  1. I agree. As I stated in my opening post, I've seen most of Bogie's films, including this one. Oddly enough, I think that by chance, this film was the first Bogart film I ever saw after Casablanca, The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, and the 4 films with Bacall. It's very good, and I enjoyed it alot! But then, I tend to find something I love in all of Bogart's films.
  2. I felt the same way, stoneyburke! By the time DiCaprio's character sunk under that water, I couldn't have possibly cared less. In fact, I was glad, because I figured that as a signal that the doggone thing was almost over, at last. *lol*
  3. Thanks for your hard work on this thread, and on your website. It's always nice to have some suggestions, when one's time for pursuit of hobbies is limited. I've not seen "Three Comrades", but thanks to this thread, it is safely on my TiVo and ready to watch this weekend! I'll be TiVo'ing "My Man Godfrey" as well!
  4. Some actors who I'd like to see get a day in Summer Under the Stars: Montgomery Clift Ronald Colman Charles Boyer Rock Hudson Errol Flynn I didn't have TCM 2 summers ago, but I don't think any of these guys had a day last August, anyway....
  5. Meh. Ignore the idiots. They are just trying to get a rise out of you. So don't give 'em the satisfaction.
  6. I really wish they would bring up the standards on the Walk. At one time, it was an honor afforded to individuals with substantial accomplishments, not to guys who are 'cute' and have a silly minor part on a popular TV show. Might be good to institute rules like the sports halls of fame have. You can't get a star as a flash-in-the-pan. Your work should be able to stand the test of time.
  7. That is good news. I'm glad they are giving Robert Montgomery a day in May. I was looking forward to a few of the pre-empted films as well, as I'd not seen a couple of them. I understand and appreciate why they did it. But I'll be thrilled when they make us whole by showing the films that were eliminated in January.
  8. I'd love to see the proof for all of these charges you made. I mean, from a source OTHER than Bill O'Reilly and Fox News. But you know what? Believe what you want to believe. Believe O'Reilly and Coulter if you like. Help these jerks to fuel the hatred that is growing in this country every single day, instead of helping to bring about healing. Help them in their quest to prove themselves 'right', at a cost of moving us in the direction of full-scale revolt and unrest. Help them to destroy families that are now divided because of politics. Mothers and daughters and sisters and br
  9. Actually, I strongly disagree that Bill O'Reilly deals in "facts". He deals in SELECTIVE facts that support his positions. And disregards facts that do not. And to me, that's a million times worse than the silliness Jon Stewart dishes out on his show. At least with Jon's show, it's clear that he is blowing things out of proportion with the aim of making cynical jokes and making people laugh. He doesn't pretend that he is giving a factual account that people should actually believe as gospel truth - it's clear that he's just taking selective facts and making jokes out of them - to
  10. Matt, I've not seen Letterman lately, so I can't comment on his political commentary one way or the other. In truth, about the only late-night talk show I ever watch is Jon Stewart, and that is because he is always, 100% of the time, good for a laugh. And thus worth staying up for. I don't watch Jon every day, but at least a couple of times a week. Not to 'get my news'. But simply to have a good laugh and end the day on a good note. And Melanie, I was *not* implying that *you* got your news from TV. In fact, quite the opposite because you said as much earlier in the thread.
  11. scarlett, I hope you don't think I was saying that people should buy movies rather than request them, cus that wasn't what I meant. And certainly not everyone has the means (or the space, for that matter) to do that. My point was that people need to afford others a bit of consideration when posting requests, and at least make a minimum amount of effort toward suggesting a film that is perhaps a bit more difficult to find than say, screenings of Casablanca. *lol*
  12. Some classic films that I consider practically essential: Casablanca To Have and Have Not The Maltese Falcon The African Queen Treasure of the Sierra Madre Sunset Boulevard Double Indemnity It Happened One Night Bringing Up Baby North By Northwest Rear Window Vertigo Mr. Smith Goes to Washington The Philadelphia Story The Letter Jezebel Now, Voyager The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex The Sea Hawk Captain Blood Gaslight Love Affair Notorious Dr. Zhivago Mildred Pierce Grand Hotel Queen Christina Going My Way Top Hat Singin' in the Rain Yankee Doodle Dandy
  13. This really annoys me too. And some of the films suggested on there are films that have not only been shown *once* recently, but SEVERAL times in the past few months! I mean, there is really no need to suggest "Bringing Up Baby". Good grief, they play that thing about 8 times a year! And as much as I personally adore "Casablanca", I want to pull my hair out when I see that suggested, because at least on MY TiVo (which shows a little over two weeks in forward programming at any given time), when I pull up my Bogie Wishlist, that film is practically *always* on there! It is shown at l
  14. Also, to those of you out there who like "Jeremiah Johnson". I love that film too. But until now, didn't know alot of other people who did.
