  1. #1. A Christmas Story (1983). I just love that movie, because I remember what it was like when I was a kid and I really wanted something for Christmas and got it. #2. Charlie Brown Christmas for all the reason you mentioned, bobhopefan1940 #3. Every year my Mom and I watch classic Christmas movies, Christmas in Connecticut, Miracle on 34th Street. #4. Judy Garland singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" #5. When my Mom was in college her apartment got robbed and they stole all her Beatles LP's. So a couple of years ago I bought them all again for her (on CD as she do
  2. IMHO, Barbara Stanwyck was, and will always be, the greatest, most talented actress to ever grace the silver screen.
  3. Rudolph Valentino. Oh gods was he sexy. **fans self** Ronald Colman. He had such a sexy voice. Harrison Ford. He just has that rugged look that I can't resist. Ewan McGregor. It's the accent. I'm a complete sucker for a Scottish accent (and Australian accents too.) **rolls eyes**
  4. 1. Singin' in the Rain (1952) 2. The Empire Strikes Back (1980) 3. The Thin Man (1934) 4. Aliens (1986) 5. Lilo & Stitch (2002) All more times than I can count. I mean I used to watch The Empire Strikes Back everyday when I was in high school. And when I worked at Hollywood Video I used to play Lilo & Stitch every morning, when we opened.
  5. I too wish that TCM would re-establish their weekly themes, especially "Lone Star Cinema". It was nice to know for sure that at least one musical, one western, and one film noir would be playing every week.
  6. Madeleine Carroll starred in Hitchcock's The 39 Steps (1935) with Robert Donat. She was also in The General Died at Dawn (1936) with Gary Cooper and The Prisoner of Zenda (1937) with Ronald Colman. Click Here
  7. It's almost impossible to choose just one, there are so many different kinds of beauty. So here's a few of the ones I think are the most beautiful. Of the past: Kay Francis, Audrey Hepburn, Hedy Lamarr, Greta Garbo, Marion Davies, Gloria Swanson, Gene Tierney, Rita Hayworth, Norma Shearer, Barbara Stanwyck, Ann Harding, Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Jean Harlow, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and Ginger Rogers. Of the present: Nicole Kidman (who I think is the only star in Hollywood today that has any class), Julia Roberts, Kiera Knightley,
  8. Singin' in the Rain (1952), not only great as a musical (perhaps the greatest musical of all time), but also as a comedy.
  9. I think The Man From Laramie is my favorite.
  10. I would love to see Marion Davies (as many of her silent films are still intact) Norma Shearer (ditto) and Kay Francis as the SOTM.
  11. Tired of all these "greatest" movies ever made lists, us posters over on the Golden Age of Hollywood site decided to vote our own list. Here's the top ten: 10. All About Eve 9. Some Like it Hot 8. The Passion of Joan of Arc 7. Singin' in the Rain 6. Sunset Boulevard 5. The Maltese Falcon 4. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre 3. M 2. City Lights 1. North by Northwest
  12. Red Dust (1932), Mary Stevens, M.D. (1933) and When Ladies Meet (1933) for me.
  13. All you fellow pre-code fans will be pleased to know that in December TCM will be showing (for the first time to my knowledge) Waterloo Bridge (1930) with Mae Clarke. Woo Hoo! Also Ann Vickers (1933), which I've never seen and have wanted to for a long time (I love Irene Dunne), and Mandalay (1934) in October, which the last time TCM showed it my cable went out.

  14. Actress: Mary Pickford Actor: Buster Keaton
  15. Not sure where to put this, but oh well. I noticed this cool feature on the website awhile ago and even voted for a few. However, tonight while I was looking through the database for some information on a few silent films I noticed that the voting doesn't take into account whether the film still exsists or not. Several of the films that people have voted for (AFAIK) are "lost" films. Like "The Patriot" (1928) and "The Way of All Flesh" (1927) both starring Emil Jannings. I certainly hope TCM (or whoever runs the voting and database) looks into this and corrects it. Source of lost film inf
  16. If we're talking the latter half of the 20th century then my vote goes to George Lucas for created Star Wars which has become so ingrained in popular culture. Also Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock.
  17. Huntress, the problem with a lot of silent movies is that they don't have musical scores, and TCM won't show them, because they don't want to have "dead air" as it were. Not that we really care right? I'd watch them without a music score anyway!
  18. The first movie I really remember seeing in the theater was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I love that movie!
  19. Gee, I didn't know there were rules to being a classic movie fan! Because I'm violating them left and right. I'm sitting here listening to Coldplay and next I was going to listen to Alanis Morissette and maybe some Madonna. And not two hours ago I finished watching Sunrise (1927) Also my favorite actress is Barbara Stanwyck, and I also adore precodes and silent movies. But I must not be a classic movie fan because I'm not listening the Bing Crosby and Jimmy Durante. **rollseyes**
  20. I just want to add "Complicated Women" by Mick LaSalle to this list.
  21. I'm of the opinion that hardly anyone that wins Oscars doesn't deserve them. I can think of only a handful that DID deserve them, but most don't. We'll take 1997 as an example year: Winner vs. Best choice Best Picture: Titanic vs. L.A. Confidential Best Actor: Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets vs. Russell Crowe in L.A. Confidential Best Actress: Helen Hunt in As Good as it Gets vs. Jodie Foster in Contact Best Supporting Actor: Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting vs. Greg Kinnear in As Good as it Gets Best Supporting Actress: Kim Basinger in LA Confidentia
  22. Mongo, thanks for stating that the way you did about anime, because I would not have been so nice. That said whether you like it or not Coal Miner's Daughter and Airport ARE classics and have been shown on TCM before IIRC. 31 days of the Oscar is not just about movies that have WON Oscars but also movies that have been NOMINATED. Dick Tracy was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, Cinematography, Costume Design, and Sound. It won awards for Best Song "Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)" written by Stephen Sodheim (and performed beautifully by Madonna. Yes that's right I'm a Mad
  23. "Logan's Run" with Ewan McGregor in the lead role. I'm probably alone on this though. XD
  24. Kristian, I think you might get your wish for Jeanette MacDonald. In March I think both Jeanette and Nelson Eddy are going to be the Stars of the Month.
