Hello, I'm going back to the original post's mention of the film "Turnabout". Here is something funny. A couple of days ago, I shopped Amazon.com for dvd items. One of the items I looked at was one of those fifty movie, ten disk dvd collections. One of the fifty films was the film "Topper Returns". ...

Hello, I like the look of the props...gleaming metal, flexi-tubing, pulsing lamps, shiny Martian ships, shiny Martian limbs. Nothing fancy prop-wise, the alien stuff just looks right. Boy, could that lady (Ann Robinson) shriek and...Paul Frees? Love Frees voice. By the way...was the alien ship from ...

Hello, Mrs. Kinross (Celia Johnson) after dinner toast to fighting sailors is simply one of the best couple of minutes in any movie. I don't know why the scene makes me emotional, but I've choked up the three times I've heard Celia Johnson's words. Oh yeah...the movie is In Which We Serve (1942). Ru...

Hello, My favorite "what were they thinking?" movie. You know, The Cobweb plot would have easily translated into the Western genre. In fact, maybe Minnelli wanted to make a Western, but a lot of Westerns were produced around the time of Cobweb's release. Maybe, the suits at MGM said to Vincente Minn...

The trip to Bedrock.

The information written below was accurate five years ago...no attempt has been made to update information after 2002.

Did you know? Internet white pages for the United States lists NO "Fred Flintstone", but I found one address for a "Pebbles Flintstone"?

Movie version of In A Lonely Place...where's the book?

Hello, I am a little over half way through the novel In A Lonely Place...written by Dorothy B. Hughes. You know what? The Humphrey Bogart In A Lonely Place has only the title in common with Hughes' book. The novel In A Lonely Place is the story of a serial killer...from the killer's point of view. P...

MoraldoRubini, I have not watched the Borzage version of Liliom. I read a couple of IMDB reviews of the movie...I guess somewhere a film/tape exists. Based on what I read on IMDB, the movie is merely okay...for Borzage fans/completionists. pktrekgirl, Thank you for your offer of The Blessed Event. I...

Born Reckless...

Hello, A couple of days ago, I watched George O'Brien in Hollywood Cowboy (a TCM broadcast film). When Hollywood Cowboy was over, I was ready for some more George O'Brien. I thought I had seen his name on the sleeve of one of the disks of my recorded dvds (the "not watched" dvd box). So, I looked th...

Jude Cole and Kiefer Sutherland are friends and Mr. Cole invited Kiefer to sing a duet on one of the I Don't Know Why I Act This Way's songs. Is it possible gravely voiced Kiefer Sutherland c...

Hello, Do I like the new Miss Marple? No. I watched about thirty minutes of this weeks episode and (stealing an idea from John, George, Paul and Ringo)...I call the most recent Mystery show Marple's Misery Tour.

Hello, After watching the recent TCM broadcast of Quartet and Trio, my wife purchased the Somerset Maugham novel "The Razor's Edge" at a local junk shop. I'm only fifty pages into the thing...too early to tell if the book is good, or no good. Well, at least I know how the story plays out. That is, i...

Hello, This is a good topic. I recently watched the mid-1950s British film The Dam Busters . Based on a true World War II story, The Dam Busters is a terrific film starring Michael Redgrave and a bunch of other top-notch British performers. I like the movie a lot and I think the movie says all that ...
