What have we learned from Leonard Maltin so far?

Recommended Posts

 

I checked out Leonard's intro to The Way West. No Hollywood gossip,

a pretty straightforward intro, and yes he does seem to talk a little too

fast. I liked Winona too, thought she reminded me a little of Bogart's line

(paraphrased) to Mary Astor in The Maltese Falcon, You're not going to do

that school girl routine again? She was a little school girlish, but a very

charming one. While the hosts can be entertaining, I'm more interested

in watching the movie.

That's beautiful man. You should turn it into a haiku.

 

I third the motion: I think Winona was terrific, although I like her better without the bangs.

Interesting that in Leonard's "Movie Guide" book THE WAY WEST gets a very low rating but he refrained from saying anything bad about it when introducing it on TCM.

And I think that was a very good idea. Let the viewers decide if they like it without the host saying whether they should or not.

I didn't think to check out what the LM guide said, but it was a negatvie

review. Since we don't know who writes which review, maybe that wasn't

his opinion. If it was, he was being diplomatic, and also TCM wouldn't want

to have an intro that trashed the upcoming movie that badly. I think the only

overlap was that both mention it was Sally Field's feature debut.

Since so many of us enjoyed Winona hosting on TCM, can anyone post some "screen captures" of some of her TCM hosting appearances?

LOL. Why isn't your handle "lawyer"?

 

Then people might confuse me with my son who is an immigration attorney. ;)

 

I used to be in TV station marketing/research and used to tell my offspring that we had similar responsibilities. We both had to extol the good side only of our clients while hoping that no one brings up the less complimentary aspects.
