  1. OK then. Thanks, movieman. S A M ~p e a c e~
  2. I've really come to appreciate Mr. Tracy's style, over the years of viewing his films. My favourite casting of him is in Dinner At Eight. Also, quite enjoy him in The Best Man in which he completely outacts Fonda (albeit not all that difficult to do). And anyway, anyone who **** on a military parade is definitely aces in my book. Rest in peace, Mr. Tracy. I like your style. S A M ~p e a c e~
  3. Since Der Bingle was no stranger to reefer, thought the tag appropriate. Anyway, there is a fantastic collection of his recordings which is in fact ongoing and is up to Disc #51. A must for fans of Mr. Crosby's marvellous voice. Even includes some full-length narrations which were released on vinyl, the narration from Legend Of Sleepy Hollow inclusive. {...} And speaking of Bing Bang Bong . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJf9n6TX-ns&NR=1 S A M ~p e a c e~ Message was edited by: TCMWebAdmin Advertising without consent
  4. //And hey, if you and Kyle end up at the Formosa for drinks, somebody better be sure and invite me!// You betcha. ;-) I'll be sure to check out your blog, soon; thanks. S A M ~p e a c e~
  5. HollywoodGolightly Fantastic! Thank you ever so much, HollywoodGolightly. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner to thank you. A very nice end-of-year tribute to a long list of folks who will be missed. I do miss the original, angel-in-the-heavens-with-the-tolling-bell openings, though. =========================================== lzcutter Aloha, lz! ;-) Thanks for the welcome back. Sorry to you, also, for not getting back on sooner to thank you for the welcome-back. Hope all is well with you and yours, too. Checked out your home page: www.classiclasvegas.com - a very smartly designed site, first-rate art design. Look forward to that Gallery. B-) Don't know how you feel about The Meadows in this supposedly modern age, but I think that (along with 'The Happiest Place On Earth' these days), it's dead. I much prefer the kitsch of the bygone days . . . as I knew it. ;-) Ever since 1989, despite it being the brightest area on Earth as seen from space, I feel like Sin City has blacked out for me as a novel place to tour; although, when I was long-hauling in the nineties, I did stopover there one night, and the south-end of the Strip is rather a marvel to see from a distance. Also saw said marvel from the air once, flying in and out of McCarran. Nevertheless, I do feel that Vegas' current excess ? is indeed "what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday nights if the Nazis had won the war." Have you seen Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas? I thought that the art director did a superb job of capturing the aesthetic feel of the town's (in my estimation) heyday. "Let's get down to brass tacks. How much for the ape?" Who knows, we might swing by sometime despite my criticisms. Would like to see the Boulder Dam and the Atomic Testing Museum, and we have, for some time in fact, had a desire to check out the Amargosa Opera House in Death Valley Junction, ever since seeing an endearing documentary on it: http://www.amargosafilm.com Maybe I should jet over in August to see Steely Dan at the Palm? Anyway, wonderful to see you are still at it here. Catch ya, later. =========================================== _Kyle In Hollywood_ Good hello, Kyle! // Sorry to hear you're TCM-Free these days, old friend. But that's no reason for a two year absence.// Point taken. I see, now, that is indeed the case. Looks like I owe you a drink at the Formosa next time I'm way deep into nothing special, riding the crest of a wave breaking just west of Hollywood. In fact, two drinks, maybe more, because those links you gave me were fantastic! You're right about the '15/90' montage - very cool. And the anniversary redirect is great!!! A great design. It was a treat to see Bob O's first intro. Didn't know that '100 Years' was the very first thing to air. Loved the 'Risque Business,' 'Separate Cinema,' 'Films From The Black List,' 'Warner Bros. 75yrs Anniversary' 'and 'Bowery Boys festival' promos. The Bowery Boys festival was before I started getting TCM. Wish they had reprised that frequency of airing those flicks. Other airings that were before my access to TCM which I wished they had reprised were the documentaries 'Midnight Ramble,' 'Louise Brooks: Looking For Lulu' and 'The Race To Save 100 Years.' Never got to see those. Wonder, in which year did TCM start doing the 'TCM Remembers?' The archived printed media was very nice, too. I wish they would have shown all of the 'Now Showing' covers. And, I wish they would make posters of the 'Who's Who Of Whodunit's' and the 'Cary Grant Film Festival' advertisements. As for the 2008 programming that I missed . . . A Val Lewton documentary and four Sinatra music specials?!?!?! However, I cannot say I missed Elvis Mitchell's insinuative presence on TCM; in fact, I am glad I did. I think he is a total His "interviews" on IFC were mediocre at best. I do hope TCM is not even considering replacing Bob O with him when the former retires. And speaking of other hosts, how's the BM coming along these days? Well, again, my sincere thanks for the tip about the archives. //Hoping you'll stop by once in awhile// Thanks. Will do.

