  1. I let my subscription to 'Now Playing' lapse a couple of years or so ago but decided to renew. Imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox and pulled out April's awful cover. What a way to dampen my enthusiasm for renewing. My initial reaction was "****"? Especially after opening the issue and seeing the wonderful photo of Hedy Lamarr on the inside cover and she's the 'Star of the Month' no less. Thanks TCM!
  2. For what it's worth, I believe that is Donny and Marie Osmond in a sketch from "The Donny and Marie Show". Definitely not Bewitched or the Munsters.
  3. Thanks, TCM Progammer, for the shout back.
  4. Bumping back to the top in hopes that TCM Programmer will reply. Thanks.
  5. I have really been enjoying all the Columbia movies that have been shown lately as a result of the deal worked out with them. Just wondering if anything is in the works for more movies from Paramount/Universal? Stars such as Dorothy Lamour, Sylvia Sidney, etc. never have many of their movies shown on TCM as most of thier films were with these studios. Would love to see more from the Paramount/Universal pipeline. Thanks.
  6. TCM has shown very few of her films. The one's that I have seen on TCM are Sombrero, Death of a Scoundrel and McClintock. Unfortunately, the body of Ms. De Carlo's work was with Universal and TCM would probably have to make a deal to show those which could take a few months to obtain. I would love to see some of her work such as Salome Where She Danced, Frontier Girl and The Gal Who Took the West.
  7. January 2007 is going to be a great month and my VCR is going to have smoke coming out of it. February 2007, on the other hand, well....as the old saying goes, "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anthing at all!"
  8. Two days are listed and it's very top heavy with movies from the 80s and 90s. Is this the month of 31 days of Oscar?
  9. Yes, thanks. I especially enjoyed 'Carole Lombard Day' and seeing some of her films that I have never had the opportunity to see such as "The Princess Comes Across."
  10. I will add my two cents as well. I would like to see "Times Square Lady" and "Society Doctor" with Robert Taylor and Virginia Bruce. These have been shown in the past but not for a long while.
  11. I wish that someone from Paramount would create a little competition for Fox Movie Channel and TCM and create a Paramount Classic Movie Channel that would show classic Paramount and Universal pictures. Paramount and especially Universal films are hard to find anywhere be it on DVD or tv.
  12. Thanks, lzcutter, I knew there HAD to be a reason why, even though there are no commercials, Robert Osborne had to have a reason to implore us to buy this or that at the end of every movie, why the art deco retro feel of the studio, ads, graphics, etc. has slowly seemed to change to a retro 60s and 70s vibe and few movies from the 90s have creeped in: as you stated below, they need the money now to run all these movies and who do the idiotic "suits" think has the most money? Teens and twentysomethings! Go figure! I was broke in my twenties!!
  13. When all things Turner went TimeWarner, that was the beginning of the slide. It took about 4 or 5 years, but the Atlanta Braves, my favorite baseball team, have finally landed in last place in their division because TimeWarner has refused to meet salaries and trade for other players. The Braves now are left with mostly rookies and a few veterans who are over that 30 age mark and TimeWarner now is trying to sell them to another huge corporation. When TCM hit the airwaves, I seem to recall Ted Turner, when asked how TCM could survive without ads, he said something to the effect that since he
