  1. Bobbysoxer Marcy McGuire is still with us at age 94.
  2. Sonia Darrin, actress in The Big Sleep and mother of child star Mason Reese, has died at the age of 96. She passed on July 19, 2020. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/sonia-darrin-dead-femme-fatale-bogarts-big-sleep-was-96-1304982
  3. True, but one of the Modernaires did follow Miller into the Army. After Miller received his commission in the Army in late '42, the Mods continued to perform stateside with Tex Beneke and Marion Hutton (billed as "The Glenn Miller Singers"). It was during this period (about 1943) that two of the original Modernaires, Bill Conway and Hal Dickinson, had a disagreement which resulted in Conway quitting the group. He enlisted in the Army to join Miller's military band, but by the time he enlisted --- in the regular Army --- Capt. Miller had been transferred into the Army Air Forces. Conwa
  4. Not sure why the word "h o t t i e" was censored.
  5. Remembering the beautiful Louise Allbritton on the 100th anniversary of her birth. What a ****. Growing up, I knew her only as the raven-haired vampire from Son of Dracula (1943). It wasn't until much later that I learned she was a blonde . . . and a gorgeous one at that! She also starred in Abbott and Costello's Who Done It? (1942), as well as The Egg and I (1947) and Sitting Pretty (1948).
  6. I love The Jerk (1979). It's my favorite Reiner film. My family quotes it all the time. "You mean I'm gonna stay this color?!?" "The Lord loves a working man. Don't trust whitey. See a doctor and get rid of it." "The new phone book's here!! The new phone book's here!!"
  7. TopBilled, I probably assumed you didn't spend much time around other people because of your lack of insight into the human mind. We are a very complicated species, and liking or not liking a certain movie does not define someone socially or politically. Your simplistic, parochial view is this: a person cannot be sensitive or sympathetic to racial injustice if they like GWTW or don't agree that it requires an apology or explanation prior to its broadcast. And it doesn't require a wraparound in my view. I've seen films on TCM that I thought contained something racially offensive, and I
  8. I think many of us want these films to be shown w/o "warning" wraparounds because we're adults who can decide for ourselves whether or not a film contains objectional themes or material. Unlike you, we don't need Whoopi Goldberg "educating" us on what's good and what's bad.
  9. The Erotic Adventures of Pinocchio (1971) --- softcore porn that played the drive-in circuit in the late '70s. I still remember the promotional tagline "It's Not His Nose That Grows." SMH.
  10. I think these made-for-TV biopics would be appropriate on TCM: Bud and Lou (1978) NBC --- Harvey Korman and Buddy Hackett star as Abbott and Costello Rainbow (1978) NBC --- Andrea McArdle stars as Judy Garland Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (2001) ABC --- Tammy Blanchard and Judy Davis portray younger and older Judy; plus Hugh Laurie, John Benjamin Hickey, Sonja Smits, Dwayne Adams, and Al Waxman starring as Vincente Minnelli, Roger Edens, Kay Thompson, Mickey Rooney, and Louis B. Mayer (respectively) Mae West (1982) ABC --- Ann Jillian stars as M
  11. Lime = Emil. However, the one you have pictured here spells/spelled his name Emile. Emile Meyer, the chaplain in Kubrick's Paths of Glory (1957) and the cattle baron in Stevens' Shane (1953).
