  1. I waited a week to gather my thoughts and marinate my response to the new look of TCM and what it means to me as a fan & viewer and what it means as to where we are today and where we are headed in the future. As a middle-aged millennial woman who spent a childhood of vhs video cassette tapes being borrowed from the library or local video store who remembers TCM from the beginning with Robert Osbourne and the old sets it is a culture shock because with every passing hear since he's been gone it seems the powers that be of TCM are drifting further away from the original format. W
  2. As a middle-aged millennial who doesn't consider herself to be a millennial, I have to say that I have long been the exception not the rule in this subject matter. I remember watching Nick-At-Nite as a child in elementary school grades and TV Land long before they aired original programming and shows from the 1980's and 1990's. I've always loved history and have been fascinated by the moments in time along with the music and style of midcentury America taking place before my birth. Mad Men has been my favorite original television series on cable since it's debut on AMC. TCM h
  3. I actually have two favorite Christmas movies : It's A Wonderful Life (1946) and White Christmas (1954) While I enjoy the Technicolor musical film that is White Christmas It's A Wonderful Life really tugs at the heart. All of us at one time or another have felt like George Bailey maybe not the suicide attempt but to the point of frustrating madness and despair over a situation which leads us to question our mortality and if our life has had any real purpose. It's one of my favorites to watch every year around the holiday,
  4. I have to agree - there have been too many recent films on TCM. I wasn't a fan of Women Make Film. I looked through the schedule at the time and was not sure what to make of the selections only because even though the theme was meant to honor the films & the female filmmaker there were a lot of recent films being featured on the schedule. I love the month features of TCM and the songs playing in the background as the various scenes from films featured in the month play out on screen. They're so adorable! I get so excited when it gets to the end of the month anticipatin
  5. At first I didn't like the look of the schedule and I'm still not crazy about it but I can learn to live with it - I guess they want a more simplified look for the website. I do like how the website has been updated in general but it's still not taking to me.
  6. Oh how I love threads with these types of lists! Here are my picks : ❤ • Harold Lloyd : One of the most influential actors of the silent film era and a man who stayed married to his beloved bride Mildred Davis til her death in 1969. • Douglas Fairbanks : As a fan of Mary Pickford and classic film fan I'm aware of who Douglas Fairbanks is though I can't say I've seen any of his films! • John Garfield : Before Montgomery Clift and Marlon Brando, James Dean and Paul Newman there was only one John Garfield. Enough said. • Paul Newman : What a magnificent actor and beautiful
  7. I'm currently listening to a podcast. It's an oldies music radio show podcast I discovered while on an internet search for a oldies radio show. It's called Rockin Eddy's Oldies Radio Show. You can listen on Tune In or Player FM.
  8. Here's my list of favorite in-color movie musical films : • The Wizard Of Oz (1939) • Meet Me In St. Louis (1944) • Anchors Aweigh (1945) • On The Town (1949) • Singin' In The Rain (1952) • Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954) • White Christmas (1954) • West Side Story (1961)
  9. The other evening on TCM I happened to catch CITIZEN KANE ('41) it was one of the best films I've ever seen. It's really something to watch a picture made years ago that could very well be made to fit today's current news of the world.
