  1. I quite like Dana Andrews. Some of my favorite of his films are: The Best Years Of Our Lives Laura Boomerang Where the Sidewalk Ends Crash Dive (co-starring w/Tyrone Power) The Iron Curtain Elephant Walk My Foolish Heart Madison Avenue
  2. Hehe... Just goes to show, there is something for everyone. I don't like that pale color of green used on the new one. Looks so washed out - especially in the middle of the screen where it...well, washes out.
  3. Yes, Jeffrey. Of course I've seen that video before. But of course, there are tons of Star Trek related you tubes - some serious, some funny, etc. I've seen them all, more than likely. Here is another of my favorite opening credits sequences. And just as a point of interest, this show was how I was introduced to at least 3 classic film stars...before I was a classic film fan: Jane Wyman, Cesar Romero, and earlier in the series, Mel Ferrer. Started watching this show 'cus I was an old Dark Shadows fan (once again, Scifi/fantasy), and followed David Selby to this show: Falcon Cr
  4. Well, my other big passion besides classic film (indeed, it pre-dates classic film) is scifi TV. And there are a ton of great themes/opening credits to some of these shows. My personal favorites (and keep in mind that this does not reflect my relative feelings about the shows themselves, only the credits/theme and how it fits the content of the show): 1. *Stargate Atlantis*: 2. *Babylon 5:* (this YouTube is long because this show featured a massive intergalactic war which stretched over several seasons, so they changed the credits every year to reflect the growing hostiliti
  5. I hated the postcard rack, so I'm glad it's gone. I hated the guy's voice and what he says, I hated the music, and I hated some of the postcards shown. I liked "One Reel Wonders" and I like this new one though. So I'm good with the new one. I actually miss the buildings in the rating info bits much more than I will ever miss these postcards.
  6. Some of my favorites: *John Ford/John Wayne* - that one is a given, I think. *Alfred Hitchcock/James Stewart* - the Hitchcock films he made were among my favorite James Stewart movies *Frank Capra/James Stewart* - the Capra films he made make up the rest of my favorite James Stewart movies *Michael Curtiz/Errol Flynn* - Bring on the Empty Horses! *Douglas Sirk/Rock Hudson* - I love all of those movies they did together *John Huston/Humphrey Bogart* - with the exception of Casablanca (Michael Curtiz) and To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks) all of Bogies best movies were with Huston.
  7. Well, while I agree with you about the Van Dine shorts being fun and in need of better 'advance notice' on the schedule, I take issue with the 'travelogues' not being interesting. I actually COLLECT those FitzPatrick Travel Talks. I am an avid traveler myself (been all over the world - traveling is even more of a passion for me than film!) and I look forward to those Travel Talks because I enjoy seeing how some of the places I've been in the past 10 or 20 years looked 50 + years ago. My point is that, while I agree with you about the Van Dine Shorts, don't assume that because YOU don'
  8. I'd consider His Girl Friday to be a romantic comedy, for sure.
  9. Yes. He was adorable. Utterly charming and elegant, yet with stunningly perfect comedic timing. All I have to do to bring a smile to my face is to picture Cary Grant walking into that bathroom when he doesn't believe there is a leopard in there in Bringing Up Baby. Perfect comedic timing. Brilliant.
  10. In truth, I like her movies from the late 80's and early 90s. Stuff like Jumpin' Jack Flash and Sister Act. And she was really good in Ghost. I'm not sure if she is doing movies now. I think she is busy with The View.
  11. Glad you posted! I was hoping that you would! Your list is quite interesting. I probably should have included Brahms on my original list of favorites, and Schubert too, for that matter. Thought about going back to add Schubert, but was too lazy to do so, in the end. I have quite a few recordings as well. I would say Mozart is the most often-seen composer in my collection...although I have alot of Rachmaninov (including many different performers interpretations of the 2nd and 3rd piano concerto and Rhapsody on a Theme from Paganini - I tend to do that with many of my favorite comp
  12. *Modern Stars:* Denzel Washington - fabulous actor AND breathtakingly handsome. Morgan Freeman Whoopie Goldberg Gregory Hines (I used to LOVE to watch him dance - White Nights in particular was a great movie!) *Classic Stars:* Sidney Poitier Hattie McDaniel If any of these folks are in a film, that automatically makes it worth watching, as far as I'm concerned. Never seen a sub-par performance from any of them.
  13. As an Atlantan myself, I have a theory about that, but no point in airing our dirty laundry in public.
  14. Well, I see a few people are 'coming clean' with a list of "A List" type films they have not yet seen. So what the heck - I'm game. I mean, with well over 10,000 classic films out there, you can't see all of them, right? And even some big ones are likely to fall through the cracks - at least for a while. Anyway, here are some films I'm embarrassed not to have seen yet: The Man With the Golden Arm - just terrible of me since I am a Frank Sinatra fan and this is by all accounts one of his best films. My Darling Clementine - I'm not a huge fan of westerns unless they have Gary Coop
  15. Me too. My tradition of watching Yankee Doodle Dandy on July 4th is by far my favorite one. I simply never tire of this wonderful film. However, I guess I don't have many holiday-related traditions related to one specific film. I try to watch Christmas in Connecticut (and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) sometime during the holiday season, but the rest of my traditions are more vague. I like to watch a vampire movie of some type on Halloween (anything from Dracula to a modern vampire film like The Lost Boys or Underworld - different one each year)...and I celebrate some stars' bi