  15. Thanks jarhfive! I'll keep my eyes peeled for "Nightmare Alley". Do you know if it is it likely to come up on TCM? Or will I need to find it online? I'm really excited about watching "The Razor's Edge". I just looked Tyrone Power up in the database and am embarassed to discover that I've only seen two of his films before now.
  16. I agree Matt. I watch Jon Stewart all the time (and no, I don't count that show as a 'news source'), and I also think he shows all of his guests the utmost courtesy. In the past few months, I've seen him interview Jimmy Carter and I've seen him interview John McCain, among others (those examples are meant to illustrate one prominent person from each side of the aisle - not an exhaustive listing of political guests). And he acted exactly alike toward each of them. When he puts clips from individuals in congress on to make fun of them, I've seen both Republicans and Democrats being mad
  17. Well, thanks to reading this thread, I picked up what is no doubt a great film at a cheap price today. Was wondering around Best Buy at lunch and came upon a copy of "The Razor's Edge" really cheap, so I picked it up. I've only seen 1 or 2 Tyrone Power films before this one, so I'm looking forward to it.
  18. Hey! Wow! Thanks everyone, for your suggestions! I've seen some of the films recommended so far...but there are alot here that I've not seen yet. So now I have some additinal films to watch for! Yay! Keep 'em comin' folks!
  19. No, I've not read the book yet. To be honest, I assumed that it probably wasn't in print anymore, and so I've never even tried to locate a copy! But I might get on Amazon and see what I can come up with there. I really love that film - not only because Bette Davis and Charles Boyer did a fabulous job...but also because the story is just such a great tear-jerker!
  20. Hi Shelly, Thanks very much for your reply. I've seen a few of those, but most I've not seen yet. So I very much appreciate the suggestions! And yeah, I'm hoping to get a really good list going, so hopefully others will respond. There are just so many movies out there! You can turn on the TV and watch whatever happens to be on, I suppose (and sometimes, I do that!)...but given my time limitations and the fact that I can TiVo whatever I like and so am not limited by TV schedules and real-life commitments, I'd like to get a list of films to watch out for and grab on TiVo when the
  21. Okay. So I've enjoyed classic film my entire life, but it's only been in the last 3 years or so that I've become addicted to TCM and started to turn a casual interest into a full-fledged hobby. Since I work and am quite busy IRL, I've really tried to focus my efforts over the past couple of years...with the help of my TiVo. As a result, I've seen almost all of the classic films on the AFI's 'top 100' list, as well as focusing alot of effort on seeing a large chunk of films done by the following actors: Humphrey Bogart (and Lauren Bacall, to a degree as well) Cary Grant Charles Boye
  22. I like them both quite alot and think they are both tremendously talented. But if I had to pick, I'd pick Bette Davis.
  23. Easiest question ever! And for me, there is only one answer: Vivien Leigh That whiny southern accent gets on my last nerve. I love Clark Gable and I love Marlon Brando...but she has single-handedly ruined both "Gone With the Wind" and "A Streetcar Named Desire" for me.
  24. What's wrong with Jon Stewart? I think he's hilarious. But then, I'm a firm believer in learning to laugh at ourselves...and to not take ourselves too seriously. Something we've been doing WAY too much of for WAY too long. And I DON'T think you have to hate Jon Stewart in order to be patriotic either.
  25. I never get tired of watching these films, and have seen them all many times: Now, Voyager All This and Heaven Too Love Affair The Nun's Story Doctor Zhivago Casablanca To Have and Have Not All That Heaven Allows More recent favorites: The English Patient Out of Africa The Bridges of Madison County The Joy Luck Club Dances With Wolves Amadeus Reality Bites The Matrix Of the above, the ones I watch most (at least twice a year, plus any other time I want a 'comfort film' ) are: Doctor Zhivago All This and Heaven Too The English Patient Out of Africa The Brid
