  1. Joseph Campanella also did voiceover work on reruns of Life Is Worth Living. from Wikipedia: Syndication Reruns of Life Is Worth Living and The Fulton Sheen Program continued to circulate as late as the early 1990s on broadcast stations, and was later carried by EWTN, with new introductions by actor Joseph Campanella.
  2. Stephan55 and everyone: Sorry I've been away too long from the boards. Have been caught up with many things, including preparing to "cut the (cable) cord". Had to put aside issue of TCM on the computer/mobile device for other higher priority technical issues. It turns out, despite prior advice from numerous sources, that I've had serious issues obtaining digital TV signals over the air. I want to get my local stations + PBS (+ those channels that show retro shows). Am on another attempt to get that done. I hate the idea of having to pay (Sling at $25/month) to get stations that broadcast the
  3. I particularly liked "Alfie" and "Educating Rita," with Michael Caine. May Mr. Gilbert, who led a long life, RIP.
  4. D O Stiers did a lot of voiceovers + narration on PBS documentaries. Had a good voice. May he RIP. Too many people seem to be dying "too soon."
  5. Forget Deborah Walley: seeing the Seeds singing that song is a real blast from the past! ;D
  6. Am just catching up on the TCM message boards. My birthday is April 14th, and until 1994, only bad things commemorated it (Lincoln being shot; Titanic hitting iceberg; day before income tax deadline). Finally, I can now say that my birthday also coincides with something positive: TCM, introduced by Robert Osborne, debuting on the air! ?
  7. This was NOT in the original "Columbo" series with Peter Falk.
  8. Million Dollar Movie in the NYC area introduced me to "Forbidden Planet," which I watched as many times as I could possibly catch it.
  9. During the tribute remembering his birthday (was it "Private Screenings" with Alec Baldwin?), he said he'd wished that his bobble head doll looked more like him. Still, I'd have loved to have one!
  10. In addition to Ben Mankiewicz's grandfather being co-writer on "Citizen Kane," his father was campaign press secretary to Robert F. Kennedy during his run at the Presidency. There were many luminaries who visited the Mankiewicz home. Ben most definitely has the pedigree + the intelligence to qualify him to host TCM (as opposed to someone like DB). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mankiewicz_family Ben Mankiewicz' father: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Mankiewicz

  12. Sadly, Frontier has never been able to get me to be able to use the TCM app despite me subscribing to TCM + have not found any great support from TCM either.
  13. Always on TV during the 60s as a guest in one series or another! Seems as if she led a long fruitful life. May Ms. Latham RIP.?
  14. I remember seeing Tim O'Connor not too long ago on an old "Columbo" episode.
  15. Just now checking in on my TCM account. So sad to read of Chuck McCann's passing. His children's show appearances were part of my childhood. Also I followed him on Facebook. It seemed that not too long ago, he did a FB live appearance. May Chuck RIP. :(?
  16. Am replying to you directly, as you have experience with this. My provider is Frontier (thrust upon TX, FL + CA when Verizon abandoned servicing these states). Despite having all-U.S. support, they are often clueless. Anyhow, after clicking on "Frontier," I signed in with my Frontier online ID. And I get an error message that I'm not allowed to access + should contact Frontier. Of course, when I tried to get help from them (numerous times), they were pretty much clueless. Here's a screenshot of what happens on my laptop. My iPad is another story; but same result: NOT WORKING! Any ideas?
  17. It seems as though some of my favorite actors have been from the Steppenwolf company. Another example who gone too soon is Glenne Headley.
  18. Thanks for mentioning "Primal Fear," the 1st movie in which I saw him. He was so believable in any role I saw him play. I especially loved his droll no-nonsense humor. May he rest in peace.
  19. I've really been enjoying (again) watching these interviews. The "Private Screening" with RO + Alec Baldwin has some hilarious moments, including their disagreements over "Mutiny on the Bounty [1962]" + Liz Taylor. Also loved seeing all those old clips of RO's acting career. Those old clips, the late 40s + 50s of Eva Marie Saint are also gems (especially the one with Jack Lemmon). Plus loving re-watching such interesting interviews with Jewison, Borgnine (must have previously missed that he'd married Katy Jurado), Hutton et al. The love of their craft certainly comes through. My answers that
  20. I've noticed that for the last few days TCM has been using that with Robert's name on it, which is a fitting tribute. It seems that intro was mainly a primetime thing.
  21. Thanks for posting this. I loved the 2 of them together on "The Essentials," as well as the 20-year celebration of RO's tenure at TCM. And both Alec + Robert have very different distinctive voices that I enjoy hearing.
  22. The above quote refers to post #12 by Lydecker. I was thinking something similar about how Robert O's life was somewhat charmed.…And reflecting on that, I realized that life can have rough spots, and "falling into" great opportunities was partly his own doing. He pursued a subject he loved with lots of hard work, but also came across as a kind, compassionate person. And I expect that he strove to treat all with respect. So Robert Osborne made the most of life and his choices attracted others, be it with opportunities or admiration. I guess the only thing better would've been to have a long
  23. Though I'd continued to hope that Mr. Osborne's health would improve and he could return to the air, sadly, I knew this was a distinct possibility. It's of some comfort that so many feel the same way I do, missing Robert Osborne imparting his knowledge of film with a passion and grace that's in short supply today. May he rest in peace.
  24. Nicenice visual accents, Richard Kimble! I'm so glad that Prof. Irwin Corey lived to be a ripe 102.
