1279 and 1280 I haven't seen. I might have seen 1276, but it's been awhile.

I absolutely adore 1273 (Bette Davis is so great in here).  1277 is watchable to me if only for Robert Mitchum (Rock Hudson just never floated my boat, so to speak).

1278 is definitely not one of my favorites despite the presence of Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones (still can't believe Jones won an Oscar for that film when he turned in far more Oscar worthy performances before and since then).

1275 is memorable for the car chase but that's all I can say for it.

1272 I like to watch when it comes on.

1271 I feel it must be Follow the Fleet. Not sure which other films had Fred in a military uniform. I don't think I've ever seen this one all the way through.

1272 is probably The Paradine Case, which I have seen.

1273 is Phone Call from a Stranger. I think maybe it finally aired on TCM, though I watched it a long time ago on YouTube.

1274 is Auntie Mame. Yes.

1275 is Bulitt. Yes.

1276 is Travels with My Aunt. Yes

1277 I have some guesses based on Beth's comments, but I wouldn't have known without them, so I'll just say I don't know.

1278 is The Fugitive. Yes.

1279 is Dreamgirls. Yes.

1280 is The Old Man and the Gun. No.

I think I've seen seven, which is probably my high on these new (post-1,000) lists.

I agree that Bette Davis does a fine job in that film, despite it being a role limited in screen time. She makes the most of it without being too showy. In fact I think it's better than her Oscar-winning work.

Tommy Lee Jones was going to get an Oscar somewhere along the way. He starred in the sequel. I think it was called U.S. MARSHALS but I haven't seen it.

Oh man, I feel like such a fool....I thought that was from ALL ABOUT EVE, but looking closer at the pic I can see now it isn't.

Never seen PHONE CALL FROM A STRANGER.

They were also in a British film noir around the same time, called ANOTHER MAN'S POISON (1951). But PHONE CALL FROM A STRANGER is the one to watch in my opinion.

Not sure if saw Travels With My Aunt or The Ambassador but saw all the rest 

THE AMBASSADOR was Rock Hudson's final feature film. He looks rather healthy. Hard to believe he would be dead from AIDS a year later.

Never seen The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, I think the only Fred and Ginger pairing I haven't at least seen part of.

It happens to be my favorite Fred & Ginger flick, probably because when I was a kid just discovering classic film, it was the first one of theirs I watched on the old American Movie Classics channel. TCM seldom plays it, but the production values are outstanding. It's based on a true story. And the supporting cast is fantastic-- Walter Brennan and Edna May Oliver in particular.

1282, 1283, and 1290 are the ones I like the most in here.

1285 I don't know if I've seen. It looks familiar, but I can't quite place it. I know I haven't seen 1288 and 1289.

I am struggling with most of these. Here's what little I know or can guess at:

1281 is probably Garbo and Gilbert, but I don't watch many silents and can't identify it.

1283 is Red River. Yes.

1286 Ha ha ha, I didn't know Charles Bronson and John Denver ever made a movie together! Oh God, Do You Have a Death Wish? Oh, wait, maybe that's a woman ... I haven't seen it, whatever it is.

1288 is Thunderheart. No.

1289 is probably Mamma Mia! No.

1290 is Lincoln. Yes.

The others I have no idea.

Only two I can confirm that I've seen.

It's been awhile since 1285 has aired on TCM. 

1286 is sort of a "cult" film. Highly watchable. There is no dialogue in the first 20 minutes. It's all about Bronson doing surveillance watching people. Sort of like REAR WINDOW. A bit later in the story, we learn he's not a fed but he's a hit man. And then he crosses paths with Jan-Michael Vincent who wants to be taught the ropes on how to be a successful killer, just like Bronson. So it sort of morphs into an unusual buddy film.

I love 1288 and am a bit disappointed it doesn't have a higher rating on the IMDb.

You're right about 1281. It's a silent film featuring John Gilbert & Greta Garbo.

1286 stars Charles Bronson & Jan-Michael Vincent.

I just noticed that THE STORY OF VERNON AND IRENE CASTLE (1939) is scheduled to air tomorrow morning on TCM. It rarely plays, so here is your chance to see it! (Looks like it's part of a daytime tribute for Ginger's birthday.)

Ben M. makes fun of the sequel because Meryl isn't in it)

Oddly, I saw the sequel and not the original. And Meryl is in the sequel - she shows up and does one number near the very end.

Why would Ben care about the sequel?

Ask Chaya Bat! I don't know! Although I think I remember him making some kind of joke along the lines of "Having Movie X without doing So-and-So is kind of like making a sequel to Mamma Mia! and not having Meryl Streep in it."

I don't know why he mentioned it (re: Mamma Mia).  Mr. M. often makes cutting or funny remarks (including not liking Some Like It Hot as much as others - he feels it is Tepid not Hot).

  I think I might have seen Thunderheart (is it based on a Tony Hillerman mystery/novel?)

1285 I think I saw years ago.  Not sure about The Mechanic.  Never even heard of 1287.

I have a feeling Ben's humor is an acquired taste for some people. :) 

A novel was published based on the screenplay for THUNDERHEART. Maybe that's what you are referring to?

JANE AUSTEN IN MANHATTAN (1980) screened on TCM back in 2011, when there was a month-long celebration of Merchant-Ivory films.

BUONA SERA MRS. CAMPBELL (1968) aired on TCM near the end of Robert Osborne's run. He had Lee Grant as a guest one evening and she discussed the making of the film in Italy, and what it was like to work with Gina Lollobrigida and Shelley Winters. 

Incidentally, MAMMA MIA! is a musical remake of BUONA SERA MRS. CAMPBELL. The setting was changed from Italy to Greece and the Abba songs were added.
