  1. The following in no particular order: Gone with the Wind A Streetcar Named Desire Network Guess Who's Coming to Dinner 2001: A Space Odyssey Gentleman's Agreement Giant The Producers Titanic In the Heat of the Night
  2. I loved the commercial, keep up the good work TCM. The use of alternative rock music for a soundtrack is refreshing. I've been a fan of TCM since the beginning and appreciate the creative promotions, more importantly the inclusion of spotlight features such as the Janus Films on this month are LONG overdue. Classic films are by no means made only in the USA. TCM has shown many great foreign films on their World Cinema slot, but rarely in prime time which makes this month very special indeed. Bravo
  3. As a kid, I would look forward to the weekends where the local networks would run B&W films in the morning hours. The line up was mostly westerns and gangster films with an occasional film noir in the mix. I was hooked, particularly with the gangster films that included Cagney and/or Bogart. In the early 90's, I started watching foreign films at the local movie theater and became very interested in classic world films as well. I've watched TCM since the beginning and I couldn't be happier with the programming over the years. Keep up the great work TCM, you've done a great job in expanding the horizons of classic film lovers as well bringing in new younger generations of fans.

  6. Make Way For Tomorrow - Leo McCarey directed both this film and The Awful Truth in 1937, he won Best Director that year for The Awful Truth, he was reported to have said that he had won for the wrong film.
  7. Sounds like the film you described about the blind girl is Happy Times a film by Yimou Zhang who coincidently is the director of the first Chinese film that I saw Raise the Red Lantern which stared the incredible actress Li Gong. In addition to Raise the Red Lantern, I would recommend To Live a film also by Yimou Zhang and starring Li Gong. My highest praise goes to the great film In the Mood for Love by director Kar Wai Wong, it's a wonderful film with great performances by Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung. In the Mood for Love is so good that its one of my top 10 favorite films of all time. Other fine films directed by Kar Wai Wong include Days of Being Wild, Chungking Express, Fallen Angels, and 2046.
  8. Strictly on sex appeal: Past: Gene Tierney, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and Sophia Loren. Present: Monica Bellucci, Maggie Cheung, Halle Berry, and Salma Hayek.
  9. Mitchum was one of my all time favorite actors. I wait patiently for a DVD box set of his films to be released. As for my favorite it would have to be Out of the Past which I consider the finest film noir ever made. His films with Jane Russell sizzle with great screen chemistry as well.
