  1. Hurray! No toilets this time!! RIP, Mr. Ford. I love you, Johnny Farrell.
  2. Just so you know, it's the GOVERNMENT that can not restrict speech - TCM or anyone who posts on this website can do anything they want to regarding "speech." The Constitution reigns in the GOVERNMENT.
  3. My mom looks exactly like Kim Novak - she is still stopped to this day and asked for autographs. In his youth, my father resembled Desi Arnaz. When my mom and pop had me, Kim and Desi created ... Marilyn Monroe. Two days do not go by where I am not stopped and told I look exactly like Monroe. When I don't wear makeup, I am told, "If you put on makeup, you would look like Marilyn Monroe!" Once I attended a party not knowing it was a costume affair - and I took home the first prize for being Monroe! The only downside - I am an attorney, and a corporate one at that.
  4. The original In-Laws with Peter Falk is hilarious ("Serpentine! Serpentine!!) - the garbage remake with Michael Douglas stinks to high heaven. I'm not saying In-Laws does or does not belong on the list, but I had to defend it ...
  5. I don't know, Charli. Maybe it's because he looks and acts like he is unintelligent, which is a huge turn off for me. But then again, maybe that's part of his appeal ... different strokes for different folks.
  6. I agree about Brando - I don't see what makes the hearts flutter. One name I haven't seen pop up yet is James Dean - absolutely no sex appeal there (perhaps because he's a blonde, and they just don't do it for me). However, I have always found Edward G. Robinson to have tremendous sex appeal - the same is true for Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, Ray Milland, and some of the others named on this board. As for the gals (of which I am one), I believe Harlow was extremely sexy, as was Cyd Charisse, who I haven't seen named on this thread (the brunette in the Girl Hunt Ballet in The Bandwag
  7. Thank you so much, Silverbook. Are you really the only one out of 105 viewers of this posting who could answer my question? If so, it proves the old system WAS more user-friendly!! Thanks again - now I know when "Gilda" is coming up next!
  8. Someone may have already addressed this issue, and if so, I apologize in advance. Before the website was redesigned, I used to be able to search by movie title (or actor/actress name) for its next showing on TCM. Where did this feature go? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  9. I am really enjoying the new promos TCM is using to advertise upcoming movies. I loved the playful, classy promo for "It Happened One Night," and the flim noirish promo for "Sunset Boulevard" is a classic. I just viewed a promo for "The Third Man," and it's great, too. If TCM is trying to attract younger viewers, these promos are a super way to do it: the editing and "feel" are modern, but the promos respect (and show obvious fondness for) the original films. This is an example of someone creatively "modernizing" the appeal of classic films without imposing their own artistic vision on
  10. Oh - I just thought of another fabulous film death: Vera Clouzot's as Christina Delasalle in "Les Diaboliques." Watch that one alone and in the dark - it almost frightened ME to death! I shared her heart attack ...
  11. How about Joan Fontaine as Dr. Susan Hiller in "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"? You have to love a radiation-riddled villainess being devoured by a shark, especially when she is the elegant Ms. Fontaine. Kevin Spacey's death in "L.A. Confidential" always freaks me out because it seems so dang real. But I agree with many posters that the greatest filmed "big adios" is James Cagney's in "White Heat."
  12. Hey - I just found this information from a TCM Programmer on another thread: "As for the search questions, let me address the ability to find a title or star with their complete schedule first. This can be done 2 ways. The fastest way is to go to the TCM Search bar at the top of the page and select "site search." Then enter the title or star you are looking for and select "go." This search replicates what was on the previous site. You will find a star or titles listing here in the same manner as before, with a "remind me" email capability. We've even improved it so you get back more re
  13. I agree that this year's "TCM Remembers" tribute is tasteless. It should focus on the amazing talents which were silenced during the year - not serve as some type of editing practice for a film school wannabe I also agree with the earlier poster who stated TCM is becoming too dark in its produced segments - it's like some gothic weirdo has taken over the creative reigns.
  14. There used to be a link on TCM's website where you could type in a movie or actor and find out the next time TCM would be playing the searched-for movie or a film of the searched-for actor. I don't know what happened to this service, but I wish it would return! If you type the name of a movie or actor into a search engine such as Google, you will sometimes receive results indicating when a relevant feature is appearing on television - it all depends whether someone is doing the tracking!
  15. I'm not sure if I have the correct movie, because I haven't seen it in awhile, but my vote for strangest musical moment on film goes to the Easter Bunny song and dance fantasy sequence in 1949's My Dream is Yours. If I recall correctly, Doris Day and Jack Carson are trying to explain the Easter Bunny and its annual activities to Doris's son. Suddenly, Bugs Bunny enters the picture, and then Doris and Carson become rabbits, and the fantasy hi-jinx begin. Whenever I see it, I wonder how they got through the filming of it - the two of them must have thought they were putting the silliest song
