It's nice that I get TCM on Demand via Time-Warner Cable, but I have two complants/requests: (1) The introductions by Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz are not included (although I notice for "Caesar and Cleopatra" it was, perhaps by mistake?). Please include these! They add a lot of value to the viewing! (2) I notice a member listing the TCM on Demand choices for Comcast. It seems that Comcast gets more selections than Time-Warner Cable does, which is very odd since didn't Time-Warner buy out Turner a decade ago?
I just watched Robert's wonderful interview of Debbie Reynolds today, during the Robert Osborne tribute, and absolutely loved the song the used for the credits. But Shazam cannot find it, nor am I able to find it using parts of the lyrics. The lyrics mention "smokey places", but that only leads me to some line-dancing videos on youtube. Thanks!
Aloha! I am trying to remember the title of a film that Robert Osborne lauded as a favorite many years ago. The film takes place after WWII, somewhere in Eastern Europe that was occupied by American troops, but would eventually become part of the Eastern Bloc. I am thinking Hungary, Czechoslovakia or Germany. The film was shot on location and there was an excellent performance by a child actor who came under the wing of a GI. I remember vividly Robert Osborne's sharing the fate of the young actor, who faced persecution once the communist regime had solidified power in the country. I believe the film is in black and white, was produced in the late 1940s and had amazing scenes of the destruction caused by the war. Help, sorry for being so vague! Mahalo
