  1. Hi, me and my best friend watched a short back in March/April of 2019 at my grandmothers house and we've been looking for it ever since. It couldn't have been more than 20 minutes long. It was a black and white short, and was set in second person. It was like we were in the movie, the characters all talked to us directly. It was a comedy. Something about being a detective and we were with our detective partner. The only scene we remember is that at one point someone is in an office and a gang of children come in and tell the guy to "sing for us" as in give him information but he proceeds to literally sing them the information on his knees. If anyone has any clues about this please let us know!! We have been looking for years!
  2. There is a new narrator for the “What a Character” segments. Does anyone know who she is? I know she did the narration for Mildred Natwick‘s “What a Character”. Can’t place the voice. Any ideas from knowledgeable fans?
  3. So there was one stop motion animation that I once see on TCM and it really got stuck in my mind since then, but I really couldn't identify what was the name of that animation. All I remember is that the animation starts with the boots of a misterious guy and red paint dripping on his boots from the brush that he's holding , that guy being dressed like a criminal or something, with a long coat, then shows him standing in the middle of the street looking at the window of a guy who lives in a big building with only one window, that one being the window of his apartment.His apartment is empty, and he has only a bed, a clock on the wall (and a table I guess, I don't remember to well).I remember that the misterious guy was trying to kill the one that lives in the apartament trough some ridiculous ways. I can't remember anything else, and that's all that I can relate, but if someone has any idea how this stop motion animation is called , please let me know and thank you.
  4. I saw a short travel film shot in Louisiana on TCM once a few years back, that I'd love to find. It was about a society New York sportswoman, who comes to Louisiana with plenty of fine clothes and custom-made shotguns, to go hunting. She hires a Cajun guide who lives in a cabin on stilts with his family. He takes her into the swamp on a tractor with no tires, it has planks fastened across the wheels to keep it from sinking. There was a glut of travel shorts after WWII, and this was one. I have a Louisiana friend who's dying to see it. Thanks for any advice!
  5. So, here it is: There was a short on TCM Extras, two friends talking about infidelity among women. The first man happens to be cheating on his wife with another woman. He declares his wife would never do such a thing to him. I think the second man was not quite so sure about women always being faithful to their lovers and husbands. The conversation goes on and eventually the cheater leaves. It turns out his wife is cheating on HIM with his best friend/the other guy in the room he was just talking to. I'm entirely unsure about it being a Vitaphone short, but maybe it is? Has anyone ever seen or heard of this short? I'm thinking it was Pre Code because of the content. If anyone can point me in the right direction or knows the name of this short, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance!
  6. Greetings. I am trying to locate a short that I cannot find through IMDB. Back in the mid-80's, I saw a comedy short on TCM that left a definitive impression on me, and now I can't seem to locate it because another version of it was made in 1940 by Del Lord. The title is "Cold Turkey". In Lord's 1940 version, Harry Langdon played the starring role and it took place during the Christmas season. The version I'm looking for took place during Thanksgiving. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
  7. Tonight, we were blessed with a presentation of short subjects. I hope TCM repeats the stunt again, even though many titles were shown before. Profiled a bunch here: http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/tcm-short-subject-schedule-starting-july-12th-2015 Two titles advertised, the Our Gang short Forgotten Babies (1933) and Stop, Look And Listen (MGM 1967), were not shown. My guess is that there was a time restraint. No matter. The latter title gets shown enough. For me, the big highlight was a scrumptious Technicolor print of the Oscar winning A Boy and His Dog (1946). I am not sure if TCM showed this previously, but I have only recalled murky black and white TV prints aired in the past... usually during the "31 Days of Oscars" February sweeps. Perhaps the recent July 7th airing of Technicolor features prompted the good folks on TCM to sniff out a good print from the UCLA archives? (For the record, I did... kinda, sorta... fussed enough online on the other forum about TCM repeatedly airing that same B&W copy. I am such a little brat. Ha ha!) In any case, I hope this is a sign that they will dust off more goodies from the vaults for future airing... and possible DVD release. (*hint hint* A Warner Archive set of Oscar winners and nominees, at least among the MGM and Warner studio shorts, would be mighty nice.) ************************************* Oooooh… what the heck! Might as well place some… ha ha!… “requests” for future airing here. Even if I don’t get them, at least I won’t be guilty for not asking! Since the theme for part of last night (not the first hour though) was Oscar winners… As of today, the following Oscar winning and nominated Warner Brothers shorties haven’t aired on TCM… yet. (*hint hint* Maybe a future Sunday show? Perty please?!) 1.) Double or Nothing (1936, starring Phil Harris ten months before joining Jack Benny’s radio program, and not to be confused with the 1940 title shown by mistake each February) 2.) Little Isles of Freedom (1942) 3.) Task Force (1943) 4.) Cinderella Horse (1948) 5.) Snow Carnival (1949) 6.) Blaze Busters (1950) 7.) World of Kids (1951) 8.) The Seeing Eye (1951) 9.) Thar She Blows! (1952) 10.) Winter Paradise (1953) 11.) This Mechanical Age (1954) 12.) Time Stood Still (1956) 13.) The John Glenn Story (1962) Now… the next trio may have been shown at least once or twice in the past (I think) and have made the DVD cut. However, I can not remember if they have been shown in the last DECADE or not. Might be worth dusting off for a spin. 1.) Women at War (1943) (I believe this is an “extra” on AIR FORCE.) 2.) Spills and Chills (1949) (with DORIS DAY COLLECTION: IT’S A GREAT FEELING) 3.) The Grass Is Always Greener (1949) (with MY DREAM IS YOURS) Once upon a time, way back in the spring of 2010, I did a rundown of all of the Warner Brothers “live-action” short subjects that were Oscar nominated and/or awarded between 1934 and 1962... on the other forum. http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-1 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-2 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-3 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-4 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-5 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-6 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-7 http://fan.tcm.com/blogpost/a-sampling-of-academy-award-winners-and-nominees-part-8 Sadly, TCM doesn’t have access to all of RKO’s shorties, although many (certainly not all) of MGM's are taken care of. Sooo... anybody else with requests here? Personally, I would... also... like a cluster of Joe McDoakes that have NOT been shown on TCM in ages (if at all). I do like the six or seven that are in active rotation, but my all-time favorites haven't been shown as I recall... like: So You Want To Be A Detective (complete with a "proto"-Marilyn Monroe knock-off) So You Want To Throw A Party (games of "post office"... lol!) So You Want To Hold Your Husband (poor Phyllis Coates as Alice! The guy hugs the dog more than her.) So You're Going To Have An Operation (surgeons playing tic tac toe on his belly) So You Want To Be A Paperhanger (note the lump in your wall-paper shaped like human...) So You Want To Get It Wholesale (Frank Nelson's trademark "oooooh") So You Love Your Dog (Could this be THE greatest comedy short of all time?) So You Want To Be Your Own Boss ("Do you have cockroaches?" Watch the bread in Joe's diner move on its own with tiny feet underneath...)
  8. On Sunday, January 11, just before The Maltese Falcon at 2pm ET, a short film on the history of anesthesia, probably from the 1930s was shown. I did not catch the title and any other info in opening credits. Anyone catch the title and other info? Thanks...