  6. Indeed: rest in peace, Ms Arthur. //What a pity she never got a big fat role in a Woody Allen film// B-) Yes, she would have been a good addition in any of his films. She would have been good too, on a similar thought, as some character in an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, someone vexing Larry. My favourite role of hers was her cameo in History Of The World, Part I as the Vnemployment clerk, when she paraphrases what Comicus does (being a "Stand-Up Philosopher") as being a bullshtt artist. And her closing line when she says she can no longer be of assistance because she is going on her wine break. S A M ~p e a c e~
  7. Greetings any and every one. Haven't been by in a long long time. Nice to see the website look has remained as the Northern Star. Appy polly loggies if this matter has already been discussed, previously: Was there no TCM Remembers ~ 2008? Doesn't seem to be anything in the media area, so am wondering if the tradition ended in 2007 which would be a shame if the case. Milady and I no longer have cable, for two years now, so we cannot viddy the great TCM montages, any longer Nowadays, we just watch new dvd's and the 5000+ movies recorded from TCM, IFC, Sundance and AMC (from wayback when Clooney was host). TCM programming - the only real loss from having no cable. Anyway, could someone please advise that, indeed, there was no end-of-year, 'TCM Remembers' montage in 2008. Thanks. S A M ~p e a c e~
  8. [nobr]I don't know . . . with TCM doing the pusherman and giving out free tastes, I find my self waiting for the man to get well again when before I knew no such craving.[/nobr] S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  9. [nobr]It's just a dugout that my dad built[/nobr] In case the reds decide to push the button down We've got provisions and lots of beer The key word is survival on the new frontier http://www.atomicplatters.com S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  10. [nobr]Yeah . . . I know.[/nobr] Hence the post's title. ;-) S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  11. [nobr]Yeah but Nine Girls . . .[/nobr] Wha' hoppened there? S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  12. [nobr]This was the first time I had been given an opportunity to see some of the 'Lone Wolf' series of films, and, as I expected - they were a lot of fun. As the gal from the bronx said - very enjoyable.[/nobr] Such a treat for TCM to air the ones they did. But (not to look a gift horse in the mouth as the saying goes) if do-able, I can't understand why all the available films of an enjoyable series can't be shown either in a nice block of them, or periodically in groups but more regularly? Personally, am not much interested in any of the silent-era films featuring the 'Michael Lanyard' character which starred either Henry B. Walthall: . . . or Jack Holt: But would love to see Columbia's series that spanned the early 'talkies' era which apparently starred Bert Lytell as 'Lanyard.' But mostly, would love an opportunity to see any and all of the 30's-40's run, particularly the remaining Warren William ones (The Lone Wolf Keeps A Date, Secrets of The Lone Wolf, Counter-Espionage, One Dangerous Night and Passport To Suez): And the first one of that period (The Lone Wolf Returns) which stars Melvyn Douglas as the role. Here's a link to get to a great image (too large to post) from that one: http://www.doctormacro.com/Movie%20Star%20Pages/Douglas,%20Melvyn.htm And don't let's forget the one after Douglas and before William - The Lone Wolf In Paris, the only outing with Francis Lederer as the character: And then there's the four films featuring the two other Michael Lanyard's: ~ The Notorious Lone Wolf / The Lone Wolf In London / The Lone Wolf In Mexico Gerald Mohr: ~ The Lone Wolf And His Lady Ron Randall: Maybe someone could do up one of those petitions again? Although the success of the first one has yet to be seen. S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  13. [nobr]Thanks L & CS . . .[/nobr] Shall make-do (come next Yuletime) with what one must, eh? ~P E A C E~ S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  14. [nobr]Well, fu?k those NBC lame-o's, then.[/nobr] S A M [nobr][/nobr]
  15. [nobr]Don't give a rat's about what 'coulda been' (for I am not all that impressed with Capra's earlier work for I feel it pales in comparison to his later work); what I want to know is if we are getting privvy to (finally?) It's A Wonderful Life come this (reported) tribute in May?[/nobr] S A M [nobr][/nobr]
