  1. Sidney Toler in 1938 as Charlie Chan for Charlie Chan in Honolulu Hello TCM Message Board Community Members- The topic of this post is about Sidney Toler and I have information about him I would like to share here. Before I get into the subject of this discussion I would like to mention this my first time interacting on an official movie community board. When I was in college I kept the TV switched to TCM and have been a avid fan of classics since then ( maybe earlier in life too!) I am a member of a number of film groups on Facebook and I am administrator for two Gregory Peck groups. I help moderate several others. I would love to interact with anyone who responds to this post! I would like to introduce myself. I am Lauren Born Ritchie and I am honored and privileged to reintroduce Sidney Toler to this film community the Hollywood Actor also as a Playwright, Theatre Director and my second cousin (yes, I can confidently confirm I am Mr. Toler's living relative) Born Hooper G. Toler, better known as Sidney Toler. Most if not all are familiar with his success as the Chinese American Police Detective Charlie Chan. Respectfully honoring Warner Oland and Roland Winters also cast as Charlie Chan. Sidney played supporting roles in 50 films and was highly regarded as a comic actor on the Broadway Stage. I am delighted in this newest venture of film discovery and history, and proud of my ancestor. I am all about family and eager at the opportunity to learn more about Sidney, sharing and learning about his passion for acting, preserving his life and film legacy. I encourage those in this film community to your continued support of his film work. Thank you, cousin Sidney for taking the chance in pursuing an acting career. You are an inspiration.
  2. Does anyone else think they have suddenly crammed notes from the last 3 weeks and beyond all into today’s (Thursday) material? Yikes!! :spinning head: Or is it me? And a ton of it is all new material about the time line we covered! It’s a 4 week wrap up!
  3. I remember watching a movie on TCM (don't we all) maybe 5 to 6 years ago. I believe it was a film noir, but it could have been a spy/war film. It was in black and white and was probably made post WWII (but maybe not). The scenario that sticks in my mind deals with a good guy who is captured by the guys, then held captive in a room and drugged. Somehow he clears up from the drugs enough to hide in the room and when one of the bad guys comes in the room, he knocks him out and gives him drugs they were going to give him (I think). Then he puts the bad guy in the bed in his place and covers him up with a blanket. A little later another one of the bad guys comes in a stabs the guy in the bed thinking he was the good guy. I can't remember any of the actors, but I keep thinking it was someone like Robert Montgomery, or Dick Powell. But when I looked up their filmographies, I did not think any of their films were the one I was thinking of, so it is very likely not either of them. Any help will be appreciated.
  4. I think, for me, I thoroughly enjoyed The Bad Seed (1956), What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) and The Thing from Another World (1951; despite its corniness; "Keep watching the skies!") What are some y'all have seen that you thought were weird/strange, scary/creepy, or just things that made you think?
