Any "Lost" Films You'd Like TCM To Show?

Recommended Posts

There's a few Warner Bros films from the dawn of sound that I would like to see. **** Tonk with Sophie Tucker (1929) My Man with Fannie Brice(1928), and the first Goldiggers

(1929). MGM has the Rogue Song with Lawrence Tibbet and Laurel and Hardy!. RKO has the Cuckoos with Wheeler and Woolsey. Turner has Cuckoos but has not shown it in many years.The others as of today have not been found. Oh well....

I was lucky enough to see the first "Golddiggers of Broadway" back on AMC when it was still a worthwhile station. It was a great movie, I only wish I'd taped it, since they never played it again. I've requested it on TCM, but they've never played it.


I also love the suggestions of "She" and "The Rogue Song" - I'd like to see those myself.

Hello carljackdarrow,


Yes sirree! You got it, my friend. ...I'll be damned!

Thanks for playin' along. The next time we mosey over to the ol' saloon, the drinks are on me! ...You take the front door---I'll take the back. ;-)


And, I agree. "Blood Money" is a gooood one! Have only seen it twice---can't remember how or where. Very unique film in many ways.

any longer, but I've never seen it show up anywhere.


"White Gold" the silent film starring Jetta Goudal.


I've read an interesting synopsis of this well known film from the late 1920's, plus it would be nice to see Ms. Goudal in her prime.


If anyone can find it, TCM can!

I want to see a really lost film...CONVENTION CITY, the nastiest of all pre-Codes.


How sad a copy has yet to turn up. I still cherish the hope that someday, this truely lost film will resurface and I'll get a chance to view it.

alix - I think TCM showed this during their pre-code festival no? I might be wrong - Paty would know. But I remember seeing it listed, so maybe there's a chance it will be played in the future.


Another "lost film" I'd like to see is the 1935 version of "People Will Talk" with Roland Young, Mary Boland, and Paulette Goddard. I have a great still from it, but have never been able to see it.


I'd also like to see "The Yellow Ticket" from 1931 with Lionel Barrymore and Laurence Olivier. I heard this is a very good film, and it was directed by Raoul Walsh.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but I would love to see a copy of Joan Crawford's Letty Lynton show up!


I would also like to see The Divine Lady with Corinne Griffith and Scarlet Pages with Elsie Ferguson again on TCM. I don't think they have been on for a very long time.

My list includes movies that almost certainly exist but for some reason or another are never on TV and have never been issued for home video in any format. A few others I've listed may turn up but never in widescreen, and some I may simply have missed if they have been on. One or two of these are repeats from earlier in this thread, but here goes:


All Charlie Chan films not already on home video (a few earlier Fox titles are lost, though)

"M" (1951 Losey version)

"I, the Jury" (1953)

"Sands of the Kalahari"

"Ride Lonesome" (lbx)

"Seven Men From Now"

"Sergeants 3"

"Ace in the Hole" (a.k.a. "The Big Carnival")

"Hangover Square"

"The House on Telegraph Hill"


"The Phenix City Story"

"Let's Kill Uncle" (a.k.a. "Let's Kill Uncle, Before Uncle Kills Us")

"The Brasher Doubloon"

"Somewhere in the Night"

Dan, I think "Seargents 3" has been on the Fox Movie Channel, or perhaps Encore. I know I've seen it on one of the movie stations. And "Hangover Square" is a Fox film, so perhaps the Fox Movie Channel will play it sometime, if they haven't already. They have a website, I think it's simply foxmoviechannel.com.

"Sergeants 3" is a UA film, so it likely wasn't on FMC, and may be controlled by Sinatra's estate. It could run on Encore, but from the IMDb user comments, it seems like the film has been withheld from broadcast by any network for years.


I have a shaky dupe of "Hangover Square" from a friend's tape made off AMC before they jumped the shark, maybe from a late-'80s airing. Skinemax runs a lot of obscure old Fox films, as I've mentioned in another thread, so there may be some hope there for seeing this film. It doesn't seem to be on the DVD horizon, although if Fox can turn loose of "Nightmare Alley" for DVD (next month), they can find a way to release "Hangover Square."


I don't think FMC has ever aired the film, and they're not scheduled to through mid-July. I visit their website a lot. You can get their future schedules (beyond the current month) by clicking on the "weekly schedule" button and then "next week's schedule" over and over until the listings run out. They add a few listings every day or two to the end of the schedule.

the house on telegraph hill is anexcellent film TCM needs

to get the rights of to show. One of Richard Baseheart's

best performances i think. Saw this movie on the fox movie channel several times, spell bounding each time i've seen it, i can't wait until it comes out on DVD.

Dan, I didn't realize you were privy to the Fox Channel website, and I'm glad you are! Yeah, I know what you mean about the scrolling. Personally I think it's a lousy set up for their schedule, they should do it like TCM does.


Anyhow, I could swear I saw "Sergeants 3" on T.V. someplace, and this was within the last year or so. So keep your eye out, you never know. And that's funny what you said about "Skinemax" - that channel's very pornographic nowadays, but like you said, they do show obscure classics, usually in the morning. I've also noticed a lot of classics on the HBO "Signature" station in the early morning. Although their films are usually more well known, but, you never know what they'll play. I think "The Movie Channel" also shows classics from time to time.

a great movie.


It kind of reminds me of that Stanwyck film, "No Man of Her Own" which is the Cornell Woolrich tale of mistaken identity. And HOTH also stars Valentina Cortese, of the Fellini films like "Juliet of the Spirits". She was also great in "Jesus of Nazareth".


Basehart is one of my favorite actors, and so underrated. I shall always think of him as the Fool who taunted Anthony Quinn in "La Strada".


HOTH is a wonderful film for TCM to find and show hopefully.
