I'm sure there are several films that are hard to find on TV, streaming, renting, and even purchasing. For me, I'm working on finding a couple of Fred Astaire films that are impossible to find. Even physical copies are not compatible to US. You Were Never Lovelier Let's Dance I hope TCM will have these films on TV. What else should they add? Anyone know of other sources to watch hard to find films?
Well even though i watch t.c.m.I'm not much of a fan.They don't have enough variety for choices although a.m.c and fox movie channel is worst,but, they, t.c.m. introduce a never before seen classic once in while,which is really not a enough.Many immortal historical classics ,made by Warner and m.g.m.have yet to be put back ,like under a Texas moon ,Viennese nights ,His glorious night.They have not played Norma shears first talkie since 1995,nor have they premiered the remake ,produced in 40 .They are not very open to history .They have not premiered any other film made under the third Reich ,since 2001.They won't premier any German or Austrian film made right after the war neither ,recently after . They will play occasionally films made under the Russian Communist regime ,but they are too careful about what they show .Yet they will show a lot of Asian films many made under Hirohito and Tojo regime.They will show our own bad history and not concern that this might offend others .That is a double standard . Although this is Warner home video department ,they are not restoring the wonderful world of brother grim ,cause they don't want profit in the long run .They got to have it now. Back to t.cm.I'm having stream problem with one of their movies in on demand .They are not fixing. Their t.c.m. film festival is too hight they don't offer individual tickets to individual movies.You got buy a whole 5 or 6 movies full.or more. I been studying film history for years without going to college .I know many classic film collecting dust at the u.c.l.a archive Rather see classic films my way than Time warner corporate way .If i relied on t.c.m. I would have missed seeing many classic,that Time Warner don't control.It's like rejection the flat version of money from home cause you want to see the 3D version.
i just found out tha Norma Shearer's first talkie,The Trial of Mary Dugan, is not a lost holy grail ,as I thought .It is a part of the t.c.m. library.They had broadcasted it some time back..How could I have missed this .I been begging them to show it .Why did they not played it the two time they made tribute to her ,more recent last year.They own it .I already asked for an attempted request for them to show it again soon
