  1. "Happy 100 Diana Serra Cary (Baby Peggy)! Have all her surviving films and one short (hoping to add one tonight)." My mom is also turning 100 years old tomorrow (October 29th). She was born the same day as Baby Peggy. BLU
  2. I see this is an old thread, but AT&T has introduced Watch TV for $15 a month, a no-frills (no DVD) streaming service that includes TCM. BLU
  3. I don't think Clark Gable's character was married in Men in White... BLU
  4. I'm usually able to figure out the "theme of the day" (performer, title, subject matter), but the lineup of 09/06/2018 has me stumped. Can anyone tell me what these films have in common? I Take This Woman, Men in White, Knockout, The World Changes, Oil for the Lamps of China, An American Romance, The Power and the Prize. BLU
  5. Something about A Raisin in the Sun always bugged me... Lena says that she and Walter Sr. moved into their apartment as young marrieds. Now that Walter Sr. is recently deceased, Beneatha sleeps in the bedroom with her mother, but where did she sleep prior to her father's death? There are two bedrooms and a sofa in the living. The other bedroom belongs to Walter Jr. and Ruth, and Travis sleeps on the sofa. BLU
  6. "I would say it presents, unfortunately, a "believable real life situation" for what it was like to be black in Macon, Georgia in the early '30s." -------------- I have to wonder if in a real courtroom there would have been two chairs for those testifying based on their race (I thought the same thing with Pinky). BLU
  7. I specifically came onto the boards to see if anyone had posted about this. He's definitely slurring. This was, I believe, filmed a year ago (he mentions having just lost his mother and that his father would be 101 "this December"). He looks great, but he's definitely slurring his words. Maybe it is an effect of the cancer...but you're NOT imagining it! BLU
  8. She's on with Ben sharing her memories of and knowledge about Star of the Month William Holden, and she looks TERRIFIC! Anybody else agree? BLU
  9. She looks wonderful! Happy Birthday! BLU
  10. This is only a TV show, but when Doris Singleton was first introduced as one of Lucille Ball's friends on I Love Lucy, her name was Lillian Appleby. After that one appearance her name became Carolyn Appleby. But the writers made a lot of changes on that show...the Ricardos had a different phone number every season! BLU
  11. "I'm not keen on showing Made-for-TV movies on TCM." -------------------- One thing I wish they'd show that was made for TV is "The Scarlett O'Hara Wars," part of the Moviola miniseries (the other segments might be appropriate for TCM as well, I believe they were period pieces) about the search for an actress to play Scarlett O'Hara. Bill Macy and Tony Curtis were too old to play the Selznick brothers, but the actresses they cast as the stars of the day were, as I remember, spot on. And I still remember that funny line David O. Selznick said when the police paid him a visit for viola
  12. I noticed that, too and was momentarily confused because it sounded so weird. She also said something about being three or four "months" older than Oscar when I'm sure she meant to say "years." I just chalked it up to her advanced age. All things considered, I think she did a fine job and found her remarks about her late husband quite touching. BLU
  13. My picks for nominations: 1) Claudia McNeil for A Raisin in the Sun (supporting) 2) Edward G. Robinson for Double Indemnity (supporting) 3) Sidney Poitier for A Raisin in the Sun (lead) 4) Rosalind Russell for Picnic (supporting). (I'm glad someone already mentioned the long-circulated rumor that she did herself in) 5) Al Freeman, Jr., for Malcolm X (supporting) 6) Kirk Douglas, Ace in the Hole (lead) There are probably others, but those are the ones that come to mind...
