  1. As a young girl growing up, I LOVED to watch old classic movies with my grandmother and mother late at night. SOme nights my grandmother and I would stay up all night long watching classic movies (when I was out of school for summer). My all time favorites are those classic comedy/thrillers. The ones that have a madman or ghost on the loose, that involves some comedy team or man/woman in a mansion or estate. A few examples are :Ghostbreakers, Scared Stiff (Lewis and Martin),Canterville Ghost, and Murder, He Says. I know there are many of these, but these are all I can think of right now. Pretty much any old b&w movie with a "haunted" or "Spooky" going on and a comedy actor, will work. Please help me out by giving me a list of some of the ones anyone can think of. One of the ones I wanted to see was the Corpse came C.O.D. . Of course, I flubbed up and missed it. Any idea where I might be able to get a copy? yanknrebel
  2. Well thank you for that correction. Sorry bout that. She was a very good actress and a delight in this film. As well, I loved the balck face act. I find nothing offensive about it, but then again, I am caucasian. yanknrebel
  3. Ok, I found the title I was looking for. Not sure if it was the one you meant. Wake Me When It's Over 1960-USA-Satire/Military Comedy N.Y. Times Review by Bosley Crowther PLOT DESCRIPTION Wake Me When It's Over is a zany service comedy in which Ernie Kovacs plays the latest in his long line of military captains. Kovacs and his men are stationed at a dead-end Japanese island. World War II vet Dick Shawn, redrafted through a clerical error, arrives on the island and decides to liven things up. Using the materials at hand, he supervises the building of a hotel, using the island girls as the staff. The military brass investigate when it's obvious than the servicemen are having too much fun on the island. Kovacs would love to have Shawn stay, and says so at Shawn's court-martial, but the reluctant draftee is mustered out of the service as accidentally as he'd been brought back in. Ernie Kovacs and Dick Shawn work so well together in Wake Me When It's Over that one can only feel an intensified loss over the early deaths of these two comic masters. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide ?

  4. I rememebr a movie like this, but sadly, not sure of titel either. The one I am thinking about is full of "stars" . They are on an island and take "surplus" of the Navy and end up building a large Hotel. There were geisha girls in it that played hostesses, and maids, etc. All the local people were employed at this hotel . Of course all heck broke loose when the war dept found out that the old parachutes and surplus etc were used in this way. It is a very funny movie, and I too would like the name of this movie. yanknrebel
  5. I love "The Uninvited" as well as "Rose Red'. Another that I love is "Ghost Story" with Fred Astaire and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. VERY good ghost story. The "Lady in white" is another good movie. yanknrebel
  6. Thanks Bill. I had a feeling it may not be a good thing to ask. Now I know. yanknrebel
  7. There was a movie that I saw as a young girl that the only thing I remember is that at the end of the movie a house is burning and Medusa with her head of snakes is burning in the house. I know this is not much to go on, but I can't seem to find anything about Medusa that sounds like this movie. I think it was a colored movie, but more like a 60 or 70 era movie. Any ideas? yanknrebel
  8. Would you be interested in selling a copy of Dark Secret of Harvest Home? Yanknrebel
  9. This was answered on another post. "If A Man Answers" with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin Super cute movie. Now out on release.
  10. Ok, I have gotten on a kick of finding old clasic movies that somehow my family and I (avid classic movie watchers for years) have missed. I found a name of one the other day and wanted to know if anyone has ever seen it and if so what did you think of it or where might I find a copy? It is"If You Could Only Cook" with Jean Arthur. yanknrebel

  12. I have seen I was a male war bride. Very funny as well. Love Cary in the wig. LOL. I also love him in Monkey Business with Ginger Rogers. That part is perfect for her, as is her part in The Major and the Minor. Any other suggestions?
  13. Mine is, without a doubt, HOLIDAY INN. It is so funny and has some really great musical numbers in it. I really love the French dance scene where Astaire is trying to kiss Bing's girl, and Bing jazzes it up and slows it down just as Astaire goes in for a move. LOL So funny. Then you have to love the maid, Hattie McDaniel. "Is yo name's Mamie"? I love that line. yanknrebel
  14. The Awful Truth? Cary Grant and Irene Dunne.!!! I have seen it and it is Hilarious. I LOVE it when Irene Dunne pretends to be Grants "cousin" to new wife. Now what is the other movie of this same storyline? Give me some more great comedies allong this line. I LOVE TCM and love this great message board. Thanks for the welcome. yanknrebel
  15. Just wanted to say I LOVE this message board site. Thanks to some messages I found one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I found a copy of "Merrily We live". I have never seen this film, but sat up till 3 am watching this movie by myself. I laughed my head off. I especially loved the beginning part where the last butler Ambrose had stolen the silverware, so the family was using all sorts of family utensils to eat breakfast with. That was hilarious. I would LOVE to hear everyone's favorite classic comedy. This one ranks right up there with "Murder he says,"" Ghostbreakers ", "It's a wonderful world", and "It happened one night "just to name a few. yanknrebel
