  1. Thank you so much for the May 2021 schedule. Love the Star of the Month Roberts. They also highlight female stars - Esther Williams on May 4 Katherine Hepburn on May 12 Elizabeth Taylor on May 17 They celebrate Fred Astaire’s Birthday on May 10
  2. I do take these films not just as history lessons but life lessons, art, and I am reminded daily that they have very few stars who could do half of what these of the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and some in the silent era have done. I cling dearly to their treasures left behind. I notice everything and everyone. I take time to research an actor to find out about other work they did. My favorite silent star is Lon Chaney. No one, not even today ( without special effects) can do what he did on film. I’m in awe, every time I see his movies.
  3. A cast member from the 10 Commandments is still alive, Debra Paget who played Lilia is 88 and Fraser Heston, Charleston’s son played baby Moses. He is 66 years old.
  4. I would pay to see Robert Downey Jr. play Sherlock Holmes two more times. He made that role his own. People are still paying to see Vin Diesel & Co. in the Fast & Furious franchise. Some people age well on film or do their best work when their older.
  5. Thanks, there are so many stand out performances from these actors and actresses.
  6. Love this thread! Robert Downey, Jr. in Less Than Zero Gregory Peck in Gentlemen’s Agreement and To Kill a Mockingbird Tyrone Power in Nightmare Alley Sean Penn in Milk Mickey Rourke in Year of the Dragon and The Wrestler Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane Angela Bassett in What’s Love Got to do With It? Henry Fonda taking James Cagney in Mr. Roberts Tom Cruise taking on Tim Robbins in War of the Worlds I agree with many of the selections by the other fans.
  7. I like Alice Faye with Tyrone Power in the classic In Old Chicago. Great Twenty Century Fox movie that I haven’t seen on TCM in decades.
  8. Gordon Macrae, wonderful singer. I sing all the songs from Oklahoma. When they “People Will Say We’re in Love, and Surrey with a Fringe on the Top I melt. Loved with Cagney , Doris Day and Virginia Mayo in West Point Story.
  9. Dean Stockwell is one of a few child actors who managed to have a career after age 40. Other child stars who were still on film include Jackie Cooper, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Roddy McDowell who might have been younger than 40 in Planet of the Apes, and Mickey Rooney . I probably missed a few.
  10. Just happens that Sandy Dennis is on right now, co-starring in Splendor in the Grass with Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood on TCM. It goes off at 2:30 a.m.
  11. Marlon Brando at his best!! If you can't wait until January 30th to see Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront on TCM, it's coming on PBS (channel 13 in New York) this Saturday, January 9th at 9:00 p.m. Love the music, lovethe cast and the rumble between Brando and Lee J. Cobb. (No Commercials) If you want to sing out loud, Grease will be on MOVIES (Channel 493, Fios in New York) Enjoy
  12. Nice choice. I saw her in Kings Row, which is one of my all time favorites. The Rains Came with a very young Tyrone Power and I saw her in Dodsworth.
  13. This is a good topic TopBilled. I never watched The West Wing either. I watched a lot of NYPD Blue and was surprised that I liked it very much. All the years. I am now watching The Untouchables series which I enjoy. They a lot of guest stars that show up. Barbra Stanwyck, Telly Savalas, Robert Redford, Jack Klugman, Rober Duval, Elizabeth Montgomery, Vic Morrow, Robert Loggia, Charles Bronson and many more. It’s on Heroes and Icons cable station. I want them to bring back the mini series, The Thornbirds, North and South, Rich Man, Poor Man and Roots.
  14. This is a great idea Lori, I’m going to start listing the films that I watch for the first time. The first one will be Born Yesterday. I have only seen clips of this film. I’m a big fan of William Holden. I loved him in Picnic, Sunset Blvd., Stalag 17, Rachel and the Stranger, and Love is a Many Splendored Thing. The next will be Henry the VIII with another favorite actor of mines, Charles Laughton. He was at the top of his game in a Spartacus, Witness for the Prosecution and a rat in Les Miserables with Fredrick March.
