean, Frankenstein and his bride aren't intentionally malevolent either but they are considered monsters usually as well? I don't see a with Hunchback being described as a horror film.
  17. Frank Sinatra was Buddhist? Or it's just decorations?
  18. McCabe and Mrs. Miller is a must watch. That ending is incredible. Also neat Leonard Cohen soundtrack.
  19. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/aug/14/natures-furry-engineers-sea-otters-in-california-estuaries-surprise-scientists-aoe It is not just at sea that North America’s smallest marine mammals with a huge appetite are benefitting the ecosystem Photographs by Isabelle Groc The age of extinction is supported by About this content Isabelle Groc Sea otters eat 25% of their body weight each day to maintain their body heat.

  20. Trump's not going to dump Pence and risk alienating like half of his evangelical supporters.
