Mamma Mia is one of the few places I could tolerate Abba songs.  Lee Grant is a fave of mine (she was great in The Detective Story and In the Heat of the Night - HUAC affected both her and her husband).

I was a fan of Robert Osborne and, when he died, enjoyed learning about him.

If I remember correctly, when Lee Grant was on as a guest, she did talk with Robert about the blacklist. They screened a few of her films that night. 

She mentioned how she was cast in THE LANDLORD (1970). She said the producers didn't want to hire her at first because they thought she looked too young and glamorous. She said she had a feisty relative who was exactly like the character in the script. She went to the producer and said she knew this type of woman inside and out...nobody could play it as well as her. She agreed to dress down for the part and wear less make-up. She was given the role, and she's great in the movie.

1291 Based only on Luis Rainer, I'm going to guess The Great Waltz, which I have seen. But I don't know.

1292 Must be Henry V. No.

1294 is The High and the Mighty. Yes.

1296 is Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte. Yes.

1297 is The Deer Hunter. Yes.

1298 must be A Nightmare on Elm Street, though I don't remember Freddie Kruger ever being shaded like that. Almost looks deliberate, to make the movie harder to identify! But I have seen it.

1299 is Reversal of Fortune. Yes.

I haven't seen 1300, and I don't know what the others are. I've seen at least five.

1291 is another Luise Rainer film. In fact it's the last one she did at MGM.

Re: 1298, I picked that particular photo because I wanted one with the girl and the villain. With all the photos of just the villain, it was difficult to tell which movie it was from since his appearance didn't really change from sequel to sequel.

I enjoy 1292, 1294, 1296 (interesting to see Olivia play a baddie for a change),  and 1299.

1300 was alright. 1298 I never got into, or any of the endless sequels it spawned. 1297 was well acted, if a bit overlong.

1291 and 1293 don't look familiar to me. I know I haven't seen 1295.

1291 in MGM's blatant ripoff of RKO's STAGE DOOR. Though with Rainer and Goddard, the acting is way above average.

1293 is airing on TCM tonight. It's a TCM premiere, which is why I included it.  :)

I agree with what you said about 1297. In fact, most of Cimino's films are that way!

I've seen The Deer Hunter, Hush Hush (poor Bruce Dern - killed in Marnie and this film, also, I think, a Western).

Reversal of Fortune yes

No Nightmare films for me.

Didn't see Capote (if that is the film) or Henry V or IV (I think that the actor is Lord Olivier)

Big fan of Louise Rainer (and her last name is similar to my great grandmother's name - and both were Hungarian).  Did anyone see when Robert Osborne interviewed her and he helped her read the questions from fans.  He was a great host and he truly loved the movies.

You dog, you! I noticed you did that! 

Yes, why not advertise a little for TCM. Right?

After all...TCM kindly provides this message board for us fans.

If I can stay up that long, I probably will be. Wish its airing time was switched with The More the Merrier, which I like very much but have seen many times.

Yeah it would have made more sense to kick things off with LOUISA, since it is a premiere. But I think they chose to start with THE MORE THE MERRIER since it's the one where Coburn earned an Oscar. 

If you aren't able to see it on TCM tonight, you may want to check and see if it is on YouTube.

1308 I found to be only a so-so sequel to the far superior 1961's THE HUSTLER.

1306 was watchable but falls short for me to label as a classic. Haven't seen 1302 or 1307. Unsure about 1305.

1301, 1303, 1304 and 1309 are my favorites in here.

Once again I don't know the early ones.

1304 is Pickup on South Street. Yes.

1305 is The Eddy Duchin Story. Yes.

1306 Ha ha, well, it's either The Magnificent Seven or Westworld. I've seen both.

1307 I'm getting very strong deja vu. It may turn out I've seen this one, but right now, I'm not identifying it.

1308 is The Color of Money. Yes.

1309 is Steel Magnolias. Yes.

1310 is Barton Fink. Yes.

If either of my guesses for 1306 are right, then I've seen at least six of these.

Think 1307 is California Split (saw a long time ago - like both leads)

Saw Color of Money and more violent/depressing The Hustler

Steel Magnolias Yes

Barton Fink Yes

Pickup on South Street Yes

I don't know if I've ever seen The Eddie Duchin Story

Saw both Yul films mentioned (love the Mag. 7 theme song - they used to sort-of hum it on Cheers)

Have to wait to see other films.

I did see 1302 (MANPOWER) and I quite enjoyed it, even knowing about the backstage drama between George Raft and Edward G. Robinson.

Haven't seen it awhile, so probably why I didn't recognize it.

Supposedly actress Virginia Hill (girlfriend of gangster Bugsy Siegel) has a bit part in MANPOWER. She was a friend of Raft's.

Oops, both my Brynner guesses were wrong! He wore that outfit a lot, it appears. Come to think of it, I didn't really remember a guitar in either of the movies I guessed.  Well, I guess I've seen only five.

Five isn't bad.
