  1. As lieutenant Columbo used to say, "You'll be the first to know"
  2. "Fantastic Voyage", interesting ! I know that movie: Raquel Welch, Stephen Boyd, Donald Pleasence. When I was a young boy, I recall a conversation that my father had with one of his friends about that movie. They were fascinated by the idea of launching a tiny submarine with a medical crew through the eye of the man with the fatal tumour.
  3. Well, folks, I have just purchased this double feature from Amazon: Fritz Lang's 1959 Indian Epic: "The Tiger of Eschnapur" and "The Indian Tomb" a Blu-ray set, just released. Pricy, but, to me, worth having. My papa took me to see these two movies when I was a boy.
  4. Oh yes, I remember that line. Great!
  5. "Barry Lyndon" is my favorite Kubrick's film! I have seen it the first time in a theatre with two charming English ladies, freshly arrived from England. I love David Lynch. I simply love the atmospheric aspect of his films, even if I don't understand the plot (but, again, does Lynch want you to understand the plot?)
  6. Last time, I forgot to mention "As Good as it Gets" in my list. Shame on me!!!
  7. Strange, but when it comes to Romantic Comedies, I tend to neglect the ones that were made prior to the 1970's, at the exception, perhaps, of "Roman Holidays", "Breakfast at Tiffany", "Charade" and "Arabesque" Otherwise, the romantic comedies that I like are: Pretty Woman (Julia Roberts recently said that this movie could never have been made today) Sabrina (1995, Harrison Ford) Notting Hill The Proposal Two Weeks Notice Leap Year Maid in Manhattan Six Days Seven Nights Love Actually She's out of my League Meet Joe Black Roxanne The Goodbye Girl The American President Dave (I am not sure this movie falls directly into the "romantic comedies" category) Made of Honour Four Weddings and a Funeral (perhaps not a romantic comedy in a classic sense) I am sure I forgot some good ones, but these are my choices....for now
  8. Now that TCM has made some changes to its look (new layout, font, etc.), I was wondering if they were thinking on improving the method by which one can request a movie and, chiefly, answering to the request with a message that pertains to the specific request and not with a generic thank you for your feedback message.
  9. TCM aired both Ben-Hur (1925 and 1959) on Monday. Fantastic! I can never tire to watch these two films, especially the Charlton Heston Ben-Hur. I know the dialogue by heart. Of course, I have both in my Blu-ray collection. I first saw the 1959 version when I was a boy (8 or 9) and it has been one of my all-time favourite movies ever since. I was wondering which of the two version you folks prefer? I was even more pleased to watch them on TCM since my cable provider upgraded TCM to HD about two months ago. In my 55" Plasma TV, that was superb!!
  10. Hey, folks, I can't remember if I mentioned this movie before, but if I did, so be it! "5 Fingers" (1952) is a great spy movie, as well as a great romance taking place in Istanbul during WWII, black and white with James Mason, French actress, Danielle Darrieux and this other fine British actor Michael Rennie ("The Day the Earth Stood Still"). As far as I know, TCM featured that movie once (a long time ago), but I feel it is one of those gems that deserves to be shown more often. What do you guys think?
  11. I don't think that I have ever seen "The Omen III" I know that Sam Neal plays the adult Damien in it, but, somehow, I was never interested in seeing it. That said, I do like "The Omen II". William Holden is in it, playing the uncle, and that adds some presence and character to the movie.
  12. The name "Forty-One" comes from Ben-Hur. That was his number when he was a condemn man in the Roman galley.
  13. It helped a great deal. Thanks a million!😊
  14. Very sorry guys, I am more confused than ever before.... I thought I was asking a simple question...
