  1. In honor of John Barrymore SUTS day yesterday: Curly tries to convince Moe and Larry that he has Barrymore's profile. Slaps and eye gouges follow..... From "Movie Maniacs" (1936).
  2. Don't forget Bela Lugosi in "Plan 9 from Outerspace".... (or maybe you should).
  3. Thanks for the info; I'll check out TBOTR on Amazon. I think you're spot on.... For example, TCM is showing Captain Newman, MD this month as part of the Tony Curtis SOTM. The last time it was on was 2010 (before which it had played 10 times).
  4. I did a quick query on MCOH's database to show any movie that has not played on TCM for 10 years but was played 10 or more times before that. It turns out that there are 56 feature movies that meet that criteria (ie excluding things like "Private Screenings", TV specials, etc). Since they were once played a bunch but then not at all it could mean a rights issue developed (or the owner decided to pull in the rights to show on their own outlets). A few from that list that I found interesting: 1. The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954) - Was shown 15 times, the last time in 2009-
  5. Olivia De Havilland and Errol Flynn on Warner Brother's back lot mid-late 1930s.
  6. Yes, I think he played the role in Great Britain in the late 1930s and then on Broadway in the early 1940s.
  7. One example off the top of my head are several film adaptations of Othello. He is described as a "Moor" but was often portrayed by a white actor in blackface. One with Laurence Olivier from 1965: Orson Wells was also in a version in 1952 (he interpreted Othello more as an North African Arab ) I don't think think these were examples of casting white actors for US Southern Region Box office reasons- it was pretty common to cast white actors in this role until fairly recently. The only other examples I can think of is Keenan Wynn in "Fi
  8. Charles Portis, author of novels which were made into the movies "True Grit" and "Norwood", died last week in Little Rock, Arkansas. He was 86. https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/books/2020/02/17/charles-portis-author-true-grit-dies-obit/4789660002/ I just re-read the novel "True Grit" after watching the 1969 version on TCM a couple of weeks ago. Interesting novel; the style and dialog makes it worth reading.
  9. Here's a quote from an interview with Robert Osborne by Scott Hollleran about the then upcoming 2015 "31 days of Oscar" programming: (Interview from ~2014 about Robert Redford as SOTM; link:http://scottholleran.com/writings/interviews/interview-robert-osborne-robert-redford/ ) They were probably tying to show as wide of a range as possible during that year. The Artist was released in 2011 (2012 winner) so it was only 4 years old at the time it was shown. This might have been one of the "youngest" non-documentary films they've shown but considering the subject manner it makes
  10. I did a quick query of Best Picture Winners against Movie Collector OH's Database and came up with this list that has NOT been on TCM: 1966 The Sound of Music 1987 Platoon 1994 Schindler’s List 2006 Crash 2007 The Departed 2009 Slumdog Millionaire 2013 Argo
