Thanks,windy for the scope on" Mating of Millime" I will be watching MAC a little closer. I now have a partner for the classic movies. Mydaughter is really into old movies, It's great fun to be able to tellher all the names of all of the old actors and caresses that she watches or when we watch together. usually have a story about something that was capping in my life when I first saw the movie. Of course I can remember all the old movies ,from start to finish, butnow I can sit and watch almost the whole thing before I know I have seen it, But you save money that way. so long P.

The music passage that recurs through that piece is part of the wonderful "Citizen Kane" soundtrack written by Bernard Herrman. It's the part where you see Charles Foster Kane as a young boy sledding down the hill near his mother's boarding house. Such a magical passage of music!!

What is the movie that features Marion Davies, Gary Cooper and Frederick March? Gary Cooper was an artist and Frederick March was a writer and I've forgotten what Marion Davies role was. 1930 something?

Marino cavies and Gray Cooper were in Operator 13 (1934). It was a drama set in the Civil War. She plays a double role as a spy disguise as a slave/northern belle. Cooper plays apt. Jack Gailliard a Southern officer who falls for cavies. She is delightful in this movie. As far as I know cavies and Fredric March were never in a film together.

...you're referring to DESIGN FOR LIVING, which actually starred Miriam Hopkins alongside Cooper and March, directed by Ernst Lubitsch from the Noel Coward play.

That's the one! Miriam Hopkins. I stand corrected. Thank you. I haven't seen that film in a long time. Do you think TCM will show it in the near future?

I don't see it on the playlist for August, but that shouldn't stop you from requesting it. Please use the "Request a Movie" link and put let the programming folks know that you'd like to see it.

This movie takes begins on a train. A woman is reading a book (which is upside down) and sitting across from her is, ironically the author of this book. They hit it off,--meet again later and eventually marry. The woman, however is extremely possessive and ends up killing her sister and later she becomes pregnant and falls down a flight of stairs killing her own baby. (Essentially, no one must come between her and her husband.) I believe the location is in upstate New YOrk. Does this plot ring a bell with anyone? Pls help.THanks!

Read the book. It's a good story. I think that there have been lots of movies based on the book "Lost Horizons" and its Shangri-La. I also haven't gone through one year of scholar's bowl in high school without a question about it at the meet.

I started to watch a Gregory Peck movie one afternoon and had to go before I could finish it. At the beginning, he takes a train, meets a woman, and follows her to a gambling resort. In black and white. Does anyone know the title?

Last week I was watching the 80s version with Robert Redford and remembered seeing a more recent version starring Gwyneth Paltrow. But, when I looked for it on IMDB, it wasn't listed. There was a TV version, but that's not the one I saw. It wasn't listed on IMDB's Paltrow filmography, either.Am I crazy, or has anyone else seen this particular version? I don't know if the name of it was "The Great Gatsby" but it was definitely the same movie, same character names, plot, etc. Can anyone verify this?

This John Wayne film, one of the first Flight disaster movies, is never aired on the classic movie channels. Also I seldom hear the song on classic radio. Can someone provide me with a reason for the classic movie channels not showing this great film, Thanks, Orville

You're not crazy. A&E produced a television adaptation of the book, which it aired last spring. The female star was Mira Sorvino, though, not Gwyneth Paltrow. (BTW: The Redford version of "Gtasby" was actually made in 1974, not in the '80s.)

Thanks.Of course, we can only clarify TCM policy, not that of other classic movie channels.

Hard to imagine anyone duplicating that plot!! I believe the title you're looking for is "Leave Her to Heaven" (1945), starring Gene Tierney and Cornell Wilde. Although melodramatic, it has fabulous, Oscar-winning color cinematography by Leon Shamroy, and the film offered the glamorous Tierney one of her most memorable roles.

Many years ago I saw a Western movie about some people who are defending themselves against the American Indians. I believe the people are in a fort or some such. There is a tunnel through the mountain where the people put up torches at night to spot the Indians coming through the tunnel. The Indians shoot out the torches with their bows and arrows one at a time. This is little to go on but I wonder if anyone has a suggestion. Thanks a million.-Paula

A few months ago we watched a movie about survivors in a life boat at sea. It was black and white and we guessed it would be the 40s or early 50s. We believe it aired on TCM.The officer on the boat made some very tough decisions about who to throw out of the over crowded boat and, once wounded himself decided he should go, too. The folks in the boat rallied around him momentarily, but in the end, with rescue in sight, they abandoned him and blamed him for the deaths of others. The trailing narration said he stood trial and served time.That's about all we remember. I've searched the site for about an hour. Any thoughts on the name of this movie?

Many years ago (in the 1940s), I saw a movie that included a scene where someone riding on a train drew eyeglasses on a newspaper picture that led to identifiying a murderer. The hero, I think, went to the house of the victim and entered by breaking a window next to the door. Can you tell me what movie I was watching? It was a b&w movie.ThanksSteve

We found it!Abandon Ship 1957 with Tyrone Power.from www.allmovie.com:In this supenseful and provocative high-seas drama, the captain of a luxury liner is suddenly faced with life or death decisions when his ship sinks, leaving himself and a few survivors floating at sea in an overcrowded lifeboat that does not contain enough food, water and medical supplies to support them all. The captain is a decent fellow, but soon it becomes all too clear that he must get rid of the sick and dying. It is a mortally wounded ship's officer who makes this clear to the captain by sacrificing his own life for the others. At first the others are appalled as he and his other officer begin the grim process. The captain's girl friend loudly protests, but there is little she can do. Soon the others rally to support the captain, but when a rescue ship finally appears, they turn on him and condemn him to a watery death. In Great Britain the story is titled Seven Waves Away.
