Kyle, those pictures of Barbara are fantastic--especially the last one! But then she was gorgeous throughout her entire life. I actually debated with my avatar. Solo Barbara as Sugarpuss from 'Ball of Fire'? Miriam Deering from 'Charlotte'? But when I saw the picture of Joseph Cotten AND Barbara tog...

Sister Luke, a stern & condemning Woman of the Church, who, in her first 2 days, has posted over 90 messages. She's up to about 114. I haven't checked the TCM boards in a few days. I usually go to check if I have any PM's, but I think my PM box over there is broken. I sent a bunch out in early Apri...

My avatar is from The Man With a Cloak (1951). It's a decent, little mystery movie that pops up on TCM every now and then. Leslie Caron is in it as well.

I just love the picture of them. Two of my favorites in one photo and Joseph Cotten with a mustache to boot. You can't beat that!

I really hope that the reissue of this movie is a good print. I've heard of so many classics being reissued, and they just reuse the same print that was used in the first run. I was very disappointed that TCM didn't show this one during Jean Arthur's SotM tribute in January, since this is the first ...

Kyle, with your reasoning, TCM should certainly look into hiring you as a Co-host for The Essentials. It would certainly be better than listening to Osborne and Fisher giving their somewhat lacking explanations! They don't seem to actually enjoy the movies they're telling us to watch. Weird. Bob Hop...

It's terribly embarrassing to even admit this, but I'm horribly addicted to Flavor of Love and all its various spin off shows (Flavor of Love 2, I Love New York and now Charm School). I always feel like dousing myself in bleach and getting a penicillin shot after watching them. I swear, after each e...

Favorite TV shows

You're my kind of people. All of my friends loved Friends and Seinfeld. I always took great pride in the fact that I never did, although this kept me out of the "current" loop whenever people would discuss them. Ah well. I don't watch a lot of current tv, but I've always been a big comedy person. Al...

Sue Sue, thank you for posting the review on the Ava Gardner book. She's an actress that I've really been enjoying lately, so I've been interested in the Love is Nothing biography. I try to gauge what a book is like by reading the reviews on Amazon, but they're not very helpful at times. I usually g...

That Touch of Mink--*why?*

Don't get me wrong--I LOVE Doris Day movies. I love Cary Grant movies. And yet, this has to be one of the worst Doris Day performances I've seen. Her actions are questionable and the situations they put her in are completely ridiculous for a woman in her mid-30's. The only bright spots in the movie ...

Jon, I actually had the same reaction as you. I thought, "No way can I watch this!" I even flipped on the digital cable guide to see what else was on. Seeing my options, I wound up sticking with TCM, since I wanted to see the other two Lost and Founds. I'm so glad I did. I think out of all the L&F's...

I love how A Face in the Crowd and Network were shown back to back, since those two movies really compliment each other in mocking and revealing how people will take in anything as long as it's on the tv. If you're going for advertising and duping people, I think you could throw in Will Success Spoi...

I just want to throw in my thanks for setting up this place as well. Unless there's some major work done, I think the TCM board is a-goner. And while the Yahoo group was nice, I prefer the message board format (and you get to have an avatar next to your name! I love it!) It will be nice to have a sa...
