  1. I really liked Hell Bound. The performances were good. John Russell was ruthless as Jordan and I thought June Blair was very good as Paula. She is sexy and at first seems to be after every guy, but she shows real affection for Stuart Whitman as Eddie. I liked her scene with the dying child as well. The plan was an interesting premise and I liked the opening sequence showing how the plan would work. The ending sequence was great on Terminal Island seeing the abandoned cars all piled up. The locations added a lot to this film. I have never heard of this movie so I am glad it was show
  2. Tom, thank you for starting this topic and recognizing Errol Flynn for the magnificent talent he was. While he was certainly popular, he never gets the credit he deserves as an actor. The earliest classic movie I can remember watching was The Adventures of Robin Hood and it remains one of my favorites still today. Flynn as Robin Hood is one of the greatest examples of an actor and a role being perfectly matched and creating movie magic. Clearly it made enough of an impression on me as it started my interest in classic movies, which has only grown. Captain Blood is another I've always
  3. Here's the full schedule https://prod-images.tcm.com/Microsites/SUTS/2021/schedule.pdf
  4. Cary Grant and Carole Lombard were wonderful together in In Name Only (1939).
  5. I like the challenges to be more frequent so I am all for May or June.
  6. Congratulations LonesomePolecat! I'm excited to see what you come up with for your challenge. Great schedules everyone! Thank you to Lydecker for a most enjoyable challenge! I had a lot of fun with this theme.
  7. Thanks for sharing that. I'll keep the story in mind for the future.
  8. While I am familiar with A.J. Cronin, I have never read any of his novels but I do wish to in the future. It's a shame that he is rarely mentioned today because he was a prolific writer and his work was very popular when it was written. Do you have a favorite of his novels?
  9. Larry McMurtry was an incredible writer who created many memorable stories and characters. I'm saddened by his death. Rest in Peace.
  10. I've watched a variety of films over the past couple weeks. I'll highlight a few of them. Blood and Sand (1941) - what an enjoyable film. It tells the story of the rise and fall of a bullfighter played by Tyrone Power. The cinematography in this film was gorgeous and a deserving Academy Award winner. This film has a wonderful cast including Rita Hayworth, Linda Darnell, Alla Nazimova, Anthony Quinn, J. Carrol Naish, John Carradine and Laird Cregar in one of his first roles. Even a young George Reeves is here before he became Superman! The kids are excellent in the first thirty minutes of
  11. Isn't it a shame how the television movies and miniseries that were so popular have become difficult to find now? Imagine how wonderful it would be to see a miniseries like Captains and the Kings or Centennial shown again on television.
  12. I'm glad you mentioned The Man Between because it is underappreciated. I was able to watch this several years ago and found it very enjoyable. In fact, I just bought the DVD because it rarely airs and I wanted to see it again. I recall Mason and Bloom making a very good pairing and the great photography you highlighted, so I look forward to revisiting this film.
  13. Thanks for bringing attention to the many stars mentioned in this thread. Hopefully we will see many of them properly honored in the future.
  14. Tom, I've really enjoyed reading your comments. I have also always loved this film since the first time I saw it. It is very special to me and the quintessential example of film greats coming together and creating something magical. To me, it is unlike any other film. The wonderful zither score, Robert Krasker's incredible visuals, Greene's wonderful script, Reed's excellent direction and exceptional performances from absolutely everyone. It is a film I love to watch at least once a year and I always try to watch it live if I can. I always notice or come away with something different too.
