You'll have to give us an update/review when you finally get round to watching it.

I am not crazy about The Children's Hour, Charade, or Wait Until Dark.

I did watch My Fair Lady and Sabrina. Started to watch Funny Face, but lost interest.

Kind of missed not having Roman Holiday and Breakfast At Tiffany's.

Not complaining, just hope a TCM programmer reads this.

Question: According to TCM, My Fair Lady was in stereo in 70mm and mono in 35mm. I did not sense stereo sound yesterday. Anyone aware of which version is used by TCM?

I don't know about MY FAIR LADY's sound.

But I did want to say that if TCM showed the same Audrey Hepburn movies every time they had a tribute for her, people would invariably complain about that. :)

I checked My Fair Lady using headphones on Watch TCM. It was in stereo.

I agree. If TCM played my favorites, others would be plenty displeased.

I enjoyed the hosts, which isn't like me. I believe Audrey Hepburn should have sung for herself in My Fair Lady. Alicia talked about it after the movie.

Then Ben went into detail as to why Bogart didn't want to do Sabrina. At least six reasons, but there he was. He was different but excellent.

It's not so much about playing one person's favorites. It's the fact that the star had a long career, and to only limit their retrospective to ten of the more familiar titles seems like a disservice. It should be a comprehensive study, with films from different studios, and films of different genres, whenever possible. In order to get a broader sense of the work they did. My opinion.

Great lineup of Astaire films, and on Gene Kelly's birthday, might I add? :D

I believe Glenn Ford and Debbie Reynolds had become engaged by the time they made the second film a short time later. She was probably still on the rebound from Eddie Fisher. He was between wives. But they soon broke up and Ford fell for his next leading lady (Hope Lange).

THE GAZEBO, a satirical comedy with Carl Reiner and John McGiver inget supporting roles, is a bit better than IT STARTED WITH A KISS.

I saw The Gazebo a long time ago and I remember it as being an above average comedy and well directed. Plan on watching it again soon with my nephew and his wife. They're both thirty. I'm working on getting them to discover how enjoyable classic movies were. I have sort of a list of "essentials lined up, and I consider the the Gazebo to be one. A fast moving, entertaining comedy. Today's comedies are forgettable and formulaic.

Sounds like a good plan. Hopefully they will enjoy it.

I think it's probably smarter to do what you're doing and to start with comedies of the 50s and 60s. 

It might sound sacrilegious on a classic movie board to say this, but I don't think 30s screwball comedies are good when introducing young new viewers to classic comedy. They are just too different, and somewhat artificial, compared to what modern viewers are used to...at least the stuff from the 50s and 60s, especially those suburban comedies, have a bit more 'reality' and are a bit more relatable.

A perfect one would be IT HAPPENED TO JANE (1959), starring Doris Day and Jack Lemmon. It has screwball elements but is also a domestic sort of comedy that people can relate to on some level.

Another one is THE THRILL OF IT ALL (1963) which features Doris Day in a suburban environment.
